I don't know if you've noticed but all of this week's posts have featured products photographed in my bathroom…and this is no exception. It's a good job I cleaned it at the weekend isn't it?! I've actually discovered it's a great place for product photos because it's white and it gets a lot of light through the window. Will have to remember this for the future!

Graham's Natural Shampoo with Manuka Honey*

I don't tend to try a lot of natural/organic product for my hair but I guess these are probably the best types of products to use. I was recently sent this shampoo and the conditioner and thought it couldn't hurt to give them a little try. The shampoo contains natural ingredients suitable for all hair types and it also contains zero parabens. All good.

It's also great for people with sensitive scalps. I have pretty sensitive skin so I would imagine my scalp is pretty sensitive too. I have suffered in the past with my scalp and while I've not really noticed much different with my scalp after use, I do notice that my hair is left lovely and soft as well as smelling great thanks to the manuka honey! The shampoo is a bit pricey at £14.99 but if you're into your natural products then I'd definitely recommend giving this a go.

Aussie Shower Gel Fresh Mate with Eucalyptus

I have been looking for the new Aussie shower gels for ages. I'm a huge fan of the shampoos and picked up the Eucalptyus gel as well as the Ginseng one and both are perfect for giving you a zesty wake-up call in the mornings.

Sometimes with scented shower gels they can leave my skin feeling a bit itchy due to the non-natural chemicals/ingredients but these were absolutely fine and the scent definitely lingers long after you've left the shower.

Soap & Glory Drama Clean 5-in-1 Magnetizing Micellar Makeup Remover

I haven't used a Soap & Glory product in ages but I was looking to repurchase my No7 Make-up remover, which is half the size of this and comes in at £8. The S&G one costs just £6 and is double the size so it was a no brainer really. I've yet to use this as I still have a tiny bit of my No7 one to finish up but I did give it a quick sniff and it smells amazing, of cucumber and peach. Delicious. Will definitely be dedicating a full post to this so keep your eyes open for that one.

Trevor Sorbie Volume Shampoo

Stupidly I realised I've featured this already in my favourites post so I'll keep this short and sweet. It leaves hair soft and with a bit of bounce, pretty much what it says on the tin!

Phil Smith 'Big It Up' Shampoo

I finally found the Big It Up shampoo in Sainsburys of all places! This gives my hair great waves of volume and leaves it feeling lovely and soft too. It contains soy proteins which are ideal for fine/flat/flyaway hair, which is everything my hair is. Would highly recommend!

The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Body Sorbet

I recently went a bit mad for The Body Shop's new Fuji Green Tea range. I picked up the Bath Tea, featured here as well as the Body Sorbet. I picked up the body sorbet not only for a scent but I thought the word sorbet sounded 'kinda fancy for a moisturiser/shower product.

I've been using this every other day or so for the past two weeks and I'm lovin' it, lovin' it, lovin' it! It not only smells amazingly fresh and zingy, which is perfect for your morning shower, but it's also super duper rich and thick and melts beautifully into the skin, leaving behind soft, clean feeling skin with no horrible residue. The scent also lingers long after you've got out of the shower too, which is a huge bonus.

It can also be used outside of the shower like a moisturiser! Also, a little tip for you…pop your sorbet into the fridge before using for an ultra cooling exprience.

£8 isn't a bad price for the size of the product and you only really need a little bit of product to create a nice lather. Little did I know there is a whole range of body sorbet's available so I will definitely be trying some of the other scents in the future.

Do you love tea so much you could bathe in it? Well, now you can...kind of.

I was so intrigued about this bath tea when it started popping up on a few blogs so I picked up a tin and thought I'd give it a try. If you've tried any sort of bath salt or bath bomb (particularly Lush bath bombs) with any bits in then you might find them a tad annoying, as I do. I don't really like sitting in the bath being able to feel the gritty pieces on my skin so this bath tea is perfect as the blend of bath salts and real green tea leaves can be popped in the bath tea strainer (sorry, infuser!), which can then be dropped into the water or hung thanks to the handy hook. Ultimately you're left with a bath that has no horribly floaty bits in and most importantly, no mess and leftover bits in your bath once the water is drained.

I personally think the bath tea is a touch of genius and a great play on what bloggers love most, tea! The Fuji Green Tea scent is so refreshing and zesty and I used this with a whole variety of other bubble baths and scents yet it was this one that I could smell the most. It would be just as good used on its own too.

For £12 you really do get a good amount of salts/leaves, which come in a packet inside a tin, perfect for keeping them clean and tidy in the bathroom. The tea strainer is an extra £5, which isn't too pricey as you'll be able to use it again and again and again!
