ULTA Review: Sensitive Skin Facial Cleansing Towelettes

ULTA Review: Sensitive Skin Facial Cleansing Towelettes | Style Through Her Eyes

It happens. You go to wherever you regularly shop for your makeup remover wipes and they're currently out of stock in the wipes you usually pick up. Sometimes it can be a stressful thing but it can also be a fun opportunity to try something new! This actually happened to me recently but being the massive fan of ULTA I am I decided to try their Sensitive Skin Facial Cleansing Towelettes. I immediately noticed that they were Paraben-free, oil-free, and fragrance-free as well as Hypoallergenic. They also contain provitamins B5 and E which sounded very much up my street.

ULTA Review: Sensitive Skin Facial Cleansing Towelettes | Style Through Her Eyes

So what's the verdict you ask? I can honestly tell you that these are the softest makeup remover wipes I have ever used on my face! I love the way they feel and the fact that they don't leave behind any gross residue on my face. I do wash my face after using any towelettes as part of my nighttime routine but I still consider it a plus. It also does a great job of removing all my makeup including my waterproof mascara. Often times if I'm not wearing as much makeup I can get away with cutting one of the towelettes in half which also helps to make the quantity last longer!

If you're in the market for new makeup remover wipes or feel like trying something new I'd definitely suggest these! They're $6.00 for 25 towelettes. Plus, there's a really good deal going on right now where you can get three of these packs for $10 equaling out to an $8 savings. I don't know if stores are also running this same deal but you can always ask a consultant and they just might price match it for you!

Tell me, have you tried these before? Which makeup remover wipes do you use? I'd love to know!

The Stranger Things Pins You Need

I'm a huge fan of the Netflix original series, Stranger Things. From the classic early 80's vibes to the music to the characters and even the waffles, I think it's all fascinating! My favorite characters are Dustin, Eleven and Steve. My favorite season so far has been the first. I liked the story and where the characters were at in the first season much more though I do prefer "nice Steve" over "mean Steve" (lol!) The second season felt a lot darker to me and I remember feeling much more unsettled. I'm anxious to see where the third season will take us and I hope it will primarily focus on another character or two besides Will. It's not that I don't like him but since the first two seasons heavily focused on him I would like to see things switched up a bit.

Another thing I love and collect are pins. I recently stumbled upon some awesome Stranger Things pins that I had to share with you! People collect pins in different ways. Some even use them as fashion accessories. I myself actually use them in multiple different ways. I have some of my favorite ones pinned up above my desk on my cork boards. I also have two backpacks filled with pins and buttons which can make quite a fashion statement. Or sometimes I'll wear my favorite denim jacket and place 1 to 5 pins in a tasteful way that looks geeky but also chic.

I really like this pin because this was a big moment for Steve. He had to take the lead no matter how afraid he was. From this point on he was known as the Demodog Destroyer! I've spotted this pin in stores but you can also order it online.

I find it so fun when something mean and scary is given a soft and adorable touch. This Baby Kawaii Demogorgon is too cute for words and would make a great gift for yourself (see what I did there?) or someone you know who loves the show as much as you do!

If you're unfamiliar with The Perpetual You, it's time the two of you got acquainted! The group of women who work together to make this magazine come to life are simply delightful and their positivity shines brightly through each of the pages that are meant to uplift and support all women. It's also much more than a magazine, it's a community where women can shop for inspiring treasures including products with the company's mantra, "Be You". Because you're amazing just the way you are! You can also join their private Facebook group to engage with other women around the globe, sign up for their mailing list, and use your unique talents to contribute to their magazine.

My lovely friend Casee who used to contribute to this blog has a wonderful piece in their June issue about the importance of breaking habits and allowing time for yourself to get out of the house and discover the wonderful things in the town you live in. She shares about her experience along with beautiful photos of the places she stumbled upon that she photographed by herself! One of the main themes in this particular issue is "Kindness" and she was sweet enough to include a photo of a tender moment between myself and one of my brothers. I was so surprised and honored to have been included!

