Two months of Boxycharm fun

During the winter holidays it was just too hard to fit in the fun items I’d been buying. Now that it’s calmed down I want to share two months worth of BOXYCHARM. It’s my favorite subscription and I always get my $21 worth. The main reason that I like to review subscriptions is so that you can get an idea of which one you’d want to buy. These two (December 2016 and January 2017) are prime examples of what Boxycharm offers. Be sure to read this whole review for a surprise….

DECEMBER BOX: “MAKEUP ON POINTE”

Boxycharm from December 2016

December 2016 Boxycharm contents

December 2016 Boxycharm contents

There were 3 versions of the December Boxycharm, below is what I received:

  • OFRA Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Napa Valley – $19.90
  • Pure Cosmetics Buff Collection Palette – $50
  • Butter London Nail Polish  in Ruby Murray – $15
  • The Original Mini MakeUp Eraser – $12
  • IBY Beauty Lip Liner in Rosebud –  $14
  • $111 total value

PURE COSMETICS BUFF COLLECTION PALETTE

This reminds me so much of Urban Decay’s Rose Gold palette and the rose gold one from Ulta. Since I have both of those already I’m debating whether to keep this or use it for an anniversary giveaway. It gets great reviews and the colors are beautiful.

BUTTER LONDON NAIL LACQUER in RUBY MURRAY

What’s not to love about butter LONDON? Fabulous brand and I haven’t had any new polishes from them in a long time. butter LONDON describes this as a deep berry cream.

MAKE UP ERASER MINI

I have the full size of this so I’m thrilled to have the mini especially for travel. The two sides are different textures and feel so good. Since it’s recommended to wash in the machine after each use it’s nice to have a second one. It does a great job especially if I have light makeup on.

OFRA LONG LASTING LIQUID LIPSTICK in NAPA VALLEY  & IBY BEAUTY LIP LINE in ROSEBUD

Ofra Long Lasting Lip in Napa Valley and IBY Beauty Rosebud Lipliner

Ofra Long Lasting Lip in Napa Valley and IBY Beauty Rosebud Lipliner

I haven’t used either of these mainly because the surprise is a giveaway at the end of this post. These aren’t my colors but my experience with both brands has been excellent. The look of the IBY Lipliner reminds me of Starlooks liners.

OFRA COSMETICS LONG WEAR LIQUID LIPSTICK in NAPA VALLEY

OFRA Cosmetics Napa Valley Long Wear Liquid Lipstick

OFRA Cosmetics Napa Valley Long Wear Liquid Lipstick

This is a beautiful purple that probably applies as a dark berry shade. Here’s what OFRA has to say about these lipsticks: “Our formula is a matte color formula but if you want to add some shine to your liquid lipstick try our revolutionary Lipgloss Stick. All shades contain antioxidants and Vitamin E while the formula provides a lightweight layer of lasting color to make you look stunning all day. Color will last in a perfect condition up to five hours without eating or drinking. For best results do not eat or drink for 15 minutes after applying.Please note that this is not a lip stain and does not dry completely but remains on your lips for hours!”

JANUARY BOXYCHARM: “AND THE CHARM AWARD GOES TO”

Boxycharm for January 2017

Boxycharm for January 2017

  • Vintage Cosmetics Illuminating Face Highlighter Duo Set –  $35
  • So Susan Fan Brush  –  $18.95
  • Pur Cosmetics Mineral Glow Bronzer  – $25
  • English Laundry Pour Femme Deluxe Roller Ball –  $25
  • Gorge Amazing Konjac Sponge  –  $18
  • $122 total value

VINTAGE COSMETICS ILLUMINATING FACE HIGHLIGHTER SET  – in Rose Quartz/Chocolate Diamond 

VINTAGE COSMETICS ILLUMINATING FACE HIGHLIGHTER SET - in Rose Quartz/Chocolate Diamond

VINTAGE COSMETICS ILLUMINATING FACE HIGHLIGHTER SET – in Rose Quartz/Chocolate Diamond

Love this! I’m so happy this is in my possession now. I’ve heard some great things about Vintage Cosmetics and received another product from them in an earlier box but it came broken. This highlighting set is perfection. Not too dark, not too light.

