Time to play in the mud with Miracle Skin Transformer Mud Mask

Miracle Skin Transformer is providing more miracles for your skin – this time with their Miracle Revival Mud Skin Restoring Treatment Mask  ($38).

MST

Is this mud mask a miracle for your skin?

Who doesn’t love playing in the mud? It’s always fun to get dirty in the name of getting clean. I adore mud masks so I was thrilled when Miracle Skin Transformer sent the BIZ their new mud mask. This mask promises some real miracles for your skin – hydrated skin, improved firmness, redness reduction, wrinkle reduction, detoxification and protection from free-radicals. It even takes on uneven pigmentation and dark spots.

MST

Miracle Skin Transformer – a HUGE jar of mud

Inside the huge jar is what MST calls the M3 Complex, which is a combination of antioxidants and vitamins like green tea and mushroom extract, oat beta glucans, and extracts of the Resurrection Plant (boy that sure sounds like something that makes miracles happen!). It’s got bioactive silt from European lakes to invigorate the skin and Kaolin clay to help keep skin clear by drawing out impurities.

MST

mud never looked so good

The mask is applied to clean, dry skin.  It’s left on for 15 minutes, then rinsed off with warm water. I find it makes my skin tingle a bit, in a pleasant way. It smells sort of like mint. Afterwards, my skin is extremely soft and hydrated. I’ve been using this twice a week for a month, and my skin looks great.  I have definitely noticed an improvement in skin tone with less redness and an overall brighter complexion. If I have the beginnings of a hormonal outbreak, I use this mask and blemishes run away.

If you like mud masks, this is one to check out. I think it’s a total winner, it does everything it says and doesn’t dry out my skin at all.  Hooray for miracles and mud!  - Lisa

Miracle Skin Transformer has surprised us by taking a turn towards lips. This amazing company, created by Sarah McNamara, started with one product and from that has created so many amazing products and they keep getting better. Their goal is to make our life easier by combining what each product will do so everything is pretty much double duty. With Lip Rewind MST (as it’s affectionately called) has created a lipgloss that not only is pretty but helps to improve the definition of your lips. The official name is Lip Rewind Advanced Peptide Lip Treatment SPF20. The lip treatment is infused with ingredients that will help

  •   Repair daily damage
  •   Boost volume and moisture content
  •   Protect from UVA/UVB sun damage
  •   Improve the definition of the lip contour and shape

It’s available in 5 beautiful shades

We were thrilled when they sent us Pink and Berry to do a Side by Side review for you. Each shade is filled with shine and the prettiest hints of color.

Marcia’s Side:

There are only things to love about Miracle Skin Transformer’s Lip Rewind. It protects my lips with sunscreen and Vitamin E. It hydrates my lips with ingredients like pomegranate and shea butter. It helps smooth away wrinkles with hyaluronic microspheres. It enhances my lips with plumping ingredients like peppermint and menthol. It helps restore collagen production with peptides and ingredients like white rose moss extract. And it looks good at the same time. What could be better?

The shade I chose to receive is Pink, always my favorite lip shade. The color looks a little deeper in the wind-up tube than it does on my lips. The color is quite sheer and I find it basically enhances my own lip shade giving it a little bit of depth but not too much. I wear this both alone and over lipsticks. I find the most plumping action though is when I wear it on its own. That’s when the work begins and my lips begin to look a little plumper and definitely less lined.

Lisa’s Side:

I really like this.  I tend to have dry lips, so the MST Lip Rewind feels like heaven to my moisture-starved kisser. Plus I know that the peptides and hyaluronic acid will help stave off those awful lines around my lips.

The applicator is fun and unique – it didn’t take many turns for the product to start coming out, then it was fascinating to watch once it did!

fun with applicators

The texture is slightly sticky, it’s just emollient enough to feel moisturizing but not super slick. It has a slight cooling effect due to the peppermint oil in it, which is pleasant to the point of almost being addicting.

I have the shade Berry. It looks bright cherry red coming out of the tube, but it’s sheer on giving just a bit more than a hint of color and shine.

This is a winner – it heals, protects, and looks great in the process.  Awesome!

Now that Marcia and Lisa have reviewed Lip Rewind and told you how much we like these, we have one more very important reason for you to consider this as your next beauty buy. Sarah McNamara has created a charitable fund if you buy the shade LOVE. “Sarah McNamara Beauty New York Cares
The Children’s Action Network is a national non-profit organization founded to harness the power of the entertainment business to raise awareness of children’s issues, specifically the plight of the 107,000 foster children in the United States in need of a loving family.
In support of children’s Action Network’s efforts to find loving families for waiting foster children, $5 from the sale of every Lip Rewind in the shade LOVE will be donated to the charity.”

Miracle Skin Transformer Lip Rewind Advanced Peptide Lip Treatment ($24) is available on their website and also at Sephora. Do something good for your lips while making them look their best with Lip Rewind.

What can Miracle Skin Transformer Vanish do for you?

Vanish

Vanish

When I heard that Miracle Skin Transformer created Vanish Instant Imperfection Corrector visions of wonder danced through my head. There was retaliation for Albert who followed me relentlessly in 2nd grade petrifying me, making me cry and refusing to go to school.  Then there was Stacey who flirted with my boyfriend and made me jealous. Or was it the kind of “vanish” that could get rid of that high school teacher that scared the bejesus out of me just by looking in my direction? I’d love to have made him Vanish. And what about those pimples that came on just before that really big date? Or the extra five pounds that made sure you couldn’t zip up those expensive new jeans? Ah, the dreams of Vanish!

