The easiest is to go through items that have expiration dates that should more or less be followed and then toss. Like a mascara that’s half-used from two years ago probably should get tossed 😛 After that, look for items you do NOT like – these are the things you bought, tried, and didn’t work out for you but you still kept. Put these in a box and donate or pass along to a friend/family member. Then you can start looking through products you use and products you never use – stuff you never use might be worth giving to a friend. If it’s that one red you love but only wear for a special occasions, obviously keep that! 🙂

I haven’t been impressed by them overall, but I’m one of those people who would only see value if they were full-sized (and always that way) and products geared towards my interests (maybe a box that’s just for eyes, lips, cheeks, etc. or bright colors, anti-acne, glitter, etc.). I keep seeing boxes with skincare packets of $300/oz. products – but you get maybe one or two uses. You can’t exactly see if something works with only two uses. Other times, the products seem like shades that weren’t selling well or are just about to be discontinued (and sometimes, just really old stock). I get BarkBox (for dogs), but I probably wouldn’t do it again (not at full price – I got a deal on Fab.com that made it cheaper) – it’s too much of a grab bag, I guess, and I’d rather spend the monthly subscription fee on one good toy/treat.
