May is an exciting month in the world of nail polish since Sinful Colors has three fabulous collections coming out that will make your nails stand out and your wallet stay fat.

pr samples

Collection one is Color Rebellious ($1.99) which consists of 8 bright and beautiful colors. The Queen of Pop inspired these with ambitious super saturated shades to light up the dance floor. I can’t wait to see these especially the limited edition polishes and grab them up.

Limited Edition  Cherish Me – hardcore pewter polish with heavy metal glitter accents  Starlight – a star bright glittering gold metallic  Pop Queen – shimmering blue-grey metallic studded with bright blue heavy metal accents

The Classics  Cream Pink – bubblegum pink  Endless Blue – en vogue electric blue  Energetic Red – bright lipstick red with attitude  Feel the Vibe – vibrant orange shade Yolo Yellow – bright yellow hue

Sinful Colors Color Eccentric

Collection two is Color Eccentric ($2.99) which are bright and eccentric neon polishes reminiscent of the early days of David Bowie’s glam rock music.

Limited Edition

Diamond Blogs – neon fuchsia,  Interglamatic – vivid violet,  She’s From Mars – neon bright pink,  Eccentricity – neon orange,  Out in Space – neon yellow,  Jean Queen – vibrant neon teal

Top it Off!  Top Coat – shockingly shiny top coat to lock in crazy color

Illuminating Base  White On Time – a white shade to be applied under neons for the ultimate vivid effect

Collection 3 are the funky flamboyant Color Symbolic ($2.99) shades. These are reminders of Prince’s vibrant music.

Limited Edition  Cranberry Ca raze – fuchsia pearl with an unexpected violet flash,  Funky Fierce – violet metallic with a flamboyant gold flash,  Rule My World – decadent gold metallic,  So Symbolic – sparkling velvety purple

The Classics  Devious – deep blood red,  Pragmatic – feisty shade of lavender,  Prosecco – glittering neutral gold,  Tutu Thrill – pastel pink

Now that you know what to look out for let me share some of the NEON Color Eccentric Polishes that I was sent. As soon as this is available in stores I’m off to buy White On Time since I think the neon effect will be totally outrageous with the white base.

Sinful Colors Diamond Blogs

Sinful Colors Diamond Blogs

Diamond Blogs is a neon fuchsia that leans a little red. This limited edition shade is going to attract all the right kind of attention.

Sinful Color Eccentricity

Sinful Color Eccentricity

Eccentricity is a neon orange that you want on your tips or toes especially when it’s bathing suit weather. It’s not a pumpkin orange, it’s actually more of a pinky coral and is beautiful.

Sinful Color Out in Space

Sinful Color Out in Space

Out in Space is a neon yellow but with a more subtle look than you’d expect. It’s a sunny color that isn’t in your face – maybe because it’s out in space. It’s the color of the crayon you’d use to draw stars in the sky.

Sinful Colors Intergalactic

Sinful Colors Intergalactic

Purple lovers will celebrate Intergalactic. This is not your mother’s purple, it’s Prince purple with its brightness and vivaciousness.

Sinful Colors She's From Mars

Sinful Colors She’s From Mars

Last of the 5 I have is She’s From Mars and I loved wearing this shade. It is a bright neon pink but it’s also sort of soft at the same time.

Sinful Colors She's From Mars

This isn’t what I expect when I see the name neon. It’s pink and mellow with the neon as an afterthought.

If you are a polish lover look to Sinful Colors for their new collections. These wear as long as the more expensive colors but the cost is minimal. Cheaper than a Unicorn Frapiccino, longer lasting, but just as fun.  —  Marciasinful colors neon bottles wheel standng5 free polishes (Tolulene, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, DPB and Camphor Free)

Head over Heels for Oribe Shampoo for Beautiful Color

Oribe Shampoo for Beautiful Hair (amazon.com photo)

Oribe is a high-end brand that was developed by a celebrity hairstylist and two beauty industry veterans. They use skin care technology and natural actives to create high-performance good-for-you products.

