Don’t Call Me Ma’am products

When DON’T CALL ME MA’AM emailed us about their products and offered a giveaway to one of our readers we were totally enticed. The name alone was enough to make me curious, the great packaging added another level and the fact that we could offer a set to one of you sealed the deal. I agreed to test out their products for all those reasons.

Don't Call Me Ma'am skincare trio

Don’t Call Me Ma’am skincare trio

DON’T CALL ME MA’AM is a reasonably priced skincare line that has excellent ingredients. We were sent three products to test out.  I’ve enjoyed using these and I love the packaging. It’s fun and gives me something to read in the bathroom – seriously. I enjoy looking at the sayings on each of the products and seem to discover new ones constantly.

Don't Call Me Ma'am sayings

Don’t Call Me Ma’am sayings

“Every day is 24 hours of opportunity”  “There are mountains to climb, people to meet, days to concur” “Age does not define how I look or feel” and “I am Beauty with a capital B” are just examples of the sayings on the packaging. Bright, cheerful and motivational products with easy to use tubes.

WASH IT AWAY is Don’t Call Me Ma’am’s cleanser. This tube of cleanser is refreshing and doesn’t make my skin feel tight after using it. It takes off eye makeup too without stinging my eyes. I find that unusual so that’s a definite plus. Not all mascara will come off with it (fiber ones or really thick mascara) but most of the ones I’ve been using lately, like Votre Vu’s Eiffel Tower, come off with ease. This is a cleanser that can be used by the whole family – they don’t have to be a “ma’am”. It’s fragrance free and has some essential ingredients like DCMM Botanical Extracts blend, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil and Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil. ($25)

IN BALANCE EVERYDAY TONER comes next. This comes in a 6 oz spray bottle.  At first I wondered if I’d be comfortable spraying it but I actually enjoy it that way. I have used a cotton pad but it’s more efficient to just spray it on and let it dry. It’s a very calming toner and works to rebalance your skin’s pH balance as well as calm any inflammation. The essential ingredients in this are DCMM Botanical Blend and Allantoin (Skin conditioning agent). This too is fragrance free (that makes me so happy). ($25)

FACE LOVE is their moisturizer. There is no SPF so I’ve been using it at night even though the website says to use it in the morning. (I’m such a rebel!) This doesn’t have a heavy feel to it yet it is quite moisturizing and makes my skin feel very soft. They say “This naturally hydrating formula binds moisture to the skin and promotes soft and supple tissue. “ The essential ingredients are DCMM Botanical Blend, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Oil, Jojoba Oil, Aloe Barbedensis (Aloe Vera) Extract, Tocopherol (natural Vitamin E), Panthenol. ($35, 4 oz)

Don't Call Me Ma'am FACE LOVE

Don’t Call Me Ma’am FACE LOVE

DON’T CALL ME MA’AM is Never tested on Animals and is free of harsh Chemicals, Parabens, Sulfates And Fragrances.

There are so many reasons to like this line because of the ingredients and also because of what it lacks which is just as important. Cruelty free products that will keep your skin in great shape and keep your mind busy and amused.

Increase the effectiveness of your skin care with Indeed Labs Hydraluron

Is it just me, or is this winter even more drying for skin than usual??  I can’t believe how quickly my skin gets itchy and scaly if I am not adding tons of hydration.

I have been desperately needing something to put moisture back into my skin.  The product I have been enjoying that fulfills that need this season is Indeed Labs Hydraluron ($24.99).  Indeed Labs sent us this moisture-boosting serum to test, and I am loving what it does for my dry winter skin!  Check out all the benefits:

  • Reinforce skin’s natural short and long-term moisturization
  • “Plumps up” skin tissue to restore elasticity and firmness.
  • Reduces skin roughness and provides a soft, smooth and silky texture to the skin.
  • Boosts the action of your moisturizer by stimulating cell turnover resulting in an improved absorption of active ingredients to the skin.

