Elaborate expense

I was really lucky and won a prize where I stayed in a v expensive hotel. Anyway to the point, the shower gel in the hotel was amazing, I am not one to even normally think like this, it obviously was made for me. It smells so bloody good, like what a freshly showered person that has just walked out of the best Beverly Hills hotel should!
I have just used my last drop. I contacted the company and got some samples.
Anyway I looked it up to buy it and it's £25!
We are a one wage family atm and I have to convince OH it's worth it. I do not spend much on myself ever; although have just discovered a serum that I had a freebie from that is doing wonders for my skin and now want to buy (have a debs card from bday I can use for that). I don't buy much make up and when I do I shop like maybelline foundation and get freebie mascaras, shampoos and a lot of moisturisers from my hobby etc (have not bought a mascara for prob 4 years) so really a small amount on beauty.
Should I go ahead and buy it? or is it a waste of money

It's literally money down the drain

What is the shower gel?

Toooldtobearsed Sun 24-Apr-16 20:47:32

Buy it.
We always put ourselves at the bottom of the list for treats, make this your time. £25 is not going to bankrupt you, so go for it and enjoy it!

BUT, tell me what the name is so I can indulge too☺

I'd definitely buy it.

AgathaMystery Sun 24-Apr-16 20:49:12

Yep. Share the name please.

This is a nice something that you can do for yourself every day. What a treat! Go for it!

It's Babor Energising Lime and Mandarin. It seems ridiculous and know its a silly price. It is lovely tho mmmmm sniffing myself

If food is bought/bills paid etx and children cared for I say go for it and say it's an early bday/christmas/anniversary thing

And tell us what it is so we can get some

What serum has worked wonders on your skin?


witsender Sun 24-Apr-16 20:52:19

When you say one wage family, how comfortable?

I'm struggling to comprehend being that excited about a shower gel, but I get excited about seemingly dull stuff too so I know the feeling!

It will be gone before you know it, I think it's a bit pointless. If it was something that you could make use of for a long time then I think it's worth it.

Go for it. But keep it in your bedroom so nobody else uses it. It's these type of small pleasures that make what can sometimes feel like a daily grind of everyday life, that bit better.

Pinkheart5915 Sun 24-Apr-16 20:58:14

If you can afford it treat yourself, I know I do

Lulukat Sun 24-Apr-16 20:59:11

Laska5772 Sun 24-Apr-16 21:03:25

£19.50 on babor site plus postage ..but stock up and buy 3 then no postage .(definately worth it if it makes you feel that good I reckon. Life is short )

Lulukat Sun 24-Apr-16 21:03:54

Iguessyourestuckwithme thank you! i'm gonna get it and see how long it lasts.
I will also be hiding it from everyone else grin

missymayhemsmum Sun 24-Apr-16 21:06:36

Make sure that your mum/sis/dh whoever know that a bottle would always be a welcome birthday/ xmas gift too!

Patapouf Sun 24-Apr-16 21:07:28

I would, but I'm a spendthrift.

Will it bring you joy? If yes, it's worth it IMO

Pixilicious Sun 24-Apr-16 21:14:31

Following so I can remember the shower gel for pay day!
