Improve your kissing with Michael Todd Intensive Cream Lip Treatment

Winter brings me two unwanted problems  –  dry hands that need constant moisture and dry lips that need extra moisture. I’m working on both of these problems often but they can be hard to solve. I needed help and Michael Todd came to my rescue by sending their INTENSIVE CREAM LIP TREATMENT my way. This wonderful cream is not a lip balm, it’s a treatment which is why it’s so effective.

I use intensive cream lip treatment when I’m home. It lives in my house so that I won’t go through it too quickly. As soon as my teeth are brushed and my vitamins taken, on goes this lip treatment. At night before I get in bed, on goes this lip treatment. I have lip balms all over my house and use those too but those aren’t what I attribute my better feeling and looking lips to.

Pull off the lavender top and you’ll find this slanted tip that helps smooth the cream on. It’s cooling on my lips and the cream glides on. It’s good to then massage it in circular motions. Make this baby work for you! There’s a tiny bit of tingle at first but it’s gone within a minute. It’s nothing that hurts but I do notice it at first.

Let’s talk about what makes this so successful. Three ingredients have the most effect on this treatment. 1.  Soluble Collagen 2.  Actimp™ 3.  Hyaluronic Acid.

Infused Collagen helps plump and smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and works from the inside out.

Actimp™ is the one you haven’t heard about. It’s a peptide made from Sweet white Lupine Flower which not only has skincare benefits but also helps collagen do its job. Extracted peptides from the Lupine flower are clinically validated to strengthen the dermal-epidermal junction restoring elasticity & firmness while healing & repairing through an increase in collagen & elastin production and a decrease in damaging enzymes.

Hyluronic Acid is my favorite ingredient and I’m always happy to find it in my skincare. It attracts water to the skin’s surface and delivers nourishing hydration to skin’s outer layers.

The more moisture the better.

While this gem is on the expensive side ($48) it’s worth it to keep your lips in kissing condition. Pampering your lips with something other than a beautiful lipstick is worth a little indulgence. Your lips will thank you and so will your kissing partner.  — Marcia

My happy place for Ageless Beauty With Ulta

Ulta is one of my happy places. It’s one of my favorite places to shop and probably the store I go to most often. Ulta has come a long way since it began and now carries just about every brand I crave. It’s the closest store to my home and the parking is great so I make sure that I go there whenever the mood strikes. For the month of November they are celebrating Ageless Beauty, which I consider to be perfect for me. Almost every product on their Ageless Beauty section on Ulta.com has a great gift with purchase along with it which, of course, makes it more enticing. Following are 9 items I either have from Ageless Beauty or want. Why not find out about these and see which ones would take you to a happy place. — Marcia

1447636462_2293860__detail_?1447636462Philosophy Glowing Days Ahead Set –  this $89 set is packed and ready to give for a Christmas gift. Philosophy is one of those brands that has so much appeal and is sure to bring a smile to anyone you gave this to. It contains travel sizes of some of their most coveted products: Purity Made Simple Cleanser, Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash, Microdelivery Peel, Step 1 & Step 2, Renewed Hope In A Jar, Hope In A Jar Night, Time In A Bottle Facial Serum, and Time In A Bottle Facial Serum Activator. There’s also a FREE 3-pc Skincare Gift with any $50 Philosophy Skincare purchase which you could keep or share.
1447636398_2276871__detail_?1447636398Hada Laba Tokyo Introductory Kit – while there’s no gwp with this it is on sale for only $15.99. I picked this to share because this is one of my favorite brands. I don’t buy drugstore style skincare often but since I’ve reviewed Hada Laba Tokyo, I’ve bought every product again. I love that they have an introductory kit so you could try this fragrance free great brand. Inside this gift box are travel sizes of Hydrating Facial Cleanser, Skin Plumping Gel Cream, and Ultimate Anti-Aging Facial Mask. This is a great buy for trial or for travel.
1447636329_2293339__detail_?1447636329StriVectin Skin Renewing Favorites Collection –  is a wishlist item that I really want to try. It’s $89 but this gives you the opportunity to try this luxury skincare to see if it’s for you. Now that I’ve had the opportunity to try StriVectin myself I want to delve into it more (and more). This kit contains SD Advanced Intensive Concentrate for Wrinkles & Stretch Marks (2.0 oz.), Eye Concentrate for Wrinkles (0.25 oz.), TL Advanced Tightening Neck Cream (1.0 oz.), Intensive Illuminating Serum (0.25 oz.). There are actually two gwp with this set. In store you should receive FREE deluxe sample SD Advanced Concentrate for Wrinkles and Stretch Marks 1 oz, while online only is their FREE StriVectin 3-pc Sampler and Cosmetic Bag with any $89 StriVectin purchase.
1447636258_2286461__detail_?1447636258Rodial Dragons Blood Discovery Kit –  do I want this $49 kit for the products or the name?? I’m not sure but I read really good things about this Rodial line and what better way to try it than a discovery kit? Inside you’ll find deluxe travel sizes of Dragon’s Blood Cleansing Water (3.4 oz.), Dragon’s Blood Hyaluronic Tonic (1.7 oz.), Dragon’s Blood Sculpting Gel (0.30 oz.), and  Dragon’s Blood Hyaluronic Moisturizer (0.34 oz.). Will I look be more hydrated using this kit? Only one way to find out!
1447636170_2241146__detail_?1447636170Bliss Fabulips Treatment Kit – is a kit of products that I’ve considered many times. My lips are an area of concern as they seem to be shrinking into my face. I can’t afford shots to make them look better plus I’ve seen so many bad cosmetic surgery jobs that I am not going for that. Instead for $45 I could try a kit that contains some of Bliss’ best sellers and get a gwp of a deluxe sample Triple Oxygen Mask with any Bliss purchase

