    No Buying Unnecessary Toiletries Feb. 2018

    No Buying Unnecessary Toiletries Feb. 2018 31st Jan 18 at 6:50 PM
    Here we go again for another month. As usual this initial post has been shamelessly copied from the many previous months. A big thank you to sstevo19 for starting us off last month.

    Welcome all newbies and regulars to this very friendly and chatty thread where we give lots of lovely tips on how to use up your stash and lots of support and encouragement if you need them.

    Keep up the pampering and keep down the spending: let!!!8217;s make the naughty step an empty and lonely place this month (rather than one so long that it can be seen from space)! Will this be the month when the "usual suspects" rein it in a bit? Let's see..... (but I doubt it!)

    Remember - those products do nothing for you while they are stashed in drawers, boxes and cupboards!

    We are eternally grateful to Katie Clampet who set up this fab challenge in January 2010. Here's her original challenge post:

    "No buying any new toiletries, cosmetics, perfume etc... until I have used up ALL the ones I already have. I got a huge amount of (really nice) stuff for Christmas but I am going to resist the urge to browse Boots, Asda, Superdrug etc, and pop another tub of cream, face scrub, shampoo or conditioner into my basket. I reckon the stuff I have will last me until possibly June. I have decided that the money I save I will put into my special holiday account. Anyone else?"

    Lots of us have taken part in the challenge over the past few months (and some of us even years!!) and are making great progress in reducing our stashes and unnecessary/excessive spending.

    Regulars can ignore this, but a quick resume is always helpful for newbies:

    Why not add the challenge to your signature as a reminder?

    How about taking a bit of time to do a stock-take and see if there are any gaps in your stash that you might need to spend on this month? Some of us set a budget for the month for essential purchases or to help with withdrawal symptoms, others like to go cold-turkey!! Other ideas which some people find useful: Listing everything out so you can cross things off as used to increase the sense of achievement, and putting a sum of money in a pot each time you use up an item to save for something you really want, or simply to assist in making future essential purchases "cash neutral".

    Remember the challenge is about making the most of your money, enjoying your products, finding which products really suit you best and are worth buying, giving yourself a well-deserved pampering and breaking the habit of buying for the sake of buying. In money-saving tradition, it should also be about making your products l-a-s-t as long as possible (although the temptation of using an unloved shower gel extravagantly to finish it off is sometimes too much to bear!).

    Brand new products (or opened perfume) sell well on eBay.

    Unsuitable products can be repurposed and used for other jobs (shower gel/shampoo as handwash etc).

    Some items can be returned to certain stores for exchange (for essential items or gifts!!) without a receipt.

    Unwanted items can be recycled as gifts or for gift hampers (saving the money you'd have spent on gifts).

    Unsuitable items can be donated to charity or a local women's refuge as mentioned earlier

    It helps to avoid the places where temptation lurks for you; be it QVC, Boots, Body Shop, email newsletter, the supermarket toiletries aisles, Grabbit board, online toiletries browsing, seductive department store beauty counter offers etc. Remember retailers are making offers and promotions all the time, so there will always be another deal! Honest!

    Good luck all for February 2018 and indeed the coming months, and remember to keep your stash lists updated, keep popping in for inspiration and support and to report your UU's and IN's, especially any sales bargains - we want a nosy!

    Welcome to all newbies - the more the merrier. Please introduce yourselves so we can welcome you properly! Do de-lurk if you are lurking, this is one of the friendliest threads on MSE.

    Oh - and anyone thinking "OMG my stash is FAR bigger than all of theirs, I cant possibly join" - believe you me, we have been doing this challenge for well over a year some of us - you wont scare us, and I can almost guarantee that someone somewhere will have had more and survived.... we are very supportive (and protective - so don't be scared!!) oh - and did we mention that are nosy??!!


    Useful abbreviations and jargon!

    WBA - Will Buy Again
    UU - Use Ups
    IN - Self explanatory - stuff you've gained into your stash - warning: lines may be given out for unnecessary purchases or you may be sent to the naughty step!
    NBI - A non-bought item such as a present, gift with purchase or free sample
    WNBA - Will Not Buy Again!
    Glitch - when a shop/online store make a pricing mistake so you end up paying less or even get freebies!
    PYN(M/T/W/Th/F/Sa/Su) DELETE AS APPROPRIATE! - Paint Your Nails Monday/Tuesday...... it allows everyone to try and finish those dastardly nail varnishes with group support! You can never be too groomed for this thread. Also see PY(T)N... - for toenails!
    Splutterer - the stage where an item is nearing the end of it's life and spluttering - also the most annoying and seemingly never ending stage!
    GWP - Gift With Purchase - a sample or mini sized item
    HG - Holy Grail - this is the product you would go back for time and time again, it does the job brilliantly, and is either economical, or so fantastic price becomes no object!
    NPI - Near Purchasing Incident (OMG we all have those!)
    LHJ - Long Haul Job - for those products - love 'em or hate 'em - that never seem to end no matter how often you use them
    PRCP - Pink Rose Candle Philosophy inspired by Erma Bombeck who said: 'If I had my life to live over again I would have burned the pink candle sculpted like a rose that melted in storage'. Don't keep things 'for best' or 'for a special occasion'. That day never arrives. Give the best to yourself now and enjoy it. (Thanks to McCulloch29 for introducing this thought provoking sentiment to us)
    GA - for an out that was given away to charity, as a present, or "just because" rather than binned or UU
    TA - for an out that was thrown away due to going off (generally as it has been lurking at the back of a stash since time immemorial) or for any other reason such as a broken container or spillage
    PP - Project Pan: a list of specific items targeted to be used up

