This Week's FBFF Questions

As regular readers of my blog will know every Friday I participate in Fashion Beauty Friend Friday. This weeks questions are beauty related. You can check out the other entries at ModlyChic's blog (

1. The move to do away with soap, shampoo and deodorant has been growing in popularity in the last year. What are your thoughts on this trend?

I personally couldn't live without shampoo, deodorant, shower gel  and body wash.  I would be completely paranoid about body odour If i gave up my deodorant I would be completely paranoid about my body odour especially during summer. Without shampoo my hair would smell really bad - i'm a smoker so shampoo is a must have product so my hair doesn't smell of cigarettes. I never use soap though because it dries out my skin I usually use a moisturising body wash to retain the softness and a luxury cleanser on my face.

2. Be honest how often do you wash your own hair?

I wash my hair atleast 3 times a week with pantene shampoo and I always use conditioner. I also use an intensive conditioner once a week and a scalp treatment weekly too. I actually enjoy washing my hair and love fancy treatments :)

3. Have you tried to go the more natural route by forgoing shampoo?

Nope I've never tried going without shampoo and I probably never would. I love how my hair feels after I wash it. And I would miss that too much.

4. What products do you use and have you ever gone with more organic alternatives?

I do have some organic bathing products in my bathroom. I'm a big fan of Neals Yard who use natural ingredients and are organic. I use their cleanser and moisturiser daily. It smells lovely, is kind to my skin and gives good results. To be honest  don't use it because it's organic I use itbecaue of the results it gives.

5. What about that daily shower? Would you forgo that opting to shower
three times a week instead?

No I don't think three times a week would be enough. After running around all day after three kids  use a bath/shower to both get clean and to relax. I enjoy my bathroom routines alot.


  1. I tend to wash my hair every day, but it only takes me 2 mins as I barely have any. As for foregoing a daily shower, I'm with you on that I just couldn't do it.

  2. I agree with so much of what you said...I could never go without deodorant and daily showers, especially in summer. That's crazy!
