An entrepreneur and I happened to be chatting about the company for which she is a representative. A believer in her product, she offered to send me complementary items to try. I informed her that I would do her one better. I announced that upon receiving the products, I would write a review, for you, ethnic beauties. Therefore, I must first mention the company that makes these items.
An international brand, L'Bel is the brain child of Belcorp - a corporation with more than 40 years of beauty industry experience. L'Bel has developed a broad spectrum of skin care solutions that are said to enhance its patrons' natural beauty. The company also has a complete line of makeup, fragrance, and body, as well as hair care products. Upon reading that skin is L'Bel's passion, I looked forward to trying the following products for oily skin from their 'Essential' line...
Purifying foam cleanser - With its spring green color and light fragrance that is reminiscent of cucumber and white flowers, it does what it promises. This cleanser gently removes oil and makeup. It also claims to remove dead skin cells...and strangely enough, within a few days I noticed that my skin looked fresher and brighter. Love it! This will definitely be a purchase of mine.
Mattifying lotion toner - This is different from any toner that I have used. It needs to be shaken up and when used, it does not cause the skin to feel irritated as some astringent toners do. Said to tighten pores and refine the skin, it deftly removes any final traces of oil that may be left on the skin after cleansing. This toner did not leave my skin feeling tight either. After using it, each time I simply feel natural. Lovely.
For all skin types, the moisturizing eye and face makeup remover lotion is a dream. Initially, I did not think I would like this product, but I was wrong. It smoothly and easily removes not only stubborn eye makeup, but lipstick and other makeup as well. I like that I can use a little on a cotton ball and quickly get the job done.
I noticed that L'Bel offers a 30+ line of products to combat the first signs of aging that begins around a woman’s thirtieth year. Their 40+ line is for those who are fabulous and forty-something. No need to lose elasticity or firmness. For those who are 50 and beyond, there are luxury products to combat any number of signs of aging. What I also like about this company is that they are aware that every woman's skin is unique, and as such, has specific needs. Today, ethnic beauties we have three hits. In using my rating system, I will give all three products four and a half out of five cocktail rings.
To find yourself in a L'Bel fragrance, eye shadow or to kick up the glam factor in any number of other ways including products for men, check this company out online - and don't forget to meet me in The Ethnic Beauty Forum.
