I’ve been making a real effort to use up my stash of beauty products recently – I’d love to be a bit more minimalist, and certainly not to have a great big storage box of toiletries taking up space! I’ve gotten on really well (you can see my ridiculous number of empties from last month!), but there’s been a few products that just seem to be endless! I’m not entirely sure there’s not a pixie refilling some of these in the night… Anyway, I thought I’d do another Project 10 Pan to make sure I’m using these as much as I can, and show you which products I’m currently trying out!
So, even though I already did my empties for September, I managed to sneak in a few more use ups in the last week, and I refuse to move what’s effectively rubbish back to college with me! I’m off to Oxford today, so you might have to bear with me for posts for a couple of days while I get myself unpacked and sorted – I’ll be back soon, though!
I had to have this shampoo and conditioner scent as soon as I heard about it – I’m a big Herbal Essences fan, and a big honey fan, and my hair is still very damaged from two-year-old bleach. This couldn’t be more made for me, and I have not been disappointed. I love Bee Strong!
I’m not one for buying particularly fancy or branded shampoo, but I got this bottle of Soap and Glory Glad Hair Day shampoo in my big pink tote bag a couple of Christmases ago, and I’ve only just decided to break into it rather than keep it for ‘special occasions’. I realised that was a bit silly – what special occasion are you going to need to wash your hair on? Before, maybe, but meh. I’m glad I finally started to use this! Continue reading
Just a couple of little additions to my hoard! I helped a very lovely friend rearrange her room a bit over the weekend, and had a really fun time doing so. Unexpectedly, this led to my favourite kind of thank you – Lush things! Continue reading
I used to use nothing but John Frieda’s Brilliant Brunette range when I was about 15, so I was excited when my mum said she had some spares of the shampoo that she didn’t want! I went and bought the matched conditioner so that I could get back into the whole range, and I’ve been using these now for a few weeks (hence the half-empty bottles).
Empties! Hurrah! (Many of these are minis or travel sizes, that’s just how it panned out this month…)
N-Spa Vanilla Crème Brulée Shower Gel, 100ml. This is a really lovely wintery scent, and the gel itself was nice and thick (too thick for the non-bendy bottle!). This was from a little gift set bought before N-Spa’s product redesign, so they don’t make this anymore!
Herbal Essences Beautiful Ends Intensive Mask, 200ml. I’ve featured this a couple of times before – my go-to intensive conditioner, and I’d definitely buy it again if it was on offer.
