nyl may mean nothing but it’s sure something great with NYL Skincare

nyl Skincare is the name. Nil is the pronunciation. What does it mean though?

nyl stands for what is NOT used by the company. They are set on improving products by eliminating the toxins in products and creating a new category in skincare. nyl Skincare concentrates on making products in small batches. But what makes these products different is that these all natural products are handmade weekly in a kitchen, not a factory. They want to deliver clean yet effective products that won’t harm you or the environment.

samples

This isn’t a big conglomeration. There are only 11 products plus a few kits that are made by nyl Skincare so they can stay true to their mission. I’ll start with one of the collections to show you an overview of their goods.

nyl Skincare Starter Kit

There are two ways to purchase this Starter Kit, with Chamomile Face Wash or with Rosewater Face Wash. Inside the box you’ll find the 4 deluxe sample size items in a burlap bag that can be saved to hold the products or to hold other items. It contains 1 jar of Whipped Hand & Body Lotion – 2 oz, 1 jar of Gentle Sugar Body Polish – 2 oz, 1 bottle of Velvet Transformative Serum – 1/4 oz and 1 bottle of either Rosewater Face Wash or Chamomile Face Wash – 2 oz.

nyl Starter Kit

I love that nyl Skincare not only carries a kit like this but they sell smaller samples ($8 each) of their most popular items. It’s a way to test and see which fits your needs. I also love that even though the products are all natural the fragrances are natural too and not overpowering. Most smell like citrus which is my favorite.

nyl Whipped Hand & Body Lotion

Speaking of citrus this Whipped Hand & Body Lotion has a citrus fragrance. Mostly I smell lime. What makes this such a great product are ingredients like organic Meadowfoam Seed Oil which was chosen for its amazing moisturizing and rejuvenating capabilities. When applied to the skin, it forms a moisture barrier and will assist in preventing moisture loss. It’s a non-comedogenic oil which means it won’t clog your pores, has a non-greasy feel and your skin will drink it up. 

Whipped Hand & Body Lotion

Since it’s not greasy at all and absorbs well it doesn’t stop you from getting dressed or doing things for your life. The fragrance lightly lingers but most people won’t notice that.

nyl Chamomile Face Wash

The Chamomile Face Wash is the only product in this kit that I wouldn’t purchase in full size but that’s because I’m just not a fan of chamomile. While it acts as an astringent and has anti-inflammatory qualities this one is stronger than my nose likes. This is a great cleanser though for oily skin, especially for those with breakouts. It contains Willow Bark Extract and essential oils that work together to fight bacteria that wants to form into acne. The Rosewater Face Wash is more up my alley since that’s formulated for dry, normal or sensitive skin.

nyl Skincare Velvet Transformative Serum

nyl Skincare Velvet Transformative Serum is the product in the Starter Kit that I was most excited to use. I am a serum girl so having the opportunity to try this made me happy. They named this well since my skin does feel velvety when using this. While it’s recommended for twice a day I like using it in the morning because of the feel and the light dewy radiance it provides.

nyl blends the highest quality oils* that are known for anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties into a dry oil that amazingly vanishes into my skin. I feel my face is well protected and nourished plus it’s non-comedogenic so it won’t clog pores.

*organic meadowfoam seed oil/chardonnay grape seed oil/acai oil/blackberry seed oil/blueberry seed oil/carrot seed oil/cranberry seed oil/marula oil, pomegranate seed oil/rosehip seed oil/vegetable squalene/vitamin E oil/watermelon seed oil/essential oils. (makes me hungry)

nyl Skincare Velvet Transformative Serum

You only need a few drops of the serum. Warm it up between your fingertips and press it onto your skin. It even works well under eyes.

nyl Sugar Body Polish

The fourth delightful item in the Starter Kit is the nyl Gentle Sugar Body Polish. This organic body scrub is a simple blend of organic sugar and oils. It not only exfoliates, it moisturizes, improves circulation, polishes and smoothes skin. It can be used in place of shaving cream too.

nyl Sugar Body Polish

Massage this onto your skin until the sugar crystals have melted and you’re left with soft skin with a touch of oil that dries. I usually use a washcloth to make sure the crystals are well removed. It’s not only delightful but it has a lemon fragrance that makes me smile.

nyl Skincare Starter Kit

All of this for $46. Or you can buy smaller sizes for $32 but I think it’s great with these sizes.

