My shower oasis with Scalisi Cleanser and AfterSpa plus a giveaway

Scalisi Cleanser and Exfoliator and afterspa body scrub

Scalisi Cleanser and Exfoliator and afterspa body scrub

Several days a week I get a little extra shower time and when I do I’m always thrilled to relax a bit and use some favorite products. Two that I’ve been using are *SCALISI SKINCARE CLEANSER AND EXFOLIATOR and *AFTERSPA BODY SCRUB in Macadamia-Coconut. Both of these have the most marvelous textures and make me smooth from head to toe.

Scalisi Cleanser and Exfoliator

Scalisi’s Cleanser and Exfoliator is one of the most gentle exfoliating products that I’ve used. This doesn’t strip my skin of natural oils but it does gently exfoliate the dead skin cells with tiny micro-beads. It contains jojoba, macadamia nut and sunflower oils which help moisturize so that I leave my shower with cleansed skin that feels great. It also contains time released vitamins A, C and E to give my face antioxidant protection and extra nourishment.

This is gentle enough to use daily and even twice a day. I find it doesn’t take extra effort to remove the microbeads from my face which happens with a heavy exfoliant. I keep it in my shower and use it at least 5 days a week but for sure on my “spa” days. I massage it onto my face and inhale deeply. The fragrance is minimal but the results are maximum.

AFTERSPA BODY SCRUB (MACADAMIA-COCONUT)

afterspa body scrub

AfterSpa body scrub

AfterSpa is a brand new company that is under the umbrella of Daily Concepts. There are only a few products that are in creation and I was lucky enough to be sent two of them. There are two scents that their products will be available in Macadamia-Coconut and Honey-Mint. Happily I received Macadamia-Coconut and I love the mild yet intoxicating fragrance of it. It doesn’t interfere with any other product you put on after your shower but I wish it lingered longer (and that’s coming from a fragrance-phobe).

AfterSpa body scrub

This very gentle and nourishing body scrub has the most unusual texture. It’s silky looking and feeling. With some shower scrubs I have a hard time removing it all if I forget to put a washcloth or shower scrubby in the shower. But AfterSpa doesn’t give me that problem nor does it get my shower floor slippery. I really love the feel of this and how perfectly and gently it exfoliates my body.

There’s only one bad thing about AfterSpa — it’s hard to find. At the current time it’s only sold at Ross stores, not online. I sure hope that gets corrected soon. But if you are a Ross shopper, be sure to check out all their special products knowing it’s made by an eco-friendly company that is keeping the consumer cost under control just like other Daily Concept products.  — Marcia

Why I love Lindi Skin and a giveaway so you can too

Lindi Skin collection

Lindi Skin collection

I try a lot of skincare brands but none of them is like LINDI SKIN. The 4 products I was sent to test are remarkable and unusual, all in a great way. The line is unlike anything I’ve tried and I’m so delighted with it that I begged asked the brand to do a givaway for one of you.

LINDI SKIN has a variety of skincare that is meant to be a solution to problems. Their products were created to soothe skin especially to relieve the effects of radiation, chemotherapy, and day-to-day wear resulting from cancer treatments. The brand goes beyond cancer patients though as I’ve seen in my own use. It’s for anyone.

The 4 products I have are the Lindi Face Wash ($22), Lindi Citrus Face Serum ($36), Lindi Eye Hydrator ($30), and Lindi Lip Balm ($10).

LINDI FACE WASH

Lindi Skin Face Wash

Lindi Skin Face Wash

Lindi Fash Wash is a liquid cleanser that is meant to both clarify and hydrate. It doesn’t strip my skin but I do need moisturizing after using it. This is a very effective and gentle cleanser that removes makeup and grim with ease. It’s the basis for getting your skin ready for more.

LINDI CITRUS FACE SERUM

Lindi Citrus Face Serum

Lindi Citrus Face Serum

The Citrus Face Serum is my very favorite of the products I am using. I’m in love with this. It’s thicker than any serum I own and it’s luxurious feeling on my skin. It was created to both soothe and revitalize skin and it does that to my skin.