VINTAGE COSMETICS ILLUMINATING FACE HIGHLIGHTER SET - in Rose Quartz/Chocolate Diamond plus So Susan Fan Brush

VINTAGE COSMETICS ILLUMINATING FACE HIGHLIGHTER SET – in Rose Quartz/Chocolate Diamond plus So Susan Fan Brush

This has shimmer so I will only be using this at night but it’s not glittery. I love the light pink especially and the chocolate will give some dimension to my face.

SO SUSAN FAN BRUSH This is a great brush for two of the products in this month’s box. It’s a thin brush so it applies the color lightly. So Susan is a cruelty free brand and this brush is made of nylon and taklon. In the giveaway I’ll be giving away a Bellapiere fan brush since I was so excited about the So Susan and Highlighter that I used it instantly.

PUR MINERAL GLOW BRONZER

Pur Mineral Glow Bronzer

Pur Mineral Glow Bronzer

It’s a pleasure to get a product from PUR, a brand I use often. This is a medium toned golden bronzer that’s infused with anti-oxidants. It’s the kind of bronzer than can be used year round. Since I don’t wear bronzer very often this is also going to be part of the giveaway.

GORGE, AMAZING KONJAC SPONGE

GORGE Amazing Konjac Sponge

GORGE Amazing Konjac Sponge

It’s always great to have a new Konjac Sponge since it’s an item you actually either use up or toss after a few months. It’s an exfoliating sponge that is deep cleansing and pH blanced. You can use it on face and body. I like keeping one in the shower especially for my body.

ENGLISH LAUNDRY, POUR FEMME DELUXE ROLLER BALL

English Laundry, Pour Femme Deluxe Roller Ball

English Laundry, Pour Femme Deluxe Roller Ball

If you are a regular reader of Beauty Info Zone then you know I don’t wear perfume. Sometimes I’m tempted but I’m happy with certain fragranced body oils and use those instead. Therefore this is part of the giveaway. It’s not only beautiful but English Laundry says it’s a classic scent that’s sophisticated while smelling fresh.  “Inspired by classic country gardens, English Laundry’s charming blend perfectly melds top notes of rose geranium with a backdrop of woody spicy and musky notes. Bright, enticing and elegant. Signature opens with quince, complimented by white chocolate and jasmine petals at the heart. For a purely peaceful scent, notes of orris roots, powdery musk and sensual woods have been composed at the base.

I like this subscription service so much that I recently paid up front for 6 months. That saved me $10 overall. I’m sure I’ll have 6 more months of fun before I have to make another decision. So what’s your opinion of these two Boxycharm sub boxes?  —  Marcia

GIVEAWAY INFORMATION: Here’s what will be in this giveaway for sure: *PUR Mineral Glow Bronzer (full size)  *BellaPiere Fan Brush   * English Laundry, Pour Femme Deluxe Roller Ball   *OFRA Napa Valley Liquid Lipstick  *IBY Beauty Rosebud Lipliner plus a variety of sample size items from other subscriptions that I purchase. The giveaway is open to US and Canada, email subscribers only through 2/2/17. If comments (Speak Your Mind) close please email me at beautyinfozone@gmail.com and label it Boxycharm. Be sure to click I commented so your entry can count, then continue on. Don’t be boxy – be charming and enter.

Appriya Transformative Skincare introduction with a giveaway

Appriya Transformative Skincare, Mineral products

Appriya Transformative Skincare, Mineral products

We’d like to introduce you to APPRIYA, a skincare brand that Beauty Info Zone was sent to test. The happy news is that the company sent us several of their best products for a giveaway. We love spoiling our readers with giveaways and we love testing and learning about a company as unique as Appriya.

Appriya is different than the other products we use because it’s based on water. Not just any water though but the untouched mineral waters that create the basis of their line.