Now onto a full size product from nyl Skincare that I’m crazy about for summer especially: Organic Shimmer Scrub.

nyl Skincare Organic Shimmer Scrub

The Organic Shimmer Scrub invites me into my shower with its wonderful citrus smell and has me leave with a beautiful soft shimmer look. I think it’s going to be wonderful year round but in warm weather is when we wear our skin! Bathing suits, tanks, off shoulder tops, shorts, capris. Any time your skin is bared to the world you’ll want this extra glow.

nyl Organic Shimmer Scrub

Much like the Gentle Sugar Body Polish it contains wonderful essential oils* and unrefined cane sugar to exfoliate, moisturize, improve circulation, and leaves behind that hint of shimmer. nyl says “Smells like sunshine and shimmers like moonlight.” I smell lemon and orange mostly.

nyl Organic Shimmer Scrub

Use the wooden spoon to get out the amount you want. The more shimmer you want the more scrub you should use. To lesson the amount of shimmer just rub with a washcloth or towel to tone it down. I don’t find it too shimmery with the small amount I use.

nyl Organic Shimmer Scrub

nyl Organic Shimmer Scrub after

nyl Organic Shimmer Scrub is packaged in a firm plastic container that is easy to scoop product from. I try to keep it away from water since I don’t want to mix the wonderful oils too much so I close it the instant I’ve put it on my skin.

*Ingredients: unrefined cane sugar/rosehip seed oil/meadowfoam seed oil/grape seed oil/coconut oil/ederberry extract/vitamin E Oil/essential oils of begamot, grapefruit and tangerine/mica

nyl Skincare is on my yes list for many reasons including that it’s free of toxins, animal products, parabens, and petroleum products, everything nyl makes is vegan and cruelty free. This is the wave of the future which you can use right now.  —  Marcia

Save time and whiten teeth with these winter beauty hacks from Aquis and Mira-Teeth!

Winter Beauty Hacks!

Winter means static, which causes havoc on your hair. It also means pale skin, which emphasizes yellowing teeth. How about a few winter beauty hacks to solve these problems? Sleek gorgeous hair and white beautiful teeth – yes, please!!

samples, affiliate links

To take care of frizz and static, and to also minimize the time your hair is wet and cut down your styling time you’ve got to try AQUIS Hair Towels and Turbans.

Aquis Towel Lisse Luxe in Chevron

Saving time – like 50% less time with the blow dryer – plus destroying annoying static is a major winter beauty hack. Beauty Info Zone has been using AQUIS Hair Towels and Turbans for years.  I love the Hair Turban which has been my go-to forever, but recently I’ve converted to the AQUIS Waffle Luxe Long Hair Towel (19 x 52 in – 50 x 132cm).

AQUIS Waffle Luxe Long Hair Towel

AQUIS Waffle Luxe Long Hair Towel

Aquis Lisse Luxe Towel in Chevron

Nice to have something that is specific for long hair! It’s longer than the regular size, about 25% more, which I need since my hair is about mid-back length. The towel is made with AQUITEX, which dries hair super quick and cuts down on frizz and split ends. It also has magical properties that make for static-free hair! It’s incredible.

If you have thick, course/textured hair you will want the AQUIS Waffle Luxe Hair Towel ($35/Sephora.com) Most hair types will do great with the AQUIS Lisse Luxe Hair Towel ($30/Sephora.com). And of course if you have long hair like mine, go with the AQUIS Waffle Luxe Long Hair Towel ($45/Sephora.com).

Mira-Teeth Ultrasound Toothbrush and Ultrasound Toothpaste Gel

How about a hack for super white teeth? The Mira-Teeth Ultrasound Toothbrush and Ultrasound Toothpaste Gel is what you need, not only as a whitening hack but also as a traveling hack. This toothbrush is the answer to rotating or swiveling brush heads, providing a gentler cleaning without irritating the gums. The results are pretty powerful – a super deep antibacterial cleaner and tooth whitener within a totally transportable toothbrush.

