Small Ulta Haul and First Impressions

Leave a Comment

I recently finished up my daily moisturizer with sunscreen, so I went to Ulta to find something else to use. I was happy with my moisturizer (which I will feature in an upcoming empties post), but I just wanted to try something new. All of the Yes To products were buy one get one 50% off, so I started there. I've tried a couple of the Yes To Cucumbers products before, so I decided to try some other things. On that trip I ended up purchasing the Yes to Cucumbers Daily Calming Moisturizer with SPF 30 and Yes to Blueberries Deep Wrinkle Filler.

Sadly, the Yes to Cucumbers Moisturizer (not shown) just didn't work for me. The idea of a completely natural sunscreen is very appealing but doesn't work on my skin. It's too heavy and hard to rub in.

The Yes to Blueberries Deep Wrinkle Filler works well to plump up skin and add a little fullness. Applied after moisturizer, it claims to immediately reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. This product is nothing more than a gimmick, but it does have an immediate effect and feels nice on the skin. It is meant to be applied to small areas as opposed to the entire face. The consistency is thick without being too heavy under makeup.

On my next trip to Ulta to return the moisturizer, I decided to try the Olay Complete Defense All Day Moisturizer with Sunscreen SPF 30, Sensitive Skin. So far, this has been working out. It's oil free and is moisturizing without feeling too heavy.

My final product is the NYX Wonder Pencil in the color Light. It claims to work as a concealer, eye brightener, and reverse lip liner in one. I got it to use as a reverse lip liner. I love a red lip but have a lot of issues with reds feathering on me. I'm still working on finding the best way to use this. Look for a full review later.
