    Last UU of the month - Clinique Fresh Pressed Renewing Powder Cleanser with Pure Vitamin x 1 pack (inc. 28 individual packs). I love this cleanser. Made a difference to my skin especially when I first started using it.

    I don't like individual packaging and price tag. It is worth it but more than I'd like to pay each month. I will buy this on and off but probably not for a bit. I have a few cleansers to go through first.

    I’m moving house twice over the next few months! So I need to UU/TA as much as possible! I’ll also need to throw away some empties I save for travel because I have too many.

    Of all months I didn’t keep track of movement well and was not really focused. I think I have only reduced my stash by 3 items!

    I threw away quite a few nail polish bottles.

    5 - all replacements of items finished off or, in the case of the cleanser and pencil sharpener, items Emma took back to Uni. I bought a gift for a friend yesterday which I’m not counting as it was not for me. All in all, including the gift I spent £22.

    I have however today ordered the BareMinerals TSV as it’s practically the same kit as the Mally one that I was not destined to receive. Contains Foundation (only have samples at the mo), concealer (Benefit Boing will be UU soon), Mineral Veil (I have other powders so this will be stashed I think), Primer (will be stashed although I only have the one that’s open), eyeshadow stick (I’m considering selling it as I’ve had unimpressive experiences with them in the past) and lipgloss (will sell this because I have this colour).
    Back for the No Buying Toiletries challenge. I pledge to only buy when I run out of a product that is not already in my stash no matter what wonderful emails land in in my Inbox or threads I read on MSE re: glitches!
