L'bri Pure & Natural Sponsor Spotlight Review

I have a really wonderful company that I want to tell you about today called L'Bri Pure & Natural. I have never used their products so I was really looking forward to trying them out and seeing if they really could make a difference in my anti-aging regime that seems to have stalled.

So, here is what I got to review:
1. Deep Pore Cleanser (use am & pm)
2. Exfoliating Face & Body Scrub (use twice a week)
3. Rejuvenating Facial Peel (use twice a week)
4. Facial Masque (use twice a week)
5. Gentle Freshner (use twice daily after cleanser)
6. Smooth & Firm Eye Repair Gel (use am & pm)
7. Gentle Moisture Lotion for normal or dry skin (use am & pm)
8. Aloe Vera Barbadensis Jelly (for use on oily skin)
9. Small little travel size trio
10. Lots of instructions! and a great black case to carry them all in!

I was sent all kinds of instructions I guess because it was alot of products and I was a little overwhelmed with all of them and thought to myself, wow, this is gonna be a long review! So, because I do have so many I can't possibly ramble on like I normally do, so I have to make this quick and get you as much info as I can. With the above set came instructions on what goes first. I listed them in that order so you don't get lost.
Now as for the Aloe Vera Jelly I did not use that because my skin is really dry, not oily, so I sure did not want to make it drier. I forgot until now that I should have given it to someone who could have used it then tell me how it worked. Well, I have been so super busy just did not enter my thoughts, so sorry about that one. But, I am thinking that is pretty self explanatory so if you have oily skin I would read up about it and see if it might be a good fit for you.
I am going to have to confess that maybe someone mixed a few bottles up because when I went to use the cleanser it was for normal to oily skin and L'bri's brochure and website suggested if you have dry skin you need the Gentle Cleansing Lotion for normal to dry skin. But, really, it is okay because I have tons of cleansers and when I find someone with oily skin, I will give them the products that are labeled for oily skin and if I have time later on, I will give you an updated review on how they did.
The Gentle Freshener was the right product for dry skin and it loved it! It soaked in so fast you would not have even known I had sprayed myself with something. I have used fresheners or toners that made my face look shiny or oily.
So thumbs up on the Gentle Freshener! The reason it is so good for dry skin is that it is alcohol free and it helps protect the skin from bacteria by restoring the skins normal pH balance. I am loving that product to the max!

And another good thing: it is safe to use around the eyes! I hate it when I spray something and it burns my eyes! I also love that one of the ingredients is Chamomile.
Do you know what is one of the best things about some of L'Bri's products? For instance, this Gentle Moisture Lotion comes in a 4oz. bottle and that is enough to last 3 months and only costs $22.00! I think that is awesome, don't you? It is also a lightweight lotion that my skin drinks up like it is thirsty and there is a drought going on! I love that it is that lightweight because the heavier creams tend to make my makeup roll when I try to put it on top of my foundation. I can't tell you how many times I have had to start over and it gets old after awhile!
My other favorite is the Facial Masque, but then, I am a sugar scrub freak and a masque freak so I really believe in them and I really think they work because people tell me all the time I don't look my age. The next best thing you will like about this is that this size lasts for 5 months and is only $26.50! So, isn't it beginning to look like some skincare companies are charging way too much for their products? I wonder about that alot!
This masque makes my skin feel firmer and smoother after each use. L'Bri says that this is their answer to "non-surgical face lift" and so far I agree. I am not trying to look 25 or even 30 but I don't want to look awful either. You can age gracefully and still look healthy. See that word I used, healthy? That is a good thing, not a bad thing!
The Rejuvenating Facial Peel is also another great product that I believe in. After you take the masque off you will use this twice a week to further help your fine lines and give you a healthy complexion.
It is made with natural fruit enzymes of green papaya and calming pineapple along with stabilized aloe vera gel work to dissolve dead skin cells.

You will start to see results immediately when friends and family start asking you if you are getting more rest these days or have you done something different? You only leave this on for about 30 seconds then gently massage your face while this exfoliates all the dead skin right off your face! Then just rinse it right off. My camera decided to be aggravating about this time so I could not get a picture for you of the eye cream and looks like L'Bri is careful with their images so I could not copy an image there either of the Smooth & Firm Eye Repair Gel.

Just follow the link if you need to see what size jar they put it in or any other facts that you might be interested in. I will usually use a tap tap motion with my fingers to gently put the eye gel on around my eyes to keep from further damaging the skin or pull on existing wrinkles or skin that is not as firm as it used to be! This eye gel will help with puffiness, darkness and lines. It is safe for even the most sensitive eyes.
I put mine in the fridge because I found out that gels work better when chilled, especially if you have a special date or get together to go to and want to make everyone there jealous of your eyes! Keeping the gel chilled tightens the skin and pores quickly. I learned that from listening to some models who say they use that trick or right before they go out on the catwalk, they will throw extreme cold water on their face to get the pores to tighten up! Enjoy that little inside information unless you already knew it.
Since I had taken these together I decided to still use it even though remember I can't use the Aloe Vera Jelly because it is for oily skin and I have dry skin. I do however, do use the Exfoliating Face & Body Scrub. I love the way the beads feel against my skin because I know I am getting all that leftover junk off of me that skincare experts keep telling us that just washing doesn't cut it!
This great gem only costs $16 and is good for 4 months! I love that it has Chamomile, Honey, Almonds, Lemongrass and several other ingredients in it that help gently lift off all of my skin's impurities and does not scratch or irritate my skin in the process.

It has a nice clean pleasant smell that says, I just had a shower. I love when I can smell the naturalness of my family and friends. That is one of my top priorities is to make my family live naturally and hopefully longer lives!

I thought I would throw in a picture of two of the "fun" things that L'Bri sent that we are all getting a kick over.

The Lips are a magnet and chip holder and the lipstick is actually a pen! I keep it in my purse to use when I write a check to see the shocked looks on people! It is hilarious!

Please check out the video I provided at top or check any of their other videos for more tips on how to have better looking skin with some of their products or to just watch to see how they use them. Also check them out on Facebook or Twitter. Remember, L'Bri is giving away $100 worth of products in my Valentine's Day Giveaway that starts today and ends on the 9th. Good Luck Everyone!

I am so happy that you are enjoying our products! I say "our" because I am now a proud Independent Consultant for L'BRI since April 2011 but have also been a loyal customer since 2004. I ask myself every day "what took me so long to join the company and reap the great benefits it has to offer?" I am not sure if you contacted the company direct or if you already have a consultant. I wanted to touch a bit on the trios that we offer. If your skin is normal to dry, we recommend our gentle trio. If you perhaps stated that you have combination skin, we recommend the deep pore cleanser, gentle freshner, and gentle moisturizer as you may have an oily T-zone but a bit more dry to the outer sides of the face and to the hairline. We recommend the deep pore trio for the oily skin type (me). Thank you for the great press. I love the bloggers in my circle! I appreciate all you do! If you don't have a consultant:
