Mini ulta haul✨
Sometimes $58 can only get you one thing at ulta Today it got me FOUR 😌 Starting off with some skincare from indie lee I have never tried this brand before but I saw they had a clarifying face wash INDIE LEE - Brightening Cleansergot a trial size and that intrigued me into the brand then stumbled upon their INDIE LEE - Banish Stickwhich I think would be great for mascne since pimple patches don’t really work for me ! Also this cult favorite KOPARI - Coconut Lip Glossybut in the original coconut oil flavor super excited to see how this gloss is since I love lip care Lastly I’ve had my eyes on this product for some time now and the price is pretty decent alleyoop - All-In-One Portable Razorhonestly can’t wait to try this little bad boy out I recently started laser hair removal so this is perfect for touch ups and or underarms 😌 Can’t wait to review all these items on cherie!
Part II Empties - Repurchase?
ALL OF THESE I’VE REVIEWED BEFORE IN PREVIOUS POSTS SO PLEASE SEE THEM FOR MORE IN-DEPTH REVIEWS. (Except GR) Medik8 - HYDR8 B5 Liquid Rehydration Serum This HA is AMAZING! It feels like butter! HYDR8 has many great attributes but one that really makes me want to keep purchasing: 💦 Hydr8 B5 contains multiple sizes of hyaluronic acid. The smaller sizes are able to penetrate deep into the skin and draw hydration up from the lower layers. Larger sizes are too big to get into the skin’s network, but sit on top of the complexion acting as a hydration reservoir to continuously feed the upper layers of the skin with water. I can absolutely feel exactly where this touches my face and where it has missed. It’s so good! BUT do I need to spend $50 on HA? I’m just not convinced. I have another bottle I received free with purchase and I’m going to really watch and put it to the test to see if I can notice a difference between a $10 HA and a $50 one. ⭐️ repurchase - TBD GLOW RECIPE - Plum Plump Hyaluronic Acid Serum This was a mini size I added on a Sephora perk. I really liked it and decided to purchase the full-size when I got 20% off. This HA has multiple sizes of hyaluronic acid as well. It absorbs nicely without leaving any sticky residue. When I am working with HA I’m looking for them to add a fair amount of hydration to my skin. I have very fine lines in my forehead and when my skin is dry they are noticeable. As soon as I add HA they are almost undetectable! So HA is a favorite of mine! ⭐️ repurchase - undecided INDIE LEE - Brightening Cleanser A cleanser I’ll always keep in stock. I’ve used this for years. love that you can leave this on for an extra 10-20 mins to use as a brightening mask! ⭐️ repurchase - Yes! FARMACY - Honeymoon Glow Serum I’ve been using this for 2.5 years and have yet to find something I’d give it up for. I’ve talked about this serum so much (and their other products) people came to know me as the “Farmacy girl.” It’s the one product I could never give up! 👊 ⭐️ repurchase - hell ya! There ya go, all my empties over the last 5-6 months. I probably had more but I can be bad at remembering to save my samples/minis to review. ❤️🍒
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On another skincare related note, the Sephora Favorites Crush-Worthy Skincare set is really good. Here are a few tidbits from it that I'm particularly excited about (alas, Tom Ford is not part of it).⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Volition beauty Snow Mushroom Water Serum - Super moisturizing! Used this after a good exfoliation and it left my skin feeling soft and hydrated. Wrinkles hate hydration.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ glow recipe Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturizer - If this one hasn't come across your radar yet, well time to get new equipment. It's almost cult-status with how many people love the cooling gel texture with all sorts of good nutrients locked in. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ indie lee Rosehip Cleanser - One I've been wanting to try for a while! It's great for sensitive skin, and packed with all the good vitamins your skin wants. While my skin isn't sensitive, this cleanser did leave it feeling fresh and clean :)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Last night's skincareroutine was focused on nourishing and hydrating: indielee rosehip cleanser: I really like it so far; it's a gentle low foam cleanser secretkey starting treatment essence: I've been frantically doing the 7skinmethod with this to finish it off, not because I dislike it but because I have a short attention span mamonde Ultra Moisture Skin Softener: this moisturizes pretty well but I feel kinda meh about it Dermapeutics Vital C: Empty!! I finished this gentle vitamin C (SAP) and hyaluronic acid serum that I found at #tjmaxx for $7.99 and I highly recommend it! TheOrdinary Alpha arbutin: like the texture much better than the niacinamide from the brand oneoseven coreflex cream essence: like this a lot so far, very nourishing and rich, perfect for people like me who need a little anti-aging! neogen white truffle oil drop in serum: enjoy this so much! Light but very moisturizing. Great for those who want to try an oil but worry it will feel too greasy. thesaem Chaga anti-aging emulsion: quite rich and nourishing for an emulsion! I notice this helps my skin stay more moisturized over a long day than if I just use cream. ladykin Vampir cream : you know I love this. Mixed with two drops of biossance revitalizer oil: not sure how I feel about this yet; maybe it was too much after such a hydrating and moisturizing routine as I felt it didn't absorb as well as I'd like.
