May is synonymous with two things: flowers and mothers. So to help all of the super-moms out there celebrate, we asked the moms of On Q to weigh in with some tips about how they like to celebrate? Their resounding answer – by doing something relaxing. In May’s instalment of Better for You Brands by On Q they each share their take on relaxation with a shout out to their favourite zen products.
Pure + Simple Collagen Elastin Plus
Relaxation… What is that? I’m on the go 24/7. As a woman in business, I’m always balancing back-to-back meetings and business development with my personal and family life. I rarely get the chance to take a moment for myself but my skin is a priority and I won’t put anything on my skin that doesn’t have clean ingredients. I am addicted to The Pure + Simple Collagen Elastin Plus. I use it religiously twice a day, never skipping a beat. Collagen is a must for your skin. It hydrates the skin and provides it with elasticity – meaning it makes you glow and has great anti-aging benefits! I apply the serum before my moisturizer and I find it is miracle hydration in a bottle. Who wouldn’t want that? – Tanya Dodaro, Co-founder & Partner
SoCIAL LITE Lemon Cucumber Mint
My favourite season? Patio season, of course! One of the most exciting parts of the spring season is that it’s finally warm enough that I can sit out on a patio and enjoy spending time in nature with my family and a cold, refreshing drink. The only downside to this seasonal indulgence is the calories and sugar that come with most of these drinks. Luckily, SoCIAL LITE Vodka has solved that problem. I have been obsessed with the SoCIAL LITE Lemon Cucumber Mint flavour. It’s super refreshing, light and just the right amount of sweet! It has no sugar, no sweetener and no artificial ingredients so when I take the time to sit out and relax, I can fully let go. I don’t have to worry or feel guilty about what I’m putting in my body. – Livia Grujich Co-founder & Partner
LOVEFRESH Vanilla Body Butter
The perfect night in for me involves a hot bath, coupled with my favourite magazines, a cup of tea and a moisturizing body lotion. I don’t have time for this to be part of my daily ritual (although I wish it was), so when I do find the opportunity, it’s important to me that I take advantage of this time and use products that get the job done well and are good for me too. I’ve tried the LOVEFRESH spray cleaners before and was really impressed, so when I saw that they had body products I had to try the Vanilla Body Butter and I fell in love. It feels so good on the skin because it contains all natural ingredients, every time I use it the smell brings me to sweet heaven. (Did I mention I have a sweet tooth?) Not going to lie though, the packaging on all of their products is what first caught my eye – they’re all so pretty! – Galit Solomon, Director of Operations and PR
