ALL THE THINGS YOU SHOULD BE BUYING AT ULTA

I’m a platinum member at Ulta and if you are too then until tomorrow you can get 20% off your entire purchase. They have tons of brands that are usually excluded from discounts so it’s hard to even find things to buy there sometimes. Although this time I did discover that some bigger name brands that are on the exclusion list were actually 20% off as well such as Urban Decay and Smashbox! Not sure if this is because the discount is only for platinum members, but either way you can find out by shopping online and putting things in your basket and then adding the discount code to see if they’re eligible. Usually┬áthough everything on the exclusion list isn’t eligible for the discount so I rounded up some great products from brands that will always be 20% off.

ARDELL–┬áFalse Lashes

I have eyelash extensions now, but before I used to always wear false eyelashes because mine are stick straight and are hard to curl. These Ardell lashes are really affordable and have tons of different styles. I personally like the wispies.

BABY FOOT- Original Exfoliant Foot Peel

I heard about this awesome foot peel awhile ago and as soon as I saw pics (seriously google it and go look at the images) I knew I had to buy it and see for myself. Funny thing is, I STILL haven’t tried it ­čśé I get pedicures pretty regularly so I think I just always forget about it. I’m determined to try it out soon though. I think I’d be great for in-between pedicures to save money or if you got a guy at home that refuses to get pedis you should have him try this.

BATISTE-Dry Shampoo

I’ve been trying to find a more affordable dry shampoo than the one I was using that works really well and this is it. The dry shampoo also comes in plenty of different scents, but I usually just get original. It does come out white, but all you need to do is fluff your hair really well with your hands and it comes right out. I did decide to try their brunette version and I’m not sure if it needed┬áto dry first, but I ended up getting it all over my shirt ­čś│ So just stick to the regular kind. Oh and you can find this brand at T.J. Maxx sometimes ­čśŹ

BIORÉ

I love everything about this affordable brand especially the charcoal products.  The Self Heating One Minute Mask is probably my favorite. It really does heat up and leaves my face leaving clean and fresh. I also really like the Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strips to clean out all my pores. 

CETAPHIL

This brand is great for sensitive skins and i’m currently using their moisturizer because it has SPF 30 and doesn’t leave my face very greasy (although I am in the process of testing some new ones that’ll hopefully be even better). This is a great moisturizer though at a great price.

CLEAN & CLEAR- Persa-Gel

I’ve been using this over-the-counter acne medication since high school. At times I’ve needed to get prescription stuff when my acne would get worse, but I’d always end up going┬áback to this because it works quickly and doesn’t irritate my skin very┬ámuch.

EYLURE- False Lashes

This is my favorite false lashes brand. It’s a little more expensive than Ardell, but I think they’re a little better quality too. I used to wear the No. 100 for an everyday look and their Vegas Nay collection is awesome for a more dramatic look for the weekends. I really like the┬áBronze Beauty Lashes.

FEELING BEAUTIFUL- Face Masks

I love to buy these cheap masks and throw them in my toiletry bag when I travel. My faves are the Avocado & Oatmeal Facial Clay Mask and the Charcoal & Black Sugar Facial Polishing Mask.

GARNIER- SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Cleanser & Makeup Remover

I love using micellar water because it cleans your face without drying it out like over-cleansing can do. Garnier also makes it in a travel size and just came out with a version for oily/sensitive skin.

HASK– Hair Masks

These little hair mask packets are another thing I love to throw in my travel bag. I especially like the Monoi Coconut Oil Nourishing Deep Conditioner Packette and the Argan Oil Repairing Deep Conditioner Packette.

HOLLYWOOD FASHION SECRETS- Silicone Coverups

I’ve posted about these before. If you ever go without a bra, you’ve got to buy these.

HOT TOOLS-┬áNanoCermanic 1.25″ Flipperless Curling Wand

This is the curling iron I always use to curl my hair.

JAPONESQUE– Waterless Brush Cleanser

I’m really bad at washing┬ámy brushes often so I bought this to use in between more thorough washes. It’s not a very big bottle so I only use it on my eyeshadow brushes when I’m changing colors. It works quickly and really well.

KENRA PROFESSIONAL- Platinum Blow-Dry Spray

I’ve posted about this already and I can’t live without it because of my long, thick hair. If you have long, thick hair too than you shouldn’t be living without it either.

NAILTIQUES- Formula 2

So at one point I decided to try to save money by┬ádoing my own nails, but it was so hard because my nails were so thin and would always break. My friend told me about this and it’s pretty awesome. It really helped strengthen and grow my┬ánails. Unfortunately, I went back to getting my nails done cuz I was terrible at it ­čśČ

NEUTROGENA- Pink Grapefruit Body Wash

I used to get pretty bad back acne and this helped clear it up and I’ve used it ever since.

NYX COSMETICS

I don’t really use too many drugstore makeup brands, but this is my favorite. I’m obsessed with several of their lip products. Their┬áSoft Matte Lip Cream is great because it’s matte without drying out your lips. They have tons of beautiful┬ácolors, but right now my fave is Cannes.┬áSimply Nude Lip Cream has several pretty nude shades. I like Disrobed┬áand Sable. Their Butter Gloss is another one to check out.┬á

PANASONIC- Nano Facial Steamer at Home Spa Treatment

You guys already know how much I love my facial steamer! I didn’t even know they sold it at Ulta! It’s only online though, but it’s pricey so 20% goes a long way!

REDKEN

If you missed my hair post, go buy Pillow Proof Blow Dry Two Day Extender and Windblown 05 and go back and read it. 

BIG SEXY HAIR

Their dry shampoo is the expensive one I was trying to replace with Batiste. It does work a bit better and it’s on sale so I scooped it up today. You can also get great volume with their Root Pump Plus.

SHEAMOISTURE

Doing a post soon about all the different types of oils and how each of them benefit┬áyour skin. Start now with this┬á100% Pure Argan Oil┬áand you’ll have the softest and most moisturized skin ever!┬á

SNP- Sheet Masks

Omg these are the cutest sheet masks ever! I mean who wouldn’t want to look like a koala, lion, or panda! They have so many animals to choose from and i’m pretty sure I’ve tried them all!

SOAP & GLORY- The Righteous Butter

This thick cream always gets rid of any dry patches I have and smells great.

TONYMOLY

Um this entire brand! Everything is amazing. It’s a Korean brand so you could seriously pick up any item and there’s a good chance you’d love it. I have yet to try anything from them that I didn’t like. If you’re overwhelmed with all their products, first try┬átheir┬áBubble Mask Sheet,┬áMud Mask┬áSheet,┬áStrawberry Nose Pack,┬áand really any other sheet mask.┬á

WIGO- Wood Thermal Brush with Mixed Bristles

The large round brush is what I use to get volume in my hair.

YES TO- Face Masks

I love their Miracle Oil Brighten & Condition Argan Oil Mud Mask (this mask is how I became obsessed argan oil) and their Miracle Oil Calm & Soothe Primrose Oil Mud Mask.
