Feel Fabulously Fresh: Freshen-Up Tips with Summer's Eve: Plus a Giveaway!!!

 Sponsored Post

There are certain times throughout the day that I love to freshen up a bit. Busy day-to-day schedules packed with swimming lessons, play dates, errands, house cleaning, grocery shopping, etc. often leave me feeling like I need to take an extra shower! Not to mention the heat and humidity of the Summer in Georgia! When I have the time, I do love an extra "rinse off" shower. However, it is hard to squeeze in a shower (let alone an extra shower) when you are taking care of a toddler. Sometimes you just need to get creative! Personally, I hate that "icky" feeling that you get when you feel like you need a shower...yet, you don't have the time to take one. So, what is a girl to do? 
 
Feel Fresh Throughout the Day: Ideas and Tips! 
Let's talk about ideas for freshening up throughout the day! I have discovered a few tips and tricks over the years. There are certainly ways that you can freshen up quickly: either with a quickie wash-up or without!
  • Body Splash: When in need of some minor freshening, body mist is the perfect solution! While perfume is too heavy to reapply throughout the day, body splash is light enough to mist on whenever you need it! I always keep a small bottle of body splash in my handbag. It is super easy to spritz on body splash while on the go.
  • Wipes and Cleansing Cloths: Sometimes a quick misting of body splash just doesn't cut it: you need real cleansing yet you can't actually shower or wash up at a sink. There are certainly times when you need cleansing during the day but can't literally wash up with water. Cleansing wipes are the perfect solution! I like carrying a variety of individually packaged wipes with me: anti-bacterial hand wipes (for before and after eating), baby wipes (for my toddler), and Summer's Eve personal (for gentle cleansing of your personal areas).
  • Sink Wash-Up: When I need some targeted freshening up after working out, swimming, or spending the day outdoors in the heat, a sink wash-up is exactly what I need! A full shower is often too time consuming for mid-day (especially if you are only looking to cleanse some "key areas"). So, a quick washing of underarms and/or your personal areas might be all you need! Since I don't want to use the anti-bacterial hand soap that is typically at the sink, I often reach for a gentle soap or my Summer's Eve Cleansing Wash for this task.
  • The Quickie Shower: There are certainly times when you need a super quick full-body cleansing. I have mastered the art of jumping into the shower for less than 5 minutes. I just throw my hair into a pony tail and don a shower cap. Then I jump in the shower for just long enough to cleanse my body. I pay careful attention to not get my face wet (who has time to redo their makeup?). I just wet my body and give it a once-over with body wash or gentle soap. The only downside to the quickie shower is that you also have the additional step of moisturizing your whole body afterwards. So, it is certainly not as quick as the steps mentioned above.
More about Summer's Eve Island Splash:
I got to test out two products from Summer's Eve in their most popular "Island Splash" scent. Both of these items were great additions to my daily "freshen up" routine! I have sensitive skin all over my body, and I always have to be very particular with my choices for bar soap and body wash. I need products that cleanse gently, yet are also effective enough to eliminate odor causing bacteria. Summer's Eve accomplishes complete cleansing that is also very gentle! This is exactly what you need when washing those delicate areas!!!
 
Island Splash Cleansing Wash:
This is a pH balanced gentle cleansing wash specifically formulated for cleansing your personal areas. It is gentle yet it also eliminates odor-causing bacteria. There is no question that this leaves me feeling fresh and clean in my delicate areas. Plus, it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. I like the fact that it is gynecologist-approved for use in this area. I keep this right in my shower to use every day! Summer's Eve Cleansing Washes are available in 5 scents and most come in both 9 and 15 oz. sizes.
 
Island Splash Cleansing Cloths:
Cleansing Cloths are the perfect solution for on-the go freshening! Unlike other cleansing wipes, these from Summer's Eve are alcohol-free and are gentle enough for your most sensitive personal areas. Honestly, I wouldn't trust any other cleansing wipe for my personal area cleansing. There were specifically made for that purpose! I like to keep the individually wrapped cleansing cloths with me at all times (right in my purse, car, and diaper bag). Summer's Eve Cleansing Wipes are currently available in 3 scents in the option of 16-count individually wrapped or (for some scents) 32-count soft pack.

I love the fresh Island Splash scent! It is so refreshing!!! I would love to explore the rest of the scents in the Summer's Eve line of products. :)

I make sure I pull my long hair back, change clothes, and take showers if necessary to stay feeling fresh and clean throughout the day. My freshen-up tips and tricks are to change clothes if needed. Sometimes that does the trick.

Andrea Darst said...

I use flushable wipes throughout the day (after going to the bathroom) to feel refreshed. These would be a better alternative, I think.

rachel said...

I try to avoid heavy hair creams and such -- those weigh me down. I like feeling light!

I make sure to shower everyday, do my hair, use moisturizer and of course deodorant. If I need to freshen up I’ll either splash my face with water or use a facial wipe.

I keep my hair short in the summer. It's nice to be able to take a quick shower, wet down my hair, and not worry about having to take a lot of time with it.
When a shower is out of the question wipes and deodorant are a good substitute.
