Keeping it clean with hand mixed artisan soaps from Soapcreek Company

There is something really special about a company that is dedicated to the health of our planet and Soapcreek Company is one of those wonderful lines that has exquisite products that are all natural, made with the best ingredients, and done with an artistic flair. Everything is made by hand without any synthetic fragrances, dyes or  harsh chemicals and their packaging is all from renewable sources.

Soapcreek Company has a lot more than soap, but soap is what I am going to review today. Their hand mixed and poured Artisan soap is incredible. It’s gorgeous and it’s actually better than the soap you buy at the store because they don’t remove the glycerin from their food grade oils before making their soap, which is something that happens in the modern soap making businesses. Retaining this glycerin makes their soap even richer and better for your skin.They also use olive, coconut, and ricebran oils which make for an amazing lather, as well as aromatherapy in their soaps. All together it makes for an incredible bathing experience.

Right now I count 22 varieties of Artisan soap on Soapcreek Company’s website. I tested two of them, Lime Splice and Lavender Honey.

Soapcreek Lime Splice Artisan Soap

Lime Splice Artisan Soap ($9.99) is a big, thick bar of “Refreshing Lime, Yogurt, and Aloe with a bit of spice from black pepper essential oil, and a touch of poppy seed for exfoliation make an awesome spa experience.” It smells exactly like you would want a spa experience to smell – with this in your shower, you are instantly transported into calm relaxation.

Soapcreek Lime Splice Artisan Soap

Lime Splice is especially good for dry skin that is flaky because it lathers up with tons of hydration thanks to the aloe vera that is so healing, plus the yogurt that has lactic acid for renewing skin and the poppy seed for exfoliating. The essential oils work overtime too – the lime helps to tone skin, and the black pepper soothes aches and pains. The Bay is what gives that calming feeling. This is a beautiful bar that is marvelous for any shower in your house and would make a very welcome gift.

Soapcreek Lavender Honey Artisan Soap

Lavender Honey Artisan Soap ($9.99) is actually two different kinds of soap in one lovely bar. The top layer is Aloe and French Clay for soothing skin, and the bottom layer is Raw Honey for moisturizing. I’m sure it’s no surprise that this bar smells of beautiful lavender – but it also has a note of citrus that gives it a bit of a twist.

Soapcreek Lavender Honey Artisan Soap

The Lavender Honey Artisan Soap is one of Soapcreek Company’s best sellers and I am not surprised.  This bar is for all skin types and has a splendid lather. The French Clay is a great cleanser and the raw honey helps skin retain moisture. The aloe vera is very soothing to the skin. Plus the essential oils in this bar are great – the Clary Sage is a wonderful antioxidant and is excellent for skin. Litsea Cubeba helps to control sebum and of course Lavender is so relaxing.

I love these soaps! I know you will too – and there are 20 more types to choose from with all different kinds of purposes, like Lightning Mist for shaving and Jamaican Cream for neutralizing onion, garlic, and fish odors from your hands in the kitchen.

The buzz on CBD Living

CBD Living products

What is CBD? Right now you are reading a lot about CBD but knowing exactly what it is and what it does is what this is all about. One thing for sure is that you’ll hear more and more about CBD in products. It’s holding reign and growing. It’s a good antioxidant that can help protect against free radical damage to skin cells.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring compound found in the resinous flower of cannabis, a plant with a rich history as a medicine going back thousands of years. Today the therapeutic properties of CBD are being tested and confirmed by scientists and doctors around the world. A safe, non-addictive substance, CBD is one of more than a hundred “phytocannabinoids,” which are unique to cannabis and endow the plant with its robust therapeutic profile.

CBD is closely related to another important medicinally active phytocannabinoid: tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the compound that causes the high that cannabis is famous for. These are the two components of cannabis that have been most studied by scientists.

Both CBD and THC have significant therapeutic attributes. But unlike THC, CBD does not make a person feel “stoned” or intoxicated. That’s because CBD and THC act in different ways on different receptors in the brain and body.

from ProjectCBD.org

That’s a synopsis taken from Project CBD. It’s just the beginning though of everything there is to know about CBD. One of the important things to take away from this is that it’s a safe, non-addictive substance and won’t make you feel “buzzed”.

CBD Living

I was sent three of the products that CBD Living has created to test and share with you. The one I’m using on a daily basis is CBD LIVING LOTION. This is available in three scents: invigorating eucalyptus, relaxing lavender and unscented for those with sensitive skin. Those of you who read Beauty Info Zone on a regular basis know that I chose Unscented.

