Vie Collection Wrinkle Dimension Hyaluronic Acid Concentrate

Vie Wrinkle Dimension

My adoration for the Vie Collection line continues…I got hooked when I started using Chrono Eyes and Mesopeptide Decollete Replenishing Cream (read the review HEREand I’ve been a fan ever since.  I’ve been testing the Wrinkle Dimension Hyaluronic Acid Concentrate ($100) for almost four weeks now, and my skin has never been happier.  Let me tell you all about this fabulous half fluid/half lotion serum that makes fine lines, wrinkles, and crepey skin go buh-bye!                                     sample

I know, when you hear ‘hyaluronic acid’ it sounds bad – like something that will burn the skin.  Actually, this ingredient does the opposite – it holds water into the skin under deep layers, sort of like deep inside a sponge, which gives the skin firmness and that youthful look.  As we age, we lose our supply of hyaluronic acid, which is why our skin sags and wrinkles.  Wrinkle Dimension helps give back some of what we are losing.

  • Encapsulated High Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid: encapsulated in spherulites and acts both in the epidermis and dermis. These spherulites maximize skin penetration and enable the hyaluronic acid to reach the dermis. The different layers of the spherulite gradually open for controlled release of the ingredients and an extended effect. The hyaluronic acid expands on contact with water in the dermis to volumize hollow areas.
  • Low Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid: This hyaluronic acid has a low molecular weight—between 15,000 and 50,000 Daltons—which enables it to act on very fine lines often related to lifestyle (smoking, sun and pollution) and dehydration. These small molecules of hyaluronic acid penetrate the skin layers, swell on contact with water and accumulate to fill out fine lines. They also limit transepidermal water loss (TEWL) by strengthening the tight junctions. Low molecular weight hyaluronic acid thus improves the cohesion of the skin barrier.
  • High Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid: High molecular weight hyaluronic acid plays a vital role in regulating skin hydration thanks to its strong water-retaining power. Like a reservoir, it forms a non-congesting moisturizing film and retains water on the surface of the skin.

The texture is a cross between a serum and a light lotion, and it sinks in very quickly.  It doesn’t have a discernible scent, and it comes in a perfect airless pump container.  I put one pump in the morning before my moisturizer, and one pump at night after cleansing.  I find that it makes my skin super smooth, plumps up my fine lines and wrinkles, and my skin really looks terrific.  I am impressed.

I recently had a pretty bad bout of the flu, and I was too sick to even wash my face.  The only thing I could bring myself to do was slather on a little serum, so I used my Wrinkle Dimension.  I looked in the mirror after a few days and while I had some very dark circles under my eyes, I was really amazed at how firm and hydrated my skin looked.  It was pale…and it was thin…but it was pretty!

If you are in the market for an excellent hyaluronic acid product, this has your name on it.  You can find Wrinkle Dimension and other Vie Collection products at select spas in the United States and at www.lespausa.com.  – Lisa

2. New Shades! Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination™ Available in 2 new shades (6 shades total!), Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination™ brightens the look of your entire eye area and delivers highly pigmented, anti-aging full coverage that never creases or cracks!

 I am a long-time fan of the original Bye Bye Under Eye™, and this new version is the classic formula along with IT Cosmetic’s Drops of Light Technology™. It combines everything I love about the classic concealer – long wear, full coverage, skin-loving ingredients – along with a luminescence that helps it conceal blue and red areas to perfection.  I have the Medium shade swatched above. I used the tiniest bit of concealer – just a dot goes an incredibly long way. I find the best way to use this is to spread the concealer on the back of my hand as my body temperature helps to warm up the concealer so it spreads easily. Then I dot it on under my eyes and around my nose, continuing to gently pat to blend it in.

The Bye Bye Lines Serum is so great that Marcia already used up her first bottle and has made her way almost completely through her second. This is true love! It’s so hydrating and contains all the ingredients to make the most of skin. “While deeply hydrating hyaluronic acid, argan oil and babassu oil restore moisture and aid skin barrier repair, vitamins A, C, E, B1, B2, B3, B5, B7, B9 and CoQ10 work synergistically with skin-brightening licorice root to restore the look of youthful vitality and radiance for your most beautiful complexion!”

4. Bestseller! Bye Bye Makeup™ Formulated to be non-irritating, your 3-in-1 hydrating sulfate-free cleanser, purifying instant makeup remover and anti-aging serum leaves your complexion appearing soft, smooth and radiant!

