Buy the best you can afford


When I set off to the shops today to by some new handwash I remembered my Auntie Bessie telling me when I was about 11 that you should always buy the best quality product that you could afford. At the time this didn’t go down too well with me. She had just given me a second hand hockey stick for school and I was disappointed because I wanted a new one. The second hand one was a top brand and would last a long time but I just didn’t appreciate it. If she had bought new it would have had to be a cheap brand as that was all she could afford.

These days I get the point –
which is a very long way to tell you that I bought Champneys  Spa Treatments Citrus Blush Hand Wash today. It was half price £3 instead of £6 in Boots. I could have bought a cheaper brand for the same price….well you get the point. Thanks Boots, Champneys, and Auntie Bessie!

  1. I love Champneys! I bought their Spa Indulgence Distant Shores Bubble Heaven a couple of months ago and fell in love. My baths felt luxurious. So when I went back to go get more products (I had to be picky though. They’re more expensive over where I live.), I was so disappointed to find they were discontinued in my area.
    Do you use anything else from Champneys? Which line from the brand do you like best?


    1. I’m guessing from your post that you’re from the US? perhaps you can get the brand easier on line. I haven’t used any other lines by Champneys but now I’ve heard what you say about Distant Shores Bubble Heaven I’ll look out for it and give it a try.
