How do you store your skincare?

In my makeup room, I have larger plastic bins that are by kind of product (night time moisturizers, serums/treatments, etc.) for some, but I started to store more of them in my bedroom closet so that I’d remember to switch it up a little more often.

On a shelf in my bathroom. I keep my Vitamin C serum in my fridge. I store replacement skincare with my travel toiletries in a clear IKEA SAMLA box.

95% of mine is stored on the right side of my makeup mirror. Two large jars of my skin cream are stacked on top of each other, almost everything else; serums, oils, sunscreen moisturizer, day eye cream are all standing upright in a rectangular office drawer divider in top of my dresser.

I store my skincare in the bathroom, since there is were my routine takes place. I try to keep my bathroom as dry and cold possible, with good ventilation, so I never had issues with that.

The items I use daily are on the vanity (cleanser, toner, eye cream, morning serum, SPF), the ones I use less often are in the top drawer (mostly exfoliators, treatments, masks, things I apply at night and rotate from day to day, or I use based on the needs of my skin). Back-ups are stored in a lower drawer of the vanity.

I keep products in current use in my bathroom medicine cabinet. Products I will need in the next month or so are in Elfa drawers under the desk I use as a vanity. Out of season products are under my bed. I live in a four season climate and my skin is normal, oily or dry depending on the season so I have different versions of all my skin care.

Kind of all over the place. A couple things (eyebrow serum stuff I would be too lazy to put on otherwise, lip balms) are by my bedside, a few (masks and actives I don’t use often) are in a drawer in the bedroom; some (face cleaners) in the shower, still more in the medicine cabinet, and what doesn’t fit in there on a shelf next the sink in the bathroom; and the rest (including samples and things I haven’t tried yet) is on the desk in the living room, where my makeup also is.

I’m kind of all over the place. I store Bobbi Brown balms and CT Magic cream on my vanity if I need a little more moisture before my foundation. I store my night routine stuff in my bathroom, on the counter in a vanity tray. It’s climate controlled in there. Next to my bed on the nightstand are extra oils and back up moisturizer. And lip clear balms.

Downstairs I store my steamer, masks, my steamer and some skin cleaner downstairs in cabinets and some moisturizer in office, with plenty of moisturizing lip balms and glosses in every room. I also do masks during working hours when not in a ton of meetings or video calls for that day. I’m also better about putting treatments on my hair. I’m taking care of myself a lot better having these things at my fingertips since telework started vs how ragged out I got working hard in the office.

Just typing this out makes me realize I really need to be more organized though. And that my skin is kind of dry. It gets easily dehydrated and my lips chap during the winter when the heat has to go on.

The skincare I am currently using is in the bathroom. I bought a little two-tier shelf for it. I also have a small storage basket for other stuff on the bathroom counter. I will buy a replacement a few weeks before mine runs out. Especially if I can get a discount or savings coupon or Rakuten cash back. I have a skincare basket of sorts on my spare room shelf. Some goes there. In summer, moisturizers and eye cream, etc. will go inside my downstairs mini fridge. My house is warm and they can go gloopy.

I actually have some in my medicine chest , also under bathroom counter. I keep my mists , and , sprays, and some masks in the refrigerator-living in Az, itโ€™s nice to have it cold !!

The products that are in use are under my bathroom sink. My back ups are in my spare bedroom tallboy, every drawer is has designated products, facial cleansers share with shower gels, day moisturizers share with day eye creams and sunscreen, body lotions and foot and hand creams, night time moisturizers share with night time eye creams, serums and lip treatments, essences share with toners, facial oils, cuticle oils and eyebrow/eyelash and scalp treatments.

Lip balms and hand lotion are spread throughout the house (and my purse and my car). Serums currently in use are stored in a mini-fridge in our bedroom. Other skincare currently in use is stored in a sliding storage container under the bathroom counter. Skincare backups and skincare that are not currently in use (e.g., because it is only used in another season) is stored in the vegetable drawer of our 2nd full-sized refrigerator (in the laundry room). My husband is the cook of the family, and (thankfully) he is accommodating of my fridge storage!

I keep the things I use every day together on a small glass cake stand on the corner of the bathroom vanity by the sink. The larger bottles, jars and a small vase with certain tools for masks etc line the side of the vanity beside the cake stand. Other things I only use occasionally live in a small drawer nearby. Foundation, primer and the like live in the makeup organizer at the other end of the vanity with the color cosmetics of the week. Backups have their own drawer in my iris drawers in the bedroom.
