July was supposed to be the start of my 3 month “No-Buy” since I had overspent in May / June. But wouldn’t you know it, my birthday happened to be in July and I rained birthday gifts down upon myself! 😀

It happened. And it was magnificent. 😀 I did also place an order from the Body Shop for some skincare because for once, I’m actually in need of some items!
A little while ago I went into the Body Shop store for a free skin analysis and they recommended a few items for me to try. I walked away with a shopping list and a sample of Oils Of Life Intensely Revitalising Sleeping Cream and the corresponding Facial Oil.
I remember Adryana liking the Sleeping Cream, so I’m excited to try it.
Then there was a 40% off sale online so I took the plunge:
Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask
Finally succumbed to the sleeping mask rage. Let’s just call it for what it is – a more intensive night cream. I will try this for once or twice a week to start off with.
Vitamin E Aqua Boost Essence
Not to be confused with the Aqua Boost Sorbet, which I’ve used and disliked (dried out my skin). I plan to try this essence with those Muji DIY sheet masks I got.
Vitamin E Nourishing Night Cream
I’m out of night creams and going through samples. This has great reviews and I’ve enjoyed most Vitamin E products.
I chose a sample of the Vitamin E Day Cream as my free sample.
I managed to stay away from Winners / Marshalls as much as possible last month even though I was faced with this:
😮 But this is the only item I bought from Winners:
COLAB Volume Extreme Dry Shampoo travel pack trio in Rio, Paris, and London. This is my favourite dry shampoo that I take for travelling.
I randomly picked up the CoverGirl Plumpify blastPro Mascara because it was on sale, and this was a recommendation from Dal of little beauty loves. Since I’m no longer counting mascaras toward my makeup Low Buy, this isn’t a cheat!
Lastly, here’s a fun little makeup related, but not actual makeup item – Paperchase makeup stickers!
I know, I’m a grown adult and I still love stickers! Would it be too meta to stick them onto my makeup products? 😛
August and September are going to be really tough. No excuses. No loopholes. Well, unless there’s an Optimum Redemption Event. 😉
