My Shower Routine



I am a very OCD person, and very particular about how I go about things. I like to eat my meal in a certain order, get dressed in a certain order, and so on. The same goes with my shower. I do things in exactly the same way each time. So instead of doing a what is in my shower post, I'm going to talk you through my whole routine. I can hear your excitement from here!



First up I wash my hair. I'm not too fussy about shampoo and conditioner, although I do have a slightly sensitive scalp, and have found Tres eme really makes it act up, as does Head & Shoulders, but apart from that, I just grab what ever is on offer. I'm currently using these ones from Naked, and though I've only used them once, I really like. 

Once a week I use my Paul Mitchell shampoo, and if my hair is looking slightly ginge then I will use this John Frieda one, as a second shampoo, I like to lather rinse repeat. I then leave the conditioner in whilst I wash and shave my under arms ( I fear that is too much information?) I then wash that out, and leave my Aussie Three Minute Miracle shampoo on for the rest of my shower.



I then go on to wash my face. I start with something exfoliating, at the moment it is this Garnier Exfo-Brush, which is alright, but not the best. I then take a face wash just to make sure my face is fully clean. On a Sunday I use this Microdermabrasion scrub from The Body Shop, which again is ok, but I wouldn't repurchase.

Then, if my legs need a shave, they will be done, but to be honest, I am soo lazy when it comes to shaving my legs. That is the only good thing about Summer being limited to a week, I can just let them grow haha! 



I then like to have a good exfoliate as I have really bobbly skin on my arms. I'm loving Soap & Glory's Flake Away scrub as I find it moisturising too. I then go over my arms with my sponge and some shower gel, again what ever is on offer.

I then rinse my hair off and I'm done!!!


I must say though, this is my 'thorough' shower. Not my everyday one, as I don't like to wash my hair everyday. If it isn't a hair washing day, I just have a quick wash, and clean my face etc over the sink (classy lady!)

Do you have a certain routine, or am I just crazy?

  5. You are not the only one, I have a very strict self imposed shower routine, and I think I'd have a bit of a melt down if I was forced to do it another way!

  6. I'm so glad it's normal to have s shower 'routine'. I always do the same things in the same order, although this post has reminded me I need to crack out the exfoliater a bit more, my bobbly skin never seems to disappear! xx

  12. Such a cute shower cap ;) Sounds like a very thorough routine that would leave you super refreshed and clean! I really need a good face exfoliator, it's a missing step in my routine. I'm with you about leg shaving, thankfully it's winter here haha :D
