Down One Bottle!

Maybe it's just me being weird, but I find a strange satisfaction in finishing a bottle of body wash.

Today, I finished the last bit of my Chocolate Fondue Tutti Dolci Creme Body Wash! I looked back through my reviews and found that I reviewed the body wash almost three years ago!

Me too. I definitely love finishing one up. Right now I'm on the verge of finishing up three of them - a Tutti Dolci Apple Torta, a BBW Temptations Pecan Passion and a Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush cake-scented one. I'll feel so satisfied for a while - but then I buy 50 more to take its place, LOL!

You're not alone; I feel the same way. Yesterday I used up the last of a lip balm and a BBW Liplicious and I was so happy. Crazy.

RE: Down One Bottle!

Whew. I'm glad I'm not the only one!

I have been trying to go through one bottle of body wash at a time, but it gets quite boring so I sometimes rotate between two scents. I finished off my full-sized Spicy Gingerbread 3-in-1 at the end of last year and I was so happy!

RE: How many do you rotate in and out of your shower

I have one that's almost finished. But don't worry there are many others waiting to take its place in the shower.

Which brings up a question, how many body washes do you have in your shower or, like me (since hubby hates clutter) do you rotate through?

Right now, I'm at 4. Which is better than a month ago. I think a rotation of 7.

I have 7 in the shower. We have a window in our shower and it has a windowsill I can set things on. I also have 2 shampoos, 2 conditioners and 2 scrubs in there. All available space in the shower area is taken up by products! I rotate about 12 body washes. I do get sick of them and put them away for awhile and rotate others through.

Oooh great question! I get to spill all the gory details of what's in my shower! I have one of those shampoo dispenser thingies that hangs on the wall. It has 4 chambers and in that I have what's left of my BBW Divine Cherry Pie body wash, my Glittery Gumdrop body wash, some Wen Tea Tree conditioner, and the 4th one has my generic Biolage conditioner. Then I've got 3 small bottles of BBW Temptations in a wire basket hanging on the wall. I think it's apple, iced tea twist, and orange freeze. On the shelf that's built into the wall I've got my LUSH Snow Fairy and a bottle of BBW Dreamy Chocolate Mint. Oh and hanging from the towel bar are two of those cool bottles with a hook that are filled with BBW strawberry daquiri and one other yellow one that I forgot the name of. Those bottles are from Avon Naturals but I rinse them out and reuse them as I love that they hang from their built in hook. I've got tons of soaps and other stuff in there too that I won't bore you with. LOL

Yeah, great idea on the Avon bottles. I do recall they have those cool hanging bottles.

Right now I have a small shower caddy and it sucks. I had another one but one of the shelves actually bent from the weight of my bottles. Ha!

Oooh, I miss having a window sill. At my old house in the boys bathroom (whose shower I used a lot simply cause it was better)it had a window sill which I loved to use. Plus when I remodeled I had them build in a shelf in the shower itself. That was cool. If I ever do my current shower I'd certainly conisder doing that again.

RE: How many do you rotate in and out of your shower

I used to rotate through four bottles but it cluttered up the shower and there were complaints ... so then I took one away. Haha! But now since I'm trying to finish bottles, I only have one in the shower and will bring a second one in if the main bottle gets tooooo boring. :-)

RE: How many do you rotate in and out of your shower

I keep two body washes and two scrubs in the shower at all times... when I want a change, I just rotate one out. At the moment I have Body Shop Almond shower gel, BBW Iced Tea 3-in-1, Body Shop Africa Spa Salt Scrub, and philosophy Gingerbread Man scrub.

ha, I've been there. So now I keep them in the cabinet and just bring in the shower what I want to use for the day. Besides I found hubby actually liked some of my stuff and wasn't using the standard grade (read: cheapo) body wash I got for him.

At the present time I'm trying to use up my BBW Pecan Pie and my present favorites are TBS Japanese Cherry Blossom, TBS Bergamot, and Carol's Daughter Almond Cookie. I find now that I'm getting in the mood for spring and less in the mood for "food" scents and have a desire to get some summer-y scents in the rotation. The Japanese Cherry Blossom is great but I need a few "drink" scents (read: BBW Temptations!)

I've been curious as to what the TBS Japanese Cherry Blossom scent is like but am afraid to go take a sniff test for fear that I'll like it and want to purchase it! Is it like the BBW one? I do like that one, though it had to grow on me.

I definitely find myself gravitating towards the floral and citrus scents as Spring creeps closer.

:-)

RE: How many do you rotate in and out of your shower

Right now I have some reject stuff I'm trying to use up in my shower- I really just don't like it, but I hate to waste so I'm trying to use it.

Uhhh...I have Gojo in my shower! Um, it's not mine though- it's my husbands- he washes his face with it and I find it utterly disgusting. Other than that, I have 1 janky BBW scrub, 2 face washes, and one shower gel, plus shampoo, conditioner, the Gojo I spoke of, and some Head and Shoulders- which is not mine either.

My stash is so thick it has now moved into the area under the sink.

No it's not like it. It's really more floral than BBW which I consider more like a floriental (you now, floral with a bit of spiciness).

I really love it. It's a soft scent and quite nice.
