Clear up skin congestion with our derma*e® giveaway!

fall-season-brings-congested-skinThe change of seasons means confused skin that makes too much oil and gets congested from a build up of dead skin. Keeping clear, glowing skin requires preventative measures, and we have an awesome giveaway for exactly what you need to stay on top of skin care woes. Prevent those disasters with Purifying products from derma*e®, a fabulous eco-ethical company that is completely committed to your health, well-being, and the environment.                    samples

derma*e® giveaway!We have five of our favorite derma*e® products in this giveaway:

  1. Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask ($19.50)
  2. Purifying Daily Detox Scrub ($15.50)
  3. Purifying Gel Cleanser ($15.50)
  4. Purifying Toner Mist ($15.50)
  5. Purifying Youth Serum ($29.50)

The key to creating skin that gets the most from skin care products is exfoliation. derma*e® has some of the best exfoliating products out there.

DermaE Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask

As a deep clean once a week, the Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask ($19.50) detoxes skin in two ways:

(1) Natural clays infused with Kimarine® Wakame, Bladderwrack and Activated Charcoal lift out dirt, oil and bacteria to decongest pores as the mask dries

(2) Apricot Seed Powder exfoliates away dead skin cells and captured debris upon removal. Kaolin and Bentonite Clays absorb excess oils and impurities, relieving skin congestion.

Apply a thin layer to clean, dry skin, concentrating on areas that have a tendency to be problematic. For me, that means nose and chin. It only takes about five minutes for it to dry, then using wet fingertips massage the mask in small circles. This ‘supersizes’ the exfoliation and really cleans out those pores. Rinse off with warm water or a damp washcloth. This treatment mask has many of the same powerful ingredients as the Purifying Gel Cleanser, so it’s the perfect complimentary deep clean.

derma e Purifying Daily Detox Scrub

derma e Purifying Daily Detox Scrub

The Purifying Daily Detox Scrub ($15.50) is a facial exfoliant paste that is gentle but very effective. It has a great ingredient list, starting with the charcoal that absorbs impurities so they can be washed away. The scrubbing power comes from Apricot Seed Powder that sloughs off any dead cells, dirt, and oil. The aloe keeps skin super soft and moist. Like all the Purifying products, it also has the Kimarine® and bladderwrack mentioned earlier. Because the Purifying Daily Detox Scrub doesn’t have a whole slew of complicated ingredients, this gentle scrub is safe for even very sensitive skin. I think it’s a fantastic way to keep skin glowing and ready for serum and moisturizer.

DermaE Purifying Gel Cleanser

I am a huge fan of derma*e’s® Purifying Gel Cleanser ($15.50) because it exfoliates so gently. Even though it’s an exfoliating cleanser, I can use my Luna cleansing brush without fear of being too rough on my skin and I think it would be perfect to use with a Clarisonic. I have been working out like crazy for the last six months and this is my favorite choice for washing my face when I get home because it is perfect for removing sweat, toxins, and bacteria.

This cleanser is pH balanced and has no fragrance or sulfates. Ingredients include these minerals and natural toxin fighters:

Kimarine® Wakame is a potassium-rich, magnesium-rich seaweed that is clinically proven to protect skin against environmental pollutants (exhaust fumes, cigarette smoke, heavy metals).

Bladderwrack is an antioxidant-rich, mineral-rich seaweed known for its water-binding properties, supporting healthy skin hydration and nourishment.

Activated Charcoal, known for absorbing 100 to 200 times its weight in impurities, helps thoroughly remove toxins from the skin’s surface.

