L'Bel Paris Review - GIVEAWAY CLOSED

And the winner of the giveaway is...Rachel!! Yay! Congrats Rachel and thank you to everyone who entered.

This is a compensated review by BlogHer and L'Bel.

I recently was sent a few products from the skincare company L'Bel and I am a skincare junkie so was dying to try it out. I have always had skin issues, from a teenager to my early to mid twenties, I've had to deal with problem zits and random bumps on my face. It was one of those things that probably shouldn't bother me that much but it did, it bothered me a lot. I tried out a lot of different kinds of skincare at all different price points to take care of these issues. My skin has calmed down a bit and now my main concern is wrinkles and just general aging, although I do still have the occasional zit or two. L'Bel sent me a few anti-aging lotions, specifically this eye cream and this face lotion.

REGRESSION YEUX
Eye Contour Cream Against the First Signs of Age ff (am-pm) .52 oz.


REGRESSION JOUR
Protective Complex Against the First Signs of Age SPF 15 ff Normal to combination Skin (am) Lotion 3.8 oz.

I've only used both products for about a week, the eye cream at night and the face lotion for the day but I've noticed a difference in the softness of my skin. I've used many eye creams before and this one is really nice as it's nice and creamy and goes well onto the sensitive skin around the eye and is not irritating at all.

The other product that I absolutely adore is the Essential Moisturizing Lotion Toner. I don't typically use a toner as the ones I've used before can be kind of harsh on my skin but this one is so gentle. I think I do a pretty good job of cleaning my make up off as I use an eye makeup remover as well as my Clarisonic but after using this toner I could still see a bit of makeup left on the cotton pad and my skin just feels really clean.


Some information about the brand:
L’Bel Paris is a brand developed with the support of the prestigious Centre de Biodermatologie des Laboratoires Serobiologiques and Sederma Socete d’Etudes Dermatologiques. The latest scientific innovations are incorporated into each product, creating a beauty regimen for radiant skin that withstands the passage of time. Join us on Twitter for beauty tips and special offers @LBelParis.

You can also get more information at their Official site

Skincare and makeup is one of those things that just makes me feel so happy. I can spend hours in my bathroom playing my lotions, blushes, eyeshadows, etc... On an everyday basis I make sure to take care of my skin so that it not only looks good now but when I'm older as well. Make up wise, I'm not "just your basics" kind of girl. I do everything from change up my eye shadow color daily to wearing brightly colored eyeliner and red lipstick (maybe not necessarily at the same time. lol!) but one thing that I always add to my makeup routine for any special events is add a pair of false eyelashes! That one thing can brighten up my whole look, especially since I have small eyes but when I wear them, my eyes look a lot bigger. It's kind of funny what these little fake lashes can do but I guess that's a reason why celebs wear them on the red carpet too!

Because L'Bel is such a fantastic product I wanted to share the product with my readers so you have a chance to enter for a chance to win $500 worth of L’Bel products custom selected for the winner. The prizes will include:

I always add falsies to my makeup routine to add a little something something.

Daituf said...

I like to add a glitter liner for something special in my makeup routine.
Thanks for this!

Kait said...

For extra special moments, I really 'do' my makeup. Being a busy, full-time college student and employee I typically run out the door with a bit of mascara and eyebrow definer on.

For special events, I bring out eyeshadow, blush, tinted moisturizer-- the whole shebang! It makes me feel very feminine, and is a real treat for someone as on the go as I am.

Fabulous Fashion Finds said...

For special occasion I sure do spend more time to make sure my make is perfect, and I add false lashes to make the eyes stand out more and look bigger

Linda said...

for special occasions, I add eyeliner on my top lid instead of just my botton lid :)

kimmie said...

For special occasions I use foundation under my bare minerals powder. Otherwise, it's just over primer :)

Love the awesome giveaways, Tiffany!! :)

.reese. said...

i add false lashes! other than that, my skin needs the special treatment everyday!

Kara said...

I don't use makeup, just sunscreen, but every morning I be sure to look at myself in the mirror and remind myself that I am good enough. I am who I am and I am quirky, creative and beautiful in my own way and no one can tell me otherwise.

Rhonda Gail said...

