Do You Prefer Baths or Showers?

A few weeks ago it was bath time for my 8-year-old nephew. Not surprisingly, he was obstinate with the whole "I'm not taking a bath" routine. He declared with certainty, "Baths are for girls!" Oh, really?! This got me to thinking. I have girlfriends who think that baths are gross — and I beg to differ. So tell me, what's your cleansing preference? Are you a bath or shower kind of gal, or a little of both?

Showers - in and out and you feel super clean. I hate what happens to my fine hair when I have a soak in the tub, so much so I have a fast shower straight after a relaxing bubble bath (which makes me feel pretty water wasteful!)

I love having long hot showers, but I'm limited to ten or less minutes a day because of a lack of water where I live. So when I want to relax, or when I'm in need of a real scrub I hop in the bath.

I voted shower because I have a horrid, tiny, shallow bathtub. If I had a tub I would probably shower in the morning to get clean, then a bath to relax in the evening.

Showers for cleaning, baths for relaxing and winding down :) ... speaking of which, I just moved into a house with a nice big bathtub and I can't wait to have a looong hot bath sometime soon! Maybe I'll buy something from Lush to put in it...

''To those who rinse after their bath, wouldn't it make more sense to shower first? I often have a quick rinse in the shower (while my bath is running), before getting in the bath. That way I don't feel like I'm soaking in my own filth.''Well, since I was born I bathe to get clean, so now I'm still doing it. I never felt like I was soaking in dirt or anything gross. I don't think I am that dirty. I feel like soaking in water.I just relax some minutes in tub. Then when I'm finish I wash and rinse. Usually If I use the shower and wash myself, I don't feel the need to take a bath after. Unless, I'm preparing a special relaxing bath where I exfoliate or wash my body, get into a shower and then run a bath with essential oils, candles, musics, etc.

I only bath to relax, not to clean myself.

Showers are for getting clean, baths are for chilling out. I'm much more of a shower girl, because they're faster and I really hate the wrinkly prune feeling I get from baths.

I hate showers. There's just something about them that rubs me the wrong way. I love baths, and that's pretty much all I take. Occasionally after a bath, I will turn on the shower and wash my hair, but that's it. Baths only!

I love love love... taking baths...bubbles baths are fun, oatmeal baths are even better. But then I get so grossed out b/c my baths usually last like 45 minutes so once I see that I'm sitting in filthy, grimy water I have to stand up and rinse off with the shower.... haha so I guess I always take a shower in the end.
