Finally hitting pan / January Empties

A makeup jargon, hitting pan is when you use a product so much that you hit the pan that the makeup is packaged in. I am always incredibly happy when I hit pan with my products! yay!

Here's what I've finished up in the past few weeks:

TheBalm Time Balm Concealer in Light  / my review
Lancome Bienfait Multi-Vital spf30 Cream / excellent formula, non-greasy, and soothing
The Body Shop Cranberry Joy Body Butter Sample / smells so good!
Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream in #13 / I love this stuff! and I ordered more! 
St.Ives Naturally Clear Green Tea Scrub / my review
Macadamia Oil Rejuvenating Shampoo / love it! and will be reviewing it soon
The Body Shop Japanese Cherry Blossom Eau de Toilette / Perfect for everyday/workplace
Kiss My Face Peaches and Creme Alpha Hydroxy Moisturizer / love it! I've been using it for two years now
Burt's Bees samples of Milk & Honey Lotion / I really didn't like the smell!
Olay Pro-X Eye Restorative Complex / The sample was quite big and lasted a long time! I may re-purchase
Kaia Facial Cleansing Cloth sample / works well! but a bit too pricy
Missha M BB Boomer / Love it! but it was a very small sample. I may purchase full size later on.


  1. Well done on hitting the pan. I should start doing this instead of constantly buying more before using up the old stuff!

  2. I love that: hitting the pan :)......feels so good to get thru products that you love....I find myself having to hold off on buying new lotions/makeup etc.....must-finish-what-I-have first :)

  3. That is awesome! Hitting pan and finishing up products always feels so strangely empowering. Currently, I'm working on a project purge and a project 25. The purge is just working on getting rid of the massive amounts of samples and beauty products I have, and the 25 is exclusively for all of my makeup!

  4. Its not too often that I use all of a product, I always get bored and want to try something new!

    I found your blog in one of the groups on Beautylish and am now following! would be great if you could check out my blog and follow me too!


  5. Hey fellow MuT member!

    I don't know what it is, but I LOVE when i've finally finished a product. I even keep an eye out on how much I have left of a product just to see how much longer I have before I finally finish it. It's always a good feeling knowing you got your moneys worth out of a good product :)

  6. Yay for finishing things! Also yay to Time Balm! I got some in a set with their tinted moisturizer and Liquid Time Balm. Love them.

    Also yay BB cream! I haven't tried Missha yet, but I picked up two brands in Taiwan (a Korean one and a Japanese one) and BB creams are so awesome and so not like the silliness they've been marketing over here.
