As I was getting ready this morning, I realized three bathroom essentials that I consider my current favorites. Note that I simply got most of these items off the rack, and used them with blind faith, hoping that they deliver according to their product description.
1. Olay® 2-in-1 Essential Oils Ribbons Jojoba Extract + Luscious Orchid Moisturizing Body Wash
I got this body wash from Duty Free when Dad returned from a 3-day business trip to Japan in January. I did not really plan on buying anything there because I just replenished my toiletries, but my husband was insistent on getting on a few imported things because it’s relatively cheaper compared to those sold in the local grocery. He picked this up from the rack because he thought it smelled good, and I thought so, too. It might have been on the third day of using it [twice] when I noticed my skin feeling soft and hydrated. Its floral scent lasts for a few good hours which I find impressive.
I use this body wash sparingly since it lathers easily with a loofa. Although I have not emptied my bottle, I wanted to get another one; however, it wasn’t available in local groceries as well as in S&R, so I might have to look for a body wash similar to this one.
2. Aquaphor® Healing Ointment
Unlike most women, I don’t use lotion a lot. I only feel the need to use one during the rainy or cold season when my skin tends to become more dry. So dry that I oftentimes find myself scratching it to the point that it develops an abrasion. I know it’s not good practice, but dry, itchy skin can be intolerable.
I discovered this product from Mom. I kept complaining about how dry my legs have become, and she gave me this. It is similar to a petroleum jelly except it comes in a tube which makes it more convenient to use. I have used this for months now, and I can tell that it has kept my legs moisturized. I sometimes apply this to my lips overnight, no longer waking up to bloody cracked ones.
3. Organix Extra Penetrating Moroccan Argan Oil Dry & Coarse Hair
While we’re on the subject of moisturizing and healing products, this one has got to be my holy grail. I have naturally thick and coarse hair strands (credits to Dad’s genetics), and exposing my tresses to damaging tools and treatments (i.e., ironing, curling, hair straightening/coloring) made it dry and dull. It even came to a point when my hair felt stiff and unmanageable.
I have kept my hair long and permanently dyed for four years now, but I never thought of chopping it all off altogether. I only get a “trim” once or in every six months, and that’s my best effort in making my tresses healthy (aside from using conditioner every time, of course). That’s until I discovered this product. I usually apply this while my hair is still damp (not dripping) from taking a shower, and leave it on overnight. I focus on the lower half of my hair where it is most dry. Now waking up to soft and manageable hair makes a beautiful morning!
