Looking Beautiful all Summer Long with Dove VisibleCare Toning Crème Body Wash


How’s your summer so far? I hope you’re enjoying yourself and having a blast with your family and friends. It’s only the beginning of the summer and my family schedule is all booked up and filled with fun activities. In between summer classes that my kids are having, they enjoy hanging out at the beach the most. Lately, they’re really into building sand castles. Well, I don’t have an “end product” to show you because as soon as my kids were done building it, they step on it right the way. I guess the joy is really in the process (of stepping onto it), not the end result.


Of course, we have tons of BBQ parties and gatherings. Last weekend, we had a party and we were (I meant, I was) cooking up a storm. I just realized that grilled romaine lettuces are so delicious and easy to make. If you haven’t tried that, you should.


On some days, we just stayed in, did driveway drawings; Biked around the neighborhood; Played bubble gun at the back yard; Or took out the collapsible play house and fill it with plastic balls.  My kids found that very entertaining. Yup, that’s really fun for toddlers.

Drive way drawing

Very often, this is the sight (see picture below) I’m greeted with after a long day. Don’t get me wrong, it’s all fun time that I had with the kids. But I do long for a relaxing spa treatment with my girlfriends every once in a while. Imagine spending a relaxing day at the spa; enjoy a body wrap or a body salt scrub, ended with a spa bath or a soak in the Jacuzzi tub; then catch up with my girlfriends and talk about anything and everything (=gossip). That would make me feel all brand new and rejuvenated. But before I can squeeze out a day to do all that, I have a better and more economical solution in between spa days.

BlogHer and Dove provided me with a free bottle of Dove VisibleCare Toning Crème Body Wash to try. I’ve been using it for more than a week now. I love the rich, pearlescent crème format with luxurious lather the most. It has a delicate wood fragrance along with robust citrus note of mandarin. The best part is that it leaves my skin nice and soft after each use. This body wash contains Vitamin E and helps my skin looks more beautiful, promotes skin’s elasticity and strength. I’m so glad it does what it says. So, my girlfriends, before I can meet you up for a spa treatment, go get yourself a bottle. You’ll be glad you did.

  1. Sounds like you are having an awesome summer! And yes, I love grilled romaine lettuce too!! I usually make light Japanese dressing and eat it, but if you have some favorite way please do share! :-) I use Dove products for body wash sometimes - forgot the name but it's great! And what makes me feel beautiful? Hmmm when I get 10 hour sleep? Haha just kidding. Definitely after a day spa. Hehee :D

    1. Hehe...the grilled romaine lettuces are the best. I usually drizzle them with olive oil, sprinkle with kosher salt and pepper before grilling. That's it. I don't even need any dressing on them. :) But a Japanese dressing sounds fantastic. I gotta try that next time. I wish I get 10 hr sleep too, hahahaha...but I guess that's not happening to Moms with young kids like us. :P Thanks for stopping by, Nami.

  2. I think what makes me feel beautiful has gotten more simplified over the years. Used to be a fancy dress or perfect makeup or just having my hair done. Now? It's a long, restful good night's sleep. I think it's so rare in these hectic days that we get to wake up without an alarm clock. But I cherish those times that I can.
