For products though Love Beauty & Planet is offering a giveaway of 3 their great items for one US Beauty Info Zone subscriber. We are so happy that they’ve done this for you. Here are the three items – rejoice!

Love Beauty & Planet Coconut Oil & Ylang Ylang Hope and Repair 3 in 1 Benefit Oil

This is Lisa’s pick for one of you to win since she is crazy about the fragrance and the benefits: “I tested  the Love Beauty & Planet Coconut Oil & Ylang Ylang Hope and Repair 3 in 1 Benefit Oil ($8.49). This coconut oil based treatment can be used before or after shampooing. If used beforehand you section hair and apply as a prewash hydrating treatment. It’s great for very dry, damaged hair – after letting it soak in, just wash and condition like normal. Hair feels amazing afterward! You can use the Coconut Oil & Ylang Ylang Hope and Repair 3 in 1 Benefit Oil as a prewash treatment once a week. Or, you can use it daily on dry hair to smooth and tame fly aways.  Just put one or two drops in your palms and smooth through hair.  It works wonders. The scent is fabulous too – it smells like jasmine and spicy fruit.”

Love Beauty & Planet Radical Refresher Body Wash

Marcia’s pick for you is Love Beauty & Planet Radical Refresher Body Wash. ($6.99): “The wash has a light gel texture and suds up very nicely. If this isn’t your type of scent there are 6 scents in total each with different names like Relaxing Rain for lavender, Daily Detox for tea tree, Tropical Hydration for coconut and ylang ylang. There’s one for everyone! I like this after the scrub since the fragrance of Radical Refresher leaves me feeling refreshed and has a light enough aroma for me.”

Here’s the fun part if the brand’s PR has it in stock you’ll get your choice of scent. There are 6 scents and you’ll need to go to their website to choice your favorite.

To round out this terrific package the third item in the prize is Love Beauty and Planet® Peace and Glow Creamy Body Scrub The scent Murumuru Butter & Rose when used in this scrub is a sugary rose from ethically sourced rose from Bulgaria. It’s a very soft scrub and not meant to be harsh. It’s gentle yet gets rid of the dry skin on your body leaving you smoother than ever.

Love Beauty & Planet Sugar & Rose Scrub

Check out #SmallActsOfLove on their website as well as at Target, Amazon and Walmart.

GIVEAWAY INFORMATION: One US Beauty Info Zone subscriber will win these 3 Love Beauty & Planet products for their own. The Body Wash is the only one that you can chose a fragrance you’d like. If you don’t comment then you can’t win – happens over and over. This is open through Thursday 5/17/18 at 11:59 pm EDT. Prize will be sent by the company’s representative. Lots of luck!

Looking younger with Pevonia De-Aging Papaya Pineapple Saltmousse and Body Balm!

Looking younger with Pevonia De-Aging Papaya Pineapple body products!

samples affiliate links

The older I get, the more I realize how important it is to take care of my skin. Not just on my face – skin all over my body needs love, especially skin that is regularly exposed to the sun, like arms, legs, neck, and decolletage. There’s nothing worse than thinking you’re rocking a super cute sleeveless dress, then glancing in a mirror and seeing crepey arms and legs. Ugh.

Pevonia to the rescue! Oh how I adore this line. It is beautiful, high-end line that I typically encounter in upscale department stores and exclusive spas. Pevonia hasn’t disappointed me yet and the De-Aging Papaya Pineapple duo really has me excited.

Pevonia De-Aging Saltmousse-Papaya-Pineapple

Pevonia De-Aging Saltmousse-Papaya-Pineapple

The De-Aging experience starts with the Pevonia De-Aging Saltmousse-Papaya-Pineapple ($41). Pevonia says,”Gently exfoliate rough, uneven  skin texture as well as balance, moisturize, hydrate and nourish your body with this foaming salt scrub.  Fluffy lather removes impurities and toxins by gently polishing your skin.  Primary Benefits:  Cleanse away impurities and gently exfoliate rough, uneven skin texture as well as balance, moisturize, hydrate and nourish the body with this sulfate-free, foaming salt scrub.  Who Needs It:  For those who desire an anti-aging tropical body scrub to smooth and brighten.”

