Bath time is a very special time in our home. My husband and I usually take turns (ok, he does the majority of baths when he is home)! As many of you know, what I put in my body and on my body is very important to me, same goes for my family!
I came across Hugo Naturals about a year ago at my local organic store. It was winter time, and I had very dry skin. I bought a jar of their sugar scrub to try. I immediately fell in love! The sugar scrub left my whole body soft and moisturized. I'm the kinda girl that lathers up in lotion every time I take a shower/bath, especially in the winter! My skin gets so dry! After using the sugar scrub, I did not need to use lotion, that's how soft and moisturized my skin was! It was amazing.
I've been using Burt's bees Baby Bee shampoo and wash and it was, well, getting the job done.
I contacted Hugo Naturals when planning this event and asked them for their support.
They graciously sent me some products to try!
This is what I received!
Oh-So-Soft Lotion - Chamomile & Vanilla, Baby Hugo Naturals Shampoo & Baby Wash - Chamomile & Vanilla, and Baby Hugo Naturals Unscented Diaper Cream.
The kind folks at Hugo Naturals also sent me three items just for me. You know, because with two small children, it's important for us moms (and dads too) to take the time to pamper and take care of ourselves!
For mom: Candy Cane Cupcake fizzy bath bomb (which was a seasonal item), Hugo Naturals Brown Sugar body polish Kumquat, Hugo Naturals Body Butter in 'uplifting mango.'
Let's start with the ingredients! I LOVE the fact that Hugo Naturals products NEVER contain any of the following: parabens, phenoxyethanol, SLS, PEG's, propylene glycol, petroleum products, artificial color or artificial fragrances. I LOVE that! Their products are also gluten and soy-free, vegan and are never tested on animals!
Oh, and another reason I love their products is because of the way they smell! I have a very keen sense of smell. I can smell a poopy diaper from across the room, and let me tell you, these products seem to play romantically with your senses. Not only do they smell great, but they work awesome as well.
I first tried the body wash and lotion on my boys at bath time. The body was is great. It cleanses the skin in a gentle, noticeable way and the lotion... oh, the lotion. My boys' had little bumps on their legs from being so dry. Not the case anymore. Although I am all out of the lotion, it works awesome. I really need to get my hands on some more :)
I've not used the diaper cream yet, and not sure if it is safe for use with cloth diapers. Whenever my son gets diaper rash (which fortunately for me, is not too often) I always use disposable diapers on him if using a rash cream. I have a few Seventh Generation chlorine free sposies on hand for if and when he gets a rash! I just don't want to take the chance of ruining my beloved cloth diapers :)
I have used all three of the products given to me for me! The brown sugar Kumquat body polish is awesome. Again, no need to apply moisturizer after using this! It is totally hydrating. I love it! It smells so scrumptious too! I actually wanted to eat some while I was putting it on... but I didn't! The body butter too is amazing. It is really thick and really gets those areas (think knees, elbows and feet) silky soft! I love it!
One night I lit some candles poured a glass of wine (after the littles were in bed) and ran a bath! I dropped the candy cane bath bomb in and was so surprised at what I saw. The water got really fizzy and the smell of fresh crunchy candy canes filled the air! The bath bombs are scented with natural essential oils and leave your skin totally soft and lightly scented! They also are awesome!
