It’s always nice to come home after a long day and take a warm shower. It’s important to have products that make this experience enjoyable, as well as get the job done right! From exfoliating to moisturizing, you want to find the right products to suit your needs. Here are my favourite go-to shower products that I love to use and have been working wonders for me!
- EXFOLIATE: BUFFY BODY BUTTER
Overview: I am completely obsessed with this stuff! I actually look forward to the part of the week when I get to use this. It almost feels like a mini massage; it’s just so relaxing! This is a step I do about once a week to get rid of those dead skin cells.
Formulation: This exfoliator has a bunch of great natural ingredients to help your skin become soft and silky smooth. It has Cocoa Butter, Shea butter, ground rice, almonds, and the list goes on! It has a rough texture – as it is an exfoliator, which helps buff away dead skin cells. It may be a bit abrasive for those of you with sensitive skin so make sure to test it out on a small area of your body first. In terms of the scent, it smells absolutely delicious!
Application: Wet your body as well as the bar, and massage into your skin using circular motions. Make sure to apply this away from running water so the scrub has a chance to sit on the skin for a while before getting washed away. This also helps keep your scrub bar from disintegrating so every last bit is used. Now wash off and you will immediately notice how much softer your skin is!
Purchase: You can purchase the 95 g piece for $11.95 from Lush. Lush is great because they give you demos in store and even samples for you to see how it feels before you purchase. Definitely pick up a sample before you go for the full size!
- CLEANSE: OLAY BODY WASH
Overview: This is my go to cleanser that I’ve been using for a few years now. It’s super simple and gets the job done! It gets me squeaky clean and provides just the right amount of hydration.
Formulation: It is a thick and creamy formula that lathers up nicely leaving you feeling clean and fresh. It definitely keeps me moisturized and hydrated. It also has a fresh, almost buttery fragrance that I quite enjoy.
Application: Squeeze into your hands, lather all over your body, and rinse. This is great to use as a shaving cream as well!
Purchase: $4.47 from Walmart
- CONDITION: RO’S ARGAN BODY CONDITIONER
Overview: I absolutely love this rose scented conditioner. It really gives your skin a luxurious feel! I mostly use this during the winter months but its great all year. I use this when I notice my skin can use that extra bit of hydration. I generally use this about once or twice a month.
Formulation: This conditioner has a beautiful creamy texture. It is filled with cocoa butter, argan oil, almond oil, etc., all great ingredients to soften the skin. If you love the smell of roses then this is the product for you! After using this you’ll smell like you’ve been rolling around in roses all day; it’s to die for!
Application: After cleansing, I slather my body with it, let it absorb for a bit, and then rinse it off. A little goes a long way and leaves your skin feeling delightful!
Purchase: $32.95 for a 240g container from Lush
- MOISTURIZE: VASELINE INTENSIVE CARE COCOA RADIANT LOTION
Overview: Cocoa butter is one of my favourite ingredients to use on my skin so it was natural that I gravitated towards this lotion. It is a simple moisturizer that is great for hydrating dry skin.
Formulation: It has a light formula but definitely penetrates deep to hydrate. It has that delicious smell cocoa butter provides that you can’t go wrong with.
Application: After patting yourself dry with a towel, use all over your body to moisturize.
Purchase: $7.77 from Walmart
