Me time.

DoveWhen you have a toddler, you don’t get much down time. Heck, when you have kids you don’t get much down time (except when you’re sleeping). Things you used to take for granted like showering, grocery shopping, using an ATM, putting gas in the car, become a battle. Sometimes finding a moment of “me-time” is almost impossible.

Along with lacking some pretty serious alone time, I’m first to admit that I’m still rocking some natty clothes and my skin isn’t glowing at all. The few-and-far between quiet moments I do happen to miraculously get are filled with doing those things that are challenging with my toddler (like going to the bank, the grocery store she doesn’t like (but I do), and showering!).

Showering is one of those things that’s hit and miss. Either it works – and when it does it’s awesome – or it goes horridly wrong. For me to grab a quick shower, the tot’s favorite show has to be on, she needs some sort of food item to enjoy, the bathroom door has to be left open – as well as the shower curtain. Yeah, not really relaxing or successful. Sometimes I don’t even get to wash the shampoo out of my hair before some sort of drama unfolds (mainly toddler needing to poop, which seems to happen every time I am in the midst of shaving my legs or lathering that shampoo).

Okay, okay, here’s the deal. I had the chance to take one of the new premium body washes from Dove for a spin this last week. This meant I needed to blissfully shower for a week (YES, every day) to see if the stuff really works. I enlisted the husband to be on toddler watch for 10-minutes before heading to work so I could jump in and lather up without distraction – and it was THE BEST.

This body wash contains the greatest concentration of NutriumMoisture technology in Dove’s collection, and with three kinds, you can’t go wrong. I found that the Softening Body Wash totally delivers on its touts of being able to deliver softer skin with less dry spots in just a week. Just after one use, my husband noted how I looked nice. Summer means swimsuits and I need all the help I can get.

I’ll be honest, the body wash’s scent isn’t heavenly. It’s not like this stuff smells bad, but it’s definitely not blissful. With an almost generic lotion kind of smell, I found a spritz of lavender oil to help compliment my newly soft skin. Even my feet were nice and soft, ready to enjoy playing in the mud with the tot!
