Dehydrated or stressed skin? Then Lace Your Face with this mask by Dermovia

dermovia mask

When you love using a face mask then you want to try out a variety of types. Why not try one that is not only effective but pretty at the same time? Dermovia makes LACE YOUR FACE MASKS that do that for you. You just don’t look as scary wearing this full face mask. But what’s important is that this really works. Dermovia has 3 current “flavors” of Lace Your Face masks with more coming soon so it will be hard to choose which one you want to use. I was sent the Calming Chamomile to try and let me tell you it’s a winner.

What’s unique about this mask is that it fits your face like a glove. You can just lay it on if you want and go relax for 15 minutes or you can apply it properly like the photo shows. There are holes for ears and there is a bottom flap that you can fold up into the ear folds so that you can walk around and do what you need to without taking extra time from your day.

This is before I got my ears in the proper slots but you can see how nice looking this mask is.

I’ve used the same mask twice. First time I wrapped it around my ears as directed and was able to compute. Second time I wanted my neck to get some of this juicy goodness so I laid down and left the flap on my neck and not just on my chin. Both times I felt refreshed, hydrated and glowing. The ingredients are excellent and I found there wasn’t a fragrance with this.

From Dermovia about Calming Chamomile: “This highly enriched formulation contains an effective yet gentle complex of minerals sourced from deep within the seawaters of Tahiti. These natural ingredients instantly provide soothing and calming nourishment by combining botanically derived Squalene, Apple Stem Cell, and Dew Grass Extract. This luxurious skin normalizing treatment provides essential nutrients that are necessary to restore pH balance and maintain healthy skin. In addition, Chamomile provides superior strengthening and reparative properties that visibly soften and protect the skin from future imbalances.”

Now tell me you don’t want to be soothed, balanced, repaired, non-irritated and without stress on your face. I’m sure you can’t. Be sure you save the outer wrapper since this can be used one more time. I put it back in the package, sealed it tightly and was able to use it again. I also didn’t need to follow with a serum after using this since the ingredients are a serum that includes hyaluronic acid.

There’s more…. you can use this one of three ways! Straight out of the package, keep it in the fridge for a wonderful cooling sensation and to help close pores or heat up the closed package in a bowl of hot water for a true spa facial feeling.

If this doesn’t sound like it’s up your alley how about trying one of the two others?

Brightening Bearberry is loaded with antioxidants and is a lightening mask that helps diminish dark spots and sun damage.

Hydrating Rose Water is for those of you who want to moisturize and fight signs of aging.

Coming soon will be Smoothing Peptides, Rejuvenating Collagen, Exfoliating Papaya, Clarifying Mulberry Leaf and Healing Yogurt and Milk. I’m looking forward to the Rejuvenating Collagen personally.

A set of 4 masks (that is 8 uses) is $55 but you can purchase one for $15 to test it out. I wish they’d sell a combination pack but maybe that too will be coming up soon.

If you’d love to visit an esthetician but don’t have time or money for it, then a Dermovia Lace Your Face mask like this will help in all the right ways. — Marciadermovia lace mask opened

Smell good and look good with CITRUS CLEAR facial products – and enter the giveaway

Fresh lemon

I’ve learned a lot by blogging and one of the things I’ve learned is not to be so wary of products that are fragranced. I have my preferences of course but I think we all do. When Citrus Clear offered to send some products our way and included a giveaway I was game for it. Citrus smells are just fine with me. Give me lemon, grapefruit, lime, orange, or tangerine and I’m a happy tester.

Citrus Clear moisturizer, cleanser, tingle mask, acne spot treatment, and pore & blackhead extracting mask

Citrus Clear Sensitive Wash in Natural Tahitian Lime

Citrus Clear Sensitive Wash in Natural Tahitian Lime

Now onto the products and what they are like. SENSITIVE FACE WASH ($28.99)  in Natural Tahitian Lime: This has been formulated for sensitive skin and is hypoallergenic. It contains amino acids and vitamin C. It has the most luscious and true lime scent to it which makes sense because it’s formulated with only natural and chemical free ingredients. The 8 oz. pump will last for a long time with its gentle lather. This removes excess oil so it’s especially good for those with oily to normal skin.