Green Tea delivers potent antioxidant defense, and a base of Aloe Leaf Juice revives skin with fresh, healthy hydration. 

derma e® Purifying Toner Mist

derma e® Purifying Toner Mist

Once you have exfoliated and cleansed your skin, the next best step is to hydrate and treat with antioxidants using a great toner. The derma*e® Purifying Toner Mist ($15.50) is the toner for the job since it has Marine Algae and Green Tea to refresh and fortify your skin against the environment. It’s also pH balanced with Kimarine® Wakame, Bladderwrack, Green Tea antioxidants, and Aloe Leaf Juice. I use this after exfoliating and cleansing at night, as well as in the morning before treatment and moisturizer. While it’s a spray, I don’t recommend spraying it directly on your face since it comes out a little heavy and uneven. It’s better sprayed onto a cotton pad then wiped on. An added bonus – if you happened to miss any makeup or dirt while cleansing, this lifts away anything that might cause clogged pores.

DermaE Purifying Youth Serum

With skin clean and ready to make the most of any treatment, an excellent treatment serum is the Purifying Youth Serum ($29.50). Holy smokes is this good stuff! Awesome ingredients like Kimarine® Wakame,  Bladderwrack, and Green Tea together in an Aloe Leaf Juice Base makes for super healthy, glowy skin. This is a great primer for foundation, too. And like all derma*e® products, it’s 100% vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, mineral oil-free, lanolin-free, gluten-free, and GMO-free.

You can find products derma*e® at Ulta and at Whole Foods.  Two Beauty Info Zone readers will win this giveaway – just list the products you want to win in the order you want them!  The Grand Prize Winner gets 3 products, and the 2nd place winner gets 2 products.  This is a US only giveaway that ends at 11:59 pm EST on 11/19/16.  As always, you must subscribe to Beauty Info Zone’s emails and comment.

Detox and get fresh skin with our Citrus Clear Giveaway!

Citrus Clear Giveaway!Have you got oily skin that is prone to blackheads? I know it’s not fun dealing with the problems that come with this skin type, but today is your lucky day because we have a giveaway just for you!

Citrus Clear has offered a giveaway for two products that are heavy hitters when it comes to decongesting skin:  the Citrus Clear Pore & Blackhead Extracting Mask ($35) and the Citrus Clear Sensitive Moisturizer ($25).  (samples)

Citrus Clear
Citrus Clear Pore & Blackhead Extracting Mask

The Pore & Blackhead Extracting Mask is a clay mask that is not for wimps. This is gold for those with very oily skin and lots of clogged pores. It has plants, herbs, and two kinds of clay that really go deep into pores to pull out blackheads and dirt.

Citrus Clear Pore & Blackhead Extracting Mask

Citrus Clear Pore & Blackhead Extracting Mask

Just apply a thin layer to clean dry skin and leave it on for about five minutes. While the mask dries, it grabs whatever is blocking your pores and absorbs it into the clay, which you then wash off. This process definitely makes skin tingle and I found the mask continues to work for the next day or two. If you don’t have super oily skin to begin with, don’t be surprised if you have some peeling for a day or two! Pores look smaller immediately…the effect is pretty impressive.

Some of the key ingredients:  KAOLIN CLAY, a highly absorbent clay; PURIFIED SMECTITE CLAY, great for detoxing skin; LEMON ESSENTIAL OIL, an antibacterial that helps decongest skin; ORANGE PEEL EXTRACT, another ingredient for dissolving dirt and blackheads; SEA KELP, an exfoliant; and GRAPESEED OIL, another antibacterial that kills infections.

After such a thorough cleansing, skin needs some TLC which the Citrus Clear Sensitive Moisturizer provides.

Citrus Clear Sensitive Moisturizer

The Sensitive Moisturizer can be used every day, but it’s especially soothing after the mask treatment. This moisturizer rehydrates skin, helps to balance out oil production, and has wonderful ingredients like Amino Acids and Vitamin B5.

