Review: Votre Vue The "It Kit" Gift Set

Let me begin by telling you how excited I am to share this with you! Of all of the gift sets I've seen and had the pleasure of reviewing this holiday, this is definitely one of the most impressive. Check out Votre Vu's Forget the Baubles...Get The "It Kit" holiday gift set!

I usually don't include promo pictures in my reviews, but this shot is a great one and since the train case that comes with this kit is very hard to photograph because of its shiny exterior, I thought it would be best to let you see it in this image. The train case is really great quality and made of heavy material. It has a stiff frame so it definitely holds its shape. I think it's so chic and cute! Perfect for bringing your favorite beauty products on an overnight or weekend trip!

Inside Vu's "It Kit"
Each product comes in its own drawstring bag with the Votre Vu logo on it. I thought this was a nice touch!

The "It Kit" ships snuggly in an attractive white box  nestled in pretty pink, crinkly packing paper. The box is embellished with some fun Votre Vu traveling stickers and ribbon. Unwrapping this was literally like opening up a gift on Christmas morning for me! Perfect for men that are hopeless when it comes to wrapping ;)
Here's your first peak inside at the "It Kit"!

Duette Luxe Lips & Tarte D'Amande
This combination tube of lip balm and hand cream is so fabulous and convenient. I heard about this recently, but seeing it in person was a real treat. The top of the cap holds a super hydrating lip balm and a little mirror. The second section of the cap opens up to the hand cream portion of the tube. 

First Impression: I tried both products and found them to both be very hydrating! The smell was light and pleasant and had what I swear was a hint of coconut. I'm very sensitive when it comes to smells and both of these were fine for me. 

Here's the very top of the Duette cap, which holds the lip balm and a tiny mirror. I think this is so neat, so I had to share a picture!

Here's the top portion of the cap opened up to reveal the hand cream portion. So neat!

Toute Le Monde
This ultra-luxe eye gelee is a great addition to this gift set in my opinionand I liked it just as much as I liked Votre Vu's Eye Beauty Balm (see my review HERE).

First Impression - It feels soothing on your skin and definitely left the skin around my eyes supple and hydrated. Especially with the holidays, I tend to need a little extra attention around my eyes so this is perfect!

SnapDragon Beauty Beverage
Nutrition Label
A combination of beauty products and fruit juice may seem a bit strange, but I'm a firm believer that you have to take care of your body from the inside out if you want natural beauty. This "beauty beverage" is chock full of so many fabulous ingredients, you have to see it for yourself!

First Impression - I am very excited to try this! I wasn't able to right away because I've been a bit under the weather and didn't want to give you my impression while feeling ill, but I'm a huge fan of natural juices.

Extra Little Bag
This little bag was included in the train case. It has a drawstring and is quite cushioned on the sides.

This fabulous holiday gift set is priced at $86 retail, though I believe it has a retail value of $143!

Where to Buy

Final Thoughts
I love, love this gift set! I think it includes some amazing, must-have products that are very impressive. I also think the train case is absolutely fabulous! It's packaged well and like always, Votre Vu really goes the distance to make sure that every detail is perfection--packaging to products. Overall, if you're looking for a sophisticated gift set with a real "wow" factor, I think this is it! You may also want to check out Votre Vu's Winter Wonderhands--definitely something I'd love to see under my tree this Christmas ;) Winter Wonderhands includes an impressive mixture of lip and hand duettes, including a rosy version of the lip balm--dying to try it!

What do you think? Is this something you'd like to get for the holidays? 


  1. Dear Doira,

    Thank you so much for sharing your review of Votre Vu with your readers! Hopefully you will get some Winter Wonderhands under your tree because the raspberry tinted balm is amazing.
