Is your guy handy? He needs DU’IT Tough Hands!

DU'IT Tough Hands

DU’IT Tough Hands

I really lucked out in the husband department – he is way more than just a pretty face!! He can cook like a pro and is an incredible athlete. He’s a great father who is just as happy to take his daughter hunting as he is to have a tea party with her. And, he’s a finish carpenter, so any ‘honey-do’ project that I can dream up, he can actually do.  KevinKevin and LisaBut his hands are a mess…calloused, cracked, scratched, often covered with dried glue and who knows what else that causes tons of uncomfortable skin issues. Super tough hand creams that tackle these concerns are always welcome in my house and Kevin was thrilled to try DU’IT Tough Hands ($11.95).

DU'IT Tough Hands

DU’IT Tough Hands

DU’IT Tough Hands is a heavy-duty hand cream that isn’t greasy and has no fragrance. It actually creates a protective ‘glove’ over hands, protecting them from any further damage while also healing any problems that currently exist. This isn’t kid stuff…it’s industrial strength cream that tackles big problems like cracked skin, irritation from latex gloves, even cement!

DU'IT Tough Hands swatch

While it gives immediate gratification, my hubby reports that the best results come with consistency and a little time. He recommends applying it every morning, applying some after washing hands throughout the day if possible, and definitely applying it at night for at least a week. His hands healed and he had amazing results when he used this consistently. The price is terrific for a 5.1 fluid oz. tube.

Ok, I told you to get this for your guy…but seriously, if you have any issues at all with dry cuticles, hangnails, callouses, cracking…you will love DU’IT Tough Hands. It doesn’t have a scent, it’s not all greasy, and it works wonders!!! I see that they do have a version called Tough Hands for Her that I’d love to try, but in the meantime I am totally going to be highjacking the tube that Kevin is using.

Head over to Amazon.com or to CVS and give this a try. Get one for your significant other and be prepared to steal it away every chance you get.  – Lisa

FarmHouse Fresh This Bunny Loves You wins my Makeup Wars battle

This week Makeup Wars chose the topic of favorite scrubs and exfoliators. I thought and thought about what to share and had several choices but FarmHouse Fresh won my heart with THIS BUNNY LOVES YOU Soft Skin Gift Set. When this set was sent everything else flew from my mind and I couldn’t think of anything else that I wanted to share besides this.

FarmHouse Fresh This Bunny Loves You Gift Set

FarmHouse Fresh This Bunny Loves You Gift Set

If you’ve read Beauty Info Zone then you know that FarmHouse Fresh is the brand that changed my mind about fragranced products. Once Lisa talked me into trying their Watermelon Basil Body Scrub I was sold. I’m pretty sure she’s sorry about that because we now have to fight over who is the one who can keep this as part of their bath and body routine.

This Bunny Loves You is a gift set for you or for someone you do love. It would make a great Mother’s Day gift as well. It contains 2 full size products ($36). Inside you’ll find Sweet Cream Fine Body Scrub and Fluffy Bunny Shea Butter Hand Cream plus on the outside you’ll find a great wooden spoon meant to mix the scrub.

FarmHouse Fresh This Bunny Loves You Gift Set

It’s the Sweet Cream body scrub that is the most loved product in this box for me. While FarmHouse Fresh has many products in this fragrance this is the first time I’ve had the pleasure to use it.

FarmHouse Fresh Sweet Cream Fine Body Scrub

FarmHouse Fresh Sweet Cream Fine Body Scrub

Let’s talk about the wonderful scent. It’s reminds me of sugar and cream and everything nice. It’s a sweet fragrance even though it’s a sea salt exfoliator. FarmHouse Fresh scrubs separate in the jar so you need to mix them up which is where the great wooden spoon comes in.

Mix up the fine grain fresh sea salt and rice bran oil and you’re on your way to a lightweight, non-greasy soft feeling. I love this all over my body and it leaves me with a fragrance that lasts throughout the day. You can even use this at your sink to exfoliate your hands and/or feet to keep them soft and smooth.fhf this bunny loves you box info

While Fluffy Bunny Shea Butter Hand Cream doesn’t officially fit in this week’s Makeup Wars it’s worth knowing about. FHF makes several hand creams and Fluffy Bunny fits in perfectly for spring. The scent is described as a Lavender-Mint Julep (Kentucky Derby anyone??).

FarrmHouse Fresh Fluffy Bunny Hand Cream

FarrmHouse Fresh Fluffy Bunny Hand Cream

FarmHouse Fresh Hand Creams are loaded with supple shea and cocoa butter and Vitamin E packed jojoba and soybean oils along with Aloe to help with skin irritation. They are created to help with even super dry skin yet they aren’t greasy. Within minutes of massaging this in you can go about your business.

