This week, after trying to sort through all the crap that my dressing room seems to have gathered, I realized I had one too many body creams. I have been aware of this fact for a while now, and dread opening every beauty box I receive, in case of the dreaded BODY CREAM! Its not till I was doing the photographs for these that once I had separated full size and travel size, I realized that I was just as culpable as GlossyBox and Birchbox, and that I am in fact to blame for the majority of my full sized products.
|My secret stash!|
I'm a little lazy when using body creams.. and only ever use them when I feel in the mood for a good pampering session or when I'm not rushing about. A lot of the time I get a bath late at night so as soon as I get out and do the usual, I'm straight in bed, so slathering body cream on me is the last thing I want to do before I jump into bed, ending up a sticky mess.
BUT! I need to decrease this stash before it gets out of hand. Like my hair products, I am not buying any more body creams till this lot is drastically reduced. The funny thing is, I don't usually buy body creams - 4 of the full sized bottles you see that you may recognize from Bath & Body Works, I just had to buy because its BBW! How could you not? (Oh, and if you smelt the Sweet on Paris, you really would understand why I had to buy it!). The other load are mainly from fragrance sets I have been bought as gifts. The tubs of cream I am to blame again because I got suckered into Body Shop creams on a sale day (and wish I never now because I don't rate them that highly!) but I actually haven't bought a body cream for almost a year now!
|These travel sized ones really don't look as daunting to get through once separated from the daddies!|
Again, I will post new 'compare' pictures in 3 months to see what damage I can do. Body creams do seem to last forever so I'm not expecting huge results!
Please, I ask kindly, to all my friends & family, for the next 5 years no one is to buy me any body creams for Christmas, Birthdays or the bits in between!
