* #NoBuyJanuary = Refrain from buying any new beauty related item for the month of January (this includes skincare and makeup).
This is the first "tag" I've been a part of since starting OurWonderLust and at the risk of sounding like a total nerd...I am super excited. The world of blogging can be a lonely place, especially for someone just starting out. Participating in a tag connects me to larger community and a meaningful movement...plus, it makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside.
Now, could I also benefit from not buying another face oil this month...sure, am I up to my knees in cream blushes...maybe, do I have enough serums that promise brightening and tightening that I should look like an infant by now...most definitely. Let's just say January will be a nice break for me and my skin.
As a matter of fact, I just signed up for a 15 day Winter Detox program with The Nourishing Seed. They follow an elimination diet plan which slowly weeds out and reintroduces foods so you can see how your body reacts to each ingredient you ingest. This got me thinking. #NoBuyJanuary would be the perfect time for me to do a mini 'skincare elimination diet'- slowly weeding out and reintroducing products into my routine and seeing which ones actually work with my skin. We all use so many products at the same time that it's hard to tell what your skin is loving or hating (which is not great, even if all of your products are clean).
AND...just because I'm addicted and can't help myself, here's a list of Green Beauty products that I've been lusting for (BUT, won't buy this month... promise). Most of these products are from Eco Diva...I should probably block their site this month!
