Home Sweet Hogar - Vivemejor Lounge

A place to relax and just enjoy the company of others while still being able to hear yourself, this was the Hogar Vivemejor Lounge during Hispanicize 2012.  A place to learn, but also to just "be". Cozy, charming, acojedora- home.  In some ways it truly was like home. Except it was clean. And there was always someone cooking, or sharing.  JU SO FONII!!!  Ok si, you're correcto. It was nothing like BB's home, but it was calming and welcoming and I visited daily.  And I learned a lot.  Look at the schedule of events, the different types of showcasing and tell me if you wouldn't have been there daily too!

Yes, that's the actual scanned in picture of Babushka's schedule.  In particular, there was the info Dra. J. Lima-Maribona gave me; her recommendation on a skincare line for us beauties over 40 - Pond's Luminous Clean. The doctor was one of my favorite speakers- very straight forward but with a wicked humor; she's wonderful.  I enjoyed her presentation and answers so much that when given a chance to speak with a Unilever Spokesperson I chose her- even above the chefs. So you know she has to be good.  And so were the products they gave out to attendees (another reason I was there daily).  Heje Got to the point that the marvelous Edelman reps had a bag ready for BB each day.  Y to top it off?  BB won a gift basket!!  Oh yes I did-

Now isn't that purty? And I got the Luminous towels the Dra. recommended.

But what exactly did I score???

Nice score huh?  They've asked me if I'd like to give a review of the products- but of course!  Bueno, this will be a family affair because BB believes in sharing the wealth and gave products out to my daughters and daughter in law.  Except for the food.  The food was all Babushka's.

Starting from the top of the list, the Caress Body Wash.  Gave this to my youngest because the vanilla scent always makes me hungry, and BB needs no help in that department.  As it is, every time My Little One goes by I want a cookie.  She loves it- the body wash and the torture it brings me. 

My eldest received the Clear Scalp & Hair Beauty Therapy Total Care Shampoo & Conditioner and is now stalking her nearest CVS for a constant supply.  She's even kept the sample bottles I brought so she can refill them because "you never know'.  She also tried the Frizz Free Shine  and the Smoothing Shampoo & Conditioner on La Princesa's hair.  The Frizz Free does shine, but she's so inquita it's kind of hard to apply it properly, but the shampoo & conditioner are "excellent".  Thank Goodness, because the hair is as unruly as she is!

BB claimed the Dove Toning Body Cream Personal Wash and the Luminous Clean Wet Cleansing Towelettes.  First of all, the scents of the products? Heaven. Both products are supposed to leave a healthier skin/glow, but I don't know if it's because I scrub so much due to the scent or what, but I'm a glowin'!  Actually, the Luminous towelettes have clay in them and I only use them once a week for a truly deep cleaning- yes, they're that potent.  Babushka really doesn't use foundation too much, it's more the eye area that gets the emphasis, however if you do wear face products this would be a great addition to your daily beauty cleansing. For me, I use the Pond's Evening Soothe Wet Cleansing Towelettes with chamomile & white tea as my nightly cleaner; divine. And I got a whole bunch of packets at the Vivemejor lounge.  Oh yeah.

My DIL, daughter in law, is a TRESemme user and was very happy and appreciative of the shampoo & conditioner she received.  She didn't really have many split ends, but her hair was healthier and looking great.  As I stated- she was very happy with the TRESemme.

And now the foods.  Yum, Yum, and YUM! Yep, that about covers it. Except to say there's no beating the taste of Hellman's, the fufu de platano I made with the bouillon was killer, and my lasagna made with Ragu?  Let's put it this way, if Sweetie hadn't already proposed to me he would have after he tried the lasagna.  

Y ahora it's your turn to try the products.  The marvelous people of Unilever are sending two dancers of Babushka's Baile a box filled with goodies.  You choose if you'd like the Beauty or the Barriga (Belly) box.  Tough choice, I know.  

The entries.  Please leave a comment for each  one you complete along with your email address.  I will announce the winner on October 6th- so you have until 11:59 on Friday the 5th to enter.

MANDATORY:  Go to BB's Feibu page and under this post say which product you'd like to try.
