No spend. For real.

I’ve tried so many times to go on a no spend, I’ve even tried a low spend, but I can’t keep away from new makeup.

Starting August I’m going to try something new. I’m going to stick to the subscription boxes only.

I currently receive Boxycharm, I get Boxylux every three months, and I just received my first month of Ipsy Glam.

I’m going these will hold me over for the month so I still get new makeup, without buying new makeup.

I think the only exception will be extraordinary TJ Maxx or Marshall’s finds.

Here is what I received in the July Ipsy Glam box

I’m excited to try the Huda Beauty palette and the Thrive cosmetics mascara.

My sister gifted me the pixi spray already and I’m still feeling it out so this second one might go to a friend.

Overall I’m exiting to try everything in the box and I think it’s a great value.

Double masking?

I rarely set aside enough time for a nighttime skin care routine so I’m trying to make more of an effort in this area.

Tonight I did some light exercise at home (something else I’m working on getting better at and decided to start on my routine.

First I used Clinique Take the Day off Balm for my eyes. I find this is the best at removing eyeshadow and mascara

Then I used Tatcha Camilla Cleansing Oil for all over. I love how clean and soft this my skin feeling

Then I followed up with the Tatcha Violet-C Radiance Mask and to finish it off a Pomegranate sheet mask from Etude House

I’ve never done a wash off mask followed by a sheet mask and it will be interesting to see if there are noticeable results.

To finish off my routine I’ll use a vitamin C serum followed by a night cream
