Hey loves! How are we all doing?
Ever looked at your skin-care stash and thought 'Woah when did I accumulate this amount of products?' Well I have and I have decided to do something about it. I stumbled upon some barely used face and general skin care items in my bathroom cupboard. I've come up with an idea of challenging myself to use these products until I have used them up. I'll be using these products as often as needed, ie, cleanser (everyday twice a day), face masks, exfoliators (once or twice a week).
I have a simple skin-care routine that consists of cleanser, toner (when I can be bothered) and moisturiser. I need to focus on the other products as well such as the mask, exfoliator, eye cream etc. The goal of this challenge is to use what I have and establish a proper skin care routine.
|My skin-care items, some I use and some are barely used.|
Let's get cracking, below are the skin-care products that I use and need to use daily:
|1.Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser, 2. Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic, 3. MAC Oil Control Lotion|
4. Biotherm Aquasource Gel, 5. Benefit It's Potent Eye Cream, 6. Carmex Cherry Moisturising Lip Balm
I start my routine with washing my face with the Clarins gentle foaming cleanser for oily/combination skin. After patting my face with a face towel I would apply a bit of Liz Earle's Instant Boost Skin Tonic on a cotton ball and pat it on my skin. I wait for it to dry and then apply my Biotherm Aquasource Moisturiser followed by Benefit's It's Potent Eye cream under the eyes only. I also moisturise my lips using Carmex Cherry Lip Balm. If I'll be wearing make up then I will apply the MAC Oil Control Lotion onto my skin at this point.
|7. Soap & Glory The Fab Pore Hot Cloth Cleanser , 8 Clarisonic Mia.|
I haven't tried the Soap &Glory Fab Pore Hot Cloth Cleanser yet, so I plan on using it in the evenings along with the Clarisonic mia.
Onto, the once or twice a week products:
|9. Soap & Glory Scrub Your Nose In It, 10. MAC Volcanic Ash Exfoliator, 11. Soap & Glory The Fab Pore Facial Peel|
12. LUSH Bubblegum Lip Scrub, 13. Clarins Pure and Radiant Mask, 14. Clarins Gentle Refiner Exfoliating Cream
There are 5 exfoliators/scrubs in my skin-care stash that need to use up. I forgot to include the Liz Earle Gentle Face Exfoliator in the above pictures. I'm alternating between these fasical scrubs everytime I use a scrub so that I end up using them all. Once a week I'm using the Clarins Pure and Radiant Mask. I'm going to be scrubbing my lips using LUSH's Bubblegum lip scrub once or twice a week.
I'm hoping that I'll stick to this challenge and use up some of these products.
What do you think of this challenge? Do you have a ton of skin-care products that you're not using?
Until next time,
