KARYNG by Dr. Karyn Grossman makes our nights outstanding

karyng-logo

KARYNG Skincare by Dr. Karyn Grossman is the latest company that Beauty Info Zone has been introduced to; we want to further this introduction since the two products we were sent to test have been wonderful.

If you read Harper’s Bazaar, Town & Country, Vogue, MORE etc. you might have seen Dr. Grossman mentioned in articles, especially since she was named one of the five “hot derms”. Besides her dermatology business she’s also a top cosmetic surgeon with a long list of famous patients.

Her skincare was founded on her belief that inflammation is at the root of most skin problems so she developed products to address this issue.

Karyng’s active, high-performance ingredients target the key signs of aging: fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, uneven pigmentation, inflammation, and dullness to help deliver a fresh, youthful appearance. Rich antioxidants combat inflammation and help repair and restructure skin. Every product in the line contains exclusive Pro-Verte Technology, a naturally-based proprietary complex designed to maximize anti-aging and anti-inflammatory results.

 

Karyng Restructuring Night CreamLISA USES RESTRUCTURING NIGHT CREAM ($75)

There is a lot to be excited about when it comes to this thick, creamy nighttime moisturizer. New to me are keratinocyte growth factors that actually increase the thickness of the skin. Your skin thins out as you age, which is one reason why dark undereye circles become so prominent, and why wrinkles start to develop. The results reported for this cream are pretty impressive: it reduces the appearance of deep and fine lines, increases collagen by 6.8% in 11 days, increases elastin by 190% to improve firmness and elasticity within 15 days, and evens skin tone and texture. That doesn’t even include the other benefits:

Double protection against oxidative stress from UV exposure and glycation
Boost DNA repair from UV-B induced damage
Provide 24 hour skin hydration decreasing dryness by 60%
Rebuild skin’s barrier to help protect 

Karyng Restructuring Night Cream
This is a shea butter and olive oil based moisturizer that I find definitely keeps my skin moist and soft. The other ingredients are excellent – lots of cutting edge stuff that hydrates, repairs, fights free radicals, protects skin from photo-aging, creates new epidermis, unplugs pores, and evens skin tone.

Karyng Restructuring Night CreamThe Karyng Restructuring Night Cream is one of those moisturizers that give immediate gratification in addition to all the long-term benefits. Rub a small amount on the back of one hand and wait a few minutes. Then feel the difference between that hand and your other one – it’s incredible. That effect lasts until you wash your hands and even then the treated hand is still noticeably softer. Of course, you put this moisturizer on your face at night after cleansing and toning, so it won’t be washed off. That means all those wonderful ingredients are busy for hours and hours, putting the ‘beauty’ in ‘beauty sleep’.

My only gripe? It’s jar packaging, so don’t be tempted to stick your fingers in there – use a scoop of some sort. And you’ve got to use the entire jar quickly or the ingredients lose their integrity and effectiveness. If you can vow to keep your hands out of the jar, keep the lid on tight in between uses, and faithfully use this every night, I think you will be extremely pleased with the results because this is a winning night cream.

MARCIA USES KARYNG REVITALIZING EYE CREAM ($70)

Unlike Lisa I have no gripes at all. Karyng packed their Revitalizing Eye Cream exactly how one should be packaged. The light green jar is opaque with a silver twist top. You reveal the pump when you need it and then twist back to seal. The efficacy of the ingredients is safe within.

One of the first things I noticed on the Revitalizing Eye Cream jar says this “90% Nature, 10% Science”. I thought that was an interesting way to show how the ingredients are the winners here. All Karyng products are formulated without parabens, petroleum, pesticides, propylene or butylene glycols, phthalates, BPA’s, PEG’s, TEA, DEA, GMO, glutens, or synthetic fragrances. They are vegan and not tested on animals.

The two problems I most want to work on with an eye cream are the puffiness I get under my eyes along with the dark circles that go hand in hand with them. Of course I want my fine lines to be hidden but that’s not my main goal. Revitalizing Eye Cream works on all of these in a light, easily absorbed cream. I notice a lightening effect under my eyes in the morning when I awake and to keep that going I use it when I’m putting on my skincare each day.

Karyng Revitalizing Eye Cream

The ingredients are incredible and will keep me using this for some time to come.

Holoxyl TM – Tripeptide-5, and soy-rice peptides are clinically proven to reduce dark circles, puffiness and inflammation.

