'What's In Your Bath/Shower?' Tag

At last, a tag I've never heard of before! The gorgeous Leslie from Bravenezz tagged me to do this post lightyears ago but it's taken me a long time to get around to it, so apologies Leslie!

When I moved into my new house last year, I was excited to try out the bath here because it's a lot longer than your average tub and I assumed that would be a good thing. Not at all. When my feet can't touch the bottom end of the bath, I feel like I'm drowning... not great. So I recently started showering instead and now I couldn't go back to baths, however much I miss Lush bath bombs.
As you'll notice in these photos, the sides of my bath aren't built for balancing a tonne of products, so if you're seeing the same corner of my bath over and over, it's because I've had to move products around, they're usually just dangling around the bathroom in other nooks and crannies.

Australian Bodycare Tea Tree Oil Skin Wash
One of  my mum's better QVC investments, this really makes my skin feel refreshed afterwards, but not so much my nose, as I'm not greatly keen on the tea tree smell. Does anyone else find it a little offensive, or am I just picky?
Alberto Balsam Coconut And Lychee Shampoo
I love coconut scents. I don't care if this doesn't do the greatest job for my hair, I was broke before Christmas and needed new shampoo, so this was one of those Poundland purchases to tide me by until my student loan comes through.
Herbal Essences Ignite My Colour Conditioner
Another Poundland bargain, it doesn't do much for my hair but it's good enough until I have a few more coins rattling around in my pocket.

Lush Snow Fairy Shower Gel
I'm going to be inconsolable when I finish this bottle, but it's kept me going for a good two months already!
John Frieda Frizz-Ease Dream Curls Conditioner
Well, it eases my frizz, but no dream curls. Sorry John Frieda.
Elemis Melting Cleansing Gel
I want to sing the praises of this because it costs so much, but in reality, I don't actually feel much of a difference from it.

Alberto Balsam Sun Kissed Raspberry Shampoo
Another Poundland purchase, I love this brand purely for their heavenly scented products, some even smell as nice as Lush products, but don't get me wrong, they don't exactly feel like angels kissing my bonce.
Argan Oil Conditioner
Found this in a pound shop a while ago and thought I'd give it a try considering I'd yet to try any argan oil products, the jury's still out on this one as I haven't used it much.
Imperial Leather Hawaiian Spa Shower Cream
An impulse replacement for my Snow Fairy should it run out unexpectedly, and the smell on this is divine.
Aapri Blackhead Cleansing Scrub
I mentioned a few months ago that Aapri have some fantastic cleansing pillows, and yet since that post I've not been able to find them in any stores whatsoever, so I grabbed the first Aapri product I saw, this time in a pound shop, and yes, it does clear my blackheads, it just seems to break out my dry patches.

Lush Godmother Soap
Admittedly, I do regret this purchase a bit, because it was £6 odd for a rather small chunk, and it doesn't smell as amazing as Snow Fairy, but it's my closest equivalent til Christmas turns up again.
Lush Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub
I'm loving this and I've only used it twice! Although it breaks out my skin a little bit, I assume that's because I've used it a bit too vigorously and my skin's not used to being graced with a powerful scrub. 

Boots Colour Non-Permanent Hair Dye in Ebony Black
And one other thing I thought I'd mention here for anyone that's curious how I dye my naturally blonde locks to black without going bald. I won't go back to permanent dyes now I've discovered how well this works, and it's an absolute steal at £3.05!

So that's what's in my shower, but what's in yours?
