    My LUSH sale order has come.  Bit miffed that, for a company that's meant to be big on sustainability, the box was big enough to house a microwave and I managed to fill two carrier bags with polystyrene!  Anyway, Ins: Gift set containing 6 bath bombs, gift set containing Tick Tock and Roar bath bombs (war has broken out as to who is going to use the Roar one!), 2 x Jingle Bells bath bombs, 2 x Polar bear bubble bars, Elfie Stick and Santa bubble bar (can't remember it's proper name).
    I have also UU a perfume that I got for Christmas.  It was a trial size of the Atelier Cologne Love Osmanthus.  MRM bought me a bottle of AC Clementine California and said he got this as GWP.  It is gorgeous and I have made a request for the full size for my birthday next month.

    Shame about the packaging, it is so easy to package with paper tape and compostable (or is it ible?) chips.

    Too Faced Shadow Insurance - I have some eyeshadow primer on the go but this one is my favourite so I bought it whilst on sale.

    Some  health & well-being UUs:

    Aldi Hair Vitamin gummies - WMBA, not sure if it's made a difference as I've only used it for two months and using it in conjunction with hair growth oils from The Ordinary. Won't buy again for awhile as I have other multi vitamins in stash to use up. 

    Holland & Barrett aloe vitamin tablets - WMBA, acid reflux has improved but not sure whether it's due to dietary and medicine changes.

    Superdrug Dead Sea clay mask - WNBA, better suited to oily skin.

    Running low on face cream but will wait until I've finished it before ordering to reduce stash.

    I’ve only just spotted your spellcheck. I had to research it and your spelling is correct. Lol. Nearly had to correct someone’s email at work this week as he said he was sorry “to cause incontinence”. I hope he meant inconvenience otherwise I suppose it could have been some kind of threat.

    More UU

    TBS Chamomile Cleansing Butter. HG. Replaced
    Balance Me PHA Mist. Neither liked the fragrance of this (too earthy) nor the nozzle. Had to spray it onto cotton wool pad to use. Think it came in a subscription box. WNBA.
    First Aid Beauty cleanser. This was pretty awful.  Didn’t like the fragrance (smelt like putty). It foamed which I don’t like though it didn’t dry out my skin. If you get it in your eyes it burns. As it didn’t affect my skin adversely I persevered (because I’m mean). Think it came from an advent calendar. WNBA.
    LUSH Beauty Sleep face mask sample size. There was enough for 2 applications. WNBA. The fragrance was lovely (lavender) but it stung/burnt slightly on application which was unpleasant.
