    One UU this morning:

    Paula's Choice Resist Anti-Aging Ultra-light Antioxidant Serum 5ml WNBA, simply because it has dimethicone in it. I had to use this on my body as my face hates dimethicone.

    Aveeno vanilla & oat yogurt moisturiser sample - so much better than the original! WBA

    Superdrug pampering bath - WNBA, foamy but feels cheap

    E45 shower cream 200ml - WNBA uneconomical, smells like plastic

    Lavera Sensitive hand cream mini - used as body cream, smells lovely, WMBA

    Thanks for the new thread sstevo. I'm in.



    I've just returned from a few days camping in the peak district, took toiletries decanted into small bottles but no uu unfortunately.


    I had a no buy July and will do the same for August.

    Stash total = 204
    Less is the new more :D

    Hi Everyone,


    Still going quite slowly for me but I've become a lot less attached to my toiletries - have started to give a few things away here and there and I haven't managed to accumulate any more.



    UU
    Dove Purely Pampering Nourishing Body Oil 150ml - Love this stuff - felt luxurious and it did make my skin very soft. Have a few more in the stash still to use.
