It’s time. Roll up your sleeves and block off the weekend. It’s time to spring clean your bathroom and beauty routine!
If tackling these areas are thankless tasks that leave you in stress hives, read on for a few low-effort/high-reward categories to clean in a few hours!
TOSS BRUSHES WITH BROKEN BALLS AND BRISTLES
Round up all your brushes and combs and do a ruthless cull. From the ones in your handbag, your gym bag and the ones littering your house–do a thorough evaluation. Are your brushes still in good condition? Are any bristles missing? Are there broken bristles?
If they are in need of replacement, cut your losses and toss them in the trash. The Detangle Me Wet/Dry Brush is also available in miniature and are great options for everyday scenarios and are great options for kids with its snag-free bristles!
Give the brushes that survived the cull a deep clean–cut, unravel any hair around the bristles and wash the brush in soapy water before rinsing and air drying!
GIVE YOUR LIPSTICKS A SNIFF TEST
With many of us refraining from wearing lipstick lately, it’s worth checking to see if any of yours have gone off.
Round them up and do a sniff test. For those that pass the sniff test, do a visual test for any discolouration or signs of mold. And if you end up swatching, notice any changes in texture or crumbling.
For any remaining lipsticks, it can help to do a wear test to see if there are any colours you just don’t like anymore!
REVISIT YOUR NAIL POLISH COLLECTION
If you’re a standard gel wearer, maybe it’s time to give your nail polish collection away.
If you’ve rediscovered your polish and are doing your own manicures, round up your polish. Look out for any separation in the polish or goopy texture. If you still want to keep the formula, set them aside.
TOSS ANY OLD SUNSCREEN
This is not a spring clean, but a total overhaul. Toss the bottles from last summer that are still lurking in your bathroom corners. They can go.
Next time you run out, feel free to buy new!
CHECK IF YOUR TOOLS ARE WORKING WELL
Spring clean–and optimize–your beauty routine by rounding up your tools. That facial cleansing brush, your straighteners and curlers and your epilator.
Check to see if your tools are in good condition. Start by examining the wires for any damage and check to see if the tools are effective and still working.
If it’s time for a change, try going cordless! Our Cordless Convertible Curling Iron/Wand is a great tool that you can take with you–on trips abroad, in your everyday tote or even from room to room in your home. Or the Cordless Flat Iron/Styler Plus+ WWC, which can also work while it’s being charged!