    If anyone can think of any more we can add to the list so newbies won't be intimidated by our jargon!


    Graduates

    Here is a list of our lovely,fragrant ladies who have polished and pampered their way through their products and managed to get their toiletries stash under control. Ladies - congratulations, you are an inspiration to the rest of us, xx . Thanks also to InaPickle who suggested we start the Graduate list. To join the list of graduates let us know by posting that you are graduating in big colourful letters, that way the OP can easily spot you and add you to the list, or better still - PM the OP as the thread can move really quickly! You may also wish to add how many products you have used up during the challenge. Good luck ladies! xx

    Finish 5 by Spring
    Benefit Dallas blush

    Eyeshadow from Smashbox Full Exposure palette - S5.

    Laura Geller Balance N Brighten

    Sephora by OPI JUST A Little Dangerous
    L'Occitane Amber and Santal fragrance
    Laura Mercier Grey Pearl Caviar stick

    So, I can't remember if I mentioned that the OPI Just a Little Dangerous was TA on Friday? I was getting very little product on the brush.

    I have also now UUed the fragrance. It's ok in the Autumn/Winter as it was very musky. I prefer fragrance like this for the home rather than on me so won't try out the new Ambre one that replaces it. I have pulled out my LE Botanical No 9 to wear for the rest of the month as it's lighter and have only noticed today that I have only half a bottle left of this so maybe it can be finished this month?

    As I've more or less finished the challenge and we have a good two months to go still I'm going to pull in some more products:-

    Marc Jacobs mini lipstick in colour Jetaime (I think that's how you spell it). It's a lovely raspberry red colour and very wearable. Don't have much left so hopeful I can finish it for this challenge.

    MAC Whenever you Call eyeshadow. I pulled this out to use in place of the Smashbox one that I panned. There's a dip in there. This colour looks like a dupe for UD Half Baked. Again, very wearable.

    No 7 Translucent pressed powder. Can see the ring under the product so don't know how long it will be before I hit pan.

    OPI Mini - at the moment I am using Time for a Napa. Just pulled it out randomly. Speaking of OPI (and not that I'm enabling), there is a TSV today and the pink colours are gorgeous. Emma is buying it for me for my birthday present.
    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!

    PP list update
    Botanics eye cream
    Jessica Phenomenon Oil mini
    ABC Tea Tree skin wash 1000ml
    Batiste Blush - the large can
    Happy Days (or whatever it is called now) conditioner (cut open)
    A body oil from Haiti
    Aussie Shampoo - decanted into pump bottle
    Laura Geller Spackle - may need to cut this open soon as there is a lot of air in there and it's difficult to squeeze.
    L'Occitane Immortelle oil make up remover
    Caudalie Serum
    No 7 Beautiful Skin face wipes
    Bath & Body Works Pumpkin hand wash

    2 UUs from the list:-

    I've mentioned the oil in an earlier post.

    The L'Occitane oil make up remover is lovely and I've ordered a full size.

    There may be a flurry of UUs from the above as the eye cream tube is pretty flat, the Tea Tree skin wash bottle feels really light, the Batiste is spraying part product part air, the conditioner is cut open, will be cutting open the Spackle tomorrow and the hand wash has very little left in it.

    I am going to TA a lipgloss as well. I repainted my nails yesterday in OPI Germanicure by OPI and pulled out L'Oreal Flashdance to match. It has glitter in it and I don't like the feel of this one my lips. I've probably never liked it but am going to trash it once I repaint my nails. I think I may have bought it for the name - love that song. Spooky thing is I was in ASDA on the way to work today and they were playing it.

    One UU this morning:

    Paula's Choice Skin Balancing Toner sample WPNBA. This was alright but I'm not too impressed by it. I prefer more hydrating toners.

