Vacation In A Bottle


I think I’ve been pretty She-Moisture-Body-WashTarget1spoiled growing up…I mean not spoiled in terms of gimmee, gimmee, gimmee…but I have had the luck to grow up in Sunny Southern California, specifically Orange County. I also lived in Los Angeles a short period of time, and more recently I lived for about 11 years in Sunny San Diego. I gotta say, life doesn’t get much better than San Diego. However, it wasn’t until I needed to move (San Diego’s cost of living is pretty up there!) to Sacramento that I really appreciated where I used to live (and I continue dreaming that I will once again return). For some of you, you may think California is all the same, and for those of you living in this great state, know that indeed Northern California and Southern California are like two different states entirely. However, I must admit that Northern California is finally growing on me (it’s been 1 year and 2 months exactly).

Anyway, so I know I am rambling, but my point is every now and then it is nice to feel as though I am back in San Diego. And pretty much for about 5 minutes a day, I do. Every day, I take a mini vacation…or I guess Staycation in my bathroom. There is a product that I absolutely love and I originally found while living…can anyone guess?? Yep, San Diego!  The product is Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Foaming Milk & Body Wash…aka my little vacation in a bottle.

I absolutely adore the Coconut smell. It’s not some sad imitation of coconut, but a tropical coconut oasis. It must be the combination of coconut and hibiscus to create this ultimate tropical scent. Now, it’s not just the smell, but the performance is phenomenal as well. It has a rich lather, (which is also great barrier when shaving) and it doesn’t dry me out like some other body washes do. (However, I always apply a moisturizer afterwards)  And for those of you who like to have a fabulous bubble bath, this product does not disappoint. You will have rich bubbles that do not diminish over the time of your bath.

While the Southern California girl in me loves the scent and performance of Shea Moisture’s Coconut & Hibiscus Foaming Milk & Body Wash, the Northern California girl in me appreciates that it does not have the following: Parabens, Phthalates, Paraffin, Gluten, Propylene Glycol, Mineral Oil, Synthetic Fragrance, Synthetic Color, DEA, or Sulfates. The animal lover in me also loves that this product does not test on animals. Of course, the fact that this product claims to help firm and tone the skin…extra bonus!

I have found this product at Target, Walgreens, Ulta and the Shea Moisture website. In all locations it has retailed for just under $10.

If you need a little mini vacation, or Staycation, this just might be the product for you. Go ahead, give it a try, I think you are going to love it as much as I do.

I did not receive any compensation for this post, nor do I work for any of the companies listed above.
