My Bath-time Routine!

Being a HUGE bath lover, I've developed quite the routine when entering the bubble kingdom. So I thought I'd share with you the products I use every time I have a bath! I treat bath-time as my relaxtion time, it's a very calming adventure!

Sugar Crush Body Wash // Soap & Glory - £6.50
So after getting undressed (ooh cheeky!) and getting into a bath full of bubbles, the first thing I do is wash everywhere with Soap & Glory's Sugar Crush Body Wash. This stuff is fantastic. It's advertised as smelling like "Sweet Lime" however, I think it smells more like drumsticks (you know, those little Pink and White chew lollies?) - the one thing I adore about this stuff is (well obviously it smells brilliant and cleans me) but it also has a push down top, which means I don't have to faff around with trying to take lids off with wet hands (which can become quite the challenge!).  

Ocean Salt Facial Scrub // Lush - £7.25 - £13.25
After doing all of the body washing, and leg shaving (yawn) I move onto my face! Cleaning my face is one of my favourite things in my bath-time routine! I go between two products, the first being Lush's Ocean Salt facial scrub! This stuff isn't cheap but it seems to go quite a long way as I have had this stuff for a couple of months, my brother bought it for me - so it's not something I consciously went out to buy. HOWEVER, this stuff is great! It smells, well... it smells like the cross between oceans and boys (the nice aftershave they wear, not smelly armpits!) This stuff has a LOT of sea salt in it, which really does help get any dry/dead skin off your face. I don't use this every time I have a bath because I find it can be quite drying, however I do enjoy it very much!

Tea Tree Squeaky-Clean Scrub // The Body Shop - £6.50
This is by FAR the best product I have ever bought from The Body Shop, it's the Tea Tree Squeaky-Clean Scrub! As you can see from the photograph, I need to buy some more as soon as possible - it's nearly running out! I rarely get through bottles of anything very fast (except hair conditioner) so I know that this is a great product. It smells... AMAZING. It's extremely refreshing after you've washed this stuff off of your face, I hold this stuff responsible for keep my face clear of spots 90% of the time. I have nothing negative to say about this product at all! 
Miracle Moist Shampoo // Aussie - 6.50 & Argan Oil Conditioner // £1.00
So ever since damaging the CRAP out of my hair from bleaching/dying it (never again, folks!) I've had to treat my hair with a lot of tender love and care to keep it looking in healthy condition. Firstly I'm going to talk about Aussie's Miracle Moist Shampoo (I hate the word moist *shudder*) - this shampoo is Australian and is aimed at people with damaged/dry/unhappy hair, like mine. It's made from macadamia nut oil and certainly has been keeping my hair happy. I can't quite explain how this stuff smells, but I can definitely tell you that it's a WONDERFUL scent - I'm currently sniffing it to try and explain but I can't quite put my finger on it. It's just... very nice. If you ever see this stuff, definitely give it a sniff you won't regret it.

Secondly we come onto my favourite hair conditioner - I refuse to use anything else after I found this beauty. The best thing about this is the price at £1, they sell this in SO many shops - I don't even know who makes it unless "Argan Oil" is the brand? Anyway, this again has a FANTASTIC SCENT (are you surprised?) and it certainly keeps my hair very soft. This stuff is so cheap I buy several bottles at a time, and I'm extremely generous with it when I use it in my hair. I let it sit a while so my hair soaks up all of the good things! Wow, my technical words are very good today. (I have found this stuff in poundland, B&M, bodycare, and various highstreet hair care shops!)

Peach Body Butter - The Body Shop - £13.00
After soaking in the bubble kingdom for a while, I get out and dry myself off and then get out my Body Shop Peach Body Butter! I don't need to explain what this smells like, just imagine the ripest peach you could find - a really juicy one! I rub this everywhere to make my skin feel soft, and smell edible - yum yum!

Absolute Oil // Alfaparf Milano - £22.00

I leave my hair to dry naturally 90% of the time, unless I'm in a rush to go out. I got this Absolute Oil from my hairdressers after I damaged my hair. I've had it since November 2013 and as you can see I have LOADS left, as you only need to use 2 pea size amounts to run through your hair with your hands. It smells like fresh pears and really does keep your hair healthy, with it's outstanding detangling and conditioning properties, this oil guarantees instantly tangle-free and soft, glossy hair that is as light as silk.

After my bath-time routine, I usually put on some comfy clothes and get on with things that I need to do, except now I feel a lot more relaxed and smell beautiful!

Let me know in the comments your opinions on any of these products if you have used them yourself!



  1. Wow that's a lot of products!! After you saying you love the tea tree scrub , I might try it ... your recommendations are always good Cherry. And what another brilliant blog post, I absolutely love your blog , I also think your an inspiration, Thank you for being you Cherry:)

  2. Have just found the Argan Oil range and I am loving the hair mask, you might want to check that out also :)

  3. I love argon oil - the one you mentioned for conditioner. I'm still unsure of the brand because I have found other brands that advertise products as "argon oil" for my hair, but I cannot find a brand name on the conditioner.

  4. I love baths! unfortunately I don't have one at my house so whenever I visit my parents or older sister I know it's time to dive into the bubble kingdom! I haven't tried any of these products bar the argan oil but I'm super-keen to get into that Lush sea-salt scrub & give it a go. :)

    Also, argan oil is amazing for the hair, but have you tried coconut oil? Leaving it in overnight works wonders!
