Project 100 Pan (part 14)

54) Bath & Body Works Candy Cane Bliss Anti-Bacterial Foaming Hand Soap – I’m nearing the end of my stash of these soaps and I’m still in two minds about ordering more because the shipping fees are so steep. However, this was a wonderful product and I was sad to see it go. Twisted Peppermint is my favourite scent range from Bath & Body Works, and this is very similar so of course it smelled AMAZING and I wanted to chew my hands off each time I used it.

55) LUSH Porridge Soap – I really loved this when I first started using it, but I grew to hate it. Which is kind of a shame, because I went out and bought a second bar before I had a chance to finish the first one up. Oops. I love the smell and the texture but I don’t like the gritty oat bits that come off in big chunks and creep around the bottom of my shower looking gross. Also, it makes my skin taste weird.

56 & 57) O&M Hydrate and Conquer Shampoo & Conditioner – Do you want your hair to smell like a vanilla caramel sundae? Here you go. You’re welcome. This is a great shampoo/conditioner duo and I really enjoyed using it. I’d consider purchasing these both again once I use up the back log of shampoo and conditioner I have sitting in my bathroom cupboard.

58) Essenzza Carrot Seed & Coconut Oil Face Mask – I’m still not over the general novelty of sheet masks, mostly I love them because they allow me to frighten the hell out of my dog without putting in too much effort. This sheet mask was SUPER wet and although it left my skin feeling glowy and fresh, I did have to wash the excess product off of my face after mask application because I couldn’t stand the feel of it (even after attempting to massage it in). I have a few other masks from this range and I can’t wait to try them out. I’ll be posting a full review soon.

Project 100 Pan (repurchased)

I’ve mentioned all of these products before, and obviously I love them because they’re things that I repurchase time and time again, so I’ll just give you guys a general list of what I finished (and replaced) recently: Nivea Fragrance Free Facial Cleansing Wipes (x 3), Boscia Green Tea Blotting Linens (x2), Beauty Blender Sponge, Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer (x2), Lancome Hypnose Mascara, Burt’s Bees Honey & Sugar Scrub, and Terax Crema Conditioner. I would consider all of these products to be my ‘holy grail’ items. Buy them.

53) La Mav Wrinkle Smoother Complex – I have a LOT of skin care samples sitting in one of my bathroom drawers that I felt like I was never going to be able to use up (because I’m so strict about what I put on my face), so I’ve decided to start using them up on other areas of my body. This in particular I used as a neck cream and it was nice enough but I wasn’t a big fan of the strong herbal scent. My neck is still wrinkly.

53) Paula’s Choice Skin Balancing Oil Absorbing Mask – This was a nice enough mask, it was slightly ‘tight’ on application, but it didn’t leave my skin red or irritated once I’d rinsed it off. My face is still oily.

53) Paula’s Choice Hydralight One Step Face Cleanser x 3 – I take sample sized versions of my favourite skin care with me when I travel, and I used these up on my trip down south earlier this year. I love this cleanser, it’s my new magna carta holy grail.

53) L’Oreal Sublime Mousse Conditioner x 2 – I go through quite a few of these conditioners because they come with the hair dye that I use. They’re nice, nothing special. The packaging is pretty dumb though, it’s impossible to squeeze everything out of the tube and I often find myself in the shower angrily battling with these stupid little containers.

53) Olivina Lavender Hand & Body Lotion – I’m not a huge fan of lavender scented products but this wasn’t too bad, just not something I would consider purchasing a full sized version of.

53) Kiehl’s Crème de Corps – I really like this, it’s a great scent free lotion and if I had any need whatsoever to buy a new body lotion I would definitely consider picking this up.

53) Paula’s Choice Hydralight Healthy Skin Refreshing Toner – I used this sample alongside the Paula’s Choice Cleanser samples when I went on my trip earlier this year. I love this product, and I own a full size version of it already.

Project 100 Pan (part 12)

48) LUSH Cupcake Face Mask – I’ve come to the conclusion that the only LUSH mask I’m ever going to like is Mask of Magnaminty. Unfortunately, every time I visit a store to return my empty pots (in exchange for a free mask) they never have it in stock so I’m forced to play skin care Russian roulette. In this round I discovered that Cupcake does NOT work well with my skin. At all. Side note: it smells good and it made me hungry.

49) Bath + Body Works Apple Crumble Candle – This candle smelled delicious. Like, I could eat this candle. It’s pretty rare for me to not like a Bath + Body Works candle, especially if it’s a gourmand scent and this was no exception.