I know this isn’t organic but I haven’t found an organic shampoo that I love. Therefore I’ve been using Oribe (pronounced OrBay) for my color treated hair. It’s formulated without sulfates or parabens and right now that’s good enough for me.

The entire ingredients from the Oribe website are:
Oribe Signature Complex (Watermelon, Lychee and Edelweiss Flower Extracts) These defend hair from oxidative stress, photoaging and the deterioration of natural keratin, all while protecting from the drying, damaging and color-depleting effects of the elements.

Bioflavonoids, responsible for giving fruits their fantastic hues, protect hair’s own color from fading and discoloration.

Baobab Tree Extract, from an African plant known for its hydration storage, offers the same benefit to parched, color-treated tresses, providing superior moisture to the driest areas first.

Edelweiss Flower Extract, from the Swiss Alps, provides natural protection against the drying, damaging and color-depleting effects of the elements.

Kaempferia Galanga Root Extract, found in Southeast Asia, Delivers natural UV protection.

Multi-Layered UV Protection System delivers long-lasting UV protection and protects hair from the harmful effects of the sun.

Watermelon Extract, from the Kalahari Desert, provides natural protection against oxidative stress and the deterioration of natural keratin.

And the benefits are:
-Gentle cleanser

-Preserves color

-Fortifies over-processed and chemically-treated hair

-Protects against the color-depleting effects of environmental pollutants and the sun

-Formulated without parabens or sodium chloride. Color and keratin treatment safe. UV protection for hair.

Even though this is priced at $44 it’s worth it for what it does for my hair. I love the light lather and how my wavy hair looks both shiny and healthy. My color stays true within the four week time period in which I color my hair. Even my stylist remarked on my color not fading. When I had highlights they also remained fresh. It’s lightly scented but once rinsed out you really can’t detect any fragrance.

I vow to love, honor and Oribe.  –  Phyllis

Are you looking for the absolute best serum? Try The Jojoba Company Absolute Serum then

The Jojoba Company 100% Natural Absolute Serum

The Jojoba Company 100% Natural Absolute Serum

The Jojoba Company Absolute Serum is a big departure from my typical skincare recommendations. When I first put this on my face I was totally taken aback by the fragrance of it. The fragrance needs to be addressed first for me since I normally avoid scents other than citrus on my face so this is really an anomaly for me. What I notice is a more masculine scent, it’s more herbal and outdoorsy than I use. BUT, and this is important to note, it dissipates in a minute or two and then I notice nothing. (press sample)

Jojoba Company Natural Pigmentation Oil, 100% Jojoba, Absolute Serum

Jojoba Company Natural Pigmentation Oil, 100% Jojoba, Absolute Serum

I’ve reviewed other Jojoba Company products because I believe in the company. It’s cruelty free and uses nothing artificial in their ingredients. Actually the name of this is 100% Natural Absolute Serum.

Here’s what they have to share about the benefits of Absolute Serum:

Benefits: Absolute Serum helps reduce the visible signs of lines and wrinkles and firm up the appearance of slackened skin naturally. The di-peptide carnosine in conjunction with hyaluronic acid and silymarin, a potent antioxidant from milk thistle, work together to aid collagen production and refine skin smoothness and expression lines. Skin is relaxed, less lined, intensely re-plumped and visibly smoothed. It combines Australian Kakadu plum and lillypilly, high in vitamin C and deeply nourishing.

The Jojoba Company 100% Natural Absolute Serum

The Jojoba Company 100% Natural Absolute Serum

Now what do I notice? First I use serums daily and often layer them. I think serums have contributed greatly to the elasticity and condition of my skin. As one of the older bloggers around I don’t want my attitude nor my face to give that away. Jojoba Company products have helped keep at least my face looking younger than my birth certificate shows.

