    Prada Candy Kiss EDP 50ml - love this and the original Candy.  WBA but have way too many perfumes to consider buying anything just at the moment.

    Beauty of Bath Cashmere Musk Hand Cream - this is for my work bag

    Naturally European Plum Violet Hand Cream - love this brand of hand creams, haven't tried this scent before.

    Organii Cream Soap Rose Geranium - love anything rose geranium scented, this will be used in place of shower gel.
    I'm intrigued by Plum Violet hand cream.   Is it fruity or floral in scent?

    I'm afraid I'm not as organized as you lot.   I can see the amount going down but I don't have lists.   I just know the amount of space is being taken up.   Also, I'm using more things because my shift pattern now gives me time to put on mascara and a bit of eyeshadow and blush before work,  I just can't do it at 0500.

    UU:

    Vichy Purete Thermale 3in1 cleanser.   Good but nothing super special

    Strivectin-AR advanced Retinol Night Treatment.   Sample 7ml tube.   Honestly?   It's supposed to reduce age spots, but I only noticed a change on the areas on the base of my throat not on my face.

    I'm continuing to try and use a sample size before opening a full size.

    I did fall off the wagon and buy something because it was pretty and there was a GWP.   I know, I know, my weakness.  So a Lise Watier Neiges EDP and a trio blush are coming my way next week.   The GWP?  Summer tote bag, canvas with 13 samples, a full size dry shampoo and $40 worth of store points.  The store points are the best deal around.  I can use them at a specific drugstore (think our version of Boots) or at a grocery store or an Esso station for fuel purchases.

    Morning all.  3 more mini UU's from the weekend:

    Bayliss and Harding Bath Bubbles Mini - another from the advent calendar and was ok, nothing special and have a few more to work through.

    Etude House Dr Ampules Sheet Mask - love these as they leave my skin feeling so smooth, again have a couple more of these to work through

    Sensodyne Repair and Protect toothpaste: HG, have to use this one and have 2 more in the cupboard as I always buy it on offer.

    Have a few more products which are so close to being finished this week so will definitely be popping back with more updates.

    • By Wishtrend - Quad Active Boosting Essence [100ml]:  Quite thin/light toner.  It's meant to help with acne, be all anti-bac/anti-inflam, but I didn't find it particularly helped with that.  I think because the propolis is actually quite minimal in this product.  Beautiful amber glass bottle though, I did enjoy the aesthetics.  Might buy again at some point, but right now I'm going back to my COSRX propolis toner (one is on the way to me as I type).
    • The Inkey List- Salicylic Acid Cleanser: Actually been using this as a brush and sponge cleaner.  I already have a BHA toner that I use, so I'm not sure why I bought this initially- don't want to exfoliate my whole face off, so have never really used it as an actual facewash. WNBA

    Updated PP List

    Ultrasun SPF 
    Too faced Old Money 
    Lacura hand cream
    Kiehls ultimate cream 
    Superdrug shampoo
    The Inkey List Caffeine eye cream
    Superdrug conditioner
    Glamglow Good in Bed moisturiser - mini tub

    2 make up items brought into rotation:-
    MAC primer
    Bare Minerals Golden Gate blush


    UUS:  Bare Minerals Heart loose eyeshadow.  I pulled the sifter out last night, depotted into a bigger pot and managed to get all the product finished in the application I used today.  I love this colour.  In fact this is a second pot that I've got through.  It is not however a current colour so I won't repurchase.  Am sure I have dupes in my stash somewhere.

    Elf concealer.  HG.  I have another in stash.  Couldn't remove the stopper on this one.  In any event I was getting very little product on the applicator. 

    To update my Finish 23 in 2023, I have finished 4 items so far.

    Have a feeling that the shampool conditioner, hand cream and eye cream will not be finished this month.  Have a chance with all other items.





    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!

    Oh, and my Boots order arrived already!  The lipstick looks lovely (though I've only swatched it on my hand).  They put 3 x perfume samples in the box too.

    Wondercollie - the hand cream is a floral scent I would say, very nice and they have lots of shea in so are moisturising and not too expensive.

    Few more UU to report:

    TBS Mango Body Yogurt: can't decide if I like this or not.  Liked how it made my skin feel but it was a pain to get out of the pot and is expensive for what it is.

    Bayliss and Harding Mini Body Lotion: another one from the advent calendar.  Was ok

    Corsodyl Daily Defence Mouthwash: Another thing that I have to use.

    UUs

    Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid - WBA. 
    Acuve contact lens solution, already bought a replacement.
    Omorovizca Ultramoor Mud Mask (travel size) - nice mask but I wouldn't pay for the full size price. This one was from a Caroline Hirons box I think.

    I have decluttered my make-up quite a bit and am committed to use more of the products I have. I go to office twice a week now so it will help.
