Solomomo Skin Wand is the skincare tool of the future – today

 

solomomo-1

Welcome to the future of skincare. Its name is SOLOMOMO and it’s coming our way.solomomo_text_logo_sm

This is a sponsored post with Solomomo but all opinions and experiences are my own.

Solomomo Home Skin Wand

SOLOMOMO SKIN WAND is a skin insight machine that will help you find out exactly what your skin needs are. My experience is that every time I’m in a skincare department the MA that I’m working with will tell me my skin is dehydrated. It’s a selling technique yet I’ve bought the recommended product time and again. How do I know for sure if it’s working? Especially since the next time I’m shopping I’ll hear that same spiel again.

Now I plan on relying on the Solomomo Skin Wand to help me know what’s happening with my skin. When you open your box you’ll find the Solomomo Skin Wand (home version) attached to the skincare tablet. You turn on the touch screen tablet and it will bring you to the main screen.

It’s even prepared for future products and multiple users. The wand does all the work.

There are 19 points that the wand walks you through on your face to get a complete picture. Hold the wand flush to your makeup free skin, click the button on the wand and you’ll be capturing a picture of your skin at each of those 19 points.

Each point takes just a few seconds so it’s not like you are spending hours getting this right. After you are done you’ll use your personal wifi connection to send your images to the company for a complete analysis. They in turn will return a report to you. Your results are private and won’t be seen by anyone else. You can use your Solomomo home version of the Skin Wand whenever you want to see how your skin is doing.

Solomomo Skin Wand is so new that if you buy it today you won’t receive it until late February but I can wait that amount of time to learn exactly what all the skincare I use does for me. I was sent a promo model that isn’t fully set up to do all my face but I was able to see many aspects of what it can do. When you and I do buy it on pre-order though the cost will go from $199 to $99. Don’t wait until it’s too late to get this special promo price here. Ask for it as a gift (my birthday is in January – hint to my husband) or use your Christmas money for it. Don’t you want to be ready for the future?  —  Marcia

Conture Kinetic Skin Toning System – my first impression

The Conture Kinetic Skin Toning System is ready to change my skin and I’m excited about it. I’m writing this pretty early into my trial of the system and wanted to share this before with you now with a follow up after I’ve used this for another 6-8 weeks.

Conture Kinetic Skin Toning System

PR Sample

Why should you care about the Conture? If you are interested in your skin improving in the following ways, that’s why you should care!

  • improved skin radiance and luminosity
  • improvement in smoothness and evenness
  • lessened crows feet, fine lines, and wrinkles
  • more visible facial firmness
  • Conture Kinetic Skin Toning System

    Conture Kinetic Skin Toning System

     

There’s so much to explain about the Conture yet it’s so easy to use. Once your machine is charged it’s ready for you to use twice a day. Cleanse your face. Apply a pea sized drop of the Kinetic Treatment Serum on the desired area of treatment. Tone.

Inside the box you’ll find three Kinetic Skin Care products: Kinetic Treatment Serum, Kinetic Ignition AM Lotion, and Kinetic PM Recovery Creme. You’ll also find the Conture Device, USB Charging Cord and the user manual.

Kinetic Treatments for Conture

Kinetic Treatments for Conture

When you are ready to use the Conture pick your targeted area. I’ve started with my face (specifically my jawline, chin, upper lip, and cheeks). There are three speeds on the Conture: Face, Mild, Neck. I’m using Face and will soon move into the area around my eyes for which I’ll need Mild.

I expected to use this in a circular motion since that’s how most devices work but this isn’t most devices. To use this you move it side by side suctioning one small area, overlapping it and suctioning the area next to it, and so on. It feels like a teeny vacuum on your skin but one that isn’t left on for very long. When you place the device against your skin you are creating a vacuum seal. Glide it from your chin to your ear (as an example) leaving it on for 3-5 seconds. Then move it to another section to do more of the area. There’s a great video that taught me how to use this properly that you should watch.

Targeting the Jawline, Jowls and Cheeks for toning

After using this my face shows redness but that’s soon gone. It goes away in minutes. There is no pain or discomfort at all with the Conture system. I use the Kinetic moisturizers as soon as I’m done but later I apply other skincare.

