Nivea Tropical Escape - Giveaway

When NIVEA approached me about trying the NIVEA Escape Challenge, I thought what a great way to get ready for our upcoming trip to Maui!  Trying out NIVEA's new hydrating shower gel would not only prep my skin for a tropical vacation by hydrating it but it would allow my mind to escape to a tropical retreat in my own shower with the scent of the frangipani flowers.

Nivea sent me a kit containing the Touch of Frangipani Hydrating Shower Gel (featured in the July issue of Allure Magazine as an Editor's Favorites), a pair of Havaianas Flip Flops and a $50 1-800-FLOWERS Gift Card.  The goal was to see how our skin felt after using the hydrating shower gel after 10 days while creating our own little tropical escape.  They challenged us to slow down and enjoy our shower experience.  So many mornings I am rushing through the shower process so quickly that I'm not taking a second just to take a moment for myself. 

I have to say that after two weeks, my skin has felt softer and I have been more aware of slowing down just a little bit to take a little time for myself (which we all know that we all could use a little bit more me time for ourselves).  

Leave me a comment and let me know what your favorite way is to create your own "escape".
