I normally post decluttering blog posts on my second blog Home, Budget, Blog, but since this one is makeup related, I thought it fit better on my beauty blog (but if you like these kinds of posts, definitely go follow my lifestyle blog to see more of them in the future).
Today I’m going to be talking about makeup products that I’m getting rid of. I love minimizing and decluttering, and my makeup and toiletry collections are the easiest areas to declutter. I’m going to show you pictures of some of the items that I have set aside to pass on to someone else or items that I’ve thrown away because they’re old or expired. Let’s get into the decluttering!
Fabuloso Toning Conditioner and Beauty Protector Toning Shampoo
If you saw my Why I Cancelled Birchbox or my September Birchbox Unboxing, you’ll know that I was super annoyed when I got these products. I don’t color my hair anymore, and I haven’t ever colored it blonde, so a purple shampoo and conditioner is poinless for me. (Also the shampoo exploded in my box, so Birchbox sent me a replacement box which is why I have one shampoo and two conditioners).
Always Made With Love Hand Cream and Body Butter
I got these in a White Elephant gift exchange around the holidays, but if you’ve seen my second blog you’ll know that I’m trying to transition to more natural products with less harsh chemicals. Since these are kind of a generic gift set (and kind of a cheap brand) not only is the quality not so great, but they’re loaded with harsh (and cheap) chemicals, so I’m going to get rid of them. I have plenty of lotion anyway.
Temptu Liquid Bronzer
Candy Cane Chapstick
This used to be my all time favorite lip balm, and since they only make it around the holidays, I bought 6 of them last year and have only used two of them all year so I’m going to go ahead and pass these two on before they expire so someone else can get some use out of them.
R+Co Dry Shampoo Paste
Starlooks Liquid Lipstick
OFRA Metallic Liquid Lipstick
Hikari Eyeliner Pencil
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil “Milk”
IBY Beauty Trio
Lip Product Samples (Trestique, Pixi, Tarte)
Becca Ombre Nudes Palette
I got quite a bit of use out of this palette but I really don’t feel like I need it anymore. I have these colors in all of my other palettes, so I’m going to pass this one on (or toss it since it’s pretty well used, I haven’t decided yet).
Misc. Nail Polish (Joshik “Luxe” and Formula X “Huntress”)
Previse Hydromilk Moisturizer
I got this moisturizer in a subscription box over a year ago. I’ve been trying to force myself to use it up but I really don’t like it. It expires in February 2017 so I’m finally letting myself just toss it. There’s still a lot left, but this doesn’t leave my skin feeling moisturized, it doesn’t smell good at all, and I don’t want to use it.
Senstetive Skin BB Cream
I hope you enjoyed seeing some items that I’ve decluttered from my collection and I’ll be passing on to friends and family members! I actually have a part two in the works RIGHT NOW (crazy how much makeup I have to get rid of, right?! I don’t know how it accumulates so quickly!), so definitely follow my blog so that you’ll see it when it comes out! Thank you all so so much for sticking with me through this crazy long post, and I’ll see you all next time!
