I was lucky enough recently to receive a delightful box of products from Arm & Hammer Baking Soda through the group MomCentral. The basket included box and designer shaker of Arm & Hammer Baking Soda along with how-to’s to recreate spa treatments at home; an aromatherapy candle, organic tea bags and a tea cup to create a spa experience; a nail kit, nail polish, lavender oil for a manicure/pedicure; and a terrycloth hair wrap and organic wash cloth for a facial.
Having started a new job directly after the holidays has taken a bit of a stressful toll on me. I was up for a day of pampering and loved the fact that (1) I did not have to go outside into the cold and (2) it was at a very affordable price not only because of the lovely box of goodies but because the needed items were in reach. I invited a friend over and we took a day of enjoying each others company and pampering. A few of the spa recipes that we tried included
Mix 3 parts Arm & Hammer Baking Soda with 1 part water. Cleanse skin as usual, followed by the gentle scrub. (Be careful to avoid eye area). Rinse with warm water. Leaves skin feeling nourished and refreshed.
Exfoliating PedicureBlend 2 tablespoons of Arm & Hammer Baking Soda in a basin of warm water. After a nice soak, make a scrub using 3 parts Arm & Hammer Baking Soda and 1 part water. Follow with an application of a rich moisturizer and a warm towel foot wrap. Let sit for 5 - 10 minutes. Feet will feel smooth and clean.
Brightening ManicureDip brush into Arm & Hammer Baking Soda and scrub nails and cuticles. Make a paste of 3 parts Arm & Hammer Baking Soda to 1 part water. Rub in a gentle, circular motion over hands and fingers to exfoliate and smooth. Rinse clean with warm water and apply polish as usual.
I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Arm & Hammer and received a beauty basket to thank me for taking the time to participate. I thank them for the product that was sent for me to review. I have shared my candid personal thoughts and opinions in this post They are my opinions and others may or may not agree with them
