Be a Savvy Traveler with me and win this giveaway

It doesn’t matter where you are going, you are going to want some SAVVY TRAVELERS with you. It can be as simple as going on a hike, to yoga or the gym, or as complicated as going on an overseas journey. Savvy Travelers is going to make your life a whole lot easier and your travels much more convenient.

Savvy Travelers


I don’t even know where to begin with the great selection of products they have. So far I’ve used these when I moved since I knew it was going to take me forever to unpack and organize my life. (I’m still not unpacked or organized but I’m closer!) I packed a small duffle with what I needed for two days as far as clothing, medication, and life necessities. Savvy Traveler was in that duffle and helped me get over the bump. Next it’s going on a true vacation that we are in the midst of planning.

Most important, what is Savvy Traveler? It’s a company that produces individually wrapped products for your life. Whether it’s deodorant, skincare, feminine hygiene, or camera/phone cleansing you’ll find it at Savvy Traveler. The packets are thin and small enough to drop into your jeans pocket, your handbag, or any place you can tuck things in. They are perfect for airplane travel since they aren’t liquids and you can easily take them with you plus they are biodegradable.

Savvy Travelers Getaway Kit

The Getaway Kit is a wonderful way to start and what I’d have packed except that I’m giving two kits away! This contains 12 packets in a great reusable plastic bag: 2 each of Klean Upz, Lift Offz, Take Offz, Speak Eazy, No Sweat, and Bottomz Up.

Savvy Travelers Getaway Kit

In other words:

Klean Upz is an antibacterial hand & body wipe. These are great for every sticky situation especially.

Lift Offz for nail polish removal. This has enough remover to do your entire manicure with just one wipe.

Speak Eazy: a tooth, lip, & mouth cleansing wipe. How great to have after you wake up on a plane and have that awful taste in your mouth and worry about your breath!

Take Offz is an all in one facial wipe that not only removes your makeup but is great for oil and dirt. Stick one in your pocket when you are out walking!

No Sweat is a terrific antiperspirant & deodorant wipe. These have an invisible formula and help freshen you easily. Believe me, these work!

Bottomz Up is a “booty bidet wipe”. This cleanses and refreshes. I’m sure many single ladies will appreciate these as well as the rest of us.

Another kit to consider is the Jet Set Kit which contains 4 of each No Sweat, In The Klear (lens, camera and screen wipes), Take Offz, and Speak Eazy.

Savvy Travelers Wipez Wallet

I love the Red Carpet Ready Kit. It’s a refillable wallet (Wipez Wallet Organizer) that contains 2 each of

  • Speak Eazy mouth cleansing and breath freshening wipes
  • Take Offz facial cleansing, moisturizing and makeup removing wipes
  • No Sweat antiperspirant and deodorant wipes
  • Klean Upz antibacterial hand and body wipes
  • In The Klear lens, screen and camera cleaning wipes
  • Bottomz Up booty bidet cleansing and moisturizing wipes

    Savvy Travelers Wipez Wallet with packets

You can even buy the wallet separately and fill it as you wish considering that Savvy Travelers sells a variety of 10 packs

Savvy Travelers even has a Wipeaholics monthly subscription that is customizable with 40 wipes each month for $20 a month. I’m planning on doing this for a few months in preparation for my 3 week winter trip. I want to be prepared. You can stop it when you want but the good part besides the great price is that I can pick what I want each time. I know I’m going with No Sweat, Kleen Upz, Speak Eazy, and Take Offz. Use and toss is the way for me to pack light and have room for my shopping habits!

Savvy Travelers Liquid Courage kit

Savvy Travelers has many other reasons to like them. You don’t need water with these since they don’t need to be washed off. It’s made in California using clean, renewable solar energy. They are cruelty free, FSC / Rainforest Alliance certified, EPA Green Power Partner approved, paraben free, and carry-on friendly & TSA compliant. — Marcia

Now for a giveaway! Savvy Travelers was nice enough to send three kits for Beauty Info Zone subscribers. I have 2 of the Getaway Kits and 1 Liquid Courage Kit (contains 2 each of Klean Upz, Bottoms Up, Klean Offz, and Lift Offz plus I’ll add 4 extras). This is open for US only and you must subscribe by email. If I can’t find your sub then bye bye Felicia!! The giveaway is open through 8/23/17 at 11:59 p.m. EDT.

Korres Pomegranate wipes and lip butter make fall that much better


What evokes Fall more than pomegranates? Winter fruits abound year round but only two make you think of autumn and all it consists of. Pomegranate and pumpkin pictures immediately take your mind and taste buds directly into the cool, brisk weather and holidays of fall.

