Mom: Get Glamorous! A Contest Is Brewing...

We all have favorite things; even Oprah has a show based around it. If you've been here for a while, you'll notice when I absolutely love a product and sometimes mention that it's one of my favorites. So have you been paying attention lately? ;)

In the next few days a contest will be launching on A Girl's Gotta Spa!....a contest specifically for moms here within the US. I'm a little biased being a mom myself and I felt there had to be another mom out there that must be in some dire need of pampering. Is it you?

Here's a few teasers about this contest that I call "Mom: Get Glamorous!":

The winning mom will receive a beauty prize pack that is a combination of makeup, skin care and other beauty items.

This prize pack contains 10 of my favorite products and values at $300.

Want to know one of the products in it? Boots No7 Restore & Renew.

I'll have a guest judge helping me out to chose the winning mom. She is also one of my favorite moms and is an editor of a popular beauty magazine.

This same beauty magazine is also adding to the prize pack with one of their own for the winning mom.

If you need some pampering---you want to win this prize pack.

So moms, spread the word to any mom you feel may be interested in winning some very fabulous beauty products. And stay tuned here; I'll be announcing the contest and all of the details in the next few days...the contest starts July 6th after all. :)

Review: Softsoap Nutra-Oil Moisturizing Body Wash

With the summer heat really bringing it on, many of us are baring a little more skin, but is your skin ready to be bare or are you still showing signs of winter skin?

I was approached to try out the new Softsoap Nutra-Oil Moisturizing Body Wash and I thought, Why not? I am already a fan of Softsoap's Pure Cashmere foaming moisturizing hand soaps; I have it at both my bathroom sinks and the kitchen sink (Pure Cashere smells so very nice). With how often I have to wash my hands because of the baby, their hand soaps don't dry out my hands and leave them fabulously moisturized. I figure, the new Nutra-Oil Moisturizing Body Wash can do the same.

Nutra-Oil is a moisturizing body wash infused with extracts of nutrient oils, yet it is non-greasy. I am a girl who loves bubbles and Nutra-Oil doesn't disappoint. Lots of bubbles and silky soft skin, what more can a girl ask for? Nutra-oil comes in Almond Oil & Shea Butter and Olive Oil & Aloe Vera. The Almond Oil & Shea Butter has a slight citrus fragrance and Olive Oil & Aloe Vera has a great melon scent. The Nutra-Oil also comes in a whopping 18oz. bottle for only about $5 (which I find pretty amazing).

Also, Softsoap Nutra-Oil is encouraging women to take the "silky dress test" to prove that the formula effectively absorbs into their skin leaving only deeply-hydrated skin behind. Don't have a silky dress to test? Well, at www.silkydresstest.com, you can vie for the chance to win a one-of-a-kind dress by Laura Bennett (of Project Runway, Season 3 fame). The silky dress winner will be flown to New York to meet and collaborate on a dress with Laura.

Tables Are Turned! I get Interviewed on Pierce Mattie's Blog

As most of you know, I've been on maternity leave from my writing on Pierce Mattie PR's blogs. I return next week after my 2 month hiatus. I'm usually the one doing the interviewing around there for posts; but the tables were turned and they interviewed me. It's nice to be able to return to a job you love and know that they love you. :)

Review: KLEAN Bath & Body

I received KLEAN Bath & Body's Sugar Body Polish in Blue Hawaii, KLEAN Mist in Grass and Extreme Moisturizing Shea Lotion in Zen Tea. I loved these products so much, that I placed an order right away for their Pearlized Bath & Body Wash (and another lotion!). While most companies scents for their products seem to almost always duplicate Bath & Body Works in some way or another, KLEAN really stands out for their unique product scents making this a very memorable pampering experience.

While I am in absolute love with Grass and Zen Tea, my stand out favorite is Blue Hawaii. Blue Hawaii is a sweet and tropical combination of coconut and jasmine. This scent is divine. DIVINE. Anyone who has stopped by my house since I received these products has had to put up with me forcing the Sugar Polish under their noses exclaiming, "You have got to smell this!"

Grass reminds me of that first time everyone's lawn's are cut in Spring...or how the air smells just after it rains. The scent is soothing and clean. Zen Tea (Green Tea) also gives off that really clean and refreshing fragrance.

