Tag: What's in my shower?

 Hey Everyone! 

I was asking for ideas of what to post about, and someone suggested doing a "What's in my Shower" post. I thought it would be a fun, quick and easy post, so here it is! Also, if you have any ideas for future posts, let me know in the comments!

CHI Ionic Color Protect Shampoo - I purchased this for a very discounted price at Marshalls. I always like trying out new Shampoos to find my "perfect one", but I still haven't seemed to come across one that I can't live without. I thought this shampoo was very average - nothing I'd probably re-purchase.
One n' Only Argan Oil Restorative Mask - I've used this mask for the past month, maybe more. I use it after I Shampoo my hair, typically 3 times a week, and I honestly don't really see any difference in my hair. It has so many raves, but it just didn't do anything for me. Another product I won't be re-purchasing. 
Beyond the Zone Protein Cocktail - I usually spray this in my hair after I get out of the shower as an added leave-in. I've had it for a few months now, and I think it's a decent product. I really like the scent, and it doesn't weigh my hair down or leave it looking greasy. I do think with continued use, it made my hair feel a little stronger. When I run out, I'll probably try a different product though, and maybe only re-purchase if I find a great deal on it.
Kiss my Face Moisture Shave - This is my favorite shaving cream to reduce razor burn. It does really work! (See my review here)
St Ives Oatmeal and Shea Butter Body Wash - I really love this body wash - it leaves my skin feeling soft and moisturized. I have pretty dry legs, so this helps keeps them hydrated better than any other shower gel/soap I've used.
Earth Therapeutics Tea Tree Oil Refreshing Foot Scrub - I purchased mine at Marshalls, but they sell the whole line at Ulta. It's a really great gritty exfoliating scrub. It's for the feet, but I actually use it on my body prior to using self tanner, or to get rid of hard to remove self tanner. It's my favorite exfoliate! Even though it's harsh, it doesn't dry out my skin.
Bath & Body Works Sweet Pea Body Spray - I don't really keep this in my shower, but I keep it on an outside shelf. Once I get out of the shower and dry myself, I spritz it all over my body. Yum!
Olay Pro X Cleansing System - I usually use this in the shower once I've cooked up a little steam. I'll use it with whatever cleanser I have on hand, or African Black Soap. (See my review here)
Mr Pumice Pumice Bar - The one pictured is a brand new one I have on hand because I didn't wanna show you guys the actual gross one I have in my shower. Once my feet are a little softened from the hot water. I'll scrub the heck out of my heels with this to rid my feet of any dead skin. Everyone should own a Mr. Pumice!
African Black Soap - I usually take a shower at night while all of my makeup is on, so I'll lather a little soap in my hands and wash my face with it - or use it with my Olay Pro X. (See my review here)
Massage Mitt - For extra exfoliation of my body. I like using these or exfoliation gloves as opposed to wash cloths or loofahs. It helps a lot with rough skin and in-grown hairs.
Venus Breeze Razor - I've always liked men's razors better than women's razors because they give a closer shave - but I ended up purchasing this Venus razor with an awesome P&G coupon I had, and I haven't looked back since!

Are there any products in your shower you think I should try??! I'd love some suggestions of your favorite Shampoos and Leave in Conditioner!

I now tag the following bloggers to do this post! 
(Of course you don't have to.. it's just for fun!)

TAG: Products I'm using right now!

 The last time I did this particular tag was over a year ago, and it was a tag that I really liked & enjoyed reading on other blogs. Since it's been so long, I thought I'd post an updated one!

