    UNTESTED v Waitrose

    3 for 2 Simple Kind to Skin Moisturising Facial Wash

    http://www.mysupermarket.co.uk/asda-compare-prices/Facial_Care/Simple_Kind_to_Skin_Moisturising_Facial_Wash_150ml .html?TrackingCode=AQYGAAE.P3gw5TV11k-8b4Ojd8isIw

    Simple eye make-up remover

    http://www.mysupermarket.co.uk/asda-compare-prices/Make_Up/Simple_Conditioning_Eye_Make_Up_Remover_125ml.html ?TrackingCode=AQYAAAE.V8IHDph-rUCPupL5XHq85A


    Both 2 Asda v 1.56 in Waitrose. Should work out at 74p each

    https://www.waitrose.com/ecom/shop/browse/groceries/half_price/toiletries_and_beauty/skincare


    The OGX range of hair stuff is in 3 for 2, 6.99 in Asda and 5.00 in Morries.
    Would work out at 2.17 each which is a good price if it is something you use.


    John Frieda on 3 for 2, Asda 6 should compare to sainsbobs 4.00 each. Would work out 1.60 but everyone probably stocked up when 1.00. On offer in Sainsbobs until 16th January.

    http://www.mysupermarket.co.uk/Shopping/FindProducts.aspx?query=john+frieda&store=ASDA


    Will try and get some better pics to look at the Aussie hair stuff tomorrow - offers in Morries and Tesco 3 for 10 and Waitrose 2 for 6.00.

    Will also look if any wipes showing the offer.

    Some people sent direct to the Hospice though, so the figure's not really a true representation.

    Must admit I've donated but not 5. I have charitys which I support outside of this thread which are of a similar nature. I always give where I can especially on here when we are honouring a lovely elite friend but it will rarely be as much as 5. Hopefully that isn't seen as me caring any less but rather trying to spread a bit of help about a bit. Hope this isn't offensive to anyone xx

    louj101. I had a message left for me saying I owed you a reply . Sorry sweetheart, Ive been away to a family funeral and hadnt seen your post until now.

    Right, the freebies I collect are varied. Some get mentioned on here, others are in the Freebies section a few floors down from here. 8oots and Bedenhams can also be a good source of makeup samples and fragrance 5ml phials.

    Ive been known to use samples of toothpastes, shampoo and conditioner sachets. I fact most smallish free items. Last year I made up 2 Pamper Hampers by getting hold of 2 sdrug boxes and covered with Christmas wrapping paper. Shredded coloured tissue paper then placed items in the boxes and covered over with clear wrap. Ive deleted my photos of them but think tweets might have a picture.

    The socks were just stuffed with the same type of freebies as above but unfortunately no photos this year

    Hope the above helps you, oh I forget to say. Body shop are good for freebies in store but they do not keep very long so these you could ask for early December if for Hampers/stockings etc or anytime you are passing really.
