Both of these products are so relaxing, so heavenly, I think I drained an entire hot water heater in one sitting! This time of year is really stressful for me, and having something like this to look forward to at the end of my day has been so great.

I LOVE lavender, in fact I planted some this year because I love it so much. It’s just so calming to me. Both these products are amazing!

I’m CRAVING CeraVe Lotions!

I think I’m late to the game, but I just tried CeraVe lotions for the first time, and now I can see what everyone has been talking about! My sister came over the other day, grabbed a tub of it and squealed! She said her girlfriends SWEAR by the lotion, is “all they use!”

I gave it a good week – and used these exclusively – and I’m hooked. I love them! I think the #1 thing I look for in a body lotion – is DOES IT ABSORB COMPLETELY. I really hate, HATE lotions that don’t absorb and feel slimy on your skin all day. (I won’t name names.) Or lotions that are too thick to spread, you end up using way too much. These lotions really are perfect.

CeraVe® Moisturizing Cream increases the skin’s ability to attract, hold and distribute moisture. It penetrates deeply into the layers of the stratum corneum (the skin barrier) to restore the balance of lipids that are essential for an effective skin barrier. CeraVe® Moisturizing Cream also forms a protective layer over the skin’s surface to help prevent moisture loss.

Ordinary moisturizing creams need to be applied frequently because the ingredients are released in a single “burst” and absorbed in a short period of time. Like other CeraVe® Skincare products, CeraVe® Moisturizing Cream features a unique, patented MVE® delivery technology, which provides a controlled release of essential ceramides and other skin-nurturing and emollient ingredients slowly over time. It penetrates deeply into the skin to moisturize and nourish skin throughout the day while “locking in” precious moisture. The unique ingredients in CeraVe® Moisturizing Cream help restore and maintain the natural protective function of the skin barrier, help restore damaged skin and help keep skin healthy.

CeraVe® Moisturizing Cream is a rich formula that spreads easily and smoothly, absorbs rapidly and never feels greasy. It is ideal for drier areas of the body including elbows, knees and heels and can also be used on the face as it’s noncomedogenic (does not cause pimples or acne by clogging pores), non-irritating and fragrance-free.

You can buy these lotions online (Amazon, etc.) or at Walgreens (and I’m sure many more drugstores). I highly reccommend these products!!
