How To Spruce Up Your Shower Routine

Some people prefer tea, some prefer coffee, some people prefer showers, I prefer baths. Always have, always will. Growing up in a house where daily baths were essential has made me a proper water baby but sadly I can no longer enjoy daily baths as where I'm currently living only has a shower. That being said, there are definitely some perks to only having a shower. It drastically cuts down how long it takes me to get ready in the morning and it also means I get to try out cool products specifically designed for shower users. I love bath bombs as much as the next person but mainly for the novelty, most of the time they just irritate my skin. I enjoy more practical products that get the job done but are fun and enjoyable to use at the same time.
Nivea Luxurious Shower Silk Mousse Creme Soft with Almond Oil - £2.99
This is such a fun product to use and it actually works at the same time. You just shake the can and spray the mousse into your hands or straight onto your body and use it as a regular body wash. It has the classic Nivea scent which I personally love. It's formulated with Precious Silk Extract and Almond Oil for an extremely moisturising finish. It's also a great substitute for shaving cream!

Herbal Essences Bio Renew White Strawberry & Sweet Mint Shampoo - £6
Sometimes I get stuck in a rut with shampoos either because I get bored of the scent or because the formula just doesn't seem to work with my hair anymore, but this has completely changed my shampoo game. I'm so glad I found this as it's made washing my hair one of the highlights of my day! (Yes I know, I'm a sad case). It's perfect for those with fine hair who like a shampoo that's clarifying but still gentle enough to use every day. It also smells like sweets which I still can't get over! The scent lasts all day and I love how soft and shiny it makes my hair. I would highly recommend giving this a go. I'm already on my second bottle! 

Happy Place Cosmetics Gummy Bear Soap - £4.50
I know soap seems a little bit old fashioned but I've become obsessed with this one from HPC. You get a massive block for less than £5 and not only does it smell fruity and amazing but it also leaves the skin feeling extra clean and moisturised. Hubby and I have got to have one on the go at all times! 

Dove Nourishing Care Shower Oil with Moroccan Argan Oil - £4.99
This is a great product to add a touch of luxury to your routine without breaking the bank. With 55% nourishing oils, this silky shower oil moisturises the skin without leaving a residue. It has a lovely warm, comforting scent which lingers for a good couple hours. You can apply it directly to the skin but I like to pop it onto my scrunchie for a bit of foam action. 

Happy Place Cosmetics Sugar Shea Body Scrubs - £14
I like to use a body scrub at least twice a week to keep my skin looking healthy and smooth. It's also a must for my keratosis pilaris which makes my arms look dry and dull. Kirstie recently launched these amazing sugar scrubs which have made such a difference with my dry, scaly skin. My limbs look luminous and glowy and my skin feels extremely soft and nourished. The particles are big enough to give a proper exfoliation without scratching the skin, plus it doesn't sting because it's made with sugar, not salt. I have the scents Confetti Cake and Salted Caramel Popcorn and they're both so good, I don't think I can pick a favourite! 


What products do you use to make your shower routine more exciting?

  2. I have always been a shower person and always will mainly because very rarely anyone will take bath in Malaysia where it's so freaking hot and humid. Shower can be a relaxing experience too provided we buy the right stuff for ourself. I do love Dove products in general, it a great brand.
