HSNY Giveaway For Your Guy: FaceLube Skin Care!
Sick of having your guy dip into your moisturizer and skin care products? Yes, while they often won’t admit it, guys too want to have great looking skin (and are often a sucker for indulgent products!) FaceLube gives your guy all the nourishment and luxury of a high end beauty product, while still being “manly” and made just for him.
This week, our HSNY Giveaway is FaceLube’s high performance 3 step system which includes a Cleaner, Treatment and Protectant. This 3 piece set is valued at $245 and be a gift your guy will love. It has all he needs to have great looking skin… and it’s simple and precise – bing, bam, boom, am/pm and he’s done! All the details are below!
THIS CONTEST IS NOW OVER. Congrats Stephanie R! Your FaceLube is on the way!
GENTLEMEN START YOUR ENGINES: FACELUBE® PRODUCTS WILL HAVE YOUR SKIN ON THE FAST TRACK
Test Drive The New High Performance Men’s Skin Care Line
Even though much ado has been made about “metrosexuals” and the rise of male plastic surgery, when it comes to an everyday skin care regimen, for the most part, “men are from Mars and women are from Venus.” The average man does not want or need a pile of products to reap the benefits of a properly maintained masculine face.
FACELUBE® GERMANY: KEEP IT CLEAN, LUBRICATED AND PROTECTED
STEP 1 ANTI-AGING CLEANER (3.4 OZ) MADE IN GERMANY. MSRP $25.00
Think about the finish on your car. If you keep it free of old build-up it will look good year
after year. And when you pick the right cleaner, you won’t strip it so much that you damage the clear coat finish. You wouldn’t use a tire cleaner on your fine leather seats, think twice before using soap or all-purpose body wash all over the most delicate part of a man’s face.
This anti-aging cleaner is a powerhouse of concentrated natural organic plant derived complex and high tech manufacturing protocols. It offers deep, effective and gentle cleaning of surface oils, impurities and dirt and helps to restore perfect moisture, balance and tone and is an integral part of proper men’s grooming regimen. Free from controversial chemicals like Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
WHY IT WORKS:
A man’s face builds up dirt, grime and dead cells. The Cleaner breaks up embedded dirt, grime and thick skin debris. It soothes, nourishes, tightens and conditions. Masculine facial skin has very different needs and texture than his hair and the rest of his body parts. Common soaps strip his face of natural moisture, leaving it dry and prone to wrinkles.
HOW TO USE: 3.4 oz / 100 ml. Concentrated.
About dime size per use, twice daily am/pm. For all skin types.
STEP 2 TREATMENT (1.5 OZ): MSRP $105.00
Treatment is like a high-end synthetic fluid for your car. Think about a car just after an automatic transmission fluid exchange. The cleaner helped to loosen the dirt and grime that built-up in the torque converter, and flushed them out along with all that oxidized used fluid. Now that the transmission is clean, you’d want to top it off with fresh new fluid – the basic nutrient that keeps your transmission shifting in high gear.
The FaceLube® Treatment is a Hi-Potency Concentrated Ultra Super Luxe Caviar Complex and Natural Bio-Peptides that work to activate cell metabolism, begin repairs on past damage from environmental assaults and stress to help revitalize and firm tired skin and defend against further damage.
WHY IT WORKS: Once a man has gotten rid of the “gunk” on his face through cleansing, the face needs nutrition. The Treatment minimizes fine lines and wrinkles by helping to restore the skin’s natural balance, rebuild collagen and elasticity, repair past damage and strengthen it against further environmental and free radical assaults.
WHAT’S IN IT & WHY: DNA-Marine/Caviar Extract – Anti-aging, anti-wrinkle, revitalizing, firming and regenerating, renews skin elasticity. It’s the ultimate deep penetrating nutrient for younger looking skin.
HOW TO USE: 1.5 fl. oz / 45 ml. Highly Concentrated. About pea size per use, twice daily AM/PM. For all skin types.
STEP 3 PROTECTANT (1.5 OZ): MSRP $115.00
Think of Protectant like a high-performance additive package, or booster for your car’s engine that works in conjunction with the fresh new motor oil that went into your car after an engine flush. The FaceLube® Protectant is cutting edge anti-aging technology that minimizes wrinkles, firms, strengthens skin structure, protects collagen and elastin fibers. Moisture enriched, ultra smooth, non-oily, protects against premature aging. Healing, soothing, and nourishing.
