When Sue Nelson contacted me to ask if I'd like to try a 7 day trial of L'BRI skincare, I was excited! An aloe vera based skincare line free of parabens, waxes, lanolins, SLS, alcohols, mineral oils, artificial colors, and synthetic fragrances? You can see why I jumped at the chance to try it out.
L'BRI Pure n' Natural was created by Linda and Brian Kaminski (L'BRI is a combination of their names; think of them as the Brangelina of direct sales skincare and cosmetics!) and, true to it's name, the line utilizes natural, pharmaceutical-grade ingredients. L'BRI products are never tested on animals and they have a 30 day money back guarantee if you don't love the way your skin looks.
So what was my experience? You can't see certain long-term results, such as anti-aging benefits, in 7 days, but the immediate benefits of softer, more clear skin were definitely apparent for me. My skin felt clean and perfectly content.
My favorite products were the gentle, non-foaming Deep Pore Cleanser (it removed eyeshadow like a champ!) and the Facial Mask, which left my skin feeling smooth and balanced. The Deep Pore Cleanser left my skin feeling ultra clean without that dry, tight feeling that leaves you running for moisturizer!
The Smooth n' Firm Eye Repair Gel definitely shrunk the puffy bags under my eyes after a night of sleeping face down in my pillow! It also absorbed into the skin under my eyes quickly which made my concealer lay down even more smoothly. It has a thin, gel-like consistency that reminds me of the soothing Aloe Vera gel you smooth on for relief when you get sun burned.
The only product that didn't perform extremely well for me was the Rejuvenating Facial Peel, which uses fruit enzymes to slough off dead skin. Even though I followed the directions to the letter, I didn't see or feel any dead skin being whisked away. In the spirit of full disclosure, I find enzyme exfoliators in general don't do much for my skin. I need a physical exfoliator. Luckily, L'BRI offers one called Exfoliating Face & Body Scrub that is excellent! It worked wonders to clear the dead skin from my face and left my skin feeling very happy afterwards.
L'BRI products are not available in stores so orders have to be placed through a representative's website. L'BRI ships within the USA only, so my favorite Internationalistas and Canadian Neighbor Gals (CNG's, if you will) won't be able to order from this line at this time.
Glambunctious readers in the US can place an order, or try the same skincare samples I tested in this post for $6.75 shipping & handling, by visiting Sue Nelson's L'BRI site here.
