What did Allure send out in their September beauty multitaskers box? #AllureBeautyBox

allure-sept-box

September was a good month for me with my beauty subscriptions. This is the third one I’m writing about this week. Next week I’ll write about Boxycharm and have a giveaway for the products I can’t use from these so this will be a win/win group of reviews. ALLURE BEAUTY BOX ($15 per month) is my newest subscription and I’m still on the fence about it. While I like a good amount of products in the box, I’m just not sure I need this sub. Unlike Sephora Play this has brands that sell everywhere from drugstore to beauty sites to online only sites. This month has one full size product and 5 sample sizes. I didn’t do the math to figure out the value of this $15 subscription although I’m quite sure it’s worth a lot more than what I paid.

Skincare seems to be more prevalent in Allure’s boxes than cosmetics. The August box contained more products with two brands (not products) in both boxes.

Avene Eau Thermale PhysioLift Eyes is a wrinkle smoothing eye treatment. Since I love eye creams I’m happy to have this one to try out. It contains Hyaluronic Acid which is a hero ingredient for me. Although just a regular size sample, not deluxe, I’m happy to see it in the box.

Supergoop Shine On Lip Screen SPF 50 is teeny but it’s a winner. Who doesn’t need a sunscreen for their lips and one that’s easy to carry in any size bag or pocket is happiness. Use this alone or as your gloss for the day. Last month brought me a Supergoop product that is too fragranced for me so this is an improvement.

Pur-lisse Blue Lotus 4-in-1 Cleansing Milk is a repeat brand from last month but not a repeat product. This moisturizing cleanser is one that will end up in my travel bag. One nice thing about it is that you can start with dry skin, rub it on and wash it off. Now if only I’d travel more!

GrandeMascara is something I’ve read about but haven’t had a chance to try yet. It’s said to give you major volume and length and I sure hope so. My lashes have been looking a little too wimpy lately so I can use some help. I’ll report back on it.

Orly Breathable Treatment + Color in Nourishing Nude was the one item I was looking forward to when I saw some sneak peaks. This is a new formula from Orly and can be a one coater depending on color. There are 10 colors that you could get but guess what? I don’t look good in nude polish. Nude lips yes but not nude nails. Therefore someone will win this unopened bottle of Orly Breathable in the giveaway.

Bulgari Omnia Paraiba is different than the one pictured so I’m guessing that a variety came in the boxes. This is the prettiest bottle of fragrance. I love the way it looks. Bulgari Omnia Paraiba is a beautiful blue. Sephora describes it as “The fragrance is an olfactive fusion intertwining fruits and flowers in a lively rhythm, a fragrance dedicated to a woman whose exuberant spirit overflows into pure, seductive sensuality.” Someone is going to fall in love with this.

And there we go. More products that I won’t use than I will but I’m not giving up. I’ve seen boxes that have been terrific plus I know everyone’s needs and taste is different. Hope springs eternal! What did you like about the Allure Beauty Box for September?  —  Marcia

