Superior Moisture With New Olay Body Wash #ad

It’s not uncommon to have extremely dry skin.  The weather, indoor heat, and showers all play a part in drying out our skin.  New Olay Ultra Moisture Body Wash, launched earlier this year, and is available where Olay products are sold.  Do I think you should try it?  It’s an upgraded, advanced formula that works so …. absolutely!

You know the routine.  First you shower using body wash, and then you lather your body with moisturizer once you’re dry.  I’ll confess; I don’t always moisturize due to lack of time; however, my end result is drier skin.  I just want one product to take care of my needs, and I think I’ve found it.New Olay Ultra Moisture Body Wash is a (new) body wash that is effective, smells wonderful, and costs under $10 … it absorbs and helps combat dryness at the source, rather than just sitting on the skin’s surface, and doesn’t leave a coated feel.

  •  specially formulated with petrolatum
  • dermatologist-recommended moisturizer that nourishes
  • contains Pro-Glycerin, a naturally derived essence from sunflowers (helps to penetrate skin faster than ever before)
  • leaves skin light and silky
  • cleans and locks in moisture

This means healthy looking skin that feels clean and smooth all from one product!

Personally I found that the texture of the body wash to be luxuriously thick and creamy, the scent to be mild and pleasant, and that it lathers well (especially with a body puff or loofah).  I can feel the slippery-smooth-feeling all day long and I love it!  At first, it looks like a lotion but quickly turns into a gentle foam while you lather.  Once out of the shower, you might opt to use a body lotion for added moisture; however, with New Olay Ultra Moisture Body Wash you can choose not to.  On a busy day, I did just this and noticed that I really didn’t need the added moisture … my skin was hydrated enough.

Overall, what I love most; aside from the amazing scent and effectiveness, is that it rinses clean and is residue free.  It’s exactly how I want my body wash to be.

3 Ways to Recover Quickly from March Break #ChurchAndDwight #ad

March Break always feels like a whirlwind; or at least it used to!  My daughter is now in College so her break was in February … don’t worry, my tips still apply!  Whether we go somewhere sunny, or have a stay-cation doing activities with the family, everyone is always a little exhausted when the week is over (especially me)! Since we don’t always have time to recover before the next week starts, and we have to be back in action at school and work, I make sure I have a couple of revival tricks up my sleeve for us to feel our best.  As best as best can possibly be!

Other than helping my kid get as much rest as possible, GRAVOL Kids™ Dye Free Quick Dissolve Chewables always came in handy when my kid was feeling woozy during or after an active week. They help prevent and treat nausea, vomiting and dizziness from motion sickness, so I used to keep an 18-count pack in my purse in case she got car sick, feelt nauseous on plane rides or ate too much when we went out for dinner. Sometimes half a chewable is all she needed to get back to enjoying the day, but if she really wasn’t feeling well, I gave her one tablet every six to eight hours, as needed.Dosing amounts can vary by age group, so always read the dosage instructions carefully to figure out what’s best for your little ones.  These chewables have a yummy orange flavour (that taste way better than what I had when I was a kid!) and dissolve so quickly that your kid likely won’t even ask for water. Gravol is essential; to this day, when we’re on the go and when we’re on the mend — we love them!

After a busy week, my muscles feel so achy! Like most moms, I don’t usually have a lot of time to relax, so I rely on RUB A535™ Anti-Inflammatory Cream with Arnica for quick relief. I put it right on the spot where my sore muscle is, or where I’m having joint pain, and it works so fast! I love anything that starts to work instantly so that I can get back to taking care of my family. It’s not greasy like some other products and I don’t have to worry about it staining my clothes. I like to keep one at home and one in my car in case I need it anytime when I’m on-the-go!Last but not least, now that my daughter is very much coming into adulthood, we both enjoy going together for a mom/daughter trip to get a pedicure.  It’s our way of taking time for us, connecting one-on-one, and totally relaxing!  It’s a great way to feel revived and ready to take on the world again.

So tell me, what do you use for fast recovery after a busy week of fun?

Make March Break Sparkle #StreamTeam #NowOnNetflixCA

It’s not often that I think about younger children’s shows; mostly because I no longer have a young child.  Even my nieces and nephew aren’t so young any more!  That doesn’t mean that I don’t notice shows and/or characters.  Now that March Break is here, it’s important to be present in your little ones’ life … play with them, read to them, and watch shows with them.

Netflix shows have made a positive impact and how strong females have helped shape young girls’ outlook on life.  Julie Andrews has always been upbeat, positive, and encouraging … certainly a wonderful role model for all.

Julie Andrews is an amazing actress, singer, author, theatre director and dancer.  She is an icon and it’s hard to believe that she’s 81 years old because she just doesn’t stop being amazing!  So, guess what?On March 17 Julie Andrews will be making her Netflix debut in Julie’s Greenroom. Brought to life by the Jim Henson Company, the enriching show advocates for the arts and the positive impact creativity can have on every child’s life. With an array of very special guests (Idina Menzel, Sara Bareilles, and Alec Baldwin to name a few), Julie’s Greenroom might be a show you turn on for the kids but find yourself staying until the final curtain call.

JulieAndrewsWhat a treat!  Please do get your little ones to watch, while you enjoy watching this ever-shinning star bring smiles to your little ones’ faces.  Andrews’ ill-fated throat operation in 1997 hasn’t held her back from giving the world her rays of sunshine.

Hmmm, can you tell that I admire Julie Andrews?
