It definitely contolled my spending (ignoring the afore mentioned 'hiccup'), and I'm still trying to decide if I should carry it on for this month.
Although I've already bought things this month, I may put myself on a ban for the rest of it.
After just a month I've managed to use up more than I thought I would, and here are my empties at the end of it all:
Dior 5 Coleurs (pink Idol): I LOVE this palette. It's hard to tell in the photo, but I have hit pan on the bottom 2 colours. I'll be very sad once this palette is gone as it's my baby.
Treseme 24 Hour Body Shampoo & Conditioner: You may have seen these in a previous post, and I do really like them. They work well for me, though they are no miracle product. My hair wasn't any bigger after using them, but I really like the scent of them both.
Repurchase: I would consider buying these again, though for now I am using something else (you should alternate shampoo & conditioners to prevent product build-up)
Clarins Cleansing Milk: A holy grail of mine, I absolutely love this cleanser. It works perfectly on my sensitive/combination skin, and never lets me down.
W7 Honolulu Bronzer: I really like this bronzer, again it's one of my holy grails. It just gives a nice bronzed look without being too orange or too dark.
Repurchase: As soon as I can find it again (I can no longer find it in my local Savers) I will be buying this for sure.
George Ultra Matte Pressed Powder: This always gives me a nice matte finish to my make up, and doesn't come out blotchy or orange. The colour is a really good match to my own, and it is an amazing bargain.
