#ITsAtSephora and we’re so excited

IT Cosmetics at Sephora

IT Cosmetics at Sephora

IT Cosmetics has arrived at our favorite cosmetic store – Sephora. There’s been a long journey for Jamie Kern Lima, the magician behind IT Cosmetics. I remember buying my first product from them and realizing that this was a line that I could get excited about. Now, years and years later, that realization has come true and I’m a big fan of the line.                               press sample

Lisa and I were each sent a box with the products that are exclusive to Sephora. We’re excited to teach you about them and have a giveaway in Lisa’s article. I told her to pick what she wanted to write about and I’d do the rest. Well I think she gave me a hint about what she thinks of me since everything she told me to review are anti-aging products. How dare she?? I’m actually so grateful since I put 4 items to work and my initial experiences with them are worth any insult she might have made.

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Lines Serum

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Lines Serum

BYE BYE LINES SERUM  aka Advanced Anti-Aging Wrinkle-Smoothing Miracle Concentrate ($58 for 1 fl oz/30 ml) is terrific for me. I’m all about two things, serums and eye creams, so this new product from IT Cosmetics is what I’d choose in a second. This is a powerful serum though it feels gentle on my skin. It’s absolutely loaded with goodies: anti-aging peptides, hydrolyzed collagen, caviar extract, sea water, argan oil, babassu oil and vitamins A, C, B1, B2, B5, B7, B9 and CoQ10. Wow, talk about hydration and improving the skin barrier. Clinical studies are off the wall with how great testers found this serum and I’m right there with them. Use it morning, night, or both for incredible moisturization. It has the most luscious orange fragrance to top it off and anything that will help prevent and blur my fine lines is on my A-list.

IT Cosmetics Anti-Aging Armour

IT Cosmetics Anti-Aging Armour

At my age I love that I can use a product with the word armour in it. IT COSMETICS ANTI-AGING ARMOUR “Super Smart Skin-Perfecting Beauty Fluid” ($38 1 fl oz) asked for me to pick it. This beauty fluid contains SPF50+. It is a hydrating sunscreen that brightens, protects, and repairs. It has color-correcting pigments to even out the appearance of skin tones. Shake the bottle first to mix ingredients and you’ll find a light beige fluid. I’m very fair so it does do color correcting for me but if I had darker than medium skin I’d want to check it out at Sephora personally to make sure the color worked. I’ve mixed it with a foundation that is too light for me and it upped the color level. Anti-aging Armour has everything I want within: peptides, niacin, hydrolyzed collagen, hyaluronic acid, and antioxidants. What more could this “old” lady want?

Bye Bye Under Eye eye cream

And here we are – another love of mine. The fact that IT Cosmetics at last has an eye cream has convinced me that I will for sure be a customer for life. BYE BYE UNDER EYE EYE CREAM ($48 0.5 fl oz/15 ml) – this phenomenon is made to Smooth, Brighten and Depuff. It contains ingredients to help it do that: anti-aging copper, blue algae, caffeine, vitamin C, collagen, cucumber extract, and peptides. The caffeine makes an instant difference with my puffiness and dark circles. My undereye area feels very soft and hydrated. The eye cream even looks refreshing with its light blue shade. It doesn’t interfere with my concealer so it’s a go day and night.

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Skin CC+ Skin Perfecting Brush #7-2

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Skin CC+ Skin Perfecting Brush #702

IT Cosmetics has always been known for their incredible brushes. This cruelty-free company creates amazing brushes that will make you want to toss others. Along comes this HEAVENLY SKIN CC+ SKIN-PERFECTING BRUSH, No. 702 ($48) to blow me out of the water. While this looks like another fabulous brush from IT, it’s actually a groundbreaker. It has skincare infused brush hair.

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Skin CC+ Skin Perfecting Brush #702

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Skin CC+ Skin Perfecting Brush #702

The fibers on this brush are infused with anti-aging collagen, silk, peptides, niacin, and antioxidants. This is so unique. It’s a perfect brush for skincare and color products. Can’t you almost feel the softness of the brush? It’s been created to optically blur and perfect skin by erasing the appearance of lines, pores and imperfections instantly. I’m using this for my skincare but I want another for my cosmetics now.