It's been a delight to go through this magazine and I had a wonderful time doing a little photo shoot around it. Let's take a bit of a closer look at what I wore, shall we?

What I Wore

ROMWE Dress: Amazon
Franco Sarto Wedges: Nordstrom
Choker: c/o Magic and Manifest
Jason Wu for Target Clutch: Gifted

Would you believe me if I told you I ordered my little black dress from Amazon for only $16.99? I'm not even kidding. The quality is fantastic and I absolutely love the fluttery sleeves and how the dress moves when I walk or quite honestly twirl. It's pieces like these that have that extra feminine flair to them that are my favorite because I love the way they make me feel. I think it's important to feel comfortable and happy in what you're wearing. It can honestly be a huge confidence booster! I styled my new dress with my favorite pair of wedges, a simple choker and a clutch.

I envision this dress being perfect for all seasons. For example, in the colder months I could absolutely wear a pair of tights and either heels or boots with it. Plus, it's the perfect party dress! Get on this killer deal! It comes in a variety of different colors and is available in sizes X-Small - X-Large.

I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Until next time!

Disney Days: Birthday Celebration

Disney Days: Birthday Celebration | Style Through Her Eyes

My sister and I are Disneyland Resort Annual Passholders but my mom hasn't had a pass for over a year. We've missed going with my mom and likewise my mom has missed being able to visit the parks and have adventures with us. So, my siblings and I thought it would be fun to pitch in and get her a ticket for her Birthday! Last week we took her and it was just like old times! We had a blast shopping, trying new foods and going on some of our favorite rides. Here are some of the highlights of our trip!

We ate a Red Rose Tavern (previously known as Village Haus) for lunch. It's a Beauty and the Beast themed pop-up that can be located in Fantasyland across from the Casey Jr. Circus Train attraction. The decorations though minimalistic definitely stand out and are quite lovely. Their menu is also fantastic! I tried the Beast's Burger (I HAD to!) which is a sandwich made with a toasted roll. Inside is a 1/3 pound Angus beef patty, slow-cooked beef, Gruyere cheese, caramelized onions, lettuce, tomato and horseradish aioli. It was SO GOOD and I would absolutely order it again. I also tried the Grey Stuff because who wasn't curious about what that tasted like watching the movie as a child? It was a cold dessert (which I'm all about) made of white chocolate mousse and red velvet cake with a sweet raspberry center on top of a shortbread cookie. Mmm!

One of the things we love to do at Disneyland is just hang out and sometimes that means admiring the ducks and taking photos. Every time we go there are always new photo opportunities to be had! It's nice having an Annual Pass because you don't have to feel rushed to do anything. Some days you can go and chat while eating a delicious meal and not even go on any rides and be completely satisfied.

We are HUGE Star Wars fans and can't wait for Galaxy's Edge aka Star Wars Land to open next Summer! There is this beautiful diorama of what the new land will look like set up inside Launch Bay. The cast members that will be working there will be in character which will make the experience that much more immersive. Exciting, right!?

We went on They Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh ride which always puts a smile on our face. I've been on this attraction numerous times but never noticed Owl's house and how perfectly adorable it is. Afterwards we visited the Pooh Corner shop where I spotted this adorable new mug with art by the talented Jerrod Maruyama. All of his work is so chubby!

It was a warm day so I thought ice cream sounded divine! We headed to Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor on Main Street and I got the No Sugar Added Butter Pecan ice cream in a waffle cone. I had never tried this flavor before and absolutely loved it! I don't typically get my ice cream in a cone either and it was quite yummy!

Alice in Wonderland is one of my favorite Disney animated classics! I was gifted this Limited Edition Mickey hat by my parents several years ago but never wore it in fear of damaging it in some way. Well, that day I was feeling extra brave and whimsical so I decided to wear it! I just love the artwork by Darren Wilson.

