Pampering Myself for Mother's Day

With Mother’s Day around the corner, it is time to not only think about gifts and celebrating other Mother’s, it is the perfect time to think about pampering ourselves. I definitely plan on pampering myself this Mother’s Day.

For all that we do each and every day as caregivers (being a Mother or not), Mother’s Day is a reminder of the love and caring that goes into raising a family. It’s not easy. I am constantly caring for those around me and I am determined to pamper myself a bit as I am always pampering others.

This year I am indulging in some of my favorite Dove products. Have you tried the new Body Wash Mousse? I am OBSESSED with it! I have stocked up on all my favorites at Sam’s Club because who am I kidding… with a large family, I am always sharing my favorite Dove bath and body products. Buying them in larger bulk packs at Sam’s Club is a smart way to buy them and save.

While I’m there stocking up on the rest of my essentials, I pick up large packs of my Dove pampering favorites like Dove Nourishing Body Wash, Dove Exfoliating Body Polish and the Body Wash Mousse.

I swear before one of my children runs to get in the shower, I hear them yell… “Mom, where is the Dove Body Wash?”. They know a good product once they’ve used it. With the Refresh & Renew Body Wash Collection from Sam’s Club, all the skin types in my household are pampered, but I want to talk about pampering myself and how I plan to do it this Mother’s Day.

Since Mother’s Day is on a Sunday and I like to practice a bit of self-care on Sunday evenings, I plan to extend that into a whole pampering spa night. I will be using some of the Dove products that I stock up on at Sam’s Club.

I’ve been a longtime user of the Gentle Exfoliating Nourishing Body Wash to gently remove dead skin and I plan to use this all over. It is perfect this time of year to prep skin for summer. The Dove Exfoliating Body Polish takes exfoliating a step further, and I love using this on the driest parts of my body (though it can be used all over). I plan to give my legs and arms a good rub down with the Body Polish. The burst of velvety macadamia and rice milk fragrance is super soothing to my senses.

I just love rich lather and the scent of the Sweet Cream with Peony Body Wash, so I will be indulging in a bit of a double-cleanse as I soak in the tub. Did I mention that it smells so good? I use this one in the shower every chance I get!

Now, for my favorite new Dove product, the Body Wash Mousse, which I have been reaching for a lot. I plan to use this new product a bit differently for my pampering spa night routine. This rose oil infused mousse is what you would expect from a mousse; it’s nice and fluffy but maybe richer than you would expect. It is super creamy once applied to the skin, and the rose scent is so beautiful. I like how nourishing it is, so I have been shaving with it, and that’s how I plan to use it in my pampering routine.

You see, the rich lather is infused with skin-natural nutrients to nourish skin so it creates the perfect surface for shaving; skin is left looking healthy and feeling soft all day long.

I am also picking up extras of my Dove favorites from Sam’s Club and gifting some for Mother’s Day; I really think these make great gifts. I love gifting pampering and self-care to others. Don’t you think that’s a great idea?

I am stuffing a fluffy blanket, candle and a pretty mug plus my favorite Dove pampering products into a crate and giving them to some new Mom’s for Mother’s Day. Everyone deserves a night off and extra pampering.
