    No Buying Unnecessary Toiletries June 2019

    No Buying Unnecessary Toiletries June 2019 31st May 19 at 9:28 AM
    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 pinkfluffybabe 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'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!

    No you're not rambling! I also have a lot of moles so I'm careful to use sunscreen, I use the sports one so not sure if that's different, I'll have a look into it.

    I think the general agreement is, even if you have sun protection, you need to take precautions. i.e. avoid sun between certain hours etc.

    I have been to Zero Waste shop in town to refill my shower gel bottle with Faith In Nature coconut body wash. I also UU'ed a bottle of Elvive Extraordinary Oil Hair conditioner. Sold one mini lipgloss online and will dispatch tomorrow.

    ins


    I ordered the Liz Earle essentials which came with a try me kit containing 1 cloth, 100ml C&P, Eyebright, moisturiser and IBST minis. I ordered the Dry/Sensitive moisturiser this time and my skin feels more on the dry side. Lots of ins this month but shouldn't need anything else for a long while.

    I have cut open Autograph Confident Boost Primer I got from M&S beauty calendar last year. This was surprisingly good. It has a serum-like feeling to it and definitely works to hydrate your skin. WMBA in full size in the future.

    REN Neroli & Grapefruit Body Wash 200ml WNBA. I liked this at first, but the more I used it, the more the smell became boring to me. Will replace with one of my two body washes in my stash. I'm down to two body washes and a cleansing bar now, I'm shocked and glad haha.

    Some INs to report - M&S Ultimate Sleep Cream - I have no night cream left so this was needed. Came with a gift set with travel size day and night creams.
    Also Loreal Age Perfect Toner with vitamin C- I'm out of toner and don't want to pay much for it. Bought this one from Wilko to give it a go.

    I assume then that it's the same as with any sunscreen, you can tan through them all as they don't block 100% of rays, ultrasun just has a formula that stays on your skin longer.

    You can get sunblock if you want to block the sun completely, I think the ones with zinc oxide and titanium oxide labelled as mineral suncreens, block rays rather than absorbing them as sunscreen does.

    Hope that helps x

    Margaret Dabbs hand cream. WNBA. Would give away if I got another in a subscription box. Smelt synthetic and having now switched back to Bath and Body Works feel that it was not so effective either.


    Molten Brown Jasmin and Sun Rose shower gel. WNBA. Probably would use if I got another in a subscription box.

    Of the 7 by Summer, I am nowhere near finishing the never ending brow pencil, not a chance of hitting pan on the blush and even though the eyeshadow has a big dip there is no pan. The mascara is only a mini and has been in use for at least 6 months but it is still going strong plus it is a fab mascara that I am unlikely to purchase myself so I want to get all the use out of it I can.

    An update from me:-

    UU
    Avon Naturals Aloe & Macadamia 2-in-1 Shampoo & Conditioner 250ml - WBA but I find the other 'flavours' do more for me!
    DKNY Be Delicious Body Lotion 100ml
    Dove Deodorant 75ml Compressed - Invisible Dry
    Dove Spray Deodorant 125ml - Beauty Finish
    Femfresh Powder 200g x 2
    Johnson's Baby Cornstarch Powder 255g - WDBA, HG but they've replaced it (see below!)
    Johnson's Baby Oil 250ml - Aloe Vera
    Lancôme Eau Micellaire Confort 200ml - WMBA, nice enough but I prefer my HG Eau Micellaire Douceur.
    L'Occitane Overnight Reset Serum 1ml
    The Body Shop Peppermint Candy Cane Shower Gel 250ml
    The Body Shop Berry Bon Bon Shower Gel 250ml

    A special mention but not a good one.....
    Johnson's Cottontouch Baby Powder 400g - WDNBA, this stuff is HIDEOUS! I don't honestly know how they think otherwise, it clumbs so badly in the bottle and clumps off your skin at the merest hint of moisture, it's not a batch thing either as this is the second bottle from a different batch and they've both been awful! Complaint being sent to Johnson's! SO upset they discontinued the cornstarch powder and replaced it with this!

    TA - Beauty Pie Super Retinol Eye Cream 15ml - I have decided Retinol products are not for me, I don't like the way they work on your skin and since I don't have problem skin, I don't think I need them.

    GA - Clearout of a few things I won't use
    7th Heaven Strengthen nail & cuticle finger masques
    Avon Advance Techniques Heat Protection Spray 100ml
    Avon True Nutra Effects Dual Action Eye Make-Up Remover 125ml - I've heard this can sting and since my eyes are very sensitive anyway, I won't risk it!
    Clarins Eau Dynamisante 5ml
    Elizabeth Arden White Tea Body Cream 100ml
    Jurlique Exfoliating Hand Treatment 100ml - can't see the point in this!
    No7 Youthful Glycolic Peel Kit - I used 6 of 8 treatments and loved it but there's no point doing just two in a row and you can't really tag them on to another round of 8, so someone can see if they react to it before buying the full set!
    Paula's Choice Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment 30ml - I couldn't stand the smell, also GA for the reasons I TA'd the retinol eye cream.
    Percy & Reed Session Hold Spray 50ml
    Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Buttercream 50ml x 2
    Superdrug Charcoal Toothpaste Sensitive 75ml - I can seemingly use the normal one despite having sensitive teeth, and this one doesn't whiten as well.