FarrmHouse Fresh Fluffy Bunny Hand Cream

FarrmHouse Fresh Fluffy Bunny Hand Cream

FarrmHouse Fresh Fluffy Bunny Hand Cream is 96% natural and like all their products are paraben free, sulfate free, and of course cruelty free.

While you can buy these products separately if you are in need of a gift then This Bunny Loves You will win you extra points! If you are like me and love a body scrub then Sweet Cream is going to thrill your body and senses. Can you see why I couldn’t get this out of my mind for Makeup Wars?  —  Marcia

Hands Down the Lauren B brand is superb

Lauren B Polishing Hand Scrub, Cuticle Oil, Nourishing Hand Cream

Lauren B Polishing Hand Scrub, Cuticle Oil, Nourishing Hand Cream

I used to bite my cuticles. It was a tasty snack, had no calories and was always available at my fingertips. It was only when I entered management that I stopped because I couldn’t envision being taken seriously while I was gnawing at my fingers. I went cold turkey with barely a nibble here and there. Although that was many years ago, my cuticles still were ragged and rough. They looked fine right after a manicure but I couldn’t get daily manicures, now could I?

pr samples

I did try various oils and creams over the years but, after a week or so, my cuticles didn’t improve so I just gave up. Then, as luck would have it, I was sent three nail couture products by Lauren B.:  Polishing Hand Scrub, Nourishing Hand Creme, and Cuticle Oil. For 10 days, I used the scrub once daily,  the creme several times a day, and the oil in the evening. And voila, my cuticles are smooth, my nails look healthy and my hands are soft.

Lauren B Cuticle Oil, Polishing Hand Scrub, Nourishing Hand Cream

Lauren B Cuticle Oil, Polishing Hand Scrub, Nourishing Hand Cream

Lauren is the niece of hair-care expert Philip B.  She says: “Our products are proudly made in the U.S.A. and never tested on animals. Everything we create is vegan-friendly and free of harsh chemicals like formaldehyde, DBP, toluene, formaldehyde resin and camphor. For me, everything’s come full circle,” Lauren adds. “As someone who truly believes that nails are the best accessory—and is fanatical on the subject—these are my personal bests, inspired by all things beautiful. I hope they’ll be yours, too!”

Lauren B Polishing Hand Scrub

Lauren B Polishing Hand Scrub

I find the Lauren B Polishing Hand Scrub to be a little grainy so you need to rinse carefully and well. It is pleasantly scented and the fragrance disappears after you rinse. According to the website: 

Our polishing hand scrub contains a proprietary blend of potent anti-aging powerhouses such as: Swiss-derived Apple stem cells (they contain peptides-boosting cell turnover, thickening thin skin, fading age spots, and smoothing crepiness), Aloe OilSunflower Seed Oil and Vitamin E (these brighten, soothe, and heal chapping while also providing anti-pollution benefits. Moreover, our proprietary amino-acid complex strengthens and softens your skin.

The result: A fresher more youthful look for your hands in under a minute!

Lauren B Nourishing Hand Cream

Lauren B Nourishing Hand Cream

The Nourishing Hand Creme is lovely- nicely scented with orchid and peony, it leaves your hands smooth. soft and not slippery.  “A super rich indulgence. Laced with antioxidants, peptides and amino acids, this remarkably non-greasy hydrator leaves hands ridiculously smooth and soft. A special delivery system ensures that moisturizing agents sink in fast to plump and soothe for hours. And the heavenly orchid and peony scent alone will make you want a lifetime supply.” says Lauren’s website.  How true.

Lauren B Cuticle Oil

Lauren B Cuticle Oil

And now the Cuticle Oil which I adore and which I think is making the biggest difference in my nails and cuticles. “Our custom blend of 12 ultra-pure plant, nut and flower oils designed to quickly hydrate your dry cuticles. Also, it is packed with amino-acids promoting healing and revival. Apply with our convenient brush applicator so you can take as little or as much as you need – no mess! We love Olive Fruit Oil, Peanut Oil, Sesame Oil, Walnut Seed Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil, Lavender Oil, and Geranium Flower Oil.” 

