I know the first day of fall is Thursday but I finished up this project today and thought I would share my finale with you all.
I started this project back in May with 50 products. I had them broken down into categories. Some were foil packets and some were deluxe sized samples. I also included up to 5 perfume samples as bonus items to help me reach 50.
Here is what I have finished since my last update in August.
Smashbox photofinish primer - I don't like this. You've seen it included in posts before and my thoughts haven't changed. But I still have a ton of samples of this to finish.
Laneige Water Bank Soothing Gel Mask - I don't like sheet masks so I wouldn't buy this.
Ahaha Night Cream - This felt very nice but wasn't enough to tell if the full size would be worth the price.
Dermaclear micro water from Dr. Jart+ - I loved this stuff! It removed makeup and didn't sting my eyes so I didn't need a separate eye makeup remover either. I'd consider purchasing it when I'm in need of a cleansing water again.
Aloe sheet mask - See mask post above:) Happy to say I only have one sheet mask left in my stash after this project.
Argan hair mask - This made my scalp itch. I wonder if it doesn't like argan oil since the other mask did the same thing.
Origins checks and balances - This cleaned okay but I wasn't a big fan of the tingle, especially around my eyes and I'm not going to use a different face wash just for my eyes.
Boscia charcoal cleanser - I loved this stuff! It is definitely on my to buy list once I get through some cleansers.
Parlor volumizing spray - This was okay. I didn't notice that it did anything special.
Tata Harper regenerating cleanser - I don't get the hype around Tata Harper. I wouldn't buy this.
MyChelle Refining Sugar Cleanser - I really love this stuff. My gripe is that it seems to dry out quickly. I might look into the full size packaging and see if I think it would make a difference.
These are the only items I did not finish.
Too Faced lipstick in Naked Dolly - I did make some progress on it.
Bare Minerals Pop of Passion - This is almost done. I hope to finish it this month.
Murad vitamin c peel - I used about 1/3 of this product. I'll continue to use it once a week until it is finished.
Manna lip stain - I never even got to this one.
So, I started the project with 50 products and 5 bonus perfume samples.
I finished 46 of the products and 4 perfume samples for a total of 50 products!!
I'm hoping to finish the two lipsticks I started and the peel in the next few weeks and have those out of my collection as well. My goal going forward is to include 2-5 foil packets in my project use it up each month so I can continue to clear them out.
I had debated a finish 7 by 2017 for the fall/winter. However, a few youtube ladies have posted a Cross 6 off your Christmas List project so I might do that one instead. I'll decide and post it in the next few days or so.