Citrus Clear Sensitive Moisturizer in Pink Grapefruit

Citrus Clear Sensitive Moisturizer in Pink Grapefruit

The Sensitive Moisturizer in Pink Grapefruit makes me want to just open it and smell. It has a slight tartness to its yummy grapefruit fragrance. It isn’t overwhelming at all, I notice the fragrance when I first apply it but it doesn’t linger. The Sensitive Moisturizer (on sale now from $24.99 to $14.99) is very gentle and feels quite comfortable on my skin. It doesn’t have sunscreen but it’s a great base for your spf product. It doesn’t ball up under makeup which is important especially in the summer.  If I had a teen daughter I’d be letting her borrow it for sure.

Citrus Clear Tangerine Tingle

Citrus Clear Tangerine Tingle

Citrus Clear Tangerine Tingle

Citrus Clear Tangerine Tingle

TANGERINE TINGLE FACE SCRUB ($18.99) is probably my favorite of the products. You open it to a jiggly mixture that has this tantalizing tangerine fragrance. The reason it’s called a ‘tingle’ is that it really does tingle when you apply it. It’s the product working to clean out your pores and exfoliate your skin. Using it as a cleanser means you just apply it over damp skin and massage it on to exfoliate then rinse off. Using it as a mask you leave it on for about 2-4 minutes before rinsing. So depending on the amount of time you have, you can decide how to use it.

Tangerine Tingle

Tangerine Tingle

Tangerine Tingle contains glycolic acid to exfoliate and help keep pores clean; it also contains lemon oil which helps brighten your complexion. The website says that your face can get slightly red for a few minutes after, while I didn’t find that I think you should start with it as a wash and make sure you don’t have a reaction before working up to a mask.

Citrus Clear Pore & Blackhead Extracting Mask

Citrus Clear Pore & Blackhead Extracting Mask

The PORE & BLACKHEAD EXTRACTING MASK ($24.99) has the opposite texture of the Tangerine Tingle. This is very firm and truly mask like. This mask contains citrus but the natural clay and herbs seem to overtake and the mask smells sweet but not citrusy to me. You can apply it to either dry or damp skin and then leave it on for 4-8 minutes. It dries hard but doesn’t crack on my face. What I like about this is the ability to deep clean my pores. I don’t have breakouts but I think this would be great if you did since it’s such a deep cleansing tool. I like to wash it off with a washcloth and then follow up with the Sensitive Wash.

Citrus Clear Acne Spot Treatment

Citrus Clear Acne Spot Treatment

CITRUS CLEAR GRAPEFRUIT ACNE SPOT TREATMENT ($12.99) is what you can win. This treatment can be used up to 5 times a day if you have a breakout. It contains salicylic acid which helps treat your existing spot but it can also be used to control oily skin and prevent future breakouts. According to Citrus Clear it helps prevent the formation of blackheads. The ingredients are wonderful containing naturally derived grapefruit extract and vitamin C. The size of the tube makes it convenient to carry with you if you need it during the day.

Even after all this information there is more! Citrus Clear is paraben free, doesn’t contain pthalates, petrochemicals, sulfates, mineral oils, synthetic fragrance or dyes. They are a cruelty free company and contain no animal by-products. I think you can tell that this line was a lot going for it. — Marcia

GIVEAWAY INFORMATION:  Citrus Clear and Beauty Info Zone are giving away two Grapefruit Acne Spot Treatments. It is open to US and Canada through 8/4/17 at 11:59 p.m. EDT. If comments close please email your comment to  beautyinfozone@gmail.com and label it Citrus Clear. Then you can continue on with the other options.

bathroom basics with masque BAR Brightening Mask

bathroom basics with masque BAR Brightening Mask

To be ‘in the know’ you really should be aware that Asian skincare is the new big thing. Now that it’s more available in the US people are clamoring for the secrets that were hidden away from us for so long. The other thing you need to be ‘in the know’ is that sheet masks are taking the world by storm. Put those two together and you end up with masque Bar Sheet Masks by Look Beauty which are made in Korea and are sold at Target. A little bit of both end up great for you and me.

I used masque Bar Brightening Sheet Mask and loved the results. This was a spot of sunshine to relax, use the mask and end up with a powerful way to treat my skin. While this particular mask is formulated to help minimize the appearance of dark spots using it just once wasn’t enough for me to test if it had any long term effect on that. I do have sun spots from years of not using sunscreen and they are hard to lighten. But I’m willing to spend another $17.99 for 3 packs (or $9.99 for one) the next time I’m shopping Target to try this again.

The mask is cut out to fit your face. It’s soaked in a special serum that contains orange extract, licorice root and vitamin C. I found the mask to be loaded with enough serum that it never dried out on me. Directions said to leave it on for 20-30 minutes but it felt so good I probably left it on to closer to 40 minutes. My face didn’t feel sticky at all and there was no fragrance to irritate my senses.