To purchase this set try the TV Offer which will be $29.95 the first month (with free shipping) and then $59.95 for the next 5 months. There is a 60 day money back guarantee though with the Conture Kinetic Skin Toning System so if you don’t see results, return before your 60 days are up. I have a discount code for 20% off if you decide you want to see the results for yourself. Just use BeautyZone20 at checkout.

I can’t say I’ve seen results just yet and when I do I’m sure they’ll be subtle which is just fine with me. I said yes to the Conture Kinetic Skin Toning System because I’m determined to keep my skin looking younger than my birth certificate says. —  Marcia

Anti-Aging with red light therapy by Sonulase review and giveaway

Sonulase

Sonulase

It wasn’t that long ago that having the technology to bring red light therapy and the power of a UV Light was too expensive for the average consumer. But thanks to SONULASE we can have just that at a price we can afford.

*sponsored post and giveaway with our honest opinions

SONULASE is the first device that combines medical grade age fighting Red Light with daily cleansing. It’s made to stimulate collagen production while strengthening sagging skin and wrinkles. It does it all while you cleanse. Sadly collagen production pretty much stops by the age of 25. Since collagen plumps facial skin it keeps it looking fuller and more youthful. Sonaluse wants to stimulate natural collagen growth with the effects of RED LIGHT therapy.

Sonulase

Sonulase

Sonulase looks like the sonic cleansing brushes that we are used to seeing and using but there’s a big difference. It’s to be used for daily cleansing as well as red light UV therapy.

Sonulase in action

Sonulase in action

Mode One is Daily Cleansing with RED Light Therapy. Not only are you cleansing and exfoliating but you are adding the power of red light.

Mode Two is Targeted RED Light Therapy. With Mode two you choose two days a week to target areas you want to work on to build collagen and increase volume from beneath skin surface.

Join Marcia and Lisa in learning more about this wonder anti-aging device and learn how to win one for yourself.

MARCIA explains the Daily Cleansing with Red Light Therapy:

Sonulase brush

Sonulase brush

The Sonulase brush isn’t unique looking when you first remove it from the box. We’ve seen this before and many of us cleanse with something similar. The difference though is when you use this for cleansing and can turn on the red light to add some collagen stimulation.

Sonulase cleansing brush

Sonulase cleansing brush

Using a sonic cleansing brush helps exfoliate your skin and cleanse pores better. The red light is new technology that is unique to Sonulase. This gives the collagen boost your skin needs to speed up cellular turnover.

Sonulase is also unique because of the UV Cleanlight Technology that is built into the charging system. When the skin care device is plugged in there is a cycle that starts cleansing the actual brush keeping bacteria and microrganisms that could grow at bay.

Sonulase in UV Cleanlight Mode

Sonulase in UV Cleanlight Mode

Now that I’ve explained Mode One let me give you my impressions. I like that there are two cleansing speeds and I advise you to start out with the Low speed. The first time I used the brush I was a little dismayed at the lack of softness. But I liked the way it cleansed, especially around my nose which is the area that gives me the most grief. The more I used the Sonulase, the softer my brush started to feel. While it still isn’t what I call a soft brush, it’s soft enough yet firm enough to really cleanse my skin.

I wet the brush, apply my cleanser to the brush head, put it up to my face and press Cleanse. I like turning on the red light button rather than using it on its own. When done I’ll use a wet cloth to remove cleansing residue. Sometimes I’ll precleanse with an oil or cleansing balm, but if I don’t have a lot of makeup on I just use the Sonulase for all my cleansing needs. The brush removes with a firm twist so that I can wash it separately if it has makeup stains on it.

Sonulase gets an A from me especially once you learn about the Red Light Therapy.

LISA explains the Red Light Therapy

This Red Light Therapy isn’t new…it was actually developed by NASA about 40 years ago to treat the damaged skin of astronauts in space! What is new is the ability to have this ‘space age’ treatment in your home instead of having to go to a dermatologist or medical spa.

