(…yeah, I am sure I will use that reference *waaay* too much). Anyway…
Okay, this isn’t about the fact that I don’t get my hair cut nearly often enough (that’s a story for another day), but the fact that in the winter I don’t shave my legs enough. What? Don’t look at me like that. You know you go longer between shaves now that you aren’t wearing shorts and skirts like you were 2 months ago. It’s true and don’t try pretending that it’s not. Mine problem just comes down to laziness. I mean, really – I wear jeans every day, there’s nothing to see here.And, what with all the steps and all. However, I *do* get the winter itchies and that gets pretty annoying.
So I went to the dr. yesterday because I have been feeling kinda lousy. Luckily we narrowed down what it is and she gave me meds to get me started on the path back to normalcy. Now, when I got home all I wanted to do was relax while waiting for the meds to kick in, so I drew a really really hot bath with some Sanctuary Bath Relaxer in it.
I can’t begin to properly explain this scent to you, but I will give you my impression: it is just a warm, rich scent that smells just like a high end spa would smell (which is where it originates from) and just breathing it in deeply relaxes you immediately. This oil leaves you with an silky oily feel, but not overly dripping, just soft.
I know that after my bath, I felt much better (I am sure the meds kicking in didn’t hurt with that) and more relaxed. I can def reccommend this to anyone wanting to feel like they are being super pampered in a super spa, but for much less money. You can pick this up at Target, either online or in store for under $10. Enjoy.

Besides my fondness for QVC, you will find that I have a lot of Avon products, too. It’s really hard not to, nowadays, since they have really upped their game with their products, the prices (and sales) are very good and it doesn’t hurt that I have an actual little Avon walkin store that is close to my house.
One of my favorite Avon products, actually one of my any brand favorites, right now is Avon’s MagiX Face Perfector SPF20.
This is Avon’s colorless gel-powder primer. I gotta say, I just got on the primer wagon this year and this is by far my favorite that I have tried. It just sets so nicely, with a light powdery finish, that is so subtle but is so effective. I rarely leave the house now without putting some of this on – and this comes from the “Eh, maybe I’ll just put on some tinted moisturizer before I head out…..or not” girl. Now, this might be similar in texture/finish as the Monistat 7 trick, but I never got around to trying that. But, with this having an SPF of 20 already built in, it’s already better that that anyway.
