#NoBuyJanuary Week 3 What I've been using (up) this week

Only a few things this week but I feel like next week might be a big post as I am so close to the end of a few full sized products.

Madara Time Miracle Day sample- After a successful run with the night cream, the day cream was really underwhelming. I got about 3 days use of it and by midday my skin was super oily. It just wasn't suitable for my skin type.

Neals Yard Remedies Remedies to Roll Night Time full size- I bloody love the remedies to roll and the night time is my favourite. I use it on my wrists and behind my ears just before climbing into bed for the night. The blend of essential oils include lavender, neroli, chamomile and rose. 

Caudalie Vinexpert Night Infusion Cream sample- I felt this was quite a thick cream and I might usually be weary of it it being too heavy on my skin. However I used this after a serum which made the product really easy to apply to the skin.

The Organic Pharmacy Double Rose Rejuvenating Cream sample - A good sized sample, I got about a weeks worth out of it. I go through phases with rose scented products and unfortunately this one just didn't smell nice to me. The cream was light on my skin but as with the Madara, it didn't combat my oily skin.

Update on my spending ban - not bought anything this week. I'm finding that using up my stash really rewarding, I don't feel like I am missing out on anything and while I have added things to my wishlist I haven't been tempted to just buy what I want. It has also meant that I have has more money to spend on other things such as updating my wardrobe and going out for meals.


  1. I totally agree with you about using up the stash being rewarding I am so happy with my pile of empties this month and I am loving some of the products that I have dug out to use :) Xx

  2. Well done Jen and I agree with you too. I really did feel quite proud to see how much my stash has diminished, I think we all deserve a pat on the back! x

  3. What a shame about the Madara. Better to find it's not right in a sample than forking out for the full size. I really must get around to trying the Remedies to Roll too x

  4. You've done really well! I'm enjoying using my stash too although you seem to get way more uses out of samples than me! x
