No-Buy for the Remainder of August? Anyone Up For It?

 

No, I can't believe that I'm suggesting it either.

 

I just looked at what I ordered this weekend with the extra point event and it's a total of 11 orders and over $1100.  I spent at least that much in July also (just at Sephora). For me, it's not really about the money. It's more realizing that at this rate of accumulating things I'm not taking time to enjoy anything. 

 

I've never officially tried a no-buy. Anyone else want to give it a shot? It's only for 13 days. Not a huge commitment.

 

Note: This can't be like that No-Buy July thread that turned into a total Enibbler Event.

Good job! For me, I'm trying to avoid the mall AT ALL COSTS because I know if I go into the mall, I'll pass a Sephora, and I'll somehogo justify to myself that I have to go in and buy something.

Yay! Good for you. I probably would have gone "to swatch and get some samples" and then bought something, haha. Best to attempt to avoid the mall, even though I've declared it online no-buy for me because I found an amazing deal on perfume yesterday!

Well i may have slipped. But it was $1, Lol

I saw the New Iphone 5 Sephora Case, and immediately added a Sephora Creamy Body Wash Cap to my basket and the Case and checked out.

Maybe the no-buy has to be modified to allow for orders under $5 that are made strictly to take advantage of a no-minimum bonus...

Re: No-Buy for the Remainder of August? Anyone Up For It?

Because I *might* have made two very very small orders this week....

@annekevdb--- I guess we'll have to vote to amend the rules :smileyhappy:

I wonder how long it'll be until Sephora stops selling those individually online now that so many people have free shipping :smileyhappy:

 

I don't think $1 counts Arielaaaaaaaa.

You're fine. Enjoy your case :smileyhappy:

Re: No-Buy for the Remainder of August? Anyone Up For It?

Lol I wonder if they will stop with those! I hope not. I love them. I've got like 12 of Them but this was the first time I made an order with just one....

LOL I wonder if they will ship it in a box and a bunch of paper....I really wish they used bubble wrap envelopes sometimes, but then I guess there'd be more breakage in transit.

i got an eyeshadow in bubble wrap and it totally broke and exploded, but if they could have done that when I only ordered a lipgloss that would have been so much better! such a waste of materials... sight sephora....

I once got my order in an bubble wrap envelope just about 2 months ago.  I think I had onlly ordered a Lipstick Pencil and lip brush.  I was surprised, but thought it was good for them to save on shipping.

I've never tried them.  Which scents do you like?

Re: No-Buy for the Remainder of August? Anyone Up For It?

I got the strawberry and lemon ones in the past and didn't love them. The lemon smelled like a cleaning product. Also I like to get ridiculously bubbly in the shower, so while it was probably enough shower gel to get me clean, I was left unsatisfied with the amount. I am probably crazy though.

Re: No-Buy for the Remainder of August? Anyone Up For It?

I have two of the Orange, Strawberry, Blueberry, Orange, and lemon, and one Green tea. I've only used the Green tea one and it smelled really good, not like green tea in my opinion. But they are nice body washes.

Re: No-Buy for the Remainder of August? Anyone Up For It?

When you use the fruity ones let me know how they are. I'm curious whether they smell like real fruit or artificial/chemically.

arielaaaaaaaa

Re: No-Buy for the Remainder of August? Anyone Up For It?

I sure will, I'm really curious how the Blueberry smells, I've never really smelled too many things Blueberry scented lol.

DoctorsMrs

Re: No-Buy for the Remainder of August? Anyone Up For It?

Me either, just actual blueberries and they don't smell all that much haha

arielaaaaaaaa

Re: No-Buy for the Remainder of August? Anyone Up For It?

Haha I will use it soon! I'm now curious all over again and need to try it!! I'll let you know! :smileyhappy:

Re: No-Buy for the Remainder of August? Anyone Up For It?

I look forward to your post-shower report :smileyhappy:
