I returned from my vacation to find this amazing care package of products to try from Bath Body Candle Moments scentsthemoment.com/. These are products that the owner, Kristen (who I know in real life and is an amazing person), has found other cancer survivors like using and she curated this package for me to try and share my opinion via my blog. I did not purchase these products (yet) but I will be buying them after using them all up.
The products are full stop amazing. I have been trying to be more conscious of what I eat and use in and around my body. I am eating clean and was trying to use more "natural" products but the most natural I had for my skin was Ivory or Dove soap and I was not a true fan. I felt the ingredient list still had stuff on it I did not understand. I know that just because I do not understand an ingredient does not mean that it is intrinsically bad for me BUT I am wary of using non-organic and other chemical based stuff that I used to think was frou-frou and unnecessary worries. Then I got breast cancer and question everything and changed everything (see--> taking-back-control.html).
So these products with their simple to read ingredient list are perfect for this new version of me. Also, they smell and work wonderfully. Not trying to be gross here but after my mastectomy and lymph node extraction (which I spoke about here about-that-surgerywhat-a-mastectomy-is-like.html) I could NOT use deodorant for the first few weeks and also during radiation but even when I could use deodorant, it was not working. I do not know what changed post surgery but all of a sudden my right armpit could kill you.
The It's the Pits product here is the only stuff that works on my disgusting right armpit AND it is vegan, made from ingredients I can read and understand and lasts a long time. I have been using it for the past two weeks and change and have barely made a dent in the container. This product lasts a long time.
The Butter Me Up cream is smooth and wonderful on my right arm - which post lymph node extraction needs to be moisturized and to avoid all cuts and burns as my lymphatic system is not 100% after my 25 lymph node removal. The natural bug spray works great and is much much better than any chemical based formula. I mean, do I even need to talk about what is in normal bug sprays? It is something that I have been afraid to apply to my skin but since my blood is something all the bugs love, I needed something to help shield my skin.
The soap is so refreshing - it zaps me awake when I use it and maintains the fresh smell throughout the day. It includes lavender which is something that is calming to both the smell and the skin.
I will be a customer of these products and look forward to having them help me repair and recover from my plot twist of breast cancer.
