RoC® Multi Correxion 5 in 1 Chest, Neck & Face Cream makes a difference (giveaway alert)

RoC Multi-Correxion 5-in-1 Chest, Neck & Face Cream

RoC Multi-Correxion 5-in-1 Chest, Neck & Face Cream

A new year means a new beginning and that new beginning should start with your neck. Not enough of us are as careful about protecting our neck and chest from the signs of aging and the damage of the sun. Since it’s the start of January it’s the perfect time to make a change. As a RoC® Ambassador I’m lucky enough to be sent their products to test and one that has helped me is the RoC® Multi-Correxion 5-in-1 Chest, Neck & Face Cream.

Even though I’ve never been a sun worshipper that doesn’t mean that my neck is any less susceptible to the problems that it can cause. One of the places that can give away your age once you get into middle age is your neck. By protecting your neck with this RoC® Neck Cream you are giving yourself a chance to save yourself some aging woes.

Why do you want to use RoC® Multi-Correxion 5-in-1 Chest, Neck & Face Cream? Well for one it’s an anti-aging cream that helps hydrate your chest and neck. Even if you have oily or combination skin you’ll find that your neck is drier and needs extra protection.

RoC® Multi-Correxion 5-in-1 Chest, Neck & Face Cream helps to restore elasticity and firmness helping to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

In the winter I believe we aren’t quite as diligent about sunscreen protection if we live in the cold states. It’s easy to just bring the SPF you are using down your neck to finish up what’s on your hand but that’s really not enough. We need to be dedicated to talking care of our neck and chest all year long.

“The cream is specially formulated to moisturize the chest and neck area with exclusive HEXINOL Technology and Vitamin E. Multi-action HEXINOL® Technology was developed to target the visible signs of aging from a different path than other anti-aging ingredients. It can give visible improvement in as little as 4 weeks by restoring firmness, smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improving the look of discoloration and overall radiance of skin, and hydrating dry skin.”

#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

What would summer be without Aveeno?

aveeno summer

Thanks to Aveeno for providing all these products to help my family and me enjoy the summer.

Check my house for sunscreen and you’ll find plenty. Thanks to AVEENO® not only are my husband and I protected but so are my sweet grandchildren. I’d be inside most of the time if not for them, but the sun and fun beckon when you are 2 and 5. Splashpads are the hit of the day, going for a boat ride is the hit of the month, and running through the sprinklers while squirting the dog and grandparents i always the best. That means we all have to be protected and AVEENO® saves the day.

Aveeno sun protection and relief

Aveeno sun protection and relief

AVEENO® Protect + Hydrate is available in different strengths of sun protection (SPF 30 and 50). I have the 30 which is perfect for me since I am comfortable using it on both my face and body.

AVEENO® PROTECT + HYDRATE® Lotion Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 30

AVEENO® PROTECT + HYDRATE® Lotion Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 30

AVEENO® PROTECT + HYDRATE® Lotion Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 30 combines ENVIROGUARD™ Technology and ACTIVE NATURALS® Colloidal Oatmeal to deliver superior broad spectrum UVA/UVB sun protection while hydrating skin to keep it soft, smooth and feeling healthier than before you went in the sun. For use on face and body, this exclusive formula is fast absorbing, oil free, noncomedogenic, and sweat and water-resistant for 80 minutes.

My grandchildren have been brought up right and never fight us when we have to put on sunscreen. I wish I could have said the same for my own kids when growing up. AVEENO® has a large variety of children’s sunscreen under their baby category. Just because it says Baby though doesn’t mean it’s relegated to infants and toddlers. Young children have much more sensitive skin and need the extra protection of products formulated for them. There are 3 AVEENO® baby sunscreens. We have two in our beach bag and one in the car at all times.

AVEENO® Baby Natural Protection Lotion Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 50 contains MINERALGUARD® Technology and 100% naturally sourced sunscreen ingredients, a more natural alternative.

Formulated with ACTIVE NATURALS® Oat Extract and mineral ingredients (Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide), this sunscreen forms a protective barrier on top of the skin that scatters UVA/UVB rays for superior sun protection.

AVEENO® Baby Natural Protection Lotion Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 50

AVEENO® Baby Natural Protection Lotion Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 50

AVEENO® Baby CONTINUOUS PROTECTION Lotion Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 55 is similar but with longer lasting protection. It’s not greasy, is fragrance free and contains skin-soothing ACTIVE NATURALS® Colloidal Oatmeal. After 80 minutes in the sun, don’t forget to reapply.

