Guest Starring in the Muse’s Shower

Guest Starring

Products come and products go in and out of my shower. It’s like a revolving door in there as I’m constantly changing up what I’m using from day to day.

At the moment the following products are making a guest starring appearance in my shower (all contents in my shower stall are subject to change without notice).

  • Aquafresh Foaming Toothpaste

I’m normally really super duper picky about toothpaste but I recently fell hard for this! First off I adore the pump packaging and secondly I really dig how it goes from a gel to a mouth full of foam as you brush! Loves it!

This stuff is cheap plus it feels so great on my face! I like loading up my L’Oreal Scrublet with it and going to down on my face. It makes my skin feel squeaky clean after use and lathers like a dream while feeling really cooling on.

OMG if you seriously miss MAC Volcanic Ash here’s a perfect dupe. I don’t store this in my shower but I do USE it on my shower since anywhere else creates a mega mess. The formula completely refreshes my dead, tired skin and makes me glow!

I’ve been retesting this brush for the past few months and I’m kinda leaning towards saying I actually love it as my original review was less than stellar.

These are the worst! They load my hair down with silicones in such a fierce way but I can’t stop sniffing my hair after I’ve used them as I have a few in Lush Dupe fragrances that I can’t not use like Snowcake, Candy Fluff, and Snow Fairy! Who doesn’t want Snow Fairy scented hair?

  • Lush Doctor Peppermint Shampoo Bar

I thank the baby jebus every night that Lush Retro has returned Doctor Peppermint to the scene. It’s my favorite shampoo bar because it smells so minty fresh! Gorg!

  • Lush Lime Smoothie

This is gorgeous stuff! It smells lovely and the formula is so creamy. It lathers up like a dream and can be used to cleanse or shave with. It rarely leaves my shower.

Lush originally introduced this shower as an LE run but has since brought it back. Thank GOD! It smells incredible, you needs it!

MAC should have their head examined for making this an LE item. It’s possibly the best facial scrub I’ve ever used.

Fav Philosophy Shower Gel of the moment! Loves it!

I’ve been using a Scuba Toothbrush for over 15 years. My best friend dubs it the hairbrush for your teeth because it’s so large but I don’t care I love it. Totally a fabulous toothbrush and my dentist thinks so too!

I really love the scent of this stuff plus it’s a nice shower facial scrub!

  • Lush I Love Juicy

IDEAL shampoo for those seeking a silicone-free existence. Makes everyday a good hair day.

  • Lush Retread

Lush’s thickest, creamiest conditioner!

What sort of goodies are Guest Starring in your shower at the moment?

Beauty on a Budget: Inexpensive, Affordable, Cheap Tinted Moisturizers Under $15

Cheap TM

Tis about that time kids! Summer is coming, very slowly, but it is coming. As Summer approaches I tend to haul out lighter coverage and look out for anything that will make me look flawless but isn’t incredibly heavy. Of course tinted moisturizers are a great way to even out your skin tone, make you look flawless, plus most include some sort of SPF for sun protection.

BUT….

They aren’t always cheap! Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer is a shocking $42. I’ve always found it a little crazy that tinted moisturizer costs so much and in some cases more than run of the mill foundation.

Anyway, here’s some affordable, cheaper tinted moisturizers to keep your beauty budget in shape this season so at least you’ll have some left over cash for a bikini after purchasing your TM.

Wants It: Bourjois Duo Effet Sculpteur

Bourjois Duo Effet Sculpteur 1

I’ve always been a sucker for Bourjois Paris blush. I mean what’s not to like? They are baked, come in wee little compacts, and have a really nice variety of shades.

Bourjois Paris Japan gets a little creative with the blush line and releases Bourjois Duo Effet Sculpteur shortly.

Check it!
