PROJECT PAN - UPDATE #1 - Finish 8 By Fall


Hey, everyone!  Long time, no post.  Life has gotten a bit hectic and I need to slow down on posting.    Be sure to follow me on Instagram - @richellespranger - for daily beauty posts.  It's so convenient and quick to post.  Gotta love Insta!

Moving onto today's post, I wanted to share an update on my Project Pan: Finish 8 By Fall.  We're at the halfway mark and definitely have some progress to share... here we go!


1.  Olay Ultra Moisturizing Body Wash
This is a great body wash that's super moisturizing.  It has a creamy texture that works well for shaving your legs and that's what I mostly use it for.  It's a large bottle and now I'm at 1/4 left.

2.  Calgoon Renewing Bath Pearls
I've only used this twice and definitely need to use it more.  I still have 2/3 left.

3.  Pacifica Wake Up Beautiful Mask
Almost done with this bottle!  I've been using this as a neck cream and it does the job. I have 1/4 left.


4.  Nivea Lip Butter in Raspberry Rose Kiss
Here's my main lip balm at the moment and I've made quite a dent!  I'm officially 3/4 done.

5.  Smith's Rosebud Salve
Goodness, not much to update on this tin.. there's just so much product and a little goes a long way.  I will continue to use it as a cuticle cream.. wish me luck!  1/3 left.


Alright -- onto what I finished!  I completed a total of 3/8 items and I'm pretty happy about that :)  The three products are Pacifica Cactus & Kale Water Lotion, Alba Botanica Hawaiian Body Scrub and Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black Perfume.  Not bad for half way through the challenge!

I will post the finale results at the end of August/ early October.

There's the scoop!  Anyone like to join me?  Let me know in the comments!

I hope you enjoyed!  Feel free to follow my site for future posts.  As always, thanks for stopping by :)  Have a great day and talk with you soon!

Lots of Love,

PROJECT PAN - Intro - Finish 8 by Fall!


Hey, everyone!  I'm very excited to announce that I am starting a Project Pan!  This will include 8 products ranging from the bath, body, skincare and more.  Here's the intro and the current status of everything!

This will start June 1st and end August 30th.  I love project pan and I hope you enjoy following along with me!


1.  Calgoon Renewing Bath Pearls

I chose one bath product for the challenge and went with these bath pearls.  They smell great, but I'm not sure if they do much.  This is completely full.

2.  Olay Ultra Moisturizing Body Wash

This is a great body wash but as you can see, it's a huge bottle!  I'm just ready for something else.  There's 1/3 left.

3.  Alba Botanica Hawaiian Body Scrub

Ohh this scrub is awesome and smells like lemonade!  It's around 3/4 full and I want to use it for summer.  It's very coarse and leaves your skin super moisturized-- no lotion needed!



4.  Pacifica Cactus & Kale Water Lotion

Out of the two Pacifica products mentioned here, this is my favorite.  It's very comfortable on the skin but doesn't seem to sink in enough for my dry skin.  In order to use this up, I will be using it as a neck cream.  The bottle is 3/4 full.

5.  Pacifica Wake Up Beautiful Mask

This is an overnight mask by Pacifica.  Although I enjoyed it, it's not nearly as hydrating as the Origin's Drink Up Intensive which I will repurchase next.  This has about half left.

6.  Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black Perfume

I love this perfume, but I think it's starting to turn and want to use it up.  It's about 3/4 full.


7.  Smith's Rosebud Salve

I love this little multipurpose salve.  My favorite way is to use it as a lip balm and cuticle balm.  Both ways work great!  I have over half left.

8.  Nivea Lip Butter in Raspberry Rose Kiss

Final item of the bunch is this lip balm!  I love the formula and smell... just want to use it up before it expires.  I have 1/3 left, but with all tin lip balms, you get much more product inside!


I will post an update mid- July with my progress!  Wish me luck!

LOVE FOR 5 - May's Beauty Favorites!


Hey, everyone!  Welcome back for another LOVE FOR 5 :)  I have a round of all beauty themed items for the month of May that I'm really excited about.  Some are long time classics and others are new that stole my heart.  Here we go!


First item is one of those long time loves that I was referring too.  This foundation is seriously my holy grail... in fact, I've decluttered others because this one is simply the best!  It has buildable medium coverage and leaves such a comfortable natural finish to the skin.  

The shade Gobi (fair with yellow undertones) is truly the most perfect shade match it's not even funny!  I love that manages to cover redness while letting my freckles show through... such a winner, my goodness!


Item number two is another unbeatable staple in my collection!  This is my favorite concealer of all time that I've repurchased over the years.  You get so much product for the price and I love the way it applies.  The shade Fair has pink undertones that helps conceal the blue/purple tones and brightens under the eyes.  If you haven't tried this, you should!!


Moving onto the cheeks, this is a new product that is too beautiful not to share.  Meet MAC's Margin ;)  This is my first MAC blush and the formula is amazing.  Margin is a peach with gold shimmer that instantly brightens the face!  Of course this is a go-to summer shade, but I will continue to use this year round.

Here we have one of my top "I need a Pamper Night" items.  I'm so addicted to this little scrub!  Not only does it do a wonderful job exfoliating your lips, it smells and tastes amazing!  I want to try LUSH's Popcorn Lip Scrub next! 


Number five is a newer purchase that has continued to impress me!  I went into Ulta looking for a face sunscreen and found this guy :)  Although this is a body moisturizer, I love the HEMPZ lotions and tried it anyways.  This stuff is awesome!  I use it after my skincare each morning on my face, down my neck and my chest.  The formula is perfect... hydrating, soaks in quickly and not greasy.  The smell is also incredible!  


There are my May Favorites!  What are some of yours?  Let me know in the comments!
