I've been somewhat struggling to keep my posts regular because I was on Project 10-Pan since March. In the beginning I told myself that I would go and splurge the moment I reach 10. But seeing my 'empty container collection' grow gradually got me challenged. Why not see how far this will take me? Or how far my strength won't fail me. = )
I'm more into skin care than makeup so that's what I focused on with this Project. Without further ado, I present to you my Project 10+ Pan:
Break it down:
- Palmolive Aroma Therapy Talc
- 2 Garnier Whiten & Protect Moisturizing Cream
- 2 Monea Curl Defining Milk
- Vaseline Healthy White lotion (400 ml)
- Foot Treats Foot Scrub
- Virgin Coconut Hair Spa
- Holy Seat
- Human Heart Nature Exfoliating Facial Scrub
- Johnson's Baby Cologne in Tropical Burst
- 2 Bench Alcogels
- Etude House Clear Polish
- Human Heart Nature Hand and Foot Salve
- Vitress Hair Cuticle Coat
- The Face Shop Blush
17 pans! Not bad, eh? I'm so proud of myself that I was able to resist buying more products for 2 months. That's long for me, believe me. Migraine Boy was even prouder. He kept saying that I wouldn't make it. I have to thank him though. He was very supportive all throughout plus he was my Pan Police. I had to present each container to him then he decides if it's good or not. If it's good then I can add that to my collection. If not, I need to make simot a bit more. Plus, he constantly stops me from buying stuff, saying things like "it's not called Project 6-Pan or Project 8-Pan" every time we're at Beauty by SM and I wanted to buy stuff. All the containers presented are empty. That's our definition of 'pan'.
So finally after a long hiatus, I kinda 'splurged' yesterday at Beauty by SM. It's really great that I was able to do this because of the attitude and self-control that I was able to develop. My original budget was P2000 but my bill was only P1000 and not everything there was for my vanity. Some were actually regular essentials such as hand wash, body wash, etc. So, I'm really happy. I kept thinking twice before putting a product in my basket. I told myself that I'll just get them next time. And that next time isn't until after June 20. I've worked out a budget so I can pay off my old debts and at the same time maintain the status of my credit cards. Things are definitely looking up for me!
Watch out for my new product reviews very soon! And I'm looking forward to my next Project 10-Pan too!
How about you? Have you tried going on a makeup/skin care diet lately?
