[PROJECT PAN 30] by M: #3 SO CLOSE to finishing

Another month of keeping myself from beauty products hasn't been as hard as I thought. I guess it helps a lot that I knew Courtney was bringing me back some goodies. It seems like this post has a lot of hair products.

7.5 IOPE Moisture Intense Softener (Deluxe Sample)
  • I finally finished this deluxe sample kit. This softener is amazing. Basically it's a thicker toner used in place of a serum. I found that my moisturisers absorbed so much better using this underneath.
  • Repurchase? Already have the full size

16. Clear Total Nourishing Care Shampoo 
  • My hair was looking a little lifeless and need a little pick-me up so I wanted to start with my scalp. Surprisingly a nice product and left my hair smelling so clean. 
  • Repurchase? Yes

17. Clear Total Nourishing Care Conditioner
  • Worked great with the shampoo and was a nice light finish.
  • Repurchase? Yes

18. Toni&Guy Volume Shampoo
  • This set took me so long to finish. So it sat in my shower for months before I forced myself to use them up. It wasn't bad but it wasn't great either. I have had better volumising shampoos. The scent was also a little weird. Quite chemically but not the nice salon kind.
  • Repurchase? No

19. Toni&Guy Volume Conditioner
  • I hated the pump on this conditioner. It would dispense a very thin strip of product so I needed about 5-10 pumps before I had enough to use.
  • Repurchase? No

20. Good Puff
  • Another cotton puff from Daiso. It was ok. Not as soft as I'd like it.
  • Repurchase? No

21. Rimmel Hide the Blemish Concealer
  • This product isn't completely finished, there's about 1/2 a centimetre left. But I'm throwing it away because it is quite old and I definitely would not use it on my face because it would break me out. This is a very high coverage concealer that gets cakey very quickly. Yes it will hide your blemish and all its redness. But at the same time emphasis any dryness around the area.
  • Repurchase? No

22. St Ives Apricot Scrub
  • This is probably my 6th bottle of this. I love how my skin feels afterwards. I even use it on my body at times. I get small bumps on my arms and this helps minimise them. 
  • Repurchase? Already have

23. Dickinson's Witch Hazel
  • I understand why this is such a cult favourite. I found the alcohol content a little drying but with the right moisturiser, this is diminished. Definitely a good product to help with acne breakouts.
  • Repurchase? Yes

24. Shiseido the Makeup Powder Compact
  • I'm throwing this away because the casing is broken and the lid doesn't attach to the body any more. Because of this I had already bought another compact and forgot about this one. So the texture of the product has become weird. The powder is now quite solid and can no longer be applied.
  • Repurchase? Already have

25.1 Shiseido Bio-performance Super Eye Contour Cream (Sample)
  • I actually liked this cream. Definitely moisturising but a little oily. Probably not something I would invest in until I am a little older.
  • Repurchase? Not yet

25.2 Aveda Exfoliating Shampoo (Sample)
  • I think I got this during one of the Facebook giveaways. I had not tried any Aveda products before now. Both the shampoo and the condition were oddly runny and had an "organic" scent to them. Not overly strong and it did not linger in the hair. One use is not enough to judge on the actually benefits of using these.
  • Repurchase? No

25.3 Aveda Thickening Conditioner (Sample)
  • See above.
  • Repurchase? No

25.4 Clinicare Micro-Repair Revitalizing Shampoo (Sample)
  • I got this 3 set sample from Pinchme a while ago. I actually quite liked how the shampoo, conditioner and treatment worked together. My hair felt quite silky afterwards. Once again, it is hard to say with only a single use sample.
  • Repurchase? Maybe

25.5 Clinicare Micro-Repair Revitalizing Conditioner (Sample)
  • See above

25.6 Clinicare Micro-Repair Revitalizing Rinse-off Treatment (Not pictured)
  • I threw this out before taking a picture of it. It was in a single use tube which I left in my hair for a couple of minutes.
  • Repurchase? Maybe

25.7 Innisfree It's Real Broccoli Mask
  • I thought this had a weird/bad chemically scent to it which was quite strong. Courtney thought it actually smelt nice. The sheet itself was smaller than what I was used to but it did fit my face really well. The other issue was that the material was quite thin and tore very easily, especially around the eye and mouth area.
  • Repurchase? No

25.8 FaceQ Peony Snow Lotus & Yeast Whitening Mask

  1. Oh interesting products!
    Now I´m following you in GFC & Bloglovin´I hope your follow me back in both!


  2. Mary this is the best damn idea ever. I'm not much of a spending ban person but this looks like something I could actually benefit from, my skin care drawers are literally overflowing, I've had to start putting things in boxes and stacking them. It's a problem.

    I'm going to have to consider doing this, I just don't know if I can limit myself to not buying anything unless it's essential lol!

    1. It's actually been great. I can actually see the bottom of my drawers now. Haha. You should totally do it. Sticking to what is essential has made me realise that I technically don't have to buy things all the time.