Appriya water is rich in restorative natural nano like particles. These biodegradable nano like particles dissolve into the skin, enhancing the efficiency of each product’s active ingredients and ensuring a perfect and even application of every cream, serum and tonic.The skin absorbs the minerals from our water to detoxify the complexion, reduce inflammation, boost moisture retention and supplement collagen and elastic fibers for healthier skin. Bursting with the optimal balance of ionic dissolved minerals, Appriya water offers the most hydration and moisture with its neutral pH and biodegradable properties.
 There are 5 products in the Appriya mineral line and all contain silica. Silica has many properties that fortify and nourish our skin, nails, and hair. It invigorates collagen and boosts the elastin that’s deep within our skin.
MARCIA shares Appriya Mineral Tonic, Mineral Complex Serum and Delicate Zone Mineral Serum while LISA shares Appriya Mineral Cleansing Mousse and Comprehensive Mineral Day and Night Cream

Appriya Mineral Tonic and Mineral Serums

APPRIYA MINERAL CLEANSING MOUSSE

Appriya Mineral Cleansing Mousse Appriya Mineral Cleansing Mousse

($59.00)  I absolutely love this cleansing mousse. It has coconut and fruit sugars which help dissolve oil and dirt, along with vitamin E to help protect skin. The mousse is beautiful foamy goodness that works great with my Luna. I have tons of cleansers but I reach for this one all the time. Ingredients include: Coco Glucoside, which is derived from coconut and fruit sugars and provides hydration and helps maintain skin elasticity while controlling oil production. Allantoin, which is derived from the Comfrey Root-this botanical extract is an excellent soothing and healing agent. Vitamin E, which is a nutrient and antioxidant that defends against free radicals and other environmental damaging effects.

APPRIYA MINERAL TONIC

Appriya Mineral Tonic

Appriya Mineral Tonic

The secret to Appriya Mineral Tonic lies in the Appriya water that’s in every Appriya product. The water is pure and untouched but gathers its essence by the way it flows across ancient marble where it becomes enriched with silica and hydrogen peroxide.

The ingredients within are what makes this a unique toner: Cucumber Fruit Extract, Lactic Acid, Mushroom Extract, Niacinamide, Fermented Soy, and Vitamin C. Each has a job but combine to make sure that your skin remains calm and hydrated. The Niacinamide helps with acne even. The formula refines your skin’s texture and adds to the hydration level. I use this mostly at night to make sure that the remainder of my cosmetics are removed leaving my skin more hydrated. There’s a very light fragrance that’s gone quickly.

APPRIYA COMPREHENSIVE MINERAL DAY & NIGHT CREAM

Appriya Comprehensive Mineral Day & Night CreamAppriya Comprehensive Mineral Day & Night Cream

($189.00)  This is pretty spendy, but hey – it’s infused with colloidal gold! This ingredient plus a host of others create a truly elegant formula that does everything good you could wish for in a skin cream: boosts elasticity, fades wrinkles, evens skin tone, soothes skin and plumps it up. Check out all this goodness:  Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), which helps even skin tone, improves skins moisture and reduces the appearance of acne. Shea Butter (Butyrospermum Parki), embodied with Vitamins A and E, moisturizes the skin and reduces inflammation. Glycolic Acid, which treats acne and oiliness, diminishes blackheads, minimizes pores, and reduces fine lines. Hibiscin Seed Extract (Hibiscus Esculentus), which strengthens weak skin, and has a strong immediate tensor effect. Colloidal Gold, which helps firm skin and reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Evening Primrose Seed Extract (Oenothera Biennis), which improves acne, psoriasis, and eczema. Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4, which stimulates collagen and elastin fibroblast to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

I am very impressed with this beautiful moisturizer and I know you will be too!

APPRIYA MINERAL COMPLEX SERUM

Appriya Mineral Complex Serum

Appriya Mineral Complex Serum

While there are two serums from the Mineral line they are used for different purposes. Mineral Complex Serum is a great facial serum that’s especially good for dry skin. The ingredients are extremely hydrating and nurturing. Aloe, Horse Chestnut Extract and Niacinamide are the hydrating ingredients along with Appriya Water. These are native Thai elements that have been recognized to reduce redness, to calm and to soothe. The Niacinamide helps balance the moisture content so you look more radiant.

Appriya Mineral Complex Serum

Appriya Mineral Complex Serum

But there’s more!! Coconut Oil, Lotus Flower Extract and Evening Primrose Seed Extract are all indigenous to Thailand and work together to diminish wrinkles and give you a brighter and more balanced skin tone. It’s very lightweight and doesn’t take long to be absorbed into your skin; as you can see from the ingredients there is a light floral fragrance that is appealing.

