My favorite of the sets I have is the Endless Shine Trio. I love the 3 Lip Shines that come in this set. They are just the right size, just the right cool colors and just the right texture. While they are a tad sticky upon application, once they are on you won’t notice anything but great color and moisture for your lips.

The trio contains Blush, Wink, and Flutter each having a different color and flavor.

You can’t go wrong with Burt’s Bees ever but with all the gift sets they have for this holiday season you really can’t go wrong. Having one or two tucked away for that surprise guest that you need a gift for is perfect with a Burt’s Bees set. Right now at Target if you buy 2 Burt’s Bees items you’ll also get a free $5 reward card and who doesn’t love shopping at Target? And don’t forget the rule: one for you and one for me!  —  Marcia

Hitting a grand slam with Erborian, EB5, and ESPA

Baseball on the field. New white ball on green grass

The day I’m writing this the weather turned into spring – 75 degrees with blue skies and sun all day. The perfect day to watch baseball, whether it’s the Detroit Tigers or Little League games. I’ve got 4 products that are also perfect for this kind of day that you’ll want to add to your warm weather routine.

*sent for consideration

eb5 Age Spot Treatment, eb5 Foot Treatment, ESPA Lip Balm, Erborian Bamboo Creme Frappee

eb5 Age Spot Treatment, eb5 Foot Treatment, ESPA Lip Balm, Erborian Bamboo Creme Frappee

ERBORIAN BAMBOO CREME FRAPPEE

This is a very fluffy gel that has the most unique texture. It’s almost like a slush and it’s wonderfully soft. It melts into skin almost immediately in order to moisturize and rehydrate. Sitting outside, even with great sunscreen on, dehydrates your skin. Bamboo Creme Frappee adds that moisture back so you feel comfortable.

Erborian Bamboo Creme Frappee

Erborian Bamboo Creme Frappee

Korean skincare is having its moment and Erborian is one of the most highly rated lines. They’ve taken the fiber of bamboo stalks and blended it with bamboo sap to create a waterlock complex, this offers your skin extra moisture. The sap contains amino acid for hydration while the fibers contain proteins and lipids to help maintain your skin’s own moisture.

Erborian Bamboo Creme Frappee

This light green gel is a wonderful picker-upper after a day outside. While it’s meant to be used on your face, it can be used on your body for that refreshing feeling. Like all Korean skincare that I’ve tried, it is fragranced with a sweetness to it. This is sold exclusively at Sephora (and Sephora.com) for $43.

eb5 AGE SPOT TREATMENT and FOOT TREATMENT

eb5 is a new company introduced to me and I’m loving their products as well as their site which is women owned. It’s a pleasure to support a brand run by women that is also free of paraben, fragrance, and gluten, is allergy tested, cruelty free, non-GMO, and vegan. As great as those attributes are it’s the products themselves that will sell you.

eb5 Age Spot Treatment Skin-Discoloration Fade Cream

eb5 Age Spot Treatment Skin-Discoloration Fade Cream

eb5 Age Spot Treatment

eb5 Age Spot Treatment

eb5 Age Spot Treatment Skin-Discoloration Fade Cream is a product you can use day or night on any part of your body that you want to fade sunspots and discoloration. This contains 2% Hydroquinone to help lighten skin and fade the spots. It also contains Argan Oil for hydration and nourishment. 2% Hydroquinone is the highest percentage allowed without a prescription. It’s $24.99 for a big 6 oz tube at Target. I’ve been using this on my arms because I’m really tired of the spots and I’m hoping to see an improvement. Since hands show signs of aging quickly I’m fighting that with this fade cream. I’ve started using it on my upper lip since that always seems darker than the rest of my face and it’s working! I will be using this on the rest of my face once my derm appointments stop.