Eyeliss TM 3% – A combination of 3 natural and effective peptides that work together to eliminate all the causes of eye bags

Niacinamide – Also known as vitamin B3 and nicotinic acid, a potent cell-communicating ingredient that offers multiple benefits for aging skin.

The only thing better than having this opportunity to use these two products is if we could meet Dr. Karyn Grossman for a little extra help!

Sleep your lines away with RoC® Retinol Correxion products and enter our giveaway.

RoC

Did you ever wonder how RoC® skincare got its name? As an ambassador for RoC® we get products to use and give away to our readers. But I never really thought about how it was named. I assumed it was named for the Retinol that is used in their products but I’ve learned that RoC® was originally named for the reputable Parisian pharmacy, Roge Cavailles, where Dr. Jean-Charles Lissarrague (the creator of RoC®) began crafting revolutionary products that promoted skin health. This tidbit satisfies my curiosity but so do the wonderful skincare products that RoC® produces.

RoC Retinol Correxion

RoC Retinol Correxion

Today I have two sets of skincare that can be won by two US or Canadian subscribers. RoC® Retinol Correction Deep Wrinkle Night Cream and RoC® Retinol Correxion Sensitive Night Cream and Sensitive Eye Cream. One set is sure to be perfect for you.

RoC® RETINOL CORREXION DEEP WRINKLE NIGHT CREAM has a unique formula designed to work through the night—when skin is believed to be most receptive—to smooth and visibly reduce the appearance of even your deep wrinkles. It works on expression lines and wrinkles, even deep wrinkles. This night cream helps firm up your skin.

RoC® Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Night Cream

RoC® Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Night Cream

Roc Deep Wrinkle Night Cream and Retinol Correxion Eye Cream

RoC Deep Wrinkle Night Cream and Retinol Correxion Eye Cream

RoC® RETINOL CORREXION EYE CREAM is wonderful and will visibly reduce wrinkles around your eyes as well as crow’s feet. It works on dark circles and puffiness too. Now with all those benefits don’t you have at least one (if not all 4) of these problems? This contains retinol and an exclusive mineral blend. Recommended use to see full results is 12 weeks. I test eye creams all the time but when I’m in between testing I come back to RoC®. “This non-greasy moisturizing cream is especially formulated for use around the delicate eye area. It evens out the look of dark circles and helps to reduce the look of puffiness in four weeks, and it visibly reduces the appearance of wrinkles around the eyes and crow’s feet in 12 weeks.”

RoC® Eye Cream

RoC® Eye Cream

RoC® RETINOL CORREXION SENSITIVE NIGHT CREAM is specially designed for retinol beginners or people with skin that’s sensitive to retinol. This is the one I prefer since I my skin is sensitive to retinol and I use it but sparingly. It’s a milder anti-aging formula that works through the night to target and fight wrinkles with minimal or no irritation. I’m all about hyaluronic acid and RoC® RETINOL CORREXION SENSITIVE NIGHT CREAM contains it to bind essential moisture to your skin to re-plump wrinkles. This is both oil-free and noncomedogenic.

RoC Sensitive Night Cream

RoC Retinol Correxion Sensitive Night Cream and Sensitive Eye Cream

RoC Retinol Correxion Sensitive Night Cream and Sensitive Eye Cream

RoC® Retinol Correxion Sensitive Eye Cream is the perfect companion for the Sensitive Night Cream since it too was created for skin that is retinol sensitive. This is a milder version than the Retinol Correxion Eye Cream but equally effective. Be sure you use an SPF product under your eyes any time you use a product with retinol in it and will be outdoors. This goes for all 4 seasons. Our eye area is just as sensitive to the dire effects of the sun as the rest of our skin.

RoC Sensitive Eye Cream

RoC Sensitive Eye Cream

And now comes the giveaway!! We’ll have two winners – one for the Deep Wrinkle Night Cream & Eye Cream, another for the Sensitive Night Cream & Sensitive Eye Cream.

An introduction to Aveeno Absolutely Ageless with a giveaway

It’s always fun to receive a delivery from Aveeno and their new Absolutely Ageless products are a perfect addition to their already great line.

Yes, it’s their new blackberry fragranced Absolutely Ageless™ products that are a delicious mix Aveeno concentration of ACTIVE NATURALS® Blackberry Complex infused with vitamins, antioxidants, and anti-aging ingredients. If I have to have fragrance in my products then let them be yummy.

