    Huge thanks to saintscouple and all the MoneySavers who contributed to this thread for their amazing work.

    Now back to the original post …

    Seeing as the old thread was some 18 months old, I thought it best to start a new thread to keep the finds valid.

    A few bits and pieces from Trongate, Glasgow: Clean & Clear Advantage Clear & Soothe Daily Scrub 100ml (includes Aloe Vera - assume it may also have salicyclic acid like the foaming wash does - didn't buy it as I'm not keen on scrubs) and Simple Eye Make-up Remover 125ml.

    From Union Street, Glasgow: Regime London Beauty Complex (Vitamins & Minerals) 15 Day Supply, Forza Diet Multivitamin x 15, Fat Metaboliser x 15 or Appetite Suppressant x 15.

    Edit: The Bepanthen Baby Moisturiser is also in Union Street, Glasgow - saw some earlier.

    As for the Brasso/Silvo - bought a Brasso tin earlier in Argyle Street, which scanned at 2, but an assistant put it through as 1 when I queried it.
    Her English wasn't good and the store was busy, so I had the feeling she was hurrying me along (though that's an assumption on my part). Can't say for sure that this is supposed to be 1.

    Maybe it is 150ml, I'm going by my zooming in on the image - I didn't buy one! Can't see any 100ml variants online, which suggests I've made a mistake. I'll try and have a better look tomorrow.

    Edit: It does include Salicyclic Acid, going by this review http://www.theedgeofbeauty7.com/2013/11/clean-clear-advantage-clear-and-soothe.html

    Swisse Women's Ultivite Multivitamin x 14 Tablets (One-A-Day) from Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow:

    Found the Clean & Clear Scrub in Union Street, Glasgow - sure enough, it's 150ml (woops).

    Union Street (at the tills) also has rather large plastic pots:

    The "square" Grey pots are in a 2 pack and 1 (22cm at the widest point), also round and in Grey or Terracotta colour.

    The larger scalloped-edge pot is 31cm at its widest point and comes in Grey or Terracotta colour too, 1.

    Saw the aforementioned Simple Eye Make-Up Remover in the 2 section in this same store, so it may have been a rogue few bottles in the 1 section yesterday in Trongate.

    Edit: Some makeup things I forgot to add from Sauchiehall Street - Union Street has some of them too:

    Revlon Eyeliner Pencil - 06 Aubergine (I thought it was Brown, d'oh!! Will give to my niece. It was also in a Teal-ish colour),
    Revlon Photoready Kalal Matte Eye Pencil - 306 Matte Espresso
    and a selection of Tigi (Tony & Guy brand) Decadent Lipstick(s), the shade below is Finesse, which is a pinky-red - there were a few lighter pinks on display.

    Edit: Should have pointed out there was another Forza supplement pack next to the Swisse Ultivite Multivitamins: Energy Support x 15 capsules.

    Forza has a website here - eg, their Fat Binder (can't see Fat Metaboliser that Poundland offers) capsules are 12.99 for 30 capsules https://www.forzasupplements.co.uk/products/fat-binder

    Wonder if the Forza offerings are special ranges for Poundland?

    Spotted the Dove in my local store but decided it was a bit of a gimmick, but bought a 100ml (same size!) tube of Cuticura Intensive instead. No Clean & Clear though.

    Now for the bargain element: there was a 50p shelf with various items including scented candles in tins, 2-packs of fragrance oils and fragrance sheets in the same range, worth buying. Also some Jane Asher ice-cream scoops and cake slicers, some metallic "wall art", table runners, dishcloths, twin packs of place mats and 6"x4" rimless photo frames, and some Christmas-y paper liners for cupcakes. I didn't like any of these but I did buy cellophane Christmas gift bags with ribbons (20s), suitable for packing edibles.

    I popped into a branch before closing last night and was pleased to see fruit bushes and rose bushes for sale.

    I bought 2 rose bushes (in no way the same quality as Lidl's, but I picked the best varieties I could find - large and stunning as opposed to small and prolific) which will be late bloomers to my garden, and raspberry, blackberry and blueberry bushes. Now I just need to plant them in the pots I bought...roll on the weekend. I left 11 lighter but very happy.

    Another nspa item in Argyle Street, Glasgow last night: Moisture Boosting Body Butter 200ml*

    *Edit 24th April: Trongate store has this as well.

    and I thought these looked interesting - no doubt a knockoff of those Bahlsen Choco Leibniz biscuits - Choco Biscuit

    unfortunately I didn't buy them and can't see the weight in grams on the packet, but they're twice the size of the Bahlsen equivalent. Have a few cut-price Easter Eggs to work through, so may buy them next time I'm in!

    The choco biscuits above are delicious but there are only 12 biscuits in total in the 2 packets - sorry have recycled the packet so can't remember the weight.
