Products you don't use anymore?

Hello Picky community! I was watching James Welsh' video on skincare products he doesn't use any longer, and it made me think about how my own routine has changed since I first got into skincare. When I first went to Seoul a couple of years ago I didn't know much about the different brands, actives etc. I brought back a huge haul which included a ton of sheet masks. But this year I realised I was still trying to finish the rest of them, cos I simply would forget I had them and/or had a fairly extensive routine and just didn't have the energy to add another step. So since then my routine has become more paired down, and there are some products I have cut out and won't be buying anymore including: 🔹Eye creams - all the ones I've tried gave me milia and not much else than moisture and hydration, so unless my fine lines get really bad suddenly, I'm skipping them for the time being 🔹Sheet masks - if you love them, keep using them - I'm just too lazy 😂 🔹Disposable cotton pads 🔹Reusable bamboo cotton pads - bought them when I phased out the disposable ones, but I haven't been using them at all. So will gift them to a friend. How about you, are there products you used to swear by but don't use anymore?!

i’m the same ! no more cotton pads/rounds for me either ! i used to love just plain old niaciniade serum and would use it daily that i would run out of it so fast ! now i don’t purchase it because a lot of products that i use already have a % of niacinamide in it that works well for me

Yeah, I completely understand that people enjoy them but am kinda happy I'm producing a bit less waste 🙂

I dont use cotton pads anymore, eye creams I have never used before and also mechanical exfoliants such as scrubs! I found out it is easier for me to use my hands when applying toners... But I'm guilty of using sheet masks🙈

Well skincare is self-care, so some allowance is ok without needing to feel guilty 🙂 I think the last time I used a physical scrub was a DIY for the body decades ago haha 🙊

We all need some pampering, especially during this crazy, weird time in the world! 🙂
