Earthen Vegan Daily Facial Cleanser review and #giveaway

Earthen Daily Facial Cleanser


We talk about wanting to use green products all the time but that doesn’t always translate into our buying habits. Part of the problem is that most stores that we shop at don’t seem to have the smaller independent companies that are dedicated to living green. Listen to Earthen’s message though: At Earthen, we believe that everyone’s journey is different when it comes to self discovery and building confidence. To us, your skincare routine reflects more than just achieving the perfect complexion. It’s having the perseverance and tenacity to discover your best self in order to live a fulfilled life.

All of their products are natural and chemical free. They also are fragrance free which is an important feature to me. I’ve just had the opportunity to use their Daily Facial Cleanser but would love to try other products in the line after seeing the effectiveness of this vegan cleanser.


All cleansers should remove makeup, oil, dirt and pollutants from your face but not all do. Earthen’s Daily Facial Cleanser though has done that for me. It’s a very light foaming cleanser. Actually if it didn’t say it was foaming I wouldn’t have known it. It lathers up a little but not too much. I love that my skin doesn’t feel dry or stripped after using it. It’s a great first step in my routine. It was created for all skin types and people even use it with their older children.

Earthen Daily Facial Cleanser comes in 2 sizes – the 3 oz is considered a travel size so you can use it for that or for your gym or work bag. The 6 oz is the full size that I keep by my sink.

For morning and evening use.

  1. Gently massage a moderate amount onto moistened face and neck.

  2. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.

  3. Gently pat dry with a soft towel.

  4. Follow with our Repair and Lift Serum and one of our moisturizers.


Earthen Facial Cleanser Ingredients

The Earthen Facial Cleanser is going to leave your skin soft, moisturized and not stripped of natural oils. It leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth without any dryness.  —  Marcia

GIVEAWAY: Now for the really good news, 3 US Beauty Info Zone subscribers will win a skincare package from Earthen. If you win, you’ll get to try more than I have had the opportunity to try. I’m jealous but I’m excited that they are offering this for our readers. Winners will receive a package with the vegan cleanser, instant peel and serum. (Maybe I can beg to get this set myself!!) The giveaway is open through Dec. 20th at 11:59 EST to US only. Please remember to comment and be a subscriber.

Facelift Kit Giveaway from Brazilskin

If you haven’t won a Bratoxinsta® serum from one of the blogs offering a giveaway, now you have a bigger chance since you can win one in a kit from The following information tells you all about the prize and comes directly from the company. The Rafflecopter at the bottom is your way to enter on Beauty Info Zone.

Brazilian Facelift Kit

When it comes to wrinkles and skin firming, women want a regimen that delivers immediate results. They want to feel and see it working. Brazilian Skin has come into the beauty scene with, what is poised to be, the next cult favorite.

The line contains a powerful combination of nature and science from ingredients derived throughout Central and South America. With a board of advisors that includes Dr. Andrea Godoy; the Brazilian Dermatologist of choice for former Victoria’s Secret bombshells Alessandra Ambrosio and Ana Beatriz Barros, Brazilian Skin’s Facelift Kit offers a simple daily 3 step system that radically reduces wrinkles, tightens, and firms skin erasing 10 years within 2 weeks.

The Facelift Kit retails for $229.00, each serum in the kit can be purchased individually. To understand what makes these serums so special, we must first look at their ingredients, and more importantly the dosing and combination of them.

“When people apply Brazilian Skin serums and feel their face tightening and see the transformation within a minute, they immediately ask me what the ingredients are and how is this even possible, explains,” Dr. Godoy. “After 2 weeks of use people are amazed at very specific skin improvements such as reduced scarring, breakouts, lines and wrinkles. This is due to the effective collaboration of ingredients at clinical levels,” she adds.

Key ingredients found in Brazilian Skin’s serums include:

Acmella Oleracea or “Jambu” a plant extract found to have very similar, short-lived effects to Botulinum Toxin. “This is the “magic” ingredient that gives the user the tightening sensation, so they feel it and see it working. When used regularly, elasticity is significantly improved,” explains Dr. Godoy.

Magnesium Aluminum, a naturally occurring mineral derived from purified and refined clay, which tightens and smooths the appearance of under-eye puffiness, sagging, and fine lines.

