Because why not?

Project Pan 2014 Update #4

31 October 2014
I really enjoyed this Project Pan, not that I really stuck with it when it came to no buying, the Memebox addiction is a real thing, there are many women dealing with it, although it's been almost a month since I ordered my last box so I'm doing quite well at the moment.

I reached my 50 products a little over a week ago and the process has left me with a much more organised beauty stash which is ultimately what I wanted.

 


#40 John Frieda Full Repair Full Body Shampoo - I didn't mind this range but I believe it has been discontinued or the name has been changed because I haven't seen it in stores for ages and these were on sale when I bought them. Not the best but certainly not the worst, if I wasn't using Kerastase I would likely buy something else from the JF line.
Repurchase? No.

#41 John Frieda Full Repair Full Body Conditioner - This was my favourite of the duo but definitely wasn't quite hydrating enough.
Repurchase? No.

#42 Eleven Australia Miracle Hair Treatment (review) - This stuff is nice but I had to use so much of it to see results, it was kind of wasted on me but my God the scent! Amazing, I wan't coconut scented everything.
Repurchase? Probably not.


#43 Yankee Candle Bahama Breeze - These are damn good candles, the scent projection on these surpassed my expectations, my only issue with the range is that there aren't a whole lot of scents that I like enough to want to burn them in my room but I grabbed a few melts to try when I purchased this one. Problem with the candle it's self; as you can see the wick burns out before the wax is consumed by the heat so I feel like a lot of the wax will be wasted, might scoop it out and use it as a wax melt..
Repurchase? Yes for sure.

#44 Daiso Puff and Sponge Detergent - Good stuff but I always feel like I'm getting over it, also it hides a soapy residue really well. All the people I talk to about it doesn't believe me and if I had a dollar for every time someone said 'I never see a soapy residue' I'd be a fucking millionaire, then I scrub up the bristles and show them what I mean. Eat your words. In the end it does clean really well though so I'll continue to sit on my fence.
Repurchase? I dunno, I have about 4 backups so for now no.

#45 BE Nail Polish Remover - This removes nail polish, much like all the other nail polish removers.
Repurchase? Probably.

#46 Manicare Glam Eyes Miranda Lashes - Liked these more when they were cut in half for demi's.
Repurchase? Not likely, I have another pair in my stash and I can get lashes of the same quality at a much cheaper price from trade stores.


#47 Dirty Works Glow Girl Buttery Salt Scrub (review) - Ugh. Take it away!
Repurchase? No.

#48 Nivea Men Shaving Gel - This reminded me why I love shaving gels. My stash of body washes reminded me why I stopped buying shaving gel.
Repurchase? Yes, once I get through the 1,746 937 body washes that I have stashed away, I can't justify buying a foaming product when I already have a million.

#49 Schick Hydro 5 Refills - Best razors ever.
Repurchase? Yes, yes, yes.


#50 Clearasil Daily Clear Vitamins & Extracts Daily Wash - This was nice, even better when used twice for a double cleanse but was a little too drying for me.
Repurchase? No, I have a backup I think.. Unless I gave it away.

#51 Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Pore Scrub (review) - Hated this, used it as a hand scrub.
Repurchase? Never.

#52 Lush Ultrabland (review) - I have concluded that I don't like this product, it works and all that jazz but it's too much trouble.
Repurchase? No.

#53 Clinique Even Better Eyes Dark Circle Corrector (review) - Don't waste your money.
Repurchase? No.

I'm going to stop with the counting of products because I've reached and passed my 50, the rest is mostly samples anyway.


Vaseline Ultimate 10 Body Lotion x2 - This was alright, light, not very hydrating. I wouldn't bother.
Repurchase? No.

Dermalogica Multi-Active Toner - Loved this, I think I did actually see a difference using this.
Repurchase? Yes.

La Prairie Cellular Time Release Moisturiser - Broke my skin out so I used it on my decolletage, didn't do a whole lot their either.
Repurchase? *snort* No, no certainly not.

Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel Sensitive - A friend sent me a whole bunch of these, more than a full size jar would contain but i just haven't been able to get in to the routine of using them regularly, it's meant to be great and from what I saw it has the potential for great results if I used it properly but I'm lazy.
Repurchase? I don't think I can.. I believe shipping costs are exorbitant, not that I need to at this point.


QV Cream - My feet loved this!
Repurchase? Yes I would and I've had a full size jar in the past.

Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation - Ugghhhhhhhhhh I hated this and that tiny little samples holds a deceptively large amount of product.
Repurchase? No.

Clarins Moisture Replenishing Lip Balm (review) - Last one! I had a bunch of these and have finally made my way through them, it's a great lip balm if you're curious.
Repurchase? Yes, but I seem to always end up with the samples so I'm not sure that will be necessary.

Easydew Fresh Mild Sun Block - Was a nice little sample for my face, I quite enjoyed it but it definitely wasn't the best that I've tried.
Repurchase? No.

Bioderma Sebium Pore Refiner - I'm a bit pissed off at this product, the directions read like it's a moisturiser but it's just a glorified silicone primer. It's definitely a nice primer but don't be rubbing this shit on your face twice a day.
Repurchase? If I was in the market for a primer I probably would.


Skinvitals Eye Lift Co Q10 + Soy - Not bad, saw a slight improvement in my dark circles but it certainly didn't last very long.
Repurchase? No.

Skinvitals Q-Lift Sheet Mask (review) - I like these, they are totes worth the price.
Repurchase? Yes.

Yes To Blueberries Age Fresh Cleansing Towelettes - Hate these, they stink and they are face wipes.
Repurchase? No.

Crystal Collagen Gold Powder Eye Mask - Saw no results but felt lovely and cooling.
Repurchase? No.

Skinlite Strawberry Yogurt Mask - So nice! The results weren't anything special but it felt great and smelled like dessert.
Repurchase? No, I prefer results over scents in the long run.

Glam Glow Youth Mud (review) - I adore this and came super close to buying a jar this week, I think I will hold off and ask Santa for this.
Repurchase? If Santa won't bring it to me yes!


Diptyque Philosykos - While I technically finished this I did not start it, I was given a bunch of almost empty bottles and a half full by a friend who developed a skin rash, she discovered perfumes were the culprit, I feel so bad for her :( I don't mind this, but I think I might be sensitive to fig leaf scents because if I'm teetering on the edge of a migraine before I wear this I'm guaranteed to go down in a screaming heap, it might be coincidence but I've learnt to be safe rather than sorry.
Repurchase? Since it's not a scent that I can wear every day, no.

Benefit Posit Tint - I fucking hate this stuff, I ruined my makeup countless times trying to make it work for me. I won't miss it.
Repurchase? No way.

True Value Cotton Pads - I think I have 2 or 3 more of these to get through. Patience young Grasshopper.
Repurchase? Jesus no!

Old ratchet broken brow and lash brush - It served well, may it rest in peace.

I've just noticed there are cat hairs in my light box.. she likes to sleep in there. I have to remember to remove the backing sheet.