Sonaluse Red Light Therapy

Sonulase Red Light Therapy

The Red Light is all about collagen. You know, the fibrous tissue that keeps skin plump and young-looking. Your body actually stops creating collagen at around age 25 – after that, it’s all downhill in the collagen department. Less collagen means deeper wrinkles. The quickest way to recreate the youthful, collagen-happy look is with injectable fillers like Restalyn. However, at $450 or so a syringe it gets very expensive, especially since the filler is absorbed by your body and you need new injections at least once a year, perhaps even twice a year.

Space age stuff - Red Light at 660 nanometers

Space age stuff – Red Light at 660 nanometers

Red Light Therapy, a deeply penetrating LED light which is FDA-approved at 660 nanometers, actually stimulates natural collagen growth, so while the Sonulase is spendy, it’s a one time investment that is less than one syringe of an injectable filler.

Using the Red Light Therapy is as easy as cleaning your face with the cleansing brush. It doesn’t hurt or really feel like anything other than a tiny bit warmer than it does while cleansing, and it only takes a few moments twice a week. You can use the Red Light with or without the brush – I prefer using the brush while I concentrate on my more wrinkled areas. In the 8 week study that Sonulase did, 86% of customers reported an improvement in fine lines and wrinkles. Those are great results. I think the Sonulase is a terrific multitasking, intelligent brush that is well worth the investment. I have had great results so far and I am definitely keeping up my Sonulase routine for good.

FOREO LUNA ™ for Women #FOREO #LUNAbyFOREO

*This is a sponsored post with affiliate links, all opinions mine

FOREO : LUNA ™ for Women

FOREO : LUNA ™ for Women

In the world of facial cleansing devices, one stands out from the crowd – the FOREO LUNA ™  for Women ($199).

The typical skin care brush is battery operated with a cleansing brush that eventually wears out and needs replacing.  I have owned my FOREO LUNA™ for four years now, and it not only doesn’t show any signs of wear, I’ve only had to charge it one time — and that’s with using it almost every single day.  This unique little pink machine is truly beyond impressive.

FOREO : LUNA ™ for Women

FOREO : LUNA ™ for Women

The FOREO LUNA™ is not just a facial cleansing brush:

  • Organic design – 100% waterproof, fully rechargeable for 450 uses at a time, and it looks beautiful as well! Transdermal sonic pulsations, rather than standard oscillation, gently stimulate blood flow beneath the skin’s surface, cleansing from the inside out and smoothing away the signs of aging in a similar way to the Botox® effect.
  • Nonabrasive brush surfaces made from soft, smooth silicone – the first of their kind – making it ultra-gentle and actually pleasant to use on the skin.
  • So effective, you notice a visible difference in skin tone after just 3 days, and your face will feel softer and invigorated after just one use.
FOREO : LUNA ™ for Women

FOREO : LUNA ™ for Women

The pink version, which is the one I have, is for sensitive/normal skin. There are two other options available – the white version is for ultra-sensitive skin and the blue version is for combination skin.  There is also a LUNA™ for Men made for men’s skin, and it comes in black, a more manly color.

FOREO : LUNA ™ for Women

FOREO : LUNA ™ for Women

The LUNA™ is a silicone facial cleanser with small nubs that vibrate.  The transdermal sonic pulsations bring dirt and grime up and out of pores, which not only cleanses skin but also perfectly primes it for your skin care products.  Because skin is cleansed and exfoliated, it helps your serums and moisturizers absorb and increased their efficacy.

While it isn’t absolutely necessary, I like to pre-cleanse first with a makeup remover.  I find that with the surface dirt gone, the LUNA™ can cleanse even more deeply.  The intensity of the pulsations is controlled via the plus and minus buttons that are right next to the on/off button.

You don’t have to press hard at all for this gem to work.  Light pressure is all that’s needed, and the rounded shape makes it easy to get into awkward areas like around the nose and under the eyes.  I first get my face wet, then apply cleanser, then use the LUNA™ in a circular motion. It really only takes about two minutes to cleanse your whole face.  Once I rinse and dry my face, I use the other side of the LUNA™  for a quick anti-aging massage.

