Ay que RICA!!

A couple weeks back a fabulous reader reached out to me and asked me about the lotions I am using…and as a pregnant woman, I can tell you that lotions essentially become your bathwater…meaning you will cover your whole body in it.  Luckily for me, my “bathwater” is made of from all natural ingredients and luxurious herbs thanks to the fabulous company that is Rica Body. And these products are not just amazing for preggos like me, but for anyone that loves a little pampering…and honestly, isn’t that everyone ;)

IMG_4676First up is the Bathtub Tea with Indian Gingermint. I had never heard/seen of this before but let me tell you…it’s FABULOUS!! It comes with its very own muslin bag which you fill with the delicious (and skin-softening) herbs of sage, jasmine, calendula and lavender…then you simply drop the bag into your warm bath and soak away your stresses. Not only do you feel better afterwards but your skin will feel so soft and you’ll smell absolutely lovely.
Next up are the Siesta Salts. My husband has used these before and loved what they did for his sore back after an excruciating day of golf (yeah…rough life, right?). It’s the timeless cure of Epson salt as well as Caribbean harvested sea salt and the mineral rich Dead Sea salt. The mixture of these things will allow impurities to be extracted, your muscles to be soothed and stiffness to be reduced…so if you’re an active person or just have some achy muscles, this is a must-use for you.
Okay, now onto the über luxurious Aloe Butter Sugar Polish. I absolutely LOVE this product. It has healing sugar cane crystals mixed with cranberry and raspberry seeds for exfoliation. It gives your skin have the most beautiful glow. I love, love, love this polish.
And lastly is that “bathwater” I was talking about in the intro…I literally cover my whole body with this butter. The ingredients speak for themselves: Shea butter, Jojoba oil, Avocado Oil, Kukui nut oil, Coconut oil, Passionfruit oil, Vitamin E, essential oils of lemon and sweet orange…so yeah, this all natural product is beyond crazy good for you. I love that it nourishes my skin as it goes through the normal pregnancy changes while also providing me with peace of mind that I am not putting anything on my body that isn’t natural. I’m kind of crazy about organic/natural products…my friends will vouch for that ;)
So…if you’re in the market for something new, naturally made and with fantastic benefits for your body and mind…definitely check out Rica body. These products are sold in many small boutiques nationwide. Click here to find a store near you.
