What's In My Shower ?

I know this is more of a YT tag but I just love watching those videos that I thought I'd bring the tag to blogs ! ( I'm sure i'm not the only one ! ) It's a pretty random post but I know a lot of people enjoy these so much ( me included (; ) 

From left to right : 
Herbal Essences Beautiful Ends Split End Protection Intensive Mask :
Claims: I'm your hair's passionate Protector and Defender. I'll leave your hair strong to carry on... and on... and on. And keep it feeling voluptuously velvety.
I use this mask once a week and although it doesn't live up fully to it's claims it does the trick for me. It says it protects your hair from any split ends but I don't totally agree with this. The thing I love about this item is that it conditions your hair exceptionally well . After using this my hair smells yummy ( for THE ENTIRE DAY ) and it's so soft ! I have really dry ends so this does the trick :) 

Asience Nature Smooth Conditioner 
Claims: Detangles dehydrated hair for a smooth finish. Hydrating Formula provides light moisture from root to tip without oiliness. Scalp feels light and refreshed while hair is smooth with no tangles at the ends.
This exactly what my hair needs. I have the rather weird combination of oily and dry hair. My scalp can get really oily making my hair look really dull and my ends are extremely dry and gets tangled easily ! Not exactly the easiest hair to take care of ! This brand Asience is a Japanese brand specially made for Asian hair ! I am actually half Singaporean so that's probably where I got this hair from ! LOL As for the product itself it is actually really good! I feel like my ends have really improved and are way less dry than they used to be. I definitely recommend this product for anyone who has really dry/tangly ends ! Albeit I tried looking for a website on which you could purchase this product and I didn't find any ! You're either going to have to buy it on eBay or in Asia :) 

La Roche-Posay  Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel For Oily Sensitive Skin 
Claims: Effaclar gel gently purifies the skin thanks to cleansing ingredients selected to respect sensitive skin. It eliminates impurities and excess sebum leaving the skin clear and refreshed. 
I don't think you can find a gentler cleanser as this one . It is perfect for oily sensitive skin ( DUH . it's written on the bottle! ) and honestly I'm not ready to change this anytime soon ! 

Pantene Pro-V Ice Shine Shampoo 
Claims: Transforms Tired, Dull Hair .
To be honest , it isn't my favorite shampoo. I like to try out new shampoos so this one of them and I still prefer Herbal Essences ! I mean like the name of the product is Ice Shine and okay there may be some shine at the beginning of the day but it doesn't last long. Your hair quickly goes back to it's normal (dull for me) state. 

Occitane Cleansing and Soothing Shower Oil 
This is by far my favorite body wash ever ! I know the word oil is probably going to disgust you but it's actually amazing for your skin. I tend to have dry arms and legs but since I've been using this my skin has considerably improved. It smells amazing ( it's with almond oil ) and it's so delicate on your skin and it leaves you feeling so refreshed ! Ah , love it . After getting this for Christmas I read on InStyle that Nicole Richie loves this product so I just had to grab it from my shelves and give it a try ! Happily surprised :) 

There you have it ! This is what you can find in my shower ! Then I obviously have the face exfoliators but I don't leave them in my shower. I'm sure that if you were to compare my shower with Elle's from YT (allthatglitters21) or Blair ( juicystar07) mine would be the crappiest but I'm slowly trying to use more products to take care of my skin :) Taking baby steps here ! 

It's back to revisions fore me !
