As an esthetician, I am ALWAYS looking for the “Next Best” of skincare.I have seen this brand in Ulta for YEARS, and always wanted to try it, I just never ended up pulling the trigger.
I ended up purchasing a couple of the products a few weeks ago because of a sale at Ulta on the H2O+ brand. (So I thought, but it actually turned out that none of the products were on sale once I got to the register – don’t you hate that?) – So I ended up putting one of the products back that I didn’t absolutely need.
The worst thing ever is when you purchase skincare or makeup products that quite frankly, aren’t cheap, and you end up hating them. Who else can relate? Needless to say I spent nearly 40 minutes in the aisle at Ulta looking at and testing these products.
I bought two moisturizers from the line – one for nighttime and the other for daytime; the H2O+ Oasis Daily Defense Moisturizer SPF 30, and the H2O+ Oasis Ultra Hydrating Cream. Moisturizers, to me, are a true test of skincare because my skin is VERY (and I mean very) dehydrated, especially in the winter months. There were two product samples that came with the full-size products; the Infinity+ Chin and Neck Firmer and the Hydrating Treatment.
I am VERY picky about skincare and makeup products…Like beyond picky. Fiddling around with these in the store, they were both very creamy and truly seemed very hydrating. The only thing I didn’t like that I noticed right away (which is something that’s totally personal preference), was that the Ultra Hydrating Cream and Treatment were gel formulas. I don’t know why but gel just isn’t my personal favorite for my skin type, I prefer the product to be more of a cream rather than a gel.

Something that I really appreciated about this line when I was picking it out at Ulta was the fact that they do not use any Parabens, Mineral Oils, and Phthalates. They also have a very subtle fresh water scent that I absolutely love.