I find it a little too thick to use under makeup but I adore it as my night time serum. The feel is amazing. This comes in two scents, lavender and citrus. The citrus is just a hint of a wonderful scent and dissipates quickly.

Lindi Facial Serum

Lindi Facial Serum

Here’s what Lindi says about this: “Formulated with the highest concentration of our proprietary LSA Complex ®, replete with botanicals, antioxidants and vitamins, this serum provides beneficial moisture and ultimate comfort to compromised skin on the face, neck, chest, back and scalp. The unique non-oily formula glides on silky-smooth and begins restoring immediately. The Serum has been clinically proven to reduce the facial rash, redness and itching that are a common side-effect of some types of chemotherapy.  It’s gentle soothing nutrients also make it great for anyone who wants healthy skin.”

Lindi Facial Serum

Lindi Facial Serum

I wish I was able to adequately explain how soothing and wonderful this feels on my skin. The first time I used it I was a little surprised because it felt so different than anything I’ve used. Now I never want to let it go. I use this either with my fingers or the wonderful JeNu Ultrasound Infuser and it’s made my skin smoother than ever. A+++

LINDI EYE HYDRATOR

Lindi Eye Hydrator

Lindi Eye Hydrator

I make no secret about my love for eye creams and eye treatments and Lindi Eye Hydrator is one of these loves. The Eye Hydrator too is totally different than anything I’ve tried. It comes in a small glass jar and feels and looks like silky honey. It’s not sticky at all though. It makes the area under my eyes so smooth while hydrating it too.

 

Lindi Eye Hydrator

Lindi Eye Hydrator

This is a nutrient rich gel that also helps with undereye puffiness and works to improve the look of your skin. What I have on my finger above it enough for 2 full days. I just need a dab of it. I use a small plastic facial spatula since I don’t want to use my fingers to get this out. I know people complain constantly about jars but this seems to be the best packaging for this silky gel. I love the effect of this and use it at least once a day.

LINDI LIP BALM

Lindi Lip Balm

Lindi Lip Balm

I wanted to hate the Lindi Lip Balm because of the packaging. I have long fingernails so I can’t easily dip into a little pot like this. But I can’t hate it and still use it every night before bed, can I? The lip balm is soft yet firm. I keep a covered lip brush right next to it so that I can slather this on before I pop into bed. Even when I wake up during the night I can feel how soft my lips feel and that it’s still working. It’s also a great cuticle cream that I like to use just before bed.

As you can see, I’m very impressed with the effects of Lindi Skin. It’s good for us and it’s even more wonderful for people with serious dry skin issues because of cancer and radiation along with a slew of other illnesses. I will continue to use the Face Serum and Eye Hydrator long after these 4 items are used up. — Marcia

LATHER teaches a lesson in good salesmanship and products

LATHER Skincare has done something that I wish all skincare companies would follow. Lather has full lines of skincare with wonderful products but one thing they do that makes them stand out from the rest is that they sell skincare kits. These kits are perfect for traveling and for testing out products to see what works best for you.

Lather About Face Combination Skin Kit

Lather About Face Combination Skin Kit

For $29.00 each LATHER sells 3 kits containing 5 products for different skintypes  – oily, combination and dry. I was sent ABOUT FACE COMBINATION SKIN KIT to test and it made me realize that they are on the ball. This kit contains 5 products all packed and ready for travel. Stick this whole set in a ziploc bag and you are ready to face the airport ‘police’. Products range from 0.5 fl oz to 2 fl oz which fit regulations.

Now I don’t happen to travel all that much so this is a great way for me to test out new products to see if my skin likes them.

Lather kit products

Lather kit products

ULTRA MILD FACE WASH 2 oz. is a clear gel-like cleanser with a mild fresh fragrance. It’s foaming but not overly so. My face feels properly cleansed and refreshed with this. The kit size is 2 oz. and full size is 6 oz ($19). Since I wasn’t sure if the fragrance would be overwhelming in this or other products, this is the perfect way for me to try.

