    Wonder Oil - not sure what brand this is but it came from Holland & Barrett, I used it as a hot oil for my hair, body moisturiser, cleanser and eye makeup remover so it is really versatile.

    Sanctuary Kyphi Body Butter 150ml - lovely scent.

    M&S Aloe After Sun
    Wonder Oil (not sure of the brand name)



    My 7 by Spring list
    1. Poppy King Lip Crayon in Smiling - b/f from the last challenge
    2. Barbara Daly Trade Secrets Sheer lip melt in Adorable b/f from the last challenge
    3. Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Powder Pink b/f from the last challenge
    4. Miss Sporty Stick Concealer - b/f from the last challenge
    5. Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer
    6. Benefit rsvp cream shadow mini
    7.  Bare Minerals Eyeliner in Plum


    My updated lists.  From the PP list the Elemis shower gel and the Fushi oil are going to be finished soon but the other items are going strong.

    I think today is the last day for the '7 by Spring' challenge.  I've been using a No7 red lip crayon instead of the Barbara Daly one so I will carry that over, I wasn't loving the Collection concealer under my eyes and I don't really have any blemishes at the moment so I took the stopper out and have been using it as foundation, as long as I don't use too much it is working well and is nearly done and I think I will use the Miss Sporty concealer in this way.  I have a few more uses in the Benefit shadow so I will carry on with that but call it done for the purposes of this challenge, the eyeliner will be carried over.

    I will post my '7 by Summer' items in a minute.

    I have decluttered another palette, this time it was the Too Faced A Few of my Favourite Things.  I've had it a long time and bring it into rotation now and again but only use a few of the shadows and don't ever use the bronzers  (I don't like bronzer), one of the blushers was too glittery and the other two dark.  I didn't ask DD if she wanted this one as she has a ton of makeup already.

    I think there may be more decluttering to follow.

    I think it’s time to call this Project done. I won’t have any more of these products done before Wednesday. Anyone up for a Finish 7 by Summer Project. Here’s my list:-

    Smashbox Full Exposure matte brown shadow (carried over)
    Bare Minerals Warmth bronzer (carried over, if I finish it in a reasonable time, I will roll in my Benefit Hoola mini bronzer and aim to hit pan).
    Avon Mulberry lipgloss (carried over. I’m hoping this won’t take much longer to be done. I’ll then roll in a Laura Geller lipstick called Kiss. Not sure I can pan this in the timeframe but goal is to keep it in rotation and wear it three times a week,
    Elf setting spray. Another item that I neglect to use. Want to finish it.
    MAC Agrabah eyeshadow from the Princess Jasmine palette. It is currently loose in a jar. Hoping to finish it fairly soon and then move onto Bare Minerals Heart loose eyeshadow.  Aim to wear this  at least twice a week.
    Hourglass highlighter from the Edit 4 palette. Want to hit pan.
    OPI Lavendare to find courage mini lacquer. Finish.


    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!

    Over the last year during lockdown, started  to buy more  British product and from small businesses.  Etsy is a  good place to look for beauty products from small businesses.

    Belated birthday wishes. Some nice INs there. I want a new clay mask to try. What brand is the cleanser you mention above?

    i Love Etsy. Have found a great cuticle oil and foot cream on there,

    Two UUs from the past few days:

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

    Jordan Samuel Skin The Matinee Gel Cleanser 180ml - WBA and probably will. It's such a lovely, gentle, and refreshing gel cleanser. I've really enjoyed it. Will probably purchase again :)