  • Foaming Lip Cleanser, to lift impurities (0.24 oz.)
  • Sugar Lip Scrub, to gently exfoliate (0.5 oz.)
  • Instant Lip Plumper, to visibly volumize (0.06 oz.)
  • Softening Lip Balm, to soften and moisturize (0.12 oz.)
1447636103_2293434__detail_?1447636103Algenist Wink & Kiss –  I love the name of this kit and I love Algenist. That makes it easy. I’ve always said that Algenist’s Complete Eye Balm is a favorite and this kit would get you a deluxe travel size of it plus it contains Complete Lip Renewal Balm which I’d love to try. For only $25 you could buy this and also get a gwp of a deluxe sample Retinol Firming and Lifting Serum with any Algenist purchase. I say you can’t miss this one! That’s a lot for the money.
1447636031_2266976__detail_?1447636031Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels ($30) are already a favorite of mine. I pamper my eyes and these help me do that. They are easy to use, travel friendly and with 8 separately sealed packs inside they really aren’t that expensive. And to sweeten the deal they have a gwp of Icelandic Relief Eye Cream with any Skyn Iceland purchase. I’d buy this if I didn’t still have half the packets left.
1447635966_2288457__detail_?1447635966Michael Todd Sonic Clear Cleansing System – you’ve heard me talk about this several times. Ulta has this in two colors on their Ageless Beauty page – this adorable floral or the original lavender that I own. But for $149 you’d get much more than the Sonic Clear System which will help exfoliate and cleanse, you’ll also receive Charcoal Detox Deep Pore Cleanser with pump (1.7 oz.), Honey & Oat Daily Gentle Cleanser with pump (1.7 oz.) and Jojoba Charcoal Face Scrub (1.35 oz.), These are not samples, these are the real deal. My favorite of those three is the Honey & Oat Daily Gentle Cleanser but I’ve used the others and they are great too.
1447635906_2278297__detail_?1447635906Foreo Lunanow why would I put another cleansing tool in here? Because these are both amazing and they are different. The Foreo Luna ($199) is amazingly gentle. It is great for a very light exfoliation but not as complete as the Michael Todd Sonic Clear Cleansing System. The Foreo Luna is one that you can use any day and every day because it’s not harsh. It massages and soothes and cleanses like nothing else. You can use it in the shower without a worry. It’s a great size for travel and it holds a charge for months on end. Plus it would make an elegant and luxurious gift for someone (including you).
.
AGELESS BEAUTY shares ideas from $8 to $449 so there’s something at every price range. The gift with purchases will only be available until November 28th so make sure you are shopping by then so you can get something extra for your money. Plus you do know that Ulta is the only site that gives you money back on purchases, don’t you? Right now I just have $3 waiting but I’ll hold off on using that until I accumulate more. It makes shopping at Ulta even better and makes me very happy!  — Marcia

