The Beauty Vault VIP Subscription from Le Metier De Beaute is a luxury beauty subscription box that cost me $348 upfront for the entire year.

This box came with a card detailing the items included, instructions for use, and ingredients.

Now, on to the item!


Le Metier de Beaute Instant Lifting and Firming Face Serum – Retail Value $350 (!!!!)

This is officially the priciest skincare item I own! The formula is designed to help lift and tighten the skin while diminishing the appearance of imperfections. To use it, you gently pat it on to your skin – don’t rub it in, then wait a few moments for it to dry.

The info card says, “You can feel the heat activated serum begin to tighten and firm the skin upon application.” I can’t say I could feel serum tightening and firming my skin, but I liked the fresh cucumber scent, and the formula felt gentle on my skin. Hopefully, I’ll see some major results by the time this bottle is empty!

Verdict: This box has a value of $350 – that’s $2 more than the cost of the entire year subscription! I am thrilled!

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No. This subscription is only available for purchase once a year. The next time it opens for purchase is May 2018 through July 2018.

Coupon – no coupons available for this subscription.

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

  1. Oh wow! I’m so jealous! I love luxe skin care but I don’t wear much makeup so this sub probably wouldn’t work for me. I’m excited for y’all who got it though. I hope y’all see amazing results!

  2. Does anyone have an ingredients list? I’m not a subscriber and I can’t find one online. As a skincare enthusiast, I’m super curious.

    • I’ll check when I get home. I know that they are cruelty-free (otherwise I wouldn’t subscribe).

    • Water, Glycerin, butylene glycol, polysorbate 20, pullulan, simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, carrageenan, sorghum bicolor stalk juice, camellia sinensis seed oil, sodium polystyrene sulfonate, panthenol, hydroxyethylcellulose, proline, camellia oleifera leaf extract, vitis vinifera (grape) seed oil, sorbitan laurate, tocopheryl acetate, tocopheryl phosphate, tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate, hydroxyproline, acetyl dipeptide-1 cetyl ester, sodium hyaluronate, glycine, acrylates copolymer, carbomer, disodium edta, sodium hydroxide, hexylene glycol, sodium benzoate, potassium sorbate, phenoxyethanol, fragrance.

  3. I had this subscription last year and it was a waste of money! I’m pretty impressed by this seasons offerings. If they keep this up I may resub

  4. My experience was the same as everyone, which is making me laugh! I nearly fell down when I saw the SIZE of this pricey serum! I was so thrilled! I had been going back and forth about renewing, but mostly thinking there’s no way that I can justify the price with my budget, but after THIS, Oh.My.Gosh! They reeled me in, hook, line, and sinker!

    • Wow indeed! This is the first serum I’ve ever used that takes only one pump to cover my entire face. I wish it wasn’t so expensive (or that I won the lotto)…I could get used to this stuff.

      • I’m a skincare FREAK! My Grandma Bootsy had me putting on cold cream with her before I was double digits. Thank you, Grandma Bootsy. I am so jealous. I mainly sub to skincare boxes. This is un-be-lieve-able. Congrats on hitting the jackpot!

  5. I was shocked when I opened my box. I will definitely be renewing. I just purchased 2 more shades of the Hydra Plump lipstick which I discovered thru this subscription.

    • That lipstick is the BOMB! I sent one of mine to Australia for my sister; she LOVES it (and she isn’t a makeup person at all). I want all of the colors now.

      • Neiman Marcus is where I purchased as they had several shades not available on LMDB website. What a nice thinking of you gift for your sister.

        • I came back to this post to add the ingredient list for the serum…and saw your comment. I can’t help it; I’m going to the Neiman Marcus site right now (even though I don’t need any more lipsticks at the moment).

  6. I am in LOVE! This year has been amazing and this serum is perfect! I will definitely sub again next year!

  7. At that price, I’d be terrified to use it, for fear of getting hooked!

    • I promise you…if you use the best skin care that you can afford at any time, the benefits accumulate. I use to use La Mer, but I can’t afford that anymore. Still, a lifetime of care does add up (and you don’t need to use products that are CRAZY expensive all of the time).

    • I agree with Rosemary- use it and enjoy it!

      • I have begun a subscription to a fantastic company called “Saranghae”. I pay about $99 every 45 days (or I can easily skip a shipment) and I love the products (cleanser, serum, eye cream, moisturizer, and some masks).

        I am 50, and I have a really oily nose (with a terrible sebaceous filament problem). For some reason, since I’ve been using this brand, I am able to extract the nasty gunk out of the pores on my nose much, much more easily.

        The reason I am off on a tangent is because high quality skincare doesn’t have to cost $350 for a bottle of serum…and I would love MSA to review more skincare subs.

  8. OK…I listed one for a swap. It is amazing.

    • I am still waiting to get on the swap site. Really want this item!

      • Hi Sam! I listed one of mine as swap-bait for one of my unicorns!!! Let’s see if someone can part me from it.

  9. I am so jelly when I see this sub reviewed but wish they had another payment option instead of that much up front! Looks like a great quality over quantity sub.

    • If you pay with paypal, you can split it the payments over six months with no interest. That’s what I do and just pay $58/month for six months. Much easier pill to swallow than $348 up front.

      • Thanks for letting us know! That’s fantastic.

  10. This serum is amazing. Thank you LMDB. You have me for another year.

  11. OMG!!! I can hardly wait for this sub to open in May!!!!!!

    • Oh I know… I think I’m finally going to bite this year. 🙂
