    I have cut it down a bit although thats hard as I am so used to drinking a lot of water that its a habit rather than a need. It has stopped me getting up 4/5 times a night though. She was not in favour of the old 2 litres of water plus other fluids recommendation.

    I spotted those Yardley Sprays in the 3 4 2
    £2 each but £1.50 in T

    So £2.05 for 3 if it works.

    Might be nice for hampers

    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 works out 62p each

    Yardley Deo £2.20 £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

    One way to see if you are drinking enough of the correct fluids is the colour of your urine, should be very light coloured, darker not good, cloudy V bad.

    Winner of the 2017 General Election is





    Laura Kuennssberg.

    She was there at 10.00pm last night. She was there when I went to bed at 4.40am. She was there when I got up again for work. She was there to greet TM going back into Number 10. She was live on the 6pm news.

    What a girl

    Andrew Marr joked that she had more energy than the Duracell bunny but I don't know if that's rude so I'll not mention it
