Add some natural skincare to your life with Geneva Naturals

Geneva Naturals

Sometimes I just take things for granted, for example thinking that I wrote about Geneva Naturals Skincare so that you’d know about this natural, well-priced line. And then I realize that I’m the only one who knows this since I forgot to tell you. Well the time has come to reveal the secrets of the two Geneva Naturals Skincare products that I’ve been using since October!

Geneva Naturals is a relatively new brand on the market and is sold on Amazon. There are 5 products in the line with the core of the line having 3: Advanced Vitamin C+E Serum, Advanced Anti-Aging Cream with SPF, and Advanced Anti-Aging Retinol Cream. I have the two creams and now I’m sorry I didn’t request the Serum when the company sent these for review.

Geneva Natural Anti-Aging Cream with SPF 20 and Anti-Aging Retinol Cream

Geneva Naturals was created in a collaboration with a leading Swiss dermatologist. Their mission is to offer natural, effective skincare that doesn’t break the bank. They use non-toxic ingredients to bring ageless beauty our way.

I’ve actually used this for a month at a time twice over the last 8 months. When I first received it I was using it right away but then in the craziness of my last broken leg I put it aside and only found it again in March. So I started using it again. Now I find myself reaching for it a few times a week, in between other skincare products.

Geneva Naturals Advanced Anti-Aging Cream (unscented) with sunscreen SPF20

Geneva Naturals Advanced Anti-Aging Facial Moisturizer ($19.99) is available in 2 versions with one being unscented. YEA for that option! The ingredients are pretty wonderful featuring “Edelweiss, a special anti-aging plant that grows in the Swiss Alps. Combined with Hyaluronic Acid, Coconut Oil, Moringa Oil and Vitamin E this day cream is specifically formulated to restore firmness and provide and every day protection from the sun for a more youthful and vibrant skin.

Advanced Anti-Aging Cream (unscented) with sunscreen SPF20

Here’s what I learned about Edelweiss: it’s a short lived flower found in the Alps and it has natural levels of UV protection along high levels of Leontopodic Acids A and B for remarkable anti-inflammatory properties. There’s also natural sun protection in Coconut Oil so that when they combine these ingredients they end up with a powerful protective product. As you know (or should know by now) you need suncare protection every single day of the year. Now that the sun is out for longer periods of time it means you need to be even more careful than before.

Geneva Naturals Advanced Anti-Aging Cream with sunscreen SPF20

Advanced Anti-Aging Cream with sunscreen SPF20 is a thick lotion that takes a few minutes to absorb. I have never found it interfered with my foundation which is important. Once something balls up … out it goes!

Geneva Naturals Anti-Aging Retinol Cream

At night I switch to Geneva Naturals Anti-Aging Retinol Cream ($23.99). I don’t normally use retinol so I look for products that have fairly low doses of the ingredient. It’s perfect for me since I haven’t had any reaction to this anti-aging cream. It too uses Edelweiss extract to help stimulate cell regeneration and build collagen to diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and blemishes.

Geneva Naturals Anti-Aging Retinol Cream (partial list of ingredients)

Retinol has many benefits including the fact that it can interrupt the free-radical damage process that causes wrinkling and aging signs. You aren’t ever too young or too old to add this into your skincare regimen since it increases collagen production, helps fade discoloration from sun damage and hopefully builds elastin.

Geneva Naturals Anti-Aging Retinol Cream

The Retinol Cream has a thinner consistency than the Anti-Aging Cream and it does have a fragrance that is on the natural side and doesn’t linger long. This cream works particularly well with serums and even with added Hyaluronic Acid products.

