It’s All Thing Summer with Puritans Pride Giveaway

I have been enjoying the summer so much.  The last two months have been busy with all kinds of different happenings …

The trip to Lake Tahoe
Summer Half Marathons
Paddle Boarding
Playing with the kids
Dinners with friends
Farmer’s Market
My Grandmother’s funeral
My 30 year class reunion {this weekend}
Adopting a new kitten {yeah that happened, more pets}

Keeping with the summer spirit and theme, I am so excited to be bringing you the last installment of the #Puritanspride #AllThingsSummer #Giveaway.  If you have been following, you would know that I have been co-hosting with my fellow blogger gal pals Deborah, Laura and Brie to bring you three months of some amazing products from Puritans Pride.  If you were not able to be a winner of any, make sure to head over to Puritans Pride and check out the site.  The assortment of products is pretty huge and they always have amazing deals and prices.

This month is #AllThingsSummer so let’s check it out …

Desert Essence Coconut Shine and Refine Hair Lotion

As always anything coconut is a winner with me, especially during summer.  I have been using this on my hair and our daughter’s hair all summer long.  We even take it with us to the pool and beach.  I love how smooth our hair is while out in the elements and how easy brushing is.  Just added to ends of the hair and go.  So great.  I sometimes just open the bottle so smell it, I swear I feel as if I am on some tropical island somewhere.

Alba Botanica Sunless Tanner

I am a huge fan of sunless tanners.  I do not go to tanning beds and I really have only sprayed tanned twice.  This particular sunless tanning cream applies great and does not have a “yucky” smell to it.  I noticed it dried fairly quickly and it keeps a nice sheen on my legs which I love {if I happen to actually have a dress on}.
Perfectly Pure {Purtian’s Line} Moroccan Argan Oil Body Wash

Enough said!  Trust me, if you don’t win this you need to purchase it.  Same with the Body Lotion

Dessert Essence Coconut Hand and Body Lotion
This particular lotion is a bit thick.  I actually prefer applying it right out of the bath or shower while my skin is still somewhat moist.  It seems to be easier to apply.  Once on though, it is a great summer lotion.

Perfectly Pure Shea Butter

Okay, this was different for me.  I am used to creamy Shea Butters.  Literally like butter.  This is a pure Shea Butter so it feels a bit lumpy with some granules.  I had to really work it to get it soft.   I am huge fan of Shea Butters and will keep this.  I am going to see if I can maybe warm it to soften it up a bit and mix it to a creamier state.

Baby Ganics Mineral Based Sunscreen

I don’t have little ones, but I do sunscreen my kids all the time {especially their faces}.  This organic brand is awesome and very safe to use.

Alba Botanica Hawaiian Sunscreen

I wish I had a photo of this to share, however we used it all so quickly that the empty tube got left in Lake Tahoe.  Bravo to Alba for this sunscreen.  Love it!

Puritan’s Pride Aloe Vera Moisturizing Lotion

The kids loved this on their shoulders and back after a day out in the sun.  Goes on so easy and smooth, while cooling at the same time.  It was not sticky like pure aloe gel can be sometimes.

  19. Kristen M says:

    The hair lotion sounds perfect for all the time I’ve been spending outdoors and in the water. I also wonder if it would work to keep my son’s thick wavy hair managed. He like to wear it longer but doesn’t take great care brushing it!
