Jane Iredale Skincare minis

Jane Iredale Skincare minis

With Spring Break and the spring holidays looking at us we need to think about how we can pack in the most efficient way. It’s not like summer time where you might be gone for a few weeks. This time of year you’re lucky to get away for 5-6 days but usually it’s a little less. Therefore you don’t necessarily want to shlep it all with you but you don’t want to give up quality products. And who’s coming to the rescue? Why Jane Iredale of course. Wait – did we know before that Jane Iredale had minis? I didn’t until they were sent my way and I’m happy to have them in my arsenal.

JANE IREDALE BEAUTYPREP SKINCARE MINIS

BeautyPrep Skincare Minis

Jane Iredale sells mini versions of their BeautyPrep skincare. These are great for your travels, your gym bag, and for trying the brand out.

BeautyPrep Face Cleanser ($8.50) is an anti-oxidant and vitamin enhanced cleanser that uses cucumber extract in its micellar water formula. It’s a mild yet effective cleanser that doesn’t strip my skin at all. Like all of the BeautyPrep skincare items it’s cruelty free, vegan, and gluten free.

Jane Iredale BeautyPrep Cleanser and Toner

Follow the cleanser with their Face Toner ($10). This has an unusual fragrance since it’s been infused with Herbasome, a fruit extract water that contains organic Lemon Grass, Apple, Pear, Carrot and Coconut Water to restore the surface of the skin and balance pH. It refines pores and moisturizes to help makeup go on smoother and last longer.

Jane Iredale BeautyPrep Face Moisturizer

Jane Iredale BeautyPrep Face Moisturizer

My favorite product of the three is the BeautyPrep Face Moisturizer ($18). It has a light citrus fragrance from lemongrass extract. It contains 4 organic Rose Stem Cell Extracts to help with brightening and hydration. It’s very soothing and good for dehydrated skin. The full size has an airless pump system so you won’t be double dipping.

Jane Iredale Hydrating Mists

Jane Iredale Hydrating Mists

Other minis are their famous Hydration Mists. It’s the best way to try these out to see if they are great for your skin. These sprays have many uses

  • Sets minerals for a long lasting, smooth finish.
  • A must for post-laser.
  • Use to wet brushes and turn powder eye shadows into eyeliner.

 

Jane Iredale D2O Hydration Spray

Jane Iredale D2O Hydration Spray

D2O Hydration Spray: “D2O™ is based on Ylang Ylang that helps to hydrate, calm and protect the skin.” This one is great for hydrating, calming and protecting the skin. Ylang Ylang Flower Extract and Essential Oil balances oil in the skin. Chamomile Flower Extract calms and soothes while it helps alleviate dryness, itching and sensitivity.

Balance Hydrating Spray: This is my pick of the three I have. “Balance is formulated with Orange Essential Oil, Orange Peel Extract, Grapefruit Peel Extract and Algae Extract to help balance skin’s oil.” I’m a big fan of citrus so this one is the most soothing to me. I used to be the queen of hot flashes and this spray was a life saver for me to get through those sessions. Balance Hydrating Spray is especially good for balancing oil.

Jane Iredale Pommisst Hydrating Spray

Jane Iredale Pommisst Hydrating Spray

Pommisst Hydrating Spray: This is the only one that I can no longer find a mini of though it was available in December. Pommisst is recommended for all skin types. It contains Pomegranate Extract, a powerful antioxidant and UV protector that also hydrates and helps minimize UV damage. Other important ingredients are White Tea Leaf Extract and Rosemary Leaf Extract.

All three of these Hydration Sprays are available in full size as well as refills for them. Hydration Sprays have been awarded ECOCERT’s Natural and Organic certification. ECOCERT strives to promote the use of ingredients derived from renewable resources and from organic farming.

Have you tried Jane Iredale skincare? If you like organic, vegan, gluten-free, and cruelty-free products then you don’t want to miss out. I’m all set for travel between these goodies and the GLOW for a cause body butters. What about you?  —  Marcia

GLOW For A Cause – a company like no other

glow for a casue logoGLOW for a cause meets so many of my needs and I’m confident will meet many of yours too. The company itself strove to create the purest and highest quality products possible. The creator, Johanna Querry Smith, is an artist, teacher and skincare “productista” who created this brand as a passion project. But it’s more than a passion for her, it’s a way to pamper yourself while you are giving back. 5% of all sales goes to their non-profit partner organizations.

