10. Ride your bike (remember how fun that was?!)

11. Take your nephew/niece to the park and to the pool.

12. Take your nephew/niece to the zoo (wear a tank top for an even tan and no makeup so that you can run after the little ones without makeup dripping down your face)

LUSH Therapy Massage Bar

I am on a lush kick right now and I was sold on Lush’s Therapy Massage Bar. Lush’s massage bars are my new favorite things! They are a solid but they melt quickly into the skin. Therapy Bar contains fair trade cocoa butter and shea butter for soft smooth skin. The smell is very strong and not necessarily the best. The cocoa butter gives off a chocolate smell and the lavender/neroli oil give off an orange scent so the bar smells like chocolately oranges. A lot of people don’t like the smell but I like it. I purchased Therapy bar because the Lush lady told me that the neroli oil in the bar brightens skin and fades stretch marks. The neroli oil can leave your skin a tiny bit greasy but I use dusting powder to keep dry or I just use it at night so I can wake up to touchable skin! I’ve been using this bar everyday for about three weeks and yes my stretch marks have faded but they haven’t completely disappeared. The bar disappeared though! The bar didn’t last as long as I hoped and for $10 a bar I don’t think I will be purchasing this one again.

Verdict: Skip Over
