Beauty | The Unused Stash

February 18, 2014

We all have them; Products that we don’t particularly use for whatever reason. Those little pots and tubes that live at the back of our drawers screaming ‘Use me!’ Okay, maybe not quite like that, but you get the picture. Today, I thought I’d share my unused stash with you – hoping that some of you may be able to shed some light on a few products and perhaps give me a reason to use them?

There’s a few skincare bits that I pick up, think ‘please don’t break me out’ and put back down. Once you are in a stable skin routine that works, it’s really hard to break free from it. Well, that’s me anyway. Elemis is a brand I’ve heard lots about but tried few bits from, their Melting Cleansing Gel has sat in my stash since the back end of last year. I think that it’s about time I got my use out of it, don’t you? A gem that’s been raved about is the Clarins Beauty Flash Balm, granted this one is a sample size! I’ve read numerous reviews rating it but I’m still pretty confused about how I exactly use this product?

Something I lusted after and still haven’t used is the Beauty Blender. Despite apparently being able to blend foundation seamlessly into the skin and give a flawless complexion, I just feel this would take up too much time to use on a morning! I’m a bright lip during the day kinda gal, so my eyes are kept simple, but I bought the Maybelline Color Tattoo in On & On Bronze just because everyone else did. It’s so pretty but alas, I’m yet to get to grips with it. On a whim I bought the MAC Blush in Desert Rose and there is literally no reasoning behind the purchase although it looks pretty wearable. *Sigh*.

Have any of you used any of these? If so, please let me know in the comments – I’d like to know if I’m missing out! Also, what’s in your unused stash? I’d love to know that too. Thanks for reading!