Bye Bye Makeup™  is a unique take on a cleanser. It’s not a cream, it’s a solid that melts immediately with body temperature, and it’s applied to dry skin like cleansing oil. I was initially very conservative with it, just sliding my fingers across the top and then smoothing it on, but I finally realized that it was ok to ‘dig in’ and get a chunk. The cleanser has a nice, light citrus scent that is very pleasant and doesn’t hang around long.  It takes off all makeup, including eye makeup, without the need for a separate makeup remover. Second, it is one heck of a moisturizer, leaving skin not only cleansed but also crazy soft and hydrated. It’s also an anti-aging skin serum. Normally, I think that any sort of treatment is wasted in a cleanser – after all, it’s getting washed off and going down the sink, right? But this one is activated as soon as it touches your skin, and it actually creates a sort of barrier keeping moisture in while also giving skin a glowy radiance. I have nothing but raves for this excellent paraben- and sulfate-free cleanser.

Heavenly Skin™ Bye Bye Pores™ Powder Brush

Heavenly Skin™ Bye Bye Pores™ Powder Brush

5. Bestseller! Heavenly Skin™ Bye Bye Pores™ Powder Brush Your game-changing brush features ultra-soft Heavenly Skin™ cruelty-free brush hair for your smoothest application, and hugs the natural contours of your features for a flawlessly airbrushed finish. Pairs perfectly with your Bye Bye Pores Illumination™ powder!

The  is one heck of a brush.  It’s soft and feels terrific, but it has enough heft to pick up product and distribute and buff in beautifully.  IT really does brushes right, and this one is no exception.  I love it with the Illumination Powder.

The IT Cosmetics™ IT’s Your Bye Bye Breakthroughs! 5-Piece Collection TSV is a fantastic set – you’ve got a gorgeous highlighting powder and the perfect brush to partner with it; beautiful illuminating concealer that comes in two new shades; a serum so good that my picky partner Marcia swears by it; and a 3-in-1 makeup remover that also acts as a moisturizer and a skin treatment.  All this for about $80!!!  It’s a steal.  Order one for yourself today – and get one for your mom, too.  – Lisa

Are you looking for the absolute best serum? Try The Jojoba Company Absolute Serum then

The Jojoba Company 100% Natural Absolute Serum

The Jojoba Company 100% Natural Absolute Serum

The Jojoba Company Absolute Serum is a big departure from my typical skincare recommendations. When I first put this on my face I was totally taken aback by the fragrance of it. The fragrance needs to be addressed first for me since I normally avoid scents other than citrus on my face so this is really an anomaly for me. What I notice is a more masculine scent, it’s more herbal and outdoorsy than I use. BUT, and this is important to note, it dissipates in a minute or two and then I notice nothing. (press sample)

Jojoba Company Natural Pigmentation Oil, 100% Jojoba, Absolute Serum

Jojoba Company Natural Pigmentation Oil, 100% Jojoba, Absolute Serum

I’ve reviewed other Jojoba Company products because I believe in the company. It’s cruelty free and uses nothing artificial in their ingredients. Actually the name of this is 100% Natural Absolute Serum.

Here’s what they have to share about the benefits of Absolute Serum:

Benefits: Absolute Serum helps reduce the visible signs of lines and wrinkles and firm up the appearance of slackened skin naturally. The di-peptide carnosine in conjunction with hyaluronic acid and silymarin, a potent antioxidant from milk thistle, work together to aid collagen production and refine skin smoothness and expression lines. Skin is relaxed, less lined, intensely re-plumped and visibly smoothed. It combines Australian Kakadu plum and lillypilly, high in vitamin C and deeply nourishing.

The Jojoba Company 100% Natural Absolute Serum

The Jojoba Company 100% Natural Absolute Serum

Now what do I notice? First I use serums daily and often layer them. I think serums have contributed greatly to the elasticity and condition of my skin. As one of the older bloggers around I don’t want my attitude nor my face to give that away. Jojoba Company products have helped keep at least my face looking younger than my birth certificate shows.

The Jojoba Company 100% Natural Absolute Serum

The Jojoba Company 100% Natural Absolute Serum

Absolute Serum isn’t sticky on my skin. Since it’s such a powerful anti-oxidant serum you don’t need a lot so the bottle will last for you. I apply this at night prior to moisturizer. During the day I’ll use it first and then apply a Vitamin C serum over it, let those dry and continue with sunscreen and moisturizer. It doesn’t interfere with makeup. If a product balls up under foundation that means it’s not good for my daytime routine. I can use Absolute Serum day or night. I’m not sure if my skin is less lined  but it definitely feels smooth. Most importantly, I believe that this pure product is doing something wonderful for my skin. And seeing is believing.  —  Marcia

The first ever IT Cosmetics Skincare TSV – New Year, New Confidence In Your Skin Collection

IT Cosmetics January TSV New Year, New Confidence In Your Skin

IT Cosmetics January TSV New Year, New Confidence In Your Skin

Saturday January 14th brings us the first IT Cosmetics Skincare Collection, New Year, New Confidence In Your Skin, and it’s wonderful. Beauty Info Zone was sent this to test and to help you learn all about it. You aren’t going to want to miss this so be sure you tune in to QVC or go on QVC.com to order. A 4 piece skin care collection with two brand new products!

IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Cream
LISA SHARES:

I love the name of this product. Confidence in a Cream™?  Sign me up! This is the very first time IT Cosmetics has offered Confidence in a Cream in a TSV collection. This day and night moisturizer seems to do everything. It moisturizes thirsty skin, giving it a nice glow; it tackles skin texture and leaves it feeling smooth; it evens out skin tone; it reduces the look of pores. Sounds like great skin to me.

IT Cosmetics Confidence in a CreamIT Cosmetics Confidence in a CreamWhat’s inside to help create all of these skin miracles is a little something IT Cosmetics calls their Anti-Aging Armour Regenerative Concentrate.Anti-Aging Armour Regenerative Concentrate, which includes collagen, hyaluronic acid, peptides, ceramides, antioxidants and colloidal oatmeal. I love the texture of this incredible mix of ingredients. It’s thick and fluffy and it feels decadent when applied. It does have a scent that I can’t quite put my finger on…I don’t particularly like it, but it’s light and it dissipates quickly. Does it work? You betcha. IT Cosmetics did a clinical study and check out these results:

  • 100% said skin was soft, smooth & infused with moisture*
  • 97% said skin looked and felt rejuvenated*
  • 94% said skin felt younger and healthier*
  • 81% said pores appeared minimized, and fine lines & wrinkles appeared less noticeable*

*Results observed in a consumer panel survey.

Confidence in a Cream is a terrific moisturizer with an elegant formula that your face and décolleté will love, especially if you tend towards dry skin.IMG_4332Confidence in a Compact™ with SPF 50+

If you are a fan of Confidence in a Cream, you are really going to love the new Confidence in a Compact™ with SPF 50+.  This is a solid serum foundation that provides all the benefits of the Confidence in a Cream Moisturizer with a full coverage foundation. Plus, it has full sun protections with SPF 50+ UVA/UVB physical sunscreen.

This serum/foundation comes in seven different shades:
  • Fair: porcelain skin; fairest of the fair
  • Light: if you have a bit more warmth to your skin
  • Medium: light to medium skintones
  • Medium Tan: if you have a warm or golden-medium skintone
  • Tan: tan skintones
  • Rich: tan to rich skin with golden tones
  • Deep: rich to deep skin with a warmer tones

Anything that multitasks is a winner and I think a foundation that is also a skin treating serum is a genius idea. Way to go IT Cosmetics!

MARCIA SHARES:

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Skin Skin-Smoothing Complexion Brush

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Skin Skin-Smoothing Complexion Brush

Now that Lisa has told you about the amazing Confidence in a Compact with SPF 50 you are going to be thrilled with the new brush that will help your skin look even more amazing. The Heavenly Skin Skin-Smoothing Complexion Brush is a breakthrough product. If you’ve had the opportunity to use other Heavenly Skin brushes through other TSV’s you already know how soft and wonderful these brushes are. The brush is custom-cut and applies the serum foundation effortlessly. The way it’s cut helps it hug the contours of your face so that you end up looking like you’ve airbrushed your foundation. While the compact comes with a sponge, you will be in heaven using the brush. This is a new brush that you can’t buy any other way!

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye eye cream

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye eye cream

Bye Bye Under Eye eye cream is so easy for me to write about because I’ve been using it for months. It’s become a staple in my life. I’m someone who uses an eye cream twice a day and love trying new ones. But I also have my favorites that stay with me even after testing is done and IT Cosmetics made the grade with Bye Bye Under Eye eye cream. It’s a very light blue unscented product. It is in a jar which many people will be negative about but not me. I use a small clean spatula to remove the cream so that I’m not interfering with the integrity of the eye cream.

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye eye cream

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye eye cream

Bye Bye Under Eye eye cream is infused with caffeine, vitamin C, collagen and peptides. I couldn’t ask for more. My dark circles couldn’t ask for more nor could my fine lines. This is an eye cream that you want in your life and on your face. This jar will last you a very long time.

Now that you’ve seen this be sure to order A287731 for single delivery of these 4 magical products. It’s a $182 value that QVC will later sell $97 but now you can buy it for $79.96 and free shipping. Don’t be late to this party since it ends when January 14th ends.

