Today I thought I’d share a peek at my bathroom shelfie (yep, a selfie of my bathroom shelf) and the products I’ve been reaching for most.
MORNING SHOWER | Roger & Gallet Bienfaits Invigorating Shower Gel is one of those rare make-me-smile in the morning products. It smells as good as the perfume line and I love how the orange, bergamot & lemon scent lingers in the bathroom and beyond after I’ve used it. Happily its soap/ sulphate/ paraben free formula doesn’t irritate my dry, sensitive skin; it’s just a pleasure to use.
MORNING CLEANSE | This Works Light Time Cleanse & Go is the newest addition to my shelf and a real favourite. Designed to rejuvenate and hydrate tired skin, it essentially provides an instant mini facial. It starts off as thick balm, which I massage into dry skin, then add water to activate the Vitamin C content and give my skin a wake up call. I just leave it on while I shower, then rinse off after with a flannel. Smells beautiful, gorgeous texture, rinses off easily, leaves my skin feeling beaut - job done.
THE SCRUB | Arran Aromatics Seaweed & Mineral Salt Scrub is a weekly treatment to slough off dead skin cells and the dregs of any self tan, leaving my skin feeling baby soft. It smells like the sea, contains minerals and moisturising oils and works really well on legs pre shaving. I find it just as effective as similar much pricier scrubs by NEOM and ESPA, at around a third of the price.
BEDTIME BATH | MOA Fortifying Green Bath Potion contains a herbal blend to de-stress the mind, ease sore muscles and tone skin, so a real all rounder! I adore the apothecary style packaging and unusual peppermint and fennel scent, which I find really uplifting. I love plunging into this when I’ve had one of those days where I want to shut the world out and unwind before bed.
THE CURL REVAMPER | Boucleme Curl Cleanser & Conditioner are part of a range for proper curly hair. My hair used to be way more curly than it is now, with a mix of loose ringlets and tousled waves. Styling it has straightened out the curls a lot, which is annoying when I fancy having them back for a while… greedy I know. This sulphate-free formula cleans and conditions without stripping the hair. I tested it on naturally dried hair with a little of the Curl Defining Gel and together they did seem to add softness and a little more definition to my waves. I also tested it on my daughter’s ringlety curls which looked gorgeous after… if you have truly spiral curls, I’d definitely give this a go. These mini bottles are part of a travel kit, which I always think is a great way to try new hair products.
