In case you haven’t heard, the home-organizing Netflix series Tidying Up With Marie Kondo is the newest binge-watching fascination. The interest in this new show doesn’t come as surprise with people trying to make way for better habits in the new year. We see what you did there Netflix — releasing a show about cleaning up on January 1st, very clever. And according to the tweets, you'll be tempted to start tidying up after just one episode.
If this happens and you don’t know where to start, let us make a suggestion: your beauty collection. With our love for stocking up on things we already have plenty of, it’s probably one area of your life that can use some trimming. While it's difficult to let go of products you love, you might have some that should already be in the trash — like that serum from two years ago that's
probably definitely expired — and the old packaging is a dead giveaway.
We're here to help you figure out which products your bathroom are outdated, so that you can toss them. Ahead, the oldies you gotta let go in 2019, and the new packaging you should look for when you go to replace it. Once you get rid of the crusty creams and dated palettes, you'll be left with that signature joy Kondo is always talking about.
