    Revlon Colourstay Gel Envy Diamond Top Coat 7ml - this was a good top coat, most of which was used by DD.

    Hawaiian Tropic Aftersun Body Butter Lime Coolada 200ml - I stupidly bought 8 tubs of this without smelling it thinking it would be lovely like the coconut one, it isn't.  First off it isn't a butter like the coconut one it is just a cream, secondly the smell is not lime it smells like ozone to me, lastly the double walled pots are so wasteful and mean I can't recycle them easily.  I have one pot left now and was going to wait before I opened it but have decided to just get straight on with it seeing as I'm using a shower gel that doesn't have a matching lotion.  WNBA

    I've also used up two Body Shop scented oils in my oil burner and a Wax Lyrical Orange Blossom candle which burnt well but had no scent at all.

    UU Cornwall Soapbox body wash. I thought this had gone off as the smell was awful. Used it to wash my makeup brushes.
    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!

    In May I mentioned QVC sent me expired Pixi make up, the replacement they sent was also expired (June 2020). They told me to dispose of the make up and I got to keep the brushes it came with! The make up seems fine so I will use it for the summer and then dispose of. 

    Got Silly George Liner Bond, I’m pale so like a fine liquid eyeliner and am struggling to achieve this.. might have to find a clear eyeliner. Kinda wish I’d gone for a lash perm kit instead, but worried about safety / lash damage though, has anyone tried them?

    Just had a thought about the testers, if the likes of Boots don't let you test are they going to accept returns?  Seems like they have to really.
