Friday Favourites | New and Old Shower Favourites

So, today I have a post all about my current shower favourites, whether they be new or old. I'm trying to finish up some products to create some space, and in doing that I've found some old products that I love.  

The first is the Superdrug Naturals Raspberry and Macadamia Nut Shampoo. This is quite old, and this  has been discontinued but it has been replaced with a new Superdrug Naturals range that does feature and Raspberry and Macadamia Nut Shampoo.  I just find this to be a great, bargain shampoo that leaves my hair feeling clean but not to dried out. It lathers nicely and smells gorgeous too which is a great bonus. You can find the replacement product here for just £1.99 but they are always on some kind of sale so you can get it cheaper. 

My next favourite at the moment is Superdrug Naturals Coconut and Sweet Almond Conditioner. This one isn't as amazing as the Intense Coconut and Sweet Almond conditioner that used to feature in this range, but it's a decent second. It is nice and thick, smells great and leaves my hair feeling nourished. It was super cheap, but has been discontinued. Like the shampoo, it does have a replacement  in the new Superdrug line but it's not the same conditioner. You can pick up the replacement here for £1.99. 

The next thing I've been using recently is the Soap and Glory Peaches and Clean Cleansing Milk. I've tried this before and adored it, but didn't re-purcahse when the packaging change was made. I also believe there was something changed about the formula, but it was minor from what I can remember. Anyway, I got this from the Christmas gift set, and just started really using it. I find it great as a face cleanser, and love to use it as a mask for a good skin treatment. It's £8.00 from Boots and you can get it online here.

Up next we have something that I also got around Christmas time, and have only just started using. My Aunt got me a Sanctuary set, and I've been working my way through it. The Body Wash was a travel size that was in the kit, and I've been loving it. It lathers up nicely, and has some small, very gentle beads suspended in the gel. It doesn't really exfoliate the skin all that well, but it's a nice little addition. It smells great, like most sanctuary things,  and for something so small, it's lasting well. You can get the full size here, and it's only  £5.50 (cheaper than I first thought it would be). 

Finally, I have the Nivea In Shower Body Conditioner. It's something I've been using on and off since it came out and I always change my mind on it. Sometimes I love it, and sometimes I just don't think it does anything. At the moment, I'm loving it. It doesn't replace the need for body lotion, but it does give my skin a little extra boost of hydration. It's not to expensive, and I think they have just come out with some more in the range with different scents and benefits. Also, they have an after sun in shower conditioner which I think would be great for the summer because being a ginger nut like I am means I burn at the mear sight of sun (sun tan lotion or not). You can pick up the Nivea In Shower Body Conditioner here for just £3.40 if you fancy giving it a try.

That's it for now guys! Let me know what your shower staples are at the moment? I sometimes think basics like this get overlooked, and it's nice just to know what people are using everyday and what they love. I hope you all have a gorgeous day, and I hope to see you soon.


  1. I don't really use much in the shower, just have a wash and wash my hair!! Haha.

  2. I bought Peaches and Clean in a blogsale and I really need to get on to trying it out. I want to use it more as a mask because I've heard it's quite stripping so might irritate my skin if used daily. Thanks for reminding me! Great post!
