5 Reasons To Keep Your Beauty Products Clean & Organized:
- You might just discover a "long-lost-item" or fav. product that you didn't realize you even had! ;) I frequently do this and often have fun 'rediscovering' eye shadows, liners, and lip shades!
- Make some cash! Yup....that's right...you can actually snag some extra dough by just going through your unwanted brand new and gently used cosmetics & skincare items! There are programs & services out there that offer up money, gift cards, & exchanges for other great beauty items for simply cleaning out your beauty bag = win ;) My fav's: glambot.com & Muabs.com
- Ditch expired items that can harbor bacteria and lose their effectiveness as their expired formulas break down. Not only can these products cause adverse reactions, but they can also effect things like how it works, consistency, & smell :0
- Rejuvenate your collection and gear up for the new season by going through your items on a quarterly/seasonal basis. I find that by doing this at around every change of the season, I can keep up with current trends & rid my collection of products that take unnecessary room or space.
- Make sense of your products through organization! This allows for quick & easy access of items like your makeup tools & seasonal shades. Try placing brushes in a cup, plastic storage container, or box for example and make your brush collection accessible in a flash!
