  • Hello, popping in to report my last UU for the month.

    Finally UU my S&G Clean on Me, I swear its taken about 18 months! WNBA (I doubt many of us would ever buy it again!) but sadly have another in the stash. I might use it as handwash to save it cluttering up the shower again

    Another LHJ, Boots Mediterranean hand cream, this lurked in my hand bag for a long time but finally finished it up using it at night. WNBA, smelled far to lemony

    Also gave away 2 lip gloss sets to a friend who is having a car boot sale at the weekend, 13 lipglosses out in one go!

    One small In, my Maybelline free sample, I got 125 in Nude Beige but it looks pretty dark in the tube so will have to try it out.

    See you all in December! (ooh I'll get a choccie from my advent calendar tomorrow!)

    A sort of UU ... This was a mystery shower gel I was sent to trial as a comparison product with one that launched on the market, that I also got sent to trial. It was cluttering up the bathroom as I only used a third, so got a new life as kitchen hand wash.
    It blended perfectly with the small amount of hand wash that was left. Hmm.

    WIB? isn't quite applicable, as on reading the label, this gel was somewhat different from the gel that was marketed. A little voice at the back of my mind tells me it was handwash...

    Hi ladies. Just totted up my UUs against INs and it's been a very good (although boring) month.

    12 UUS against 7 INS. The INs were:-

    Batiste -
    cotton wool
    Elemis pro radiance wash
    Liquid soap
    shampoo
    Maybelline BB cream

    All items bought to replace UUs. Think this is only the second time I have cracked this challenge. See you on the December thread.
    Back for the No Buying Toiletries challenge. I pledge to only buy when I run out of a product that is not already in my stash no matter what wonderful emails land in in my Inbox or threads I read on MSE re: glitches!
