Shower Essentials

Something I rarely read or see about is what people use in the shower. Its odd piece of information to share but I think it would be quite interesting to know and see reviews about shower products. That is basically the reason behind this post. There are so many different shower products from shower gels, loofahs to lotions and I only know of a few of the products. So make sure you leave comments about what your favorite products are or what interesting products you use in the shower.
Caress Evenly Gorgeous Exfoliating Body Wash $5-$6 Drugstores and General Stores
This smells amazing! It is made with burnt brown sugar and karite butter. It smells sweet, creamy and delicious! Not only does it hydrate your skin but it also exfoliates to remove all those dead skin cell to reveal beautiful skin. The ingredients within the product also as mentioned by the name work to even out your skin tone. I think that this is an overall plus because with one product you can do so much with your skin and smell great at the same time. This has been one of my favorites for almost over year! It is definitely a by go to body wash.
Loofah's $0.50-$1.00 Dollar Stores, Drugstores, General Stores
I personally don't like to use a wash cloth to cleanse by body. I prefer a brightly colored loofah! Loofahs are very inexpensive and work well to remove dirt and oil from your body. The net material also helps to exfoliate your skin and remove dry skin. The colors range is huge you can just about find any color you want and even ones with glitter and metallic colors.
Loofah Sticks $1.00-$2.00 Dollar Store, Drug Store, General Store
This is my second favorite loofah product the Loofah Stick. These are used to get those hard to reach areas like your back. Yet, again I love to choose bright colors that make washing up fun and festive. Just like the Loofah these are inexpensive and a steal because they work really well for cleaning your body.
Schick Quattro Women Trimstyle $11.00 Drugstores and General Stores
This little shaver does wonders! The Trimstyle is quite the duo, it a razor on one end for shaving your legs and armpits and then the other end is a bikini trimmer. It only takes 1 little battery that comes with it to power it and you can trim and shave all hairs on your body. I love this and it is the only shaver that I use. The razor end uses a four razor blade head to ensure that it is removing all the hairs in a efficient way. The trimmer end is adjustable so that you can change the head to the length of hair you would like to remove.
Skintimate Moisturizing Cream Shave Frosted Velvet $2-$6 Drugstores, General Stores
What I truly like about this product is that it really does moisturize your skin so that your skin is not left dry or flaky like some shaving creams leave the skin feeling.
Vaseline Cocoa Butter Deep Conditioning Body Lotion $6-$12 Drugstore, General Store
This is one of the best deep conditioning body lotions that I have ever used. It is a thick cream feeling lotion but once you rub it into your skin it feels light and soft. It protects and gets rid of any dry skin. It also helps to even out your skin tone! It also has the nice cocoa butter smell!

These are all the items I use to take a shower minus face and hair products of course. Let me know if you would like me to do a post on those.

If you have used any of these products let me know or if you know of some other great shower essentials! and make sure to vote in the poll!

  2. i love the loofah sticks! the ones you have in the photo have a bigger loofah on them than mine, so it looks like i'll be going out to the drugstore tomorrow to buy a bigger one! hah i love the deep conditioning lotion from vaseline, too, they make a lot of great lotions!

  3. i like the caress body washes, my favorite one would be the Tahitian renewal one, it smells really tropical and it also has pomegranate exfoliating seeds, perfect for spring.