All Geneva Naturals products are paraben-free, sulfate-free, phthalate-free & cruelty free. If you are looking for an affordable natural brand I recommend Geneva Naturals. You’ll feel like you are using a luxury brand and you’ll appreciate that the cost is one not normally associated with luxury. I’ve been very happy with my experiences with these products and plan to keep them in my routine.  —  Marcia

Got wrinkles? Get retinol. NIA24 Intensive Retinol Repair

I have a birthday coming up and while I love birthdays I don’t love the wrinkles that seem to come with every one the past few years. My favorite wrinkle-fighting ingredient is retinol, so I jumped at the chance to test the NIA24 Intensive Retinol Repair ($130).          pr sampleNia 24 Intensive Retinol Repair
This moisturizing serum combines retinol with niacin, which actually helps speed up the process of retinol treating skin while also preventing any irritation. It also has sodium hyaluronate for major hydration, which plumps up skin and gives immediate gratification against wrinkles.Nia 24 Intensive Retinol RepairNia 24 Intensive Retinol Repair
  • Continuous, deep delivery of Pro-Niacin® strengthens the skin barrier.
  • Pro-Niacin® is clinically shown to visibly improve skin tone, texture and hyperpigmentation.
  • Retinol increases cell turnover and collagen to improve texture, tone, smoothness, firmness.
  • Botanical Complex of Enteromorpha Compressa Extract (seaweed) and Caesalpinia Spinosa Gumactive promote a stronger dermal matrix that minimizes wrinkles.
  • Hexapeptide stimulates high quality collagen with peptides to fight wrinkles.
  • Sodium Hyaluronate is a potent humectant that hydrates skin and locks in moisture.

Nia 24 Intensive Retinol RepairI find the NIA24 Intensive Retinol Repair to be gentle and very effective. The packaging is perfect for keeping the efficacy of the retinol and while it increases cell turnover it doesn’t leave skin dry or irritated. This is about as perfect as a retinol product gets.

If your birthday count is now also competing with your wrinkle count, I highly recommend you try a retinol product – and the NIA24 Intensive Retinol Repair is a fantastic way to go.  – Lisa

Lisa’s Top Five Favorites from Paula’s Choice Cosmetics

Top Five Paula's Choice Cosmetics Favorites

There are many, many reasons why I am such a huge fan of the Paula’s Choice line, but really what it comes down to is this:  Paula’s Choice is full of no BS, workhorse products that are the foundation of an excellent skin care and color cosmetics arsenal. Is every single product my favorite? No, there are some products (hello foundations and concealer!) that have never worked for me. Is this a perfect line? No, there are too many skin care products with similar functions and the names are way too complicated and confusing. That said, this is the line I recommend for anyone new to beauty products, for anyone looking for effective yet gentle skin care, and especially for any teenagers who want the perfect products to treat their crazy skin care needs.

paula-begoun

Love her or hate her, Paula Begoun has had a huge impact on the cosmetics industry. Me? I love her.  Way back in the day I bought her books, read them over and over, underlined, highlighted, tabbed…I subscribed to her newsletter and saved every single one, pouring over them and making my wish lists of the best things to purchase. When she started her own cosmetics and skin care line I wondered if she could keep her objectivity. Much to my delight, I think Paula is still the same sort of prickly but totally no-nonsense expert that I can always count on for fantastic advice.

I have way more than five favorites from Paula’s Choice, but here are my top five products that I purchase over and over (and always have several backups waiting the wings just in case!). I have chosen only skin care items so I didn’t even have to wrestle with my favorite color items.

  1. Gentle Makeup Remover ($16)
  2. Professional Blemish Extracting Tool ($14)
  3. Clear Extra Strength Daily Skin Clearing Treatment with 5% Benzoyl Peroxide ($19)
  4. Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment ($56)
  5. 10% Niacinamide Booster($42)
Paula's Choice Gentle Makeup Remover

Paula’s Choice Gentle Makeup Remover

My first favorite is the Gentle Touch Makeup Remover. This is the very best makeup remover I have ever tried and I buy this four bottles at a time whenever there is a sale. I usually wear full coverage foundation and my skin tends to break out especially in my t-zone. So I take cleansing very seriously, and the first step is always makeup remover. This dual-phase liquid makeup remover needs to be shaken first and after squirting some onto a cleansing pad you wipe off makeup prior to cleansing. It removes everything, even waterproof mascara and the most tenacious lipstick. It’s completely safe to use on eyes, and it leaves skin feeling moist and hydrated but not oily or greasy.