Pevonia De-Aging Saltmousse-Papaya-Pineapple

The best way I can describe the De-Aging Saltmousse-Papaya-Pineapple is ripe and juicy, like a grilled pineapple. This is the most luscious salt scrub I have ever encountered. It foams up and scrubs off dead skin, exfoliating beautifully while leaving skin super hydrated. The container is hefty, very substantial in an impressive way. I feel special and pampered just picking up the jar! The whole experience is total luxury, especially when it’s followed by the sister product:

Pevonia De-Aging Body Balm- Papaya-Pineapple

Pevonia De-Aging Body Balm- Papaya-Pineapple

The Pevonia De-Aging Body Balm- Papaya-Pineapple ($85.50). So I am sure you noticed the price on this, right? I know, I know…that is a LOT of money for 5 ounces of body balm. I agree. But I am here to tell you, if it fits into your budget, this is a splurge that is worth it. Pevonia says, “Use to  smooth body crepiness, firm skin tone and texture, nourish, replenish and repair!  Your skin is wonderfully replenished and visibly repaired.  Primary Benefits:  Smooth lines and wrinkles, firm skin tone and texture, nourish, replenish and repair with this tropical, anti-aging body moisturizer.  Who Needs It:  For those who have lines and wrinkles, uneven texture, uneven tone and loose/sagging skin on their body as well as those who want to prevent signs of aging.

Pevonia De-Aging Body Balm- Papaya-Pineapple

The balm is light and refreshing, yet delivers a hefty hydration punch. You don’t need much so that 5 ounces will last a long time, which is a great way to justify the cost! The body balm instantly eliminates any crepey skin and it keeps skin soft and supple for hours. The scent is truly divine…juicy, fruity, and delectable, not too sweet or overpowering yet still noticeable. Pevonia De-Aging Body Balm- Papaya-Pineapple really is an extraordinary body balm that is particularly amazing following the De-Aging Saltmousse-Papaya-Pineapple.

Pevonia De-Aging Saltmousse-Papaya-Pineapple

If you need any other reasons to invest in some Pevonia, here are just a few more:
Natural & Phyto-organic extracts, Non-GMO, Organic essential oils, alcohol-free, paraben-free, no artificial colors, gluten-free, no formaldehyde, lanolin-free, mineral oil-free, paba-free, urea-free, no Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, cruelty-free, chirally-correct, eco-packaging, latest proven-effective actives combined with advanced manufacturing technologies, triphase microemulsified formulations, homogenized formulations.
Pevonia is a fantastic line and I am truly impressed with the Pevonia De-Aging Body Balm- Papaya-Pineapple and De-Aging Saltmousse-Papaya-Pineapple  – I hope you try them and love them as much as I do!  – Lisa

Smells so good! Nubian Heritage Coconut and Papaya body products

samples

Nubian Heritage Coconut and Papaya body products

Smelling fantastic from head to toe thanks to products that are environmentally responsible, animal-friendly, and free of all the bad stuff like synthetics and sulfates is as easy as taking a quick trip to Whole Foods or the Vitamin Shoppe (or even just surfing the web). Your quick trip will bring you to this amazing line, Nubian Heritage. I was initially intrigued because they have a full line of Coconut & Papaya products and when it comes to coconut…well, I’m kind of easy. Actually, Nubian Heritage has 15 different collections, from Abyssinian Oil & Chia Seed to Ivorian Cocoa & Hazelnut. Their body products take care of you from head to toe, but before I tell you about those here’s a little more background on the company.

Nubian Heritage first started in Harlem 25 years ago. Richelieu Dennis and Nyema Tubman were college roommates and they wanted to make products using traditional African recipes with fair trade, organic ingredients. In fact, “they were inspired by the legacy of ancient Nubia, which was once a center of cultural trade – a place where goods, ideas, and customs from across Africa, Asia, the Mediterranean and the Middle East were exchanged and spread across the world. The street vendors brought together global healing practices, cultural wisdom and indigenous ingredients to create modern wellness solutions that were highly sought after.”

