I have been putting off updating my beauty regimen for some time now. Partly because of other expenses taking priority (silly oil heating the silly house) but also, if you were to have looked in my bathroom drawers and cabinets a couple of weeks ago, it was total costmetic chaos. My everyday essentials were mixed in with with random, seldom-if-ever used items that I couldn’t bring myself to toss either because they weren’t completely used up or there was that chance that I would decide I could pull off hot pink lipstick. In short, it was hard to visually separate what I used, what I needed, and what just snuck through the system year after year like that hot guy in high school who can’t read. (Yes, that’s a Catalano reference. Yes, I’m a huge “So-called” dork.)
It turns out that Origins not only recycles their own packaging, but they also take any empty or almost empty cosmetic container regardless of its brand at their stores and at their department store counters. I was so relieved to find out that I didn’t have to clean out the cakey leftovers of my Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer that I had to share the news!
This is like the beauty equivalent of cleaning out my closet, only long overdue. The evidence? A tube of Band-Aid Anti-Itch Gel, expiration: 12/2005. Eek!
Any skeletons (or rotting corpses) in your cosmetic closet? Perhaps it’s time to recycle! Find an Origins near you.
Next up? The fun part! In with the new: updating my beauty routine!
