Off to Budapest on Thursday for a short break. I was in Superdrug today grinning like a loon at the scaled down bottles of Original Source when I nearly disappeared up my own bum with excitement at the miniature John Frieda Frizz Ease range. Maybe it's because they make me feel like I'm playing with dolls house bathroom products but I just adore them 😍

Yanbu! Yep love this too (and secretly want to get a dolls house!!)

Glad I'm not alone. The John Frieda tipped me overboard, I put Lulu's son through college single handed the money I've spent on that 😊

Haha I was just doing the same in Boots today, stocking up for a hospital stay. Love the little packs of wipes as well.

No I love them too. I have many many tiny disney toiletries from the hotel we stayed in last year. My dolls house is a Disney castle

Me too. Love a miniature

I also adore miniature toiletries. I'm on a buying ban as have too many

Massive chuckle at "nearly disappeared up my own bum"!

Buy one if each, then refill the bottles from the bigger, cheaper versions.
Whilst not traveling, out them on a nice shelf as a little homage ton your travells.

What's the best one you ever found? Mine is volumonising hair mousse, it was reduced to fifty pee!!!!

My L'Occitane advent calendar gave me TWENTY FOUR DAYS of tiny toiletry joy. They're all in my bathroom looking unbelievably cute.

Greenteandchives Mon 13-Feb-17 21:56:25

I am a sucker for anything like this, but they are shocking value so I refill the bottles now from full size where I can. (I know it's not quite the same....)

Lol @ this thread.

Yup there's something about it but what a rip off!

NorksAreMessy Mon 13-Feb-17 21:57:09

Me toooo.
Dentist appointment today so I had to pack a toothbrush and a teeeeeny tiny tube of toothpaste in my handbag.
Happy mad woman in Morrisons loo cleaning teeth? That was me

Magzmarsh Mon 13-Feb-17 21:57:49

Whooooaaaaa at the advent calendar, I'm getting me one of dem next crimbo 🤣

BingBongBingBong Mon 13-Feb-17 21:59:37

I love this thread 😂 I also love tiny toiletries. I don't know why! Maybe because they're really cute? Such crap value for money but soooooo adorable.

Our dentist has a bowl of midget Mcleans on the reception desk FOR THE TAKING!!!!!

Doobigetta Mon 13-Feb-17 22:03:08

Me too. Especially the tiny cans of Dove deodorant. I find it very hard to resist those.

Our GP surgery had tiny tubs of Aveeno handcream for the taking last week... I took 2.

I'm obsessed. I do tiny toiletry maths.

It's cheaper to buy tiny toiletries in boots and superdrug than to buy a set of tiny empty toiletry bottles in boots and superdrug.

You'd actually be cheaper buying the weenie shower gel and tipping it out to get a mini bottle than to buy a mini bottle.

Madness!

I LOVE A MINIATURE SO MUCH! Not just toiletries, anything miniature, notebooks, pictures, napkins, I love miniature everything!

Magzmarsh Mon 13-Feb-17 22:10:57

Zapp you are my people 😃

I get teeny tubes of toothpaste at the dentist, but I prefer Sensodyne.

I gave the teeny tubes away to the Friends of my local hospital.

Then I bought teeny Sensodyne for a weekend away. grin

YADNBU OP. The refillable tubes and bottles are cheaper than toiletry receptacles.

Leatherboundanddown Mon 13-Feb-17 22:20:13

I FLIPPIN LOVE THEM. Actually, I have a bit of a thing about mini versions of things in general it brings me serious joy. Currently loving such things as mini packed lunch cathedral city, teeny cans of drink, mini pepperami, pots of fromage frais. Etc etc etc. Obsessed.

I love tiny toiletries too smile I've made me, DH and DS a tiny toiletry bag full of tiny toiletries each so that if any of us are going away for a few days we can just grab them. I've also made a really cute (or tragic depending on your point of view!) little basket of tiny toiletries for my spare room. I love the previous posters idea to refill them from the full size versions, that had never even occurred to me!