AVEENO® Baby CONTINUOUS PROTECTION Lotion Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 55

AVEENO® Baby CONTINUOUS PROTECTION Lotion Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 55

The absolute handiest product to have is the AVEENO® Baby Natural Protection Face Stick Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 50. This stick can be a life saver. We often picnic on our deck or at the park and I can run this over their faces with ease. My 2 year old loves doing it herself so even if she uses up more product than I do, that’s okay with me.

AVEENO® Baby Natural Protection Face Stick Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 50

Packing up for summer fun means juice, snacks, a blanket, and sunscreen galore. Make it Aveeno.  — Marcia

Christie Brinkley Recapture Day + IR Defense with SPF 30 = radiant smooth skin

christie brinkley website

The first time I was offered Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare to test I turned it down. I thought it would be just another celebrity branded product that wasn’t unique. I finally caved when I was offered CLOSE UP to test since that felt unusual and something that was out of the norm. Well now I’m hooked and everything that Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare wants me to test will get a big yes.

The latest to make my dream of having skin like Christie is RECAPTURE DAY + IR DEFENSE ANTI-AGING DAY TREATMENT WITH BROAD SPECTRUM SPF 30.

Christie Brinkley Recapture Day + IR Defense w/ SPF30

Christie Brinkley Recapture Day + IR Defense w/ SPF30

I’ll tell you right away that I love this daytime moisturizer. It’s been hard to tear myself away from it to test other brands because I think this is the best I’ve used in a long time. Recapture Day + IR Defense feels silky on my skin, absorbs quickly and protects me from everything. Plus I swear there’s a radiance that wasn’t there prior to using this.

Christie Brinkley Recapture Day + IR Defense

Christie Brinkley Recapture Day + IR Defense

Let’s talk about what’s inside this jar of wonder.

Neodermyl™ which

  • Helps support the skin’s natural energy for a more rejuvenated look.
  • Helps support the skin’s natural production of collagen and elastin.
  • Helps to recharge skin’s beauty.
  • Helps improve skin elasticity and firmness.

Elix-IR™

  • A knotgrass extract capable of helping fight against infrared ray induced sun damage.
  • Increases firmness and reduces the appearance of wrinkles and helps prevent premature skin photo aging

Sytenol® A

  • Made from edible seeds from Indian origin.
  • Has the capacity to improve/reverse the look of the signs of aging skin

K Vita C

  • Made a special form of vitamin C with great antioxidant activity that helps to fight against free radicals that damage the skin.
  • Significantly decreases skin roughness, decrease the look of the total number of creases on the skin, creating smoother and healthier looking skin.

PLUS so much more.

Christie Brinkley Recapture Day + IR Defense

This day cream is made to rejuvenate skin, fight wrinkles, improve firmness and elasticity. Does it do all that? In my experience it absolutely does. I’m using different brands’ serums and essences but even before I started those I saw a big difference in my skin. It helps reduce dark spots although I can’t say they are gone (I never knew about sunscreen when I was young so I have damage from years of outdoor exposure).

sunscreen ingredients

sunscreen ingredients

What is IR Defense? IR is a type of sun ray. We already know we need to protect against UVA and UVB rays but now there’s the one in the middle called IR. Rather than worry though using this day cream helps you fight the IR Rays with an ingredient called Elix IR, a knotgrass extract formulated with flavonoids to help defend against this type of ray. (See we learned something new today!)

Recapture Day + IR Defense contains a Bio Copper Complex that has been studied by the brands scientists, including the famous Dr. Doris Day, to specifically target visible signs of aging. This complex has the following:

• Neo-Dermyl is a cutting edge copper based ingredient that helps firm and reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles as it rejuvenates the skin.

• Sytenol A is unique and powerful retinol-like anti-oxidant that visibly evens and brightens skin tone.

