Project 10 Pan - Update # 3

I'm super excited to make this post! I feel like I'm starting to see some serious progress and I'm almost done. I just might be able to finish this before the new year. Here is where I was at just a couple of weeks ago.

Below are the items that I finished before my last update.
MACBlush in Tenderling; ClarinsWater Comfort One-Step Cleanser with Peach Essential Water; MACMatchMaster foundation in 1.0; MaybellineInstant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Concealer in Fair 110

I was so happy to finish this primer. I wasn't terrible, but it wasn't fantastic either. I can now move on to another primer to finish. I will not repurchase this as I have other primers I like better.

This powder was a nightmare. I absolutely hated it. When it started cracking and falling apart, I just tossed the excess broken bits in the garbage. I have no regrets. I will definitely not repurchase this.

Now for the products that I still need to work on. This eyeliner is almost done and I can't wait to move on. It just keeps getting smaller. The beige eyeshadow's pan is starting to come through more and more. I'm so bored of this eyeshadow and am definitely ready to move on. Hurry up and finish!

This body wash was just about the V the last time I updated. Now it's just above the A. I've only been using a small drop in my loofa because this stuff foams up like crazy. I'm going to start using this without the loofa to hopefully use it up quicker.

So this body lotion is actually just below the words "hand and body cream" but you can't really tell by this picture due to the residue. I've been keeping it at the side of my bed and it's helped me to use it more frequently.

And that's it. How are your project pans going?

Project Pan: Fourteenth Product Completed: Natural Instincts Color Treat Conditioner

Hello! This morning I finished my fourteenth product towards my project pan. While taking a shower this morning I finished another conditioner. Normally it takes me forever for me to finish a conditioner. The conditioner I finished was the Natural Instincts Color Treat. This is always the conditioner I use the first few times I wash my hair when I first dye it. The colour lasts and my hair feels nice and soft. It also smells nice :)

The only problem with this conditioner is you can't buy it separately! It comes in the pack with the dye (when I've been brave enough to do it myself). I would repurchase this again if it was sold separately otherwise I'll just have to wait until I dye my hair again. Luckily I do still have another one :)

Project Pan: Thirteenth Product Completed: Bikini Zone Anti-Bumps Shave Gel

Good morning! Today I finished my thirteenth product towards my project pan. I finished my Bikini Zone Anti-Bumps Shave Gel. I seem to be finished a lot of bath products this time around for project pan. This product was a decent shaving gel but I don't necessarily agree that it helped or prevented bumps or irritation more so than any other shaving gel. Personally I prefer a cream.

This product was very inexpensive and convenient to find, however I don't think I would repurchase this again. It really wasn't anything special. If you're just looking for a cheap, basic shave gel this is fine but it's just not right for me.

Project Pan: Eleventh and Twelfth Product Completed: Head and Shoulders Smooth and Silky Shampoo and Conditioner

Good evening everyone. I'm not sure how I managed this but I completed both my eleventh and twelfth product towards my project pan. I finished a shampoo and conditioner from the same set!! I know! What are the odds? The products I finished were the Head and Shoulders Smooth and Silky Shampoo and the Head and Shoulders Smooth and Silky Conditioner.

Shampoo: I liked the smell of this shampoo and the way it lathers in the shower. I gets rid of all the grit from my hair products and still gets rid of my dandruff. It leaves my hair soft all for a great price!

Conditioner: Again, this smelled nice and spread well in my thick hair. Every time I go to the hairdressers I get my hair thinned out. So to have a product that actually glides through it when it's thick from growing back  I'm happy. This did make my hair a bit smoother and it helped to detangle. This was also reasonably priced.

Would I purchase these again? Probably not. Only because I like trying out new shampoos and conditioners all the time.

