Spending Ban - Update 6

I was doing really well in week 6 until I spotted that Latest in Beauty were offering luxury samples of Caudalie The Cream and The Eye Cream (15ml & 7ml) for £14.95 (worth £50) plus P&P and I caved! ooops.  

Then after reading The Simple Things magazine I came across a company called Remedy...for and two Organic Body Butter Bars slipped into my trolley...And then on Sunday I saw April's Beautylishious spoiler and caved again as I really wanted to try the Lola's Apothecary mini bath oils which feature in April's bag - so not a good week!  A total spend of £41.20 - although I might ask for the Beautylishious bag for my birthday.


Here are the products I'm "wanting" this week - 


Saaf Face & Body Kit - the products sound interesting and are all organic and free from chemicals and from a brand I've heard of before but not tried any products.


YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat Foundation - heard so many bloggers rave about this foundation that I really want to try it!  I think I'm the only beauty blogger which hasn't tried it yet.


Serge Lutens La Fille de Berlin EDP - with notes of rich rose, pink and black pepper, violet and musk.  Sounds amazing can't wait to smell it.


Clinique All About Lips - another product I've seen raved about on beauty blogs.  May try and pick it up next Bonus Time at Harvey Nichols.




Dr Periccone No Concealer Concealer - already love the No Foundation Foundation and have seen reviews of this on several blogs recently - to name two - Sam's post here and Evelyn's here.  It looks amazing and it looks like it really works!


How's your spending ban going?  And what products are you wanting this week?

  3. Hope you didn't hurt yourself when you fell off the wagon lol! The caudalie was a bargin though :-)
    I also gave the YSL foundation - I was just wondering just last night whether to review it or not as it has been reviewed a lot! I think it's ok but it hasn't wowed me but it is a good match to my fair skin though :-) x
    Great post :-)

  10. That doesn't sound too bad, especially if the Beautylishious bag is a birthday treat! Thanks for the mention btw, that No Concealer stuff is really good! xx

  11. The parfume sounds lush, curious to sniff it too. Love the colour of the bottle. Hehe.
    You should get a sampe of foundation at ysl counter, so you can try without breaking the ban. Xx