CBD Living Lotion

When you buy a product claiming to have CBD as an ingredient you want to make sure that it’s a legit company that is selling you what it claims to sell you. Bogus companies will pop up everywhere since the ingredient is so hot. CBD Living is a global CBD manufacturer and distributor and one that can be trusted. “First established in 2013 and headquartered in Corona, California, CBD Living has a global reach for our products through our vast distribution in stores all over the world. Our products are organically grown in Colorado at a state-licensed hemp farm and extraction facility.” The company even shows the veracity of their products in charts about their test results.

CBD LIVING LOTION is a large pump bottle (16 oz) that contains 250 mg of nano-CBD that was grown in Colorado and is 100% organic as well as vegan and cruelty-free. The lotion has healing properties for dry skin. CBD Lotion is absorbed through the skin and into the bloodstream, providing your daily dose of CBD. It is great for relaxing after a long day or invigorating the senses and treating dry skin.

CBD Living Lotion

The Unscented is truly unscented which I don’t find in every “unscented” product that I try. That means I don’t have to just leave it for below the waist use. I use it on my whole body knowing that I’m not going to regret it during the day. I’ve started using it on my hands too since they are particularly dry. I’m a leftie and my pointer finger gets almost callused. The lotion is very light in texture and absorbs immediately. I don’t have to worry about it when typing or reading. It’s on my hand and working to treat the cause of the dryness.

CBD Living Lotion

It’s a wonderful product for itchy skin and when my husband is around after my shower I’ll ask him to massage it onto my itchy back and he doesn’t even mind. Of course there’s also lavender and eucalyptus for those of you who enjoy scents.

CBD LIVING makes a huge variety of products including edibles, pet capsules, tinctures and more topical products. I have the CBD Living Soap and CBD Living Bath Bomb too.

CBD Living Soap in Eucalyptus

CBD Living Soap is available in four invigorating scents.

  • Eucalyptus Scented Soap
  • Coconut Lime Scented Soap
  • Amber Bergamot Scented Soap
  • Lavender Scented Soap

They are $14 each. These soaps infuse coconut oil, terpenes and CBD for a rich and luxurious shower experience. CBD in this soap is absorbed through the skin and into the bloodstream and will leave your skin feeling soft and smooth. The Eucalyptus has a mild almost spearmint fragrance to it, next I’d like to try coconut lime.

CBD Living Soap

The bar has a creamy feel to it once you lather up with it and the soothing effect lasts for 8 to 12 hours. It feels refreshing to use this in my shower. Hemp Oil extracts are used in the processing of these and all topicals from CBD Living.

CBD Living Bath Bomb in Amber Bergamot

The CBD Bath Bomb is not some light fluffy thing. The bomb is like a bomb! It’s heavy and dissolves in water. Drop it in a bath of warm water and let it dissolve. I believe you can get several baths from one bomb ($14).

Why use this when a regular bath bomb is half the price?
CBD Bath Bombs are absorbed through the skin and into the bloodstream, providing your daily dose of CBD. They are great for relaxing after a long day or invigorating the senses with a warm morning bath. They’ll leave your skin feeling softer.

Suitable for all skin types, including:

  • Dry skin
  • Irritated skin
  • Normal skin
  • Oily or acne-prone skin

    CBD Living Bath Bomb in Amber Bergamot

Of all the products I believe this is the most effective for relieving the pains you are seeking relief from as well as providing a long term residual feeling.

CBD Living’s products are all lab tested and go through a rigorous quality assurance process. Each product is tested thoroughly before it is placed on the shelf. “Our products are not made with harsh chemicals and will not irritate the skin.”

I suggest you consider this line when you are looking to expand your horizons. We laugh a little at the thought of CBD but it really has a lot of wonderful benefits.  —  Marcia

GIVEAWAY ALERT! Chasing perfection with the Eddie Funkhouser Highlight and Contour Palette

Eddie Funkhouser Highlight and Contour Palette

Wish you had better cheekbones? A more refined nose? A little more – or a little less – chin? A great highlighting and contouring palette can be your best friend, and Eddie Funkhouser has a wonderfully unique option with his HIGHLIGHT & CONTOUR PALETTE ($32.99). It’s different from most contouring palettes and you have an opportunity to win one of these lovelies for yourself with our giveaway!

sample, affiliate links

Eddie Funkhouser Highlight and Contour Palette

The Eddie Funkhouser Highlight & Contour Palette is one of the best I’ve used for several reasons. It’s different from others because it has both creme and powder highlighters and contours that mimic light and shadows, making it incredibly versatile. In addition, there is a setting powder and a finishing powder with micro-shimmer to brighten your complexion. It’s just a beautiful mix of shades that are so easy to use and tons of fun to play with.It comes in two shades – Light to Light/Medium (pictured), and the slightly deeper version, Medium to Tan.