The product range available at Nubian Heritage is incredible and I am just blown away at the quality of every product I tested. Everything is wonderful, and the prices are fabulously affordable.

Nubian Heritage Coconut & Papaya Body Lotion

Nubian Heritage Coconut & Papaya Body Lotion

Coconut & Papaya Body Lotion ($13): Wow, this smells sooo good!! The Body Lotion is a light, creamy lotion packed full of great ingredients:  coconut oil, papaya extract, shea butter, aloe vera, and vitamin E. The papaya extract has papain enzymes, which act as a gentle exfoliator, making skin even smoother and softer. Skin is super hydrated and feels fabulous. The bottle is big and $13 is a great price – a little goes a long way so it’s a nice value, especially for an environmentally conscious company.

Nubian Heritage Coconut & Papaya Body Wash

Coconut & Papaya Body Wash ($13): The Body Wash smells just as delicious as the Body Lotion and I love showering up with it. It’s a very gentle cleanser but I definitely feel clean afterward, even after a grueling, sweaty workout. Ingredients include lots of hydration for skin, including coconut oil, shea butter, aloe vera, and papaya.

Nubian Heritage Coconut & Papaya Deodorant

Nubian Heritage Coconut & Papaya Deodorant

Coconut & Papaya 24 Hour Deodorant ($9):  This is a glycerin/silica/cornstarch based deodorant that stands out for me because it smells so darn good. I am really crazy about this scent! The fact that it also has coconut oil and doesn’t flake or give underarms a white cast is a plus, too.

Nubian Heritage Coconut & Papaya Hand Cream

Nubian Heritage Coconut & Papaya Hand Cream

Coconut & Papaya Hand Cream ($10): The Hand Cream is much thicker than the Body Lotion, so thick it takes some effort to squeeze it out of the tube. The scent, again, is to die for…juicy papaya and deep, rich coconut. This is what you want to slather on dry elbows, scaly knees, and frayed cuticles.

Nubian Heritage Coconut & Papaya Hand & Body Scrub

Nubian Heritage Coconut & Papaya Hand & Body Scrub

Coconut & Papaya Body Cleansing Smoothie (formerly Hand & Body Scrub – $12): Nubian Heritage recently went through some repackaging and I believe they changed the name of this skin exfoliator. Ingredients include coconut oil, papaya, organic shea butter, and vanilla extract. You can use this on your body in the shower to soften rough areas or for an all-over exfoliation. I like to leave it right by the sink and use it on my hands and cuticles. My hands feel totally incredible afterward.

Nubian Heritage Coconut & Papaya Bath Bombs

Nubian Heritage Coconut & Papaya Bath Bombs

Nubian Heritage Coconut & Papaya Bath Bombs

Coconut & Papaya Bath Bombs ($15): These effervescent bath bombs really are the bomb! They are made with coconut oil and papaya extract, so like the other products in this line they subtly exfoliate and create glowy skin while also hydrating like crazy. Why not get that lovely skin treatment while relaxing in warm bath water? Aaahhhh….sounds great to me!!

Nubian Heritage Coconut & Papaya Bar Soap

Nubian Heritage Coconut & Papaya Bar Soap

Coconut & Papaya Bar Soap ($5)  This lovely big bar of soap is just wonderful – it has that great coconut and papaya scent, and the soap is full of vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids. It’s exactly what you want next to the sink so you can relax for that one moment when washing your hands, transported to somewhere tropical and fabulous.

