I don’t know how it happened but it just did. Instead of being faithful to one shower product, I started using four shower products – Dove Go Fresh Energise Body Wash Grapefruit & Lemongrass Scent, Bioglo Red Ginseng Body Scrub, Botanics Of Australia Revitalising Body Cleanser* and Medihoney Gentle Body Wash* – every time I shower for different body parts! The way I see it is that the skin on my body is not the same type all the way so I need to cater to this. Allow me to introduce you to my current shower buddies…
Dove Go Fresh Energise Body Wash Grapefruit & Lemongrass Scent
My friend came to visit from Hong Kong and all he bought us was this shower cream – LOL. The fruity zingy smell is gorgeous and I use this on my armpits before shaving. Because it is very moisturising, my armpits don’t get that post-shaving burn. My Husband uses this with a shower puff all over his body (but you didn’t really want to know that, did you?)
Bioglo Red Ginseng Body Scrub
Bioglo is a popular Korean brand which is available to buy in Cosway stores. This body scrub is the bee’s knees!!! Exfoliates so well and smells amazing. I use this on my sandpaper legs, my bum and occasionally on my upper arms when I get dry patches of skin. Highly recommended must-have shower product right here! (Reviewed in more detail here)
Botanics Of Australia Revitalising Body Cleanser*
I have previously reviewed a couple of boa products and I didn’t particularly like their smell, but this one smells good – very refreshing but subtle lemon-ish scent. It is extremely hydrating with a velvety texture and I use this on my arms, which then feel nice and soft afterwards. It’s almost like a body moisturiser. It’s definitely worth repurchasing this when I am finished with it.
Medihoney Gentle Body Wash*
I use this SLS-free cleanser on my neck and chest area. I used to get a lot of red pimples on my chest and squeezing them didn’t really do much. But since I started using this, it has somehow cleared that up. Perhaps because it contains honey which is naturally antibacterial and soothing. I tend to be over-generous with this and splodge it all over my upper body. This is also very good on sensitive and sore, weepy patches of eczema on my body. Definitely a more pleasant alternative to what I was using for eczema before. An enthusiastic thumbs-up from me!
What About The Other Body Parts?
If you are super-sleuth, you may have deduced that I only mentioned a few body parts – armpits, bum, arms, legs, neck and chest – but what about the other body parts, e.g. my back and my muff?
Well, I don’t have “bacne” or at least, if I do, I can’t see nor feel it – so I tend to let my shampoo and conditioner flow down from when I wash my hair and hope that the shampoo will cleanse my back and the conditioner will moisturise my back.
As for the vaginal area, I keep it clean with just plain water. I refuse to use any muff products to wash it as I am afraid to disturb the pH of it and cause a vaginal imbalance and suffer from the much-dreaded thrush. Fungal does not equate to fun gal. (Am I witty or what? :P)
Do you use different shower products on different parts of your body? Or am I a weirdo? Who are your shower buddies?