Mira-Teeth Ultrasound Toothbrush and Ultrasound Toothpaste Gel

Mira-Teeth Ultrasound Toothbrush and Ultrasound Toothpaste Gel

First of all, this toothbrush cleans teeth FAST. The ultrasound works via air oscillations and it actually cleans teeth in just 60 to 90 seconds – talk about saving time!! Even if you have ‘deep pockets’ this is a toothbrush for you, because the ultrasound penetrates deeply and gets in even the smallest crevices with very little effort on your part.

Mira-Teeth Ultrasound Toothbrush – you know it’s on when the blue lights are on

Mira-Teeth Ultrasound Toothbrush

Mira-Teeth Ultrasound Toothbrush comes with two brush heads

It’s also extremely gentle. You don’t have to fight with plaque because the ultrasound breaks it up. It gets rid of tartar and you won’t experience bleeding gums brushing with the Mira-Teeth Ultrasound Toothbrush.

A major plus is the ultrasound really attacks stains! It takes your teeth right back to their original color while it gets rid of all that bacteria and plaque. If you smoke, drink wine, eat a lot of beets, whatever…this toothbrush (and the special toothpaste) will take care of everything for you – and quickly.

Mira-Teeth Ultrasound Toothpaste Gel

Speaking of the toothpaste, you want to use the Mira-Teeth Toothpaste for the best results. It tastes great and it’s specially formulated for use with the ultrasonic toothbrush – you don’t use the Mira-Teeth Ultrasound Toothbrush with regular toothpaste. The ultrasonic brush makes microscopic nanobubbles in this toothpaste that do all the work and keep teeth healthy, protecting enamel and reducing wear and tear on teeth.

Mira-Teeth Ultrasound Toothbrush

Brushing your teeth with the Mira-Teeth Ultrasound Toothbrush couldn’t be easier. You first brush normally with the toothbrush and toothpaste to get rid of large food particles, then you turn on the ultrasound and hold the brush head against the surface of your teeth (inside, outside, and chewing surfaces) for a few seconds. That’s it! The brush rarely needs charging and you do that with the included USB cable.

I am extremely impressed with this toothbrush – my teeth are incredibly clean in such a short time and they are definitely whiter.  It really is amazing! And what a terrific toothbrush for travel – no worries about charging or plugging it in and every time I brush I get a whitening treatment. The Mira-Teeth Starter Kit retails for $199 and is available on Techmira.com.

With these winter beauty hacks I am ready for another six more weeks of winter or more no problem!  – Lisa

Mindful beauty with Yuni Winter Wonderland

Baby, it’s cold outside! However if you are a workout junkie your temperature is rising as you work it and sweat, whether it’s interval training, yoga, core barre workouts or Crossfit. Yuni has fantastic travel kits that are perfect for any workout bag – they have everything you need for a shower without any water at all. You can design your own or go with ones they have designed. Today I have the WinterWonderland– Reset & Rejuvenate Kit ($39) to tell you about and it’s a fantastic little set that has everything to clean you up and cool you down.

sample/affiliate links

This awesome set has some of Yuni’s top sellers, including Shower Sheets (Body Wipes), Chillax (Muscle Recovery Gel), Flash Bath (No-Rinse Body Cleanser), and Rise and Chill (Cooling Body Gel). This handy set comes in a beautiful ocean blue zippered bag that says YUNI Mindful Beauty for an Active Life. The bag is made from a very sturdy canvas that will withstand any sort of shenanigans.

Here are four products included that will take you from your workout to your workday without the benefit a real shower, no problem.

Shower Sheets:  There are three Shower Sheets included. These are large body wipes that clean your body, leaving it feeling fresh and smelling good. I love these especially when traveling. The body wipe is truly large enough to clean your whole ‘bad self’ – it’s like a shower without the water. This is what you want after a particularly grueling workout, or after swimming to get rid of that chlorine smell when you don’t have time or access to a shower.

Flash Bath:  This is a foamy no-bath body cleanser. Just squirt some foam into your hands, rub over skin, and it instantly takes away odor and leaves skin super soft thanks to a blend of antibacterial Neem extract and aloe vera. It has a clean, outdoorsy scent that is pleasant and sticks around for a while. It’s amazing when you are in a big hurry because it dries almost instantly and really cleans the skin.

