I was sorting through my cosmetics and thought "There's nothing here that I would go out purposefully to buy again"

Face-creams, cleansers I've bought over and over. I've ordered new ones when I've got near the end.

But not cosmetics.

What makes you want to buy repeatedly?
(Might steal ideas grin )

Op did you say not cosmetics?
If not, I am really keen on hydralauron at the moment. It is expensive at £25 a tube, but lasts for a good 4months and makes such a difference to my skin, as soon as I run out I think I'll hold off buying for a little while and then I find I really need it.
That's it really!
