SKINCARE PROJECT PAN | Update #2
hey guys it’s sarah and today i have my second update on my skincare project pan so these last few months of the year i am focusing on trying to use up as much skin care as i possibly can i started this project in mid-august and it’s just going to go until the end of 2020.
so i originally picked 10 products to focus on and i wasn’t originally intending on making this a rolling project pan but a few of you guys have really encouraged me to roll things in as i do use things up so i have decided to roll in a few new things and yeah just kind of keep the momentum going so this last month i actually had only nine products in the project and i ended up using two of those things up so i’m gonna be rolling in three new things into the project and we will be back up to ten so why don’t i go ahead and share the exciting updates first kind of kick things off on a high note so i did finish up the trader joe’s ultra hydrating gel moisturizer i was using this as my am moisturizer underneath sunscreen last month i was right about here and this month i completely finished it so that is empty and done glad to be done with this really wasn’t my favorite moisturizer it just wasn’t very hydrating i’m not really a big fan of gel moisturizers as i’ve learned so glad to have used it up and have another product out of my stash and the next thing i used up was the crave beauty beet shield i actually ended up cutting this open it wasn’t actually hard to cut open at all i was able to cut it open with a pair of scissors even though it is pretty hard plastic um so i started out i marked it when i was storing it upside down but i started out about there but it was very hard to tell for sure that’s where we were mid-august approximately the next time i didn’t mark it again because i couldn’t see where the product was but it must have been very low because it only took me a couple weeks to completely finish this off this was my last beat shield that i had in my collection and i’m sad to see it go because this is my all-time favorite holy grail sunscreen it’s fantastic but now i can focus on some of the other sunscreens that are in my collection i’m trying to use up as many sunscreens as i can before the end of the year because i had collected quite a few of them this year so those are the two things i finished and i will be rolling in some new things at the end of this video but first let’s discuss the rest of the updates one not very exciting update is the elf nourishing facial oil i hardly used this this month because i really i just wasn’t feeling like my skin needed an oil and i really prefer not to use products just because they’re in my project pan especially with skin care i don’t really want to go overboard with skin care i’d like to keep my routine as minimal as possible and if i feel like my skin doesn’t need something i’m not going to use it just for the sake of using it up when i know that like this winter when my skin is probably going to be a little bit more dry i’ll have more of a need for this so really i can see myself using this a lot more in november and december when it does get a lot colder and the heat is on that’s usually when my skin starts to get more dehydrated and dry so not much to report here i didn’t even end up marking it again because there wasn’t enough progress showing one thing that i did make good progress on was the ordinary niacinamide treatment i made more progress this month than i did the last month i love this serum it’s so it just it really does something for my skin and so i had no problem using it most nights um a lot i kind of rotate do through different products depending on what my skin is needing so the there aren’t a whole lot of products like this that i use every single night um but i would say i would use this probably three to five nights a week next for another sunscreen this is the bear republic mineral tinted sunscreen with spf 30.
