[The Shower Files] A Terrific Tropical Duo From H2O+ Beauty…and Disposable Razors to Avoid

Stuff in my shower I’m loving…and stuff I’m not

OK, I’ll come clean (haha! Get it?). I spend an inordinate amount of time in my shower because 1) nobody asks me questions while I’m in there, 2) nobody bites my ankles, 3) nobody tugs at my hair, tries to get on my lap, or begs for food (I’m talking to you, Tabs). It’s my safe place, so if it seems like I spend more time showering than a normal woman should, it’s BECAUSE I AM HIDING. 🙂

A couple things I’m currently using in the pursuit of covert cleanliness…

H2O+ Beauty Coconut Verbena Body Wash and Body Butter Body Duo ($34 for both)

I’m gonna call it. This will be a summer 2018 “must have.” Between the foamy bath gel (bubbly nirvana) and the moisturizing body butter (I’ve got lizard skin and use it twice/day — once in the morning and again at night), my skin smells like I just teleported here from the Grand Hyatt in Poipu on Kauai.

Lemony without venturing into Pledge territory, and coco-nutty without smelling like a corny celebrity perfume. It’s hard to find something that smells tropical without the eau de sunscreen notes, a la Bobbi Brown Beach, and this hits the spot. Plus, the backs of your knees won’t feel sticky afterwards (totally crucial).

They’re also a good deal if you buy them together in the duo. $34 for a 12.2-oz. bottle of the Body Wash and an 8-oz. bottle of Body Butter ($40 purchased separately).

Gillette Venus Simply 3 razors ($5.99 for four)

Imagine shaving your lady bits with a plastic butter knife from a children’s birthday party.

Yup, these left me with a smattering of ingrown hairs on my bikini line. BOO. Legs and underarms are passable and decently smooth, but you’ll have to shave again in a day or two, depending on the severity of your Sasquatch situation. $5.99 for a pack of four.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