Indeed Labs HydraluronThis clear, nonsticky serum is the purest form of hyaluronic acid available.  It helps skin self-hydrate and it stimulates cell renewal for soft, glowy skin.  I love how it instantly plumps up and hydrates my skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Smoothing this serum on before other skin care ingredients actually increases their effectiveness, making all skin care that much better.  So it plumps up skin AND increases the efficacy of my other skin products…how fantastic is that?

This is a truly beautiful serum to use on its own or with other skin treatments.  If you want to banish dry winter skin, this is a great solution!!

You can find Indeed Labs Hydraluron at Walgreens.com, Duane Read, and Us.Boots.com.  – Lisa

Makeup artist finds from Phytomer – and a giveaway!

Phytomer GiveawayHow about another amazing giveaway?  Phytomer, a French-based professional skin and body care line found in high-end spas all over the world, asked me to choose 3 of my favorite products for a giveaway.   They sent some really terrific products, which I expected since they are one of the few spa brands with their own laboratory and team of scientists.  I chose these three makeup artist-friendly items for the giveaway:  Rose Visage Toning Cleansing Lotion, Hydracontinue Radiance Energizing Cream, and CC Creme with SPF 20.

If you are a makeup artist, you will want all three of these products in your bag of tricks.  And if you just specialize in doing your own makeup, you will want them too!

Phytomer Rosee Visage

Phytomer Rosee Visage

The ROSÉE VISAGE TONING CLEANSING LOTION ($33.50) is everything you need to cleanse and tone all in one bottle.  It is perfect for pretty much everyone since it’s free of alcohol and super gentle.  It cleans like crazy but doesn’t leave a tacky film behind.  Skin is soft, clean, and ready for product.  This has a very soft rose scent that doesn’t linger.  It really is fantastic.

Phytomer Hydracontinue Radiance Energizing Cream

Every makeup artist wants a cream that will hydrate skin and work as a perfect base for makeup.  Phytomer’s HYDRACONTINUE RADIANCE ENERGIZING CREAM ($54) is the perfect answer.  This lightweight cream soaks in quickly and leaves the skin with an amazingly soft texture.  Check out the clinical test results:

Healthy complexion: 95%*
Immediately hydrated skin: 85%*
After 30 minutes, level of hydration: +66%**
Revitalised skin: 85%*
Toned skin: 85%*

I love this as a primer.  It works on every skin type from dry to oily, and it makes a perfect canvas for makeup application.  This is a wonderful multi-tasker that needs to be in your kit.

PHYTOMER CC CREME SPF 20 ($51) is such a great find!  It just came on to the market last March.  This creme is fabulous all by itself, or patted on before foundation and under heavier makeup. It evens out skin tone, gives an extra glow, moisturizes, refines pores, and provides sun protection.  There is only one shade but it’s very forgiving, and works on all but super light or dark skin tones.  The effect is beautiful and natural looking.  Phytomer, please make this in more shades!!

Phytomer has sustainable products that truly deliver results.  This is one giveaway everyone – professional makeup artist and cosmetics aficionados – will be extremely happy with.  You will be sending me a gushing thank you note soon!!

Phytomer is giving all three products to one lucky winner.  This fabulous giveaway runs through October 13th at 11:59 p.m. (If comments aren’t open please comment on our Facebook page or email me at marciaandlisa@gmail.com). — Lisa

Happy birthday Glossybox! August 2014 Glossybox review

Happy birthday and happy third anniversary, Glossybox!  I can’t believe it’s been that long.  Glossybox has mastered the art of delivering full and sample-sized surprise collections of goodies from unique and interesting lines.  $21 a month is a wonderfully affordable way to treat yourself, especially when the value is always well over that – the retail value of the Glossybox they sent us for August is $64.

Happy birthday or happy anniversary?  I guess it's both!  August 2014 Glossybox

The August box has four sample sized products and two full-sized products.

Eslor Firming Collagen Day Cream (deluxe sample, retail value $17)  This is the first I’ve heard of this line, and this moisturizer sounds intriguing.  Ginseng has wound healing properties, collagen supports elasticity, avocado is an emollient and a terrific antioxidant, and wheat germ and sesame oils are great emollients.

deluxe samples of Uberliss Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner

Uberliss Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner (deluxe samples, combined retail value $8) These two hair care products should be extremely hydrating for hair with ingredients like royal jelly and keratin – plus these are sulfate-free.  I am excited to try them out, and they are the perfect size for my upcoming trip out of town.