Lauren B Cuticle Oil

Lauren B Cuticle Oil

Lauren B has worked with Sky Hadley, owner of As U Wish Nail Salon and is sharing these cuticle tips

  • Always use a cuticle oil/cream. Having dry, scraggly cuticles is not a good look and may even make you want to pick them, which can lead to a bacterial infection. Using a cuticle oil can make your manicure last longer. Keeping the nail beds and areas around your nails moisturized will make the nail polish stay in place longer. A cuticle oil is a great way to make a two day old manicure look like you just walked out of the salon
  • If you don’t have cuticle oil or cream available, you can use anything from your kitchen! Olive oil, baby oil, or even Vaseline are quick go-to solutions
  • NEVER cut your cuticles, they should only be pushed back. Cuticles are designed to protect your fingers from infections, and bacteria. You should only cut the dry skin around the nail and not the actual cuticles themselves

I will order these three items when I run out and want to try her nail polish next because: Lauren B. is good to me. And will be good to you.  –  guest post by Phyllis

T’zikal Beauty Hand Lotion and Hand Balm – which do you want to win in this giveaway?

tzikal logo

If this logo and brand sound familiar it’s because Beauty Info Zone has reviewed a line of haircare from T’zikal Beauty.

T’zikal developed their products using their main ingredient, Ojon oil, from Hondurus. After learning about ancient beauty rituals from Central America they found that what they most admired was their beautiful hair. They used natural, simple and high quality ingredients to develop their hair care. What attracted us to T’zikal     is that they don’t do animal testing, are free of parabens, artificial colors, fragrances and days.

The name T’zikal (pronounced Tee-Zee-Cal) means sanctified or blessed in the Mayan language. Their remarkable main ingredient, Ojon Oil, comes from the Palm Nut Tree which produces up to 8,000 nuts per tree, yet once refined those 8,000 nuts create just 3 cups of pure oil. Just a small amount of Ojon Oil seals the hair cuticle for optimal radiance and extraordinary shine.

Now let’s learn about another group of products that T’zikal sent us for review and for a giveaway.tzikal-hand-giveaway

T’zikal Beauty uses their main ingredient, Ojon Oil, in their Moisture Protect Hand Balm and Hand Lotion. That’s what makes these two so moisturizing and why you are going to want to use these yourself.

T'zikal Moisture Protect Hand Lotion

T’zikal Moisture Protect Hand Lotion

T’ZIKAL MOISTURE PROTECT HAND LOTION ($20, 2.5 fl oz) is a lightweight lotion that absorbs quickly but adds moisture instantly. The number of healthy oils used in this lotion are extraordinary yet you won’t notice an oily feeling on your hands. I find it easy to go about my business instantly after applying. This is the product you want for a great everyday hand cream.

T'zikal Hand cream ingredients

T’zikal Hand cream ingredients

Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, Elaeis Oleifera Kernel Oil, Stearic Acid,  Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract, Pectin, Chlorella Vulgaris/Lupinus Albus Protein Ferment, Isoamyl Laurate, Crambe Abyssinica Seed Oil, Stearyl Alcohol, Dimethicone, Tocopherol, Potassium Cetyl Phosphate, Hydrogenated Palm Glycerides, Cetyl Alcohol, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Hibiscus Sabdari?a Flower Extract, Ribes Grossularia Fruit Extract, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Extract, Sodium Hydroxide, Sodium Phytate, Citrus Bergamia (Bergamot Oil), Apium Graveolens (Celery Seed Oil), Cinnamomum Camphora (Ho Wood), Lavandula Hydrida Grosso (Lavandin Grosso) Herb Oil, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender), Citrus Sinesis (Orange), Citrus Aurantium (Petigrain Oil) Leaf Oil, Cananga Odorata (Ylang Ylang)

T’ZIKAL INTENSE MOISTURE HAND BALM ($20, 2.5 oz) is the big sister of the Hand Lotion. The two of these look exactly the same and feel almost the same when you squeeze some out. But there’s a difference. This hand balm is meant for people who need extra moisture for hands that are more stressed. In the warmer weather I find that the Hand Lotion gives me the protection I need but come winter I’ll be switching to the Hand Balm.

T'zikal Beauty Intense Moisture Hand Balm

T’zikal Beauty Intense Moisture Hand Balm

The Intense Moisture Hand Balm is a richer cream that is great for dry and/or chapped skin.

Let me remind you about two things: 1) There is a slight herbal fragrance to these that lasts for a short while. 2) Even though these are called “hand” they can be used on feet too. Or knees, or elbows, or anywhere on your body you feel you need extra moisture. Is this a category that you need help with? I know I do.  — Marcia

GIVEAWAY INFORMATION: Our T’zikal Hand Lotion/Balm giveaway is open to US and Canadian subscribers through Monday, 10/24/16 at 11:59 p.m. ET. Two musts: be an email subscriber and comment. Without those two if your name is chosen you’ll be eliminated. Once you’ve done those you have more options in the Rafflecopter to help you win.
