Happy Thursday my dolls!
I apologize for no post and video on Tuesday, but if you follow me on IG, you’d know I was away for a little vacation and ended up coming back home Tuesday night. I may leave that post for another time, but for now, I am giving you an update on my project pan and also to tell you that to make up for only one post this week, I may have two bonus videos/posts next week, for a total of four posts overall (fingers crossed).
Anyway, as you all know, I like to do project pan updates every quarter, that way I give myself time to use up all the products. So let’s find out how I did this second quarter!
For the full (original) list of products in this year’s project pan, feel free to check out my Project Pan 2019 Intro & Products post.
For first quarter empties, check out my Project Pan — Progress & Empties [Update #1] post.
Let’s start with some add-ons!
These are products I found while going through everything recently that I felt I should try to use up, or at the very least, hit pan on. A few I’ve been using for a while, but will be sure to mark the progress for the liquids as of this post.
- Derma-e Purifying Daily Detox Scrub
- Derma-e Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask
- Formula 10.0.6 So Totally Clean Micellar Water
- NIP + FAB Glycolic Fix Scrub
- Kiss New York Cucumber Soothing Facial Sheet mask
- PÜR Cosmetics X-Faux Lips Plumping Lip Exfoliator
- (Unknown Brand) Sensual Amber Body Spray
- Avon Anew Clinical Absolute Even Spot Correcting Hand Cream
- Delectable Triple Moisture Body Lotion (Coconut & Cream)
- Briogeo Rosarco Milk Reparative Leave-In Conditioning Mask
- Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Matte Powder Bronzer
- Buxom Cosmetics Full-On Lip Polish in Celeste
- Clinique Take the Day Off Makeup Remover
- Essence Pure Nude Highlighter
- Wet n Wild Coloricon Blush in Apricot in the Middle
Have I Hit Pan?
Only one new product, the Trifle Cosmetics Raspberry Ombre Blush palette (middle shade only). I’m only using up the middle shade and then tossing it because I didn’t like the other two shades as much.
The pan is more visible in the other products from before AND I did hit pan on a few more shades of my Ulta Rose Gold palette.
I had hit pan on the shade Breathless (third on bottom row), but this second quarter I ended up hitting pan on Dessert (fourth on bottom row—barely), and on Orchid (sixth on bottom row). I am so close to hitting pan on Hopeless Romantic (third on top row), but shimmers tend to take a while for me.
I also haven’t touched my Melisa Michelle x Ulta palette AT ALL so I will* be moving on from this one and seeing if I can hit pan on a shade or two on that one.
Products I’ve Been Using A Lot
I think it has remained the same for this category since my first update. So for a quick recap, here are all the stuff I’ve been using still:
A few of these have already been emptied and there are also a few that have many a handful of uses left, like the Freeman Banana-Oat Instant Smoothing Mask. I am also making loads of progress on the Simple Light Moisturizer SPF15, last time the marker was at the top of the orange line on the label, as of this post, it’s right above ‘Kind to Skin’, which isn’t much I suppose, but still good progress over all.
The Physician’s Formula Bright Booster Oil was below the word ‘booster’ last update, and as of this post, it’s right in the middle of the bottom red flower (straight down the middle) so I’ve used it so much more than I thought! If I keep this up, I may actually empty it before the year ends!
Some makeup products I’m discarding as you’ll see below, but the other I’m pretty close to emptying completely. Super stoked!
Last time I showed you guys the liquids up close and how much has been used. So for this update, I would like to compare:
Here’s update #1 from March 2019:
And here’s an update on these liquids (minus the Indigo Wild perfume):
As you can see there’s quite a difference in these products! I am so proud of myself!
Since I added other products to this project pan in between updates, I also took a photo of the liquids, so this will be my “marker” and I will be sure to compare them again in my next update! (I have marked the amount of product with sharpie).
Left to right: Clinique Makeup Remover, Formula 10.0.6 Micellar Water, and Body Spray
Since I’ve been using a few, some are almost completely out!
Project Pan Empties
Now we can move on to the EMPTIES! Grab a snack because it’s a lot of products this time! You guys know I like to do videos to go with my posts, but this time I’m only going over the empties in my video:
P.S. video is not in the same order as this post
* * *
First ones are the Montagne Jeunesse 7th Heaven masks.
- Creamy Coconut
- Black Seaweed Peel-Off
- Passion Peel-Off
- Green Tea Peel-Off
I didn’t like the coconut one as much, I felt tingling and burning so I decided to wash it off. This is the second time a coconut mask feels like that, and it baffles me because coconut is supposed to be mild and hydrating.
The Passion Peel-Off I also didn’t like and I can’t remember why, it’s been a while since I’ve used it. I’m so sorry I can’t give more details on this one.
The Green Tea and Black Seaweed were really good, both for cleansing deep down to the pores and peeling them off was so satisfying even though it took much longer to dry fully.
Then I have a few more masks;
Freeman Glacier Water + Pink Peony Gel Cream Mask took forever to finish because it wasn’t a one-time use kind of mask, but it was nice because I was able to leave it overnight and woke up with extremely hydrated and smooth skin! The Kiss NY Cucumber mask was terrible! It literally burned my skin so I took it off immediately.
The Wander Beauty Gold Eye Masks were nice and felt luxe, but they did slip off a bit so I had to stay still. The leftover serum was nice though. The Dr. Dennis Gross Recovery Peel was also nice but I prefer serums with retinol.
I’ve been using these Peter Thomas Roth masks since February, which was an interesting experiment and one I do not recommend because you guys don’t have my skin, and I feel like I got away with it only because they were all gel masks. But anyway, you guys have already seen my full review of all of these so I don’t need to talk about any of them again.
I did also empty the Living Proof T.B.D. Multi-tasking Styler (styling cream) which I thought was nice because I can use it on damp or dry hair AND I could also blow-dry my hair right after with this. It came in handy for the colder months.
The Briogeo Blossom & Bloom took forever to finish because I don’t blow dry my hair and I felt like that’s all it was good for. It did give my hair some volume but it almost felt unnecessary.
The Derma-e Microabrasion Scrub was very rough and harsh so I tried not to use it too often, and I don’t think I would buy the full size.
The makeup products are actually NOT empties but DISCARDS. I’m throwing them out because they no longer apply the way they used to. They have dried out and I don’t want to bother with them anymore.
Lastly, body products! As you can see I went through quite a few lotions, even for me. The Victoria’s Secret Aqua Kiss and the Paris Hilton Body Glistening Lotion were nice, but the VS’s scent is just too strong so I liked the PH one better!
The Delectable Body Lotion was used as a hand cream because it’s small and it fit into my purse/bag. The Avon hand cream is for spot correcting. It’s basically like a sunscreen for your hands. It didn’t do anything for me, I didn’t like.
Last product is actually a roll-on perfume, the Indigo Wild Frankincense & Myrrh, I’m only throwing it away because my husband didn’t like it so I was forced to give it up LOL.
So the total empties for this quarter was 25 products which is insane to me! It’s more than I could ever imagine, so I can only assume next update it will be far less than this!
Even so, I’m so proud of the progress I have been making, both with emptying and using up many products that I had forgotten about. I cannot wait to see what else I end up emptying this next quarter!
Thank you all so much for reading, I love you guys!
Expect to see me a lot next week! ❤
