If you’re a skincare addict, you know too well how fast your inventory can accumulate—especially if you’re following a 10-step Korean routine. Bottles of toner, jars of night cream, and packs of sheet masks can easily spill out of your vanity and into random places in your home if you don’t arm yourself with a sensible way to organize them.


Check out some ways to organize your beauty products below:

Make use of your medicine cabinet

If you think about it, this is the perfect place to store your skincare essentials. It’s located right inside the bathroom, so you can start your routine right as you get out of the shower.

Bonus: the vertical arrangement lets you see all your products, so you won’t miss a skincare step again.

Use a dainty tray


Don’t limit yourself to hiding your collection. Gorgeously packaged skincare and toiletries can also serve as decorative pieces for your bedroom or bathroom.

Place them in a pretty tray like those in the above photos and voila—you’ve got a chic way to display your items. (Get similar trays from Firma and Rustans.)

Have a niche custom-built


If you’re in the process of building or renovating a house, have your designer or contractor carve in wall niches in your bathroom or walk-in-closet walls to accommodate your toiletries and skincare stash.

Store sheet masks in a pretty basket

They say sheet masks are a gateway drug—and every skincare junkie is sure to have a collection! Stash your masks in a nice basket so you can easily leaf through them every time your skin needs a pick-me-up.


Another way to organize your masks is to store them in plastic drawers, which will protect your collection from moisture. Get translucent drawers from Muji, so you could keep track of your stock at a glance (P725/drawer and up).

TIP: If you like your sheet masks cold, you can also store them in the fridge! Just make sure to put them in a Ziploc bag so they don’t contaminate your food items and vice versa.

If you travel often, odds are you already own a cosmetics caddy like the one above (also from Muji, P995). Why not use it at home and keep it within easy reach by hanging it on a robe hook or towel rod? Your products will be right where you need them—and you won’t have to pack them up again the next time you go out-of-town!
