Enter To Win A Sonulase Sonic Skin Cleansing Device

We’re giving away a Sonulase ($249), the beauty industry’s ONLY facial cleansing brush incorporating innovative red-light therapy to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and age spots.

LEADIMAGE

Sonulase recently hit the beauty market, and women are loving it! Cleared for use by the FDA, this “intelligent” beauty device promises to quickly become the standard by which all other facial cleansers are measured. As a matter of fact, Sonulase already is giving big brands like Clarisonic big reason to worry.

Sonulase_Product_Shot_large“The Sonulase deep-penetrating, red light technology stimulates production of collagen, the essential structural protein that keeps skin firm, youthful and radiant looking,” explains its inventor, Jonathan David. At the same time, the gentle–yet deep cleaning–exfoliating brush removes impurities and smoothes away surface imperfections. What’s more, this super ‘intelligent’ brush also cleans itself with a bacteria-fighting ultraviolet light each time it’s put back on the charger. This is the same light used to clean dental and surgical instruments. How smart is that!

Used prior to applying one of the superior topical beauty products available today, Sonulase will do for aging skin what no other home facial cleanser has been able to do. It will rejuvenate it in ways only injections like  Botox could accomplish before! Adding new colors to facial cleansers makes them look pretty, but adding proven red light technology creates a must-have beauty device for all women!

To enter to win a Sonulase, fill out the form below. After you’ve entered, tell us why your skin needs this beauty device in the comments section!

[GIVEAWAY] KORRES Castanea Arcadia Skincare Sets

KORRES has been making luxurious and effective skincare products in Greece for 20 years, and currently offers over 200 products. Last week, it launched its Castanea Arcadia Wrinkle Rewind collection on HSN, and is generously offering sets of day, night and eye creams to five FabOverFifty women. Each package is valued at $154.50.

lead imagecaption

The Castanea Arcadia collection features a potent ingredient, called Lupeol, which comes from the extract of the leaves of the Castanea (chestnut) tree, which grows in Arcadia, Greece. Until now, it was too difficult for skincare companies to dissolve Lupeol into an effective skincare ingredient, but KORRES scientists figured out how. By developing a proprietary active molecule, called HALupeol, that successfully encases pure Lupeol in a hyaluronic acid shell, the active ingredient is allowed to penetrate the skin and reach “deep into the epidermis for maximum efficiency,” the company claims.

The new collection also includes the active ingredients black oat extract and lecithin to reinforce the skin’s ability to retain moisture and bolster its structure. The trio in the new Castanea Arcadia line are:group

THE DAY CREAM ($48): Made with a blend of moisturizing abyssinia and apricot oils, olive oil esters, and sweet almond butter, the cream is rich in essential fatty acids, and vitamins A,C and E for increased hydration.

THE NIGHT CREAM ($48): Jojoba oil filled with D-panthenol reportedly gives this cream long-term hydrating power, while chamomile oil provides antioxidants, apricot oil delivers beneficial vitamins to moisturize and improve the skin’s texture.

THE EYE CREAM ($45): This cream is made with extracts of rhodiola rosea root and oats to lift, smooth and firm the delicate skin around the eyes, reduce sagging and brightening skin tone. Argan and jojoba oils reportedly increase the skin’s elasticity and improve its texture, while chamomile and apricot oils provide antioxidants.

“I have been using this trio for several weeks now, and I’m loving how smooth and hydrated my skin feels,” says FOF’s Beauty Coordinator, Shelley. “I especially like the eye cream, which helps brighten and tighten the skin around my eyes.”

BEAUTY DISCOVERY: An Exceptional Natural Plant Extract That Will Make Your Skin Bloom

Whether or not you’re a QVC or an HSN shopper, you can be sure of at least one thing: The successful home shopping channels do not continually give airtime to a single piece of merchandise unless it sells, and sells, and sells.

lead image

No matter how much one of their buyers might love a product at first–whether it’s a necklace or a handbag; a computer or a cell phone; a outdoor chaise or lawn mower–he or she will drop it like a hot potato if HSN and QVC customers don’t rush to their phones or computers to place orders. In a nutshell, these channels don’t do a single favor for any brand unless the brand is a true customer favorite.

