S&G Rich & Famous Body Wash


Dual-use shower and bath which is good I guess this will bubble up nicely. The problem with this is that among all the S&G body wash, this is the one that I have no opinion on. It’s like just so general. The scent is not strong enough. It doesn’t captivate you. The colour is like that nothing interesting. 

The product itself is good. It lathers well. And basically a good moisturising body wash. But it just doesn’t scream buy me. And once you use it, it doesn’t scream buy me again. So I will continue to use it. It’s still a good soap. But it just doesn’t make me happy using this. Is that weird?

TFS Orchid Sensual Body Cleanser

This is quite a nice flowery cleanser. It’s a light scent that doesn’t extend out of the shower. But it’s still quite good. I enjoy using it but I wouldn’t buy a full size of this. It’s a waste of cleanser I feel. Cause it’s rather liquid like. So a lot will be used up fast. 

S&G Travel Size Body Wash

I like these shower gels. They comes in 75ml, instead of the usual 50ml travel size. Anyway these travel size ones is $8 per bottle at Sephora. 

I have the Clean On Me Shower Gel and Clean Girls Body Wash. I like them enough. They’re moisturizing and lather on well. The scents are alright too. I just still prefer the original scent. 

Baylis & Harding Body Wash and Body Lotion

This is one of those gift set that you get from Watsons to give to your colleauge you hardly talk to. The body wash is alright, but 2-3 uses, that’s about it. It does lather on, but it just used up a lot of shower gel to do so. The smell is not bad, flowery but not overpowering. It’s just something you’ll use without thinking about. 

The body lotion has a weird lilac and lavender scent. I don’t know why the set comes with different scents. And I don’t know why the scents did not smell like what flowers they’re suppose to be. The lotion itself is good though. The dry time is super fast and it is not sticky at all. I wish it has a better scent though. But I’m really impressed with the quality. 

S&G Whipped Clean Shower Butter

This smells of almonds, but when you lather it on, it smells of pistachio. The shower butter feels like body lotion. But it will lather and bubble up when you rub it in. It takes some getting used to, but once you know how to soap it up, it’s really nice to use this. Cause it’s just the most moisturing shower gel ever. Ok, it’s not a gel, it’s just a good no hassle soap. And you don’t have to use body lotion after, cause your skin is already so smooth. It helps with dry skin and saves time from using body lotion. See, it’s a good shower wash for lazy people like me. 

Naturals Shampoo Hair & Body

I love the squeezy tube of this. This is just some of the products that certain hotel are using. Not sure which hotel, but I did get this from a hotel association event. I can see why it’s a good product. It’s a 2 in 1 shampoo and soap. This reminds me of peaches even though it doesn’t smell like it. It’s suppose to be oranges, but it doesn’t smell like oranges either.  I guess the packaging has an orange fruit on it, that’s why I think of peaches. Not sure why also. 

I find that I can use this for 3 days as shampoo no problem. On the last 3rd night, I found that my hair get slightly oily. So I guess I can get away with 2 full days with this. 

For soap, it’s nice cause it smells nice. I feel that it’s better as shampoo than soap. But it’s alright. It doesn’t foam up as well, but it lather on alright. As I said the scent is wonderful, but it won’t linger. So that’s the downside to me. 

Not sure if you can actually buy this somewhere. But I’ll definitely edit here if I saw it somewhere. 

Yves Rocher Organic Raspberry Shower Gel

Let me say this will be much better if the cap is one that you can pop open instead of having to turn open kind. As in the opening in this is way too big. It’s also time consuming and troublesome to open and close the bottle. Especially if you just want a quick shower. 

The scent is lovely. It does lather on quite alright. But I have to use quite a fair amount for my whole body. So 400ml will be used up quite fast. Not really worth the money. But this will be nice in the bath or shower with those beige tiles. It will just fit into the background. Other than that, really I don’t see the benefit of this. 

Bathing With Sharks


I am using this right now. I bought this cause it is cool. It is a blue shower gel. It has a nice subtle scent, which I think will be good for night time bath for kids. This doesn’t lather much. You have to use really a lot to get wash up. Even though, it doesn’t have the minty fresh scent, I always feel extra clean using this. I don’t know why. Anyway, I bought it at Sephora at $20 for 400ml. So it is not exactly cheap.

What’s In My Shower

They say that 80% of people in Singapore stay in HDB (public housing). My mom’s house is under the old layout which only has 1 bathroom. Basically it is 2. One for shower, the other is the toilet. There are 5 of us trying to use the shower daily. Thankfully, we have different schedule, so we never have to fight for the shower. We also have 4 “shelf” area where we put the shampoo and soap on. And 1 shelf is specially for me. While the rest sort of share shower gel and shampoo, I tend to have my own. The rest of the shelves consist of 1) shampoo (general, bro, sis), shower gel, 2) facial wash (mom, sis, bro), eczema soap, conditioner and 3) shower cap, mini toiletries, etc.

