Shower Saviours

 Before we get into the nitty-gritty goings on when I have a shower, can we please mention the elephant in the room? Yes, my shower tiles are awful. Yes, I hate them. Are we good? Good.

I've added a fancy focus thing to try and blur out my nasty bathroom as much as possible.
So these are the things I use in the shower. I wasn't sure what sort of photograph would be sensible here, do I take the items out of their natural habitat and picture them on my usual teal throw? That seemed a bit odd, so here they are in all their beauty on my Ikea shower shelf.

First up, I have to mention the Naked Care Shampoo and Conditioner combo. I was introduced to Naked by Danniella and I can't believe I haven't tried them sooner. I haven't been blessed with the greatest genes, and my mam has some dodgy skin disorder which I seem to have inherited a mild form of. YAY FAMILY. Where was I? Oh yes, so Naked have basically stopped my head from being patchy and sore, so that's good news. I also think that this range makes my hair shinier, which is an added bonus and one I wasn't really expecting, if I'm honest.

Next up, I have the Sugar Crush body wash from Soap & Glory. I know, I know, you've all probably seen this reviewed on every blog that exists in the history of the world, but it is such a beautiful smell. Quite tempting to have a cheeky nibble, but I wouldn't advise it, no sir. It smells sugary and limey, and it's just really great. I always feel fresh and squeaky clean after I've used this. One thing I have to mention, is Joe's reaction to it. Joe always compliments me on my smell (how romantic) when I get out the shower, yet he pretty much refuses to use it. Is it the packaging? Is it the smell that he apparently likes? Who knows, but he's costing me a small fortune in manly-smelling shower gels.

Last up, I have the Nivea In-Shower Body Moisturiser Skin Conditioner for dry skin. Name and a half, that one. So this is basically a body moisturiser for the person who has enough time to slap this on in the shower and then wash it off (after you've washed yourself, as it won't clean you) but not enough time to have a shorter shower and then put some moisturiser on afterwards. To be honest with you, I rarely put body moisturiser on and thought if I had this in the shower staring at me, then I'd be more likely to use it. Meh, it kind of worked but usually when I have a shower I tend to be in a rush so I can allow my hair enough time to dry naturally. I've used it a few times and on the odd occasion it has made my arms go a bit red and patchy but this doesn't last. Maybe I'm not washing it off properly? Or maybe it isn't suitable for sensitive skinned gals? I don't know. It's okay, it smells a bit bland and makes me long for something limey...

So that's my showering stuff. I would say essentials, but yeah, that Nivea review wasn't exactly glowing. It gets me through the day, at least. Do you have any showering holy grails I need to try?
