Goodies from Ulta
Look what you made me do, Ulta! ?
Remember exactly how I mentioned there’s a new Ulta in my town? as well as exactly how it’s barely a five-minute drive away from mi casa?
Ja dat weet ik. They ran a 20% off sale on whatever last weekend, as well as this is what discovered its method into my basket…
Ooh La La!
Lots of sunscreen as well as skin care as you can see. Yup, I still like makeup, as well as I was lured by rather a few things (like this combination as well as these cream shadows), however I resisted *this time* around since I’ve decided that it’s time to get serious about fighting the great fight against hyperpigmentation. If I’m going to go to the effort of doing retinol, Vitamin C, AHAs as well as BHAS, I’ve got to get the sun security part of the equation right, so sun security was my primary goal on this trip.
Side note: having a product game plan before beauty buying assists a ton. I’ve blacked out at Ulta as well as Sephora one as well many times, leaving with a basket of things I didn’t even plan on getting, as well as I understand I’m not alone in this either. having a plan stopped me from being lured by things I most likely don’t need, so I wholeheartedly suggest this strategy next time you head to the mothership.

Back to the sunscreen! What I truly desired was a deal with sunscreen, particularly a tinted one since I’ve heard that tinted sunscreens can assist medium as well as darker skin tones prevent hyper pigmentation.
I’m on a objective to keep the hyper pigmentation at bay.
The Cotz one is going back, unfortunately. I like exactly how smooth as well as fresh my skin looked after applying it, as well as I liked the depth of the tint (I couldn’t see it at all on my skin), however it made my deal with itch. ?
The tinted Cerave, though, is a keeper! The tint is a bit lighter than the Cotz one so I can see a slight cast at first, however it fades after it settles in.
I likewise like exactly how lightweight as well as moisturizing it is. only thing is…the tint scrubs off on my mask as well as clothes, so I’m going to utilize the La Roche Posay Melt In Milk sunscreen on days when I wear white shirts or tees (which I do often).
OMG, this is SO GOOD. The name “Melt In Milk” truly does it justice since it takes in incredibly quickly as well as completely, leaving behind absolutely no cast whatsoever. Plus, it’s moisturizing however isn’t sticky or heavy. I likewise like the amount of SPF security as well as that it doesn’t have a strong sunscreen-y scent.
Speaking of scents…don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind scented skincare at all. I just prefer that the stuff I wear on my deal with not odor like a margarita. however on beach days or fishing days or camping trips, I do like a summery, sunscreen-y scent, which is why I chosen up a couple things from sun Bum, including this SPF70 lotion.
Smells like summer
It smells like a coconut as well as pineapple smoothie, as well as it doesn’t leave a cast. I likewise bought the spray version since I’m truly trying difficult to get much better at reapplying, as well as I figure that having a spray may assist me stay motivated, since it’s quicker as well as easier to apply than the lotion.
In non-sunscreen news…I stocked up on the retinol cream I’ve been utilizing from Neutrogena, as well as I grabbed an old-school fave of mine by Proactiv.
Pimples as well as wrinkles… great TIMES.
I used this benzoyl peroxide cream back in my early 30s, back before I found Kate Somerville Anti-Bac Clearing Lotion. I still like the Kate Somerville, however they just keep jacking up the price! Last time I went to Sephora it was $52 (it was $39 when I started utilizing it back in 2013). I’m quite cranky about the cost increase, so I’ve been trying to discover an alternative… When I re-stumbled on this cream at Ulta for $35, I was stoked. I hope it still works for me.
Other stuff I chosen up: a bottle of Pattern leave-in conditioner as well as couple of Clinique liquid eyeliners in fundamental brown as well as black.
Waves for days
This liner truly is quite easy!
