KBShimmer Winter Holiday Collection

KBShimmer Winter Holiday Collection

KBShimmer launched their Winter/Holiday Collection this month and I am thrilled with the gorgeous shades. Some are definitely holiday perfection and some are great for the whole winter season. Today you can win three of these polishes – Kind of a Big Dill, Smoke Signal, and Chilly Pepper – so you can have a festive mani/pedi in time for all the celebrations.

I’ve been wearing Coal in One ($8.75) nonstop since it arrived on my doorstep. This is a stunning charcoal grey linear holographic. I think I have gotten more compliments on this unique polish than I have on any other polish I’ve worn. It looks so different in every light – grey, green, gold – it catches everyone’s eye and attention. This is one piece of ‘coal’ you want in your stocking on Christmas morning.

Today we are giving away three other beautiful shades from the KBShimmer Winter Holiday Collection.

Reviva Labs Collagen Fibre Eye Pads w/Myoxinol Kit review and giveaway

Collagen Fibre Eye Pads w/Myoxinol Kit

Collagen Fibre Eye Pads w/Myoxinol Kit

We aren’t going to tell you how much we love Reviva Labs products because you’ve read about them over and over. We aren’t going to tell you that Reviva Labs has been in business since 1973 making products that are innovative. You probably don’t want to know that they were the first company to introduce Elastil to the United States. In 1973 the concern about products being cruelty-free wasn’t an issue, yet Reviva Labs instituted that mission for all their products. No we aren’t going to tell you that because what you really want to know about is REVIVA LABS COLLAGEN FIBRE EYE PADS W/MYONIXOL KIT (#590) that were sent for review and for a giveaway. There are two different products in this kit and both are wonderful.


Reviva Labs Skin Energizing Gel

Reviva Labs Skin Energizing Gel

Lisa and I have had the pleasure of reviewing the Skin Energizing Gel before. Lisa was the one who had these fabulous words about it: “it’s like a Wonderbra. It takes what you’ve got and makes it a little more impressive.” While that cracked me up, I think it’s also spot on. This is sold separately for $11 and is a product you’d love with or without the Collagen Fibre Eye Pads. Skin Energizing Gel is the item in the kit that will keep on going after you’ve used the eye pads. This can be used either alone or under your under your other facial products. The purpose is to boost the effects of products that you lay over the gel. It helps energize the absorption and performance in your products. Once combined with the Collagen Fibre Eye Pads the magic will be noticeable.

Reviva Labs Collagen-Fibre Eye Pad Kit

Reviva Labs Collagen-Fibre Eye Pad Kit

Ingredients: Purified water, algae extract (Hawaiian seaplant), phenoxyenthanol and chlorphenesin and sodium dehydroaceteate (preservative system).

LISA’S SIDE, part 1

Reviva Labs Collagen-Fibre Eye Pad

Got undereye wrinkles? How about puffiness? Dark circles? The COLLAGEN FIBRE with MYOXINOL® Eye Pads give immediate gratification from these under-eye woes, and over time they bring lasting results. The eye pads are made with 100% pure freeze dried Collagen-Fibre, which gives the under eye area an immediate lift through intense hydration. Reviva Labs also added Myoxinol, which is an ingredient from Hibiscus flowers that relaxes skin tissue and truly improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The immediate gratification is dramatic – although temporary. However, keep using these little eye pads of awesomeness to turn that ‘temporary’ into ‘permanent’.


I write about masks for the face and eyes all the time and I use them often. I’m a firm believer in spending an extra 15 or so minutes several times a week to boost my skincare. This set ($38 for 4 sets of eye pads and a 2 oz. bottle of mineral rich Skin Energizing Gel) is a wonderful addition to that routine. They are easy to use and they stay on me so I can do something while I’m beautifying. Or I can take an iPad break and lay down and rest. I really like to use these on days I’m going out somewhere other than my errands. My eyes look rested and less lined. Anything that will plump while reducing puffiness is a wonder.