As you can see, I’m very impressed with the new inroads that IT COSMETICS has made. I’m kidding about the anti-aging part because I really believe that the sooner you start with anti-aging products of this quality, the better off you’ll be for it in the future. All 4 of these products are exclusive to Sephora so I’m recommending that if you don’t buy now that you put these on your wishlist for the holidays or when Sephora has their yearly discount. Which one tops your list?  —  Marcia

Take a trip to New Zealand to get anti-aging excellence with Snowberry


Today we’re taking you to New Zealand to learn about an anti-aging skin care brand that is award-winning. As a matter of fact the product we received for review, Snowberry New Radiance Face Serum with Cu-PEP™, was the only anti-aging serum in the world invited to be presented to the prestigious 23rd World Congress of Dermatology in Vancouver last year.

Here are a few important facts about Snowberry that we want to share before we get into our reviews:

  • Extremely suitable for sensitive skin

  • Formulated specifically to build the skin barrier function to avoid many typical skin conditions that contribute to premature ageing

  • As natural as possible (our serums contain some highly functional peptides that must be synthesised to be stable in a serum) but we use no petrochemicals, silicones, parabens, phenoxyethanol, volatile alcohols or anionic surfactants

  • Carbon neutral to point-of-sale anywhere in the world

  • No ingredients have been tested on animals and no Snowberry product is tested on animals in formulation or production

Snowberry Skincare is the creation of Soraya Hendesi, a cosmetician who was looking for skin care she could trust. She didn’t feel that the skin care that called itself ‘natural’ was in actuality what it said it was. She set out to create products with ingredients that she could trust. Snowberry isn’t tested on animals plus, other than honey and cultured pearl in some products, it doesn’t contain any animal product.

Snowberry New Radiance Face Serum

Snowberry New Radiance Face Serum


I’ve mentioned many times that I am a huge fan of serums. Whether they are facial serums or eye serums they fall into the category of love for me. Snowberry has added to this category with its serum that makes me feel like I’m using the purest form of skin care. There’s something about the beautiful packaging and the clear serum that creates a feeling of youthfulness.

Snowberry New Radiance SerumI always mention fragrance in reviews when it’s relevant and the reason it’s relevant here is that this serum has basically no fragrance. I love that! I’ve grown to like some fragrances so I’m not against them but this just smells fresh with a dash of coconut in it. The serum is a thin texture but there’s a nice substance to it. It applies like a breeze, taking about a minute to sink in. I usually apply this as my first skin care product, put on my eye makeup allowing it to absorb fully before continuing on. It’s advised to leave the serum on at least 5 minutes before applying a moisturizer or any other product. This will ensure that the revolutionary peptide technology is able to work without hindrance.snowberry-collageOne last thing before I hand this over to Lisa – Snowberry New Radiance Face Serum ($36, 30mL, 1 fl oz) plays well with everything. That’s the first thing I learned in school at 5 years old and now a “few” years later I want that to apply to my skin care. I get no balling up of product whether it’s moisturizer, foundation, or powder.


What intrigued me most about the Snowberry New Radiance Face Serum was the ingredient list. I had no idea what Cu-PEP™ was but it certainly caught my attention. Basically, Cu-PEP™ stimulates collagen and produces elastin in the skin using Copper Tripeptide-1, an anti-aging peptide that doesn’t irritate even the most sensitive skin. Cu-PEP™ actually delivers this excellent antioxidant into dermal cells, which is quite unique among skin serums.

The unique and effective delivery system means greater results that show up quickly, so it doesn’t take long before fine lines and wrinkles begin to disappear. The New Radiance Face Serum also has hyaluronic acid, a fabulous skin care ingredient that soothes skin and replenishes moisture.

Besides, who can resist packaging this adorable???  Snowberry New Radiance Face Serum is a winner from every angle and your skin will be too after using this for a month.

Cleanse and treat the New Zealand way with Ao Skincare

Ao SkincareI am always up for trying something new and the New Zealand line Ao Skincare intrigued me. Ao Skincare just launched in the US and is a dermatologist-led anti-aging cosmeceutical line.
Dermatologist Dr. Mark Gray has a chain of 17 clinics nationwide.  He noticed that a large percentage of people don’t stay loyal to their skin care brands.  Why? Mostly because products simply don’t live up to their hype, as well as because of the polarizing approach many companies take in the science vs. nature debate.

