For a long time I have been trying to limit used cosmetics. There were times when my cabinets were bursting at the seams with the products I tested. However, I have learned to give away things that do not serve me or impress me. Those that were useless - end up in the trash.
While I have never complained about the excess of color, because I have always tried to buy only the products I need (matching the canons of my cosmetic taste), I sometimes exaggerated with care. I don't buy three shower gels, but I do buy something in store. I like to have in store products that I like and I know I will buy again.
When it comes to lip cosmetics, I only have 2 lip glosses, 2 lipsticks and one moisturizing lipstick + Tisane, which I only use at night.
I have my favorites in makeup, which I use all the time: Dr G BB cream, Max Factor False Lash mascara, Eveline mascara base and Inglot eye shadows. Mac well dressed roses joined this group.
I do not buy cosmetics addictively and I am struggling in drugstores with a desire to try something new. I always take with the list of products that I have to buy. Thanks to this, I avoid putting what I get into the basket.
I usually have one spare pack of Garnier avocado hair conditioner, shower gel and Facelle at home. These are three products without which I could not cope in case they would end.
What I don't have to buy in store is a hair shampoo. Since I use Hipp shampoo, I don't have to worry about running out of shampoo. The shampoo is extremely effective. When I notice that the bottle is getting lighter, I buy another.
I don't experiment with cosmetics the way it used to be. I have a database of products that I like very much and when I run out of packaging, I run for more.
These include Hipp shampoo, Garnier avocado conditioner, Facelle green and cotton pads.
Every now and then I do a little insight in the cabinets, and I throw away the things I don't use, or give them away (if they fit). Thanks to this, I save a lot of space in cabinets.
And how are you? Are you cosmetic minimalists or do you have a problem with cabinets cracking from cosmetics?