WHY IT WORKS: The Protectant works in conjunction with Treatment. The active ingredients in the Protectant are complementary to the Treatment. The Protectant helps further strengthen the skin’s inner structure and seals in moisture.
WHAT’S IN IT & WHY: Matrixyl 3000® – Collagen production, anti-wrinkle, firms and lifts skin. Venuceane® – Deep sea extract, anti-aging, anti-oxidant, hydrating, prevents signs of photo-aging. Ocean Gold® – Natural mineral nutrient, protects collagen, firms, strengthens, anti-oxidant. Imperata Cylindrica Root Extract – Natural moisturizer promotes healing, highly hydrating, high in potassium, optimizes and reinforces collagen synthesis and moisture absorption. Caffeine – firming, detoxifying. Allantoin – Heals, protects, softens, conditions.
HOW TO USE: 1.5 fl. oz / 45 ml. Highly Concentrated. About pea size per use, twice daily AM/PM. For all skin types
FACELUBE® GERMANY products can be purchased individually or as a three step set for optimal results. FaceLube® is having a “Model Year End Sale” by offering these products at a special rate. For a limited time, men can road test the all-new 2012 FaceLube® Germany 3 step kit for $125.00 instead of the regular sticker price of $245.00. It’s like getting a BMW for the price of a Hyundai.
FaceLube® uses natural ingredients in its formulations. FaceLube’s primary focus is anti-aging. They combine natural ingredients such as super botanicals (fruits and plants that have strong anti-aging properties) and the latest science-based anti-aging active ingredients to achieve sustainable results. FaceLube® uses natural alternatives to controversial chemicals like oxybenzone and sulfates. They do not test their products on animals.

HSNY Giveaway: L’Athene Skin Care
If you can’t find it, why not invent it? That’s just what two registered nurses did. This new breed of pure-nutrient skincare for anti-aging and challenged skin was created by two nurses, Nan Brown and Lil Bogdan, who worked with burns and severe dermatological conditions at Johns Hopkins and other leading hospitals. After fifteen years of treating skin at its very worst and studying clinical and holistic skin healing principles, they discovered that skin responds best to pure, potent, nutrient rich natural preparations. After much research L’Athene was born!

HSNY Giveaway: Natural Collagen Inventia® Age-Defying Skin Care
Spring is coming and is your skin in need of that youthful glow? This week’s giveaway will wash away the dull of winter and spring your skin back to life! Introducing Natural Collagen Inventia® Age-Defying Skin Care!
As the name suggests, collagen is key in this skin care line. Sure, we’ve been hearing about collagen for years, and there’s a very good reason why while skin care trends have come and gone, collagen has been a mainstay. Collagen is the main protein of connective tissue in the body, and takes part in the vital functions of nearly all systems, organs and tissues. 70% of our skin’s smoothness can be attributed to collagen, making it one of the most important elements addressed in skin care. As the skin ages, it loses the plump, youthful look collagen affords it.
Natural Collagen Inventia is a revolutionary new topical skin-rejuvenating skin care line now available in the US, Canada and South America. Natural Collagen Inventia is derived from rigorously inspected and select skins of fresh water planktonophagous fish. It is a highly guarded proprietary process, which creates “live” collagen that is sensitive to temperature and is compatible to the human DNA. This allows for better absorption and can also help reduce wrinkles and promote very smooth, soft skin for women and men.
This week we’re GIVING AWAY TWO Natural Collagen Inventia® Age-Defying Skin Care Products
This giveaway is now over. Congrats Vera E!
- Inventia FACE is recommended for the intensive care of every skin type, especially dry and sensitive skin. Inventia FACE increases skin tautness and minimizes visible expression lines. It increases the skin’s ability to bind with water and creates a protective film on the skin, which prevents it from losing moisture. Inventia FACE gently exfoliates the skin and speeds regeneration, lightens dark spots and evens overall skin tone. Price: $63.33, 15 ml
- An intensively regenerating and nourishing night cream. Suitable for all skin types, especially dry, stressed skin deprived of suppleness and freshness. The unique composition of the cream ensures proper nourishment and moisturization of the skin. It moisturizes, tones and firms the skin. Contains Collagen and Matrixyl, which effectively prevent premature aging of the skin, reduces deep wrinkles and eliminates minor ones. Lemon balm extract contained in the cream tones the skin and regulates secretion of sebum. Additionally, lemon balm and D-panthenol sooth irritation and reduce the tendency to irritations. The skin gains velvet smoothness, softness, as well as a healthy and fresh look. Price: $93.33, 50 ml
Dating, Living, Eating: Money Savings Tips In NYC
If you’re part of a couple in New York, you know it isn’t easy to live lavishly, especially if you’re not bringing in the big bucks! It came up a few weeks ago for my boyfriend, Dave, and me when we starting scouting out new apartments. We searched craigslist for hours on end only to be disappointed by either size, price or location! GEEZ! So, I decided to do some research on my own. My mission: find a way to live like a millionaire on a budget. Mission accomplished? You’ll have to be the judge. But I definitely dug up some great resources for couples in the city!
