When I was younger I never really thought of 30s as being SO DIFFERENT from my 20s, but now that I am well into my mid-30s I feel like I am in a completely different reality. I am a small business owner, I have two kids, my husband is in the military, and we just found out we are moving back to Florida from the state of Washington. Let me translate that for you: I am so busy doing things for my business and my family that I rarely take extra time to do anything but the basics for myself. I realized this a couple months ago and started looking for ways to sneak in moments for me, and they actually include one of my favorite brands, Aveeno®.
I am going to share with you a few products from Aveeno® that have really made the skin on my face and body feel more luxurious, and has definitely scratched my itch for a little pampering.
One of those moments is spent in the shower. It is funny because I almost feel like this is the only place I can “hide” from my kids and concentrate on myself. It makes sense that I would try to pack a facial into that time, right? The Aveeno® Positively Radiant® 60 Second In-Shower Facial is PERFECT for that. The name really says it all, it is a facial that only takes up ONE MINUTE of your shower routine, will it gives my dull, tired-looking skin a boost. It works with the steam of your shower to deeply, but gently, exfoliate dirt, oil and dead skin. This affordable yet brilliant facial is formulated with soy extract to help even out your skin’s tone and texture as well as lemon peel extract to purify and brighten your skin.
Immediately following the shower, while my pores are freshly cleansed and open from the warm shower steam, I slather on the Aveeno® Absolutely Ageless Intensive Renewal Serum. If you have read my blog for any amount of time, you will know that I am a huge fan of serums and never skip one in my beauty routine. I feel like they pack so much punch in a light formula, and this one from Aveeno® is no exception. It improves the appearance of fine lines, hydrates and improves skin texture, and nourishes deep down for healthy-looking skin. It also strengthens skin’s natural moisture barrier to maintain younger, healthier-looking skin over time.
Last but certainly not least is the Aveeno® Daily Moisturizing Body Yogurt in Vanilla and Oats. You guys, this stuff smells HEAVENLY. This rich, creamy formula with ACTIVE NATURALS® Oat and nutrient-rich yogurt revitalizes dry skin and leaves it hydrated for 48 hours. Saturate your body with nourishing moisture for skin that is velvety soft, smooth, and healthy- looking all day. This is the one lotion I have used for months and months now and I don’t skip slathering it on EVER.
I have gone through several tubs already, and as you can see by the empty one in the picture below, I just ran out of my last one and the one in the picture above is about to be opened up! You guys, this is a proud moment for me. I love using products to the very last drop.
I hope you enjoyed hearing how I take moments for me with Aveeno®. For a chance to win the ultimate “me time” wellness retreat for two and a year’s supply of Aveeno products, check out the Aveeno #MomentForMe contest!
