ULTA Skincare Haul // The Ordinary

I recently decided to try a bunch of new skincare products from The Ordinary. I wanted to order through ULTA, so I could gain the points for their point system. I had planned to do a curbside pickup, but my local store did not have a wide selection of the line, so I ended up just ordering online and having it shipped to my apartment.

I made a YouTube video showing everything I ordered, including a few hair products and some skincare samplers, but these are all of the products I ordered from The Ordinary.

I had heard awesome reviews about this skincare line and their prices are extremely affordable. I believe that all of their products are available for less than $15.

This post’s purpose is solely to share the products that I ordered. I am working on developing a solid skincare routine that I love and I am still looking at trying other products from other brands. My hope is that I will be able to share the products that are working for me in the coming month. For now though, these are just the products that I am trying.

To pick these products, I went to The Ordinary’s site and looked at all of their products and the different uses. I have both sensitive and dry skin, so I kept that in mind when choosing products.

This is the GUIDE I used!

I have been using these products for about a week now and I am enjoying them so far. I am excited to continue using them as I develop a solid skincare routine. Keep an eye out for that post within the next month!

Skincare Routine

Last fall, I came to the conclusion that I am too old to not have a consistent skincare routine. Truthfully, I have never had good skincare habits. Makeup wipes were as good as it got for a long time. It took me a while to find products that work for my skin. I have both… Read More Skincare Routine

Best Eyeliner Ever

I have worn eyeliner religiously longer than I have known how to drive a car. My mother might even joke that it is my lifeline. I have gone through just about every eyeliner on the market, but I always seem to come back to the same one. I even buy it in stock during ULTA’s… Read More Best Eyeliner Ever
