Spring for makeup with Meijer (and a giveaway)

cosmetics and skincare from Meijer #MeijerBeauty

cosmetics and skincare from Meijer #MeijerBeauty

The other day Lisa wrote about many of the products that you can happily purchase at Meijer. She included things like haircare, vitamins, deodorant, and items to care for your teeth. Meijer is an amazing store and one that my family spends a lot of time and money at. Their prices are great so we stock up on staples all the time. Best prices in town on pop (or soda depending on where you live), cereal and canned goods. But when I go to Meijer I have a secret mission – the beauty department! I love browsing their beauty department, especially the end caps where the newest collections are often hanging out.                                         press samples



As the season is changing so are the cosmetics that I’m eager to use. Here’s an idea of what’s available now and later you’ll see what you can win.

Yes to facial wipes

Yes to facial wipes

YES TO is a favorite brand in all its fruits and veggies! Yes To Carrots, Yes To Coconut, Yes To Blueberries, Yes To Cucumbers, and the list goes on. Facial wipes are wonderful products that have changed our cleansing especially on the nights we’re in a hurry. Two of the many types are Yes to Cucumbers Soothing Wipes and Yes to Tomatoes Clear Skin Wipes. Yes to Cucumbers Soothing Wipes are hypoallergenic ones that contain aloe. I’ve gone through several packages of these over the years and always found them refreshing and practical. New to me is Yes To Tomatoes Clear Skin Wipes which are detoxifying charcoal facial wipes. This one is meant for oily skin with charcoal being able to deep clean and detoxify.

Biore Deep Cleansing Pore Strips

Biore Deep Cleansing Pore Strips

Biore Deep Cleansing Pore Strips absolutely fascinate me. I’ve been using these for as long as I can remember. These are the original version and Meijer has these and some of the newest ones. I love a weekly ritual of using the strips on my nose and then studying it when it comes off (c’mon, you do that too!).

L'Oreal Pure Clay Masks

L’Oreal Pure Clay Masks

L’Oreal has finally come out with masks. I’ve read a lot about these but haven’t had the chance before to try them. The two newest masks are the Pure-Clay Masks which you can find easily at Meijer in their beauty aisles. There are 3 types of Pure-Clay Masks: Detox & Brighten, Exfoliate & Refine Pores, and Purify & Mattify. I’m anxious to use these more and write about them for a Masks of the Month article.

L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Glow

L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Glow

Also new for March is their Infallible Pro-Glow foundation with Broad Spectrum SPF15. It’s available in 11 shades and Meijer carries them all. It’s a medium coverage with a glowy finish. Infallible Pro-Glow foundation is recommended for normal and dry skin. I have shade 202 which is called Creamy Natural, a good match for my fair skin. There’s not a scent so this is going to get a lot of use. I’m wearing it as I type and it wears beautifully throughout the day. It’s a keeper.

Revlon Ultra HD Gel, L'Oreal Infallible Lip Paints, CoverGirl Outlast

Revlon Ultra HD Gel, L’Oreal Infallible Lip Paints, CoverGirl Outlast

If it’s new then you’ll find it at Meijer. Three brands that they carry (out of dozens) are Revlon, L’Oreal, and CoverGirl. This spring the trend is vibrant colors and these brands have just that. The newest product from Revlon is their Ultra HD Gel Lipcolor. There are 15 shades of this hydrating lip color that contains hyaluronic acid. L’Oreal Infallible Lip Paints are drugstore versions of the many vibrant liquid lipsticks available. These get rave reviews. CoverGirl Outlast All Day Color & Gloss is another new for spring lip product. This two sided tube has a lipstick base and a matching gloss.

Covergirl TruNaked palette in Jewels

Covergirl TruNaked palette in Jewels

Covergirl’s newest TruNaked palette is Jewels and it’s a jewel of a palette. I wear my neutral TruNaked palette all the time because of the amazing quality. This one is bright and vibrant, perfect for the season.

Physician's Formula Highlight & Contour Palette

Physician’s Formula Highlight & Contour Palette

If you are keeping up with what’s hot in the cosmetic world then you know that Physican’s Formula’s newest products are getting raves from everyone. With highlighting and contouring buzz words it makes a lot of sense that PF has this Bronze Booster palette. Glowy shades of highlighters and bronzers.

L'Oreal Infallible Mechanical Eyeliner and Cover Girl So Lashy BlastPRO mascara

L’Oreal Infallible Mechanical Eyeliner and Cover Girl So Lashy BlastPRO mascara

Your look wouldn’t be complete without mascara and eyeliner and Meijer has those for you including L’Oreal Infallible Mechanical Eyeliner and Covergirl So Lashy BlastPRO mascara. This is Covergirl’s newest mascara and it has a lash finder at the end to give you some bold sexy lashes.

