Shower goodies 🌼

@glossier Milky Jelly is pretty much everywhere in my house. One in my shower, one by my sink, samples spread through out the house. It's nice having that simple cleanser that does what you need it to that you can always fall back on.
@plant.apothecary is currently on rounds in my shower atm. This scent in Get Happy is the perfect pick me up in the mornings with it's refreshing and uplifting scent Geranium and Peppermint.
I always need a good exfoliant in my showers, it just makes me feel extra clean and also helps smooth out my skin and have rotated this one by @meantsimply in and out of my shower and I really do enjoy this. My favorite part is that the oils used in this stay on your body enough to soak into your skin to help with the softness of your skin.
Just for an added bonus I recently joined in with the @my.billie love and I really love the design of this razor. Super smooth shaved but also enjoy the convenience of the wall magnet to hang up your razor. It's also in this super adorable light blue color.

Introducing: your new desert-island beauty essential. The Absolute Balm multi-tasker by @meantsimply is that one product that just seems to do it all. Use it for your body, face, hair, nails, and even on your lips. Available now for purchase in the bath & body shop! Let's go!

My shower necessity when travel.. @meantsimply made everything a lot easier! Though I still bring some face cleanser and gazillion of skincare products to review, these are the products that stay in the shower during my trip
🚿
I don’t have to bring any shower necessity for my kids cause I can share these with them. They are gentle on skin yet cleanse well and multi functional (I even use The Do-All Wash as my facial cleanser). I’m just afraid these two bottles will be finish in two months trip since I’m sharing them with my kids 😅
🚿
I’ve used @frank_bod Original Coffee Body Scrub and decided to get this Shimmer version in smaller size for my trip. It leaves my skin soft and smooth without feeling greasy. Since it’s shimmer version, it leaves a very subtle glitter particles on my skin but it doesn’t transfer on clothes and you can hardly see it if you don’t pay attention to your skin. Honestly, I prefer the Original version better cause the granules are bigger and did the job better IMO but I don’t mind this one.

What’s your shower necessity? Share it in the comments. Do you like multitasking products or you prefer a product that specialize in one thing?

I have been wanting to try @meantsimply products for the longest time. Last week, I finally took the advantage of 20% discount and bought them!
.
I plan to bring them with me for my upcoming trip but somehow the tracking wasn’t updating after couple days of shipping, I got anxious so I emailed them. I want to thank Lindsay, the founder of @meantsimply , who was very nice and kind to update me with my order. And her replies were very fast as well (I usually got her replies in less than an hour). She also told me that these are safe to use for kids, which is perfect! I hate to pack a lot of shower essentials during vacation.
.
The Do-All Wash is supposed to cleanse your hair, body and even face. Honestly, I was a bit skeptical of using it on my face but after reading the ingredients, there’s no SLS or any harmful ingredients so I use it from my head to toe. It is very delightful, it cleanses my hair, body and face well without stripping my skin barrier and did I mention that it smells so good and refreshing? The citrusy scent smells so fresh and summery!
.
The Do-All Conditioner is supposed to help condition your hair while also work as body and face shaving cream. I don’t shave (I use epilator) so this works as a conditioner for me and it has the same scent as The Do-All Wash! It made my hair feels silky and smooth~
.
The Absolute Balm is a hydrating oil serum for your face, body and hair. It’s like petroleum jelly but this smells and feels way better. If it gets too hot, it could come out as melting oil otherwise it would come out as balmy texture. I didn’t use this on my face cause I think it’s a bit too thick for my face but I used it on my hair and body. Though the weather gets warmer, my body is very dry and could get flakey. I applied this all over my legs, though it feels a bit heavy at first, it actually absorbs nicely and made my legs feel so smooth and soft without being greasy or tacky! I’m curious to see how it would perform in humid country though~ I worked as lip balm and hand cream too!
.
Though I’ve only been using it for couple times, I like it and can’t wait to use them for my upcoming trip!

Countdown to vacay. These are my plane essentials👆🏻and some simple advice👇🏻
1. You can never have enough moisturizer. Face lotion, lip balm, eye cream...the works!
2. Airplanes are freaking filthy so bring some anti-bacterial wipes (not shown buying today😬).
3. Drink tons and tons of water (small cups provided during food service are not nearly enough)

I am really excited to see what everyone picks for day 5 of the #springflingchallenge “THROWBACK”⠀

You are probably thinking what in the H E double 🏒🏒 does soap have to do with throwback but here goes. ⠀

I’m using throwback as a memory and the funny things that stay with us. ⠀

Picture it... California in the early 80’s and I’m a young girl spending time at her grandparents house. The guest bathroom has shag carpet, velvet floral wallpaper, and a foam toilet seat that deflates when you sit on it. ⠀

