Truth Vitality helps our aging heads and maybe yours with a giveaway

truth in aging logoThe website Truth in Aging carries an amazing amount of products that will help us as we go through the aging process. You can count on them for over 20 brands and one of their newest is Truth Vitality which is a line of products especially designed for women with fine hair or women with thinning hair, those who’d simply like more voluminous hair on their head or eyebrows. We were sent a few products to see if it helped our aging heads.


What does your shower drain look like? It is a messy tangle of hair?? I shudder when I see mine…I can’t believe I am losing that much hair every time I shampoo and condition. Truth Vitality Shampoo and Conditioner promised me less shedding, so I was more than happy to give them a whirl.

Truth Vitality True Volume Shampoo and Conditioner

Truth Vitality True Volume Shampoo and Conditioner

It’s funny, for hair products that promise volume the formulas are certainly on the thin side…but they do deliver every promise.

Their nourishing formulas are infused with a unique copper peptide complex to encourage hair growth, as well as powerful antioxidants, vitamins, and extracts to rebuild struggling strands from the inside out.

The True Volume Shampoo’s formula is loaded with beneficial ingredients to fight thinning hair, increase volume and strength, and stimulate new hair growth, including copper peptides, caffeine, ferulic acid, vitamin A, and beta carotene.

Our conditioner offers a unique combination of emu oil and copper peptides to stimulate the hair follicles, increasing their size and encouraging hair growth. There’s also caffeine, beta-sitosterol, Aspen bark extract, and macadamia nut oil to add strength, volume, and shine.

Truth Vitality True Volume Shampoo and Conditioner

I do see less hair in my drain so I know I am shedding less as I use the True Volume Shampoo and Conditioner. My hair feels very soft, floaty, and full. It’s shiny too! Volume hair products often leave my hair feeling coated, but these don’t – my fine hair loves them.

These two hair products retail for $64, but right now I see them on the Truth in Aging website as a duo for $54.40.

If you have fine or thinning hair, you will love this sulfate/silicone/paraben-free duo. If you want to address hair loss, I think this is an excellent option.


Truth Vitality Brow Empower

Truth Vitality Brow Empower

BROW EMPOWER from Truth Vitality was created for people just like me. I never had to worry about my brows and gave them little thought. I’d pluck to keep strays away but they were full and I basically ignored them. Along came age and illness and my eyebrows are no longer what they were.

Truth Vitality Brow Empower

Truth Vitality Brow Empower

Brow Empower ($39) is a lightweight gel that you can apply day or night. It’s a light brown serum that will dry down so that you can apply eyebrow makeup over it. This stimulates healthy growth using a blend of copper peptides, vitamin B5, and emu oil. Copper peptides increase the size of hair follicles and stimulate new hair growth while the vitamin B5 and emu oil gently condition and smooth the hair strands.

Truth Vitality Brow Empower

Truth Vitality Brow Empower

The applicator of Brow Empower is a new technology and can break easily so you need to use some TLC with it. I admit that I dropped mine and it doesn’t work properly but I’m still using the product. I use a cotton swab to get the product and apply it to my brows that way. I’ll often then use the applicator to smooth it onto my brows.

Truth Vitality Brow Empower

Truth Vitality Brow Empower

Truth Vitality added a unique touch to this product. There is a small pin like tool that helps you keep the applicator top free from product. If it starts to clog up just wipe the metallic tip and orifice with a soft cloth or tissues and insert the pin. It clears it easily. I wish other products had thought to include something like this.

applicator for Brow Empower

applicator for Brow Empower

Something I found very interesting is that Truth in Aging has a community of testers so this and the other products in the Truth Vitality line have been tested and reviewed by them. I’ve started to see some brow growth and am finding new hairs. It’s so easy to use that I’ll continue this and hope that I can eventually see a fuller brow.

GIVEAWAY INFORMATION: Truth in Aging has kindly offered to send two winners products. You must be a US subscriber of Beauty Info Zone to enter. One subscriber will win the Truth Vitality Shampoo and Conditioner while another subscriber will win Truth Vitality Brow Empower. Your hardest job is to decide which of these would be best for your needs. The giveaway is open through 8/1/16 at 11:59 p.m. ET. If comments get cranky and close please email us at with the subject Truth in Aging and make your comment there. Please remember that we verify all entries so keep it on the straight and narrow.

A lip smacking giveaway with Good Earth Beauty Lip Scrubs


Once upon a time a maiden was searching for a shop that she could trust. One that carried natural products. One that was known for using organic ingredients. She believed that the items she used should be cruelty free and good for her. In her search she came upon Good Earth Beauty and knew that this was the start of a ‘happily ever after’.

