Our good friend in parsimony, Eddie Hobbs, periodically advises us on making cheaper cosmetic swaps. But this time I'm going to advocate paying MORE for a similar item. Why, ladies, would you have a Spongeable when you could have a super-duper posh Kai Body Buffer?
Sure, both are similar - scent n' bubbles impregnated into a special spongey mix that gives you a number of washes, and then it's gone. But. And it's a big but. Why spend a fiver on something shaped like a duck and really doesn't smell all that great, when you could have the swanky Kai version, scented with exotic perfume? Oprah agrees, apparently, and jays lads, so do I!
At €27 from Vanillacotton.ie, it's not exactly cheap, I know - but it's a real treat purchase, and you do get two in the pack as well.
