A good year after my first 'What's in my shower' post, it is time for another roundup of bath and body products I've been liking. I am back with an overview of the treats that have been ruling my shower routine for the past four months or so.
HAIR CARE♢ Garnier Ultra Doux 'Marvellous Transformer'
For shampoo, I've been liking argan oil based products a lot lately. I started using liquid shampoo again around March-April after washing my hair with solid shampoo only for over a year. The Ultimate Blends collection (branded as Ultra Doux in Belgium) from Garnier has been well-loved in our family. The Marvellous Transformer shampoo with a blend of Moroccan argan oil and Japanese camelia oil intensely nourishes my dry, dull hair and boosts shine.
♢ Lush Cosmetics Jason and the Argan Oil
I have two backups of Jason and the Argan Oil by Lush Cosmetics, so I think it's safe to say it has grown to be a favourite! This bright purple solid shampoo is packed with argan oil and rose absolute to strengthen and soften hair, and add a lustrous shine. It smells like the popular Rose Jam shower gel too, which is a cool extra.
♢ Garnier Ultimate Blends 'Honey Treasures' & 'Marvellous Transformer'
New in my hair care routine is leave-in deep conditioner. The ones by Garnier are awesome and come in a useful pot of no less than 300ml. Honey Treasures, with royal jelly, honey and propolis extracts, is a repairing mask for damaged hair, while Marvellous Transformer is a multifunctional treatment that leaves (dry) hair feeling supple and nourished.
BODY CARE♢ & Other Stories 'Steel Garden'
Probably my number one favourite bath product of the moment is this sugar-based body scrub from & Other Stories. Buffing away dead skin cells once or twice a week not only boosts healthier and brighter skin, it's also a very relaxing treatment. Since the formula transforms into a milky lather when mixed with water, I like to double the product as a shaving cream as well. Nothing but good words on this one! Read my *full review* here.
♢ Yves Rocher 'Mango Coriander'
The (fairly) new Mango and Coriander line by Yves Rocher is absolutely worth checking out! The bath & shower gel is so refreshing to use in the morning and comes at a very reasonable price too! I can't stop sniffing the bottle though, the combination of sweet and herbal in this fragrance is something I've never found before.
♢ Nivea In-Shower Body Lotion
On days when I'm too lazy to moisturise after showering, I'll opt for in-shower body lotion. They are super easy as you apply the skin conditioner in the shower and rinse off immediately. The ones by Nivea offer 24h+ care and don't leave a greasy residue. Another go-to is Ro's Argan Body Conditioner by Lush Cosmetics.
♢ Ever since I started using coconut oil as a body moisturiser, my skin has been much softer and smoother. Coconut oil calms and hydrates, and is therefore a great natural remedy for very dry skin. Another tip is to use it on new tattoos (but only after they have healed!) or as lip balm.
♢ Caudalie's Divine Oil is a luxurious body oil that hydrates skin and leaves it smelling beautifully. I use it for an extra pick-me-up or on special occasions. I also like it as a base to layer perfume on top of, too.

One thing I'm particularly curious about is if any of you use coconut oil as a beauty product. If so, what for? Feel free to share in the comments!