    I have found a new FB group which may help me to destash (and, unfortunately restash!). It's called List it .... Gift it. Items are offered up for the price of postage and people who want the items post a comment requesting the same. Each poster is assigned a concurrent number. After 24 hours the post is closed and the recipient 's number chosen randomly. I've "applied" for some items and have offered a Laura Geller blush that I'm posting today. Might be worth other forumites posting on there to get rid of older items. I would not have offered the blush up for sale because I don't know it's age and I picked it up second hand myself but for the cost of just postage it won't really matter to someone if they get it and don't like it, I suppose?
    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!

    I have gathered together all my already used eyeliners and I am testing them out one day at a time and if they don't make the grade I am getting rid. I hate to do it but the damage was done long ago. The first one to go was

    byTerry Bronze Generation - this was a full size eyeliner which came in a beauty box and I was pretty excited to try it, I did and didn't like it so it has been sat around for a long time so I tried it again. It is a greeny bronze colour and very creamy - a bit too creamy and intense for me, by the end of the day there is nothing left on the lash line (I only used it on lower lash line) all the colour has migrated down in a smudgy, glittery mess. For the price of this brand I would expect way more so out it goes.

    I have cut open my small tube of 8hr cream so that should be finished in the next 5 years. My shampoo, conditioner and an eyeshadow are almost done too.

    The Bath & Body Works Pumpkin hand wash is UU. It stopped pumping so I tipped the last of it onto my bath lily this morning in the shower.

    Have decanted an Avon Winter Dreamland shower gel into a pump dispenser to use as handwash in the kitchen in it's place.

    Nothing much to report here. Aldi have some Beauty Specialbuys coming up at the weekend - Sunday. There is no eye cream on offer, I had hoped they would bring the soya one back, but I do have plenty, anyway. I ordered some micellar water, as I am trying to use fewer wipes, and use cotton wool pads instead. Free postage.

    Val used the phrase 'body lily', I knew exactly what she meant, I've seen them called so many things, though:

    Body puff
    Shower puff
    Body lily
    Shower lily
    Body mop
    Shower mop
    Body rose
    Shower/bath scrunchie
    Pouf loofah
    Bath/shower (mesh) ball
    Mesh sponge
    Bath/shower buffer
    Loofah ball

    So, definitely, nobody can agree what these items are ..

    Edit, I looked to see if there were any I hadn't thought of and came across this

    "Whether you call it a luffa, loofa, loufa, loofah, lufa, pouf, or something else entirely, our mesh bath and shower sponge will keep your skin healthy and smooth like never before.."

    It's not a loofah, though, those are these

    Love your post. I only called it a lily because that's what it said on the Sainsburys label. To me the word lily sounds like lady parts! I usually call it a puff x

    Hello ladies!

    kaidson
    *goggles enviously then faints*

    Right, so I have many (alas boring ins this weekend) and a few outs. All were bought on special offer and many earned me lots of points at the B00ts special event. And we all know what points make, don't we? That's right...-70% sale purchases next year!

    OUT:

    1 x Mitchum deodorant: have bought again. HG product.
    1 x Corsodyl daily mouthwash: have bought again - dentist makes this a HG product.

    IN:

    (BTW, did I mention that I was gifted a bottle of perfume for Christmas and a perfume and moisturizer set for Christmas? Both very nice and one has become my day perfume and the other has joined my evening perfumes.)
    3 x Mitchum deodorant: was a decent price
    6 x Corsodyl Daily: was a decent price and got me lots of B00ts points!
    2 x Sooperdrug own brand dry shampoos: on offer. I'll give them a go.

    Right, those are my confessions for now. Happy using up!
    Please call me 'Pickle'

    A few INs today:

    Etude House Sunprise Must Daily Lotion SPF50+ 50g
    Etude House Sunprise Airy Finish SPF50 55ml
    Skinfood Beauty in a Food Sheet Mask


    I placed an order at the end of last month for some Asian skincare products. I had ordered something else as well, but they cancelled it because they couldn't get any stock from their suppliers, and they refunded the money for that item, which is good of them. The sheet mask is a GWP I'm excited to try these sunscreens, Asian sunscreens are more cosmetically elegant than most Western ones

    I have some INs.

    Flores Mare eye cream. Looking forward to trying this.

    My Feelunique order came but I may be returning something as I am in dispute with them. The free gift that I spent an allocated amount for which to qualify appeared in the Shopping Bag but not at Checkout. I continued with the order thinking that it was excluded from Checkout as it was not something for which I was paying hence why it did not appear. I emailed them immediately stating it had been in SB and could they ensure it was sent. Got a blunt generic email telling me the item was never in my SB as they were out of stock and the offer over. Further m that they would not offer a replacement but I could have a 20% off code instead. I was livid to say the least and have emailed them stating their site did not advise me of the unavailability of the item and demanding a replacement. If I don't get a reasonable response (which I don't think I will) I'm returning the Elemis kit. So INs so far:-

    L'Occitane oil make up remover.

    The other items ordered were for MRM and Emma.
