Finish 7 By Spring Intro

I will be working on finishing up an additional seven beauty products that I love, but have been hanging around too long in my stash or I think I can use up while also doing Project 10 Pan by March 20th.  There is a large community of “panners” on blogs and YouTube who are doing the Finish 7 by Spring (March 20th) who post their monthly progress on using up seven beauty products.  Here are the ones I’ve chosen.

I am including pictures so you can see how much product is there to start with and I will include new images with each monthly update.  Some will show blue marks to indicate the progress where possible.  Check out my Project 10 Pan #2  and Finish 5 By Cinco De Mayo posts too.  ***Some links may contain affiliate information and I receive a commission when you make a purchase.  Thank you for your support.***


2014-12-31 16.35.35 e.l.f. Essential Soothing Lip Balm:  I keep one in my purse and one in my desk at work.  They are very moisturizing, smell great and are super affordable at only $1.00 each.  The slim tube makes them easy for on the go touch ups.  Click the picture for more information.

2014-12-31 16.35.12 sample of Arbonne Corrective Eye Creme:  My Mom got this from someone and passed it on to me.  I haven’t used it faithfully enough to notice a difference in the skin or fine lines around my eyes, but I prefer my Mary Kay Firming Eye Cream so just want to use this up.  With an eye cream I feel you need to have at least a month’s worth and use it morning and evening to test it out properly.

2014-12-31 16.35.01 Julep Blank Canvas Mattifying Face Primer:  LOVE this!!  You only need the size of a pea for your whole face.  It does leave your face with a matte finish and I’ve been using it over a super moisturizing face balm, so you know it works.  This is a product I will repurchase again when it’s empty.  Click the picture for more information.

2014-12-31 16.46.41 Landeva Organics Oatmeal & Pink Clay Soap:  LOVE this too!  I cut this soap in half to use in the shower and as a facial cleanser.  It does not aggravate my psoriasis (a condition I’ve developed in the last year) so I’m sticking to it.  For the face I have been using just my hands and facecloth, my Mary Kay Skinvigorate Cleansing Brush, or Landeva’s Konjac Sponge.  It works great with all three and I’ve already purchased a back up.

2014-12-31 16.34.49 Mary Kay Mineral Foundation Powder in Ivory 1: I really prefer a cream or liquid foundation as powder alone is just too sheer for my skin.  I have redness on my cheeks and while this covers it, I prefer the look of other foundations and CC Creams.  For anyone who just wants a light coverage, or a young teen just starting into cosmetics, you might enjoy this item.  I will most likely use this with Mary Kay’s Mineral Foundation Powder brush as a setting powder to finish it up and move it out of my stash.  You can contact me directly if you are in Canada for any Mary Kay products.

2014-12-31 16.36.08 Mary Kay TimeWise Firming Eye Cream (blue mark under the first Y):  Honestly I just forget to use eye creams, but I’m finding I need to start using them faithfully according to the crepiness I noticed last week on my eye lids.  This one is my favourite for anti-aging and I’m putting it in this finish project to get into a routine for morning and evening.  When this one is finished (it’s getting near its shelf life) I will be opening a fresh one.  This is a white cream consistency that firms the eye lids and diminishes fine lines around and under the eyes.

2014-12-31 16.36.26 Mary Kay Oil Free Eye Makeup Remover (blue mark under the 2nd Y):  LOVE this so I knew it would be an easy to use up item to round out my 7 for this challenge.  This comes in two phases in the bottle and you shake it up before each use.  Dispense on a cotton pad (I use one for each eye because of the current mascara I am using), set it on the eye area for 10 seconds and it wipes away all your eye makeup.  I’ve never had a product that this wouldn’t remove.

Will you join me in this challenge?  What 7 beauty products do you want to use and pan before March 20th?  Leave me a comment and let’s get a conversation going.
