Do you repurpose skincare products?

It sometimes happens that I purchase a product and it doesn't suite my skin. I have dry skin and I always double check the ingredient list before purchasing a product. Even so, I made some mistakes 😅 Here is how I repurposed some products: ✨ Cerave SA Smoothing Cleanser is too drying for my face but I love it for body. The first time I tried it on the face I must admit I didn't like it because it was too harsh. I lost count how many bottles I got to use it as body cleanser. It does miracles for body acne ✨ The Ordinary Glycolic toner is also a little bit harsh for my face. I used it like once per week for face but almost daily on the back of my hands, elbows and knees. It helped with dark patches and KP ✨Soroci Morning Drizzle Bucket Mist is too fragranced for my preferences so I use it as a chest mist. It feels refreshing, especially during hot months I also have some multi purpose products ✨Retinol Eye creams on neck (because they are gentle) ✨Face oil on the hair ends (two-three drops because it can make the hair greasy) ✨Face Moisturizers as hand creams (because they tend to absorb faster) Please share your repurpose/multi purpose products 🥰

I received this cleansing water from Neogen and the floral scent was to strong for my sensitive skin, so now I am using it to clean my makeup brushes 😊

me too i purchase a set of skincare one of them are vitC serum and my face can’t handle it too greasy and makes my face look even dullness 😂 so i use it to my entire body as body serum haha or some moisturiser that’s too heavy for my face i use it as body lotion 😂 or exfoliate toner that too stingy to exfoliate armpit, back neck, knee, and some parts that’s looks dull 🤭 so i havent purchased any body care for a while now 😂

The exfoliating toners do a great job for the entire body indeed 😄

I love using The Ordinary Glycolic Toner for before/after I epilate. it helps a TON with ingrown hairs. I have The Ordinary HA Serum but since everything I have already has HA in it, I’ve switched to using in my hair instead. any moisturizer I don’t like I use as a hand cream, especially before bed. they’re more hydrating than lotions and my hands get dryyyyy. and not technically skincare, but I use lash serums on my brows.

I didn't know that you can use HA for hair. Thank you for letting me know 🤗💕
