3 Jan

Made one of my New Years Resolutions to start wearing nail polish again but here are the polishes that I have accumulated over the past 2 years. And once again everything is described from left to right for your viewing pleasure.

Beauty Stash: Bath & Body

18 Sep

Hello everyone! So I actually keep a stash of products in my bathroom to use for obviously bath and body stuff so here is how it is stored and what products that I have in it.

The storage box is actually from IKEA and fits into a tall standing case thing that houses five of these boxes. Mine is obviously the top one (since I’m so tall jk),

IMG_2141 IMG_2142 IMG_2145

And here are the items themselves:

Bath & Body –

IMG_2147

Products: Nivea Free Time Shower Cream with Starfruits, St. Ives Oatmeal Moisturizing Lotion, Bath & Body Works Pink Sugarplum x4, Frosted Snowberryx2, Twisted Peppermint x2, Wild Berry & Tulips, Aveeno Baby Sunscreen x2, Milky Dress Whitening Cream, True Blue Spa Mango Body Butter, Steam Cream (sheep tin), Lush Each Peach Massage Bar, Rocky Mountain Soap Company Cherry Body Butter

Total: 19 products

Can I say wow… I am actually impressed to see that I have deducted my body wash section to just one as a backup but I ought to just use up all the lotions I have before purchasing anymore.

Hair –

IMG_2150

Products: L’Oreal Power Moisturizing Hair Mask, Ojon Rare Blend Oil Treatment, Liese Smoothing Cocktail, Tresemme Heat Protectant (not shown), Fructis Garnier Hold & Flex Non Aerosol Hair Spray( (not shown), Tresemme Volumizing Dry Shampoo (not shown)

Total – 6 products

Not too many hair products I am not too high maintenance when it comes to hair so I only have products that I only use once in a while. I think this is a healthy amount of hair products to have.

Miscellaneous Others –

IMG_2151

Products: Bath & Body Works Linen Hand Sanitizer, Veet Hair Cream Remover, Lady Speedstick Deodorant in Strawberry and Watermelon, Bath & Body Works Fresh Picked Strawberries Cream sample, Vaseline Convenient Size, Dove GO Fresh Deodorant in Plum & Sakura Blossoms, Bath & Body Works Beautiful Day lotion sample, two pack toothbrushes from Colgate

Total – 10 products

Many of these things I take out quite often I need the sample sizes for my work since my hands get so dry and I always stock up on deodorant when it’s on sale (then I don’t have to buy for about 9 months) and of course I always need toothbrushes. My sister likes to take my new toothbrushes because she goes through about one toothbrush a month. I would like to get rid of my hand sanitizer though… perhaps part of a pamper package basket for the Holidays?

Skincare Stash (all of these are new products or partly used in the case of face masks) –

IMG_2156

Yikes that is a lot of skincare that I have stocked up… Let me break it down by product type:

Cleansing: Kao Japan Cleansing Oil Sample, Biore Cleansing Oil, Simple Cleansing Wipes x 2 (4)

Toner: Holika Holika Aqua Fantasy Toner, Naruko Raw Job’s Tears Whitening Toner (2)

Serums: Doctor’s Tretinoin Cream (Vitamin A), Naruko Raw Job’s Tears Whitening Serum, Boscia Tsubaki Beauty Oil (3)

Moisturizer: Cerave samples x3, Naruko Raw Job’s Tear Cream, Naruko Raw Job’s Tears Day Lotion sample, Josie Maran Argan Oil x2, Bare Minerals Moisturizer for Combo-Oily Skin, L’Oreal Ideal Moisture SPF 25, George’s Intesive Cream sample, George’s Cream sample, Neutrogena Sensitive lotion, Holika Holika Aqua Fantasy Emulsion, (13)

Exfoliators: Cure Natural Aqua Gel, St Ives Green Tea Face Scrub (2)

Face Masks: True Blue Spa Green Tea Foaming Face Mask, True Blue Spa Pumpkin Moisturizing Mask, Naruko Tea Tree Pore Clearing Mask, Etude House Moisturizing Overnight Face Mask, Formula 10.0.6 Deep Down Detox, Sephora Intensive Moisture Mix Yourself Mask, Laneige Multiberry Face Mask (7)

Extras: MAC Careblends in Grapefruit+Camomile, Biore Pore strips (14)

Total – 46 products

That is a lot of skincare the sits around because I am actually quite lazy to purchase more when the time comes and I would rather stockpile them. Especially for things like Asian sunscreens usually I would have quite a few but I am on my last one and have ordered a few more. But out of all this I think I would like to decrease the face mask section as well as the moisturizer section. There is quite a bit of products in both but since I don’t use masks everyday those take a lot longer to finish then moisturizers.

Beauty Stash: Eyes – Eyebrows, Mascara and False Eyelashes

6 Sep

Hello everyone! An all together post today to feature what is stated above. TO be honest these are things that I don’t use too much on a daily basis and when I do it’s one at a time… I should really decrease the amount of products that I have for each section.

Mascara: (Please note that all of these are new mascaras so they are still “fresh”, all the shades are in black and I crossed out the ones that I have finished)

IMG_2006

– Benefit They’re real! sample, Maybelline Great Lash Lots of Lashes, Maybelline MegaPlush, Tarte Lights,Camera, Lashes sample, Fairy Drops Las Vegas Edition, Fairy Drops Mascara Base, Maybelline The Falsies Flared, Revlon Lash Potion, Covergirl Lashblast Fusion, Lashblast Covergirl Lashblast Luxe, Maybelline The Rocket

Total: 9 products

False Eyelashes

IMG_1971 IMG_1974

From various shops: Mainly Daiso lashes, All of the Ardell + Cirque du Soleil’s lashes, Paperself Paperlashes 2 pairs, Duo Lash adhesive

Total = … can’t really put a total on the number of lashes that I have.

Eyebrows:

IMG_2016

Integrate Eyebrow Powder and Etude House Drawing Eyebrows Retractable pencil in Grey Brown

Total = 2 products

So I can see where my prorities are when it comes to these products. I don’t use false eyelashes too much because they require more time in the morning than anything so I leave them for special occasions. But I would like to reduce the amount of unopened mascaras that I have right now. 9 products is a lot when I only use one at a time. I wonder if I can actually do a mascara buying ban… but they release newer cooler ones every few months!

Ah well, I do want to decrease my brow products to one because I only need one brow product and I like powder better because it does last longer than pencil. I have to repurchase my pencil every 4 months compared to 9 months for powder brow products. I do want to try a cooler tone eyebrow powder but I will only purchase it when I run out of the brow products.

This is a good way for me to see what I have and what I would like to decrease so in my case reduce mascara and attempt to find a new brow product after completing my current stash.

Beauty Stash: Eyes – Eye Palettes
