Le Mieux wants to make you look better than ever with their Anti-Aging Set

le mieux boxI am totally mesmerized with eye products, especially eye treatments, so I was excited to see that Le Mieux has created a kit that every company around should take note of. They’ve taken 3 of their best selling eye products and put it into one beautiful box, Le Mieux Anti-Aging Set.

When Beauty Info Zone is approached to review items from a skincare line I instantly look into what eye products are offered. I’m meticulous about taking care of my eyes (to make up for past sins most likely. I always remove every bit of eye makeup before bed, no matter how tired or lazy I am. I always put on an eye cream/serum/gel under my eyes before bed. Plus an eye cream is essential in the mornings along with concealer.

Le Mieux Anti Aging Set

Le Mieux Anti Aging Set

This pretty pink box holds everything I’d wanted to try from Le Mieux – well not everything since it’s actually created some desires to try more.

The important thing to know about Le Mieux is that their goal is to help renew the collagen that our faces lose as we age. Their motto says it all:

With the Anti-Aging Set they are helping to improve firmness and elasticity around our eyes. They want to help us avoid injections that can be painful and expensive.

The set comes with a travel size TGF-B Booster Serum (5 mL), the full size TGF-B Eye Firming Masks (4 sets) and full size Eye Wrinkle Corrector (.5 oz, 15 mL). The items are perfect for travel as well as home use.

TGF-ß BOOSTER

TGF-ß BOOSTER

I love eye masks and am always happy to have different ones to try out. They may be a temporary fix but they are a happy temporary fix. The TGF-B Eye Firming Masks are used in conjunction with the TGF-B Booster Serum. The routine is to put a few drops of the serum on your clean, dry face just under your eyes. Then apply the moist side of the eye mask with the larger end closer to your nose. Relax for 15-20 minutes and remove the masks but don’t rinse off the area around your eyes. Instead massage the serum into your skin until it’s absorbed. The masks are meant to be used once or twice a week. Follow up with a small drop of the Eye Wrinkle Corrector.

TGF-ß EYE FIRMING MASKS

TGF-ß EYE FIRMING MASKS

The masks are refreshing to use. I notice less of those fine lines that make me look older. Here’s what Le Mieux tells us about these: “Years of research developed a powerful and innovative cooling eye-energizing mask to help increase oxygen uptake. The sophisticated micro delivery system helps to improve the appearance of fine lines and stimulates collagen synthesis.”

Even when you are finished with the masks in the kit you’ll still have plenty of the TGF-B Booster Serum and Eye Wrinkle Corrector left. You’ll be very happy about that! The TGF-B Booster has won the Beauty Awards Best Serum of 2012. This can be used anywhere on your face to help with diminishing fine lines. It has my favorite ingredient in it too – hyaluronic acid. From Le Mieux: “Unlike any product on the market today, this highly enriched concentrated serum has 85% pharmaceutical grade anti-aging ingredients and human-like growth factors in a Hyaluronic Acid base. It works on the cellular level by stimulating the production of soluble collagen and elastin from human fibroblasts. TGF-? Booster diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for a luminous, healthy, youthful glow.” This is a wonderful moisturizing serum.

EYE WRINKLE CORRECTOR

EYE WRINKLE CORRECTOR

The Eye Wrinkle Corrector is recommended to be used over the TGF-ß Booster Serum but I’ve used it without too. It can be used once or twice a day. I especially like using it in the morning since I like the pump and the lotion consistency of it under makeup.

The only tricky part about this is ordering it. The best ways are to call them at 888-327-8188 from 9 to 5 PST and purchase them that way or you can email the company info@lemieuxcosmetics.com to find out where they might be sold locally. These are used at professional offices and medical spas so they are a brand that’s a little harder to get but definitely worth it. The set is $60 which is a great price since the full size Eye Wrinkle Corrector is $45, the box of 4 pairs of TGF-B Eye Firming Masks are $12, and a full size TGF-B Booster Serum is $65 for 1 fl. oz (you get .5 fl oz in the kit).

The Le Mieux Anti-Aging Set is a great way to begin learning about the Le Mieux line. Once you try it, you might be hooked on looking younger than springtime. — Marcia

EYES by ToGoSpa – new varieties and a giveaway

Eyedews eye masks have been part of our lives at Beauty Info Zone since April, 2013 when Marcia read about them and had to learn about these. An order was instantly placed and she fell in love. We now find that Eyedews has expanded and they are now called EYES by ToGoSpa. Not only do they make the original ICE WATER masks featured in Makeup Wars but they’ve added in “flavors”.  They were kind enough to send us the new flavors to review and offer a giveaway for 2 of you.

