Lip Monthly review and giveaway (gorgeousness included) @lipmonthly

lip monthly bag back

As a fan of subscription boxes I’ve always been interested in Lip Monthly and would read what each month brought to subscribers. When they contacted me about receiving a box and being able to use it for a giveaway if I wanted, you know my lips were saying yes and my mouth was watering.

With each month you’ll receive 4 to 5 full size lip products in a cute cosmetic bag. Typically a bag costs $12.95 a month but right now there’s a special to get your first bag (April) for only $6.45. Lip Monthly even ships internationally which few subscriptions will do.

What I received and what you could win is the January bag filled with 4 full size items from Hola Neon, Jelly Pong Pong, Lord & Berry, and Manna Kadar. The retail value of this bag is $67.95 which is pretty wonderful.

The only brand in here that is new to me is Hola Neon Velvet Liquid Lipstick ($17), Winter is Coming. Well hopefully winter is going but that doesn’t mean that this sophisticated shade is any less beautiful.

I haven’t swatched or used any of these lippies by the way but I did open them so you could see the beauty of them.

Hola Neon Velvet Liquid Lipstick, Winter is Coming, is described as a deep burgundy shade though from the wand it can most likely be worn lighter too. Winter is Coming, like all Hola Neon liquid lipsticks, is a long lasting matte.

JELLY PONG PONG LIPTENSITY LIPGLOSS brings you a hydrating gloss in the shade Necessity. I’m a little confused though because this is a beautiful dark pink shade unlike the light pink shown on their website so I’m sure this was mislabeled and is actually Curiosity ($19.95).

Here’s what Jelly Pong Pong says about the Liptensity Glosses: “A highly hydrating gloss, this thick formula enables you to have intense colours that shine and last at the same time. Infused with Sweet Almond Oil to help reduce chapped skin and keep lips succulently soft.” These are vegan, gluten free, and contain none of the no-nos. I’m sure this is a hero item for this bag.

Now for a real lipstick we have MANNA KADAR LIPLOCKED Priming Lipstick in Karma. If you love red lips you are going to be enamored with this cherry red lipstick.

I’d kill for lips that looked like that! The Liplocked formula is a semi-matte lipstick. It combines a primer and a lipstick in one. Containing Vitamin E it heals and soothes. This $21 Lipstick is stunning.

So far there’s a liquid lipstick, a hydrating lip gloss, and a semi-matte priming lipstick so the only thing missing is a lip crayon or liner. You’ll get that with Lord & Berry Lip Crayon in Vogue ($10). It’s labeled as a black red and since I didn’t swatch it I don’t know for sure. But it looks to me like it would line your lips beautifully with the other 3 products and of course you can use it as a lip crayon.

I think this may be a deluxe sample size since every Lord & Berry Crayon Lipstick I found online seems to be $19 or $20.

Which one of us can say that we wouldn’t love to have 4 new lip products every month? I know I can’t nor can I believe the price of this subscription. —  Marcia

LEGO® Education can change your child’s life (giveaway included)

star-wars-mosaic snapology

As a third and fourth grade educator for 30 years I am continuously fascinated with how much the field of education has changed. One such change that is vital today is teaching our kids with STEM (or STEAM). For those not up to date on STEM it means Science, Technology, Education, and Mathematics. (STEAM adds in the art category.)

Providing the opportunity for our children by combining the aspects of STEM creates eager learners who think more than we used to require them to. Rote isn’t a part of this type of education since it’s really about figuring out why and how things work rather than just memorization.STEM-logo

Did you know that there are LEGO® Education Centers that help your children put to use LEGOS® to stimulate the concept of STEM. Not only are there fun classes at SNAPOLOGY but it’s a great place for birthday parties and groups to have a blast while learning. It’s like they snuck in education without kids realizing it.snapology-robotics-mindstorm

According to Live Science: “STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. Rather than teach the four disciplines as separate and discrete subjects, STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications.” Try as we might as educators we don’t always get in enough science in our curriculums, especially in the early grades.

SNAPOLOGY isn’t just for young students since it’s available from pre-school through 12th grade.  The Committee on STEM Education (CoSTEM), comprised of 13 agencies—including all of the mission-science agencies and the Department of Education—are facilitating a cohesive national strategy, with new and repurposed funds, to increase the impact of federal investments in five areas: 1.) improving STEM instruction in preschool through 12th grade; 2.) increasing and sustaining public and youth engagement with STEM; 3.) improving the STEM experience for undergraduate students; 4.) better serving groups historically underrepresented in STEM fields; and 5.) designing graduate education for tomorrow’s STEM workforce.

We want to be advocates for the education of this next generation and STEM is a wonderful way to stimulate children’s thinking. There are a variety of resources available for STEM education with Snapology leading the way.

In cooperation with Nakturnal there’s a LEGO® giveaway that’s recommended for ages 6 and older. When I did a poll on what type of giveaways our readers liked to see many mentioned toys.

This 49 piece Snapology Mascot will add some educational excitement to a child’s life.

The most unusual skincare I’ve ever tried: Hydroskin. You can win a set in this giveaway

Hydroskin Starter/Travel Pack

Hydroskin Starter/Travel Pack

I don’t even know where to start with Hydroskin other than that it’s the most unusual skincare regime I’ve ever used. I couldn’t begin to count how many brands I’ve used since blogging and I’ve never encountered a brand like this before. When Hydroskin offered me a starter set I was intrigued and agreed to test. They made me promise to use it for a minimum of 30 days straight without any other brand. It’s hard for me to make such a promise but I did and I’m so enthusiastic about my experience.

