Are you a product junkie?

I am! I've just realized that I actually have more products than what I normally use. I have two whitening soaps, 1 germicidal soap, a shampoo, a conditioner, two hair treatments that I should put on weekly, a body scrub that I rarely use. Three colognes and three perfumes, all I don't use. A cream and cold cream, that I rarely use either. I don't think I'm high maintenance, since I don't put on cosmetics, except for lip gloss which I have three. I just have too much than what I really use. And I just keep buying. hehe. I just watched a commercial about a product, and I thought, "hey I should get that one". lol. Damn those commercials. hehe. Is this normal? hehe. Who out there is a product junkie like me? Of course, it also applies to other products, like gadgets or food...

me too. but not that much. ^__^;; i especially like buying beauty products like lip gloss, lipsticks, mascara, eye liner, etc. i have lots of lip glosses and lipsticks and i only use few of them. some of them i just store somewhere. when i buy a lip gloss or a lipstick, i would tell myself, this is perfect for night parties! or this is perfect for sunny days! but i would end up storing some of them. ^__^;; and then with the mascara and eyeliners, i would buy another one even if i still have a good one i'm using and then i would just store them also away. its because the new ones i would buy would have a different feature from my old ones. ^__^;; i have also bought some creams which i ended up using for just a day because i saw another brand with better features. ^__^;; now, i make sure that i buy only those i need and i prevent myself to change brands every now and then because its just not good with the skin. ^__^

It's so difficult to stop one's self especially if the product looks so good. hehe. Personally, I get swayed by packaging. hehe. Really crazy right? I used to buy makeup. Like you, I think "hey, this would be perfect for parties". But then the parties never come around. hehe. Or sometimes, just occassionally. Like once in 6 months? And I don't have night life either. And I feel that wearing makeup to school is too much. So now, I don't buy makeup even if they look really nice. hehe. We should have self control. hehe. It's difficult, but we must try.

i feel that way too. i also think that its too much to wear make up at the office because we're not like other offices who really needs to wear make up to look formal. our clients are not usually "formal" after all. so i have these beauty products, like face powder, blush on, eye shadow, etc etc which i use very seldom. ^__^;; so i really try hard not to buy again. good think i never really gotten used with going to the make up section of a department store.

I am sooo a product junkie...I mean i really am a gadget junkie...its like not even funny...I really like to go and have a look at the latest gadgets...and sometimes i like to have the new gadgets that are out there...but see the only problem with this is that i will get them home and really never touch them again..because i can either not learn how to work them or either they just really grow old with me really fast....

I love to look at gadgets too! But I never get to bring one home, because I don't have enough money. lol. What do you do with those gadgets lying around in your home? Maybe you should give them to me... hehe. Or maybe not. They'll probably just be lying around in my house too. hehe.
