Project 10 Pan, Status: Completed!




Oh hey! You may remember I embarked on my first ever Project Pan last November, with the goal of finishing 10 products by the end of 2016. Well it's now 2017, and I can report that it was a roaring success! I completed nine out of the ten products, only stalling on a MAC lipstick. Doing the Project Pan really made me focus on finishing the allotted products, and I'm super-keen to start a new one for I love feeling organised, goal-driven and successful in my ongoing aim of de-cluttering the house (and my beauty product stash!). I think next time I'll do a Project 20 Pan and give myself three months in which to finish the products (yes, I never tax myself too much, because who needs stress?). Here are the Project 10 Pan products.....



1 The Body Shop Watermelon Lip Balm - STATUS: FINISHED
I'm surprised how fast I used this up as it's usually so hard to get through a whole pot of lip balm! I have one other Born Lippy from The Body Shop currently in use and that's the yummy Strawberry one. I'm still debating which of my shit-ton of balms to include in my next Project Pan, though!

2 Chi Chi Coconut & Lime Perfume - STATUS: FINISHED
I have a whole set of these colourful mini sprays, so I can't wait to make more progress with the rest now that this one is done. The Coconut & Lime was so tropical and delicious, an absolutely lovely scent. Made me sneeze each and every fucking time I spritzed it though, without fail!

3 MAC Amplified Lipstick in Craving - STATUS: UNFINISHED AND MISSING
LOL I actually can't find this lipstick at the moment, so apologies for no progress photo. I'm pretty sure I put it somewhere really special so I'd remember to use it, but have forgotten where that special place is. That's not the reason it's unfinished though; I simply got sick of wearing the same colour lipstick day in, day out. Epic fail, haha.

4 NIP + FAB Glycolic Fix Night Pads Extreme - STATUS: FINISHED
It wasn't hard to finish these, as they are pretty great to use. I'm not gonna lie, I did use a few on my son's feet when I spotted his soles were filthy one day. That black shit came off in an instant, lol. But yeah, I haven't repurchased because I bought another NIP + FAB product in the recent Priceline 'pink dot' sale instead and I don't want to own too many N+F products as I fear I may become addicted.

5 Skin B5 Acne Control Moisturiser* - STATUS: FINISHED & ACCIDENTALLY THROWN OUT
I really enjoyed using this lightweight moisturiser, especially around my jawline and chin where I am susceptible to breakouts. It absorbed quickly and really helped control oils and clear my congestion. However I've got too many other moisturisers to get through so won't get another one. I accidentally threw it out so it didn't make it into the photo! I've reviewed this moisturiser along with the rest of the Skin B5 Acne Control range here.

6 Lush Snow Fairy Shower Gel* - STATUS: FINISHED
I used this up in delicious-smelling bubblebaths to get through it faster as it was past its expiry date (but still totally fine). My son also loves using Snow Fairy in the shower, so we were able to share it.

7 Lush Santa's Belly Shower Jelly* - STATUS: FINISHED
I love the smell of this Christmas release (reviewed here), so it was an absolute pleasure to use. One of the most fun shower products too, because it's all wobbly like jelly yet it does hold its shape well. I love these Lush Jellys, and will definitely be putting either my Whoosh or 93,000 Miles one in my next Project Pan.

8 Lush Happy Hippy Shower Gel - STATUS: FINISHED
One of my favourite Lush shower gels, along with Rose Jam and now the new Christmas release Bubbly (which I reviewed here). So refreshing and zingy, but I'll work my way through all my other shower gels before repurchasing.

9 Oh Deer Sugar Rose & Passionfruit Shower Moose - STATUS: FINISHED
Oh Deer God, this is one of my all-time favourite shower products! My love for the texture, formula and scent of this amazing product knows no bounds. I've blogged about it before here in my September Favourites. I want to try a different ODS Shower Moose next so I'll have to suffer without this rosy delight in my life!

10 Oh Deer Sugar Fruit Tingle Body Scrub - STATUS: FINISHED
This smelled sweet and fantastic but wasn't my favourite formula as I really prefer the gentler Oh Deer Sugar bubbling Soda Pop scrubs. I'm still thrilled to have won a Candy Cane ODS Body Scrub in a recent Instagram giveaway, though, so I'll see how I go with that!

  1. I haven't used many beauty products in the past month apart from the usual things, but my deodorant, moisturiser, and face cleanser all ran out so I have new ones of those :)

    1. Thanks for reading, Michelle! I'm definitely looking to downsize my stash, just need to stop buying things! Haha :)

  2. Look at you go!!! I think I need to set myself a pan challenge, maybe for make up. I smash through so much Skincare and bath and body products, but my make up draw is over flowing!

    So many good looking products on this list though, I really want to try Oh Deer!

    1. Yes, makeup takes so long to get through doesn't it? Oh Deer Sugar is the best, you'd love it! :)

  3. Great stuff! I have been on this same mission. I have placed tons of products in my shower and we're slowly working through them. It's oddly satisfying!

    1. Yes it is so satisfying! I'm loving doing it this way instead of using a bit of this and a bit of that :)

  4. Oh Deer Sugar make absolutely fantastic shower mousses. They are my favourite product of their range. If you want to get another one, the Melon one or the Confetti Fawn is amazing. You have not lived your life until you've tried Confetti Fawn, trust me. If you like sweet, fruity scents than it's your new baby!

  7. I usually race through bath products - given my passion for baths - but in my new place the water is extra foamy or something so the tiniest bit of 'stuff' makes my spa bath too bubbly so I'm going through my bath products far more slowly than expected!

    1. Haha, well at least you won't run out of bath products I guess!

  8. Its so rewarding when you finish a product! I really like the nip and fab wipes. The brand as a whole is really good!

  10. Well done on accomplishing this Project Pan! I don't blame you for getting sick of wearing the same lipstick every day - I would too. That shower mousse looks almost edible!

    I suck at Project Pans (the nail polish one was a #epicfail) but I am hoping to pan at least 1 perfume this year....wish me luck!

    1. LOL, yeah my son loves my shower products too, but I encourage it because I have so much to get through! :)

  13. Oh wow! You've been pretty successful, I'm so happy for you. Sometimes we really need to finish some products so we can try new one, right? :D

  14. I've finished 2 skin care bottles this month.

    Brilliant effort and some of those empties look like things I will just have to try. Especially the Lush.

  18. That Oh Deer Sugar Mousse looks incredible. I had never heard of this kind of challenge before but today I saw how many products I have under my bathroom sink and as part of our saving money plan I am committing to not buying anything further until those products are finished.

    1. It's really satisfying using products up before buying anything else. I wish you luck with your collection!

  19. What a cool project and what a great way to get through your stuff! I never need any encouragement using Lush products and I must have been living under a rock because I've never heard of Oh Deer but those products look fab!

    1. It may be because it's a South Australian product (Oh Deer Sugar), you can order online though and yes their products are to die for!
