Let’s face it; life can be pretty unpredictable and when you’re constantly on the go it can get pretty difficult to take a little time to yourself. Since getting back from Costa Rica a week ago my life has been crazy – I’ve barely been home and have had so much on the go. My skin definitely took a bit of a beating between the flight home and a bit of hectic work and I knew I was going to have a hard time giving it the time that it needs. Luckily for me, AVEENO recently came out with a couple of products that really helped to nurse it back to health.

A facial isn’t always in the cards for all of us – between the associated costs and taking the time out of our schedules to actually go in and get it done, it’s not necessarily the most feasible thing. I can’t remember the last time I had one, but these new products from AVEENO have given me a chance to reap the benefits of one without the time commitment. The Positively Radiant 60 Second In-Shower Facial and Overnight Hydrating Facial are both super easy to add to your routine and beyond simple to use!

The AVEENO Positively Radiant 60 Second In-Shower Facial has become a real favourite of mine. It takes, yes, 60 seconds, and works quickly to refresh the skin. It uses the steam from the shower to open the pores, allowing for deep cleansing. I like to apply it while I wash my body or shave, letting it get to work, before rubbing it in to take advantage of the exfoliation and rinsing. My skin feels really clean afterwards and never dry.

Afterwards, I love to follow this up with the Positively Radiant Overnight Hydrating Facial. It feels really rich and creamy upon application; I actually apply a thick layer and let it sit on my skin for a couple of minutes to absorb as much on its own as it can before rubbing it in. It uses AVEENO’s Active Naturals Total Soy Complex to give my skin a deep level of hydration. The result? I wake up to skin that’s glowing and really refreshed, giving it most of the benefits of a facial while I sleep. Does it get any better than that?

With my life being all over the place & constantly on the go, these two products have become staples for me especially when I’m in a real rush. How else do you pamper yourself when you don’t have a lot of time?

In need of a little pampering?  If you live in the Toronto area and are looking to relax and enjoy yourself a little, you’re probably going to want to check out Way Spa’s Spa Week.  Taking place April 15-21st, it gives Torontonians a chance to get out to some of the greatest spas the city has to offer for amazing spa treatments for only $50(!) – I’m thinking I might need to treat myself to a little birthday present.  This yearly event began in 2004, and this will be Toronto’s first time participating.

I think this is a great way to get people who might not normally take a trip to the spa to get out and enjoy themselves.  I definitely can’t be the only one who enjoys a good massage and facial!  You can sign up for Spa Week here to get access to all the great deals the week has to offer. Take a look at a few of the treatments I’m hoping to take advantage of with some great savings:

– Jade Wellness: Swedish Massage + Mini Facial + Choice of OPI Manicure of Pedicure – $110 value

– Shizen Pantages: Dead Sea Scrub, full body exfoliation – $110 value

– Lavender Spa: Organic Facial Special – $95 value

That’s just a taste of the numerous treatments available at the various spas.  Treatments range from  manicures & pedicures to massages to facials, and everything in between.  You can easily get your entire body taken care of and rejuvenated if you take advantage of a few of these offers.

Which treatment would you most like to receive?  Are you going to check out Spa Week?


I know, I’m a little delayed in posting this – sorry for the wait!  If you haven’t seen the pictures I posted on Facebook yet, they’re all in here.

Last week, my friends at Biore gave me the opportunity to host a Girl’s Night In with a few of my friends, complete with manis, pedis, facials, and cupcakes! The amazing ladies from Spa Party showed up at my house with all their gear and quickly got to setting up while my friends and I had some munchies and a glass of wine to relax after work.

We quickly got down to business – time to get pampered!

Some of us got the night started with facials – they were done using Biore’s amazing products, which have now been redesigned to fall into three different lines – blue for deep cleansing, orange for complexion clearing and pink for make-up removing.  The facials were super refreshing and were tailored to suit each of our skincare needs.

Thanks so much to the ladies from Spa Party – click here to find out more information– they are a completely mobile spa company that will come to you.  They do all sorts of events, from corporate to birthdays to bachelorette parties (yeah, we were already discussing that last one lol). They did an amazing job and gave us the perfect night of pampering!

Seriously, what’s a girls night in without yummy treats?  Cupcakes can’t be beat!

Everyone also got an amazing swag bag full of Biore goodies – I think it’s safe to say we’re all going to be having amazing complexions for the next little while..

And, of course, I couldn’t leave out our Girl’s Night In mascot, Poppers.

Once again, thank you so much to Biore and Spa Party for giving us an amazing Girl’s Night In!
