With the weather kind of crappy outside coupled with my intense desire to stay in my jammies all day, I decided to make myself be productive and tackle the bathroom products I’ve been hoarding. After purging my storage I ran across the bathroom box I had packed away with the full intent of seeing it all again after only 4 months. 16 months longer than expected and here we are today. The bathroom cabinets were a disaster but really only needed a little organization to bring them back to a functional state. Between the storage unit and the cabinets, I had way too much stuff. It didn’t help that a year subscription of Birchbox added to the collection of this and that. So I dumped it all out on the bed and started to sort by use.
Make up, sunscreens, hair products, body lotions, face products and more.
For someone who never wears makeup, I have a ton of it. The worst part? I don’t even like most of it. So I separated by use, tried stuff on, and only key what I love.
Oh look! BeautiControl makeup circa 1998! The funniest part is that last year I bought the exact same stuff because my obviously super old stuff was in storage and probably needed to go for sanitary reasons if nothing else.
I even found a couple more packs of my beloved Prada lip tint that Angelina got me hooked on over a decade ago.
After sorting through eye pencils that I would never wear and lipstick shades from the 90’s, I decided to keep this little bundle of treasure.
After playing with makeup for a good hour, I carefully went through the other products, trying a few but throwing away just about all of it except some lotions and hair products I still need to try.
It’s amazing what products we are willing to hold onto even when we don’t like them. Here is my successful purge of products and I honestly don’t have any regrets in getting rid of it all.
What kinds of products have you been hoarding but don’t actually use or like?
