Thirsty Towels will quench your desire for an updated bathroom

January is an interesting month in the retail world. When I shop I find that all the organization items have been brought out, more vitamins and supplements are lining the shelves, and our home is the star again. Sheets and towels are ready to be refreshed to bring your house up to date for 2019.

Thirsty Towels packaging

May I suggest the most incredible towels I’ve ever tried? Thirsty Towels has a whole line of products like robes, spa towels, bath towels and mats in every size. They even have soap and a line of robes for little ones that are just so cute.

Thirsty Towels bath sheet and hand towel

The towels I was sent are from the Presidential Line and are 700 gram weight. They are thick and plush and drink up all the water from my skin after my shower. I love to wrap myself in a bath sheet and enjoy the warmth and luxuriousness of the experience.

Thirsty Towels navy and natural bath sheets

I am thrilled that the two bath sheets and hand towels I have are perfect colors for my bathroom. I received navy and natural for my gray and white bathroom and they liven it up from the gray towels I’d been using. They are available in 12 beautiful shades: White, Natural (No-Dye), Shore, Azure, Pewter, Iron, Celery, Moss, Peony, Wine, Navy Blue and Turkish Coffee.

Thirsty Towels Presidential colors

100% Genuine Turkish Cotton-Made in Turkey

In search of the perfect bath sheet? This is our answer to our customers who asked us to provide them with the towel that no luxury department store or specialty store could. It has been specially woven using zero-twist technology to allow air and water molecules to be incorporated in to the individual terry loops to result in the plushest, most absorbent and softest bath sheet one could ever hope for. Here it is; the unbelievable 24 oz. per sq. yd. plush, thick and thirsty? Turkish Towel which translates to a lofty 700 gram weight. Our genuine Turkish Towels get only better with every wash as the thick terry loops bloom and absorb every drop of water on your body. 

The bath sheets are 40″x 80″ so they are big enough for both my husband and I to each wrap ourselves after a shower or bath. I’m in love! A regular bath towel doesn’t compare.

Thirsty Towels hand towels

The lush hand towels are 16″x 28″ so they aren’t skimpy. They sop up the water easily when you are washing up and dry quickly when hung up. While these luxurous bath sheets are $65 each Thirsty Towels have a variety of thickness in their towels so you can find love at all prices with them. They’ve washed beautifully and I’m sure they aren’t going to fade like my less expensive towels.

Thirsty Towels finishing

The towels are finished perfectly and haven’t rolled at all when washed.

Are you ready to update your home and enjoy it at the same time? If so try out Thirsty Towels.  —  Marcia

Mid January Fashion Flash

Welcome back to FASHION FLASH. The famed blogger Erika of Notes From My Dressing Table is our clever hostess this week with lots of fun articles and even a cartoon that sums up how we feel in the cold weather. I hope you’ll join us to see the great articles.

Glow from within polishes from Cirque and Blush

At the moment I’m in a phase of choosing “glow from within” polishes. These magical shades are brightening up my life while my other pretties are hiding in the dark. I’ve chosen 3 polishes to share with you.

I’ll start with Cirque Colors since I’ve fallen in love with the 2 polishes I recently bought and have already ordered more shades. All Cirque Colors products are non-toxic, 4-free, vegan & cruelty-free. Designed and handmade in Brooklyn, NY.

CIRQUE COLORS Cloud Nine

CIRQUE CLOUD NINE is fantastic, fabulous, gorgeous, beautiful, and amazing. Not only did it apply like a dream, it lasted for 7 full days without a chip in sight. And it delighted me the entire time. It’s a shade in their newest collection, Dreamscape, and is described as a lavender purple polish with vibrant pink shimmer and delicate holographic sparkle. At $12.50 it’s just a little bit more costly than brands like OPI but you get more bang for the buck with this.

CIRQUE FATA MORGANA is also a lavender polish but it’s nothing at all like Cloud Nine. It’s much lighter, almost like a light gray that leans to lavender and pink. The sparkle in this is described as copper but I’d never describe it that way since it’s such a light copper and there’s so much pink to it. This light toned polishes seems to look different depending on the lighting around you.

CIRQUE COLORS Fata Morgana

BLUSH LACQUERS is an indie nail polish company that you need to know about. The polishes I’ve bought from BLUSH are some of the best available. I get compliments galore on the polishes especially Bahamas that I recently wore for a week ($13). I love it when my nails are noticed and Bahamas is a star in that category.

