#ProjectPan December 2017

Wow, December already? This year has flown by. If I've learned anything, it's that skin care definitely gets used up the fastest, which is good, because I've finally gotten a handle of my serums and scrubs. Cleansers, on the other hand, seem to just pile up. Anyway, here's the (pretty pitiful) list of things I've used up over the past month!
Urban Decay Quick Fix Prep Spray: I was a huge fan of B6, so when this new spray came out, I wanted to try this asap! One little issue I thought I was going to have was the smell, as I'm not a huge fan of coconut, and coconut water is part of the ingredients. Thankfully, the smell wasn't an issue. It was actually similar to the smell of summer. I didn't notice a huge improvement in my skin, but as I'm hugely addicted to sprays for their hydration, it's always nice to know of sprays that I get along with.

Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant (.14 oz): Before I even used this, I asked my friend/co-worker what she thou…

#ProjectPan November 2017

I have gone through way too many skin care items this month, and actually starting to lack some replacements for once! Of course I made a shopper's envy order 5 minutes before I realized I needed a backup of something I actually could have bought... gotta love karma...
Neutrogena Deep Clean Gentle Scrub: This was a very citrusy scent. It surprised me. I felt the exfoliators to be more prominent than a micro exfoliator, but less so that others that I've tried. Basically, yes it was gentle. It didn't break me out, which is all I care about. My only complaint is that the exfoliating beads or whatever they were, got stuck in my hair all. the. time. 
H20 Oasis Hydrating Treatment: This was the first gel moisturizer I ever used. I became obsessed very quickly. I'm confused as to what my skin type has turned into, but I think it's safe to say it's on the combo side. Either way, I've learned that my skin lovesssss everything and anything that promised hydrating. It d…

#ProjectPan October 2017

Of course as soon as I barely run out of anything last month, this month I'm running out of everything!
Products I've Used Up:

Zoella Beauty Ginger Cream: I got this during my winter vacation in London, where I went on a Superdrug hunt for any Zoella Beauty product I could get my hands on. This lotion is part of the winter collection, and was part of a set. I am not the pickiest with lotions, but I compare all to my holy grail, Bath & Body Works lotions. With this, a little went a long way. It wasn't a thick formula, and yet it was a crazy amount of moisturizing goodness in such a small amount. Super impressed. The scent itself was a bit too sweet at times, but the smell is definitely just like a gingerbread cookie. 

Batiste Original Dry Shampoo: LOVE the original! Probably my holy grail dry shampoo, even better than the Not Your Mother's one. Sucks up all the oil. No white residue. All good things, all good things...
Living Proof Restore Perfecting Spray (0.5 oz): I p…

#ProjectPan September 2017

This past month, I've said goodbye to my red hair and reintroduced to the blonde life. I've also been surprised by using up various face products...
Joico Color Infuse Red Conditioner: THIS IS THE SOLE REASON MY HAIR HAD SUCH A NICE COPPERY RED HUE. Sorry for the caps locks but this stuff is the best ever if you have dyed your hair any shade of red. Even though towards the end of the month, the orangey bits shone through in the light, my hair had an overall redness to it that had everyone is awe. I swear it makes the red last longer or at least tone it beautifully. If I ever go red again, this will be the first thing I buy.
Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Conditioner ( .33 oz): I'm obsessed with this conditioner as well. Total splurge if I ever bought the full size but oh my I feel like my hair was thanking me for treating it with this conditioner. I truly had a perfect hair day after using this. My hair felt oh so soft and I couldn't have been happier!
Neutrogena Makeup Re…

#ProjectPan August 2017

I'm equally amazed at how much I've been both consistently getting and using up products. Have I hit some sort of happy medium?
What I've Used Up: Bath and Body Works Body Lotion in Cashmere Glow: I looovvveeeee Bath and Body Works lotions. Holy grail. However, this scent wasn't my favorite. a bit too sweet for my liking. Won't buy this particular scent again. Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation: I was given this from my sister, who didn't want it anymore. At first, I thought it was too dark for me, so I would mix this with L'Oreal's true match foundation in a color that was too light for me. Regardless, the combo always got me compliments for my skin looking so nice. The dream mousse foundation sits a bit dewey on me, so I really like to load on powder, and this isn't a popular foundation, but for some reason it looked good on me. I like Maybelline foundations, but I'm not sure if I will rebuy this one as it was a bit too dewey for my liking…

#ProjectPan July 2017

As my stash somehow is larger than ever, despite my makeup ban efforts, I still only buy when I get those Ulta "free gift with any purchase" emails that sucker me in each time. I'm going to promise myself that unless I need a spare necessary product that I'm nearly out of, when I get those emails, I'll stick to racking up my lip balm collection.
What I've used up over the past month: Joico Color Extend Shampoo: At first, I didn't mind this shampoo. But after the glaze on my hair washed out, I started to hate this shampoo. It just doesn't feel like my hair is clean at the roots. Apparently this is a common problem with color friendly shampoo, so I'm not mad about it, but now that it's done, I'm excited to try other shampoos that will make my hair feel like I got it done at the salon after each wash. Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Shampoo (Sample): OH EM GEE. My hair finally felt like my hair again. I see people buy any and all Living Proof prod…

#ProjectPan June 2017

This month has been fairly tame with finishing things. I'm finding that I'm finally reaching the end of some of my powders and foundations. I'm also doing great with decluttering the lip collection. There's also a bit of face things in there, so hopefully a little something for everyone. 
Products I've Used Up: Dermalogica Pre-Cleanse (30 mL): This is truly life changing. Well, not really, but it took off my makeup exceptionally well and I would happily repurchase this again.  Charlotte Tilbury Magic Night Cream (1.5 mL): I liked how it made my skin feel, but if you over do it, it can still feel tacky in the morning, which wasn't fun. I'm gonna stick with my samples of serums and creams for now.  Maybelline Dream Pure BB: I'm not too fussed with foundations, so I got on with this fairly well. It's a light coverage, but with the right brush, it could be a medium coverage. It lasts a good while. My only complaint is that towards the end, it separated a bi…
