Project 50 Pan: The End Result!

FINALLY my challenge has come to an end. Not gonna lie, it didn't go exactly to plan. If you read my update post you'll know I extended the challenge. Rather than 50 empties in 50 days (which believe me is SO hard) I decided to give 50 empties in 75 days a go! I managed to get 54 empties together in the time allotted! Although I didn't manage to complete the challenge in the 50 days, I'm still really glad I managed to use up the amount of products I wanted to clear from my collection. In the end it started to become tedious as collecting all this rubbish for 75 days was an absolute terror, I had a ceremonial 'throw out' just after I took the photos. There's actually something pretty enlightening about throwing all this junk out, finally it's out of the way and out of my collection!

I haven't written the names of the products, purely because I'm sure you can tell what most are from the pictures. However, I did compile a list of 'products I would repurchase' purely so that you can see what I've been enjoying using!

Products I would repurchase:
Batiste 'Blush' Dry Shampoo
Daniel Galvin Jr Hangover Hair Shampoo
Lush Rockstar Soap
Nivea Creme Soft Shower Cream
Nivea Hydrocare Lipabalm
Maybelline 'Falsies' Mascara
Natural Collection Lash Length Mascara
Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer

If any of you are thinking about setting yourself a Project Pan challenge I'd definitely recommend doing it, it's surprising how much you can clear out in such a short space of time if you really make the effort to. It really stops you from spending too as you come to realise you own similar products that you perhaps forgot about, in my case about 25 moisturisers and face powders! Possibly the only downside is having to collect heaps of (what is essentially) rubbish! I'm definitely up for trying lots more challenges from now on, I'm thinking a spending ban is definitely on the cards now!

If you have any to suggestions do tell!


  1. Oh wow! Well done!! I definitely need to try something like this, I have sooo many products that I forget about or that are similar to others. Can't remember the last time I used something up. I'm also thinking about doing a spending ban too! But being really strict on myself this time as last time it didn't go so well haha.


  2. whoa you did well to use up all these products in 75 days, it would honestly take me like over a year-hehe!xx

  3. Well done for finishing so many products! That must have taken you ages, or it would have taken me a while anyway :)xo

  4. I need to do this! I'm inspired to have a go and try and cut down on all the stuff I have. Bet it was so satisfying!
