What’s In My Shower? // The University Edition

Hello beautiful people,

So, I’m super nosey when it comes to discovering what products people like using. If someone is doing their makeup next to me, you can guarantee that I’ll be asking questions on what their favourite brands and products are.

I was thinking of some blog post ideas, and as I had just “spring cleaned” all of my products, I thought someone out there may want to see what I have in my shower at uni,  if no-one is interested- fair enough, but I know i’ll look back on this post in the future and it’ll be cool to see what I was into. I have gone on a massive tangent so lets just get into it…

First of all, a University student bathroom, is more often than not, not the best bathroom in the world. Last year when I lived with all girls, the bathroom was usually mostly tidy, and even when it was messy, it was never really that bad. This year however, I cannot say the same.

I’m not really close with any of my housemates this year, so I highly doubt they will be reading this, but usually our bathroom is a grim place, no matter how many times I attempt to clean it, within 24 hours it’ll be disgusting again. I love uni. It’s great. And although I do technically have a bath, I wouldn’t dream of using it in this house…

So, that being said, I like to keep my shower supplies separate so they don’t get mixed up with anyone else’s, and I know where they all are.  It helps keep things tidy, but also I know people are less likely to steal my things… I realise I’m sounding very paranoid but ya know, you never can tell… plus it’s just handy to have them all in one place!

I keep all my products in this cute little tin that I think my sister gave to me when I went to Uni, so I’m not sure where it’s from, but I’ve used it all throughout Uni and it’s been very helpful- also looks cute!

1. A Razor

Pretty self explanatory, but I always have a razor on hand for the shower, and I’m not really fussy when it comes to the brand of razor. Although last year my housemate had signed up for a really cool subscription service where they would send you a fresh razor every month so I may do that soon!

2. Dove Nourishing Care Shower Oil

This is a recent purchase, but I have used it a few times and really enjoyed it! It’s a really moisturising oil when it hits the water it turns into a milky consistency- great for when I shave my legs!

3. Mini Body Shop Strawberry Shower Gel

I’m using up all my Christmas toiletries and I had this cute mini shower gel, so I just have it in my shower in case I feel like using it. I really love the body shop shower gels, and the strawberry one smells so summery!

4. L’Oreal Elvive Dream Lengths Shampoo & Conditioner

Not going to lie, I only got this shampoo and conditioner because the colour of the bottle reminded me of my old bedroom which was bright pink and orange- good times.

I actually have repurchased this shampoo and conditioner since! (Hence three bottles in the photo) because I really like the smell, and it makes my hair really shiny! I actually really like L’Oreal shampoos, and I’m not allergic to them- win win.

5. Bioré Baking Soda Cleanser Scrub 

I’ve spoken about this before on my blog, but I keep my face wash in the shower because I tend to shower in the mornings so it’s just quicker to wash my face in the shower! I really like the Bioré face washes, and have also used the charcoal one in the past.

6. Dove Silk Glow Body Wash

I love the Dove Body Washes, they smell great and are really moisturising! They are usually are always on sale too, so that’s nice on my student budget!

Obviously sometimes I’ll use different shower gels or shampoos, but for the most part this is what I usually have in the shower! Let me know if you’ve tried any of these products, or if you have any student bathroom horror stories!


Thanks for reading,

Lauren xx
