Rodan + Fields Redefine Skin System and Acute Care #ExpressYourself

Rodan + Fields Redefine System

Rodan + Fields Redefine System

Welcome to the world of Rodan + Fields Redefine System and Redefine Acute Care. It’s been rocking my world lately along with a lot of bloggers. This was provided by the iFabbo shop and we are all raving about it.

Rodan + Fields Redefine Acute Care

Rodan + Fields Redefine Acute Care

My experience with Rodan + Fields goes back at least 5 years. Just before I began blogging on Beauty Info Zone I became a seller of Rodan + Fields skincare. I used it religiously for a year but decided to bow out of selling since that wasn’t part of my passion. I did have passion for the skincare and using it again reminded me why.

Rodan + Fields has several different regimens but I originally Acute Care was only available with Redefine. As much as I’m enjoying the Redefine System again, it’s the new Acute Care for Expression Lines that has won me over.

REDEFINE is the regimen for women with lines, pores and loss of firmness and comes with 4 products:

Refine Daily Cleansing Mask is your first step. This is both a cleanser and a mask. It’s truly gentle enough to use daily. Apply it to your face and let it sit for a few minutes. I like to use this just before my shower so that it’s easier to wash off. It never hardens completely so you don’t feel like your face is about to crack. It has gentle dimethicone microbeads that create the exfoliation along with kaolin clay. It gets my face sparkling clean and leaves no residue.

Next step is the Pore Minimizing Toner. This toner is what got me restarted using toner after skipping it for several years. I felt then and now that this helped to restore the pH balance to my face and got me ready for more skincare.

There are two moisturizers in the kit. Triple Defense Moisture with Broadspectrum SPF 30 is for daytime while Overnight Restorative Cream is obviously for night time use but they really are interchangeable. Both have a mild floral fragrance and are creamy to the touch. I don’t like fragranced products but Rodan + Fields has never bothered me. I also use a serum prior to applying these two products.

Now for the fun part and what sets Redefine apart from the crowd –  Acute Care for Expression Lines.

Acute Care for Expression Lines

Acute Care for Expression Lines

ACUTE CARE is a set of 10 packets with two pads in each. They are totally different than any eye mask or pad I’ve ever used. First you can use them wherever you have expression lines for example where you have crow’s feet or “smile” lines. Second, you leave them on for about 8 hours though the time is up to you. Use these 2 to 3 times per week for one month.

The first time I used them I made a big mistake and put them under my eyes. The skin there is far too delicate for this purpose and another type of treatment is better in that position. It was very uncomfortable under my eyes and I was questioning what I’d gotten myself into! I then began using them on my crow’s feet and oh my, what a difference they made. I chose to wear them on the days I was home all day or home for at least 8 hours and wasn’t wearing any cosmetics.

I attached these carefully at the sides of my eyes making sure that my eyelashes didn’t get in the way since I was usually working around the house. Once I had them in a comfortable place I ran my finger up and down to ‘seal’ them. As R+F tells us “REDEFINE ACUTE CARE™ smooths wrinkles with proprietary Liquid Cone Technology that melts line-defying peptides and hyaluronic acid directly into the wrinkle for a more youthful appearance.”

At first I could feel them on and the little cones inside felt like they were gently pricking my skin. Within a very short time though I barely noticed them on. I chose not to sleep in them because I don’t like taking a chance with my insomnia and I love my nighttime skincare and wanted to continue that.

When I removed these I noticed a little whiteness from the peptides and hyaluronic acid but washing my face with a soft cloth removed that right away. I really noticed the difference the next morning and it would last for a few days.

I happened to go to the dermatologist this week and I mentioned them to her. Even though her office does procedures like Botox and fillers she felt that these were a great product for many people, especially anyone with an eye disease like Myasthenia Gravis or someone on blood thinners. She listed a variety of people that she’d recommend Acute Care for so that really impressed me.

Both of these systems are ones I’d recommend (and no I don’t sell this anymore) but what I plan on buying are the Acute Care patches for Expression Lines. After using them for one month, it’s recommended that you wait 2-3 months and use them again if needed. They aren’t inexpensive ($220 for the box)  but this is something I’d like to continue.

Pixi Pixi Pixi – how you complete me

Pixi Beauty products you need

Pixi Beauty products you need

Pixi Beauty continues to surprise and delight me with the products that they send. These 5 cosmetics will bring you brighter skin, gorgeous nails, and lips & eyes that shine. All of these will give you a special glow.

