Sephora & Ulta Haul Update

Recently I did a huge haul with Sephora and Ulta where I wrote about all the things I wanted to buy.  A few things worked and a few definitely didn't.  So here are my reviews! 

Ps. I used Ebates to make these purchases and got money back.  You can too and get $10 immediately for signing up!


Moisturizer (Night Time) - I got a smaller size and it was $12, not worth it or the price.  Its a nice moisturizer but I dont wake up and feel like my skin is so hydrated.  I wouldn't recommend. 

Moisturizer (Day Time) - I do think this is a great moisturizer because its lightweight and soaks in so quickly.  It's great for my oily skin but Im not sure how hydrating it is.

Cleansing Sponge - I already had one of these but it's a little bit of a hassle to move it from my sink to my shower, so I love it SO much I got another.  Highly recommend, it deep cleans and it gentle.

Make up Remover Wipes - These were okay, I didnt feel like they got everything and it left a residue on my skin.  Good enough if you're in a pinch.

Spot Treatment - THIS BOTTLE IS TINY! I had no idea how small it would be.  I think it works great though and is lasting a lot longer than I expected. 


Primer - I love this stuff.  A little goes a long way though! I realize if I have more of a heavy hand it will ball up under my foundation or stick to my dry patches. But it does keep the oils at bay and thats all I can ask! 

Foundation Option 1 - Hated it, I loved the sample but this oxidized on my skin a lot and did not help my oily skin. 

Foundation Option 2 - I love this foundation, it looks awesome on my skin and helps my oily skin.  I try to sheer it out a little with a wet beauty blender so its not so thick. 

Brow Pencil & Finishing Powder - Just restocked and still love these products so I was happy to have more on hand! 

Date Night Ideas

Hey Everyone, so if you didn't see my Instagram post it was my anniversary with H this past Tuesday.  One of the things I gave him was a mason jar filled with date ideas and categories.

I told Henry to add some of his own ideas too by color.  I liked this because sometimes Im bad with spontaneous dates.  But this way I can say how much effort/non effort I want to put in by picking out the color.  I thought it was a cute idea because man sometimes anniversary gifts are hard!

What are some of your favorite anniversary presents?

PS. Here is the ring he got me. Its our anniversary date, how cute!!