One end of the Professional Blemish Extracting Tool

One end of the Professional Blemish Extracting Tool

The other end of the Professional Blemish Extracting Tool

The other end of the Professional Blemish Extracting Tool

My second favorite is the dual-ended Professional Blemish Extracting Tool. Extraction is necessary and correct extraction is essential!! PC has this fantastic stainless steel extractor that safely removes blackheads and whiteheads without tearing the skin and making a bad situation even worse.  You’ve got to get those blackheads out – if you don’t, you risk enlarged pores and serious infection.  Plus, congestion of the pores is painful to have and painful for other people to look at. This baby puts pressure around the congested pore without digging in like your fingernails do, providing even pressure that gently pushes the blackhead or whitehead out of the pore. It is the BOMB.

Clear Extra Strength Daily Skin Clearing Treatment with 5% Benzoyl PeroxideMy third favorite is the Clear Extra Strength Daily Skin Clearing Treatment with 5% Benzoyl Peroxide. This is a fantastic spot treatment that works quickly without stressing already stressed skin. It’s not just triage – it also prevents future breakouts and controls very oily areas. I use it around my nose and on my chin every morning and night, and sometimes I use it as an all-over mask in the evening. This 5% benzoyl peroxide acne treatment is fantastic for teens and it works on every skin type. I find that most benzoyl peroxide treatments have other ingredients that irritate and dry out skin, but this light lotion is super gentle and has nothing irritating in it at all.

Paulas Choice Retinol Treatment 2

My fourth favorite is the Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment. This is an exfoliating skin treatment that is applied after cleansing.  Here are all the skin ailments it treats:

  • Acne Breakouts, Anti-Aging, Brown Spots, Wrinkles
  • Firms skin, smoothing deep wrinkles and fine lines
  • Reduces dark spots and uneven skin tone, refines pore size

This is a retinol product and I know that some people have problems tolerating retinol. However, even if you have a history of difficulty with retinols, I urge you to give this a try. It has licorice, oat extract and other anti-irritants that make it great for sensitive skin. My skin has always reacted well to retinols, and this product in particular gives me beautiful and immediate results. My skin is much smoother, pores smaller, fine lines less noticeable. Retinol actually stimulates collagen production, so the results over time are fantastic.

Paula's Choice 10% Niacinamide BoosterPaula's Choice 10% Niacinamide Booster

My fifth favorite is the 10% Niacinamide Booster, one of Paula’s newest products for reducing pore size. My first bottle was sent as a press sample, but I used that all up and have already bought another. This is great stuff that makes the rest of my skin care even better. Here’s why your pores get larger as you age: skin naturally sheds built up oil and dirt. When we are young, this process happens pretty quickly, so our skin looks almost as if it doesn’t even have pores. As we get older, especially after age 30, this process slows down so dirt and oil stays inside our pores longer. The increased collection of dirt and oil causes pores to stretch out and become enlarged. Exfoliating on a regular basis helps your skin’s shedding process, but even with the most diligent skin care maintenance pores become enlarged.  The 10% Naicinamide Booster does four main things: improves uneven skin tone, reduces the appearance of pore size, improves skin texture, and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Niacinamide is a form of Vitamin B3. It’s a very exciting ingredient that has been scientifically proven to seriously shrink enlarged pores as well as wrinkles. What is really cool about this product is that it’s a super lightweight serum that can be used alone or added to another serum or moisturizer. I put a few drops in my treatment serum every morning and every night and I am truly impressed with my results!

If you are a long time Paula’s Choice fan, I hope that my picks give you incentive to try them. If you haven’t tried this line out, I can’t recommend it highly enough.  I know that you will quickly find your five favorites that will become staples of your skin care regimen.

Click on this link for $10 off your first order if you are new to Paula’s Choice  This is part of the Refer-a-Friend program and will give me credit towards a future Paula’s Choice order. Paula always has specials going – right now the special is free shipping and a free full size Clinical Body Butter for all orders over $50.  – Lisa

Sleep your lines away with RoC® Retinol Correxion products and enter our giveaway.