1) Date Night
I love getting out of the apartment, especially when cabin fever sets in! So, I started digging for fun ideas. I found out NY Magazine’s best restaurant list isn’t the only thing to explore. Dave and I are pretty adventurous so we usually want something more than just a dinner. And why not? It’s New York!
If you’re looking to get out on a Friday or Saturday Night — start the evening off with taking in a little culture. The Whitney, The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) and Guggenheim, just to name a few, all offer free or ‘pay what you wish’ admission between 5 and 8pm . It’s amazeballs! If you go to the MoMa, you can grab a cheap and yummy bite at the Burger Joint at Le Parker Meridien.
Not Artsy? That’s ok. For $10 you can cha-cha the night away at Tango Porteno at South Street Seaport AND get a free lesson! If you live in Brooklyn, you can burn some calories bowling at The Gutter (thegutterbroolyn.com) — just $6 a game. Then grab a pie for two at Fornino. These are just a few date options I know we enjoy — but if you want to check out other incredible and affordable ideas check out Time Out NY’s: 75 great cheap dates.
2) Mi Casa es Su Casa?
Whether you’re looking to rent or buy — it’s going to become the fight of your life to find the perfect spot. Am I being dramatic? Perfection may be hard to find in NY but I found a site that may help you get pretty darn close. I can’t take the credit for this though. We were going door to door in the West Village, checking out buildings when we experienced the unexpected kindness of a stranger who must have noted what we up to. And he was privy to a hidden gem. We could do it all from home. StreetEasy gives you the tools you need to tour every New York neighborhood and building from your computer THEN it breaks it all down by location, price, rent history and more. It’s all free, but for $10 dollars a month you can become an “Insider,”which allows more access to the site — and for couples looking to buy, it actually lists comparable properties to the ones of which you are interested. You can use StreetEasy to scout out spots in NYC, Northern NJ and the Hamptons.We used it to find our fab new place!
3) Get Your Inner Chef On!
I’m not a professional chef but I can say I learned from the best. My mom is straight off the boat Italian and if she opened a restaurant it would put Giada’s creations to shame. Dave also happens to be slick in the kitchen so on weeknights, we swap cooking days. What if you can’t cook you ask? Well, I challenge you to try. Each week during every season, the city has amazing farmers markets where you can purchase fresh, in-season fruits and veggies for half the price of the corner supermarket goodies… and 1/100th the price of Whole Foods! Luckily, the farmer’s market is on my block. I buy our weekly supply of fruits, vegetables, eggs, bread and sometimes, grass-fed beef all for $50.

Equinox launches BLINK Fitness: Fab & Affordable (Only $20 A Month)!
Put aside your excuses for not keeping your fitness resolutions in 2011 because my favorite NYC Fitness Club, Equinox, just made it a whole lot easier. Equinox is launching new LOW-COST Fitness Clubs called Blink. Tomorrow NYC’s first Blink will open it’s doors in Noho, giving everyone access to a quality gym at a LOW cost. With monthly memberships at just $20 a month (yes, you read that right) you’ll have no more excuse about a gym membership not being in budget.
You might be thinking, “How great can it be at that price?” Well, how about state of the art equipment, dedicated stretching areas, workout programs prepared by fitness experts, modern locker rooms, and even added perks like the “front porch” (a relaxing post-workout area where you can hang with friends, catch up on work, or grab a snack from the Human Healthy Vending machine which incidentally gives back to charity)??? Um hello, does this not sound like a place you want to work out AND hang out?
I will be checking out Blink in person very soon, but even sight unseen I have no doubt it is going to be WELL worth the money. Equinox puts out quality and am sure that anything they put their name on is going to rock! If you don’t want to take my word for it, try it out for yourself. Head to Blink’s website for a free 2-day trial. No more excuses. See ya there!
