Bathroom products i couldn't live without

Earlier i was thinking about the products that i love and would find it hard to live without. Especially as i see more and more products being discontinued.

I have compiled a list of 5 bathroom / beauty products that i really love and would find it hard to deal with if they suddenly disappeared from the shelves.

Top of my list would have to be 1) Aussie Mega Shampoo

It leaves my hair shiny, managable and smelling gorgeous. I have recently tried the miracle moist shampoo as the Mega one was sold out and i love that too. I started using Aussie shampoo through recommendation and the fact several hairdressers mentioned what they class as bad shampoo brands that actually coat your hair which is why it can make your hair look glossy for the short term but it can and frequently ends up giving you dandruff and very dry hair.

The next item on my list would be 2) Sanex Dermo-Sensitive Shower Gel

This is something i only discovered recently and with two children with eczema i always opt for sensitive shower gels. This shower gel has helped to hydrate their skin and has been one of the few shower gels not to cause an adverse reaction so it's staying firmly on my shopping list in the future.

Next we come to something the females in my family have used for years 3) Nivea Creme

The females in my family generally look much younger than they are and i'm sure it has something to do with the fact they use Nivea Creme. It's a perfect moisturiser and especially good for those with dry skin. I always remember my nan rubbing it into her skin each morning and evening and the smell of it nowadays is quite comforting and reminds me of her.

The next item is what i use to cover my panda eyes. 4) Max Factor Second Skin Foundation
Unfortunatly i have horrible dark circles under my eyes, not through lack of sleep but more to do with immune problems. It took me quite a long time to find something that would cover them properly and i wear minimal make up on a day to day basis anyway and i cannot stand caked on foundation. Max Factor Second skin covers it just right and leaves no marks or tell tale signs of it even being there. It blends in really nicely with my skin yet does the job of covering my panda eyes perfectly.

 The final item would have to come back to the Vaseline which i have blogged about previously.
5) Vaseline Lip Therapy Cocoa

It's handy handbag sized, perfect for softening dry lips,making your lipstick stand out more or the many other uses that Vaseline has. I am pretty sure i have become addicted to this little product that goes amazingly far considering its size!

Well that's the products i wouldn't like to be without. What about you? Do you have products that you love and couldn't see yourself parting with?


  1. What a brilliant idea for a blog :)

    I've never tried Aussie shampoo. I'm just about at the stage where I need to try baby shampoo as everything else makes my extremely dry/sensitive scalp weep.

  2. Thanks! :) Aussie is a fab shampoo, i totally recommend you giving it a try, my scalp is quite sensitive or should i say it was before i found the wonder that is "Aussie" :)
