InfiniteAloe® Skin Care review and giveaway

infinite aloeNo fancy title this time because InfiniteAloe® Skin Care isn’t a fancy line, it’s just a simply wonderful line of aloe based skincare that you may never want to stop using.

InfiniteAloe® has three formulas of their cream: Original, Fragrance Free and Anti-Aging. We were sent samples of all three to test and some extras to give to our readers in an anniversary giveaway. I’m sure long time readers know that I chose the Fragrance Free InfiniteAloe® to use. That’s how I roll and I’ve rolled into a cream that I love and am using daily.

InfiniteAloe® Advanced Formula fragrance Free

InfiniteAloe® Advanced Formula fragrance Free

InfiniteAloe Skin Care is loaded with good for your skin ingredients like

* Organic Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice which is an oil soluble extract of the Aloe Vera leaves

* Glycerin which acts as an humectant and emollient

* anti-oxidants like Rose Hips Fruit Oil, CoEnzyme Q10, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Green Tea Leaf Extract, Hyaluronic Acid

* moisturizing ingredients such as Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Calendula Extract, Grape Seed Oil

* anti-inflammatory ingredients: Fennel Fruit Extract, Comfrey Root Extract

Add these up and you have a cream that is moisturizing, emollient, helps with inflammation, and is loaded with antioxidants. But the star of the show is the Organic Aloe Vera which heals and soothes.

My experience with this has been mostly on my hands and neck. I’m ashamed to admit that I totally forget to moisturize my neck on a regular basis so when this arrived I made a promise to myself to start taking care of that area. I’ve kept to that promise by using this every night after the rest of my skincare is applied. Even on nights I’m exhausted and can’t wait to get into bed, I take the time to apply this to my neck and then to my hands.

The biggest difference and why I love this cream so much is on my hands. I do use hand creams all the time. But I also wash my hands over and over during the day and night. I practically live in my bathroom some days and my hands showed it. They were rough, chapped, and looked dry as the desert. InfiniteAloe has been the first product that did more than moisturize my hands – it healed them too. It’s not just that the weather is changing though because I’ve been using this since late winter through the winds and freezing rain. After all these weeks I only have one small area on my left forefinger that feels rough. As a leftie, that’s understandable.

This is a great all around moisturizer and it’s just as great on my face as on other parts of my body. I’ve used this as a night cream and there’s no greasy feel to it. It absorbs nicely and my skin looks fresh in the a.m.

InfiniteAloe® also has a Gold Anti-Aging formula that is new and improved and is especially great for facial use. It’s great for under eye use as well as a moisturizer and can be used in the same way that the original creams are used.

I’m super excited that they have sent product for a giveaway. I think this is top-notch and something I want to have on hand. But I’m being generous and not saving it all for myself even though I want to. We will have 3 winners. The first place winner is US or Canada, but the other two prizes will also be international.

Revitalize your skin with Renu28 and enter our giveaway

Renu 28 Skin Revitalizing Gel

Renu 28 Skin Revitalizing Gel

Did you know that your skin recycles every 28 days? Your body sheds cells through a natural renewal process allowing healthy skin cells to emerge. It works to eliminate and shed any toxins and dead cells that are built up over time. As we age though this process takes longer so instead of 28 days it will become 32 days and a few years later it will take 36 days and then 40 days. We all know that our body and therefore skin doesn’t stay stagnate but did we realize how much longer it takes to refresh as we age?

The challenge of having healthy skin that we are proud of means we need to work on renewal. Renu 28 by Asea was sent so that I could try to see how it would affect my aging skin. I’ll give you a hint – it helps!

Renu 28 Skin Revitalizing Gel

Renu 28 Skin Revitalizing Gel

Renu 28 Skin Revitalizing Gel is a clear non-fragranced gel to be used once or twice a day. I use it each morning and it’s so refreshing. You need to shake it well before using, then squeeze out a small amount. It’s a clear gel that isn’t sticky but it is a little drying. The ingredients in Renu 28 are simple yet effective: Aqua/Water/Eu, Sodium Magnesium Silicate, Disodium Phosphate, Sodium Chloride. There are no preservatives and it’s hypoallergenic and noncomedogenic.

