    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.

    Dowman belt buddy (a good soft toy make from past experience) (to put on your (children’s) car seatbelt) - possibly only couple left in North Street, Brighton, in the car related section and a few in Haywards Heath in the toy section (didn’t actually look at car section so could have also been there).
    Brighton only had elephants, there were also bears wearing police hats in Haywards Heath.
    Both stores they were hanging next to the shelves, so could be elsewhere/multiple placings.

    Edit: in wire baskets in some branches, also tigers and guardsmen costumed bears (the police one above also has a police jacket on)

    Lots of the baylis & harding beauticology items in Epsom store today in mango & mandarin, coconut &lime and strawberry and something I can't remember. Body butter, scrub, handcream and bath/shower creme. I got the coconut body butter to try, smells nice but not as thick as other butters I have used before.

    My kids got a small blackboard with chalks that they are enjoying playing with.

    I noted my local Poundland selling glue guns, the glue sticks can be purchased separately. I assumed they were hot (ie required batteries) but was disappointed to see that both were marked at £2 - making it a non-MSE purchase of £4. A gun with a small supply of glue priced at £1 would have been much better value. Better still is my craft glue, which has lasted for years.

    Two quick things from Union Street, Glasgow:

    A Boy, A Bear, A Balloon By Brittany Rubiano, RRP £3.99

    and Pantene Micellar Cleanse & Nourish Foam Conditioner 180ml (I liked this, got a sample of it a while back, sister doesn't, for some reason).

    £1 each.

    PS: Forgot to say, this store also has the Fry's Orange Cream 3 pack bars in stock, discussed recently on HUKD

    From Argyle Street, Glasgow:

    Manhattan Fresher Skin "Breathable, Natural Finish Foundation, Shine-Free Finish, Does not Clog Pores" SPF15, 25ml, in 30 Soft Porcelain and 33 True Ivory shades.

    £1.95 at Fragrance Direct https://www.fragrancedirect.co.uk/manhattan-fresher-skin-foundation-25ml-0096149.html (more shades on there) but I think they're the German equivalent of Rimmel - all the Manhattan makeup I've picked up over the years has been decent.

    Review in German/English: http://glamzeit.de/2016/11/23/manhattan-fresher-skin-foundation-review/

    If you buy from Cosmetics Fairy (I used to, when they had Airspun Loose Powder in stock, been a while since I've had a browse!) they sell it for 99p in 34 Soft Beige http://www.cosmeticsfairy.co.uk/manhattan-fresher-skin-natural-finish-foundation-soft-beige-34.html

    From Trongate, Glasgow (the hanging strip-type cosmetics) Max Factor Eyefinity Smoky Eye Pencil - 2 colours in one pencil, a lid at each end - 02 Black Charcoal and 02 Brushed Copper.


    There's other shades of eyeliner pencil available too. This Google Images picture seems to give some indication what's out there.

    Also saw Maybelline Liquid Eyeliner but didn't buy one, as they were in Green or Purple!

    Good news! Twin Peaks is BACK from the 5th October.

    From the Facebook and Twitter Poundland links..

    New shape, same great taste…Twin Peaks is back for good In stores on 5th October.


    From the Poundland video, the Twin Peaks' packaging seems the same, the new shape looks like this (so this may explain why they disappeared again)

    I'm sure, though, as before, I will be able to pick mine up easily (as I did during the first wave of hype and some were saying they were selling out - surprising, maybe, as Glaswegians like chocolate more than salad). I do genuinely enjoy them, though.

    Edit: The Sun link above also says there's a White Chocolate version on the way, from October 12thApparently Fruit And Nut Twin Peaks is on the way a week later!

    They were by the door in my local poundland. Full display of them, everyone walked straight past, myself included. Those pictures are definitely staged

    I picked one up today and have tried a bit with my afternoon coffee. It's quite big, so it gave the illusion of value for money at the point of sale.

    Plus points: it's sweet, crunchy and tastes vaguely of honey.
    Minus points: the chocolate itself is not v nice.
    Conclusion: I can live without it.

    From Union Street, Glasgow: Infinity Selected Arabica Whole Bean Instant Coffee 60g*, £1

    Minecraft Tips And Cheats Annual 2019, £1

    And yesterday, in Trongate, Glasgow store, Baptiste Batiste Hide Me Root Concealer For Light Blonde Hair, kits - £1

    Trongate also has a pair of Soft Silicone Earplugs £1 (not sure if any good, but boyf usually buys the pink/yellow Howard Leight earplugs).

    *Though someone on HUKD says you can get the Infinity Coffee 100g for £1.39 at Poundstretcher - £1.50/100g at Iceland, according to My Supermarket.

    Edit: Forgot to add, also from Union Street, Bourjois Brow Design Brow Mascara, 6ml, shade 03 Chatain.​ Currently £7.99 on Superdrug!

    Edit: The Infinity Whole Bean Instant is HORRIBLE (in my opinion, may not be yours) - at least I only bought a small tub!

    I saw these near the tills and actually thought they were After Eights, but after a double take realised they weren't. I looked twice because the boxes are good sizes, they looked like 300g to me.

    Any feedback on the white chocolate Twin Peaks as yet?
