How long does it take you to finish lotion and shower gel?



How long does it normally take you to finish up body lotion (8 oz) and shower gel? I find that even though I apply lotion every day on every part of my body it just doesn't seem to ever run out :I. In the meanwhile I continue to buy more.....Do you guys usually stick to one lotion until it's gone or get tired of scents easily and switch every so often? Just curious to know because I think I may have an addiction that needs to be stopped until I finish a sufficient amount :)

Always buying extras because I think I have less than I do ... and I am a sucker for fabulous smelling shower gels! It takes me forever to finish a bottle. FOREVER. Either I am not using enough, don't shower enough, or they just DO last.

Can't speak on body cream since I use it about 1x a week.

I had a similar addiction with lipsticks. I had to lock myself down.

It all depends

It takes me forever to use up lotion as I keep using different ones all the time. I rotate them depending on scent and where on my body I use it. Sometimes I have to throw them out before they are used up.

Shower and Body wash I use everyday and so does everyone else in the house so we go through a bottle every 2 weeks. Guys don't even care if its scented, they will use whatever is there.

Never run out

I feel like I constantly have shower gel, my Olay jojoba shower gel has lasted me 4 months and its still half full.
Lotion lasts me twice as long

it is recommended that you use a body wash, deodorant, body lotion perfume (if you use it) with similar scents, so they don't all clash with each other. So I tend to buy products from the same line like dove nectarine body wash deodorant, and use a very mild scented lotion with a peach scent. I have a few of these combinations that i switch back and forth from time to time, but this way you don't end up smelling funny from too many different scents. It does take a long time to get through it all, and I do have some stocked up that i usually get when its on sale.
