Beauty Spend Report | January 2022

I’m pretty happy with myself this month as I’ve managed my low buy - hopefully that continues into tomorrow and I haven’t hit publish too prematurely! You can find last year’s posts here but let’s get into it!


beauty spend report january 2022

First up, I subscribed to the Liberty Beauty Drop last month so my subscription of £20 came out again and the first box (out of four per year) arrived. In it we have full sizes of the Frank Body In Your Dreams Sleep Scrub and Soak and MZ Skin Anti-Pollution Hydrating face mask, and minis of the Dr. Barbara Sturm Anti-Aging body cream, 111Skin Vitamin C Brightening Cleanser, Sarah Chapman Skinesis, Malin + Goetz Bergaot Deodorant and samples of the OUAI Detox Shampoo, Susanne Kaufmann Anti-Aging Regeneration Cream and Sisley Anti-Age Eye and Lip Contour Cream.

The £20 is redeemable on the Liberty Beauty website, you get free delivery and you can opt out after 3 months. This was a pretty impulse purchase from me last month and I have never shopped from Liberty before. I think I will most likely cancel my subscription in March as their beauty offering is quite limited and there are a lot of (overpriced) brands I’m not interested in on there! I will keep an eye on the new in section though and I’m sure I will find something to treat myself to! Overall, I am happy with the contents of the box and everything but the deodorant will get used up by me! And side note, the floral design on the box is beautiful but it would have been nice to get a bag like the first Beauty Drop customers last year but I can understand why they wouldn’t do that every drop!

Also this month, I picked up some of the Home Bargain Inkey List hair products! I’m sure you saw this all over Instagram if you are in the UK and I couldn’t resist the £1.49 price tag! I couldn’t find any in my local Home Bargains so I sent my mum with a list when she went shopping in another town and she came back with the goods! If you read my Best Beauty Discoveries post last month you will already know how much I love the The Inkey List Caffeine Stimulating Scalp Treatment so I picked up four bottles on offer. Note, it is the old, smaller, awkward packaging so I plan to refill my newer bottle with the contents of these! I have noticed much less hair coming out when I wash since I began using this late last year and I can’t recommend it enough, even full price it’s not that expensive at £14.99!

I also got a bottle of the PCA Bond Repair and Peptide Volumising treatments to try as well. So far so good with both of these too, they are lightweight and don’t weigh my hair down but the Caffeine treatment really is the star of the show for me! At £1.49 each these totalled £8.94 altogether.


And that brings me to the end of my report – my total was £28.94! Like I said, it was a good low spend month for me and I want to try and keep it that way this year (well apart from maybe a little splurge at my birthday/Christmas time ;)) Have you bought much beauty this year so far?
