    Another 3 INs from the B**ts No 7 glitch :p sorry but I can't help it, only £1.25 for 2 tinted moisturisers, this time got handcream with a SPF as always aware that the condition of your hands give your age away, so to get a hand with a SPF is a good idea :T
    Life is a coin, you can spend it anyway you wish, but you can only spend it once.
    Go as far as you can see, and when you get there you'll see further.

    Have 5 Ins and 5 outs
    2 batiste - needed and were on BOGOHP
    face powder from Poundland - needed and thought I'd give it a go for a quid (much cheaper than my usual MAC!)
    No 7 bronzing pearls and s and g kabuki brush - got this on the glitch and was going to be given money back so added a meal deal in!


    UU
    Hair dye (Nice and easy Light auburn) x 2
    Sachets conditioner x 3
    I'm not really wasteful, just have very long hair! These are HG for me, would cry if they discontinued them!

    UU:

    3. L'Occitane Immortelle Precious Cream 15ml - probably WNBA, nice enough but the smell took me a while to bear and no huge change in my skin. There are others I like better at that price. Also, no need to buy face creams any time soon!

    4. No 7 P&P Eye Cream 7ml - WMBA, especially as this lasted sooooo long - I kept thinking it was nearly finished, but this tiny tube did me about 2 months I think!!

    UU'd two things this morning, a blackberry jam shower gel (no idea of brand) and a bottle of contact lens liquid. :j
    Since I don't buy the lens liquid individually (but I do stash it, just because they send too much!) I think it makes sense to only put 50p away for it. Does that sound reasonable?

    4.Nip Fab pistachio body butter, small tub from glossybox- WNBA, if I applied this before bed hubby hated it, said it smelled like belvita biscuits!
    5.sachet of L'oreal conditioner-WBA if full size on offer.

    Have recently found out that I'm pregnant so keep googling loads of products to see if they are safe to use. Just opened S&G righteous butter-rave reviews for its stretch mark preventative measures!

    Sofababe - I tried to check her feedback on ebay but she has it all as private (defeats the object rather) so you can only see the percentage. It is way too easy to receive items then claim for your money back imo.

    I have a uu

    Clarins Eau Dynamisante - 30ml - WBA, love it and have a full size in the stash for later.

    Took a spin to Enniskillen last night which I do once or twice a year. Live in Ireland but toiletries, detergents, cleaning products etc are much cheaper in Northern Ireland. So I buy a lot of these at the same time and they do me for months on end.

    So plenty of INs to add to the list, but they will all be used over the coming months:

    Schwarzkopf Live Glow XXL Pillar Box Red Hair Dye
    Garnier Skin Toner 200ml
    6 x Colgate Plax 250ml
    2 x Elvive Shampoo
    2 x Alberto Balsam Conditioner Apple
    2 x Alberto Balsam Conditioner Pomengranate
    4 x Garnier Deodorant 250ml
    2 x Herbal Essences Coconut Shampoo 400ml
    1 Batiste Dry Shampoo


    On the upside, I didn't buy anything for the stash that I had multiples of already.

    I'm in for July, thanks pickle for starting us off.



    I have phases too, hair is my current one and nails were the last one:rotfl:.

    Itzy - that is very shocking, we are supposed to be an intelligent species but are hell bent on destroying everything around us it makes no sense.

    I am wondering if anyone can help with some advice on an ebay problem I am having. At the beginning of June I sold two makeup bundles to the same buyer, I posted them the day after they paid and marked the item as despatched. Two weeks later they got in touch to say they hadn't received the items, I offered the postage receipt (which I am surprised I still had after two weeks) they didn't respond and opened a case against me which ebay have now found in their favour. They have received a full refund and I have to pay it back. I am fuming - anyone had a similar experience? TIA

    Ebay always finds in favour of the customer, sellers can't even leave neutral or negative feedback. I have complained about this directly to them before. :(
    Cookie, I think you're tame. :heart2:
