Spring Goals

Honestly I usually find Goals posts kinda cheesy and boring to read - I almost always skip them unless they come from one of my favorite must-read bloggers. Naturally, I never expected to write one both for the reason stated above and also because I have a hard time believing more than a handful of my readers are particularly interested in me as a person. On the flip side, I tend to keep a pretty open dialog about goals with a select group of friends, and the Spring Goals I set for myself a few weeks ago were well received, so I thought maybe they were worth sharing...so...here they are!

The Ordinary Plant Derived Squalane Review

The Ordinary says "Squalane is a saturated and stable hydrocarbon that is found naturally in the skin. It has very high emollience, is an exceptional hydrator and can prevent ongoing loss of hydration that impairs dermal suppleness. Squalane is non-comedogenic and is suitable for use on all skin types. It can also be applied to hair to increase heat protection, add shine and reduce breakage potential." The Ordinary's Plant Derived Squalane contains 30ml (1 fl oz) and retails for $13.90AUD ($7.90USD). This product is cruelty free, vegan friendly, and made in Canada.

Three new products have found their way in as well! Click through for more on the seven Products I've Hit Pan On!

Out with the Old - August 2018 Empties

August was a fairly average empties month for me. I used up 11 products - and no cans of Batiste Dry Shampoo! That's so unusual for me! Among August's finished products are a beloved eyeshadow, a favorite face mask, and more. As always, the products I plan to repurchase are marked with an asterisk (*). Click through to read more!