Renu 28

Renu 28

You want to use this for 28 days to see the change in your skin which I’ve done. After seeing the way my skin responded to this gel I’ve also started using it on my neck which I tend to neglect. Upon application you’ll feel this refreshing coolness from the gel. I let it set for just a minute and then continue with my other skincare for the day. Most days I apply Renu 28, then a serum and last a moisturizer with SPF, some days I’ll just use Renu 28 and go straight to the moisturizer. renu 28 box back

This is a new type of product for me and I can’t say I understand all the science behind it, but I’ve seen what the science has done for me.  Here’s what it’s been proven to do according to Asea’s website:

Proven Science, Proven Results

RENU 28 has received 5-star accreditation—the highest possible—by leading European dermatological research institute, Dermatest. In a 28-day study, RENU 28 was shown to:

Dermatest Clinically Tested

  • Reduce eye wrinkle depth by 21%
  • Improve wrinkles overall by 23%
  • Improve facial skin texture by 22%
  • Increase skin’s smoothness by 23
  • Increase skin’s elasticity by 20%
  • Increase skin’s moisture by 11%

A tube of this is $40 and will last you for months. You use such a small amount each day.

Renu 28 Skin Retexturizing Gel is quite unique. Even with as many brands of skincare that I’m able to try, this is a new type of product for me. The science behind this isn’t available in any other product on the market. After seeing these before and after pictures on Pinterest I’m ready to try this in more places than I had been. It’s been toning and tightening my facial skin and now I want more. Don’t you? — Marcia

GIVEAWAY

Thanks to Renu 28 we are able to offer one tube of Skin Revitalizing Gel to a Beauty Info Zone subscriber. This is open for US only and will be sent by the company. You must be 18+ to enter. If the comments close towards the end of the giveaway you can email me at beautyinfozone@gmail.com with your comment, click “I commented” and continue on with any other options to get more entries. Open through 4/11/15 at 11:59 p.m.

Getting in a new year groove with the January Glossybox

Glossybox 2015 January 3Better late than never!  The Glossybox for January 2015 is a great collection of full size and travel size skin care and cosmetics. It actually isn’t too late, you can still order the January box, thank goodness. A three-month subscription is $60, and the January Glossybox alone has over $70 worth of products. Here is what was in the box they sent to us:

Glossybox 2015 January

There are two sample items. The Vichy Purete Thermale 3-in-1 One Step Cleanser is a deluxe size, 1 oz.  This was actually voted the best cleanser in Allure’s Best of Beauty, so I am anxious to try it out.  No question this is going in my travel bag, stat!  There is also a small sample size of Skin & Co Roma Truffle Therapy Serum.  The sample is 0.17 oz, which is a wonderful way to try out this $80 serum.  I tried it last night and this morning, hoping I wouldn’t like it because I have so many serums right now…but it felt pretty awesome. Rats.

Glossybox 2015 January 4

The Kueshi Pure & Clean Revitalizing Face Toner is full size and this is a new line for me. Kueshi is a Spanish line, and this toner gets great reviews. The toner has aloe in it, so it is very gentle and healing.

Glossybox 2015 January 2

Another new line for me is Lollipops. The Eye Pencil in Goodbye Moon is just darling, love the packaging! This is a retractable eyeliner that goes on smooth and has great lasting power. Goodbye Moon is a black with a slight metallic finish. Definitely a keeper!

Glossybox 2015 January 5

The star of the January 2015 Glossybox is the Teez Trendy Cosmetics Beautiful Flat Stiff Brush. This is a wonderful eyeshadow brush! I love it for packing on color, and it also blends and smudges beautifully. Just check out that super cute handle.  Yes, it’s trendy, but it’s also just a great brush that I am happy to have in my collection.

I love Glossybox because it really is a tremendous value, plus I love the introduction to new and niche lines.  If you haven’t subscribed yet, the January Glossybox is a great way to begin.

