Shopping The Stash #1

I'd be kidding myself if I told anyone I didn't have enough products already, and yet I still seem to justify spending stupid amounts of money on new stuff each month. Now, instead of going all crazy and putting myself on to a spending ban I know I couldn't maintain, I've decided to go and 'Shop My Stash' where basically you look at all your products, think about what you've neglected and use it! Simple!

I really really love the idea of this but the results just don't match up to the image I have in my head for what I want my skin to look like after using it. Perhaps I've been a bit unfair in writing this off, who knows it might actually make a slight difference to my skin?

Yes, I did include this in my haircare routine not too long ago, however I stupidly decided to buy even more for the pure fact that it was on offer (FAIL!). Needless to say It's gonna take me 12 years to get through it all at the rate I'm currently using it, so I'm going the full-hog and using it non-stop!

I've had a pretty bumpy ride with with dry shampoo as you'll know if you read my review. I lost complete interest in trying to make what was actually a pretty cruddy product work for me. With my stash of 12 (?!?!?!) cans of various dry shampoo's building up I decided I had no option but to try and use it up because I HATE throwing near-full products away.

MUA Lipstick in Shade 3 -
After discovering the Natural Collection lipsticks, I began to neglect what was actually quite a pretty, creamy, bright pink lipstick that is probably my biggest beauty steal of all time! Not gonna lie you've got to be having a "Look at me!" day to be wearing this, but I think it'll be perfect for brightening up the dull black and grey outfits I'll start to wear throughout Winter!

Sanctuary Body Butter -
I have absolutely no idea where on Earth I accumulated this from. It was unopened when I found it so I figure there's no harm in using it? The smell is an acquired taste (or scent ...whichever!), very strong and almost perfumey (reminds me of soap and glory a bit!), although as far as I know Sanctuary is quite a 'luxury' brand to some extent? I guess for that reason it should be pretty beneficial for my winter skin!

No7 Stay Perfect Nail Polish in 'Oyster' -
Again another product I never remember buying and again another product completely unopened. I presume I bought this for cheap when the Boots vouchers were out. It's a pretty neutral colour so I'll be great for A/W!
