Let's get CLEAN! With Body & Soul Products

As part of the celebration of pampering that began last week, with the beginning of the 
Giveaway of a sample bag 
(you have ONE MORE DAY TO ENTER!!)
we are looking at getting clean today. 

After prepping for the walk yesterday, and the walk, we need to get clean. Becky's shop, Body & Soul Products, has wonderful products to achieve this.

I am skeptical of any soaps that aren’t Dial or Lever. I have tried goat milk soap, and honestly it is not my favorite.
So it was with trepidation that I tried the new Lavender Seas Soap from Body & Soul. I find it doesn’t lather as well as those store bought kinds, but once you get some suds, it is lovely. 
Lavender Seas Mud Soap
After I was finished washing my face, I noticed there were no dry spots. Dry, flakey skin in the trouble areas are a common sight after using those store bought soaps. With the Lavender Seas Soap - my face was soft, with no dry spots, and dare I say had a bit of a glow to it. Anything that can clean without dry flakiness afterwards, and that leaves skin soft and beautiful is just what this ageing mother needs.

Sounds like this one would be a little rough, for the guys. That couldn't be farther from the truth. 
Beer Shampoo Bar
This shampoo is gentle but effective. I was surprised at the lather and when I was finished washing my hair, it felt so clean. It seemed to get out all the gunk I put in it, and left it clean, yet not dry and frizzy. That is an accomplishment with my hair. I have been regularly torturing my hair for years now, and I can’t remember when my hair felt so clean.

Now that we are clean, we need to moisturize, right?

The description says:

Frosting you say? What's that? It's an awesomely smooth & silky feeling body butter that will melt into your skin leaving it feeling so luxurious!

Well, I can now say that is so true!
Coffee & Cream Whipped Body Frosting or  Butter 
I have mentioned how dry my hands get. Especially in the winter. One year I had to resort to Bag Balm! (yes, for cows udders and horses and pets!). That worked, but was greasy and smelled, well, not so sweet. 
When I received my goody bag, I was very curious about this ‘body frosting’. To be honest I was a little hesitant to be putting frosting on my body. Well, I opened it, it smelled so good. I sampled some on one hand, it was so soft and smooth going on, smelled great, not overpowering. But what really convinced me how good this stuff was came later. Hours later, I noticed that the one hand I put it on was so soft, the other hand was so NOT. The hand that I did not put it on was so rough compared to the smooth softness of the other, I was upset that I hadn't put it on both. So now, I put it on both my hands, my arms, chest, legs, etc. Soft smooth skin all over.

Cucumber Green Tea Mask
Knowing that all these products are all natural and fresh makes me feel even cleaner. Tonight, I am looking forward to the Cucumber and Green Tea Facial Mask, after the hectic dinnertime. Cucumber is known for its anti-inflammatory and skin tightening properties, and rich in vitamins, minerals and enzymes essential for strong cell growth and repair. Green Tea is said to help repair the effects of aging and environmental factors, and honey is said to have anti-aging properties. All these ingredients in a relaxing facial mask is sure to be a great way to end the day. 

I just may switch over my soaps and shampoos and lotions to these products instead of the store bought, chock full of unnatural ingredients, products. Body & Souls Products are gentle, effective and all natural. 

Remember, you can still enter the giveaway to get yourself a sample of these fine products.
