Osmotics: When SPF met skincare

Osmotics Age Prevention

Osmotics Cosmeceuticals is a brand you’ve likely heard about since it’s sold in prestigious departments stores and has many products that are on the lips of people looking for results and not hype. Two of their products that are absolutely perfect for summer are their Age Prevention SPF products. With two products that make up their sun protection line they’ve cut to the chase, only creating what they consider to be the best of the best.

Osmotics Age Prevention: Protection Extreme SPF 45 and Sheer Facial Tint SPF 45

Age Prevention Protection Extreme SPF 45 ($45) is the daily sun protection that you need. Not only does it have Broad Spectrum UVA/UVB but it’s a sheer formula that is oil-free. It’s lightweight yet I know that it’s protecting me from the damages of the sun. I highly advocate wearing sunscreen 365 days a year since it’s essential to prevent premature aging and help against skin damage from the sun.

Osmotics Age Prevention Protection Extreme SPF 45

If you follow Beauty Info Zone then you know my feelings about fragranced products so you know I’m thrilled that Osmotics Age Prevention Protection Extreme SPF 45 is fragrance free. It leaves my skin feeling silky and wears wonderfully under makeup. This convenient tube is one I can carry with me if I want.

While I feel it’s great for my more mature skin because of the powerful antioxidants that fight free radical damage, I also can recommend it for those of you starting on a good skincare journey.

The second product is Age Prevention Sheer Facial Tint SPF 45 ($39)  which uses the same sunscreen ingredients and gives you the same protection yet it contains a light tint so that you get double duty with this: get the fabulous full spectrum protection while blurring imperfections to enhance your natural skin tone.

Osmotics Age Prevention Sheer Tint SPF 45

The Sheer Tint is available in 3 shades (Light, Medium, Dark). I was sent Light which didn’t look that light when I first applied it to my hand for a swatch but once blended onto my face, it was a great shade for me. I can use this with or without a foundation.

Sheer Tint contains antioxidant vitamins and Sodium Hyaluronate for softer, smoother, healthier skin. This is so gentle on skin that it can be used after skincare procedures like peels and microdermabrasion.

Both of these Osmotics Age Prevention sunscreens have the same Active Ingredients so you aren’t trading protection for beauty.

 With Osmotics Cosmeceuticals Age Prevention line you’ve got a marriage made in heaven: sun protection and high-end skincare! Whichever you choose to make your skin better, you can’t go wrong.  —  Marcia

Add some natural skincare to your life with Geneva Naturals

Geneva Naturals

Sometimes I just take things for granted, for example thinking that I wrote about Geneva Naturals Skincare so that you’d know about this natural, well-priced line. And then I realize that I’m the only one who knows this since I forgot to tell you. Well the time has come to reveal the secrets of the two Geneva Naturals Skincare products that I’ve been using since October!

Geneva Naturals is a relatively new brand on the market and is sold on Amazon. There are 5 products in the line with the core of the line having 3: Advanced Vitamin C+E Serum, Advanced Anti-Aging Cream with SPF, and Advanced Anti-Aging Retinol Cream. I have the two creams and now I’m sorry I didn’t request the Serum when the company sent these for review.

Geneva Natural Anti-Aging Cream with SPF 20 and Anti-Aging Retinol Cream

Geneva Naturals was created in a collaboration with a leading Swiss dermatologist. Their mission is to offer natural, effective skincare that doesn’t break the bank. They use non-toxic ingredients to bring ageless beauty our way.

I’ve actually used this for a month at a time twice over the last 8 months. When I first received it I was using it right away but then in the craziness of my last broken leg I put it aside and only found it again in March. So I started using it again. Now I find myself reaching for it a few times a week, in between other skincare products.

Geneva Naturals Advanced Anti-Aging Cream (unscented) with sunscreen SPF20

Geneva Naturals Advanced Anti-Aging Facial Moisturizer ($19.99) is available in 2 versions with one being unscented. YEA for that option! The ingredients are pretty wonderful featuring “Edelweiss, a special anti-aging plant that grows in the Swiss Alps. Combined with Hyaluronic Acid, Coconut Oil, Moringa Oil and Vitamin E this day cream is specifically formulated to restore firmness and provide and every day protection from the sun for a more youthful and vibrant skin.

Advanced Anti-Aging Cream (unscented) with sunscreen SPF20

Here’s what I learned about Edelweiss: it’s a short lived flower found in the Alps and it has natural levels of UV protection along high levels of Leontopodic Acids A and B for remarkable anti-inflammatory properties. There’s also natural sun protection in Coconut Oil so that when they combine these ingredients they end up with a powerful protective product. As you know (or should know by now) you need suncare protection every single day of the year. Now that the sun is out for longer periods of time it means you need to be even more careful than before.

Geneva Naturals Advanced Anti-Aging Cream with sunscreen SPF20

Advanced Anti-Aging Cream with sunscreen SPF20 is a thick lotion that takes a few minutes to absorb. I have never found it interfered with my foundation which is important. Once something balls up … out it goes!

Geneva Naturals Anti-Aging Retinol Cream

At night I switch to Geneva Naturals Anti-Aging Retinol Cream ($23.99). I don’t normally use retinol so I look for products that have fairly low doses of the ingredient. It’s perfect for me since I haven’t had any reaction to this anti-aging cream. It too uses Edelweiss extract to help stimulate cell regeneration and build collagen to diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and blemishes.

Geneva Naturals Anti-Aging Retinol Cream (partial list of ingredients)

Retinol has many benefits including the fact that it can interrupt the free-radical damage process that causes wrinkling and aging signs. You aren’t ever too young or too old to add this into your skincare regimen since it increases collagen production, helps fade discoloration from sun damage and hopefully builds elastin.

Geneva Naturals Anti-Aging Retinol Cream

The Retinol Cream has a thinner consistency than the Anti-Aging Cream and it does have a fragrance that is on the natural side and doesn’t linger long. This cream works particularly well with serums and even with added Hyaluronic Acid products.

All Geneva Naturals products are paraben-free, sulfate-free, phthalate-free & cruelty free. If you are looking for an affordable natural brand I recommend Geneva Naturals. You’ll feel like you are using a luxury brand and you’ll appreciate that the cost is one not normally associated with luxury. I’ve been very happy with my experiences with these products and plan to keep them in my routine.  —  Marcia

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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.

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
