    One UU this evening:

    Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Sheet Mask WDBA. This was soothing on my skin. Trying to calm my breakout down a bit. This has definitely helped :)

    Macadamia Oil Moisturising Rinse 1l - this is a fancy name for conditioner, WNBA, I love the repair mask they do but this was average.


    L'occitane Ultra Rich Shea Body Wash 500ml - WNBA, packaging is a pain, and whilst the product smells lovely it isn't worth the price.

    Aside from the fact that L'Occitane no longer has a store in the Trafford Centre, I have given up with their packaging also.

    A few INs today:

    La Roche Posay Hydreane Legere Moisturiser 40ml
    Ultrasun Family SPF30 100ml
    Vichy Ideal Soleil sample


    I've bought a backup of my moisturiser, and I got the Ultrasun to try as I've seen a lot of people rave about this one lately. I'm excited to try it as it has no silicones and no Avobenzone so my skin shouldn't be irritated from it :)

    One UU tonight:

    Heimish All Clean Balm sample WMB. This was nice and it rinsed off very well.

    Flora Mare eyecream carried over
    [STRIKE]Boots Extracts Vanilla body wash[/STRIKE]
    Derma Vie night cream
    ESSIE Spa scrub
    Ath and Body Works Vetiver handwash
    L’Occitane eye make up remover
    [STRIKE]Hawaiian Tropic sunscreen for face[/STRIKE]
    Lush Cupcake Mask
    [STRIKE] E45 body cream[/STRIKE]
    Murad toner


    Both the sunscreen and E45 cream are gone. Will buy them both again but not yet. I am trying a strict no buy this month (with the exception of that Mally TSV if it turns up). Won't buy the sunscreen until I am going away in October. My PCMC has spf in it at the mo. I really prefer this to the normal version too. It's more creamy and I therefore don't have to apply as much. The E45 cream is lovely although I do prefer to layer fragrances but as I have a variety of small sized shower gels to get through, it's perfect.


    The Essie scrub will be the next to finish and I have a bit of a dilemma with this too. I love this product. Got it in a subscription box so would not have tried it otherwise. The tube is on offer on Nails Direct for £5.95 - normal RRP is £19.99! Really don't want to order one yet because of my no buy and also because it may well last me to the end of the month and is not a necessity (I have a couple of other scrubs I could use).

    One UU tonight:

    Paula's Choice Radiance Renewal Mask 10ml WNBA. Another product that has dimethicone in it. Used on my feet to help soften them a bit.

    Crabtree & Evelyn Himalayan Blue Body Lotion 200ml - this is lovely, quite thick and very scented, it has green tea which I love the scent of.


    Miaflora Pure Argan Oil - WMBA I used this as skincare and haircare and it did both jobs well.


    Prada Candy EDP - WBA, gorgeous scent, more for winter but I just wanted to finish the last bit off.


    VALM - a no buy is a no buy:D, something always comes along to make you give in, I find the easiset thing is not to look.

    My 7 by Autumn list

    1. Bourjois CC Cream
    2. Bourjois Colour Boost Lip Crayon in Plum Russian
    3. Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer
    4. Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick
    5. Soap & Glory Cheekmate
    6. Revlon Photo Finish Powder
    7. Avon Glimmerstick Eyeliner in Black


    My updated lists.


    The 7 by Autumn list never has any movement. The CC cream is really light now, I haven't touched the lip crayon as I've been using a more summery one, the concealer just goes on and on, the foundation stick is nearly done. The cheekmate is a very long lasting product which I doubt I'll finish, I don't use the powder everyday and I am still ploughing on with the broken eyeliner.