I don't typically purchase apparel from Disneyland. In fact, I think before this new Spirit Jersey that I found and fell in love with I believe I had only ever purchased one other shirt. I decided to splurge because I couldn't pass up this fantastic design! I'm obsessed with it and love how comfortable it is. It's a unisex fit but the sizes do run bigger (I'm wearing an X-Small), and it comes in various colors and designs. You can find them in several shops throughout the park or on the Shop Disney website!

I hope you enjoyed seeing some of the highlights of our day! When was the last time you went to the parks? What do you like to do there? Please also feel free to inquire about anything I mentioned in this post.

Unseen Symptoms of Anxiety

Unseen Symptoms of Anxiety | Style Through Her Eyes

Recently my sister-in-law and I were talking about how you can't always tell if someone is experiencing anxiety. A lot of the symptoms are things you just can't see or even sense. Things like heart palpitations, cramping hands (yep, this is a thing), or even bad thoughts are just a few unseen symptoms of anxiety. It's almost overwhelming to think of the long list of things that people could be experiencing on a day to day basis and the fact that you may just never know. It could be someone you know and see everyday at school or work or someone you see once a week at the grocery store.

Want to know just how true this is?

My sister-in-law came with me to a doctor appointment I had scheduled that I was anxious about. It turned out that she was having not only a bad day but an overall rough week. She told me she was having some heart palpitations while we were sitting there in the waiting room and I had no idea. She looked tired but generally comfortable to me. I then told her how anxious I was feeling about the appointment and that my hands were cramping up and she too had no idea! Obviously she knew she was there for moral support but there was no way she could tell my heart was racing much faster than normal or that my hands hurt. She had already cried earlier and I was on the verge of crying. We both have anxiety so that just goes to show you that even two people who have the same mental illness had no idea that the other was experiencing symptoms of it. We briefly talked about how we were feeling, which often is a huge help especially if it's someone who understands what you're dealing with or sincerely wants to.

Tip: No one should ever have to feel alone in the battle against anxiety. If you don't know what to say to someone who is having anxiety the first step is actually just to listen and then ask them how you can make them or their surroundings feel more comfortable. You can also read 3 Things Not To Say To People With Anxiety, a post I wrote a few years ago where I talk about various phrases I have been told and how it made me feel.

I put this post together simply with the intention of wanting to help make you more aware that at any time someone you know, an acquaintance of yours or a stranger could be going through a difficult time due to anxiety. Friends, please strive to be kind and considerate towards others. Even if someone doesn't have anxiety they could still be heavily affected by something. We just don't know. That extra compliment, helpful gesture, or choosing to be patient with someone who is frustrating you with their attitude or words can make all the difference in their day. And let's be honest, everyone could always use a little extra happiness or boost of confidence. People are important and we should make each other feel that way more often.

Essie Gel Couture Review

Essie Gel Couture Review | Style Through Her Eyes

I tried out the new Essie Gel Couture this week and oh my shining, shimmering, splendid! It's honestly been a couple of months since I last gave myself a manicure so it feels quite nice to have super shiny nails right now. Firstly, I have to talk about the super chic bottles. I feel like the shape of them made Essie 10x more chic. The color I received is called Make The Cut which is basically a pearlized grey and beige aka "greige". It's a unique shade unlike any others in my current collection!

Applying the formula was so incredibly easy! This is also an important factor in choosing a nail polish for me because after all these years of painting my nails I can still make a bit of a mess. The curve-hugging brush makes it easy to apply and results in little to no mess outside of the nail. I honestly think I had like one spot to fix which isn't bad at all!

Essie Gel Couture Review | Style Through Her Eyes

I applied two coats of the gel couture and then added the top coat which is what gives the color its gel-like shine. The photos I included in this post really don't do it justice!

This new polish duo is said to last for up to 12 days and can be removed easily with an acetone-based remover. Some of the nail polishes I own last for about a week so I am anxious to see if this one will go beyond that. There are also over 100 colors to choose from priced at $11.50 each. The top coat is also $11.50 but once you have it you won't need to buy another one I imagine for a long time depending on how often you use it. If you're interested in trying out the new Gel Couture I would suggest picking them up at either Kohl's or ULTA where you can use coupons!
