This past year has been stressful hasn’t it? So many changes in our world and our children’s worlds. Over the years being a mom to a child with a disability, as well as living through the last year, I’ve seen how important it is to just have time for self care. Yes, self care is so much more than a bath, but sometimes, that’s all the time that moms get. I’m blessed with a husband that happily gives me an hour to just relax in the tub, but I know it’s a luxury many don’t get. You deserve self care time. If you’re limited on time though, you’ll love these luxurious self care products to get you feeling pampered in no time.
Y’all know I love natural based products. This Fruit Smoothie lipgloss from Erin’s Faces is vegan, made with organic ingredients (like strawberries), and is super hydrating- not sticky. I grabbed the color Daybreak, and it’s the most beautiful sheer warm orangey brown. I love how it makes my lips feel, and the color is such a beautiful neutral for day-to-day. Now I want all the other shades! Use code SPRINGLIPS for 10% off through June 15, 2021.
One of my favorite things to do when I’m in the tub is getting lost in a good book. It’s nice to unplug for a bit and immerse into another world. The Woman with the Blue Star by Pam Jenoff is an unforgettable testament to the power of friendship and the extraordinary strength of the human will to survive. This book drew me in quickly and I really enjoyed the storyline. Pre-order it on Amazon and let me know what you think!
Something that makes me feel a bit more pampered when I have time to myself is a nice deep condition and hair treatment. Roux® Weightless Precious Oils Luminous Shampoo, Softening Conditioner, and Restorative Hair Masque were just what I needed to feel like I was at the hair salon. I have been sick the past few days, and it felt SO good to wash and deep condition my hair. Made me feel human again! The Roux® Weightless Precious Oils set contains eight precious oils—argan, avocado, castor, coconut, jojoba, olive, sunflower seed and sweet almond oils plus vitamins E and B5 help restore essential moisture and help control frizz without weighing hair down. The shampoo restores essential moisture, adds shine and controls frizz- something this curly girl is always in need of. The conditioner and masque enhance softness and shine without adding sulfates or mineral oils.
As I head straight towards my mid-thirties, I am really conscious of my skin. I work really hard to take care of it and wash my face, exfoliate, tone, use serum, and moisturize. Over the past year I’ve really enjoyed using hyaluronic acid for my face. I have normal to dry skin, and it really helps combat dryness and wrinkles. The LiftActiv Supreme H.A. Wrinkle Corrector from Vichy is formulated with 1.5% pure Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C and Vichy Volcanic Water to plump skin for a visible filling effect. It has clinically proven results of a 47% decrease in wrinkles and 60% decrease in fine lines in 6 weeks. I also appreciate that it’s fragrance-free, paraben-free, and non comedogenic. I absolutely love how this has made my skin look!
It was like heaven when I opened up the goodies from A Loyal Society. The Botanical Bath Soaking Salts smell luxurious and are an easy way to add relaxing vibes to your self care routine. They are handcrafted with Celtic Sea Salt, pure Essential Oils, and Flower Petals, making way for the healing benefits of botanicals and aromatherapy with each bath. I loved the lavender scent! I also really like their Floral Bath Rose & Lavender Soaking Salts. They’re handcrafted with soothing rose petals, calming lavender buds and essential oils. Talk about relaxing! I poured mine into the bath, but if you’re not a fan of cleaning the tub after, it comes with a reusable sachet to drop into your tub. After my bath, I used the A Loyal Society Flower Water Facial Mist on my cleansed face. I plan on keeping it in the fridge to really feel refreshed. Talk about heavenly!

It’s really important to take time for yourself. You can’t fill from an empty cup, nor should you be expected to. Talk with your partner about the importance of mental health. One hour alone in the tub can make such a difference in your evening and your mental health. These self care products will get you feeling pampered, and your body will thank you inside and out.
