Be a Savvy Traveler with me and win this giveaway

It doesn’t matter where you are going, you are going to want some SAVVY TRAVELERS with you. It can be as simple as going on a hike, to yoga or the gym, or as complicated as going on an overseas journey. Savvy Travelers is going to make your life a whole lot easier and your travels much more convenient.

Savvy Travelers


I don’t even know where to begin with the great selection of products they have. So far I’ve used these when I moved since I knew it was going to take me forever to unpack and organize my life. (I’m still not unpacked or organized but I’m closer!) I packed a small duffle with what I needed for two days as far as clothing, medication, and life necessities. Savvy Traveler was in that duffle and helped me get over the bump. Next it’s going on a true vacation that we are in the midst of planning.

Most important, what is Savvy Traveler? It’s a company that produces individually wrapped products for your life. Whether it’s deodorant, skincare, feminine hygiene, or camera/phone cleansing you’ll find it at Savvy Traveler. The packets are thin and small enough to drop into your jeans pocket, your handbag, or any place you can tuck things in. They are perfect for airplane travel since they aren’t liquids and you can easily take them with you plus they are biodegradable.

Savvy Travelers Getaway Kit

The Getaway Kit is a wonderful way to start and what I’d have packed except that I’m giving two kits away! This contains 12 packets in a great reusable plastic bag: 2 each of Klean Upz, Lift Offz, Take Offz, Speak Eazy, No Sweat, and Bottomz Up.

Savvy Travelers Getaway Kit

In other words:

Klean Upz is an antibacterial hand & body wipe. These are great for every sticky situation especially.

Lift Offz for nail polish removal. This has enough remover to do your entire manicure with just one wipe.

Speak Eazy: a tooth, lip, & mouth cleansing wipe. How great to have after you wake up on a plane and have that awful taste in your mouth and worry about your breath!

Take Offz is an all in one facial wipe that not only removes your makeup but is great for oil and dirt. Stick one in your pocket when you are out walking!

No Sweat is a terrific antiperspirant & deodorant wipe. These have an invisible formula and help freshen you easily. Believe me, these work!

Bottomz Up is a “booty bidet wipe”. This cleanses and refreshes. I’m sure many single ladies will appreciate these as well as the rest of us.

Savvy Travelers Getaway Kit

Another kit to consider is the Jet Set Kit which contains 4 of each No Sweat, In The Klear (lens, camera and screen wipes), Take Offz, and Speak Eazy.

Savvy Travelers Jet Set Kit

Savvy Travelers Wipez Wallet

I love the Red Carpet Ready Kit. It’s a refillable wallet (Wipez Wallet Organizer) that contains 2 each of

  • Speak Eazy mouth cleansing and breath freshening wipes
  • Take Offz facial cleansing, moisturizing and makeup removing wipes
  • No Sweat antiperspirant and deodorant wipes
  • Klean Upz antibacterial hand and body wipes
  • In The Klear lens, screen and camera cleaning wipes
  • Bottomz Up booty bidet cleansing and moisturizing wipes

    Savvy Travelers Wipez Wallet with packets

You can even buy the wallet separately and fill it as you wish considering that Savvy Travelers sells a variety of 10 packs

Savvy Travelers even has a Wipeaholics monthly subscription that is customizable with 40 wipes each month for $20 a month. I’m planning on doing this for a few months in preparation for my 3 week winter trip. I want to be prepared. You can stop it when you want but the good part besides the great price is that I can pick what I want each time. I know I’m going with No Sweat, Kleen Upz, Speak Eazy, and Take Offz. Use and toss is the way for me to pack light and have room for my shopping habits!

Savvy Travelers Liquid Courage kit

Savvy Travelers has many other reasons to like them. You don’t need water with these since they don’t need to be washed off. It’s made in California using clean, renewable solar energy. They are cruelty free, FSC / Rainforest Alliance certified, EPA Green Power Partner approved, paraben free, and carry-on friendly & TSA compliant. — Marcia

Now for a giveaway! Savvy Travelers was nice enough to send three kits for Beauty Info Zone subscribers. I have 2 of the Getaway Kits and 1 Liquid Courage Kit (contains 2 each of Klean Upz, Bottoms Up, Klean Offz, and Lift Offz plus I’ll add 4 extras). This is open for US only and you must subscribe by email. If I can’t find your sub then bye bye Felicia!! The giveaway is open through 8/23/17 at 11:59 p.m. EDT.

Peel & Polish with Pixi and this skintreat giveaway

samplesaffiliate links

Peel & Polish from Pixi Skintreats

As much as I love everything Pixi there are items I can’t use because the fragrance doesn’t agree with me. I read rave after rave about Pixi Skintreats and can appreciate their effectiveness but they don’t last long in my routine. But (and it’s a big but) today I can tell you that I’m in love with a Pixi Skintreat item. Of course it has no fragrance which is a big part of it but the bigger part is how wonderful my skin looks and feels after I use it.

