Post in Besides Beauty

The Fabz No Buy Challenge

I figured we needed an official thread for this.  The goal is to detox from frequent beauty purchases (beauty basics exempt) for one month beginning on March 1st.   This is the place to give tips and tricks on your willpower, support for it, and whatever random cravings that may come your way!

 

Good luck, ladies!

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

YAY!  Just Finished up my Balancing Moisturizer today, and will probably finish up my old lip balm pot by Saturday as well as my hand cream! If I were doing project 10 pan, I'd be 3 down and 7 to go ^.^  Also I think I may be nearing the bottom of my serum, but I can only tell by weight on that one unfortunately >.>

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

moregun89------ Ohhhh do the project 10 pan with me!! Puuuleeezze? I've feel like I'm the only one posting in there, its like I'm talking to myself. I have 3 more products to go but I am noticing that its mostly skincare that I'm using up...and makeup is what I'm really supposed to be working on (which I am, it just takes awhile). But if I did a makeup only no-buy it would take me at least 6 months to use up 10 products...and I dont want to go that long without buying nothin'. Smiley Sad

 

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

Okeee fine Smiley Tongue  I'm getting close to finishing a lot of things, or what feels like a lot so why not Smiley Tongue

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

YAY! Oh and day 7 accomplished.

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

ONE WEEK! *celebrates!*

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

We should throw ourselves a party once this is done!

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

I'm doing proj 10-pan, except in the finishing product thread cuz I can't find the 10pan one. I'm done with 4/6. Grrrr, I need to remember to use up the other 2. The masks are gonna be a bit difficult since I only use those 1-2x a week.

 

Oh I'm sure we are gonna have a party, as in a sephora purchasing party for those who are bursting to buy. =X

 

That puppy pic is from google. Me no can haz pet, sadly.

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

I really want the new burts bees hydrating mask. My skin is dry right now, and every single mask I own is a clay mask which would just dry my skin out even more so no thanks. I have a couple more sample packets of the mask from tata harper, which I like...its a gel mask though, and not moisturizing. Its been at least a week since I've used it though...will try to use it tomorrow.

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

I will post there for my next 10-pan set (well, 10-skincare set).

 

Have you ever tried oats/yogurt/honey mask? I was super tempted to buy Fresh Rose, but manage to talk myself out of it, partially because I really enjoyed that DIY mask. It's great at hydrating (honey/yogurt) and mattifying (oats/honey).

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

I havent ever tried a DIY mask. I've used skincare with those ingredients though. I know that I've used 2 face creams by Korres, one was yoghurt, and one was honey, and I've tried a oats bar soap cleanser (which I hated because it scratches my hands raw every time I tried to lather up).

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

I heard somewhere that a honey only mask is amazing. I have never tried it but I'm nervous to be so sticky... I'm a texture kind of person and that is not my fav. It may be nice to try is since I just purchase a HUGE jug of honey at cosco. Anyone try the honey mask ? was it as good as I've heard ?

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

Honey only is nice after you rinse it off, but it's sticky and messy and much better when mixed with other things. I have combination skin, so the oats does mattify and when I rub it off after it dries, it provides some exfoliation. For hydration mask, I strongly recommend doing half honey and half plain whole milk yogurt. Yogurt makes it feels sooo good like your skin is just drinking it in. If you care about texture, try it. But it has to be the whole milk/fat and plain (no sugar/flavor) kind.

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

Week 1 done! 3 more to go!

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

Congrats ladies! I hope everyone is doing great so far. I almost forgot I was even doing this the other day as I was browsing Walgreens (yes...again!). I snapped out of it and walked out with my candy and formula Smiley Tongue

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

Its okay to browse, both in store and online. This isnt an anti-window shopping thread lol. Plus, I love looking at new things.

 

Okay I know that a lot of you guys have tried NYX. What are the lip glosses like? Texture/pigment/smell wise? I saw a gorgeous pink (beige) at the grocery store the other day, they have a massive selection of neat colors. I've only used their chubby eyeliner, and I gave it away lol.

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

I've been told that the lipglosses have a strange scent to it. Other than that they are quite pretty.

Re: The Fabz No Buy Challenge

swfupload_5368192620242057150.gifI just added a bunch of orange lipsticks to my shopping list. I've been wanting one since last summer and the right kind of orange looks really nice on me.