Don't be afraid but here it is!

Don’t be afraid but here it is! (better adjust it first)

When it was time to remove it I found my skin to look brighter (this has no Hydroquinone in it) and very refreshed. Of course I needed my husband to take me out for dinner once I had this radiant complexion.

Rodan + Fields Redefine Skin System and Acute Care #ExpressYourself

Rodan + Fields Redefine System

Rodan + Fields Redefine System

Welcome to the world of Rodan + Fields Redefine System and Redefine Acute Care. It’s been rocking my world lately along with a lot of bloggers. This was provided by the iFabbo shop and we are all raving about it.

Rodan + Fields Redefine Acute Care

Rodan + Fields Redefine Acute Care

My experience with Rodan + Fields goes back at least 5 years. Just before I began blogging on Beauty Info Zone I became a seller of Rodan + Fields skincare. I used it religiously for a year but decided to bow out of selling since that wasn’t part of my passion. I did have passion for the skincare and using it again reminded me why.

Rodan + Fields has several different regimens but I originally Acute Care was only available with Redefine. As much as I’m enjoying the Redefine System again, it’s the new Acute Care for Expression Lines that has won me over.

REDEFINE is the regimen for women with lines, pores and loss of firmness and comes with 4 products:

Rodan + Fields Redefine products

Rodan + Fields Redefine products

Refine Daily Cleansing Mask is your first step. This is both a cleanser and a mask. It’s truly gentle enough to use daily. Apply it to your face and let it sit for a few minutes. I like to use this just before my shower so that it’s easier to wash off. It never hardens completely so you don’t feel like your face is about to crack. It has gentle dimethicone microbeads that create the exfoliation along with kaolin clay. It gets my face sparkling clean and leaves no residue.

R + F Daily Cleansing Mask

R + F Daily Cleansing Mask

Next step is the Pore Minimizing Toner. This toner is what got me restarted using toner after skipping it for several years. I felt then and now that this helped to restore the pH balance to my face and got me ready for more skincare.

R + F Pore Minimizing Toner

R + F Pore Minimizing Toner

There are two moisturizers in the kit. Triple Defense Moisture with Broadspectrum SPF 30 is for daytime while Overnight Restorative Cream is obviously for night time use but they really are interchangeable. Both have a mild floral fragrance and are creamy to the touch. I don’t like fragranced products but Rodan + Fields has never bothered me. I also use a serum prior to applying these two products.

Now for the fun part and what sets Redefine apart from the crowd –  Acute Care for Expression Lines.

Acute Care for Expression Lines

Acute Care for Expression Lines

ACUTE CARE is a set of 10 packets with two pads in each. They are totally different than any eye mask or pad I’ve ever used. First you can use them wherever you have expression lines for example where you have crow’s feet or “smile” lines. Second, you leave them on for about 8 hours though the time is up to you. Use these 2 to 3 times per week for one month.

Acute Care for Expression Lines

Acute Care for Expression Lines

The first time I used them I made a big mistake and put them under my eyes. The skin there is far too delicate for this purpose and another type of treatment is better in that position. It was very uncomfortable under my eyes and I was questioning what I’d gotten myself into! I then began using them on my crow’s feet and oh my, what a difference they made. I chose to wear them on the days I was home all day or home for at least 8 hours and wasn’t wearing any cosmetics.

Rodan + Fields Acute Care

Rodan + Fields Acute Care

I attached these carefully at the sides of my eyes making sure that my eyelashes didn’t get in the way since I was usually working around the house. Once I had them in a comfortable place I ran my finger up and down to ‘seal’ them. As R+F tells us “REDEFINE ACUTE CARE™ smooths wrinkles with proprietary Liquid Cone Technology that melts line-defying peptides and hyaluronic acid directly into the wrinkle for a more youthful appearance.”

Wearing the Rodan + Fields Acute Care patch

At first I could feel them on and the little cones inside felt like they were gently pricking my skin. Within a very short time though I barely noticed them on. I chose not to sleep in them because I don’t like taking a chance with my insomnia and I love my nighttime skincare and wanted to continue that.

When I removed these I noticed a little whiteness from the peptides and hyaluronic acid but washing my face with a soft cloth removed that right away. I really noticed the difference the next morning and it would last for a few days.

I happened to go to the dermatologist this week and I mentioned them to her. Even though her office does procedures like Botox and fillers she felt that these were a great product for many people, especially anyone with an eye disease like Myasthenia Gravis or someone on blood thinners. She listed a variety of people that she’d recommend Acute Care for so that really impressed me.

