Declutter Diary: Makeup and Skincare Boxes

Sometimes I still fantasize about becoming a prolific beauty blogger. I had been keeping boxes of makeup and skincare products for future reference and picture taking. But whenever I saw my little box pile, I got stressed! So I threw away all the boxes and I felt lighter.

It represented a backlog of beauty product reviews that no one really asked for. Haha!

I think it’s time to give up my beauty blogging dreams. I still thoroughly enjoy putting on makeup and doing my skincare routine, but I don’t want to have to take mental notes on what to write in a review. What’s supposed to be an escape shouldn’t feel like a job. I will still write reviews but only when I feel like it and at my own pace.

Next weekend, I’ll go through empty skincare bottles I’ve been keeping because I thought I could write about them. 😅

  1. You’re right Rae, skincare and makeup shouldn’t feel like a chore!

    I had a massive ’empty box’ pile on one of my shelves which I recently got rid of. I now keep only a small paper bag filled with boxes for review references. If it doesn’t fit in the bag, it’s got to go!