KLEAN's Sugar Polish is fabulous. It contains pure unrefined Mexican cane sugar, coconut & macadamia nut oils, vegetable glycerin, crushed coconut and coconut milk. Your skin is going to feel so soft and silky smooth from using this product.

KLEAN's Extreme Moisture Shea Lotion
is equally as fabulous. You can tell the quality of a product by looking at the ingredients. The two top ingredients in this lotion is aloe and shea butter confirming that it can moisturize even the driest skin.

KLEAN Mist has really great "staying power." It's not a fragrance that will only linger for an hour and then fade away. I've used this Mist on myself and also on my bathroom's linen shower curtain. It is a dry oil spray, so it didn't stain the linen and it didn't feel greasy when I sprayed it on myself.

KLEAN's Pearlized Bath & Body Wash is skin softening and such a great way to start the day in your shower or to relax after a hard day in the evening.

With products this good and scents that stand out among all others, KLEAN Bath & Body has become one of my top ten favorite beauty products.

Review: Baby Essencia

No matter your age, pampering feels good. Just ask Brody. He's 6 weeks old today and loves that his mommy is blessed to get products she can lavish upon him and his 3 brothers from time to time. Lucky for him Essencia sent some baby products his way.

(Here's Brody in his Spa Tub)

We received Essencia's Baby Travel Pack, which includes their Body Lotion, Shampoo & Body Wash, Bum Balm and Baby Face Soap. Essencia's products are all natural and this baby travel pack smells of lavender and chamomile.

Their Baby Face Soap is made of essential oils and made Brody's skin so soft. I admit, I too, used this soap a few times for myself! The Shampoo & Body Wash and Body Lotion was so gentle and the lavender fragrance was soothing & calming. Brody is colicky, so this really helped save my sanity several times when giving him a bath with these products.

The Bum Balm looked like it was going to be a thick paste, but I was really surprised to find it to be more of a thin oil. I really hate those thick pasty creams like Desitin, so their Bum Balm was perfect.


(Here's my spa baby in his Ralph Lauren bathrobe--so spoiled!)

Essencia really has some great baby products, and they also have products for moms-to-be, as well as bath and body products for moms and non-moms alike. Brody and I give them a thumbs up.

Review: Boots No7 Reviving Eye Gel

If you are a mom of a newborn, a night owl, an insomniac or something inbetween, chances are that you have baggy puffy circles under your eyes. Thank goodness for Boots No7's Reviving Eye Gel, otherwise it would be blatantly obvious that I am quite sleep deprived these days.

Boots No7's Reviving Eye Gel is a greaseless gel containing witch hazel and horse chestnut with ProVitamin B5 decreasing the appearance of those bags and moisturizing them at the same time. You don't need much, just a small dab around each eye, to see a difference.

I totally concur with my fellow beauty bloggers who are reviewing the Boots line of products; it really is a great beauty brand and one that appears to be able to live up to the claims it makes about their products. Find more Boots No7 products.

A.Che Marilyn Basket Handbag

Ever since I wrote about Amanda Che's new line of handbags, I have secretly had a lemming for her Marilyn Basket. Actually her entire Marilyn line is quite eye catching, but there is something fun yet trendy, yet total diva about it. I can totally see myself with this handbag heading out to the mall with my girlfriends on a Saturday afternoon or having it in tow when going out on a date with my husband.

Maybe it is the youthful look it exudes? Since Marilyn died so young, her beauty remains timeless and I can see that in this bag.

Review: Borghese Salt Scrub

I LOVE exfoliating. I love my scrubs so much, that I really have to put the reigns on myself not to go into exfoliation overload. There is just something about sloughing off that lifeless dead skin to reveal vibrant glowing healthy skin underneath.

I was so excited when I received Borghese's Salt Scrub because I have heard that their products are amazing. I was surprised when I opened the jar and didn't actually see any salt, but instead what resembled their Fango Mud instead. The scent was wonderful and was the total essence of spa. Of course, it wasn't mud in this salt scrub, it was avacado, mango and shea butters. It also has olive and grape seed oils, sea salt and pumice.

Borghese's Salt Scrub felt so wonderful on my skin. I've even used it a few times after coming back from the beach and it was so soothing taking all of that beach dirt off my freshly tanned skin.
