Today I make a pledge: finish all my beauty products before purchasing any new ones. (⊙.⊙(☉_☉)⊙.⊙)

Yesterday I was going through my emails and there it was, yet another Sephora promotion of a new Shiseido cream. It looked so pretty, and Shiseido creams always smell so good… I immediately searched online for cheaper prices, even though I knew I wouldn’t be able to buy it (this is also an extremely expensive brand).

While I was browsing, I looked around my bedroom and it hit me. I may have a problem. It’s not that serious lol so let’s chillax a bit. But I do have lots and lots of – most of them used once or twice – beauty products! Most of them are Oriflame and the rest are just products that I bought over the past 10 years (!!)

So, I made up my mind and that’s why I’m writing this.

I won’t buy anything else if I have at home. I need to use all the products (yes, I checked the expiration dates and the ones I’m going to show you are fine to use) before I buy anything else. I’ll shop my stash. And I’ll put them all together in a basket where I can see them and remind me on daily basis of this pledge.

The photos below are only of the products that I don’t use often. The basket has none of my daily use products – face creams, makeup wipes, shampoos, hair masks, face exfoliant and face wash – and I really don’t understand how it came to this point.

So, here’s the basket:


And here are some close ups of the products, divided by “categories”.

Body creams – 19
Body exfoliants – 5
Feet and heel products – 5
Toners (!) – 3
Face products – 8

Misc – 3


I seriously don’t know how it got to this, but I’m sure I’ll make it. I will use this babies to the last drop!

Or my name isn’t Sofia.

From time to time I’ll update you on the empties from this basket.


Hope you’re having a great Friday! See you tomorrow!
