Giving Mists A Go...

For years, I hear all my favorite bloggers and vloggers go on and on about face mists. I never even thought why it was such a big deal, especially since my face has enough of a glow already, why on earth would I want to add to that? I also was skeptical if they even work... But then I get my hands on a little Honest Beauty Gift where their Elevated Hydrating Mist was included and then I just had to try it!

I had zero expectations for this. I've never used a mist, so how can I expect anything other than my face getting wet? But since this is my first time using a mist, I knew how to apply it, but I didn't know when and that's when Google comes in handy. Google says it's best after you cleanse so you get a better effect with the moisturizer.

I first tried this at night, after having a face mask on, so my skin was being treated to the nines that night. First off, the smell isn't my favorite. I think I get a slight headache from it...and when I applied it, all I need is like 3 spritzes. Maybe 4. Which is nice cause I don't feel like anything is wasted. Out of habit, I started to fan off the wetness, but then I remembered that that is key for moisturizing. So it became a race against the clock to moisturize with my already heavy moisturizing Benefit Total Moisture.

When I woke up, all I could think was wow! My skin actually felt soo nice. No greasy feeling, it just felt amazing, I was impressed, and it also adds to my theory that I have dehydrated skin.. Then I gave this a go before work and see how it wore in the day under makeup. I found nothing special with that, but that's like any other skin product I use in the morning. Night time is just the best time for my skin but I fully intend to make this a part of my routine and see if my skin improves!

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…
