Braving the Ice Storm : Introducing Aquaphor Healing Ointment + a Giveaway

Some of you may or may not have heard that here in Toronto, we have been dealt with an extremely nasty bout of inclement weather. 
Many are still without power including my dear brother + his family and for some, it may take as long as 72 hours to be restored. 
Praying for a speedy clean up and that everyone has a warm Christmas. 



the above pic is of my beloved birch tree. we're not sure if she will make it under the weight of all of the ice.
I thought it was appropriate to share a few photos alongside this review of a product MADE for this weather and anything Mother Nature may decide to throw our way. Bless her little heart. 
Aquaphor Healing Ointment, and the newly introduced Aquaphor Lip Repair, can heal your toughest of dry, chapped red skin problems. 
Believe me, we have put both to the test in these last few days.
The healing ointment is a must-have of Beyonce who claims to use it on skin, lips + even in her hair! 
I have not tried the latter but am seriously considering.
My oldest has quickly taken to the lip repair which she insists is amazing AND lasts all day. Good news for this mom who buys lip balm like it is going out of style.
Personally, I've been using the healing ointment exclusively on my own dry, rough elbows.
It has the consistency of a vaseline only not as sticky and is just amazing slathered on dry feet and layered with socks.
Smooth and silky by morning! 

Have you tried Aquaphor Healing Ointment? 
Enter now for your chance to win an Eat, Drink and #AquaphorIt  prize pack including a $50 Visa Gift Card.
Can you say January sales?


Open to residents of Canada + the U.S. 
Good Luck!

    1. This ice-storm was crazy ... there a many broken trees through out our property in the country. Thankfully G. had made the decision to remove some very old , huge trees this past summer - as they would certainly have come down (and possibly on our home). The country house was without power for almost 3 days - Christmas was spent with family in Windsor - so we were quite fortunate. When we returned from time with family ..we ventured to the city house and were pleased that the damage was to the back of the yard only (from a neighbour's tree) and not the house. We were told that the power was out in the area of our city house for almost 4 days... Sobey's was like something you see in a movie - no fridge or freezer products ... empty shelves everywhere. Stay warm my friend. Hugs , C. (HHL)