KORRES Pomegranate Cleansing Wipes and Lip Butter

KORRES Pomegranate Cleansing Wipes and Lip Butter

KORRES knows we love the sweet and pungent taste and smell of pomegranate so they’ve created a variety of products containing this wonderful ingredient. I was sent two to test and that only makes me want to try others. The question is why pomegranate as an ingredient? Among other things it offers us antioxidant protection and that’s a good place to start.

KORRES Pomegranate Cleansing & Make-Up Removing Wipes

KORRES Pomegranate Cleansing & Make-Up Removing Wipes

KORRES Pomegranate Cleansing & Make-Up Removing Wipes are a wonderful way to get the antioxidant protection of pomegranate as well as the benefits of tightening the appearance of pores while it tones and refreshes your skin. There are 25 premoistened sheets in the package. This is specified for oily to combination skin yet it works for all skintypes. My skin is oily to dry and they work well for me. The fragrance isn’t artificial yet it’s noticeable. With some fragranced wipes I can’t use them at night but I have no problem with these.

The wipes also contain Vitamin E which helps their moisturizing property. My skin feels soft and well cleansed when using these. They are especially refreshing at the end of the day when I just want to wipe away all the makeup sitting on my skin before I sit down for TV time.

KORRES Pomegranate Lip Butter

KORRES Pomegranate Lip Butter

KORRES LIP BUTTER in Pomegranate is one of my favorites that I’ve used from Korres. This lip butter melts on my lips leaving a soft sheer coral tint. It’s perfect for bumming around the house or for doing my daily chores. I love the balm in this since it’s moisturizing and lasts well. “Korres Lip Butters are formulated with natural oils and extracts to soothe and condition lips. Shea butter and rice wax provide lasting hydration and softness.

KORRES changes their Lip Butters with different tastes. Right now both Wild Rose and Pomegranate are available so it’s best to get ahold of this before it changes again. The color is perfect for those of us who like a light look.

I’d love to find this $12 Lip Butter in my Christmas stocking. It’s going to suit every woman you know.

Other Pomegranate items exist too. One that fascinates me is the Pomegranate Soap ($10.50) which is a mild glycerin soap good for face and body. “Remove skin impurities effectively with this mild, glycerin-based soap. Pomegranate extract, with its antiseptic and toning properties, helps tighten the pores and tone the skin—making this the perfect cleansing solution for oily, congested skin.” This soap is said to be 95.9% natural.

You can’t go wrong with KORRES products since they are cruelty free and use natural ingredients. Most of their products can be used by vegetarians and vegans (the Pomegranate Lip Butter) and they don’t contain the no-nos like Petrolatum, Mineral Oil, Silicones, Parabens, Propylene Glycol, Ethanolamines, etc. Do yourself a favor and add KORRES Pomegranate to your shopping list. With Sephora’s VIB sale going on now you’ll get 20% which makes this even sweeter.  —  Marcia

Summer days and Burt’s Bees

Summer beauty essentials from Burt's Bees
Two beauty products that are summer essentials? SPF and cleansing wipes. Burt’s Bees recently sent me two great options to test that are easy on the pocketbook and great for the remainder of the season.

Burt's Bees Renewal Firming Day Lotion

Burt’s Bees Renewal Firming Day Lotion

Burt’s Bees Renewal Firming Day Lotion with SPF 30 ($20) is a nice, lightweight daytime moisturizer that does double duty as broad spectrum sun protection. It does have a fragrance, sort of a mix of apple and hibiscus, the two featured ingredients. This lotion firms skin, improves texture, and fights fine lines and wrinkles.

Burt’s Bees did clinical tests, and their results are impressive:

Immediately, skin appears smoother and hydrated
• After 4 weeks, 87% of women saw a reduction in the appearance of lines and wrinkles
• After 8 weeks, 96% of women saw a reduction in the appearance of lines and wrinkles and improved skin texture

Clinically shown to reduce look of deep wrinkles and help improve firmness

The hibiscus is an anti-aging ingredient, while the apple is for hydration. Add in the titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, and there is everything needed for a summer moisturizer.

Burt’s Bees Cucumber & Sage Facial Cleansing Wipes

Burt’s Bees Cucumber & Sage Facial Cleansing Wipes

I am kind of addicted to facial wipes…the older I get, the more germaphobic I get, and facial wipes don’t just remove makeup a the end of the day. They clean hands, wipe away dirt, and make short work of sweaty brows. I love Burt’s Bees Cucumber & Sage Facial Cleansing Wipes ($6), a fantastic and affordable drugstore find.

Removes dirt, oil and make-up without rinsing
• Cleanses and tones in one step
• Formulated with Cucumber and Sage Extracts
• FSC Certified cloth

The cucumber and sage make these wipes smell fresh and clean and the cucumber is especially soothing. They don’t leave a sticky residue so they are perfect for your car, your office, or your beach bag.

You can find Burt’s Bees at your local drugstore. Be sure to pick these up while you are enjoying the last hazy days of summer!  – Lisa
