medicine cabinet shelfie

In our current apartment (full tour coming this month – both video and photos!), our bathroom is so small it literally has no drawers. You read that correctly. Not one drawer!  If you look at the above photo, it gives a “woman-attacks-small-bathroom” vibe. Just to give you some scale here.

But we do have a linen closet and this medicine cabinet, so I thought it could be fun to take a peek into the items we use the most behind the mirror.

I love seeing other #shelfies, so let’s get into what’s in ours, shall we?  And please give us grace… we have one small window in the bathroom but this space gets zero natural light. So while the lighting for these photos was not ideal, I still thought it would be a fun post to share!

Electric Toothbrushes | We both are addicted to our electric toothbrushes! I use this one ($55 off with code CBLELEMENT), and I also use this charcoal whitening from time to time (approved by my dentist).

Elemis Resurfacing Facial Pads | I’ve mentioned these before but when my skin is looking splotchy or I’m seeing the beginning of some breakouts, I’ll use these at night with my skin routine and it really helps keep things at bay. I’m a believer!

Georgette Klinger Facial Mist | This facial mist smells so refreshing and I will reach for it mid-day for an afternoon skin pick-me-up.

Thayers Witch Hazel | I know so many women who swear by this stuff (it has over 10k reviews… so there’s clearly something to it). It’s a great an inexpensive toner that lasts such a long time!

SkinCeuticals Conditioning Solution | My mom bought this for me when I was struggling with some blemishes on my body, and it’s another really great toner for oily skin.

L’Occitane Divine Cream | I love all things L’Occitane (you can see one of their hand creams in the cabinet too – a great stocking stuffer!). They have mastered their lotion formulas and this is one of my favorite face creams they carry.


Tula | If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve heard me talk about Tula on stories.  I have loved their products for years!  I always have their serum (this one and this one), day/night cream, treatment mask and eye cream in my cabinet. I also love their cleanser!

And you can get 20% off with code Kathleen20!

Bliss Cream-to-Water HydraterThis is a really great lightweight moisturizer for day time. Sometimes I’ll add a drop or two of facial oil to it to get a little glow going.

Hard Night Good Morning | I hit Housewife heaven when I connected with D’Andra Simmons earlier this year about her skincare line. Her team generously sent a box of goodies and I have to say, I love every single product I’ve tried so far. This daytime cream feels incredibly luxurious and is cruelty and chemical free. The L22 Elixir is another amazing product that I will apply before a serum!

La Mer Soft Cream | I finally tried my hand at the infamous La Mer soft cream and I get it. When I really want to pamper my skin and feel like my most Mariah self, this is what I reach for.

Elemis Marine Cream |  Elemis probably has my favorite moisturizer with SPF. Most moisturizers with SPF make my skin feel extra oily and inevitably leaves to build-up but not Elemis. They have their SPF formulas mastered!

Kate Somerville Eye Cream |  Kate Somerville is another brand I really love and have been using for years. I’ve been to their salon in LA, and when it comes to attention to detail – they really have it down. They have many eye creams I love, but this is one I’ve been using lately and it’s fabulous.

Dr. Brandt Eye Cream |  My mom actually started using this brand first and I’ve slowly introduced some of their products myself. They have a great line of retinol products, and this eye cream is really lightweight and a go-to of mine for daytime.

Dermalogica Eye Cream |  I’ve used Dermalogica products since I discovered it in my dermatologist’s office in high school. It’s a great product for sensitive skin and I’ve even gotten a girlfriend of mine addicted as well! I love this eye cream for daytime, and if you need a good exfoliator, this one is excellent and will last you forever.

Tan Luxe | You guys… this is the real deal! I’ve mentioned this product before here, but if you’re self-tanner obsessed (I have a full product breakdown here), these drops are incredible. I add 2-3 drops to my moisturizer a few times a week and it keeps a light tan on my face that helps me look alive. I love it. Complete addict and now I want the body drops!

True Botanicals Vitamin C Booster |  When I need some brightening, I’ll mix a little bit of this powder with my serum.  It stimulates collagen and is also Goop-approved, so you know it’s the good stuff!

Facial Oils | I tried face oils for the first time about five years ago, and I kept getting compliments on my skin. Cut to today and I don’t know how I could live without them!  A few I’m using now are Boscia and Marula.

Korres Serum | I recently starting use this rose and vitamin C serum and I love using it at night. It feels luxe, moisturizing and brightens my skin to this dewy magical goodness.

Moroccan Oil |  You’ve heard me talk about their products recently hereThis is the first oil I used in my damp hair, and while I’ve tried others, it’s always my favorite. I also happen to be straight up addicted to the scent of Moroccan Oil products. Even Christian is obsessed!

True Botanicals Body Oil |  After the facial oil comes the body oil. If you want a dewy glow, skip the lotion and just use oil! This one is delish!

Bondi Sands | I just discovered this brand this year, and I love their tanning products! I’ve shared more about them here, but I like to use this lotion the day after I’ve applied self-tanner to help maintain my color.

Herbivore |  I love every product of Herbivore‘s I’ve ever tried, specifically their body oil. The Jasmine smells so good, I can smell it all day after using it!

Mary Kay Cityscape Dry Oil Mist | The Cityscape collection are my favorite products from Mary Kay I’ve ever tried. I love the scent, and if you’re new to body oils a dry oil like this is a great place to start.

  1. Great post! This is a great list of your products. I’ve never tried any but I hear good things from them. I’m curious to what your thoughts are on Drunk Elephant products!


  2. I adore Philosophy’s Cream and Mint body hydrating mist. Amazing smell and even better days afterward when you smell the clothes you were wearing when you applied it. Enjoyed the visit through your medicine cabinet 🙂
