Using shower gel as bubble bath or shampoo? Vice Versa?

Do you ever use your shower gels as a bubble bath, or even a shampoo, and similarly your bubble baths as shower gels or shampoo, and even your shampoo as a shower gel or bubble bath? I ask becuase tonight i used a nice smelling Black Cherry & Nutmeg Avon shoiwer gel as a bubble bath as i wanted a bath not a shower, and it worked really well, created lots of bubbles. I then decided i'd also use it to shampoo my hair with and again it worked a treat! So do you find yourself using your toiletries for other uses than what they were intended, and if so what?

I find that liquid bubble baths are interchangeable with shower gels, but I don't use either as shampoo unless it's actually a 3-in-1 like Philosophy makes (I love the falling in love fragrance). For me, they're too drying as shampoo, but shower gel certainly makes a good bubble bath! I always used to use the Body Shop shower gels as bubble bath.

I have a Philosophy all-in-one in the Remember fragrance, it's gorgeous and really does work well in the bath, shower and on your hair. I find that shower gels can be drying on your hair if used often, though i get greasy roots anyway so maybe don't notice it so much.

I only use shampoo as shower gel sometimes, but not the other way around since it dries my hair out a lot. Sometimes when really tired I tend to do it without thinking but if I don't find any conditioner then my hair looks like straw for the rest of the day :P.

LOL these days I don't pay attention on what I'm using. If we run out and too lazy to buy any of these items, I'll just use whatever there is. I have been using my shower soap as face cleanser too :) I just thought well it smells nice and it cleans my face so why can't it clean my face too? it's all my skin anyway

I do this all the time. Especially if I'm not too keen about a certain scent of body wash, I use it up quicker as a bubble bath:) I also LOVE Lush's shower gels because they work great as shampoo!