Take some time to detox your skin and get rid of those nasty blackheads! Our Citrus Clear Giveaway has one winner and the prize is a Pore & Blackhead Extracting Mask and a Sensitive Moisturizer. This giveaway is US only and ends 10/5/16 at 11:59 pm EST. If the Rafflecopter gets cranky and won’t let you leave a comment, just email your comment to us at beautyinfozone@gmail.com and label it CITRUS CLEAR.  Good luck for some good skin!!  – Lisa

Purifying inside and out with DermaE

DermaEI was recently sent a beautiful gift box full of all sorts of ‘good for you’ goodies. derma e’s National Educator, Jaime cane, did a wonderful job curating this box for ‘beauty gurus’.
DermaE

There are lots of things we can do to feel great and look even better. This beauty box listed some important points: be sure to exfoliate so your skin care fully absorbs and works most effectively. Love your greens to stay  healthy on the inside. Stay hydrated by drinking lots of water – it helps keep the wrinkles away. And get 7 or 8 hours of sleep at night to prevent puffiness, acne breakouts, and premature aging.

DermaE

Included in the box was an awesome derma e water bottle, some delicious Vita Coco Lemonade (soooo good!!) and some Green Superfood, which is a terrific way to get every bit of nutrition you need to stay looking and feeling healthy.

DermaE Purifying Gel Cleanser

Exfoliation is the best way to make sure all of your products are working as hard as possible. I really like derma e’s Purifying Gel Cleanser ($15.50) because it exfoliates so gently. I use my Luna cleansing brush with it no problem, and I think it would be perfect to use with a Clarisonic.  I have been working out like crazy this summer and I always wash my face with this when I get home because it is perfect for removing sweat, toxins, and bacteria.

This cleanser is pH balanced and has no fragrance or sulfates. Ingredients include these minerals and natural toxin fighters:

Green Tea delivers potent antioxidant defense, and a base of Aloe Leaf Juice revives skin with fresh, healthy hydration. 

DermaE Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask

Once a week, I use the Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask ($19.50) for an even deeper clean. It detoxes skin in two ways:

(1) Natural clays infused with Kimarine® Wakame, Bladderwrack and Activated Charcoal lift out dirt, oil and bacteria to decongest pores as the mask dries

(2) Apricot Seed Powder exfoliates away dead skin cells and captured debris upon removal. Kaolin and Bentonite Clays absorb excess oils and impurities, relieving skin congestion.

Farmhouse Fresh has Pudding Apeel to renew your skin

I’m beginning to feel like Farmhouse Fresh can do no wrong. This is only my second product from them but both are amazing plus Lisa has reviewed many before she steered me to try the brand. I hate to say she was right (I’m stubborn) but she was right. Farmhouse Fresh rules.

My new item fits in perfectly with my love of masks. PUDDING APEEL is a facial mask in a jar.

Farmhouse Fresh Pudding Apeel

Similar to other products from Farmhouse Fresh PUDDING APEEL has the most delicious fragrance and this is coming from someone who never uses fragrances. This is a Tapioca + Rice Active Fruit Glycolic Mask that smells and looks like a creamy, delicious pudding.

Pudding Apeel ingredients

Pudding Apeel ingredients

Farmhouse Fresh Pudding Apeel is a mask that helps resurface you skin. It’s a gentle exfoliator that uses glycolic acid and alpha hydroxy acids that are provided by fruit extracts. This is a wonderful hydration mask that moisturizes with honey and coconut milk, soothing green tea and honeysuckle extracts.

We’ve all heard about using AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) and how it helps to renew skin but finding a product that is both gentle and effective isn’t quite as easy as it sounds. We want the cell turnover without using anything that’s harsh. This mask is so gentle that it can be used every day without a problem. I purposely used it for 7 straight days to test that out without using any other masks and I loved how smooth my face looked and felt.

Farmhouse Fresh Pudding Apeel

When you apply this you can feel a tiny bit of grittiness which is just the brown rice micro grains that are used in the formula to help exfoliate. I don’t seem to need too much to do the job. You can leave it on for 20-30 minutes, I seem to go closer to the 30 minutes because it’s so comfortable on.

It dries down and hardens but it’s not a “can’t move my face” hardening. I can still talk and I can put my glasses back on after about 5 minutes.

Farmhouse Fresh Pudding Apeel

Farmhouse Fresh Pudding Apeel

What’s so alluring about this is the fragrance. You’ll swear you’re in the kitchen or a bakery. It’s not overwhelming at all but it definitely is fragrant. Once washed off it just makes your skin feel soft.