When it comes to cleansing systems Michael Todd Soniclear Elite does the job

Michael Todd Soniclear Elite

Michael Todd Soniclear Elite

The number one rule to feeling and being beautiful is to take care of your skin. Every magazine article you read about beauty stresses that and so do we at Beauty Info Zone. We always remind you about using sunscreen, removing every bit of your makeup each night, and using the best products you can afford that are right for your skintype. We try to share a good variety of products in different price ranges. One of the better ways you can take care of your skin is with the proper cleansers and system. I’m here to recommend the MICHAEL TODD SONICLEAR ELITE since it’s keeping my entire body in great shape. When this was sent I couldn’t figure out how it was different than the original Michael Todd Soniclear that was sitting on my bathroom counter waiting for me every night. Then I used it and saw the difference.

The Soniclear Elite is a rechargeable Sonic Control Handle with C-Boost Collagen Technology. Inside the box you’ll find the charging cradle, handle with non-slip grips, an antibacterial face brush and an antibacterial body brush. Sounds almost the same so far. The difference lies in the C-Boost button. Press that when using the Soniclear and you’re adding a stimulating pulse/massage to the action. This C-Boost is designed to stimulate circulation to the cell renewal process and flush age accelerating pollutants from the skin.

While you won’t take the charger into the shower with you, it’s perfectly safe to take the handle with the brushes. The shower (or bath) is the perfect place to use the body attachment but it’s also great for the facial one. They actually sell a Shower Caddy for you to hang it up in your shower since you don’t need to charge this daily.

There are three speeds on this system (I’m describing the C-Boost here but there are three speeds on both of their models). As with any product I always recommend starting slow which is Low Speed. This is suggested to be used by people with fragile skin and delicate enough for sensitive skin conditions. When you are on low speed you’ll see both of the red lights blinking. Once you like that then move to Medium Speed (the top right light will blink) which is intended for those of us with normal skin. You can use this once or twice a day without worry. When you really need some extra power after a heavy makeup or workout day, switch to High Speed (bottom red light blinking). Pressing the C-Boost button will stimulate the massage action.

What I haven’t talked about is the great brushes that you’ll use with these. Michael Todd created ANTI-BACTERIAL BRUSHES that last longer and are more sanitary. These will last a good 6 months if used on a regular basis. The built-in LIFE antimicrobial protection keeps brushes fresher and cleaner. They reduce bacteria by 99.9% compared to a brush on different systems.

The Michael Todd Soniclear Elite will be cleansing and gently exfoliating your skin when you use it on a regular basis as well as stimulating collagen production. If you’ve never used a sonic cleansing machine you’ll wonder why not after trying this. For people like me with large pores it’s a miracle. Now for something fun… on Amazon ($160) you have your choice of three colors. It comes in the original lavender like mine, Cotton Candy which is the prettiest bright pink and Mint Dream, a piece of teal heaven.  What color are you choosing when you buy this? — Marcia

Here’s a little extra information

  • Clinically proven to reduce 99.9% of bacteria after 24 hours compared to untreated control
  • Water proof with 6 speed settings & 2 brush heads for customizable experience
  • Automatic timer standardizes cleansing experience for consistent results

My night time skincare starring Peter Lamas, JeNu, Stemology and so much more

As a beauty blogger I’m constantly changing skincare routines. I use each new product that I’ve received for review a minimum of 30 days and then often I have to move on to the next batch. It’s fun but it’s also frustrating at times. I had the same skincare regimen for 20 years and then upon turning 40 my skin changed and so did my attitude towards skincare. I guess now I’ve become a skincare junkie but it’s a fun job and someone’s gotta do it!!  See what I’ve been using for the past 30 days or more in this update.

