Combination of blogging my bath and just talking about some of the products I like. Not bothering about the Friday thing because, waiting for the right spoons/time when spoons aren't better used elsewhere to occur on a Friday is just a little silly for me.
So, I've been using a range of products I think my favourites have to be between the solid shampoo bars in general and Glögg shower gel but there is a lot of other awesomeness.
So a bath I recently had. First half a bar of Bearded Lady Bubble Bar - it's relatively neutral but wonderful bubbles, really soft water and a lovely gentle fresh scent. Great for a relaxing soak and good read.
I'm currently experimenting with solid shampoo bars which are awesome in many, many ways. So I'll review these more distinctly:
For a good clean and reducing itching and dandruff it is undoubtably Soak and Float. The smell is a bit odd and does mix badly with other smells so I recommend using a pot for this one but the smell is nice a deep and less strong when actually applied. It's definitely effective and I actually like the smell when there isn't other's to clash with it. For clean and anti dandruff 8.5/10 (as I still feeling itchy afterwards sometimes), for smell 6/10.
For a gentle bar that's really good for unhappy hair and isn't too smelly and leaves the hair nice there's Ultimate Shine which is really lovely on the hair with a lovely gentle scent. 8/10
My run away favourite on smell and enjoyment has to be the oddly named New Shampoo which has quite a strong warming cinnamon smell which is lovely but doesn't last very well. It also seems to leave my scalp feeling really nice, virtually no itching and just generally nice. 9/10.
For conditioners I have had a bit more of an issue I've tried Jungle Solid Conditioner which it's nice be really hard to get enough on my hair and leave my hair very dry and frizzy I'm now starting using American Cream. We shall see.
Anyway, I often use Soak and float and the New Shampoo for both dandruff and then smell/itching and with conditioners that's lots of chances for other administrations. As previously mentioned I love Glögg shower gel, mulled wine shower gel, just wonderful, lots of smell and cleaning and feeling really soft afterwards. I may have got rather a lot of bottles. I can't think of much wrong with this 9.5/10.
For more careful cleaning of particular areas I'm using Figs and Leaves. It's pretty good, leaving skin soft and a nice smell but I'm failing to get really inspired about this so 6/10.
I'm using Almond and Coconut smoothie for areas which would like a more gentle wash. I have to admit to using this for my face as I need to do that in the bath as I can't generally stand and wash my face of the sink for which it's working wonderfully. Also areas prone to eczema. Really gentle and moisturising but it wouldn't go far used over the whole body I think. 8/10
Then out of the bath I use Dream Cream on areas that need it, it goes a reasonable way and feels lovely, we shall see have well it works for eczema. Something to review once I've used a while I think. Then Creme Anglaise which is ridiculously priced but lovely smell and really soft making. I shall just have to experiment with other vanilla products.
And finally lip dip which is just really rather awesome, wonderful taste and seems to keep lips moisturised
