Products, products, products.
Some more from my store in my cupboard.
- If it’s seriously expired.
I was checking through some of my stash, dreaming of how nice it will be to have a clear shelf in my bathroom cabinet, and picked up some lice shampoo. Now we haven’t had lice in this household for years but I held onto the shampoo just in case.
Well, it expired in 2008. Tells you how long ago we had an infestation. When youngest darling son was in primary.
Time to toss. And with a chemist 5 min walk up the road, I don’t need to be a chemist warehouse myself, especially not for expired products with serious chemical ingredients.
- If your skin reacts to it
Threw out a sample cream that made my face flushed. I’m not so obsessive that I will use up samples I react badly to.
- If it is annoying
I threw out, and didn’t use up, a lip gloss. One of those apparently plumping glosses. I think all they have is the ingredient from capsicum so your lips tingle and you think they are plumping. I don’t need my lips to be irritated and I have enough lip glosses to not need to hang on to this one.
- If it’s smelly
Threw away another lipgloss that was a bit wiffy. Sign all is not well with the ingredients.