Camu Camu contains more Vitamin C than oranges. Obtained from berries, it serves as a superfood for skin. “Here you’re getting a lot of ellagic acid, a powerful antioxidant that protects skin from free radicals. This is what addresses acne scarring and dullness due to sun damage,” explains Dr. Godoy.

Acacia Gum which is extracted from the sap of the Acacia Tree is another ingredient that tightens, firms and smooths skin at the same time giving skin a younger, supple appearance.

Snail Mucin which seals in moisture and allows active ingredients to penetrate the skin very well, also diminishes fine lines and has incredible healing capabilities which address acne scars, sun spots and dry spots. “This ingredient is incredibly powerful for skin healing and some doctors recommend it for those who may react harshly to Retin A,” says Dr. Godoy.

Snap 8 Peptide works to smooth away the look of wrinkles and expression marks. This is particularly effective on the forehead and around the eyes.

Stem Cell Complex are found in the forms of (Euterpe Oleracea (Acai) Fruit Extract, Perilla Frutescens (Chinese Extract) and native to the Amazon Rainforest, the Acai Palm Tree renowned for its ability to thrive in harsh conditions. The Chinese Basil Plant is rich in Rosmarinic Acid, which is known for its ability to plump up tired skin. These 3 antioxidants help to defend against oxidative stress by effectively disarming radicals.“ Stem cells are a powerful skin defender against stress. This slows down aging as stem cells divide and spread out to replenish other cells or reach other damaged tissue for repair,” explains Dr. Godoy.

Brazilian Skin’s Facelift Kit $229


PRICE: $99.99

STEP TWO:  BRATOXINSTA® The 60 Second Smoother of Lines and Wrinkles

PRICE: $59.99

The formula in Bratoxinsta® contains stem cells from the Acai Palm Tree, Basil Plant, and White Oak Plant. In addition, 6 bioactive peptides help smooth the appearance of existing fine lines and wrinkles by supporting the proteins that weaken with age. These active ingredients work synergistically with the peptides to deliver vital phytonutrients and antioxidants.

Another unique ingredient in Bratoxinsta is Chondrus Crispus (Seaweed) Extract also known as Irish Sea Moss, which contains a hydrating, nutrient-rich blend of vitamins and trace minerals such as sulfur, iodine, magnesium, and selenium.

Key Benefits

  • Instantly smooths the appearance of fine lines
  • Sculpts facial contours

How Bratoxinsta Works

Some of Bratoxinsta’s ingredients will help to tighten the skin on the surface, helping to smooth fine expression lines and blur the appearance of wrinkles. Once applied, the powerful active ingredients will start working on getting your skin smoother, tighter, and more youthful-looking with every use.


Simply dispense a small amount on to your fingertips and feather it throughout fine expression lines, and wrinkles. Wait about a minute to start feeling the tightening effects of Bratoxinsta. Wait for it to set before applying makeup. Apply to a clean and moisturized face.


Price $69.99

Brazilian Skin’s Potent Açai Triple Stem Cell Complex Mask is an overnight mask application crafted with an innovative, breathable, and nourishing film ingredient that functions as a transdermal penetration medium to facilitate the complete absorption of the “Grams Triple Stem Cell Complex.”

This remarkable complex uses the latest stem cell technology to derive powerful actives from Acai Palm, Chinese Basil, and White Oak resource materials. These derivatives impart antioxidant, protectant, and anti-aging benefits. For ultimate results, apply the mask just before bedtime & leave on overnight.

Key Benefits

  • Transparent, Odorless & Non-Greasy Overnight Film
  • Outstanding breathability, water and rub resistant
  • Anti-Oxidant + Anti-Aging Benefits
  • Complete absorption into the skin

How the Acai Mask Works

The mask uses a delightfully smooth and transparent base ingredient called Baycusan®. This serves as the perfect medium to hold and sink the active ingredients into the skin. It exhibits a non-greasy, non-sticky skin feeling and is odorless. Baycusan’s outstanding water resistance and rub resistance ensures that the mask sits comfortably on your skin and stays there.  This is also beneficial should you choose to leave the mask on while you sleep, as the mask won’t rub and fade off. Its hydroscopic and breathable barrier properties ensure the skin locks in valuable moisture and breathe uninterrupted.


