Turn your unloved beauty samples into a Bathroom Oasis!

Turn your unloved beauty samples into a bathroom oasis #KleenexStyle

We all have extra beauty samples lying around, don’t we?  Between Sephora orders, subscription boxes and sample bags, I can’t resist the offer of a free sample.  The trouble is, I have so many I could never use them up!  After all, it’s not good to switch up your skincare on a daily basis.  I have partnered with Kleenex to show you how you can create an inviting guest bathroom using those exact samples and some gorgeous Kleenex boxes by fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi!

Here’s what you need to create a welcoming oasis for your guests:
  • great smelling candle
  • empty vase filled with beauty samples galore and a cheerfully colored bath poof
  • ring holder (optional but adorable)
  • pretty soap
With those few change you will have everything you need to make your overnight guests feel welcome.  After all, who remembers to pack a bath poof?

Living in a rental condo, it can be hard to make a place feel like home.  I love how easy it is to change up a room with Kleenex Style!  Above, all I did was switch out the Kleenex and the bath soap, and it creates a whole new look – perhaps for your male guests?  I did the same below at my entryway.

Since my entryway is the first thing guests see when they walk in, I want to to look fabulous and be functional at the same time.  Everything has a place – mail goes in the mail holders, while keys, garage door openers and lip gloss all go in the tray.  Switching out the Kleenex again put a whole new spin on the look!

I have always been a fan of Isaac Mizrahi.  I know I am dating myself here, but I remember a tip Isaac shared on MTV’s House of Style – anytime you have something like deodorant stuck on your clothes, rub the fabric against itself.  It comes out like magic!  Speaking of dating themselves, did you know that Kleenex has been around for 90 years?
