NeutrogenaDo you have the winter blues?  Maybe you’re stressed from going back to work?  Or perhaps you just need some time away from the kids/family?  If so, soak your stress away with Neutrogena.

The folks at Neutrogena recently sent me their collection of Rainbath® Refreshing Shower and Bath Gels.  Available in Original, Pear & Green Tea and Grapefruit, the gels create a rich lather without leaving any heavy residue on your skin.

Fun Bath Facts

  • In Ancient Rome, citizens bathed daily at the Roman baths, which often included a soak in the caldarium (hot tub), some detoxing in the laconicum (sauna), finished with a refreshing swim in the frigidarium (cold pool)
  • Early plumbing systems for bathing go back as far as around 3300 BC with the discovery of copper water pipes beneath a palace in the Indus Valley Civilization of ancient India
  • Pedestal Tubs, unlike other clawfoot-style tubs, do not actually have claw feet. The tub rests on a pedestal in what most would term an art deco style. Evidence of pedestal tubs dates back to the Isle of Crete in 1000 BC
  • In the latter half of the 20th century, the once popular clawfoot tub morphed into a built-in tub with a small apron front
  • The Crane Company introduced colored bathroom fixtures to the US market in 1928
  • Up until the late 1940s, many Americans only bathed once a week for personal hygiene

I am married to my college sweetheart and have a beautiful daughter named Riley, who definitely keeps me on my toes! I am also involved in starting a small business which would both manufacture and sell an invention that I've patented, called Toothpaste 2 Go. I love interacting with my readers and hope to learn as much about you as you learn about me!