GLOW for a cause

GLOW for a cause

I was sent their TRY IT ALL in a BAG set that is an exciting way to discover some of their line. It contains 14 nicely sized sample products inside a wonderful cosmetic bag created by BROMS.the.poet. For me this was an excellent way to try their products, mostly because almost everything is fragranced.

GLOW for a cause CARRY IT ALL BAG (bag)

GLOW for a cause CARRY IT ALL BAG (bag)

The CARRY IT ALL BAG ($16) can be bought separately as can the TRY IT ALL SAMPLES ($12) or you can buy the set TRY IT ALL in a BAG ($24).

GLOW for a cause BODY BUTTERS

GLOW for a cause BODY BUTTERS

There are 10 Body Butters that GLOW for a cause manufacturers and each can be bought separately but for me the delight is in having the opportunity to sniff out all of these to see what I like best. In alphabetical order here they are:

  1. CALM:  fresh lavender and warm vanilla, a sultry scent
  2. DREAM:  a bouquet of flowers with a warm woody base, it’s a soft floral scent
  3. EMBRACE:  blend of white amber, ginger, brown sugar and coconut with a subtle note of rich vanilla and musk, this is one of my personal favorites even though I wasn’t sure about the musk at first
  4. INNOCENCE:  delicate sweetness of berries and flowers with a twist of almond, a little bit of every good scent that Glow says is like Paris in the spring
  5. INSPIRE:   vibrant blend of florals and a dash of sunny citrus, I love this because of the natural citrus that comes through
  6. NATURAL:  unscented so of course this is the one I tried first to check out the richness and luxurious feel of these body butters
  7. REFRESH:  eucalyptus, spearmint and bergamot mix, I love the spearmint in this, it’s not a typical fragrance in bath/body products
  8. VIBE: “the vibrant mix of red berries, honey and bergamot are rounded out by a blend of vanilla, clove, sandalwood and the luscious twist of citrus zests.”, this is such a delightful scent that isn’t typical at all, highly recommended
  9. WANDER:  Bergamot and jasmine are grounded by spicy florals and an earthy undertone of sandalwood, incense and vanilla. Floral and spice and sandalwood stand out most to me.
  10. WISH:  light florals, white tea, and bergamot grounded by light musks; delightfully sweet and not overwhelming

    GLOW for a cause BODY BUTTER

    GLOW for a cause BODY BUTTER

These body butters are very rich without being sticky. They absorb nicely and last a good amount of time. Most of these would take the place of wearing fragrance in my opinion. They are Paraben Free, Phthalate Free, Cruelty Free, and made in the USA.

GLOW for a cause skincare

GLOW for a cause skincare

There are two Facial Creams included in the samples: Calendula & Cream and Vanilla & Aloe. Vanilla & Cream is labeled Facial Moisturizing Cream. It’s made with 100% pure vanilla essential oil and aloe vera extract and has a very strong vanilla fragrance. It’s gluten free as well as paraben free plus there are no synthetic fragrances. The ingredients are amazing and you can tell from them what purity you are using.

INGREDIENTS

Water (Aqua), Cetearyl Alcohol (and) Ceteareth – 20, Glycerin, Shea Butter (Butyrospermum Parkii), Glyceryl Monostearate, Helianthus Annus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Palm Oil, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Cera Alba, Dimethicone, Grapefruit Pink Essential Oil, Phenoxyethanol, Carbomer, Natural Vitamin E, Vanilla Flavor, Sodium Citrate, Vanilla Planifolia Fruit Extract, Green Tea Extract, Chamomile Extract, Silk Powder, Honey Powder, Banana Fruit Extract, Papaya Fruit Extract, Aloe Vera Powder, Apricot Fruit Extract

Calendula & Cream is the Facial Nourishing Cream and is created with lightly scented with 100% pure essential oils of lemon, bergamot and tangerine. It soothes damaged skin without leaving a greasy feeling. As a fan of citrus aromas this is my favorite of the two.

