Summerize your winter skin with ALLEVEN London Colour Shield!

ALLEVEN London Colour Shield

Warmer weather is finally approaching, which means all that skin that was under wraps for months is finally going to see the sun again!  And oh, that sun feels SO GOOD.  However, my skin definitely looks like it’s been hiding for months and months…it’s a whiter shade of pale that doesn’t begin to match my face and decolletage, and those super white calves look even bigger than they actually are.  Not to mention that hella bruise I acquired when I got in a fight with the couch and the couch won.  A quick and effective fix can be found with ALLEVEN London Colour Shield ($48 for 100 ml).

ALLEVEN London Colour Shield

ALLEVEN London Colour Shield is a spray on tint with skin tone adapting pigments or ‘smart pigments’ that dry super quick.  You can use it anywhere on the body, including the face.  It evens out skin tone like nobody’s business, and it leaves skin with a lovely soft and velvety appearance and feel.  The pigment is water and transfer resistant, so you can feel comfortable wearing clothing and even going to bed with this on your skin.

Essentially, ALLEVEN London Colour Shield is a body concealer that can be used in many ways.

• Airbrush perfection in a fine mist
• A sunless glow with sun protection
• A lightweight foundation with anti-aging benefits
• A tinted moisturizer with perfect coverage
• A matte, velvet-like finish and no sticky or white residue
• A quick-drying formula that forms a mineral barrier for skin protection and hydration with
maximum transfer, water and rub resistance…

Before ALLEVEN London Colour Shield

After ALLEVEN London Colour Shield in Ivory

ALLEVEN London Colour Shield comes in four colors:  Ivory, which is for Light to Medium skin tones with cool undertones (pink, red, bluish); Sand, which is for Medium to Tan skin tones with warm undertones (yellow, peachy, golden); Amber, which is for Medium Tan to Brown skin tones with neutral undertones (a mix of warm and cool); and Onyx, which is for Dark skin tones with neutral undertones.

I find that ALLEVEN London Colour Shield applies easily with the aerosol spray.  The further away you hold the can, the lighter the application.  It evens out my skin tone, gives it a luminosity and some life, and covers imperfections like that nasty bruise.  Something that makes this different from most tinted spray on products is it also provides broad-spectrum sun protection, which is really nice – I love a multi-tasking product! ALLEVEN London Colour Shield has a distinct floral fragrance that does linger, so if you aren’t a fan of fragranced products, this unfortunately wouldn’t be for you.

Benefits:

  • Fine, airbrush-like mist for easy application.
  • Skin-adapting pigment to veil the skin with sheer pigments.
  • Lightweight matte foundation to diminish imperfections.
  • Water resistant.
  • Maximum transfer control.
  • Tinted skincare treatment combats premature aging and provides intense hydration.
  • Broad-spectrum sun protection from UVA, UVB, IR and cellular damage.
  • Activates the production of melanin for a sunless glow.
  • Stays in place until you are ready to take it off.

ALLEVEN London Colour Shield

It has some really interesting ingredients that make ALLEVEN London Colour Shield stand out from other spray on tints:
LIPID PLASMA relieves sensitive skin and protects against daily micro-damage and seals in water for long-lasting hydration and filling effect.

CORALINE RED ALGAE shield that prevents IR-, UV-, and Thermal-aging and protects cell DNA from oxidative damage.

CORRECTING & SPECIAL EFFECT PIGMENTS form a corrective veil to blur imperfections, even out skin tone and provide a sun-kissed glow.

Another fun fact – ALLEVEN’s Colour Shield works great on every skin type, including sensitive and dehydrated skin.  You can find it at Neiman Marcus, Skinstore.com, and ALLEVEN.com, so pick some up and summerize your winter skin!  – Lisa

Dry skin relief while getting your beauty sleep with Dove DermaSeries Overnight Face Cream

I love my beauty sleep. I get out of bed in the morning and look longingly at my bed, already thinking about when we will finally be reunited…and I never feel guilty about sleeping as long as possible. Sleep is so important for your overall health and your skin especially benefits from every extra Z that you enjoy. If you have very dry skin or dry patches, you will be happy to know that Dove has a great product for you – the new Dove DermaSeries Overnight Face Cream ($14.99).

