Him : Look! I just cleaned out the bathroom.
Me : ARGHHHH!!!!! Did you throw out the empty bottles of shampoo, conditioner and shower gel???!!
Him : YES! They’re empty!!!
Me : ARGHHHHH!!! NOOOOO!!! I need them for my Project 100 Pan!
Him : A what??
Me : UGHHHHH!!!! Just leave my stuff alone!!!!!!
Him : But it was getting mouldy!!!
Me : Don’t throw out any of my stuff again! *gives Hubby the stink eye for ruining my Project 100 Pan and stomps off*
Him : *shakes his head in disbelief at his looney beauty blogger wife*
Anyway, as you may have all gathered, I did a Project 100 Pan last year and I may have cheated and bought products before I finished my project, but I also did well over my 100 empties.
I didn’t manage to keep all my empty and used bottles/jars/tubes – thanks to my housecleaning clutter-phobic other half – but I saved most of them to document my journey. So here’s the first instalment showcasing Empties 1-5…
Paul Mitchell The Detangler Conditioner
FYI, I used this conditioner with the accompanying shampoo but that was chucked in the bin and I wasn’t going to fish it out for photography purposes!
Anyway, I love Paul Mitchell products because a) he’s Scottish like me! and b) it reminds me of my late teenage years when I would save money to splurge on them as a treat for my hair.
The Detangler range didn’t irritate my scalp – that’s why I used it all up – but it failed to deliver in detangling my tresses! I actually felt it was a bit more knotted when I used this. Bizarre huh?
Would I repurchase? No, but I would fork out for another range.
Lancome DreamTone Ultimate Dark Spot Corrector
A lovely hydrating serum with the most gorgeous pink packaging. I actually contemplated in keeping this empty bottle forever because HOARDER!
You can read my more detailed review here.
Would I repurchase? Most definitely maybe!
L’Oreal Paris Revitalift x3 Moisturiser
A fantastic moisturiser from an affordable drugstore range which smelled good and made my dry/sensitive skin feel lovely and smooth.
Would I repurchase? Yes!
Uriage Aquaprecis Moisturising Refreshing Cream Gel
Although I liked the smell of this cream gel and the fact that it absorbed beautifully, it wasn’t moisturising enough for my dry skin even when I added a hydrating serum prior to application. Probably better suited for oily combination skin.
Would I repurchase? Sorry, but no.
Dr Lewinn’s Reversaderm Glycolic Clarifying Cleanser
Oooh, I love this cleanser and was so sad when I used it up. It gives a slightly stinging sensation but it was still gentle enough to exfoliate my skin without causing it to throw a flaky.
More detailed review here.
Would I repurchase? OH YES!
