When our guest blogger Marcie Macari told me she was sending me a sample of her Bloomin’ Belly Soaps, I thought, “cool, I’ll have a little sliver for my travel bag.”
She sent a huge package with full size samples of her gorgeous soaps and skin care products! Thanks so much Marcie, I’ve been in lather heaven ever since.
I’m a big soap fanatic. I used to make my own natural soaps and so I really appreciate a good soap. Of course, I never made anatomically correct pregnant torso soaps. These “Mamas in Bloom” soaps are so adorable and I have one that will be on its way to a pregnant friend in a few days. These would be so cute as a gift for a baby shower!
I LOVE the Grapefruit Ginger Silken Mama Body Butter. I can actually see the ginger in there and t’s so thick that it’s like rubbing pure butter on your skin. It’s wonderful for my really dry heels and I’ve also used it on chapped baby cheeks (you know how they sometimes get in the winter).
The body butter smells heavenly and I have a very difficult time keeping my 2 year old out of it. She loves when I slather it on her legs (they get super ashy and dry just like mine do). And it’s preservative free and made with wonderful stuff like shea and cocoa, so I don’t have to worry about her using it.
I’ve also enjoyed using the bar soaps – they’re so moisturizing due to the shea butter that I can even use them on my face and as a shaving cream without them drying out my skin. One note about natural soaps like Marcie’s: they don’t lather as much as you might be accustomed to due to the fact that they’re made without sodium lauryl sulfate like commercially available soaps.
The kids are enjoying the little jigsaw piece soaps too. Check out Bloomin’ Belly Soaps and see what all natural pampering delights await you!
