Feels like a pretty classic Wednesday topic.
Do you have set favourite brands or even specific flavours, tastes etc? Do you just go with what’s on offer on the shopping day? Do you have a spending limit you won’t break or is self-care and pampering worth the cost?
Toiletries is a funny word too eh.
I like Harry’s razors but I feel like I’ve really fallen for some advertising crap there.
Most I’ve ever spent on an individual toiletry item was £8 or something on some Nivea moisturising shaving balm as a stop gap until my prescription moisturiser arrived.
I didn’t notice it was £8 until I got to the till, where the server (used to seeing me buy nothing but cookies and reduced stuff) said “…you do realise this stuff is £8 a bottle, right?” and I was so affronted by his suggestion that I couldn’t afford it - this was a while ago and they may well have been right because I was paying through the nose for a 1 bed flat in Cambridge - that I said “OF COURSE I DO” because fragile masculinity.
You cleaned that mirror lately?
Shaving wankers: since The Body Shop stopped selling their maca root shaving cream I’ve been at a loss. Any recommendations?
I am EXCLUSIVELY Original Source shower gel. Don’t trust people who aren’t.
Nivea deodorant (Cool Power, I believe)
Dove creme shower gel (Mrs F likes it so we buy it, it’s not unpleasant)
John Frida (?) Shampoo (just steal Mrs F’s, not enough hair to buy my own)
Cornerstone shaving subscription razor and shaving cream
Oral B Whitening toothpaste.
Talcum powder to prevent chafing at work when it’s sweaty.
Shift it now! When No Deal Brexit hits that stuff will be basically worthless thanks to the over-abundance of goo.
Alberto Balsam Shampoo/Conditioner combo 4 LYF
'er indoors used to use this so I’ve had a go when mine has run out and I HATE IT. Can barely get it to lather in this stupid country’s dickhead hard water and there’s a musty base note to the smell that meant I never actually felt clean after using it.
L’Oreal Men Expert deodorant (when on offer). Everything else: whatever is on offer.
Exactly, I need all the help I can get.