EYES by ToGoSpa will take you 15 minutes to use. You can be a Pomegranate type or a Green Tea type or maybe you just want the refreshment of Ice Water. All of these are available to you from ToGoSpa. Each package contains 3 refreshing masks and are sold in packs of 2 for $25, so they are about $4 each. There are no dyes used in EYES products nor are there any parabens. Here’s what EYES by ToGoSpa tells us about

  • Improves circulation and stimulates production of new, youthful skin cells.
  • Relaxes, calms, and pumps up moisture-retention levels to new heights.
  • De-puffs and reduces dark circles with skin-brightening ingredients.
  • Relieves irritation and redness calming compounds.
  • Minimizes pores with clarifying, cleansing oils.
  • Hydrates crepe-like skin and resurfaces fine lines.

MARCIA’S EYES:

I was so excited to find that the old Eyedews had changed and improved. When they offered to send some of the new ones for testing and a giveaway I was even more excited.

To be honest, I can’t pick a favorite. I think all three are going to be what you are looking for when you need to look refreshed. My review is for Green Tea EYES but I recommend all three styles.

When you look at EYES the only thing you’ll notice is a slight color difference. Green Tea has a green tinge, Pomegranate a reddish tinge and Ice Water is clear.

The Green Tea with Taurine gel pads are great when you need a lift. Green Tea is known to be a super anti-oxidant that helps to combat the damage from free radicals. Those free radicals are all over the place causing aging. I, for one, don’t need anyone else to cause me aging, I do quite well on my own. Taurine enhances the green tea since it also provides provides the protection of antioxidents as well as being anti-inflammatory.

You can go about life wearing these. After a few minutes they don’t slip down and they don’t pull on your face. They are not only comfortable but they are totally refreshing. I don’t know about you but I’m happy to find that these soothe, lift, brighten, de-puff and hydrate my under eye area.

I recommended these too as a stocking stuffer. You can buy a two pack and split the packs up (or keep them all for yourself).

LISA’S EYES:

Marcia is right, these collagen gel pads are perfect stocking stuffers. One pack has three treatments and it’s a great way to get gorgeous before a night on the town. I am reviewing the Pomegranate EYES, which soothe, de-puff, and hydrate in just 15 minutes.

Pomegranate EYES

The good stuff inside includes aloe, vitamins C and E, and amino acids. Together they give a cooling effect to the pads (and if you have super puffy eyes, put these in the fridge for mega results). After 15 minutes my eyes are no longer puffy. Instead, they are super hydrated and those fine lines are much harder to find.

there are three foils like this in one pack

these collagen eye pads stay in place!

My biggest beef with similar products is the ‘slippage’ problem. It’s a pain to have to keep pushing the gel pad back into place. It definitely isn’t fun to have one fall into my plate of bon bons as I am relaxing. However, I am happy to report the EYES by ToGoSpa stay put. I love these collagen gel eye pads and hope to find a bunch in my stocking…Santa are you listening???

 

GIVEAWAY: EYES by ToGoSpa totally rocks. They are very kindly offering 2 US readers a sample pack containing 3 of each variety so winners will get 9 Collagen Eye Gel pads. The giveaway is open through 12/20/13.

Makeup Wars picks favorite facial masks, I pick Eyedews


Makeup Wars is back and this time around we are all picking face masks. I actually bought a new one from Sephora just for this post but changed my mind once I started using Eyedews Eye Mask. I can’t believe how much I like this product.

Eyedews information

Eyedews information

The story behind my purchase of Eyedews is that I was seriously contemplating buying Le Metier de Beaute’s Ultra Hydration Eye Mask since it is amazing. It’s also a lot of money that I didn’t have at that moment but I couldn’t stop thinking about it. I was reading US Magazine and there was an article with Jenny McCarthy titled “What’s in my bag” and she mentioned Eyedews Under Eye Gel Pads. She mentioned that she puts them on during plane rides so that her eyes aren’t puffy when she lands. That sounded similar to the LMdB in that you can do just about anything once they are on. Off to their website and it was $20 for a set of 6 plus a few dollars shipping. You obviously know by now that I hit BUY. If nothing else I’d have a review on Beauty Info Zone, good or bad.