I use concealer primer under my concealer when i want to look REALLY good!

Lynn said...

I always add false lashes or a richer lipstick or shadow than daytime. These products look amazing!!

miamichaela said...

Well, sometimes I add glittery eyeliner...or deep purple lipstick...and smokey eyes when I want to look exceptionally sultry. ;)

I have this gold Nars shadow that I add to the inner corners of my eyes for an extra pop in the same old makeup routine. :)

Annie said...

I'm a pretty simple girl and don't wear much makeup. To add a little oompf when I do wear makeup, I like wearing sparkly eye shadow that make my eyes smokey looking and glittery eye liner.

Melodie54 said...

When I do wear makeup, I like to add just a bit of shimmer eyeshadow, since eyes are the first thing most people notice.

I always eyeliner. Doesn't sound like much, but a touch of eyeliner to me really vamps it up. I don't feel like it looks appropriate for a day at the office!

Meaghan said...

Amazing giveaway! For extra special moments I usually spend more time on my makeup, breakout the eyelash curler and lipstick which i rarely wear.

Erin said...

I usually add eyeliner. I hardly ever wear it. but when it's a great night for fun, I use eyeliner. and it turns out fabulous!

Elizabeth said...

I have finally just really gotten into makeup. Meaning I wear it more than once a month. But normally I don't do everything everyday. Most days the only thing I do to my eyes is mascara. On extra special days I take the time to add eye shadow and eyeliner. Basically, I am boring and lame.

chatteringliz@aol.com

iwantthat2 said...

I use fun colored eyeshadows for special moments!

jellen814 at live dot com

roysie said...

What a generous giveaway. I should tried false lashes next time I have a special event to go to. I rarely change up my routine!

Ella said...

I'm a product junkie too!! On a daily basis, I usually play with my eyes and keep my lips pretty neutral because eye make-up typically doesn't need to be reapplied and I live a hectic life. To do up it up, though, I usually do a hot lip color and play down my eyes. Because I have warm skin, deep or bright colors really pop and are tons of fun to play with when I'm doing something special. I'm a fan of MAC and Bobbi Brown lip colors especially.

PowerSuitMom said...

On special occasions, I abandon the neutral shadows and MAC Zoom Lash used on my ordinary days and put on false lashes and more dramatic eye shadows. Nothing like unforgettable eyes for a special moment!

Brandy said...

The thing I do to add to my look is either false lashes, or a stellar lipstick! Both of those are too much for me on a regular basis, but I LOVE to add them for special events. =)

Carissa said...

Everyday, I usually wear foundation (mixed with moisturizer), concealer, light eyeliner, mascara, lipstick, and--if I have time--a neutral-colored eye shadow. For special events, I break out the dark/bright eyeshadow and I use more eyeliner. I've never thought about doing fake lashes, but I'm tempted now...

Chelsea P said...

I do white in the corner of my eyes and under my bottom lashes to make my eyes pop.

Cents in the City said...

Most special moments for me are at night, so I will often go with darker, more dramatic makeup and lots of eyeliner.

Jaime said...

Wow- amazing!

I usually do a smokey eye for something special and line my upper and lower lid. It really makes my eyes pop!

Nina (Femme Rationale) said...

i've been wanting to change up my skincare routine and i was actually going to try dhc based on your previous review. maybe i'll win this giveaway and i can try l'bel instead. ;) (this is going up on my side bar!)

Lisa said...

To take my routine up a notch - I add fake lashes. They make me feel glam!

clammyinsf said...

for special occassions, i add Thi Lush Lashes. they make me feel glamorous :)

♥ Manuella ♥ said...

For extra special moment, i add false eye lashes and do a smokey eye.

EthidiumBromide said...

90% of the time I don't even bother to wear makeup to work... which is kind of a shame, because I could open a Sephora out of my bathroom closet! With the hours I work and the casual scientist lifestyle, I'd rather opt for an extra 20 minutes of sleep! But to take it up a notch from what I might wear if I wore makeup to work, I'll actually take the extra minute to curl my eyelashes!

Chelsa Bea said...

When I want to add something really special to my makeup routine, I wear false eyelashes and liquid eyeline. Always does the trick and leaves my eyes looking fabulous!

