The 100 Day Challenge - Update # 8

3 Aug 2012

I have now completed my 9th week of the 100 Day Challenge, with just over a month to go, I have now done 63/100 days of this very, very long challenge! First things first, this week's wish list! There's not much on there this week! 

The Body Shop Spa Fit Smoothing & Refining Scrub / Macadamia 

Origins Clear Improvement / The Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Body Butter

So there we have it, just four items on this weeks challenge wish list! The first is a range I didn't even know The Body Shop did until I saw a lovely review from Thom who runs Manface, a lovely male grooming blog (I don't care if I don't have boy bits, his blog is definitely worth following, so check it out!) The way he described the ingredients and scent had my mouth watering and I have been lusting after this all week! Next up, Macadamia. I can't deny it any longer. I really want to try this brand. But they may probably end up staying on the wish list, as I'm not sure I could ever actually afford them! The Origins Clear Improvement mask is much talked about in the blogosphere at the minute and I particularly love reviews from Sophie who runs Candy Cane Heart and Laura who runs Lauzrah who have both reviewed this product and made me lust after it! And finally on this weeks wishlist, the Pink Grapefruit body butter from The Body Shop. I adore pink grapefruit, to eat and as a scent, and I sniff this every time I am in store! I want it!!

So wishlist aside, how have I done this week? 

OK, well, I have a confession to make. On Monday when in town with friends for lunch, I did go into the Poundland shop in town and buy two things for myself. A Stila tinted moisturiser and a Sally Hansen nail polish pen. These both (as you can guess from the shop) cost £1 each. But I didn't beat myself up over it - £2 in 9 weeks is not bad (I have obviously spent more than £2 in 9 weeks but there are certain things I can spend on which you can read in my original challenge post) 

If you are doing the challenge please do let me know how you are getting on! I would love to know :) Is anything on my wish list something you're lusting after? Do you own any of these? Let me know!

  1. The Body Shop scrub looks amazing! All of their products smell incredible in my opinion! x

  2. £2 is incredible in 9 weeks!! I lost that this morning down a drain on the walk to work (sad face!)...

    I really want to buy the origins products too - everyone is raving about them so much!

  3. You are doing so great!! I want that Macadamia Oil so bad, I just can't justify the money for it right now. One of my subscriptions sent me the Healing Oil Treatment and I love it!!

  4. We'll forgive you for that £2 transgression ;) You've lasted much longer than I ever would, that's for sure!

  5. I'm really tempted to get some full sizes of Macadamia's Hair Mask and their oil. Have used up my samples and miss them! x

  6. @Amy I'm really interested by it, I'm going to check it out in store! xo

  7. @helen Oh gosh, really? I'd be devastated if I did that haha! Definitely, everyone seems to be in love with Origins xo

  8. @xo, Jersey Girl Thank you :) I need to try it but it is so, so pricey! xo

  9. @E V E L Y N I would love to try their hair mask, I think if I do try anything from them, that'll be the first xo

  10. The macadamia is amazing. The oil is brilliant I got it for 17 on eBay and lasted me at least 5 months and the mask does wonders! You can get it in the Smokey size to try again from eBay for £3 I think xxx I think I need a 100 day challenge as does L!!

  11. @C.S.I Beauty Blog I will have a look after my challenge, thank you! xo