eb5 Foot Treatment

eb5 Foot Treatment

eb5 Foot Treatment

eb5 Foot Treatment

eb5 Foot Treatment is my foot savior now. This wonderful, slightly minty smelling, cream gently exfoliates, refreshes and soothes my aching feet. I no longer have cracked feet after using this during February and March. I like taking it into the shower with me and applying it while I’m drying off, I also like using it once I get into bed. It contains anti-fungal eucalyptus, tea tree oil, vitamins, and a blend of ingredients (sugar cane, chamomile, and sandalwood). All of those work together to improve the texture of your feet and rejuvenate the monsters they became during the winter. Let me tell you my secret about eb5 Foot Treatment – I use it on my hands too! Oh yes I do. Sometimes my hands become scaly and rough since I wash them constantly. When that happens I reach for this and I find that it works almost instantly. Later I’ll use a hand cream for more softening but eb5 comes first. The Foot Treatment is only $9.99 at Target and well worth every penny.

ESPA MANDARIN LIP BALM

ESPA Mandarin Lip Balm

ESPA Mandarin Lip Balm

For some of us lip balm is a necessity – that includes me. I’m always slathering on lip balm for my dry and aging lips. I love all varieties of it but especially a piece of luxury like the ESPA Mandarin Lip Balm provides ($28). This beautiful small compact contains a balm that is lightly fragranced with a variety of oils and butters (Citrus Nobilis (Mandarin Orange) Peel Oil, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil Expressed, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Irvingia Gabonensis Kernel Butter, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Peel Oil,  Salvia Sclarea (Clary) Oil, Anthemis Nobilis Flower Oil, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil).

The formula is 100% natural and delightful to have on my lips. I don’t love that it’s a in a pot but the balm makes up for that inconvenience.

Enriched with a 100% natural formulation, derived from the finest ingredients including Mandarin Essential oil for a sweet citrus flavour and aroma, Wild Mango Butter to condition, soften and smooth, Pomegranate to increase hydration and Rosemary to protect against environmental damage which can lead to premature ageing. Our Mandarin Lip Balm is presented in a beautiful compact complete with integral mirror.

These 4 products have been my Grand Slam delights and I’m glad I finally got around to sharing these with you. Summer, fall, winter, or spring they’ll help you get the ball moving and your skin and lips in their best shape yet. What a way to start the season! — Marcia

Treat your feet with Simply Saidah’s – review and giveaway

simply saidah logoIt’s hard to know about all the amazing brands that are available now that we can buy anything we want online. One of the brands you should know about is SIMPLY SAIDAH’S NATURAL SKIN CARE. I was sent their original product, Happy Hands & Feet Moisturizer, to try out and I have to tell you I have some happy hands and feet. Especially feet.

Sadiah, the owner, created this to help her daughter Lisa with her skin since as a gymnast she was having problems with rough and tough hands and feet. She used natural ingredients like unrefined shea butter along with essential oils and moisturizers until she had something that changed Lisa’s skin. Once she developed that, everyone wanted to try it, and now she has chosen to share this with us.

Simply Saidah's Happy Hands & Feet Moisturizer

Simply Saidah’s Happy Hands & Feet Moisturizer

Look at this simple list of ingredients – Ingredients: Natural Unrefined Raw Shea Butter, Organic Coconut oil, Avocado oil, Essential oil, Jojoba oil, Sweet Almond oil and Castor oil. There is nothing to be afraid of with this. It’s good for everyone in your family including people with diabetes who need to be especially careful with how they take care of their feet.

Simp[ly Saidah's

Simply Saidah’s

This very rich cream is what I’ve been using mostly on my feet. I like to keep it on my nightstand, warm a small amount on my palms and rub it in letting my dry skin soak up all the goodness inside. What’s left is for my hands with sometimes a little extra. Happy Hands & Feet Moisturizer ($12.95) is available in 4 fragrances plus unscented: Orange (my favorite), Lavender, Pettigrain, and Sweet Lavender.

It has the highest concentration of Vitamins A & E and has the best healing and beautifying effects on the skin.

