Do you have a facial cleansing ritual? If so, what is it and what products do you use? Are you happy with them, or looking for better ones?

I use 'Sweet japanese girl' (Lush), dab off with cotton ball, follow with Imperalis moisturiser (Lush). I'm quite happy with them!

Preferred Hair Removal Method:

Shaving.

Any other products you can't live without?
The shower?
Any products you hate, or have had a bad experience with?

I had a few bad experiences with Olay- It makes my skin burn, in a very unpleasant manner. But I doubt that happens to most of you!

Introduction time~

I'm a 16 odd girl from Australia, who after years of tomboyish pursuits, has finally started actually bothering to care for her body.

Oh! And if you ever have the chance to go to NZ, you need to pick up a 'pure source' pamper pack or seven from Rotorua.

A few smells worth talking about

MMU sent me a lotion sample of Vanilla Cinnamon Crumble. I am not usually a fan of cinnamony smells, I never would have ordered it on my own. I adore it! After a few days of putting it on as hand lotion, I figured out what it smells like. You know those Pillsbury cinnamon rolls that come in a can? It smells like those, before you bake them. Not too sweet or too cinnamon, just a nice doughy sweet smell with a hint of cinnamon. Love it.

So I buy all my shampoo an conditioner from Body Perfumery because I like it better than MMUs, and they are (much) faster. The only smell I really wish they had was my fave MMU scent, Coconut Peach Custard. I decided to try to use their scent combos to make my own, and I totally nailed it! I mixed Summer Peach with Coconut Cream Pie and Lait Sucre and it's spot on. A little bit better maybe. My hair smells divine.

I have BP's hand wash soap by the kitchen and the bathroom sinks. In the bathroom it's Creme de Cassis, and it's by my sink, so Sean doesn't use it (we have a double vanity). The other night he used the one in the kitchen though, instead of dish soap like he usually does. It's Coconut Lime Verbena, and he spent the next hour sniffing his hands. He loves it and next time I order, he asked me to get him a shower gel in it. I'm excited because this is the first time he's wanted any of my yummy custom scented products for himself.