GLOW for a cause Facial Nourishing Cream and Facial Moisturizing Cream

GLOW for a cause Facial Nourishing Cream and Facial Moisturizing Cream

In addition to the moisturizers there’s a scrub and facial mask. FACIAL CLAY SCRUB in Ylang Ylang and Lime is lightly fragranced with 100% pure ylang ylang essential oil and the crisp notes of lime.  It contains Australian clay and apricot exfoliants that don’t hurt sensitive skin. I find it washes off easily with a wash cloth.

INGREDIENTS

Aqua, Kaolin, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Cetearyl Alcohol (and) Sodium Cetearyl Sulfate, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Shell, Sodium Lactate, Phenoxyethanol and Ethylhexylglycerin, Organic Ylang Ylang Oil, Litsea Cubeba Essential Oil, Lime Essential Oil, Mandarin Essential Oil, Natural Vitamin E, Honey Powder, Aloe Vera Powder, Chamomile Extract

GLOW for a cause Facial Clay Scrub and Facial Clay Mask

GLOW for a cause Facial Clay Scrub and Facial Clay Mask

FACIAL CLAY MASK in Lime & Lavender is “Formulated with Australian and Rhassoul clays, our mask helps to lift impurities and revitalize skin. It is enhanced with evening primrose oil and carrot oil, reputed to nourish the skin and fight the effects of aging, and is infused with the calming aroma of lavender and lime.” I personally find the fragrance to be strong at first but then becomes easier for me to tolerate.

GLOW for a cause TRY IT ALL

GLOW for a cause TRY IT ALL

GLOW FOR A CAUSE has introduced me to a world of fragrances and products I wasn’t aware of. I love being able to try these samples for a reasonable price and I love having samples that are the perfect size for travel. The companies that they partner with are the benefits of their largesse. Specifically if you purchase the Try It All In A Bag you’ll help out Cowgirls vs Cancer, Boston’s Firefigter’s Burn Foundation, The Red Sox Foundation, MaxFun Animal Adoption Center, The Gathering Place, and Berni’s Journey.

For a unique experience and a way to help others try GLOW for a cause. —  Marcia

Get great skin with Skindinavia Post-Makeup Recovery Spray

Skindinavia Post Makeup Recovery Spray 3When I first opened the package from Skindinavia, I was all excited — I thought it was the Skindinavia Makeup Primer Spray, one of my favorite products of all time. Then I realized this was something different. The Skindinavia Post-Makeup Recovery Spray (4 oz. $26; 8 oz. $36) is a spray, but one used AFTER removing makeup. Thank goodness I looked a little more closely at the bottle because this is an all together completely different product!

The premise behind the Skindinavia Post-Makeup Recovery Spray is that makeup can clog pores and deplete skin of minerals. Of course, we typically wash off our makeup at night – if we are being responsible – but cleansing can dry out skin and actually deplete it of the good stuff that keeps skin looking plumped and fresh.Skindinavia Post Makeup Recovery Spray 2This is where the Skindinavia Post-Makeup Recovery Spray comes in. An  after cleansing spray rebalances skin’s natural pH levels. The ingredients also include zinc, which keep skin clear of blemishes. Organic willow bark is a skin soother that prevents bacteria from entering pores, which ultimately means smooth, blemish-free skin.

Skindinavia Post Makeup Recovery SpraySince I have been using this, I haven’t experienced any break outs. I don’t find it to be much help as a makeup refresher during the day, but it is a very nice boost when I’m not wearing any cosmetics. Better skin means better makeup, so I think this is a very interesting product that could be a welcome addition to your skin care arsenal.  – Lisa

Valentina’s Naturals facial oils have changed my skincare routine in a wondrous way

Valentina's Naturals Ageproof Facial Oil and Perfect Cleansing Oil

Valentina’s Naturals Ageproof Facial Oil and Perfect Cleansing Oil

Once upon a time in the dark ages of my life the idea of using an oil on my face would have had me running and screaming. It just wasn’t heard of to do that. My skin has gone through all the stages since my youth. I’ve been extremely oily, I’ve had combo skin, I went through adult acne, back to combo, and now I’m settling into dry skin. While I’m not ultra dry I definitely notice a difference. I’m happy to report that I lived through that very oily stage and now I realize that it was a blessing in disguise since it kept wrinkles at bay as I grew older.

