The first I used was The Sanctuary Body Lotion which is a classic favourite of mine. I can't get enough of The Sanctuary's signature smell and this is a moisturising lotion which is thick enough to use in winter as well as summer. I managed to use up the whole bottle in about 2 weeks!
I got Clarins Eau Dynamisant Moisturizing Body Lotion in a bargain gift set I picked up in the sales last Christmas, but hadn't got round to using it until now. I have to say, I really loved it - I usually hate body lotions sold in fragrance gift sets, as I find they're often an afterthought and terrible quality. However, this was a complete exception. It was wonderfully softening and it absorbed really easily into my skin. I think this would be even better as a summery moisturiser, as it was quite light. However, I'd look into getting this again. Also, a little went a long way with this one and it took a while to use it up.
Finally I had a little, unidentified pot in my stash with barely anything in it. I think my Mum gave this to me ages ago, and I'd used some of it before - there was hardly anything in the pot. On reading the label, it appeared that this was a glycerine filled hand cream rather than a body cream. Nevermind, I'd counted it in my original post, so I used it on my elbows and knees and it was used up in a single application - now why didn't I do that (literally) years ago?!
|Most of these are now used up!|
I'm going to ignore the fact that in December 3 more moisturisers found their way into my stash (and this was pre-Christmas - there's far more now). I didn't buy them, so they can be counted when I tally up my Christmas and sales beauty stash. I'm going to restart this challenge in the new year with the aim to totally clear my stash!
Thanks for reading! xx
