I may have a problem...

Hey everyone, sorry for the huge lack of posts! I really don't have an excuse beyond laziness, but I'll try and get back to somewhat regular updates!

Today I restocked my Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser, which has become my go-to for every possible facial cleansing need. Morning, night, pre- and post-makeup, this stuff is all I use. Frankly, it's brilliant, except for super tough gel eyeliner. My skin has calmed down a lot since using it and the Moisturising Lotion together, and I feel like I'm settled in a routine, unlike my old method of using whatever shiny package catches my eye on in bench/shower/cupboard pile. Which brings me to the title of today's post. I emptied out the bathroom cupboard and drawer today and discovered this:

That's right: my bathroom contains fifteen separate cleansers (and scrubs, but only those that I used as daily cleansers). That's not including masks, make-up removers or other specialist products. I have back-ups of three I no longer use. I have a tendency to buy multiples of anything sparkly, vaguely effective, and on super-duper sale. This is a problem. I really should head straight to Hoarders Anonymous. Oops.

 I know I'm not the only one in this situation, so do you have a tendency to hoard a particular product?

P.S. I attended Illamasqua's Beauty School Drop In at Chadstone last week. Tons of fun, lots of interesting tips, and a couple of purchases. I'll share all the details soon :)


  1. My hoarding was partly why I started my Project Pan :) All the half-used products are steadily disappearing now!

    1. I'm not sure I want to mess my skin around for the sake of finishing a few cleansers. Fortunately, infiltrating my family members' supplies to plant a few extras is completely harmless ;)
