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. thatโ€™s 1 foil a day unless I decide to stack more than one! Hereโ€™s what Iโ€™ve picked randomly!

Re: Foil Challenge

Ohhh, those are foils of some fabulous products I spy here @ather! ๐Ÿ˜ 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 weโ€™re at the height of the summer season here.

Re: Foil Challenge

@itsfi  Thanks! I am copying you! Thereโ€™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, Iโ€™ll be interested to hear your take on it as a serum under the amazing BRC! ๐Ÿ˜Š I donโ€™t know if Iโ€™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, Iโ€™m not seeing it anymore at Sephora; not sure if theyโ€™re reformulating or if theyโ€™re just no longer having that particular brand of theirs at Sephora. ๐Ÿค” 

Re: Foil Challenge

@itsfi  I was very underwhelmed by the AP. I donโ€™t think it added much. I have many other serums that I like more including Glaze! And I wouldnโ€™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 canโ€™t pinpoint anything but itโ€™s my number 1 suspect ๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ•ต๐Ÿป I have tried other AP products before and remember loving them. I also noticed itโ€™s not on Sephora. I wonder if they didnโ€™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 ๐Ÿง

Re: Foil Challenge

@CynthieLu  Itโ€™s ONE/SIZE by Patrick Starrr Secure the Blur Makeup Magnet Primer 1.18 oz/ 35 mL  I really enjoyed it. I havenโ€™t tried a ton of one size and it made me want to try more. But right now Iโ€™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 ๐Ÿ˜…

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 ๐Ÿคฃ

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 ๐Ÿ’š

Re: Foil Challenge

@Mellmars1185 You're a smart mama ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: Foil Challenge

@CynthieLu Haha, thank you. I am unsure if I should count this as a foil lol๐Ÿค”

Re: Foil Challenge

Definitely count it!! @Mellmars1185 

Re: Foil Challenge

It goes in The Wins category for sure ๐Ÿ˜โ€Œ @Mellmars1185 

Boys are sooooo hard โ€Œ๐Ÿ˜…

Re: Foil Challenge

I didnโ€™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 ๐Ÿ† , itโ€™s a slower progression. ๐Ÿข 

Re: Foil Challenge

@itsfi  I agree. I think it also ebb and flows with the months. Itโ€™s hard to always find something that always works. I tend to have a bunch of acids or peels and my skin isnโ€™t tolerant to them now. I might try again in the summer and if I still am struggling Iโ€™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, thereโ€™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! ๐Ÿ˜Š

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

You are doing excellent and they will get used in time for sure โค๏ธ Your progress is there and you are using them up.  ๐Ÿ˜€
