Favourite things for Mom: Beauty and Lifestyle products to adore

Here are just some of my favourite products.  I’ll be sharing more on these products in the next coming weeks and everything mom related until Friday.  I hope you’ll like my gift idea’s!

Lotus Aroma is one of my favourite skincare lines, hailing from Quebec.  Their essential oils are amazing and excellent quality but I am here to tell you about their body care.  After a day walking or after a good work out I like to revitalise my legs with Lotus Aroma Gel for Heavy and Tired Legs.  It goes on light, it’s not greasy and it’s therapeutic. Peppermint, Cypress, Lemon and Camphor improve microcirculation while anti-oxidant-rich infused Peppermint leaves magnify hydration, leaving the skin wonderfully responsive.  I like to use sweeping movements starting from the ankle and moving up.  Light, sweeps to stimulate the lymph.  It’s sooooo good!

Tis the season for Bogs! I have never owned a pair of Bogs until recently and I am happy to tell you that these may be the comfiest rain boots I have ever worn.  The quality was one of the first things I noticed.  The sole is nicely constructed and I could wear them all day.  I love the new Quinn collection for Spring and if you’re a gardener or spend a lot of time outdoors, check out the Quinn collection. Their DuraFresh technology keeps feet dry and odor-free while Rebound cushioning atop H2OGrip outsole assures springy sure-footed ramblings, rain or shine! Love it. 

As we get older our hydration levels begin deminish sadly and our skin becomes flaccid.  But wait!  Have you heard of Toronto based skin care brand Schaf?  
I’ve been using their Radiance Firming Serum religiously and I have noticed an improvement with my skins hydration.  Makeup is sitting nicer and my pigmentation is beginning to look less and less from my sun damage.  Vitamin B3 helps shut down dark spot–causing melanin, while also serving up antioxidant protection; fruit acids boost brightness; hyaluronic acid plumps you up; and peptides give wrinkles a run for their money.
Speaking of money, use code: mommy and save 20% on your order for Mothers Day! 

From Italy with love.  I love my Caffitaly S22 Cappuccino maker!  I mean it’s a brilliant piece of machinery that Mom will LOVE!   I have made latte’s, of course cappucino’s and have used nut milks to make dairy free drinks that are to die for.  I love that their coffee pods are recyclable.  If you love coffee as much as I do, this is a decadent appliance that you will love using.  I love their coffee too and this has been a treat to use.  It’s also a breeze to clean.

CHO is enriched with natural vitamin E, luxurious beauty oils, creations of France’s renowned manufacturer of natural cosmetics are essential to your beauty routine.  Designed to care for a specific type of skin and purpose, these formulas contain high-quality plant and essential oils, and no preservatives.

I hope you love these suggestions, I also hope you’ll visit their sites and explore and maybe even shop for yourself. Tomorrow I am hosting a giveaway with ROMA boots for Mothers Day, so stay tuned!

    I’ve never had any Bogs but I do have a pair of slippers from Uggs, they were a present from my daughter for child-minding whilst they went to Las Vegas. They are lovely and warm, since I live in a basement apartment it is very much appreciated.
    Love these suggestions, lots of good ideas too.
