Why I won't buy body wash anymore...

Yep, you heard me. I am completely refusing to buy shower gel. Infact, I haven't bought any in over 6 months.. And I'm pretty sure I won't for at least a year.

I'll begin by explaining, no I don't smell and no, just because I'm not buying it doesn't mean I'm not using it.

I use it just the same as before, with a slight change and it saves me money buying it (not much I know, but still, you'll be shocked how many you may have lying around)

These are all the ones I found. I've already used 2 and I'm pretty sure I have another gift set hiding from me..

bath, bathe, Beauty, Best wash, Birthday, Christmas, Clean, Presents, Shampoo, shower, shower gel, wash, Pouf, Scrub, Body, Best wash, Money, Money saving, Money saver, Rituals, Impulse, Soap and glory, Perfume, Nivea, Korrs

How you ask?
Well, remember that occasion that just happened, okay a few months back... Christmas. Yes, you know you got some shower gel, some body wash, bath stuff maybe even a perfume set with a body wash inside. And remember your birthday when you also got some. Have you used it? If you're like me you haven't, I know you're saving it for a special occasion, right? Because it's too nice for everyday use. Oh and don't forget the mini's, I know you're saving them for the gym or a trip away, right? Time to stop storing and just use them!

In fact, I actually shamefully still have last years.. I know, I know, it's bad. They just sit in a draw or even worse in the set until I remember them or I'll use a tiny amount now and then and never get to the end. 

So my new mission?
To actually use them! I don't need to hold onto them, we get more all the time. So, I've put them all into a little tub in the bathroom (so I can see exactly how many I have left). The trick is not to use more than one a time because it takes forever to use one up, so imagine the time it'll take to use more than one up a time, double, triple, quadruple the time! So one at a time! At least then you know how much you have left and when it's time to move on to the next one.

Want it to last longer?
Use that pouf thingy you know the ones, they come in the gift sets. Put a blob of shower gel or wash onto it and rub-a-dub-dub it goes a lot further than applying straight to your body. Shamefully I used to do that and literally would use twice as much because it doesn't lather up.

  1. Interesting post, I can see your point. We all waste so much and spend a fortune.

  2. I'm exactly the same - I end up with loads of half empty bottles in my bathroom cupboard because I start using something else!
