#NoBuyJanuary - Update 4

oooh! I made it to week 4 with only one buy which I wasn't allowed - the Latest in Beauty Hip & Healthy Beauty Discovery Box (which I'm still awaiting arrival of. Sad face)

I'm going to look back at my weekly wants lists for the last 4 weeks and decide what things I'm still going to buy.

Week 1:

This was an out-of-control list!

I was very kindly sent Indie Lee Calendula Eye Balm* from a beautiful world. A Review will be up very soon. I really don't know how I've lived for so long without this super nourishing product in my life! It's one I know I'll purchase again and again.

I reviewed Beauty Naturals Smoothing Sugar Cleanser* last week and you can see my post here. Again, I was really pleased to be sent this.

From the rest of my list from Week 1 this is what I'll purchase soon:

And...the rest of the list? Perhaps at some point but there's nothing from it I need instantly.

Week 2:

All lovely products I'd love to have in my collection. I'm tempted by...

Napiers Alkanet & Elderflower Lip Tint
Therapi Orange Blossom Balancing Honey Moisturiser

Week 3:

I am keen to have Antipodes Delight Hand & Body Cream in my collection but I am unable to source a UK stockist. Boo!

I also want to try Ayo Beauty The Collection Gift Set - Ultimate Joy but...I'm not really needing all these types of products at the moment. I'm nearly ready to buy a body scrub so I'll pick up The Body Polisher along with The Polishing Cloth.  Aren't I good.

Week 4:

Final week and final day today!  I think the four weeks of not spending have done me the world of good (hubby most definitely agrees!). I'd never have bought all the things on my wishlists and am pleased to say I'm looking more sensibly at possible purchases.

Here's my weekly wants list for week 4 - It's epic!

I can quite honestly say I want everything from this list! I have owned a bottle of the very gorgeous Frederic Malle Lipstick Rose EDP before & tried samples of Aesop Rind Aromatique Body Balm - thanks Galina for sending me them.

I'll let you know what things I eventually pick up from my wishlists.  How has your #NoBuyJanuary been?

    1. Lipstick Rose is an excellent choice. You should definitely come over to Acton and collect your 4160Tuesdays taster box in person.

    2. :) that would be amazing but I'm not in London until later in the year x

  2. I love the fact you write down what you want! Once your ban is over, whats the betting your going to go back and buy every single item!? Costly month for you ;-)

    1. Some of it is just lottery win wishlist! I wish I could x

  3. Well done! I wouldn't be able to write everything down as then I'd remember it all and have to go and buy everything on the list haha! Looking forward to your Calendula Eye Balm review - I think I'm going to have to get it in New York! Although I don't think it's much cheaper unlike some of the other products so I'll have to see how much money I have haha!

    1. You'll have an absolute ball in NYC I'd love to go! So many niche brands to buy from x