Eyeko Skinny Mini Liquid Eyeliner

Eyeko Skinny Mini Liquid Eyeliner (mini size, retail value $8)  I absolutely adore my Eyeko Eye Do Liquid Eyeliner, so I literally squealed when I saw this cute mini liquid liner.  I find Skinny Mini is a softer black than the Eye Do Liner, so it’s great to have the choice of dark black or charcoal black.  The applicator is the same, though, and this is and incredibly easy liquid liner to apply.

SpaRitual Nail Polish

SpaRitual Nail Polish (full size, retails for $12)  Each box has a different shade, and I got Uncharted, a fuchsia shimmer.  This is a pretty, perky pink that is total fun.  I love pink shades so it’s perfect for me.

Kryolan Highlighter in Cashmere

Kryolan Highlighter in Cashmere (full size, retail value $18.95)  What a gorgeous, glowy cream highlighter – I love this!  It’s a small jar, but it’s so concentrated it will last forever.  The jar was created specially for Glossybox’s third anniversary, and it’s worth the price of the box all by itself.  A little Cashmere tapped onto cheekbones gives a perfect amount of glow.

For me, the stand out items are the Eyeko Skinny Mini Liquid Eyeliner and the Kryolan Highlighter in Cashmere.  However, everything in the August box is going to get play from me!  If you are considering subscribing, I have some codes for extra goodies for you.  Happy birthday and happy anniversary, Glossybox!  – Lisa

GLOSSYBDAY will get you 20% off a monthly beauty box (through 10/21).  MAGIC will get you a full size Eyeko Black Magic Mascara with your first Glossybox (through 9/26).  HIPGLOSSY will get you a free Boscia BB Cream with any new subscription (through 9/30).

Be good to your skin with Eco Beauty Be Good Skin Care

I’ve adored the La Fresh line (they feature different types of portable beauty wipes for travel) for years.  The Sunscreen Wipes, Makeup Remover Wipes, and Lens & Screen Cleaning Wipes have saved me more times that I can begin to count.  So when La Fresh contacted the BIZ offering samples of their new anti-aging skin care line called Eco Beauty Be Good, I was very interested.  The concept behind this skin care line is “to make chic, effective products that are good for your skin while being conscientious about the environment.”

Hello Lip Treat

Hello Lip Treat

The Eco-Beauty Be Good packaging definitely had me at ‘Hello’.  Inside each box is an inspirational saying:

Eco Beauty:  The best is yet to come.

Eco Beauty: The best is yet to come.

Eco Beauty:  Good things are going to happen.

Eco Beauty: Good things are going to happen.

I just love this!  And since I tested a daytime moisturizer and a night moisturizer, it was a wonderfully positive way to begin and end every day.

love the messaging on the boxes and jars!

love the messaging on the boxes and jars!

Good Day. Day Moisturizer ($40) has a whole slew of ingredients that moisturize and repair skin, including peptides, hyaluronic acid, natural cucumber, aloe, antioxidant panthenol (vitamin B), and vitamins C and E.

This is what a good day looks like

This creamy moisturizer comes in a jar, so resist sticking fingers in to get product.  Even hands you think are squeaky clean can have lingering bacteria, and that last thing you want is to contaminate your moisturizer.  Use a little spatula of some sort to scoop out what you need.  I have been known to break the nails off a nail wheel to use as a makeshift spatula.  Good Day, Day Cream is a thick, fragrance-free moisturizer that hydrates and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  It does not have sunscreen, so you’ll want a separate product for that.  This moisturizer improves collagen production, so skin looks fresh and younger.

Good Night. Night Cream ($40) is an evening moisturizer that has great anti-aging ingredients like peptides and hyaluronic acid, along with the mega-hydration of natural shea butter and skin healing aloe.

