So, we’ve already revealed our full July ‘Beauty Treasures’ line up... And, of course, we sneak peeked two products – a KNDR bronzer and the Aurikah Tropique mist – at the beginning of the month too. 

But there’s one more product all Glossies received this month that we love so much, we just had to tell you more about... say hello to the stunning (and perfectly themed!) FOAMO shell shower steamer! 

We’re guessing you’ve all used a bath bomb before, but have you heard or, or even used, a shower steamer before? If not, we’re here to help... 

What Is A Shower Steamer? 

Put simply, a shower steamer is basically a bath bomb for your shower. It brings with it all the same benefits – but also allows you to enjoy them without the time and water bill costs running a bath incurs! They’re super easy to use and, once a steamers essential oils have been released, will allow you to enjoy a gorgeous aroma that’s sure to help you relax and unwind. 

How To Use A Shower Steamer 

Place your shower steamer by your feet whilst you wash and it’ll fizzle and bubble away below you. Once the humidity hits it’ll release an amazing scent into your bathroom that you’re sure to love! 


How Long Do Shower Steamers Last? 

A shower steamer will keep on giving you the gorgeous aromatic benefits it’s been designed to offer until it has completely dissolved. Meaning if you’re not one for ridiculously long showers, it’ll last you a little while. 

Want our top tip for making a shower steamer last longer? Place your steamer at the opposite end of your shower to the shower head. This means it’ll avoid being directly hit by the powerful flow of water and therefore not dissolve as quickly! 

3 Reasons To Add A Shower Steamer Into Your Washing Routine 

We think shower steamers are an amazing addition to our morning (and evening!) routines. These are the reasons we think you should try one too... 

  1. They’re practical – We’re sure you’ll agree that there’s not always the time to both run and enjoy a relaxing bath. Even if you’re jumping in and out of the shower in a matter of minutes, a shower steamer will work wonders! 
  2. They smell incredible – Packed with essential oils, once the humidity hits your shower steamer a gorgeous scent is sure to be released. Think creating your very own spa-like aromatherapy room in your own bathroom! 
  3. They’ll help you de-stress - Essential oils are used in steam rooms and saunas for stress relief and recovery purposes, and a shower steamer will offer the same benefits as it dissolves.

I'm someone who loves getting glammed up, but I feel like I never have enough time. Frequently running between work, the gym and seeing friends means my makeup routine is quick and often touched up on the go. Therefore, beauty products that serve as multi-purpose are perfect for me - a blush that works for cheeks and lips is a must in my makeup bag!
