Skincare Project Pan, Stash Cleanout: Update 1. VoidedLux.
hey everybody what’s up my name is sarah and welcome to today’s video today’s video i am sharing with you my first update of my skincare project pan so this is the november update if you are watching this not at the time of release and i have uh some some hefty updates for you so initially my skincare project pan was just a motivational tool to use up some of the skin care items that have been sort of sitting half used or staring me right in the face in my skincare collection which the fact that i have a skincare collection is a little bit extreme because why um but i was aiming to work through six core products and not add in any replacements and go through some samples and single use items that will be revolving now when i initially set this goal to get through six core items that have been you know sitting around and i wanted to work through i didn’t realize how fast i was going to go through some of these items now that i had a dead set goal on them so i am going back on my rule of not adding in replacements of those core items but rather adding in replacements of those core items i used two of my six items so what i’m thinking is i’m going to replace those two items for this update and then work on my core six and not replace any items but no promises because clearly that didn’t work out the first time so let’s start off with what i used up i used up this cleansing balm from pharmacy this is the green clean makeup melt away cleansing balm and this was a size designated to a boxy charm now i use this up entirely minus a couple little bits at the bottom and that’s mostly because uh nails i can’t really get into some of the nitty gritty i have to use a scoopula spatula there’s enough in here that i probably could use this tonight so i’m just calling it done and i will use it after i remove some of this makeup this evening but um this item was it was shockingly easy to use now when i introduced this item i explained that i am more of a micellar water gal but this balm was sitting in my shelving not being touched aiming to use up this product i used up this product and i used it up faster than i thought i would i thought this would take me two months but no she done she done done i also want to make a quick note that when using this makeup balm or any makeup balm in general you look like a monster after you like rub everything in and kind of get it off your face it’s like it’s it repels water so you look like an oily sludge sea monster it’s fascinating i feel like i’m a creature on x-files which by the way i have been watching i’m on season two fascinating i’m really into it and i’m not a sci-fi head so also x-files is a great recommendation if you need something to do in this pandemic world we live in the second item that i used up entirely was my it confidence in a cream this is the facial moisturizer that i had about half of a jar and i thought i had half of a jar but i guess i misjudged the depth of the jar because this puppy is now empty this moisturizer is supposed to be like an anti-aging and i’m kind of of the school of thought that all moisturizers really are anti-aging because you’re hydrating your skin to me this product was nice but not necessarily a holy grail i have oily skin so typically a moisturizer is a moisturizer to me there’s some that i like more than others this one was fine i enjoyed it and it is done now now i am kind of happy that these two are out of my collection now in a month because they’re kind of large and like this is very heavy these are just like big space takers like they take up a lot of room in my section of storage for where my skin care is so i’m going to you know rip these apart to try and figure out how to properly recycle i might have to do a little macgyvering to get the plastic pieces out of it but i’m going to do my best to recycle these as properly as possible and they are done those big chunkers they out of here have two more empties but they are in the samples section so i’ll leave them there let’s just continue to talk about my six core items um so these are the remaining four that i have some progress to share with you the next item is this pure lease cleanser this is the blue lotus cleansing milk and i actually really like this um i tried it once or twice before starting the skincare project pan and i’m finding that this product is very gentle and effective and i really enjoy using it i look forward to cleansing my face every night so this start weight was 145 grams and now it is 106 grams so that’s a chunk that’s like 40 grams worth of product if i had to go based on how it feels it feels kind of like we’re about here so maybe a third of the way depending on the taper of the product it is very liquidous um it feels very elusive in the bottle and i can’t tell really through the light like it looks about here not sure but so far my experience is very positive with this i am excited to be done using this even though i enjoy it because i have staring me in the face five other cleansers just right there whether it was gifted or boxy charm so cleansers i’m like i’m ready to like power through wash my sins away next item is the elf super tone and i was shocked disgusted amazed whatever with how much i used of this product i thought because this took me like june july august september four months to use that this was going to be a longer haul product