New Skincare & Beauty AVON Canada

Happy Sunday! I’m very excited to bring you new and exciting products from AVON. I’m always thrilled to share what’s new and happening with Avon Canada and I hope you feel the same way.¬†Winter has my skin feeling very dry and I’m loving the Avon Moisture Therapy Ultra Hydration and Daily Skin Defense In-Shower Body lotions. These are fabulous because they are time savers. Love the fact I can shower and be done.

The Moisture Therapy in-shower lotion comes in four different lotions. Daily Skin Defense, Ultra Hydration, Calming Relief, Intensive Healing & Repair. The two that I’ve been loving and using are the ULTRA HYDRATION Shea Butter and the DAILY SKIN DEFENSE with Vitamin A,C,E, B5 for Sensitive skin. Really wonderful and also Dermatologist Tested. These are $10.00 each. TIP: These don’t foam up like a shower gel. This formula is best applied with your hands. Not a sponge or loofa. Apply it like you would a cream and then rinse.

Clear Your Mind and Lift Your Spirit!

header sun blue

“When the ancient Greeks wanted to be closer to the spirit, they bathed. In the earliest Greek mythology, the ancestral Earth gave birth to Heaven and to Pontos, the realm of the saltwater sea. Earth then coupled with Heaven, conceiving Okeanos, the father of all springs and rivers. Thus, the idea of heaven remained imminent within all waters.” -The Art of Bath by Sara Slavin and Karl Petzke

Having time to relax as a mother is essential and very important to me. I can’t function without having a relaxing bath every week. Even if it’s 20 minutes I find it very important to my health and wellness. Today I’ll be sharing a lot of ¬†beautiful bathing products such as salts, oils and soaps.

Some people have said to me “I have no time to take a bath” but I disagree. There is always a way to make time for your self because you deserve it and you come first. You need to relax and clear your mind and soul of stress and worry. I challenge you to take a bath at least once a week.

“The first known bathtub was found in Crete in the great palace at Knossos, most likely built for the legendary King Minos around 1700 B.C. The Minoans invented impressive technologies that provided water for this tub, including a system of interlocking terra-cotta pipes.” -Sara Slavin

My ritual to having a relaxing and calming bath is as follows:  I set the bathroom up with candles and relaxing music. Usually spa music or classical. The candle of choice is Canyon Mist by AVON.


I fill the tub up with warm water and I use lot’s of relaxing epsom salts. I’ve been enjoying Dr. Teal’s Pink Himalayan Mineral Soak. Smells incredible and really helps restore and replenish.

Mineral Soak and Foaming Bath available at Shoppers Drug Mart.

 Foaming Bath also available at Walmart SRP: $9.99 each 

Facts and benefits

Mineral Soak: Refreshes skin and helps remove toxins while the natural Epsom Salt soothes tired achy muscles.


The salts really help with irritated skin and aching muscles. ¬†I also add Dr. Teal’s Pink Himalayan Foaming bath because I love a lot of frothy bubbles.

Foaming Bath: The Pink Himalayan Restore and Replenish line also includes a Foaming Bath solution that creates long-lasting bubbles to transform an ordinary bath into a relaxing spa experience while gently cleansing skin. The addition of Pink Himalayan Salt helps to replenish and recharge your body while also nourishing your skin with minerals.


Sometimes I love adding bath fizzies. Lately I’ve been enjoying the Bodycology Cherry Blossoms. They smell so lovely. ¬†They are available at Walmart and are¬†SRP: $6.97.

Facts and Benefits:

Each fizzy delivers a fun, pampering experience by adding fragrant effervescence to the bath. Enriched with hydrating Vitamin E to leave skin feeling silky smooth


I love adding oils to my bath as well. ¬†Oils really help my hair and skin feel moisturized, soft, silky, and hydrated. ¬†I’ve been using natural rose oil, avocado oil, almond oil, coconut oil and jojoba oil. My favourite brand is NOW Solutions. I love their oils.

I really enjoy lathering with soap bars. A really lovely soap bar is The Yardley English Rose. It is really wonderful. It smells so good and doesn’t dry my skin.



ENGLISH ROSE is a refreshing, light floral fragrance with sparkling citrus and rose top notes and a heart subtly combining rosebud, magnolia, violet and cassis with warm woody notes, whilst patchouli and musk add velvety tones to the base.


I lay back and close my eyes and relax. I take deep breaths and exhale all the negative and stressful thoughts. I clear my mind and focus on the music. I relax and I don’t think of anything and I do nothing. It is peaceful because everyone is sleeping. No one is there to disturb me. The bath enhances my senses, soothes me, clears my mind and lifts my spirit! As the water drains I picture all my worries and stress draining down and away from me.

I’ve been loving bodycology creamy vanilla trio. If you love vanilla as much as I do you will love this trio. They smell like a dessert! So sweet and really beautiful. I absolutely love this formula. It really makes me feel good. The body wash lathers so beautifully and the moisturizing body cream is so soft and creamy. It absorbs perfectly and smells like vanilla cupcakes. Top it off the body spray is nice and light. I’m in love with this collection! ¬†On my June Favourites for sure!
