Hello and happy Sunday. Last week I showed you what I always take in my travel bag, and so I thought it would be fun if today I shared with you what happened a few months ago when I decided to use only hotel toiletries for a while. Let’s get started, shall we?
I’m one of those people who basically collect stuff from hotels, but one day I realized I had a ridiculous amount of shampoo, body lotion, and other products I just wasn’t going to use.
Body lotion is a total must for me. My days never end without body lotion, so I decided I’d test two hotel brands. Not only did I feel like it didn’t work, I felt that my skin was even drier after I applied the lotion. I wasn’t happy at all.
I also tried the conditioner, and if you know me, then you know that this is a product I don’t always use. Again, I felt like it didn’t help my hair at all. It wasn’t softer or easier to brush.
Because I only wash my hair during the weekends, I’m extra picky with my shampoo. I need a product that really cleans my hair. I don’t care about anything else as long as my hair is clean when I step out of the shower. None of the three hotel brands worked. Indeed, I think in all three cases I had to use the full bottle and still left feeling that my hair wasn’t really clean. That’s a horrible feeling, by the way.
The soap is the only product that I can say worked the way it was intended to. I felt clean, and although I didn’t like the scent of the body wash, it had a nice texture.
After this experience, I realized that hotel toiletries don’t really do anything unless you’re in an extreme situation and need to shower urgently but didn’t bring your own stuff. I won’t collect these products anymore because I feel they’d be going to waste, and I will continue to take and use my own products.
In the comments let me know whether you use the hotel toiletries, and your thoughts on them.
Love, Miss Camila
