Boost Your Energy! Espira by AVON

Avon has come out with new health and wellness products that I’m really excited to share with you . They have created “Espira” a customized health and wellness collection formulated with ingredience to help boost and promote natural energy and restore radiance, while supporting overall health.

I was kindly gifted Espira Plant Power Protein Shake in chocolate and a plastic shaker cup. The cup is BPA free. I also made a Chocolate Espresso Protein Shake with the Protein powder and love it. It is smooth and creamy and not gritty at all. The Plant Power Protein comes in Creamy Vanilla and Rich Chocolate. It is gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free. No peanuts or tree nuts. Vegan.

I love the taste! It tastes smooth and creamy and is absolutely delicious. The Protein shake is naturally sourced. It provides essential amino acids for athletic support and the maintenance of good health and digestive enzymes.

The espira collection is made from trusted, non-genetically engineered ingredients, no preservatives, no artificial colours or flavours and created by leading nutrition-industry experts.

The new collection includes items such as metabolism boost capsules, hunger block formula capsules, natural energy formula capsules, plant power protein powder, plant power protein sachets for on the go, calming capsules, vegan vitamin D capsules, sleep capsules, vitamins and minerals for men and women.

You can check out Espira Health and Wellness on or ask your Avon representative about these products.

Thank you so much to AVON CANADA for the gifted items. I’m truly grateful. I love the protein shake and highly recommend it.

Bee23 Natural Company

Hotty Balms are by the lovely Bee23 Natural Company. I absolutely love the fun packaging. Super cute and very fun! The two right jars are face balms and are glass and the Honey Love Body Balm comes in a plastic jar. I love the formula of these balms! The Honey Love Body Balm is so beautiful, creamy and not greasy. It smells like bergamot and vanilla. It is really soothing and comforting. The formula is soft and solid and with the warmth of touch this lovely formula melts like butter and glides on the skin very softly and delicately. It really nourishes and softens the skin. I absolutely adore these balms and highly recommend you try them out. Especially the Honey Love! Very nice!


In creating scent blends with essential oils not only are they free of toxic chemicals but they are more fun because they work on thought and feeling. So, it is like your very own love potion! –BEE23

I love applying the Face Balm after having my shower or bath because it is really soothing, hydrating and really helps my skin feel soft, smooth and silky. The scent is natural and the formula feels very beautiful on the skin. I highly recommend Hotty Balm.  30

Bee23 Natural Company is cruelty free, all natural, cert clean and made in Canada.





Next I have The Green Beaver Company. An incredible company that is Canadian and certified cruelty free, ecocert and zero plastic.

We believe that each of us has the opportunity to create a positive impact in this world, and for us that means creating products that do not harm animals, do not harm the earth, and do not harm you. Our philosophy comes from years of research about the harmful effects that chemicals have on our bodies and on the environment, driving us to infuse all-natural goodness into everything we do. It’s more than a philosophy. It’s a promise. -The Green Beaver Company

I absolutely love the Lavender shampoo and conditioner. It foams up nicely. The formula works amazing and it cleans the hair perfectly. It smells so wonderful! Like a field of lavender. I really love using products that make me feel great and safe. No harmful chemicals!


The Day Cream is truly wonderful! It absorbs really nicely and is not greasy. It has no strong fragrance only a natural lovely scent. It feels soft on the skin and makes my skin feel hydrated and very soft. I absolutely love the Day Cream and you should definitely check it out. It works beautifully and its great for all skin types. All natural goodness!

I’m truly grateful that I had the opportunity to try their products. Everything smells so wonderful and works really well. I also love all the packaging, it is very pretty, colourful and also not harmful to the environment. It feels really amazing using products that make me feel safe and that I can trust. I highly recommend them.


Next I have Greenplex Skincare. The packaging is lovely. Smoked glass very soft and pretty. I’m a huge fan of packaging when it comes to products and this definitely gets a thumbs up from me. This is Anti-aging skincare that feels really nice and light on the skin. I’ve been using the Vitamin C moisturizing lotion and the vitamin C eye Complex and I absolutely love them! The Moisturizing Lotion has no fragrance which I like and the eye complex has a natural scent of cucumber. I love the formula and consistency of the eye complex. It’s a gel that is very soothing.  This combo really hydrates the skin and feels nourishing. I love how light the eye complex is. It’s definitely a favourite. Give them a try! You will be delighted and content at how beautiful their products are. Great results and I’m very pleased.

The anti-aging vitamin C line is formulated to effectively fight  aging. They dramatically reduce wrinkles, repair the uneven skin tone, fade sun spots and moisturize your face.

Summer ready with Val’s Coyote’s Skincare! Feels like a tropical vacation using these products. Especially the pina colada body cream! oh my goodness! Smells so wonderful and feels so good. These are not greasy, they absorb so nicely and leave the skin feeling so good and hydrated. I absolutely love the skin care and totally recommend you try them out. A wonderful sunscreen, an incredible body lotion and a hand cream that is “kiss ass hemp cream” that rocks!
