Shower Goodness

Have you ever gotten out of the shower and felt pampered and beautiful? I have. And it was with the help of some new Suave® Naturals body wash and moisturizing products.

Yes, Suave® . Usually that name speaks value to me. But the body washes I've been using speak the word luxurious to me!

The first time I used the Apricot Exfoliating Body Wash, which is infused with apricot and coconut extracts. YUM! I followed with a wonderful moisturizing lotion...Suave® Cocoa Butter with Shea Moisturizer. My skin felt FABulous.

I wanted to test another combination, you know, to be sure it wasn't a one time fluke LOL. Enter the Wild Cherry Blossom Indulgent Body Wash, which is infused with cherry blossom extracts and Vitamin E. I followed that with the Advanced Therapy Moisturizer. The result: Excellent!

If the body washes only smelled good, they would not be worth talking about! But they also feel great and truly moisturize and pamper you. I can't say enough about the lotions. I have very dry skin. Dry African-American skin turns white, like ash. Can I just tell you that I haven't had one ashy day since I started using these Suave products. So any lotion that can hold its own with my elbows, hands and knees is a keeper.

These products have even been endorsed by Holly Robinson Peete. See a few of her tips on pampering below :)

Trade in your daily shower for a relaxing bath that’s fit for a queen! Transform your bathroom into a private sanctuary by lighting an aromatherapy-inspired candle and playing your favorite tunes. Be sure to use Suave® Naturals Lavender Vanilla Calming Body Wash. The soothing scent of lavender will calm your senses and transport your mind to a tranquil oasis.

Shower yourself beautiful by hosting an at-home spa day. Invite girlfriends over for manicures and pedicures and paint fingers and toes summer-inspired shades of sorbet. Once nails are dry, generously apply a moisturizing body lotion to keep hands and feet soft and smooth all summer long.

Good Tips from Holly. Well I can't wait to see who's going to win my little giveaway. And if you happen to win the sweepstakes, let me know!

As always, be blessed...and pampered!

Hey, girl! You are cracking me up!! I'm so glad that your skin is not ashy anymore! You are just precious! I'll have to give those products a try--we've used other Suave products for years--they work fine for us.

I'll be getting myself pampered!!
Love you!

Thanks for sharing this, Mari. I love trying different body washes, lotions, bubble baths, all sorts of things that have a lovely aroma and make me feel pampered, soft and smooth! It does help at the end of a painful day to soak in a luxurious bath.