ULTRA MILD FACE WASH

LATHER ULTRA MILD FACE WASH

CITRUS BALANCING TONER smells delightful. I love the smell of citrus and will always choose it when available. It’s not an overwhelming fragrance but it’s so refreshing. This toner is alcohol free and is made to keep the balance in normal to oily skin. It’s to be used after cleansing to remove any excess dirt or oils plus it helps keep the pH balance of your skin. While it’s not a step that everyone takes, the ingredients in this are ones you want to use. For example linoleic acid and lemon bioflavanoids help keep your skin clean and irritation free. It contains Vitamin E for antioxidant protection. Like all Lather products, it’s paraben free. (2 oz kit size, $16 for 6 fl oz)

LATHER CITRUS BALANCING TONER

LATHER CITRUS BALANCING TONER

ULTRA LIGHT FACE LOTION is a very lightweight moisturizer which works for me in warmer weather since that’s when my skin isn’t quite as dry. It’s a botanical lotion that contains special ingredients like borage oil and grapeseed oil which are great for damaged or problem skin. It absorbs quickly and wears well under foundation. I’ve never had balling up using this. My face feels moisturized without any oily finish. Unfortunately it doesn’t have SPF so I have to recommend using a separate sun protection. There’s a tiny bit of botanical fragrance but really nothing to speak of. (full size $21)

LATHER ULTRA LIGHT FACE LOTION

LATHER ULTRA LIGHT FACE LOTION

WHITE CLAY DEEP PORE CLEANSING MASK is a bonus to me in this kind of kit. I get to try it and have it around if I’m traveling. I’ve never owned a travel size mask other than packets that I never use up so I have to toss them. White clay is known for its purification and stimulation. It’s a great mask to exfoliate pores (of which I have many). It’s a gentle mask no matter what type of skin you have. Besides the white clay they use bentonite clay to draw out the oils and impurities even more. I love how my skin looks after using the mask since my pores aren’t as noticeable. (0.5 oz in kit, 4.0 oz full size $22)

LATHER WHITE CLAY DEEP PORE CLEANSING MASK

LATHER WHITE CLAY DEEP PORE CLEANSING MASK

BAMBOO SILK FOAMING FACE SCRUB WITH LEMONGRASS is a clear gel containing bamboo silk and small jojoba beads that are mild, natural exfoliants. I thought that the fragrance of this would bother me but it’s very mild and has an almost sweet citrus fragrance. The exfoliating powder in this makes it another good cleanser to have in your arsenal. It gently foams and washes away well if I use a wash cloth or bamboo cloth. It is both sulfate and paraben free.

LATHER BAMBOO SILK FOAMING FACE SCRUB

LATHER BAMBOO SILK FOAMING FACE SCRUB

All I need to add is SPF and an eye cream and I’m set to go. After trying these I’d be interested in trying out the About Face Dry Skin Kit next winter. My favorite product in the combination kit is the Citrus Balancing Toner but I also like the Bamboo Silk Foaming Face Scrub and White Clay Pore Cleansing Mask.

LATHER About Face Combination Skin Kit

A great way to try an excellent cruelty-free line! Nourish, cleanse, exfoliate your way to better skin with Lather. — Marcia

Anniversary Kleraderm giveaway #2: baskets for skin lightening and sensitive skin

Marcia and I are still having a party to celebrate our five-year anniversary, and today we have another giveaway to help cement our reputations as the Giveaway Queens!  First – did you enter our Kleraderm giveaway for a Purrisima basket (worth $140) for oily skin or an Idroderm basket (worth $175) for dry skin?  No?  Well do that right now!  Click HERE to enter because today is the last day!!

