April 2015 No Buy Thread

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody, I thought I would start the no buy thread for April early, looking forward to it. I am almost finished with my project of using all my foil samples (80). In April, I will work on a project pan to use up all my deluxe samples in the area of body care, skin care, and hair care. My goal is to use them all up, then use my full size items in these categories (I have far fewer full size items than I do samples). I want to get down to my ideal collection which is just to have one (and maybe one backup) of each hair, skin, and body product. 


To begin, I sorted and inventoried my deluxe samples:





2 makeup remover

3 shower gel

4 conditioner (regular, rinse out)

4 hand cream

4 toner

7 shampoo (includes 2 minis of shampoo/shower gel, bubble bath 3 in 1, which I do use on hair and body)

9 face cleansers (includes 2 small face soaps)

9 eye creams

10 serums

10 masques

10 peels/scrubs

15 body lotion/oil (includes 2 oils for hair, body, and face)

17 face creams in tube (does not include any sunscreens that are tinted - those are with my makeup)

20 face creams/oils in bottles and jars

20 hair treatments (dry shampoo, leave in conditioners, hair oil, hair perfume, hair masque, styling products)


Total deluxe samples: 144!





I have so many samples because in 2014 I tried many beauty subs, purchased many boxes from Beauty Bar warehouse sales, and also purchased some beauty advent calendars. 


I don't have a project for my nail polish, perfume, and makeup yet. I will work on one after I get going on this project. 


For my financial goal, in April I want to pay off my Netbook (about $170), which has a promotional APR. 


Happy April!

    • Actually, people always spend plenty of time to remove makeup, have your ever tried the fast way to do that. If you never see, just look at here, a ultrasonic facial device has a powerful function to remove makeup effectively and quickly. 😘
    • wow, so cool! It is wonderful skin care tips. Love it!!!
    • Hi, I use anti-aging serum from anahitaonlinestore.com. It works really great for me. I use it after cleaning and before applying my daycream. I guess everybody has to find what really works for them.
    • I've recently become more and more invested in makeup but the only problem is I can't get my make up to apply smoothly, especially over my nose. I've tried using a motorised and have a good cleansing routine for my face but when eve I try to put my foundation on it becomes all caky around my nose (I use bare minerals powder) Can anybody suggest anything to stop tis happening. 
    • This seems to be true of Damien. We have completely stopped traveling somewhere far since we got cats. There are three of them now. We made a special backyard house for them - https://thepetsmaster.com/best-outdoor-cat-houses/ They can live there for several days if we leave for a short while. However, one of us always stays at home during the holidays. This is our price as the owner of wonderful cats.