RoC

Did you ever wonder how RoC® skincare got its name? As an ambassador for RoC® we get products to use and give away to our readers. But I never really thought about how it was named. I assumed it was named for the Retinol that is used in their products but I’ve learned that RoC® was originally named for the reputable Parisian pharmacy, Roge Cavailles, where Dr. Jean-Charles Lissarrague (the creator of RoC®) began crafting revolutionary products that promoted skin health. This tidbit satisfies my curiosity but so do the wonderful skincare products that RoC® produces.

RoC Retinol Correxion

RoC Retinol Correxion

Today I have two sets of skincare that can be won by two US or Canadian subscribers. RoC® Retinol Correction Deep Wrinkle Night Cream and RoC® Retinol Correxion Sensitive Night Cream and Sensitive Eye Cream. One set is sure to be perfect for you.

RoC® RETINOL CORREXION DEEP WRINKLE NIGHT CREAM has a unique formula designed to work through the night—when skin is believed to be most receptive—to smooth and visibly reduce the appearance of even your deep wrinkles. It works on expression lines and wrinkles, even deep wrinkles. This night cream helps firm up your skin.

RoC Deep Wrinkle Night Cream and Retinol Correxion Eye Cream

RoC® RETINOL CORREXION EYE CREAM is wonderful and will visibly reduce wrinkles around your eyes as well as crow’s feet. It works on dark circles and puffiness too. Now with all those benefits don’t you have at least one (if not all 4) of these problems? This contains retinol and an exclusive mineral blend. Recommended use to see full results is 12 weeks. I test eye creams all the time but when I’m in between testing I come back to RoC®. “This non-greasy moisturizing cream is especially formulated for use around the delicate eye area. It evens out the look of dark circles and helps to reduce the look of puffiness in four weeks, and it visibly reduces the appearance of wrinkles around the eyes and crow’s feet in 12 weeks.”

RoC® Eye Cream

RoC® Eye Cream

RoC® RETINOL CORREXION SENSITIVE NIGHT CREAM is specially designed for retinol beginners or people with skin that’s sensitive to retinol. This is the one I prefer since I my skin is sensitive to retinol and I use it but sparingly. It’s a milder anti-aging formula that works through the night to target and fight wrinkles with minimal or no irritation. I’m all about hyaluronic acid and RoC® RETINOL CORREXION SENSITIVE NIGHT CREAM contains it to bind essential moisture to your skin to re-plump wrinkles. This is both oil-free and noncomedogenic.

RoC Sensitive Night Cream

RoC Retinol Correxion Sensitive Night Cream and Sensitive Eye Cream

RoC® Retinol Correxion Sensitive Eye Cream is the perfect companion for the Sensitive Night Cream since it too was created for skin that is retinol sensitive. This is a milder version than the Retinol Correxion Eye Cream but equally effective. Be sure you use an SPF product under your eyes any time you use a product with retinol in it and will be outdoors. This goes for all 4 seasons. Our eye area is just as sensitive to the dire effects of the sun as the rest of our skin.

RoC Sensitive Eye Cream

The promise of younger looking skin with the Obagi 360™ System – (giveaway time)

Obagi 360™ System

Obagi 360™ System

Obagi has long been a heavy hitter in the skin care arena. This line was one of the first to be popular among dermatologists and it continues to be an extremely popular medical-strength line. I was sent the Obagi 360™ System to test, which is a 3-part system that is perfect for younger people. Not that I qualify as a ‘younger person’ anymore – luckily I did find this system to be quite versatile!

There are three products in the Obagi 360™ SystemExfoliating Cleanser, Retinol 0.5%, and HydraFactor Broad Spectrum SPF 30. This simple but effective 3-step system is perfect for teenagers and those in their twenties. The major concerns addressed include the appearance of fine lines, dull skin tone, uneven skin tone, and clogged pores.

Obagi 360™ Exfoliating Cleanser

Obagi 360™ Exfoliating Cleanser

The Exfoliating Cleanser is a gentle cleanser that gets rid of dry skin and helps unclog pores. It works like your typical exfoliating cleanser – apply to damp skin, gently massage in, then rinse. I use a makeup remover first so the cleanser can really penetrate and clear out trapped dirt and oil.  The exfoliators are fine enough that it works with a Luna or Clarisonic, and it preps the skin perfectly for the Retinol treatment. The key exfoliating agents are soft beads that mechanically re-surface the skin, and linked papain, which is an innovative, stabilized form of papaya fruit acid.

