If you’re a VIP member at the local five and dime don’t hide behind dark sunglasses, sing the discounts you always get for quality health and beauty products from the mountain tops sans your frames! Wendy Williams does it on her show at every turn about the Family Dollar chain of discount stores and so should you.
Overspending for basics like shower kits makes absolutely no sense unless, well there is no unless because there’s just no need - please believe this coupon lover. While personal upkeep is a must and the foundation of this very blog, I certainly don’t want you going broke while you do it here go this post on shower kits that you can acquire for the paltry price of $20 or less.
On a scale of 1-5 with 1 being the best, Bonne Bell Starburst Original Fruits Smacker Shower Collection (price varies, walmart.com) and Bodycology Toasted Vanilla Sugar Shower Gel & Foaming Bath/Body Cream/Fragrance Mist Gift Set (price varies, walmart.com) share the top spot of #1. Bonne Bell because it’s for little girls and whatever gets the little leaders of tomorrow excited about the primping process is an absolute ‘do.’ And besides the collection of shampoo, shower gel and Lip Smacker smells like candy. Bodycology gets a 1 because the vanilla scent stays with you beyond your stint in the shower and doesn’t overpower your senses throughout the day. The bonus is the inclusion of vitamins E, C and shea butter in the body cream to really moisturize your skin.
Falling right in the middle with a solid #3 is Skinnygirl Gift Set Margarita Bath Kit ($15, walmart.com) only because HKI thinks the margarita scent should be less subtle and more intoxicating and the shower gel could be slightly thicker, but if softly-scented anything is your preference and gel thickness doesn’t concern you, then you’ll be in good company with this ex-New York Real Housewives shower kit which also comes with a body scrub and body lotion.
