I didn't want to start out too crazy so I've had a think about some little things in my life/house that I need to organise and sort out and I decided that my skin care/make up should be first on my list! I really hate clutter in general but for some reason this doesn't seem to transition into my make up and skin care. Recently I have found myself doing a few clean outs and have really enjoyed the organised feeling afterwards. My downfall, however, is those sample sized/travel sized products that I somehow find myself believing I will use for a weekend away, but never do... A lot of these products came from a beauty box subscription which I cancelled well over 6 months ago, I was just not finding it useful and was constantly having to find new storage for all these products! After a big clean out of things that I don't like/were past their "best before"/didn't suit my skin type, I was a little embarrassed by how much I still had.
So my challenge to myself is a ban on buying any make up/cosmetic/skincare/haircare item, until all of these products are finished...
I estimate that this will maybe take me two months or so, and I feel that I will in no way be depriving myself. In fact, I think it will probably be a nice few months of face masks and regular use of hand cream! I have also included a few products that are almost finished and just seem to be never ending.
A little disclaimer: I am allowing myself a body wash purchase, because I'm almost out, I was also going to include shampoo, conditioner and sunscreen on this list, but I recently stocked up on these products so I don't think I will need to buy those.
I'm pretty excited about getting rid of excess stuff and streamlining my skin care routine to things that I know suit my skin and work for me. Have you set yourself any goals lately? If you have, how are they going? I love reading about other people's plans, it has definitely inspired me to plan my own challenge, I'll keep you all posted with how it goes!
