Inside the beautifully feminine packaging are three hand-cut, hand-poured soaps that feature lavender essential oil and a wooden soap dish. What makes lavender oil perfect for moms? It’s known to ease tension, insomnia, stress and even headaches. That sounds like a dream come true for pretty much every mom  I have ever met!!                                                                     PR sample

In addition to the soothing and relaxing lavender essential oil, each soap has a unique botanical blend. The Oatmeal Lavender Soap is made with 100% organic olive oil. The oatmeal is fabulous for dry and sensitive skin and this is a perfect soap for those who love working in their garden. This soap has the lightest scent of the three, with the earthy oatmeal balancing out the floral lavender.

The Lavender Lime Soap is an intriguing combination of scents. This gorgeously green olive oil soap is a refreshing blend of citrus and floral, great for a guest bathroom since men and women will love it.

The third soap in the lavender-ific trio is the Rose Tangerine Lavender Soap.   What a fabulously unique blend! The rose geranium and tangerine essentials oils are very beneficial for extremely dry skin and this soap is so gentle it can even be used on the face (if scent is ok with you…these soaps are very fragranced).

I am in love with the totally zen bamboo wood soap dish that is included in the set – I feel peaceful just looking at it!  The slats mean the soap dries faster so it won’t cake up. Instead, the bar stays beautiful and lasts longer.

Reviva Labs new Vitamin C+ serum with Emblica – review and giveaway

logo_reviva-blkIf you’ve been hanging around Beauty Info Zone for any amount of time you’ll know that we are big fans of Reviva Labs. For over forty years Reviva Labs has brought us wonderful cruelty-free skin care that use natural ingredients. But they don’t stand on their record which is proved by their new improved ULTRA POTENCY VITAMIN C+ ANTIOXIDANT SERUM WITH EMBLICA.

The BIZ ladies were each sent a bottle of this in anticipation of Reviva Lab’s 43rd Anniversary and we’re excited that they are offering 2 US subscribers the chance to win one to celebrate our anniversary too.

REVIVA LABS ULTRA POTENCY VITAMIN C+ ANTIOXIDANT SERUM WITH EMBLICA

REVIVA LABS ULTRA POTENCY VITAMIN C+ ANTIOXIDANT SERUM WITH EMBLICA

ULTRA POTENCY VITAMIN C+ ANTIOXIDANT SERUM WITH EMBLICA does so many things that are good for your skin and we’ll be talking about them but let us first talk about Emblica which is their newest ingredient and one Reviva Labs is excited to be using in this serum. Emblica is from the Indian Gooseberry plant; it attacks both oxygen and nitrogen free radicals. Other plant antioxidants are added to this by Reviva including Sunflower, Blueberry, Cranberry, Fig and Aloe extracts. But the most important of these ingredients is Emblica. This unique ingredient has a longer life than other antioxidants thereby protecting us for the entire day.

Indian Gooseberry (Emblica is derived from this)

Indian Gooseberry (Emblica is derived from this)

It helps to fight pollution, help with skin discoloration, wrinkles and collagen loss. This super antioxidant is great for those of us who need and want anti-aging skin care.

Marcia and Reviva Labs Ultra Potency Vitamin C+ Antioxidant Serum with emblica:

The first thing I noticed about Reviva Lab’s improved serum is that it has no fragrance whatsoever. I know many people enjoy the lift that a fragranced product can give them but I don’t happen to be one of those people. Therefore I can use this Vitamin C+ Antioxidant Serum day and night without concern.

Lisa and I reviewed the original Alpha Lipoic Acid, Vitamin C Ester & DMAE Cream way back in April of 2012 so it’s fitting that 4 years later we’ve had the opportunity to try the new improved version. This is loaded with so many more terrific ingredients like Vitamin E, CoQ 10, Superoxide Dismutase (SOD), and more. We love the airless pump that protects the serum from light, bacteria, and air. The potency remains the same through the life of the product.