Top Ten Sunscreens for 2015 – eyes, lips, body and face

Welcome to the 2015 version of favorite sunscreens. I’ve done both a Makeup Wars in 2013 on favorites and a Top Ten Tuesday in 2014. You’ll see some products that remain the same and some new ones. We can’t forget any part of our body and I didn’t want to forget children since I go through more sunscreen for them than I do for myself. — Marcia
1435625486_1115290AVEENO® Natural Protection Lotion Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 50  A lot of Aveeno products have fragrance so when I am sent one that is fragrance free I’m over the moon. I find myself using this for my body all the time. It’s $10.99 but I often find coupons or specials for it. This has become a staple for both my husband and myself.
1435625420_serum_510x600SUPERGOOP CITY SERUM is the one I want for my face. I buy this every summer. This is fragrance free and gentle on my skin. It wears really well under foundation and provides anti-aging benefits and SPF 30.
1435625218_eyecream_510x600SUPERGOOP ADVANCED AGING EYE CREAM* is another product that was on last year’s list. This SPF 37 sunscreen is a great undereye protectant. The applicator makes it easy to apply and is cooling at the same time. Supergoop is really a top notch brand.
1435625098_murad-invisiblur-300x259MURAD INVISIBLUR PERFECTING SHIELD* isn’t a sunscreen per se but with SPF 30 it’s great under foundation. It gives a totally clear sunscreen protection while also blurring imperfections. There are many days I use this and not an additional SPF protect.
1435625029_algenist-tmALGENIST REPAIRING TINT RADIANCE MOISTURIZER with SPF 30* is one of the foundations that I’ve been using a lot lately. Recently a friend blogged about it and how it totally changed her skin so out it came again. I’d forgotten just how wonderful it was. It comes in 4 shades and I wear it in Light. I love getting amazing skincare benefits along with hiding my redness and sunspots.
1435624971_6062_lg_1LATHER BROAD SPECTRUM SPF 15 LIP BALM is what I discovered after I started using the Lather Tinted Lip Balms. I like the spearmint the best but it’s great to try the 3 pack with citrus, spearmint and unscented since I need lip balm in every purse or pocket.
1435624891_balmfamily_510x6001SUPERGOOP FUSION LIP BALM SPF 30 is the one I like when I’m at the pool or splashpad with my babies. Even though I try not to be in direct sunlight, they love it. This squeeze tube comes in 2 flavors (mint and acai) with mint being my fave.
1435624812_1115092 AVEENO® Baby Natural Protection Lotion Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 50* is one of my main sunscreen for the kids. My granddaughter is 20 months old and she adores running around after her brother outside. I need sunscreen for them and this Aveeno is a pleasure to use. She doesn’t squirm when I apply it on her and it spreads easily. Bright sun or overcast days still need sunscreen and this is a great reasonably priced alternative.
1435624755_broad_spectrum_spf50_mineral_sunscreen_2015MUSTELA BROAD SPECTRUM MINERAL SPF 50 SUNSCREEN* is new to me and from the minute it arrived I knew it was perfect for my two little loves. This has both UVA and UVB protection in a mineral base and no fragrance.
1435624704_broad_spectrum_spf50_sun_stick.jpg.pagespeed.ce.dats3hfv_sMUSTELA BROAD SPECTRUM MINERAL SUNSCREEN STICK with SPF 50* is the one I let my grandson use. He loves rubbing the stick on himself and I finally have a way of applying sunscreen on him without a big struggle. Of course I sneak the Mustela lotion on the parts of his body he can’t reach. This is a win-win situation.

