the hand lotion i can't get enough of...


Ever since last year, I've become hand lotion obsessed. I love me some body lotion, and in the past, I would just use the excess for my hands and go on with my day. I never really thought to use a separate lotion for my hands, until I needed a new use for my make-shift moisturizer. I learned that you should always read labels, especially when it's used on your skin. Basically, the lotion I was using was either for your body or hands, and I used it on my face, which was way oilier than needed. So after I learned that I need to use an actual moisturizer, I used the lotion for what it was for and used it on my hands since they were drier than I would like (it was an especially cold winter). 
Long story short, I wanted to try all different hand lotions, seeking for the best, and just to try because I had really started blogging then and I just love to give everything a shot. One day I was shopping my hallway closet for more body lotions to try, and came across the True Blue Spa hand lotion: Look Ma, New Hands. 


At first glance, it looks adorable. It's a nice size to test the product, and the colors are both my favorite and actually one of my favorite color combinations. The tube itself I have mixed feelings for. I prefer when products are see-through (or at least when I hold it up to a light, I can be able to see how much is inside), so the fact that it's opaque was a bit difficult to see how much was left. However, because it was a squeezy tube, I was able to smush it and bend it so that I could use every last bit that I could. But that's just me being picky...

The product itself was a game changer for me. Instantly my hands became soft and well moisturized. The formula is fairly thick, so it left a bit of a wet/sticky feeling if too much was on, but my skin soaked it up fast enough for me to be fine with it. Using it at night, before bed, was the best time to use it, as I felt as if my hands truly were new when I woke up. I found that I barely needed a pea-sized amount, so it lasted a long time. 

Where can you find this? Well, Bath & Body Works sell True Blue Spa products, and if it's not in stores, it certainly is on their website. The design on the tube has changed a few times since I got mine, but the product still remains to be outstanding. ,I can see this lotion becoming one of those products that I always go back to, and I can't recommend it enough.

Me oh my am I determined to get my lip products under control. It's basically me decluttering at this point rather than actually using, but these lip products I've had for a while, so I don't feel as bad. Also, to sum up the lip products, unless they stand out to me as not wearing well (fading unevenly, clumping oddly, etc), or the color doesn't suit me, I generally love/make the color work. 
I've also used up quite a few skin care products that I wasn't expecting to finish.
Things I've Used Up:
Joico Color Infuse Red Shampoo: I bloody love this stuff. I claim this is the thing that makes my hair stay red as long as it does. Not only does it have color-lasting powers, but it cleans your hair and actually makes it feel clean. Huge plus in my book. I'm still undecided how long I want to keep my red hair, but if I ever decide to keep it, or go back to red, this is the first thing I'm gonna pick up.
Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream: This was a sample that I foun…

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…