If I hadn’t caved and starting using facial oils I don’t think that my skin would be in as good shape as it is now. Therefore when Valentina’s Naturals approached me about trying some of their facial oils I was happy to agree.

Valentina's Naturals Perfect Cleansing Oil and Ageproof Facial Oil

Valentina’s Naturals Perfect Cleansing Oil and Ageproof Facial Oil

There are 4 steps in Valentina’s Naturals skincare regimen: Step 1 is to cleanse, Step 2 is toner, Step 3 is the treatment serum, while Step 4 is moisture. There are several varieties in steps 2 and 4 so that all skin can find the perfect perfects.

Valentina's Naturals Perfect Cleansing Oil

Valentina’s Naturals Perfect Cleansing Oil

Step 1 is cleansing which is in the form of Valentina’s Naturals Perfect Cleansing Oil ($18). For all skin types, this cleanser is 100% natural with 4 oils that make up its composition, all of which are organic. It has the most delectable sweet orange fragrance that makes me eager to wash.

Valentina's Naturals Perfect Cleansing Oil

Valentina’s Naturals Perfect Cleansing Oil

Valentina's Naturals Perfect Cleansing Oil

Valentina’s Naturals Perfect Cleansing Oil

It’s so easy to use and leaves your skin feeling soft and moisturized. It’s almost a shame to move on from this but it’s only step 1. The directions tell us to massage a pumpful onto your face and neck in gentle circles. Towel it off with a warm washcloth. No need to use another cleanser for double cleansing unless you’ve worn very heavy face makeup. I find that between the Perfect Cleansing Oil and a terry washcloth my face is perfectly cleansed.

Next step is to tone and use a serum. I’m in the process of testing a skincare line that has asked me not to use any other products on my skin. As much as I’m seeing a difference with that line what I missed was a richer moisturizer so when I added Valentina’s Naturals Ageproof Facial Oil ($24) my skin cheered me on.

Valentina's Naturals Ageproof Facial Oil

Valentina’s Naturals Ageproof Facial Oil

Valentina’s Naturals Ageproof Facial Oil is the perfect moisturizer to finish off your skincare regimen especially at night. This is their oil for normal or mature skin. I like to think I’m normal but for sure I know that I have mature skin. But if this doesn’t describe your skin you could pick Balancing Facial Oil for Oily or Combination skin or choose Pure Comfort Facial Oil for Dry or Sensitive Skin. Now it may seem counterproductive to put an oil on oily skin but it actually helps open clogged pores if it has the right oil that is.

Valentina's Naturals Perfect Cleansing Oil

Valentina’s Naturals Perfect Cleansing Oil

Valentina’s Naturals Ageproof Facial Oil also contains wonderful oils that are good for your skin. The two standouts are Primrose Oil and Jojoba Oil. The reason behind using Primrose Oil is that it’s rich in skin-nourishing Gamma Linoleum Acid, which is often depleted in our skin as we age. Even though I “think” I know my ingredients, I learned this from Valentina’s Naturals: “Jojoba Oil is actually not an oil at all but a natural liquid plant wax which is remarkable for its ability to mimic healthy skin sebum.” I’ve used many jojoba oil products but never saw the explanation put this way.

Valentina's Naturals Perfect Cleansing Oil

Valentina’s Naturals Perfect Cleansing Oil

Since using Valentina’s Naturals Perfect Cleansing Oil in particular as well as the Perfect Cleansing Oil my skin is fighting the ravages of what winter was doing to my skin. I’m no longer battling dry spots or flakiness. My skin is feeling more refreshed and ready to take on the day. These two reasonably priced facial oils are ones I can wholeheartedly recommend and will purchase them when empty.

Appriya Transformative Skincare introduction with a giveaway

Appriya Transformative Skincare, Mineral products

Appriya Transformative Skincare, Mineral products

We’d like to introduce you to APPRIYA, a skincare brand that Beauty Info Zone was sent to test. The happy news is that the company sent us several of their best products for a giveaway. We love spoiling our readers with giveaways and we love testing and learning about a company as unique as Appriya.

