I’ve joined the coconut revolution with Palmer’s (giveaway time)


Walk into any drugstore or superstore like Target and Walmart and you’ll be sure to see this logo. Palmer’s has been around helping us out for years. But they aren’t the same old Palmer’s of your youth. They are new and improved and keeping up with the times.

My blog partner Lisa is a coco-NUT. Anything that has the scent of coconut is something she’ll try so I had to sneak today’s products by her so that I could see what the fuss was all about. And now I do. Palmer’s has created two great Coconut Oil Formula products that I’m the one getting nutty about.

samplesaffiliate links


Palmer’s Coconut Oil Cleansing Balm

Cleansing Balms are a great alternative to regular cleansers since they are so gentle on your skin. This one by Palmer’s uses their Coconut Oil Formula which uses only ethically and sustainably sourced Coconut Oil and Tahitian Monoi Oil that’s been infused with Tiare flower petals. Sounds fancy doesn’t it? But this is just $8 and will last for so long.

Palmer’s Coconut Oil Cleansing Balm

Upon opening you’ll find a slightly solid texture that you use on dry skin. Work it onto your face with just a small amount of warm water and it will transform into a rich and creamy texture to gently remove everything from the day from dirt and impurities to  makeup. It feels wonderful while on and you’ll enjoy massaging this in. I use warm water and a wash cloth (usually a flannel cloth from The Body Shop) to remove this.

Palmer’s Coconut Oil Cleansing Balm

So why this cleansing balm as compared to some of the more expensive ones?

  • No Phthalates
  • No Parabens
  • No Mineral Oil
  • No Gluten
  • No Sulfates
  • No Dyes
  • Natural Coconut Oil & Monoi

Not only is this effective but the smell is intoxicating! My skin doesn’t feel stripped and this adds just the right touch of hydration especially as the weather is flip flopping around.


Palmer’s Coconut Oil Hydrating Facial Mask

As a certified (or is it certifiable?) mask lover I am totally impressed with the Hydrating Facial Mask from Palmer’s. The first time I used it I was bowled over by it. This is one of the gentlest masks I’ve ever used and it’s definitely the least messy mask I’ve used. I can’t rave about this enough and for sure I’ll stop at Walmart to pick this up when I’m done with this tube.

Palmer’s Coconut Oil Hydrating Facial Mask

It shows up as a pure white on my skin so my pictures wouldn’t show you anything. This Coconut Oil Hydrating Facial Mask feels so light on yet when I wash it off my face my skin is totally replenished and feels soft for days. It only takes 10 minutes to use and then I massage it onto my skin before rinsing. While it makes no promises to reduce pores and make me look 10 years younger, it does tighten up my pores and makes my skin look its best. I can use this as many times a week as I want because it’s as gentle as a lamb.

Palmer’s Coconut Oil Hydrating Facial Mask

It’s made with pure coconut water along with a rich blend of natural oils (Coconut Oil, Monoi Oil, and Sweet Almond Oil).

  • No parabens, phthalates, mineral oil, sulfates and dyes
  • No gluten
  • Made with natural coconut oil and monoi
  • Formulated with ethically and sustainably sourced ingredients
  • With raw coconut sugar
  • Made with natural vitamin E

Not only am I happy that I’m now part of the coconut family but two of you will be able to win these products thanks to Palmer’s.  —  Marcia


Two US Beauty Info Zone subscribers will win both the Coconut Oil Hydrating Facial Mask and the Coconut Oil Cleansing Balm from Palmer’s. The giveaway is open through October 5th at 11:59 p.m. EDT. Remember I need to be able to find your email subscription to Beauty Info Zone so if you aren’t receiving emails then sign up again!

Another charming box for Boxycharm and another charming giveaway

September 2017 Boxycharm

I think I get more excited about receiving my Boxycharm each month than just about anything. I’ve purchased this now for about 2 years and I’m even on a 6 month prepurchase. After I moved my box never got forwarded and they were terrific about getting me a box so their CS is top notch.

The variety of items in Boxycharm makes me happy plus just about every month there’s a full size eyeshadow palette and you know I’m all about eyeshadows. This month’s box is great for those of us who love eye makeup.

