here is a good one from racked.com), but I decided it was time to cash out my points and cancel my auto-renew yearly subscription, which ends in December. I'll enjoy my last four months of boxes, however, and July's was a pretty solid box. I'm all about facial sprays right now, so the above Avene Thermal Spring Water was a welcome sight.

Disclaimer: I purchased this.The final month's offering from the Le Métier de Beauté (LMdB) 2015-16 VIP subscription program was 2 of their Revitalizing Hydro Red Algae & Collagen masks, which retail for $15 each. Here is how they are described:
"The ultimate care your skin craves. The Revitalizing Hydro Red Algae & Collagen Mask is imbued with red algae and collagen extracts that nourish with advanced nutrients and boost skin's long term firmness and texture. The luxurious formula simply melts into skin and works its magic. The natural technology smooths, softens and improves the skin in as little as one application. Take a nap and wake up with time on your side."Ingredients: Water/Aqua, Butylene Glycol, Cetyle Ethylhexanoate, Chondrus Crispus (Carrageenan), Niacinamide, Polysorbate 80, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Ceratonia Siliqua Gum, Sucrose, Cetylpyridinium Chloride, Caprylyl Glyceryl Ether, Glyceryl Caprylate, Cetrimonium Chloride, Hexylene Glycol, Betaine, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Disodium EDTA, Adenosine, Citric Acid, Agar, Xantham Gum, Sodium Polyacrylate, Dipentaerythrityl Hexa C5-9 Acid Esters, Ceteth-10, Ceteth-20, Glyceryl Stearate, Dimethicone, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance/Perfume, ACID RED 18 (CI 16255).
So, while I did not resubscribe for year 4 of the VIP subscription program, I've got to admit that LMdB is still my favorite luxury brand. Yes, there were a few misses, but hits outweighed them for me, and I've discovered more than a few favorites from this brand over the last 3 years. I'll have to admire year 4 items from afar :-)
