Shower SHELFie - get the pun? ^.< Photo of the current products I use during and after my showers~
I always talk about my bath experiences in my Lush bath bomb reviews, so I may as well share my shower confidential with you guys. :') This shower routine is a basic one, so that I can quickly refresh myself ready to seize the day ahead. I don't really switch it up apart from shower gels and hair masks. On mornings where I have more time or desire a bit of pampering, I switch over to high end products. Which I shall write about some other time, so this post won't be too long hopefully~ ^^
Starting off from left to right~
• Imperial Leather Enchanting Romance Body Wash - £1.99
I only go for two scents - fruity or seductive florals. Not a huge fan of calming/ocean scents (apart when I'm stressed). Currently loving this shower gel! The key notes to the fragrance are plum blossom and violet, which creates this beautifully seductive scent. Although the plum does reminds me of Christmas, giving me a festive vibe rather than sensual. Along with the lovely scent, it also does a pretty good job at moisturising, so kudos to Imperial Leather!
I was sent this item by femfresh but I actually ended up adoring the product more than I expected. It's so refreshing and soothing, it is now one of my favourite shower essentials! Getting a bit intimate like the wash, femfresh's Daily Intimate Wash is great for taking care of sensitive skin (down below). Just like the rest of your body, it's essential to give some love to even the most sensitive areas of your bodies, which is why femfresh works great since has a fantastic low pH formula to meet the needs of intimate, delicate and sensitive skin easily bothered by perfumes and harsh soap-based cleansers. You can also use this as a body wash or face wash because the formula is that gentle, making it very versatile. ^.<
• Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Shampoo - £3.99
My go to drugstore shampoo. I've had my whole head bleached 4 or 5 times in total; how my hair is still in pretty good condition with my constant dying on top, I don't know. But I believe this shampoo plays a little role in helping my hair, the hydration it offers is bliss. It also smells amazing like all Herbal Essences product do.
• Kao Essential Ultra Honey & Shea Butter Hair Mask - Rich Premium - £7.90
You may have seen this mask in My Top Hair Mask For Damaged Hair. I don't use conditioner because wellllll this mask plays the main role in keeping my hair alive! My hair feels straw-like when I use conditioner so I like to stick to hair masks. I do use other hair masks too but I always end up running back to this baby.
• Soap & Co Body Scrub Large Passion Fruit - £44.99
Scrubs and exfoliators are essential to me as I have keratosis pilaris, which is a skin condition where too much keratins builds up, causing the surface of the skin to thicken. Exfoliating dead skins cells and moisturising is a must. On the pricy side, I am yet to find an cheaper alternative body scrub that works as well as Soap & Co's one. Packed with sea salt, minerals and natural moisturising oils, it honestly blesses my skin. I use this before my shower gel, it leaves my skin baby smooth and so hydrated! Loveeeee it~
• Superdrug Cocoa Butter Body Lotion £1.49
I'm not really fussed with body lotions as long as they smell nice. I prefer Superdrug's cocoa over Palmers as it's more light. It moisturises and smells great, but not one of my favourites as I mentioned before I prefer fruity or seductive floral scents.
Of course sensitive skin also requires care after cleansing too. ^.< To keep fresh throughout the day (especially when mother nature strikes) these are very useful. Also formulated with a gentle and low, pH formula , they do a brilliant job at cleansing, refreshing and soothing. These are almost like baby wipes but it's focused on making your intimate skin happy clean.
• The Body Shop Mango Body Butter £14
Surely everyone knows of the body shop body butters. :') The mango one is formulated for very dry skin, it's very thick, melts, moisturises and nourishes intensely. I love the sharpness of the fresh mango fragrance, can't get enough of it! I don't recommend this during summer though, as it does feel quite heavy.
What are some of your shower/bath essentials? ^^ Show me your SHOWER SHELFie, let's get it trending hue~