Pixi Glow Mist

Pixi Glow Mist

Pixi Glow is almost a cult product. It’s one of the most popular products that Pixi Beauty has created. They’ve taken it one step forward now and created Pixi by Petra Glow Mist. This mist works with Pixi Glow but it’s a totally separate product. Its goal is to give you an all-over glow for a radiant, dewy effect. It’s a spray that really works. You can use this before makeup to hydrate, protect and nourish your skin. Or use it after makeup to add a dewy finish. Plus you can use it any time you want to refresh your makeup look and add that wonderful glow. At $15 for this 2.7 oz bottle you’ve got yourself a reasonably priced winner.

Pixi Beauty Fairy Dust in Olive Gold

Pixi Beauty Fairy Dust in Olive Gold

Pixi Beauty makes a pigment product that they call Fairy Dust ($10). There are two new shades added to this collection and they are beauties. First is Olive Gold which I knew I’d love before I even opened the package. Olive Gold is described as “vintage gilded moss shimmer” and that alone made me want it on my eyes instantly. I have brown eyes and I think that the gold with an undertone of green makes for an especially pretty eye.

Pixi Olive Gold Fairy Dust

Another new shade is Silver Glow which is described as “Satin silver with a lavender-gold sheen”.

Pixi Fairy Dust in Silver Glow

I bet that reading the name Silver Glow sounded a bit scary since silver isn’t the easiest shade to pull off once you are over your twenties. But silver that isn’t metallic is a beautiful shade and this has that touch of lavender and drop of gold to make it gleam.

The sponge applicator doesn’t apply on my eyes smoothly so I take their recommendation of using a fluffy brush and use this all over my eyelid as a wash. If I want to get more dramatic I’ll use a mixing medium to darken the silver or I’ll use a charcoal or black in the outer crease.

Pixi Tinted Brilliance Balm in Lucent Glow

Pixi Tinted Brilliance Balm in Lucent Glow

While not a new product Pixi Tinted Brilliance Balm in Lucent Glow ($14) is a new shade for me. Actually it’s not really a shade, you don’t want to wear this alone, or at least I don’t. I love Pixi’s lip crayons because they hydrate, are easy to apply, and look good. Lucent Glow is a very light luminous rose gold shimmer in a translucent pink base. This goes well with the theme of GLOW for February’s products. This will look good all year round though and bring a lift to any lipsticks you happen to be wearing. 

Pixi Beauty Amethyst Amore nail polish

Pixi Beauty Amethyst Amore nail polish

For me the star of the show is Pixi’s Amethyst Amore nail polish. I can’t even begin to tell you how many people took my hand over the week I wore this to look at this fabulous deep blue-violet shade. Amethyst Amore is well named since it was instant ‘amore’ with this polish. Pixi wears beautifully on me, lasting a week with no problem.

I’ve raved about Pixi many times before and products like these will keep me raving and talking about their virtues. All 5 of these are being used and will continue to be used by me with amore. — Marcia

Pixi Beauty is available at their website as well as at Target stores. These products will be available March 5 at stores but to be assured of getting the products I want though I rely on Pixibeauty.com.

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

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.

Makeup artist finds from Phytomer – and a giveaway!

Phytomer GiveawayHow about another amazing giveaway?  Phytomer, a French-based professional skin and body care line found in high-end spas all over the world, asked me to choose 3 of my favorite products for a giveaway.   They sent some really terrific products, which I expected since they are one of the few spa brands with their own laboratory and team of scientists.  I chose these three makeup artist-friendly items for the giveaway:  Rose Visage Toning Cleansing Lotion, Hydracontinue Radiance Energizing Cream, and CC Creme with SPF 20.

If you are a makeup artist, you will want all three of these products in your bag of tricks.  And if you just specialize in doing your own makeup, you will want them too!

Phytomer Rosee Visage

Phytomer Rosee Visage

The ROSÉE VISAGE TONING CLEANSING LOTION ($33.50) is everything you need to cleanse and tone all in one bottle.  It is perfect for pretty much everyone since it’s free of alcohol and super gentle.  It cleans like crazy but doesn’t leave a tacky film behind.  Skin is soft, clean, and ready for product.  This has a very soft rose scent that doesn’t linger.  It really is fantastic.