Chillax Muscle Recovery Gel:  The roller ball gently massages sore muscles while the gel cools and soothes sore, inflamed muscles almost immediately. Fair Trade Green Tea Extract and arnica calm down inflammation, and peppermint eases pain. It smells amazing and really helps the post-workout muscle blues. It’s fantastic on my neck and shoulders after arm day, and essential for my thighs and calves after leg day.

Rise and Chill also soothes tired muscles and helps you get going again right away. It’s a gel that absorbs quickly, cooling your body down and giving it tons of hydration, energizing tired muscles and making them feel terrific.

I continue to be extremely impressed with YUNI Beauty.  All the items are portable multi-taskers that are not only sustainable, they are also wonderfully affordable. You can purchase everything separately and build your own kit, including the travel bags at YUNIBeauty.com.

YUNI Beauty is currently available at YUNIBeauty.com, select YogaWorks, Credo BeautyBeautyKind.comSephora.com and Sephora.ca.  – Lisa

Arbonne Rescue and Renew Detox Face Mask

If you have large, congested pores, Rescue & Renew Detox Face Mask ($44) comes to the rescue. This is a creamy French pink clay mask that goes on wet then pulls out dirt and oil as it dries, closing up those pores and making them look smaller in the process.
• Helps skin appear brighter and promotes the look of smoother, softer, and refreshed-looking skin
• Leaves the complexion looking cleansed and renewed

Arbonne Rescue and Renew Detox Face Mask

• Dandelion extract contributes to detoxifying effects that promote the appearance of overall skin health
• Turmeric extract helps to promote radiant-looking skin
• Ginger root extract helps counteract the look of dull, lackluster skin by enhancing the appearance of skin radiance

As the mask dries, you can actually see where the concentration of dirt and yucky stuff is – it’s fascinating. The formula uses an oil-pulling technology with 5 self-neutralizing acids to clean skin and leave it looking brighter, plus it has rosemary oil which is very hydrating so skin stays wonderfully moisturized. This is a terrific face mask with great ingredients that lives up to Rescue and Renew name!

Rescue and Renew Detox Body Wash

The Rescue Renew Detox Body Wash ($32) is a lovely, citrus-y smelling body wash that leaves skin cleansed and detoxed yet moist and hydrated at the same time. I always have problems in the winter with dry, itchy skin but whenever I use this body wash my skin feels great. The citrus scent comes from grapefruit and orange essential oils, and the formula also has two excellent skin conditioning agents – alfalfa and chicory root extracts.
• Cleans oil, dirt and other impurities from the skinto help revive lackluster-looking skin

I think this is a perfect body wash for winter since it takes of dry, itchy skin and it’s especially good for morning showers because that citrus scent wakes you up and gets you in a great mood for the rest of the day.

I absolutely love body oils and the Arbonne Rescue & Renew Detox Oil ($50) has gone to the top of my favorites list. It has a lovely scent with aromatic essential oils including orange, lavender, anise, and bergamot. It makes for a terrific massage oil but I use this in the mornings after a shower when my skin is still a little damp. Rescue & Renew Detox Oil has grape seed oil which is so good for skin…it keeps it nice and firm, and it also has sesame seed oil which helps reduce the appearance of cellulite.  

• Helps to promote the appearance of healthy, radiant skin
• Delivers hydration and helps skin to retain moisture
• Improves the appearance of dull, lackluster and tired-looking skin, helping skin look softer and smoother

The ingredients are truly top-notch.

• Grape seed and sesame oils moisturize to support collagen, helping to promote firmer-looking skin
• Argan oil — with antioxidants, vitamin E,and essential fatty acids — moisturizes and conditions skin

Rescue & Renew Detox Oil is a great alternative to body lotion because it’s not sticky or gooey. This is a wonderful gift to give or receive!

