What’s an ‘everything’ shower, you ask? We’re sure you know it all too well; we’ve all had those overly ambitious in-shower routines when we think shaving, shampooing and doing a face mask all at once seems like an excellent idea. Bet it’s all coming to mind now, right? Practicality aside, we must applaud the efficiency of squeezing everything into one, bathroom-steamed routine.  

 If ever there was a POV worth oversharing, this would be one for the beauty books so here’s an inside scoop of what our team of Editors can’t do ‘everything’ without: 

“The ‘everything’ shower is one thing but can we talk about the build up to it? I’m one of those people that saves all their hairy tasks for one long shower — waxing, deep conditioning and hair masking are all on the same agenda in my bathroom. Before I psyche myself up for the three-two-one-pull session, the Megababe Space Bar Detoxifying Charcoal Underarm Bar helps me prep my skin in-between waxes. Made with nourishing avocado, sunflower and olive oils alongside brightening vitamin C, this clarifying charcoal-infused bar gently sloughs away dead skin cells and purifies my pits — hair or no hair.” – Precious, Junior Copywriter   


“The vital component to my ‘everything’ shower is Living Proof’s Restore Repair Mask because it’s like hair rehab for my curls. Boasting a creamy formula that restores my stressed-out strands leaving them smooth, soothed and shiny, what better time to allow this deep conditioner to work its magic while I crack on with the rest of my routine a.k.a. head-to-toe exfoliation.” – Triffy, Senior SEO Copywriter 


“An essential part to my “everything” shower? Easy: Kopari’s Body Bumps Be Gone exfoliator. The gentle-yet-effective vegan body scrub is powered by a 10% AHA cocktail of glycolic (5.5%) and lactic (4.5%) acids which work to loosen dead skin cells and refine the surface of my skin. Keratosis Pilaris, begone.”  – Alice, Senior Copywriter  


“It’s happened again. Thirty minutes before heading out the door and I’ve still yet to wash and shave my face or pluck my brows… It’s time to call in the big guns, aka Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant. Right before shaving, using a small amount of this life-saver on my face and body leaves my skin baby-soft and stops pores from becoming blocked or irritated, giving me a little more time to quaff my quiff. Truly my most versatile ally.” – Niall, Copy Assistant 


“Spolier alert: you cannot look after the skin on your face and neglect the skin on your body. I am obsessed with Osika’s Universal Hyaluronic Acid serum that I apply liberally over my soaking skin ready for the next step — moisturiser. Silky smooth, super hydrating and has even helped with my ‘chicken skin’ (IYKYK) , this serum isn’t just for my ‘everything’ shower, but more like my everyday shower!” – Rina, Junior SEO Copywriter
