Eclipse Spa: Sexy Man Lotion & Woody
When Anne Keefe, from Eclipse Spa, offered to send some Sexy
Man Lotion and Woody Soap, I said ‘sign me up.’ I then
informed Mr. Happy Hippie that he’d be my guinea pig for
some tantalizing sounding products. The Mr. then said, “What
- you don’t think I’m sexy enough?”, rolled his
eyes, and went back to plodding away on the computer.
Perhaps my presentation was all wrong to him. However, when
the box of products from Eclipse
Spa came, the Mr. soon
his tune. The aromatic scents wafted out of the box, and the
included: Organic “Sexy Man” Energy Lotion, Organic
Bamboo Shower Gel, Eucalyptus Sandalwood and “Woody” soap.
Mr. Happy Hippie tried out both soaps in one shower session – men
are efficient in that way. Upon exiting the shower, he said, “You
know, I really like these – they aren’t froofy.” For
those who need a translation, froofy, in urban slang, means
something consisting of a feminine nature, taste, or attitude.
the Mr. Happy Hippie test, I personally tried the soaps out as
to provide more detail to the experience. Before
even trying them, I had to appreciate that the soaps are
and made with organic ingredients. The Woody soap contains
a smidge of actual wild cedar wood bits in it – giving the soap a
mild grit. Like a soft skin buffer, the grit helps brush away dead,
dry skin cells leaving the skin soft and smooth. The Eucalyptus
sandalwood soap also had a mild, appealing grit also giving skin
a freshly scrubbed feel. Eucalyptus is known to be antibacterial & antiviral
while the sandalwood exhibits a balancing and grounding effect.
Both the Woody
and Eucalyptus Sandalwood soaps transcended
me to a forest after a fresh rain, and the smell of cut
and just a touch of spice. These are manly scents, but
altogether totally appealing to a woman as well. It’s often hard for
me to find a soap that both of us can enjoy, and both of these
scents are invigorating for me, and something I would want my man
to use, and hopefully smell like afterwards.
Some soaps leave a greasy film, or don’t wash off completely.

Man ‘Energy’ Lotion
When I informed Mr. Happy Hippie that he had to put the ‘Energy’ Lotion on after his shower, he looked at me with a raised eyebrow. “First
the Woody Soap, and now Energy Lotion? What kind of web site are
you running anyway?” “Just put it on – besides
your skin could use it”, I commanded.
He applied the lotion to his arms and legs, and like
a thirsty desert landscape, his skin absorbed it
quickly. Shocked at
how dry, and alienated his poor skin was, he commented
on how the
lotion made his skin feel better. Slightly minty
hint of citrus,
the scent was very subtle, and not overpowering.
The perfect manly lotion! This lotion contains a wonderful
oils as well, such as Sunflower oil, coconut oil,
oil, beeswax, Tamuno oil, Sheabutter, Raspberry seed
oil, Evening primrose oil, and rose hip oil. Yes,
all of those! It’s a wonderful absorbing cream that leaves even the most
abused “manly” skin moisturized.
I like this lotion,” he commented. “It’s not
froofy smelling.” Again, with the froofy.
This thick, creamy body moisturizer for men also
contains a natural sunscreen of 18spf. Again,
for a guy who
doesn’t like to
fuss, this a convenient all-in-one product.
The next day, I noticed the Sexy Man Energy Lotion
was assigned to ‘his side’ on the vanity. This was a clear sign
to back off, as he wanted to use it. Success.
Bamboo Shower Gel
Finally, I told Mr. Happy Hippie that there
was one more organic body product to test
Bamboo Shower Gel. The
Mr. loves shower gel, as it is another ‘efficient’ body
product. The shower gel has a woodsy scent, infused with a hint
of dandelion and rosemary. This is another wonderful organic product
that has no synthetics, preservatives and is completely biodegradable.
Father’s Day coming up, these body products make an
excellent gift for a busy Dad. Some men
tend to neglect their skin, so what better gift from a significant
other than organic, earth friendly products that
smell ‘manly’ and are very beneficial. And, there's
nothing sexier than a man who cleans up well, but still has a manly
Spa offers many affordable organic body products that will
be sure to be
used and appreciated.