We have two more incredible Kleraderm Skin Care Baskets for today’s anniversary giveaway. Joanne Recchia, the beautiful owner of our favorite Italian skin care line, has designed several giveaway baskets that feature the basics you need for your skin care routine.  The two baskets featured today include an Omorfies basket for those with hyperpigmentation/uneven skin tone, and a Neaderma basket for those with sensitive skin.  Take a look:

Kleraderm Omorfies Giveaway Basket

Kleraderm Omorfies Giveaway Basket

Omorfies Basket (Total Value $176!)  This basket features the Omorfies line, which is a daily clarifying and smoothing treatment regimen that corrects dark spots and uneven skin pigmentation on face, neck, and décolleté.  The origin of the dark spots is a process of overproduction and irregular distribution of pigmented cells and the accumulation of these cells on surface of the skin.

The Kleraderm Omorfies line is a cosmetic solution with fruit acids, vitamins and natural extracts to slow down the production of pigmented cells.  The Omorfies cleanser, toner, and moisturizing cream promote hydration and nourishment while restoring skin’s even complexion.

Kleraderm Omorfies Cleanser

Kleraderm Omorfies Cleanser

Cleansing Milk is a light emulsion with selected cleansing agents to help cleanse and lighten skin without the disruption of skin’s own natural balance.

 

Kleraderm Omorfies Tonic

Kleraderm Omorfies Tonic

Omorfies Tonic Lotion is an alcohol-free toner rich in active properties to soothe, lighten, and refresh skin.

Kleraderm Omorfies Etenia Cream

Kleraderm Omorfies Etenia Cream

Etenia Cream is an elegant daily treatment moisturizer that progressively lightens discolored skin due to aging, acne, and sun exposure. It replenishes hydration and nourishes skin back to its natural balance.  I have terrific success when I use these products, which I turn to when I’ve been out in the sun too much.

Kleraderm Neaderma Giveaway Basket

Kleraderm Neaderma Giveaway Basket

The Neaderma Basket (Total value $ 230!!) includes a selection of products for sensitive skin that help reduce redness and inflammation.

Kleraderm’s Neaderma line is rich in soothing properties that rebuild the skin’s natural barrier and promote microcirculation, relieving skin of irritation and dryness. The water and oil in skin become balanced and broken capillaries become less noticeable. The Neaderma cleanser, toner, and moisturizer soothe, hydrate and nourish skin back to balance.

Kleraderm Neaderma Chamomile Cleansing Milk

Kleraderm Neaderma Chamomile Cleansing Milk

Chamomile Cleansing Milk delicately cleanses skin while replacing its natural balance to help lock in water. This cleanser eliminates impurities, soothes, softens and refreshes skin.  It is also excellent as makeup remover.

Kleraderm Neaderma Chamomile Toner

Kleraderm Neaderma Chamomile Tonic Lotion

 Chamomile Tonic Lotion is an alcohol-free toner rich in active properties to soothe and refresh skin.

Kleraderm Neaderma Vitalize Cream

8 beauty items you need to toss now! Spring Clean Refresh with Meijer Beauty

*sponsored post*

Spring CleaningTime to toss! I am gearing up for some spring cleaning and first on my list is my vanity. Clearing out feels so good…I love it when things are organized and sparkling clean. Besides, extra space means room for new things!
Does your cosmetics stash look like this??

Does your cosmetics stash look like this??

Spring cleaning isn’t just for closets and pantries – it is so important to also tackle that beauty stash. Time goes by fast and before your know it you have beauty items that are years old. Anything you use with your hands or put on your face eventually gathers bacteria and can cause breakouts and other skin issues. Items with active ingredients become inactive over time, becoming an exercise in futility. Besides, it’s fun to go through and edit your cosmetics and skin care, plus what a great opportunity to go shopping to replenish!
If you are like me, the memory fades, so when you purchase a new item mark the date on the bottom of the jar with a black sharpie. It makes spring cleaning much easier. Also, most skin care items have an open jar symbol followed by a number and the letter ‘M’.  This tells you how many months you can use the product after opening it – so 6M means six months after opening, 9M means nine months after opening, etcetera. Don’t forget, when using products packaged in jars NEVER stick your fingers in the jar. Use a small cosmetics spatula to spoon out the product so you aren’t introducing bacteria into the jar.
Here are the top 8 items that you need to toss, along with some suggestions for replacements. Meijer just announced an exciting lineup of new beauty items, so it’s a great place to shop to renew that beauty routine and you can find all of my suggestions there.
L'Oreal Revitalift Volume Filler Serum

