I wish I were someone that awoke each morning bright eyed and bushy tailed. I’d love to be one of those people. They always seem so put together. Instead I wake up feeling like I’ve been left in the desert for days, deprived of water and then kicked in the head for good measure. Perhaps that’s a slight exaggeration, but at any rate mornings are not a good time for me. So anything that helps me emerge from groggy state is much appreciated. I’m happy to say that I’ve found three brilliant products for the shower that help the revival process along.
The Body Shop Ginger Scalp Care Shampoo
For starters this shampoo gives hair a deep clean and leaves you with lots of volume at the root. It also, more importantly (if we’re getting real up in here), smells flippin’ amazing! It’s the perfect pick me up for me first thing in the morning because it has such an awesome, tangy gingery smell. It’s like giving your hair a ginger beer bath. Delicious and refreshing! Plus the gingery scent hangs around very nicely after you wash the product out so you can continue getting wafts and thinking to yourself “dang gurl, you so fresh.”
The Body Shop Tea Tree Cool and Creamy Wash
Done with the hair, now it’s time to wake up the jowls. I normally go for an ultra gentle and soothing cleanser, but sometimes when I want a really fresh start I’ll grab the Tea Tree Cool and Creamy Wash. Tea tree is one of those ingredients that makes me feel so satisfyingly clean. Between the smell and that fact that it’s a disinfectant, it just gets the job done. This cleanser also contains menthol which gives your skin that awesome cooling sensation.
Br. Bronner’s Magic Soap in Peppermint
I couldn’t not mention this guy. I love the smell of peppermint. I will go for anything peppermint scented or flavoured– drinks, baked goods, lip balms… other things with peppermint… drawing a blank here… Anyways, what with my love of peppermint, you can imagine how much I enjoy lathering up my loofah with this body wash and having a good ol’ scrub. It lathers fabulously and it has a lovely pure peppermint smell – not at all sweet.
