As moms, we usually put ourselves last. Our kids and husbands get the best of us. We just don’t take care of our bodies like we should. It seems like too much trouble, too much effort. Does this scenario sound familiar? You scour the Internet to find the best in all natural and organic personal care products for your sweet babies, but when it comes time for yourself, you just grab whatever is on sale with no regard for your own body. The baby’s bath time is gentle and nourishing. Your shower is full of skin drying chemicals. You don’t have to live that way. On a recent trip to our favorite Target, we were naturally inspired to afford ourselves the same kind of natural, healthy soaps and body washes we demand for our kids.
Turn Your Shower Into a Spa
Is your shower your only moment for a little serenity? Let your shower (or bath) be your spa! The best spas in the world use high quality, naturally sourced ingredients in their treatments. Don’t use junk for cleaning your skin. Whether you prefer bar soap or body wash, there are some decadent, natural choices for you that will transform your shower from a daily task to a daily treat.
For bar soap and body wash, Tom’s of Maine at Target now offers their beauty bars and body washes in new scents that are decadent and really will make you feel like you are in a spa. Tom’s cleansers used to come in Daily Moisture, Deodorant, Sensitive, and Relaxing. Now there is so much more available and you won’t be able to get enough. A stop at the personal care aisle in Target will give you the following choices:
- Creamy Coconut, with virgin coconut oil*
- Lavender Tea Tree, with raw shea butter*
- Fragrance Free Sensitive, with aloe vera
Creamy Coconut is sweet and rich, like dessert for your skin. Lavender Tea Tree is calming and healing, perfect for an over exhausted mama. The Fragrance Free Sensitive is unscented, but no less wonderful to use. All varieties are gentle on skin, while maintaining your skin’s natural moisture.
As with Tom’s of Maine‘s other wonderful personal care products at Target, the beauty bars and body washes are never tested on animals and contain no animal ingredients. They use Rainforest Alliance Certified palm oil, and they contain a dermatologist-tested mild and easy-rinsing formula that is gentle on skin. Both are sulfate-free and gentle on skin, with no artificial fragrances or preservatives. These yummy fragrances are made from the finest natural ingredients and plant sources. These cleansers are easy rinsing and you won’t believe how amazing your skin will feel after your shower. The beauty bars now include 25% more soap per bar and use a triple milled formula for a rich and creamy lather. Both come in 100% recyclable packaging. The bars actually come in a single-layer 100% post-consumer waste paper wrapper, meaning less water and energy use and a smaller carbon footprint. Good for you, good for the planet; what’s not to love?
Care for Sensitive Skin Naturally
If you are one of the many women with sensitive skin, you might be concerned about any fragrance, no matter how natural, on your skin. Any little thing can irritate you. Skip the scents with a natural moisturizing body wash that is fragrance free for sensitive skin from Tom’s. This variety is exclusive to Target. Available in the beauty bar and the body wash, this cleanser is just as rich as the scented varieties. So often products for sensitive skin don’t actually leave you feeling clean and they definitely don’t leave you feeling pampered. With the Sensitive variety from Tom’s of Maine at Target, you can still turn your shower into Mom’s Personal Spa now matter how sensitive your skin may be!
