I love to use yummy smelling soaps and shampoos in the shower. My shower time is like a private little getaway. If I lock my bedroom door and have the water running and the fan on, I can’t hear the “MOM, he took my toy!” or the “MOM, I’m hungry! When are we going to eat?” or the “She’s hogging the TV and I want to use it!” Shower time is awesome. And when I have a bottle of fancy body wash, it’s just that much more like a little vacation than if it’s just a bar of soap.
So I was excited to try out this line of Weleda Creamy Body Washes. I received the Wild Rose and the Pomegranate in the mail. The brightly colored bottles look awesome in my shower (yes, I know it’s silly, but it’s all about the experience. I was excited to try them out. Both smell awesome, and the lather is intense! SUPER creamy! They’re all made out of natural, good for your body ingredients, so the smell isn’t just perfumes. And, most importantly, after showering, I felt clean, and I still smelled good.
But, there was one afternoon lately, here in the Pacific Northwest, that was not so summery… It was overcast and a little bit rainy, and I was FREEZING. So, I decided to take a bath! A nice, hot soak in the tub was exactly what I wanted to warm me up, since my hoodie, yoga pants, and slippers weren’t doing the trick. As I was filling the tub, I was thinking I really wished I had some bubble bath. Then I thought of the Weleda Body Washes in my shower, and wondered if they would work. I figured it couldn’t hurt, and at the very least, it would make the water smell good. So I opted for the Pomegranate, since that’s my favorite. Guess what! Tons of thick, luxurious bubbles! I was in the tub for a glamorous 45 minutes, and there were still bubbles when I reluctantly pulled my raisin fingers and toes out of the tub to re-enter the real world. Total bonus!
So a week later, when my daughter got a new Barbie water toy and wanted to use it in my BIG bathtub, I let her use some too, as a special treat. She has always had sensitive skin, so bubble baths have been few and far between for her. She loved the thick, yummy smelling bubbles, and when she got out, her skin was just fine. Not dried out at all. Can’t wait to use it this way again after spending my Saturdays in the bleachers watching my kids play football and soccer, likely in the rain! That’s when a hot, luxurious bath or shower is really the best.
