Project Pan | Makeup Freeze Until 2015

I've seen a ton of YouTubers do their ProjectPan updates lately and I totally want to do one. I have so much stuff sitting around that I'll never finish if I don't consciously think about what I'm using. I have a habit of bouncing around from product to product without any sort of rhyme or reason to it. So, this post is to hold me accountable! They're not any sort of exciting products by any stretch, but they're products that I need OUT of my life (or in some cases, just to use up and repurchase at a later date). I will post some things I intend to finish by January 1, 2015 below. I am also holding myself accountable not to purchase anything new until 2015 (excluding subscription boxes). Except that Ulta is having double points, and that's a problem... STAY STRONG. STAY STRONG. My birthday is in December, and Christmas is just a week or so later, so I don't have long to hold on.

I'll be sure to tell you how used they are, and how much I have left to go, and I'll post an update in November to show the difference.

 It's a 10 Miracle Leave in Product
I should have put this in my September favorites. It's fantastic. I love it to pieces. I want the full size (this is a sample that was given to me with purchase), but I need to finish the sample. It's lasted me a long time and as you can see by the mark (ignore the product sloshing around, I had to tilt it to get a picture of the mark), I've still got a good ways to go. Hopefully I finish this by 2015! I will definitely repurchase. It makes my hair feel very soft and healthy.

Avon Vanilla Moisturizing Shower Gel
There's nothing wrong with this shower gel. It smells good and has a nice lather. I just prefer my Philosophy body washes. I have two of those to get through, and I've promised myself I have to use this Avon one first. I didn't start consistently using it for awhile, so as you can see, there's only about 1/4 of it gone. But I do plan on using it consistently so I can move it out.

Neutrogena Moisture Smooth Color Stick: Juicy Peach
This was a hand-me-down from a friend of mine (who was very adamant to tell me she had NO DISEASES!) who had too many of the Neutrogena lipsticks, and she said she didn't reach for these very often. I think the peach is a pretty nude color for work. I'll definitely throw it into the mix much more often. I haven't tried this enough to give it much of a review or have much of an opinion on it, but I'll be sure to do that soon.

Aerie Botanicals Moisturizing Body Lotion: Coconut & Vanilla Bean
Love me some Vanilla smells. This is pretty much the entire bottle I was given as a gift with purchase, and I know it's probably not really realistic to say I'll finish it. But I want to put a good dent in it, at least. It's a great body lotion and it smells pretty good.

Carmex Moisture Plus Ultra Hydrating Lip Balm
If I can never receive another Carmex product in my existence, I will be happy. It's semi-effective, don't get me wrong, but the goop and the taste just turns me off. Even this seemingly much better application method is gross as all hell. As you can see, I don't have a lot left, but I will be more than happy to say goodbye to this. I have a CO Bigelow Lip Balm I want to start using, and this is standing in the way.

Suave Professional Volumizing Conditioner
This does nothing for my hair. It's ridiculous. I bought it hoping it would, but it doesn't do squat. I have a whole new bottle in my bathroom cabinet. I'll use that up, too, if I can. It's crazy. That tiny black mark on the side is showing how much I have left (and ignore the dog photobomb). I'm hoping that we'll get rid of this very, very soon.

So that's six products I'm hoping to make some headway on. Perhaps I will allow myself

  1. I really want to do Project Pan, but I have to think about what I want to finish up. Maybe I'll also go through and find some things I want to USE and not necessarily use UP. So you've inspired me. :)