• K 3 Vita C is a stable form of vitamin C that helps support natural collagen production and even skin tone.christie brinkley moisturizer box

I’m crazy about this day cream and I’m crazy about Christie Brinkley’s lovely attitude. You can find Recapture Day + IR Defense with and without sunscreen on her website and you can also go to HSN.com for some savings. There’s a great set there for only $99 with 3 fl. oz. Complete Clarity Daily Facial Exfoliating Polish, 1 fl. oz. Recapture Day + IR Defense Cream. and 1 fl. oz. Recapture 360 Night Beauty Treatment that I highly recommend. I’ve used all 3 of these items and I’m getting closer to my Christie Brinkley dream. — Marcia

3 new sun protection options from Kiehl’s Since 1851

This summer, Kiehl’s Since 1851 has introduced 3 NEW sun-protection formulas that address the whole body. From eyebrows to toenails, these three products equal full sun protection so you can play without worry until the sun sets.

Kiehl’s sent me these three new products to test:  Super Fluid UV Defense Sunscreen ($38-$61), Clearly Corrective Dark Circle Perfector ($38), and Activated Sun Protector ($29).

Kiehl's sun protection
Kiehl’s Super Fluid UV Defense Sunscreen SPF 50+ has been around for a few years, but this is a new and improved version that is even more silky and non-greasy. This lightweight sunscreen is great for the face since it leaves a matte finish. What a wonderful option for under makeup! The formula is very silky and it’s a pleasure to put on – just be sure to shake it up well before applying.

Kiehl’s Super Fluid UV Defense Sunscreen SPF 50+

So this is like a dream come true – sun protection for around the eye area that also brightens and covers dark circles. Clearly Corrective™ Dark Circle Perfector with SPF 30 has UVA/UVB protection, and the slight tint makes it a light concealer that is perfect for the beach or the pool. Ingredients include Vitamin C to reduce the appearance of under-eye circles, as well as caffeine to reduce puffiness. This just came out in June but is readily available online and in stores now.

Clearly Corrective™ Dark Circle Perfector with SPF 30

This next product’s name is a mouthful! Activated Sun ProtectorTM Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Water-Light Lotion for Face and Body is exactly what your face and body need for really active days. It has broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection, and the texture is like nothing I’ve ever tried before. It’s kind of watery and thin, but skin truly feels like silk after application. In addition to the sun protection, this really cool sunscreen has Vitamin E to help condition skin.

All of these sun protection options – plus tons and tons of other great items! – are available online at kiehls.com. If you get a chance, stop by the counter at high-end department stores. Kiehl’s is the best for samples and this line has great depth. I always discover something new when I visit!  – Lisa

Planning a summer escape? Don’t forget the Hawaiian Tropic.

I spend my entire year trying to recapture the smell of summertime…and nothing smells like summer like Hawaiian Tropic does. Who else remembers this?

photo from weheartthis.com

photo from weheartthis.com

I wore my hair just like that, I used to be that thin, and I used Hawaiian Tropic Deep Tanning Oil with no SPF so I could get as tan as physically possible.

Plan your summer escape with Hawaiian Tropic!

Well, times have changed and we no longer look for suntan lotion with NO SPFs, just that fabulous coconutty scent. Hawaiian Tropic has so many options now that there is definitely something for everything. They sent me some sunscreen products to test and these are my personal favorites.

Hawaiian Tropic Island Sport Lotion Sunscreen

Hawaiian Tropic Island Sport Lotion Sunscreen

Hawaiian Tropic ® Island Sport® Lotion Sunscreen is perfect for those who prefer suntan lotions. This is oil-free and non-greasy. It sinks in immediately and is sweat-resistant. In fact, it stays on through sweat and water and fiercely competitive volley ball games with your siblings for up to 80 minutes. Plus, it has UVA and UVB protection. Bring it on!!

Hawaiian Tropic® Island Sport® Clear Spray Sunscreen

Hawaiian Tropic® Island Sport® Clear Spray Sunscreen

Hawaiian Tropic® Island Sport® Clear Spray Sunscreen is the same formula but in a spray bottle. I love this spray – it has a very light mist and leaves skin feeling smooth, not all wet. Like the lotion, it has UVA and UVB protection and up to 80 minutes of water-resistant protection. It’s much easier to get this on the little ones too…you can chase them while spraying. So much easier to accomplish than with the lotion!

Hawaiian Tropic® Sheer Touch Ultra Radiance Clear Spray Sunscreen

Hawaiian Tropic® Sheer Touch Ultra Radiance Clear Spray Sunscreen

Hawaiian Tropic® Sheer Touch Ultra Radiance Clear Spray Sunscreen is a little fancier, a little more girly. This has a clear spray and a blend of guava, papaya and plumeria extracts. One spray of this sunscreen and skin is not only protected from the sun, it’s also super soft with a light sheen.