Pur Cosmetics Soiree Diaries eyeshadow palette

I was most excited to learn about this Pur Cosmetics Soiree Diaries eyeshadow palette? Is the Pope Catholic? Darn tootin’ I was and this shows why:

Pur Cosmetics Soiree Diaries eyeshadow palette

8 beautiful matte shadows and 4 shimmers and all in colors I love to wear.

Pur Cosmetics Soiree Dairies (from purcosmetics.com)

This $34 palette will be getting a lot of use from me and Boxycharm has more than paid for itself with just this one item.

Bodyography eyeshadow and angled liner brushes

This Brush Duo from Bodyography (value $20) is a great accompaniment to this palette. The flat shader is the style brush that I use for my lids every day.  It’s a goat hair brush that is soft yet dense. The angled liner is soft and easy to use with the matte shadows or gel liners for lining.

MAC Lingering Eyebrow Pencil

Not only has Boxycharm added brands like Pur and ColourPop but now there’s MAC. MAC Lingering Eye Brow Pencil is a self-propelling, self-sharpening brow definer. Great for travel. Subscribers received either Lingering or Spiked. ($18)

Studio Makeup HD Powder

Studio Makeup HD Powder ($35) is also in the box. I don’t know about you but a jar this size will last me for years. Since it’s a translucent powder it should work on just about everyone. Some people received a loose blush from Studio Makeup in their box.

Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip in Strut

Each month brings us a lip from Boxy and this month they again sent the popular Colourpop our way. I received Strut which is a pretty fall shade in their Ultra Satin Lip formula.

Colourpop Sturt Ultra Satin Lip (from colourpop.com)

Colourpop describes this as a cool toned taupe. Even with the name “ultra satin” it’s a matte liquid lip but it’s not as drying as their Ultra Matte.

Brigeo Don’t Despair Repair Deep Conditioning Mask

Boxycharm seems to be putting in a non-cosmetic item each month too and this month it’s Brigeo Don’t Despair Repair Deep Conditioning Mask (2 oz, value $9). Brigeo is very popular and this mask is one of their top sellers. It’s to be left in your hair for 5-10 minutes before rinsing out. This isn’t a good mask for me since it’s so highly fragranced (my opinion) but one of my good friends love it so she’ll receive it in the next package I send her.

The total value for my $21 Boxycharm subscription is $123 so I’d say I’m ahead of the game. And since my last Boxycharm giveaway was such a success I have another one for you today.In this particular giveaway you’ll receive two items from Studio Makeup plus the MAC Lingering Eye Brow Pencil and lots of surprises. The palette is from a previous Boxycharm and has been knocking around in my drawer so it looks a little under the weather but it’s brand new.

Studio Makeup On-The-Go palette

To enter you need to be an email Beauty Info Zone subscriber and comment. Those two are mandatory although you wouldn’t believe how many entries I get that people don’t do these (bye bye kiddo). All other Rafflecopter entries are there to help you get more chances to win. The giveaway is open through 9/30 at 11:59 p.m. EDT. If comments close early email me at [email protected] with your comment. This is open for US and Canada only.

If I’ve convinced you to become a Boxycharm subscriber then I hope you’ll use my affliate link. — Marcia

ColourPop glitter eyeshadow giveaway time

It’s fall and it’s time for a cosmetic giveaway. We’ve got 3 ColourPop eyeshadows and a ColourPop brush for one lucky lady plus a second winner will receive one shadow.

These fall shades are all Super Shock eyeshadows which means they have a spongy feel to them. They work best with fingers and CP has created some brushes for those of us who prefer to use them.

Shades are

CRICKET  –  an Ultra Glitter shade that’s described as icy purple with multi-dimensional glitter. I see it as a bronze with a purple undertone and multi-glitter

ColourPop Cricket

PEEKABOO  –  to my eye it’s a glittery light beige with a slight peach undertone (discontinued)

ColourPop Peekaboo

BIRTHDAY GIRL –  an Ultra Glitter shade that’s light gold with both silver and pink glitter

ColourPop Birthday Girl

ColourPop brush

ColourPop brush

The first winner chosen will receive these three shadows and the brush. The second winner will receive Birthday Girl.