It’s no surprise that I’m talking about Pixi Skintreats Peel & Polish but it will come as a surprise that I’m willing to give any up for a giveaway. This enzyme concentrate has blown me away.

Peel & Polish from Pixi Skintreats

Peel & Polish doesn’t take much time – maybe 3 minutes at most – but it looks like you spent ages on perfecting your skin. I find it to be a mild skin peel that doesn’t make my skin look rough or red after. I can use this in the morning and not worry about applying makeup after. I can use this at night and not worry about it reacting with my other skincare items.

Peel & Polish

It applies as a light yellow cream with small exfoliators in it. It starts to dry pretty quickly but not in an uncomfortable way. It just feels drier. Leave it on for 2 minutes for the peel to start working. It’s up to you whether you massage it onto your skin for 30 seconds after but I always do that so I can get the most out of the treatment.

Pixi Skintreats Peel & Polish

What are the ingredients that make this so wonderful?

Peel & Polish from Pixi Skintreats

The natural enzymes help loosen dead cells, the sugar cane extract polishes your skin, and lactic acid exfoliates. This is seriously good stuff. It contains 6% Lactic Acid and Papaya. You can use this 2 to 3 times a week if you want. I’ve been using it twice a week since I use so many masks but otherwise I’d use it three times.

No fragrance, 3 minutes, affordable, soft and exfoliated skin that feels great for days. What more could I want?  —  Marcia

There are 3 types of lip products that Eddie has created: Chromographic Lipsticks (Saturate lips with vibrant hues and light reflecting particles for a creamy finish and eye-catching multi-dimensional effects. The color collection ranges from neutrals to brights for a subtle or stand-out pout. Lips stay hydrated and nourished with flower and mango fruit extracts and Vitamins C & E.), Hyperreal Nourishing Lip Color (Update the classic lipstick with intense pigments, a boost of hydration, and a lightweight yet luxurious finish. The creamy formula is enriched with flower and mango fruit extracts and Vitamins C & E to keep lips looking luscious long after application.), and Hyperreal Hydrating Lip Gloss (A lightweight, low-tack formula that provides a brilliant, color-rich, multidimensional finish to lips in universal shades. Vitamins A, C & E nourish and brighten and Aloe Vera moisturizes and soothes.).

Today we have the Hyperreal Nourishing Lip Color and Hydrating Lip Gloss to introduce you to but you’ll also have a chance to win the Chromographic Lip Color too.


Eddie Funkhouser Hyperreal Nourishing Lip Colors

There are 6 lipsticks in the Hyperreal Nourishing Lip Color line, 3 warm and 3 cool shades. These are what I think lipsticks should look like and feel like. They are definitely nourishing so the name is apt. They have a shiny look so lines aren’t emphasized. No they aren’t matte, which is the rage now, but I’d rather have comfort personally than a lipstick that looks dry on me but is considered hot. As a moisturizing lipstick they last on me about 4 hours which is a happy amount of time.

Let’s check out all these colors:

Eddie Funkhouser Hyperreal Nourishing Lip Colors in Ignition, Quiet Riot and Rumor

At first when I opened these I was sure that Ignition would be my favorite but I’m so drawn to Quiet Riot that it surprises me. Ignition is a beautiful cherry red and the truest red in this group. Quiet Riot is also a beautiful red but one that leans more purple while Rumor is a deep dark red that is siren like. I’m surprised how much I like both of the red ones but they are bright and striking.

Eddie Funkhouser Hyperreal Nourishing Lip Colors in Innuendo, Model Citizen and Foxy Brown

Eddie Funkhouser Hyperreal Nourishing Lip Colors in Innuendo, Model Citizen and Foxy Brown sort of look alike in my photos taken in indoor light but they are really uniquely different. Innuendo is my kind of color, it’s a great nude that looks especially good on me with pinky peach blush. Again I was surprised with Model Citizen since I normally only go for the lightest shades but Model Citizen kicks the nude up a notch and looks like I actually have real lipstick on! Foxy Brown is a truer brown shade.

I’m happy to recommend these lipsticks which are only $11.99 and provide fragrance free color, moisture and beauty for your lips. You won’t be able to resist them.


Eddie Funkhouser Hyperreal Hydrating Lip Gloss

I am a lip gloss girl.  I love the ease of lip gloss.  I need some slip on my lips and I always want a little color even if I am just kicking around the house.  Eddie Funkhouser’s Hyperreal Hydrating Lip Glosses range from barely there shades to totally there, and they give lots of slip without any sticky yuck that can ruin a good lip gloss.  The formula is truly lovely because it includes vitamins A, C, and E to nourish lips, as well as aloe vera to keep lips super hydrated and soft.

If you have pigmented lips, you can wear Broadway Babe and Meow Meow by themselves.  If you are like me and you don’t, then these goes beautifully over lip liner or matte lipstick.  All the other shades have enough pigment to stand on their own.  My favorites are Mirror Kisses and Belle du Jour…but honestly all the shades are beautiful!!
