Are you a brand snob with shower gels?

by xin on July 22, 2011

Happy Friday ladies :D

Time really flies when you are busy ;)

As I was taking a shower just now, it suddenly struck me that, I am actually not very particular about shower gels. It’s really about just getting the job done while I am in a hurry.

showegels

I would practically use anything (provided that they smell good). My favorite shower gel in the morning is the medicated shower cream (was using a Dettol), while at night I like to use one with the scrub.

During the weekend when I have time, I would do a thorough scrubbing and bath oil :)

I have not known anyone that only uses ‘branded’ shower gels, and I wanna know your take on this ;) Do share with us :D

I’ve gone up and down the price range. I love pricey scented shower gels and I use them very sparingly. But lately, because of my stupid hands, the only one that works is Eucerin which isn’t super cheap but not super ex either. Doesn’t smell great either :P

Same as you, when it comes to shower gel, as long as they smell good and feels soft and smooth! I would say, it’s a GO!

I normally just buy whatever’s on sale at the supermarket or pharmacy. Having said that, I do have pricier shower gels which I use sparingly on days when I need a pick-me-up :)

Well, my current can’t live without is yves rocher, orange blossom honey. Absolutely divine! And not ex either. I can’t use too harsh ie dettol, shokobutsu dries out my skin badly :(

I am not so much when it comes to body washes, but for aromatherapy gels in my steam shower, I only use Bath & Body works stuff. The cheaper ones it seems like they dont use as much scent and oils. The Bath & Body works is great and the best I have found.

wow! steam shower sounds really cool! i agree that the cheap ones are almost formulated without any essential oils, there is always a price to pay for that extra oil ;)

I’ll use anything that doesn’t cause my skin to itch or my eczema patches to flare up. I always have a huge bottle of Sebamed in my shower but it doesn’t smell very appealing. I also rotate between Lush and L’Occitane bar soaps. I can’t really use anything that leaves an oily feeling behind, such products are guaranteed to make me itch real bad :-(

i use the drugstore stuff for everyday use, the pricier ones for days when i pamper myself or in need of a pick me up or for special occasions!

all i want for a shower gel/ shampoo is to smell good and cleanse my skin well! don’t give me dry skin can already :P
