What's In My Shower?

I thought I'd enlighten you all on what (and whom) currently reside in my shower. You might faint from the dorkiness as soon as you see the last item, so you have been warned. I'm known to possess geeky functional items, such as a Doctor Who TARDIS cookie jar, and a Lion King mug amongst other things. And I want a pair of Obi Wan lightsaber chopsticks.

Before I deviate from the purpose of this post even further, let's get down to business, bro.

First up are my shampoo and conditioner. I am currently using Organic Care Normal Balance Shampoo and Conditioner. I find that it does the job of cleaning and conditioning my hair really well, but I think it might be time for a change as soon as I finish these bottles. After almost five years of devotedly sticking with this brand, I think my hair is a little too used to these products, and I'm now a limpy frizzapalooza. I'm not joking, I have a semi-permanent halo of flyway, impossible-to-control, frizz right on top of my droopy hair that may, or may not, have as equally as frizzy ends. No, they're not split ends, I just had my hair trimmed!

Nonetheless, I really love Nature's Organics, because they're super cheap, great for sensitive skin, organic, vegan, environmentally friendly with recycled plastic bottles, made with sustainable palm oil and so many more great things. I love this shampoo and conditioner because it is so gentle, not overly foamy, and makes my hair feel great and not at all squeaky, like some shampoos are wont to do. It makes me sad to that I have to find a new shampoo and conditioner. Organic Care, I still love you! My brushes still love you too!

Moving onto the body, I don't use much else other than this body wash, also from Organic Care, at the risk of sounding like a broken record. It came in a set with the shampoo and conditioner at Costco, and when I found out that Original Source was not cruelty-free, I made an instantaneous decision to replace it with this one as soon as my bottle finished. I really like this one, because like the other two products I spoke about, this is not overly foamy, and feels quite moisturising and gentle on my skin. It has a floral scent that I don't mind, but I still miss the strong pepperminty aroma of my last body wash, because peppermint, duh. I wonder what Sean would say if I dumped half a bottle of peppermint extract into the body wash...

"No! Absolutely not! The bathroom will smell like toothpaste!" That's probably what he would say.

Buuuuuuuut... but peppermint?

So, I'm probably going to be castrated by the entire world for not even exfoliating my body. I honestly don't think it's a good idea for me to spend more time in the bathroom than necessary. I have a habit of just standing under the shower head for over ten minutes, swaying from side to side, before reminding myself that I'm in the shower to get clean, not to have a vertical bath. I can't help it when a piping hot shower is my happy place.

So, what is this last thing that I have in my shower with me? Look! It's a puff! It's a squirt toy! It's a Stormtrooper!

I've got a Stormtrooper squirt toy with a shower puff attached! Isn't he the cutest shower buddy you've ever seen?! I have to thank my housemate gifting this little piece of shower fun to me, and Sean for finding it in the first place. I can't use it to squirt water in the shower, but you know what? I love Stormtroopers, and Vader forbid anyone stops him from keeping me company in my happy place. Get your heads out of the gutter please!



  1. I love that Stormtrooper shower puff! :) This is a lovely post - thanks for sharing! xx

    1. I love stormtroopers. I want to take a bath just so I can play with him but I need to respect the water restrictions book

      Thanks for commenting! :)

  2. Ohmygosh a Stormtrooper puff! Hmm... I always try to stick to natural products for facial skin care as well as the food I eat but I've never really thought about shampoo and conditioner. I might have to do a little bit of research and see where I can find the stuff you've mentioned or some other similar ones!

    1. I love stormtroopers 😍

      You can get the shampoo and conditioner for $3-4 a pop at Woolworths and Coles. They also do household products. There are some similar brands though not as cheap, such as EcoStore. I'm holding out for Priceline's 40% sale so I can get their volumising shampoo and conditioner. They're usually $10 a bottle.

  3. Well now I need to get myself one of these. I think I'd lean for an R2D2 or BB8 one though.
    Also, lovely to meet you Stephanie! :) Glad to have connected on Twitter!!

    1. I love BB8! Isn't he the cutest thing ever? I haven't found an R2D2 or BB8 puff yet, though saw Yoda (not good) and Darth Vader, which I almost bought. I've found an R2D2 bubble bath bottle, so cute! I wasn't too sure if it would be cruelty-free/vegan so I skipped it.

      Lovely to meet you too, Sofia :) Thanks for connecting with me on Twitter!
