shower & scrub!

Truth be told, I'm not a massive fan of baths. That sounds like I must smell haha but no I love nothing more than jumping in a nice warm shower and using some gorgeous pampering products.

My current favourite shower gels include some 'natural' products. I've re-purchased The Body Shop Earth Lovers shower gel, which is sulphate, paraben and colourant free several times. I'm guessing these have been discontinued as they're not available on the website any more. They're not my favourite shower gel as they're quite watery but I like the gentle formulation. I think they were around £5 each which I don't think they're worth but I used to buy them when they were on offer or with one of the many voucher codes that pop up for the body shop. Another shower gel I love is the Organic Surge Sugar Almond Shower Gel. Again this is a gel free from parabens, sls, artificial fragrances and colourants. For a little over £4 this is a great buy. It smells quite sweet but feels gentle whilst foaming and rinsing well so I will definitely re-purchase. 
For Shower Oil, I'm still enjoying using the L'occitane Almond Shower Oil* (reviewed here). My skin feels really soft after using this and it smells yummy too!

My two current body scrubs include Soap & Glory's Sugar Crush, which smells like lime and is a light scrub with brown sugar. I like that it leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth with a light scent. My ultimate all time favourite scrub is Boots Extracts Cocoa Butter Sugar Scrub which has the yummiest scent ever!Its thicker than the soap & glory scrub so ideal for more intense exfoliation. It leaves my skin so soft and smelling lovely. I also like to use the Extracts Cocoa Butter Body Moisturiser after, which smells amazing too!

Let me know if you've tried any of these!