Top Ten Tuesday – nails and manicures

top ten tuesdayTop Ten Tuesday this week is all about nails, manicures and hands. It will be fun to see how the group of Beauty Bloggers decides to interpret this. Will we see a lot of nail polishes? Will we see treatments? Will we see puppies and kittens? (Just checking to make sure you are paying attention. Are you?) Since I’m not a nail blogger I’m concentrating on the items that I need to take care of my hands and feet along with a little about nails. Here are 10+ favorites of mine. — Marcia

1. HAND PERFECTION FROM ELLEN SIROT *- shown is the complete set of products that Hand Perfection carries. I especially love the Cuticle Pen since it’s so portable and easy to use and her daytime hand cream. In the kit is also a night time hand cream that’s wonderful too but lately I’ve been forgetting to use it and my hands notice the difference.
2. ATOPALM MOISTURIZING HAND TREATMENT – this is a new favorite. I love that it’s not greasy. I went on a little shopping spree for Atopalm products and this one attracted me instantly. (I like variety in everything but men!)
3. ECO-ARMOUR ADVANCED BALANCED SERUM *- I know this doesn’t sound like a hand product but the description says it’s for face, neck and nails. I find the scent a little too “eco” for my face but it’s great for my hands during the day. I never thought of a serum for nails but the skin around my nails is always looking for moisture.
4. TWEEZERMAN FINGERNAIL CLIPPER – This is the tool that helps me get back to sleep at night when I’m tossing and turning. I’ve never used it on my fingernails but I do use it on my toenails all the time. If you aren’t plagued with insomnia then you don’t know the feeling of every little thing interrupting sleep. For me it’s often toenails that are too long or catch on the sheets. So there I am at 3 a.m. with my handy Tweezerman nail clipper.
5. BADGER BALM CUTICLE CARE – I haven’t written about Badger Balm in a long time but that doesn’t mean it’s not in my arsenal of tools. The Cuticle Care really helps moisturize your cuticles on both hands and feet. It’s only $5.99 and lasts for ages.
6. AMLACTIN FOOT CREAM – This was in one of the Blush Mystery Beauty Boxes that I subscribed to for a while. It’s probably the best item that I got in all the boxes I bought. I use this often at night and it’s really helped my feet from cracking and aching. It’s creamy so it takes time to sink in but I honestly sleep better when I use it.
7. ATOPALM MOISTURIZING FOOT AND HEAL BALM – Again, part of my Atopalm spree. I wanted to see if it was better than the AmLactin. I like them both but they are different. Atopalm has a more gel like texture and dries more quickly. It’s recommended to use it after your morning bath/shower which is what I do (if I remember). I want softer feet obviously.
8. DURI REJUVACOTE – When my nails aren’t in good condition, this is what I turn to. It’s meant to heal and cure cracked nails. It can be used over polish or as a base coat. My previous nail tech used to use this on my nails all the time to keep them healthy. Now I have my own bottle to use over polish.
9. and 10. CULT NAILS GET IT ON PERFECTING BASE COAT and WICKED FAST SPEED DRY TOP COAT – I’m so happy I bought these when I was buying some Cult Nail polishes. Both are excellent products that I use when I’m working on my nails myself. I often put on a top coat to prolong my manicure and Wicked Fast is so shiny and faster to dry than any other top coat I own. It doesn’t get goopy quickly either like Seche Vite.
Now that you know my “secret” weapons go visit my fellow bloggers to see what they’ve chosen. I can’t wait personally since I know that I’m going to find things that will help me keep my hands looking younger than they do now. – Marcia

Makeup Wars goes to the SPA


This is going to be an especially interesting Makeup Wars for me since I’ve never been to a spa. I’ve seen them in movies and on TV but I’ve never had the experience. Therefore I’m explaining what I like to do on days I consider “spa” days. Ones that relax me and help me do some beauty treatments I wouldn’t normally do. Some of these products were sent for review purposes* and each are used with love.

First off I’d start with a shower. My hot water doesn’t last especially long so this is going to be a two step shower. I’ll wash my hair with DermOrganic Argan Hydrating Shampoo* and follow that with DermOrganic Intense Hair Masque*. I love how DermOrganic’s products leave my hair so shiny and silky. The Hair Masque adds in much needed moisture. I’ll then put on my trusty polka-dot shower cap to let it all soak in.

