I'm a cosmetic/skincare product junkie. I've always loved to try new products, the glitter of the packaging is way too irresistible for me. And I believe what they're selling. I've always bought the good stuff too. And I think it's working. A friend I hadn't seen in a couple of years, told me I looked like a young kid last evening. I think the lighting helped, but still!!!
So in this time where a bit of focus and prioritization has more meaning than ever, I'm making a vow, right here, right now. I am not going to buy any new products for one year, 52 weeks, 365 days. I'm going to use all the wonderful creams, lotions, polishes, masks, serums that are currently in my possession or that I receive as free samples. My sweet sister-in-law works at a fabulous Parfumerie in Germany, and if she's reading this, she'll know I could use her help!
A couple of disclaimers here... makeup (foundation) and mascara are the only purchases I'll make over the next year. Unless the samples are good matches. Fair?
OK, just writing this is making me nervous. I LOVE my newly discovered Arcona products which I have a bit of a supply remaining, but not close to a years worth. But all the photos here, are just a brief inventory of what I have available to me. I think my dear mom might still be using samples I left back there decades ago! This is a long time coming. So wish me luck, and send me your helpful hints and your stories of addiction to beauty products. They would be most welcome!!
