Firstly, let me confess: I’m an extreme hoarder and have a habit for holding on to things for too long. Besides old receipts (they’re memories!) and clothing that hasn’t seen daylight in years, I simply cannot get rid of my beauty products. I should, of all people, know that they expire at a certain point and I need to throw them out.
As someone who receives beauty products from brands every now and then, it can sometimes be slightly overwhelming when you’re looking for a refill for your moisturiser and come across five completely different products in your stash to choose from: Anti-aging? Lightweight and hydrating? Gel or creme?
I finally had a major clear out last year of all the things that don’t (yes) spark joy – or had expired months ago, oops – but there are just some beauty products that I’m still hanging on to til the last few drops. Below, a round up of all the products I’m bringing into 2020 despite the whole new year new spiel – yes, because they’re that good.