Appriya is different than the other products we use because it’s based on water. Not just any water though but the untouched mineral waters that create the basis of their line.

Appriya water is rich in restorative natural nano like particles. These biodegradable nano like particles dissolve into the skin, enhancing the efficiency of each product’s active ingredients and ensuring a perfect and even application of every cream, serum and tonic.The skin absorbs the minerals from our water to detoxify the complexion, reduce inflammation, boost moisture retention and supplement collagen and elastic fibers for healthier skin. Bursting with the optimal balance of ionic dissolved minerals, Appriya water offers the most hydration and moisture with its neutral pH and biodegradable properties.
 There are 5 products in the Appriya mineral line and all contain silica. Silica has many properties that fortify and nourish our skin, nails, and hair. It invigorates collagen and boosts the elastin that’s deep within our skin.
MARCIA shares Appriya Mineral Tonic, Mineral Complex Serum and Delicate Zone Mineral Serum while LISA shares Appriya Mineral Cleansing Mousse and Comprehensive Mineral Day and Night Cream

Appriya Mineral Tonic and Mineral Serums

APPRIYA MINERAL CLEANSING MOUSSE

Appriya Mineral Cleansing Mousse Appriya Mineral Cleansing Mousse

($59.00)  I absolutely love this cleansing mousse. It has coconut and fruit sugars which help dissolve oil and dirt, along with vitamin E to help protect skin. The mousse is beautiful foamy goodness that works great with my Luna. I have tons of cleansers but I reach for this one all the time. Ingredients include: Coco Glucoside, which is derived from coconut and fruit sugars and provides hydration and helps maintain skin elasticity while controlling oil production. Allantoin, which is derived from the Comfrey Root-this botanical extract is an excellent soothing and healing agent. Vitamin E, which is a nutrient and antioxidant that defends against free radicals and other environmental damaging effects.

APPRIYA MINERAL TONIC

Appriya Mineral Tonic

Appriya Mineral Tonic

The secret to Appriya Mineral Tonic lies in the Appriya water that’s in every Appriya product. The water is pure and untouched but gathers its essence by the way it flows across ancient marble where it becomes enriched with silica and hydrogen peroxide.

The ingredients within are what makes this a unique toner: Cucumber Fruit Extract, Lactic Acid, Mushroom Extract, Niacinamide, Fermented Soy, and Vitamin C. Each has a job but combine to make sure that your skin remains calm and hydrated. The Niacinamide helps with acne even. The formula refines your skin’s texture and adds to the hydration level. I use this mostly at night to make sure that the remainder of my cosmetics are removed leaving my skin more hydrated. There’s a very light fragrance that’s gone quickly.

APPRIYA COMPREHENSIVE MINERAL DAY & NIGHT CREAM

Appriya Comprehensive Mineral Day & Night CreamAppriya Comprehensive Mineral Day & Night Cream

($189.00)  This is pretty spendy, but hey – it’s infused with colloidal gold! This ingredient plus a host of others create a truly elegant formula that does everything good you could wish for in a skin cream: boosts elasticity, fades wrinkles, evens skin tone, soothes skin and plumps it up. Check out all this goodness:  Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), which helps even skin tone, improves skins moisture and reduces the appearance of acne. Shea Butter (Butyrospermum Parki), embodied with Vitamins A and E, moisturizes the skin and reduces inflammation. Glycolic Acid, which treats acne and oiliness, diminishes blackheads, minimizes pores, and reduces fine lines. Hibiscin Seed Extract (Hibiscus Esculentus), which strengthens weak skin, and has a strong immediate tensor effect. Colloidal Gold, which helps firm skin and reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Evening Primrose Seed Extract (Oenothera Biennis), which improves acne, psoriasis, and eczema. Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4, which stimulates collagen and elastin fibroblast to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

I am very impressed with this beautiful moisturizer and I know you will be too!

APPRIYA MINERAL COMPLEX SERUM

Appriya Mineral Complex Serum

Appriya Mineral Complex Serum

While there are two serums from the Mineral line they are used for different purposes. Mineral Complex Serum is a great facial serum that’s especially good for dry skin. The ingredients are extremely hydrating and nurturing. Aloe, Horse Chestnut Extract and Niacinamide are the hydrating ingredients along with Appriya Water. These are native Thai elements that have been recognized to reduce redness, to calm and to soothe. The Niacinamide helps balance the moisture content so you look more radiant.

