What’s In My Shower? – My Drugstore Essentials

I admit it, I’m nosey.  I love hearing about products that my friends are using, and I love sharing with each other any tips, secrets, or a great bargain we may happen to stumble across.  The other day I was removing the cap off of my shower gel, banging it into the palm of my hand, trying to squeeze out one more day—yep, it was time to head to the store!  So, what’s in my shower?

These products are nothing fancy, they can all be found at your local drugstore or grocery store.  I use all of them just about every day and find myself repurchasing over and over.


I love this CeraVe Cleanser.  It’s a gentle, creamy formula. It contains Hyaluronic Acid, so it will help to retain moisture, and it doesn’t clog your pores.   I always remove my makeup first and use this as my second cleanse in the evening, in the morning, I use it on its own in the shower.

This Aveeno Positively Radiant 60-second in-shower facial wash is great.  I use this about two to three times a week as an exfoliator. I love the way my face looks and feels after using this. It appears brighter and less tired looking.

This sugar scrub smells AMAZING.  I love using this before I self-tan, I’ll take a large scoop with my exfoliator glove and scrub, a crucial step when self-tanning!   When I am not self-tanning,  I use it before shaving my legs, and as an all-over body exfoliator. It leaves your skin so smooth.  I have tried most of the scents from Tree Hut, this one by far is my favorite.


This is only the second time I have repurchased this Raw Sugar body wash.  I’m really not loyal to one particular brand.  This smells really nice, and it is not drying, plus, I had a coupon and it was on sale, so it made its way into my basket. :). I found this at Target.

This Cremo shaving cream is one product that I will never be without.  I owe this one to my daughter Monica, she claimed it to be “life changing”, and I think I have to agree.  It’s in the men’s section, along with the razor I use.  For some reason, I feel men’s shaving products are better.  I don’t need my legs to smell like raspberries or flowers for the 5 minutes that I am shaving, I want a close smooth shave—and this delivers.  Trust me.  They do make mango and lavender scents for women, for about $2.00 more, save your money, it’s all the same!

Feminine wash, yes ladies, we may not like to admit it, but as we get older, perhaps going through menopause, or it may just be your special time of the month, our lady parts sometimes need a little extra attention.  Regular body wash can be drying or harsh on sensitive skin.  This wash by Sweet Spot just makes ya feel “fresher”, I buy this at Target.  Sorry, Dad, I know you are reading this and that was probably awkward. 😉

The finale.  I lather this in-shower lotion all over and let it soak in as I run the pumice stone over my heals.  After rinsing,  your skin is so soft.  It’s so hydrating, I have occasionally skipped putting lotion on after getting out of the shower.


There ya have it.  Leave me a comment if there is something you love using in the shower that I just may have to go run out and try!


Thanks for stopping by.  See ya next time & Stay Clean! XO
