Weekly Recap 6 – 12 Mar 2017

Hi there! I hope everyone had a good week. I’m sorry I haven’t been able to comment on everything I wanted to comment on and to get back to everyone who got in touch with me. This is because my company no longer allows people to work from home. I enjoyed my two homeworking days every week because I could start at 6:00 and finish at 14:00 or I could start at 16:00 and finish at midnight – as long as the work was done, everything was fine. And I’ve always (ALWAYS!) been one of the top 5 guys and gals in the entire department (120 people), so you can be sure I always made the most of my homeworking days.

But the good (homeworking) days are over and I have to get up between 5:30 and 6:30 (depending on the ‘shift’ start) every day now. I know many people have it worse, and I know I’ve been lucky that I had the chance to work flexibly in the past. However, I’m not looking for sympathy, I just wanted to explain why I haven’t been in touch with you, my fellow blogging buddies, this week.

Alright, now let’s get to the actual weekly recap. Here’s what I’ve been up to on my blog this week.

Reducing My Oldies Stash – 100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Raspberry Bubblegum Shower Gel

upload-1Hi there! A few days ago I paid my local Superdrug store a visit. I was shopping for essentials (no frivolities, I promise). However, I did spend some time looking at the make-up and skin care products and sniffing shower gels and shampoos.

I also saw a cute and promising limited edition shower gel – one that I knew I had in my stash! And when I got home I made an effort to find this shower gel. And I found it! Now meet Superdrug Raspberry Bubblegum Shower Gel!

First of all, when I picked up this shower gel, all I saw was BUBBLEGUM. So I was a little surprised when I realised that it was a raspberry bubblegum fragrance.

Anyway, I tried the shower gel right away – and I think it’s OK. It does smell like raspberries and it does smell like bubblegum. It’s not a very memorable fragrance, but it is pleasant nonetheless. People who love sweet and fruity shower gels will certainly like this one!

Whilst I don’t think I’d repurchase this shower gel, I’m happy to finish my bottle. Like I said, the fragrance is pleasant after all. 🙂

If you’re interested, Superdrug’s Raspberry Bubblegum Shower Gel is a limited edition shower gel. I can’t find it online, but it was 99p for 250ml at my local Superdrug store – that was just a few days ago. This shower gel is suitable for vegans – and it’s certified cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo)!