Blackberry Jam - amazingly good from Mrs. Millers

Blackberry Jam – amazingly good from Mrs. Millers

The AVEENO® Absolutely Ageless™ Collection was created to help reduce the visible effects of elastin and collagen loss, but to also nourish skin, to keep it looking younger, longer. Who wouldn’t want that?

all 5 of the new Aveeno Absolutely Ageless™ products

all 5 of the new Aveeno Absolutely Ageless™ products

Let’s start with cleansing our skin with the Nourishing Cleanser. This is gentle enough for both morning and night. I keep it in my shower because of the plastic pump. I don’t have to worry about breakage and it’s sealed well so water doesn’t seep in. This removes dirt and makeup and totally refreshes my skin making it ready for my day. It’s hydrating without being too rich so it doesn’t clog pores at all. The MSRP is $7.99 so it’s an affordable option in your life.

AVEENO® Absolutely Ageless™ Intensive Renewal Serum is a wonderful serum as it contains everything that Aveeno is known for including this new Active Naturals Blackberry Complex. It’s a thin serum that absorbs pretty quickly without leaving any stickiness behind. The top is a pump so you aren’t compromising the inside. While the MSRP is $19.99 which is a good price for this top notch serum, Amazon has it for $12.86 making it a steal.

AVEENO® Absolutely Ageless™ Intensive Renewal Serum

AVEENO® Absolutely Ageless™ Intensive Renewal Serum

The next step for me is to apply eye cream since I want everything absorbed before it’s time to put on any cosmetics. Aveeno didn’t forget my favorite product when they came out with AVEENO® Absolutely Ageless™ Eye Cream. This 0.5 oz eye cream is the perfect size for home and travel. The slant tip makes it easy to apply without using your fingers if you want. If you want to lose your dark circles and that pesky puffiness this is a great way to go. You know I’m a nut about eye cream and it’s wonderful to find one so well priced. And I don’t notice a fragrance!!!!

Aveeno Absolutely Ageless Nourishing Cleanser, Eye cream, Intensive Renewal Serum

Aveeno Absolutely Ageless Daily Moisturizer, Eye cream, Intensive Renewal Serum

Moving on we need moisturizer and Aveeno Absolutely Ageless has both a daily moisturizer and a night cream. I’m always delighted when there’s sunscreen in my moisturizer since it saves me an extra step. AVEENO® Absolutely Ageless™ Daily Moisturizer with Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 fits that bill. The moisturizer has the strongest fragrance of the 5 products but you won’t notice it after a while. It comes with a pump applicator. As with all of these products it’s dermatologist test and won’t clog pores. We need both moisturizer and sunscreen daily to keep our skin looking youthful. Whenever I’d take my 90 year old+ mother to the dermatologist Aveeno is what they’d recommend for her.

For night we have AVEENO® Absolutely Ageless™ Restorative Night Cream. This is the only product that’s in a jar. This night cream is thick and creamy having the most delicious fragrance of all these. This is much more intense than the Daily Moisturizer so you need to scoop it out and cover your entire face and neck area with it. Do NOT forget your neck. You are doing everything you can to keep your face hydrated and more youthful but it’s your neck that is a tell tale giveaway of age (example Meg Ryan at the Tony’s!). This is great for dry skin especially.

Now for the very good news, AVEENO® has kindly offered to send 3 Beauty Info Zone this entire skincare line. The US only winners will win all 5 of the products to see for themselves what a difference AVEENO® can make in their skin.  — Marcia

Reviva Labs improved Alpha Lipoic Acid, Vitamin C Ester & DMAE Cream review and giveaway

Reviva Labs #366 Alpha Lipoic Acid, Vitamin C Ester & DMAE Cream

Reviva Labs #366 Alpha Lipoic Acid, Vitamin C Ester & DMAE Cream

Reviva Labs is always striving for perfection. When they realize something is not right in their labs they work to hastily fix it. When they realize that one of their products could use something extra to make it even better, they improve it. That’s the case with Reviva Labs #366  Alpha Lipoic Acid, Vitamin C Ester & DMAE Cream. They’ve currently improved this already great product by adding Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 to it. Now to you and I that’s just a chemical sounding word but, to  Reviva Labs, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 is a small peptide which mimics the human body’s own mechanism to produce collagen. It’s used in anti-aging products as well as in before & after sun lotions plus more.

pr sample

MARCIA’S EXPERIENCE:

There are 3 words I use to describe this improved cream from Reviva Labs: soft, versatile, and effective.

