You all know I’ve been big on pampering myself these days [I’m fully aware it’s a bit obsessive]. Mom life takes a lot out of me, so (in my mind) buying genuinely good products to target certain concerns gives me back what I’m losing.
Lately I’ve felt that my shower routine product lineup has been pretty awesome. I truly love all of these products and have been using them each for at least a few months before recommending them to you. So take a step inside my shower (don’t even let your mind go there…) and check out all the great items!
On days where I have extra time, I’ll apply certain products prior to hopping in. Whether it’s a nice face mask like the Exfoliating Treatment Mask from TULA or a hair mask like the R+CO Palm Springs Pre-Shampoo Treatment Mask. This just provides extra TLC for targeted areas, but by no means does this new Mama have the time to do this daily! I’d say-once a week.
Once I’m in, I grab my shave gel. An old favorite is the EOS Shave Cream in Vanilla Bliss, but I’ve recently been using the Aveeno Active Naturals Therapeutic Shave Gel. The difference between the two is merely cream vs. gel. My razor is the Gillette Venus Embrace-Sensitive & I will never use any other!
Next up: hair. Due to my rose complexion, I opt for cool-toned hair. It proves difficult to maintain in between my appointments, so a nice purple shampoo makes a world of difference. I’ve used some form of a purple shampoo for about 5 years now, but in the past two years I’ve become a bit of an AVEDA snob. Their Blue Malva shampoo & conditioner do the job, while keeping my hair nice and healthy. AVEDA products are almost 100% plant-based, and the removal of harsh chemicals during my hair care routine has proven amazing results (especially for a bleach blonde)!
While the conditioner is doing its thing-I grab one of my oh so yummy (but not actually edible) Harper and Ari exfoliating cubes in peach. Once I finished rinsing the scrub and conditioner, I finish off with using the MURAD Time Release Acne Cleanser on my face, chest, and upper back.
After I dry off, I apply a few more products right away. First the AVEDA Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair is smoothed through my damp hair to provide additional conditioning and helps with detangling. After brushing my hair out with the Wet Brush, I apply the Living Proof-Style Lab Blowout, which aids in fighting frizz in this FL humidity.
Last, I grab any one of my favorite body lotions. Basically, if I’m in a hurry I use the Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant Spray Moisturizer. If I have a bit more time, than I use The Body Shop Strawberry Body Butter (legit smells like Heaven).
I hope I helped anyone currently seeking to change things up. I truly love all of these products and would love to hear what you think. Comment below!