Hydroskin products

Hydroskin products

There are 4 products to get you going with Hydroskin: cleanser, hydro mist, (HA) serum, C moisturizer. After washing up with their cleanser it will take you no more than 90 seconds to use all 3 of the remaining products. Actually you need to make sure you do it in 90 seconds or less to make the skincare the most effective.

Hydroskin is an Australian brand that ships to the US. They make their skincare in small batches to make sure they are their efficacy stays true. Plus their items use natural ingredients so they don’t want them waiting in a warehouse.

Hydroskin Cleanser

Hydroskin Cleanser

HYDROSKIN CLEANSER is a soap free gentle formula that uses unique ingredients to keep it anti-inflammatory.

Active Ingredients
Chamomile hydrosol is Chamomile Roman diffuse in distilled water. Chamomile Roman (Chamaemelum nobile) has been used for centuries to calm acne, rashes, eczema, wounds, dermatitis, and dry and itchy skin.

Coco Betaine (coconut) is derived from coconut oil and known as the “gentle cleanser”, it makes soft foam and washes away grime leaving no residue.

Polyglucose (sugar/glucose) is one of a new generation of cleansers derived from sugar starch. It is just as effective as sulphates, but extremely mild and non-toxic.

Olive Oil Esters (water-soluble olive oil) is water-soluble olive oil. It is very hydrating and is extremely proficient in avoiding dry and tense skin caused by over cleansing or exfoliating.

After using the cleanser (about 2 – 3 pumps will be enough for your face, neck and chest) rinse and pat your face dry.

Now let’s get the timer going!!hydroskin step book

HYDROSKIN HYDRO MIST contains vitamins B3 and B5. It’s a watery substance but it is the first step in making sure that you end up with an amazing complexion. It uses natural humectants to hydrate, brighten and lighten skin. It’s meant to soften wrinkles, reduce blotchiness, improve hydration and fade age spots. Now that’s a lot to swallow from a product that appears like water but it really is important to their system. The ingredients are wonderful and reading about them will make you want to use this for sure.

Hydroskin Hydro Mist

Hydroskin Hydro Mist

Apply 10 – 12 drops or sprays to your face, neck and chest and stop there. Do not wipe off. Leave it wet. After about 30 seconds you move on to the HA Serum. Now this is where I was lost at first. I didn’t use enough of the Hydro Mist though I moved on while it was wet. Mistake! This is the accelerator and you don’t want to misuse it. When I foolishly didn’t  use enough I didn’t care for the line but I soldiered on. My face felt dry and tight. I contacted Hydroskin only to find out it was me and not the skincare. Don’t skimp. I rarely sprayed it on preferring to splash it on with my hands. hydroskin step1

HYDROSKIN [HA] SERUM is my favorite product because of the Hyaluronic Acid used in this step. They combine miniHA™ and high molecular weight HA (Hyaluronic Acid) to produce rapid hydration and plumping of your skin. Apply 3 to 4 generous pumps of this over the wet Hydro Mist.

Hydroskin [HA] Serum

Hydroskin [HA] Serum

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) occurs naturally in the body and it is what attracts and binds water in the skin. HA has the ability to absorb up to 1000 times its weight in water. The result is a water-infused gel that feeds collagen and gives skin its plump firmness.

miniHA™ (Hyaluronic Acid) is extracted from plants using no corrosive chemicals. It has a very low molecular weight so that it can deeply nourish the skin right down to the collagen producing layer of the dermis. Meanwhile, high molecular weight HA sits on the surface, locking in and working with the miniHA™ to achieve optimal results.

hydroskin step2

Last in this process is Hydroskin C Moisturiser which contains a stable version of Vitamin C to make this moisturizer an “anti-aging powerhouse”.  Loaded with wonderful ingredients like Niacinamide, mini Hyaluronic Acid, 3 Natural Emollients: Meadowfoam Seed Oil + Avocado Oil + Sweet Almond Oil, and d-panthenol (vitamin B3), plus Organic Vegetable Glycerin is hygroscopic, that is, it absorbs moisture from the air and brings it to the skin. Use 3 to 4 pumps of this as your last step over your wet skin.

Hydroskin C Moisturizer

Hydroskin C Moisturizer

hydroskin step3

Your skin is going to feel wet for a short time and it may seem unusual to you as it did me. I’m used to richer creams and products that absorb quickly into my skin. But this singular line has its own process and cachet. The only thing I added to this routine was sunscreen in the morning and eye cream twice a day.

Hydroskin Starter/Travel Set

Hydroskin Starter/Travel Set

The sample/travel set costs $79.50 USD and will last you about 3 weeks if used in the right amounts. I finished the moisturizer before any of the other products so I’ve used the others with another moisturizer and still had pretty good results. I’ve felt that my skin has looked particularly nice and I’m not noticing sagginess, as much discoloration or redness, nor is my skin craving hydration even in the winter winds. I’ve actually gotten compliments on my appearance which is a rare thing. While this may break the paradigm I’ve become accustomed to, I grew to love the results.

Hydroskin is a skincare regimen that works for all skin types. It’s non-fragranced (insert heart here), cruelty-free, made from natural ingredients, and it works. After this experience I’d be delighted to try their Kakadu Plum Ultimate Vitamin C Serum as well as their Organic Manuka Honey Mask. —  Marcia

GIVEAWAY TIME: It is Beauty Info Zone’s 7th Blog Anniversary and we’re thrilled that Hydroskin is celebrating it with us and kicking off our Anniversary Giveaways. One US subscriber is going to be thrilled to win this unusual, unique, unbelievable set of skincare. The giveaway is open through 4/3/17 at 11:59 p.m. EDT.
