A French Woman's Secret (Part 2)



Part of the beauty and allure of French women (besides their scent, previous post here) is their enviable complexion. They firmly believe in taking good care of one’s skin and aging well. From their early teens, they religiously care for their skin at home and practice good skin care habitswashing their face every night, using a gentle cleanser, toner and moisturizer morning and evening, as well as giving their skin weekly masks. Many women believe that once you turn forty, you must start intensive skin care treatments, but this is actually the opposite of what is true. Beautiful skin begins in the formative years.

If you’ll also notice, the French use far less makeup. They believe in celebrating one’s features and natural complexion. Makeup compliments, never covers.




For years, I have been searching for a skincare line that not only smells lovely, but feels great something that would make the difference for my skin. After trying several brands, from simple skin care, to organics, to high-profiled boutique and department store lines, I felt there was nothing better out there. I was both surprised and thrilled after trying Votre Vu!

Votre Vu is a lovely premier skincare line, truly crafted in France. Unlike many other lines that claim to be French-based, (read their labels) each and every Votre Vu product is made with old-world craftsmanship by true French artisans. They cater to all skin types, from very dry to sensitive to mature skin. As a person with very sensitive skin, I was so incredibly thrilled with the results! Cultivated and perfected, the products are made in small batches with premium, naturally based, naturally-potent skincare ingredients; with the very same traditions that the French have celebrated for centuries. You truly feel the difference…



A Lovely Giveaway!

To top it off, I am happy to be offering one lucky winner this gorgeous Mal-ligne Wrinkle Eraser. Please leave a little comment below. The winner will be randomly selected on March 31st! Open to U.S residences only. Bonne chance!

Of Note: if you would like to learn more about this fabulous line, or to sign up for their great newsletters, feel free to send an email to Traci at: tbkuhn@wideopenwest.com.

Special thanks to Traci Kuhn for sponsoring this contest!

  14. Thanks for sharing this. I have recently lashed out a serious amount of money to try La Mer, having read so much about it. Disappointed would be the word, and possibly overhyped. I have tried many products over the years and really need to acknowledge that only French skin care is the best. This one has escaped my attention, but I will have to try it now. Thanks!

  29. well to be honest i have not seen any french women with great skin, danish, yes, english sometimes,swedish, yes. americans,yes,germans, definately. so sorry i don't get what all the fuss is about french women.
    in fact most french women seem old fashioned, boring & stuck up.
