My Love Affair with Herbal Essences Body Wash

Yes, I may be kind of a geek, and I do sometimes fall in love with simple things and get all giddy and excited over them, that's just me ;)
I recently received a sample of Herbal Essences body wash, through Crowdtap, (my favorite website of them all!!), and from Herbal Essences, and I wasn't forced to write this post, BUT, I felt I had to after the heavenly experience I had with their, Hello Hydration body wash.
I am a sucker for bath and body products, and I grab up all of those beauty subscription boxes and deals on certain websites, so I have been around, if you know what I'm saying :O
I haven't tried this stuff until I received this sample, even though I was fully aware of the new body wash, and had my fair share of P&G inserts that came with coupons for it. I just didn't get around to hunting them down in the small town stores I frequent, and I haven't ordered any online yet... (my other addiction)
I wish the bottle would've been 10 times the size, since it's all now.... but I did save the empty bottle because the scent is so pure and fresh and just a whiff of it makes me remember the lathery, bubbly goodness!!
I don't know where to start here...I guess I'll go with the scent.
First off, it's blue, which is my favorite color! So, that was a huge plus!!
When I opened it, for some reason, I automatically thought of fairies and springtime and clouds and I think I saw a butterfly floating around the bathroom too! It was love at first sniff! I dumped a quarter of the bottle on my yellow body puffy sponge, and that was more than enough to have a layer of suds by my feet! (Which is one of the best feelings in the world to me!)
The whole bathroom smelled so fresh and clean, almost as if I just finished cleaning it myself! (Yes, I'm serious! It lasted for quite some time, and was long enough that I even pretended that I was in there scrubbing after my shower, shhhh!!!!)
Another bonus with this body wash, is the long lasting, moisturizing,tingly, silky feeling you get. I have extremely dry skin, and even I noticed a difference after just 1 use.
My legs are especially dry, (due in part to my RSD) but that didn't stop my Herbal Essences Hello Hydration body wash from making my legs look smooth and not feel so itchy!
I want to buy my favorite blue body wash again, but I think I'm going to try the rest of the scents too!
The other cool thing, possibly the coolest thing, is the price!
Compared to a few other brands I use, this is much more inexpensive and if you didn't know this, you would think it cost more than  the other body washes you may have used!
Oh! I almost forgot! I'm sure you have used their shampoos and conditioners before, right?? Well, these scents go hand in hand and can be fused together for some real delicious scents, way beyond your imagination!! (I love mixing and matching) mixing more, but either way, you go about it, you can't lose!!

Tuesday, May 6, 2014 Mothers Day Guide and Pinterest Sweeopstakes

I received a gift card for the purpose of this review. This post was made possible by Mom Spark Media. Thoughts are my own.

My most favorite Mothers Day gifts have always been the cute, handmade cards my little ones make. My fridge is filled with them, (I get them year round, and I store my collections in those nifty space bags). But those have always been the best presents ever! 
Oh, I almost forgot about those sweet flowers and dandelions that are picked from the yard! (Yes, even the sunflowers and tulips that aren't even ready to bloom just yet...) I do love those a bunch too! 
I'm not sure what my mom would think though, if I were to make her a handmade card at the age of 40, and she has hay fever, so I kind of get stuck each year when it comes to shopping for Mothers Day. Actually, most moms would still love a drawing from their daughters or sons at any age! (I just can't draw very well)
So, what kinds of gifts do you get for mom when you are a grown up?
One of the coolest gifts I have found, is a gift card for her favorite place to eat! If I'm lucky enough, she will take me with! 
Or, I could grab a couple gift cards, and take her out to eat for Mothers Day and present her with a lovely stick figure drawing! 
I would be happy to give her a night out with her friends too. She loves to go out with her friends from work at the end of the work week, and sometimes has to wait until payday, so this would give her a few extra nights out with friends, on me! 
What could be better than this, you ask? Well, it's funny you asked, because for a limited time, isn't just running a super deal on gift cards for dining, but now, they include movies too!! 
If your mom is anything like my mom, they love to watch the latest blockbusters in the theater. My mom has this peculiar thing she does, where she can answer any trivia question about any Hollywood news, celebrities, politicians, current events, history, musicians, she's like a real life, walking encyclopedia! But, she loves all kinds of movies, and I think she might love the popcorn too. 
If you are thinking of grabbing one of these awesome deals, you have to do it fast, because this show stopping deal is only available for a limited time! has launched, "What Does Mom Mean to You", Pinterest sweepstakes!
