Finally after months of storing empty products like a hoarder I had enough products to justify an empties post. It’s been months! In this post you’ll see what products I used up these past three months, mini reviews, and which of those products I would repurchase.
The whole point of sharing the products I finish up is to get rid of my product clutter and help promote others to do the same. Too often I would buy buy buy rather than use what I already had. More details in my Learning to Live Minimally resolution.
Products I completed this past Fall:
Perfectly Posh face mask – Burt’s Bees Facial Cleansing Towelettes – Organix Keratin Conditioner – Pureology Sulfate Free Purifying Shampoo – CVS SPF 50 – COOLA Sunscreen – Macadamia Flawless Cleansing Conditioner x 2 – theBalm en root dry shampoo x 3 – tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes - 3 nail polishes – Neosporin Overnight Renewal* – oli body mist+ – skyn Icelandic eye cream – Philosophy Full of Promise moisturizer+ – mark Matte Chance – Freeze Arctic Lift Firming Neck Cream+ – Venus razor* – Coconut oil

As for my Learning to Live Minimally update, my main goal is to get all of my beauty products and have them fit into my makeup armoire. This includes all hair and skincare products as well. If you missed the video where I go into what I currently have to work through, I re-embedded it below.
I also want to declutter my clothing and sell some of my unused items in garage sales (I’m happy to report my first one is this Saturday!). In regards to my home, I also want to use mostly eco-friendly and cruelty-free brands. It’s important to me that my house isn’t contributing to the earth’s problems.
Are you trying to minimize? What is your strategy?
I’d love to know how other people are working on being more minimal.