The Jojoba Company 100% Natural Absolute Serum

The Jojoba Company 100% Natural Absolute Serum

Absolute Serum isn’t sticky on my skin. Since it’s such a powerful anti-oxidant serum you don’t need a lot so the bottle will last for you. I apply this at night prior to moisturizer. During the day I’ll use it first and then apply a Vitamin C serum over it, let those dry and continue with sunscreen and moisturizer. It doesn’t interfere with makeup. If a product balls up under foundation that means it’s not good for my daytime routine. I can use Absolute Serum day or night. I’m not sure if my skin is less lined  but it definitely feels smooth. Most importantly, I believe that this pure product is doing something wonderful for my skin. And seeing is believing.  —  Marcia

 

Ingredients List:

Aqua (Water), Glycerin**, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil*, Terminalia Ferdinandiana (Kakadu Plum) Fruit Extract, Eleutherococcus Senticosus (Ginseng Siberian) Root Extract, Syzygium Leuhmanii (Lilly Pilly) Fruit Extract, Citrus Aurantium Amara (Bitter Orange) Flower Oil, Sodium Hyaluronate, Lecithin, Carnosine, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Silybum Marianum Fruit Extract, Alcohol, Benzyl Alcohol**, Salicylic Acid**, Sorbic Acid**, Chondrus Crispus, (Xanthan Gum, Potassium Sorbate, Citric Acid, Sodium Benzoate, Citral^, Geraniol^, Limonene^, Linalool^.

FarmHouse Fresh This Bunny Loves You wins my Makeup Wars battle

This week Makeup Wars chose the topic of favorite scrubs and exfoliators. I thought and thought about what to share and had several choices but FarmHouse Fresh won my heart with THIS BUNNY LOVES YOU Soft Skin Gift Set. When this set was sent everything else flew from my mind and I couldn’t think of anything else that I wanted to share besides this.

FarmHouse Fresh This Bunny Loves You Gift Set

FarmHouse Fresh This Bunny Loves You Gift Set

If you’ve read Beauty Info Zone then you know that FarmHouse Fresh is the brand that changed my mind about fragranced products. Once Lisa talked me into trying their Watermelon Basil Body Scrub I was sold. I’m pretty sure she’s sorry about that because we now have to fight over who is the one who can keep this as part of their bath and body routine.

This Bunny Loves You is a gift set for you or for someone you do love. It would make a great Mother’s Day gift as well. It contains 2 full size products ($36). Inside you’ll find Sweet Cream Fine Body Scrub and Fluffy Bunny Shea Butter Hand Cream plus on the outside you’ll find a great wooden spoon meant to mix the scrub.

It’s the Sweet Cream body scrub that is the most loved product in this box for me. While FarmHouse Fresh has many products in this fragrance this is the first time I’ve had the pleasure to use it.

Let’s talk about the wonderful scent. It’s reminds me of sugar and cream and everything nice. It’s a sweet fragrance even though it’s a sea salt exfoliator. FarmHouse Fresh scrubs separate in the jar so you need to mix them up which is where the great wooden spoon comes in.

Mix up the fine grain fresh sea salt and rice bran oil and you’re on your way to a lightweight, non-greasy soft feeling. I love this all over my body and it leaves me with a fragrance that lasts throughout the day. You can even use this at your sink to exfoliate your hands and/or feet to keep them soft and smooth.fhf this bunny loves you box info

While Fluffy Bunny Shea Butter Hand Cream doesn’t officially fit in this week’s Makeup Wars it’s worth knowing about. FHF makes several hand creams and Fluffy Bunny fits in perfectly for spring. The scent is described as a Lavender-Mint Julep (Kentucky Derby anyone??).

FarrmHouse Fresh Fluffy Bunny Hand Cream

FarmHouse Fresh Hand Creams are loaded with supple shea and cocoa butter and Vitamin E packed jojoba and soybean oils along with Aloe to help with skin irritation. They are created to help with even super dry skin yet they aren’t greasy. Within minutes of massaging this in you can go about your business.

FarrmHouse Fresh Fluffy Bunny Hand Cream is 96% natural and like all their products are paraben free, sulfate free, and of course cruelty free.

While you can buy these products separately if you are in need of a gift then This Bunny Loves You will win you extra points! If you are like me and love a body scrub then Sweet Cream is going to thrill your body and senses. Can you see why I couldn’t get this out of my mind for Makeup Wars?  —  Marcia
