Try It Tuesday: Neutrogena Combination Skin Moisturizer

Two years ago, I decided I needed a moisturizer in my life. I found love with Neutrogena's Sensitive Skin Moisturizer. It was claimed to be perfect for oily skin, and at first it was brilliant, but then the brilliance started to dwindle and I started to wonder if I have combination skin now. 
Fast forward to today and I've gotten my hands on Neutrogena's Combination Skin Moisturizer. I had high hopes from the get-go.

The packaging is exactly the same, but this version has a little pinkish-orange box on the bottom. I think the pump gives the perfect amount of product. My only complaint is that it be see through, I hate when I don't know when it's nearly done. Obviously the product amount decreases once it's hit the end, but then I bang on the bottle for the next week until I've admitted defeat...
Anyway, how was this different from the sensitive skin formula? Well when you first apply it, it feels more water-y. It's definitely odd. It also didn't sink into my skin as quickly. That's probably because my skin ate up the other and didn't give enough moisture anymore. But once it's dry, my skin feels matte. It's a lovely feeling. 
Throughout the day it  hold up pretty good with my cheeks and forehead. My nose and chin are my problem areas and my chin isn't as oily as my nose so it takes a fair amount of time to pass before I feel gross. What I found that was true for the sensitive formula was that it makes an excellent night moisturizer. 
Final thoughts: I like this, I'll keep using it. If there are any lighter formulas that do the job during the day, let me know...

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…

#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…
