I’ve chosen 7 beauty products plus one bonus item to concentrate on using up before the first day of summer, June 21. Below is my first update with pictures to show my progress. Blue lines show how much is inside the containers. What are you trying to use up before switching to your summer makeup?
Empty #1 on April 12th Aveeno Fresh Essentials Daily Exfoliating Scrub is what I had in the shower for daily morning cleansing. Usually I apply to a wet face and neck and exfoliate with my Mary Kay Skinvigorate Brush. I like the scent, my smooth skin, and that it didn’t make my cheeks red.
Empty #2 on April 18th The Body Shop Vanilla Brulee Body Butter was quick to use up with nightly applications on my legs, feet and hands. It moisturizes really well, but I’m glad to have moved on to the Cranberry scent.
Julep Blank Canvas Mattifying Primer from my Finish 7 By Spring is my daily face primer. Obviously I use it often because all the writing has worn off the tube! This is the never ending tube, even with four uses each week, there’s still lots of product left inside.
e.l.f. Eye Refresh a hold over from my last Project 10 Pan. I don’t think this does anything other than it feels cooling when applied. I wouldn’t repurchase this, but am intent on using it up. This is another never ending product. I swear every time I think it’s empty there’s more.
Julep Bare Face Cleansing Oil is my go to nightly cleansing product. I apply 4 pumps to a dry face and it dissolves your makeup, even mascara and other eye cosmetics. I then add water to my face and wash everything off with a wet washcloth. I like the scent and already have a backup in my stash for when I run out. Highly recommend giving this a try for an all-in-one makeup remover.
BONUS PRODUCT: e.l.f. Strawberry Creme Lip Balm I use every night at bedtime and sometimes during the day. I have ordered backups of all the e.l.f. lip balms already just to keep around. They are so inexpensive and hydrating.
Aveeno Fresh Essentials Daily Moisturizer is my daily morning moisturizer. I like this because it has SPF. This is going faster than I anticipated as you can see from the blue lines. You can read my Aveeno Fresh Essentials product review here for more of my thoughts.
Mary Kay Cosmetics Pink Sand Lip Crayon you will remember was a hold over from my last Project 10 Pan. Love this, but it’s slow going to use it up. Looks good by itself as it has some gloss to it or can have a lipstick applied over top. Great to throw in your purse for on the go applications. This was limited edition and can’t be repurchased or I would already have a back up.