Use the coupon code AIMODSTER15 for a Ardency Inn Modster Eyeliner Travel Size Duo with a monthly subscription to GlossyBox.  – Lisa

Don’t Call Me Ma’am but do enter this skincare giveaway

Don't Call Me Ma'am products

Don’t Call Me Ma’am products

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

Don't Call Me Ma'am skincare trio

Don’t Call Me Ma’am skincare trio

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

Don't Call Me Ma'am sayings

Don’t Call Me Ma’am sayings

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

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

Don't Call Me Ma'am WASH IT AWAY

Don’t Call Me Ma’am WASH IT AWAY

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

Don't Call Me Ma'am IN BALANCE EVERYDAY TONER

Don’t Call Me Ma’am IN BALANCE EVERYDAY TONER

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

Don't Call Me Ma'am FACE LOVE

Don’t Call Me Ma’am FACE LOVE

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

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

RoC Retinol Correxion

RoC Retinol Correxion

As Ambassadors for RoC skincare we are always excited to use their products. RoC recently sent three of their best sellers and we are sharing with one of our wonderful readers with a giveaway. #gotitfree

RoC RETINOL CORREXION DEEP WRINKLE SERUM is the backbone of this trio. It can be used once or twice a day to make your skin feel ultra smooth. It contains Vitamin E and retinol to help you with your deepest wrinkles and make them appear lessened. Like a lot of RoC products this does have a fragrance but one that is worthwhile when considering the benefits.

Glossybox has a very special edition from La Prairie

la prairie limited edition Glossybox

If you are a fan of la prairie skincare or you are longing for the line but don’t have the money for it, then you have a special opportunity from Glossybox for a box that is filled with only La Prairie skincare. This is not part of the regular subscription. It’s a limited edition box that Glossybox and la prairie put together for you. You don’t have to be a subscriber to Glossybox to order this amazing edition but you should hurry because it’s going to sell out quickly. Glossybox sent this so that I could share it with Beauty Info Zone readers.

One of the reasons it’s going to be the hottest item around (or maybe I should say coldest once you see what’s in it) is that there are two skincare items that aren’t even released yet. When you buy this box you’ll be among the first to try out their latest and greatest before it’s available in stores.

In the box you’ll receive 5 deluxe size samples of products. These are not packets, they are all nicely sized to give you weeks of use.

CELLULAR REFINING LOTION:

Not everyone uses a toner but it really can be an essential tool since it completes your cleansing process and gets your skin ready for the rest of your regimen. The size in the box is 2 fl oz.  The cellular lotion softens the skin and helps clean your pores at the same time.

ESSENCE OF SKIN CAVIAR EYE COMPLEX:

I am of the firm belief that you should be using eye creams day and night. This one is a lightweight gel that gives a lift to your undereye area. This 0.17 fl oz size is best used in the morning since it soothes away signs of stress and fatigue while instantly firming and nourishing that area. You only need a tiny amount to achieve the effect you want.

This is the product that made my heart skip a beat. Dry oils are the hottest commodity in skincare now. If you’d normally shy away from a product for your face with the word oil in it, now’s the time to try this out. It’s sheer and weightless so you’ll never feel like you have an oil on your face. The Dry Oil seals in the moisture within your skin so that you don’t dry out. You don’t have to worry about spilling it since you just press down on the top and the right amount of oil will appear. Your heart will skip a beat once you try this too.

You’ll find your skin becomes better hydrated using the crystal cream. The combination of the Dry Oil and Crystal Cream is perfect for those with skin on the dry side and for the harsh winter we are all having.

Now that you’ve seen the treasures in this Limited Edition Glossybox, it’s time to quickly order it. This goes up for sale on January 27th though they have teased us and given subscribers the opportunity to do a pre-sale. You don’t have to be a Glossybox subscriber to purchase this box. You do have to want some of the finest skincare at a tiny fraction of the cost. Glossybox has come up with a winner that should please all skincare lovers. Why not you too? — Marcia