ColourPop Birthday Girl, Cricket and Peekaboo

Masks of the month and a giveaway: Freeman Beauty Infusion

Freeman Beauty Infusion sheet masks

Sheet masks are always a fun treat and Freeman Beauty has created a new line, Freeman Beauty Infusion. The masks in this line cover everything including dehydrated, dry, and uneven skin with their serum infused sheet masks. Their masks contain naturally derived botanicals boosted with scientific ingredients to quickly deliver top skincare benefits!

I was sent 5 different masks ($3.29, $3.19 with Sally Beauty beauty club) to test along with some extras for a giveaway. You can find these masks at Sally Beauty and some at Ulta. All Freeman Beauty Infusion masks —

  • Instantly boost purity, restores balance and clears pores
  • Free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates, and mineral oil
  • NOT tested on animals
  • Dermatologist-Tested

FREEMAN BEAUTY INFUSION Revitalizing Sheet Mask with Pomegranate & Peptides

Revitalizing Sheet Mask with Pomegranate & Peptides is the first of the 5 different types of sheet masks I used from Freeman Beauty. With the promise of instantly boosting radiance and increasing resiliency it totally intrigued me. I applied it shortly after getting out of the shower and left it on for 15 minutes. As suggested I patted the serum onto my face to let it become absorbed and add the benefits to my skin. My email buddy can testify that I wrote her mid day and told her that my face felt so soft that I didn’t want to put on makeup after. I just wanted to feel how soft it was. I caved and applied my face before going out for dinner and did notice the radiance.

Hydrating Sheet Mask with Manuka Honey + Collagen

FREEMAN BEAUTY INFUSION Hydrating Sheet Mask Manuka Honey + Collagen

Manuka Honey is being used more and more in skincare and it’s always a welcome addition. This Freeman Beauty Sheet Mask is another softening mask with the use of the manuka honey. The skin-plumping collagen helps to improve elasticity and restore smoothness.This mask is great for normal to dry skin. Like the other masks recommendations are to leave it on for 15-20 minutes and then allow your skin to benefit from the extra serum infused into the mask. I used this prior to bed one night and woke up to skin that was so hydrated and plump.

Brightening Sheet Mask with Hibiscus and Vitamin C

FREEMAN BEAUTY INFUSION Brightening Sheet Mask Hibiscus + Vitamin C

This masque is recommended for night time use. Here’s what Freeman Beauty Infusion has to say: “Become a modern day sleeping beauty with this concentrated, serum-infused Freeman Beauty Infusion Brightening Hibiscus & Vitamin C Sheet Mask. Boosted with concentrated Vitamin C to help minimize dark spots and correct discoloration. Hibiscus instantly brightens, quenches thirsty skin and improves skin tone. Perfect for all skin types.”

Cleansing Sheet Mask with Charcoal + Probiotics  is the only one of these 5 that isn’t a cotton sheet mask except it really is since it’s a bamboo sheet mask (I wouldn’t have noticed the difference if I wasn’t examining the package). It’s just like the others in the way it applies and the usage.

FREEMAN BEAUTY INFUSION Cleansing Sheet Mask Charcoal + Probiotics

This concentrated serum-infused sheet mask instantly clears pores with activated Charcoal that gently draws out oils and toxins without over-drying. Boosted with powerful skin-balancing Probiotics to reveal a fresh, clear complexion. Perfect for all skin types.

Purifying Sheet Mask with Sea Kelp + Probiotics is similar to the Charcoal mask except that it uses Sea Kelp to renew, hydrate, and clarify skin. This mask is particularly good since the probiotics help to prevent breakouts as it balances the skin’s ecosystem.

FREEMAN BEAUTY INFUSION Purifying Sheet Mask Sea Kelp + Probiotics

While sheet masks aren’t everyone’s favorite because they can seem messy, they really are a great way to try out a mask without spending a lot of money. When I look at an array of masks in a store I like having the option of spending about $3 to test out a mask to see how my skin reacts. I’m happy to have discovered Freeman Beauty Infusion and I’m sure you would be also.  —  Marcia
