    2 cleansers UU : Liz Earler Cleanse & Polish.  I have more of this and/or the Lacura copy in stash.
    Elemis Lime Blossom Balancing Cleanser - have replacement ready but when that is finished looking for an alternative.  If anyone has an oily TZone and knows of a good cleanser that balances this and is cruelty free, let me know.
    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!

    Roger & Gallet Fleur de Figuier Replenishing Body Lotion 50ml - I actually used this as hand cream.

    I finished the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream sample, it was too small to tell whether it does what she claims but there is no way I will be buying it.  The backstory to this is she used to make it in her kitchen and take it backstage, I doubt that she did if I'm honest, how technical a product could she be rustling up in her kitchen?  I think she was taking a pot of something backstage and claiming she made it and I've heard before that this product is similar to Ponds cream but one thing is for sure she could sell snow to Eskimos but I do find all the dahling a bit tiresome.  CT has tapped into women's desire to be sexy and she is relieving them of their money by telling them how seductive her products will make them and she is getting very rich.

    First Anniversary First Post I've been Money Tipped!
    A few UUs from the past few days:

    La Roche Posay Hydreane Legere Moisturiser 40ml - WDBA and have done but I may go back to the Bioderma Sensibio Light as it is getting a bit harder to get. 

    Maui Moisture Agave Conditioner 385ml - WDBA and have done. I may try the Hibiscus Water conditioner next but I have a bottle of this ready to use. 

    Bumble and Bumble Don’t Blow It (Fine) sample - WDBA and have done. Just thought I'd try to use up my sample sachets :)

    Le Soft Stick Perfume in Parisian Rhapsody - I've worn this all weekend and really didn't like it, it is just a super sweet fragrance, I've only been at home decorating so it seemed like a good time to try it out.  I have another one on the go in a scent I quite like plus two others in the stash.

    IN Head and Shoulders Shampoo, I don't think I have bought anything not vegan this year... but I just wanted to try this. I blame Claudia Winkleman.

    UU Green People Rejuvinating Eye Cream - this was actually really nice but I just cannot personally get on board with eye creams so WNBA

    UU Body Shop Starry Bath Bomb 
    This was nice, v relaxing, don't know if it was worth the money or if I would buy again though.

  • Last UUs for the month:
    Aphogee balancing moisturiser conditioner: WNBA, don't think it really did anything for my hair.
    Garnier Hemp Multi-Restore Facial Sleeping Oil sample: WMBA, sinks nicely in to the skin but want to try other brands.  

    Unfortunately, the eyeshadow palette I kept in my basket was unavailable so no ins. I'll make do with the one I have since they are winter colours, and there's few occasions to dress up now.

    PPs for the end of the year:
    Superdrug Naturally Radiant Hot Cloth cleanser
    Davidoff cool water perfume
    Soap & Glory Summmer scrubbing exfoliator
    Rosehip oil

    I saw a You Tube video review of one of her creams by a dermatologist who warned that the product was full of fragrance. I remember her saying “You think CT’s got your back but the only thing she has got is your money “. I agree too that the “dahhhhhrling” thing is annoying.
