What’s in my shower?

Following on from the sneak peek into my bathroom cabinet post I thought I’d show you what is going on in my shower (beauty related anyway!). I do have quite a few products on the go at the moment as I tend to use different products depending on my mood that day.

Empties: January 2013

January 2012

Here are the products that I’ve came to the end of using this month.

Elemis Lime Blossom Cleanser & Lavender Toner – A long term staple of my cleansing routine this cleanser and toner is for combination skin and smells delicious.

Philosophy Candy Cane Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath – This wash is fresh and sweet and really does smell like candy canes. I used this over the Christmas season to get me in the festive mood.

Liz Earle Superskin Concentrate – I love this oil and always make sure I’m using it every night during the winter to add extra nourishment to my skin.

Perricone MD Advanced Face Firming Activator – This serum helps brighten this skin and smooth it. It is expensive but the jar last me ages and the texture was lovely and light.

Decleor Lip Balm – I always have a few lip balms on the go and have had this one for ages. It is nice and moisturising on dry lips without being sticky or glossy.

Samples: January 2013

I end up with so many sample sizes of products and being a bit of a beauty junkie I always like to try them out so I don’t miss out on a new grooming must have. Here are the samples I’m using this month.

Samples January 2013L’Occitane Precious Cream – I have been using L’Occitane bath and body products for years but this is the 1st face product I’ve ever tried. It is a rich moisturising cream that smells nice and I’ve been impressed with this sample.

Benefit That Gal – Being a guy I was a bit unsure about trying this primer as it has a slight pink tint to it but the pink is very subtle so it will just give the skin a slight lift rather than a pink shimmer.

Liz Earle Skin Repair Moisturiser Dry/ Sensitive – This is a rich cream that is a little too heavy for me to use during the day. I read in the Beauty Bible that it works well as a neck cream so I’ve been using it on my neck at night.

Nude Pro Genius Treatment Oil – A woody scented face oil with omega 3,6,7 & 9 that I use at night before moisturising. It added extra moisture to my skin and smelled lovely.

Acqua di Parma Cologne – This fragrance is a true classic and will leave you smelling citrusy and fresh.

Elemis Rehydrating Ginseng Toner – I’ve been using this at night during this cold spell to add extra hydration.

A Close Shave With Elemis

Elemis Men's

I ordered this shave collection from Elemis on wait list from QVC before Christmas. I thought QVC might not be able to get the new stock in so I was extra excited when it arrived this week!

The set includes:

  • Deep Cleansing Facial Wash
  • Ice-Cool Foaming Shave Gel
  • Daily Moisture Boost
  • Sharp Shower Body Wash

It all comes in a nice shaving bag that is similar to some that I’ve seen Prada do.

I have had all the products in this collection before but because it has been a long time since I last tried them I will wait till I use them again before giving a proper review, which won’t be long as I’ve almost finished my current shaving cream!

The Skin Nourishing Shower Cream from Elemis is part of their Sp@Home range and promises to be free from parabens, mineral oils, silicones and other skin nasties. The shower cream is the sister product to the iconic Skin Nourishing Milk Bath but can this shower cream deliver the same results?

Beating the Winter Skin Blues

The winter always drys my skin out. The last 3 years in particular my skin has suffered from the cold weather outside and central heating inside. To combat this I always make sure I’m prepared to add a few power packed products into my routine to add comfort to my skin.


At night I’ve added the Elemis SOS cream and Liz Earle’s Superskin moisturiser to my routine. Both of these products add protection and moisture to dry and sensitive skin. The SOS cream is also a good skin balancer for any skin that is out of sorts so will tackle redness and any spots too.

Depending on how my skin is feeling I either use the products on alternative nights or I mix them together as a power packed bespoke balancing moisture treat for my skin. I always apply them over a facial oil for the ultimate protection for my skin.

Bathing Treat : Elemis Quiet Mind Bath Elixir

The Elemis Quiet Mind Bath Elixir has become, over the last few months, my favourite bubble bath. This bathing treat is a refreshing change from the traditional lavender based relaxing bath products and has a much more refreshing aroma of lemon and eucalyptus  that clears my head and eases the body after sports. Perfect to see you through the new year detox.
