07/06/13: Skincare Organisation?

[theholdingcompany 12 compartment holder]

I'm a messy person. 

I can be super organised for certain things, but my room, my skincare and pretty much all of my make up is all over the place.  I know roughly where things are, and sorta where things should be, but I would love to be able to organise my stuff better.

I've seen some amazing posts by veteran bloggers on how they keep track of the stuff they're trying out, the stuff they bought, stuff they were given and so on - but I always find that the second I've organised my own belongings, two minutes later I feel like using the item I've just relegated to the bottom of  the 'barely-ever-use-and-even-then-only-if-it's-a-Thursday-following-a-blue-moon...' bag.  And of course, by the time I'm done I've no doubt up-ended several more bags/boxes/drawers and I'm back to the beginning.

I've thrown out/passed on a lot of skincare/beauty since I started changing up my routine, but the little bit I do have I don't really know where to put in order to keep it...orderly.

So I was wondering - whether it's big or small - how do you sort your stash?

  1. I am struggling to manage my stash now purely because I own so much more stuff than I ever have done before, I do love organising my skincare and makeup though and I am having a bit of an overhaul of my storage at the moment x

    1. Would love to see how you've tackled it when it's done! Good luck :) x

  2. I have clear plastic drawers for my makeup, and then I keep what I use on a day-to-day basis in a tray on my dresser. Skincare is more random - it all basically just sits on a shelf beside my makeup drawers. I'd love to organize it all a little better at some point, but it works for now :)

    1. The plastic drawers sound like a good idea - good way to minimise the space they take up - will have to investigate! Thanks for stopping by :) x

  3. For make up, I like to use a clear-drawer that I bought here

    It is really good at organizing make-up, especially I can see the colours I want right away. It definitely fits liquid foundation packaging but I prefer them to be in the cupboard on its own 'standing'. With my skin care products, they're a bit all over the place since I use them all!
