DERMAdoctor’s new Kakadu C line is a skincare lover’s delight (giveaway time)

I was recently alerted to a new line from DERMAdoctor so I took myself to Ulta to check it out. The more I saw, the more I learned, the more I wanted! As an admitted skincare lover these DERMAdoctor Kakadu-C products look amazing. I know they smell amazing too – well actually they are fragrance free which makes them smell amazing to me!KakaduC_1

Kakadu is a tree that is native to Australia which grows the Kakadu Plum, a unique Vitamin C source. It contains about 55 times the amount of vitamin C as a Florida orange does. According to an article I read on StyleCraze the uses for this natural product has over 10 benefits to us. Being so rich in Vitamin C makes it an ideal anti-oxidant in skincare as it helps slow down the aging process.

In my research I came across an article on Health With Food that talks about Vitamin C and Kakadu Plum: “But why are vitamin C rich foods, such as Kakadu plums, so good for you? For one thing, vitamin C plays a crucial role in keeping your immune system, bones, teeth, and gums strong and healthy. It can also help keep your skin supple due to its ability to stimulate collagen production, and it may help prevent iron deficiency by improving the body’s capability to absorb iron from foods. Vitamin C may also have allergy-fighting properties due to its ability to prevent histamine release and to stimulate detoxification of existing histamine in the body.

DERMAdoctor harnessed the use of this amazing Vitamin C source from the Kakadu tree to bring their line of Kakadu-C products to market.

Among the products in this great line are a few I found noteworthy. The Kakaju C 20% Vitamin C Serum seems outstanding. This daily rejuvenating essential assists in brightening and evening skin tone while leaving skin feeling firmer, smoother, tighter and complexion looking more radiant. A portion of the proceeds of the sale of each serum will be donated to the Kimberley Training Institute of Western Australia to help build Aboriginal community enterprises based on the Kakadu Plum. As someone who loves a great serum this one has caught my eye.

DERMAdoctor Kakadu C Eye Souffle

DERMAdoctor Kakadu C Eye Souffle

The first product I opened at Ulta was the Kakadu C Eye Souffle. This was as light as air yet felt so decadently rich.

DERMAdoctor Kakadu C Eye Souffle

DERMAdoctor Kakadu C Eye Souffle

Judging by the amount of people that sampled this at the store it’s obviously quite popular too. This brightening eye cream hydrates, smoothes and firms delicate skin for a more ageless appearance.

DERMAdoctor Kakadu C Face Creme

DERMAdoctor Kakadu C Face Creme

This DERMAdoctor Kakadu C Face Creme has my nose’s approval. This has a rich and hydrating feel to it. It’s meant for dehydrated, sensitive and mature skin so I know this would be great for me. Additional ingredients are Kakadu plum, Desert Lime and Quandong Peach extracts and enhanced with tripeptide technology.kakadu-vertical-product-banner

Since we can’t take a trip to Australia to find this ingredient we can get it with DERMAdoctor’s Kakadu-C line. There are several kits too to try out the products so you can see what it will do for your skin. Happily we were offered a giveaway for one of our Beauty Info Zone US subscribers to win the DERMAdoctor Kakadu-C Eye Souffle. Allure magazine considers Kakadu Plum to be one of the newest must-have ingredients and you could be in on that.

To enter follow the directions on the Rafflecopter. This giveaway will end on June 2, 2017 at 11:59 and the prize will be sent by Nakturnal the sponsor of the giveaway. Good luck!  —  Marcia

Evine and #peaceandlovejewelry come together with these beauties and a 3 person giveaway

As a beauty blogger you know that beauty of all kinds is my jam. I want it all – skincare, eyeshadow, blush, highlighters, concealers, brushes – and the list goes on. But what are my other loves? How about jewelry? Are you with me on that? Who doesn’t love some new affordable jewelry products in their life? Fashion Flash has been working with Evine and Nancy Davis of Peace & Love Jewelry #peaceandlovejewelry. Today I bring you a giveaway for 3 US readers that I’m very excited about.

Let me share a little about Nancy Davis and Peace & Love. On both Sunday May 20th and Monday May 21st Nancy Davis will be live on Evine to share her Peace & Love Jewelry (2 p.m. and 7 p.m. CDT) and Invicta watches (May 20-21). Seeing this dynamo of a woman is a treat, seeing the jewelry and watches is excitement.

