Le Metier De Beaute Ultra Replenishing Solution – Value $225

WOW – $225!! This is an indulgent cream that melts into your skin and has a fresh, minty scent. The only thing that I don’t love about this subscription is that you don’t get the original packaging of the products, so they don’t alway include the ingredients, and Le Metier De Beaute ingredients aren’t easy to find online. (Good news, though, I’ve emailed them before to ask for ingredients and they’ve always gotten back to me with all the details.)

Verdict: This box has a value of $225 for a $29 cost – AMAZING! I’m used to getting makeup products from this subscription, so this rich cream is a nice surprise!

What do you think of the January Beauty Vault VIP box?

  1. I have no problem with the price of this subscription and the products look great but I have to avoid parabens and a few other ingredients (doctors orders due to family cancer risks) and when a company doesn’t show them on the label or online they won’t get my money. Last I checked when I was thinking of getting this sub the eyeshadows still had parabens! For the price upfront they really should be able to make a quality product with ingredients they are actually proud of

  2. I was very excited when I saw this review. Sadly, I did not received this as my January shipment.

    I received 3 eye masks duo for January.
    This sub used to be the same item for all the subscribers (although I think some times there was a color variariation).

    Im going to keep a close eyes to this sub reviews to see if more different items are shipped through the remaining of the sub period.

    • I think that’s the February shipment… I just got that today, I would email them and let them know if you don’t get the face cream in the next few days.

      • Thanks for the info!

    • I ran into the same problem. I only received the shipment with the 3 eye masks and did not receive this cream at all. It is now March. I had to email customer service again to inquire about another late/missed shipment.

      While I generally like the products from this subscription, the shipments have been unreliable starting January of this year. I’ve paid a good amount of money for this subscription and I expect to receive my packages each month.

  3. Love that they sent such a nice, full size skincare item! I’ve been wanting to try this!

  4. This subscription makes me crazy. I had it last year and for the most part we got not very nice items. I would consider signing up next go round if we could be assured that the products would be as decent as the ones I’ve seen this year.

  5. I do not want to sound snobby, but who would in their right mind pay $225 cream. Well, I guess a lot of women would do. What is so special about this cream that it cost that much? Special ingredient? Special effect on skin? I need something to justify this price.

    • Whatever beneficial ingredients this cream might have, they all start detotiorating after opening. Not to mention you have to stick your fingers into the jar… Who wants to bother with cotton swabs, anyway?

      • Exactly. When I see the open jar know right away its bells and whistles and their researchers didn’t even care enough to put it in an airtight container.

      • I use little plastic spatulas in my precious creams that are in a jar to keep out the bacteria from my fingers.

    • And if they’re ready to part with the jar for $29, you know that they know too that it’s not worth $225.