*pr samples

As she was traveling her lips felt awfully dry. She knew that they were dehydrated since they didn’t feel smooth and she even had some lip peeling. This wouldn’t do but luckily she found that Good Earth Beauty had an exclusive set of products – exfoliating lip scrubs. They sounded pretty darn good. There were 7 individual lip scrubs ($8.25 each) but they also came in a set of 3 ($22) with chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla flavors. It reminded her of Neopolitan ice cream which she always loved. That sounded perfect and she asked her friend Marcia to test these out.

Marcia was very impressed with these and couldn’t wait to share them with her maiden friend and two of her blog subscribers. She wanted them to see how yummy they smelled and how great they tasted on her lips. Her biggest problem was deciding which Lip Scrub to use each day.

Did she want to taste chocolate, which she can’t go a day without? Or what about the enticing vanilla with it’s secondary taste of almond? But then again there was strawberry and it’s not summer without strawberry. The fragrance of this was enough for her to want a bowl of fruit instantly. She couldn’t choose just one so this trio is wonderful.

Good Earth Beauty Lip Scrub

Good Earth Beauty Lip Scrub

These are not goopy lip scrubs, they feel like pure sugar but they are loaded with great ingredients: sugar, organic sunflower oil, organic coconut oil, organic almond oil, organic shea butter, organic jojoba oil and flavor.

You’ll end up with sugar on your lips that you just lick away after rubbing them onto your lips to exfoliate them. It’s a triple threat: exfoliation, hydration, and deliciousness! You definitely want this kind of threat!  — Marcia

Good Earth Beauty has free shipping in the US plus there’s a discount code you can use on your purchases to receive 10% off: GEB10. They carry so many brands beside their own that the code will surely come in handy.

GIVEAWAY INFORMATION: Two US Beauty Info Zone subscribers will win a set of three Good Earth Beauty Lip Scrubs. Your set may include Chocolate, Vanilla and Strawberry OR Chocolate, Cherry Vanilla, and Strawberry. Either way you’ll come out a winner. The giveaway is open through 7/28/16 at 11:59 p.m. ET. If comments close early please email me at and label it Lip Scrubs; make your comment in the email so you can continue on with the Rafflecopter. Good yummy luck.

How Tom’s of Maine and Meijer are helping my ice cream craving (giveaway alert)

toms of maine ice cream

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream. Even decades after I learned this little ditty I still believe in it. This is what’s currently on the adult shelf in my freezer. There’s a kid’s shelf too so that everyone gets their fair share. The main shopping for my house is at Meijer who helped sponsor this post and giveaway with a gift card to make me happy.

So what did I buy with my g.c.? Well we know it’s ice cream but in addition to that I need something to protect my sensitive teeth. The answer was right there in the health section – Tom’s of Maine.

Out of all the great choices I decided to try their newest product RAPID RELIEF SENSITIVE TOOTHPASTE. It was calling my name although I came close to several others. But the word “sensitive” grabbed my eye as did “flouride-free” and “natural”.

This toothpaste does double duty since it not only gets my teeth clean and whiter but it can be used as a product to help numb your gums if you have a problem. To do that just rub it on any sensitive teeth for 1 minute while massaging away the sensitivity. Then you can get back to your ice cream or cold drinks.

Going to the dental hygienist isn’t a dream come true for most of us but when you yelp when your teeth are being cleaned, that’s when they recommend a toothpaste for sensitive teeth. I’ve tried several kinds but what’s unusual about Tom’s Rapid Relief Toothpaste is the groundbreaking formula. It combines the “natural power of arginine* with calcium carbonate* to heal seal pathways to sensitive or exposed nerves“. By using it daily I find it’s better for long-lasting protection.

This is a thick toothpaste so it adheres well to my brush without ending up in the sink the minute I turn on the power. It’s extremely fresh tasting with a minty flavor.

I’ve got my eye on more ice cream flavors at Meijer and I know my mouth won’t object. They carry Blue Bunny ice cream which I haven’t tried yet since the Michigan brand, Hudsonville, has been keeping me busy. I’ve still got some money left on the g.c. they sent so what should I buy?  — Marcia

Meijer is located in Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Kentucky but the gift card could also be used online. Their prices are great and, like I said, I do most of my grocery shopping there. My little ones love going to Meijer to buy what they call surprises. If you’ve been to Meijer you know it carries everything under the sun and even has a horsey ride for 1 cent!