DermOrganic line

Next is my body and I’d use Argan Magic’s Zesty Orange Body Scrub*. I’m amazed I still have some of this left but I have been savoring it. I love the smell and feel of this since it’s not gritty plus it has Argan Oil in it and my winter skin needs this added moisture.

Argan Magic Zesty Orange Body Scrub

I wish I still had the Argan Magic Bloomin’ Body Wash but that’s long gone. I’ll use a muslin cloth to get off all of the scrub and then I’ll hop out of the shower to work on my face and let my hot water refresh itself. I’m going to put on my BrokeDown Bath Wrap that was in my February PopSugar Must Have Box.

I’m going to do a facial mask next and the one I’m picking is from Somme Institute* and it’s called Boost. This is one of my favorite masks. It’s a self-warming mask and works wonders in under 10 minutes. It doesn’t harden and make my face tight so it’s great using prior to makeup.

Somme Institute BOOST

I’d also do an eye mask like the one by Biobliss*. A full review of this is coming up soon so you can see how great this is. I did it last week along with several other things already in this review to prepare to write. My eyes were thanking me for days.

After removal of the Biobliss I’m back in the shower and will finally shave my legs. I’m lucky that I don’t have to shave my legs often but when I do I almost always reach for Shave With Benefits*. This gentle shaving foam protects my legs from cuts and in addition acts as a body wash. It’s gentle enough for face and body as well as shaving. Off comes the shower cap and my hair gets totally rinsed out.

Three steps left that are all moisturizing. First I’m slathering up my body with Aveeno Positively Nourishing Energizing Body Lotion*. My favorite scent in this is Pomegranate+Grapefruit. I was sent my first one as an Aveeno Ambassador but have since bought this as it’s a scent I enjoy and that doesn’t overpower me.

Next I’m using Miracle Foot Repair. I share this with my husband actually since we both have very dry feet and find this to take care of the cracks and discomfort we often feel. For spa time I’m going to definitely put socks on so it will sink in.

For my final act I’ll use Hand Perfection’s Anti-Aging Hand Care System*, specifically the Nourishing Day Cream SPF 15. This is another upcoming review. Not only does this system have the Nourishing Day Cream but it also contains Rejuvenating Night Cream and a Nail and Cuticle Treatment Pen. It’s a wonderful system plus there’s no fragrance to the creams so I love it all the more.

Hand Perfection Day Cream

Hand Perfection Day Cream

Well for someone who said it would be difficult to write about this, I am my typically wordy self. All of these products, whether sent for a possible review or purchased myself, are keepers and belong in my Spa day and just about any day. Please use the links to read what the other Makeup Wars bloggers have done for their spa day. I’m eager to find out about new products and exactly what I missed. Any special spa items you love? — Marcia

Lush is making feet happy with Happy Feet

Lush Happy Feet

I believe that the best gift you can give yourself is a long, luxurious pedicure.  Lush has a wonderful set that makes it easy for you to gift yourself with some relaxation time, plus you get beautiful sandal-ready feet in the process.  Their latest set is called Happy Feet ($24.95).

all the goodies inside…

The kit comes wrapped in a super cute reusable Knot Wrap.  And inside are four great products that definitely make your feet happy.

the first peek inside

Here’s a first peek inside:  Geo Phyzz Bath Bomb, Volcano Foot Mask, Stepping Stone Foot Scrub, and Fair Trade Foot Lotion.

all the goodies inside opened

What a great collection of happiness for your feet!

Geo Phyzz Bath Bomb

The Geo Phyzz Bath Bomb is definitely big enough for several uses – I cut mine in half and then in half again.  This bomb is specifically made to relax sore muscles with Hawaiian Sea Salt and volcanic clay.  The scent is wonderful, it smells of pine and sandalwood and takes you right to the beach.

