Four Products I Own But Never Use

Items I Don't Use Enough

I am so bad when it comes to buying hyped up skin care and beauty products and then have them sitting in my cupboards/ drawers for months on end – or sometimes longer – never to see the light of day. I have been trying to get better when it comes to buying new things and have really pulled back but it doesn’t stop the fact that I have so much stuff which hasn’t seen the light of day. Everything on this list I am going to push myself to try out and use because eventually I want to stream line my collection even more.

Charlotte Tilbury Dry Mask

I bought this dry mask earlier this year after all the hype about it. The dry mask works like a normal sheet mask but comes out of the packet dry which was enough to intrigue me, and each mask can be used more than once which made the price tag seem a little more bit more reasonable. This has been sat alongside my other sheet masks and while I have used some I’ve never reached for this one, and considering the price I should be using it within an inch of it’s life.

This Works and Bobbi Brown

This Works In Transit Camera Close- Up

I had this one on my wishlist for ages because it boasts being a mask, a moisturizer and a primer all in one and lazy me thought, great, one product which can do what you’d usually use three to do. I toyed with being a full sized bottle until I saw it was in a one off beauty box which worked out much cheaper so I bought it, and then ever since the bottle of the product has just sat in my drawers clogging things up. I really want to try this and love it, but at the same time if I do I can’t justifyΒ buying it straight away as I have so many other products to use up first.

Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick

I don’t remember why I bought this to be honest, it might have just been a spur of the moment Selfridge’s purchase but I think I used it once then put it in my collection and it got eaten up with all the other foundations and concealers I own. To be honest it’s pretty unique as I don’t have anything with the coverage of a foundation which is in a creamy stick form like concealer so I’m really hoping that my skin tone hasn’t changed since I bought it and that it lives up to it’s price point.

Photography Fluid

Niod Photography fluid

Niod is part of the Deceim range which I had no idea of until recently when The Ordinary brand seem to have taken over. This photography fluid was plastered across a few bloggers accounts so I looked into it and decided to buy it to see what it did to my skin and that’s as far as I’ve gotten. It’s a foundation fluid which is designed to reflect radiance onto your skin, specifically through the camera lense. The serum texture contains light refracting prisms, tone and hue correctors which is meant to make your skin looking ah-mazing, and seeing as I never find my skin quite as smooth as I’d like in photos I thought it would be a great addition. Next time I’m going out and know loads of photos will be taken I need to give it a whirl and see if it takes a difference.

    I wish I could say something about these products. I have no idea what these are. I can only say, please use these products love. My wife agrees with me too, she asks me to request you to use them.

    I don’t have any idea about these products, how they actually works but i suggest you to give these products to someone who want to use them, if you’re not using them.

    I can’t really say much about these products because I am not familiar with it. But if you are not using them, it would be a good idea to give it to someone who will use it or else those products will get expired before you get to use them xx

    I’m intrigued about the dry face mask and how well it works, definitely pricey though

    I do the same thing, but with clothes instead! I’ll forget about them for awhile, but a lot of times I’ll come around to working them into my wardrobe months or even years later.

    I tend to have a lot beauty products bought for me which I never end up using until months (sometimes a year) later. I think the plus to having a stash is that you always something xx

    Bobbi Brown foundation stick is my favorite, it is so creamy to get the perfect complexion and the best thing is that it is buildable. I wasn’t sure about it in the beginning but once I got used to it…I love it!

    I have a few products that I don’t use too but luckily I tend to buy cheap makeup. That being said the photography fluid does look cool!

    I have been living on that Bobbi Brown foundation for years now. It is my absolute must have as I have a lot of acne scar, hyperpigmentation, and my skin in on the dry side (plus it’s winter here). It works the best in terms of coverage and doesn’t emphasize the dryness on my skin. I’d say to please use it if it still matches your skin tone or else give all these things to someone who’ll use these. πŸ™‚

    Thanks to your article I finally know what to do with This Works In Transit Camera Close- Up that I got in Sephora few months ago as a gift πŸ™‚ It sits there in my bathroom and waits for the better days πŸ™‚ But now I know I can use it for my travels when I have to limit my luggage πŸ™‚

    Best,

    I’m kind of the same, but with makeup. I so much NEED to buy something, so I can put safely in my draw and not use it for months.

    I am on the same side as you, i gather things but didn’t use them but i am working on this bad habit of mine. I will suggest you to do the same or give them to someone who are needy for these things. πŸ™‚

    I am just like you – I fall for the hype, buy it, use it once or twice then it gets stashed away. I’ve decided to start rediscovering the products and if I still don’t use them, passing them onto friends.

    Ah! We all have such products that we own but never use. I have very few beauty products but still I’ve got some that I don’t use. What are you planning to do with these now? Make sure to check the expiry date.

    Now this was a original beauty post! To admit that we sometimes don’t always use what we buy….but then again,it does apply to all of us at some level,myself included….

    I’m terrible for hoarding things unopened, every year (or so) I do a purge, I always wonder what the use by dates would be on products like these?

    I am so guilty of this too! I end up reading about something on someone’s blog or seeing it on Insta and then will go out to buy it and never use it… These products look good though. Good luck with not buying things you don’t end up using lol

    I think we all do impulse buys , use them once and ditch them in the drawer.I can’t say I do that with make up but I do did it with cloths. I hope you get the chance to make use of these products again.

    I can agree with the fancier items, we tend to not use them as much. It’s so easy to throw them back in the drawer. But use them! ~ http://viabella-thebeautifullife.blogspot.com/