When it comes to my shelf, I have 9 item squeeze into the tiny space. Plus the conditioner which I usually share with my sis therefore it wont be on my shelf. Here are the item I am using at the moment.
1.Shampoo
I am in between shampoos. I am usually either using Avalon Organics thickening shampoo or Naturvital hair loss shampoo. Or maybe some Klorane. So it really depend. 

2. Clarifying shampoo

I’ve been using this Avalon Organics Clarifying Lemon Shampoo for a while, and I really mean a while. I just cant seem to finish this up. I hardly use this as I don’t think this is as good. I try to use this once a week, but will be more if I took a late shower, cause I have no confidence in my oily hair. So this is just good for a day.

3. Hair mask/treatment
I tend to use more hair mask than conditioner. It is much thicker and I don’t have to use as much.

I like this. It’s thick and a little is all you need to make your hair extra smooth. I used it once and after for 3 days straight I don’t use any conditioner. My hair is still very smooth. I was so impressed. In term of strengthening, well I’m not really sure how good it is. But it’s really nice for tangle free hair for days. It’s also not that expensive.

I don’t like the shampoo and conditioner as much. Cause you really have to use a lot of it. But this one is much better.

4. Shower gel

I am not so fussy when it comes to shower gel, but I do love fruity scented shower gel. About 70% of the time, I am using TBS or Sephora. This time I have the mango creamy body wash from Sephora. This smells so much like mango pudding. It’s very creamy and foam up nicely. It doesn’t give crazy foam, but it’s nice on the body. It’s moisturising and doesn’t leave your skin feeling dry. I really like it. 

5. Body scrub

This is the honey body scrub. I just cant get over the scent of TBS honey. its just so sweet and lovely. I really do love most of the scents from TBS and I just cant get over them. Bought this on sale, if not I will prefer to use the squeeze tube one which is for daily use. The tub one is to be used once or twice a week only as it is more abrasive. 

6. Face wash

I’m not sure if I like this. It is quite watery. It has this scent that I can’t describe but it just feels organic and westernise herbal. Yea it doesn’t make sense, but that is that. I am not sure if this is the reason pimple kept popping out. In term of cleansing, this do great. It feels like it strip off moisture, yet it doesn’t leave your skin dry. 

7. Facial scrub

This is TheFaceShop Flebeaute White Crystal Diamond Peeling. It’s not exactly a facial scrub, but I guess you can consider it as one. You can use it on a dry face or a wet one. It is so lovely on the face regardless. It foam up well. So on dry face, you use this in circular motion for about 1 minute, then you rinse it. It feels good on the face. And after you rinse off, your fave just feels super clean. With a wet face, this is less abrasive. But still function he same. 

8. Hygiene wash

I use the travel size one. Especially for the brand Lactacyd, I will buy the 60ml at $2 cause ml by ml comparing to the full size, this is much cheaper. I pretty much tried all the different variants they have, and I like the original best. I am not so choosy on the brand I use. But not everything works well for me. The yellow bottle of Lactacyd is a no for me. 

9. Shaver

I will have a razor in the shower. This will be for my legs. I shave like every 2-3days. This one is the 3 blades one. The refills are not as expensive as the 4 or 5 blades. But I buy them on sale anyway. I know you are suppose to throw away the blade after like a few uses, but I will only throw it away if I feel that it’s no longer sharp. And that is a personal feel. But ya, I prefer guy shaver as they are slightly cheaper. And I use conditioner to lather up, so no problem there. 

So those are the things I usually have in my bathroom. Different brand, but same function. I wish we can have bath tubs in HDB. I want to use Lush bombs so badly. Oh well, we can’t have everything. 

S&G Sugar Crush

Sugar Crush is a very light scent as compare to the rest of the S&G scents. I guess it is suppose to be lime, lemon kind of scent. But it really is just very light. The body wash is like a moisturiser. It is creamy white and feels like a body lotion. It lathers slightly, so you know that you are using body wash and not lotion.

This is a 500ml bottle, and I have to use about 3 full pump for my whole body. Still it will last quite a long time, but I was hoping that this has a stronger scent. As I feel I put this on, but it just doesn’t make me as refreshed as I should be. At least it is moisturising so it wasn’t a waste.

But S&G is quite on the pricey side. I mean it wasn’t bad. But I compare it to the UK and SG is overpriced. Oh well, at least it has a pump.