Nubian Heritage has literally hundreds of culturally authentic natural products that are free of sulfates, parabens, phthalates, paraffin, gluten, propylene glycol, DEA, silicones, mineral oil, petroleum, synthetic fragrance and artificial color, and never tested on animals.  You can find them online at NubianHeritage.com or at the Vitamin Shoppe and Whole Foods and other fine retailers.  – Lisa

SpaRitual Passionfruit Agave Vegan Exfoliating Cleansing Oil

SpaRitual Passionfruit Agave Exfoliating Body Oil

SpaRitual Passionfruit Agave Exfoliating Body Oil

sample

I’ve tried many scrubs in my time. Dense scrubs, salt scrubs, sugar scrubs but never a vegan exfoliating cleansing oil. Yes, you read that right- an exfoliating oil AND it comes in a tube not a jar so there is no mixing for you to do. Once you squeeze SpaRitual  Passionfruit Agave Exfoliating Body Oil out, you see a thickish base with finely ground coconut shells suspended in the formula. Brilliant! The thick oil changes to a milky emulation once you apply it onto wet skin.

SpaRitual Passionfruit Agave Exfoliating Body Oil

SpaRitual Passionfruit Agave Exfoliating Body Oil

This limited edition is lightly scented with passionfruit which adds a delicate aroma to your bathing experience. More importantly the scrub is gentle and leaves your skin soft and smooth.  And it rinses easily down the drain leaving no mess behind.

SpaRitual Passionfruit Agave Exfoliating Body Oil

SpaRitual Passionfruit Agave Exfoliating Body Oil

‘The SpaRitual Passionfruit Agave Exfoliating Cleansing Oil scrub is 74% organic and 99% nature derived. It is formulated with finely ground coconut shells to gently exfoliate and buff away dead skin. Scented with a 100% plant derived passionfruit aromatic blend, blue agave extract soothes and nourishes the skin, certified organic goji berry is rich in amino acids to help plump skin and certified organic pomegranate provides antioxidants leaving skin with a healthy glow.

SpaRitual Passionfruit Agave Exfoliating Body Oil

The SPARITUAL story is  told this way “WE are here to remind you (and us too) of the importance of slowing down every so often so you can reset, recharge, rebalance and recalibrate and get back out there again to make it happen. WE are Activists for Self-Care, because we know that we must care for our self in deep and meaningful ways in order to best care for others and life itself.”

I was lucky enough to be sent this delicious product and I’m anxious to explore their other “states of slow beauty” so I can experience the four R’s. Really!  –  Phyllis

FarmHouse Fresh This Bunny Loves You wins my Makeup Wars battle

This week Makeup Wars chose the topic of favorite scrubs and exfoliators. I thought and thought about what to share and had several choices but FarmHouse Fresh won my heart with THIS BUNNY LOVES YOU Soft Skin Gift Set. When this set was sent everything else flew from my mind and I couldn’t think of anything else that I wanted to share besides this.

FarmHouse Fresh This Bunny Loves You Gift Set

FarmHouse Fresh This Bunny Loves You Gift Set

If you’ve read Beauty Info Zone then you know that FarmHouse Fresh is the brand that changed my mind about fragranced products. Once Lisa talked me into trying their Watermelon Basil Body Scrub I was sold. I’m pretty sure she’s sorry about that because we now have to fight over who is the one who can keep this as part of their bath and body routine.

This Bunny Loves You is a gift set for you or for someone you do love. It would make a great Mother’s Day gift as well. It contains 2 full size products ($36). Inside you’ll find Sweet Cream Fine Body Scrub and Fluffy Bunny Shea Butter Hand Cream plus on the outside you’ll find a great wooden spoon meant to mix the scrub.

FarmHouse Fresh This Bunny Loves You Gift Set

It’s the Sweet Cream body scrub that is the most loved product in this box for me. While FarmHouse Fresh has many products in this fragrance this is the first time I’ve had the pleasure to use it.

FarmHouse Fresh Sweet Cream Fine Body Scrub

FarmHouse Fresh Sweet Cream Fine Body Scrub

Let’s talk about the wonderful scent. It’s reminds me of sugar and cream and everything nice. It’s a sweet fragrance even though it’s a sea salt exfoliator. FarmHouse Fresh scrubs separate in the jar so you need to mix them up which is where the great wooden spoon comes in.

