La Fresh – better than baby wipes and perfect for removing Halloween makeup

la fresh logoOn a recent car trip to Florida, I found myself buying baby wipes for the first time in about 7 years. I have a new car and I didn’t want anything to get sticky or messy on the way. I ended up regretting my purchase – I didn’t get unscented and I found the wipes to be heavy and unpleasant. Icky, really. Then La Fresh sent the BIZ some different wipes to try out, and boy was that a V-8 moment.  I think these individually packages wet wipes are genius.

All of these wipes are available in individual packets, or in larger packages, and be sure to check out the excellent combo packs. Believe me, whatever your needs are, La Fresh Travel-Lite has a wipe for you!

The wet wipes that La Fresh makes are for adults, not for babies (well, except for their baby wipes, lol! And they do have some just for dogs!). The variety is mind-boggling – so are the amount of ideas I have for gifting them!

La Fresh constantly continues to do research and to develop more products – all of which are environmentally responsible – to try to meet every need you may have. Here are some of my favorites:

La Fresh

La Fresh Facial Cleansing Wipes and Makeup Remover Wipes

La Fresh

La Fresh Antibacterial Wipes and Nail Polish Remover Pads

There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t need these four wipes! Of course they are perfect for travel and I keep some in my glove box at all times. I also keep some at work just in case. And with Halloween coming up, what could be better? If you are going to a party or hosting one, your guests will be grateful to find a basket of these goodies available in the rest room. And think of how handy these will be to get rid of sticky candy fingers…just perfect.

La Fresh Antiperspirant Wipes for Men…and for Women

La Fresh

La Fresh Hygiene Wipes for Women…and for Men

Nothing smells worse than stress sweat. But you can duck into the restroom, use one of the La Fresh Antiperspirant Wipes and be back to good smelling in no time. I absolutely love that they have specific wipes for women and specific ones for men. And the Hygiene Wipes? Look, it’s not comfortable to talk about, but everyone at some time will need one of these. Better to be safe than sorry and have a few of these tucked away in your purse, gym bag, or in your desk drawer.

La Fresh Insect Repellent Wipes

These work great! I love how the Insect Repellent Wipes are chemical-free and I tested them right after a big rain when the air was full of mosquitos. You never know when you’ll need one of these so I always have some handy.

La Fresh Lens & Cleaning Wipe and Shoe Shine Wipe

Now here are two excellent ideas for wipes!! A tissue often can’t really clean glasses properly, and boy if you can’t see you are in trouble. It also works great for mirrors and for computer screens. And I love the Shoe Shine Wipes! These make scuffs disappear and shoes look soft and brand new again.

Every wipe I tried worked like a charm. See for yourself – here is a clip,  Zombie vs. La Fresh Makeup Remover, that shows how terrific the Makeup Wipe is.

I absolutely think you should invest in some wipes for yourself – they aren’t expensive, and having these on hand in your car, at work, and in your purse can make any super stressful situation much, much easier. They are fantastic for trips and think of all the great gifting ideas – I am putting together a collection for my son at college. My daughters are going to find some of them in their stockings at Christmas. And every time I have people over, a basket of these will be in every bathroom just in case. There are so many possibilities it’s terrific! Head on over to La Fresh to take a look for yourself.  – Lisa

Eco-Armour comes to the rescue this summer with wonderful products and a giveaway

Beauty Info Zone always gets excited when we learn about a new brand and it’s even more exciting when the brand is so new that it only has been available to everyone since late April 2012. The brand we want you to learn more about with us is Eco-Armour Shave With Benefits. Shave With Benefits is just like your friend with benefits – you get extras! This is a company that has created a luxurious botanical based shaving foam. So not only do you get to use the best shaving product around but you also get aromatherapy while doing so. Eco-Armour is a brand that makes products for men and women to both use and share so even your significant other gets benefits with your purchase (ladies, it’s a great excuse to buy!!). In addition to Shave with Benefits they have also created a terrific mosquito repellant called Outdoor. Read what Marcia and Lisa have experienced with these and stay tuned for a giveaway!!  All eco-armour products are natural liquid-based, non-aerosol foams guaranteed to work when used as directed.

Marcia’s Side:

If I asked you to make a list of your least favorite beauty jobs I’m betting that shaving your legs is towards the top of that list. For me blow drying my thick hair is number one but number two is shaving my legs. I’m always worried that I’m going to nick myself plus I hate the extra time it takes in the shower. But with SHAVE WITH BENEFITS in my shower that job loses place two on the list and ends up much further down. I actually don’t mind shaving quite as much when I can use a product I enjoy. Shave With Benefits is a terrific shaving foam that is botanical based. It comes in three scents: Bergamot + Pink Grapefruit (my favorite), Mint + Eucalyptus, and Pomegranate + Mango. ($24 dollars each or $60 for the trio, each 5 oz.) Bergamot + Pink Grapefruit is a light citrus and is highly recommended for sensitive skin. Mint + Eucalyptus is refreshing and almost tingly so it’s like a spa experience. Pomegranate + Mango has an exotic fragrance. All of these contain witch hazel as the natural base for this foam  as well as containing high quality aloe vera, essential oils, vegetable glycerin and citric acid.

Shaving has become much easier and much more pleasant since I not only get a close shave but this gentle foam creates a barrier on my skin that prevents me from getting small nicks. It’s very moisturizing and this summer I haven’t even felt the need to follow up with a body lotion most days.

More benefits: You only have to shake the jar a little to create the rich foam, you can tell right away when it’s time to stop shaking which is just a little benefit but one I appreciate. Another benefit is that I learned that after shaving and rinsing my razor, it’s good to leave a line of the foam on the blade; it helps extend the life of the razor head! And one more benefit is that I can use this not only for shaving but as a facial and body cleanser. No wonder the creator called it “with benefits”.

Lisa’s Side:

I tried Shave with Benefits in Pomegranate + Mango, which smells truly wonderful.  It’s a super fresh, invigorating scent that is unisex – my hubby loves it too.  It does a terrific job of leaving my skin super smooth after shaving, and what I really love is that it’s natural liquid-based and non-aerosol.

I also tried a totally different kind of product called  Outdoor Botanical Insect Repellent and Moisturizer.  Now, typically these types of products smell pretty awful – which is what I always thought was what kept the insects away!  But apparently not, because this smells really nice, like lemons.

Eco Armor Outdoor Insect Repellent

This is a spray that goes on wet.  First you shake, spray, then rub it in.  It really does leave your skin super moisturized, and it repels biting and disease-carrying insects like mosquitos and black flies.  It’s also 100% botanical!  That means no DEET inside.  It’s also great for relieving pain from sunburn and skin irritations.

I go hiking all the time, and after the nasty smelling insect repellents I have endured, this was a totally refreshing change.

Now for our GIVEAWAY. Eco-Armour has generously donated all 4 of the products reviewed. The winner will receive the 2 oz sizes of Shave With Benefits in all 3 fragrances as well as Outdoor Insect Repellent (also 2 oz). You must subscribe to Beauty Info Zone and live in the US to enter.
