Project 10 Pan, Round 3

After I got back from New York, I was going to go on a Project 10 Pan.
I kinda failed at that… since I got a few things online.  However, I didn’t open anything new!!!
I got new stuff, but I haven’t opened it yet!!!

Either way, I have a lot of skin care stuff that I’ve collected, mostly from my travels to Korea, London, Guam, and New York!  I really wanted to use those up!!

Neutrogena Body Oil

Pantene Clinicare Leave In Hair Treatment

Bath & Body Works Japanese Cherry Blossom Bubble Bath
(the first of 3 Japanese Cherry Blossom items…
Surprisingly, I don’t really like this scent!)


Bath & Body Works Japanese Cherry Blossom Body Lotion


Bath & Body Works Japanese Cherry Blossom Body Lotion (Travel Size)


Nail Polish Remover

Vaseline

The Face Shop Facial Cleanser


The Face Shop White Tree EX Eye Cream



Bath & Body Works Dancing Waters Body Lotion

It’s all skin care items… so you can see that this wasn’t a really good attempt!
To be fair, I have a HUGE BOX of skin care items that I want to use up!

I’m going to re-start Project 10 Pan once MAC releases it’s In The Groove collection!

PROJECT 20 PAN!!!!

I finished my Project 20 Pan, just in time for my trip to NY!

This was originally a Project 10 Pan, but for some reason I turned it into a 20 pan!  I guess I am so used to a no-buy situation that it really isn’t hard for me.  I like to really enjoy what I’ve got versus trying out whatever is new.  There is a lot less temptation here in Japan since there aren’t THAT many new products all the time!  Yes, I realize that there are a lot of things here that all the rest of the blogger world wants… Obviously, what everyone else has looks a lot nicer!!!

Here we go!
MAC Lipgloss in Pink Grapefruit!
This is from one of Mona‘s blog sales!


Facial Wash!
I have no idea where this from!

This is a mineral eyeshadow that I pressed.
You can barely see the pan, but I wanted to take a picture before the eyeshadow broke apart!
EDM Light Golden Intensive!
Skinfood Banana Yogurt Wash Off Mask!
This is from a swap with Blair!
This was REALLY popular last year in the blog world!
A Molton Brown body lotion from Jamilla!
This smelled SO nice!
Again, I took a picture of this bronzer when I hit pan (before I finished it up) because I knew it would break up!

A Vidal Sassoon hair mask!

A leave-in hair treatment!
This was a really interesting emulsion!
Belo Facial Wash!
This is a gift from Iyah!
L’egere White BB Cream!
This is from one of my first swaps with Diana!
I must be one of the few people who didn’t really like this…
Skinfood Agave Cactus Sun BB Cream
I bought this while I was in Seoul.
This was twice as expensive as their other BB creams, such as the Mushroom BB Cream and the Aloe BB Cream, but I didn’t think it was all that much better!
Bath & Body Works White Tea & Ginger Shower Gel!
This is a gift from Wuzzy!  The smell reminds me a lot of lemon ice tea!
It was nice, but I really should stick to the travel size bottles – this full size bottle took a LONG time to finish!


Lush Angels on Bare Skin
Yes, I’m getting another one of these when I get to NY!

Etude House Precious Mineral Essence
This is that primer that looks like the one from Guerlain.
I got this when I was in Seoul.  I liked the light feeling of it!
Bath & Body Works Moonlight Path Body Lotion
Yes, the travel size is just the right size for me.  I LOVE how this smells!

The Face Shop Oil-Free BB Cream
Anastacia kindly sent this to me!
The words “oil-free” are a bit misleading, though.
It contains no mineral oil, but it does have other oils!
I liked the coverage and the color!


Lioele BB cream
I loved the pump!  And this pink packaging is so cute!
Fair & Lovely Skin Clarity moisturizer
Blair kindly sent this to me, and it’s LOVE!!!
I wish I could get another one!
Yes yes, I’m hauling in NY!!!
Please let me know if you’re on a no-buy / Project whatever pan /etc!
We’re all here to support each other!

ALSO…

I am re-starting my Project 10 Pan!
I actually did pretty well before going to London.

My pressed powder… the only actual “pan” I used up!

Sea Breeze deodorant
(for some reason, I had 4 bottles of deodorant…)

Moisturizer
(one of the many things I have too many of)

Makeup protector spray
(I haven’t seen this in drugstores anymore. Maybe it was discontinued?)

B&BW Hand Sanitizer

EDM Sunlight Kaolin Powder
(again, I have too many powders)

The rules are the same:
Items included in my no-buy/Project 10 pan

  • Eyeshadows/blushes/lipsticks/lipglosses
  • Foundations/bb creams/concealers/finishing powders
  • Shampoo/hair mask/shower gels/body lotions
  • Facial masks
  • Anything that I have more than 1 of

Items not included in my Project 10 Pan/no-buy (I will be buying these since they are necessities)

  • Contact lens related items (because I’m like, um, blind without my contacts)
  • 化粧水 – basically non-alcoholic toner (this is so Japanese of me)
  • Sunscreen (because no one wants skin cancer)
  • Razors (because no one wants to be hairy either!!!)
  • Mascara/Mascara primer /Eyeliner (I religiously throw these away after 2 months, so I know I will use it up anyway)

Wish me luck!

NO BUY!!!!

Yes everyone, I’m going on a no-buy!

I’ve bought so much stuff in Korea/Guam/everywhere else I’ve been lately, and I’ve gotten so much love from my fellow bloggers that it’s time to use stuff up before I buy new things!!

PLUS I’m traveling to London in mid-September, and I KNOW I’ll be hauling like mad at MAC…
(Yes, I know I’ll be breaking my no-buy, but who can not buy on vacation????)

I’m not sure how long I’m going to go on my no-buy, but let’s hope I can use up at least 10 things before I buy something new!

I’m not going to include a few things though…

Items included in my no-buy/Project 10 pan

  • Eyeshadows/blushes/lipsticks/lipglosses
  • Foundations/bb creams/concealers/finishing powders
  • Shampoo/hair mask/shower gels/body lotions
  • Facial masks
  • Anything that I have more than 1 of

Items not included in my Project 10 Pan/no-buy (I will be buying these since they are necessities)
