What's in my shower?

My shower product roster is always evolving, but I'm loving the line up right now.

1. Aveda Blue Malva Shampoo (available at Thomas West Salon)

I've been using this shampoo on and off for seven years. It neutralizes brassiness and prevents build-up. I SWEAR by using liters of shampoo in the shower. One pump is exactly the amount of shampoo you should be using, and it's just easy. AND if you're using Aveda liters, there's a great price cut. One liter of shampoo or conditioner contains the same amount as four small bottles, but for the price of three. Oh, and there's less waste. Yes please! (P.S. This shampoo doubles as an amazing Jewelry cleaner!)

2. Pureology Perfect for Platinum Conditioner (available at Thomas West Salon)

Jam packed with protein, chamomile for softening, lemon for brightening, Coriander for nourishing. If you're blonde, you need all of the above.

3. Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel (available at Thomas West Salon)

A no fuss cleanser. I have sensitive skin and this cleanser is gentle yet totally productive. It removes all my makeup and a little goes a long way!

4. Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant (available at Thomas West Salon)

UM! Microfoliant is my JAM! I get spooked by exfoliating with hard scratchy scrubs. Something tells me if it FEELS rough on your skin, it IS rough on your skin. This microfoliant sprinkles into your hand in powder form, rubbed together with water it becomes a creamy paste. TRUST ME... this makes your face feel like you're eight years old. It's fairy dust I swear.

5. Trader Joes Refresh Body Wash (available at Trader Joes, and amazon.com)

Inexpensive, pure ingredients, totally affordable, refreshing fragrance. I feel so fresh and so clean after loofahing with this stuff!

6. L'Occitane Shower Oil (available at usa.loccitane.com)

If you follow the blog you know I'm obsessed with this liquid gold. If you missed me raving about it check this out!

(I know it's confusing that I have two body washes. I use the body wash to clean, and the shower oil to shave.)

Good Morning!

HI GUYS! I miss you!

Allow me to introduce you to a LIFE CHANGING SHOWER EXPERIENCE. L’OCCITANE products are ALL dreamy and luxurious, but THIS SHOWER OIL is purely decadent.

I was skeptical. An oil? In the… shower? Doesn’t oil repel water? I started imagining myself panicking trying to rid the never rinsing oil in my shower and slipping around like Bambi on ice. But THIS oil, turns into a silky lather when mixed with water. IT SMELLS LIKE A DREAM, it is razorburn’s worst enemy, it is the best way to start your morning.

Now hear me out, this is a $24 body wash essentially. I know that’s a lot of money compared to your Dove, Suave or Bath & Body Works that are full of fillers and nasty overpowered fragrances. This is the most justifiable $24 I’ve ever spent. Do yourself the same favor, you deserve it! ;)
