What’s In LovelyMama’s Shower?

Pin It!

Someone asked me recently if I would publish a list of products I use.  I was hesitant because like you, I am a work in progress and I sometimes think people expect me to have it all figured out.  I don’t, but I try. So here it goes…

Giovanni Colorflage Beautifully Blonde Shampoo: Ok this stuff isn’t nirvana when it comes to ingredients, it contains phenoxythanol and a few other questionable items but its better than a paraben, phthalate ridden shampoo and it works really well.  I spend a fortune on my toxic highlights (hey I’m vain ok? I like being blond!) and the last thing I want to do is ruin my expensive ‘do with lame shampoo.  This claims to protect from fading and enhance blonds.  So far I’m just really happy with the cleaning power and the softness.

Giovanni Organics 50:50 Balanced Conditioner: Again, not perfect but better than many.  Leaves my hair smooth and soft and works just as well as traditional conditioners.  I also like John Masters Organics Lavender & Avocado Intensive Conditioner but right now I can’t afford a $22 conditioner.  I love it, and when I can swing a bottle I’ll get it but let’s face it, it’s a fortune.  Giovanni is available at Target and only costs about $7-9 bucks.  I can handle that.

Tilvee  Shea Butter Bap Soap (Face):  I have very sensitive skin and mild rosacea and a dermatologist told me to use anti-bacterial Cetaphil.  Well, I’m not comfortable with the ingredients (fragrance, PEG’s and Triclosan as the anti-bacterial agent) so I set out to find a better soap that had few ingredients.  Tilvee was the winner/  I use their Shea Butter bar for dry and sensitive skin and it works great.  Plus no gross ingredients.

BAR SOAP:  Ok this is where my obsession is and it’s evident by the bar soap in my shower. I’ll just list them all. Kiss My Face Sudz C-Weed Sweet Orange and Hemp – I love citrus scents and this doesn’t disappoint. Bubble & Bee Coconut Lime Soap – another awesome one. Dr Bronner’s Lavender Bar Soap – cheap, works and available at Target, Kroger, etc.  One type of soap I don’t have right now that I love is bar soap from LuSa Organics. I like the Ylang ylang and Lavender Goats Milk Soap but they have a ton of choices for every preference.  All natural and they’re purely awesome. I love their sugar scrubs and their lip balms too… actually I love everything they make and need to place an order soon. Worth every penny.  There are tons of natural soaps to pick from – this is the easiest thing to change when going natural.

Weleda Birch Body Scrub: I got this on a whim and reviewed it but it doesn’t get much play in my shower.  It smells nice and I think if I tried it with a loofah it might work better but then its a body wash not a scrub so it gets neglected.  Read my review here.

Rocky Mountain Soap Company Bamboo Body Scrub: I just reviewed this and really love it.  I’ve been using it often and I am buttery soft as a result. I love scrubs and although I don’t always have time to use them, when I do they have to be awesome.  This one is worth of my time for sure.

Next time I’ll give you the inside look at my after-shower body care and perhaps a peek into my make up bag!

    I like the John Masters products, too, but they are so darn expensive! I forego them on my hair and use them only on my face.

    You’re awesome! I feel the same way ALL THE TIME! I research and give recommendations every day, but please don’t ask me what I use – it’s not nearly as pristine as I’d like. Cost is a major barrier! We all do what we can.

    Thanks for reminding us that it’s okay to do your best and it’s okay to not be perfect. Guilt is no good. Hear that, Guilt? I’m done with you! Quit calling!

    I love Dr Bronner’s products. Not sure if you have looked into Dr Hauschka Skin Care. I found them by doing a search of chemical free/organice beauty products. they were listed as one of the few truely chemical free/organic beuaty product companies. they have a hollistic approach. I love their skincare products. I bit expensive but fabulous.