Dove DermaSeries Overnight Face Cream

Now, the Dove DermaSeries Overnight Face Cream is for severely dry, dehydrated skin, and I have an oily t-zone. However, I have a perpetually dry forehead – so dry that it gets flaky. You can use this product as an all-over treatment or as a spot treatment so I was happy to give it a shot. For something that sounds heavy-duty it actually has a nice, light texture that isn’t greasy at all. Ingredients include shea butter and glycerin, and the difference it makes on skin is immediate.

  • Unique shea butter and glycerin blend clinically-proven to work overnight
  • Rich, non-comedogenic moisturizing night cream melts into skin
  • Promotes cell renewal overnight for hydrated, nourished skin every morning
  • Soothes very dry skin and strengthens the stratum corneum
  • Paraben free, cruelty free, fragrance free and dermatologist-tested night-time moisturizer
  • Recognized by the National Eczema Association as suitable for eczema-prone skin

    Dove DermaSeries Overnight Face Cream

    Dove DermaSeries Overnight Face Cream

After cleansing at night, just smooth this on dry areas then jump into bed. As your body slumbers, the cream repairs and soothes dry skin, strengthening the epidermis and spurring cell renewal. I find it does wonders for my dry, flaky forehead. No more flakes, in fact no dryness at all – and no oiliness or blemishes either.

I really like that the Dove DermaSeries Overnight Face Cream is fragrance and paraben-free. Anyone with dry skin is going to have sensitive skin, so the last thing you’ll need are irritating ingredients. This moisturizer is nothing but soothing loveliness for skin. In fact, I don’t just use it on my face.  I use it on my neck, decolletage, and I also think it’s an amazing overnight hand treatment!

You can find the Dove DermaSeries Overnight Face Cream and other Dove products at major drug stores like Target.  And never feel guilty about sleeping in – it’s good for you!  – Lisa

The face of micellar water is changing thanks to Bioré

Bioré Charcoal and Baking Soda Cleansing Micellar Waters

As someone who uses a Micellar Water daily I was eager to try the latest from Bioré. Not only have they come out with their own take but with two different formulas there’s something for everyone. The best part too is that these are easy to find in your local drugstore, Target or Walmart and they are only $6.49 for a 10 oz. bottle.

Bioré Charcoal and Baking Soda Cleansing Micellar Waters

samples

There are two different ways I use Micellar Water. In the evening I usually use it as part of a two step cleansing process. If my foundation is heavier than usual I’ll use some on a cotton pad to remove the majority of it and then follow with my cleanser. Or I’ll cleanse first and use the Micellar Water after to neutralize my skin and make sure I get off any residue that might not have been picked up before.

Bioré Baking Soda Cleansing Micellar Water

In the morning I’ll often just use Micellar Water alone to remove the lotions and potions I used the night before so I can start with a clean slate.

Bioré Baking Soda Cleansing Micellar Water

With both of these ways Bioré fits in perfectly. I have normal to dry skin so I’m using Bioré Baking Soda Cleansing Micellar Water. In the summer I expect I’ll use the Bioré Charcoal Cleansing Micellar Water more. That one is meant for oily skin and I notice when I am super hot that my face will feel more oily.

Bioré Charcoal Cleansing Micellar Water

Bioré Charcoal Cleansing Micellar Water

The way these two work is the same. There’s no difference between them except for ingredients to help your skin have its best match. They both have a light fragrance but I find that the Charcoal has a little stronger scent and lasts somewhat longer. Once I apply my complexion products that’s the last of any fragrance.

