Hello Summer! We welcome Summer Solstice with open arms. Summer in Winnipeg is simply beautiful. The air is beautiful, the warm breeze and prairie skies- there’s nothing better. These are the summers I remember and I love.
Avon Canada recently sent me our favourite summer must-haves and I am so excited to share them with you as you can win them too and see how and why they are so fantastic. Mainly because these products work!
We recently had a beach day so I had to bring out my favourites and put them to the test. If you remember from last summer and are a long time follower of my blog you’ll remember my excitement over the Bug Guard ICaridin on Instagram, man those Bug Guard toilettes are awesome too. Living in Winnipeg, we are known for our mosquitoes and I can hang out in my yard and not worry about them because bugs love me but they don’t love the Skin So Soft Bug Guard. I attract them and I don’t know why.
Bug Guard protects against ticks too, something I didn’t worry too much about when living in Toronto but living in Winnipeg and going for walks in the local parks and forests here, can be worrisome.
I was thrilled to see Avon’s Pure Natural Mineral Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF40, it’s on sale for $19.99 so pick it up! It’s broad-spectrum protection, hypoallergenic, biodegradable, natural and organic certified. It’s a hydrating formula with SPF 40, it protects and nourishes the skin. It’s for the body and is water-sweat resistant for up to 80 minutes. Gluten and GMO-free and NOT tested on animals. My kids know to slather on as I had them all covered at the beach but did I remember to do my back???? No.
I got sunburnt. I was busy taking care of everyone else but myself. I had the front of me all nicely covered but I got distracted. But holy moly, talk about putting a product to the test! I am forever happy to have tried their Jeju Aloe 99% Fresh Soothing Gel. It worked and I kid you not, I was not sore the next day. The next day I slathered on The Face Shop Jeju Aloe Fresh Ice Soothing Gel- again, fabulous and I also mist myself with The Face Shop Jeju Aloe Fresh Soothing Mist. No itchy painful skin after the sun- these products nourished and calmed my skin. Aloe is nature’s miracle moisturizer.