Both of these systems are ones I’d recommend (and no I don’t sell this anymore) but what I plan on buying are the Acute Care patches for Expression Lines. After using them for one month, it’s recommended that you wait 2-3 months and use them again if needed. They aren’t inexpensive ($220 for the box)  but this is something I’d like to continue.

Have you tried any Rodan + Fields products? Would you consider relieving yourself of expression lines?? — Marcia

REFRESH your skin with this You Lab mask

Refresh mask

Refresh mask

When it’s time to treat yourself a mask is the way to go. It gives you some “you” time while it refreshes your skin. Refresh from You Lab is a plant based mask created to clear impurities. When this was sent for possible review I eagerly used it. It had my name written all over it.

Refresh by You Lab

Refresh by You Lab

If your concerns are lack of hydration and fine lines/wrinkles then pay attention! If you are interested in anti-aging  products perk up your ears. And if your skin needs calming then this is a product you really can use.

Refresh mask

Refresh mask

REFRESH is a seaweed infused mask that is very thick; a little goes a long way which is a good thing because it’s definitely a splurge at $149 for the jar. The benefits are worth the price. It’s recommended to use this mask several times a week for 20 – 30 minutes. I use it day or night depending on when I have the time. At night I apply it and go relax and get some me time, in the morning I like to do it before my shower. It doesn’t harden like a clay mask so you can go on with your business and not worry about smiling or talking.

The mask’s key ingredients are Tourmaline which improves radiance; Bentonite a highly effective poultice for masks; and Kaolin to draw out impurities and toxins.

Refresh by You Lab

Refresh by You Lab

The noticeable benefits are that it instantly helps tighten and firm skin which is why I love the mornings that I have time to use this before I get ready for the day. It also makes skin feel renewed and smoother.

Refresh is good for all skin types and happily they never test on animals. It’s paraban and glycol free. It does have a fragrance to it that I notice for about an hour. It’s not particularly strong but I’m very aware of fragrance so it probably won’t be noticeable to most readers.

If you are ready for a mask that’s infused with powerful seaweed properties to help with uneven skin tone and leave your skin energized for your day, one that will help repair dehydration, and one that is easy on even sensitive skin then get yourself to You Lab and check this out. — Marcia

Beauty time: MaskerAide review and giveaway

MaskerAide is a company you want to know about. They do one thing only – they produce masks for all your facial needs. We each received the masks shown below so that we could review them plus give some away to our lovely readers. Read about all the masks and decide which you really need for yourself. The packaging of each is uniquely adorable and these are sturdy masks. Each one costs $5.99.

Maskeraide

Maskeraide

MARCIA’S REVIEW:

My job today is to tell you about the MaskerAide masks we have so that you can learn what they are all about. My blog partner Lisa will then let you know everything necessary on the workings and results of one of these fab masks. There are 6 masks all together and we have 5 different ones for winners. The directions are the same for all of them but each one is different. They have different ingredients and purposes. It’s not one size fits all as you’ll soon see.

BEAUTY REST’ORE:

Maskeraide Beauty Restore

MaskerAide Beauty Restore

The goal of Beauty Rest’ore is to Restore, Regenerate and Repair.  It’s probably the most hydrating of the masks they created. It’s infused with argan oil, super fruit extracts, green algae and vitamin e to restore and regenerate your tired face. It contains lavender oil so it helps with relaxation. It’s the perfect one to apply during your nighttime regimen. (See Lisa’s review below)

I DON’T WANT TO GROW UP:

Maskeraide I Don't Wanna Grow Up

MaskerAide I Don’t Wanna Grow Up

This one won’t be part of the giveaway because when we saw it we felt it was sort of our motto. Shame on us but we both used ours. The purpose is to lift, firm and soften fine lines. If you want a youthful glow then this is the one you want to buy. It contains Ylang-Ylang Oil, Argan Oil, Vitamin E, Hydrolyzed Collagen and Elastin all of which help diminish fine lines.

PRE-PARTY PREP:

Maskeraide Party Prep

MaskerAide Pre-Party Prep

All of our winners will receive Pre-Party Prep which brightens, primes and energizes your skin. While some of the masks (like Beauty Rest’ore) are for night time use, Pre-Party Prep is to help perk you up and create a perfect canvas before you are ready to go out and face the world. It will make your foundation go on better than ever. Ingredients like a lightweight blend of natural Argan Oil, Orange Peel Oil, Super Fruit Extracts, Rice Extract and Honey will soften your face and be your primer for the night.