Top Ten Winter Helpers

1419727169_waxelene_lip_balm_tube_0WAXELENE Lip Balm, the Petroleum Jelly Alternative – I not only have a review of this scheduled for later today (12/30/14) but I also have a giveaway for this. I have a ton of lip balms that I can recommend to you but Waxelene is different since it’s soothing and healing plus it has so many uses. It’s more than a lip balm, it’s for dry skin, diapers, chapped lips, makeup removal etc. It comes in many sizes including this lip tube. A winner at only $3.99.*
1419727088_lip-rx-kit-800x800GABRIEL RX LIP KIT containing a lip balm and a lip scrub – a review is coming up for this kit soon. It contains a lip scrub to help banish the flakies and make your lips soft and smooth to prepare for lipsticks. It also contains a great lip balm that is great under lipstick.*
1419727038_31axlo1yjel._sy300_MIRACLE OF ALOE, MIRACLE FOOT REPAIR – I have a lot of foot creams that I use for softer feet but this is my miracle foot cream. My feet were such a wreck after the harsh water of the hospital and a month without showering that I thought I’d never get them back to normal. I slathered this on twice a day and my feet are so smooth now that it’s hard to believe. I’ve bought it several times and it’s something that’s shared by my family.
1419726913_1195078AVEENO SKIN RELIEF MOISTURE REPAIR – This is a winter savior and it’s fragrance free!! It’s for the dryest of skin which is what happens to mine in the winter. Last winter’s Polar Vortex made me rush out to purchase this.
1419726840_rocgoldday30_fulRoC RETINOL CORREXION DEEP WRINKLE DAILY MOISTURIZIER WITH SPF 30 – A long name for an excellent product. It’s not a heavy moisturizer so your skin can breathe easily. The SPF30 is great because it’s broad spectrum.*
1419726783_fvlbodybutterLAVANILA BODY BUTTER in Fresh Vanilla Lemon – La Vanila makes this in several fragrances so you can pick the one you like best. It contains 100% pure shea & cocoa butters so it’s a great winter protectant. You’ll smell good and you’ll feel soft. Full review (and a giveaway) will be coming up.*
1419726698_lemon_hc_largeBE DELECTABLE HAND CREAM in Lemon + Cream – I love the be Delectable line and can recommend all their products. I chose the Hand Cream today because while I need a hand cream all year, I’m desperate for it in winter. It contains mango butter, shea butter and aloe vera to nourish your hands and cuticles. The smell of the lemon is divine.*
1419726602_large_dnabarrierNEOVA DNA BARRIER – This is one of my favorite moisturizers for night. I love how this feels on my skin and how my skin looks when I wake up the next morning. It’s rich but doesn’t clog pores, it has no fragrance, it’s soothing and it’s wonderful. I just finished one and I’m ordering another for sure. *
1419726516_serum_510x600SUPERGOOP ANTI-AGING CITY SUNSCREEN SERUM – This turned into my favorite sunscreen. If the product that I’m using for daytime moisturizing doesn’t have sunscreen then it’s Supergoop to the rescue. No fragrance which is important to me. Gentle and non-greasy. It works great with or without makeup. I wrote about it in July and I am writing about it again at the end of December so it’s a love all year round.*
1419726422_aaa_oil_30ALGENIST ADVANCED ANTI-AGING REPAIRING OIL – I’ve grown to love oil on my face but they aren’t all created equal. This past summer I was testing one by Yes to Blueberries and while the price was right, I finally gave up on it since it was too heavy. An oil needs to be gently absorbed and not sit on top of your skin. Algenist does just that. You can use a few drops or mix it with a serum. Either way it’s protecting my skin this winter and helping with the dehydration that I see.
There are a lot more products that I could have included in this Top Ten list but these are the ones in my current rotation. They are all products I’m thrilled to count as winter saviors. — Marcia

My tax refund beauty wishlist and a way for you to win $100

Is there anything more dreaded than Tax Season? It feels punishing to me in many ways. First it takes me forever to find every item and receipt that could be used for deductions. I guess my disorganization shows every March. Then I’m worried about what I use, aka “is it legit”. The last thing I need is a letter from the IRS to make my life a disaster. My husband takes everything to our tax advisor since it can get a little complicated and I wait to answer the questions that inevitably come. A few years ago he came home totally dejected because we owed big time. This year we’ll get a refund since we don’t want to repeat that disaster. It helps to go to Tax Season Deals to learn ways you can help save a little money on getting your taxes done. Which all leads to what can I do to celebrate and spend some of that tax refund.

The answer is that I’m a blogger who loves cosmetics so don’t you think a little splurge is due? Not too big because I also want a new purse from Shopbop so I can fill it with all my goodies. My little rather large shopping wishlist is from Sephora and a few other sites. I seriously go to Coupons. com to find the codes for freebies whenever I order. For example right now Sephora has codes for a free radiant orchid makeup bag or a cosmetic mask and more will be added this month. Here’s my Tax Season Refund Wishlist as of April 1, 2014.