L’Oreal Revitalift Volume Filler Serum

1.  Serum:  I am sure this is no surprise. Typically serum is in air tight packaging, which keeps ingredient integrity, but once you start using a serum it’s only good for about six months. Toss it even earlier if the texture changes or it starts to smell weird. If you need to replenish, check out L’Oreal Revitalift Volume Filler.  It is wonderfully affordable and has hyaluronic acid to plump skin and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.

L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Powder Foundation

L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Powder Foundation

2.  Foundation:  obviously, liquid foundation is a bacteria collector, especially jar-based foundation that is exposed to the air. But did you know that powder foundation also goes bad? Think about it…you dip your brush into the foundation, the brush goes on your skin, then you dip that brush back onto the foundation…all those skin oils are transferred into the powder, which means after a while it becomes pretty dirty. Toss that old stuff and try something new, like L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Powder Foundation.  This is opaque enough to use as foundation, and it also works great as a pressed powder to cancel out a shiny nose.

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara and Cover Girl Full Lash Bloom

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara and Cover Girl Full Lash Bloom

3.  Mascara:  this is a must-toss every season! After a while, mascara dries out and loses its lash lengthening and thickening power. Plus, any product that isn’t a solid is in danger of collecting bacteria. Glam out with your mascara and then replace it as soon as it shows any sign of dryness or starts to smell ‘off’, typically at about three months. By the way, resist ‘pumping’ your mascara – it makes it dry out even more quickly, and always toss your mascaras if you have an eye infection. Two mascaras to try for long, lush lashes are Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara and Cover Girl Full Lash Bloom.

L'Oreal Revitalift Volume Filler Moisturizer

L’Oreal Revitalift Volume Filler Moisturizer

4.  Moisturizer:  jar moisturizer lasts at the most 6 months. Go through all those open jars you know you have sitting on your shelves and toss anything you opened last fall. Not only do they become a potential hazard for your skin because of bacteria, but the active ingredients stop working so why bother? Try something new, like L’Oreal Revitalift Volume Filler Moisturizer to smooth out those lines and wrinkles.

Degree Dryspray Deodorant

Degree Dry Spray Deodorant

5.  Deodorant:  yes, deodorant does have a shelf life! While most have expiration dates, a good rule of thumb is two years. It’s a great idea to stock up on deodorant when it is on sale, but be sure to write your purchase date on the extras if they don’t have an expiration date. A great replacement is Degree Dry Spray. It sprays on dry and protects for up to 48 hours, so no worries on those hectic late mornings!

Neutrogena Cooldry Sport Sunscreen

Neutrogena Cooldry Sport Sunscreen

6.  Sunscreen:  sunscreen loses its effectiveness over time and you sure don’t want to get a sunburn thanks to an outdated bottle. Most have an expiration date, but the longest any sunscreen will last is three years. My absolute favorite and a great one for restocking is Neutrogena Cooldry Sport.  I can even get my kids to put this on without a fight.

Cover Girl Lip Lava

Cover Girl Lip Lava

7.  Lip gloss:  a liquid product you apply to your lips?  Of course lip gloss is one of the biggest offenders when it comes to beauty items that go bad and need to be replaced regularly. Replace your old lip glosses with Cover Girl Lip Lava. I adore this lip gloss!  My favorite shade is Lava-Rider. I put it on then blot and I have a beautiful shimmery stain that lasts and lasts.

