When Christine, the green goddess from Eco-Emi, tells me I need to try something. I listen. She sent me this bottle of Seaweed Bath Company’s Wildly Natural Soothing Eucalyptus & Peppermint Body Wash and I looked forward to trying it in my nightly bath. Boy, am I glad I got to try it!

In-My-Tub-Tuesday: Avon Skin So Soft Original Bath Oil – a handheld walk down Memory Lane

Many of the products that I love are new ones that I’ve found in my solitary quest for cosmetic confections.

But then there are those products that take me back to childhood. Products that I wouldn’t have found without my Mother or Nanny’s love of them.

White Shoulders perfume always makes me think of my beloved grandmother, Nanny.

Estee Lauder perfume always makes me think of my mom in the 1980s.

And then there is Avon.

Avon and Mary Kay are biiiiiiiig where I come from.

Everyone knows – or is related to someone – who sells it and, a few times a year, Avon will show up on your doorstep.
Yet another reason why I now love monthly beauty boxes as much as I do.

It reminds me of those magical moments in childhood when those lovely ladies in my life, whom I looked up to so, would open the door and find a bag of little luxuries waiting for them.

So when I was relaxing in my nightly bath last night, my mind wandered to mothers, grandmothers and aunts, how much they teach us and how much we inherit from them in terms of our beauty beliefs, routines and rituals.

As I was doing so, I glanced at the right corner of my bathtub and saw my Avon Skin So Soft that I took from my mom’s beauty closet last time I was home over Christmas.

It made me smile. And not just because it leaves my super dry skin-so-soft as it swears! Over the years, I have used it in my bath for relaxing (as it was intended), as a moisturizing sheen for my parched legs or as a luxurious bronzing potion when I mix a drop or two of the oil with a gel/liquid bronzer.

It does indeed leave my skin-so-soft and my body relaxed but it also takes my heart on a walk down Memory Lane as it holds my hand. And that’s why I love it even more.

I remember my hardworking accounting professor/CPA mom buying it from her client, Gloria, every year. And I remember thinking it must be like a grown-up lady’s version of Girl Scout cookies! (That just made me laugh “saying it out loud”!!)

I think you’ll notice that I’m thinking about the ladies in my life A LOT this month what with Mother’s Day only 13 days away (May 13th for those of you wondering).

I’m looking forward to a May filled with motherly love and, really, appreciation for all women this month. I hope you’ll hold my hand as we take this walk together.

Hope you have a very merry May!