Nancy Davis and #peaceandlovejewelry items

Nancy Davis and #peaceandlovejewelry items

Five Fashion Flash bloggers are giving away a variety of these #peaceandlovejewelry items. The three prizes I have are a beautiful Peace & Love Legacy White Topaz & White Zircon Charm Adjustable Slide Bracelet, a Baby Invicta Lupah Peace & Love Watch with 7 interchangeable bands (Pink), and a Grand Invicta Lupah Peace & Love Watch with 7 interchangeable bands (Blue).

Peace & Love Legacy White Topaz & White Zircon Charm Adjustable Slide Bracelet

Peace & Love Legacy White Topaz & White Zircon Charm Adjustable Slide Bracelet

Sweet, shimmering style that’s totally you! Say something particular about yourself with this gorgeous adjustable slide bracelet. Sparkling white zircons encrust a charm in your choice of shape right at the center. Four bezel-set white topazes link both sides of the charm to the box link chain at the back of the bracelet. Simply slide the bead to get just the right fit for your wrist.
While these beautiful bracelets come in 14 styles I’m lucky enough to have the CROWN PEACE & LOVE with 8 round modified-brilliant cut 3mm white topaz and various round modified-brilliant cut 0.9-1.99mm stones.

Peace & Love Legacy White Topaz & White Zircon Charm Adjustable Slide Bracelet Back view

One of the things I really admire about this bracelet is how adjustable it is. I happen to have a large wrist and it fits me perfectly. My DIL (above picture) is tiny and she thought the bracelet was wonderfully comfortable.  Measurements for this bracelet are  9″L x 3/4″W x 1/8″H.

Invicta Lupah Peace & Love Quartz Watches

Invicta Lupah Peace & Love Quartz Watches

Look at these great spring and summer styles of the Invicta Lupah Peace & Love Quartz Watches. There are two different sizes with 2 “colors” each. The Baby set is the smaller of the two though the look of both is identical.

Baby Invicta Lupah Peace & Love Quartz Watch w/ 7-Piece Leather Strap Set

Baby Invicta Lupah Peace & Love Quartz Watch w/ 7-Piece Leather Strap Set

The Baby Set that I’m able to give away is the one called pink and has a pink heart face. It has 7 leather straps (light orange, aqua, bright pink, red, yellow, white, and black). Here’s some stats: the case is 34mm L x 29mm W, it’s 14mm thick, the crystal is Flame Fusion and has a push/pull crown, the strap is 8-3/4″ L x 16mm W and fits up to an 8″ wrist.

Grand Invicta Lupah Peace & Love Quartz Watch w/ 7-Piece Leather Strap Set

Grand Invicta Lupah Peace & Love Quartz Watch w/ 7-Piece Leather Strap Set

The Grand size is bigger and since I have the blue set with the blue heart face to give away the strap colors are different too (orange, black, white, yellow, brown, chartreuse and blue). This one fits a wrist up to 9-3/4″ and the strap is 10-3/4″ L x 26mm W. peace and love

The dial lives up to the Peace & Love name with a heart and peace sign in pink or blue. Backed by clean white color, it’s easy to read and even easier to show off. Petal-shaped hour markers and Arabic numerals fill the hour positions as Tritnite gives the hands a warm glow…kind of like the feeling you’ll get when you know this watch commemorates the Race to Erase MS foundation. The watches come in a sturdy lined box that will keep your water resistant watch and straps in perfect shape.

GIVEAWAY INFORMATION: Beauty Info Zone has been sent these 3 #peaceandlovejewelry items to give to 3 different US readers. On the Rafflecopter you’ll need to comment which piece you’d most like to win or you can comment the order that you’d like to win. We hope you’ll tune into EVINE to see these for yourself and to buy one for an upcoming gift. With high school and college graduation here, these would be perfect. The giveaway runs through 5/29 so it’s shorter than usual. Don’t be late to the party!  —  Marcia

Surprise Word And Fireworks Showing Shock And Celebration


It’s unreal how many samples I’ve uncovered in packing for my grand move. I obviously don’t toss things easily since I’d much rather give them away. What I have for this giveaway is a massive amount of samples. Most of these are packets but there are also some deluxe sizes in there. These are 90% skincare or bath/body related but there’s also a few sample size cosmetic items. My grandchildren love what they call “blind bags” and are always begging me to buy them for them. They know the theme of the blind bag but not what they’ll discover in it. For them it’s My Little Pony, Minions, Star Wars, and Legos. For you it’s skincare mostly from Sephora and Nordstrom with some drugstore items thrown in.

