Hawaiian Tropic Expands its Product Line #AlohaTherapy #HawaiianTropic #WhatsInYourBag #ad

Longer, sunshine-filled days are finally here.  I won’t lie; I couldn’t wait for much longer and actually took a week-long vacation to Aruba recently.  I needed sea, sand, and lots of sunshine!  It wasn’t difficult to ditch our winter coats.  That’s for sure!

Disclosure: I have not  been compensated to share this post. The opinions on this blog are my own. 

If there’s one sun care brand that I’ve used throughout most of my years it’s Hawaiian Tropic®.  They offer a broad selection of sun care products that are effective and affordable.  Over the years, Hawaiian Tropic® expanded its product line to include Silk Hydration Sunscreen.  For me, it meant sun care that was quick and easy to apply, a great scent, and great UVA and UVB protection that left my skin feeling super soft.  Can it get any better?  No way!  Or can it?Just when you thought “there is no possible way to come up with something new”, Hawaiian Tropic® does it again!  This year, the NEW products** include:

  • Hawaiian Tropic® Silk Hydration Weightless™ FACE Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30
  • Hawaiian Tropic® Silk Hydration Weightless™ Clear Sunscreen Spray SPF 30
  • Hawaiian Tropic® Island Sport® High Performance Sunscreen Lotion SPF 15 & SPF 30
  • Hawaiian Tropic® Island Sport® Clear Spray SPF 15 & SPF 30

Aloha!  That’s pampering and protection delivered in an exotic island botanical scent that will hydrate your skin.  I’m seriously in love.

Let’s face it, sun care isn’t just a vacation thing.  Oh no.  Sun care is part of the daily beauty routine.  If it isn’t for you, it should be.  In fact, Hawaiian Tropic® is recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation for daily use so don’t shy away!

One of the key features that I appreciate the most; aside from the broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection, is that Hawaiian Tropic® isn’t greasy.  (Thank You)

Go on, get on out there and enjoy the sun!  Get your ‘Aloha Therapy’ on!

Brighter Whiter Smiles #ChurchAndDwight

National Oral Health Care month acts as the perfect annual reminder that it’s important to pay special attention to our teeth and our overall oral hygiene, which can have a tremendous impact on our overall health.

Did you know that poor oral health can lead to gum disease, which left untreated can lead to the loss of teeth… do I need to go on?

IMG_0813To get you started on the path towards a brighter, whiter smile, I suggest the following tips:

For the kids:
Children often look at mom and dad as role models, so make sure you lead by example and talk to them about the importance of taking care of their teeth and gums!
– Suggest using a timer or a song to ensure that the kiddies are brushing for as long as they’re supposed to. You can even make it a family activity by doing it all together.
– Give your kiddos a bonus for brushing. A sticker chart that keeps track of their brushing habits is a great way to give them an incentive to brush.
– Introduce a toothpaste and brush that features one of your kids favourite characters – such as the Orajel™ Spiderman™ and My Little Pony™ Anticavity Fluoride Toothpaste and the Kids Spinbrush™ My Little Pony™ Battery Toothbrush. It keeps things exciting while practicing healthy habits!

I used to get my daughter to sing a song, in her head while she brushed.  When she finished the entire song, she could rinse.

For adults:
Make sure you’re brushing and flossing at least twice a day to achieve optimal oral health.
– The Canadian Dental Association recommends replacing your toothbrush or toothbrush head every three months or sooner if it becomes worn, for an optimal clean.
– Use a battery-powered toothbrush with sonic pulsating action. For example, the new
Arm & Hammer™ Sonic Pulse Battery Toothbrush is clinically proven to remove 2X more plaque versus a manual toothbrush. This toothbrush has a slim, ergonomic handle, and comes with a replaceable head and battery!

– If you can’t resist desserts and candy, pay attention! Foods that contains a lot of sugar can stain your teeth and soften tooth enamel. I recommend Arm & Hammer™ Truly Radiant™ Clean & Fresh™ Toothpaste for enamel safe whitening and lasting freshness plus it prevents tartar build up!

This month make it your goal to wear a smile you’re proud of. How are you practicing good oral health habits?  I’ve purchased  new travel size toothbrushes to replace our current ones … you know, it’s the ones we carry with us wherever we go; such as school and work.  There’s nothing wrong with brushing after eating lunch.

Metamucil’s Newest Product #Metamucil #Metawellness #CrushCravings #ad

On February 14th, I attended Metamucil’s Newest Product launch:  Meta Appetite Control (in orange).  For now, the only flavour is orange; however, more flavours should be coming in the future.  I know I’m a little behind on my posts; however, since I have been health challenged as of late I think it’s so a propos to share my experience with you now.

Disclosure: I have been compensated to share this post. The opinions on this blog are my own.

The latest addition to the Metamucil wellness line of products is actually very helpful.  Various insights were shared into healthy snacking and tips to help manage our appetite.  All of these helpful tips are great ways for us to incorporate small changes into our day-to-day lives to make them healthier.– Made with 100% natural source psyllium fibre
– Helps to temporarily suppress appetite when taken prior to a meal
– From the makers of Metamucil, the #1 Doctor Recommended Fibre BrandMost importantly, for me, it helps to take control of my cravings!  While at the product launch, we had the opportunity to make our own smoothies.  I loved mine!  I actually combined most of the ingredients of the two recipes being offered … I think I was the most creative because I went ‘out of the box’ and did my own thing.From our group of influencers, all you could hear was “mmmm”, “yum”, and “oh my goodness”.  Certainly not what you would imagine after ingesting fibre!I look forward to continuing on my new healthy path, and hope you try it too.


Take 2 rounded teaspoons (14.0 g) OR 6 level teaspoons (14.0 g) in 240 mL liquid with meals, up to 3 times daily.  (Note: for occasional use only)
