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

@CorgiMommy ten foils in one week is darn good!

Re: Foil Challenge

@CookieGirl1 thanks.  I really need to stop hoarding them.  My stash is getting out of control 

Re: Foil Challenge

Wow @CorgiMommy! You went through quite a few. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on everything. 

Re: Foil Challenge

@JoSometimes I am trying to give what for some are first impressions.

Re: Foil Challenge

Good work this week! @CorgiMommy  You really made a lot of progress! 🥳

I hope you have lots of fun using what you have and give yourself fun but attainable goals 💕

Your giving me good motivation to use up things that are waiting for thier turn in my collection 🙂

Re: Foil Challenge

@CynthieLu it is fun exploring new products ,  of course, that means new things to buy.

Re: Foil Challenge

I set 13 foils aside for July. I did not reach my goal again. I managed to get through 8.

For August I am not going to set a specific goal. I am going to try and use for full size products and save my foils for travel.

Re: Foil Challenge

Good job @Mellmars1185 It's not always easy to find a time and place to use up the foils,  Anyring you enjoyed in that fun mix?

Re: Foil Challenge

@CynthieLu Thank you! Tbh, I really enjoyed everything. I just noticed that with the SF cream I had a bit of a breakout while I was using it. It could have been other factors. My favourite was the Lancome cream.

Re: Foil Challenge

Oh yes @Mellmars1185  I've used that Lancome foil too, it's pretty awesome 😉

Re: Foil Challenge

I fell off the foil wagon but I took a bunch with me on vacation figuring I could work on using them up, 😅 along with bottles and trials I wanted to finish off. I think it's been going pretty well.

Everything has been nice or awesome 👌 I lucked out pretty seriously with all the items so far.

I brought too much probably but I've made a good dent in my stash 😄

Re: Foil Challenge

@CynthieLu Travelling is such a great way to use up some foils. Great progress!!

Re: Foil Challenge

Wowza, that's a lot of foils you made your way through; nice work, @CynthieLu. Ahhh, the DDG serum - I have a few foils and deluxe sizes of it, need to try it out at a time when a sale is around the corner. 😅

Re: Foil Challenge

Thank you! @itsfi  I think it's an **excellent** Hyaluronic Acid but the price 🙈 It defintley would help with a good sale 😉💕

Re: Foil Challenge

@CynthieLu  Holy cow!  You tried so many different products 😃. Glad you really enjoyed many of them!

Re: Foil Challenge

I was sooo lucky they were all so good 😉 @Cissy63 thank you 🥰

Re: Foil Challenge

@CynthieLu That’s actually a genius travelling hack! You could easily stash a bunch of them in a ziplock for the plane. Even if you’re driving, it won’t be as bulky as bringing entire bottles with you. Glad to hear they’ve all worked with your skin!

Re: Foil Challenge

Thank you! It was risky only in the sense that if I had a reaction to something I was a bit out of luck, but everything I brought was not too skin-drastic @JoSometimes.

 

I'm very happy my skin has been cool with everything. 🍀And, it feels good to use up a bit of the stockpile. 😉 

No plane just a solid long car drive 🙃 but I did over pack possibly lol

July 2023 Foils

July 2023 Foils.jpg

Eeek! 😩 My streak of not reaching for any of the foils I planned for this challenge continues for another month. 😣I had a rosacea flare up about mid-July and have been sticking to my tried-and-true skincare products, except for the new Tatcha cleansing balm, which I've been using for about 10 days now and lemme just say this - if you see a foil or sample of this beauty, pick it up, folks; pick it up!! 👍 I did use these foils and sheet mask at the beginning of the month, before my rosacea flare up. The Sulwhasoo Mini First Care Activating Serum .5 oz/ 15 mL Sulwhasoo Anti-Aging First Care Activating Serum 2.02 oz / 60 mL is lovely; if I wasn't working on some well-loved serums already, I would pick up a full size of the Sulwhasoo.

 

The Dr. Jart+ Dermask™ Clearing Solution Face Mask  sheet mask was fine; I can't say it worked to clear my skin of acne but it did add a nice light layer of hydration and for a gal with dehydrated combo skin, that is a beautiful thing. This is a sheet mask I'd use again if I had another one, but it's not one I feel I need to run out to pick up.

 

August Foil Goals

Not sure at the moment how I'm feeling about setting aside certain foils to work on for August @ather. At the same time, I feel like having a goal for the next month will be a good way to keep me motivated. I will aim for 10 foils total; about 2 foils per week. I have two work trips scheduled in August so I may have more opportunities to use up more foils. Stay tuned! 

Re: Foil Challenge

@itsfi Sorry to hear about the flare up. I have not reached my goals for July and will probably take a different approach. Using up foils have been more challenging than I had thought. 

Re: Foil Challenge

@itsfi  I think you still did great! You had to take care of your skin and make sure the flare up doesn’t last longer! That’s awesome you found a new serum that you love! Do you think you love it more than your current serum? That mask sounds amazing. I’m glad you enjoyed it! 

I think 10 is perfect for next month! It’s definitely easier to use foils when you travel! You will do great!!