So are you willing to take a chance on a BLIND BAG giveaway? There will be enough for a year and/or you can share. If so enter this giveaway which is US only. Daring subscribers only need apply! Ends 5/31/17 at 11:59 p.m. EDT. Three winners.

MinxNY has added clean fun to my life – and this giveaway could add it to your life


Have you heard of MinxNY? They have a new Spa Collection that makes getting clean fun! Not only are these products fun but they are so reasonably priced that having them will make you one thrilled lady. And it keeps getting better because MinxNY Spa Collection is currently on sale for 20% off.

There are 3 items that they sent – one for me and one for our giveaway winner.

MinxNY Spa Collection

MinxNY Spa Collection

The SPA SHOWER CAP is the cutest and most substantial shower cap I’ve ever had the pleasure of using. I only wash my hair a few times a week so a shower cap is a necessity for me when taking a shower. How great is it to get out of your shower and see yourself saying HELLO GORGEOUS! Ain’t that the truth.

Minx Spa Shower Cap

Minx Spa Shower Cap

Outside you have a waterproof protective covering while inside you’ll find a soft cotton-polyester terry lining. The terry cloth helps wick away any moisture so you come out dry and gorgeous!

It even comes with a sturdy travel bag so you have no excuse not to take it on a vacation.

WIPE OUT! MAKE-UP REMOVER CLOTH is a Kissable product! Everyone will want to kiss your soft skin after you’ve used this. And you’ll want to feel how soft your face is after the gentle exfoliation.

MinxNY Kissable Make-Up Remover Cloth

MinxNY Kissable Make-Up Remover Cloth

This 2-in-1 cleansing cloth is available in pink or blue and does double duty. Use it to remove makeup without cleanser and/or you can use this as an exfoliator cloth. The steps are easy.

MinxNY Kissable Make-Up Remover Cloth

MinxNY Kissable Make-Up Remover Cloth

Wet the cloth and rub it outwardly across your face and neck. Rewet the cloth, squeeze and let the cosmetics go down the drain. Keep doing that until the water runs clear.

MinxNY Kissable Make-Up Remover Cloth

Now to exfoliate turn it to the other side and repeat but this time add your facial cleanser onto the Wipeout Cleansing Cloth. Now use it going INWARDS on your face. So you’re going in the opposite direction to very gently exfoliate. There’s nothing harsh about it. When you’ve squeezed out the water just hang it to air dry.

MinxNY Kissables Exfoliating Mitt

MinxNY Kissables Exfoliating Mitt

Let’s not forget your body and for that there’s the KISSABLES EXFOLIATING MITT. While this can be used on your face too it’s your body that’s going to love this gentle but efficient exfoliation mitt.

MinxNY Kissables Exfoliating Mitt

MinxNY Kissables Exfoliating Mitt

I love this and love that I can use this over and over again. The mitt fits securely but not tightly over your hand. You have the option of using a cleanser or just lukewarm water. Rub it over your skin and you’ve quickly exfoliated. You’ll be surprised how many layers of dead skin will be removed without you feeling uncomfortable.

MinxNY Kissables Exfoliating Mitt

MinxNY Kissables Exfoliating Mitt

The mitt itself is 100% Viscose and feels gentle against your skin but don’t worry since it has a job and it does that job well. If you have ingrown hairs expect them to be long gone after this Exfoliating Mitt.

I’m excited that I’ve been introduced to MinxNY and their Spa Collection. There’s nothing like a beauty day at home and they’ve contributed to mine for sure.  —  Marcia

Now for the good news! MinxNY has sent me a second set just for one of our subscribers. The winner will receive all three of these products to have their own Spa Days at home. US only. You m.u.s.t. be a Beauty Info Zone email subscriber and you must comment. I seem to say that every other day but some people don’t follow those simple rules and they always get disqualified! Don’t let that be you. This giveaway is open through 5/25/17 at 11:59 p.m. EDT. All directions are in the Rafflecopter.