Phytomer Hydracontinue Radiance Energizing Cream

Every makeup artist wants a cream that will hydrate skin and work as a perfect base for makeup.  Phytomer’s HYDRACONTINUE RADIANCE ENERGIZING CREAM ($54) is the perfect answer.  This lightweight cream soaks in quickly and leaves the skin with an amazingly soft texture.  Check out the clinical test results:

Healthy complexion: 95%*
Immediately hydrated skin: 85%*
After 30 minutes, level of hydration: +66%**
Revitalised skin: 85%*
Toned skin: 85%*

I love this as a primer.  It works on every skin type from dry to oily, and it makes a perfect canvas for makeup application.  This is a wonderful multi-tasker that needs to be in your kit.

PHYTOMER CC CREME SPF 20 ($51) is such a great find!  It just came on to the market last March.  This creme is fabulous all by itself, or patted on before foundation and under heavier makeup. It evens out skin tone, gives an extra glow, moisturizes, refines pores, and provides sun protection.  There is only one shade but it’s very forgiving, and works on all but super light or dark skin tones.  The effect is beautiful and natural looking.  Phytomer, please make this in more shades!!

Phytomer has sustainable products that truly deliver results.  This is one giveaway everyone – professional makeup artist and cosmetics aficionados – will be extremely happy with.  You will be sending me a gushing thank you note soon!!

Phytomer is giving all three products to one lucky winner.  This fabulous giveaway runs through October 13th at 11:59 p.m. (If comments aren’t open please comment on our Facebook page or email me at marciaandlisa@gmail.com). — Lisa

A cult favorite: Pixi Glow Tonic

pixi logoYou know how it goes. She tells two friends, then they tell two friends and so on, and so on. (If you are as old as me you will remember that commercial!)  Well, that is exactly what happened with Pixi Beauty Glow Tonic ($29).  Word spread fast about how terrific this exfoliating toner is and suddenly it became as desirable as a cronut.

Pixi Beauty Glow Tonic

Pixi Beauty Glow Tonic

When Pixi Beauty sent the BIZ this ‘exfoliating facial glow tonic’ to test, I was skeptical. One of the key ingredients is witch hazel, which can be problematic. Witch hazel is a great antioxidant and anti-irritant, but it also contains tannin which can cause irritation. To remove the tannins, witch hazel is often distilled – and within that process, alcohol is added, which isn’t great for the skin (www.naturaldatabase.com). So I wondered…has Pixi Beauty found the perfect ratio of witch hazel so the tonic works without irritation?

Glow Tonic is meant to exfoliate, firm, and tighten skin. It’s used after cleansing and before serums and/or moisturizer. The key ingredients include ginseng (for skin repair), fructose (for moisturizing), aloe vera (for moisturizing), and 5% glycolic acid (for exfoliating). And guess what? It’s alcohol free. Ah, so the mystery is solved…some people may experience irritation from the tannin, but most will simply enjoy the antioxidant properties without any issues.

Pixi Glow Tonic 2

I definitely like this. It goes on very wet, so there is some dry time involved – not a bunch, maybe about 30 seconds more than most toners. It is strong so it’s not something I use to help remove any leftover eye makeup. It definitely leaves skin clear and it gets rid of dead skin cells so my skin glows.

I totally get why Glow Tonic is a cult favorite. You can find Pixi Beauty online and at Target stores – but good luck finding Glow Tonic because it is often sold out. However, it’s worth a try – check it out and see if Glow Tonic is something you will want to tell two friends about…and so on, and so on, and so on.  – Lisa

Put some space on your face with Kiehls

Check out this really cool social media contest – Kiehl’s ‘Put Some Space On Your Face’ gives you (well, actually your face!) an opportunity to travel with them to space.  The giveaway is in celebration of the new Kiehl’s Oil Eliminator line.  They sent its ‘hero’ product (24-Hour Anti-Shine Moisturizer For Men) into space. For real. The product was on a custom rig that was sent 20 miles above the surface of the earth.

Kiehls SpaceFace

You can see the video at www.kiehlsinspace.com and can also enter the giveaway there.  Just take a photo of yourself in mid-air then hashtag it #SpaceFace.  Random winners will win their face a trip to space via a 3D custom astronaut figurine with their face on it.  That figurine is attached to a shuttle and sent into the stratosphere.  After the figurines land, the winners are sent their personalized, space traveling action figures.

