Le Mont Botanique Review

disclaimer: these products were very graciously sent to me by Le Mont Botanique for review. All thoughts, comments, pictures and opinions are honest and my own. 

Last month Le Mont Botanique contacted me via twitter about sending me some of their facial products. Of course, I jumped at the offer-I mean, who doesn't want to try a new facial product plus, with all of the options out there, it is hard to pick one that you will love. 

Le Mont is a skincare company that specializes in formulating their products with 100% natural essential oils anthe highest quality pure plant extracts. Some of the ingredients that they use are jojoba oil, green tea extract, avocado oil, and rose water.

According to the Le Mont website, the majority of cosmetics contain chemical preservatives to ensure a long shelf life, and creams contain thickeners to make them easy to apply. The unique aspect of Le Mont is that they do not put any additives into their products. They also package their products in a single use container to ensure the products freshness. I think that this is awesome also from a hygienic aspect. If you think about it, continually putting your dirty/oily hands on the tip of the facial wash you use daily is gross! These single use tubes from Le Mont are fantastic! It also helps you from using too much. 

Finally, Le Mont does not use anything that could trigger allergies as their formulas are all natural. They are also free of Parabens, parafins, animal products or any other synthetic or chemical substances. 

I was sent:

I used this in place of my Urban Decay B6 Prep Spray. It took a day or so to get used to the amount that they design for each day but, it definitely did the trick. The primer kept my face shine free and also moisturized. Since I do have drier skin and it shows through my powder, I used the primer for morning make up application. However, LMB says that it can be used in the morning in conjunction with the day serum or at night. 

This revitalising serum I used in place of my covergirl moisturizer. The formula of this serum is fabulous and the amount per tube goes a long way. My only issue with using this is that there is no SPF in it. During the Florida summers, that is not the best thing but, other than that, I really loved using this serum. 

I am not kidding when I say this is a miracle product. My face always feels so gross to me after wearing makeup and most night creams are too heavy or keep me up from the smell. This night cream was perfection in a tube. The smell is amazing and calming almost like a lavender vanilla sort of a scent and it is very light. Again, it goes a long way. Also, my face was incredibly smooth in the morning! 

Eye serums are another thing that I am hesitant of due to some of the higher perfumed ones however, this serum again, has a pleasant smell that isn't over powering. I felt like the serum helped with the 'statement' bags that are always under my eyes and also took away some of the puffy-ness. 

This was included in the samples I was sent however, Stefanie, the lady whom I was in contact with said that it should not be used unless you have acne. I get a blemish every now and then but I do not have any acne areas so, I did not try this. 

I think that out of all the products I received, this and the night serum were my favorite. I just saw such a change in my skin with them. This is an 8 hour serum that I would use after I got home from errands and such as was able to take off my make up. It is a lotion but almost feels like a mask minus the having to wash it off  part as this just soaks into your skin. My face was definitely more moisturized after this treatment. 



These products although expensive (43 EUR) are definitely worth it. My face was transformed in only 5 days to much healthier and moisturized. The customer service with Le Mont can't be beat either. Stefanie stayed in contact with me throughout the whole shipping process and once the products were received, made her self available for any questions I had. My favorite part though about each product is that it is made with hygiene in mind, cruelty free and made with 100% natural essential oils-can't beat that! 


Have you ever heard of Le Mont? What is your favorite skin care product?

  3. This is such a great review! I have bad acne & used to take medication for it but I've decided to start going more natural using coconut oil & oatmeal to wash my face. I've never heard of this brand but I think I may need to try it!