His vision?  To provide evidence-based skin care products with no compromises that are the perfect blend of science and nature.  This is what makes Ao Skincare different:

•  a unique delivery system that avoids the need for traditional emulsifiers. This means that the anti-aging ingredients are not damaged by heating them up to 190 degrees farenheit (as is normally the case in most skin care methods of manufacture).
‘next generation’ botanical boosters that potentiate (or boost) their already potent active anti-aging ingredients. Ingredients like Ferulic Acid and Bakuchiol are seldom used but have incredible efficacious results.
They are natural – the entire range has successfully been developed without the use of parabens, sulfates, PEGS, TEA, DEA, mineral oils, petrochemicals, and contains no artificial fragrances.
• The incorporation of a number of relatively un-discovered antipodean botanicals from New Zealand that have proven anti-aging efficacy.
The Ao Skincare line has six products that are helpfully numbered so you know the order in which to use. I was sent two products to test:  #1 Cleanser – Prepare ($40) and #4 Serum – Restore ($120).

Ao Skincare Cleanser - PrepareThe #1 Cleanser – Prepare is in an airless pump, which I think is always good news for any sort of skin care. It comes out like a gel and you smooth it onto dry skin first, then add water to create a very light foam. It doesn’t have much in terms of surfactants so it cleanses without stripping the skin or making it dry.

Ao Skincare Cleanser - PrepareAo Skincare Cleanser - PrepareThe ingredients include:

Pure New Zealand Artesian Water sourced from one of the purest places on earth; an aquifer beneath the ancient Kauri forests in the lush far north of New Zealand.

Totarol, an extract from the New Zealand Totara tree that contains powerful naturally sourced antioxidants which actively cleanse the skin.

Phormium Tenax (Harakeke) Seed Oil, a hydrating oil with omega-6 linoleic acid that helps repair the skin barrier.

Actinidia Chinensis (Kiwi) Seed Oil, with omega-3, alpha linolenic acid, which helps to maintain moisture in the skin and prevent drying and scaling.

I love this cleanser. It has no fragrance and it deep cleans beautifully. Although it has almost no foam after adding water, it does have enough slip to really work well with a device like the Clarisonic or the Luna. However, even just regular washing using hands gets a wonderful, somehow hydrating deep clean. In short, it’s great stuff.

Ao Skincare Serum - RestoreThe #4 Serum – Restore is a light serum that is full of peptides and vitamins that help repair, firm, and moisturize skin. Like the cleanser it is housed in an airless pump, which increases efficacy and longevity of the serum. (Why aren’t ALL skin care products packaged like this??)

The ingredients include:

Vitamins B3, B5 and C (Niacinamide, Panthenol, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate) that work together as antioxidants to promote the appearance of firm skin.

Ferulic Acid, a powerful antioxidant, which also increases the stability and potency of vitamin C.

Peptides and Phenyl t-Butylnitrone (Spin Traps) – these diverse molecules perform multiple functions important for optimum skin health.

New Zealand Manuka Honey, which nourishes and draws precious moisture deep into the skin and encourages skin vitality.

Ao Skincare Restore SerumAo Skincare Restore SerumI’ve been using this serum in the morning before moisturizing and at night after cleansing and toning. It has no fragrance and sinks in nicely, leaving my skin moist but not wet. I don’t even feel like I need to use an eye cream at night. So far my skin has loved this serum and it looks terrific. This is one bottle of product that I will completely finish and I know I will be sad when it’s gone.

The other products available from Ao Skincare include #2 Day Treatment – Fortify, #3 SPF 30 Sunscreen, #5 Night Treatment – Repair, and #6 Retinol – Rewind. There is also an option to purchase the entire range (in pretty cool packaging!) for 20% off.
I am very impressed with the New Zealand way of doing skin care and I hope you will take a look!  – Lisa

See why Vibriance is such a SUPER C serum


Vibriance Super-C is a new brand on the market and one that has impressed the Beauty Info Zone team since we received this. Right now Vibriance Super-C Serum is the one and only product on the market from them but we’re certainly hoping it’s not the last. It’s manufactured in a GMP accredited USA laboratory and meets the highest standards in the industry. Sample testing is conducted on site to ensure safety and efficacy.