Eco Beauty good night. Night Cream

Again, this is a jar, so don’t give into temptation and keep those fingers outta there!  Good Night, Night Cream is thicker than Good Day, Day Moisturizer.  It has no discernible fragrance.  While it has some similar ingredients as the day cream for fighting wrinkles, this provides powerful hydration that is best for combination or dry skin.  I have combination skin, so I pat this on my dry areas (cheeks and forehead) at night for powerful plumping action.

Hello. Lips Treat ($10) is a lip balm that moisturizes and plumps lips with oligopeptides, shea butter, and cocoa butter.  It also has an oil blend of sweet almond, jojoba, peppermint and cinnamon oils.  Most lips will love this, but the peppermint and cinnamon can be a skin irritant for some.

hello soft, smooth lips!

hello soft, smooth lips!

The ogliopeptides are awesome for supporting collagen production, so regular use of this lip balm can make lips more full and lush.

I love the message from La Fresh – besides using Eco-Beauty products, they recommend that you ‘exercise modestly, drink plenty of water, eat healthy meals, sleep enough hours, hug often & smile more.’  It just doesn’t get any better than that.

Other products available in the Eco-Beauty Be Good line include Good Start. Face Serum, Good Bye. Face Cleansing Wipes, and Good Times. Facial Treatment Cloth Masks. All Eco-Beauty Be Good products are free of parabens, sulfates, triclosan, dyes, PEGs, artificial fragrances and animal byproducts. Be good to your skin and the environment and take a look at Eco-Beauty Be Good!  – Lisa

My Beauty Bunny Cruelty-Free All-Natural AHA Moisturizer review

My Beauty Bunny is a blogger who only blogs about cruelty free items. Jen from My Beauty Bunny, Phyrra, and Tashina from Logical Harmony are the three bloggers I read and trust when it comes to this category. Jen created a moisturizer with Nicki of Future Derm and named it My Beauty Bunny Cruelty-Free All-Natural AHA Moisturizer. I was sent one to test and after several months I’m ready to give you the lowdown.

beauty bunny moisturizer

MBB Moisturizer is a lightweight lotion in a bottle. The packaging is great since your fingers don’t contaminate the product when you want to use it. What makes this stand out is that it’s 100% Natural. It isn’t loaded with chemicals, it’s loaded with things like aloe vera, squalane from olives, bilberry fruit, citrus fruit extract and the list goes on (see ingredients at the end). All of these items are good for your skin.

Because this is an AHA moisturizer it’s also lightly exfoliating your skin behind the scenes. Mostly when I think of exfoliation I think of scrubs, microderm products and the like. But this has gentle exfoliating and line minimizing AHAs that are made from fruit acids. It also has ingredients like green, red and white tea which will protect your skin from premature aging. It’s a moisturizer for all ages, shapes and sizes!!

I always mention fragrance and My Beauty Bunny Cruelty-Free All-Natural AHA Moisturizer does have a fragrance. It’s a cranberry grapefruit scent that I notice upon application yet minutes later it’s not noticeable. When I use this during the day I always apply a separate sunscreen since it doesn’t have it. I often use this at night, especially if I’m seeing some breakouts starting on my skin, and I don’t need to worry about spf then.

If you are looking for a moisturizer that is Vegan, Cruelty Free,
Paraben free, sulfate free, synthetic dye free, synthetic fragrance free, petrochemical free, GMO free, and Triclosan free here’s the answer!

Happily this is on sale for $15.60 at Future Derm so take advantage of this special while you can. — Marcia

Hada Labo Tokyo’s summer gems

Hada Labo makes me happy but sad. I previously reviewed two products from Hada Labo Tokyo, Anti-Aging Hydrator and Skin Plumping Gel, and both are absolutely fab. I’ve already repurchased the Anti-Aging Hydrator since it’s made a big difference in the hydration of my skin. Today I’m going to review two more of their amazing products that were sent to Beauty Info Zone to test. So why is it that I love the products but they make me sad? Hada Labo Tokyo only makes 5 products…. that’s it. They need to expand their line so I can get in line to buy them.

Hada Labo Tokyo is the first Japanese company to bring mass market products to the US. It’s sold at Ulta, Ulta.com and drugstore.com but I’ve also found it at Walgreens. One day I went to Walgreen and stopped dead in my tracks in the doorway blocking everyone since there were banners for Hada Labo. I was so excited that I rushed to the skincare section to see for myself.

