Dove body wash and a GIVEAWAY!!



The summer heat 'round here makes a girl wanna run around town wearing nothing but a bathing suit.
Buuuuuut, I have refrained from doing that.
Shorts and tanks are certainly a part of my daily attire though, and like you, I want my skin to be soft and looking as healthy as possible.


The lovely folks at Dove sent me a bottle of their new Visiblecare Softening Creme Body Wash with Nutrium Moisture.  It's from their revolutionary line of premium body wash, and will give you visibly more beautiful skin in just one week! 
Yes, puh-lease!

I mean, check this stuff out!  It's looks like Cool Whip, lathers up to feel like pure silk, and smells absolutely devine.  You can have your own personal little spa time in the comfort of your own bath tub!
In the mornings I look forward to my shower.  A place where I can indulge a little in cleanliness and comfort, and come out feeling rejuvinated and revived--ready for the day.  I close my eyes, pamper myself in this fabulous, frothy body wash, and try to pretend like I can't hear Lael telling me that she needs to tee-tee.  This, of course, is her favorite time to use the bathroom.  Exactly what I want to hear when I'm dripping in shampoo and covered in my body wash.  But whatev.


I used this body wash as a shaving cream to shave my legs and got a nice, smooth and close shave.  My skin is soft and being rid of its dry spots.  YOU can also have visibly more beautiful skin from a body wash!