Mix up the fine grain fresh sea salt and rice bran oil and you’re on your way to a lightweight, non-greasy soft feeling. I love this all over my body and it leaves me with a fragrance that lasts throughout the day. You can even use this at your sink to exfoliate your hands and/or feet to keep them soft and smooth.fhf this bunny loves you box info

While Fluffy Bunny Shea Butter Hand Cream doesn’t officially fit in this week’s Makeup Wars it’s worth knowing about. FHF makes several hand creams and Fluffy Bunny fits in perfectly for spring. The scent is described as a Lavender-Mint Julep (Kentucky Derby anyone??).

FarrmHouse Fresh Fluffy Bunny Hand Cream

FarrmHouse Fresh Fluffy Bunny Hand Cream

FarmHouse Fresh Hand Creams are loaded with supple shea and cocoa butter and Vitamin E packed jojoba and soybean oils along with Aloe to help with skin irritation. They are created to help with even super dry skin yet they aren’t greasy. Within minutes of massaging this in you can go about your business.

FarrmHouse Fresh Fluffy Bunny Hand Cream

FarrmHouse Fresh Fluffy Bunny Hand Cream

FarrmHouse Fresh Fluffy Bunny Hand Cream is 96% natural and like all their products are paraben free, sulfate free, and of course cruelty free.

While you can buy these products separately if you are in need of a gift then This Bunny Loves You will win you extra points! If you are like me and love a body scrub then Sweet Cream is going to thrill your body and senses. Can you see why I couldn’t get this out of my mind for Makeup Wars?  —  Marcia

Any season is perfect for FarmHouse Fresh Butter Rum Body Scrub

Yo ho ho and a jar of FHF Butter Rum

Farmhouse Fresh Butter Rum Scrub

FarmHouse Fresh Butter Rum Scrub

Who doesn’t love Farmhouse Fresh? Only those who haven’t tried the line. So what are you waiting for? If you love body scrubs and the delicious scent of butterscotch, you will adore FarmHouse Fresh Butter Rum body scrub made with premium rum liquor. As the jar says:  This buttery body exfoliator combines sugar and premium aged rum with vitamin E and a smooth butterscotch scent for a scrumptious cleansing experience that stimulates your skin’s renewal-leaving you soft and touchable. Apply in circular motions to wet skin while in the shower or bath.
Farmhouse Fresh Butter Rum Scrub

Farmhouse Fresh Butter Rum Scrub

FarmHouse Fresh says : Each product is crafted around delicious food and drinks, using up to 99.6% natural and naturally derived ingredients, and chock full of fruits, vegetables, milks, and more from U.S. farms, including our own. Butter Rum Scrub is 95% natural, and like all FarmHouse Fresh products, is Paraben & Sulfate free!  The scrub contains Sucrose, Soybean Oil, Sodium chloride, rum, laureth 4, peg-40, castor oil, rice bran oil, parfum, and tocopherol.

Farmhouse Fresh Butter Rum Scrub

Farmhouse Fresh Butter Rum Scrub

The scrub is a little different from others I’ve tried in that the sugar is on the bottom of the jar while the oil is on the top. You can use your hand or a spoon to blend the contents together. You may wind up, as I did, with quite a bit of oil left over when the sugar part is used up. Unless of course, you do a better job of mixing than I did, which is entirely possible. But I don’t care. The scent is absolutely delicious and the scrub makes my skin feel soft and smooth. It also disappears easily down the drain. I hope they make other products using this scent as it does linger a bit after you wash it off. And it makes your bathroom smell delicious.

Changing the World with Skinny & Co. Coconut Oil

Skinny and CoWhen I look at new brands to try, one ingredient that always captures my attention is coconut oil. I honestly think it’s the best overall skin care ingredient out there. It heals from the inside out. No one does coconut oil like the skin care line Skinny & Co. They have a unique system called the Nutralock System that keeps raw nutrients intact, so the coconut oil is more fully absorbed by the body inside and out.

samples

Skinny & Co.Skinny and Co. says, “Skinny is the only coconut oil on the market that is wild harvested, hand pressed, small batched, never heated, 100% raw, 100% virgin, and 100% without chemicals and solvents. You can actually smell, feel, taste and see the difference. At Skinny we believe in the power of a tight knit community centered on only the highest quality, chemical free products made with a higher purpose at heart. Each one of our nurturing products contains 5 edible ingredients or less and is made with our patented coconut oil process that ensures nutrients stay intact which enhances effectiveness both inside and out.

