My favourite shower gel!

My favourite shower gel!

I recently fell in love with Yves Rocher. I never really paid the tiny shop any attention when walking past it in the mall, but after looking at its amazing deals online, I couldn’t help myself. I’m on my second bottle of the Candied Mallows shower gel, and I have another waiting for me too.

First off, the packaging is delightful. The bottle and gel itself are pink, and the label features pretty stars, hearts and sparkles on what look like dangling threads. Doesn’t get more girly than that. I adore the font and the roses in the middle too.

Moving on to the product itself, this stuff is amazing. Being the superficial girl I am, I bought it for the cute packaging, especially because the shower gel is said to be rose scented, which has never been my favourite. However, the “mallows” in the title made me think of marshmallows, so I decided to go ahead and purchase it. In reality it has a gentle scent of rose and marshmallows and something else, so that it’s neither overpowering or sickly sweet. I normally don’t go for perfumed shower gels, but this has become a holy grail product.

Cleansing Conditioners

Cleansing Conditioners

I’ve decided to slowly start incorporating the Curly Girl method into my hair care routine. The CG method is also known as co-washing or no-poo, where you use a cleansing conditioner instead of shampoos, which contain harsh, harmful chemicals that are especially horrible for curly hair. The tip is looking for products that don’t have any ingredients ending with “cone.”

I’m Canadian and after several (ok, more than several) minutes at a nearby Shoppers Drug Mart, I found L’oreal Evercreme cleansing conditioner. It was the only cleansing conditioner I could find, but it seems to be working okay on my hair so far!

I’m going to use it once or twice a week, and shampoo only once a week from now on. I wouldn’t shampoo at all but I bleach my hair and use a purple shampoo to get rid of the brassiness. Once my hair is at the colour I want it to be, I plan on taking shampoo out completely.
