shampoo
conditioner
body wash
body oil
salt scrub exfolliant

So that is 5 once I toss the empties.

Oooooops forgot 1 bottle Shower Shine & 1 home made cleaner of rubbing alcohol & water!

So, that brings me to 7!

Good thing my bulldog shares my shampoo & conditioner!

Uh, four different shampoos, a bottle of mild facial cleanser, a bar of glycerin soap and one disposable razor. I read that it is good to alternate shampoos if you wash your hair daily.

Only one (shampoo) but I do live alone. When I was living with someone, it was a much different scene -- shampoos, conditioners, cleansers, oils, lotions, etc.

1 bottle shampoo/conditioner combo (H&S)
1 bottle body wash (Softsoap shea butter *)
1 bar soap (Dial gold)

* If some of you (guys too) despise smelly perfumy body wash and like a simple moisturing product that goes a long way, this is an excellent brand.

Four, if you only mean the stuff in liquid or tube form in the shower/bathtub and not counting the ones stored in the cabinet. Don't ask what's what, it's all very mysterious.

Reminds me of the couple I know who may have saved their marriage when she moved her stuff out of the master bathroom into the closest guest bathroom. When I visited them, he was still puzzling over the vast amount of time she spends in there. I am curious also.

ME~1 bottle of the cheapest shampoo (cost .89) and small soap from Hilton Hotel

Her~Too many of each, but it must work as she looks much better and smells great all of the time.

Two...
  • 1 bottle of Suave Naturals Tropical Coconut shampoo (almost used up and placed upside down to get the last bit out)
  • 1 new bottle of Suave Naturals Tropical Coconut shampoo just like the old one but unopened
My soap is just a plain old fashioned bar of Ivory soap. It isn't in a bottle.

Shampoo & Conditioner: Pureology (expensive but lasts ages); soap is Dove.

I have a stash of small soap bars courtesy of Westin, Sheraton, Delta, and other hotel stays, which are used for handwashing.

I have a dispenser for shampoo, conditioner and bubble bath to avoid the bottles but still manage to have couple. The facial cleanser is mine but hubby is responsible for the rest.