Appriya Mineral Complex Serum

Appriya Mineral Complex Serum

But there’s more!! Coconut Oil, Lotus Flower Extract and Evening Primrose Seed Extract are all indigenous to Thailand and work together to diminish wrinkles and give you a brighter and more balanced skin tone. It’s very lightweight and doesn’t take long to be absorbed into your skin; as you can see from the ingredients there is a light floral fragrance that is appealing.

APPRIYA DELICATE ZONE MINERAL SERUM

Appriya Delicate Zone Mineral Serum

Appriya Delicate Zone Mineral Serum

Delicate Zone Mineral Serum is almost as nourishing as Mineral Complex Serum but it’s intended for different areas. The work accomplished is the same in both as they help to rejuvenate, pamper and restore radiance. Delicate Zone can be used near your eyes, on your neck and decollete. I’ve used it on my face too actually.

Appriya Delicate Zone Mineral Serum

Appriya Delicate Zone Mineral Serum

As well as the Appriya water it contains Anti-Aging Plant Stem Cells that are derived from Apple Fruit Cell Culture Extract – powerful anti-oxidants that help diminish fine lines and wrinkles. It also contains Squalene that helps fight free radicals and smooth the look of fine lines. The Squalene is plant derived unlike others. Follow the two serums with the Comprehensive Day & Night Cream for maximum benefit.

GIVEAWAY INFORMATION: One US subscriber will win both the Cleansing Mousse and the Day & Night Cream. In addition they will win one of the two serums of their choice. Another subscriber will win the second serum. Because of the weight we have to make this a US only giveaway. To enter you have 2 requirements: subscribe by EMAIL to Beauty Info Zone and comment.

IT Cosmetics January TSV New Year, New Confidence In Your Skin

IT Cosmetics January TSV New Year, New Confidence In Your Skin

Saturday January 14th brings us the first IT Cosmetics Skincare Collection, New Year, New Confidence In Your Skin, and it’s wonderful. Beauty Info Zone was sent this to test and to help you learn all about it. You aren’t going to want to miss this so be sure you tune in to QVC or go on QVC.com to order. A 4 piece skin care collection with two brand new products!

IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Cream
LISA SHARES:

I love the name of this product. Confidence in a Cream™?  Sign me up! This is the very first time IT Cosmetics has offered Confidence in a Cream in a TSV collection. This day and night moisturizer seems to do everything. It moisturizes thirsty skin, giving it a nice glow; it tackles skin texture and leaves it feeling smooth; it evens out skin tone; it reduces the look of pores. Sounds like great skin to me.

IT Cosmetics Confidence in a CreamIT Cosmetics Confidence in a CreamWhat’s inside to help create all of these skin miracles is a little something IT Cosmetics calls their Anti-Aging Armour Regenerative Concentrate.Anti-Aging Armour Regenerative Concentrate, which includes collagen, hyaluronic acid, peptides, ceramides, antioxidants and colloidal oatmeal. I love the texture of this incredible mix of ingredients. It’s thick and fluffy and it feels decadent when applied. It does have a scent that I can’t quite put my finger on…I don’t particularly like it, but it’s light and it dissipates quickly. Does it work? You betcha. IT Cosmetics did a clinical study and check out these results:

  • 100% said skin was soft, smooth & infused with moisture*
  • 97% said skin looked and felt rejuvenated*
  • 94% said skin felt younger and healthier*
  • 81% said pores appeared minimized, and fine lines & wrinkles appeared less noticeable*

*Results observed in a consumer panel survey.

Confidence in a Cream is a terrific moisturizer with an elegant formula that your face and décolleté will love, especially if you tend towards dry skin.IMG_4332Confidence in a Compact™ with SPF 50+

If you are a fan of Confidence in a Cream, you are really going to love the new Confidence in a Compact™ with SPF 50+.  This is a solid serum foundation that provides all the benefits of the Confidence in a Cream Moisturizer with a full coverage foundation. Plus, it has full sun protections with SPF 50+ UVA/UVB physical sunscreen.

