New In My Bathroom

I've recently picked up a few new beauty/bathroom items that are new to me, so I thought I'd let you know what my thoughts are so far.
Set of 3 Clear Wash Bags
M&S Set of 3 Clear Wash Bags
I don't know what's up with me lately but I seem to keep buying wash bags. And whilst all my new ones are nice, I should have just saved my money and gone straight for this set of 3 wash bags from Marks & Spencer at £7.50. Yes that's £7.50 for all 3! They are all great sizes - the smallest is a decent size handbag size and the largest size perfect for holidays and will hold full size shampoo, conditioner, body wash etc. The bags are edged in a rose gold trim and you can tell these will last as the zips are decent. Easy to wipe clean and of course you can see exactly what's in the bag.
New Look Shower Cap
New Look Shower Cap
Yes I wear a shower cap when I'm not washing my hair in the shower, and when I'm soaking in the bath and I don't want to get my hair wet. Practical doesn't need to be dull, so after 100 years of wearing a free white hotel shower cap, I splashed out and bought my own. And at £3.99 for this rose gold leopard print cap, it's hardly breaking the bank.
CoLab Dry Shampoo
CoLab Dry Shampoo
I have been using CoLab dry shampoo for quite a while now and love it. All of their dry shampoos smell really nice and don't leave any white residue. I had to pick up this new fragrance - Paradise, because just look at the tin, it's too cute. CoLab is the only dry shampoo for me and this new one smells fresh and sweet and is only £3.49 from Superdrug.
Colgate Max White
Colgate Max White
This mouthwash was on offer in Boots at £4.20 and of course I was suckered in by the "instantly whiter teeth". Yes it does, because the mouthwash is blue and straight after gargling the blue rinse leaves a brighter look to your teeth but that does go. However, unlike the god awful Listerine, which is like gargling with battery acid laced with Sambuca, this is not unpleasant to use, so I'm happy to continue with this.
Botanicals Deep Peace Body Oil
Botanicals Deep Peace Body Oil*
Botanicals sent this body oil to me to try out and I have to admit to thinking how on earth was single me going to apply this massage oil. But actually it's a body oil and all you need to do is massage onto your arms, neck and shoulders at bed time. 
This is a lovely lavender scented oil which helps to relax you before bed and brings about a sense of calm and general well being.
Available from Botanicals for £20.00 HERE.
Pixi + Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse
Pixi + Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse
I will always support other bloggers by purchasing and trying out any products they've been lucky enough to develop. Caroline Hirons (Skin care guru) was the person who alerted me to the benefits and need to double cleanse, so when I saw that she'd teamed up with Pixi to bring out a pot with everything you'll need to double cleanse, I literally rushed down to my local M&S to buy it.
The pot is split in two, one side has a lovely balm - very similar to Clinique's Take the Day off and the other side a cream. 
Now whilst I love the concept, I do have an issue with the price (£24.00) and the cream. I love the balm and if the whole pot was the balm, I wouldn't have anything negative to say but then it wouldn't be a double cleanse! I'm not keen on the cream at all. For me, it's not creamy enough and even though I've only used the cream a few times, you can see that you'll use the cream up way sooner than the balm. And then it won't be a double cleanse. I also don't feel that the cream is dense enough to remove make up. It's great for a morning cleanse though. Oh and also my cream side had a large air bubble in which meant that there was an empty gap where there was no cream.
If this was half the price, it would be brilliant value but for me, I'll be going back to Clinique take the day off, which is £2 less and I know will last a lot longer.
Wet Brush
Wet Brush
I didn't get the buzz around the tangle teezer, so I resisted the hype around the wet brush but after a glowing review from my daughter, I thought I'd give it a go. And it is brilliant. On first use I thought "well this isn't going to get through tangles" because it is so soft and gentle. But it does. I use it on wet and dry hair and it has miraculously helped to calm down frizz and this is the first winter in years I haven't had crazy static hair.
You can get the wet brush from Boots, starting at £11.99.
Rimmel Brow Shake Filling Powder
Rimmel Brow Shake Filling Powder*
I was chuffed to receive these new brow powders from Rimmel, especially as I have loved the Brow this Way gel for a long time. As you can see there are four shades - light brown 001, medium brown 002, dark brown 003 and soft black 004.
Rimmel Brow Shake Filling Powder
You need to shake the bottle before gently applying the powder using the sponge type brush applicator. The brow powder is incredibly pigmented, so only gentle pressure is needed. The brow powder will fill in, define and line your brows. And even though this is a powder, this will stay put and not budge until you use make up remover/cleanser. £5.99 from Superdrug.

I need another shelf or two in my bathroom!



  1. I haven't tried the brand CoLab yet but feel like I've heard a few people talk about it. Definitely want to try it for myself!

  2. I was a tangle teezer user and love the wet brush too - amazing how it gets the tangles out without pulling...
