Rarely do I have time just for me. I don’t even have time to go to the bathroom without a knock on the door or a child barging in uninvited. The kids always seem to come first and sometimes I forget that I need me time.  The other day while my husband was driving and I was in the passenger seat I had a moment to look at myself. I noticed my hands were dry and my skin was scaly. I didn’t have that pretty winter glow I like to have. It was at that moment I realized I needed to indulge myself with a little personal pampering time with NIVEA #NIVEAmoments. I headed to Sam’s Club for some NIVEA lotion. I needed some other things too, plus, the kids seem to really enjoy Sam’s Club, so off we went.

The NIVEA Essentially Enriched Twin Pack of 16.9 oz bottles were only $8.98. This is why I’m a Sam’s Club member, to save money. Personal pampering time is definitely important to me but it must be done on a budget.

The very first thing I do when I have manage to sneek off and grab some time for myself is to give myself a facial. I found an anti-stress dead sea minerals masque buried deep in my bathroom drawer.It’s amazing how refreshed my skin feels after giving myself a facial. Next time I won’t wait so long in between facials. I deserve a facial at least once a week.

After my facial I soaked in the tub for a bit. I love taking a bath and having my iPod turned on at the same time. Lately I’ve listened to a lot of Mumford and Sons, their music so relaxing. I found some bath salts under my bathroom sink and indulged myself in the relaxing aroma of eucalyptus. While soaking in the tub I still had a child wonder in and out to ask me if I could help them with a thing or two. A mother’s work is very done. I think when kids see the bathroom door shut they think it’s an invitation to come on in. Why is that?

I ended my afternoon of pampering with NIVEA lotion. Since I don’t have a personal masseuse hidden away in my closet I rubbed my own feet, feels just as good. I don’t know why I waited so long to spend sometime of myself and give myself some personal pampering time. Next time I won’t wait so long.

  1. I love that you shared your green face pics! I’t been a while since I’ve used a mask. I am definitely in need of some pampering like this. Nivea lotion is fantastic!

  2. Thanks for the reminder to take time for myself with a facial or relaxing bath.
    I don’t do it nearly enough. I love Nivea and will check out its Pinterest board for more ideas!

  3. You’re so cute in the face mask, love it 🙂
    I actually took a “spa day” here at home not long ago, and Abby saw me with my face mask on. She said, “I wanna play monsters too mommy. Pleeeaaase?” Lol. So I had to put some on her, and she stood on a stool growling and roaring into the mirror, 🙂

  4. I’m a lotion addict. It’s in my purse, desk, every drawer/room in the house! That is a great price for two bottles too!

  5. I was just thinking of doing masques tonight with my 5 year old. Daddy is out of town and we are having girl’s night. I am heading to Target today. I will have to check out this product! Thanks for sharing. (And yes, I do love Pinterest too!)
