Project 10 Pan Finale!

Hola Beauties!
I know it's been a while, but guess who's used up all this stuff?! Me.

I mentioned a while back that I was 'annoyed' at some of the things I've used up. I've got two reasons why. Either the products were:

1. Awesome and I was sad to see the bottom of them (Paul Mitchell Shampoo, Organix Shampoo, Argania Conditioner, Body Shop Peach Shower Gel, Clarins and Avene)
2. So disgusting that it was torture to use it up (Imperial Leather Foaming Shower Gel).

List of bomb-diggity products:

- Clarins Renew Plus Body Serum
- Clarins Eau Dynamisante Shower Gel
- Avene Light & Rich Hydrating Creams
- Paul Mitchell Instant Moisture Daily Shampoo (my absolute fave!)
- Organix Moroccan Argan Oil Shampoo (from Australia)
- Argania Moisture Repair Conditoner
- The Body Shop Peach Shower Gel (can't buy anymore :( )

Then there's the Imperial Leather Shower Foam. I think I owe it an explanation. For one, I'm a bit of a shower gel snob and go to great lengths to choose nice, delicious ones. This product was an impulse buy one grocery shop. I'd just watched Louise Sprinkle Of Glitter on Youtube and she'd made a video (I think it had Saucy Woopsie in the title) that included this lovely foaming shower gel (like a shaving gel kinda). I love Louise and she made it look so fun that as soon as I saw this foaming thing at the supermarket, I pounced on it. I thought that I'd picked the smart scent choice but obviously not. The first two washes were okay, but then the scent got to me. It became worse and worse everyday and I hated using it but I knew I had to finish this Project 10 Pan, so I took one for the team and just finished it! I did beg Chris to start using it too so that it would go down quicker. I got the Passionflower and Jojoba one, do a lot of sniffing in the store if you're going to get one of these.

So that's 9 things used up which brings my official total to....


That's nearly two project 10 pans!

I've also nearly used up these things! I'll be sad to see those perfumes go.
What, you don't use a bust gel?! ;)

What have you used up?

Introducing Home By Lizy!

A few days ago, after much thought and procrastination, I decided to start a home blog!

If you didn't gather from the name, my new blog will be a sister blog to this one. I've always wanted to write about baking, crafts and home decor but never thought that Beauty by Lizy was the right place to do it. 

If you were that way inclined, you could click on my new header above and that will take you to my new blog. 

I'll still be blogging over here often and have a few ideas of fun posts that I want to do before the New Year!

Over on Home by Lizy, I've already shared pictures of our Christmas tree and posted a yummy Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. 

See you over there!

(PS please remember that I've only just started that blog, so it's not amazing yet ;) )

November 2012 Favourites

Happy December!
Seeing as Christmas is just around the corner, I thought a festive red background was fitting. If you couldn't tell, I love Christmas!
These are the products that I've used and loved in November, a real mix.

Evolu Purifying Mask* - I've used this as my treatment mask a couple of times this month. My skin is quite funny, dehydrated and congested at the same time. I can use it as a spot treatment if I need it, but it doesn't dry my skin out if I use it all over. It's got Mistletoe in it too, xmas love!
Clarins Roll-On Deodorant* - It seems a bit extravagant to use such an expensive deodorant ($41) but honestly, once you use this you'll never go back. It's got a beautiful gentle smell, nothing fake and sickly-sweet. It lasts all day and doesn't irritate just-shaved armpits.
Trilogy Rosehip Oil + Antioxidant - I've always had a Rosehip Oil on hand when I need it and when my last one ran out I had to replace it with this one. I feel good knowing it's got the added antioxidant factor, Lycopene, Cranberry and Acai. Smoothes and hydrates my skin.

Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Foundation* - When I need a little extra coverage I forgo my Clarins Skin Illusion and use this. I've noticed a few extra little freckles and things that I quite like covering so this is perfect. I like the dewy finish too.
China Glaze Ruby Pumps - This red, glittery polish satisfies my Christmas obsession. This month I've worn it on fingers and toes and received quite a few compliments. Love!
Colgate Optic White Toothpaste - Is it weird I've included a toothpaste into the mix? I had one of my sweet friends bring this to me from the States. It's a shame I can't buy it in New Zealand because it quickly became my favourite toothpaste everrrr. I really noticed a difference in how white my teeth were, even after the first use. I like the taste too, not many NZ toothpastes taste like that. If you live in the States and want to do a toothpaste swap, please email me hahaha!

Bath & Body Works (Slatkin & Co) Leaves Candle - I had my friend bring this over for me too (love her!). I'm so happy to have this because I've been wanting it for 3.5 years (ever since Tiffany D first mentioned it) but every time my friend went to buy it it was out of season or out of stock. I finally have it and have been burning it all month, getting in the festive mood. Golden nectar, red apple and berries combine to make one of the best things I've ever smelt. Thanks Samie! x
Clairol Nice'n Easy Colour Blend Foam 4RB - I dyed my hair this month! I thought it needed a pick me up as my ends were light and my roots were dull. This stuff smells absolutely horrible and I nearly washed it off early. The foam was easy to apply and the colour turned out great. For $7.50 you can't complain... Love my new colour!

Hope you loved my favourites for November! 
Are you as excited about Christmas as me?
