Vital ET Recovery Body Boost by Le Métier de Beauté

Disclaimer:  I received this as part of the VIP subscription service, which I paid for.
Well, Le Métier de Beauté's Vital ET Recovery Body Boost ($125) is definitely the most expensive body lotion I've ever tried. I can't say I would ever spend that much for this type of product, but as part of the VIP subscription program, I'm game. So, I wonder what makes this baby so special? Let's look at some of the claims:
Redefine Age
Replenish, repair and protect your entire body with Vital ET Recovery Boost – Body. This highly effective form of Vitamin E defends against free radicals. Free radicals are known to damage collagen, create dryness and lead to the development of fine lines and wrinkles. This deeply reparative serum will drive super antioxidants and vitamins directly into your skin, leaving you with glowing, age-resistant skin. 
Key Ingredients:
TPM® Technology. Vital ET®, a patented technology that decreases appearance of redness and swelling while fortifying resistance to inflammation caused by environmental stressors.
Vitamin E in skincare is nothing new, so the patented TPM (Targeted Penetration Matrix) Technology must be the game changer. It was hard to find much detail on this TPM Technology, but it was developed by an Australian drug delivery company called Phosphagenics in 2002 and has 28 patents protecting it. Phosphogenics' other products include opioid skin patches for clinically based pain therapy, so they definitely sound legit. Here's a snippet of what I could find:
Phosphagenics core technology offering is built around the science and application of phosphorylation, a process where the addition of a phosphate group has been found to enhance the bioavailability, activity and safety of existing pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals, as well as to assist in the production of drug delivery platforms.
Obviously, only long term use will truly tell the story, but I can say this is a nicely formulated body lotion/cream that does a good job of leaving my skin feeling soft and hydrated. It has more of a gel than a shea butter type of consistency, which means it's lighter and does not leave any greasy after feel. According to LMdB they do not add fragrance to their skincare, and I could not detect any in this.
The current year's VIP subscription program ends in July, so I've only got one more month of LMdB goodness coming my way.  I did not resubscribe as I'm swimming in product at the moment and have had more than my fair share of unexpected expenses lately (hello, new air conditioning unit).  Hopefully I will not experience too strong of a case of FOMO, but if you are interested, it looks like slots are still available here.