Vibriance Super C Serum

Vibriance Super C Serum

According to Vibriance the advantage to this serum is that it can replace a large set of anti-aging products or even surgical procedures that are usually aren’t affordable to the average woman. Ingredients include Ethyl Ascorbic Acid which is believed to have superior benefits over standard L-Ascorbic Acid. Their key ingredients are embedded in lemon fruit water as the product base with a pH low enough to ensure potency of the ethyl ascorbic acid. The formula stimulates elastin, collagen, and the production of hyaluronic acid. No wonder we like it so much.


Vibriance Vitamin C Super Serum

Vibriance Vitamin C Super Serum

The first thing I noticed about the Vibriance Serum is the amazing fragrance. It’s not unusual for me to notice fragrance right off the bat but Super C Serum is a gold medal fragrance. It’s deliciously citrus and smells to me of fresh oranges with a hint of lemon. I have to say that it makes this serum even more pleasant having this.

Vibriance Vitamin Super C Serum

Vibriance Vitamin Super C Serum

The serum is a thin but not watery one that absorbs quickly on my skin. I apply this as the first product when I’m doing my regimen. It’s up to you whether you follow it with moisturizer, some people won’t have to but I always do. In the daytime I follow with Paula’s Choice Resist Daily Smoothing Treatment and in the evening I’m using either Mirakle Cream or Silkriller Moisture Cream.

Vibriance Super C Serum

Vibriance Super C Serum

One of the things you need to make sure about with any Vitamin C products is that the packaging is opaque so that no light can compromise the ingredients. Vibriance has done a great job with that and the method of distribution.

All in all this adds up to gold for me. I find that it hydrates, helps reduce lines, fights and reverses photo-aging (those darn sunspots), and smooths out my skin. The longer I use Vibriance Super C Serum the more I like it. I hope to see more Vibriance in their future and mine.


Vibriance Super C Penetrating Serum

Vitamin C is definitely a superhero in the skin care ingredient world. It does so many things that are particularly helpful for mature skin:  keeps skin younger looking by increasing cell turnover; plumps up skin by stimulating collagen synthesis; inhibits melanin production which results in a brighter skin tone; fights free radicals and prevents UV damage; acts as an anti-inflammatory.

At our age, what’s not to like about Vitamin C???

Vibriance Vitamin Super C Serum

Vibriance Vitamin Super C Serum

The packaging for the Vibriance Super C Serum is definitely super. The airless pump keeps the efficacy of the serum intact and also means that the Vitamin C won’t dry out skin. Vitamin C serums in a dropper bottle have a different chemical makeup which is far more likely to result in dry skin, a common complaint about Vitamin C products.

Vibriance Super C Penetrating Serum is moisturizing enough that those with oilier skin types won’t need any sort of moisturizer afterward. I have an oily t-zone with dry cheeks, so I typically follow the serum with a light moisturizer to my dry areas. After several weeks of use, I am particularly impressed with its effect on my skin tone. My uneven patches and freckles are lighter and my skin is much brighter. This is some really good stuff!

Vibriance Super C Penetrating Serum is Alcohol free, Paraben free, and not tested on animals.  ‘See’ what it’s all about at http://vibriance.com.

Purifying inside and out with DermaE

DermaEI was recently sent a beautiful gift box full of all sorts of ‘good for you’ goodies. derma e’s National Educator, Jaime cane, did a wonderful job curating this box for ‘beauty gurus’.

There are lots of things we can do to feel great and look even better. This beauty box listed some important points: be sure to exfoliate so your skin care fully absorbs and works most effectively. Love your greens to stay  healthy on the inside. Stay hydrated by drinking lots of water – it helps keep the wrinkles away. And get 7 or 8 hours of sleep at night to prevent puffiness, acne breakouts, and premature aging.


