3 and 3.5 Done!

L'Occitane Dry Skin Hand Cream (mini size) and Hanskin Toner
L'Occitane Hand Cream: love this stuff, creamy, moisturising and smells extremely calming and lovely.  I have at least 2 full size of this so I do not have to worry running out of this, for now!

Hanskin: the content is nice and the dispenser is better.  I guess I use this up quite fast because the mist is quite fine and even - like~ :)

The Hanskin bottle now contains a mixture of the below 3 products.

1) sample of Rhoto 極潤
2) Boots Botanics Organic Rosewater Toner
3) ChoiFung Joseristine Rosewater Spray

I will count this as 2.5 if I will finish it within this round :P (cheating?)

Project 10 Pan – the 1st Official MU one


So I am officially going on a P10P, meaning no purchase of MU items until I totally finish up Ten MU items, with the following conditions:

  • Restricted not to purchase any Base MU (foundation and powder), Point MU (eyes, lips, cheeks), Colour Nail Varnish, False Lashes only :P
  • Tools, accessories, hair products, body products, perfume and skin care are excluded
  • I allow myself to do duty-free shopping and souvenir purchases on my trip to Spain (mid August)
  • Sample sizes of MU are included
  • If there are more than 1 colour in a palette, using up 1 colour counts as using up 1 product :P
  • Receiving Gifts and Souvenirs from friends or other purchases are accepted
  • This does not include my Asos order of Too-faced palette (which has not yet arrived)


Before I go on with the potential contestants (i.e. those to-be-used-up), I would like to venture into the endless wish list first. To be honest, to buy more things that I ultimately will be happier to have is the purpose of doing this P10P, down-sizing my collection just comes 2nd. So:


  • Everyday minerals blush in Like Lady Bird Lake, Sand Cherry, or Come What May
  • OCC Lip Tars, a lot of them! 

Erm.. Guess it is not good to make too long a wishlist. I can come back to this later on.

P10SC - 9th and 8th runner up

Nuxe Masque Doux Aromatique aux 3 Roses pore tightening & spot lightening mask

This could technically be cheating because on the day I started my P10SC, I bought a back-up of the Nuxe mask.

Bought this first because Laura ( originally from mentioned this in a video haul (or something).  Rushed to a Sasa right after work that day, looked at the price tag, procured, tried once and then stored it somewhere.

(could be) My Fav MU Primer

Guerlain Essence d'Eclat a l'Or Pur

Or in English, Radiance Concentrate with Pure Gold Make-up Base.  Got 1 sample size of it as the price per ml and price for the bottle are both cheaper than the real stuff.  

Will I buy this baby size again? Yes, most probably.  (and I already have the 2nd sample in use)  

Will I pay full price for the bigger one? No, definitely.
The Good:
- moisturises well 
- make up applies above it nicely
- fragranted but not over
- gold bits are interesting

The Con:
- the price, obviously
- can't use the last bit up (in this packaging), hence various tools are employed to pull the stopper/pump out
- MU base may not be necessary for everyone
- these baby bottles aren't always available and sometimes (also) over-priced

First Project 10 Skin Care - 26th July

Photo borrowed from

  Rules first:

  • Not allowing myself to buy any more skin care items until 10 are used up
  • Facial care is included: face wash, toner, serums, lotions, creams, masks, etc
  • Body care is included: body scrub and moisturizers, for instance
  • Sample sizes or travel sizes are counted: but counted as 1/2 a product only
  • Facial sheet masks will be counted separately (otherwise I will easily finish this project in a week and a half)

RUU #5

Guerlain Abeille Royal Youth Serum, sample size

it smells ridiculously fragranted.  no visible results after about 1 to 2 weeks use.  i use this at night only.  guess i'm too 'young' for this yet.  relief.

Not Urgent Wish List

25/7/11: 1st edit
This is insanely long but I think this could well-serve a purpose to showing how keen I am into products, and set a somewhat shallow but exciting goal for me to achieve.
