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 –


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 –


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 –


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) –


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.

Project Update: Month 3

3 Sep

Hello everyone! So another project update and it’s month #3! With the postings of my makeup stash I have been smartening up with what I purchased. But with back-to-school shopping and stuff like that I picked up some items. I mean who can’t resist new makeup?


So these are the items that I picked up this month… it ended up being 6 products. But from yesterdays post you know that I finished a bunch of lipglosses so I thought it was okay to buy some more… though thinking back to the stash post on the lipglosses I don’t really need anymore lipglosses. Anyways, the items are:

– Sephora x Disney Ariel Palette (the most coverted item)

– Covergirl Whipped Foundation

– Maybelline Stick Foundation

– Rimmel Apocalips (that is what they are called in Canada) in Celestial

– Almay Liquid Lip balm in Lilac Love

– Maybelline Electro Baby Lips in Berry Bomb

Just getting new makeup for the back-to-school season feels really great so I don’t really regret purchasing these as I will use them and review them for you guys soon (by soon I mean most likely 3 months down the line because it’s me the really bad procrastinator).

Once again this month I didn’t do anything to my stash of facial masks that I have to use… oops. I will hopefully do better since colder weather is coming soon.

I will be completing the Beauty Stash section of my blog soon and that makes me a little sad but it has opened my eyes to how many products that I actually have to use. Sadly, it won’t stop me from purchasing new makeup but at least it was an interesting experience while working on the stash posts.
