L'Bel Cosmetics and Skin Care Giveaway

My friend Katie MacAvoy is a sales representative for an international skin care and cosmetic company called L'Bel.

So my first thought was, 'Awesome!  I love French stuff!  You know - like french fries and french toast.  Oh, and I even speak a little French like "chocolate fondue", "chocolate elcairs" and "that movie that Johnny Depp was in".'

I know, I know.  You don't have to say it.  You're impressed.

So I decided to do a little research on this international company and I learned that it originated in Peru.  And they don't even speak French there!  They speak Peruvian.

Okay, I'M KIDDING.  Please call off the dogs!  They speak Brazilian-Portugeuse.

(And yes, I had to look it up.)

Are you as confused as I am?

And because this blog cares about REAL JOURNALISM (Oh my gosh, I can't even type that with a straight face), I asked Katie about it.  She said that although the cosmetics were developed by the parent company in Peru, the fragrances and skin care were developed in France.  And that's what sets L'Bel apart from other direct market skin care companies.  It's like Lancome delivered to your front door.

Here's a review of four L'Bel products that Katie let me try.

Regression Jour Day Cream.  It said on the label that this product was developed for women over the age of 30,  SO WHY DID SHE GIVE IT TO ME?  Pfft.  Because I've been 29 for YEARS NOW.

This product was great to use after cleansing and toning to add extra moisture and scare off early wrinkles.  I immediately noticed improvement in my skin.  The SPF 15 also protected me from those nasty UVA and UVB rays.  And let's face it - when you act as immature as I do, you need to look as young as possible.

Delicious Lip Gloss Plump in Vin.  Katie said that this was her favorite product, but, uh, have you seen my lips?  Okay, stupid question.  OF COURSE YOU'VE SEEN THEM.  They take up one-third of my face.

Let's jump in Doc Brown's DeLorean and take a little trip to 1987, shall we?  Middle School.  Big Hair.  Debbie Gibson.  Ocean Pacific.  And one turd-bucket who decided to stand up in front of the class and shout, "Hey, everybody!  How do you babysit Amanda?.... Lick her lips and stick her to the wall!"

Do you hear that whistling sound?  It's the sound of my 12-year-old self-esteem plummeting faster and faster with each chuckle.

Suddenly making fun of my lips became hilarious - better than anything on the Cosby Show, Roseanne, and Family Ties.

But don't worry.  I think most of the emotional scars have healed.  Or at least my shrink says so.

Anyway, before we go back to Werdyab Blog, let's make a quick stop by 2010, shall we?  There I am in Wallgreen's.  Do you see me?  I'm running late for a party and I desperately need some new lip gloss, but I accidentally bought the lip plumping kind.  I figured this out when my lips felt like they were on FIRE.  I'm talking second degree burns here.

So I was a little hesitant about trying this product, but it was amazing!  There wasn't any weird tingle, and my lips looked soft, moisturized and extra plump.  Lip gloss that makes you feel sexy?  Totally worth your $12 investment.

Couleur Lux Infinite Cils XP Mascara in Black.  According to a scientific study that I completely made up for the purposes of this blog, I only wear mascara and lip gloss 95.6% of the time I say that "I'm wearing makeup".   So I'm always on the hunt for a good mascara.  This one lengthened my lashes and accented my eyes without a bunch of gloopy mess.  And, it added a natural-looking curl.  Nice.

Eau du Soleil.  I'm not really a perfume person because most of them give me a headache, but this one didn't.  It smelled fresh and warm and vibrant.  I put this on and suddenly I smelled like MAKING THINGS HAPPEN, Y'ALL.  I'll wear this perfume when my closets need organizing because this is the type of "liquid encouragement" that nobody judges you for pulling out of the cabinet at 9 o'clock in the morning.

Katie is giving one lucky Werdyab reader a basket full of awesome L'Bel goodies this month!

To enter, just place an online order of $30 or more here.  To make sure that she knows you're from Werdyab, please enter 472 as the "Party ID" during checkout.  Why?  Because this blog IS a party!  Duh.  Katie will randomly select a winner on April 30th.  Good luck!

And if you're in the Atlanta area, you can also contact Katie about hosting a Sip 'n' Shop.  Hostesses get tons of free stuff and there's wine.  Need I say more?
