Top five favorite things – Shower edition

The following are five of my 'must have' things to use in the shower.  Hope you like choices & it gives you some ideas for your next trip to the drugstore.

                  Schick Intuition Plus Shaver

This is one of those shavers with the built in shave cream bar, and requires no extra shave gel.  Love that!  No fuss, no muss and this works great.  Clean, close shave with ease.

Kind of a given right?  I use both liquid & bar soap in the shower.  I prefer liquid soap that doesn't dry out my skin & smells great.  Not too much to ask. Right now I'm loving St. Ives liquid soaps and my current favorite scent is the Oatmeal & Shea Butter.  So creamy & smells amazing!
I love the Body Shop bar soaps. My favorite scent is Satsuma! I buy these soaps in multiples and take the wrapper off when I get them home.  I then leave them in my lingerie drawer until I’m ready to use them.  This not only makes the soap last longer, but will leave your clothes with a beautiful scent.
 Foot file
This is a must have in your shower.  Make sure to use when your feet are soft & damp.  I use this near the end of my shower.  It gets rid of any rough skin and keeps your heels soft.

Body Scrub
Body scrubs are essential for sloughing off dead skin & leaving your skin softer & smoother.  There are a lot of great ones out there & you can even make your own if you're feeling ambitious.  I am currently using St. Ives Apricot Scrub, which I originally bought to use on my face.  I found it a little too harsh for a face scrub but perfect for a body scrub.  Gorgeous, soft scent as well!

Body Pouf
As I like to use liquid soap, these are a must have.  Not only do they lather up nicely, which extends the life of your soap, but they also help exfoliate the skin.  The synthetic mesh fabric helps keep bacteria from growing on your pouf but make sure to change them out about every two months. 

Other than the Body Shop soaps, you can get any of these products at your local drugstore.  If you don’t have a Body Shop nearby you can use any glycerin type soap in the same way. 

Happy showers!


  1. Good suggestions! I love Body Shop products.

  2. I love Body Shop too..the smell of the store alone is enough to lure me in!

  3. I use the St.Ives Apricot Scrub as a body scrub too! Its more inexpensive than most body scrub and a good texture for the body (not so much for my face!) Thanks for this review, I will definitely be trying the St.Ives Oatmeal and Shea Butter body wash! I have bad luck with body washes, but this sounds great!

  4. I hope you like the St. Ives Shaylee, I use their lotion as well. Great combo!
