June’s Using it Up!

As I mentioned in one of my last posts, I was using June as an opportunity to use up different beauty products. I’m not the only person doing this, Cornflakegirl has also been using things up! I’m like a magpie when it comes to buying new products, anything new and ‘shiny’ and I WANT it. I have a handful of products I regularly rebuy but I like trying out new things. Considering I don’t buy high end stuff (sob, I wish!), this means my habit is a relatively inexpensive one. The downside to this is what while everything does eventually get used up, I tend to get side tracked and start using new products before finishing the ones I was using. So I have tons of half used bottles and jars lying around. So I rooted through my stash, throwing anything that couldn’t be used anymore and pulling out the stuff I could use in June. Let’s see how I did!


Not too bad I think! I managed to finish off a Dove deodorant, Pearl Drops toothpaste, a face scrub, a L’Oreal Perfect Clean cleanser, Lush Snow Fairy Shower Gel, Lush Vanilla Dee-Lite Body Lotion, Trilogy Cream Cleanser, Jelly Belly Shower Gel and Lush Olive Branch Shower Gel. I also finished Schwarzkopf Liquid Silk Gloss shampoo, a small Boots Soltan Factor 25 sun cream and a lip balm. That’s 12 items!

I enjoyed doing this, I only bought new deodorant, shampoo and conditioner (the conditioner has gone AWOL, I think it’s been robbed from me!). I think I’ll do this again for July, I still have loads of bits and bobs lying around to finish up.


  1. Not baaaad at all! I'm atrocious at using things up as I'm forever following recs & allowing my rubber arm to be twisted! With the exception of hairspray & dry shampoo that my teen darlings insist on using at breakneck speeds for their Flock o' Seagulls hair dos :/ You're an inspiration!

  2. Hahaha,I'm in stitches over that Flock o' Seagulls comment!! None of my teenage brothers seem to have any interest in that, though one is beginning to use gel every now and again,bless!

    And I didn't want to buy anything new in June, unless I used it up (I obviously bought new deodorant once I'd finished this one!). I made the mistake of stepping into Debenhams. Within 2 minutes, I was getting a make over and had my arms (not so) twisted into buying new blusher :/ Also spotted new VO5 Shampoo and Conditioner in Tesco & bought those too! (The conditioner has gone missing, my Dad has stolen it!). Let's see if July will be more successful!