Project Pan: Ninth Product Completed: Zeno Hot Spot Blemish Clearing Device

I seem to be on a roll. Last night I tried to use my Zeno Hot Spot Blemish Clearing Device only to find out that I had already completely used it up. You're probably thinking "How did you not know it was done?". Well that's because it's a device and not a cream or lotion. You only get 80 uses out of it, so it's hard to keep track. I was pretty disappointed to see this go as it was quite expensive. It's regular price is $50, but I got it for $39.99 (still not cheap!). This product claims to use heat to kill bacteria that causes blemishes and yet still be gentle on the skin. It only claims to work on break outs and not cystic acne, so be weary.

I'm not sure if it's all in my head but I feel like this helped to reduce my pimples caused by every woman's favourite time of the month. I felt it reduced healing time. When using this product be sure you follow the instructions that indicate only using it every 3 hours. I made the mistake of trying to do one treatment right after I had just finished and I had a mark for a while. Do I think this is a miracle product? No. Would I buy this again? Probably. Mostly because I've never found anything else to help reduce my time of the month break-outs quite the same.

Project Pan: Eighth Product Completed: Olay Silk Whimsy Moisturizing Body Wash

Last night I took a shower and finished my eighth product. The product I finished was the Olay Silk Wimsy Moisturizing Body Wash. It has a light floral scent (rose) that made me feel super feminine. I actually like to top this body wash with my Chanel Chance Eau Tendre eau de toilette. Not only was is a good moisturizing cleanser, it was great for shaving and as a bubble bath.

I like to use this body wash in the winter as it is super hydrating. We can thank the almond oil extract (rich in Vitamin E) for that. In the summer I prefer the shower gel (with the same scent) just because I find it fresher. I would definitely repurchase this product again.

Second Product Completed: PurMinerals 4-in-1 Mineral Makeup Foundation with SPF 15

Great news! I finished my second product for project pan! The product I finished was the PurMinerals 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup Foundation with SPF 15. This is something I use if I'm in a hurry and just want a clear complexion. It's great for building coverage, all you have to do if change the brush you use, and you can completely change the coverage you get! I love using this product with a concealer brush for any breakouts. It covers them fantastic. The only problem I have with this product is when I haven't exfoliated in a while. I find when I have a lot of dead skin this product looks very powdery and cakey.

This product is vegan friendly, gluten free, and paraben free. It has vitamin E and organic shea butter, combined with SPF 15 all tied up in one great product. 

I will re-purchased this product again mostly because there really isn't anything too similar to it on the market. I like that it is a pressed mineral powder that I can control the coverage of. There's nothing worse than loose powder flying all over the room. I use the colour Porcelain through-out the year.

The Goal

Hello Everyone!

I am starting a Project 10 Pan. Why am I doing this? Well for one thing I have way too many products that I never get around to using and/ or finishing. Added to that I need to save some money and not blow it all on beauty products.

I have tried to complete a Project Pan at the beginning of the year and failed. Why? It took too long. *shrugs* My rules were a lot more complicated. Not only was I not allowed to buy a new product of the same type until I finished all of them in my collection, BUT I couldn't buy anything until I finished SPECIFIC things on my list. I had set aside 10 products that I wanted to finish first, which wasn't very realistic considering one of them was an eye shadow quad (which takes FOREVER to finish).

So rather than just give it up all together I'm going to give it another go :)

I am going to give a review on products once I've finished them to decide whether or not I would repurchase them again in the future and also to give you some insight as to whether you should.

I will post any time I purchase or I am given a new product (even if it's only cotton pads).

If you have any questions along the way please comment and let me know!

One of the ways I'm going to try and finish more products is by remembering to use products that I often  neglect to use. Everyone has their "thing" here are mine:

Skincare wise I always neglect my body! I have so many creams, etc. and I rarely use them! I'm going to change that this month.
Make-up wise I will often neglect to use setting spray. I swear by the stuff but I am in too much of a rush in the morning to consider that a necessity. Maybe I will put a sticky note on my vanity to remind myself to do it.

What's one product you often  neglect to use?