The next time you are looking for a Micellar Water to help with cleansing let Bioré jump in your shopping cart. I think you’ll enjoy everything about Bioré Micellar Waters.  —  Marcia

April favorites with KBShimmer polish, The Avocado Green mattress, and Thrive Causesmetics

I have several items, whether sent by a PR company or purchased myself, that I’m ready to rave about. Hopefully these items are things you’ve wondered about or wanted. Maybe you’ll learn about something new that you just didn’t know you needed!!

Avocado Green Mattress

Let me start with our new mattress, Avocado Green Mattress. I have to tell you that this wasn’t my idea and that my husband had to convince me. It all started with reviews in Consumers Report and from there it ended up in my bedroom. I was sure that it wouldn’t be comfortable and that we would be sorry to see our old mattress go. But it’s proving to be a pleasant buy. It wasn’t cheap for a King Size mattress with a pillow top (Euro pillow-top with 2 additional inches of plush natural latex for added pressure relief & eco-luxury,permanently attached) though. Neither my husband nor I have been waking up with a sore back. I’ve only had insomnia one night since using it and it had nothing to do with the mattress since I knew within a minute of laying down that I just wasn’t going to fall asleep.

Our natural mattress features 100% natural latex rubber, GOTS organic certified wool, GOTS organic certified cotton and up to 1,414 pocketed support coils. No polyester, polyurethane foams or toxic fire retardants are used. Or explore our Vegan Mattress made without wool.

There’s a 100 night sleep guarantee but we don’t think we’re going to need that warranty. If you’ve wavered about a Bed in a Box like I did then you might be just as surprised. It’s great to realize that we have something that’s not bad for the environment too.

Thrive Causematics lipliner and liquid lipstick

THRIVE CAUSEMATICS is a brand that is basically new to me. I had previously used their eyebrow pencil which I thought was outstanding but that particular one has been discontinued and I’ve ordered their new one to compare. What I did buy that I’m happy with is their Matte Legacy Lipstick and Liner Set in Kaisa and Em. I really just wanted the Em lipliner since the color is what I dream about but rather than pay shipping I decided to try their liquid lipstick too. (I’m crazy like that.)

Em Lipliner and Kaisa Matte Legacy Liquid Lipstick

The lipliner shade is a blush pink and I love it. I’ll wear it alone or with a lot of the other lipsticks I have. The Legacy Liquid Lipstick in Kaisa is a blush mauve that’s a little bit darker on my lips than I was hoping for.

Thrive Kaisa Liquid Lipstick

I’ll write more about Thrive Causemetics in the future when I get my new order but I am excited to talk about the mission of the brand. Every time you buy from Thrive you are donating a product to other women who need help to thrive in their own lives. So the money you spend is doing double duty – one for you and one for someone worthwhile. They are a vegan, cruelty-free brand that you can feel great about.

KBShimmer Wander-ful World

Bringing beauty to my life is KBShimmer. I haven’t written about the brand in a long time but I have several of their permanent collection polishes you will love as much as I do. The very first brand I ever bought a holographic polish from was KBShimmer and it’s remained a favorite.

KBShimmer Wander-ful World

KBShimmer Wander-ful World

sample

Wander-ful World is a linear holographic shade with micro size glitter and a medium glitter load. It’s stunning and perfect for spring (or any time). It’s an electric magenta that is a stand out but it’s not going to get you arrested by the glitter police. It’s subtle actually. The colors you see in the bottle are what you’ll see on your nails. Don’t be surprised if people grab your hand to check out this 100% vegan and cruelty free delight.

Would you add any of these to your favorite list? —  Marcia

Skin Actives Collagen Serum is keeping our skin from aging

We’re sure you’ve heard the expression “they’re the same but different”. My (Marcia) father used to tease me about saying this. But I think he’d agree with me today about Skin Actives Scientific Collagen Serum. Lisa and I have the same product to share with you yet they are different. There is a Vegan and a Regular formula to this serum that contains EGF (epidermal growth factor) hyaluronic acid and sea kelp bioferment. All of the ingredients prevent collagen breakdown, reducing the appearance of fine lines/wrinkles & improving overall tone and texture.

