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!

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…
