Am I in a Spa in Thailand or My Shower? Day 3 of My Favorite Things: Vitabath

Day 3 of My Favorite Things: Vitabath


@Vitabath Facebook

I was in the cosmetic industry for a long time. During that time I was lucky enough to get many bags of swag. With that said – I have tried most products on the market today – whether mass (drugstore) or prestige (department store brands). So it takes a lot to impress me with a new fragrance, beauty, bath or cosmetic product.

In November I was lucky enough to attend the Momtrends holiday event where I was introduced to the brand Vitabath and its new product – Vitabath Heavenly Cocunut Crème, 12 OunceCupcake Couture™ Heavenly Coconut Creme™ with Coconut Oil Body Wash. At first I thought it was just another body wash in a gift bag, but then I started using it and I immediately saw that this product was different. I quickly became a fan.

Maybe it’s the packaging (and you know I am a packaging junkie) – the beige bottle and yellow vines remind me of a fantastic trip to Thailand. Maybe it’s the fun, curly font used– the same one that my eye is always drawn to when I’m ordering stationary. Maybe it’s the French words – reminding me of a more simple time in my life when I was in Paris. It could even be the name – Heavenly Coconut Crème, or delicious scent, or the smooth texture. Or, quite simply, it could just be that I’m excited to be taking a shower!

Since having my two kids I haven’t gone to a spa. However, when I use my Vitabath Heavenly Cocunut Crème, 12 OunceCupcake Couture™ Heavenly Coconut Creme™ with Coconut Oil Body Wash and close my eyes, I can feel the robe and the terry cloth slippers. I can hear the soothing music and trickling fountain. Even the smallest amount on my shower pouf gives me enough for luxurious full body lather to take me away.


In addition to how the product makes me feel it is quite simply a good product to use. What you will find in the 12 oz $7.95 bottle is an Antioxidant rich super fruit blend of Acai, Goji, Coffee, Noni, Pomegranate, Green Tea & Mangosteen. Plus the skin conditioning nutrients Vitamin A, B3, C, E and Pro-Vitamin B5 enrich the formula. What you won’t find are any Sulfates, Parabens, Petro-Chemicals, Triclosan, propylene glycol, DEA, TEA, mineral oils or silicone.

Another thing I like about this product is it says it’s for adult use only. I like that because I know not to use it on my kids and I like it because that means It’s just mine and I can’t use it on my kids! More for me – Yay!

Thank you Vitabath for introducing me to a luxurious product. You have become one of my favorite things!

  1. This is not beauty related but any time I smell the whiff of a cigar I am reminded of sitting in the backseat of my grandpa’s car. It is strange because although it is not a yummy delicious smell it pulls warm memories up from my heart. 🙂

  2. My most powerful memory of a smell is play doh!! It brings me back to my childhood. I used to LOVE playing with Play Doh…but more than anything oh did I LOVE smelling it! What makes this experience even better, is now my 2 year olf loves playing with play doh. And yesterday as we were playing she took one of the full containers and took a big huge inhale smell….and said…”mommy I LOVE how this smells” Like mother like daughter.

  3. When I smell lemon juice in a bottle I am instantly transported to my grandmother martha’s apartment where she used to make me lemonade from lemon juice, sugar and water. i first became aware of this memory as an older teenager (decades ago now) when as a counselor at a summer camp a girl shoved a bottle in my face and said “hey smell this1”.
    p.s. i’m your aunt so i don’t think it would be fair to win this. but wanted to share.