Well they happen to be good. They aren’t the same as the Le Metier ones but they are still darned good. The biggest difference is that Eyedews stay wet the entire time. They will slip a little so you if you aren’t laying down you will probably have to slide them up. They are loaded with great ingredients that I’d love to bore you with, but I know you want to read everyone else’s favorites. But if you go to their ingredient page, you’ll see what I mean. They are anti-aging, they help plump those circles under my eyes, they make me look relaxed and they diminish my crow’s feet. They are as heavenly as they sound.

Eyedews

Eyedews

They are the easiest eye mask I’ve ever used. You cut open a package, place them and relax for 15-20 minutes. Or don’t relax but wait until they are in place before you go do something. The Eyedews website has all sorts of tips for using these so the second time I used them, after my undereye area was finished, I then put them on my actual eye on the brow area. I did have to relax when I did that but it made my eyes look even more wide awake. This summer I’ll stick a package in the fridge so that they’ll help cool me down when I’m having ‘one of those days’.

Lots of masks can make you look good for a short time, it’s the long term that counts and I find I get at least 2 – 3 days of more refreshed looking eyes out of these. I’m impressed with these for all the reasons above. As they say on the Eyedews website “Eyedews are made for anyone with a face”. I never thought that my beauty guru would be Jenny McCarthy but she was right. (And I do have a face, I just don’t show it on Beauty Info Zone.) If you’ve ever tried Eyedews I’d love to hear what you think about them. — Marcia

Biobliss Anti-Wrinkle Patch for Eyes – a vacation in a package

You’ve read about Biobliss on Beauty Info Zone before but not much about the Biobliss Under Eye Patch, officially called BIOBLISS Anti-Wrinkle Patch for Eyes. The original Biobliss was a patch for your forehead that was compared to acting like topical botox. They’ve since added more products like this Under Eye Patch. I received a sample package of this for review and gave you a hint in my last Makeup Wars (Spa) article.

What’s so interesting to me about this Biobliss Anti-Wrinkle Patch is that it is a transdermal system that works in a similar way to a nicotine or estrogen patch. You activate the system by pressing on the circular button within the patch and it safely releases a micro-current with anti-aging ingredients deeper into the skin.

It’s not a wet system like many I’ve tried and it doesn’t dry down at all. The patch itself is sort of thick and at first I was sure it would be uncomfortable but I was quickly proven wrong. You place it under your eyes and press hard to seal the edges. I don’t know if I was supposed to press the circular button first but I didn’t. Once it was comfortable on my eyes I just pressed on the circle and went off to do my thing. I could comfortably wear my glasses and do just about anything I wanted around my house. You know they are on, they aren’t invisible and you can feel them. But they aren’t uncomfortable.

biobliss ingredients

Biobliss patches contain proven ingredients that are safe and effective. Without boring you here’s a little about each of these:

-Hyaluronan promotes collagen and enhances tissue repair. We naturally produce less of this as we age and our skin isn’t able to hold the same moisture. Being rich in hyaluronan the patch gently infuses it to enhance hydration.

-Peptides stimulate the layers in our skin to increase collagen synthesis. It helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

-Moroccan Argan fruit extract is the oil from the kernel of the Argan fruit tree. This too has wrinkle reducing effects and has demonstrated its skin tightening results.

-Vitamin B5 is a valuable antioxidant for your body. It’s naturally contained in many food items like eggs, nuts, whole grains, legumes and fish. But it can also be applied topically for absorption by the skin to promote moisture uptake and hydration.

biobliss on bothNow for my results!! If you read my Makeup Wars Spa Day review then you know this was part of my relaxing and wonderful day. The directions say that you can leave the Biobliss Anti-Wrinkle Patch on for 30 minutes but I was so relaxed that I left it on for almost an hour. Since they are one time use only I wanted to get the most out of this as possible. Plus my eyes had been puffy and I was eager to see how they’d help with that problem.

