    I’m not intending to buy anything much this month toiletries-wise. Possibly a can of dry shampoo using my Boots points, but nothing else.


    Also just a reminder about the Boots recycling scheme https://boots.scan2recycle.com/terms-and-conditions. Unfortunately it does not appear to be UK wide but mainly focused on the South so I hope some will be able to make use of it.

    Good to see you back. It’s been a little quiet here lately.
    ive also seen a makeup recycle box in Tesco. It seems that the scheme is being run by Maybelline.

    PP list:
    Jordan Samuel Skin The Performance Cream 60ml
    Lush Fairy Dust Dusting Powder
    Batiste Dry Shampoo & A Hint of Colour For Blondes 200ml
    Lush Peachy Bath Bomb
    Lush Goddess Bath Bomb
    Lush Validation Shower Bomb
    Lush Unicorn Horn Bubble Bar
    Lush The Comforter Bubble Bar
    Only managed to UU two items off my PP list. I've not had the time to have a bath as when I get home from work I'm drained and can't be bothered to run a bath or I'm drained from work on my days off. The rest will be carried over to November. 

    My scores for the month:
    UUs - 10
    INs - 11 

    I like to keep a spreadsheet with everything I buy and what I paid for it. And it's quite large and extensive and shocking really. But my stash grand total is going down. So it's a good sign.

    One week left. The body lotion and cleanser are now stored upside down and I feel they will be finished this week. The toner is low but probably has 2 weeks left in it.  The Skin Repair tube is light.
    i did throw away the Colourpop lip scrub because I just kept getting a sticky residue on my face with it.
