    Has anybody heard of, or participated in Project 10 Pan? It's basically where you realise you have way too many beauty products, and try to use up 10 of your products before purchasing anything new... I am trying it out for skincare and haircare, and am trying out Project 5 Pan for makeup. (because I don't think I would use up 10 makeup products before the urge to buy something new kicked in!)

    I am in my first month, and this is my tally so far:

    EDIT: Finished 17/06/2010

    02: NARS Lipgloss in Sweet Revenge

    Ok I'm in! Today I went through all my makeup and skincare, and threw away anything I knew I wasn't going to use & was still left with a ridiculous amount. I want to finish off things that are half gone and in the end, control my impulsive spending and have a much smaller makeup bag with only things I love in.

    The only things that really would probably need replacing are mascara & basic skincare - I hope that I'll be finished by the time I would switch to summer stuff anyway but I'll only replace those things until all of this is done & my ideal is that I'm finished by the time Chanel summer collection comes out :D I picked out the items I thought I would finish to encourage me to actually use them - some of them are nearly done, some not so much.

    Skincare
    Natura Bisse Sensitive Complex
    Biologique Recherche Creme Dermopurifante
    Space NK Body Scrub
    Korres Body Butter

    Makeup
    Becca Blossom Lip + Cheek Creme
    By Terry Tinted Moisturiser
    By Terry Concealer
    Becca Stick Foundation
    Becca Tinted Moisturiser
    Chantecaille Opal Eyeshadow
    Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof Eyeliner
    By Terry Lip Expert in Boogie Sheer
    Lipstick Queen 15 Mins Gloss in 1 Minute

    Hair
    Neil George Shampoo
    John Frieda Shampoo
    Aveda Smooth Infusion Shampoo


    easy :unsure:

    I had no idea there was a name for this!! I've been downsizing for months and usually put things in order of 10s (-10 = +1)
    I haven't put things in categories though (makeup, skincare, hair products, etc). I think I have little enough (with room still to use up/get rid of more) that I'll keep with what I'm doing. I will say I feel tons better for doing this. Less guilt with shopping, more space, simplicity, and my skin has actually been better for putting less on it :smile:

    I've only finished one shampoo thus far, even when it seems like things are nearly done it takes forever!

    Finished another couple of things, but unfortunately they're probably the easiest to finish :rolleyes: I'm finding it really hard to continue using a few things on my list because I don't really like them all that much anymore...it seems pointless to use them, but then I committed to finishing things so I don't want to just throw them away. We'll see how it goes I guess.
