Beauty Products Declutter

make up brushes

I actually chucked away most of my toiletries 6 weeks ago when I went cold-turkey-chemical-free, but there were still lots of little bottles and pots lurking in cupboards that needed to go, plus I wanted an inventory of everything that was left.

I am still pretty amazed at exactly how much “self-care” stuff I have. As much as I’ve tried to simplify here I really do use all of the things I have kept. I am wondering if I need to streamline my routine a bit more. Something to think about.

In the meantime, OUT today went:

  • 1 face cleanser
  • 1 pot body butter
  • 1 shampoo
  • 1 conditioner
  • 1 styling spray
  • 1 face moisturizer
  • 1 face exfoliator cream
  • 1 body moisturizer spray
  • 1 pot cotton buds (almost empty)
  • 1 pot eye make up remover
  • 3 lipsticks
  • 1 pot hair serum
  • 1 dentist mirror
  • 1 eyeshadow
  • 3 make-up brushes

I’m really pleased to have finally done this, as the transition over the last 6 weeks has been a bit of  a source of annoyance with pots and ingredients everywhere and the whole trail period of using everything for the first time.

Now I’ve got the basics sorted, it should be much easier to manage and experiment.
