Products I want to use up

Hi Beauts! 

Going through my make up and skincare collection, I've noticed I have a couple of products that are half used up, or have a huge dent in them at least. Two things I have a serious problem with constantly buying are Lip balms and hand creams.

I've decided that I'd pick out the products that I've hit pan on and things that have been half used up, and concentrate on finishing off those before I decide to open/buy similar items. I also find it highly satisfying using up a whole bottle/tube/whatever of something.

Body and skincare:

Clinique Happy Body Smoother - I got this as part of a gift set a while back and I've used almost half of it up. My problem is, I have so many body lotions on the go that I forget what I have. This is one that needs to be finished, and i think it's the perfect time - it's definitely a summer scent

Soap and Glory Heel Genius - I only have a quarter of a tube left so this definitely had to be included. I bought this a while back, and recieved another tube in a gift set I got for Christmas

Clarins Hand and Nail Treatment - One of many hand creams I have in my collection, and one I'm not overly keen on. However, I was brought up never to waste anything so I shall be using the whole thing

Balance Me Rose Otto Intensive Lip Salve - I got this free in a magazine so long ago, and once again because I have so many lip balms open I forgot about it. I love this, especially the smell so I'll enjoy finishing this for sure

Make Up:

Wet and Wild eyeshadow in Cream - I hit pan on this ages ago and because I have so many neutral shades like this one I don't really use it. It's a gorgeous all over lid shade and great for highlight too 

No7 eyeshadow in Wheatsheaf - I've added this to my little hit list because I have this in a full size too and never use either. Time for some neutral eyes I think

No7 Blush in Candy Pink - I have a ridiculous amount of blushes and still keep buying more. I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to finally use the rest of this one before I buy any more

Rimmel Sweet Jelly Lipgloss in Jammy - I have a few of these tubes from Rimmel in different shades and once again because I have a stupid amount of lip products I thought I'd best get cracking on using them up

I think I might do this either every month or maybe every 3 months, depending how I get on with tackling this lot. Hopefully I can get through them quickly, which means I can buy more.....mwahahahaaaaa :P

I have a lifestyle blog too if you fancy a peek