Daily Application as needed. Apply by smoothing gently over entire face, avoiding eye area. Leave on for 20 minutes until completely dry. To remove, apply water and peel or rub off easily. For optimal results and to facilitate the long-lasting retention of the stem cell antioxidant properties to the skin, apply mask before bedtime and leave on overnight.

“Brazilian Skin’s line of serums is really ideal for a woman who wants significantly visible transformation in less than 10 minutes. The results   are truly remarkable. The women who try it are instantly amazed,” says Dr. Godoy.

Meet Dr. Andrea Godoy- A leading Brazilian Dermatologist

After graduating from the University of Medical Sciences of Santos in Brazil in 1999 with a Specialist Medical Degree in Dermatology, Dr. Godoy has spent years discovering the most cutting-edge technologies and treatments to keep her patients looking young and beautiful. She has traveled all over the world attending countless workshops, conventions and pieces of training (i.e. the Photo Dynamic Therapy in Milan, 2005.)

As a top Dermatologist for Brazilian Supermodels, Dr. Godoy has also co-authored “Foundations on Dermatology” and “Treatise on Dermatological Surgery, Cosmetic and Laser.”

A Fashion Flash book & beauty giveaway

Fashion Flash has been working with a variety of publishers and beauty companies to bring you the best of both worlds. This time it’s Beauty Info Zone’s chance to share a lovely giveaway for two items you’ll absolutely love.

Books and Beauty Giveaway


NOT OUR KIND by Kitty Zeldis

Harper Collins has published “Not Our Kind” by Kitty Zeldis, a book that is perfect for our times even though it takes place in 1947. It’s a story of a bright, compassionate, and beautiful Jewish heroine who has been hired to be the mentor of a disabled Christian girl during anti-Semitic times. The story is very compelling and tugs at heartstrings explaining the ups and downs of the situation. It reminds you that friendship is powerful but so is hatred. No matter what “our kind” is to you, this story will compel you to read and remember.

“[An] enthralling portrait of a woman daring to defy convention in the face of rigid social confines. Lively period details of the bustling city breathe life into Not Our Kind, a story capturing issues of discrimination, the marginalization of women and class disparities. Often veering in unexpected directions, the novel is filled with thought-provoking turns that explore timely subjects in a gripping light. . . . the book’s greatest strength is exploring how the building of relationships can help dissolve ignorance. . . . its themes linger long after the final page is read.”(USA Today)

Lucky Chick Masterpiece Lip Set

You’ve met the book and now you’ll meet the beauty. Lucky Chick is a cosmetic line that also has a story. This is a mother and daughter team who created Lucky Chick. “Through art, we have always have found a happy place. In fact, we see art as a thread that connects our lives. The colors and objects we live with or wear – they sway our moods and bring us joy. The impact of art continues to influence our lives and our approach to beauty, from the ingredients we use to the design of our packaging.” Free of parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, triclosan, sulfates, and gluten, all Lucky Chick products are made right in New York, and Stephanie formulates and approves each product. The line has launched with an array of cruelty free and vegan color-punched products for the face.

Lucky Chick Masterpiece Lip Set

This Masterpiece Lip Set has 5 lip products in an artistic gift box. The top opens to a mirror that is perfect for applying your lip of the day. The colors are all very striking:  Royal Lip Lacquer, Desire Lip Lacquer, Joy Lip Lacquer, Sweet Lip Lacquer and Shimmer Lip Glaze.

Lucky Chick Masterpiece Lip Set

The lip lacquers are shiny and not matte. There is a slight fragrance to them that doesn’t last long. You can mix them to create your own color. Plus the Shimmer Lip Glaze is a great top coat to bring you from daily wear to stunning lightly shimmered lips that stand up to all the lights. The happy news too is that these are vegan, cruelty-free, paraben free, and gluten free.

Lucky Chick Joy Lip Lacquer

GIVEAWAY: Enter today to win both the hardcover version of this timely novel, Not Our Kind by Kitty Zeldes as well as the gift box of 5 Lip Lacquers. The prize will be sent to the US winner by Fashion Flash. The giveaway is open to US readers only. The only requirement is that you comment on the blog post. But the chances of winning are better with the more you do. Open through 12/17 at 11:59 pm EST. The winner will be emailed and will have 48 hours to reply.