Thanks for the wonderful giveaway!

Leah said...

I love extra thick and sometimes winged eyeliner. For special occassions I wear liquid eyeliner instead of the pencil kind. I would love to wear more pink/red lipsticks but I'm not brave enough (yet!).

Lalaland said...

For special makeup moments, i tend to go with gold undertones - a gold eyeshadow base and a tough at the inner corner of the eye...and then s smokey eye.

And I'll actually use primer on both the fact and eyes.

Abbie said...

The question that I should answer is "what DON'T I add"! I am normally a mascara and lip gloss kind of girl. So, for special occasions, I actually "put my face on". :) I got a how-to before my wedding, and now I actually feel comfortable executing it... especially love the eyeshadow, which only makes an appearance for special moments.

A-C said...

I add just about everything when I go out. I almost never wear makeup to begin with, but when I go out, I definitely wear some.

i don't do much different. i just add a little more mascara, little more eyeliner, and a little dark eyeshadow around the outer corner of my eye.

Mark Moore (Moderator) said...

When I'm getting ready for something special, I add a bit of Get Your Glow Back to highlight my eyes.

I'd love to win!! Extra smokey eye shadow does the trick at night.

Jesse said...

I like to actually use my gel eyeliners for special occasions. :-)

Mary said...

When I want to look reeaallly good, I make sure my eyes are perfect. I make them more smoky, more dramatic, more perfectly lined. And, if it's a very special occasion, I will put concealer underneath my eyes. That's it!

cynthia said...

for that little something more i might add some eyeshadow or eye liner or maybe even some lipstick. i'm a pretty basic girl and so that's my "over the top." it's not much but it is for me.

Youa said...

a girl can never have too much product. :)

Birdie! said...

For extra special moments - I like to use Mary Kay's satin lip mask make sure my kisser is THE softest.

sharonlei said...

I love to add falsies.. but not a whole strip. I prefer the individual kine because they look more natural, but defnitely make asian eyes stand out a little more. :) And sometimes for fun, I'll pencil in a little beauty mark to feel a bit more "glamourous".. ha ha. :) It's sooo much fun being a woman!

chibi said...

For special occasions, I allow myself an extra thirty minutes to my usual time to do my makeup.
So start to finish with a shower, hair and makeup, it's about two hours.

anotherfishinthesea said...

I don't usually wear very much makeup so on special occasions I do a more dramatic eye and add lipstick! Oh my!

bethfish@gmail.com

hafuusa said...

I've recently gone the minimal makeup look, so for me, adding something special in my makeup routine means doing a full face of makeup; eyes, cheeks, lips, the whole shebang. It's nice to go from minimal to full glam :)

Amanda said...

Eyeliner - it's not an everyday thing for me. Dressed up eyes make it extra special.

rachel said...

my skin needs this stat !

kimmerbean said...

I just add some shiny lip gloss for special occasions/moments.

kerrianne.org said...

A dramatic eye (complete with liner, mascara and bold eyeshadow) is my go-to for sprucing up my make-up routine.

God Made Me fuNky said...

Thats such a generous holiday spirit.
On a daily basis my make is all about blush, mascara and lip gloss.
On evenings, I add a tinted moisturizer and a bronzer and eye like to use Kohl on eyes....it really opens them up.

DeLane said...

For special occasions such as a date night with hubby (few & far between!)...I like to add darker eye shadow & red lipstick.

bc0105@aol.com

Rhonda said...

Great giveaway! I add a smokey eye, longer lashes and darker lipstick.

Kim said...

For me, I add eye shadow and it really adds a lot.

Mindy said...

If I want to add a little extra something to my make-up, I'll use a touch of lip-liner before putting on my Blistex. I know, I'm a real risk-taker! But I'm quite content with eyeliner, shadow, and mascara.

Tammy said...

Like you, at home, make up free but with well cared for skin. Although my job requires me to wear make up every day I work, I would personally prefer not, too. But a day doesn’t pass that I don’t wear skin care!

Tammy Elrod

Chessa! said...

