My little no buy project is going well. I did get a whopping £140 worth of Boots points after sending some old phones to their recycling scheme (you can find out about it here ) so I did pick up some stuff but it’s going in a drawer until after my no buy ends and technically it was free so I maintain it doesn’t count :p This month I tackled a load of almost empty products that were lying around and managed to finish quite a lot!
Chanel Chance Eau Fraiche – A lovely light fragrance that was my daily perfume for university. I tend to get bored or sick of perfumes though and by the end I was completely over this. I may repurchase but not for a few years.
No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Serum – I’m 23 and I think my skin is just too young to feel any benefit from this so I won’t be buying it.
Botanics Daily Hand Therapy SPF10 – One of the cheapest hand creams with SPF I’ve found so I’ll keep repurchasing (I have gone through several of these).
Jergens Extra Softening moisturiser – as a night hand cream I really do like this. It’s thick and very moisturising.
Random Korean Oil Control Tissues – From eBay I got 3 packs of 25 for £2.05 (inc postage). These don’t leave a powdery residue and do a good job at removing oil without removing makeup. Fab!
L’Oreal Lash Renewal Serum – This lasted over 6 months and I have reviewed it here. It did help thicken my lashes out and added some length which was more than I expected from this especially given that it’s well under £15. It’s whetted my appetite for a more heavy duty lash serum though. I think I’ll get Rapid Lash next instead.
Urban Decay Lip Primer Potion – Worked fantastically but the formula is a little dry. I’m looking to try other lip primers.
Maxfactor Masterpiece Mascara Sample – Loved this. It gives plenty of definition, it’s a possible future purchase.
Mini No7 Lipgloss in Marshmallow – This didn’t really provide any colour but was extremely moisturising so I just kept it in my hand bag and slapped it on. It was essentially a glossy lip balm. I probably won’t repurchase as although I liked it I was wowed by it.
The Body Shop Shower Gels – These were hanging around from a Christmas minis set I must have gotten a couple of years ago. I can’t stand Coconut and the other one was kind of manly smelling. Hubby didn’t like it though so I just used it up. I like some of the other scents but it’s a resounding meh for the shower gels in general.
MAC Pro Eye Makeup Remover – Loathed it. Read my review for more info.
Clinique Take The Day Off Eye Makeup Remover Sample – Like this and will probably purchase a full sized bottle at some point.
Estee Lauder Day Wear Plus Sample – Loved this but can’t really afford £30 for the full sized at the moment.
Boots Vitamin E Night Cream – It’s a good little product for not many pennies. It doesn’t sink in very quickly but as it’s a night cream it doesn’t really bother me. I wouldn’t mind repurchasing again.
LUSH Dream Cream – Moisturises really well but I really don’t like the scent.
LUSH Iced Wine Shower Jelly – Don’t think you can get this now as it was part of the Christmas line. Smelled lovely but the jelly is a bit of a pain to use.
Simple Soothing Facial Toner – I like alcohol toners so I liked this one. Cheap and cheerful but I want to try other toners.
Batiste Brunette Dry Shampoo – Definite repurchase once some other have been used up.
