Beauty: What’s in my shower?

Standard

DSC07804Today I’m going through the products I have in my shower, since I’m absolutely loving them recently.

First, Shampoo. I’ve been using the Anovia Head On Detangling Shampoo. It’s a wonderful product as it is so easy to lather and then to wash out so that you get the cleanest hair and no horrible residue. It treats the hair as well since it has tea tree oil in the formula. If I’m not using this shampoo I tend to use Head and Shoulders for the same reasons.

Conditioner. I don’t use conditioner often because to be honest, I don’t feel like I need to. When I do use it though, I’ve been using the Wilko’s Fruits Rhubarb and Vanilla conditioner. I love the smell and I love the whole Fruits range which is why I have a lot of it.

Shower Gel. At the moment I’ve been alternating between two Fruits shower gels. The Strawberry and Pomegranate one and the Lemon and Black Pepper one. The scents are so strong but not in an overpowering way. They’re just so delicious. The Fruits range are currently 3 for £3, so they’re a good bargain too.

So far, these tend to be my typical shower products but recently I’ve found or been given some hotel ‘freebies’. First I have two from a London hotel, I think, it doesn’t say on the bottles, and I’ve got a body wash and a shampoo. They’re Refresh products ‘enriched with natural extracts of Aloe Vera’ and I have to say they’re quite good. The next three are from Letoonia Resorts (in Turkey I think) and I was given these by my grandma. I have a shampoo, a shower gel and a hair conditioner. Once again, these work pretty well and I’ve had no complaints from any of my hotel ‘goodies’.

That’s it!

Beauty: Flexitol Hand Balm

Standard

DSC07778Do you have dry, cracked hands? Have you tried every hand lotion under the sun and yet nothing is working? Have you given up or are you determined not to take a trip to the doctors? I may have the answer because once, fair follower, I was like you.

I often struggle with dry hands due to a multitude of reasons from washing my hands too much, genetics and changes in the weather. I got to a point where my hands were in an awful state. They were horrifically dry, red and sore and uncomfortable. The longer it went on I realised it wasn’t being affected by the weather anymore but rather was caused by the fact I couldn’t find a decent hand lotion and I didn’t apply hand lotion enough.

This was all changed when I found Flexitol Hand Balm as a recommendation my mum got from her friend. This hand lotion is brilliant. It is relatively cheap at approximately £5 and only needs to be used sparingly. All you need is a small ‘blob’ of the lotion and then rub it into your hands. It manages to cover all of your hands, doesn’t have an awful sticky or nasty residue and works surprisingly fast. Within a day you do notice a difference as long as your apply the lotion regularly.

I really do recommend this product, it has worked so well for me and I still use it from time to time to prevent my hands from reaching the stage they once did.

Beauty: Bristows Dry Shampoo

Standard

Close Up Dry ShampooLet’s talk about something hair related once again…

Today I want to recommend Bristow’s Dry Shampoo. I usually use Batiste Dry Shampoo, but I thought I’d give this one a try as it was slightly cheaper. For me, it works just as good if not better. The product can be used  to refresh your hair between washes or to give your hair some more volume. The way to use the product is by spraying it at the roots in the areas that usually become greasy first, or are greasy, and work the product in with your hands. Often the product will leave a white, powdery residue which will need to be rubbed into the hair and roots. After you have done this, take a comb and comb through your hair. Not only will this now neaten the hair you’ve probably messed up but it also continues to rub it in and remove any excess product. I found this product in PoundStretcher recently and it only cost me a pound! Well worth that money for sure! Great brand, great product, great price.

Beauty: Skinology Cleansers

Standard

SkinologyI want to recommend Skinology Cleansers. This is because I’ve found them to be very helpful in keeping away my breakouts and for generally cleaning my face. The difficulty in recommending things like this is that everyone’s skin is completely different and completely unique so these products may not work for everyone and may even make someone’s acne or spot related issue worse.

What do I use?

  • Skinology Tea Tree Blackhead Cleanser ‘bye-bye blackheads and don’t come back. No one likes you!’
  • Skinology Cleansing Lotion ‘our carefully balanced formula helps you on your way to cleaner, clearer skin.’

I’ve been using these products for a while, but I had a period of bad break outs so I stopped using  most of my skin products. Only recently have I started using these on a regular basis, without any of the other products I had previously, so I know that for me, these work. They help keep spots away and they’ve helped clear up the spots I have had quickly. The Blackhead Cleanser especially helps with dirt and grease. I feel like I have much cleaner and clearer skin.

Hopefully these products will be able to help you too!

Beauty and Hair: Bristow’s Shine Spray

Standard

Shine Spray Close UpLet’s talk about something hair related…

Today I want to recommend Bristow’s Shine Gloss Booster. This product basically gives your hair a much shinier look as soon as you use it. The product works as a spray, you can use as much or as little as you like. I tend to use this on wet or dry hair by just spraying on the top and underneath of my hair, I then take a brush or a comb and work the product through my hair and leave it to dry. As soon as it is dry there are noticeable results. My friends and my family have noticed my shinier hair when I use the shine spray and I know it gives my hair a much healthier and alive appearance. It also helps tame frizz and leaves the hair super soft and what makes it even better is that I found this in Poundland, so it only cost me a pound! A pound for such a renowned brand and a great product = perfect.

Beauty/Skincare: Rhubarb Shower Creme

Standard

Shower CremeWilko Shower CremeA new Monday, a new Beauty and skincare item, a new recommendation. So… today’s recommendation is  Wilko’s Tangy Rhubarb Shower Crème. This pink body wash works well, firstly doing its purpose: cleaning, but also in moisturising the skin and making you smell of wonderful rhubarb. Perhaps for an acquired taste; I think this product is luxurious and smells good enough to eat, really folks, it smells like those Haribo Rhubarb Stars. Delicious. In addition, it was a super cheap purchase. It costs less than a £1 normally and when I got it, it was on sale meaning it only cost me 50p for a whole 250ml bottle.