Rescue and Renew Detox Body Lotion

Rescue and Renew Detox Body Lotion

For those who love the basics, lotion is a great choice – skin can always use some rescuing with a little body lotion! The Rescue and Renew Detox Body Lotion ($36) features anise seed oil, which brightens dull skin, along with vitamin B5 for softening and smoothing. This is a shea butter-based lotion but it’s still light and fluffy, and it smells wonderful thanks to the orange, lavender, anise and bergamot essential oils.
• Promotes smooth-looking skin through moisturization
• Provides immediate hydration while also replenishing skin’s natural moisture barrier
• Formulated with pure, aromatic essential oils
• Alfalfa and chicory extracts help improve the appearance of skin tone and smoothness
• Shea butter, a body conditioner, helps moisturize dry skin
• Vitamin B5, a humectant, emollient and moisturizer, helps skin look soft and smooth

Even though it’s light and fluffy it still works wonders on my crazy dry feet. I slather a bunch on at night then cover my feet with cozy socks and in the morning I have heels and toes to be proud of.

Rescue and Renew Detox Soak

Rescue and Renew Detox Soak

A long, soaky bath is a sure way to rescue and renew after a tough day, especially if you fill your tub with Rescue and Renew Detox Soak ($38) These sea salt crystal dissolve quickly and soften the water as well as your skin. They get rid of surface impurities from skin leaving it nice and clean, plus bath it in wonderful ingredients like turmeric root which promotes radiance, as well as tons of wonderful botanical essential oils including grapefruit, tangerine, lavender, juniper berry, ginger, orange, and rosemary. 

Rescue and Renew Detox Gelee

Rescue and Renew Detox Gelee

So this is interesting….I was excited to try the Rescue and Renew Detox Gelee ($58), which comes in either a big tub or else in a box with 10 separate tubes. This is a great gift for the sports enthusiast or the loved one who is on their feet all day and night.  Smooth some of this cooling gel into sore, tired muscles for a terrific cool down and fantastic hydration. The sensation is absolute heaven!  Really interesting ingredients include green algae to smooth skin, juniper berry fruit oil to moisturize and create a moisture barrier keeping moisture in, and aromatic lavender and tangerine peel oils to just help you feel peaceful and happy.

• Moisturizes to promote skin elasticity,helping dimpled skin appear smooth and soft

Rescue and Renew Detox Gelee

Rescue and Renew Detox Gelee

A little more info on the ingredients – aromatic essential oils like orange, lavender, grapefruit, and tangerine help you relax, while shea butter and vitamin E gets rid of any dry patches. Caffeine moisturizes and helps reduce any bumpy areas, plus it’s an antioxidant and helps fight off free radicals. This is a great product that nourishes your body and your soul!

Rescue and Renew Detox Scrub

Another excellent way to detox, the Rescue and Renew Detox Scrub ($50) is a fabulous exfoliating scrub that is gentle but extremely effective. Skin is constantly renewing itself, which means you have dry, dead skin cells on the surface that need to be removed. If they aren’t, they build up and clog pores, leading to all kinds of skin drama that you don’t want. This lovely combo of coriander seed oil and avocado oil plus sea salt gently removes all the dead stuff and all the dirt and oil, leaving beautifully soft, radiant skin.

Rescue and Renew Detox Scrub

• Cleanses to combat the daily wear and tear of environmental exposure and pollution by effectively clearing pores of excess oil, dead skin, and buildup
• Helps improve the appearance of radiant, brightened skin
• Hydrates to promote the appearance of softer and smoother skin, leaving skin feeling touchably soft
• Formulated with pure, aromatic essential oils

• Vitamin E, with antioxidant properties, helps protect skin’s moisture barrier
• Avocado oil, with moisturizing properties, helps protect the skin’s natural moisture barrier from water loss
• Coriander seed oil, with antioxidants, soothes skin
• Passion fruit seed oil moisturizes skin

This is a really wonderful, gentle sea salt scrub that smells fabulous – like oranges and grapefruits – that works!

Shea Butter Hand Cream

Last but not least, no gift list is complete without a hand cream recommendation! I have hand cream everywhere – next to my bed, next to my computer, in my desk at work, in my car, in my purse…I just can’t get enough. And I can’t enough Arbonne Shea Butter Hand Cream ($20). It smells yummy, soft and buttery. It moisturizes beautifully and soaks in quickly, so I can get back to typing or whatever right away without leaving those tell-tale greasy spots. The ingredient list includes skin happy ingredients like shea butter, vitamin E, and coconut oil. It’s all good stuff and a wonderful hand cream that even the most picky person on your list will love.
