One of my unofficial resolutions for 2015 is to buy less beauty and appreciate what I already have. Of course, I say unofficial because things sometimes change! But in an effort to hold myself accountable for what I buy, I thought it might be good to start showing you my monthly purchases along with tallies for each category - kind of like a reverse Empties post!!

Phyto Phytojoba Intense Hydrating Brilliance Mask - Ran out of my last hair mask and though I really liked it, I wanted to try something different. Buuuuut I think I've actually tried this already (HERE). The last Phyto mask I tried was just called Phytojoba Intense Hydrating Mask, so I'm not completely sure if it's the same thing with a longer name or if they reformulated it and added the 'Brilliance' part? Or is it a different mask?? Anyway...I've used it once and it seems the same?? We'll see with continued use ha ha!!
Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Water - Replenishment item.
Glycolix Elite Fortified Fortified Cream - Review HERE. Still loving this, but I seem to go through it quickly so I bought 2 so I could have an extra on backup.
NUDE Skincare Brightening Fizzy Powder Wash - New product! I think I saw this on a blog somewhere...can't remember?? But as soon as I saw it I became slightly obsessed. And I'm nearing the end of my Skincare Clean Out cleanser stash, so what better excuse to try a new cleanser?!! Only, whoops...I guess I didn't read the description that well because supposedly this is only meant to be used 3x/week. Ok, so I guess the let's-try-a-new-cleanser hunt is still on!! But I was in need of a physical exfoliator as I don't have one on hand at the moment...so while it's a new product I'm going to call it a replacement item.
Omorovicza Mineral UV Shield SPF 30 - Mentioned HERE as a wish list item! I'm running dangerously low on my current SPF and thought I'd try this one out since I needed one anyway. Wish it was SPF 50, so we'll see how well it protects!
Burberry Eye Colour Wet & Dry Silk Shadow in Pale Barley - Plain, flat out curiosity!!! I posted THIS picture on Instagram...you can see off the bat that the colors are a little different. But the reviews I've read/watched so far say the new formula is just as good. Hope so!!
New In totals
Replenishment (replenishing same product): 4
New replenishment (replenishing with new product): 2
So...I don't think that's too bad for 2 whole months?!!! We'll see how March goes though...it's birthday month and that's always a slippery slope LOL :-P
