Hey! Look! I’m back so soon haha! I know, it’s like a Tracy Blogging miracle! But seriously, this is just a PSA kinda’ post from me, about things I truly LOVE and use right now. Hey-I’d never tell you about stuff I don’t like. Or use. ‘Cause that’s not ME, cross my menopausal chubby heart. 😛 These are things that I think are important for those of you living in Canada to take a look at before they disappear…:D because they are truly great! And hey-if you live elsewhere in this wonderful world of ours and happenstance upon these lovely products? Give ’em a try! I think you will like them as much as I do!
First off this duo from Bioderma:
If you frequent Shoppers Drug Mart as much as I do, then I KNOW you’ve seen this stuff there. Stop looking and BUY IT. Bioderma Atoderm Gel Douche and Bioderma Atoderm Crème I’m pretty sure I’ve seen sold as a duo over Christmas, and if you are lucky they are still there as a duo to scoop up. If not, even buying them as singles? SO WORTH IT. I shower every day, as I exercise pretty much every day. I try, I try. Just wish the chub would move off the bones! Oh, and the daily hot flashes GALORE that I experience also warrant daily showers. And daily showers are kind of a NO-NO when you have sensitive skin like I gots. These two products make my skin feel good! Normal! Not dry and scaly like they were starting to feel before they entered my shower routine.
Bioderma Atoderm Gel Douche and Bioderma Atoderm Crème soften and protects the skin and reduces any tightness in dry skin. Both products are allergen-free, soap-free, paraben-free. The Gel Douche, or Shower Gel gently cleanses and respects the skin’s PH balance. It really does leave skin soft after showering. It lathers really well too-only two pumps on my bath poof and it’s good! And the Atoderm Crème is perfect to moisturize after showering. It biologically strengthens the skin barrier and thereby curbs the penetration of any irritants. This duo is the best shower experience ever I swear, and my skin feels so good now. Love it! I don’t know about you, but I can’t take heavily fragranced shower products lately-I just can’t. These two products from Bioderma fit the bill right now. The gentle ocean fragrance is perfection.
You all know my love for Avène and the Avène Thermal Water. Right now, there’s a special offer you need to check out! I bet that itchy horsie would approve! 😛
You get a Limited Edition 50ml Avène Thermal Water Spray for FREE with the purchase of the 300ml version! It’s a great travel version to take with you, or throw in your gym bag. There’s special art work on these too-this year, the 2015 version is called The Mirror and it’s the second “collector” of a series of six that Avène will be offering until 2019.
Scoop this sweet deal up S’il vous plait! I use the Avène Thermal water all the time now. After I cleanse my face before any serums, after showering it soothes my face, in the AM to refresh my curls, to cool my face after a hot flash OH YEAH- I can’t be without this stuff now as you can tell. Check out the cool display unit Avène sent me to house the pretties! You can’t get this anywhere unfortunately, but I thought I’d show you my new love. It’s cool, right? Like my own, personal little Avène Thermal Water Museum hahaha!
Ok, I’m done haha! But yes, both of these products are pretty amazing I swear!
Guess what? I actually went to a real gym today! A new recreational centre opened up by our house in early December, and we finally got a chance to check it out. It’s NICE. It even has an indoor track to walk or run on! And all the machines! I love it! Me and the hubby went to work out together this afternoon-it was fun. We haven’t worked out together in years! I mean, we walk together in the summer all the time, but actual weights and stuff-we haven’t done that stuff since before Marky was born. Hopefully we keep it up and get healthy soon! Tomorrow I’m gonna check out the Zumba GOLD class for older adults haha-I’m a bit scared to take the regular class with all the young people! Gotta test out the easy Zumba Waters first!
Have you done something with your significant other recently that was fun? Or haven’t done in years? Do share! It’s been kind of fun hanging out together as a couple now that Marky is away at college. Like old times…almost…:P