Here’s the before:

Before

I noticed a big difference when looking in the mirror that entire day and the results lasted me for 3 days. Biobliss recommends using their serum after but I just put on my Fiafini eye cream and it felt wonderful. A set of 4 sells for $72 on the Biobliss website and ships for free. I did see a single sold for $22 on amazon.com if you wanted to try it out. The minute I start fretting about forehead wrinkles I’m going to get the Anti-Wrinkle Patch for Forehead. Have your own spa day and remember to use an eye mask like this Biobliss one. You’ll love how you look and feel! — Marcia

Le Metier’s new Ultra Hydration Eye Mask Duo had us at first blink

le metier eye maskBeauty Info Zone is no stranger to Le Metier de Beaute. We’ve been in love with the brand since our first shopping foray at Neiman Marcus in Troy, Michigan. We were at the counter that day for absolutely hours and then we came back the following week to get our makeup done. When we learned about their newest product, ULTRA HYDRATION EYE MASK DUO, our hearts were racing. Happily, just before Beauty Week at Neiman, we were each sent a mask to try out.

These masks can be used just about anywhere. They stay in place so that you can go about your daily business. You can even exercise in them as you’ll soon see. You can wear them with or without makeup. They don’t disturb your makeup but boy do they make your eyes look fabulous after use. The sad news is that these are a one time use product, the happy news is that they really work.

Le Metier

Le Metier Ultra Hydration Eye Mask Duo

First, here’s what Neiman Marcus and Le Metier de Beaute have to tell us about these masks. Then Marcia and Lisa will tell you about their experiences.

Perfectly shaped translucent treatment patches help restore the delicate under eye area with an infusion of moisturizing actives. Featuring patented technology, the seaweed-based mask immediately cools, delivering tuned hydration to deeply quench and refresh tired skin. The perfect amount of moisture packed into one package, ideal for keeping under eyes refreshed and revived at home or on-the-go.

  • Translucent masks seal in one-way hydration to energize and brighten eyes.
  • Seaweed-base immediately delivers a cool, calming sensation with actives to soothe the delicate under eye area.
  • Individual sachets ideal for extended air travel, hotel stays, or boosting moisture after exercise.
  • Translucent patches deliver moisture discretely and effectively.

Marcia’s side:

I used my eye mask after a particularly sleepless night, one of tossing and turning. If the Le Metier de Beaute eye mask could work on refreshing me after a night like that I’d know they were a winner.  I was given some advice by a friend that works for Le Metier so even though it wasn’t in the directions she told me to put them in the refrigerator before using. From reading other people’s experiences with this mask duo I know it’s not necessary to do this but boy was it amazingly revitalizing.

These are so easy to apply, unlike many masks where I’ve had to fight to get them on properly. They felt cool (obviously) and surprisingly lightweight. You can go about your business without even realizing they are on. They are designed to be worn absolutely anywhere, I can picture using them on an airplane before landing so that you would look refreshed.

le metier eye mask ingredients

After my 15 minutes were up I removed the patches and patted the product that was left into my skin (also on the advice of the LMdB employee). My eyes looked refreshed and no one other than my husband (who I woke up half a dozen times during the night) had a clue that I had had a sleepless night.  — Marcia

 Lisa’s side:

I love eye masks because I very often wake up with puffy eyes. I don’t know if it’s because of the way I sleep, or maybe I don’t drink enough water, but it’s definitely more of a problem as I get older.

I found these little eye masks to be pretty awesome. I didn’t put them in the refrigerator like Marcia did (Marcia, why didn’t you share that fabulous tip with me???) but they still felt extremely cool to the skin. They stick on very nicely.

I actually put these on, cleaned out my car, then then did some rebounding. A rebounder is a little trampoline that I have in my house – if I watch TV, I make myself jump on the rebounder during the commercials. This way I feel extremely virtuous as I watch RuPaul’s Drag Race or The Soup.

I figured the eye masks would migrate down during my mini- exercise sessions, but they didn’t.  I had a small issue with some hairs sort of sticking, but I just put my hair up in a clip and that problem was solved.

I wore my eye masks for about a half hour because I forgot they were on! Afterward, there was a truly noticeable difference. These eye masks work. – Lisa

Ultra Hydration Eye Masks are $150 for a box of 8 sets and would be the perfect item to buy during the upcoming Neiman Marcus Beauty week. Le Metier is doing a competition between bloggers and we’d really appreciate it if you’d tell the Neiman Marcus counter that Marcia or Lisa or Beauty Info Zone sent you. We hope to be able to do a giveaway too for our readers with Le Metier products. Please call or visit the Troy, MI store (248-643-3300 X2104 or X2106) and tell Venus we sent you. No matter where you look into these masks you’ll be doing yourself a favor by doing so, they are wonderful.