Included in the box was an awesome derma e water bottle, some delicious Vita Coco Lemonade (soooo good!!) and some Green Superfood, which is a terrific way to get every bit of nutrition you need to stay looking and feeling healthy.

DermaE Purifying Gel Cleanser

Exfoliation is the best way to make sure all of your products are working as hard as possible. I really like derma e’s Purifying Gel Cleanser ($15.50) because it exfoliates so gently. I use my Luna cleansing brush with it no problem, and I think it would be perfect to use with a Clarisonic.  I have been working out like crazy this summer and I always wash my face with this when I get home because it is perfect for removing sweat, toxins, and bacteria.

This cleanser is pH balanced and has no fragrance or sulfates. Ingredients include these minerals and natural toxin fighters:

Kimarine® Wakame is a potassium-rich, magnesium-rich seaweed that is clinically proven to protect skin against environmental pollutants (exhaust fumes, cigarette smoke, heavy metals).

Bladderwrack is an antioxidant-rich, mineral-rich seaweed known for its water-binding properties, supporting healthy skin hydration and nourishment.

Activated Charcoal, known for absorbing 100 to 200 times its weight in impurities, helps thoroughly remove toxins from the skin’s surface.

Green Tea delivers potent antioxidant defense, and a base of Aloe Leaf Juice revives skin with fresh, healthy hydration. 

DermaE Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask

Once a week, I use the Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask ($19.50) for an even deeper clean. It detoxes skin in two ways:

(1) Natural clays infused with Kimarine® Wakame, Bladderwrack and Activated Charcoal lift out dirt, oil and bacteria to decongest pores as the mask dries

(2) Apricot Seed Powder exfoliates away dead skin cells and captured debris upon removal. Kaolin and Bentonite Clays absorb excess oils and impurities, relieving skin congestion.

With many of the same powerful ingredients as the Purifying Gel Cleanser, this treatment mask is the perfect complimentary deep clean.

DermaE Purifying Youth SerumWith skin clean and ready to make the most of any treatment, a great option is the Purifying Youth Serum ($29.50). Holy smokes is this good stuff! Awesome ingredients like Kimarine® Wakame,  Bladderwrack, and Green Tea together in an Aloe Leaf Juice Base makes for super healthy, glowy skin. It makes a great primer for foundation, too. And like all derma e products, it’s 100% vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, mineral oil-free, lanolin-free, gluten-free, and GMO-free.

You can find these great products at Ulta and Whole Foods.  Pick them up and get healthy inside and out this summer!  – Lisa

An introduction to Aveeno Absolutely Ageless with a giveaway

It’s always fun to receive a delivery from Aveeno and their new Absolutely Ageless products are a perfect addition to their already great line.

Yes, it’s their new blackberry fragranced Absolutely Ageless™ products that are a delicious mix Aveeno concentration of ACTIVE NATURALS® Blackberry Complex infused with vitamins, antioxidants, and anti-aging ingredients. If I have to have fragrance in my products then let them be yummy.

Blackberry Jam - amazingly good from Mrs. Millers

Blackberry Jam – amazingly good from Mrs. Millers

The AVEENO® Absolutely Ageless™ Collection was created to help reduce the visible effects of elastin and collagen loss, but to also nourish skin, to keep it looking younger, longer. Who wouldn’t want that?

all 5 of the new Aveeno Absolutely Ageless™ products

all 5 of the new Aveeno Absolutely Ageless™ products

Let’s start with cleansing our skin with the Nourishing Cleanser. This is gentle enough for both morning and night. I keep it in my shower because of the plastic pump. I don’t have to worry about breakage and it’s sealed well so water doesn’t seep in. This removes dirt and makeup and totally refreshes my skin making it ready for my day. It’s hydrating without being too rich so it doesn’t clog pores at all. The MSRP is $7.99 so it’s an affordable option in your life.

AVEENO® Absolutely Ageless™ Intensive Renewal Serum is a wonderful serum as it contains everything that Aveeno is known for including this new Active Naturals Blackberry Complex. It’s a thin serum that absorbs pretty quickly without leaving any stickiness behind. The top is a pump so you aren’t compromising the inside. While the MSRP is $19.99 which is a good price for this top notch serum, Amazon has it for $12.86 making it a steal.

