I’ve also been doing a teeny bit of shopping around, not for myself, but I would like to have my first blog contest soon, to celebrate the start of summer season, and to thank all my wonderful readers who have been so supportive! Please stay tuned for that soon :)
Today, I would like to give you a much belated update on my progress in “Project 20 Pan”. It’s been a while since I’ve started doing this with AbcGrrrL and both of us are doing super well with it :) We’ve already been plotting a huge shopping spree once we finish with our no-buy ban, hahaha it’s nice to be looking forward to that :p
Continued from last time…
Product #3: Merlot Grape Seed Moisturizer
This light moisturizer is made from natural grape seed. It has antioxidant and anti-wrinkle properties, and has SPF 15. I used this product as my winter SPF lotion, and loved it so much. Its texture is a light gel consistency, and is very fast absorbent. It took me from last fall to May to finish this 4 fl. Oz. tub, with daily usage. Pretty good deal I say!
Product #4: Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief
I finished my night time moisturizer around the same time as my Merlot day time moisturizer. This is also a gel-like moisturizer that absorbs very quickly and makes skin feel so smooth and hydrated. This could also be slathered on as a 5-minute moisture mask, but most of the time I just pat it in my face before I go to sleep. I love how soft my face feels after I wake up.
Product #5: Neutrogena Oil-free Eye Makeup Remover
My everyday eye makeup remover. I’ve used up so many bottles of this. It works like a charm to remove even the toughest eyeliner and mascaras. And it’s a drugstore brand, so it’s super economical.
Product #6: Lypsyl LypMoisturizer Lip Balm
This lip balm is very moisturizing, and makes my lips remain moisturized until the morning. I love how cute the packaging is, the slider on the side pushes the product up, and it’s shaped like a yellow busy bee! :)
Product #7: Garnier Nutrioniste Skin Renew Daily Anti-fatigue Eye Cream
I used this day and night as the first layer of eye cream I apply on. Then in the night I follow up with a more moisturizing cream that contains anti-wrinkle formula. In the morning, I follow up with an eye cream with SPF. This light gel-like cream is easy to apply and absorb, but I don’t feel like it does anything for my eyes, in terms of de-puff, or diminish dark circles, help smooth out fine lines…that’s why I never used it alone because I don’t think it’s very effective.
Product #8: Pantene Pro-V Restoratives Breakage Defense Shampoo
Suppose to strengthen and fortify weak and exhausted hair to provide up to 90% less hair fall due to breakage in 1 month. Never completed the test to see whether if it was effective since I’ve only been using it on and off (too much shampoos in the shower to finish up, haha, it’s all LUSH’s fault :p). It’s an okay everyday shampoo.
Product #9: Gillette Satin Care Sensitive Skin Shave Gel
I’ve been using this brand of shaving gel for many many many years now and I’m always stocked up with this.
Product #10: Puritan’s Pride Vitamin E Cream
A scent-less creamy moisturizer for the face, neck and body. I’ve had this for a while, so glad to finally finish it off (I slathered a lot of it on my body every night…it’s the fastest way to finish off a product, hehehe :p)
Product #11: Daiweili OPC Multi-Effective Energizing Eye Cream
I bought this eye cream during my trip to China. It’s supposedly to be made from grape-seed extract as well. I didn’t want to put this around my eyes because it stung my eyes a little bit when I tried it. So I used it as a neck cream nightly. It’s very rich and makes my neck smooth and moisturized.
Last picture for today…my favorite appetizer: Onion Rings!!! *drool*
