Only one more month to go until the beauty ban is over! Done! Finito! In honor of that exciting moment, I used a dramatic font for this month’s post. See?
The empties bag was woefully light this month. I think it’s because I’m so close to being done with several products, just not quite there yet. Ah, well. Such is life.
- Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic
- Rohto C Cubed Drops
- Band-Aid Friction Stick: Love this stuff for shoes that chafe against my ankles. It’s Vaseline in roll-up tube form, without the goopy mess. Great for tossing into my purse, and a stick lasts for ages.
- 2 tealights: finished the top layer of my bag of 30 tealights! woot woot
- Waxelene (expired)
- Update: and somehow I missed the mask sitting right in the middle of the picture. I must be losing it. That would be a My Beauty Diary Sheet Mask in Polyphenol Apple. It smells yummy, and refines my pores.
This month’s purchases were also uncharacteristically low. I bought a 2-pack of Saline Solution for $19, which honestly kind of kills me. Why so pricey? I’m thinking of switching over to Costco’s Kirkland brand, which is significantly less expensive and pretty much has the same ingredients list.
And that concludes my list of monthly purchases. Honest. The only thing I’m tempted by these days are home fragrance items and that elusive, red Kate Moss for Rimmel lipstick. Luckily, resisting those impulses has been easier than usual as of late. I wish I could say this is a permanent change brought on by my bought of beauty budgeting, but in reality it’s probably because I’m under the weather and kind of exhausted. I’ll be back to drooling over makeup in no time, fear not!
(Wait, I’m not supposed to do that, am I? Beauty bans are so confusing).
Ban buddies, how did you do this month? Do you find yourself losing the will to buy makeup when you’re sick and/or tired? Maybe I should deprive myself of sleep more often.