Now that you’ve seen some of the goodies you can find at Meijer let’s talk about the giveaway. These are all products that were sent to showcase spring beauty at Meijer. This is open to US and Canada subscribers and includes 5 lip colors (Revlon Ultra HD Gel in Vineyard, Covergirl Outlast All Day Color & Gloss in Rich Chestnut, L’Oreal Infallible paints in Nude Star, Spicy Blush and Sultry Sangria), the L’oreal black eyeliner, Covergirl’s BlastPRO mascara, Covergirl Jewel eyeshadow palette, and the Physican’s Formula highlighter/contour palette.

Cleaning up with Good Earth Beauty (and a giveaway)


You’ve read about Good Earth Beauty several times on Beauty Info Zone. This is a brand that we are always happy to receive for articles and even happier to use. The Good Earth Beauty site is one that sells brands that are both natural and organic and in addition they’ve created their own brand which has all that goodness. Today we have a few bath and body products to share with you and also a giveaway.


Shower Whip is an exfoliating whip that is also a soap. It’s available in 5 scrumptious fragrances: Flower Cart, Pink Lemonade, Chocolate Amour, Coconut Lime, and Lavender Vanilla.

Good Earth Beauty Shower Whip in Flower Cart

Good Earth Beauty Shower Whip in Flower Cart

They are available in 12 oz tubs and all contain natural ingredients. I was sent a smaller size to test out. What I’ve found is that it’s gentle enough for both my face and body.


Organic RAW Shea Butter, Virgin Coconut Oil, Organic Sunflower Oil, Vegetable Stearic Acid, Vegetable Glycerin, Powdered Volcanic Ash, Vitamin E, Grapeseed Oil, Natural fragrance and essential oils.

Good Earth Beauty Shower Whip

Good Earth Beauty Shower Whip

Flower Cart is the one I have and the one that our giveaway winner will be receiving. The Good Earth Beauty description says it all: “Flower Cart Scent Description – Filled with the delightful and perfectly balanced aromas of blooming tulips, heavenly frangipani, purple hyacinth, exotic orchid and sweet lily of the valley.”

Good Earth Beauty Shower Whip

Good Earth Beauty Shower Whip

The granules in the whip are very subtle which I think is best for my skin. I want to add moisture to my skin, not remove it with harshness. It washes off well with either my hands or a wash cloth leaving a subtle scent behind. This isn’t a sugar scrub or a salt scrub, instead I believe the granules are from the powdered volcanic ash. Since it contains shea butter along with oils it’s a good moisturizing scrub that only strips away the dead skin and leaves behind softness.


This is one of those times I really wish our blog had a ‘scratch and sniff’ feature. The super scrumptious strawberry scent for both the Strawberry Margarita Body Wash ($18) and the Strawberry Lip Scrub ($8.25) is out of this world. These can be purchased separately, or – even better – together. The 8 0z. bottle of body wash and a 1 oz. jar of lip scrub set goes for just $20, a really terrific value.

Good Earth Beauty Strawberry Margarita Body WashThe Strawberry Margarita Body Wash is a very hydrating wash that scrubs up to a soft foam. It has some great ingredients, including organic milk and honey, that make it a very soothing soap that works for sensitive skin. The scent is a combination of fresh lime and ripe strawberry, along with just a hint of lemon. I am not kidding when I say that it smells INCREDIBLY delicious. It isn’t sugary sweet like some strawberry fragrances.  It’s more of a grown up take – I guess maybe that’s good since it’s modeled after an alcoholic drink – yet it will still take you back to your childhood and soft summer days picking ripe, juicy strawberries.  Good Earth Beauty Strawberry Lip ScrubGood Earth Beauty inside Strawberry Lip ScrubAnother mouth-watering scent can be found in the Strawberry Lip Scrub. It smells and tastes so darn good (the taste I am sure thanks to the sugar that puts the scrub into the product). A tiny scoop of the sugary scrub with a bit of water makes for a delicious exfoliating treatment for lips that leaves them plump and perfect. So yummy I really can’t get enough. All of Good Earth Beauty products have no parabens, pesticides, petroleum, propylene glycol, phthalates, sulfates, or artificial colors, and they are handmade with love in the USA.


GIVEAWAY INFORMATION: Good Earth Beauty is offering their Shower Whip in Flower Cart along with the Strawberry Lip Scrub to one US BIZ subscriber. This giveaway is open through 3/13/17 at 11:59 p.m. EST. If our comment section closes please email us your comment to beautyinfozone@gmail.com and label it Good Earth.
