Low Buy 2021-February Update

For my low buy here’s the rules:

1- In a bid to buy less, I have to accumulate money to spend on new products.

To do that, I finish products up and get half of the cost of that item towards new goodies. So finishing a £10 shampoo for example adds £5 to my new budget.

2- Not every item is included. So makeup, skincare, bodycare (and shower gels & shampoos/conditioners over £5) count towards my budget. If I finish them I get money towards my new budget and if I buy any fancy shower gels, etc, it comes out of my budget.

Of course, if I buy my usual affordable shampoo/conditioner/shower gel it doesn’t get mentioned. I need basic hygiene products after all!

3- I’m not including bath products such as bath bombs, bubble bath etc. I could, but just decided not to.

And let’s get into it!

-Urban Decay Perversion Mascara £21 (Adds £10.50 to new budget)