1431897585_michael-todd-honey-and-oat-212x300MICHAEL TODD TRUE ORGANICS HONEY AND OAT CLEANSER -This is not a new cleanser for me but it’s one that I go back to every time I’m in between testing. I love the gel like texture, how moisturizing this is and the fragrance of it. My skin never feels taut after washing with this cleanser. It doesn’t hurt that this is a cruelty free, organic company either. ($23)
1431897670_lc11_largePETER LAMAS EXFOLIATING PUMPKIN FACIAL SCRUB –  Since I use a different exfoliator in the morning I only use a night time one about twice a week. This natural facial scrub consists of great ingredients. It has pumpkin enzymes that combine with apple and almond acids to dissolve impurities in my pores. It contains apricot grains and micro-spheres so it’s gentle on skin while polishing away the dead skin cells. ($28*)
1431897880_16683739_wid_480_hei_480?1431897880INHIBITIF FACE SERUM  gets used in special spots since the goal of this is to inhibit hair growth on your face. I bought this originally at Gloss48 but now that they are out of business I’m happy I’ll be able to buy it from Target. It’s slightly sticky and I apply it to my upper lip and chin where there’s enough hair growth for an army. It’s supposed to be used twice a day but I just use it at night so I know my outcome will be slower. Results are visible in two weeks and I’m just beginning to see some results on my chin but not yet on my upper lip. I hope to update this with good news this summer. ($19.99)

 

1431898065_wand1_10JENU ULTRASOUND INFUSION WAND is my new love. I can’t get enough of this. Right now I’m using it on three areas but I am thinking about more. I’ve been using it on my lips, under my eyes and on my cheeks. As I said in my review, it takes one minute for each section so it’s not adding on anything major timewise. But it helps tremendously with fine lines so it’s definitely adding on to the value of your skincare. ($249 but on special for $189*)
1431898117_lip-serum1_2JENU ACTIVE LIP SERUM has only been used for the last 2 weeks. Once I realized how much JeNu Infusion Wand was helping to improve my skin, I had to buy this. My lips are thin and often look parched. My goal with this is to smooth them out and have them look a little more lush. I use it all around my lips, not just on them. I’m thinking of switching this to morning use so that I can see the fullness all day.  ($22 or on automatic delivery $17.60)

1431898246_3606000498747-resveratrol-beSKINCEUTICALS RESVERATROL B E is my latest serum. It’s formulated to be used at night. While this baby is expensive, you just use a small amount. Plus by using it with my JeNu Wand I know I’m getting all the benefit possible from this. This SkinCeuticals antioxidant is a powerhouse. A full review is coming soon. ($152*)

1431898338_eye_serum_complete-510x649STEMOLOGY  CELL REVIVE EYE SERUM COMPLETE is one of two eye creams that I’m using. I switch off between this and Lindi Eye Hydrator. Stemology Cell Revive Eye Serum is a thin serum that’s very rich in ingredients “Cell Revive Eye Serum Complete incorporates our exclusive Stemology Emollient Complex – Argan Oil, Carrot Seed Oil, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Squalane, Olive Oil, and Propanediol… PLUS, Borage Seed Oil for its high level of gamma-linolenic acid, which is ideal for dry skin around the eyes.” Just look at them. One of the main reasons this is such a winner is that it contains an ingredient that helps with the reduction of expression wrinkles so it will help with long term reduction in those and fine lines. ($69*)  STEMOLOGY has a special code just for Beauty Info Zone readers. You’ll get 25% off your purchase over $100 and free shipping with the code BEAUTYINFO. This goes through June 15th.

1431898418_lindi-skin-eye-drop-300x196LINDI SKIN EYE HYDRATOR – I’m in love with this because it truly is hydrating. While this line was developed originally for people going through chemo or radiation, it’s wonderful for everyone. It relieves the problems of dehydrated skin. It doesn’t promise to be all things to all people but what it does is perfect for me. I’ll be repurchasing this when I’m done since it needs to be part of my life. ($30* –  Allison from Never Say Die Beauty also reviewed this and has a coupon code that I’ll be taking advantage of since it’s for 25% off.)

1431909666_lc13_largePETER LAMAS NOURISHING BURITI OIL MOISTURIZER is perfect for this crazy weather where I can have the air conditioning on one day and heat on the next. This lightweight yet rich moisturizer doesn’t clog pores and absorbs quickly rather than sitting on my skin. It contains Vitamin E, Avocado Oil and Macadamia Oil in addiction to the Vitamin A that’s in Buriti Oil. You’d think with this many oils in the formula that it would feel that way on your skin, but it absolutely doesn’t. Instead it strengthns your skin and helps improve the texture. A great spring/summer moisturizer that I think most skintypes could wear without a problem. ($36*)

