Project 100 Pan: Empties 71-80

More empties! I've been powering through samples while I've been in Europe, but unfortunately I've been buying a lot too. How can I not - so many new products to try! But I do feel proud of the fact I'm actually using products up these days, instead of using 2/3 of a bottle then leaving it to rot away in the corner.

71. Moroccanoil Clarifying shampoo* - I love how a tiny amount of this shampoo goes a long way. It works pretty well for my hair, but it's not HG status like the Moroccanoil Hydrating conditioner.

72. John Frieda Full Repair Full Body Shampoo - I really liked this shampoo, and the large sample size is really handy. No itchiness, no overdrying, and my hair stays clean for a couple days afterwards.

73. Hydro-Minerale Aquatic Spa Therapy Lemongrass Moisture Lotion - Pretty good for a hotel moisturiser - I used this to shave my legs in the shower. I've found that to be a pretty good use of moisturisers that aren't quite rich enough.

74. Kosmea Radiance 24/7 Youth Boost - This is supposed to be rose hip oil on steroids, with a host of extra antioxidants - my skin isn't particularly mature, so I didn't find it significantly better than the pure rose hip oil. I might give it another go in a few years.

75. Ralph Lauren Ralph Shower Gel - From my first ever perfume gift pack, this tube is absolutely ancient. I was never a fan of the perfume so I've had this stashed away forever, but I can say that the scent hasn't really changed after about 13 years of storage. Yep, 13 years. That's how long I hold onto half-used beauty products for.

76. L'Oreal Elvive Nutri-Gloss shampoo - This is a little too mild for my hair. Otherwise, no complaints.

77. Vice & Velvet Siren Body Polish - My least favourite of the Vice & Velvet products I've tried so far I just don't need to exfoliate my body much, so it feels like a lot of work for nothing. The scent is intoxicatingly gorgeous though.

78. Goldwell Rich Repair Shampoo (sample) - I love this shampoo! It smells like caramel and washes effectively without being drying.

79. The Organic Skin Co Freshness Juniper Berry Face Wash - This is very gentle but still effective.

80. Cure Natural Aqua Gel (sample) - I purchased a couple of sachets of this off eBay to see what the fuss was about - for my skin, it's good, but not worth the massive markup compared to other peeling gels in my opinion.

There we go, 4/5 of my Project 100 Pan is over!

  3. Oh no!! Project pan almost over. I have particularly enjoyed these posts--but I love all your posts. I am a recently retired lady librarian and you have made me want to go back to school to get a new degree in chemistry or physics! I also mentioned the pole dancing to my husband but he suggests I sticking to yoga and running. (But he's not the Boss of Me!)
