If you are a busy mom like me, you know it is rare to ever escape and have time to yourself. I love my daughter dearly and my new son to be but that does not mean I can handle them 24/7 without escaping. Personally, I do not need a vacation or anything extravagant like that. I simply need 30 min to an hour of relaxing and distressing time at the end of the day. One of my favorite ways to escape from the chaos and stress is to simply take a nice hot bubble bath and pamper myself. Does this happen often for me? Not at all! I am lucky to even take a 5 min shower by myself without my daughter barging in. Those rare times that I do get to “escape” in my bubble bath make all the difference in recharging myself.
For the past few weeks, I have been participating in the #NiveaEscape challenge. The challenge was to turn my bathroom into a tranquil escape. To help with this challenge Nivea sent me a pair of very comfy Havaianas flip flops (my new favorite summertime house shoes), a 1-800-Flowers GC and their newest bottle of fragrance body wash, Frangipani. A more common name of the Frangipani is the Plumeria, which has a very soft, fruity, jasmine and gardenia like scent. Every time I smell this body wash I Imagine being on a tropical island sipping a pina colada (a virgin one of course). Not only does it smell amazing but also contains moisturizing beads with sunflower oil, leaving the skin oh so soft. This shower gel was also featured as one of the Editor’s Favorites in the July issue of Allure Magazine. I can now see why!
Having the new Nivea Frangipani shower gel in my routine has made my “escape” time in the bath that much better. With its beautiful scent my mind takes me to my own island escape with no worries or cares. I also love how moisturized and clean my skin feels is left feeling all day after washing with this shower gel. I actually forgot to add lotion to my body today and I cannot even tell because my skin is still so soft. I may not get to “escape” everyday but those rare times I do, I enjoy escaping with my mind and the scent of this shower gel makes it easy with visions of being on a tropical island far away.