which is another reason i’m adding more core products into here i used more than half of what was remaining so i am projecting that this is going to be done next month based on my usage but i’m amazed just truly when you focus on something you like remember to use it every night and then this happens but i have uh this toner from elf which i really enjoy out of their supers line it is amazing for the price point especially being like six or eight bucks something like that but i also have a second of this product so when i finish it i’m not going to be missing it because i have another to take its place so it’ll be great to get another large vessel out of my stash when i use this elf toner i honestly feel like i’m pulling a fast one on someone because of how much like i love it and how well it works for me i feel like i’m like duping everyone who has spent more than eight dollars on a toner this is great just putting that out there okay so that is number four what else do we got where am i at okay let’s talk about this next product i have a little spreadsheet down here if i’m looking down this is what i what looks like mal and goats but i’m sure it cannot be pronounced that just american it’s a recovery treatment oil now i marked this over here in a white paint marker was full it is now i don’t know how much that is spatially it’s down a little bit i found that because it’s been a little bit warmer than i would think october would be i haven’t really had the need to use an oil and i’m not going to force myself to use a skincare product if i don’t really feel like it’s necessary in the moment but i was using this oil on days where my skin did feel dry for whatever reason i did go to a wedding so my skin has been my skin and my hair are disgusting they’re like dry and broken out but i found that after this wedding and how i stripped my face of 1800 layers of makeup i did need a little bit of you know lovin so the oil came into play there but i’ve been mostly putting this on my neck as some extra hydration for my neck wrinkles and this sensitive area of my body um but one two three this i suspect to be done in about four months this is a longer haul product really depending on the weather and my need because oils aren’t fully in my routine of skin care business but this one smells nice feels nice that’s all i’ve got to say we’re chugging through and i wouldn’t buy something like this honestly if i end up with it i will use it willingly i weighed that also for reference even though i did a visual marking and it was at 86 grams and now it’s at 81.
9 grams so about four grams worth of product which really i should use ounces for that because it is a fluid but who cares who cares we got notches baby and um the last of these six core items is this bad boy her what is it the glow recipe avocado melt retinol sleeping mask i wanted to show you i was like putting my ducks together that’s not the term that’s not the phrase getting my ducks in a row can you see the inside of this jar it’s not really kind of wild like very blobby not what i expected the product to actually look like so this was a face mask that i acquired from boxycharm out of curiosity even though retinol kind of scares me and i used it about four times which is about once a week my face felt a little bit tingly and i did notice the next day my skin and had an interesting texture it was smoother but almost the quality of my skin wasn’t as nice which i know is sort of like retinol your skin gets a little bit ugly before it gets better so i’m going to try and use this about two times a week and see if it does anything more dramatic for me in terms of my skin health or appearance but um this is slow i sort of forgot about it um i did only do it once a week because i was scared but i also forgot in some moments that this was a product i was working on but this was 221 grams and now it is 216.
my eyes are yeah 216. because i got rid of this it confidence in the cream from the rotation because i used it all i’m going to bring in another moisturizer this is the saturday skin waterfall glacier water cream i have two of these this being one of the two i don’t know how that happened um this is a like gel moisturizer as you can tell it’s much more translucent and it’s not as thick which gel moisturizers are pretty good for me having oily skin i don’t need like a thick heavy cream and i’m okay with gel moisturizer so we’re going to adventure into this territory and see how this works for me i suspect it will be a nice light and refreshing hydration and maybe mixed with the oil i could really use these in tandem to achieve a hydrated skin a hydrated skin it is 112 grams this packaging is with product lighter than the it cosmetics and i don’t know if they’re aiming for luxury with that weight but i would much rather have something of this caliber lying around and my other replacement is this product and for no reason other than i would just like to use it up as it’s been open for a while it is the facial radiance pads from first aid beauty i do have that elf toner so i would imagine that these are going to be um you know i’ll do kind of a on and off situation with that but these are single use pads in a jar that are saturated with the first aid beauty toner and i i don’t remember how many i used there are 28 pads in a container i’ve probably used two or three would be my guess but i did weigh this and it is at 83.
