My shower routine

Hi there!

Thanks for checking out my blog! This is my first post and I plan to do many more all on things beauty related. I hope you like it! 

Disclaimer: I am not being paid to endorse any of the products mentioned in this post.

For this first post I thought I would write about my shower routine because I know girls are always interested in the products others use and how they use them. Keep reading!

The very first thing I always do in the shower is wash my hair. I use a lush solid shampoo bar. I absolutely love it! It makes my hair super soft and shiny. After I lather and rise the shampoo I apply Tresemme Liquid Gold Shine Therapy for some added shine. I leave that in my hair for a few minutes before rinsing it. 

While I am letting the liquid gold sink in, I wash my feet and underarms. Sounds weird right? I started doing this after I realized that even after my shower, my underarms still sometimes smelt like deodorant. So, I started washing under my arms with my hands before I use a loofa for my whole body. The body wash I use is Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Wash. It's great for my dry skin! 

The next step is shaving. I hate shaving. It takes so much time! I don't use any one particular type of razor because they are super expensive so I usually end up buying whatever I have a coupon for. As far as shaving cream goes I use Eos brand. After I shave I rinse my body and my hair. 

Finally, I use St. Ives Apricot Scrub on my face and body for super smooth skin.

Once I'm out of the shower, I use witch hazel and Ponds Dry Skin cream on my face. In case you don't know, witch hazel is a natural astringent that really cleans your skin without drying it out. I highly recommend it regardless of what type of skin you have (dry, oily, combo, ect). To moisturize the rest of my body I use Shea Moisture Argan oil and raw shea lotion.

Well, that's pretty much it! All of the products I mentioned can be bought at Target except the Lush Shampoo bar which can be bought at Lush. I hope you enjoyed this post! If you would like me to review any of the products I mentioned just leave a comment!

Have a fabulous day!
