Project 50 Pan: Taking Stock (blushes)

Inspired by Dee, I’ve decided to take stock of the products that I have squirreled away in my beauty cupboard. I feel that this will help me stay on track with Project 50 Pan, as it’s already been a huge “wtf why” experience just by looking through what I own to decide what to start taking stock with. Nevertheless the decision was made, and the decision was BLUSHES. My weakness (alongside champagne coloured eyeshadows), I just can’t say no to a pretty pink blush.

Step 1: admitting you have a problem.

Project 50 Pan (part 3)

11 – Original & Mineral Fine Intellect Shampoo
12 – The Body Shop Aloe Calming Toner
13 – Wella Enrich Moisturising Treatment
14 – Bloom Vanilla Bean Scented Soap
15 – Haus of Gloi Litchi Milk Tea Pumpkin Butter

I’m plodding along gradually with the products that I’m using up, and I slipped and ‘accidentally’ purchased a few things, so I’m not doing that well with sticking to the plan. Having said that, my spending has slowed down a LOT in regards to beauty products since starting this challenge. So far, so good!

Project 50 Pan (part 2)

06 – Passport Tahiti Moana Body Wash
07 – Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer (I would repurchase this, but I have other moisturisers to use up first before I buy any more)
08 – Flourish Perfume Oil in Sugar (I will definitely be repurchasing this after P50P)
09 – Kosmea Organic Rose Mist
10 – Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant (One of my holy grail skin care items, if I didn’t have another of these in my cupboard ready to be used I would have repurchased and not included it in this tally)

I am busting through these empties like there is no tomorrow… Though having said that, I feel like I might be hitting a dry spell over the next month or so. We’ll see.

Project 50 Pan

So far, so good! I’ve already managed to finish up –

01 – Bath + Body Works Vanilla Bean Noel Anti-Bac Foaming Hand Soap
02Unico Hair Serum
03 – The Face Shop Real Nature Kelp Mask
04Stila Convertible Colour in Gerbera (I have a back-up of this in my cupboard)
05 – evo Main Prescription Protein Treatment (I would repurchase this, but I have a few other hair treatments sitting in my cupboard waiting to be used up first)

So far I have resisted the urge to buy any unnecessary beauty products, though my favourite foundation is running out so I may have to repurchase a bottle of that soon. How is everyone else going with their Project Pans?

Empties/Haul – 6 Out & 3 In

Out: Givenchy Photo Perfexion Foundation in Perfect Ivory, Philosophy The Supernatural Blotting Papers, Kosmea Certified Organic Rose Hip Oil, Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Perfume, Glasshouse Galapagos Soap, Bath + Body Works Exotic Coconut Body Lotion.

In: Perfumeria Gal Lip Balm in Red Currant, Inglot Lipstick in #106 & Inglot Lipstick in #105.

It is now 2012 and I am determined to complete a Project 50 Pan this year. I will be limiting my purchasing of new products and attempting to only buy products that are replacing holy grail items when they run out. I’m not sure how successful I will be, but I feel like this is something that I’m really determined to do, so here’s hoping I do well!