Peter Lamas

Peter Lamas

1431898512_infinite-aloe-jar-300x310Last but not least in my night time regime is INFINITE ALOE SKINCARE. This can be used everywhere and on everyone in your family. I love it for my neck and my hands. This is usually my last step and then I hop into bed. I use the non-fragranced one which is perfect after all my other wonderful items. I don’t smell like a salad and I don’t look like an overdressed one either. ($50 for 8 oz plus a mini, other great deals available*)

The only thing I haven’t shown you is my nightgown but other than that, this is what I’m using nightly and can recommend heartily.  What do you use at night? Is it different than your nightime program? — Marcia

Makeup Wars with Voloom, Soniclear and Conair Infiniti Pro

This time around Makeup Wars is talking Beauty Tech Tools. I’ve decided to introduce 3 new ones that I’ve been lovingly using. I’ve repeated others so many times that it’s time to recommend some that you’d love to own or even give as gifts this upcoming holiday season. These were provided to me by the companies for review but they didn’t make me love them, that’s my own!

MICHAEL TODD TRUE ORGANICS SONICLEAR

Michael Todd True Organics Soniclear

Michael Todd True Organics Soniclear

What you get with Soniclear is a cleansing machine for face and body. It comes with two different size brushes unlike more expensive machines that are only for the face or even more expensive ones that do both. This covers it all while being deep cleaning and gentle to your skin.

Michael Todd Soniclear

Soniclear has 6 speeds so you can find the one that best suits your needs. When you use this with your cleansers you’ll find that the serums and moisturizers you use after absorb more efficiently into your skin.

What makes the brush on Soniclear so unique is that it has exclusive built-in LIFE antimicrobial product protection. One of the biggest complaints with Clarisonic is keeping the brush fresh. That’s not a problem now that Michael Todd True Organics has credited the Soniclear. The innovation of the brush keeps it bacteria and odor free. This is a true sonic machine, it doesn’t just spin or vibrate to cleanse, it uses true sonic technology.  You’ll want this on your holiday wishlist for sure.

INFINITI PRO by CONAIR 3Q BRUSHLESS MOTOR DRYER

At some time in your life I’m sure you’ve owned a Conair hair dryer. I know I’ve owned many. But nothing I’ve tried from Conair has come close to this Infiniti Pro 3Q dryer. It is the most technologically forward machine they’ve created.

INFINITI PRO by CONAIR INIFINIT PRO3Q BRUSHLESS MOTOR DRYER

INFINITI PRO by CONAIR INIFINIT PRO3Q BRUSHLESS MOTOR DRYER

3Q stands for Quick, Quiet, Quality and I am here to tell you that they got that right. The hair dryer dries my hair very quickly giving it less time to become frizzy. It dries equivalent to a 2000 Watt machine. It’s not noisy and it’s not heavy; all big assets. It has Titanium Ceramic Technology which uses infrared heat to gently blow dry your hair. The ionic technology helps reduce frizz and enhance shine.

I love the way the controls are situated since I don’t accidentally change them when using the dryer. It has 3 heat and 2 styling speeds as well as a cool shot to help set your hair. It comes with both a concentrator attachment and a diffuser attachment. My last dryer only had the concentrator so I had to try to find a diffuser that would fit it. Not always easy.

Conair Infiniti Pro 3Q attachments

This retails for $139 but I’ve found it for both $119 and $99 (Walmart) which makes it a good price point for a special lady’s gift.

VOLOOM

Voloom

Voloom

The Voloom is the newest and most interesting hair styler on the market. If you have midlength or longer hair then this is the tool you want to banish the flatness and add oomph as you do.

Voloom wafflelike plates

Voloom wafflelike plates

It looks like a crimping iron but it’s not going to give you that old style hair unless you want it. Instead it’s for creating more volume in the underlayers of your hair. Pin up the top of your hair, then use the fast acting unit to create layers. You don’t leave it on very long, I count to 5 and release, then move down and repeat. On my current shoulder length hair I use it only 3 times but when my hair was longer I used it about 4 times per side. When you are done, unpin your top layers and let them cover the work you’ve done. What you end up with is volume and smoothness. It lasts for about 2 days for me. I can also use it on second day hair as a way to perk it up. With that I use a heat protectant, let it dry and then follow the same procedure above.

Voloom

When you buy the Voloom HERE you’ll also get a heat protection case, a teasing brush and 3 clips that are perfect for holding up your hair. This is the gift for the girl who loves styling her hair yet seems to have it all. They don’t have the VOLOOM but they’ll love it once they do.
