US Shopping List- Toiletries

A big question when moving to China is "what should I bring from home?" This question is as individual as each person, but here is my evolving US bathroom inventory. These items are either things we brought originally and run out of or they are items we have realized we prefer from home. It is important to mention that some of these items cannot be found here, but the ones that can be are either too expensive or the quality is not to our liking. 
The ones marked * are an absolute MUST.

All expats shop in the US but many of my friends have found that TaoBao and Amazon.cn work well. Also, we have lucky friends here with the US government that can receive shipping from US companies! For me, this is how we roll....and pray our suitcases aren't over in weight.
