Friends, these past two weeks have been a whirlwind. Work has been kicking my butt. Caleb’s two-year-old tantrums are wearing me down. The housework is piling up. And, I am in a season of personal transition. Needless to say, your girl has been stressed. Taking care of myself was the absolute last thing on my list. Yes, I know that self-care is important, but I have been doing a horrible job at making it a priority.
Have you been there before?
During a particularly heinous night in which my body was completely on edge, a friend suggested that I try a hot shower to relax and turn my brain off.
Why have I not been doing this all along? I turned the knob to the hottest temperature and stood in the shower until it felt like every shred of worry and anxiety had left my body. Don’t laugh but I stepped out the shower in complete zen mode. Long, hot showers at night have become my newest (and easiest) way to unwind my body and mind before bedtime. It’s like my own little spa retreat.
So, when Olay reached out to see if I would be interested in trying their Olay Moisture Ribbons Plus body wash, I was all over it for two reasons. One, I am all about everyday luxuries. Two, this dry winter air is beating my skin down. If you live in a city like Chicago, you know how harsh those cold temperatures can be.
When it comes to skincare, “Olay” is a name that I trust to put out the best products. The Olay Moisture Ribbons Plus body wash has not disappointed. The dual ribbon technology contains both cleansers and moisturizers and creates this lather that will immediately have your skin feeling softer.
Aside from the rich formula, the products come in two scents which I absolutely love. It’s great having two options that I can choose from depending on my mood (or the time of day). For my longer evening showers, I use the Shea + Lavender variety. In the morning, the Manuka honey body wash is my go-to.
These products joined my skincare lineup a week ago and they are such a welcome addition. The double ribbon formula creates such a rich and moisturizing lather. Having shifted my mind to view showers as a chance to “Whoosah,”
Between year-end deadlines and holiday to-dos, life gets very busy very quickly. Take a look around and see how you can turn everyday activities like showering into a mini-retreat.
I want to invite you to join me in the #WinterSkinChallenge and usher in a little luxury into your daily routine! Learn more about this fabulous body wash and grab yours here.
