Neutrogena keeps you covered this summer with a huge line of sunscreen products!

The sun is coming, the sun is coming! In fact, as I’m typing this, I’m sitting here staring at the beautiful sun, and wishing I was outside frolicking in it right now! We live in Oregon, we have to enjoy it when we get it!

Neutrogena has got you COVERED this summer as far as sunscreen goes! They offer products for everyone in your family from newborn – to adult! For sensitive skin – for wet skin (which is genius, if you ask me). When I’m in the store and looking to buy sunscreen for my family – I ALWAYS go for the brand I know and trust. I know Neutrogena, I trust them. They offer sunscreens for sensitive skin – and faces. Again – GENIUS! Who wants to clog their pores while protecting their skin from the sun?? Not me!

Why is sun protection so important?  The following was shared at the recent Neutrogena Sun Summit: “The brightness of the sun has increased, while the ozone layer has been depleted,” says Dr. Drew Shindell, Scientist at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies.  “So climate change has led to warmer temperatures, which means Spring comes earlier and Fall lasts longer, and people are outside more.  Due to the combination of these environmental and lifestyle changes, current risk of UV is higher than it’s been ever before.”

I’m loving this new soap so much, I hope it never disappears!

You’re never going to want to get out of the shower….

Okay, to be honest I usually never want to give out of the shower. It’s the only time someone doesn’t bug me! Mommy time? I’ve got all night!

I love being introduced to products like these, that are just as amazing as their expensive peers. This new body wash from Tone smells amazing, and feels even better. Best part of all? It’s under $5!

Tone’s Ocean Therapy body wash contains vitamin E, deep sea extracts including sea kelp, and pearl essence. Known for delivering glowing, soft, rejuvenating skin, makeup artists and designers such as Donna Karan and Vincent Longo have adopted pearl essence because of its hydrating qualities, and sea kelp softens and purifies skin by removing toxins through its detoxifying and re-mineralizing elements.

Check your local grocery store – and pick some upe!

Calm yourself with Lavanila’s new scent, Vanilla!

Another amazing set from Lavanila (do they ever go wrong?). Introducing – Lavanila Vanilla!

I’ve always had a love affair with vanilla. It’s probably the baker in me, I love to cook. Vanilla just smells homey, comforting, doesn’t it? In fact as I’m typing this, I’m having these flashbacks to my childhood. My mom told me when I was a little girl, that one way to make your husband happy when he walks in the door, is to have a pan of vanilla slowly simmering on the stove. The scent of vanilla is calming, and relaxing, and makes you happy. So it’s no surprise that the brand behind so many beautiful flavors and scents has gone Vanilla!

Vanilla has been used as a homeopathic aid for years. However, just recently studies are proving simply the scent of vanilla can be used to de-stress, help you sleep and actually improve your mood!