APPRIYA DELICATE ZONE MINERAL SERUM

Appriya Delicate Zone Mineral Serum

Appriya Delicate Zone Mineral Serum

Delicate Zone Mineral Serum is almost as nourishing as Mineral Complex Serum but it’s intended for different areas. The work accomplished is the same in both as they help to rejuvenate, pamper and restore radiance. Delicate Zone can be used near your eyes, on your neck and decollete. I’ve used it on my face too actually.

Appriya Delicate Zone Mineral Serum

Appriya Delicate Zone Mineral Serum

As well as the Appriya water it contains Anti-Aging Plant Stem Cells that are derived from Apple Fruit Cell Culture Extract – powerful anti-oxidants that help diminish fine lines and wrinkles. It also contains Squalene that helps fight free radicals and smooth the look of fine lines. The Squalene is plant derived unlike others. Follow the two serums with the Comprehensive Day & Night Cream for maximum benefit.

GIVEAWAY INFORMATION: One US subscriber will win both the Cleansing Mousse and the Day & Night Cream. In addition they will win one of the two serums of their choice. Another subscriber will win the second serum. Because of the weight we have to make this a US only giveaway. To enter you have 2 requirements: subscribe by EMAIL to Beauty Info Zone and comment. All other items in the Rafflecopter give you more chances to win, especially with Twitter since you can do that daily. This giveaway ends on 1/30/17 at 11:59 p.m. EST. Remember you can’t win if you aren’t honest!

RUIMIO eyeshadow palettes will bring light to your eyes with this giveaway

You may not have heard of RUIMIO but once you read about these and see some pictures you’ll be eager to enter this giveaway. RUIMIO by Pixnor can be found on Amazon with a variety of cosmetic products. Two of their favorites are the Ruimio Eyeshadow Palette with 35 Warm Colors and Ruimio Eyeshadow Palette with 35 Warm Shimmer Colors.

RUIMIO Eyeshadow Palette with 35 Warm Colors

RUIMIO Eyeshadow Palette with 35 Warm Colors

RUIMIO Eyeshadow Palette with 35 Warm Shimmer Colors

RUIMIO Eyeshadow Palette with 35 Warm Shimmer Colors

Both of these palettes ($18.99) have 35 shadows (obviously) with a variety of matte, satin and shimmer shadows. The difference between these isn’t quality since they are both amazingly well pigmented. The difference is more with the colors. The top palette called Warm Colors is much warmer and has more matte shades. The bottom one called Warm Shimmer Colors has more neutrals, is darker, and has mostly shimmer shadows.

RUIMIO EYESHADOW PALETTE WITH WARM COLORS

Ruimio Warm Eyeshadow Palette

Ruimio Warm Eyeshadow Palette

As you can see the warm eyeshadow palette leans very warm. This one has shades like orange, light peach, browns, tans, coral, golden browns, dark peach, and many variations of these shades. Of the 35 shades 2/3 of them are matte while the other 1/3 are lightly shimmered. The variety of colors give you many opportunities to create dozens of looks. There are maybe 3 shades that have a little more shimmer but they aren’t over the top at all. There are a lot of dark brown shadows and some appear similar but none are exactly the same.

Sadly my Warm Shimmer palette came with one shadow (a favorite) broken which makes my pictures look unprofessional. It’s my favorite of the two though so it’s not a problem. There are two major differences in the palettes: Warm Shimmer has none of the colors in the orange family and it’s a darker palette without many light highlights. Also all the shades have some amount of shimmer even if very lightly done.

Warm Shimmer lighter shades

The shadows from the warm shimmer palette swatched above are done without primer but with some pressure. All the shadows from both palettes have great pigment and are so smooth to use. There is some fallout since they can be dusty so I always start with my eyes to prevent eyeshadow color ruining my facial makeup. Once applied there won’t be fallout and with an eyeshadow primer they’ll last you the day. While the Warm Shimmer palette is my favorite of the two, there’s some overlap in colors between the two palettes. —  Marcia

GIVEAWAY INFORMATION  The good news is that Pixnor has offered to send to 3 of the Beauty Info Zone subscribers for our giveaway. The bad news is that this is another US only giveaway. You have to decide which of the two palettes you’d like to enter to win: Warm or Warm Shimmer. Both are pretty wonderful so you can’t lose on your choice. Two requirements are constants in our giveaways 1) You MUST be an email subscriber to Beauty Info Zone and 2) you must comment. All other entries in the Rafflecopter are extra chances to win. You can enter daily with Twitter too. This is open through 1/27/17 at 11:59 p.m. EST. If comments (Speak Your Mind) close early you can email your comment to beautyinfozone@gmail.com and label it Eyeshadow Palettes. Please remember that we check your entries. Here’s to beautiful eyes with Ruimio.

