A long while ago I did some articles on using beauty products that you no longer liked/used well, Total Beauty has just released their own version.
My favorite ways to use up cosmetics include mixing my own Tinted Moisturizer, and using those extra bits of face/eye creams and lotions and SPF on your neck, body, arms and hands. Because for heaven’s sake, don’t rub some pricey (or even cheap) lotion left on your hands onto a towel, when you could use it somewhere else.
If I buy a conditioner that absolutely does not work for my hair, I’ll use it up while shaving my legs in the shower. Extra (or icky) shampoo gets used up by giving my dog a bath. Body lotion can function as a light hair-frizz fighter in a pinch (just use what’s left on your hands after applying to your body). Jojoba Oil (my moisturizer of choice) is an amazing cuticle oil (and is the main ingredient of those pricier cuticle oils) and it’s also perfect for legs, face, arms, hair, and hands.
Total Beauty has listed similar tips but also expanded with some nifty ones – like using Petroleum Jelly for buffing out light furniture scratches; others like using lipstick as blush could be a regular nightmare for a gal with even semi-sensitive skin.
Anyhow, here’s the Total Beauty version…
I’d LOVE to hear your thoughts on their recommendations. And do you have any top secret tips for using up beauty products? And perhaps most importantly, were any Bionic Beauties out there fans of MacGyver? I adored that show!!
