In my medicine cabinet



I have a fluctuating , constantly changing relationship with beauty products. 
I always find that change is good for your skin and I have been told using same products for a long period of time changes how the products work for you. Your skin becomes too used to the products and as a result, the products don't work as well. Apparently the same goes for hair products.
Sometimes I love products so much I stock up on them, becoming a little bit of a hoarder (Avene Spring Water) and sometimes I'll like products and leave it at that once the product is finished. Sometimes, I go back to products a couple years later.
I always somehow accumulate hundreds of unopened, great quality, reputable products, and they sit there untouched. On a side note, I think that it's extremely important to be vary of how long you keep products after they've been opened. Mascara can accumulate so much bacteria. 


I think the most important thing is clean skin. A typical day includes a natural look with a small amount of tinted moisturizer, some highlighter (especially I'm looking tired), and a sweep of mascara. 
Anyway, here is a picture of one of my spaces for products. I'll try to list off all of them. 
Unfortunately, I don't organize these by type of product so my face, body, and hair products are all together. I apologize if everything is all over the place!

I don't use all of these products everyday, but I do use all of them.
