Between night shifts, I sometimes sleep in the on-call room during the day.
One time I forgot my wash bag; so I nipped out to the nearest supermarket to get some toiletries. I went for the cheapest - after all, they were just to use as a one-off so that I'd be clean & fresh for work later that evening.
There's a reason it was so cheap.
There's a reason it only cost 70p
(for the lot).
For a start, the shower gel smelt like dying leaves (not in any kind of nice way). Actually, maybe it was more like a wet dog. It was blue-green, sticky and really difficult to wash off. The only thing it had going for it was that it tasted marginally better than the toothpaste.
I have no idea what the toothpaste was meant to taste of. It can't have been mint.
The cardboard packaging was more effective than either toothbrush at getting rid of the taste of both of the above.
And the sight of "Value Razors: £0.27" should've set off alarm bells (in the same way that you'd have second thoughts if you saw a sign advertising "Free Piercing" or "Inexperienced Surgeon").
Stupidly, I let the "Twin Blade Technology" fool me into thinking they might work at all. To get rid of 2 days-worth of chin stubble, I had to use 3 disposable razors.
Disposable. Wish I'd thrown the lot away instead of using any of it...