What is this new line that has inspired the space travel?  The OIL ELIMINATOR FOR MEN, brand new this month.  There are three products that tackle men’s oily skin, mattifying and reducing the appearance of pores.

Kiehls Oil Eliminator

So why the space travel?  It’s all in the ingredients.

Oil Eliminator uses Aerolite, an advanced material based on the science of aerogel, which has been used in space exploration (for example, as an insulating material on Mars Exploration Rover in 1997). Aerolite is the lightest solid material on Earth because it is composed of up to 99.98% air by volume, helping to provide a weightless feel on the skin. The substance is likened to a gel from which the liquid portion has been removed without causing the material to shrink in size or collapse. Due to its highly porous structure and large surface area, it is able to absorb FOUR TIMES its own weight in oil, providing efficient sebum absorption capabilities. Oil Eliminator 24-hour Anti-Shine Moisturizer, with Aerolite technology, helps reduce pore visibility and imperfections.

In general, men have different skin issues than women.  A man has more sebum-producing sebaceous glands, so they have more oil production and larger pores.  Plus they sweat more, which means every more shine and oily residue on their faces.  Kiehl’s three new products containing Aerolite address these concerns.

close up of the Deep Cleansing Exfoliating Face Wash

The Deep Cleansing Exfoliating Face Wash ($20) is a soap-free and sulfate-free cleanser.  It has crushed Apricot Seeds to help exfoliate, which also decreases the appearance of pores.  It doesn’t dry out the skin, and it does a terrific job of smoothing skin texture and getting rid of shine.

The Refreshing Shine Control Toner ($20) is a cooling spray that tones and also decreases the appearance of sweat and oil.  The Capryloyl Glycine dries up the bad stuff, but doesn’t dry out skin.

Moisuturizer swatch

24-Hour Anti-Shine Moisuturizer swatch

The 24-Hour Anti-Shine Moisturizer for Men ($27) is a lightweight moisturizer with Aerolite to absorb oil and sweat.  The result is a shine-free appearance and soft, hydrated skin. It also has Totara Wood Extract to diminish the appearance of pores.

My 21-year-old son, who has sensitive, oily, breakout prone skin, thinks this line is the bomb.  He gets the best results using the Deep Cleansing Exfoliating Face Wash in the shower, then toning with the Refreshing Shine Control Toner, and following with the 24-Hour Anti-Shine Moisturizer for Men.

My son defying gravity!

This is a terrific line for men so be sure to take a look.  And don’t forget to put some space on your face!  Snap that photo then hashtag it #SpaceFace on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.  - Lisa

Healthy skin with Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cleanser and Toner

The Kiehl’s line has always fascinated me. The packaging is old-school pharmacy and the prices are extremely reasonable, especially for a line found in high-end department stores. The BIZ was sent two Kiehl’s products to test:  the Ultra Facial Cleanser (5 oz. tube is $19.50) and the Ultra Facial Toner (8.4 oz. bottle is $16). Both are terrific skin care products.

Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cleanser and Toner

Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cleanser and Toner

The Ultra Facial Cleanser is a no-frills, no messing around water-soluble cleanser that does exactly what a great cleanser should do. It dissolves even the heaviest makeup without stripping the skin thanks to emollient ingredients like Squalane, Apricot Kernel Oil, Vitamin E, and Avocado Oil. This cleanser will work for even very sensitive skin and another great plus is that it’s fragrance-free.

Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cleanser and Toner

Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cleanser and Toner

The Ultra Facial Cleanser foams up slightly as you use it and it’s a terrific cleanser to use with face cleansers like the Clarisonic and the Luna. This is one of Kiehl’s most popular products and it comes by its terrific reputation honestly!

Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cleanser

Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cleanser

The Ultra Facial Toner surprised me a bit, because it’s a little more creamy and thick than the typical toner. It’s very emollient and does a great job of hydrating the skin and preparing it for other skin care products like serums, treatments, and moisturizers. Moisturizing ingredients include Squalane, Apricot Kernel Oil, and Avocado Oil. It also has the excellent antioxidant Vitamin E to help fight off free radicals.

Kiehl's Ultra Facial Toner

The Ultra Facial Cleanser and Toner are my very first Kiehl’s products ever and I’m glad they were my introduction to the line! I recommend them both, but I definitely think the Ultra Facial Cleanser is a must have.  – Lisa