Reviva Labs #366 Alpha Lipoic Acid, Vitamin C Ester & DMAE Cream

Reviva Labs #366 Alpha Lipoic Acid, Vitamin C Ester & DMAE Cream

Soft: this is a very lightweight night cream that feels like I’m applying a whisper weight cream that won’t ever smother my skin. It’s a whipped cream texture that glides on. It surprises me how little I need to apply.

Reviva Labs #366 Alpha Lipoic Acid, Vitamin C Ester & DMAE Cream

Reviva Labs #366 Alpha Lipoic Acid, Vitamin C Ester & DMAE Cream

Versatile:  I use this with a variety of other skin products both before and after application. I can apply serums (including Reviva Labs Vitamin C+ with Emblica) or any that I’m testing prior to using #366. I can leave this as my nighttime moisturizer. Or I can top it with any other moisturizer I’m using like Reviva Lab’s Nourishing Cream. It plays well with everything!

Reviva Labs #366 Alpha Lipoic Acid, Vitamin C Ester & DMAE Cream ingredients

Reviva Labs #366 Alpha Lipoic Acid, Vitamin C Ester & DMAE Cream ingredients

Effective: The ingredients in this are wonderful.

“Alpha Lipoic Acid, a super anti-free radical agent, is supplemented by Vitamin C Ester to battle past skin damage as it defends against future damage, while DMAE provides unique firming benefits.
Advanced peptide Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 has been added to help visibly reduce the appearance of wrinkles while improving the look of skin firmness and elasticity.”

For me this is another winner from Reviva, a brand that uses no animal ingredients or testing.

LISA’S EXPERIENCE

#366 Alpha Lipoic Acid, Vitamin C Ester & DMAE Cream

#366 Alpha Lipoic Acid, Vitamin C Ester & DMAE Cream

I definitely agree with Marcia’s review and would add that this beautiful cream is also affordable! It’s only $23 for the jar, and considering the ingredients I would say it’s a bonafide bargain. I love this as a night moisturizer and it also really shines as a neck cream. I can’t overstate how lusciously light the #366  Alpha Lipoic Acid, Vitamin C Ester & DMAE Cream is…it’s soft and airy and wonderful. I am completely guilty of scooping out too much just so I can also put some on my hands and arms.

#366 Alpha Lipoic Acid, Vitamin C Ester & DMAE Cream

#366 Alpha Lipoic Acid, Vitamin C Ester & DMAE Cream

It feels positively luxurious when I smooth this on at night, like I am really spoiling myself – which is always a wonderful feeling! I have found many favorites from Reviva Labs, including their Makeup Primer and the Nourishing Cream, and now the Alpha Lipoic Acid, Vitamin C Ester & DMAE Cream is added to my list of continual repurchases.

GIVEAWAY INFORMATION: Reviva Labs is graciously going to send two US Beauty Info Zone subscribers this wonderful cream so they can see for themselves why Lisa and Marcia love this so much. To enter you must do the first two options in the Rafflecopter, the rest are extras to help you win. The giveaway is open through June 14, 2016 at 11:59 p.m. If comments close (we hate when this happens) you can email us at beautyinfozone@gmail.com with your comment and continue on in the Rafflecopter. All entries will be verified so please keep it on the up and up.

Lumixyl Trifecting Night Cream is taking my skin to the next level @Lumixyl #StyleHunters

Lumixyl Trifecting Night Cream 0.2

Lumixyl Trifecting Night Cream 0.2

As an “aging” beauty blogger I’m always looking for products that will help my skin do a ‘stand still’ while also improving it. Forever young is my motto!  Lumixyl® Trifecting™ Night Cream 0.2 is capable of doing that for me and for you. This fascinating night cream has the ability to boost brightness, diffuse the look of fine lines and wrinkles, plus it helps dissolves blemishes. That’s asking a lot of one product but I’m finding that it delivers.

*sponsored post, all opinions are my own

I received this to test from LovelySkin, a website that carries only the finest brands. Sadly I’ve only had this in my possession for a week but I’m already seeing a difference. One of my skincare woes is hyperpigmentation from the no sunscreen days of my youth. It’s not that I purposely ignored that, it’s that people didn’t know how dangerous the sun was on our skin. I burnt and burnt so my mother’s solution was to put more Coppertone on me which just attracted the sun even more. I was a total freckle face as a youth and have that reminder to this day. One of Lumixyl® Trifecting™ Night Cream 0.2’s jobs is to help with the appearance of hyperpigmentation and sun spots.

