My Ulta HAUL

So I was excited for my trip to Arizona this past weekend.  The trip to visit and spend time with my best friend and celebrate her Baby Shower. I also knew I'd get a chance to stop by an Ulta (or more) since there are so many Ulta's within the area, unlike here in San Diego.

I haven't really done a beauty haul video before, but I thought I'd share it since I was so excited to go to Ulta. I didn't have anything specific I wanted to pick up, but I just went in to browse. I really didn't NEED anything else, but of course I could always find something to buy. I purchased Exuviance Performance Peel, 2 Orly nailpolishes and 2 NYX products.

I have been noticing my skin on my face changing as I am getting older. Although I don't have acne scars or any real scaring, I have noticed dry skin areas and uneven skin tones. I decided to pick up Exuviance Performance Peel. $68.00

The creators of the original Glycolic Acid peel introduce a high performance peel that is safe and easy to use at home. The Exuviance Performance Peel AP25 contains a 25% blend of Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) and Polyhydroxy Acids (PHA) including Glycolic Acid, Mandelic Acid and Gluconolactone. Performance Peel AP25 not only works at skin's surface to exfoliate dead, dull surface layers, it also stimulates the process of cell renewal among all layers, to reveal fresher, healthier cells. With regular use, up to twice a week, this peel has been clinically proven to:
  • Refine pore size and smooth texture
  • Visibly diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improve clarity and brightness
  • Brighten and even skin tone
  • Provide an all-over healthy glow, suppleness and smoothness to skin

The Exuviance Performance Peel AP25 contains 12 peels (a 6 week supply), which can be used up to twice a week on face, backs of hands, neck, chest and body.

After 3 treatments of Exuviance, I have noticed a difference already! My face feels smoother, looks brighter and my uneven spots are lightening. So I'm excited to say I'm pleased with the results after a few treatments. Luckily I do not have sensitive skin. The activator pad gave a bit of a weird, tingly feeling, but it wasn't bad. It was recommeded to leave it on for 10 minutes and then to apply the neautralizer pad. Being that I've never had any type of chemical peel or extensive face treatments done in a salon, I think I will stick with this product. I will review again, after my 6 weeks.

The NYX Super Fat Eye Marker is a repurchase. I purchased this awhile back from the NYX website and fell in love with it. Although it's not "waterproof", it is smudgeproof and works great. I love it! I also repurchased the Jumbo Eye pencil in Black Bean. This is a must have pencil as well as Milk.

I also purchased 2 Orly nailpolishes in Green with Envy and Hook up. I've been addicted to the teals, and bright colors lately. I've never owned a yellow nailpolish, so Hook up was perfect. It's a sparkly yellow/gold shade and it's fun! Both colors will look perfect under my OPI Shatter!

Have you shopped at Ulta lately? What have you picked up?
Have you tried any of the products I recently purchased? What do you think about them?
