More than a mascara…Peter Lamas Lash Masque

Peter Lamas Lash MasqueI am usually a ‘bigger is better’ girl when it comes to mascara – I want longer lashes, thicker lashes, all the drama I can get. So I didn’t think I would like the Peter Lamas Lash Masque ($22) as a mascara…but surprisingly this has quickly become a favorite of mine.

The Lash Masque actually does three things:

  1.  As a mascara, it slightly tints lashes with natural extracts, separates, lengthens, and gives a very pretty natural look. It’s not drama, but it’s way better than my lashes on their own. I really like this on weekends or when I am in a hurry because I don’t have to be careful when I apply it and it goes on quickly and easily.
  2. It’s a great primer and lash conditioner. If I am feeling fancy, I use this first then use my mascara. Then it does give me even more drama! The masque doesn’t have any chemicals to dry out lashes, so it conditions them, promotes healthy lashes, and reduces lash fallout.
  3. Lash Masque is a terrific brow gel! I have been using it every day to darken my brows and brush them into place.

Ingredients include Spirulina, Biotin, Panthenol, and natural proteins to repair, strengthen and improve lash growth and thickness. Vitamin E, Vitamin A, and Almond Oils coat each lash to condition and protect from damage

The Lash Masque is 100% vegan, sulfate-free, petrochemical-free and paraben-free. With three great reasons to try out the Lash Masque, why wait? Head on over to peterlamas.com to get a tube for yourself.  – Lisa

#NoFilterNeeded with the Peter Lamas Supreme Radiance Complexion Booster

I am always on the lookout for a complexion boost and the Peter Lamas Supreme Radiance Complexion Booster ($44) is exactly what is needed to bring a dull skin tone back to life.

I would describe the Radiance Complexion Booster as a skin illuminating BB Cream. It’s a multi-tasker’s dream with a blend of Retinol, Salicylic Acid, Mineral Complex, Conenzyme-Q10 and Vitamin E. All of these ingredients treat the skin, and the tint and light reflecting shimmer gives a wonderful glow. You can wear it by itself for a very light tint that evens out skin tone and gives illumination. It’s too sheer for me to use that way, so I put this on right before my foundation for a healthy look and what Peter Lamas calls #NoFilterNeeded pics.

WHAT MAKES 24/7 RADIANCE SUPREME CREAM SO BENEFICIAL? It’s a combination of these 4 key ingredients:

Retinol – Maximum strength without a prescription; reduces the appearance of  wrinkles and boosts elasticity for skin that looks younger and firmer.

Salicylic Acid – Exfoliates skin, makes pores look smaller, and minimizes the look of imperfections.

Mineral Complex – Provides sheer coverage while hydrating skin to leave you with a naturally luminous face.

Coenzyme-Q10 and Vitamin E – Hydrates, smooths and helps give you a more even-looking complexion.

The tint is light and should work for any skin tone except extremely fair ones. It works for all skin types from sensitive to oily to dry. If you are looking for an extra bit of ‘oomph’ along with some great skin care ingredients, this is a pretty cool product to try. 100% vegan, Sulfate-free, petrochemical-free and paraben-free. Supreme Radiance is available at www.peterlamas.com, Pharmaca and Planet Beauty.  – Lisa

    There are three products that make up the SPA SENSUALS COLLECTION by Peter Lamas. Spa Sensuals Energizing Antioxidant Body Lotion ($24), Spa Sensuals Rejuvenating Hand Scrub ($21) and Spa Sensuals Intensive Repair Cream ($21). All three products have different strengths of a citrus scent that are refreshing and pleasant.

    Peter Lamas Spa Sensuals Energizing Body Lotion

    Peter Lamas Spa Sensuals Energizing Body Lotion

    PETER LAMAS SPA SENSUALS ANTIOXIDANT BODY LOTION can be used any time you need it – fresh out of the shower, mid-day, evening. It’s especially nice after a long day because it cools you down and moisturizes your dry skin. I mostly use this on my legs which get flaky year round. What makes this so different than other body lotions is the list of ingredients. They use a blend of Green Tea Extract, nourishing minerals and Chinese Herbs to penetrate into the skin. There’s a combination of Mango and Shea Butter that is extremely rich and creates a protective barrier that helps lock in moisture. This absorbs quickly so you don’t have to worry about sticky skin.

    Peter Lamas Spa Sensuals Rejuvenating Hand Scrub

    PETER LAMAS SPA SENSUALS REJUVENATING HAND SCRUB is my favorite item of the trio. As much as I like it now, it’s going to be even better once the cold weather hits. This hand scrub is similar to a body scrub but made specifically to scrub away the rough skin on your hands and get rid of the dead skin cells. It’s a salt scrub that uses Natural Sea Salt Crystals but then softens it with Mango Butter and Shea Butter for hydration. Lots of great ingredients like Vitamins A and C, Lemon Oil, Almond Oil and Grape Seed Oil. The texture of this isn’t what I’d have expected since it’s spongy feeling when you go to apply it. It’s fun to use something out of the ordinary. Just be careful with the oils in it since you don’t want to lose any of them.

    Because of the oils you will have to rinse your hands well. What will be left is softer skin that look refreshed.

    Peter Lamas Spa Sensuals Repair Hand Cream

    Peter Lamas Spa Sensuals Repair Hand Cream

    Follow your scrub with PETER LAMAS SPA SENSUALS INTENSIVE HAND CREAM. This cream glides on. It’s very quickly absorbed and leaves your hands well hydrated. They say that this hydration will last for 24 hours but if you wash your hands as much as I do, you’ll have to repeat a few times during the day to get that long lasting intensity. This too has ingredients you want like Grape Seed Oil, Macadamia Oil and Almond Oil along with Vitamins C and E. These antioxidants help with deeper penetration to keep your hands softer and younger looking. I think I’m going to start using this combination on my feet since they could use the exfoliation from the scrub and the hydration from the hand cream.

The Spa Sensuals line is sold both at the Peter Lamas website and drugstore.com.  I personally like to buy at drugstore.com because I can use ebates as well earn drugstore.com dollars. While these 3 products are ones you’ll want to start using now, I think when winter comes you’ll be even more grateful to have learned about them. — Marcia

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*)

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
