L'Bri Skincare Review and Giveaway * CONTEST CLOSED

**CONTEST CLOSED
Let's be honest here. Most days, I'm so busy that I barely remember to brush my teeth, let alone wash, tone, and moisturize my skin. So I was thrilled when I was asked to review L'Bri's Skin Care Essentials Trio.

L'Bri's skincare products are totally natural and have aloe as the first ingredient. I have never had the opportunity to try an aloe based skincare product so I was not totally sure what to expect. The Skin Care Essentials Trio is a three step skin care regimen designed to improve the health and beauty of your skin. Unlike regular soap based face washes which can leave residue on your skin, L'Bri products are designed to cleanse your skin without leaving a film behind. Here's what's included in the trio:



Step 1: Cleanser: Unlike facial cleansers I've used in the past, this lotion cleanser does not produce suds. You simply apply the lotion to your dry face, working into the skin with your fingers. You then rinse your face with water.

Step 2: Freshener:  Squirt freshener on a cotton ball or pad and apply to skin. This step moisturizes and restores your skin's pH balance to a proper level. A proper pH level ensures that your skin is protected from bacteria and irritation.

Step 3: Moisturizer: Apply a dime sized amount of moisturizer to your face and neck. Rub into your skin in an upward and outward motion. Dampen your fingers and continue working the moisturizer into the skin.

Here's what I discovered after using the product for ten days.

PROS:
  • My skin felt incredibly soft and moisturized. This is saying something since my skin is horrendously dry, especially after washing my face. I didn't even need to apply additional moisturizer in the morning like I usually do.
  • My skin looked healthy.
  • It has a pleasant fragrance.
  • It is pure and natural and did not irritate my skin at all.
  • It is safe to use around the eye area.
CONS:
  • It is a bit more expensive than my regular "Wal-Mart special" face wash, BUT you definitely get what you pay for. This is a much higher quality product and is much better for my skin.
  • I did have a few blemishes when I first started using the product, but they said this is to be expected since the cleanser is removing embedded impurities from the skin. This only lasts a couple days and then the complexion clears. I do have to admit that even in spite of a few small blemishes my skin looked much clearer and had a  healthy glow to it. 
I was very pleased with the results. I went from forgetting to washing my face to looking forward to washing my face at the end of the day. I really liked the way it made my skin look and feel. L'Bri offers a wide variety of skin care products including a pure and natural  make-up line.

Debbie, a consultant for L'Bri, has generously offered one of my readers the opportunity to try a ten day supply of Skin Care Essentials for free! This is the perfect size to stow in a travel bag or purse! I know you'll enjoy using it.

    1. A product that I would love to try is the Facial Masque .. I'm lucky enough not to have many wrinkles, and the ones I have aren't very deep, but my skin IS showing the effects of time and gravity!