Shampoo: Paul Mitchell Color Protect Daily Shampoo or Kiss My Face Big Body Shampoo.
Conditioner: I don't use Conditioner, but periodically I use the tube of conditioner that comes with the box of hair dye I use (Clairol Natural Instincts). I mainly just work it though my ends if I feel my hair is a bit dry.
Treatments: Unrefined Coconut Oil or Caster Oil. I also just purchased Beyond the Zone Protein Cocktail; which I'm loving so far.
Styling products: Fantasia Heat Protector/Polisher, Beyond the Zone Flipped Out Hair Spray & Bedhead After Party.
Styling Tools: Remington Sleek and Curl Tourmaline Ceramic Straightener & Hot Tools Ceramic Titanium Hair Curling Iron.
Shower Gel: I use whatever is in arms reach - Lately I've been using up my Bath & Body Showel Gel in the scent Sweet Pea that I received for Christmas. I also like to use Coastal Scents Black African Soap, or my good ol' pink bar of Dove.
Body moisturizer: Unrefined Shea Butter & Jojoba Oil.
Deodorant: Secret Clinical Strength.
Fake Tan: SUN Labs Dark Spray & St Tropez Gradual Tan Everyday Body Lotion.
Cleanser: Neutrogena Cleansing Towelettes & Coastal Scents Black African Soap - I don't use any specific cleansers right now.
Exfoliator: Nothing currently for my face. I sometimes use a exfoliating face brush but it's a little too harsh. I like using an exfoliation glove in a warm shower if I feel my face needs it.
Primer: Hard Candy Sheer Envy Primer (I'll be reviewing this soon)
Foundation: I switch off foundations very often. I've mostly been wearing Cinema Secrets, though.
Foundation brush: ELF Studio Stipple Brush & my new Sonia Kasuk Synthetic Flat Top Brush.
Concealer: I'm finishing up my sample of Keromask & I've been using Maybelline Fit Me Concealer quite a bit - despite it's not the best.
Powder: Rimmel Stay Matte Transparent Powder
Blusher: I wear different ones all of the time. My most worn this past month have been NARS Madly, MAC Frankly Scarlet, MAC Improvise & Illamasqua Lover.
Bronzer: Again, I wear different ones all of the time.. but my most worn this month have been NARS Irresistiblement, NARS Luster (which is actually a blush, but it's quite golden) & Rimmel Sun Dance,
Highlighter: Urban Decay Sin Eyeshadow. I've had this eyeshadow for over a year and barely used it.. I just recently discovered that its an amazing highlighter for the face and I use it every day!
Eyeshadow base: None - But, once in a great while I'll use MAC Bare Canvas.
Eyeshadows: All of the browns in my Napoleon Perdis Smoke Signals Palette, NARS Coconut Groove, MAC Cork
Eyeliner: Haven't been wearing it much, but usually MAC Point Black Liquidlast Liner and I've been using Wet n Wild's Creme Liner more often..
Curler: Shu Uemura
Mascara: Shiseido Mascara Base, Covergirl Lash Blast (orange tube) & Covergirl Professional Super Thick Lash Mascara
Brows: I use different ones all of the time because I have so many brow products I want to use up. Ones I grab for the most lately have been MUFE Eyebrow Corrector, ELF Eyebrow Kit, Maybelline Define-a-Brow & Essence Brow Pencil. To set my brows I use ELF Tame & Treat or MAC Brow Set.
Lipstick: OCC Lip Tars all month.. It's either a combo of Hush & Divine or a combo of Divine & Trick.
Lipgloss: I actually haven't been really using any colored glosses. I mostly wear clear over my lip tars, so I've been trying to use up my Victoria's Secret Lip Plumper Extreme. I like using it with the lip tars because the brush applicator makes it easy to blend the colors together. I won't repurchase this product again though..
Nail Colour: Nothing is on my nails right now because I'll be painting them tomorrow morning. I've been alternating every week, but I have to say my favorite has been Revlon Top Speed Fast Dry Nail Polish in the shade Cupid.

I'm not going to tag anyone in particular because I know some people don't like being tagged. So, I'll leave it up to you guys! I would love to see you do this tag though - if you do, please post the link to your post in my comments! If you don't have a blog and want to share "what you're using right now", post in my comments as well! I'm excited to read them!