1. Sephora + Pantone Universe The Eye: Radiant Femme Artistry Set – 25 eyeshadows from Sephora + Pantone Universe only set my heart racing. The color of the year, Radiant Orchid, dominates the set and each of the 6 quads would work with it. This could be nothing but fun for spring and summer.
2. and 3. Nars brushes – #9 Diffusing Brush and #10 Blending Brush – I love brushes and these two would surely make me more beautiful than ever. These are high up on my wish list even though, admittedly, I don’t need them. But then again what do I need?
4. Marc Jacobs Beauty eyeshadow trio in The Punk – I constantly put these on my wishlists but so far haven’t bought more. (Not to say that I don’t have a few in my stash.) This one has that whole Radiant Orchid thing going which makes it more appealing.
5. NARS Matte Multiple in either Exumas (pink apricot) or Anguilla (ginger pink). I want to see and test these first but the reviews are appealing.
6. Make Up For Ever HD Second Skin Cream Blush – yes I reviewed three of these but I’m sure I need at least one more. #410 Coral is supposed to be the most universal shade. Don’t you think I should look at it??
7. Bite Beauty Lipstick in either Quinta (rosy pink), Vouvray (ballet pink) or Musk (pink brown). I need to see these in person to decide on the color and I hope I only walk away with one!
8. Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara – this is the mascara that absolutely every blogger in our Top Ten Mascara post raved about, except me that is. Therefore this is a necessity to buy!
9. and 10.  butter LONDON’s new LOLLY BRIGHTS collection – I want them all but after Polish Insomniac showed these I totally fell in love with Stroppy and Jammy. I had promised myself no more nail polish but I’m too weak to resist colors like this. I can’t wait until they are available.
11. SUPERGOOP CITY SUNSCREEN SERUM – this is great stuff and I want one for this summer. At $42 it’s expensive for a sunscreen but my skin loves this and there is no fragrance!
12. ARDENCY INN CUSTOM COVER CONCENTRATE – My Newest Addiction blogged about this creating a lemming for it. You mix this with your moisturizer (or with the Supergoop above) and create your own foundation. Sounds so perfect for summer.
13. FOREO LUNA – This is a cheat since I own this. But if I didn’t it would definitely be on my wishlist and probably should be on yours. I love this for cleansing since it’s gentle, effective and relaxing at the same time. It’s $199 so it’s a splurge but if you get the right tax refund this is a great way to spend it.
So now that you’ve seen my wishlist, it’s time for you to enter the Coupons. com giveaways. There are two of them. One is directly from Coupons. com and can be found on this link. The other is right here on our Rafflecopter. The winner will receive a $100 gift card to Amazon.com.

Lisa’s Top Ten Self Tanners

Self tanners have come a long way, baby. Years ago they were difficult to apply, smelled horrific, and turned you an unnatural looking orange. There are some truly great options out there today, options so great no one should be afraid to faux tan! I put my self tanners into two categories:  one night stands (these only last until you wash them off) and marriage material (these give you more committment – at least one week). Here are my top ten self tanners. The first five are my favorite one night stands and the next five are my favorite marriages.

1.  Gleam Body Radiance

Gleam Body Radiance

Gleam Body Radiance

Four fantastic color options, this one night stand is also the perfect remedy for any bad ‘marriages’.

2.  Red Carpet Kolour

Oh my this is a terrific one night stand…it makes any skin flaws disappear with beautiful tint and soft shimmer.

3.  Le Metier Bella Bronzer

Le Metier Bella Bronzer

Le Metier Bella Bronzer

The best liquid bronzer for the face and decolletage, hands down.

4.  Tarte Maracuja Rainforest Glow

Tarte Maracuja Rainforest Glow

Tarte Maracuja Rainforest Glow

A beautiful golden tan that is waterproof (hello swimming!) but not soap proof (hello one night stand!).

5.  Carlene K Shine Bronzer Body Glow

Carlene K Shine Body Glow

Carlene K Shine Body Glow

There’s a reason this is a favorite of Hollywood starlets – it’s gorgeous, easy to use, and I love the beautiful golden shimmer.

6.  Jan Marini Bioglycolic Sunless Self Tanner

Jan Marini Bioglycolic Sunless Self Tanner

I love this especially as a face tanner.  The color adjusts to your skin so it’s extremely natural looking.

7.  Supergoop Self Tanning Sunscreen Mousse

Supergoop SPF 20 Gradual Self Tanning Sunscreen Mousse

Supergoop SPF 20 Gradual Self Tanning Sunscreen Mousse

This sunscreen is also a gradual self tanner, which is a great way to build up to that commitment.

8.  Tan Towels

Tan Towels take away those tan lines!

Tan Towels take away those tan lines!

See the tan lines? Tan Towels are a super convenient way to make them a thing of the past – even if you have the tan lines of a blogger.

9.  Make Me Smooth You Glow, Girl

Make Me Smooth You Glow, Girl

Make Me Smooth You Glow, Girl

I buy this self tanner over and over because it gives gorgeous color and I can get it in any scent I want. My most frequent pick is Day at the Beach, which is a “Coconut infused scent potion that will take you back to lazy days spent at the beach.”

