Conditioner for body instead of my hair, scrub for my hair instead of my body and BB cream for my body instead of my face.

Recently I have been mixing it up and really enjoying products with a difference. 

                              alternative use

I'm fully aware I'm late trying out the Nivea in-shower body moisturiser, however I'm so glad I have now. To be honest I'm pretty lazy applying body moisturiser on a day to day basis. So this is perfect! When I first used it it did feel strange applying a product the texture of moisturiser on wet skin, but its so quick and simple and after rinsing leaves your skin deliciously smooth. Plus your not left with greasy hands!

Another strange texture to use on my hair is a scrub. I decided to try out the new range of Garnier hair care 'Ultimate blends' so aswell as the shampoo designed for mid-length hair with split ends I also tried the hair scrub.

This product has micro beads and claims to gently polish the hair surface to smooth split ends. This appealed to me as I have ombre hair and therefore my ends are a lot drier. After leaving the scrub in for 1 minute and then rinsing the ends felt really good and smooth and also smelt really great.

Finally, on a recent shopping trip I saw this beauty! Rimmel's Instant wash off tan BB Skin perfector. As soon as I saw this fake tan with 'skin perfecting powers' I had to try it! I am awful at bumping and grazing my legs so even though tanning my body can improve the general look of my skin some imperfections can still 'shine' through. According to Rimmel this evens skin tone, covers, perfects and lasts for 24 hours. I haven't yet tested the longevity of this product but fingers crossed that this is my new Saturday night saviour!