Old versus newbie cleansing oils!
🎁The Boscia makeup breakup cool cleansing oil was the first one out of the two I bought and it helps clear the look of skin-clogging impurities and makeup without leaving an oily residue! It really helps with pores and dryness. The texture of this is a nice lightweight oil that gets all of my makeup off! I absolutely love using this at night and I got it about 10 months ago in a set from Boscia! It is very hydrating, didn’t break me out, and I saw good results in my pores after using it. I would certainly recommend this to others that love to use cleaning oils to remove makeup, it really gets the job done! It is worth the $32 for 5oz which is alot of product! 🎁The tatcha pure one step camellia oil cleanser is the one I got after the Boscia and is used to completely take of your makeup before you use your actual cleanser! This will completely take of any makeup, full face or just if your wearing a little bit. It completely takes off any eye liner and mascara as well as any waterproof makeup leaving your skin so silky and soft. This is not harsh at all on any type of skin, it is good for all skin types even sensitive skin! I first tried this last December because I had received the tatcha bestsellers set for Christmas with four minis and I absolutely feel in love with the cleansing oil. It can be a solution for dryness, fine lines and wrinkles, and dullness as well as uneven texture! The texture of this is a very rich oil that really moisturizes your skin. I overall really love this product and I will always be repurchasing, it’s definitely my go to makeup remover that I’ve ever tried! It has never let me down and always gets all my makeup off, and does everything that I would want a makeup remover to do. I have been using this for about a year so I have used this tons of times before giving this review! It was definitely hydrating enough and didn’t break me out at all! I saw great results from using this instead of other makeup removers that would make my skin red and were just to harsh when taking off my makeup. I would 100% recommend this to others because it completely takes off makeup and is so easy to use! And is great for every type of skin and has amazing ingredients in it! The full size of this is $48 for 5.1 oz of product which is so worth it because you only need a little bit to get all of your makeup off so it will last you forever! I really hope this review helps someone out if you’re deciding to get this or not I definitely recommend! 🎁I bought the tatcha cleansing oil over the Boscia because I noticed that this one did a better job of removing my makeup! And it removed more advanced makeup like eyeliner and foundation! The Boscia was only good for natural and not a lot of full face makeup! It only removed the basics, where the tatcha removed everything! I also noticed that it cleanses my face more intensely then the Boscia, it removed more dirt off my face! The texture of the Boscia and tatcha were very similar they were both very liquidity! The Boscia one was a little more thin, but the tatcha one felt like a heavier oil! The smell was very similar to, very clean and fresh! But I think I would have to say that the tatcha was more effective to my standards! boscia - MakeUp-BreakUp Cool Cleansing Oil TATCHA - Pure One Step Camellia Oil Cleanser

I really hope this review helps someone out if you’re deciding to get this or not I definitely recommend! The first thing this product claims to do and does it right is ✅to remove makeup which is what this product does best, it melts off so easy! The next thing it does is ✅thoroughly cleanses which is amazing and it does this super well! The only thing it claims to do but doesn’t is to ❎reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, I haven’t seen any results in my fine lines when using this product at all!TATCHA - Pure One Step Camellia Oil Cleanser

I'm strawberry in love with you. Get it? Strawberry? So berry? Straw very? Strawberry. Um, nvm I'm sorry🤦♀️😅, lol! I'm SO VERY in LOVE with Indie Lee's Brightening Cleanser. And so is my mom, yay! I got her hooked on this product and now she is requesting I send her another bottle since she is running low on hers. Oh boy, what have I got myself into, right? Lol, it's ok though since I love her and it's my turn to spoil her back. 👸 So, that new bottle pictured is hers. I just need to mail it out. But, before doing that, I (ofc) had to take some pictures of it! Indie Lee recreated the cleanser and now it's a bit more strawberry-like in color. Nothing else has changed aside from the color though. Whew! The reason(s) why I'm in love with this cleanser is because, 1. I love the bouncy, jelly texture, 2. I find this cleanser to be perfect for mornings and also as a second cleanse in the evenings, 3. It's gentle & it leaves my skin feeling so hydrated, soft, and so clean, 4. I can SEE 👀 my skin looking brighter immediately after use, 5. You can use this as a quick mask, and 6. The SMELL! 🤤 I just love the delicious scent of this product. I think it's the perfect cleanser for anyone with sensitive, acne prone, oily, or even, dry skin. Just any skin, really! 🤭 I highly recommend it if you haven't tried yet!