Miracle Skin Transformer VANISH

Miracle Skin Transformer VANISH

Since this Miracle Skin Transformer Vanish couldn’t do that then I needed to see what it could do.  According to MST it’s a primer but it’s different than most of my other primers. Its purpose is to not just prep your skin for foundation but also to make pesky pores and fine lines appear to vanish before your very eyes. To give the appearance of that model-like perfect skin we all strive for. It’s a concentrated instant skin treatment that combines the power of a serum with a skin smoothing primer addressing imperfections. It does a pretty good job.

vanish directionVanish is a white silicone like gel that applies very smoothly. It gives my skin a soft touch that lasts the day. While it’s not magic, it definitely blurs the lines making my skin look more flawless. When I was testing this out, many times I applied it to just half of my face to see the difference it would make. I also tested it wearing a variety of finishes on my face. I wore it with the original Miracle Skin Transformer, with BB creams, with liquid and cream foundations, and with Make Up For Ever Pro Finish Powder. In each case the pores on the side of my face with vanish weren’t quite as visible. The differences were small, not enough to have people call me out for being “two faced” but they were there.

VANISH TUBE

VANISH TUBE

Using this is easy, it’s in a pump tube which is different than most. It took a minute to get it primed but soon a small amount pumped out. You don’t want to waste product and this pumps out just enough  to cover both cheeks and my nose. If I want to put it on my whole face then I can just use a second pump. Vanish is also easy on my nose. I really don’t notice a scent.

According to Miracle Skin Transformer Vanish Instant Imperfection Corrector will boost collagen production and improve elasticity. LONG TERM skin benefits: This concentrated skin treatment utilizes the latest in skin treatment technology with highly stabilized Vitamin C + Ergothionine – a super antioxidant duo, along with Sesame, Grapefruit and Lupine extracts. The skin penetrating serum addresses the quadruple threat of aging concerns: fine lines/ wrinkles, sun damage/environmental stress, dark spots and dullness.

To me the purpose of foundation is to rid my face of all that annoys me – redness, broken blood vessels, uneven complexion and crater like pores. I don’t care if it’s an illusion if it makes me look and feel better. Vanish helps with that illusion. It gives my skin enough added smoothness to look more refined. It helps to Vanish the imperfections. Now if it could only help to vanish my Visa bill then it would be perfect. Another great addition to the family of products created by Sarah McNamara for Miracle Skin Transformer.  — Marcia

American Express provides support by generating awareness and action around shopping local for the entire day. So if you need a gift, a haircut, new shoes, a new concealer… Pick it up at a small biz! You can learn where to shop, and how to support local businesses in your area by visiting http://www.shopsmall.com

Here’s a great very short video to remind you of why you should SHOP SMALL

Speaking of small, I have a new favorite nail polish shop that is considered an “indie”. I’ll be reviewing a beautiful polish this weekend from SoFlaJo. Starting now you can get free shipping on polishes with a minimum $20 order. The best thing is that she sells minis for only $5 so you can try a lot of her fabulous polishes for very little money. I have Hidden Gem from Jody’s new Party Time collection and it’s H.O.T. I’m so ordering from the Year of the Dragon collection!! This is a way to buy small and get yourself some pretties at a great price.  — Marcia

Miracle Skin Transformer SPF 20 Face plus Treat and Conceal

Have you entered our Miracle Skin Transformer giveaway yet?  It’s a fantastic giveaway, click HERE to enter.  In addition to the Hydroactive Cleanser and Hydroactive Microderm that Marcia reviewed, you could also win the SPF 20 Face and Treat and Conceal.

SPF 20 Face

Miracle Skin Transformer SPF 20 Face is perfect for those days that call for highly effective minimalism.  This is a 5-in-1 tinted moisturizer that moisturizes, primes, treats, mattifies, and protects your skin from the sun.  You just can’t beat that!

SPF 20 Face swatch

It’s a thick but creamy lotion with a slight tint.  There are seven shade to choose from, the one swatched above is Medium.  Because it’s a tinted moisturizer, the color is very forgiving.  You can smooth this on with a sponge, or I just use my fingers.  The coverage is sheer but buildable.

I love how this evens out skin tone without looking like makeup.  It gives a pretty, natural glow and makes your skin super soft.  It reduces the look of your pores, plus it minimizes those pesky fine lines.  And it’s good for your skin – Miracle Skin Transformer says that the ”unique M3 Complex delivers a rich combination of anti-oxidants and vitamins, including Saw Palmetto and Passion Fruit extracts. Vitamin K, Vitamin A, Vitamin E and CoEnzymeQ10 are encapsulated into tiny beads for direct delivery onto your skin.”  So it not only looks gorgeous when it’s applied, it helps keep your skin looking beautiful with regular use.

Also included in our fabulous GIVEAWAY is the Miracle Skin Transformer Treat and Conceal.

Treat and Conceal

This is a terrific concealer that also hydrates the under eye area and improves skin tone.  It’s like a more full coverage version of the SPF 20 Face.

Treat and Conceal

See how much thicker the formula is?  And you don’t need a lot, the size above is far too much product for under your eyes.  There are four shades available, the shade swatched is Medium.

Treat and Conceal

Treat and Conceal does a great job of covering dark under eye circles, redness, pigmentation problems and broken capillaries.  It doesn’t settle into fine lines, and it really brightens under the eyes.  Plus, it’s also good for your skin, containing marine collagen, white rose, and chamomile extracts.

So what are you waiting for??  Click HERE to enter by 11:59 p.m. EST August 25, 2012 for your chance to win 4 of the best from Miracle Skin Transformer.  – Lisa
