Nowadays I'm trying to maintain a much more minimal lifestyle and now I'm getting older I'm realising the importance of making the most out of what I have and putting a stop to any un necessary spending. As much as I love beauty, trying out new products and buying a new blusher makes my heart flutter I have to put what I need above what I want.
Upon having a good old clear out of my beauty stocks I chucked quite a lot of things away. I'm a complete hoarder of sentimental items, even if I've not worn it in years I will still find a reason in my head to cling onto it. Now I've got my collection into a much more reasonable (yeah right) size I'm going to start a strict one in one out policy. Unless I really need to buy something I'm on a beauty product buying ban for the foreseeable future.
Here are the things that I'm allowing myself to buy if I run out of them:
- Effaclar Duo
- Toner - hydrating & exfoliating.
- Nail polish remover
- Micellar water
And here are the things that I'm not allowed to buy:
- Lip balm
- Hand cream
- Moisturiser - body & face
- Shampoo & Conditioner
- Styling products
- Shower gel
- Face masks
- Nail polish
I want to stick to this as much as I can. So many amazing products are just sitting unloved in my draws and they all need a lot more love than I give them and finishing products is so satisfying isn't it?
