TOPIC: Spring cleaning finds it’s way to your bathroom medicine cabinet!
As we move through our homes cleaning frenzy…we’ve arrived at the water closet, el bano, the salle de bain…OR as we all lovingly refer to it…the bathroom! Beauty expert, Stacy Cox got her rubber duckies in a row and has the inside scoop on what to keep, what to toss and how a metal cookie baking sheet factors into a more polished YOU! Cookie sheet? This is going to be interesting…so where do we start?

4. Recycle your contact lens containers!
Sticking with the multi functional theme for another moment…Don’t toss old contact lens containers out. Keep them and fill them with your grooming essentials:
Hair gel?
Face Moisturizer/SPF?
Lip Balm?
Stain Remover?
Then drop it in your purse, gym bag or brief case and hit the ground running.
 5. IF a face moisturizer smells waxy or odd…toss it! Not sure what to get instead?

6Crest 3D White Brilliance Toothpaste & The Brilliance Boost ($5.99 Each) Just like shampoo builds up a resistance to our hair over time, it’s my belief that toothpaste is much the same. The message here is switch it up with a new toothbrush every 3 months. and if you haven’t tried home whitening products this is an ideal time because Crest 3D White just came out with 2 new products in 2014 that will amplify your smile and leave you money in the bank for other life essentials!·

7. Better Than Cookies???
Take a metal cookie baking sheet into your bathroom, purchase some magnets from the hardware store and affix the magnets to the back of each eye shadow, blush and powder compact so you can create a spring color palette with all that you have makeup wise and rediscover pieces of makeup that had gotten relegated to the backs of various drawers!
8. A “Sharp” Move…
Grab a permanent marker and note on bottles and tubes when you purchased it or look up on a calendar when it’s due to expire so you take the guess work out of the equation moving forward now that we’ve got you reorganized.
