I have been in Oz for 5 years now and although it is possible to buy certain food products in various 'lolly shops' I still get frustrated when I cannot buy certain things. Business socks from Next, Sure sports shower gel, Lynx stick deodorant, the list goes on.
What would make your life a little brighter if it was available without harrassing a family member of friend to post it?

Hi there and Welcome to B.E.

I only want for shoes which I have now found on the internet from the UK. I also get my socks (cotton lined wool) from the internet. I think Next either deliver or are here???

This year some decent weather would make my life brighter.

Give us a hoy if you need any help with B.E.

Enjoy.

Alistair.

Sorry but Mint Slices are nothing like After Eights and Stingoes doesn't work for me although I do now like Itch Eze Plus - which really works!

Yeah, I thought that until I got bought some After Eights for Xmas last year. The only difference is that After Eights don't have as much fondant in and are a little thinner, but they taste exactly the same. (I did a blind taste test )

For the itching, try one of those zapper things. They are fantastic and work immediately

Liquid salted caramels (or indeed anything else) from Artisan du Chocolat.

Aussie shampoo and conditioner (how can you have a brand called Aussie that isn't sold in Australia? Deceitful swines!).

I guess most of the posts so far can be found as substitutes or watered down versions. How about anything a bit more substantial like tools or gadgets or other items?
