Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

So, it's time to go on an extended no buy. I have more than I could ever enjoy for quite awhile.  However, if you have gotten to know me a bit- it's going to be easier said than done!

 

So, this thread is hopefully going to be a support group for me- and anyone else who wants to join me in a summer of no buy.

 

The tricky thing is that I've got about 40% of my toner left and maybe 20% of my daytime moisturizer- and I see pan on my HG concealer.  I have to buy the concealer since it's a staple product (and I have used up all of the other concealers that match my skin). I'd like to use up some skincare before repurchasing my daytime moisturizer- but if my skin reacts, I'll revisit the issue.

 

When will the no buy end?  I'm not sure, but fall collections will be on counters, if not on the leaves!

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

@buzzbee3- No scent. The tiny bottle lasted me a couple of months.

 

Here's the shaving cream:

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

I really feel as if I have to try this shaving cream now. Most shaving creams and shaving my legs in general leave me with a raw feeling afterwards. Its so unpleasant. 

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

Well, it's not my intention to enable anyone...

 

One of the most important things I've found is to use a shave cream like FAB and follow up with a heavy shea butter cream (even before I moisturize my face).

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

I'm thinking of placing an order for the AmorePacific code. I still have that $100 GC (I've had it for 8 whole days & didn't use it yet!!!! WOO HOO) and need to return a few items in store tomorrow. Now to figure out what to get & NOT go over that $100 budget + amount of what's returned. 

Stay strong & don't get the purple givenchy mascara! It's beautiful, I love it, but you're on a no-buy. Of course if you place an order, then make sure it's in your cart. But seriously... stay strong! 

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

Stay good with your budget!

 

I want the AmorePacific code.  I need only the FAB shave cream. The beautiful thing is that the AmorePacific is online-only- so I'll just go into the store with cash.

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

I'm proud I stuck to the no-buy today despite the awesome 200+ sale section (tho it have more to do with the fact that they are out of stock by the time I decided than any self-restraint on my part. Boohoo...I want a gold polish....).

 

Cheers to months ahead!

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

Good job!

 

Truth be told, I didn't even peek at the sale section.

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

@starletta8  I am so proud of you for not even peeking Smiley Happy

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

I just peeked at Urban Decay's website and they've put some of the discontinued eyeliner shades back up.

 

UGH!

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

I just noticed the crazy amount of stuff added to the sale, although just about everything seems to say that it's sold out. I guess it's for the best...less temptation!

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

Just wanted to bump this thread and say I'm in with you for the summer, and it should be for A LOT longer. 

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

My no buy is technically over, but I'm trying not to go crazy. However, these new codes up are tempting be big time!!

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

Still no purchases- not even the FAB shave cream!  I'll pick that up Friday, though.  If the appliance repair costs less than I thought, it's going to be rough not to treat myself...

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

Use that will power! You can do it! :-) You're already doing great so far! I'm sorry to hear that you had some unexpected expenses pop up. Those are basically the worst. Last year I had an assessment on my condo of $600 right around Christmas. So much for my year-end bonus :-\  

 

Anyway, there will always be new and fun things to tempt us, and odds are something really amazing won't crop up until the end of summer. Hopefully, the waiting and saving will be worth it! I bought some new bins to organize my beauty products and had some fun going through my stash and sorting/putting everything away. Having a chance to see my beauty collection as a whole definitely rekindled the no-buy and 10-pan-esque spirit in me! I really don't NEED anything for quite a while, and I have Birchbox/Ipsy to keep my shopping/exploring temptation at bay.

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

ITKIT and the AmorePacific are making it tough!!

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

Amore is tough but itkit is ok. Sephora have kit promos like those ~twice a year at least so you still have a chance in the fall. Some of the deluxe samples are offered/recycled many times. You can get those perfume samples any time any where. The mascara, powder, Sephora stuff and lip products I've seen as promo and perks before. So, that leaves only ~2 items in each bag that may or may not appear as promo/perks in the future.

 

I was only able to resist itkit cuz there's only 1 deluxe I want the Laura Mercier polish, and I'm willing to bet it will reappear before I finish using my curren supply of scrubs (2 full tubes, at least a year's worth).

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

I think it's time for me to join. I tried to go one month without buying anything back in feb. but it didn't work. Literally the next day i bought some items.. haha. The only exception to this no buy is my IPSY Monthly Glam Bag. Since I cant unsub for this month anymore.

 

I think I'll start with a 1 month no buy. I am determined to get through this successfully! Will keep you updated! Smiley Happy Wish me luck.

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

Well... Just broke my 1 month no buy... I ordered some new makeup and brushes today. Well at least I tried and lasted 5 days..

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

I'll never join this I'm too much of a rebelSmiley Tongue

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

I was doing so good on the No Buy! But i was really wanting a Bronzer and that turned into a $200+ order!! Oh well!! No buy for me is over! My birthday is in a few weeks and i have a ton of more stuff i am wanting to try!! I just hope i get enough gift cards!!I think  i went a month and a half without buying anything so that itself is already a good accomplishment!!

Re: Starletta8's Summer of No Buy Support Thread

arielaaaaaaaa, it looks like you, myself, and drragon all have birthdays coming up the first week of July! I've been trying to keep my spending at bay until after I see what I'm gifted to go treat myself. Apparently there's a new OCC lip tar set that I might just have to have :-)
