Good Till the Last Drop – September Empties

While cleaning my bathroom a few weeks ago I noticed I’ve accumulated a number of half-empty (or half full, depending on your outlook on life) products. I found myself hoarding some of these products for special occasions. While other products, I completely forgot about, and as a result, sat in the medicine cabinet collecting dust. […]
