Oh hello!

MajestyRoyal Thu 15-Mar-18 17:44:48

Lovely! A new thread and I have just got an empty. L'Oréal shampoo, was okay but wouldn't buy again as they test on animalsenvy now onto a Schwarzkopf one which apparently makes my hair like silk. Smells amazing but not sure it can heal my dry strands.

IPokeBadgers Thu 15-Mar-18 18:44:05

Can't believe we are on to thread number 8!

LanguidLobster Thu 15-Mar-18 19:43:39

Yes I'm in, I think I have nearly enough for the rest of the year. Some of my stuff is in storage so I'll do a recce then join in properly smile

ememem84 Thu 15-Mar-18 20:36:59

Me neither - between us we’ve probably got enough to stock a shop.

DD had a tub of Lush hair something or other and a small BodyShop showergel with a bit left.
I used both up today just to get them into the recycle bin grin.

I have a Waitrose Lime&Basil bathsoak that will be used tomorrow ,

Ooo a new thread!
I've finished a few bits but I'm absolutely shattered this evening and can't remember what they were!! Oops. I'll update when I remember blush

Thanks for the birthday wishes on the old thread btw. I didn't cave and buy the elemis but I might once we've moved! Trying to strictly limit what comes into the house until we are moved!!
My lovely mum bought me a box of Chanel beauty goodies including their gardenia perfume (sample) which I'm looking forward to trying as I've heard good reviews.

Can I join in?

thenewaveragebear1983 Thu 15-Mar-18 21:07:16

Oooh can I join? I’ve been doing this but didn’t realise it was an actual thread!

So far I’ve been using up all the oddments of shampoo and conditioner. Plus I’ve had a moisturiser called ‘get waisted’ which I bought on a whim and have now used up, and have moved onto another one.

I have a lot of handcreams, where I’ve had them in Christmas gift sets, so I’ve dotted them around the house by all the sinks, plus one in my car.

I have sinned...bloody airport purchases - I will confess all tomorrow after sleep

DragonNoodleCake Thu 15-Mar-18 22:42:53

Hello new people!!? grin

applesandpears33 Thu 15-Mar-18 23:02:32

Signing in. I've decided I'm not putting on enough makeup. It lasts me forever.

Experiment627 Fri 16-Mar-18 07:22:21

Welcome to all newbies!!!!

I have decided to chuck the Maybelline Master Contour v-shape duo stick contour and highlight: I do like the contour shade but now cannot get it out without grabbing the not liked highlighter. Life is too short!

MajestyRoyal Schwarzkopf test on animals

ememem84 Fri 16-Mar-18 08:14:21

Alert!! Feelunique now sell Brazilian bum bum cream. Woohoo!!! I’ve read about this. Must. Not. Buy.

LanguidLobster Fri 16-Mar-18 10:32:04

em I've never tried it either, people go berserk for it

Sarahjconnor Fri 16-Mar-18 10:58:43

I had a sample of that bumbum cream and it was full of glitter which I hate - itchy itchy. Smelled lovely thou smile

I finished 2 of the minis from my xmas advent calendar - sleep cream last night and a mini mascara this morn.

Strawberryfield12 Fri 16-Mar-18 10:59:06

A new thread! No empties to report, although I did finish an eye brow pencil at the beginning of the week. It was from the advent calendar and on my Easter list.

RiskIt4Biscuit Fri 16-Mar-18 11:00:36

I can’t stand the smell of bumbum cream. I tried it in Selfridges and I was not impressed. It’s just a body cream...

I found some Kevyn Aucoin on offer (sculpting powder in light, sculpting wand in medium, eyeshadow duo in fog/cool smoke - loving them all so far) and have been through the airports (Clinique moisture surge 200ml - not opened yet as I also got a La Prairie cream sample that I would like to use up first) as well as having forgotten my concealer, so got a Nars radiant concealer (loving this so far), so I have purchased more than I should.

All I have been using up have been some samples in satchets; Aveeno body lotion (it did what a body lotion does), Charlotte Tilbury Magic cream (not magic and not worth the price, but it was good), Estee Lauder The Smoother primer (good but very similar to the Smashbox primer and the babyskin primer from Maybelline). And some soap bars.

I have decided to back2mac some paint pots - they’ve dried in the pot so theres a gap between the sides of the pot and the product, and I have never liked the smell. My mum gave me a paint pot (she also thinks it smells odd) and lipstick to back2mac, so I’m making an effort to use up my Mac oil control lotion and a pressed powder so I can get a new Mac lipstick.

LanguidLobster Fri 16-Mar-18 11:03:37

Actually I did finish a model co pencil, but only as it the nearest thing to hand when I was on a phone call and I grabbed it to write a phone call down

LanguidLobster Fri 16-Mar-18 11:04:05

**doh, number

ememem84 Fri 16-Mar-18 12:20:01

What does bumbum cream smell like? Tropical? I’m even more intrigued now I know it’s glittery!!

Will it make my bumbum nice and pert?

RiskIt4Biscuit Fri 16-Mar-18 14:16:43

As far as I'm aware, it's supposed to smell of pistachio and salted caramel.
I found it similar, but more sickly than Laura Mercier's Pistachio range.
