I always go a little nuts when I see shower stuff. I have a soft spot for nice shower gels and since they finish up quickly enough with regular use, I always tend to stock (rather, overstock) my shower stuff. So, when I finished up my current shower gel, instead of hopping out to buy another (as I’m wont to do) and in the spirit of shopping in my stash, I looked in my shower gel collection to pick out one bought over 5 months ago.
My eyes fell on the Clinique Happy to be shower gel. I’d forgotten I had it!
I’m not one for the Clinique Happy perfume, but I rather like the scent in the shower gel. It does make me feel happy to use it and it smells citrusy and nice too, leaving the bathroom smelling lovely after my shower.
The shower gel itself is quite thick and lathers up well, so you only use quite little and the fragrance lingers on the skin – light enough to be noticed but not strong enough to be cloying. This is part of the reason I prefer to use perfumed shower gels rather than spritz some perfumes on me. Sometimes, the perfumes may be too strong in the eau de toilette or parfum, but is nice and light in the shower gel.
One 200ml bottle is quite expensive though – I reckon its about RM100. So, I get my perfumed shower gel fixes at warehouse sales for about RM30! 😉 There, I’ve let you in on my secret. Now, I’m never going to be able to find anymore perfumed shower gels at warehouse sales, am I?! 😛 So, if you see me at a sale looking disappointed at not finding any perfumed shower gels, be kind to me and share ok? 😉

I need to be on the lookout for these sort of shower gels at my next warehouse sales! 🙂 It’ll be a nice change from my usual sensitive skin stuff. Heh.
oh ya i loved perfumed shower gels. last time i had daisy by MJ’s shower gel n smelled heavenly! once i had my shower at 2am with that shower gel then went to sleep. when hubby woke up at 6+am he said the smell was still in the bathroom! 🙂
@rinnah : I gave up on the skin stuff at warehouse sales coz in some cases they were so close to expiry.
@anis: Aww… you must have smelt nice going to bed too!
i love this scent!!!

quite like it~
my colleague adores it to bits!
and oh! i tagged you in my blog! ^_^
that is great!!!! I love seeing other people’s stashes!
And I am in love with bath lotions too! I love the scented ones but I tend to get allergic at some, so I’m using my trustee JNJ bath shower 🙂
I’m especially partial to shower gels / creams / bubble baths by The Body Shop 🙂 I always stock up during their annual sales – still have enough bottles in my cupboard to last me for quite a while! 😉