  • Fair: porcelain skin; fairest of the fair
  • Light: if you have a bit more warmth to your skin
  • Medium: light to medium skintones
  • Medium Tan: if you have a warm or golden-medium skintone
  • Tan: tan skintones
  • Rich: tan to rich skin with golden tones
  • Deep: rich to deep skin with a warmer tones

Anything that multitasks is a winner and I think a foundation that is also a skin treating serum is a genius idea. Way to go IT Cosmetics!

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Skin Skin-Smoothing Complexion Brush

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Skin Skin-Smoothing Complexion Brush

Now that Lisa has told you about the amazing Confidence in a Compact with SPF 50 you are going to be thrilled with the new brush that will help your skin look even more amazing. The Heavenly Skin Skin-Smoothing Complexion Brush is a breakthrough product. If you’ve had the opportunity to use other Heavenly Skin brushes through other TSV’s you already know how soft and wonderful these brushes are. The brush is custom-cut and applies the serum foundation effortlessly. The way it’s cut helps it hug the contours of your face so that you end up looking like you’ve airbrushed your foundation. While the compact comes with a sponge, you will be in heaven using the brush. This is a new brush that you can’t buy any other way!

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye eye cream

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye eye cream

Bye Bye Under Eye eye cream is so easy for me to write about because I’ve been using it for months. It’s become a staple in my life. I’m someone who uses an eye cream twice a day and love trying new ones. But I also have my favorites that stay with me even after testing is done and IT Cosmetics made the grade with Bye Bye Under Eye eye cream. It’s a very light blue unscented product. It is in a jar which many people will be negative about but not me. I use a small clean spatula to remove the cream so that I’m not interfering with the integrity of the eye cream.

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye eye cream

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye eye cream

Bye Bye Under Eye eye cream is infused with caffeine, vitamin C, collagen and peptides. I couldn’t ask for more. My dark circles couldn’t ask for more nor could my fine lines. This is an eye cream that you want in your life and on your face. This jar will last you a very long time.

Now that you’ve seen this be sure to order A287731 for single delivery of these 4 magical products. It’s a $182 value that QVC will later sell $97 but now you can buy it for $79.96 and free shipping. Don’t be late to this party since it ends when January 14th ends.

Start the year with RoC®Retinol Correxion and a 2017 giveaway

roc-retinol-giveaway

We want to make sure 2017 starts on the right foot and we know that RoC® Retinol Correxion
products will do just that for you. Beauty Info Zone is proud to be part of the RoC® blogger team and use these products as part of our skincare life. RoC® sent us some items for 2017 and is sending these same products to two of our US subscribers. Read on to see what you can win.     #gotitfree

RoC® Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Daily MoisturizerLisa reminds us:  If you love retinol and you have dry skin you will love the RoC® Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Daily Moisturizer ($23). It has Broad Spectrum SPF 30 to protect skin from the harmful rays of the sun, and the packaging is perfect for keeping the ingredients effective.   RoC® Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Daily MoisturizerRetinol is an incredible ingredient for fighting fine lines and wrinkles. RoC says, “Retinol is the #1 dermatologist recommended cosmetic age-fighting ingredient. A derivative of Vitamin A, retinol works to unclog pores, boost collagen to reduce fine lines, and speed cell turnover to even out discolorations and smooth the skin.”RoC® Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Daily MoisturizerRoC® Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Daily Moisturizer

RoC® scientists were the pioneers who developed the correct packaging that is needed to keep retinol stable and effective. Two of my most favorite retinol products are both their day cream and their night cream (Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Night Cream). The Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Daily Moisturizer is perfect for those with normal to dry skin. The cream is smooth and sinks in quickly, leaving a satin finish. This elegant lotion has a terrific texture that rivals day moisturizers that are ten times the cost.

RoC Retinol Correxion Sensitive Eye Cream

Marcia reminds us:  Everyone needs an eye cream. In my opinion it is never to early to start using one therefore RoC® Retinol Correxion Sensitive Eye Cream is easy to recommend to any of our readers.  This non-greasy eye cream works for me day or night. It doesn’t interfere with my makeup especially mascara. It dries down quickly and easily.