LISA’S SIDE, part 2

Reviva Labs Collagen-Fibre Eye Pad Kit

Reviva Labs Collagen-Fibre Eye Pad Kit

The Collagen Fibre Pads feel like paper, but with the addition of water they turn into a gel that infuses the under eye area with hydrating collagen. They are pretty terrific used with just water, but the addition of the Skin Energizing Gel definitely amplifies the results. The eye pads are quite large so if you wanted to concentrate on one area of wrinkles or under eye darkness you could cut the eye pads in half for two treatments out of one pack. I like to use these while getting ready for ‘date night’ since they make such a difference so quickly. After working all day I have dark circles and I look pretty tired. It just takes 20 minutes with my Reviva Labs Collagen-Fibre Eye Pads to erase the day and take a few years off my face!


GIVEAWAY INFORMATION:  This is a US only giveaway that’s open through Monday Dec. 7, 2015 at 11:59 p.m for 2 winners.

Get in on this Good Earth Beauty Giveaway and explore the provocative powers of pumpkin!

Good Earth Beauty Giveaway!

Good Earth Beauty Giveaway!

Guess which scent is always in the ‘top ten’ of fragrances that turn men on? Pumpkin. I know, right? Who wants to smell like a pumpkin??  I think you will once you read about this beautiful scent from Mod Perfume for Good Earth Beauty, especially since you can win one with our giveaway!

Before I commence convincing you that smelling like a pumpkin is WAY better than looking like one, let me tell you about Good Earth Beauty.  Good Earth Beauty is a website with natural and organic lines like dermaE, Gabriel Cosmetics, and Kiss My Face. Every product they offer has been personally tested and recommended by their staff. They have cosmetics lines, bath and body lines, hair care lines, and products for babies and pets. If you want the best natural and organic products, Good Earth Beauty is an excellent shopping resource.

Spiced Pumpkin Brulee

A fragrance line they carry is MOD Perfume for Good Earth Beauty. They have the coolest selection of fragrances as well as scented body creams and body washes. When they sent me the Spiced Pumpkin Brulee Fragrance for review, I thought…seriously? Pumpkin?? Then I read that pumpkin is one of the top scents for inspiring men to boogie in the boudoir, so I figured I would give it a shot. All in the name of research, of course.

Good Earth Beauty Spiced Pumpkin Brulee Perfume

Good Earth Beauty Spiced Pumpkin Brulee Fragrance

The Spiced Pumpkin Brulee Fragrance ($35) sounds very foody.  It’s described as sweet, creamy pumpkin cake batter with rich vanilla caramel and hints of spice. However, it’s more sophisticated than expected.  It doesn’t really smell like dessert, although it certainly smells delicious…the spice cuts the food aspect so you don’t smell like a kitchen at Thanksgiving. Instead, it’s a warm scent that makes people want to get closer…then closer again…which is, of course, essential for that boudoir boogie.

Mod perfumes are also extremely concentrated since they aren’t diluted with the typical agents that scents are cut with, like water or alcohol. That means the .5 oz bottle lasts a good 4 months since you need just a tiny bit to smell divine.

So will the Spiced Pumpkin Brulee Fragrance make you irresistible to men? I certainly had my doubts that pumpkin would make a good fragrance, let alone that my husband would like it – but surprisingly he actually loves this perfume.

GIVEAWAY INFORMATION –  Good Earth Beauty is sending 2 US Beauty Info Zone subscribers a Spiced Pumpkin Brulee Fragrance. The value of a .5 oz. roller ball Mod Perfume for Good Earth Beauty is $35. The giveaway is open through 11/30 at 11:59 p.m. EST. If comments close please email me at beautyinfozone@gmail.com and label it PUMPKIN. Comment in the email and continue on for your chance to test out the provocative powers of pumpkin.

A great giveaway with Mont Bleu!

