I’ve been thinking of trimming my stash for a while now; it’s overflowing and absolutely insane for one person but the hoarder in me can’t bear to get rid of things. But I’m moving out of my parents’ house in 8 months and they’re having a major renovation next month, so I suddenly had the urge to purge. I should be a lot more ruthless, but one item a week is all I can do to stop myself from putting it all back! I usually lump these in the empties post but they are not exactly “empty” – and I think it’s good to know about the things that we actually don’t manage to run through!
The first to get tossed out is this Lip Smacker Fanta Orange. I imagine that there will be lots of lip balms in the toss it posts because I have so much lip balms that I don’t use anymore. This is old, very old. I barely used it because I liked how it smelt in the stick, but I absolutely hated it on my lips with that sickly artificially sweet scent. It also didn’t make my lips feel moisturised. It hasn’t changed in texture or smell, but I don’t think I will ever use it other than the occasional take-it-out-and-sniff-and-put-it-back. I think this is actually my very first and only lip smacker, and I don’t think I will be getting more soon.