AVEENO® Absolutely Ageless™ Intensive Renewal Serum

AVEENO® Absolutely Ageless™ Intensive Renewal Serum

The next step for me is to apply eye cream since I want everything absorbed before it’s time to put on any cosmetics. Aveeno didn’t forget my favorite product when they came out with AVEENO® Absolutely Ageless™ Eye Cream. This 0.5 oz eye cream is the perfect size for home and travel. The slant tip makes it easy to apply without using your fingers if you want. If you want to lose your dark circles and that pesky puffiness this is a great way to go. You know I’m a nut about eye cream and it’s wonderful to find one so well priced. And I don’t notice a fragrance!!!!

Aveeno Absolutely Ageless Nourishing Cleanser, Eye cream, Intensive Renewal Serum

Aveeno Absolutely Ageless Daily Moisturizer, Eye cream, Intensive Renewal Serum

Moving on we need moisturizer and Aveeno Absolutely Ageless has both a daily moisturizer and a night cream. I’m always delighted when there’s sunscreen in my moisturizer since it saves me an extra step. AVEENO® Absolutely Ageless™ Daily Moisturizer with Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 fits that bill. The moisturizer has the strongest fragrance of the 5 products but you won’t notice it after a while. It comes with a pump applicator. As with all of these products it’s dermatologist test and won’t clog pores. We need both moisturizer and sunscreen daily to keep our skin looking youthful. Whenever I’d take my 90 year old+ mother to the dermatologist Aveeno is what they’d recommend for her.

For night we have AVEENO® Absolutely Ageless™ Restorative Night Cream. This is the only product that’s in a jar. This night cream is thick and creamy having the most delicious fragrance of all these. This is much more intense than the Daily Moisturizer so you need to scoop it out and cover your entire face and neck area with it. Do NOT forget your neck. You are doing everything you can to keep your face hydrated and more youthful but it’s your neck that is a tell tale giveaway of age (example Meg Ryan at the Tony’s!). This is great for dry skin especially.

Taking beauty sleep to another level: Sustainable Youth Super Boost Night Serum

Sustainable YouthI can justify many things and hitting the snooze button so many times my alarm actually shuts off is an easy one! There is truth to the saying ‘You need your beauty sleep’ because sleep is good for you. Sustainable Youth®  wants to super charge your beauty sleep with their Super Boost Night Serum™. This serum takes that nocturnal slumber time and maximizes the regeneration that already happens as you sleep.

   pr sample

Channing Tatum

I’ll bet you had no idea was happening while you were dreaming about Channing Tatum last night:

Skin cell renewal and repair rates are slightly faster and more effective

The skin is more acidic and its temperature is higher in the evening than morning

Blood flow, amino acid content and trans-epidermal water loss are roughly 25 percent higher at night

Oil production by skin glands is half of what it is at noon

At night your skin devotes its energy to renewal. Potent actives delivered in a pure system applied to the skin at a time when permeability is at its highest will provide optimal results

Sustainable Youth Super Boost Night Serum

Sustainable Youth Super Boost Night Serum

While your skin is in repair mode at night, the Super Boost Night Serum works on restoring elasticity, firming and tightening skin. It does this through their patent-pending super ingredient, alasta®.  alasta® has been clinically proven to firm skin and promote elasticity – in fact studies show it increases these areas up to 72%.  

There are other terrific ingredients in this serum that work as anti-inflammatories and antioxidants, including licorice root, white mulberry, green tea, fig and cucumber extracts. All together, this fabulous mix firms, treats, and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  

Sustainable Youth Super Boost Night Serum

Sustainable Youth Super Boost Night Serum

I really like this serum. It has a slight fragrance that dissipates very quickly. I apply it at night after cleansing and toning, and for the first half hour or so my face feels oddly tight, almost like it has a mask on it. After that, the effect goes away, and I have to say that in the morning my skin really looks terrific. There is a noticeable lift and my skin has a glow to it. I am impressed!

If you are interested in some serious multi-tasking while getting your beauty sleep, you can find Sustainable Youth online at sustainableyouth.com. They also have a really interesting looking eye serum that has incredible before and after pics for eyelids…be sure to take a look!  – Lisa
