Johnson’s Challenge: Beautifying the…dashboard?

Aaaaand, we’re moving on with the Johnson’s Beauty Challenge! I’ve showed you the benefits of applying baby powder in the stinky sneakers and now it’s time to take it to the car. Some of us spend many hours a week in our cars. You know…sitting in traffic, trying to beat rush hour (#FAIL) and going to and from work almost every day. Mama Clumps gave me the idea of slathering baby oil gel all over my dashboard to give it some extra bling.

Seriously! Watch this…

Johnson’s Challenge: Baby Powder in my shoes!

There is a reason why my running shoes are making an appearance on Clumps. Just give me a second to explain. Okay, so remember I was tellin’ y’all that I was participating in the Johnson’s Challenge? Wellll…I’ve been coming up with alternative ways (in addition to stealing some of the great ones in the comments ;)) to use the baby powder, lotion, gel and and body wash.

And how to my stinky shoes come in to play? Hit the jump to see!

Strawberry Ice Cream bath? Thanks Mrs. Whippy!

Darlings…have you found the time to take a bath yet? While I’ve been too lazy (isn’t that funny? Too lazy to relax… :D) to take one EVERY single day, I still manage to get in at least 3 bubble bath a week. I recently took one and used the Mrs. Whippy bath bomb from LUSH.

Ain’t she purty? LUSH says that this bomb smells like Strawberry Ice Cream and I couldn’t agree more. She’s got soya milk powder infused in her so when she fizzes out, she leaves your bath water milky. You know what though? I didn’t find her to be the softest bath bomb that I’ve experienced. In fact, she was just okay. It was her scent and slow fizzing fireworks that stole the show for me.

Mrs. Whippy, your intentions were good, ma’am. And you smell divine. But a sista with skin as dry as mine needs more softening action. Love you anyway. Mrs. Whippy is only $4.95 at LUSH retail stores and LUSH.com. I purchased this one a few months ago but I love how my LUSH bath bombs always smell so pretty until I use them.

Bali Intimates rocks + giveaway

I believe in shapewear. And nobody (haha, literally) does it like Bali. I had the pleasure of meeting them at the Blogalicous Conference last Fall. I also met the fabulous June Ambrose who represented them. After getting fitted, I had the opportunity to test drive a pair of their firm control leggings.

Hit the jump to see how successful or unsuccessful I was in that department.

LUSH’s Fizzy O’Therapy bath bomb

LUSH dominated most of the gifts that I gave away this Christmas. You’re familiar with LUSH, aren’t you? I’ve known about them for years now and I don’t know what happened but a LUSH bug must have bit me because now I’m obsessed. I want LUSH everything. But it’s better to give than to receive, right? Hence why I hooked up Mama Clumps with the Fizzy O’Therapy bath balm. I wrapped it up all pretty and put it in her stocking.

Dry Skin Confessions

Oh gee, how do I start this off? I guess I should just come out with it.

I have dry skin. And I’ve always had dry skin. It’s not something I’m proud about either. It’s embarrassing. You can’t exactly go around scratching your lower back with intense frustration in public without people giving you the side-eye. But to my rescue, I present two drugstore (aka affordable) brands that have been coming to my rescue. First up…

Aren’t they sexy?

Canus Goat’s Milk Soap rocks!

I’ve been meaning to share with y’all the soap that has replaced every single one of my body washes. It takes something special to make this body wash-obsessed girl go from having several bottles in the shower to eliminating them all to sticking with just one lowly bar of soap.

Goat’s milk soap is mutha cluckin’ jump off!
