I have a simple topic to talk about now. I have also got few tips from my side to use the face wash that you dislike. Yeah! you heard it right, the face washes you ‘hate’ to you on your face. So the topic is, ‘What do you do with the face wash that you dislike?’ (Don’t forget to submit your answers on the comment section below)
I have several number of face washes in my vanity case than any other product. Raise your hands if you are a person who buy so many face washes and have them all half finished :D Among all the face washes I own, I have few which I completely hate to use on my face due to several reasons. It might have made my skin oilier, or I might have hated the fragrance.. and so on.. I have found 5 different ways to use those face wash without hurting my skin. Let us find what are they, in this post today.
Use it As Your Body Wash:
Yup! This is the first thing which strikes my mind. I find some of my face washes too heavy or too moisturizing for my normal-oily skin. I feel it is better to use such face washes as body washes than throwing them away or making them wait for a long time, which make them hit their expiry date without any use. So if you have oily or sweaty skin and the face wash you recently bought is too rich for you, rename it as body wash and send it to your bathroom ;)
Your body skin needs extra moisture than your facial skin so your ‘too rich’ face washes might suit your body skin aptly as body washes.
Foot Wash After Pedicure
Do you have the habit of applying foot oils? I do have. I love massaging my feet with a relaxing foot oil, especially after I get my pedicure done. After the foot massage, I do not walk with oil on my feet as I will slip and fall down :P At that moment, I will need something to wash my feet and make it clean and oil free. This situation may happen to you as well. But wait.. don’t reach out for a soap or a body wash. Do you have that Mr.Face wash you hate? Get it and use it to cleanse your feet thoroughly. Make the face wash stay in your pedicure case.
I find some face washes smell very horrible (at least for me) and I use such kind of bad smelling face washes for this pedicure purpose. A bad smelling face wash to cleanse my feet will not affect my nose more than like it does if I use it on my face.
Wash Your Kerchief
How much importance do you give to the fragrance part of your face wash? I am very concerned about the smell and I pick face washes often only for their smell ;) but unfortunately, few of them will not suit my skin type. For an example, I love Dove Oil Control Citrus Face Wash for its smell and bought it last winter but it makes my skin stretchy in winters.
Are you asking how did I manage to finish it? I spared it to wash my hand kerchiefs :D The face wash cleansed my kerchiefs very well and left behind a lovely citrus fragrance.
If you have that ‘super smelling’ face wash on your shelf which doesn’t suit your skin type unfortunately, let it make your kerchief smell good. I am sure, it will definitely do a good job.
Gift It to Someone
Am I sounding sarcastic here?! No I guess. Something you dislike may be liked by some one else so try to gift the face wash(es) you dislike to your friends, siblings or someone else. If they like it, let them at least use it without wasting it. For an example, if you find your face wash too drying for your skin, gift it to your oily skinned bestie. She will love it :)
If none of the above 4 ideas work and you dislike everything about your face wash starting from the fragrance, texture, working etc.. Throw it away without mercy. You do not need something that affects your skin. Its better to throw away a face wash than using it and spoiling your skin. I am sorry; this is not an use ofcourse :D but at-least it is a prevention.
Hand and Foot Scrub:
Update: As per Swati Reddy’s idea on the comment section below, I am adding one more way to use the face wash that you dislike. Add some sugar to it and use it as your hand and foot scrub! Cool idea, Isn’t it? ;) Thank you Swati! :)
So tell me now, how do you use your face wash other than using it on face?