FOREO : LUNA ™ for Women

FOREO : LUNA ™ for Women

The center button activates the lower-frequency Anti-Aging Mode, which you then press on five different points for 12 seconds each – between eyebrows, right temple, right nasolabial fold, left nasolabial fold, then the left temple. This light massage relaxes those tension points and help prevent lines and wrinkles. Plus, it increases the blood circulation to those areas which increases collagen and elastin production. All that equals firmer skin with better elasticity.  Besides, it’s just a great way to relax and pamper yourself.  I use it right after cleansing, I just flip the LUNA™  around, press the center button, and enjoy the next minute. It feels great and after my skin definitely glows.  You can also use it with your favorite skin care creams or serums.

FOREO says that once charged, the LUNA™ lasts for at least 450 uses.  I say it last for many more than that, and it is perfect for travel since you don’t need the charger cord.  It also comes with a handy silky travel pouch and it’s totally waterproof so you can use it in the shower without worry.

If you aren’t sold yet, consider this – the initial purchase is the total investment.  There are no replacement brushes to buy, and the FOREO LUNA™ is very hygienic.  I can personally vouch for the longevity of the brush.  Like I said, four years of constant use and while my LUNA™ looks well loved, the little nubs haven’t worn away at all.

If you haven’t invested in a LUNA™ for Women Skincare Brush yet, this is a perfect time!  Just use the promo code BYBLOG for 10% off your purchase.  Your skin will love you for it.  – Lisa

JeNu Ultrasonic Infuser is going to be your #1 product of the year

You can now change the effectiveness of the skincare you use in just 1 minute. How is that possible? Learn about the JeNu Ultrasonic Infuser and you’ll be as sold on this as I am.

JeNu Infuser

JeNu Ultrasonic Infuser

When I was offered the JeNu Ultrasonic Infuser to test out I was a happy daughter. My dad was a gadget man and he passed that down to his kids. We are all in love with gadgets but it’s not unusual for that love to wear off. I seriously doubt my love the the JeNu Infuser will ever wear out. This is one amazing “gadget” and ranks up there with my iPhone and iPad as things I can’t be without.

JeNu Ultrasound Wand

JeNu Ultrasound Wand

With the JeNu Ultrasound Infuser you use your own skincare since JeNu’s goal is to intensify the absorption of the products you use. It’s been proven to increase the absorption by 3X.

Here’s what you’ll receive: the JeNu Ultrasound Wand, the charger, and a tube of the MicroSphere Conducting Gel which allows the JeNu Infuser to be used with any skin care product. A charge will last you for 30 applications.

Now let’s get to work. After cleansing apply your skincare of choice whether it’s a serum, an antioxidant gel, a moisturizer or even an eye cream. My personal preference is a serum since I think serums have the most effective anti-aging ingredients. Apply the JeNu MicroSphere Conducting Gel in the middle of the Infuser but don’t use too much. Then press the power button and move over the areas you want to treat in a circular motion. It’s that easy. The gel will evaporate and shouldn’t leave your skin feeling sticky. You can do more minutes elsewhere on your face since the Infuser can be used anywhere – face, neck, eyes and even lips. Finish up with any other products you want and you’ll be thrilled.

I’m still using the system only in the evenings since that’s when I do my major skincare routine. I’m usually rushing in the morning and I love luxuriating in the feel of the JeNu Ultrasound Infuser and knowing that I’m working to look my best. I can’t turn back the sands of time but I can sure work at making them take back some of those lines that I hate.

The JeNu Infuser is not inexpensive but it’s worth every penny and right now it’s on special for 25% off.  Compared to some other products on the market the price of this isn’t that bad. What matters most though is what you are doing for your skin by helping the skincare products you chose to work their hardest when absorbed into the skin.

The more I use this, the more I want to continue. I’m using it on my entire face, my neck and under my eyes. That’s 3 minutes to get 3X better results from the skincare I’m using. My next step is to use the JeNu Active-Youth Lip Serum that I just ordered. I can’t wait to start that and report back to you.

JeNu Ultrasound Infuser, the perfect gift for your mom (or yourself)

I keep mine in a bright pink cosmetic bag and seeing it on my vanity makes me the happiest woman around. Make yourself happy or give it for a gift to your mom and make her ecstatic. Once you see your results, you’ll be agreeing with Vogue magazine that this is the one of the Top 10 Game Changing Products to Own in 2015.

