The other day I had to do some traveling and the upside of that was I was going to the town about that has an Ulta. I ran out of my favorite foundation the Makeup Revolution Fast Base Foundation Stick. If you want to read my review you can find it here.

The only place I can find it is Ulta so I ran in for it, but I ended up trying another foundation.  I have been seeing reviews everywhere for the Makeup Revolution Conceal + Define Full Coverage Foundation and I wanted to see what I thought of it for myself. I’m going to do a full wear test for you guys. I will wear it at work, at the gym where I sweat my butt off and see if it holds up well and if it breaks me out. I have very dry skin so it will be interesting to see if it works well on me or not. I’ve never done a wear test for the blog so this makes me super excited

I use to use the Anastasia of Beverly Hills brow wiz and LOVED it, but I don’t like the price tag. So I decided to try out the Catrice Slim’Matic Brow Pencil.  The reviews are good on Ulta’s website and it was only 6 bucks.

I watch Cassey Holmes on Youtube and the Essence Volume Stylist 18 hr Lasting Mascara made her monthly favorites and she loved it. The price was incredible it’s only $4.99 and if it does everything she says it does it may become a staple for me.

The rest is skin care products and I’ll start with one that I’ve been using for the last 3 or 4 months and really love.

The CeraVe PM Face Moisturizer is my go-to moisturizer. I use it day and night and my dry skin loves it. I’ve taken it out of my skincare to see if it was really making a difference or not, and Y’all my face went crazy when I did.

I had a doctor recommend this brand to me a long time ago. They liked the ingredients and how gentle the products are. I’m so glad I gave this a go and it’s a staple in my skincare.

This next product I actually got at Walmart so I’m cheating a little, but I had to share it since I plan on doing a review for it very soon.

Like I said before I have very dry skin and I wanted a mask that helps treat my dryness. I do masks on Friday to treat myself after my last workout for the week. I plan on doing a post on my “spa night” treatments as well and Y’all I am so excited about that. Okay, back to the product I get sidetracked too easily!

The SheaMoisture Hydrating Mud Mask is an organic mask that is supposed to leave the face feeling hydrated and soothing to the skin. It claims to be a very restoring mask so we will see if these claims are true or not. The only thing I’m worried about is products that claim to help dry skin can be very thick and they tend to break my skin out. It’s like fighting two battles.

I’ve read a lot on how fragrances can be one of the reasons that lead to infertility. Now I know there are A LOT of reasons for my infertility, but anything I can do to help my body to conceive I’m going to. I know that I can’t take all fragrance out of my routine, but I thought I would start with my lotion. I still love my vanilla lavender body butter, but I am going to start using it only once a week if that. So to replace my body butter I bought the Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream it’s made for very dry and sensitive skin and it’s fragrance-free.

And there you have it my Ulta haul and all the goodies I got this week. I plan on doing a review on these products and update you on what I think. If you have tried any of these products let me know if you like them or not. What goodies have you got lately and what are your staples?

I hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday!
