I use five products each morning when I put on my makeup. But to get to those five products, I have to rumble around in a drawer full of lipsticks, mascaras, eyeshadows and miracle lotions and potions.
The drawer is full of things I bought and then either didn’t use or didn’t use more than once or twice. But, because I paid for it, I don’t want to throw anything away.
In my linen closet there is a basket full of sample shampoos, lotions, soaps and other hotel-sized bottles picked up on my travels. Occasionally I’ll dip into the basket when someone goes to summer camp or we’re going to the beach, but whatever I take is always replenished by the next trip.
I’ve donated unused products to women’s missions and shelters before. But the products that had been opened just languished in the drawer.
Now, thanks to Project Beauty Share, slightly used makeup and other products can be put to good use again…