Start the year with RoC®Retinol Correxion and a 2017 giveaway

roc-retinol-giveaway

We want to make sure 2017 starts on the right foot and we know that RoC® Retinol Correxion
products will do just that for you. Beauty Info Zone is proud to be part of the RoC® blogger team and use these products as part of our skincare life. RoC® sent us some items for 2017 and is sending these same products to two of our US subscribers. Read on to see what you can win.     #gotitfree

RoC® Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Daily MoisturizerLisa reminds us:  If you love retinol and you have dry skin you will love the RoC® Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Daily Moisturizer ($23). It has Broad Spectrum SPF 30 to protect skin from the harmful rays of the sun, and the packaging is perfect for keeping the ingredients effective.   RoC® Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Daily MoisturizerRetinol is an incredible ingredient for fighting fine lines and wrinkles. RoC says, “Retinol is the #1 dermatologist recommended cosmetic age-fighting ingredient. A derivative of Vitamin A, retinol works to unclog pores, boost collagen to reduce fine lines, and speed cell turnover to even out discolorations and smooth the skin.”RoC® Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Daily MoisturizerRoC® Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Daily Moisturizer

RoC® scientists were the pioneers who developed the correct packaging that is needed to keep retinol stable and effective. Two of my most favorite retinol products are both their day cream and their night cream (Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Night Cream). The Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Daily Moisturizer is perfect for those with normal to dry skin. The cream is smooth and sinks in quickly, leaving a satin finish. This elegant lotion has a terrific texture that rivals day moisturizers that are ten times the cost.

Marcia reminds us:  Everyone needs an eye cream. In my opinion it is never to early to start using one therefore RoC® Retinol Correxion Sensitive Eye Cream is easy to recommend to any of our readers.  This non-greasy eye cream works for me day or night. It doesn’t interfere with my makeup especially mascara. It dries down quickly and easily.

With regular use you’ll find that within a few weeks that puffiness and those dark circles that we all complain about will be significantly reduced. The longer you use it the more results you’ll see especially with fine lines and crows feet. It’s an affordable addition to your skincare regime and one that will help you start 2017 off properly.

A new year means a new beginning and that new beginning should start with your neck. Not enough of us are as careful about protecting our neck and chest from the signs of aging and the damage of the sun. Since it’s the start of January it’s the perfect time to make a change. As a RoC® Ambassador I’m lucky enough to be sent their products to test and one that has helped me is the RoC® Multi-Correxion 5-in-1 Chest, Neck & Face Cream.

Even though I’ve never been a sun worshipper that doesn’t mean that my neck is any less susceptible to the problems that it can cause. One of the places that can give away your age once you get into middle age is your neck. By protecting your neck with this RoC® Neck Cream you are giving yourself a chance to save yourself some aging woes.

Why do you want to use RoC® Multi-Correxion 5-in-1 Chest, Neck & Face Cream? Well for one it’s an anti-aging cream that helps hydrate your chest and neck. Even if you have oily or combination skin you’ll find that your neck is drier and needs extra protection.

In the winter I believe we aren’t quite as diligent about sunscreen protection if we live in the cold states. It’s easy to just bring the SPF you are using down your neck to finish up what’s on your hand but that’s really not enough. We need to be dedicated to talking care of our neck and chest all year long.

“The cream is specially formulated to moisturize the chest and neck area with exclusive HEXINOL Technology and Vitamin E. Multi-action HEXINOL® Technology was developed to target the visible signs of aging from a different path than other anti-aging ingredients. It can give visible improvement in as little as 4 weeks by restoring firmness, smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improving the look of discoloration and overall radiance of skin, and hydrating dry skin.”