i don’t love this because it is very matte and so i don’t really like it on my face i haven’t been wearing it on my face the way that i have been using it is on my neck just because i’m not always the best at bringing my sunscreen down to my neck and chest i need to get better about that so that’s what i’ve been using this for the previous month i was using this a lot as an eye cream and spf eye cream but now that i finished the crave beat shield i’ve been using a mineral sunscreen the um the first guards up sunscreen all over my face and this also works around my eyes so i haven’t needed to use this as an eye cream but for my neck and chest area this has been my go-to and even only using it for that i still did make some progress um i don’t know this might be one product that doesn’t get finished by the end of the year but at least i’m making some progress so one thing that i rolled in last update was the elf hydrating serum it looks like you’re getting a lot more product than you actually are but that does mean i am making pretty quick progress here i have brought it down about halfway from where it was last time and so i do think that i may be able to have this finished by my november update i do these updates around the 15th of each month so i expect this actually to be done by next time it’s really like a lightweight moisturizer and so i will use it both morning and night underneath my actual moisturizer and i like it because it just gives me a nice little added boost of hydration that i feel like i can always use and it’s really gentle and very simple there’s no like active ingredients in here so it gets along well with other products next is a body skin care product i have the hemps vanilla plum body moisturizer i didn’t i wasn’t as good about using this every time i got out of the shower this month i was actually pretty bad about it but i did use it enough to make some progress still so i’m happy about that next month i really need to get back into using this after every single shower i’m just i’m i always forget and i like start getting dressed and i’m like well i already put pants on so it’s too late now but then i’ll at least like put it on my arms or something i do try to put it on my hands and arms at least before bed as well so yeah i do still think that this will be finished by the end of the year next for a couple of hair care products i have this trader joe’s shea butter and coconut oil hair serum and somehow even though i felt like i used this a good amount i really did not make much visible progress so again this is another thing i’m not really gonna mark this month because it just didn’t really come down far enough to market for a third time but i think the the problem with this is that i use so little of it having short hair i use just like half a pump um but i do i feel like i used it pretty much after every time i washed my hair which is like every other day so yeah slow progress on that um kind of doubting that i’ll have this finished by the end of the year just because we are getting pretty close to the end of the year now and then another hair product that i thought i was going to make more progress on this too the giovanni cherry blossom and rose petals leave-in conditioner i did make a little bit of progress here and it’s getting really close i mean i only have this much left but once again with short hair it’s just i don’t need a whole lot of this kind of a product so i still think i can finish this by the end of the year though just because it is so low so fingers crossed on that those are all the products that i was focusing on last month and again i did finish two of them the trader joe’s moisturizer and the crave beet shield so i am going to be rolling in three new things um the first one is another sunscreen i i’m on a roll with using up sunscreens and so i wanted to go ahead and roll in another one this one i’ve already been using for the past couple weeks ever since i finished the crave one so i’ve already gotten a pretty good ways down with this one but this is the first guards up daily mineral sunscreen with spf 35 i love this sunscreen so much having used it like pretty much every day for the last couple weeks i’m just reminded of how good this is um so i think i’m about halfway down now and i go through sunscreen pretty quickly just because i use a lot of it i do think that this can be done by the end of the year and then another spf product i decided to roll in is the super goop hand screen with spf 40 so this product i really like it pretty much lives in my purse but i’m bad about remembering to apply it and it’s the kind of thing that i like to put on when i’m driving just to make sure that my hands are protected problem is now i’m usually applying hand sanitizer every time i get into and out of my car so it’s kind of like i put this on and i feel like i’m immediately taking it off with hand sanitizer and then i need to reapply it when i get back in my car so it’s kind of tricky but i just i still feel like i need to be using this more to actually get the benefit of having it in my possession but this is a pretty small tube it’s only one fluid ounce and i’m already pretty far down so i do think that i can use this up by the end of the year if i actually use it so and last one is a regular hand cream without spf but this is the andaloo naturals shea butter plus cocoa butter hand cream in the lime blossom scent and i am a hand cream lover i’m always i feel like i always need it literally just now i applied some because my hands were super dry i don’t know why i just have really dry hands you know how some people like my boyfriend always has sweaty hands i’m the opposite my hands are always dry doesn’t matter if it’s 90 degrees outside my hands are just like papery like not necessarily flaky and like crusty or anything but they just feel dry always so gotta have hand cream this is actually a pretty big tube 3.
4 fluid ounces this has been living over there at my desk in this room but honestly i haven’t been spending that much time at my desk lately i kind of move around i’m going to find a place to put this in the apartment where i will use it often because i think as long as i have it in my site i’ll use it multiple times a day i would like to finish this i think i can do it shouldn’t be too hard since i do love using hand cream so that is my skincare project pan update i’m excited to be rolling three new things in i really do feel like i can move a lot of things out of my collection by the end of the year but if you enjoyed this video definitely make sure to give it a thumbs up and i’d love to see you again very soon and hopefully i’ll talk to you in my next video bye you
