If there’s one thing I hoard, it’s beauty products…
I’m currently sat at my dressing table assessing my ‘situation’. In front of me is a jumble of beauty products – some I’ve bought myself, some are PR samples, and a few have been gifted to me by friends or family – precariously stored in a variety of repurposed containers (mason jars are a current favourite). It’s clear to me that I don’t use all of them, but I can’t bear to throw them away. So they just sit there, taking up space.
I’m like Ariel from The Little Mermaid with my ‘whozits and whatzits galore’; only, instead of legs, I want a streamlined makeup bag containing a handful of go-to products which fit my skin type.
But something tells me I’m not the only one. According to a survey conducted by beauty retailer Escentual, some people hoard makeup products for as long as six years. Now, I’m happy to say that I haven’t got to that stage (yet), but it got me thinking: if I had to ditch everything else and pick my ‘desert island’ products, what would they be?
I managed to whittle it down to three products – and, refreshingly, they’re all vegan!
