Shower Basics: Body Wash & Razors

So I've decided to start a new series on my blog dedicated to shower basics. Here I'll review shower products such as body washes, razors, shampoos, conditioners and more! In full detail you'll learn about the products used, what's great about them and also what's bad about them. I hope you all enjoy! **Let me know if this is a series I should keep or ditch**

The first product I'd like to tell you about is the Nivea Touch of Happiness body wash.

This was on sale a couple of weeks ago at CVS and I happened to have a MF coupon for $3.00 off. I couldn't help but purchase this since it was only $0.88! That's a bargain, considering these retail for anywhere from $4.00-$7.99.

The scent I purchased is Orange Blossom & Bamboo Essence. The smell is to die for! It smells just like oranges with a touch of sweetness from something else. I can't really describe the sweetness part. The great thing about this body wash is that the citrus smell isn't harsh. I don't know about you but I'd smelled some really harsh citrus body washes and lotions. This is mild but such a great smell. 

It says it foams without a loofah and it does. It's also really smooth and since it moisturizes, your skin feels super soft. I love it.

On a rating scale of 1-10, 1 being horrible 10 being amazing.

My rating: 10!

My next product to review with you is the Shick Hydro 5 razor.

I don't know if any of you are like me and are super picky about what razor you use. I know I am the worst when it comes to razors. I want something that cuts close but doesn't end up hacking me to pieces. I also want something that's smooth and glides easily.

I've always had a problem with disposable razors. (I HATE THEM). So when I got this razor, it was love. <---I know ... weird. Anyway, I had wanted to try this razor out from day one. It's supposed to be a "guys" razor but they always end up being the best razors. I got a free shick hydro one day when my boyfriend ordered some parts for his bike from danscomp. They actually throw in a free razor with every purchase. Which is a little weird but hey, I love free stuff. Not only was it free but each one I got has coupons on the back for $3.00 off razor refills and $0.50 off shaving gel.

Now, you're probably wondering what is so special about this razor. Well, this razor has a strip of hydrating gel at the top of the razor. I've tried other razors that have the gel on the top but they never really worked right. This one actually works and you don't hardly have to use shower gel or soap when using it because it glides across your skin with ease. Not only that, but it's perfect for a certain area that's sensitive (the lady region). 

If you're tired of getting cut up, this is the razor for you. I recommend it to any of you!

 My rating: 10!

I hope you all enjoyed this new series and let me know what you think and if you've used these products before.

  1. I have two giant bottles of Olay body wash I need to use up because I want to try that Nivea stuff! :) I always use men's razors. I totally understand where you're coming from about being picky, we have sensitive skin and for some reason girl razors just don't cut it for me!