The Skin Perfecter: three minutes, three times a week for perfect skin

Every so often, a cosmetic device comes along that really and truly changes my life. The Beauty Blender changed the way I wear my foundation.

beauty blenderThe Verge Bubble and Ribbon Wands changed the way I wear my hair.

Verge Bubble Wand

And now the Skin Perfecter, sent to us to test by Le Mieux, has changed the way I cleanse my face.

Le Mieux Skin Perfecter

The Skin Perfecter ($225) is a facial wand that cleanses the face, exfoliates dead skin cells, extracts clogged pores, and infuses the skin with serums and creams. Plus, it also give a great facial massage! This little wand is a total powerhouse that delivers real results.  It is being launched on July 22nd on QVC, so take a look and decide if you want to budget for it – it really is worth the investment.

The Skin Perfecter is unlike any cleansing device I have ever used. It is described as, ““An ultrasonic, handheld device that goes beyond ordinary cleansing by deeply flushing pores of excess oil, makeup residue, and cellular impurities using high frequency vibrations. Deep exfoliation decongests pores to combat acne and blemishes and allows better absorption of products for heightened results.”

The Skin Perfecter

The Skin Perfecter

The Skin Perfecter has a thin blade called a spatula that cleanses, infuses, or massages, depending on how you use it. It is completely different from the other brush-head sonic devices that I’ve used. Three uses a week is all that is needed for major results. Here are the steps:

1.  Dampen face and neck with water.

2.  Turn the Skin Perfecter on and hit the Mode button until the word ‘HI’ is green. With the spatula angled downward, glide it out and up over the face, nose, and neck.

That’s all you need to do to cleanse, exfoliate, and extract. It feels sort of odd…the 28,000 ultrasonic vibrations per second create a definite sensation that is difficult to describe. It’s not unpleasant, and it doesn’t hurt in the least…but it feels strange. These vibrations strengthen the skin tissue, and at the same time the spatula actually helps extract dirt, dead skin cells, blackheads and whiteheads. It is really, really cool.

After cleansing and extracting, just flip the spatula over and use the other side – the flat side – to apply serum or skin cream.

1.  Apply serum/cream with fingertips.

2.  Turn the Skin Perfecter on and hit the Mode button 3x until both ‘HI’ and ‘Pulse’ are green. With the spatula flat against the skin, glide the Skin Perfecter out and up over the face, nose, and neck.

This perfectly applies skin care and greatly increases the efficacy of the products. It allows skin care to work at the highest level possible. All those fantastic ingredients can really penetrate perfectly cleansed skin and the ultrasonic vibrations truly infuse skin with all the good stuff.

To relax and help strengthen the skin even more, use the same technique without serum for a facial massage.

easy to operate!

easy to operate!

There is a GREAT video that shows exactly how to use the Skin Perfecter right HERE.

The Skin Perfecter really couldn’t be easier to use. It’s the perfect size and design to fit right into your hand. It really only takes a few minutes to treat your entire face and neck. And it has a rechargeable battery plus a low battery signal.

The Skin Perfecter delivers big results. Here are some findings from a clinical study:

1.     In a clinical study 100% of participants saw an improvement in skin exfoliation in two weeks.

2.     In a clinical study 85% of participants saw an improvement in overall skin appearance in two weeks.

3.     In a clinical study 80% of participants saw immediate improvement in brightness in two weeks.

4.     In a clinical study 69% of participants saw immediate improvement in radiance & luminosity in two weeks.

5.     In a clinical study 69% of participants saw immediate radiance and healthier look to their skin due to micro massage that encourages microcirculation

6.     In a clinical study 65% of participants saw an improvement of the appearance of pores in two weeks.

7.     In a clinical study 62% of participants saw immediate improvement in the appearance of skin texture & smoothness in two weeks.

8.     In a clinical study 50% of participants saw an improvement in fine lines & wrinkles in two weeks.

9.     In a clinical study the use of the Skin Perfecter improves absorption of serum compared to using ones hands.

Those are great results…and I would say that my own personal results from two months of use have been even more impressive.

The Skin Perfecter goes on sale on QVC on July 22nd. I hope you will consider buying one of these.  I haven’t been this excited about a skin care tool in a very long time and I just can’t recommend it highly enough. Be sure to check out the video about how to use the Skin Perfecter here:
