    2 UU today:
    Next Just Pink Body Lotion - WMBA I like the perfume in the set, but the lotion itself doesn!!!8217;t keep my skin moisturised for that long.

    Dove Go Gresh Moisturising Cream Deodorant with Pear and Aloe Vera - WDBA but would like to try the different scents first.

    Stash total = 204

    I'm using this deodorant at the moment and loving the smell
    Did owe £9,951.96

    Now helping hubby pay off loan. Finally paid off :j

    Might be a spambot, I've seen a couple of posts from new users which just repeat bits of conversations like that one. Will report it. (Sorry annapharm if you are not spam!)

    Thanks for the new thread, Stevo. I'm in for August. I have an ambitious PP list and a couple of tubes I'm about to cut open.

    Had a great July, only one very necessary IN, and 33 OUTs (inc 11 GA, 9TA).

    Currently have no back-up shower gel or facial cleanser. I have tons of soap so may try this instead of the shower gel, though our shower is a wet sort of place and soap does tend to go gungy quite quickly.

    And one fabulous UU already for August:
    MUA Mosaic Blusher in English Rose. This cost me £1 and took 9 months to use up. It was fine, nothing special. I have 12 more blushers so no need to replace!

    Hi, that what I am doing, using soap instead of shower gel. I use Avene Cleansing bar which does not go grungy at the end. Hope this helps!

    Hi all. My LF beauty box has arrived so some INs

    Molten Brown Gingerlily Body Wash 100ml
    BalanceMe Pure Skin Face Wash 40ml
    Erno Laszio Firm & Lift Essence Lotion 15 ml
    Mio Boob Tube 100 ml
    Nails Inc Glazin Over lip colour
    BBB London Mini Brow Build Gel

    2 UUs
    A small rituals shower gel and grow gorgeous hair growth serum. I've used this serum with the brands' growth shampoo and conditioner and my hair grown noticeably quicker. I did like the shampoo but the conditioner is a bit thick and not very moisturising. I think overall a bit high maintenance to keep using all to see a difference and pricey but I WMBA.

    Elemis Balancing Lime Blossom Cleanser- HG - replacement ready.

    Boots Extracts Vanilla body wash. I think these tubes are 75ml each. I chucked this into my bath yesterday. Have replaced with a Philosophy Basil and cucumber shower gel. Have 5 of the Boots Extracts, a Sanctuary in shower moisturiser, L’Occitane soap and full sized Liz Earle body wash in stash. Going to save the Sanctuary one for my holiday, use the soap as handwash in the bathroom and save LE for last. Have E45 moisturiser that I can use with all these products save the LE one that I have matching body cream for. NO NEED TO BUY ANY BODYCARE FOR A FEW MONTHS.

    Should finish my Hawaiian Tropic facial sunscreen today. Will probably repurchase for my holiday in October but for now have SPF in my day Cream.

    Was proud of myself in Boots yesterday. I still seem to crave GWO products and the Limited Editor no 7 palette was calling me. I do like the mini shadows I have had from them. Swatched a couple of the shadows and decided I had others like them. I don’t know what I would have bought to qualify though. I think my Kat Von D eyeliners is possibly nearing its end but would prefer to buy this in the US, THe No 7 one had too flimsy a brush for my liking so glad I passed on both. Came out of Boots with nothing.

    Will be throwing away some items today - My YSL Babydoll mascara is now clumping. Have Benefit one to replace with. Have 7 lacquers I am culling,

    Really wanted a no buy August but have a dilemma. I ordered a Mally TSV on Autodelivery in June. The original never arrived so it’s not as if I’m going to have backups. However I still want the kit for the same reasons that I ordered it in the first place in that I want to try the stick foundation and eyebrow pencil for travelling. I’m thinking of not cancelling it then trying these two products and then seeing if I can sell other items off. Other than this I really don’t want to buy anything this month.
    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!

    UUs:

    Superdrug chocolate orange self-heating mask

    Sanex soap free shower gel - WMBA- foams nicely without leaving skin dry. This was used as my travel "soap" as day to day I use aqueous cream to shower with, which is cheaper but too bulky to travel with.

    Macleans whitening toothpaste - WNBA - i have another one in the stash but I'm going to stop using whitening products due to reported enamel damage. This toothpaste was ok but nothing special.

    Boots smile fresh mint travel toothpaste - WBA - Nice texture and taste. Not too overpowering. Will consider this for every day use in the future.

    Superdug baby cotton pads - WNBA - Too thin for nail polish remover and toner use. Will stick to Lidl brand.

    Ins:

    Rosewater - HG

    UUs of the day - Superdrug cotton pads. I have more in the stash. Does the job.
    Hawaiian Tropic Satin Protection SPF15 100ml - I love the smell and the application. Good for those days that aren't very sunny but still can wear short sleeves.

    I replaced this with Solait Sports Lotion SPF 30 and also bought Face cream and lip balm 2 in 1 from the same brand. Superdrug had buy 1 get the 2nd one half price deal so used that.

    Also uu'ed Satsuma Hand Cream from TBS - too strong scent, WNBA.

    Two UUs this evening:

    Superdrug Vitamin E Moisture Boost Serum 50ml WNBA. I couldn't use this on my face because of the fragrance. And it contains dimethicone which I'm avoiding. Glad it's gone.

    Iunik Black Snail Restore Serum sample WNB. I don't like the idea of using snail products but I used this up on my neck and chest.
