Le Métier de Beauté Peau Vierge Dark Spot Corrector Results and Review

Ever wish you could go back in time and undo some of the damage you’ve inflicted on your skin? I know I do! Well Le Métier de Beauté’s new Peau Vierge Dark Spot Corrector has a potent blend of ingredients that have never been used before in a dark spot corrector and they are delivered using their patented SYNTOC ACTIF technology.


I promised you when I first shared the information with you on this product in my Le Métier de Beauté Peau Vierge Dark Spot Corrector 28 Day Challenge post that I would come back and show you my results with the product. First I will refresh you on the product:

It starts with the ingredients, specifically a powerful skin lightening and protection complex that combines 1% Retinol and 1% Hexyleresorcinol and their Syntoc Actif delivery system.

  • Benefits of 1% Retinol – decreases acne scars and photo-aging from sun, diminishes the appearance of discoloration and reveals lighter pigmentation with each treatment.
  • Benefits of 1% Hexylresorcinol – said to be four times more effective than Hydroquinone, protects skin’s collagen by reducing glycation, effectively treats hyper-pigmented skin.
  • Benefits of Syntoc Actif – delivers ingredients into the skin quicker and more effectively, deeper penetration and better performance without irritation, anti-inflammatory properties, no harsh side effects

In just 28 days uneven skin tones will reap the benefits of this powerful trio: 1% Retinol + 1% Hexylresorcinol + Syntoc Actif.

  • Even toned, smoother looking skin.
  • Dramatically reduces dark spots, post-acne marks, sun damage and skin imperfections.
  • Effectively brightens and illuminates complexion.
  • Diminishes hyperpigmentation and scarring.

I have actually been using the Le Métier de Beauté Dark Spot Corrector for a lot longer than 28 days because I have only been using 2-3 times per week rather than daily. I am very sensitive to retinol products. They cause redness and peeling on my dry, sensitive skin. Thankfully the LMdB Dark Spot Corrector is gentle enough that I can use it but I have restricted it to only using every few days to keep my skin from becoming too flaky and dry. This obviously slowed down my results but I have seen some fading and “breaking up” of some of my dark spots.


Available now at Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, select Saks, and Nordstrom stores. $125 US.

Full On Bombshell Smokey Makeup Look for a Rare Night Out

Last weekend we went out for my BFF’s birthday so I took the opportunity to go all out with my makeup. It’s not often my husband and I get to go out anymore and even though it was just out to dinner and back to her place for drinks after I decided to treat it as a full on night on the town! Now I must apologize in advance for the insatiable lemmings I am going to create for the illustrious, and no longer available, Le Metier de Beaute Smoldering Embarkment Kaleidoscope Eye Kit. I really, REALLY wish they would bring this back. It is my all time favourite smokey eye look and I can’t bear the thought of not having a back up. I also want to be able to carry one in my kit to use on clients. Please Le Metier de Beaute….PLEASE…. *bats lashes*.

I also picked up a new Maybelline Color Whisper Lipstick at the Maybelline Fall/Winter 2013 Trends Event last week when I had my lip print read by the Lipstick Psychic that was there. So fun!  The shade is Lust for Blush and it is a phenomenal pale nude mauve pink. It may just be my new favourite lip pairing for an intense smokey eye. I can’t wait to share more from this event with you. There are so many incredible new products from Maybelline. I am especially looking forward to sharing the Fall/Winter 2013 look trends that the beautiful Grace Lee demonstrated for us when it gets closer to fall.

Lastly, for anyone who chooses to separately donate $100 or more on the tribute fund page that has been set up at ALSA.org, Le Métier de Beauté will send a thank you package of beauty goodies.

What is ALS? The Facts: • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that attacks nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord resulting in muscle weakness and atrophy. • Upon diagnosis, the life expectancy of an ALS patient ranges from 2 to 5 years. • Only 10% will survive more than 10 years • For the vast majority, their mind and thoughts are not impaired and remain sharp despite the progressive degenerating condition of the body. • ALS can strike anyone. There is currently no cure. What We Can Do. “Lids for Lou Gehrig’s” Mission: Give a voice. The goal behind Le Métier de Beauté ‘s “Lids for Lou Gehrig’s” campaign is to open more eyes to this devastating disease. Knowledge is power and can bring us one step closer to finding a cure. Your participation, voice and donations can directly impact thousands of people and their family members whose lives have been affected by ALS.