Lumixyl Trifecting Night Cream 0.2

Lumixyl Trifecting Night Cream 0.2

Lumixyl® Trifecting™ Night Cream contains Retinol and is available in two strengths. 0.1 is the stronger of the two while 0.2 is what is recommended for those with sensitive skin or who haven’t used Retinol in their skincare. I have used some retinol in the recent past and loved the effect I saw so for me to use Lumixyl® Trifecting™ Night Cream 0.2 is the next logical step since it’s still for sensitive skin but stronger than my previous product. For a long time we could only get retinol products from our dermatologist but now that we know that Retinol increases cells turnover it’s a great ingredient to use in our night time routine.

At first you are instructed to use this every other night but once you are sure that your skin is reacting well to it you can decide on the frequency of use. I just started on nightly and find this to be terrific. I have to note that this is fragrance free which is one of the most important aspects of this personally. I love the packaging since it’s air tight and spill-proof. The cream applies easily and isn’t sticky at all. You can use another moisturizer with it if your skin is very dry, just apply it over Lumixyl® Trifecting™ Night Cream 0.2 so you don’t dilute the treatment.

LovelySkin has kindly offered a 25% off code for Beauty Info Zone readers. Lumixyl is regularly $135 which is a lot to pay for skincare but with this link you’ll receive it for 25% off ($101.25) and free shipping is available at LovelySkin. The code is only good through February 18th. Personally I think my skin is worth $100 and I hope you want the best for your skin too. — Marcia

Thank you Aveeno for fragrance free products

As an Aveeno ambassador I’m lucky enough to receive products from them for testing. The list of what I love from Aveeno is long and it’s just gotten a lot longer. Aveeno is used by everyone in my extended family but I’ve hidden two products from them and don’t want to share. ULTRA-CALMING NOURISHING NIGHT CREAM is one I know my husband won’t steal from me but DAILY MOISTURIZING LOTION SHEER HYDRATION in this fragrance free version is one he would. But they are mine!!!

Aveeno Ultra-Calming Nourishing Night Cream

Aveeno Ultra-Calming Nourishing Night Cream

I have been using the Aveeno Ultra-Calming Nourishing Night Cream with great success. It’s one of the softest, smoothest moisturizers I’ve ever used. It totally melts into my skin like magic. When I scoop some out I want to slather my entire face and neck with it because it’s like applying silk.

Aveeno Ultra-Calming Nourishing Night Cream

Aveeno Ultra-Calming Nourishing Night Cream

But silk doesn’t have the great ingredients that this night cream has. Aveeno is known for using ACTIVE NATURALS® Oat and Calming Feverfew® since they are two natural ingredients that are clinically proven for sensitive skin. You may not think you have sensitive skin but if you have irritation and redness then it’s more sensitive than you realize. The ACTIVE NATURALS® Oat and Calming Feverfew® nourish your skin leaving it smoother and more hydrated.

At $14.99 this is one of my very favorite Aveeno products and one that will remain in my arsenal – hidden if need be!!

Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion

Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion

My body needs hydration, especially after playing outside with my little ones and that’s where Aveeno’s Daily Moisturizing Lotion Sheer Hydration comes in. This fragrance free lotion is another newer product from Aveeno ($6.99-9.99). When this was sent I was in heaven, fragrance free heaven. I’ve been using their original Daily Moisturizing Lotion but just on my torso. I needed something to keep in my downstairs bathroom to help moisturize during the day and Aveeno must have read my mind. When this arrived it came with a small packet of tissues to do a hand test. They wanted to prove how quickly it absorbs. I applied it and instantly used one of the tissues and no particles stuck to my hands.

take the tissue test with Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion Sheer Hydration

take the tissue test with Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion Sheer Hydration

My hands feel moisturized and stay that way. While Aveeno says it moisturizes for 24 hours, I wash my hands dozens of times a day so I like to apply it often. If I apply it before bed that’s when I see the long lasting effect. Since there’s no fragrance it doesn’t interfere with anything I’ve used day or night.

I’m so happy with this line of new products from Aveeno. I hope they add to it with more fragrance free products since these two prove that they can use all of their best ingredients like their soothing oatmeal formula and feverfew and still have excellent results. Thank you Aveeno for making me so happy.– Marcia