There are three cremes and three powders in the palette:

Eddie Funkhouser Highlight and Contour Palette Highlighting Creme

The Highlighting Creme is a full coverage creme that adds brightness and light to the face.  You place this mid- forehead, straight down the middle of the nose, and on the tops of the cheeks.

Eddie Funkhouser Highlight and Contour Palette Contouring Creme

The Contouring Creme is the darkest creme that gives the big contours and shadows, giving more definition.  You place it under cheekbones, on the sides of the nose, and under the chin to minimize any sagging.

Eddie Funkhouser Highlight and Contour Palette Soft Bronzing Creme

The Soft Bronzing Creme is a contour, but it’s a more subtle one that balances out the complexion.  You place this mid cheekbone and on the outer portion of the forehead.

Eddie Funkhouser Highlight and Contour Palette Setting Powder

The Setting Powder is a lightweight translucent pressed powder. This goes over the cremes to set them and keep them intact throughout the day. Eddie also recommends using it for ‘baking’, which is done after applying cream concealer. You press a generous amount of the setting powder on top of the concealer and let it set or ‘bake’ for 10 minutes. Then, take a big fluffy brush and sweep the excess away. Your baked concealer will last all day and won’t crease.

Eddie Funkhouser Highlight and Contour Palette Contouring Powder

The Contouring Powder deepens your contours and sets the Contouring Creme. You place this under cheekbones, on the outer portion of your forehead, and down the sides of your nose.

Eddie Funkhouser Highlight and Contour Palette Glow Powder

The Glow Powder is a highlighting powder that illuminates and gives the high points of the face a beautiful glow.

The back of the palette has a very helpful illustration that shows the proper placement of each creme and powder.

Eddie has excellent advice for application which I follow and it makes a huge difference. I love the ‘bake’ technique, which has made a big difference for me – no more surprises halfway though the day, looking in the mirror and seeing concealer-filled wrinkles. Yuck.

  1.  Following the application of liquid or creme foundation, apply Highlighting and Contouring Creme to    the specific areas of the face notated on the back of the palette.
  2.  Using the Setting Powder, set the Highlighting Creme
  3.  Using the Contouring Powder, set the Contouring Creme
  4.  Apply a liquid or cream concealer of your choice to the under eye area. Bake the concealer using the Setting Powder for a long wearing crease free finish. To “bake”, Press a generous amount of setting powder into your concealer. Allow setting powder to sit for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, using a fluffy brush, sweep away excess powder.
  5. Apply Finishing (“Glow”) Powder to high points of cheekbones, bridge and tip of nose, edge of cupids bow and tip of chin.

I have to admit that I don’t have time every day to highlight and contour, but on the days that I do it makes a huge difference and I look and feel my best. The Highlight & Contour Palette by Eddie Funkhouser has everything you need for balanced perfection that lasts all day – what more could you ask for? A free one, I guess!! – Lisa

Sensible luxury and glycolic acid skin care that works! GlyDerm® review

Skin care is a very personal thing.  For example, my blog partner Marcia and I have extremely different approaches to taking care of our skin.  Marcia is laid back – she goes into her skin products very slowly and likes gentle, easy ingredients.  Me?  I love to try anything new, and I am all for retinols, AHA’s and glycolic acid.  I’ve paid the price for my more gonzo approach with some reddened and peeling skin at times.  That’s why I’m pretty excited about GlyDerm® , which features glycolic acid but in a gentle yet still effective way (and it’s affordable, too!).

samples affiliate links

Glycolic acid reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles, plus it reduces the size of your pores and evens out skin tone.  Glycolic acid dissolves dead skin cells and promotes new skin.  The glycolic acid comes from sugar cane, and it’s the smallest alpha hydroxy molecule.  It is an extremely effective skin care ingredient, but it can also be irritating to skin.  What GlyDerm does differently is it uses esterified glycolic acid, which allows the glycolic acid to have a time-released delivery into the skin, so it’s gentle but still fully potent.  Their skin care products do terrific things:

  • Leaves skin looking and feeling smooth and supple
  • Provides a bright, radiant complexion
  • Improves the appearance of skin damage caused by photoaging
  • Increases hydration from within resulting in plumper,
    firmer-looking skin
  • Formulated to help patients who are prone to mild to moderate acne
  • Improves the appearance of pore size
  • Reduces the appearance of unsightly bumps and ingrown hairs associated with shaving

I tested three different GlyDerm products, and here are my thoughts:

GlyDerm Gentle Face Cleanser

Gentle Face Cleanser ($28)  This is a 0.2% glycolic acid facial cleanser that doesn’t have any soap in it.  It’s a very gentle cleanser, and the small percentage of glycolic acid smooths out skin and helps to brighten it up over time.  If you wear a full face of makeup, you will want to either first use a makeup remover or else wash your face twice with this cleanser, because it isn’t really a heavy-duty makeup remover.  I double cleanse so for me it isn’t an issue.

GlyDerm Gentle Face Cleanser

The cleanser is creamy and it doesn’t foam much.  It has absolutely no scent or fragrance, and those of you with redness will love how it doesn’t exacerbate that, and in fact lessens red tones.  It’s great for anyone with rosacea as well.  It helps to reduce pore size and congestion, and it leaves my skin feeling soft, clean, and lovely.  This is a cleanser that gets better and better results over time, so while you will enjoy clean skin each day, you will really love what it does for your skin after one or two months.  Stick with it.

Glyderm Face Lotion Lite 5

Face Lotion Lite 5 ($37)  This is an exfoliating lotion featuring glycolic acid that also hydrates skin while dissolving dead skin cells.  It reduces fine lines, evens out hyperpigmentation, and minimizes pore size.  I tested the 5% glycolic acid strength, but it also comes in a 10% strength.  This particular product is for normal to oily skin – they have other products for dry skin and for very oily skin.  After washing your face and drying it, you shake this up to make sure the ingredients are properly distributed, then apply a thin layer – I put it on my face, neck, and decolletage.  I started off only using it at night for two weeks, then I went to morning and night for even better results.

Glyderm Face Lotion Lite 5

Glyderm Face Lotion Lite 5

It does tingle at first when applied, very slightly and it doesn’t hurt at all.  My skin never peeled or got flaky – in fact, it only got softer because the Face Lotion Lite both exfoliates and hydrates.  I am loving my results!  My skin tone is getting more and more even, my pores are tightening up, and I am having far less issues with breakouts.  I want to move to the 10% because I think my skin can definitely tolerate it.

GlyDerm Hydrotone Lite

Hydrotone Lite ($39) is a moisturizer that is great for combination skin, aging skin, and anyone with large pores.  It is a thick cream that has an interesting texture – it’s light and emollient, and you don’t need much to moisturize your face and neck.  The jar looks small, it’s 1.5 ounces, but it lasts for a long time because you truly don’t a lot of it.  It’s what skin needs after being exfoliated to speed up the healing process.  In addition, it also has lemon extract, which serves to brighten the skin and even skin tone, as well as reduce pore size.

GlyDerm Hydrotone Lite

GlyDerm Hydrotone Lite

I like how Hydrotone Lite isn’t the least bit greasy.  Most moisturizers that are meant for use after glycolic products leave your face pretty slick, but this doesn’t…it’s got a strange initial texture that sort of transforms from a paste into something light and airy.  Very odd.  It is also great to use before applying makeup and doesn’t interfere with application at all.  Another plus – it calms down that pesky t-zone so my nose is much less oily and shiny during the day.

GlyDerm has quite a few other products that look extremely interesting.  The Hydrating Eye Cream features Vitamin K to tackle dark undereye circles, an ingredient I have found to be very effective in the past.  The Face Solution is an astringent for congested skin, and it features a combination of salicylic acid and glycolic acid to enhance exfoliation and open clogged pores, and it comes in three different strengths – 5%, 10% or 12%.  I think my oily t-zone needs some of that.

Overall, I am really impressed – GlyDerm is definitely sensible luxury with the best ingredients at their maximum effectiveness.  You can find GlyDerm at dermatologist and physician offices, as well as online at dermstore.com and skinstore.com.  – Lisa

Derma E Facial Wipes do the trick

Derma E Hydrating Micellar Facial Wipes and Vitamin C Brightening Micellar Facial Wipes

I’ve been a fan of Derma E’s facial wipes, Hydrating Micellar Cleansing Wipes, for a while. Several of the blogs I read raved about the original wipes which contain hyaluronic acid and don’t have a fragrance so of course I bought them to try out and have continued to buy them.

written by Beauty Info Zone, if found elsewhere it’s been taken illegally

Derma E has now come out with a second type of wipe and I’ve been even more excited about using these than the original. Vitamin C Brightening Micellar Wipes have everything I want in a wipe these days. I have been finding that Vitamin C is an excellent ingredient for my skin so I’m been thrilled that Derma E sent them my way.

