July 2016 Low-Buy Accountability

July was expected to be the start of my 3 month “No-Buy” because I had overspent in may / June. but wouldn’t you know it, my birthday happened to be in July and I rained birthday gifts down upon myself!

È successo. and it was magnificent. I did also place an purchase from the Body shop for some skincare because for once, I’m actually in need of some items!

A little while ago I went into the Body shop store for a totally free skin analysis and they recommended a few items for me to try. I walked away with a shopping list and a sample of Oils Of Life Intensely Revitalising Sleeping Cream and the corresponding Facial Oil.

I remember Adryana liking the Sleeping Cream, so I’m thrilled to try it.

Then there was a 40% off sale online so I took the plunge:

Ho ottenuto:

Drops of youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask
Finally succumbed to the sleeping mask rage. Let’s just call it for what it is – a much more intensive night cream. I will try this for once or twice a week to start off with.

Vitamin E Aqua increase Essence
Not to be confused with the Aqua increase Sorbet, which I’ve used and disliked (dried out my skin). I plan to try this essence with those Muji diy sheet masks I got.

Vitamin E Nourishing night Cream
I’m out of night creams and going through samples. This has great reviews and I’ve delighted in most Vitamin E products.

I chose a sample of the Vitamin E Day cream as my totally free sample.

I managed to stay away from Winners / Marshalls as much as possible last month even though I was faced with this:

but this is the only item I purchased from Winners:

COLAB volume extreme dry Shampoo travel pack trio in Rio, Paris, and London. This is my preferred dry shampoo that I take for travelling.

I randomly picked up the CoverGirl Plumpify blastPro Mascara because it was on sale, and this was a recommendation from Dal of little charm loves.  Since I’m no longer counting mascaras toward my makeup low Buy, this isn’t a cheat!

Lastly, here’s a fun little makeup related, but not actual makeup item  – Paperchase makeup stickers!

I know, I’m a grown adult and I still love stickers! would it be too meta to stick them onto my makeup products?

August and September are going to be really tough. Niente scuse. No loopholes. Well, unless there’s an optimum Redemption Event.

June and July 2017 No-Buy-Low-Buy AccountabilityI hadn’t planned on being MIA last week but it was my final week at my old job and it was so busy!  I ended up having a lot of social engagements last week (goodbyes) – being out every night makes it challenging to blog!  Things likely won’t work out down…

August 2016 Low-Buy AccountabilityThe first “real” month of my self-imposed No-Buy, due to my overspending back in may / June. In August, I did pick up a few bits from the drugstore, and Winners, where else? I’ve been surprisingly not too tempted by new launches even with all the fall sneak peeks and…