Pudding Apeel ingredients

Pudding Apeel ingredients

Pudding Apeel is made with 97% natural and naturally derived ingredients. The fragrance of it is natural and comes from the ingredients used, not artificial fragrance. Ingredients include allantoin (an extract from comfrey root) and that helps reduce inflamation. The tapioca assists in the silky finish your skin will feel after using this mask. Honey is a natural humectant that will condition skin while coconut milk provides moisturizing properties. While it sounds good enough to eat, it’s much better just to use this on your skin since that’s what everyone is going to see.

Power to the pudding!  — Marcia

Dehydrated or stressed skin? Then Lace Your Face with this mask by Dermovia

dermovia mask

When you love using a face mask then you want to try out a variety of types. Why not try one that is not only effective but pretty at the same time? Dermovia makes LACE YOUR FACE MASKS that do that for you. You just don’t look as scary wearing this full face mask. But what’s important is that this really works. Dermovia has 3 current “flavors” of Lace Your Face masks with more coming soon so it will be hard to choose which one you want to use. I was sent the Calming Chamomile to try and let me tell you it’s a winner.

What’s unique about this mask is that it fits your face like a glove. You can just lay it on if you want and go relax for 15 minutes or you can apply it properly like the photo shows. There are holes for ears and there is a bottom flap that you can fold up into the ear folds so that you can walk around and do what you need to without taking extra time from your day.

Dermovia Lace Your Face

This is before I got my ears in the proper slots but you can see how nice looking this mask is.

I’ve used the same mask twice. First time I wrapped it around my ears as directed and was able to compute. Second time I wanted my neck to get some of this juicy goodness so I laid down and left the flap on my neck and not just on my chin. Both times I felt refreshed, hydrated and glowing. The ingredients are excellent and I found there wasn’t a fragrance with this.

From Dermovia about Calming Chamomile: “This highly enriched formulation contains an effective yet gentle complex of minerals sourced from deep within the seawaters of Tahiti. These natural ingredients instantly provide soothing and calming nourishment by combining botanically derived Squalene, Apple Stem Cell, and Dew Grass Extract. This luxurious skin normalizing treatment provides essential nutrients that are necessary to restore pH balance and maintain healthy skin. In addition, Chamomile provides superior strengthening and reparative properties that visibly soften and protect the skin from future imbalances.”

Now tell me you don’t want to be soothed, balanced, repaired, non-irritated and without stress on your face. I’m sure you can’t. Be sure you save the outer wrapper since this can be used one more time. I put it back in the package, sealed it tightly and was able to use it again. I also didn’t need to follow with a serum after using this since the ingredients are a serum that includes hyaluronic acid.

There’s more…. you can use this one of three ways! Straight out of the package, keep it in the fridge for a wonderful cooling sensation and to help close pores or heat up the closed package in a bowl of hot water for a true spa facial feeling.

If this doesn’t sound like it’s up your alley how about trying one of the two others?

Brightening Bearberry is loaded with antioxidants and is a lightening mask that helps diminish dark spots and sun damage.

Hydrating Rose Water is for those of you who want to moisturize and fight signs of aging.

Coming soon will be Smoothing Peptides, Rejuvenating Collagen, Exfoliating Papaya, Clarifying Mulberry Leaf and Healing Yogurt and Milk. I’m looking forward to the Rejuvenating Collagen personally.

A set of 4 masks (that is 8 uses) is $55 but you can purchase one for $15 to test it out. I wish they’d sell a combination pack but maybe that too will be coming up soon.

If you’d love to visit an esthetician but don’t have time or money for it, then a Dermovia Lace Your Face mask like this will help in all the right ways. — Marciadermovia lace mask opened

Win this terrific Mario Badescu Skin Care Set and beat those winter skin blues!

So it’s -25 degrees here in Michigan…I just read on Facebook that one of my friends injured herself after she passed out from the shock of inhaling the freezing air. It’s dangerously cold, the school are all closed, and my skin is crying from all this dry indoor heat, not to mention wind burn from just running out to get the mail!