ALL NIGHTER:

Maskeraide All Nighter

MaskerAide All Nighter

An all-nighter can mean several things – the ‘walk of shame’ or the study crazed student or overworked woman. Whichever it is for you you’ll want this mask in the morning to awaken, replenish and refresh. It will help depuff your tired eyes and the peppermint oil it contains will help wake up your senses. Other ingredients include Aloe, Argan Oil, Heartleaf (a powerful detoxifier), Honey, Super Fruit and Cactus Extracts. You’ll be looking refreshed again after using All Nighter.

DETOX DIVA:

Maskeraide Detox Diva

MaskerAide Detox Diva

Detox Diva has the hardest job to do of all the masks. This is the one that you use to cleanse, exfoliate and detoxify. It’s absolutely loaded with amazing ingredients. For example to purify your pores you want the natural Geranium Oil, Seaweed and Green Tea Leaf Extracts in Detox Diva. For exfoliation it also contains Chinese Plum, Strawberry and Lemon Fruit Extracts and for hydration it has Argan Oil and Honey. I don’t think you can beat this one.

WEATHER WARRIOR:

MaskerAide Weather Warrior

MaskerAide Weather Warrior

Weather Warrior is the one you want when you’ve been out in the elements. For summer those UV rays are creating havoc with your skin and in winter add in the wind, cold, and harshness of the weather. You need something to get you back to being calm, soothed and healed. You need Weather Warrior with its Aloe, Green Tea, Witch Hazel and Argan Oil to soothe you!

LISA’S REVIEW:

I adore every one of these masks. Each one is hydrating, soothing, and relaxing. Maskeraide Masks are paper masks with holes for eyes, nose and lips.

Maskeraide mask

I am duly impressed with how much product is soaking into the masks in the package – check this one out, it’s Beauty Rest’ore:

See all that wonderful moisturizing goodess? I squeeze out every drop and smooth it on after I take off the mask. It is fantastic.

These masks have such cute packaging and names plus they couldn’t be easier to use. Just place the paper mask on a clean face and kick back for ten minutes. All of the masks have a great cooling effect which really increases that ‘pampering effect’. Definitely show your skin some love and enter the giveaway!

Beat the winter skin blues with our Mario Badescu giveaway

Win this terrific Mario Badescu Skin Care Set and beat those winter skin blues!

Win this terrific Mario Badescu Skin Care Set and beat those winter skin blues!

So it’s -25 degrees here in Michigan…I just read on Facebook that one of my friends injured herself after she passed out from the shock of inhaling the freezing air. It’s dangerously cold, the school are all closed, and my skin is crying from all this dry indoor heat, not to mention wind burn from just running out to get the mail!

Mario Badescu has fantastic products to help beat this winter cold and they are giving a set to one lucky BIZ reader. Read on for more about the Seaweed Cleansing Soap, Super Collagen Mask,and Lip Wax – plus your chance to make this set your own.

Mario Badescu Seaweed Cleansing Soap

Mario Badescu Seaweed Cleansing Soap

thick, creamy green goodness

thick, creamy green goodness

The Seaweed Cleansing Soap (8 0z $12, 16 oz $20) is a very thick, green cleanser with tiny bits of seaweed that help with exfoliation. It’s perfect for normal to oily skin and it is fragrance-free. It cleanses beautifully without drying out skin. The seaweed nourishes the skin with minerals while also acting as an anti-inflammatory, which is great for my irritated winter skin.

Mario Badescu Super Collagen Mask

The Super Collagen Mask ($18) is a clay mask for normal to oily skin.It is a thick, pudding-like mint green mask that doesn’t have a discernible scent. The Super Collagen Mask helps firm and purify skin but what I really love is that it’s full of wonderful soothing agents like Azulene and oatmeal that make my skin happy.

Mario Badescu Lip Wax

Mario Badescu Lip Wax

my latest addiction...

my latest addiction…

The Lip Wax ($5) is available in two forms – jar and stick. I like the stick version because then I don’t need to be concerned with dipping my fingers into anything. This is an excellent lanolin-based lip balm that soothes and heals dry lips. It sort of ‘melts’ onto my lips, and I love the wonderful slip it gives them. The Vitamin E helps makes my lips smooth and hydrated. Lip Wax is my latest lip addiction!

Now is your chance to win a  Seaweed Cleansing SoapSuper Collagen Mask,and Lip Wax to help you beat the winter skin blues!  This giveaway is for US and Canada only and open through February 10, 2014.  Good luck!  – Lisa