9 grams those are the core six let’s get into the single use now okay the last check in i had three single use items that i was introducing and i used all three of them they were the skin iceland hydro cool under eye gels it was a single-use packet i used those around the day of the wedding because my eyes were very exhausted from being awake and stressed i know that i like this product they were great they cooled my under eye reduced the bag loved it warm while i was driving to the venue it was a great experience second was the tony moly vitamin c mask and it was like a minions mask i have a picture that i’m going to insert right here of what it looked like i did take a little bit of notes on these products but i put that i expected the sheet to be smaller actually like the physical sheet to be smaller because it felt like minions was being oriented towards a younger audience or like a more like preteen audience i bought it was on sale at ulta like i said i’ve never really seen the minions movies i don’t really know what they are can someone please tell me because i’m actually curious um but the designs were cutesy like i had the little minions people creatures and flowers and um it felt hydrating and refreshing but i don’t i don’t know if it really did anything stand out i feel like with masks there’s sometimes the illusion of skin care and self-care um especially vitamin c masks kind of felt hydrating my skin felt good it looked fine afterwards that’s my hot take not really beneficial um to you but i used it so and the patchology flash patch hydrating lip gel i wrote it was perfumey but definitely hydrating so i do remember that i use that pretty early on because my lips have been very dry which i don’t even have a lip product on right now because my lips are really dry i’ve just been um lip balming for the most part it kind of hydrated the skin around my lips more than my actual lips moderate hydration on the lips very hydrated on my mustache area so i probably wouldn’t rebuy that but if someone you know gave me patchology lip masks i would absolutely use them why not right guess i’ll just introduce the three single use items that i am going to be introducing for this month because i i think that’s a really good way to get through some of the uh fat stack of samples i have accumulated um and the first is going to be another under eye gel i’m going to be using the bliss holographic under eye mask they’re foil and they’re called i got this and they de-puff and brighten okay sis that’s some aggressive packaging if you will it’s like a kawaii fantasyland i’ve used these before they’re very cute and i’m gonna wear these one day where i am going to take some selfies on instagram for my pals because i don’t think they really do much otherwise that they’ve been loitering rent free in my home and next the next one is a snail gel healthy aging face mask and i wanted to read the back to you snail farmers started noticing the remarkable skin softening effects of handling snails they quickly realized they had stumbled upon something exciting the secretions from snails had a number of important skin care benefits like reading that i’m gonna put it on my face and there’s enough in here for two uses it looks like because i have a pretty small face it’s not singly it’s double use we gonna snail it up boys and lastly is another single use mask uh it’s a cucumber gel mask it’s the extreme detox hydrator peter thomas roth cucumber mask i feel like everyone has seen this or acquired a sample of a peter peter thomas roth product and i cannot recall because i feel like i’ve used this a million times before cannot recall if it did any hydrating or extreme anything detox while also hydrating sign me up that’s my dream mask right there um so we will see and this is a very very tiny sample packet like the level of generosity amongst these two people and all right so we’re getting into samples territory okay so i have two empties i’m gonna start with the empties on my samples because it’s very exciting for me uh the first is this origins plant scription anti-aging power serum and this sample was so tiny that i don’t know if it did anything um but it was definitely hydrating i could just say that it felt like my skin wasn’t tight so maybe that’s what it does it just is a hydrating serum i would think that there’s some other wild benefit but i don’t know because i cannot read the text on this bottle as my eyes are old and i am old but the one i’m most excited for is this one right here this is the glam glow bright eyes under eye cream and i used the whole thing in a month that’s quite amazing to me i thought this was going to take me two months actually because this thing was filled to the gills packed with lotion moisturizer for your under eye and now i said moisturizers are kind of like you know a moisturizer is a moisturizer as a moisturizer same with eye creams if it doesn’t have some sort of like retinol-y resurfacing whatnot in it it’s an eye cream and it hydrates the under eye this i liked though it stuck out to me in my brain like i felt like my eyes were very hydrated every single time i used it like astonishingly more than other eye creams um that’s good for