Foil Challenge

I know we all talked about this but I need it in writing to hold myself more accountable! I have picked out around 28 foils that I am hoping to get through by the end of Feb. that’s 1 foil a day unless I decide to stack more than one! Here’s what I’ve picked randomly!

Re: Foil Challenge

Ohhh, those are foils of some fabulous products I spy here @ather! 😍 Will be curious for your take on the AP moisturizer. I like it but since my skin is on the dehydrated and dry side this time of year, it works better as a serum for me. It can work as a light moisturizer for me when we’re at the height of the summer season here.

Re: Foil Challenge

@itsfi  Thanks! I am copying you! There’s 5-6 of those there so I am hoping to see how well it works. I will probably use it as more of a serum and use BRC over top! 

Re: Foil Challenge

@ather, I’ll be interested to hear your take on it as a serum under the amazing BRC! 😊 I don’t know if I’d purchase a full size for use just as a serum because there are soooo many great serums out there but it is something I consider when AmorePacific has their sets. Speaking of AP, I’m not seeing it anymore at Sephora; not sure if they’re reformulating or if they’re just no longer having that particular brand of theirs at Sephora. 🤔 

Re: Foil Challenge

@itsfi  I was very underwhelmed by the AP. I don’t think it added much. I have many other serums that I like more including Glaze! And I wouldn’t purchase it. It also had a strong perfume smell. I have a bunch of break outs now too. So hard to say who caused them. I can’t pinpoint anything but it’s my number 1 suspect 🔍🕵🏻 I have tried other AP products before and remember loving them. I also noticed it’s not on Sephora. I wonder if they didn’t do well so they pulled out? 

Re: Foil Challenge

I love the brands of all your samples @ather they are sooooo good!

 

 

 

Was that One Size a primer trial? I'm trying to read it but I can't make it out properly 🧐

Re: Foil Challenge

@CynthieLu  It’s ONE/SIZE by Patrick Starrr Secure the Blur Makeup Magnet Primer 1.18 oz/ 35 mL  I really enjoyed it. I haven’t tried a ton of one size and it made me want to try more. But right now I’m on a no spending until the spring sale and I want to use up everything I have! 

Re: Foil Challenge

@ather Great progress. I find it is so helpful to put them where you will use them. Today, i put a men's shower gel in the shower and told my son to use it 😅

Re: Foil Challenge

@Mellmars1185  So smart! Did he like it?

Re: Foil Challenge

@ather He said he did, but he didn't have too much to say, lol

Re: Foil Challenge

@Mellmars1185  my little man (4) says 10,000 words before breakfast. They must stop taking as they get older 🤣

Re: Foil Challenge

@ather I think you could be right. Mine used to talk a lot when he was that age! That is too cute. Sounds like he has a lot of energy when he wakes up 💚

Re: Foil Challenge

@Mellmars1185 You're a smart mama 😉

Re: Foil Challenge

@CynthieLu Haha, thank you. I am unsure if I should count this as a foil lol🤔

Re: Foil Challenge

Definitely count it!! @Mellmars1185 

Re: Foil Challenge

It goes in The Wins category for sure 😁@Mellmars1185 

Boys are sooooo hard ‌😅

Re: Foil Challenge

I didn’t take a picture because my night went very poorly. But I did check my progress and I am at 10 foils as of now. I think I said I would aim for 28 so I feel like I might be doing ok but I have been slipping so far. This month has been just nuts for me. But I am going to try to do better from tonight forward!! Happy using up foils everyone! 

Re: Foil Challenge

This is good progress @ather! I feel like most things, using foils ebbs and flows - some weeks you tear through them at an amazing clip and other weeks 🐆 , it’s a slower progression. 🐢 

Re: Foil Challenge

@itsfi  I agree. I think it also ebb and flows with the months. It’s hard to always find something that always works. I tend to have a bunch of acids or peels and my skin isn’t tolerant to them now. I might try again in the summer and if I still am struggling I’ll find them a new home! I am overall happy doing this challenge I should have gotten through it least 56 if I hit my target which is awesome!

Re: Foil Challenge

So true @ather! The month and the type of products we have samples of definitely influence how quickly we can go through them. I had a lot of skincare that I already knew worked for my skin or multiples of a particular product so that made it easy to work through them on a daily basis. Or I had a lot of shampoo & conditioner foils - if I use one, I use the other so right there, there’s 2 foils used. Best to listen to your skin. But it is so interesting to see and think about how we pick samples and use them. Good challenge for sure ather! 😊

Re: Foil Challenge

@itsfi  I just went through all my foils to just see. Minus the acids I have 60 skincare left. And a bag of hair care foils! I know where I need to focus on now!  Although I only wash my hair once weekly. But still nice to see progress!

Re: Foil Challenge

You are doing fabulously @ather I think if we can't hit our goals is just because life took a different turn this week or day or you know what I mean 😉

You are doing excellent and they will get used in time for sure ❤️ Your progress is there and you are using them up.  😀
