This week I’ve been focusing on self care. For those of you that follow me on social media, you may have seen my posts promoting self care and ways to maintain such daily. While the mental and emotional aspects of self care are vital, it’s always fun to mix in the products and services that provide a little treat for our bodies. (Did someone say spa day?) Most of us may not be able to enjoy a Caribbean vacay on a regular basis or reap the benefits of a personal masseuse. However, buying budget friendly beauty products that pamper our skin is something that the majority of us can say is within our reach.
Below are a few products that I use regularly (with the exception of a new one 🙂 ). What I enjoy most about these products is how soft they leave my skin. Especially in these winter months when dry skin is so common. Goodbye dry skin, hello moisture!
Shea Moisture Products
Shea Moisture Super Fruit Hand and Body Scrub
I recently started using this product. Kind of a funny story…I originally purchased it to go in a gift basket for Christmas. Turns out I was so curious to try it that I popped it open for myself. Since then I’ve been scrubbing away dead skin and loving the smooth finish!
Shea Moisture Super Fruit Bath, Body and Massage Oil
Shea Moisture did it again! This product works great with the hand and body scrub. It adds an extra layer of moisture that is always needed during these skin-parching months. I like this scent because it’s not overly fruity so it can be used by a man or woman and smell equally as good on both. I like to spray a small amount of perfume over the oil for a nice finish. A man could do the same with cologne to create a more masculine scent.
Shea Moisture Men’s Scrub and Wash
This was the “with the exception of one” I was speaking of above. I haven’t tried it (well…after all…it is a men’s product 😉 ) but if it’s consistent with the other Shea Moisture products then I’m comfortable vouching for it! I find it awesome that they made it a two in one: scrub and body wash. Less juggling and acrobatics in the shower!
Vaseline Intensive Care Products
Vaseline Intensive Care Healing Serum
This lotion has been a go-to of mine for quite some time now. The cocoa butter keeps my skin hydrated while I reap its other benefits like healing scars and blemishes.
In the hotter months I like using the spray-on version which is a little lighter in coverage but has the same effects.
Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant Oil
I used this product regularly years ago and forgot about it until recently. I know…how could I do such a thing?! This stuff is great! In fact, I can use it alone and it works just as well (maybe even better…shhh!) than the lotion.
Have you tried any of these products? Any questions about my experience with them? Please comment below if you have any questions or additional information to dish on these products. 🙂
