Earlier this week I was feeling blue and tried a bunch of different things to pull myself out of my funk.
I tried exercising more often than usual (endorphins, heed my call!) and even dug out my old aromatherapy candles, LOL!
They definitely helped, but what really cheered me up were these scented Gloomaway body products from the Blue Skies Ahead holiday gift set by Origins ($29.50).
Like the other products in the Gloomaway line, they smell like yummy grapefruit, and the company claims the scent creates a sense of “optimism and contentment.”
Sign me up.
I think the products smell more like a combination of grapefruit and sweet orange rinds than straight grapefruit alone, but more importantly the scent isn’t artificial or sugary at all. Oh, and it’s subtle — not overly citrus-y like Pledge cleaner, yuck!
The Blue Skies Ahead set comes with a nice selection of products, making it a good way to try out a few different products from the popular line…
- Body-Buffing Cleanser. Gently scrubbing with this in the shower softens rough skin patches but doesn’t rub my skin raw. It lathers up into a rich foam and, like the other products in the line, smells divine. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A
- Body Wash and Bubble Bath. This gel creates so many big, frothy bubbles… It’s like a bipedal bubble bath!Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A+
- Body Souffle. The souffle provides medium-weight daytime moisturization for parched skin. I’ve liked using it on my hands and arms throughout the day because it absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave an oily film. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: B
The set comes packaged in a cute green and white cylinder gift box. If you know someone who could use a little cheering up this holiday season, Blue Skies Ahead may be able to help.
