A few days ago I had a conversation with Lindsey (who blogs at Sustainably Savvy about green beauty and her zero waste journey) about the “right amount” of products to include into a Beauty Empties video.
I mean, you basically need to get people interested in you talking about trash, that is hard work!
On top of that you don´t want to show too many products – I mean, I love watching empties, but if I see the video is an hour long, I will never click on it – but you don´t want to show too little product either. If all you have is an empty bag of cotton pads and a shower gel, you don´t really need to get started.
Not that I show my cotton pad bags or tooth paste, I try to stick to “true” beauty products, whatever that may mean. For me it is skincare, makeup and occasionally hair and body care, but no personal care items.
But back to topic: How many products are optimal? We agreed on ten.
Huge spoiler here, I did not manage to stick to just ten products. I feature 14 in my video, but somehow still managed to keep it around the five minute mark.
You do have five minute to spare to listen to me talk trash, don´t you? If the answer is yes, I recommend you watch over on the You Tube website. There are even German subtitles, in case you prefer that language!
