I can;t smell eucalyptus in theEve Lom but the ingredients list it, so  thanks for the heads up!  I used the Drunk Elephant Slaai one tonight, so far so good.

I di bring my usual Clinique one with me but my workmate forgot her cleanser so i'm sharing, and just not sure it'll make it through, so figured a 'way past' Mecaa pop-in was appropriate.

I can't use the Eve Lol cleanser as it has the dreaded eucalyptus oil in it. It also smells like tequila to me lol. 

Apparently La Mer cream has pretty much the same ingredients as Nivea Soft. Since hearing that, I think it even smells like Nivea too.

Oh I've purposely not used my La Mer moisturiser sample because I'm worried I'll love it too much!  I love Drunk Elephant and have purchased after trying some samples  :)   Others though, the price point is too high to justify it.... Always look forward to my mecca samples and loop box samples  :)

Yep. The La Mer moisturiser. The $780 one. It  might be made of leprechaun dreams and unicorn farts, it certainly feels like it. This is a habit I really can't afford!!! Waaaah!!!

I was finally able to go to Mecca in Christchurch!! I bought new brushes and the Smashbox palette set which was on sale! I'm so excited for my first Smashbox eyeshadows, and they blend like a dream with my new brushes. Happy to say I'm pretty much done now since I'm for a low buy year hopefully until Christmas!! Wish me luck...

Well done, Lisa! I seem to have been decluttering forever! My latest tactic is to not just acquire so much in the first place (especially beauty products!). I did manage to declutter the tea shelf in my pantry (yeap it takes up a whole shelf) but that's as far as I've got!

Another goal of mine was to go through the entire house room by room and declutter, get rid of stuff we don't use. Well the last thing on my list was to go through the pantry and I just finished! Feels so good to get everything done :-)
Two bottles of Garnier cleanser at a local store which was closing down for $3 each. Bargain 
A living nature lipstick and a Clinique mascara. 
I'm yet to try Mecca, are they really any good? 
I'm from the UK originally where we have lots of stinging nettles. One old wives tail which actually worked was to put toothpaste on nettle stings. Apparently the alkaline toothpaste neutralised the acid stings! Really does work.

Don't roll your eyes or they'll roll back in your head and stay there was one I remember.

Eat up your all carrots and you'll be able to see in the dark is another one (Mum's way of trying to get me to eat my vegetables). To this day I still won't eat carrots unless they are raw or in a casserole so I can't taste them lol

Its gorgeous here in Whangarei but oh so hot. I have to wear a long black shirt, black jean's and steel cap boots for work and it is so unbearable at times especially when I'm out on the road.

Great thread! Welcome to the forum, Mimi :) Great pic too.

i think I've stopped believing in most of them by now.. maybe cucumber slices to de puff eyes is the only one I'm clinging to, but kinda replaced that with eye masks now.

will have a think, keen to read others!

On the odd occasion I can go one day without washing my hair but generally it is every day. I have started using a conditioner most days now and once a week a hair mask, that I absolutely adore. I love it so much I am going to start using a mask twice a week. Such a treat and my hair is so soft

what old wives tale you believe in? Even if you don't, can you name a few?
I believe in having a hair trim before half moon gives your hair growth a boost.
Well I have never noticed any difference but I still try to trim my hair in first 14 lunar days.

Auckland's coming and going, it's low 20's and a little overcast today, so was perfect weather for a decent lunch time walk.  Over the weekend it hit 28 and was v sunny.  Very unpredictable atm, but at least the skies aren't yellow and orange anymore.  That wasn't fun at all .
