Now Is The Perfect Time To Focus On Self Care #MBPSpring20

Thanks to The Giving Wick, Noctua Soap Co, Body + Soul and Mad Viking Beard Co for providing me with product to review. All thoughts shared are my own.

With all of the changes that have taken place recently that have been out of my control, I decided it was time to focus on something that has been put on the back burner that is within my control: self care.


There is a big elephant in the room as of late and while I know this current crisis is on everyone's minds, I am hoping today we can just take a few minutes to refocus and hopefully kick stress to the curb while we dive into some of my new favorite things!

My hubby has told me in the past that he doesn't really care what shampoo or soap I get for him but that he loves when they smell "like a man". I have to admit, I do too. There is just something about a freshly showered man and in my quest to find the perfect guy shower products, I found Mad Viking Beard Company and I may never look back. This company proudly boasts being a little gritty and strives to uphold their strong Norse Viking roots!




Right off the bat, how can you deny the striking packaging of these products? Their designer is pretty incredible. I really wanted to try a variety of the scents as there are many unique options to pick from. What I love about the Mad Viking website is the detailed description of the scents. When I was browsing the site, I found it super easy to choose scents based on the way they were described. Might I suggest Ravn Rom and Orange Bergamot for your guy? These are my favorites with the subtle but bright, natural fragrance that is both manly and earthy. You can snag the shampoo my hubby has been using for a super reasonable $13.

From tattoo balm to beard oil, Mad Viking has everything the strong, modern man or woman may need to stay clean and sharp. While my man doesn't have a beard, he does have thick hair and we have been pretty darn impressed with the shampoo. 

If you're wanting to change gears a little and maybe you are someone who enjoys a luxurious bath as much as I do, you absolutely must discover Body + Soul and transform your bathing experience. They are built upon the premise that nature provides the most nourishing ingredients to restore and heal our bodies. The other night, I drew a nice hot bath and dropped in a lemongrass bergomot bath tea bag. Immediately, I was whisked away to a spa in my mind and truly had the most amazing bath!



The Body + Soul Miracle Spa Gift Set is a great way to experience a variety of products offered. I've been rubbing the Miracle Sports Cream on my problem shoulder every night. This beautiful gift box is currently on sale for $65. Grab it for yourself or even for mom this coming Mother's Day. Body + Soul has some amazing products to pick from to help turn a boring bath into a rejuvenating experience. 

A bath doesn't seem complete to me without lighting a candle and creating an ambiance for relaxation! With everything that has been going on in the world lately, you would be amazed at how healing a hot bath can be when you use certain products and take the time to make it extra special.




I relaxed in my bath with these amazing candles flickering in the dimly lit bathroom, providing a light, crackling flicker that put all of my senses at ease. The Giving Wick's, "It's Raining Outside" coconut wax candle is such a light and fresh scent. It made me feel as though I had the windows open during an evening rain. The Giving Wick gives 15% of proceeds to charities that are near and dear to their hearts and I think this is something extra special about this company. You can get this beautiful candle for $20 in a variety of scents like french nut coffee, lily of the valley, sea breeze and so many more. 


I have some wax burners throughout my home and was very excited to try the "sea breeze" scent from The Giving Wick. This fragrance is absolutely amazing! If you're like me and enjoy walking into a room and thinking, "ahhh", you will want to snag this scent for your home. These products are such beautiful gift ideas but also a great way to treat yourself to your evening of self care.

I know soap is a hot commodity right now so I'm excited to share about Noctua Soap Co because these bars are a great size and truly last such a long time. I mention this point because we all need products that will last during these uncertain times. 


I've been using the Alpine Lavender scented bar of soap in my baths and between my bath tea bags, candles burning and this bar of soap, I am transported to complete sensory heaven. 

Infused with a delicate and extraordinary species of lavender. Alpine Lavender™ essential oil is distilled from lavender cultivated at high elevations which preserves a wider range of aromatic and therapeutic properties. While Alpine Lavender™ is scarce within the industry, we have a reputable and sustainable supply for our small batch products. Luxurious oils combined with the lavender hydrates and smooths skin. Each bar of soap is hand crafted and goes through 6-week cure process.

Noctua Soap Co takes care to remember that quality is in the details and you can tell when you are using this bar of soap! You may also want to check out their unique line of all natural night creams after your skin is all clean. 



It's easy to let yourself come in last place when you have a family and a home to take care of. I feel like we are sometimes just prone to putting ourselves on the back burner to ensure everyone we care about is well cared for and loved. While this is important and shows how much love we have in our hearts, I also want to encourage you to take an evening off and pamper yourself. It can be a simple bath. Light a candle, listen to your favorite playlist and let your senses do what they do best. I hope you will enjoy some of these amazing products that I've discovered recently and take a moment to let the worries of the world fade away.

Want It? Get It!
