Happy Anniversary Bionic Beauty!

by Bionic Beauty on 04.Jul.2008 · 12 comments

July 4th represents the United State’s Independence Day but it’s also the day I first put a post up on the Bionic Beauty blog.

Happy Anniversary to the Bionic Beauty blog!

In honor of BB’s one year anniversary, I’m taking a look back at lessons I have learned this past year. I know there are quite a few more, but some lessons just seem to become instinct and I cannot process them or identify the actual point that I learned the lesson.

  • Almost every high end product has an affordable duplicate.
  • Branch out and try indie and local brands. Quite often they are more natural, very affordable, and fun to chat with your friends about.
  • Samples abound! I can now travel at a moment’s notice thanks to all my sample size lotions, shampoos, styling products and even foundation! Bionic Beauty has shared 79 beauty samples in the past year.
    Stripping floors is hard work, no its not beauty related, but it is something I learned.
  • Some ladies simply rock my world. Nenette, Erin and Jen. I am so glad we’ve found each other in the vastness of this crazy web.
  • A blog requires many more hours a day than I ever expected. For a quick estimate, I spend 45-50 hours a week working on Bionic Beauty. On giveaway weeks, it’s many more since I have promised myself to send personal thank you notes to each entrant.
  • Reader comments, emails, and feedback make those hours all worthwhile.
  • Rubberized mascara brushes ROCK!

And without further delay… in order to say thanks to all my wonderful readers, Bionic Beauty will be hosting some fantabulous giveaways this month. The first of which has already launched – win a SpinLash mascara setup! Giveaways to come include Malibu Secret lotion, Milani makeup, pHormulate *and* White Sands hair care. Also in the works, highlights on my readers: Polls/surveys to share your thoughts, a “delurking day”, and a roundup of the best comments over the year.  So hangout, check back often, and join the birthday party all month long!

A Best Kept “Malibu Secret” in Body Care?

by Bionic Beauty on 29.Apr.2008 · 3 comments

From JoyceyCouture, guest blogger on Bionic Beauty:

I am a creature of habit and when I like something, I stick with it (especially when it smells like yummy coconut). So when Bionic Beauty asked me to test out Malibu Secret, I hesitated, yet finally agreed.

I’d rather opt for my trademark Hawaiian Tropic Lime Coolada Moisturizer any day than venture onto something new and… floral scented. You see, I am a Florida girl at heart. I thrive on fruity, tropical scents like cocoa butter and coconut.

After several sleepless nights, and nightmares of the Lubriderm alligators under my bed, I pushed my Hawaiian Tropic staple to the back of the cabinet (out of sight, out of mind- right?) and flipped open the Malibu Secret cap.

Promptly thereafter, closing it due to floral scent overload; jasmine, old rose, and gardenia.. oh my!

I jump online to revisit the website, needing a refresher on why I’m trying out this product again.
The “secret” ingredient is the breakthrough THYMULEN 4™. A highly purified, biomimetic peptide that stimulates the skin’s immune defenses and regenerates the epidermal profile while helping the skin regain its youthful appearance.

In a world of 904 diet pills that hit the market daily, promising a 25 pound weight loss in a day, I decide to continue reading.

The lotion is formulated with shea, cocoa, and macadamia butters, green tea, aloe vera, phospholipids, soy, sodium hyaluronate and brown algae.
Brown algae?!

After I shower and relax a bit with a much needed glass of wine, I decide to bite the Bionic bullet and open the tube again to actually use the product.

I fall asleep and then, I again apply it in the morning to put the lotion to the ultimate test: Malibu Secret versus South Florida Humidity. I must say, the Malibu Secret lotion won! I never once felt greasy; just softer and smoother.

Looking back- the night of lotion mayhem was two months ago and I’ve been using the product ever since! What changed? I eventually overlooked the fact that the product didn’t smell as beachy as the tube looks and realized how great the product simply was. (Perhaps I should also use this new insight to look back at my past relationships?)

I have seen a noticeable change in how my skin feels and looks, just as creators Katie and Erik Anderson promised. A facial quality, anti-aging lotion designed for the body. And one that is green! The packaging is recyclable and the lotion is non-animal tested.

The chemistry of ingredients will truly hook you. The 7.25oz tube of skin delight runs you $25, but worth every hard earned penny and can easily be bought online. In your pjs! More info: Order 3 or more tubes and it’s free shipping!