10.  Beautisol Summer Glow Dark Tan Body Self-Tanning Lotion

Beautisol Summer Glow Dark Tan Body Self Tanning Lotion

Beautisol Summer Glow Dark Tan Body Self Tanning Lotion

This is a marriage, all right – it takes some time but it applies beautifully, gives deep dark color, and is total marriage material.

Happy faux tanning!  – Lisa

Just in time for summer, Makeup Wars chooses favorite sunscreens


Welcome to Makeup Wars. This is the week that we are drumming it into your heads that you need to use sunscreen. Not really but we hope that by sharing our favorite sunscreens with you we can remind you of the importance of using sunscreen and using it properly. I’m not a person who ordinarily goes out in the sun. My idea of getting my Vitamin D is by walking to and from my car or sitting in the shade when I’m outdoors. But no matter how I’m getting sun, I’ve learned that wearing sunscreen and using the right amount is paramount to keeping my skin looking more youthful. Yes I envy the friends I have who look fabulous and thinner with a tan, but I don’t envy their wrinkles and I don’t take chances.

Favorite favorite sunscreens: Algenist, Supergoop, B.Kamins Sun Defense

Favorite favorite sunscreens: Algenist, Supergoop, B.Kamins Sun Defense

I divided up my sunscreen loves into two categories: face and body. I prefer to use SPF that’s formulated specifically for the face and has a moisturizing effect at the same time. My three favorites are: Supergoop City Sunscreen Serum with SPF 30

Supergoop City Sunscreen Serum

Supergoop City Sunscreen Serum

Algenist Ultra Lightweight UV Defense Fluid SPF 50

Algenist Ultra Lightweight UV Defense Fluid SPF 50

Algenist Ultra Lightweight UV Defense Fluid SPF 50

And my newest: B.Kamins Sun Defense SPF 30 Lotion. Since I’ve previously reviewed and loved the first two for their lightweight coverage I’ll tell you more about the B.Kamins and why I like it so much. (This was sent for review.)

B.Kamins Sun Defense SPF30

B.Kamins Sun Defense SPF30

B.Kamins Sun Defense is both fragrance free and oil free which is what I look for in a facial formula. Of course it can be used anywhere on your body too but I save the precious stuff for my face. This provides both UVA and UVB protection and is especially good for sensitive skin. It has both physical and light absorbing sunblocks. Did you know that if you take certain medications that it makes your skin more photosensitive? That’s a big reason to use this sunscreen. I’ve always burned very easily and never before realized that medications could have had a part in this.

B. Kamins Sun Defense SPF30 swatch

B. Kamins Sun Defense SPF30 swatch

This has a very creamy formula and comes out as a peachy pink color. I like that I can see if I missed any spots. It takes about 2 – 3 minutes to absorb but from that point on I can put on any type of foundation over it. I find I don’t need any kind of serum since this does everything in one – it primes, it moisturizes and it protects. I love that there’s never a scent even if I get overheated later in the day. I haven’t had any reactions to Sun Defense. It’s a great formula that I’m happy to recommend.

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Sunscreens

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Sunscreens

For my body I’ve started using the Neutrogena line. I was sent 2 Neutrogena sunscreens to test and now I find I have to share them with my husband. Darn it. My husband has had several basal cell carcinomas removed and his dermatologist insisted that he not only wear a hat but that he use sunscreen. Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch was on the list he received from the derm of products to use. We both use this since I slather my neck and arms with it when I’m getting dressed in the morning and he uses it for his face, arm and chest area. What’s great about Dry Touch is that it’s Broad Spectrum with SPF45. Plus Neutrogena uses Helioplex Technology that makes its sunscreens photostable. Neutrogena makes the Ultra Sheer Dry Touch in different SPF strengths including SPF 45, 55, 75, 85 and 100. I recently saw a package of this at Costco with 2 regular size and 2 purse size which I’ll soon be buying.

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Body Mist Sunscreen

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Body Mist Sunscreen

The other Neutrogena sunscreen that I’m using is the Ultra Sheer Body Mist. This is also a Broad Spectrum sunscreen. I have the SPF 100 and it also comes in SPF 30, 45 and 70. What I love about the Body Mist is how easy it is to use. I’m at the mercy of a two year old who believes he should be outside all the time. I keep my Ultra Sheer Body Mist by the door along with a Twistband for my hair. I can spray it on the back of my neck quickly this way so I can play outside with him. It’s got a light fresh mist that doesn’t stain my clothes or get my hair wet. I can also give him a quick spray without him objecting although I’m going to pick up Neutrogena Wet Skin Kids since the small pool is about to come out.

