bath salt bombs flowers cherries on

While the most popular gifts are jewelry, flowers and candy, relaxing bath and body products make great gift ideas for all women. What’s not to love? From spa accessories that help her enjoy a nice long bath to skin lightening creams that help her complexion glow, she’ll be reminded to treat herself.

Check out these bath, body and beauty treatments for a truly indulgent Valentine’s Day that she will never forget!

Bath Bombs

Of course, bath bombs are a must-have for the most relaxing bath experiences. Some bath bombs fizz and others release color and sparkles into the bath. Looking for something truly unique? Some bath bombs even release petals into the water.

You can find almost any type of bomb you want and, yes, you also can make your own bombs! If you really love to DIY or need a gift idea that may be easy to include the kids, try this bath bomb recipe by Wellness Mama.

Scented Lotions or Soaps

The craze for scented lotions and shower gels has never really subsided. Everyone has their own signature scent, though, and this can make buying the right product a bit tricky if the mom in your life already has her go-tos.

If you share a bathroom, you probably know the scents she loves. Another way to get out of the scent conundrum is to purchase a bath set that includes multiple fragrances. She might not like every product, but the fun is trying out different fragrances.

Shaving Sets

Shaving sets make a practical but still pampering gift. Sets usually include a high-end razor and luxurious creams as well as moisturizing after-shave products. You also can create your own shave set made up of her favorite products; buy a large gift basket and fill it with bath and shaving products as well as cozy slippers and/or a monogrammed bath robe.

Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy may be just what the busy mom in your life needs to help relax after a long day, or get her second wind for an afternoon between meetings and soccer games. Create an apothecary gift basket filled with a selection of bath oils. Don’t worry about favorite scents for this gift; you should include a variety of oils that offer many benefits. Citrus is invigorating, lavender is calming, and lemongrass oil also may uplift.

Cosmetics & Beauty Products

For women who love cosmetics and beauty products, you may choose gifts that help her complexion sparkle! Create a cosmetic themed gift basket featuring unicorn (or rainbow) highlighters, contouring cosmetics and beauty products that help lighten sun spots and brighten the complexion and, of course, mix in favorite lipsticks, shadows and more! If you’re unsure which shades or hues to select, choose products that are universally flattering. Think tinted lip balms that help soothe dry lips, neutral palettes and brightening serums that work for all complexions.

Valentine’s Day will be here soon, so it’s time to start planning! Flowers and chocolates are  must-have gifts (as is the perfect Valentine), but this is the ultimate holiday for pampering products for moms who need more than romance. Bath bombs, scented lotions, essential oils and beauty products all make luxe gifts that will help her unwind, relax and feel appreciated!

Written by Dr. Steven Rosen
Many great inventions and discoveries in the world were unintentional or just plain accidents. The story you are about to read concerning a breakthrough in the cosmetics field relates another great accidental discovery. In 1985, in an office in South Florida, Dr. Steven Rosen, a dentist at that time was working on a patient. The patient was a private investigator. Medication was given to the patient to alleviate the pain associated with his treatment. Two days later, the patient noticed a dramatic improvement not only in the pain level, but in his skin as well. His face, which was full of razor bumps, had cleared up! The man couldn't wait to tell the dentist what had happened. He called the dentist on the phone. He asked the dentist what he was doing to him. The dentist was worried and asked what he was talking about. He told the dentist that something the dentist was doing was clearing up his razor bumps. He told the dentist that since he started shaving 15 years earlier, he had tried everything available for razor bumps and nothing had worked until now. The investigator began to tell the dentist how important this discovery was. He mentioned that the dozens of products already on the market did not come close to producing the dramatic results he had achieved. He also said that this was a big problem in the military where a clean shave was required or you would have to get a shaving clearance from the dermatologist. Lawsuits had been filed in industry by workers who were fired because they were unable to get a clean shave for example where gas mask use was required Police must have clean shaves and so on. The dentist realized the importance of this discovery and determined which ingredient in the medication was improving the skin. Realizing that the ingredient could not be taken internally for long periods of time, the two men experimented with the formula in an attempt to apply it directly to the skin. It worked. It then took nine long years work to create a workable product and learn how to reach the market. . The dentist had a great discovery. Other uses for the formula arose in the same "chance" way that the formula was discovered. Women who bought the product for their husbands or boyfriends started trying it on ingrown hair problem they had from shaving, waxing, and having electrolysis on their legs, bikini lines, and underarms. Not only did they report to the dentist that the ingrown hair problems had cleared, but that the formula worked as an excellent underarm deodorant. And the rest is history……… Thank you for letting us tell our story. We hope you enjoyed it.
