#NoBuyJanuary - Update 2

I thought I was doing well on my spending ban until Tuesday when I became aware of the Latest in Beauty The Hip and Healthy Beauty Box (£9.95 plus £3.95 P&P) which is worth over £50....and I caved and broke my ban! The box is a collaboration with Latest in Beauty and Hip & Healthy Magazine.  I must admit I do feel a little bit guilty about it. Last year when I attempted the 100 day spending ban I went completely off the rails! You can see Update 11 which shows everything I bought during the "ban" here.  I'm back on #NoBuyJanuary 


The contents are:

Neom Complete Bliss Moroccan Blush Rose Organic Hand Cream 50ml - my favourite hand cream. See my review here.

Together Health Multi-Vitamin & Mineral Food Supplement - 7 capsules

1 x Jax Coco 100% Pure Coconut Water 250ml

Aduna Boabab Fruit Pulp Powder Sachet 4.5g

Teapigs Matcha Green Tea x 2 teabags

Nourish Golden Glow Illuminating Face Shimmer 2ml - this is great for adding a touch of radiance.  See my review here.

Rude Health The Ultimate Granola 50g

Organic Superblends Alkalising Super Food Powder 5g sachet

balance Me Cleanse & Smooth Face Balm 40ml - one of my favourite balance Me products.  See my review here.

    2. Haha I was just about to say the same thing! Your handwriting is so neat! I was really tempted by that box but purely because of how much of a bargain it was and not necessarily because I wanted the products inside so I decided not to get it! x

  8. I resisted first of all - took a lot of willpower, but now I've read your post and the comments, I'm having a rethink......!! I'm especially keen to try the Nourish shimmer and am a big fan of granola and bounce balls!
