Simple Pleasure: My Shower Routine
Sometimes, it really is about the little things. I'm not really a morning person but the products above are currently combining to lift my mood before I step out of the shower.
Firstly, the Rahua Shampoo and Conditioner. I really hesitated over this purchase because of the cost but the products are so highly recommended, I had to give them a try. As promised, you don't need to use a lot to get the desired results and I'm thrilled to report that the shampoo foams and rinses away completely, which is something I've had trouble with previously with other SLS free formulas. I really like the smell too which is always a bonus.
The Live Native Essential Earth Exfoliating Cleanser* has a really unusual texture and looks a little strange. To use, you scoop out a small blob of the paste and mix with water to get the desired consistency. I prefer to use it in the shower as it creates less mess. It's recommended that you use a press and roll type action with it but I confess, I tried this and failed and resorted to my more usual massaging in large slow circles method. This works just fine for me and I think of it as my little cave woman moment!
I bought the Haus of Gloi Spring Tonic #1 Whipped Soap with my Valentine's order and it has sat patiently in a drawer ever since. I've not tried any of the whipped soaps before but I love the texture. It feels a bit like a very creamy shaving foam (the tradition variety). The Spring Tonic #1 scent is refreshingly zesty without being overpowering which is perfect for my grumpy morning self.
What are the simple pleasure in your morning routine?
