ULTA haul & product review

img_2017-02-11-202653

I went to ULTA a few days ago because I wanted to get an eye cream and an eyebrow pencil…I came out with a few extra stuff as well! Does that ever happen to you? Happens to me all the time…I’ll go in for one thing but come out with a few (maybe more than a few) extra stuff.

Look through the gallery to see what I go. I will be adding my thoughts on the products as well down below…

I had never tried the Murad Clarifying Cleanser before so I was excited to try especially since I like shopping more for skin care products than actual make up. Because I had never tried it, I got the travel size version first before I purchase the actual big size one. I have used a few times now and I LOVE it. I have been using it with my clarisonic and it has left my skin so clean but it does leave it kinda dry; it has salicylic acid acne treatment in it which usually dries out my skin. I feel a bit of a tingle when I wash it off my face and it feels so fresh to me.

I then wanted to get an eye cream and I have heard great things about benefit eye cream called its potent and I wanted to give it a try. Again I didn’t want to purchase the regular size since it was my first time so I purchased the travel size one which came in  box with a few other goodies. So far I love the eye cream, but my favorite I would have to say is the facial cream by benefit. It is so moisturizing and smells so good! I will for sure be purchasing the facial cream but may shop around for an eye cream…if you have one that you love please let me know in the comments below 🙂

I always go with Anastasia brow pencil for my brows…I was actually disappointed this time because I used it for two days and there was no more product left inside…usually these last me for a good few weeks!

I have been meaning to get a beauty blender but couldn’t find the original one at ulta that day so I ended up getting the sponge to contour with; but I love it for applying my foundation actually. I love that the bottom of it is small and fits perfectly in my fingers.

I have weak nails and so I got a nail harder nail polish to try out to see how I like it along with nail filer because I always lose those.

I have been into blow drying my hair lately rather than straightening it so I went ahead and purchased a new round brush and I love it.

I have been hearing a lot about the poo-poourri so I wanted to give it a try…first of it, it smells so good and secondly it actually works so woohoo!

What are some of your favorite skin care products???

 

Our trip to the Hearst Castle…

In 2013, my husband and I went to Hearst Castle for our 2 year anniversary. At this time we actually were not married, we were just engaged. I fell in love with the castle, so much so that we actually went back to take our engagement photos there before our wedding; I will actually post that video up another day!

If you have never been to Hearst Castle, I highly recommend you go. But if you do here are a few tips:

  • Try to avoid going in the summer time, our first trip was during the summer and let me tell you, it was so hot! There are no AC’s obviously, they just have portable fans throughout the castle which doesn’t help as much since everyone tries to stand in front of it.
  • Wear comfortable shoes and clothes! There are a lot of stairs like A TON!!!
  • Don’t schedule as much tours as you can! Hubby and I scheduled all 4 tours for the day! We barely made it to tour 4. They usually don’t refund you back when its so last minute, but they felt so sorry for us for booking all of them in one day that they ended up refunding us for the last tour since we were so exhausted!

Here is the video, I hope you enjoy!
