Because moms work hard, it is nice to give them a treat on their special day. One thing many moms do not do for themselves very often is to really indulge in something decadent. Of course, decadent means different things to different people, so I suppose I should clarify. When I think of indulging for myself, it is usually with something delicious for my skin or to eat! Since I am working on losing weight, this Mother’s Day I decided I better indulge my penchant for skin care products instead of my go to chocolate cake. I want to introduce you to a company that has a line of products that are exactly what mom would love to receive on her special day. Caudalie is a company based in Bordeaux, France that was started by a husband and wife. From the vineyards on their family estate, they were inspired by the super healthy powers that the vine and grapes could offer our skin. They have worked with an experienced scientist who helped them create a line that has been sold in pharmacies across France and are now available in the states.

As busy as I am, it seems there are not enough hours in the day to get everything done. I am always running here or there, doing laundry, fixing dinner, working, and so on. I know you can relate right? When was the last time you actually took a nice, long bath or shower? Now let me ask you this. When was the last time you took one without someone pounding on the door asking a question? Exactly! So, in order to get our families to pamper mom on Mother’s Day, we need to suggest a few products of the pampering kind. Here are some deliciously decadent bath and body products you will love!