For special events I get a facial.. I love the way that my skin feels and when I get ready and wear my makeup on a facial day, my skin just glows and feels marvelous.

and for all special occassions I go straight to the bold eyeshadows. I usually only wear a little bit of mascara to play up my eyes but when I go out, I bust out the smokey eye and I instantly feel glam.

jen byun tadema said...

besides adding lashes for an easy way to look way more polished than the effort put in, for extra special occasions, i cover my face with a hot towel for a few minutes to soften my skin and put lotion on right afterwards...it gives it the "dewy" look! :)

DiaryofWhy said...

I love making things more dramatic by adding some dark eye makeup.

Annette D said...

I add a little extra eyeliner and some lipstick.

Eyeliner! I don't take the time to apply it most days - but for those special occasions, I definitely put on some charcoal grey or black eyeliner.

For special moments, I go all the way with my make up. I usually do as little as possible which means powder/light powder foundation, brows, blush, grey liner, and definitely brows! Sometimes concealer. So if something special is going on, I use eyeshadow! Yes, eyeshadow and mascara as well as liquid foundation + powder. Finally, lipgloss or lipstick or both. Oh - falsies, too, if I feel like it. Eyes always take forever... especially with mascara!

For those extra special moments, I change up my normal make-up routine by putting on more make-up and by using different, brighter colors and wearing lipstick. This is a change from my normal make-up routing which is lighter on the make-up, more neutral colors and no lipstick.

Red lipstick - a deep blue-red. During the week I only wear a tinted lipgloss but for nights-out, it's all glamour!

I just add a little more eye liner and mascara, and a little lip gloss. I'm a simple kind of girl!
Thanks!

for special occasions, I use 3 shades of eye shadow, go a little heavier on the eye liner, and use 2 shades of lipstick

I will sometimes use a hair masque the night before, to make sure that my hair is shiny and beautiful.

I always add falsies to give my little Asian eyes a little flair.

I use navy eyeliner on upper lash line for whiter eyes, and a gold pencil on the inner corners. Really makes them pop.

For the special moments - false eyelashes are a definite!

A girl can never have too much make-up!

AM said...

As a working mom with 2 kids, if i get to put on a moisturizer and/or sunscreen - I am lucky!!

So for special events, I do it all- foundation, powder, mascara, eyeshadow, lipstick....the whole shebang!

SLAgirl said...

I would have to say self tanner and smokey eyes are always an added bonus for a night out!

dancinginchiffon said...

I always have on makeup, but usually just eyeliner and mascara. But on special occasions I kick the eye makeup up a notch and do a bold smokey eye and I wear benetint lip stain- you can wear it on your lips and a little on your cheeks as blush. And it doesn't come off all night!

Chrystal said...

Well extra special to me means I get to have someone else do the make up for me.. pampering is a must every now and then!!

Red lipstick! And maybe a little glitter eyeliner! Fun!

I use the electronic brush that you use before applying makeup (I don't use it everyday...too abrasive for me). It makes my face extra smooth. Love it.

Sorry I have been away...your blog is still rockin!!!
My special makeup trick is I blow dry my eyelashes on a cold setting to dry them up (curling) instead of using a curling thingy as it sometimes pulls out your lashes...my little trick LOL
Happy New Year

ZARA said...

For special occasions I use bronzer and a highlighter as well as two shades of eyeliner- a darker shade around the outside of my eye & a gorgeous green or blue inside the rim. I also take the time to apply several coats of mascara and then curl my lashes!

Jules said...

I'll add some eyeliner and actually use lipstick for special occasions! Otherwise it's just some concealer and powder for me (oh and mascara!)

Chelsea said...

I use a gel liner, and a pop of color on my lips.

What a great giveaway!

I love doing a smokey eye when I'm feeling extra special, but I do need some more practice on it! ;)

Thank you for hosting this giveaway!
For those extra special occasions, I use MAC prep&prime face preparation because it helps keeps makeup in place and intact for those picture moments. Used it for my wedding day!

For special events, or if you're going to be in a lot of pictures make sure you put your face powder on your neck, ears, decollete and if your arms are exposed them too (just a light dusting)! The reason being that face powder has particles that reflect light, and if you don't dust these other areas you can look washed out, or like your face is too white/and or powdery! I learned this from my close friend, who is a makeup artist for Bobbi Brown!
