Pebble Grey asked if I would like to take part in their Spring Clean Your Cabinet challenge and of course the answer was yes! This follows on from a survey carried out last year by Escentual.com that showed British women keep make up for up to 6 years after it's expiry date. I am not that bad with make up but cannot remember exactly when I bought my current mascaras and there is definately stuff in my bathroom cabinet that has seen better days. Those things you buy, try one, hate and never throw away. Lots of those. I was sent the beautiful Linden bathroom cabinet to store my new goodies in along with a Boots voucher to stock up on the essentials. The cabinet still needs to be connected but when it is it will obviously light up as well as demist and includes a shaver socket.
I totally forgot to take a photo of the old cabinet before Gray got to work. Just look at some of the stuff I had been hoarding?! I don't even know how long I have had some of this stuff for or when I would have bought it. It has all gone now and I am going to dig the old make up that is hiding in the bottom of a wardrobe somewhere out and get rid of all that too.
I don't really wear much make up these days other than the basics so I threw the mascaras and eyeliner away and purchased new ones along with a few other products I would like to try. I definately do not want any nasty bacteria getting in my eyes and am going to make a note to change them at least every six months. I have also moved my perfume out of the bedroom as it will keep much better in the cabinet and out of sunlight.
I love the end result, so much so I might even move my toothbrush in ;)
