Valentine's Day Gift Ideas -- The Love Birds Collection From Time & Again (Review)

Time & Again - Personal Care & Air Care

I first sampled the Time & Again personal care line of products while undergoing cancer treatment back in 2008.  My parents, who were my biggest support system and brought me daily to my radiation and chemo treatments at Dana Farber, surprised me early on with a sampling of body lotion and hand creams from Ganz.  And, throughout my five months of treatment, I would use these products on a daily basis, as they not only smelled so good and left my skin silky smooth, but the floral scents always seemed to bring a calming feel over me.  Now, almost five years out of treatment, I continue to use Time and Again personal care products, as well as burn their line of scented candles in my home.  You may recall that I had shared a review of their crackling candle this past Christmas, and last Mother's Day shared another review on Time & Again bath and body products that the folks at Ganz so kindly sent me to review.  So, when I was putting together my Valentine's Day gift guide for this year, I knew that I had to include a sampling of Time & Again bath and body products, as they always make for a great gift idea.

If you are a fan of the scent French vanilla, then you will love The Love Birds Collection from Time & Again. 

The Love Birds Collection Includes the Following: 

Sensual Massage Oil (2.1 fl.oz.) - Sensual Luxurious Body Butter (4.2 oz.) - French Vanilla Moisturizing Cream Body Wash (6.2 fl.oz.) - French Vanilla Velvety Hand Cream (2.2 fl.oz.) - French Vanilla Silky Body Lotion (8 fl.oz.) - French Vanilla Romantic Bath Sprinkles (2.1 oz.) - Cherry 

I was sent the above Love Birds Collection to review, and couldn't wait to try out each and every product, especially the bath sprinkles.   So, over the course of a week, I took an extra 10-15 minutes out of my day to pamper myself.  This was one of my new year's resolutions, as I found that after having my second daughter, I tended to neglect "me time."  I don't know about you, but what a difference taking a few minutes out of your day to just tend to you, really does for one's mind and body.  I not only felt energized, but the sweet scent of French vanilla really relaxed me (even on the most stressful days).  And, my skin felt and looked amazing.  Usually during the cold winter months, I find my skin gets dry and cracked -- usually because I don't take the time to use moisturizing hand and body lotions.  But, after trying out this collection from Time & Again, I couldn't help but stick with my new year's resolution to take time for me and pamper myself.

And, when I finally got around to taking a long soak in the tub to try out the French Vanilla Romantic Bath Sprinkles, I was in heaven.  Not only did the bathroom smell amazing, but my skin had the subtle smell of French vanilla after I towel dried.  I then followed up with the Sensual Luxurious Body Butter -- which really helped my skin, which was beginning to get dried out due to the dryness in the cold and wind and cold outside.  In just one application I noticed a difference in my skin, which I loved. 

The only product I haven't tried out from The Love Birds Collection is the massage oil.  But, I am hoping come Valentine's Day that my husband will finally honor his I.O.U for a much needed back massage, in which he can use this massage oil. :-)

So, if you love pampering yourself and trying out wonderful bath and body products, why not check out the Time & Again personal care offering from Ganz?  Click here to find a retailer near you who carries Time & Again products (including candles, air care and personal care products) --

What I find helpful is printing out and circling products that I would love to try, and include where they can be purchased.  Then, I hang this wish list on the refrigerator for my husband to see.  This tastes the guesswork out of wondering what to get me for special occasions. :-)  

Disclosure: I was sent samples from the vendor in order to write up an honest review  The views above are mine and mine alone.


  1. Ooh that is nice. I'd love to try this out.

  3. I love French Vanilla and even love the packaging on these items. Oops, just noticed someone above me said that also. It is eye catching. The bath sprinkles look really neat as well