Holifrog Cleansers Review
I have been using these @holifrog cleansers ever since I have received them from the generous package @pokepr gifted me. I have a pretty good review on all of these four cleansers now so here they are 🤗 🐸 Kissimmee Vitamin F Therapy Balmy Wash: I saw many people use this as a makeup removing balm and so that was how I used it. However, it didn’t really remove my eye makeup too well. It is quite balmy and thick but not like a cleansing balm. I have pretty oily skin and this just did not work for me. I noticed that after using this for three nights in a row, I noticed milia forming around my eyes and nose area. I stopped using this and gave it to my mom who has mature and dry skin. She loves it. 🐸 Tashmoo Water Lily Nourising Milky Wash: This cleanser is also geared to dry and dry-combo skin. It comes out like a thin watery lotion and I have to admit, it felt pretty good and gentle. I liked using this on days where my face felt pretty sensitive because it helped cleanse my face but also soothe and calm it. I was worried that it wouldn’t work for my oily skin but surprisingly, I didn’t feel any irritations or discomfort. 🐸 Shasta AHA Refining Acid Wash: This is cleanser contains AHA to fight breakouts, congestion, rough texture, and to clean pores. Whenever I had felt like my skin was experiencing, texture, I used this and I have to say, it really helped. I love using AHA for my texture and this cleanser was no exception. If you want to target texture, I highly recommend that you check this one out. It is BOMB! 🐸 Superior Omega Nutritive Gel Wash: This is for oily or oily-combo skin and is my favorite out of the bunch. It is a gel cleanser so it does foam a bit more than the others but not too much. It contains probacillus revive that enhance cellular renewal, lactobacillus to defend against pollution/bacteria/allergens, kombucha to brighten, grape seed oil to moisturize, broccoli seed oil for that OMEGA BOOST, and other ingredients to nourish and help heal the skin. I liked this one the most because it gave me that squeaky clean feel without leaving my face squeaky stripped…does that make sense? 🤣 *gifted but reviews are mine HOLI FROG - Kissimmee Vitamin F Therapy Balmy Wash HOLI FROG - Tashmoo Water Lily Nourishing Milky Wash HOLI FROG - Superior Omega Nutritive Gel Wash HOLI FROG - Shasta AHA Refining Acid Wash

Blume Daydreamer Face Wash
☁️ Blume Daydreamer Face Wash ☁️What is it? A calming, gentle, non- lathering cream cleanser (with a pump! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻) ☁️ Call Outs: Free of: Parabens, Sulfates, Alcohol, Silicone, Gluten, and Synthetic Fragrance. Vegan Cruelty Free ☁️Who’s it for? Suitable for all skin types. This is a great cleanser for dry or sensitive skin or anyone looking to calm down irritation or redness. This product does contain coconut oil and olive oil pretty high up on the ingredients list so if you are acne prone and sensitive to those ingredients this product may not be for you. Also if you are sensitive to essential oils this cleanser does contain lavender oil. ☁️What’s in it? This cleanser contains moisturizing emollient oils such as coconut oil and olive oil (these may not be the best for oily or acne prone skin but dry skin will love these). Additionally this cleanser contains skin soothing ingredients such as chamomile and grape seed extract as well as antioxidant rich grapefruit extract. ☁️My thoughts? I’ve really been loving this cleanser. Cream cleansers are my favorite and when they come in a pump, my head just about explodes. This cleanser feels a little more emollient and less...stiff? (For lack of a better word) than my other cream cleansers. The smell is a lovely light herbal scent and I do not find the lavender in here bothers me at all. This cleanser leaves my skin feeling soft and clean and not dry or stripped at all after using it.
