Project Pan 69 - 90

If you've been around the blog world for a while, you probably have come across a Project Pan series or two before. (Previous posts can be found here.) For those who don't know what Project Pan is, this is what it is about: basically, you go on a no-buy or low-buy until you use up the things you already have. I'm sure everyone has experienced that point where your bathroom or vanity is overfull of half-empty products, and yet you keep on buying more. The idea behind Project Pan is to (a) finish using the products you already own (or, if you hate them, throw them out!) and (b) not buy products that you already have. So I will be repurchasing things I finish, or buying things that I still need, but no more wasting money on things I already have in my collection. Bonus: who doesn't find empties posts deeply satisfying on some level?

69. Batiste Strength and Shine Dry Shampoo
Will I repurchase? Probably not. This dry shampoo did make my hair look nice and shiny instead of dull, but it didn't have quite the grease-banishing power of the original.

70. Batiste Original Dry Shampoo
Will I repurchase? Yes - I always keep coming back to this done. Does what it needs to with no added frills.

71. Garnier Micellar Water
Will I repurchase? Yes I did, as soon as this one was finished. It's almost exactly as good as my beloved Bioderma one but at a fraction of the price, so yay!

72 + 73. Nivea Light Moisturizing Day Cream
Will I repurchase? Yes  (clearly!) - this is my go-to budget moisturizer and I normally have one at home and in my overnight bag at all times. (Tip: these squeeze tubes normally leave quite a bit of product behind, so when you can't physically squeeze out another drop, cut off the top and scoop the rest out with a foundation brush for a bonus application or two.)

74. Moroccanoil Oil Treatment (sample size)
Will I repurchase? Yes, this  stuff is worth every penny and a teeny drop goes a long way. I actually have a full size version of the Light Oil Treatment and love it dearly, but might try the original next now that I'm no longer a blonde and my hair is longer.

75.  Maybelline Great Lash Mascara
Will I repurchase? Yes, I've been using this one since high school. I picked up a new one recently (my first make-up purchase of the year, pretty good going on the low-buy!).

76. Maybelline The Rocket Mascara
Will I repurchase? Yes, this is my 3rd or 4th tube of this one, but until I start earning again I'll be sticking to the cheaper options.

77. Garnier BB Cream in Light for Oily/Combination Skin
Will I repurchase? Yes, this is a great everyday base product. I hated the original (far, far too oily/greasy) but this one is "just right".

78. Essence Eye Shadow Brush + 79. Essence Smokey Eye Brush
Will I repurchase? No. Getting rid of these because the bristles are stiff and scratchy.

80. Lash Grip Eyelash Adhesive
Will I repurchase? No, I no longer wear false eyelashes often enough to need a full-sized eyelash glue. Throwing this one out because I haven't used it in a year and it's gone squiffy.

81. Wet n Wild H2O Proof Liquid Liner in Black
Will I repurchase? Maybe. Wasn't blown away by this one but for it's price it's not bad.

82. Stila Smudge Stick in Gilded
Will I repurchase? Yes - it's expensive but it's just so gorgeous! The colour is this beautiful metallic golden bronze and it's just perfect swiped along upper lash lines with neutral eyeshadows.

83. Essence Kajal Pencil in White
Will I repurchase? No. Somewhere along the line I went to a lot of fancy dress parties that needed costume makeup and I ended up with not one but two white eye pencils that I'll never use, so I gave one away and am chucking this cheaper one that's just taking up space.

84. Essence Brow Pencil in Blonde
Will I repurchase? Sort of. I repurchased this in Dark Brown when I left my natural colour behind last year. (But now I know I'm not going back to blonde for a long, long time so it's time to chuck this one.)

85. Woolworths Energy Handwash
Will I repurchase? Yes - this is one of my favourite scent lines that Woolies makes.

86. Cutex Nail Polish Remover
Will I repurchase? Yes - this is my favourite polish remover, it gets the job done fast.

87. Lush Flying Fox (sample size)
Will I repurchase? No, although I thought I would based on the description, I didn't really enjoy this scent.

88. Lush Ultrabland (sample size)
Will I repurchase? Yes - I really enjoyed using this cleanser, especially when followed with a hot face cloth! I'd definitely get the full size product when I can afford it.

89. Lush Angels on Bare Skin (sample size) (not pictured)
Will I repurchase? No - unlike the Ultrabland cleanser which I loved, I did not enjoy using this cleanser. It felt weird and awkward, it smelled weird and it didn't do anything for my skin.

90. Montagne Jeunesse Cucumber Peel-Off Face Masque
Will I repurchase? Yes - this is a good one for cleansing skin that's feeling a little congested. (I normally pick these up on Click's 3-for-2 specials.)
