Soooooo...since we moved I actually have a medicine cabinet now! I really missed having one, and was really excited to see it! And what better way to start things off than to show you what's inside!!
***All items purchased by me, was a gift or sample/gift with purchase. Links are to previous reviews.
I don't keep everything in here. For one, I don't like to keep backups and other things that are more sensitive to heat & humidity (like oils) that I won't immediately use. For another...there's simply not enough room! But really, with traveling so much I'll probably end up just keeping a lot of this stuff in my travel bag since it's kind of a pain (and hard to keep track of) to keep going back and forth. That's what I did in our old place - my toiletry bag had a permanent home on the bathroom counter!
Here's what we have...
Hair stuff: J. Crew tortoise clips (small), Aveda Dry Remedy Daily Moisturizing Oil (my new favorite hair oil because it REALLY moisturizes & smells amazing!), Living Proof Flex Shaping Hairspray (this is one of the few hairsprays I've found that comes in a smaller size and smells good - a hard combo to find!).
Second use-it-up shelf
Shiseido Benefiance Pure Retinol Instant Treatment Eye Mask, One Love Organics Pretty Pores Complexion Toning Mist (I'm kinda over this, but unfortunately I still have a backup bottle - repeated lesson learned...don't buy backups), Oskia Nutri Active Day Cream (had a reaction to it so I only use it on my neck), Caudalie Grape Water (forgot how much I liked this - bought it as a throwback but not sure if I'll purchase again because I have other mists I need to use), Omorovicza Cleansing Foam (part of my Skincare Cleanout), Aveda Damage Remedy Leave In Conditioner (nice, but like other stuff more), RGB Cuticle Oil.
On the use-it-up shelf, but not really a use it up item...L'Occitane Hand Cream!! Sideways it takes up a lot of room, so I managed to flatten the tube enough to shorten it and fit it upside down in a container so that it could at least occupy a smaller space. Not really room for now on the other shelves LOL!
Third main skincare shelf
I've decanted much of this to make it easier for travel. Cucumber Seed Oil (testing it out), DIY cleansing oil (future post!), Glycolix Elite Fortified Facial Cream, LUSH Celestial Facial Moisturizer (last jar - love it but love the Glycolix even more so I won't be repurchasing), Alpha H Liquid Gold, Professional Solutions Vitamins B,C,E & Ferulic Serum, African Botanics Pure Marula Oil, Sunday Riley Start Over Active Eye Cream, Shiseido Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Intensive Eye Contour Cream (was faithful to this for almost a decade, but Sisley has won me over so I won't be repurchasing after this jar).
Fourth, misc & fragrance shelf
Bits & bobs, Jungleman Deodorant, Vichy Sunscreen, Stella rollerball, Jo Malone Nectarine Blossom & Honey, Jo Malone Redcurrent & Cream.
Ok, so on a side note...how do people have such beautiful (& seemingly staged & decorated) cabinets?? I've tried my best to make mine look organized, but Pinterest-worthy I think not ha ha!! See what I mean below...
I guess my question is...do REAL people have cabinets that look like this?? Any suggestions for how to keep mine functional, but maybe look a little prettier?!!
