Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser – I’ve been using this as a standard body cleanser for years now, but lately I’ve reverted back to using it as a face cleanser as well. I’ve had some issues with dermatitis this winter, so I went back to basics in my skin care routine so I could figure out the source of the problem.
Paula’s Choice Hydralight One Step Face Cleanser
– This is my all-time favourite cleanser, and one that you can guarantee I’ll always have sitting on my shower shelf. I’ve gone back to using this on a daily basis now that I’ve figured out it’s not a culprit in ‘dermatitis saga 2016’, and my skin is much happier for it.
Paula’s Choice Pore Normalizing Cleanser (sample size)
– I picked up this sample sized cleanser the last time I placed a Paula’s Choice
order, with the intent of my partner Sebastian using it to help keep his clogged pores at bay. I’ve been “borrowing” this to use as a spot treatment cleanser whenever I can feel a breakout brewing. A few of my friends have told me this is is a strong ass
cleanser, and can be quite drying on the skin but I think because I only use it occasionally I haven’t seen any of the negative effects.
Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant – This is a long-time favourite of mine, and I use it every couple of days as a manual facial exfoliant. I alternate between using this or my Eve Lom muslin cloth, depending on my mood.
St Tropez Gradual Tan In Shower Lotion – I’m dipping my toe into the world of self-tanning this season, and I thought a gradual tanner would be a good place to start. So far I am liking this product, although the fact that you have to leave it on in the shower for three minutes has restricted my use of it to evening showers (which I rarely have), and weekend use. Due to that, I am not yet a bronzed goddess… But watch this space.
L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil – This is one of my favourite shower products, and one that I’ve repurchased quite a few times now. It feels like such a little luxury when I use this, it’s so luxurious and smells amazing.
Burt’s Bees Honey & Shea Sugar Scrub – I have to admit, body scrub is probably my least used shower product. However, considering I’m trying out different self tanners this season it’s become something of a necessity. This is another of my favourite products, and if you’re into gourmand scented body products it’s worth picking up for the scent alone.
Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Shampoo & Conditioner – This is my go-to inexpensive hair cleaning duo, and one that really works wonders on my hair despite the low price point. I always return to these products when I’m at a loss with what to use, as they’re my old faithfuls and they’re guaranteed to leave my hair looking and feeling soft and smooth.
LUSH Big Shampoo – If you haven’t yet tried LUSH’s Big shampoo, what the hell are you waiting for? I try to use this one a week to deep clean my hair and give it a little bit of extra bounce and shine.
I love Jergens, and apparently so does America as it’s their number one selling bodycare brand. *cue trivia music* I’ve been a fan of the fragrance free daily moisture
from Jergensfor quite a while now, so I was really excited to try a new product from their body moisturiser range. I’ve been using the Shea Butter conditioning moisturiser for a couple of weeks now, and I’m happy to say that it was love at first try. It is quite a bit thicker than my usual go-to fragrance free moisturiser, and it’s perfectly suited for the colder weather. I also love the scent, I was trying for ages to figure out what it reminded me of and I settled on shortbread biscuits (delicious
). The moisturiser feels thick and luxurious but applies easily to the skin and sinks in nice and quickly. It’s as gentle on my sensitive skin as the fragrance free moisturiser, which I am ecstatic about as ‘gentle’ is often not the case with a lot of other fragranced lotions. The Jergens Shea Butter Deep Conditioning Moisturiser retails for $7.99 AUD and is available for purchase from Priceline