With this in mind, HSN offers a selection of almost 200 all-natural KORRES skincare, bath, body and makeup products on its website. Created by Greek pharmacist, George Korres, and a biochemist who later became his wife, Lena, KORRES has been made in Athens since 1996. Using “the power of plants,” its scientists work closely with farmers to extract thousands of their active ingredients, and study them for their beneficial properties.

Now, KORRES, along with academic and research scientists from around the world, have identified one of the most active plant ingredients, called Lupeol, following a four-year study of 3,600 plant extracts that aimed to discover plant-derived substitutes for synthetic chemicals used in cosmetics and agriculture. The active ingredients of the extracts were studied for their antioxidant properties, UV protection and anti-pigmentation abilities.

group
Lupeol comes from the extract from the leaves of the Castanea (chestnut) tree, found in Arcadia, Greece, and has been widely used in the pharmaceutical and food supplement industries. But its inability to be dissolved prevented it from effectively being used in skin care products, until KORRES scientists figured out how. By developing a proprietary active molecule, called HALupeol, that successfully encases pure Lupeol in a hyaluronic acid shell, the active ingredient is allowed to penetrate the skin and reach “deep into the epidermis for maximum efficiency,” the company claims.

Called Castanea Arcadia Wrinkle Rewind, the newest KORRES collection includes HALupeol and other active ingredients such as black oat extract and lecithin to reinforce the skin’s ability to retain moisture and bolster its structure. The three products in the new Castanea Arcadia line are:

THE DAY CREAM ($48): Made with a blend of moisturizing abyssinia and apricot oils, olive oil esters, and sweet almond butter, the cream is rich in essential fatty acids, and vitamins A,C and E for increased hydration.

THE NIGHT CREAM ($48): Jojoba oil filled with D-panthenol reportedly gives this cream long-term hydrating power, while chamomile oil provides antioxidants, apricot oil delivers beneficial vitamins to moisturize and improve the skin’s texture.

THE EYE CREAM ($45): This cream is made with extracts of rhodiola rosea root and oats to lift, smooth and firm the delicate skin around the eyes, reduce sagging and brightening skin tone. Argan and jojoba oils reportedly increase the skin’s elasticity and improve its texture, while chamomile and apricot oils provide antioxidants.

68ff27eb-bc52-4aae-ace7-47ba556547dd“Even before opening the products, I liked the fact that the Korres creams come in thick, amber-colored glass jars, which helps protect the ingredients from losing their potency,” says FOFounder Geri Brin. “The day and night creams have light, flowery, scents. Their consistency is rich and their texture is ultra smooth. The day cream is a tad lighter than the night cream, but they both beautifully absorbed into my skin without leaving an oily look or feeling. The eye cream has definitely reduced the darkness around my eyes, as well as the puffiness.”

The new KORRES Castanea Arcadia collection is available at HSN.com beginning today.

31e6eee5-72ca-40d3-89c3-2a1e3344951aVitamins or supplements can help you maintain the health of your hair and nails!

On the cutting edge of nutritional supplements since 1979, Vitamin Research Products (VRP) offers Extension Hair & Nails and Healthy Hair Caps to help promote vibrant, shining hair and strong nails, both important signs of health and vitality. The formulas are enriched with biotin (vitamin H), inositol (a nutrient to help improve hair strength on a cellular level), PABA (para-aminobenzoic acid), and other antioxidants, to aid hair and nail growth. They’ll also help protect against air pollutants that damage cells in your hair, which can lead to dullness and dryness.

“When women ask me for recommendations on how to help their dull, thinning hair, I tell them that volumizing hair products and treatments may temporarily improve its appearance, but a supplement of key nutrients will promote hair (and nail!) strength from within,” says FOFounder Geri Brin. “It can, however, take several months to start seeing healthier hair and nails, so it’s vital to stick with the regimen!”

All VRP products are made in the United States, formulated by a team of physicians, PhD’s and nutritionists, and tested for identity, potency, purity and contaminants.