Now it’s time to see which Derma E Micellar Wipe would fit your lifestyle best. Both are meant to do the same thing: cleanse your face of dirt and impurities as well as makeup. They both do a great job of that. Great news is that each wipe is 100% compostable and all outer packaging is 100% recyclable. Hypoallergenic, dermatologist tested and sensitivity tested.

Derma E Hydrating Micellar Cleansing wipes come in a package of 25 and are $7.99 on their website and $6.07 on Amazon. The size of the actual wipe is a little smaller than the Vitamin C ones.

Derma E Hydrating Micellar Wipes

Why I’ve enjoyed using these is that the fragrance is very light, though not fragrance free. It’s just a fresh scent that doesn’t keep me up at night. The wipes are infused with Hyaluronic Acid to help condition, soften and smooth skin. As an HA afficionado that’s what attracted me to these one-step wipes. They also contain superfruit extracts Grape Seed and Maqui Berry that offer anti-oxidant protection. These are extremely soft and non-irritating.

Derma E Hydrating Micellar Facial Wipes

Ingredients Purified Water, Betaine (Plant Derived), Ethylhexyl Stearate, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Extract, Aristotelia Chinensis (Maqui Berry) Fruit Juice, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract, Carya Ovata (Shagbark Hickory) Bark Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate (Hyaluronic Acid), Gossypium Herbaceum (Cotton) Seed Oil, Glycerin (Vegetable Derived), Polyglyceryl-4 Laurate, Sorbitan Laurate, Dilauryl Citrate, Citric Acid, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Fragrance, Alpha Isomethyl Ionone, Benzyl Alcohol, Benzyl Salicylate, Hydroxycitronellal, Linalool.

Derma E Vitamin C Brightening Micellar Wipes contain 30 wipes for only $1 more. (Avoid the much higher price at Amazon.) These pre-moistened wipes contain micellar water which is one of my favorite cleaning agents. I like to use micellar water especially in the morning to remove last night’s skincare. The technology used gently lifts off the dirt and residue and leaves your skin properly balanced.

Derma E Vitamin C Brightening Micellar Wipes

Derma E uses a stable form of Vitamin C that won’t evaporate or alter before absorbing into your skin, to work better for you. Anti-aging Probiotics and antioxidant-rich Rooibos help skin to appear brighter and replenished.

Derma E Vitamin C Brightening Micellar Wipes

The difference between these two in use is that Vitamin C helps brighten your skin. If you have sun damage, sun spots or redness that’s not from rosacea you’ll enjoy the brightening effect that these have over time. The Vitamin C Brightening Micellar Wipes have a very refreshing light lemon smell. This isn’t a sweet lemon or an artificial one. The fragrance doesn’t linger at all either.

Derma E Vitamin C Brightening Micellar Wipes

These are also enriched with:

Hyaluronic Acid also known as natures moisture magnet, delivers intense moisture, infusing skin with healthy hydration.

Grape Seed Extract helps to reduce free radical damage and keep skin hydrated for a soft, smooth texture.

Maqui Berry Extract is rich in antioxidants that help to reduce the signs of premature aging.

Licorice Extract and Vitamin B3

Ingredients: Purified Water, Polysorbate 20, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Aminopropyl Ascorbyl Phosphate (Vitamin C), Sodium PCA, Niacinamide, Phytic Acid, Sorbitol, Caprylyl/Capryl Glucoside, Ethylhexylglycerin, Sodium Citrate, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Phenoxyethanol, Natural Fragrance Oils.

Many people are able to use these wipes for eye makeup removal but that’s not the case for me. It removes eyeshadow well but they aren’t wet enough to remove my mascara and eyeliner so I use a dedicated eye makeup remover instead. But the wipes do remove all traces of face makeup leaving no residue behind.

Derma E Vitamin C Brightening Micellar Wipes

While I like them both it’s the Derma E Vitamin C Brightening Micellar Wipes that I’m going to stick with after these two packages are empty. Which one do you think you’d like best?  —  Marcia
