Aaaand i've hit pan on most of the items on my lists and then some. Will definitely compile a more detailed list of used up and next to use up items as self-motivation when I have more time.
I also discovered another tube of blistex, and another bottle of felce azzura, so still working on those. Lol, just as I think I'm done with them, more crawl out of the woodwork.
I've found a decent baby cream that moisturizes enough without breaking me out, and that's a success in my book. At my age I should really be on an anti aging regime, but I can't for the life of me find anything that works with my skin, so am currently just aiming at not being dehydrated.
I haven't had my fragrance obsession under control. I bought more scents, some of them blindly, and gave some away because they didn't work for me. Luckily, I buy travel sizes, so it wasn't a huge expense. On my next purchase, I made sure to test them before buying and actually got stuff I like wearing. I have enough of a collection now to feel like I can stop buying until I run out, literally. BUT I did use up some of the scents I dreaded using up, both hubs and I survived the experience and are glad it's over.
I have stopped buying things when I feel ugly. They won't make me into someone else. I have stopped depriving myself from things I enjoy using for the same reason too. I'm not "too ugly to be allowed to smell good" for example.
All in all, I buy things a lot more rationally now. I also need to toss out a few things. If they don't work, they don't.
When i'm back, I want to be able say I threw out the nivea samples, vichy foundation samples, catrice foundation, two catrice concealers, mixa cream, and possibly a nivea cream (retesting to make sure it was the culprit behind redness and burning upon first use), dry shampoo.
Happy panning everyone!!
