Spending Ban Haul (?) / Update


Hi everyone. It might sound silly, but I have a Spending Ban Haul post for you today :)
I thought that it will be a good idea to get everything I bought during the ban together and add it all up to see how much I actually spent. There is exactly 3 weeks left till the end of the ban and I am not planning to buy anything at all. I am too busy with packing everything and moving house, so I am not even thinking about spending money. So what did I buy during the ban? 

Well... the biggest order I placed was with Fragrance Direct where I bought Dainty Doll products. I just couldn't miss out on this offer. Everything was reduced to £1.99!!! I got 6 blushers, 2 concealers, a lipstick and a mascara/eyeliner. (total: £22.00) I didn't need any of that, but I am really sad and I just bought loads of stuff for no reason! :)

I also bought 3 Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquers a couple of weeks ago. They were on offer and I paid £12.00 for three of them. I really wanted to try them and I am really glad that I did :)
I bought 2 Lush bath bombs (£5), a Korean BB Cream (£5) and a Lioele lipstick (£5).
That's it from actual ban breakers.

What I had to buy without breaking the ban ( what I actually needed) was the Origins Super Spot Remover (£13), an acetone free nail polish remover by Nubar (£7.25) and a cuticle oil (£6.75).  I also got 3 Barry M nail polishes with my Boots points, but it doesn't count :)

Oh, another thing! I ordered 2 Etude House nail polishes on ebay over a month ago, but they haven;t arrived so the seller refunded my money. I will buy them after the ban, because they are really cute- shaped like ice cream cones!

Total for ban breakers: £49.00
Total with other purchases: £76.00

I am quite impressed to be honest. I spent under £50 on beauty products since January and before the ban, I used to spend more than that weekly. 

Are you taking part in the 100 day spending ban? Let me know if you are finding it easy or hard?