Skinny & Co.I have been testing five 2 oz. samples of their products, and all I can say is yum and wow!  This really is coconut oil at its finest.

First up is the pure Coconut Oil. This is 100% pure, raw coconut oil. You can use this for so many things: as a face and skin moisturizer, a hair conditioner or in food – it takes the place of butter or oil and tastes fantastic in coffee and smoothies.

  • The only raw 100% alkaline coconut oil in the world
  • Wild-Harvested, not plantation grown
  • Handpicked
  • No chemicals, fillers, or preservatives
  • Cold-Processed; Not Just Cold Pressed
  • Skinny and Co. is a brand that owns and manufactures our coconut oil (they do not buy from contract manufacturers). They are Tree To Table

Another very interesting product is the Skinny & Co. Oil Pulling Mouth Wash. I have tried oil pulling before but boy, it tastes so weird I just couldn’t stick with it. This, however, is oil pulling mouth wash and the addition of organic peppermint essential oil makes all the difference. If you are new to oil pulling, here is how Skinny & Co. describe it:  Oil Pulling is an ancient practice that is receiving recent interest due to it becoming an adjunct in people’s oral hygiene routine. Coconut oil has been found to be an ideal choice due to the lauric acid binding with the bacteria in the mouth during the “pulling” process. We recommend starting pulling for five minutes, then increase the time gradually. Move the oil around your mouth as if it were mouthwash, but do not gargle or swallow.

I am loving it and I definitely plan to purchase a full size bottle. It’s totally safe for teeth and all dental work and with only two ingredients – the peppermint essential oil and the 100% Raw Coconut Oil, it’s a fantastic organic, natural find.

Skinny & Co. Body Butter

The Whipped Body Butter is a true coconut oil delight. This has a light, airy texture and it soothes and hydrates skin like crazy. I’ve used it as a body moisturizer, hair conditioner, and shaving cream with terrific results. I also tried it as a pre-treatment for my hair, applying it to dry hair and letting it sit for a half hour before showering and washing my hair as usual. It gave me incredibly soft floaty hair…amazing! I am sure it would be fantastic for expecting moms to help prevent stretch marks. The ingredients include 100% Raw Coconut Oil, Organic Almond Oil to promote collagen renewal, Vitamin E to protect skin from free radicals, and blend of essential oils. Protects against free radical damage

Skinny & Co. Sugar Scrub

I’m not usually a big fan of body scrubs but the Exfoliating Vanilla Sugar Body Scrub is excellent. The scrub is a combination of coconut sugar, coconut oil, and vanilla. The scrub is gentle but effective, exfoliating skin while also hydrating at the same time. It’s a perfect way to prep skin for self tanner and it also works as a terrific lip scrub. It smells divine as well…like a combination of a bonfire and vanilla.

Skinny & Co. Facial Oil

Skinny & Co. Facial Oil

Skinny & Co. Facial Oil

The last product I tested is the Calming Lavendar and Coconut Facial Oil. I love multi-taskers, and this does triple duty as a makeup remover, cleanser and moisturizer all in one. This is one of Skinny and Co.’s top sellers and I can see why. The coconut oil base gives it a perfect pH balance, and it soothes skin while cleansing it. You apply this to a dry face and wipe it off with a warm damp washcloth. I also use it with my Luna and love it. You can apply a little extra after cleansing for more hydration, and it also works as an overnight mask. The ingredients include 100% Raw Coconut Oil, Lavender, Roman Chamomile, and Holy Basil. Now, I have to admit, with those ingredients I was hesitant to use this on my eyes…but it dissolved even waterproof mascara with no problem! No stinging at all. Great stuff!!

I am very impressed with Skinny and Co.’s coconut oil-based products.  They certainly changed my world, and I think they will change yours too. You can find them online at skinnyandcompany.com.  – Lisa
