Uh-oh my spending ban went completely off the rails in week 11 and I think it's now time to end it. Ahhh... I lasted 70 odd days with a few splurges - a lot less than I'd normally be treating myself to though.
I've been enjoying shopping my stash every week - so I'm going to keep doing this. Here is what I bought during the spending ban period -
In Style Magazine for the beauty supplement in Week 3.
Sweet Cecily's Rose Body Butter and Mojito Lip Balm. See my review here. I bought these in Week 4.
In Week 6 I bought the Caudalie Set from Latest in Beauty and two Remedy..for organic body butter bars and an April Beautylishious bag (which I've still to receive).
See my review of the Remedy...for Organic Body Butters here.
In Week 7 I bought Good Housekeeping magazine which were giving away a free Balance Me Hand Cream and Marie Claire magazine which were giving away a Neal's Yard Bee Lovely Hand Cream. These are both worth £10.
In Week 8 I bought a copy of Psychologies magazine.
Week 9 saw me really caving when I bought Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm and the LIB Organic & Natural Box. You can see my reviews here and here.
In Week 10 I bought Botanicals Anti-Age Hand & Nail Serum and two try-me size pots of cleanser and foot balm (you can get the try me sizes for free just paying p&p). Reviews to follow. I also bought a April SoukSouk little green beauty box.
Finally Week 11, I bought Beaute Chinoise Beauty Tea - a Oolong infused with organic rose. It sounds simply delicious. Still to receive this. I'll be doing a mini review on it and of course my M&S and Boots haul.
I'm quite relieved to have ended my Spending Ban. It was an interesting experiment and I know I buy too many beauty products. I'll do a post later this week listing my "Wants" from the 11 weeks - and letting you know which ones I'm going to buy at some point.
How is your Spending Ban coming along?
