    I meant that since I posted that the peeling had started on toes and balls of feet now my heels had started peeling (2 days after the peeling started elsewhere). I didn't mean that the heels had been peeling since the beginning. However - peeling started on 4th in some areas and other areas have started peeling on 5th and 6th. The instructions tell you not to pull the skin off but the temptation is too great to give it a helping hand.

    Argyle Street, Glasgow must be a very large branch, and maybe something of a flagship store?

    I look at these posts with some degree of envy - none of this stuff ever seems to filter down to the smaller stores, and I rarely ever find anything worth buying these days.

    Poundland used to be great (I'm talking 5+ years ago) but the buyers seem to have lost the knack (or maybe the price point's wrong) and the stuff these days in the smaller stores seems to be just a pile of junk not worth buying.

    Argyle Street was an old Woolworths - though Poundland is only on one floor rather than Woolies' two floors. It is Glasgow's biggest store (as far as I know) but there's a smattering of much-smaller stores all around the city centre, I try to visit them all.

    This store also stocks Pep & Co clothing smaller stores don't have the space for (I'm guessing).

    It's very much an, it depends, situation. I find things I don't see in Argyle Street elsewhere, and many of the same items are in the little stores. All very random, as is the way with Poundland.

    Argyle Street is typically open till 10pm (9pm on Sundays!) so it's much easier for me to catch it when it's open!

    Obviously I have no idea what Poundland stores stock nationwide, so I post on here in the vague assumption they have similar items - judging by my own experience.

    Online-wise, stores such as poundshop dot com and onlinepoundshop (not sure of others, those are the two I've purchased from - but postage can be hefty) has some things Poundland also sells. OneBelow isn't quite as similar at the moment, as Poundland vs Poundworld was, but I think that'll change.

    (Edit: Feel I made a similar comment ages ago, so apologies if I'm repeating myself).

    PS: Really nit-picking, but I wish Argyle Street hadn't done away with the trolleys at the entrance, I miss them! Jamaica Street around the corner is a hotbed of trouble with warring teens, so that may be why - and the ne'er do-wells that wander around the city centre in general.

    Foot peels

    I saw these in the shop and see you have been discussing them on here. I have been using them from years. I love them its really gross satisfying seeing the skin come off. I use one around every 2-3 months, some brands are better than others. I got a poundland one to try I am gutted I won't be able to test it for at least a month, I hope if its good they are still selling them so I can stock up.


    If anyone is thinking of trying them -some tips:
    soak feet in warm water before hand
    coat top of foot in Vaseline so the peeling liquid does not go where you don't want it
    Put sandwich bags over the included plastic 'socks' as liquid can leak out
    put on a pair of old cotton socks to keep everything in place, then over that a pair of thermal/slipper socks to keep the heat in.
    Leave for what is says on the packet
    wash off
    Do not use any moisturiser on feet until after peeling has finished, your skin may feel tight this is normal and means it is working soon after the skin will start to 'crack' and the peeling start.
    You should not peel the skin yourself but its very hard to resist


    I have had good ones peel after only 1 day and some that don't even peel at all.

    NOTE: not suitable for diabetics or on cuts / sensitive skin.

    Ok added along with some more tips I remembered. There are no disclaimers on my ebay Chinese import versions The Poundland packet doesn't say anything about diabetics which I imagnie is a big error on their behalf.

    The Derma v-10 foot masks are not easy to track down. When I looked in my local the other day, there was another peppermint foot mask (20 mins) masquerading in its place. I was not fooled.

    I also noticed a generic version of Zoflora - the large size was just 1 but it was limited to 2 scents: cotton fresh and country bouquet (or similar). Has anyone tried it?

    I found a brand of shampoo and conditioner I've not seen in Poundland before, attracted my attention as they say not tested on animals and vegan friendly. Inecto Shea shampoo and Inecto Bamboo conditioner, both 500ml - bottles look like this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Inecto-Natural-Gorgeously-Glossy-Conditioner/dp/B07N4QJT8T/ref=sr_1_7?keywords=inecto+bamboo+conditioner&qid= 1560676242&s=beauty&sr=1-7

    Not tried it yet, I just got the conditioner.

    Bars of Cadbury are usually around the 1 per 100g in Poundshops and Home Bargains - whenever I buy any chocolate items I always use that as a benchmark price. Tesco sell bars this size for 1.50 unless they are on offer. Other major supermarkets are the same. So 1 is not overpriced in comparison to all the other shops.

    Its still a lot considering the chocolate quality is inferior, and that Mondelez has a habit of mixing it with cheaper sugary diluents.

    I agree Mondelez have changed the recipe and Dairy Milk is not like it used to be in my childhood but it is still my preferred chocolate. Galaxy sticks to the back of my throat and makes me have a coughing fit so I stay away from that. Cadbury and Galaxy are about the same price per 100g when the main supermarkets don't have them on offer. I'm trying to stay away from products with Palm Oil in them but it's becoming very difficult.

    Argyle Street, Glasgow tonight:

    Heinz Tomato Ketchup 1.35kg - 2 (though HUKDers say it's often 2 in Asda and 1.89 in Home Bargains - I'm an HP Sauce girl, anyway)

    Not technically a bargain, but I haven't seen these anywhere else - Hula Hoops Flavarings 90g - Spicy, Tangy Cheese or Salt & Vinegar, 1

    Guessing this is store-specific - the lower-tier characters from the SuperHero Girls range, I'm guessing (no Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Batgirl, Hawkgirl left). Poison Ivy, Bumblebee, Katana and Harley Quinn, 6" figures, 2.
    I bought Poison Ivy

    Babies' Romper Suits for 5 - Toy Story (Woody)
    Incredibles (Edit: added picture, 19th June)
    Wonder Woman and
    Batman "My Cape Is In The Wash" (probably the cutest - not added all images but there's clickable links)
    Sizes go from 0-3 months up to 12-18 months

    360 Orb COB Robot Light "(Flexible design points the light exactly where you want it), Powered by 3 x AAA batteries, remove tab before use", 2
    bigclive discusses it on Youtube here

    Teacher Gifts, Cards, etc, display:

    Top To Bottom, Left To Right:
    "Thank You Teacher" Gift Bags, "#1 Teacher" signs, "#1 Teacher" Rosettes
    All sorts of cards, one design is 2 for 1 on the bottom-left of the shelf
    "#1 Teacher/You're The Best" Reusable Coffee Cups
    Ceramic Silver "Best Teacher" Stars, "Youre The Best" keepsake tins, "#1 Teacher" Notepads
    "Best Teacher" Teddies and Smiley Stars (soft toys)
    There are Chocolate Oranges and Turkish Delight boxes underneath but these are often in Poundland.
    Clickable link here

    (Near the entrance) 1 Dove Shower Gels (for women) Hand Washes and Dove Men Care Shower Gels, 1 (can't see the mls, though)!

    The roses I bought from Poundland a few months ago have come to bloom, and are just stunning. I have an orange Dutch Kronenbourg from a few years ago and that's just getting more beautiful every year.

    So much joy from just 1
