Some women collect shoes, some collect handbags, well I collect body washes!
This is actually quite a small collection for me because I've been trying to reign it in a bit and use up most of what I already have. I've been a very good Mummy V by avoiding the body wash section whenever I go to the shops because if I see any that I haven't tried before, or any in pretty packaging, then I will simply have to buy them. I love trying new fragrances, particularly ones that are fruity or sweet like chocolate or vanilla.
I have a few Dove body washes in the above photo, this is because I love how well they lather - they create a really soft, creamy lather that leaves my skin feeling thoroughly moisturised. The only downside to the Dove body washes is that some of them smell a little too soapy for my liking. I prefer to smell more of the fragrance when I'm washing and on my skin afterwards.
As I mentioned above, pretty packaging is also an attraction for me - I love the simple, fresh Nivea bottles but I also like the quirky shape of the Palmolive bottles. In the past I've had beautiful glass bottles which look great as a bathroom decoration (until they're half empty that is).
I don't buy them all myself, my family say that there are four things that are a guaranteed hit for me on birthdays/Christmas etc: body washes, candles, bath bombs and chocolate! And I have to admit that they're completely right, although to be honest I actually love all toiletries so I like to think I'm easy to buy for (and not too expensive either).
Do you have a collection of toiletries? Or do you have a collection of a different kind? I'd love to hear about it so please leave a comment.