me because i have another mini sample of this and i think after that mini later on down the road i’m going to do a little comparison i might re-buy this and that’s also shocking for me because glam glow is like they’re filled with gimmick they’re gimmick land and i really liked this so that was exciting for me even more shocking than me liking a glam glow product is that one two three of the samples i put in here i didn’t use so like that’s crazy because i’ve been consistently using these products the first of these samples that i didn’t finish this month which again is shocking to me is this tony moly moisture boost cooling algae eye serum now maybe it’s because i used an eye cream and kind of they both fell at the same point in my mind of my skincare routine this was like a hydrating but cooling eye cream which trips me out because if i’m feeling like it’s cooling i feel like it’s tightening and it’s not hydrating but this this was weird and i don’t know how to feel about it hydrating and also cooling another is the hand skin pore cleansing oil i only used about a third of the product this smells so good it smells like a mixture of like citrus and like almost patchouli oh no the way the applicator this reminds me of those um like old-timey men’s aftershave where you have to like do this and you only get a couple drops in your hand of the product it was hard to over supply yourself with product it’s hard to over pour you got just the right amount every time so this is a very generous sample knowing that in a month of relatively inconsistent use i had this in my shower um that this will last me about three months and i really like this product so far i’m not sure if i just enjoy the experience because i like the smell and i like like doing old old-timey men’s aftershave motion but i’m i’m am liking this the final sample that i didn’t use up fully is the lip sleeping mask from lineage this is the one that i do not like the smell of it smells like old dirty cotton candy and i have probably used about half of the product that was remaining when i started this project i could i would suspect that i will use this in a month if i really set my sights on it now i know i only used two samples but i’m going to introduce three because i’m a glutton for pain first being this this is a mini eye cream sample so kicked the glam glow out because i use it all introducing this bad boy this is the belief moisturizing eye balm and it looks kind of like a hybrid gel moisturizer like it it has the consistency of a gel moisturizer but the appearance of a regular moisturizer for the under eye so a mini under eye sample we are going to explore an adventure i have never used this and belief products to me i always mix them up in my mind with philosophy because the branding looks very similar and those are two brands that i like can never remember if i like something from the brand and i also am not attracted to them initially next is a serum this is the bare minerals skin longevity vital power infusion skin mimetic technology okay i have used about like probably four of these samples i consistently will get this bare mineral sample and i will use it like a serum i don’t know what it does and i don’t know if it does anything for me other than just like feel hydrating on the skin but i have another one and this time i’m going to try and observe the benefits i’m going to try and use this serum in mind knowing to look for the benefits not just like a mindless drone doing steps of a skincare routine for no reason but because i was told to and then lastly my last sample if you’re even still here is this sol de janeiro coco cabana cream this is one of those tiny minis this was a gift this year at sephora that you could choose from i did choose it was this and the other one the boom boom cream which i love love love love love love the boom boom cream now if you know anything about soul de genero and their boom boom cream and you’ve ever felt it it feels like a really rich hydrating moisturizer it’s fabulous this scent of their lotion is different it’s very sticky first of all the smell it smells like popcorn buttered popcorn jelly beans which i don’t love and the consistency it’s much more like a water gel as well it’s thinner and not as like opaque of a of a lotion tone you know like it doesn’t look like a moisturizer it looks more like a thinner moisturizer like whipped with water almost but it’s sticky and i don’t know why that like how that kind of passed having a lotion that’s also sticky because there’s nothing worse than putting lotion on your hands because they’re really dry and then they’re sticky it’s still good i could put on my legs before bed and just like roll around in my sheets with shaven legs and it probably will take me a month to use all of this with my inconsistent use because i’m forgetful so far i would say that overall i am impressed with my tenacity to use these skincare products as i have completely used two of the full-size ones and some of these minis so i’m going to try and keep that energy to use up these things that have been loitering in my life and just sitting around and and i will see you in my december update of my skincare project pan and
