Orange Cleaning Soap | Glycolic Acid Toner | Hydro Moisturizer with Vitamin C | Vitamin C Serum | Special Hand Cream with Vitamin E

A few weeks ago I shared the first part of my Ulta haul detailing my new It Cosmetics obsessions! You can read that full rundown, here. Today, I am sharing the second part which revolves around skin care. I chatted about how I am trying to “eat and drink myself pretty” by adding collagen to my routine on Tuesday. But, my hope is that with a mix of both internal and extremal remedies, I can continue to care for my skin in the best way. Since I already love the Mario Badescu face masks, I decided to try some more products from their line and I’ve been pleasantly surprised. I won’t bore you with a recap of each product but I do want to highlight three that I really love.

Ulta Haul: Part Two

Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner

Toner always gives your face that extra clean feeling after cleansing. The most notable point regarding this toner is that it doesn’t burn- which I like. Instead it leaves your skin feeling refreshed and cool. This toner is a nice balance for me as it doesn’t over-dry my skin!

Mario Badescu Vitamin C Serum

Okay, this is my favorite product out of them all. This serum smells amazing, absorbs into my skin well and leaves it feeling hydrated. I probably overuse this serum but I can’t get enough! Before bed I apply the serum to my entire face. I wake up with a glow that I didn’t notice when I wasn’t using this serum. In the morning, I use two small drops below my eyes that I massage into my skin from corner to corner. This keeps my eye area hydrated all day (which is where I always feel dryness first). Overall, if you’re going try just one product, I recommend this serum.

Mario Badescu Special Hand Cream with Vitamin E

Finally, it can be easy to overlook your hands when discussing skincare. But it’s SO IMPORTANT. I reach for this hand cream throughout the day to keep my hands hydrated! This non-greasy hand cream is a great addition to my bedside table. I apply this hand cream right before I go to sleep and it’s a relaxing cue that it’s bedtime. It’s under $10 and worth every penny!

As I am always on the hunt for a skin care regime that is worthy and affordable, I am glad I picked these products to try! Do you have any skin care favorites?
