This insane changeable summer weather of late -no honestly, right now it is pouring with rain and grey, yet two days ago I was wandering around in a dress enjoying the sunshine -has been irritating, but those dreary Sundays are perfect for cleaning and organising. Inspired by Stashy from Stash Matters, I decided it was time to get rid of some stuff I simply don’t use and older products that have passed their use by date (in some cases, I am a little ashamed to admit, by quite some margin). Let’s have a look at what is going into the trash.
It turns out, I have a tendency to hoard older lip products. Some of these are nearly finished, while others are barely used because I disliked the color. Most lipsticks and glosses have a limited shelf life and you can imagine they are an easy hotbed for bacteria, so these are all going in the trash. You can tell I loved those long lasting lip stains in all different shades and I will definitely be on the lookout to replace some of those. Tips are welcome!
The Nivea body cream and Dr. Organic Moroccan Argan Oiil are going in the trash because they are far past their best and I just haven’t been able to finish them (mostly I was distracted by testing newer and more exciting products for the blog). The make-up products, on the other hand, were just let downs. The eye shadows lack colour pay-off, the BB cream just wasn’t my thing, and do not get me started in the scented mascara. Yup, you read that right: it has a cloying vanilla scent. No, I don’t understand it either,
I have to say it feels nice to get rid of products that really need to go and create some more space for the stuff I do love I also discovered loads of stuff I had sort of forgotten about while going through everything, so it was definitely worth it. I might have to plan these on regular basis, maybe once every six months.
