    UU sample of Fresh Rose mask.  Lovely.  I have two more sample sachets - one scrub and one overnight mask. 
    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!

    1 more UU this week - Pixi Retinol Tonic
    If I ever need to buy another tonic from Pixi, it will be Glow tonic and not this one. It smells nice, feels fresh on the skin but didn't really feel any different than any other toner I use.

    Has anyone ever found a toner/tonic that they feel does anything?  I don't yet I still use one!!  Am enjoying the Elemis Apricot one at the moment and now spritz it on rather than using cotton wool pads. 
    My fave toners and ones I use regularly are Pixie glow tonic and Elemis Apricot.  I use both of these daily, the Elemis in the morning, the pixie at night.  Caudalie vinopure and Clinique  are also really good and I intend on purchasing both again in the future

    Plan for October is no purchases, though it's my birthday in a couple of weeks, so I may receive some gifts. 
    I want to use up at least one moisturiser this month.

    Two UUs to report:

    One from last night:

    Oral B Satin Tape 25m - WDBA and have done. Cheap and effective :) 

    And one from this afternoon:

    Eucerin Urea Repair Plus Hand Cream 75ml - WDBA. This was really nice, I'm glad I got the duo pack. It's very protecting which what I need with all this hand washing. Replaced with my second tube of it.

    L'oreal creme excellence hair dye: WBA, and possible HG. Amazing grey coverage and shampoo left hair smooth and glossy.
    1 x hydrogen peroxide
    1 x Primark H20 micellar wipes - WMBA, as they biodegrable but trying to reduce use of wet wipes.

    La Roche Posay Hydreane Legere Moisturiser 40ml - WDBA and have done. This is my HG moisturiser, my skin doesn't get along with other moisturisers that I try.
