Take the Spa Home

Take the Spa Home

Let’s go to the spa… or even better let’s take the spa home. Run yourself a nice bath and treat yourself to some relaxing down time. You deserve it. It is, Sunday anyways. You don’t have anywhere important to be ;).

I’ve been told so many times to make sure you take care of yourself too once you have the baby. I didn’t fully understand what that meant because I thought that if I am home all day I will have time to tend to my myself too. Nope, there are just not enough hours in the day! Especially if you make plans. It takes 3 hours to just get out of the house (if you want to get ready too). So taking a bath and having some me time is needed! Continue reading “Take the Spa Home”

Bamboo & Honey

Bamboo & Honey

Let’s take a look at a scrub that I have grown to really like lately. I am quite picky with my scrubs. For my particular skin type I like a gritty textured product that feels like it is sloughing off everything I need efficiently. This scrub is made by Clayton Shagal. It is called Bamboo & Honey Exfoliant. It is meant for people with normal to dry skin, mature skin, or dehydrated skin. The grits in this product are made up of crystalized bamboo extract, which I find to be quite cool, so it’s still aggressive enough yet doesn’t scratch the skin. You don’t need very much of this scrub. If you take a little bit of it and rub it in between two fingers you can feel how gritty the texture is which I LOVE! One tube lasts quite some time- I have had mine for almost 3 months now and it gets utilized 2 times a week. I usually apply a dime sized amount with gentle circle motions all over then leave on for about 2-3 minutes (depending on if I’m in a hurry). Then with wet hands I use circle motions again to kind of get a gritty lather going- then rinse off! My skin is always left feeling silky and has a hydrated feel to it. Perfect now that we are going into the dry winter months. Continue reading “Bamboo & Honey”
