I am a #NOWWellness Influencer and have been given products to sample, however, I was not paid to write this post. The FTC requires that I disclose this but I was using and loving many of them before working with this company. All opinions are my own. Summer is in full gear and my family and I just returned from a lovely week in Maui. We arrived on the island, we strolled the beach at 4:00 am along with of the other tourists on Pacific Standard time, we ate Shaved Ice, snorkeled, ran, and swam our hearts out. It was one of the best vacations we’ve had as a family ever. My children are old enough to enjoy it, but still want to hang out with Mom and Dad. I know these moments are numbered and this might be the last summer that my kids are still “little.” I have an emerging pre-teen and he’s already showing signs of breaking away, so I cherish all of our experiences together. This summer, I vowed to blog less and spend more quality time with my kids. Aside from a few illnesses and bouts of migraines, I have stuck to that commitment. I reduced my workload aside from my NOW Wellness and a project near and dear to my heart. I am currently involved in an incredible assignment with one of my favorite Authors. She’s a well-known clinical psychologist who specializes in Mental Strength. I will have more on that later this summer, but I am really excited to share that experience with you, so stay tuned. As much as I slathered on the sunscreen in Maui, the sun was so strong that we came home with a few small burns. We also went from the humid tropical air to dry Southern California air, so needless to say our skin is like dry sandpaper. Trying to get my kids to apply lotion or cream post shower is near impossible. Oh, who am I kidding, I don’t care for that step either. Sometimes I just want to shower and go, who has time to apply lotion?! I love the idea of In Shower Lotion and have noticed many major brands coming out with these, but for multiple reasons, I won’t buy them. Mainly, they are full of ingredients that I can’t pronounce and since our skin is our largest organ, I not a fan of applying funky chemical ingredients. Plus, many of these companies test on animals– again, I’m not a fan. I love all living things and personally, these issues mean something to me. FYI: You apply In Shower Moisturizer to damp skin while in the shower. Then just lightly towel off and your skin will be silky smooth. I’m not even sure this would be classified as a DIY project because all you need is two products and you’re done, but I love this idea and it works. It saves time and my kids will actually apply this. They simply refuse to take the extra step of applying lotion, so this is our comprimise. CAUTION: Be careful not to apply too much– if the oil gets onto your shower floor, it could make it slippery and you could fall. Exercise Caution.
