Project Pan 2018


It’s so satisfying when you finally finish a product that’s just been sitting in your stash collecting dust. I am doing various Project Pans throughout the year to try and use up items in my collection that I would have otherwise looked past. The end goal is to have only items I love. Being a blogger, and just a shopaholic in general, I do buy make up and skincare items that I want to trial so there will be some exceptions.

Last week I compiled a list of my products from my skincare, make up and perfume ranges that I would like to finish this year. For this first Project Pan of 2018, I’ve chosen some of those products in hope that I can hit pan or use up within the first 3 months of this year. I’ll be writing a follow up post in April to see if I’ve managed to achieve this.

Make Up




  • Botanical Hand Cream- this is about half full and I would like to finish it all off.
  • Dirty Works Shimmer Lotion- never used this so it’s currently full.
  • John Frieda Hairspray I don’t typically use hair sprays but this has about a 1/3 left.
  • St Tropez In Shower Gradual Tan got a few of these so want to use one up, it’s currently full.
  • Dove Revive Body Wash I have so many shower gels and body washes from Christmas but I want to use up my previous one’s first. This has never been opened and I want to use it all up before April.
  • Nivea Lip Butter I prefer a stick than a pot so want to use this all up, it’s got a dent in it at the moment but hopefully I can hit pan.
  • Anew Rejuveinate Cleanser- started using this at the weekend, want to finish this.



Only chose 3 perfumes to complete as it would be too unrealistic to use up every fragrance that I want to get rid of by April.

That’s it for my first Project Pan of 2018. I can’t wait to check back in April and see how much of each product I’ve used. It gives you such a sense of achievement too and I would recommend giving it a go. I hope you enjoyed this post. Thanks for reading XOXO.