So there you have my review and long winded explanation of my favorite sunscreens. I can’t wait to read what the other Makeup Wars bloggers have to share. I’ll be outside more this summer than any other so this is vital information for me. Please click on the logos to read more. Do you have a favorite? I’d love to know. — Marcia

My favorite sunscreens 2013

My favorite sunscreens 2013

Side by Side: Supergoop SPF – Self Tanning Sunscreen Mousse and City Sunscreen Serum

The days are getting longer and the sun is shining brighter, so Supergoop is on our minds – as well as on our skin!  Everyone needs to wear sunscreen, and thankfully it’s no longer like the old days when SPF products were smelly and left a nasty white cast to the skin.  Now there are wonderful, thoughtful options available for getting your SPF and getting beautiful at the same time.  Today Lisa and Marcia tell you all about their picks from Supergoop, a fabulous line with a funny name.

Lisa’s side:

Here’s a riddle for you:  How does someone get a great tan AND avoid the harmful rays of the sun at the same time?   Answer:  Supergoop Self-Tanning Sunscreen Mousse ($38)!

Supergoop Self-Tanning Sunscreen Mousse

The Self- Tanning Sunscreen Mousse has an SPF of 20.  Not only does it provide sun protection, it also gives you a gradual faux-tan.  Normally I apply self tanner and then put sunscreen over it, so this combo products saves a step (and some money!).

love the super hygenic top!

It has my favorite fantastic hygenic top.  The product is protected from light, and it squeezes out so that no dirt or bacteria will contaminate the rest of the lotion.  Love it!!

Multi-purpose products always make me happy!

Not only do you get sun protection and a faux tan at the same time, you get a beautiful daily moisturizer.  This sophisticated moisturizer has Parsol, SP3 Complex, and Vitamin E to battle free radicals. As a self tanner, the color develops gradually, so if you use it as your daily sunscreen you will always have a natural, healthy looking glow.  This isn’t for getting a really deep tanned look. And as sun protection, it has broad spectrum UV protection with high water resistance.

Self-Tanning Mousse swatch

The mousse is actually a light lotion that melts right into skin.  It smells like cucumbers, although the scent isn’t overpowering and it fades quickly.  You just can’t beat two products in one – less time is spent applying lotions, less money is spent on products, and one application provides twice the benefit!!

Marcia’s side:

Lisa is always talking about Supergoop! It can be embarrassing when you are out for lunch and someone talks “supergoop”.  But once I got my hands on Supergoop City Sunscreen Serum I realized what was getting her so excited.

Supergoop City Sunscreen Serum

In some ways Lisa and I are like two peas in a pod but when it comes to skintone that’s where we differ. I’m like Snow White and she’s like the dwarves. She loves to be outside and loves that sunkisssed look. I believe in the power of air conditioning and my very fair skin (and obviously fairy tales). Therefore I need a great sunscreen that’s not going to leave a funny cast on my skin; one that doesn’t have a fragrance; and one that doesn’t interfere with my foundation. Supergoop City Sunscreen Serum to the rescue just like the handsome prince.

love the packaging

I too love the hygenic packaging. The pump is easy to use and I don’t end up wasting the sunscreen since I can control the amount that comes out. This is the perfect sunscreen for my face. It’s not too thick yet it provides SPF 30+ protection that also moisturizes. It was created for normal to dry skin to help protect against the premature signs of aging.

Serum swatch

The texture of this is so light. It’s between a serum and a cream. It’s not loose like a serum but it’s not heavy like a cream. It blends in quickly so that you can finish putting on any other makeup over it.

Supergoop City Sunscreen Serum comes in two sizes – $42 for the full size or $20 for a 20 ml travel size that’s perfect to keep with you. Snow White and Marcia approve of this sunscreen and we believe you will too.

Supergoop is available on their website as well as Sephora, Nordstrom, Dermstore and a slew of other shops that know quality when they come across it.
