Aloha: A Small Escape with NIVEA Touch of Frangipani

All I could think this morning, as I rode the elevator to the office, was "lord, I need a vacation." I mean, it's midsummer and I barely have a tan - it's an embarrassment. Thankfully, a mini getaway is less than a month away - Mexico, o! - so to tide me over in the meantime, I'm slowing down life a bit, including my typical rushed shower routine  - stopping to smell the proverbial roses, if you will. In this case, though, it's the scent of Hawaiian Frangipani flower, a key ingredient in NIVEA's new Touch of Frangipani Hydrating Shower Gel.

(Don't mind if I do!)

Now tropical flowers are really among my greatest loves, and Frangipani is no exception. The exotic, heady aroma is intoxicatingly feminine, and when combined with the NIVEA Shower Gel formula, you've got an unbeatable combination of skin softness and skin scent. I committed to Touch of Frangipani for a full two weeks - scary for a commitment-phobe like me - and I'm in love! I may not be the Maldives...but I'm in love.
