Bye Bye Love's 1

I was obsessed with project pan videos for a while. It was interesting for me to see what products people loved so much that they made it all the way through them. I also think that a product review means so much more when the product has been used over a long period of time. That being said, I was not about to jump on the project pan bandwagon... a buying freeze? uh uh nope. So, I called it Bye Bye Loves.

Now, Bye Bye Loves are not all loves... sometimes there are duds. But, these are honest reviews on products that I have used in their entirety or in rare cases, products I could not stand to use and go straight to the trash.

My love for watching Project Pan videos was only part of my inspiration for starting this series.  I love beauty products and tend to jump around a lot with what I use. I thought if I started doing this series it would help me stay on track and focus on using what I have and make me get rid of what I will never use.

This is the first Bye Bye Love's video I made in November. I aimed for it to be a monthly thing, but got off track with my video making around Christmas.  I'm filming my next video this week so I thought I would post my first video now.  Now that I'm blogging, I will have individual product photos with my next blog.

November Bye Bye Loves...
Elariia - Frangipani - Moisturizing Rich Body Cream - Regular Price $24.50 on Sale now for $12.50
This one is a LOVE! Fresh, Sweet, Floral Fragrance and oh so moisturizing! I will definitely repurchase.

Perlier - Chocolate Vanilla - Bath & Shower Cream - $14.50
Love the moisturizing formula but the fragrance could be stronger.  I love this fragrance in the body cream.  I would not repurchase it again on its own, but if I get it in a set of other Chocolate Vanilla products I would happily use it again.

Perlier - Risarium Black Rice Double Effect Night Cream - $45
This one grew to be a love as well.  I was thrown off by the light formula for a night cream, but it is fabulous for my skin in the summer.  I will repurchase and probably soon! Summer is right around the corner!

Philosophy - Hope in a Jar - Original 2oz. - Sephora $38
Love, Love, Love! This is one that I always go back to.  I get distracted and love trying new things but I always work this into my rotation. Light weight but deeply moisturizing and Philosophy is a brand that I really trust.

Dove - Fresh - Invisible Solid Deodorant anti-perpirant - Drugstore around $4
Love! Holy Grail Deodorant anti-perspirant. Strange to share, yes, but I struggled for so long to find what really works for me and now I never stray. Never, no matter what is on sale and boy am I a sucker for sales!

Sephora Collection - Atomic Volume Mascara - Full Size $15 in Black or Ultra Black at Sephora
Love! I was a long time lover of Max Factor 2,000 calorie mascara which I thought was discontinued but it seems was reformulated and kind of hard to find.  So, I have been exploring many different mascaras and until this one the only one I have loved is Bare Escentuals Flawless Definition Mascara. Atomic Volume Mascara really did volumize by separating and defining my lashes without clumping, flaking or smudging.  I'm still trying others in the hopes to find a new Drugstore Holy Grail mascara, but if all else fails I will certainly come back to this one.

Have you tried any of these products? What did you think of them?