Obagi 360™ Retinol

Obagi 360™ Retinol 0.5%

The Retinol 0.5% is no joke. Results happen quickly so it’s not long before you see an improvement in collagen and sun damage. The packaging is perfect for maintaining the efficacy of retinol. The question will be whether or not your skin can tolerate this level of retinol, because it’s definitely medical grade stuff. My skin loves it, but I had to build up to using it every other day. I still can’t use it every day – if I do that, my skin gets really sensitive and I get a burning sensation. So you’ll just need to experiment to find out what you can tolerate initially, gradually increasing application as your skin gets used to the product. The Retinol 0.5% truly resurfaces skin and gives amazing, measurable results.  Younger people will also appreciate this for acne prevention.

HydraFactor Broad Spectrum SPF 30

HydraFactor Broad Spectrum SPF 30

The HydraFactor Broad Spectrum SPF 30 is an effective moisturizer that also prevents skin damage thanks to the protection from UVA/UVB rays. This is a thick moisturizer and a little goes a long way. It feels very soothing after applying the Retinol product. If you needed a nighttime moisturizer you will probably want to supplement this system since the SPF isn’t needed at night.

The Obagi 360™ System is indeed a simple but effective system that works for any age skin, but it particularly suited to those in their teens and twenties. It’s only available through a physician’s office and if you visit the Obagi website (obagi.com) you can find a doctor near you who carries the line. They also have a neat feature that helps you identify which Obagi products are right for you, so take a look even if you aren’t a ‘youngster’ anymore! – Lisa

GIVEAWAY INFORMATION: We have a new Obagi Exfoliating Cleanser for this giveaway. To win this you must be a Beauty Info Zone subscriber from the US or Canada. This ends on 4/13/16 at 11:59 p.m. eastern time. If comments close please email us at [email protected] and label it Obagi; leave your comment in the email and continue on. Everyone needs exfoliation so even without the entire system you’ll love this.

Are your retinol products working up to their potential? Boost them with Retinol Anti-Aging Facial Oil

L de L Retinol Anti Aging Facial OilRetinol is one of the wonder ingredients in the skin care world. With all the great things it can do, it pays to ensure it can reach its potential. I was sent the Retinol Anti-Aging Facial Oil to try and I put it to work hoping it would boost my retinol products into overdrive.

Retinol products does much for skin – it treats acne, hyperpigmentation, and wrinkles. It even reduces the size of your pores. While some people don’t tolerate retinol well, my skin loves it. Retinol actually stimulates collagen production, so the results over time are fantastic.

L de L Retinol Anti Aging Facial Oil

Skincare L de L Cosmetics® Retinol Anti-Aging Facial Oil (SRP $26.00 – 1 Fl. Oz. / 30 mL) was launched last June and it’s a very interesting product. It’s a facial oil that preps skin for retinol treatments. I love facial oils, which sound like they would be greasy and pore-clogging but are in fact great moisturizers. Retinol Anti-Aging Facial Oil is a very light oil with African Marula Oil and Sea Buckhorn’s Omega 7 & 9 Fatty Acids. It moisturizes skin and delivers nutrients that fight wrinkles and increase elasticity. The ingredients include nine rich essential oils plus Vitamins A, C and Argan Oil (Vitamin E). There is a lot of antioxidant power in this oil.

Properly prepped skin helps treatment serums do their job even more effectively and the Retinol Anti-Aging Facial Oil is made to prepare skin for retinol treatments. While the Skincare L de L Cosmetics® line is a retinol-based anti-aging skin care line, I like how the facial oil is recommended for use before any retinol treatment. You can also mix a few drops of this oil into your moisturizer or foundation for a little extra luminosity.

Retinol Anti-Aging Facial Oil is available at ULTA Beauty stores, Harmon Face Values at select Bed Bath Beyond stores, as well as online at www.retinoltreatment.com.  – Lisa
