I’m a busy mom, and while I adore my son – sometimes I need a little time to myself. Every mom knows that the only way to really do that is to take a shower. Even then, you might get someone yelling through the door to ask a question, but overall – that’s the best way to get 15-30 minutes of time to yourself. While that’s not entirely the topic of this post, it’s one of the reasons I look forward to taking both a morning and nightly shower.

My shower caddy is packed with goodies. Shower gels, shampoos and conditioners,  skin care odds and ends – but we’re going to take a look at my favorite morning and night shower routine. Most of the Aveeno items packed into my shower caddy are from iHerb!

 My newest iHerb package had some of my favorites in it! It was my first time shopping on iHerb, and I guarantee I’ll be a returning customer. Everything was easy to search for, there was a ton of variety to choose from and I had my package in 5 business days using the normal free shipping option. Also, free shipping at only $20. That’s pretty amazing.

So let’s take a peek into both of my routines.

In the morning, I love using Aveeno Active Naturals Nourish + Moisturize Shampoo and Conditioner. It’s perfect for dry hair and gives it a boost of moisture. It also helps strengthen, soften and add shine. I also can usually skip a day with washing if I really want to (or if I woke up late and am in a rush… that’s usually the case)

Admit it – when you’re having a bad hair day, you spend most of your day hoping no one else notices. Start it off with a good washing.

I also prefer to use Aveeno Active Naturals Daily Moisturizing Body Wash in the morning. We have a fairly strict “no fragrance” policy at work, and the daily moisturizing body wash is perfect if you have a similar policy to stick to.  Aveeno Active Naturals Daily Moisturizing Body Wash has a unique blend of natural oils and emollients to help replenish skin’s moisture plus it contains Colloidal Oatmeal, which is known to soothe skin (perfect for the colder weather) It’s also soap free, dye free and hypoallergenic.

Since I’m usually rushing to leave for work at this point, I generally don’t use lotion all over. Instead I use Aveeno Active Naturals Skin Relief Hand Cream. We all know I show off my hands and nails a lot on this blog, so I always have 30 extra seconds to moisturize my hands! Aveeno Active Naturals Skin Relief Hand Cream provides intense moisture plus it also contains Colloidal Oatmeal to help smooth – so no itchy, flaky skin on my hands and cuticles. Plus it’s fast absorbing, non greasy and fragrance free (so I can also use it at work!)

Now my favorites. I love my morning wakeup shower, but let me tell you – the wind down shower after a long day is my favorite. This is when I pin my hair up, turn the water on scalding hot (yeah I’m also one of those people who leaves the shower with bright red skin) and relax.

My nightly body wash? Aveeno Active Naturals Stress Relief Body Wash.  With Lavender, Chamomile + Ylang Ylang, it calms and relaxes while moisturizing.  After a long, stressful day, this is all I need. Well this and chocolate.

After the water starts to get cold (about 38 minutes… I’ve timed it) I put on my fluffy robe and use Aveeno Active Naturals Positively Nourishing Calming Body Lotion in Lavender + Chamomile.  This is also why I don’t stress about moisturizing in the morning, I do it every night. This luxurious body lotion with lavender and chamomile envelops your skin in lasting moisture while its relaxing scent soothes your senses. It’s heaven in a bottle.

Both of these together help me feel relaxed and a tad sleepy.

Now you know my morning and night shower routine, and how I spend my limited moments to myself.

As I mentioned earlier, I picked up all of these Aveeno favorites from iHerbiHerb is a  convenient website filled with a bunch of amazing health and lifestyle items, which include an incredible selection of over 80 Aveeno products which can  be shipped to over 160 countries! Their customer service team also provides support in 10 languages. Some sites I can’t even find support on, so that’s above and beyond to provide it in multiple languages.

Want to indulge a little and try out some of my favorites? Or pick up some of your tried and trues (or maybe even try some new products?)  Shop on iHerb! Customers can click here to get a discount off their Aveeno Order!

  1. I wish the school I taught at had had the no fragrance policy. I would get migraines from other people’s products. Aveeno fragrance-free items are a staple in my house and always will be.

  2. Aveeno makes such great products! I don’t think that I actually have any of their products in rotation right now! Clearly I need to change that!