On a pretty little tray on the counter there is sea shell shaped soaps that I wasnt allowed to use because they were for fancy decoration. ⠀

I picked this up from my grandmother as I too have fancy soaps in the guest bathroom as well as towels that I’m constantly reminding the littles not to use. ⠀

Why? I have no clue 🤷🏼‍♀️ BUT I have an appreciation for beautifully made soaps and they always make me think of my Grammy. ⠀

I FINALLY finished my review of the best nontoxic shampoos! (Linked up in stories and bio)
_________
🌱You guys know I’m a HUGE advocate for nontoxic shampoos; they were the saving grace that helped me rebound from a receding hairline and hairloss. Harsh chemical surfactants capable of causing premature follicle breakage/hair loss in traditional shampoos should be avoided at all costs! Don’t take your hair for granted like I did and torture your strands with Costco shampoo...not to mention you’ll want to avoid endocrine disrupting parabens. .
.🌱But while I thought we’d have to grin and suffer through limp, inadequate foaming nontoxic shampoos forever (I’m looking at you Rahua Shampoo), I was surprised to find while testing products for this blog post how far nontoxic shampoos have come in just the last year! Many are using coconut and corn derived surfactants that are safe, nontoxic and capable of offering a luxurious lather! Many also incorporate antiseptic essential oils (rosemary, ylang ylang, thyme) to nourish irritated scalps.
.
.👩🏻‍💻Check out the blog post linked up in my bio and stories and lmk if you’ve tried any of these. Would love to hear your thoughts!✨

This fair weather California girl is heading east to NYC for a long weekend of work, friends, and over indulgence. I wish I could take the sunshine with me ☀️🌈 Packing up my bathroom essentials is the easiest thing to do thanks to @meantsimply multi functioning products 💆🏼‍♀️💦(Lindsay is in Australia on her own vaca, say Hi 👋🏼 I’ll catch you next time!)


A little exfoliation and glow thanks to @yunibeautybrand

💫
Out of all my deodorants I’m taking @meowmeowtweet Lavender And Bergamot.🐥💜I’ve found that the pretty light scent blends well with my favorite perfumes and I can count on it never failing. How cute is that travel size? 🧚🏼‍♀️


Have you guys tried @my.billie yet? It’s a razor subscription service but they also have a body care line that has some really good products in it. ✨

Let’s examine my #shelfie a bit closer, shall we? Still one of my favorite skincare brands is @tatcha. The rice enzyme powder being the standout. (if of course, I was forced to choose just one) It’s gentle enough use in the morning pre-makeup, to get a perfect canvas free of texture. ✨ Also, new to the shelf is @deciem The Ordinary. Frankly, I can’t get enough of these accessibly priced products . The stand out being the Lactic acid and AHA 30% peel. (I love a good acid) 💫 One of the best hydrating sprays Ive tried to date is Skin Dew from @farmacybeauty. ✨ And I just love @meantsimply’s The Absolute Balm to use on everything from dry skin to taming hair fly always. What is missing from my shelf that You think I must try? #skincarecommunity#instaskin#intothegloss#itgtopshelfie#meantsimply#skincareshelfie#byrdiebeauty#instaskincare#skincarefavorites#skincareroutine#skincareobsessed#skincareregimen

The Set is filled with the amazing multitasking products I’ve been talking about this week. #girlcantstoptalking 🤳🏼⠀
Today we are talking about the product that was my gateway into Meant and how it changed the way I travel with my family. The Do-All Wash is literally the do everything wash. I tossed this in my travel bag last summer and put its multitasking ways to the test. In the wash I had a shampoo, body wash, and a face cleanser for the whole family. A shampoo the kids and I can both use? Yes! As with everything Meant it’s free of the nasties and filled with the good stuff. My pricey color treated hair was safe 💁🏼‍♀️ #nonaturalblondehere

How is everyone’s Monday so far? I’m kicking ass and taking names getting ahead of my week #monslay 💪🏼 ⠀

Let’s talk simplifying during the holidays... we seem to travel all over the state in December visiting family and we hate to hurt our parents feelings but the travel is exhausting and takes away from our own traditions we do. How do you handle travel during the holidays and deciding where to spend them? ⠀

First item in the shower set from @meantsimply I want to talk about is The Wonder Polish. ⠀

What does it smell like? Pure deliciousness that wakes you right up! Coffee, Citrus, and Bergamot explode your senses for the ultimate exfoliating experience. ☕️🍊☕️🍊💦⠀

Made with all the good stuff and no nasties The Wonder Polish gently cleanses and moisturizes all while promoting healing, toning, and firming. #yesplease 🙋🏼‍♀️ ⠀