Reviva Labs Vitamin C+ Antioxidant Serum with Emblica

Reviva Labs Vitamin C+ Antioxidant Serum with Emblica

The result I’m seeing for the weeks I’ve been using this serum is brighter skin. My skin looks and feels softer, less lined, and brighter. I was in a group discussion about the effects of Vitamin C prior to receiving this and I wasn’t able to tell people what I saw but I can now. But Reviva Labs is more than just Vitamin C since emblica raises it to a new level.

Reviva Labs Vitamin C+ Antioxidant Serum with Emblica

Reviva Labs Vitamin C+ Antioxidant Serum with Emblica

The first product I apply after cleansing is this serum. I massage it onto my face and give my skin time to absorb all the goodness that this brings. After my eyes are done I apply my moisturizer/SPF. I love that this never balls up under foundation. I recently gave up on a serum that did so it was one I could only use at night but Reviva Labs came through, as usual, and makes it a breeze to look my best.

Lisa and Reviva Labs Ultra Potency Vitamin C+Antioxidant Serum with emblica:

Reviva Labs Ultra Potency Vitamin C+Antioxidant Serum with emblica

I love a bargain…and at just $32, this very effective Vitamin C serum is definitely a bargain. The Ultra-Potency Vitamin C serum is not just an antioxidant fighting off free radicals, it also neutralizes nitrogen free radicals. Nitrogen is the nasty stuff in the air from soot, pollution, traffic exhaust…you know, the gunk that turns white snow into gray ick.

Even teenagers need the Reviva Labs Ultra Potency Vitamin C+Antioxidant Serum with emblica

Even teenagers need the Reviva Labs Ultra Potency Vitamin C+Antioxidant Serum with emblica

I am impressed with the addition of Emblica to the already fantastic ingredient list. Emblica is a perfect partner with the Vitamin C for combating pollution and car exhaust. Ultimately, this doesn’t just mean less wrinkles – it means less skin cancer. That is something to really get excited about. It’s never too late to start, but just think what it could mean if teenagers started using this serum under their sunscreen and makeup or just by itself? My teens are getting a bottle and I am starting them on this regimen immediately.

NailMates Finger Mates

NailMates Finger Mates

Yes, another Beauty Info Zone giveaway!!  A few months ago I reviewed the fabulous NailMates Finger Mates ($14), a polish removal system that works for fingernails, toes, glitter polish, and even removing gel nails. You can read the full review HERE.  So many of our readers were intrigued by it we asked to have a giveaway with two winners! What’s also intriguing is that Sally’s Beauty has repackaged them and sells them under the ASP brand. They are the same so when you go to Sally’s looking for NailMates you’ll find ASP.

Nailmates

NailMates Finger Mates are reusable finger caps that hold removal pads. Soak the pads with acetone then slip them on – they work on both fingers and toes (there are larger toe size sets available). The cap keeps the pads in place, and the pressure from the cap eliminates the need to sit still since there is direct contact. The caps also keep in body heat, which speeds up the process.  Some other benefits:
  • The re-usable one size fits all NailMate caps are QUICK and EASY to apply.
  • NailMate caps completely cover the removal pads. This protect the acetone from exposure to air which can result in pre-mature acetone evaporation.
  • Contrary to cotton products, NailMate pads are extremely absorbent and provide consistent and even distribution of the acetone across the entire nail.
  • NailMate removal pads, used with the caps, are so efficient that there is virtually little (light if at all) to no scrapping of residual polish from nails.
  • NailMate removal pads do not drip acetone.
  • Pads are oversized and match the NailMate caps. This insures the pad completely covers the nail top to bottom and from side to side. The caps hold the pads in place as fingers slide under the pad and into cap.
  • Removal pads are a proprietary formula. Removal pads can be rinsed and reused if sterilization is not required. Terrific value!