50) O&M Detox Shampoo – I bought the travel sized version of this product to see whether I liked it enough to purchase the full size. Sadly as much as I love O&M as a brand, I didn’t enjoy using this clarifying shampoo as much as others I’ve tried so I won’t be purchasing the larger bottle.

51) Bath + Body Works Winter Candy Apple Anti-Bacterial Foaming Hand Soap – Yum.

52) MOR Milk Bath Gel – Guys, I am obsessed with this scent range and MOR have discontinued it. The nerve. I IMPLORE YOU TO BRING IT BACK, MOR. BRING IT BACK.

Project 100 Pan (part 11)

43) (not pictured) MOR Hand and Shower Gel in Honey Nectar – This took FOREVER to finish up, and I couldn’t post a picture of the container because it was in a hideously grim state of being after sitting in my shower for so long. The product itself was nice but I wasn’t sad to see it go because I’d had it forever. Since the dawn of TIME.

44) Bath + Body Works Fresh Picked Strawberries Anti-Bac Foaming Hand Soap – Delicious. As always, I won’t be purchasing any more of these hand soaps because I can’t justify the cost. I was sad to see this go, I like having hands that smell like summer fruits.

45) Bath + Body Works Mint Chocolate Candle – Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy. This smelled INCREDIBLE. I don’t plan on buying anymore candles from Bath + Body Works due to the cost of shipping (see above) but I did really love this scent and I’m sad to see this go. You might not be able to tell from the photo but I scraped all of the scrumptious minty chocolate wax dregs out of the jar to use in my oil burner. Sad, I know. At least I didn’t try to eat them or did I.

46) Bath + Body Works Seashore Candle – What does the seashore smell like? Third degree burns and a substantial fear of death by shark attack? Ha ha ha, I am not joking. But no, according to Bath + Body Works it smells like sharp florals. I didn’t like this, lucky it was tiny. As a general FYI, these tiny little Bath + Body Works Candles pack quite a punch and the scent throw is impressive.

47) Kate Somerville Oil Free Moisturiser – I loved this moisturiser, but I’ve decided to stick to my Paula’s Choice skin care for a while so I won’t be repurchasing this. It was a treat to use though, and I powered through it quite quickly. I am sad to announce that I do not look like Lauren Conrad after using this product consistently for a couple of months.

42) Marchesa Parfum D’Extase – This came free with a Sephora order that I placed a little while ago, so I figured I would give it a try but it wasn’t my cup of tea at all. I really appreciate the effort they’ve made to be environmentally conscious with this packaging.

42) Alchemic Muse Waikiki Soap – This was a nice soap, it had a fresh fruity sort of smell to it. I don’t buy specialty scented soaps like this anymore, but if I did I would consider purchasing a full sized version of this.

42) Olivina Olive Hand & Body Lotion – This lotion had a nice formula but the scent was way too ‘green’ for my personal taste.

42) Jo Malone Orange Blossom Perfume – What I wouldn’t give to have floral perfumes work for me. There are so many beautiful scents out there – including this one – that I love but can’t seem to wear without them turning rancid when combined with my skin chemistry.

42) Calvin Klein Sheer Beauty Perfume – I really liked this perfume, it reminded me a lot of Chanel’s Chance. The only down side is that it didn’t have great wear time on my skin and for that reason I would never consider buying a full version of it.

42) Pure Fiji Hydrating Body Lotion with Coconut – I loved this. Love love love love loved this. This is one of the best smelling body lotions I’ve come across, and paired with it’s lightweight formula it made for an excellent summer moisturiser. I’ll definitely be purchasing a full sized version of this when the warm weather rolls around again.

42) Weleda Almond Facial Cleanser – I really like this product range from Weleda, and have now used up all of my little almond samples. Sad. The cleanser was probably my least favourite of the bunch, but it was still a nice enough product to use.

42) L’Oreal Sublime Mousse Conditioner – As always, this is the conditioner sample that comes with the hair colour I use. I like it, and I would probably consider buying the full sized version of it if I ever stumbled across it.

42) Trilogy Age Proof Nutrient Plus Firming Serum – I have absolutely no recollection of using this sample, unfortunately. I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing, but I’m leaning towards bad if it was that forgettable.

42) Dermalogica Multivitamin Power Recovery Masque – I love taking these little samples with me when I stay away from home or go on holiday. This is one of my favourite face masques, and I’m actually a bit surprised that I don’t own a full version of it. Or maybe I do? Oh boy.
