I need help!!!

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies! I am totally new to this website BUT I love it. I would like to join this no-buy group... how does it work? I shop toooo much for stuff (specially cosmetics in general) that I do not need or already have...For instance I have a few mascaras and use/open them all at once...

I have the same problem frown.gif. I have a bad habit of buying atleast either a new mascara, lipstick, or lipgloss when I'm at ULTA, walmart, target, or where ever there happens to be make up. Like you, I have a crap load of mascara all opened. I use a different one everyday.

 

I'm on a no buy right now too, only because we're saving up for the iphone 3g that's coming out July 11th. So far, so good. It is really hard though, especially when Victor asks "is there anything you want to look at? Any make up or anything" and I hold back and say "no, I think I'm good for now"

 

I really want that iphone. I guess if you really set yourself to a no buy, you can pull it off. GOOD LUCK TO YOU!! sunshine.gif

The No-buy is a forum in which we can help support and encourage you. I know it's hard but you can do it. One thing i like to do is the like a rule in dieting, if you want it wait a little bit and if you feel like you just can't live without it later, than buy it.

 

Try to sort out what you already have in similar colors or products. No one needs 10 different brands in the same shade if they all look the same. Just imagine how many products go bad before you use them up. That helps me alot because it hurts having to throw away makeup.

Thank you so much for your support. Today I started sorting out what I have in a way that I can see it so I do not forget. This is my first step. I would love to move to commiting myself to only get something when the one I own runs out... that will be my second step but for now I am organizing what I already have.

I am on a modified no-buy. I only buy things that I LOVE. If I just "like" it, I'm not buying it. I have to LOVE it.

 

Might work?

 

Good luck!

 

Warmly,

 

Brandi

I had a similar experience last month, only it wasn't makeup I spent $150 on...it was eating breakfast before work at my local cafe!

Not to mention all the little things...9 bucks here, 6 there...it really added up!

 

I did a total financial makeover at the end of June after reading a super kick ass book on the subject written especially for women and finances. July didn't turn out as good as I had hoped, but it was better.

I've GOT to stop buying cleansers and toners and spot treatments, oh my!

    • Koreans are acknowledged globally for their flawless and glowing skin texture. And, they have been generous enough to share their 10-step skincare regime with the world. Here are a few of my favorite products that I can absolutely can't do without: Some By Mi H7 Hydromax Moisture Cream My absolute favourite is the moisturizing cream by ‘Some by Mi.’ It moisturizes your skin deeply with 7- hyaluronic acid molecules and forms a barrier to keep the moisture locked in for longer. Cleanse your face and gently apply the  H7 Hydromax Moisture Cream for soft, smooth, and supple skin. COSRX AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner Another big name in the Korean skincare industry is of COSRX. COSRX AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner is an exfoliating fluid that prevents blackheads and whiteheads while effectively eliminating the dead and flaky skin cells. Infused with natural vitamins, it double cleanses your face from deep within. The AHA BHA PHA toner is a blessing for all those who have acne-prone skin. Also check: Cosrx Favorite Set Some By Mi Aha Bha Pha 30 Days Miracle Serum The next Korean skincare product on the list is the miracle serum by Some by Mi. This low pH toner is formulated with several vitamins that heal acne, lighten skin tone, pigmentation, and dark spots. You will start witnessing the change in your skin from the first week itself. Don’t forget to shake Some By Mi Aha Bha Pha 30 Days Miracle Serum well before use as it is a water-oil based toner. Apply a generous amount of it after taking showers. Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patch If in this world overnight magic would possibly exist, it would only exist through Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patch. Put this patch overnight on your pimple and it would help in reducing the redness and cleaning away the impurities incurred from acne. Its primary asset is that it makes sure that no after-pimple mark remains on your skin. You can read more it through our first-hand review of this product here: Cosrx Pimple Master Patch: Reviews & How to Use It? Benton Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel This Korean skincare product is enriched with aloe and Propolis that help the skin in diverse ways. It soothes texture, fades the scars and brightens the skin Additionally, with aloe being its key ingredient, it helps in reducing the redness of the skin in totality.
