I have been meaning to throw away my toxic beauty products, it's impressive you could get rid of them, I don't want to feel like my money was wasted, so I just hold onto them. :(

If you're worried about wasting money, just replace the toxic products with non-toxic products once they're used up and you'd have to buy a new one anyway. That being said, if you haven't used a product in a year, chuck it... or at least throw the product away and recycle the container if you can.
