What’s in my shower? Body, skin, and hair products galore

As a beauty blogger, I am lucky enough to be sent a massive amount of beauty products to try and review. What that means in reality, is that my bedroom and bathroom is overflowing with products. Recently on Instagram I posted a picture of everything that is in my shower at the moment. People were shocked/impressed with the sheer quantity of products. Then my mum added ‘what’s in my shower’ to my blog post ideas list on my whiteboard so I knew I just had to write about them all. In this post I’m going to run through all of the products I’m using at the moment, and what I like about them. It’s heavy on the hair products, but also includes skincare and body products  – a bit of something for everyone.

November Empties

I know, it’s the middle of December and I’m writing about the beauty products that I used up in November. Better late than never, right? I finished up quite a few different products – hair care, skincare, makeup, and body. That was a mixture of full sized, and samples, and overall I’m feeling quite accomplished. By the way, when I say ‘repurchase’, some of them I didn’t actually purchase but got sent from brands, or got samples at counter but my evaluation remains the same – would I spend my money on them in the future. Right, now let’s get on with the reviews!

Getting ready for a date

As most of you know, I’m single and dating at the moment. As a ‘typical girl’ it takes me  forever, and a million products to get ready for a date. So, in his post I’m going to give you a behind the scenes look into the process of me getting ready for a date! I can do it in a rush, if need be, but I really would rather not. I enjoy the process – I always have music playing and usually have a pre-drink. A fair few of these products I’m using I’ve blogged about before since I like to use my tried-and-trued products, so I’ll link to the reviews where I can. I hope you enjoy this peek into my life…and if you’re the guy I’m dating, stop reading now, it’ll ruin the illusion.

Salux Cloth

Salux Cloth – the ultimate exfoliator!

Today I want to sing the praises of the Salux Cloth – this is the ultimate exfoliator! What is a salux cloth, you ask? It’s a nylon bath towel, originating from Japan. It exfoliates your skin and promotes improved blood circulation. Salux cloths create a great lather as well so you don’t need to use much product. It’s kind of similar to the texture of a synthetic bath poof, but it rinses and dries much more easily so it’s more hygienic. I’ve been using it to combat my Keratosis Pilaris (‘chicken skin’), and it has done wonders! It’s effective for exfoliating for people without KP as well, so if you want baby smooth skin, keep reading.
