No Buy July!

Having gone through my makeup collection extensively the past week, I've decided to go on a 'No Buy July' challenge (which includes not buying necessities such as makeup remover and brush cleansers, since I have loads of deluxe samples to go through.) As an avid supporter of both Sephora stores and Sephora.com, this might be difficult, but I'm still determined Smiley Happy.

 

My goal is to make it through the entire month of July without any purchases, and if possible, until my birthday in August.

 

If any of you beautyholics are also planning on a No Buy July, please comment below (and help each other through the next month-ish! Smiley Very Happy)

Re: No Buy July!

I'm not sure how old everyone is here, so I'm not really sure if age factors into it so much, I'm only 19, but I usually change my nightly moisturizer every day because of all the deluxe samples I have, so I'm not too worried, I've been blessed by the skin gods lol, I rarely break out and I have pretty good skin without anything so my skin isn't too sensitive to change.

Re: No Buy July!

I'm with you on sensitivity! I rarely try new products when I'm on vacation to avoid breakouts. So, wendyomgwar, I'm jealous! But have a great vacation! Totally well-deserved with this whole no spending biz Smiley Very Happy

Re: No Buy July!

I give stuff I will not use to my friends and family, but what a great sentiment to give your items to those who are really lacking!

Re: No Buy July!

I've learned that giving should not just be limited to the holidays Smiley Happy

Re: No Buy July!

I'll have to take a picture of how I store my vials of perfume samples! If I mention anything about buying a perfume anytime in the next year, you have my permission to call me out lol. That Origins GinZing took forever to finish. I can finally say it's in my empties bag at the moment.

 

One thing I've learned is that people will always, always happily take any makeup that didn't work for me. What didn't work for me might work for them, vice versa Smiley Happy

Re: No Buy July!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks she has too much makeup in her collection and needs to start using it up! Smiley Happy

Re: No Buy July!

When I know I'm not going to be leaving the house or doing anything but errands, I make that day a testing day and don't use any full-sized products.  It makes me get through my samples (admittedly, I give 50% of mine to my mother) and try new things.

Re: No Buy July!

Hahaha maybe that's the reason my mom never feels the need to buy any makeup and skincare! I just give things I have dupes of or skincare for mature skin to her instead.

Re: No Buy July!

Not too impressed with the VIB skincare sample bag with the $35 purchase, but I'm perfectly fine with that! Smiley Happy

Re: No Buy July!

Hmmm... I was subconsciously thinking about what I was going to go check out I'm glad I'm leaving this weekend and I can't go visit Sephora lol. I was more interested in the 100 points. The bag actually looks cute too lol.
