Try It Tuesday: Benefit's Total Moisture

I was much more pleased with day 2 of my benefit calendar! Day 2 had the Total Moisture facial cream in it. At first glance, I noted the very cute and simple packaging. I didn't take too much note as whether it was for the face or not. I was in a rush, so I decided it was for the face and hoped for the best as I tried to get ready for class. 

As for how the product itself was, I was pleasantly surprised! I have oily/combination skin, so the fact that this is supposed to be for dry skin made me think that I wouldn't get on with this, but for the blogger in me, I wanted to give it a go regardless. It's a very thick consistency, which I thought wouldn't sink into my skin and sort of just sit there and feel greasy all day, which is what moisturizers tend to do after a few hours even if it's for my skin type.
Literally the second after this tiny pea-sized amount of lotion was on my face, it was soaked up! My skin felt super soft and I was intrigued as to how well it would hold up. Bare in mind that the day I tried this, it was particularly gusty with the wind and the weather might have been on my side and kept the grease at bay...but a decent 4/5 hours after application it still was nice and matte. This is usually the time I see shine anyway, so I was a bit shocked (in a good way). Then the next time I caught up with how my skin held up, it was around 6pm, about 10ish hours after I first applied the moisturizer. 
I look forward to trying to trying the rest of this product! Stay tuned because I feel it'll be a good one!

Monthly Empties | April 2018

This month I'm trying hard to just let things go, especially if I've had it for a long time. I feel like I went through a lot of skin care, which is typical, but I also feel like I went through my fair share of makeup bits as well! I always feel like I don't use things up, until it's the last week of the month and suddenly I'm running out of everything. Here's the things I've used up over the past month...

Lush Lip Scrub: I am not really a lip scrub person, only because I feel that lip balm is just fine. Plus, I'm super lazy/forgetful with extra steps, so I definitely neglected trying to use this lip scrub. Technically a lot is still there, but it's expired and solid as a rock at this point. I've never used a lip scrub before, but this was nice! It exfoliated and tasted great and that's all I really care about. I probably won't repurchase this as I won't use it enough in time.

#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…