Skin Actives Scientific Collagen Serum was developed by skin care scientist Dr. Hannah Sivak, PhD to help prevent aging. This is part of Skin Active’s Ageless Collection and created to promote the synthesis of collagen in the skin. Research indicates that aging decreases skin thickness and elasticity, pointing to collagen as a solution. Skin Actives Scientific is a cruelty free brand.

MARCIA IS USING THE VEGAN FORMULA OF SKIN ACTIVES SCIENTIFIC COLLAGEN SERUM

Skin Actives Scientific Collagen Serum

When the two bottles of Collagen Serum arrived I chose the Vegan formula mainly because I couldn’t smell anything that would irritate my sensitive nose. I’ll find out, along with you, whether or not the Regular formula has any fragrance.

This is a very easy serum for me to use. It’s very liquidy and I don’t need a lot. After applying I allow it to dry for a few minutes and often use another serum over it. I started by using the collagen serum alone to see how my skin would react to it and once I was confident with it, I knew I could layer it with another serum.

Skin Actives Scientific Collagen Serum

The purpose of this Skin Actives serum in my routine is to add collagen, an ingredient I hadn’t paid attention to prior to the use of Skin Actives Scientific Collagen Serum. I’ve been using it for over a month and notice that the overall tone and texture of my skin is improving. It’s made me more confident to go out without foundation. I now feel good about using CoTZ lightly tinted sunscreen moisturizer without covering it up.

If we care about slowing down and reversing skin aging, we need to care about collagen too. Because it’s such a major constituent of the skin, the objective is to stimulate its synthesis, and preserve the collagen protein in an active, organized structure.

Skin Actives Scientific Collagen Serum, Vegan

Why do I like this? Well I’ve already made it obvious that the fact that it’s fragrance-free matters to me. But I’m thrilled that it also contains hyaluronic acid. That along with sea kelp bioferment help with moisturization and help with my desire to have skin that’s not as dry and definitely not aged. I think I need to use this longer to see more results but what I’ve seen so far is perfect – exactly what I want and expect my skin to look like. I have no wrinkles, I have a few fine lines, and most importantly my skin looks healthy. And Skin Actives Scientific Collagen Serum has this vegan rendition which makes me feel even better about what is being applied to my skin. The vegan one is only available in the 1 oz. size ($20) and is a product I plan to continue using.

Skin Actives Scientific Collagen Serum

LISA IS USING THE REGULAR FORMULA OF SKIN ACTIVES SCIENTIFIC COLLAGEN SERUM

I’m a big believer in collagen serums. Our skin collagen decreases by about 1% every year and by my age those are stats that have really added up! Collagen serums are great for slowing down skin aging, although while I like what they do for my skin I also usually find them to be pretty sticky, so I am not good about using them. The Skin Actives Scientific Collagen Serum has an excellent texture. It’s thin and it soaks in quickly, leaving skin perfectly smooth and soft. Like Marcia said, it’s great for mixing or layering with other serums and it doesn’t affect the texture of them.

Skin Actives Scientific Collagen Serum

Skin Actives Scientific Collagen Serum

I know that Marcia chose the vegan formula to avoid any fragrance, but interestingly the regular formula has absolutely no fragrance. I mean NONE. Everything in this serum complements and helps support my other skin treatments, and does all the things I want from my treatments – reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, plus an improvement in skin tone and skin texture.

A few other benefits of Skin Actives Scientific Collagen Serum – it can be used on stretch marks and acne scars, and it is appropriate for all skin types from dry to oily. The regular version comes in the 1 oz size for $18, as well as a 4 oz size for $61.

Whether you prefer the Vegan version or the Regular version, Skin Actives Scientific Collagen Serum gets a soft, silky, fragrance-free thumbs up from us.
