As a stay at home working mom of two little loves, ages 3 & 1, my days consists of running around after them and using the following phrases and terms: STOP , NO, SIT, GET DOWN, BECUSE I SAID SO, NO , NO, NO, SHHHH, PUT THE CAT DOWN, NO HITTING, PLEASE JUST STOP, EAT! about 50 times an hour ( seriously!! ) most days out of the week I wear mean mom bun that’s usually sky high due to the growing dreadlocks in the center of my hair (I am not intentionally sporting the dread look ) there’s hardly time to spoil myself or even get in a nice shower without being bombarded by little people. So when my friend Jennifer Bary from Pure Romance sent me over some Bodycare products naturally I couldn’t wait for bedtime so I could indulge in these goodies and pamper myself!
The Tropical Melon & Pomegranate bottles alone got me excited with it’s pink and yellow and gold details. If you know me you know I love all things pink and gold. Not to mention they smell absolutely delish!!
The first product I tried was “Coochy” Exotic Escape Conditioning Shaving Cream. I know the name totally made me giggle but I think its catchy hehe. You obviously ,based off of the name can, use it…. there…. as well, anywhoooo! It had been close to two weeks since I had last shaved my legs. YEP! shameful. No judging haha. I certainly needed to do something and this was the perfect product to help me out. I was getting tired of wearing pants to cover up my braid-able leg hairs especially in this summer heat. Some of the other shaving cream products that I’ve used in the past would usually run down my leg or wash off immediately when it hit the water this one is different and it goes on so fine and smooth. When you think it’s washed off or dried up think again! Just rub with some water and it lathers up. I found that a little goes a long way with this one. I usually have to shave again a few days later or I risk slicing someone open with my razor-sharp leg stubble lol Luckily that was not the case here. My legs stayed so smooth for the entire week. For me that is crazy. Now that’s just how it worked for me! How awesome is that! Plus the conditioning shave cream is so moisturizing that it can be used as a hair conditioner too! so heck yeah I jumped all over that especially with my dreadlocks in the making. My tangles brushed right out and my hair smelled phenomenal. Definitely going to be incorporating this into my hair routine from now on.
The next day I decided to treat myself to a bubble bath with “Excape” Bubble Bath. This bubble bath wasn’t just any ole ordinary bubble bath with flat bubbles that you can hear slowly popping shortly after you step into the tub. these were thick and fluffy and oh so smelled goody bubbles!!! It was so soothing and relaxing, must have something to do with the certified organic fruit and flower extracts in the escape bubble bath. There’s just something about seeing your toes peeking through the top of a big fluffy cloud of bubbles that makes you feel like you’re at a spa and relaxing! Right? Such a treat especially for this mama and my tired feet.
After my hot soak I use the “Body Dew” Silky Body Oil . When I say silky body oil it’s for real it’s not like normal ole baby oil that is super greasy and it feels like its not soaking into your skin at all. This stuff made my skin feel hydrated and also left a really wonderful shine to my dry skin left thirsty from the summer heat. BTW even my hubs noticed my silky smooth shiny skin!! Ladies if you’re looking for a body oil that will hydrate your skin and provide a sweet shine “Body Dew” is for you. Plus it’s like an after shower perfume it is “specially formulated with a unique blend of essential oils to keep skin feeling hydrated and sensually smooth all day long” ummm yes, please! I’ll take a lifetime supply!!! Note: I found that spraying the Body Oil into my hand and applying it worked better for me rather than spring directly onto my body to avoid wasting it. I also got better coverage when applying with my hands.
I’m most certainly going to have to contact my friend Jen and get some more of these products and also find out what other stuff they have. I had no idea that Pure Romance carried all of these different products. I, and as I’m sure others, thought that Pure Romance was solely an adult romance company but no there’s so much more you’d be surprised. They also have an all-natural line which I cannot wait to get my hands on to use for my kids! I’ll be sure to leave Jen’s information so you too can contact her and check out all the other products they have to offer or have a party. Doesn’t a girls night pampering part sound like a blast!?
I’m so glad I was able to share these products with you. I’m certain you will love them and if for some crazy reason you don’t you can just send them to me lol but I doubt that will be the case!!!! I’m telling you you’ll love this stuff.
