Show Me That Pan: Update #2

I deserve a grand pat on the back for how many eyeshadows I’ve hit pan on this year. If you too have hit pan on a bunch of eyeshadows this year, pat yourself on the back.

13 By Halloween: Update #1

And finally an update! I’ve been meaning to update this for a while, so it’s nice I’m finally able to. First up, I lost a couple things during my move. I have o idea what happened to them and I have not found them. I also finished one product up, so I just replaced them with something of the same category. Let’s go!

Mask Month: Day 4

Are you tired of this yet, because I’m just tired in general. The urge to go back to bed as strong today but I am here. I wanted something moisturizing after all the clay masks I’ve done, something maybe glowy. So I went for glowy.

Today’s mask is the Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask. Short, and sweet, and to the point. I like it. It is said to provide deep cleansing and pore minimization, it will detox the skin and eliminate dead cells and stimulate cell renewal. It’s supposed to be like a chemical peel but without the downtime. Doubtful, but we shall see.

It has a slightly thick gel texture that spreads really easily. It has a fragrance, but I can’t put my finger on what that is,  but maybe something warm? This is why I don’t talk about perfume. After a few minutes it seems to dry down to a weird sort of clay mask feeling but still incredibly shiny. Like I just applied moisturizer.

So after leaving it on for a half hour, it comes off very easily. My skin does look glowy and fells sort of soft, but some parts have that really dry feeling,

Overall, I give this mask a 5/10 would not mask again. I wouldn’t say no to another free sample, but I would not spend the 58$ price tag for it.

Mask Month: Day 3

I really did not want t get up for this, but here I am.

Today’s mask is the Paulas Choice Skin Balancing Oil-Absorbing Mask. I’ve had this for a few months when I ordered a billion samples from them and just have not used it. Haven’t been too impressed with their stuff, but maybe that will change today. It’ supposed to absorb excess oil, reduce enlarged pores and blackheads and smooth rough, uneven skin.

It has a thin consistency, not as thick as most clay masks. It has the typical off white colour with no scent that I can tell. the foil sachet had just enough for a whole face if spread in a thin layer and I was able to get everywhere. It does dry to the typical dry mask where you can’t even smile.

It dries down by the end and removal is fairly easy for a clay mask. After, my skin feels tight and dry but that’s about it. Fairly average, did what I expected it to do.

I give them 5/10 would not mask again. It’s just average, unless I don’t get oily all day and all night, I wouldn’t purchase this.

I will say, kudos to yesterday’s mask, my skin felt so soft and smooth this morning.

And Now Back To Regularly Scheduled Programming

It’s been a month since my last post. I have good excuses. School, work, and moving took up pretty much all the many hours of the month.

But I have been planning a new series of how-to posts over the past month, so that is something to look forward to. I also need to update my 13 By Halloween Challenge and Show Me That Pan posts, which will be coming soon. I also did a no-buy July, which was mostly completed successfully and will be continuing it into August. More to come on that.

Take a look back to my blog a the end of the day, I’m going to hopefully start a month long challenge that I hope to complete. Wish me luck because I suck at something that I need to do every day that’s not already in my routine.
