SUMMER!! I kinda’ hate summer to be honest…. I’m really a true Canadian girl-I LIKE THE COLD. AND THE SNOW *ducks from all the snowballs thrown by you summer-lovin’ beauties*
I’m serious! Gimme a -20C day ANY TIME. Anything above +22C you can KEEP. I don’t want it! It’s a good thing I’m mostly a pretty good girl(crosses self), because there’s NO way I could handle living in HELL for all eternity! These hot flashes are bad enough! Pretty sure they’re HELL. ON. EARTH.
So, to help me deal with summer, I’ve decided to show you some of my SUMMER FAVES! Things that help me get through this horrid season of HELL ON EARTH. Hands up if you hate summer too! 😛
Let’s start with something easy-my fave drugstore brand, AVEENO! And I may be a bit biased since I’m an #AveenoAmbassador, but DUDES-their stuff is AMAZING. And AFFORDABLE. Which means I have more money in the summer to spend on…BEER. WINE. POPSICLES. You know…IMPORTANT STUFF DUH.
Aveeno Shower/Moisturizer Summer Combo
AVEENO Daily Moisturizing Body Wash
With AVEENO Daily Moisturizing Body Wash, skin hydration starts in the shower and stays with you long after that shower is over. Which is what you need in the hot summer! This body wash replenishes your skin’s moisture barrier with a combination of colloidal oatmeal and natural oils, giving you healthier looking skin. And we want that in the summer, right? Skin is on full summer viewing, so we want it to look good! This body wash is soap-free, dye-free and gentle enough for most sensitive skins, of whom I am QUEEN I swear. This is such a soothing shower gel I tell ya! Which is perfect for summer. It’s a staple in our shower at Beauty Reflections. We all really love most of the Old Spice Shower Gels, but sometimes? You just want a CLEAN, fragrance-free shower, ya’ know what I’m saying? And this? IS IT. It’s like the coffee beans they make you smell to clean your nose when you’re sniffing perfumes. SHOWER SCENT RESET.
AVEENO Daily Moisturizing Sheer Hydration Lotion
This new ultra sheer lotion absorbs in seconds, for a fresh, powder like feel that’s SO NICE in the summer! It moisturizes for a full 24 hours too, which is kind of amazing for a body lotion that disappears so fast. But it really does leave you feeling velvety soft all day, yet no greasy aftermath at all. Which is perfect for summer, right? RIGHT! And no fragrance to compete with whatever summer scent you feel like spritzing on yourself to make summer tolerable HAHAHA. Man…I really do hate summer, hey? I keep telling Terry we need to move to Scotland in our old age…somewhere in the Highlands there…a cottage…and a goat…I don’t know why I envision a goat in my retirement vision, but I’m pretty dang sure LILY @ChloeAsh might have something to do with it…. 😀
Yup! These two Aveeno products are #BetterTogether like peanut butter and jam, salt and pepper, summer and heat???! Yeah, all of those ok! Again, why can’t summer mean NICE, COMFY TEMPERATURES, HUH? WHY??!!
What’s your favourite Shower/Moisturizer Summer Combo #BetterTogether? Let us know! Tweet me dudes! Me and Aveeno really want to know and use that hashtag! And are you a summer lover? Or summer hater? Don’t worry…I’ll still love you no matter what! Me and my future goat-we PROMISE 🙂
And now, let’s just enjoy The Cars -Magic! I’m going to try to show you a song I associate with summer, and feature them in these summer posts I write. This is a classic! And let’s talk Rick Ocasek-how’d that dude end up with Paulina??!!
