    Cherish those you have in your life because you never know when they won't be there anymore.

    No matter how you feel, get up, dress up & never give up.

    Other foods and drinks that contain a sweetener called sorbitol (such as sugar-free gum or slimming products) or a type of sugar called fructose (such as fruit juice) can also cause flatulence. This means chewing sugar-free gum can cause flatulence from both the sweetener and swallowing air.

    Bubbs you need to check you're not actually drinking too much water. It can be as bad for you as not enough.

    Evening Elite friends

    I did stay up to watch the election results to the end, well within one result. Had a sleep from about 7 till 11 this morning then worked at charity shop this afternoon courtesy of a Monster energy drink That's me after the energy drink



    I see I am going to have to start collating the results as they come in for this new glitch too. Seems to be some new interesting products in the glitch. Will start it off tonight, so please post details of any you find, as I will put details in post 20 again

    So far I have this - but can someone check it out, especially how much items work out at

    John Frieda v T works out at £2.07

    2 for £9 in T so buy 6 so it picks up this price
    3x John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Colour Protecting Moisturising Conditioner (250ml) £18.00 £13.50
    3x John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Colour Protecting Moisturising Shampoo (250ml) £18.00 £13.50


    L'Oreal Paris Men’s Deo v T works out 62p each

    Loreal Men’s Deo £2.20 £1.50


    Yardley Deo Spray works out 68p each

    Yardley Deo £2.00 £1.50
    Buy Blue or Pink topped one (Yellow topped one does not compare)


    Nivea v t – works out 52p each

    3x Nivea Refreshing 2In1 Cleanser & Toner (200ml) £7.50 £4.50


    To be tested:

    Yardley Sprays £2 each but £1.50 in T so £2.05 for 3 if it works.

    Mens loreal face stuff

    Dove Men’s Deo

    Dove Bath Cream

    So! sprays

    John Frieda again and 2 for £9 in t – check more products

    Olay loads of creams

    Shock Waves

    Arm and Hammer Whitening Toothpaste £2.50 each v S at £1.50 would make it 52p each

    L'Oreal Paris Men Expert Hydra Energetic Anti-Fatigue Moisturising Lotion (50ml) v T


    As Bubbs said - we need different people testing different products and posting results

    Bubbs should be exempt, she has already tested more than her share, risking making a loss.
    ANYWAY, will keep her quiet for 30 seconds

    Is there more than one Loreal Deo, as I know if there is, I WILL get the wrong one. Also, how many could I get in one shop please keeping a reasonable APG? TIA (Cant believe I was at adsa for the first time in weeks today, and now might have to go back as I am on my last can of deo.
    Edit: I dont mind testing the dove deo if no one else has, can I just put one can in with a loreal shop?