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Boosters Facial Cleanser

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Boosters Facial Cleanser

8.  Face cleanser:  these only last a year, so often a big bottle will expire before it’s gone. If your face cleanser isn’t working well, the consequences will definitely be evident to everyone! A great option for replacing your old stuff is Neutrogena Healthy Skin Boosters Facial Cleanser. White tea and vitamin E ensure clean skin without any dryness.

Embrace spring cleaning and refresh that beauty stash! Be sure to go to Meijer Beauty to check out their new lineup of cosmetic and skin care items and restock for a beautiful YOU.  – Lisa

Don’t Call Me Ma’am but do enter this skincare giveaway

Don't Call Me Ma'am products

Don’t Call Me Ma’am products

When DON’T CALL ME MA’AM emailed us about their products and offered a giveaway to one of our readers we were totally enticed. The name alone was enough to make me curious, the great packaging added another level and the fact that we could offer a set to one of you sealed the deal. I agreed to test out their products for all those reasons.

Don't Call Me Ma'am skincare trio

Don’t Call Me Ma’am skincare trio

DON’T CALL ME MA’AM is a reasonably priced skincare line that has excellent ingredients. We were sent three products to test out.  I’ve enjoyed using these and I love the packaging. It’s fun and gives me something to read in the bathroom – seriously. I enjoy looking at the sayings on each of the products and seem to discover new ones constantly.

Don't Call Me Ma'am sayings

Don’t Call Me Ma’am sayings

“Every day is 24 hours of opportunity”  “There are mountains to climb, people to meet, days to concur” “Age does not define how I look or feel” and “I am Beauty with a capital B” are just examples of the sayings on the packaging. Bright, cheerful and motivational products with easy to use tubes.

WASH IT AWAY is Don’t Call Me Ma’am’s cleanser. This tube of cleanser is refreshing and doesn’t make my skin feel tight after using it. It takes off eye makeup too without stinging my eyes. I find that unusual so that’s a definite plus. Not all mascara will come off with it (fiber ones or really thick mascara) but most of the ones I’ve been using lately, like Votre Vu’s Eiffel Tower, come off with ease. This is a cleanser that can be used by the whole family – they don’t have to be a “ma’am”. It’s fragrance free and has some essential ingredients like DCMM Botanical Extracts blend, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil and Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil. ($25)

Don't Call Me Ma'am WASH IT AWAY

Don’t Call Me Ma’am WASH IT AWAY

IN BALANCE EVERYDAY TONER comes next. This comes in a 6 oz spray bottle.  At first I wondered if I’d be comfortable spraying it but I actually enjoy it that way. I have used a cotton pad but it’s more efficient to just spray it on and let it dry. It’s a very calming toner and works to rebalance your skin’s pH balance as well as calm any inflammation. The essential ingredients in this are DCMM Botanical Blend and Allantoin (Skin conditioning agent). This too is fragrance free (that makes me so happy). ($25)

Don't Call Me Ma'am IN BALANCE EVERYDAY TONER

Don’t Call Me Ma’am IN BALANCE EVERYDAY TONER

FACE LOVE is their moisturizer. There is no SPF so I’ve been using it at night even though the website says to use it in the morning. (I’m such a rebel!) This doesn’t have a heavy feel to it yet it is quite moisturizing and makes my skin feel very soft. They say “This naturally hydrating formula binds moisture to the skin and promotes soft and supple tissue. “ The essential ingredients are DCMM Botanical Blend, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Oil, Jojoba Oil, Aloe Barbedensis (Aloe Vera) Extract, Tocopherol (natural Vitamin E), Panthenol. ($35, 4 oz)

Don't Call Me Ma'am FACE LOVE

Don’t Call Me Ma’am FACE LOVE

DON’T CALL ME MA’AM is Never tested on Animals and is free of harsh Chemicals, Parabens, Sulfates And Fragrances.

There are so many reasons to like this line because of the ingredients and also because of what it lacks which is just as important. Cruelty free products that will keep your skin in great shape and keep your mind busy and amused.

Don't Call Me Ma'am prize pack
