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.

#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!

#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 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…