Hawaiian Tropic® Touch of Color Tinted Spray Lotion Sunscreen

Hawaiian Tropic® Touch of Color Tinted Spray Lotion Sunscreen

Hawaiian Tropic® Touch of Color Tinted Spray Lotion Sunscreen is, I have to admit, my favorite. I am sooo white now that I don’t actually bake myself in the sun anymore, and this not only protects and moisturizes my skin, it also give me an instant touch of color. This is a spray lotion and smells AMAZING!! Buttery coconut….all big umbrellas, cabana boys, and pina coladas. It’s exactly what I am looking for all year long!!

There is plenty of time left for great summer escapes. Just don’t forget your Hawaiian Tropic to make sure every escape is perfect!  – Lisa

Top Ten Sunscreens for 2015 – eyes, lips, body and face

Welcome to the 2015 version of favorite sunscreens. I’ve done both a Makeup Wars in 2013 on favorites and a Top Ten Tuesday in 2014. You’ll see some products that remain the same and some new ones. We can’t forget any part of our body and I didn’t want to forget children since I go through more sunscreen for them than I do for myself. — Marcia
1435625486_1115290AVEENO® Natural Protection Lotion Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 50  A lot of Aveeno products have fragrance so when I am sent one that is fragrance free I’m over the moon. I find myself using this for my body all the time. It’s $10.99 but I often find coupons or specials for it. This has become a staple for both my husband and myself.
1435625420_serum_510x600SUPERGOOP CITY SERUM is the one I want for my face. I buy this every summer. This is fragrance free and gentle on my skin. It wears really well under foundation and provides anti-aging benefits and SPF 30.
1435625218_eyecream_510x600SUPERGOOP ADVANCED AGING EYE CREAM* is another product that was on last year’s list. This SPF 37 sunscreen is a great undereye protectant. The applicator makes it easy to apply and is cooling at the same time. Supergoop is really a top notch brand.
1435625098_murad-invisiblur-300x259MURAD INVISIBLUR PERFECTING SHIELD* isn’t a sunscreen per se but with SPF 30 it’s great under foundation. It gives a totally clear sunscreen protection while also blurring imperfections. There are many days I use this and not an additional SPF protect.
1435625029_algenist-tmALGENIST REPAIRING TINT RADIANCE MOISTURIZER with SPF 30* is one of the foundations that I’ve been using a lot lately. Recently a friend blogged about it and how it totally changed her skin so out it came again. I’d forgotten just how wonderful it was. It comes in 4 shades and I wear it in Light. I love getting amazing skincare benefits along with hiding my redness and sunspots.
1435624971_6062_lg_1LATHER BROAD SPECTRUM SPF 15 LIP BALM is what I discovered after I started using the Lather Tinted Lip Balms. I like the spearmint the best but it’s great to try the 3 pack with citrus, spearmint and unscented since I need lip balm in every purse or pocket.
1435624891_balmfamily_510x6001SUPERGOOP FUSION LIP BALM SPF 30 is the one I like when I’m at the pool or splashpad with my babies. Even though I try not to be in direct sunlight, they love it. This squeeze tube comes in 2 flavors (mint and acai) with mint being my fave.
1435624812_1115092 AVEENO® Baby Natural Protection Lotion Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 50* is one of my main sunscreen for the kids. My granddaughter is 20 months old and she adores running around after her brother outside. I need sunscreen for them and this Aveeno is a pleasure to use. She doesn’t squirm when I apply it on her and it spreads easily. Bright sun or overcast days still need sunscreen and this is a great reasonably priced alternative.
1435624755_broad_spectrum_spf50_mineral_sunscreen_2015MUSTELA BROAD SPECTRUM MINERAL SPF 50 SUNSCREEN* is new to me and from the minute it arrived I knew it was perfect for my two little loves. This has both UVA and UVB protection in a mineral base and no fragrance.
1435624704_broad_spectrum_spf50_sun_stick.jpg.pagespeed.ce.dats3hfv_sMUSTELA BROAD SPECTRUM MINERAL SUNSCREEN STICK with SPF 50* is the one I let my grandson use. He loves rubbing the stick on himself and I finally have a way of applying sunscreen on him without a big struggle. Of course I sneak the Mustela lotion on the parts of his body he can’t reach. This is a win-win situation.
