Hi there! Some of you may remember that I used to buy toiletries, skin care and make-up in bulk. But I’ve stopped doing that a few months ago. Since then my approach to shopping has been 3 out / 1 in, which is going surprisingly well, so I’m sticking to this approch until (at least) the end of the year. 🙂 OK, I haven’t done much shopping lately, and because of that I’ve built up some “shopping credit”. So I decided to treat myself to a few new products. Now let me show you what I bought!
I found this Baylis & Harding Beauticology Donut Shop gift set at my local Asda store. It was £6 and it contains the following full size products: Blueberry Glaze Donut Shower Crème, Frosted Sprinkles Bath Soak Crystals, Vanilla Sugar Donut Body Butter. Yummy!
I also found lots of cute trainer socks at Primark. I bought a set of 3 pairs of Pokémon socks…
… and a set of 3 pairs of Care Bears socks. No, clothes and accessories have nothing to do with the 3 out / 1 in policy / approach / thing. However, I still wanted to show you that I bought these super cute trainer socks. 🙂 OK, now let’s get back to the toiletries and the beauty products that I picked up from Boots and Superdrug!
I bought 2 Carex shower gels. Carex used to do hand soaps and hand gels only, but they’ve recently launched shower and bath products too. These Carex shower gels were £1 each (special offer, Boots). I also bought 3 Boots Extracts Body Sprays – 2 mango sprays and 1 vanilla spray. These sprays are £3.50 each, but Boots ran a 3 for 2 promo, so I spent £7 in total for these 3 fantastic body sprays.
I found this super cute Caolion O2 Sparkling Purifying Soap by accident. I wasn’t looking for it. I didn’t need it. But it was £4 (Boots) and it looked cute… I wanted it, and I bought it! I also bought 3 more B. Confident Hyaluronic Acid Facial Spritzes. They’re normally £7.95 each, but they were on special (half price), so they were £3.95 each. However, Superdrug also ran a 3 for 2 promo on selected skin care products, so I paid £7.90 in total for these 3 body spritzes. Fantastic value!
I bought 3 more items from Boots’ Essentials collection – a Cucumber Facial Scrub, a Cucumber Facial Toner and a Cucumber 3-Minute Clay Mask. I’m really looking forward to testing these products!
I also bought several Carex Bubble Gum hand washes (Superdrug, 89p each) and several Carex Bubble Gum hand gels (£1 each, Boots). But these products are essentials, so I always stock up when they’re on special. 🙂
Any comments on my beauty and cutie haul? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for reading! 🙂

Hi there! If you follow my blog and read even my most random posts, you know that I am obsessed with Carex Bubble Gum hand wash.
Now imagine my delight when I found a hand gel with the same fragrance last week! 😀
OK, this is only a hand gel. I realise this. But seriously, I love this bubble gum scent so much. And I bought a bottle for my husband too!
So yes, Carex Fun Edition Bubble Gum Refreshing Hand Gel is my product of the month. At the moment it’s 99p only at Asda and Superdrug, so there’s no excuse not to buy it.
And don’t forget to buy the Carex Bubble Gum hand wash! It’s the most delicious hand wash I’ve ever had. I love it that when I wash my hands with it before I go to bed, I can still smell it when I wake up in the morning.
If there is such a thing as The Ultimate Happy Time Hand Wash, then this is it!

Hi there! Now this seems like one of the most random posts ever, but… there’s a but. If you have not tried these Carex Fun Edition hand washes already, you really need to. Now! I picked up the following three scents: Cola Bottles, Chocolate Orange and Bubble Gum.
The first one is Cola Bottles which smells just like Haribo’s Cola Bottles. Whilst I don’t like the Haribo sweets, the hand wash is absolutely delicious! Then there’s Chocolate Orange. What can I say? It’s just as delicious and it smells incredibly authentic. Yummy!
And then there’s Bubble Gum. This is the most delicious hand wash I’ve ever had. I also love it that when I wash my hands with it before I go to bed, I can still smell it when I wake up in the morning. If there is such a thing as The Ultimate Happy Time Hand Wash, then this is it!
I wish they would do XXL Bubble Gum hand wash bottles and also make a body wash, hand cream, body butter and a body mist with this exact fragrance too. Carex, I know this is a fun edition, but please, don’t discontinue this product. Ever!
Carex Fun Edition hand washes are available in 250 ml bottles for about £1.60 to £1.85. However, at the moment Asda sells them for 87p each!