BLUSH LACQUERS Bahamas

This is part of their Beachside Sunset collection and I think it personifies the collection perfectly. “Bahamas is a periwinkle blue base with an orange shimmer that shifts to gold and green at extreme angles.”

All BLUSH polishes are 5 free which means that they have no camphor, toluene, formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate (DBP) or formaldehyde resins.  All polishes are handmade and mixed in small batches using quality ingredients that are cosmetic grade.

I’ll share more Blush Lacquers polishes in the future as well as the new Cirque I just ordered. You aren’t going to go wrong with either of these two brands since they are long lasting and the creators take great pride in what they sell.  —  Marcia

Serums for beauties over 45 from PRAI Beauty – a Side by Side review!

If you are a fan of home shopping, you might be familiar with the PRAI Beauty skin care line. PRAI Beauty is a luxury skincare line that is specifically made for women over the age of 45. PRAI Beauty is a line of great interest to Beauty Info Zone for many reasons: the products are affordable, cruelty free, and PRAI Beauty promises that their formulas are effective and show results on mature skin in seven days. PRAI Beauty also donates a portion of every sale to helping animals which is a cause we are always behind. There is a lot to explore in this line, including products for the neck and decolletage, serums and concentrates, moisturizers, cleansers, body care, and fragrance. Let’s see what Lisa and Marcia think about the serums they have been testing!

PRAI 24K Gold Caviar Wrinkle Repair Serum

LISA IS USING PRAI 24K GOLD CAVIAR WRINKLE REPAIR SERUM (1 OZ. $40.95)

The PRAI 24K Gold Caviar Wrinkle Repair Serum is definitely luxurious looking! The serum has a golden tint and is full of gold flecks that are stunning to look at. Inside the see-through bottle the serum has something called PRAI Beauty’s LineFactor™, which is infused with 24K gold and leaves skin looking glowy and luminous. It has an immediate effect – I put this on as my serum in the morning and my skin immediately looks great thanks to the gold flecks.

PRAI Beauty 24K Gold Caviar Wrinkle Repair Serum

PRAI Beauty 24K Gold Caviar Wrinkle Repair Serum

I love looking better instantly! PRAI Beauty did a consumer perception study with 34 women who used the 24K Gold Caviar Wrinkle Repair Serum for just 4 days and 97% said that they noticed a visible reduction in the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

So I don’t know how you can have actual wrinkle reduction in just a few days, but it’s not just immediate gratification with this serum.

Features:

  • 24K Gold helps skin maintain healthy collagen by combating free radicals and environmental aggressors
  • Improves the appearance of skin’s firmness, texture and elasticity by 61%
  • LineFactor™, derived from Hibiscus Seed helps reactivate skin’s regeneration process
  • Pea and Bamboo Extracts increases the skin’s natural exfoliation – improving discoloration and wrinkles
  • Precious PRAI Oil imparts smoothness and suppleness to skin

    PRAI Beauty 24K Gold Caviar Wrinkle Repair Serum

I like instant results, but I like the long-term results even better. PRAI Beauty is very committed to helping the animal kingdom, and they have some super fun packaging options for products that represent different animals. I am totally obsessed with the gorgeous Peacock version of the PRAI 24K GOLD CAVIAR WRINKLE REPAIR SERUM – it’s $49.95 for a 3.4 oz size, which is actually a great deal since the 1 oz size in the plain packaging is $40.95.

Prai 24K Gold Caviar Serum

MARCIA IS USING PRAI PLATINUM FIRM & LIFT SERUM (1 oz. $40.95)

PRAI PLATINUM Firm & Lift Serum and Eye Creme

I’m a Firm & Lift person. Not only do I have this PRAI Platinum Firm & Lift Serum but I’m also using the PRAI Firm & Lift Eye Creme. It’s a good thing that this is the one I’m using since PRAI is targeting gravity prone skin with these. As the oldest of the two of us I battle that more than my blog partner. Who doesn’t want firmer, more youthful skin? I sure do and PRAI is helping me with this goal.

PRAI Platinum Firm & Lift Serum

The serum is very lightweight and absorbs quickly. It has a fragrance to it but it doesn’t last for long and I’m comfortable with it. The moisturizer I’ve been using over this is fragrance free so my nose isn’t pummeled with aroma.

