Just Herbs Facial Serum v/s Votre Face Serum

Hello beauties,

Today I am going to do for the first time ever a comparison post between two serums, both of which I received through Fab Bag and both of which I quiet like.

Now Just Herbs Facial Serum is quiet popular these days and has everyone raving about it including me myself. However, last month I was pleasantly surprised with Votre facial serum in the January 2016 Fab Bag.


In fact, I carried the Votre Facial Serum with me to Thailand for my vacation to use it and to see its effects on my skin.

So here goes the comparison table, hope I get it right the first time (please note that my skin type is normal to combination, and I usually break out around my chin area). So, I can't promise the same results for your skin unless our skins are identical twins.

I have already shared a detailed reviews of the Just Herbs Facial Serum

The Votre Facial Serum is very opaque and whitish in colur with little or no smell. The very faint smell that I could catch for a bit laverdery to my limited sensing nose. However, the serum itself is brilliant. It is absorbed within seconds. Texture wise Votre Serum is lighter than the Just Herbs serum, which I feel may be because of it being more queous based rather than gel based. It did save my skin from all the sun and wind in Phuket, Thailand.

I got major skin tanning on the beaches, but gladly my facial skin recovered within a short span. There were no major tanning or pigmentation on my face. Part of the credit, I would give to this lovely Facial Serum from Votre. I would generously apply the serum at night and the next morning would wake up to soft and good looking skin with no tanning or ageing effects or breakouts associated with long exposures to sun. 
The results are in comparison with my hubby and son's skin, both of whom were not applying any product at night, and got major tanning on their facial skin as well.

Overall, a great product but my only ruse with both the serums are the low quantities they are available in. I find the votre serum to be lighter and faster absorbing compared to the Just Herbs serum.

Price wise, Votre serum is expensive and it precisely lasted me for a week (maybe due to its lighter texture, I applied generous quantities).

Finally, would conclude by saying that both the serums are good and you should choose one as per your budget.

See ya...

  1. Great comparison! The serums always work out to be expensive but they do make a difference to skin.