Mont Bleu logoWith the holidays approaching, gift giving is on everyone’s mind. Beauty Info Zone turns to Mont Bleu as a great online resource for beautiful gifts, including glass nail files decorated with beautiful crystals, Swarovski decorated hair brushes, beautiful bracelets, necklaces, and hair pins, and so much more. Every piece comes with a certificate of authenticity. We have been impressed with the fantastic quality of Mont Bleu items for years now, as well as their incredibly fast shipping.

Today we have two amazing gift options to show you, and you can win one of them to gift to someone…although we recommend keeping it for yourself!

Lisa recommends:

The Crystal Art Angel Picture!

I can’t even begin to describe how beautiful this crystal artwork is. While the crystal artwork takes some time to arrive – it’s made especially for you once you order it – the wait is absolutely worth it. I picked theAngel’, but there are lots of other choices available. You can choose from fairies, mermaids, angels, ballerinas – there are 33 different silhouette designs so there is something for everyone.

The genuine Swarovski Elements crystals are gorgeous. They shimmer and shine, and are especially dramatic against the jet black background. They arrive in a black presentation box and can be displayed in it or hung on a wall. A specially trained artist makes your artwork when you order, so every piece is unique and individual. The end result is sleek and stunning. This is an amazing gift for the holidays or a wonderful piece for your home. I have a meditation room and my gorgeous angel is right at home, bringing me some bling and some bliss.

  • Size of the picture in frame: 31x22x2 cm or 12.2×8.66×0.79 inches
  • Size of the box: 36x27x4 cm or 14.17×10.63×1.58 inches

The crystal art pictures are spendy – they run anywhere from about $280 to $850 – but they truly are showstoppers that make a huge impact. Fantastic!!

Marcia recommends:

The Waterfall Mix Compact Mirror with Swarovski Crystals!

I’m in love with the Compact Mirrors from Mont Bleu. It’s a thrill to open your cosmetic bag or evening bag and bring out one of these gorgeous compacts. You’ll certainly gather some interest from people around you. Compact mirrors decorated with Swarovski crystals are assembled in a unique design by hand and are perfect as a gift for her; they are presented in royal black leatherette gift box.

There are many different designs with the compact mirrors but all have the same wonderful craftsmanship. The compacts come with mirrors on both sides, a standard mirror and a magnifying side. They are 70mm in diameter so they are just the right size to check on your lips and eyes plus fit nicely in your bag. I often have trouble opening palettes but the compacts by Mont Bleu that are made with SWAROVSKI® ELEMENTS have an easy to open button.

Here’s the compact I had sent to me and what you can win in this giveaway provided by Mont Bleu.

I’m so happy with this colorful yet lightweight compact that I find excuses to touch up my makeup when I’m out. Mirrors like these are very affordable and make wonderful gifts for all occasions. You can see the beautiful designs on Mont Bleu’s website. This particular mirror would be 12 euros/$12.92 US. Prices range from $12.92 US to $38.69 US for most of these mirrors while the fabulous glass nail files range from $5.40 to $10.77. There’s something for everyone on your list!

With Thanksgiving and the holidays coming up, I decided to plan ahead and not wait until I had already gained 10 pounds from all the mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie. I hired a personal trainer and I have been working out with him twice a week, as well as working out on my own. I also have a very big birthday coming up, so I decided to really take my skin care seriously and focus on using anti-aging products that truly make a difference.

With my new Nike shoes at the gym

RoC® RETINOL CORREXION® Eye Cream is a great eye cream that tackles puffiness and dark circles, both of which seem to increase with the frenzy of the holidays. Using it regularly also reduces the look of wrinkles and crow’s-feet. Another plus – this has no fragrance.

RoC® RETINOL CORREXION® Deep Wrinkle Night Cream is a lightweight moisturizer with Retinol, a skin care heavy hitter that does all the work while you sleep. The moisturizer has a soft, creamy texture that isn’t wet and heavy. RoC is known for using packaging that ensures the stability and efficacy of the active ingredients, a major plus when it comes to serious skin care. Put this on before bed and you will wake up to younger looking skin for the new year and beyond.
