Project 50 Pan (part 2)

06 – Passport Tahiti Moana Body Wash
07 – Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer (I would repurchase this, but I have other moisturisers to use up first before I buy any more)
08 – Flourish Perfume Oil in Sugar (I will definitely be repurchasing this after P50P)
09 – Kosmea Organic Rose Mist
10 – Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant (One of my holy grail skin care items, if I didn’t have another of these in my cupboard ready to be used I would have repurchased and not included it in this tally)

I am busting through these empties like there is no tomorrow… Though having said that, I feel like I might be hitting a dry spell over the next month or so. We’ll see.

December Favourites

December is always a busy month, what with me being COMPLETELY F*CKING OBSESSED WITH CHRISTMAS and all. I love Christmas, just ask anyone in my life and they will no doubt regale you with tales of how I baked them cookies and made them listen to that one Bing Crosby Christmas album three thousand times. Due to me being so busy with Christmas, I tend to keep things in my routine pretty simple and use less of a variety when it comes to beauty products than I normally would. My most reached for products in December were: Bath + Body Works Twisted Peppermint Body Lotion (I use this exclusively in December so now it will always remind me of Christmas… perfect), Muppets for OPI ‘Gettin Miss Piggy With It’ Polish (this makes for a great Christmas nail when layered over OPI Red), Bloom Lip Gloss in Shine, MAC Eyeshadow in Orb & Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso aka the most perfect blush to exist, ever.

Product Review: Burt’s Bees Beeswax Hand Creme [+ giveaway]

My current summer nighttime routine consists of showering, washing my hair, lighting a candle and sitting down to watch an episode of The X Files while letting some of this amazing hand cream sink into my paws. The Burt’s Bees Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Creme comes packaged in a beautiful and fairly heavy glass jar (not only does it look good sitting on my desk, but it doubles as a handy paperweight). The cream itself is also quite heavy, and it takes quite a while to settle into the skin once it’s been rubbed into my hands. For this reason I would suggest only using this cream when you have the time to let it sink in before having to do anything. It smells amazing and has a soft almond scent that is natural and not too sweet or overpowering. As with all Burt’s Bees products, this hand creme is not tested on animals. The Burt’s Bees Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Creme retails for $19.95 AUD and is available for purchase from Echolife Australia. (note: this product was sent for consideration for review) To coincide with this review, Echolife Australia have offered a jar of this amazing cream to giveaway to one of you lovely readers. To enter, simply leave a comment on this entry and be sure to include your email address so that I can contact you if you’re the winner. Please note that this giveaway is open to Australian residents only, and will close on February 14, 2012. Best of luck!

Project 50 Pan

So far, so good! I’ve already managed to finish up –

01 – Bath + Body Works Vanilla Bean Noel Anti-Bac Foaming Hand Soap
02Unico Hair Serum
03 – The Face Shop Real Nature Kelp Mask
04Stila Convertible Colour in Gerbera (I have a back-up of this in my cupboard)
05 – evo Main Prescription Protein Treatment (I would repurchase this, but I have a few other hair treatments sitting in my cupboard waiting to be used up first)

So far I have resisted the urge to buy any unnecessary beauty products, though my favourite foundation is running out so I may have to repurchase a bottle of that soon. How is everyone else going with their Project Pans?