PRAI Platinum Firm & Lift Serum

One of the things I like best about Firm & Lift Serum is that I can use it as a layering skin care item. I like to mix and match so that I can cover more than one base at a time. I’ll use it with a Retinol cream in the evening and a Vitamin C serum during the day or night. PRAI uses Prai Extract in their products. Here’s more information you need:

Features:

  • Platinum delivers antioxidants and helps fight free radicals and environmental aggressors
  • Chlorella preserves skin and protects against premature aging
  • Kombuchka, derived from the fermentation of black tea, helps to protect collagen and elastin – repairing and preventing creases and sagging
  • Precious PRAI Oil imparts smoothness and suppleness to the skin
  • Red algae bind water to skin, increasing hydration levels
  • SYN-COLL™ mimics the body’s natural collagen production by the way of Tissue Growth Factor

Of course you don’t have to remember all of this but what you need to know is what goodness is within to make your skin look more youthful especially when you start to sag.

I absolutely love the variety of packaging (and prices) for this serum. I have a 30mL/1 Fl Oz size that looks utilitarian ($44.95) but if buying it go for the fun ones like a jeweled seal (1.7 Fl Oz, $49.95), bigger and so much fun to look at!

PRAI Platinum Firm & Lift Serum

You can find PRAI Beauty online at their home website and on hsn.com.  If you are over 45 and you want affordable, effective skin care this is a great line to explore. We are both very happy with our serums and are still testing some other products that we will tell you all about soon!

Arbonne’s first steps to bright and glowing: RE9 Advanced Brightening Cleansing Foam and Toner

Arbonne RE9 Advanced Brightening Cleansing Foam and Toner

The first steps to bright, glowy skin are always a great cleanser and toner.  Obviously if skin isn’t cleansed well it can’t breathe, gets congested, and it looks dull and sad.  So bring on the cleanser and the toner, and get ready for happy, glowy skin!  Arbonne says it has the answer with their RE9 Advanced Brightening Cleansing Foam and Toner, so read on to find out if indeed they will bring you happy bright skin.

Arbonne RE9 Advanced Brightening Cleansing Foam

Arbonne RE9 Advanced Brightening Cleansing Foam

RE9 ADVANCED®BRIGHTENING CLEANSING FOAM ($44) isn’t what I expected.  Based on the name I thought it would come out as a foam, but it’s actually a pearlescent liquid that gently foams up with water.  It does have a light fragrance so if this is an issue take note – the rose scent is light and comes from natural botanicals.  I usually do not like rose scented skin care but this is quite light and doesn’t bother me.

The ingredients are excellent and interesting:

Cherry blossom extract promotes the appearance of skin radiance with hydration

Birch leaf extract hydrates to help promote luminescent, flawless-looking skin

Licorice root extract hydrates, leaving skin with a vibrant, healthy-looking, natural glow

Cucumber, watercress, and red clover extracts moisturize to soothe the skin

I do find that double cleansing is necessary when I wear full coverage makeup so I use makeup remover first.  Then this cleanser really shines, further removing dirt and oil and leaving my skin very soft and feeling fresh.  It has my skin looking young and glowy, and my darker areas of hyperpigmentation definitely look lighter.  I like using this cleanser in conjunction with the RE9 Advanced Brightening Toner.

Arbonne RE9 Advanced Brightening Toner

Arbonne RE9 Advanced Brightening Toner

The RE9 ADVANCED®BRIGHTENING TONER ($39) is an alcohol-free toner that hydrates skin, exfoliates away any dead skin cells that may be left after cleansing, and brightens skin.  Like the cleanser, this toner has a light fragrance of rose, so if you are sensitive this wouldn’t be the toner for you.  If not, take a look – it has great ingredients.

Cherry blossom extract promotes the appearance of skin radiance with hydration
Birch leaf extract hydrates to help promote luminescent, flawless-looking skin
Licorice root extract hydrates, leaving skin with a vibrant, healthy-looking, natural glow
Prickly pear flower extract acts as an exfoliant, helping to reveal more luminous-looking skin while improving skin smoothness and tone
Cucumber, watercress, and red clover extracts moisturize to soothe the skin

Both products have what is called the ‘Arbonne Advantage’, the proprietary SakuraBright Complex, a blend of brightening ingredients that over time will brighten skin, increase luminosity, and lighten dark spots.

I like that the cleanser and toner do the job of cleansing and toning, and then some – the extra brightening and luminosity is always a plus.  I wish they were unfragranced, but the fragrance is quite light.  Otherwise, these are excellent products that really do a great job.  My skin is indeed happy and bright!  – Lisa
