Getting back to the subject, I want to brag about how I've managed to empty out some bottles in the past few months and I'm very proud of myself!
You see, when you're a beauty enthusiast like I am, you can't help being intrigued by new products in the market, which usually results in a purchase because that cleanser looked "interesting" or that scrub is "popular".
The Reality: Your bathroom counter holds so much shampoo that you're starting to use it to wash your toilet (I've used a facial cleanser to wash underwear before which is just as bad) and you have enough facial cream/lotion to moisturize a whale.
Not only are we letting products go to waste simply because we've gotten bored of them, we are spending unnecessarily on products that we truly don't need. Yes, I get that I don't need another blusher or eyeshadow... Can't you just let me have my moment? At least I'm making progress...
Which Product Have You Most Recently Emptied?
List of products I've surprisingly emptied after the jump!
Hada Labo AHA+BHA Cleanser
I use this every single day and am now on my 2nd tube. Since using this cleanser, I haven't been too tempted to try any other cleansers.
Cellnique Body Plush Emulsion Wash
Although it wasn't fantastic but I was determined to use this up before I could even think of buying any new body wash. Goodness knows I have loads of body wash simply from gifts. So now I'm attempting to use them all up whether or not they're expensive (couldn't bring myself to use L'Occitane daily!) or I don't fancy the scent.
Ettusais AC-Skincare Skin Version Up Extra
I use this every morning so it's not at all difficult to finish this up in less than a year. A refill bottle is available, which I've bought but I'm still scraping the bottom of the bottle.
C. Michael Tricologica Hairomatherapy Scalp Improvement Shampoo
This shampoo is wonderful especially when my scalp's flaky and I've just run out of it. Although I'm very keen on replenishing, I'm trying to use up the rest of the shampoos that I still have.
Maybelline Pulse Perfection Vibrating Mascara
Using up a mascara isn't easy because they dry out before you can achieve that. This one hasn't dried out completely yet but I've used it so much that the battery has run out! AND I haven't bought a new mascara since... a pretty long time!
Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Lotion
This one ran out quite a long time ago but though I loved it, I was too annoyed by the patting so I'm using a different brand now. Oh, I've recycled the bottle :) *pats self*
Madara Deep Comfort Toner
I love love love this toner and I'm trying to not let it run out! I still have 2 bottles of toner to go through before I'd allow myself to buy a new one and I can't bear to live without the Madara DCT so I'm using this very sparingly. Mostly when my skin's feeling very sensitive.
Now to do the same when it comes my makeup... Mission impossible!