Whatever your pleasure – glitter, holo, crelly, or just plain old polish, NailMates are an easy, mess-free way to deal with the removal process.  I know you want a set, so why not enter our giveaway? Your nails will love you for it!  – Lisa

GIVEAWAY INFORMATION:  Two Beauty Info Zone subscribers will win one set of 10 reusable NailMates. This is open for continental US only through April 28, 2016 at 11:59 eastern time.

That makes them perfect for travel and for testing out to see which ones are best for you. 7th Heaven makes dozens of masks so there’s surely one or more to suit your needs.

GREEN TEA PEEL-OFF

7th Heaven Green Tea Peel-Off Mask

Using the Green Tea Peel Off Mask is a lot like being a kid again! After your detoxifying treatment you get the delight of peeling this off like we used to do with rubber cement (do people still use rubber cement??). This is a weekly mask that is for all skin types. Ingredients are all natural and are great for exfoliating skin to remove dirt, oil, and dead skin cells. This contains Pressed Green Tea with natural anti-oxidants, ginger root to boost your skin’s radiance and lemon to refresh, tone and rejuvenate. The fragrance of it is quite refreshing. After wearing this for 15-20 minutes the fun begins and you get to peel it off. (Note: 7th Heaven is a division of Montagne Jeunesse, names and packaging are slowly being updated.)

CHARCOAL PORE STRIPS

7th Heaven Charcoal Nose Pore Strips

I have a confession to make about the Charcoal Nose Pore Strips! My pictures shows me wearing it backwards since that’s what I did the first time. I was so excited to use this since I love this type of strip that I put it on wrong. When it didn’t quite work correctly I redid it but forgot to take pictures of wearing it correctly. Oops.

7th Heaven Charcaol Nose Pore Strips

7th Heaven Charcaol Nose Pore Strips

These are sold at Claire’s stores for $2.50. The package contains 3 Pore Strips. Since our noses seem to be magnets for oil and show blackheads easily this is a fast and easy way to cleanse them. Make sure your cleansed nose is very wet, apply them with the charcoal layer DOWN, and press onto your nose firmly. The charcoal absorbs that excess oil while loosening any problems. Peel it off and you’ve remove dead cells along with the debris. They contain volcanic ash and natural hardwood charcoal. In 10 – 15 minutes you’ve got a nose that is clear and ready for your skincare.

HOT SPRINGS SAUNA MASQUE

7th Heaven Hot Springs Sauna Masque

This is a fun and unusual masque since it heats up to activate the ingredients. The ingredients in the Hot Springs Sauna Masque are what makes it unusual: Volcanic Spring Minerals, chopped Ginger and pulped Pumpkin. It also contains Bamboo to help exfoliate and remove your dead cells. By warming up once on your skin it opens your pores for a deeper cleanse. ($1.99 at Ulta and Walmart)

RED HOT EARTH SAUNA MASQUE

7th Heaven Red Hot Earth Sauna Masque

A red masque adds a bit of spice to your life and this Red Hot Earth Sauna Masque is red at its finest. This mask is similar in some ways to the Hot Spring Sauna Masque since they both have self heating therapy. This one is meant for normal to dry skin and is a great destressing mask. The once a week mask has rich red clay, pressed jasmine and the juice of grapefruit and lime (anti-oxidants). It leaves your skin more moisturized than Hot Spring Sauna does. It doesn’t dry on my skin so in the 15 minutes that it’s on, I can talk if I want. I may look red but I’m not seeing red when I’m done.

STRAWBERRY SOUFFLE MASK

7th Heaven Strawberry Souffle Mask

Yummy hydration that you won’t want to remove. The Strawberry Souffle Mask smells so delicious with its mix of natural ingredients and is the only one of this group that is recommended for twice a week. This $2.50 mask (sold at Claire’s stores) is a treat for my skin. This is recommended for drier skin so it fits me perfectly. Some of the ingredients are bentonite natural clay, aloe vera, pulped strawberries, and vanilla. Your skin will feel smoother and more refreshed after using this for about 15 minutes. This light pink mask will keep your skin looking in the pink.  — Marcia
