Grandma Rec: Alba Hawaian Spa Papaya Mango Body Cream

As you guys know my Grandma was in intensive care during this holiday season but I’m happy to say she’s on her way to a speedy recovery. The Doctors are amazed! I love that woman! She’s such a fighter, just like my mommy! Thanks for all your prayers and support. It really helped! Grandma loves you!
Anyway, I’ve been staying by her side, and she’s been lying on a hospital bed for over two weeks now so I’ve been giving her plenty of massages to keep her circulation in check. There is only one lotion that Grandma let’s me massage her with and that’s the Alba Hawaian Spa Papaya Mango Body Cream.
I gave it to her about two months ago, and when she woke up from being sedated, she specifically asked for it. This has a delicious aroma of pure and natural fruit. Abuela told me that once I started rubbing this on her, the scent seemed to lift her mood. It brought back memories of when she would pick the mango trees from behind her farm in the Dominican Repubic. It’s really delicious, but the best thing about this is how luxuriously soft and silky this leaves her skin, while making her smell fantastic plus I love the fact that 98% of these ingredients are organic and botanical. She loves this, and her granddaughter loves it too!

Today’s her birthday! She’s 86 years young. I’m making her a sweet Dominican pineapple cake. Yum!

I can’t emphasize this enough to you, please cherish and love your family. I come from a crazy and huge Dominican family. And although we all fight, and have disagreements, in the end, we all love each other deeply and would do anything for each other.

Big Hugs,
