Spring Cleaning Project Collab – Month 3 Check-In & Update

Hello, hello!

The lovely Ingrid from Curly Spring Blossom has once again convinced me to take part in a new project pan – this time a Spring Cleaning Project Pan. This one is a little different than the previous ones, as we will be only posting once a month with our progress and reviewing four of the sixteen products to be panned.

Today is the three month check-in and update and review of the next four products! I’ve been pretty good about using every product at least once or twice a week, and for some products, I’m using them more than that.

Review of the next four products:

ColourPop Super Shock Cheeks in Sticky Sweet and Stole the Show

Originally reviewed here. I’ve been using both of these cheek products each week, and despite making a visible dent in them, they seem to be staying at the same weight which is frustrating! As you can probably guess, Stole the Show (on the right) is well loved! I dropped it when I first got it and it cracked, so I had to try to press it back together, so it is a little lumpy. I would re-buy Stole the Show. I’ve been forcing myself to use Sticky Sweet, so it is doubtful that I will re-purchase as it is a little out of my comfort zone.

NudeStix in Gel Lip and Cheek Balm in Pulse

Spring Cleaning #3

This was one of the products that I got at last year’s Ipsy Generation Beauty event in Toronto. I’m so happy to have rediscovered this one, it is a very wearable pinky nude shade. I’ve only worn this one as a lipstick, and not on my cheeks, so I can’t comment on how it works as a blush. It is super moisturizing and the colour is fairly long wearing. I’ll likely buy this shade when I use it up, or another shade from this line as I’m loving it so much! Original review is here.

Sukin Revitalizing Facial Scrub

Spring Cleaning #3

The only reason why this product was put into the current project pan is because I have a bit of a stock pile of facial scrubs, and this one was the oldest one in my stash. This is a lovely and gentle facial scrub – perfect for sensitive skins. I still love it, and will more than likely re-purchase this once I’ve cleared out more of my skincare stash. This one is close to finishing! Original review is here.

Now for a little science on all sixteen of the products! I borrowed Stashy’s scientific method for measuring progress – I’ve weighed each of the products on my new little kitchen scale, so I can keep track of how much I will have used up each month.

Spring Cleaning #3

Despite using all of the makeup items several times each week for the past month, once again there is very little change on the scales – so frustrating! I can definitely see progress with the non-makeup items though!

Thanks for reading, and have a beautiful day! ❤

  2. Wow, look at how much you used of the NudeStix! I often think those dual purpose products really end up being only used for one purpose even thought I’d have every intention (justification) to use it both ways! 😛
    I went looking for that Sukin scrub but haven’t seen it at Winners – will continue to keep my eye out for it!

  3. I feel your frustration on not seeing any progress on products you’re trying to use up – I’ve been using the same Tarte blush for months and it barely looks any different. Doesn’t help that I’m not the biggest fan of the shade either. I always see Sukin products at Winners here – I need to give them a try as I have sensitive skin too.

    Good luck with your project pan!

  4. I know it’s tough to finish actual beauty products. And I know progress is rarely visible… If I didn’t include toiletries in my empties posts, I’d never have any empties to write about. And don’t forget that I’ve been trying to finish an eye palette for a year now. 7 of the 12 pans are empty – but I hardly see any progress with the last 5 pans.

    Anyway, there’s nothing you can do really. Just continue to use your products, and hopefully you’ll be able to throw them out when they’re finished and not because (5 years from now) they’ve gone off. 😉
