When You Clean and Find Treasures

I can’t be the only one that procrastinates deep cleaning in drawers. Okay, I procrastinate on a lot of cleaning outside of my normal daily chore routine. When I do clean I sometimes find old things I had forgotten about or thought were lost, or things that I have yet to try out. I cleaned out a few drawers in my kitchen and room the other day and discovered a little bit of both! I was pretty excited, and I want to share some on this post.

The first couple of things I stumbled on were my Sonia Kashuk body butter and a layering necklace (set of 3 separate necklaces) that I purchased from Target last winter. I think I purchased them last winter. This was a pretty neat rediscovery for me since the layering necklace look has been trending for a bit, and these 3 seemed so perfect together for me. That and I recall getting this set on clearance for $3-4. I am not typically into floral scented lotions, but this one is very nice to me. It’s not musky or has too much of a perfume scent, it’s just a light floral scent that smells wonderful on my skin. It also feels incredible on the skin and makes it soft, which is essential for me in the Fall and Winter. My skin is naturally dry.

I ended up stumbling on even more things after that find! I have never used that paper mask, and I think I got it in an ipsy bag awhile back, but I’m not entirely sure. For some reason, paper masks intimidate me for whatever reason. Maybe it’s the fact that they’re supposed to just fit over your face? Also stumbled on a thing of Bath and Body Works lotion that was my favorite for a bit, but I misplaced it. It’s also possible my toddler placed it somewhere. Anyway, I bought this during a huge sale last summer and I’m happy I found it even though it might be a bit too much of a summer smell for me in the transition to fall. Yes, I’m that girl that even switches out lotions and perfumes to match the season. It is a very pretty scent though. It also has the the faintest floral scent mixed in with peaches, so it is neither too fruity nor too floral.

I purchased the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette last January and forgot that I had placed the deluxe samples of primer it came with in my kitchen “junk” drawer. I kind of figured they were just small samples, but I am really glad I stumbled on these again and took a closer look! The samples are pretty decently sized, and I have been using them for about 3 days now. Mostly the original formula, and it does indeed work. Not sure if I will purchase a full sized one of any of them (4 samples in all) since I am currently using my Too Faced Shadow Insurance, but maybe once I run out of that I will give the primer potions a spin.

Last thing I came across was a Nyx Matte lipstick in “Merlot.” I forgot how pretty and perfect this red shade is for fall. It’s a bit deeper than the “Perfect Red” from the same line, but not too dark to be considered vampy at all. I need to get to work on using up all of my Nyx lipsticks (which is a ton) so I am happy I came across this one now instead of later.

Has anyone else discovered some new or old goodies while cleaning lately? I would love to know! Finding things also makes me want to clean…almost.
