We Went a Whole Year Using Toiletries Nabbed from Vegas Hotels
Ever wondered why our contributor always smells so good? Well, here's his secret.
There was a challenge put forth to me at the beginning of 2012 to use hotel toiletries including lotion, shower gel and shampoo for the entire year. Challenge accepted and, because I spent way too many nights in hotels last year, challenge completed and challenge won!
My favorite hotel toiletries include everything from Cosmopolitan to the Qua Spa lotion from Caesars Palace. Supposedly, Caesars Palace only uses the Qua Spa toiletries in the Octavius and Augustus tower, where I got mine. Otherwise, Caesars Entertainment uses Gilchrist and Soames toiletries at most of their properties across the country.
The normal toiletries at Caesars properties are average, at best, but at least they're not offensive. There is nothing worse to me than every product offered at Venetian and Palazzo. The lotion reminds me of the Avon perfumes my granny used to have. The shower gel and shampoo have similar strong scents.
While no longer a challenge, I'm continuing to use leftover toiletries from Encore, Caesars Palace and Main Street Station. I'll keep going with Vegas hotel toiletries for no other reason than because I can. Every scent, good or bad, reminds me of a fun night staying in a casino and I'm looking forward to new scents and memories.
