October Empties / Project 50 Pan (part 1)

What better way to stop spending money on beauty products than to set myself a challenge NOT TO? Embarking on a Project Pan has always helped me in the past when I’ve wanted to curb my spending habits a bit or try to use up what I already have in my bathroom cupboards, and I’m hoping that it’ll help me again now that I’m trying to save money for our US trip. I’ll be following the same rules as my previous challenges (the only repurchases allowed are when I’ve used up everything I own of one particular item eg: shampoo), and will be checking in every month to let you all know how I’m going. Here is the first batch of empties –

01) Head & Shoulders Shampoo in Apple Fresh – This is Sebastian’s shampoo of choice, but I also use it once a week or so to help keep my hair in good condition. I don’t have dandruff, but I do find that this does a really good job of clarifying my hair. Also it smells really good.

02) Paula’s Choice Hydralight Moisturiser – I’ve been a recurring purchaser of this moisturiser for a couple of years now. I still really love it, but I do feel like my skin might be adapting to my current routine, so I’ve decided to work some Dermalogica back into the mix to see how I go. I think I have one or two of these floating around in my cupboard though, so no doubt I’ll return to it again soon.

03) Lush BIG Shampoo – This is another staple in my beauty cupboard, and I repurchased it as soon as this tub ran out. I use this once a week (usually on the weekend) to deep clean my hair and get rid of the product build up that has accrued over the course of the week. This is another must-repurchase if I run out during the project, but it’s unlikely as these little tubs seem to last forever.

04) Lush Sympathy For The Skin Lotion – I miss this lotion. I finished this up a little while ago, but hadn’t gotten around to tossing the container. I don’t think I’ll be buying a replacement of this anytime soon, purely because I’ve found a much cheaper option in the Jergen’s fragrance free daily moisturiser. I do still really love it though. And I kind of miss it. But NO I will not talk myself into buying another tub, lets move on.
