Try It Tuesday: Dermalogica Pre Cleanse




First off, apologies for this being super late and for not having a post yesterday, my computer currently hates me and I've been struggling to get onto my computer let alone the internet...
Basically, at work for Christmas, we all got freebies (aka gratis) and one of the gifts was the Dermalogica Pre-Cleanse. I didn't really read too much into it, but I assumed it was part of the whole cleaning situation so I wanted to have a solid routine/was changing my routine to actually try it. 
First off, the packaging is very simple and looks like every other Dermalogica packaging. When I took off the cap, it confused me as I didn't expect there to be some kind of plastic stopper thingy at the top. I really don't know what I expected...
But I read the directions carefully and applied this at night, before I went to take a shower, and first applied about a quarter sized amount of the oil (yea didn't think it was an oil, silly me) all over my face, even my eyelids. Then, like the directions say, I applied water to my face and massaged my skin until it was milky white (which didn't really happen and I was like yea okay Dermalogica). So then I took and shower and did what I normally do...
But OH MY DID WAS I NOT EXPECTING WHAT HAPPENED NEXT. So normally, mascara is the most annoying makeup item to take off. I accepted the fact long ago that my mascara would never completely come off in one go. But once I was out of the shower and was about to go to bed, I checked my lashes, AND ALL THE MASCARA WAS OFF! LIKE ALL OF IT! I was completely blown away by the power of the oil! 
The only con I can see is how I'm never too sure how much I'll need, but since I usually leave my cleanser to take off my face makeup, I might just stick the oil on my lids, but only time will tell...

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…
