Project Pan Finale!: 19th, 20th, 21st, 22nd, and 23rd Products Completed

So instead of trying to keep up I sort of vanished for a while. I actually finished my project pan a while ago (and went over) and just never updated it to tell you guys. Hopefully I can keep up again because I missed you guys. I don't enjoy going MIA.

The 19th product I completed was my Biotherm Skin-Ergetic Non-Stop Anti-Fatigue Moisturizer. This was a great smelling day cream that definitely helped my skin to look more awake in the morning. It was a great anti-oxidant that uses  fruit and vegetable fractions and smells like peach. I did however find that this product clogged my pores often so I was forced to used my exfoliator more often to avoid black heads. I will not re-purchase this product again.

The 20th product I completed was my Shiseido Pureness Pore Purifying Warming Scrub due to the fact that I had to exfoliate so often. I loved the warming sensation that I felt while using the scrub. I wish there were more granuals but overall it was a good product. I would definitely recommend this pore people with oily/ combination skins.

The 21st product I completed was my Neostrata Eye Contour Smoothing Cream. Although it didn't do anything for my puffiness or dark circles I felt it helped with my fine lines and yes, milia. It uses an ingredient called Gluconolactone that is a moisturizing exfoliant which is why I noticed the difference.I would not repurchase this product purely because I have puffiness and dark circles as well :)

The 22nd product I completed was the Maybelline Cream Matte Powder. I FLEW through this stuff. I've never had a powder finish on my so quickly. It definitely helped keep me matte through the say but I found that I had to be careful not to apply too much otherwise it would look very powdery. I would definitely repurchase this product when I finish some of my other powders.

And finally, the third product I finished was my Dr. Brandt's Pores No More Cleanser. The salicylic acid in this product was great in the morning if my skin had a few break-outs but it did nothing to remove make-up. I honestly think this could be replaced with a less expensive product that contains salicylic and therefore I will not be purchasing it.

What's your go-to salicylic based cleanser that is cost effective?

And this completes my Project 20 Pan.

Sixth Product Completed: Shiseido White Lucent Brightening Moisturizing Emulsion W

I feel very excited and accomplished to have finished my sixth product for my project pan. The product I finished was my Shiseido White Lucent Brightening Moisturizing Emulsion W. This took my FOREVER to finish because it was a 75 ml bottle! Definitely a lot of product for the money. Shiseido describes this moisturizer as "A brightening nighttime moisturizer that revitalizes skin after daily exposure to external stressors such as UV rays and dryness. Improves skin texture to optimize skin's clarity and promote inner radiance."  

This product definitely gave me radiance and helped to even out my skin tone without leaving me super greasy like most non-matte night creams. Although I did enjoy this product, I probably won't be repurchasing it anytime soon considering I have a few other night creams that I need to get through. I also want to start using moisturizers for fine lines. 

What are you looking for in a night cream?

Third Product Completed: Shiseido White Lucent Brightening Eye Treatment.

Yesterday morning I finished my Shiseido White Lucent Brightening Eye Treatment. This product took me over 6 months to finish! This is a decent eye cream, considering I don't have dry eyes. The package says it is highly moisturizing, but I wouldn't recommend it for anyone looking for a ton of moisture. I noticed it helped quite a bit with my dark circles. It's suppposed to help with both melanin formation and microcirculation. I used less than half a pump for both eyes, and a lot of product came out each time. Would I purchase this product again? Probably not. Not because I didn't like it, but because I have 2 more eye creams at home already; there are a few others I want to try for fine lines as I am starting to notice some; and because I'm pretty sure it's been discontinued.

This eye cream contains multi-luminizing powder with light diffusing properties to instantly bring luminosity to eye areas. It does not look shiny or sparkley, however, it does make you look much more awake. This can be used morning or night. If you have to choose one, I'd say do this during the day as it gives a little bit of instant gratification.

What eye creams have you tried and loved?
