I was thinking of asking him to get some retin a cream as I think you can buy it without a prescription there?

What other things are cheaper that I can get him to get?

He's in San Francisco.

MINT oreos?! shock

Mint Oreos. Just do it. They're like a pumped up Viscount biscuit of old. It's not style, nor beauty, but it will improve your life!

Teint infusion foundation is a dupe for door skin air nude serum but half the price. Very sheer.

Kiehls products - someone very kind just brought me a skincare starter kit which isn't available in the UK. It's very lovely. I think everything is cheaper.

Stuff from Victoria's secret/pink seems to be cheaper - DH brought DD a school bag rather than anything more complicated though.

Mint Oreos are amazing and are £7 (!!!!) in tescos imports bit, there are other lovely flavours too, mmm

I've told him about the oreos. If they don-t appear I will be devastated now.

Food wise it's different M&M flavours: peanut butter, mint, raspberry and dark chocolate, pretzels, and my personal favourite: almond. My kids insist on bringing home PopTarts (this year it was Berrylicious and cinnamon bun flavours).

Uggs if you ned some.

Clothes-wise you need to know what works - I love Victoria's Secret body bras and their cotton multi-buy pants, J Crew Ts and shorts, Sam Edelman shoes/sandals, trainers, jeans, sportswear, luggage (you may need him to buy this anyway...).

We ended up bringing 2 additional suitcases back this year (mainly because my H brought 2 pairs of trainers with him, then bought another 2 pairs, and I brought 1 pair and bought another, and a buy one get one free deal on M&Ms. Plus we decided to buy a good carry-on bag while there which we ended up checking in. Plus all the other stuff we bought...).
