I keep falling 10 points short of the next $10 (I'll have 290 after this month). So I'm saving for now. I've bought a lot of skin, body & makeup stuff with Christmas money though so I think I'll look into hair care products with my BB points. But we'll see. Hoping to have a good amount by my 6 month to use the anniversary code too!

The nude tude palette is an AMAZING palette I love it! And it kinda makes me feel better about not having naked or naked 2 :) since it fulfills my neutral needs and more <3 I'm saying get it ladies, you won't regret it :D

I'm a point hoarder:  After this month's reviews are done, I will have 985 points on my main account.  And I'm just not seeing anything in the shop I really want, so the balance will just keep going up up up, although my annual subscription *will* be up in a month or two, so maybe I'll try to use the points for that since they used to allow that.  I had points on other accounts that I used for some shopping sprees:  The stila lip gloss and smudgestick holiday sets, nail polish, hair pins, and a few other things I can't recall.  I still haven't used any of the gloss, but I *love* the eyeliners!  I'm tempted to buy another pack so I have duplicates in my makeup bag, but I *will* stay strong!  One set is plenty, especially considering the UD liners and shadow pencils and tarte shadow sticks I have.  I'm thinking about some of the other smudgesticks in colors that weren't in the set, like dark blue or peacock, though. I don't have any dark blue liners, so I'm not duplicating anything.  I'm just expanding my color options.  

 

And I *was* going to splurge on another bottle of Nuxe multipurpose oil because it worked wonders for me last winter -- but then I received a $100 Chella moisturizer in a sneakpeeq box that made my skin FREAK THE HELL OUT, which caused me to Google "allergic eczema" on Christmas Eve since it had been going on all weekend, and then I discovered my HG moisturizer when I was desperately searching for *something* to treat the nastiness:  Cetaphil.  Walgreen's version of Cetaphil, to be exact.  Less than eight bucks for sixteen ounces.  No need for that Nuxe oil.  

 

If Birchbox started carrying Tokyomilk, though, I would run through those points *very* quickly.  Tainted Love is the only alcohol-based fragrance I've been able to deal with in a few years, and I might be able to handle other scents from them if I could tear myself away from TL long enough to try something else from the line.  Or, hey, I'll settle for TL hand cream.  Oh, and Carnival Wax.  I really, *really* want 1971, but I'm having a hard time justifying $90 for one rollerball when I flit from one perfume oil to another to another to another.  It will take me probably at least ten years to use that sucker up.  But if I could use points for it, I would snatch it up in an instant.

I'm thinking I'm going to use the points I've been saving, only 400 ish to get the Oscar de la renta Live in Love perfume. I've been with BB 9 months now and got the 9mnth coupon code for 20% so I don't think I can hold out any longer.

I just bought theBalm Balm Jovi Palette when BB was offering it for $24.5 along with Shea Terra African Black soap and only paid $3 out of pocket. I also already have over 100 points again. Not really sure what I want to save for. Maybe a clarisonic.

I got my husband some Beard Lube for Christmas and then got myself the Mary Lou and the Juicy Couture rollerball. Now I can't decide between saving up for a Clarisonic (which has been recommended to me several times for helping my KP) or picking up the Stainiac and the BodyBuilder mascara (can you tell I really like theBalm?) because makeup is fun and I like fun. I love the point system so much. Everyday I go look at what's in the shop and I've changed my mind about 1000 times on what I'm going to get next.

I have used my points on Benefit's Porefessional, the Borghese Spa Divine gift set, and the Harvey Prince Scents of Purpose gift set.  I love all of these purchases.  The awesome point system makes it well worth the 2 years I have subscribed (even if I have had plenty of dud boxes) :)

I bought the smaller size Trefle Pur from Atelier Cologne.  Love that scent!   I used points completely for that (and had a 20 or 25% off code, so that was great).  I've used codes and a combo of points/money to buy the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant (which has become my HG exfoliator), some of the teas, the Zoya nail polish remover (also has become HG product), and something else, but I can't remember what just at the moment.  Oh, a Pangea cleanser.  It's OK.  I like it but probably won't re-purchase.  The smell is just not quite right...

I got the Juicy La Fleur 2.5 oz. and a pack of the Chauo Potato Chip pods. I haven't tried them yet but looking forward to it. For the future, I want to get the Wei Golden Root Mud Mask and the Amika Hair Mask.

Hubby had ordered me a Christmas gift that needed to be cancelled (6 months of Natural Beauty Box.  When they decided not to send January, we asked for our $ back), so I was owed a gift.  ;)  My 6 month code came in Wednesday and even though we only had $10 in points, I asked for the Clarisonic Mia.  It came in today.  Yay!  Used it for the first time tonight.  I have rosacea so my skin's pretty sensitive and I'm nervous, but hopefully it'll work its magic without too much horrible adjustment time.

 

In the past, I got the Talika Lash Conditioning Cleanser, which made my lids bright red and itchy and sensitive and swollen (took almost a month to realize it was from that and not a random allergy) and Stila In The Light palette. The palette came with a Smudge Stick and I found I LOVE it for tightlining, so I plan to buy more of those with future points.  Black and brown, at least.

My last purchase was theBalm Tall, Dark, and Handsome mascara, Sprout makeup remover, and a box of Chuao chocopods.

 

I want to try to save my points up all year and buy myself something pretty for Christmas, though...maybe a palette, or a Clarisonic, or a new perfume...ugh so many things I want.

Here's what I ended up using my points and discounts to buy. I have been wanting to try the Alicia Silverstone for Juice Beauty products for a long time. I haven't tried the CC cream, so I am hoping it works for me. I love the Kusmi tea so was happy to see them in the Pick Two sample packs. I've heard the eye masks are really good.

    • Hyaluronic acid has been a go-to item for people with dry skin. Other things you can change with your routine is to try to not stay on the shower for a long time especially if you shower or bather in warm water. Use toners that hydrate skin. Also, put on your moisturizer while skin is damp to really pack in the hydration.   Just some of the few you can do.

    • Sometimes it seems to me that students don't always understand the essence of their problem. Studying at a college or university takes a lot of time, we all went through this. I don't dispute someone else's choice. You can buy an essay if it makes your life easier. But such students must think through their actions. Check ready-made assignments. Use code plagiarism detector. It would be stupid if you get caught plagiarizing. Education fees are high enough to risk your reputation with just a few sheets of text.