Volcano Foot Mask

You follow your relaxing Geo Phyzz foot bath with a fantastic Volcano Foot Mask.  Smooth on this mixture of kaolin, pumice, papaya, lemon juice, and tomato, and then wrap your feet in plastic (I use those plastic grocery bags, or else Saran Wrap).  Sit for ten minutes with your feet up, which helps your circulation, and read something naughty like Fifty Shades of Grey.  Then follow with this little guy:

Stepping Stone Foot Scrub

The Stepping Stone Foot Scrub, my vote for one of Lush’s cutest products ever.  Made of pumice, sea salt, lemon and lime, this little guy scrubs away the Volcanic Foot Mask and leaves your feet amazingly soft and smelling fantastic.  I find the best way to use it is to break off small pieces then scrub them onto your foot.

Fair Trade Foot Lotion

Then after you rinse and dry your feet, finish the experience by smoothing on some Fair Trade Foot Lotion.  It’s full of super moisturizing cocoa butter, plus both spearmint and peppermint oils to soothe achey tootsies.  It smells fantastic and is the perfect way to finish the job of making your feet extremely happy.  (Here’s a hint – use this lotion anywhere on your body that aches, like your shoulders or your back.)  And now that your feet are happy, it’s time to get to back to that book…

Mother’s Day gift ideas part one: Votre Vu

Here at the BIZ we try tons of products with upcoming holidays in mind, and one of my personal favorites (second only to my birthday, lol!) is Mother’s Day.  Being a mom is a 24 hour a day job, and even when the kids are grown and gone you don’t ever stop worrying or helping.  Show your appreciation and do something truly special for your mom or your mom-in-law this year.  Let the BIZ be your guide in finding a great gift that is off the beaten-to-death path of flowers or chocolate.

Votre Vu Tres Magni-Feet Set

I found two great Mother’s Day options by Votre Vu.  If your mom is a busy bee who is constantly on the go, help her get some R and R with the Sweep Her Off Her Feet package ($42).  Included are two awesome foot products, Très Magni-feet Exfoliant and  Très Magni-feet Crème. 

Exfoliant swatch

The Magni-Feet Exfoliant is made with tiny bamboo particles.  It can be used on wet or dry feet to scrub away callouses and rough areas.  It smells wonderful, like fresh peppermint.  An exfoliant scrub is really great for the feet to help improve circulation.

Magni-Feet Creme swatch

The Magni-Feet Creme is a beautiful, thick, hydrating cream that smells of verbena and chamomile.  It has shea butter to moisturize and menthol for a cooling sensation.  Nothing beats a foot rub after the exfoliant, and boy does it make your feet super soft.  A great idea is to give this set to your mom, then do the treatment for her.  Just rub her feet with the exofoliant and rinse in a big bowl of water.  Towel dry, then slather on the cream with a relaxing foot rub.  Put some super soft, thick socks on her and let her relax for the rest of the day.  Wonderful!!

Some people don’t like foot rubs, so for foot-phobics, try this great combination:  the Royal Treatment Gentle Pearls Face Scrub ($34) and the Self Preservation Self Tanning Milk for Face ($39).  It’s a great combo because the scrub perfectly preps the face for a beautiful, realistic looking faux tan.

Royal Treatment Gentle Pearls Scrub

 The Royal Treatment Gentle Pearls Face Scrub was a mystery to me at first.  It’s very watery, and when I used it on my damp face after cleansing I was confused, it didn’t seem to do anything.  Then I wised up and actually read the directions.  It needs to be applied to DRY clean skin.  You massage it in, the scrubby part is extremely gentle so even those with very sensitive skin will be happy.  Then, you emulsify with water, massage again, and rinse off.  It does a great job of gently exfoliating the skin and leaving it perfectly prepped for the Self Tanning Milk.

Self Tanning Milk

The Self Tanning Milk is a light lotion that has a fresh fragrance.  It spreads easily and soaks in quickly, and by the next morning your skin has the prettiest, most natural golden glow.  Those who want a kiss of color will love this once a week.  If you want more, use it two or three times per week and you will have a believable, streak-free faux tan that makes you look younger.  The two products together make a wonderful gift of radiant skin.

Do something different for your mom(s) this Mother’s Day…or let your family know you want something different for yourself!  Votre Vu is a great line with some wonderful, unique products, be sure to give them a look.  – Lisa