Hada Labo Protecting Day Lotion SPF18

Hada Labo Protecting Day Lotion SPF18

Hada Labo Tokyo Hydrating Facial Cleanser

Hada Labo Tokyo Hydrating Facial Cleanser

Two products you should look for if you are at either of these stores or sites are Hada Labo Tokyo Protecting Day Lotion SPF 18 ($17.99) and Hada Labo Tokyo Hydrating Facial Cleanser ($11.99). They come with the “Marcia of Beauty Info Zone” stamp of approval.

Hada Labo Tokyo Hydrating Facial Cleanser

Hada Labo Tokyo Hydrating Facial Cleanser

The Hydrating Facial Cleanser is especially wonderful for my skin since it contains hyaluronic acid. Now I’m fully aware that you are washing this away but I still love the fact that it includes this great ingredient. This is a foaming cleanser that starts off as a cream.

Hada Labo Tokyo Hydrating Facial Cleanser

Hada Labo Tokyo Hydrating Facial Cleanser

I’m not sure if you can see just how rich and creamy it is. Many times a foaming cleanser is loose and doesn’t help with hydration but that’s not the case with this Hydrating Facial Cleanser. You can feel it moisturizing while cleansing at the same time. It’s a deep cleanser that cuts through the grime of the day while working to clean away any impurities.

Hada Labo Tokyo Hydrating Facial Cleanser

Hada Labo Tokyo Hydrating Facial Cleanser

Lately I’ve been keeping this in the shower since the plastic tube won’t break if it falls.

Key Ingredients:

  • Hyaluronic Acid PLUS: Powerful hydrator, merges with skin providing 2 times more hydration than regular HA to effectively restore skin’s natural hydrating levels.
  • Hyaloveil-P: Adhesive Hyaluronic Acid designed to adhere to skin, keeping it moist even after rinsing. Finishes the skin with fresh feeling.
  • Safe and gentle cleansers derived from natural amino acids.
Hada Labo Tokyo

Hada Labo Tokyo

Both the Hydrating Cleanser and Protecting Day Lotion SPF18 contain what Hada Labo Tokyo calls Super Hyaluronic Acid (or Hyaluronic Acid Plus). As you can see by my blurry picture, super hyaluronic acid is an excellent hydrator and skin plumper. If it’s going to make my skin retain any youthful qualities, then I want it in buckets!

Hada Labo Tokyo Protecting Day Lotion is the other product I’m using. I love that this has no fragrance and is oil free. My skin totally changes in hot weather. I’m sure I’m not alone when I say that my dry skin becomes an oily mess. I don’t always see the oil but I can feel it oozing inside me! I don’t break out often but in the summer I easily can. The fact that this moisturizer is oil free is a biggie for me. It’s non-comedogenic with a lightweight feel to it.

Hada Labo Protecting Day Lotion

Hada Labo Protecting Day Lotion

The only negative is that it has an SPF of 18. While it’s broad spectrum which is appreciated, I really wish it were a higher SPF. I’ve been wearing it on days that I wear a foundation or BB/CC Cream that has a higher number in sunscreen protection. I don’t spend a lot of time outside but I know that the sun can get to me anywhere I am.

Hada Labo Protecting Day Lotion

Hada Labo Protecting Day Lotion

This is one of the most comfortable moisturizers with sunscreen that I have which is why I reach for it so often. Plus with the Super Hyaluronic Acid addition I know my skin is being protected.

These products from Hada Labo Tokyo are ones I will keep in my rotation, even when I have more expensive ones around. I think it’s a great line in general and it’s one I’d really recommend to someone just starting out with quality skincare. Not only is it affordable but it has ingredients that help with premature aging. Plus it’s free from fragrance, parabens, dyes and mineral oils. Why not start off right and not have to correct your mistakes??

Have you become an afficionado of Hada Labo Tokyo? If not I think the time has come for you to start! — Marcia

P.S. If anyone from Hada Labo Tokyo is reading – please add more products for me!!
