What's in my Shower?

I'll start by saying I am almost completely satisfied with my shower routine. I adore all the products except the shampoo I'm using. I'll get back to that, first, here is what I keep in the shower. 

1. Giovanni Root 66 Max Volume Shampoo - This has a few ingredients I'm not thrilled with but the true reason I'm not happy with it is I find it leaves a residue in my hair and my hair gets oilier quicker then with other shampoos. I don't use conditioner as I have very fine and oily hair, after the shower I do put a drop of argan oil in my ends. I am still looking for the right shampoo/conditioner combo to balance my hair.

2.  Rocky Mountain Soap Company Foaming Wash in Vanilla Coconut - This is heavenly! The foaming pump provides plenty of lather that cleanses without being at all drying. The scent cannot be beat, a sweet vanilla coconut cupcake!

3. Rocky Mountain Soap Company Peppermint Shave Bar - Don't be mistaken, this is nothing like shaving with soap! It lathers into this rich cream and provides a close shave, doesn't clog your razor and smells super refreshing. It is so moisturizing that if you are in a time crunch you can even get away without applying lotion after you shave. A new favourite of mine!

4. Schick Quattro for Women Trim Style - For years I used a Venus razor thinking it was the best one, but recently switched to Schick Quattro and not only are the blades cheaper they provide a way smoother shave.

5. Honey Sugar Olive Oil Face Scrub - I use my homemade scrub whenever my face is feeling a little bumpy or dry. The olive oil and sugar combo really smooth things out and the honey soothes.

6. Vals Veggie Soap - I use this to wash my face, especially after I use the scrub, I like to let the oil soak into my face during my shower then wash off the excess at the end. 

7. Sephora Precision Pore Cleansing Pad - This soft rubbery pad is great for massaging cleanser into the skin.

Wishlist Wednesday

A few of the items I've been lusting after online this week. 
Pure Anada Mascara. Pure Anada is a Canadian brand dedicated to creating safe and effective products. I've been eying up the brand for a while and am hoping to find some in store but if not I'll be ordering online soon.

Vapour Organic Beauty Illusionist Concealer. I love my powder mineral foundation but with the dry winter I'm looking to switch to just a creamy concealer where I need it. 

Face and Eye Cream, Extra Sensitive

Honey Girl Organics Face and Eye Creme Extra Sensitive. I've been looking for an eye cream with simple ingredients, this may be the one!
