Bath on a Budget

The Innovative Nivea In-Shower Body Lotion

I’ve been using the innovative Nivea In-Shower Body Lotion ($7.99) for the last week and a half and it is life changing. I should start off by saying I’m so terrible about applying body lotion after I shower. I’m one of those dry and dash girls so I’m always half way damp when I’m sliding into my clothes. I dislike the feeling of applying body lotion on wet skin so typically I reserve applying it until the evening. I also don’t like how some body creams make me feel sticky or tacky.

Nivea In-Shower Body Lotion saves me a step by giving me a way to apply my body lotion IN THE SHOWER!

Cool right?

In Love with The Body Shop Glazed Apple Bath Jelly

Body Shop Glazed Apple Bath Jelly

I always get “Ewww you take baths?” from many friends and even readers on here. For whatever reason people don’t think a bath gets you very clean, I’m inclined to agree. I never feel like I can wash my hair quite right in a bath! That’s what showers are for!

Baths though, baths are MADE for relaxing. I do indeed take and enjoy baths but typically they aren’t to get clean it’s more of a relaxation treat for me. I take them when I have a bad migraine as the warm water really helps to ease a migraine, I take them on a cold Winter’s night to warm up, and I like taking them after work to just ease the stress of the day away.

To get clean? Not so much! To relax? Hells yes.

That’s why products like The Body Shop Glazed Apple Bath Jelly is totally a treat for my relaxing Holiday baths because lord knows after a busy, stressful day of shopping you need a bath to just soak away the woe of spending all that money on gifts for the fam and friends on your list ha….

And I’m positive The Body Shop Glazed Apple Bath Jelly takes a note from dear Aunt Bethany’s Jello Mold…

Take a look!


Fortune Cookie Soap Steam Me Up Scotty Review

Fortune Cookie Soap Steam Me Up Scotty

I recently got a Fortune Cookie Soap Steam Me Up Scotty Shower Fizzy in the Fortune Cookie Soap Old Fashioned Family Christmas Soap Box and decided to give it a whirl. I should start by saying I take showers to get clean and baths to relax.

People always tell, “Why do you Lush so much? I never feel clean after taking a bath! I can’t use Lush products!” I don’t use Lush Bubble Bars, Bath Bombs, etc to get clean because like many of you taking a bath feels a little primitive to me. A shower is my preference like most everyone else. However, I still LOVE my Lush! And I use it often but not because I want to take a bath to get clean…it’s more about taking a late night bath to relax and unwind after a long day. You’d never catch me taking a bubble bath before work in the morning, ain’t nobody got time for that.

None the less for those who aren’t really “into” baths you can still enjoy a bath bomb or bath fizzy with Fortune Cookie Soap Steam Me Up Scotty! Because it’s a bath fizzy for your SHOWER!
