Skincare no buy 2019: three month update


Hello and welcome to my three-month update for my skincare no buy 2019!

It's been a pretty easy no buy this year and I haven't thought too much about the fact that I can't buy anything, although note that my skincare stores are dwindling quite a bit so it's not surprising that I had to make my first essential purchase this month.

Indeed, I made that purchase about ten minutes ago on my way home from the city, because I realised that I've panned three exfoliants in the last month and needed a replacement.

Here's what I bought:

It's the Andalou Naturals Clear Skin Lemon Sugar Facial Scrub. Now I've had my eye on this for a long time, but every time Andalou has been on sale, this product has vanished immediately from my local store and also from online.

So when I had to stop by the chemist today for nappies and saw it there, I decided to go ahead and buy it: I mean, it retails for $22.99 AUD at full-price so it's not that expensive in the scheme of things and there wasn't any other facial scrub I was interested in.

I'm really glad I bought it and I can't wait to try it, and I'm also glad that I was able to make a little essential purchase this month to replace the three exfoliants I've recently finished: it was nice to spend some time browsing the skincare aisle, which I haven't done for months because I haven't wanted to tempt myself.

Do note that my skincare and makeup no buys are still going, and the same rules apply as always: I can only replace essentials when I've completely run out of something and don't have anything in back-up, as was the case here.

Also note that I expect to start running out of more skincare in the next month or two, because my back-up cupboard is looking pretty sad these days and I don't have a hell of a lot left.

That's all from me. Hope all's well with you, and speak soon x