Mario Badescu has fantastic products to help beat this winter cold and they are giving a set to one lucky BIZ reader. Read on for more about the Seaweed Cleansing Soap, Super Collagen Mask,and Lip Wax – plus your chance to make this set your own.

Mario Badescu Seaweed Cleansing Soap

The Seaweed Cleansing Soap (8 0z $12, 16 oz $20) is a very thick, green cleanser with tiny bits of seaweed that help with exfoliation. It’s perfect for normal to oily skin and it is fragrance-free. It cleanses beautifully without drying out skin. The seaweed nourishes the skin with minerals while also acting as an anti-inflammatory, which is great for my irritated winter skin.

The Super Collagen Mask ($18) is a clay mask for normal to oily skin.It is a thick, pudding-like mint green mask that doesn’t have a discernible scent. The Super Collagen Mask helps firm and purify skin but what I really love is that it’s full of wonderful soothing agents like Azulene and oatmeal that make my skin happy.

Mario Badescu Lip Wax

my latest addiction...

my latest addiction…

The Lip Wax ($5) is available in two forms – jar and stick. I like the stick version because then I don’t need to be concerned with dipping my fingers into anything. This is an excellent lanolin-based lip balm that soothes and heals dry lips. It sort of ‘melts’ onto my lips, and I love the wonderful slip it gives them. The Vitamin E helps makes my lips smooth and hydrated. Lip Wax is my latest lip addiction!

Advanced CE Concentrate ($50)  This is, no question, one of the very best vitamin C products on the market today.  The packaging is perfect, an airless pump tube that doesn’t expose the product to light so it keeps it completely stable and effective.  It’s a light lotion that works great on its own, and it also plays well with other moisturizing products.

Vitamin C, when packaged correctly, is a bit of a skin care miracle because it does these things:  it’s an amazing antioxidant and it’s extremely effective for diminishing fine lines and wrinkles.  It increases collagen production, evens skin tone, reduces inflammation, and overall is the bomb in the anti-aging ingredient arena.  YBF co-creator Darrell says, “I threw out the idea of using the usual irritating and unstable Cs commonly used: ascorbic acid, ascorbyl palmitate and used to a lesser extent, ascorbyl phosphate. I also knew I wanted to use at least one stable oil soluble and one water soluble form of C. Eventually I landed on three Cs I loved and we developed this wonderful, potent and yet still gentle formula using some of the more novel and costly new Cs available. The addition of a specialized form of vitamin E and the skin calmer, alpha bisabolol was icing on the cake.”  This is a fantastically elegant formula that should be a staple in your skin care routine.

Clarity

Clarity Matcha Green Tea Facial Mask 5 pack

one packet of Clarity

one packet of Clarity Matcha Green Tea Facial Mask

Clarity Matcha Green Tea Facial Mask ($9 to $40) comes as a powder in a single use sachet, and you have the choice of purchasing individual single use packets or sets of five.  I love powdered masks because they stay fresh and keep their efficacy for a long time, unlike masks in an open jar which have a limited shelf life.

Green tea is one heck of an anti-aging ingredient as it’s both an anti-ager and an anti-carcinogenic.  French green clay absorbs impurities that clog pores and create blemishes.  It also tightens skin and gives it a more youthful appearance.  Other terrific ingredients in this mask include spin trap, Lipochorman-6, vitamin E succinate, vitamin B%, vitamin C, alpha bisabolol and thyme.

To prepare this mask, I mixed 2 teaspoons of water with 1 teaspoon of honey then mixed well with a fork.  I let it sit for about 15 minutes, then I applied with a synthetic brush.  My daughter Annie and I decided to have a ‘girls night’, which consisted of getting great skin and lots of goofing around!!  We let our masks soak in for about 25 minutes, then used a hot towel to soften the mask then remove it.  Our skin felt unbelievable after – even Annie, who already has baby soft skin, has even softer and smoother skin afterwards.  This is a TOTAL winner.
