You may have gathered by now, but I -love- all things K-beauty. I love the quirky packaging. I love the the indulgence of them. I love the natural ingredients, even if that includes snail secretion! I love that I'm always finding something new to investigate.
After buying a fair amount of surprise boxes, I have some amazing things to try out, but I also have a box full of doubles. A lot of the doubles are products I really like, but while I'm trying all my new things, the doubles are sitting there being a little unloved. This leaves me with a dilemma. What should I do with them? Should I try my hand at eBay, where up to now, I've been a buyer and in no way a seller? Should I give them as presents to my more cosmetically inclined friends? I honestly don't know. I do know, it feels weirdly un-frugal to be sitting on my own little pile of k-beauty treasure.
Having duplicates means I have the chance to try another new thing. It means I could choose to share my K-beauty love with other people via gifts, or re-sale. For example, at Christmas, I gave my mum some face masks to try. I eased her in gently, giving her the aloe vera or collagen ones rather than those with labelled snake venom! So, what is this new thing I try? e-Baying? Surprise gifting maybe. Or, do I dare try my hand at some kind of competition? I think that would be rather egotistical at this point!
Getting to the Point
I'm hoping someone will have a clever and/or great idea for what I can do with my doubles. To give you some food for thought, here is a picture of some of the K-beauty doubles, but there are more.
In case knowing what the doubles are is helpful to anyone:
- 1 x Benton's Snail Bee High Content Steam Cream (a moisturiser)
- 2 x Benton's Snail Bee High Content Essence
- 1 x Dearberry Ice Cream Hand Cream in Green Tea
- 1 x Tony Moly Appletox Honey Cream (a glorious moisturiser disgused as a red apple)
- 1 x Tony Moly Appletox Peeling Massage Cream (a deep cleanser, review here)
So, if you have a clever idea, post a comment or tweet me. It'd be much appreciated!