Got wrinkles? Get retinol. NIA24 Intensive Retinol Repair

I have a birthday coming up and while I love birthdays I don’t love the wrinkles that seem to come with every one the past few years. My favorite wrinkle-fighting ingredient is retinol, so I jumped at the chance to test the NIA24 Intensive Retinol Repair ($130).          pr sampleNia 24 Intensive Retinol Repair
This moisturizing serum combines retinol with niacin, which actually helps speed up the process of retinol treating skin while also preventing any irritation. It also has sodium hyaluronate for major hydration, which plumps up skin and gives immediate gratification against wrinkles.Nia 24 Intensive Retinol RepairNia 24 Intensive Retinol Repair
  • Continuous, deep delivery of Pro-Niacin® strengthens the skin barrier.
  • Pro-Niacin® is clinically shown to visibly improve skin tone, texture and hyperpigmentation.
  • Retinol increases cell turnover and collagen to improve texture, tone, smoothness, firmness.
  • Botanical Complex of Enteromorpha Compressa Extract (seaweed) and Caesalpinia Spinosa Gumactive promote a stronger dermal matrix that minimizes wrinkles.
  • Hexapeptide stimulates high quality collagen with peptides to fight wrinkles.
  • Sodium Hyaluronate is a potent humectant that hydrates skin and locks in moisture.

Nia 24 Intensive Retinol RepairI find the NIA24 Intensive Retinol Repair to be gentle and very effective. The packaging is perfect for keeping the efficacy of the retinol and while it increases cell turnover it doesn’t leave skin dry or irritated. This is about as perfect as a retinol product gets.

If your birthday count is now also competing with your wrinkle count, I highly recommend you try a retinol product – and the NIA24 Intensive Retinol Repair is a fantastic way to go.  – Lisa

New skin for the new year! Osmotics Cosmeceuticals Micro Peel 3 Step Skin Resurfacing System

Osmosis Cosmeceuticals Micro Peel 3 Step Skin Resurfacing System

Not that you need an excuse to invest in some amazing skin care but with the new year I love freshening up my routine and freshening up my skin. The best exfoliating system I have used in a long time is the Osmotics Cosmeceuticals Micro Peel3 Step Skin Resurfacing System ($86). I’ve actually been testing this for about three months now and I am so pleased with the results that I knew it had to be my very first skin care review for the new year. I am super happy to put this on your radar!                                                                                                                          samples, affiliate links

I often find that exfoliating systems with quick and real results have some side effects like dry skin, peeling, or irritation. This system is gentle enough to avoid those dreaded side effects, yet it is extremely effective and gives major results. The 3 Step Skin Resurfacing System has three easy steps that are especially perfect for those of you with skin too sensitive to get microdermabrasion or a traditional peel.

*visibly reduces lines, wrinkles, and pore size  *rejuvenates dull, stressed skin/enhances collagen  *gradually resurfaces without irritation*

After the first week you’ll see:
•  Brighter more translucent skin with a healthy, radiant glow
•  Increased moisture for softer, healthier skin
 
After 4 weeks you’ll see:
•  Visibly reduced lines, wrinkles and pore size
•  Improved elasticity, firmness and smoother, more even texture

Osmosis Cosmeceuticals Micro Peel Exfoliating Charcoal MaskOsmosis Cosmeceuticals Micro Peel Exfoliating Charcoal MaskSTEP 1 POLISH – EXFOLIATING CHARCOAL MASK – 1.7 oz / 50ml
This is a charcoal mask that deep cleans by absorbing dirt and toxins, pulling out all that nastiness from your pores while polishing and smoothing skin’s texture  Just apply a thin layer, let it dry for about three minutes, then rinse off. You won’t believe how clean skin is without feeling tight and dry.  Osmosis Cosmeceuticals Micro Peel Collagen Boosting Micro PeelOsmosis Cosmeceuticals Micro Peel Collagen Boosting Micro Peel

STEP 2 PEEL – COLLAGEN BOOSTING MICRO PEEL – .5 fl oz / 15ml
This is a light, creamy serum full of natural AHA’s from tropical fruit as well as lots of vitamin C. The extracts exfoliate skin while the serum hydrates and plumps it up, reducing the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Pictured above is one pump of product, which is all you need for your face (although I typically pump out one more for my neck and decolletage).  Osmosis Cosmeceuticals Micro Peel Protective Barrier CreamOsmosis Cosmeceuticals Micro Peel Protective Barrier CreamOsmosis Cosmeceuticals Micro Peel Protective Barrier Cream

STEP 3 PROTECT – PROTECTIVE BARRIER CREAM – .5 oz / 15ml
The last step is my favorite. Check out this beautiful snow white moisturizer…it’s so fabulous I want to eat it with a spoon. It’s a very thick cream with natural epidermal lipids that are incredibly hydrating and soothing. It also protects the skin from free radicals and the environment. It’s the perfect final step for soft, glowy, young-looking skin.

I’ve tested many fantastic products from Osmotics and I have to say the 3 Step Skin Resurfacing System is my favorite. I have had amazing results from this system. I am sorry for keeping it a secret from you for several months…but now that you know, be sure to buy this for beautiful skin for the new year!!  – Lisa

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.
