Spending Ban Update & a Haul

I did rubbish on my Spending ban! I think I just need to have a beauty budget - a ban seems to make me want to spend, spend, spend!

I bought these items before my ban ended oops....

Latest in Beauty CEW Beauty Awards Finalists' Discovery Box (£9.95) - I hummed and hawed over getting this box and when LIB were offering free postage I thought it would be rude not to!


My second splurge was Therapie Spring Offer (250ml bottle Boost Hair & Body Wash and Himalayan Detox Salts 400g) for £36 saving £15.  I first read about the salts at The Beauty Shortlist - I have since read so many amazing reviews - looking forward to trying both the products out (the packaging is simple but really luxe so this would make a great gift too) The set also comes with an exfoliating cloth, a sachet of Spring Detox Tea and a Step into Spring 28 Day Action Plan for a Mind & Body Detox.  

Full reviews will follow.  I used the detox salts on Friday night and I've got to say I had the best night's sleep I've had in a long time!

  1. I have a beauty budget sometimes I go over it but I find that easier to manage than going on a ban, which just makes me want to spend more! You got some great items though :) x

  5. I have a budget but regularly go over - it is a constant battle between what constitutes "groceries" ie the essentials and what constitutes the extras ie another lip balm when I already have 7 on the go, I was tempted by the CEW box too.
