Pretties for our shampoo box.

Our guest bathroom renovation is finished. Actually, there are still some finishing touches that need to be done, but it’s done enough for guests. And guests are exactly the reason why I’ve been too busy to take pictures yet. But it’s on my weekend to-do list, so I’m hoping to post them next week!

In the meantime, I thought I’d share some of the prettily packaged products that I found when I did some looking around online. We very tediously tiled our shampoo box (which I kept calling our window box the whole time we were tiling – word retrieval’s hard for me!) during our bathroom renovation and wanted something nice to display. Oh, and P.S., the alliteration in this paragraph was completely unintentional and I actually kind of found it irritating, but I’m leaving it. Forgive moi.

Here are a few pretty – and unisex – items from Bath and Body works:

C.O. Bigelow “Not Your Ordinary” Daily Shampoo – $12

MOP Lemongrass Shampoo – $14

Aromatherapy Body and Shine Shampoo – $10

MOP C-Straight Smoothing Shampoo – $16

And here are a couple more sweet and simple items from Philosophy:

Inner Grace shampoo, bath and shower gel – $34.50 - I love that it’s two for one!

Pure Grace shampoo – $22

Pure Grace conditioner – $21

I think I’d be happy with pretty much any of these products, looks wise at least. But after thinking about it, reality set it. We just spent a few thousand over several months on our bathroom. So I decided to go frugal for now.

We already had one bottle of shampoo that I had bought and never used. And the green in the bottle matched the art we hung. So I got a matching conditioner and shower gel that I also had and here’s what I ended up with (for now):

Avalon Organics Shampoo and Conditioner (image source linked, but I got mine at Whole Foods)

Ivory body wash in Simply Ivory Aloe (image source linked, but I got mine at the grocery store)

Even though we didn’t buy anything, it was worth the look around though because now I know what’s out there for next time. Plus I got to share it with all ya’ll.

Also, it made me realize that I never, ever buy beauty products based on how they look. So, I think I’ll do an upcoming post on how I do make my beauty product decisions. Till then!
