Stella & Dot Clothing & Style Club

Who doesn’t love being a VIP? I get so excited when I realize I’ve got credits I’ve accumulated with Sephora and their VIB membership. Stella & Dot now has their own VIP club for those that love a great deal! Before I get into the details on it, did you realize that Stella & Dot has expanded into clothing now, too?

Check out a few of my favorite pieces right now…

tops3The Ava Tie Tank is my favorite right now. The gorgeous green color is the perfect pop of fun this summer. Grab a pair of bright statement earrings and a cute clutch (FYI that clutch is FREE when you join our Style Club, too) and you are ready to go. The side tie is totally on trend right now, too.


The Everly Tee is simply gorgeous. Her bell sleeves and gorgeous color works great for day or evening! Gold against this navy just completes the look. If you love that gold cuff above, its another option for FREE when you join Style Club!

The Gertie Top is the statement top of the season! I absolutely love the eyelet detailing with the bellow sleeves. It does come with the camisole underneath making it such an easy piece to toss on and look put together.

The Ordinary

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I ordered a few items from The Ordinary. This company has gained a cult-following because of their amazing products without the high prices. Their motto is “Clinical formulations with integrity“. They offer top skincare products for a fraction of the price of their competitors while using pure, high quality products. When I say they cost less, I mean $9.60 for Retinoid!

For the past three weeks I’ve tried a few of their products to see if they are worth the hype (*spoiler* they totally are). Here’s my thoughts on each of them.

#1. Granactive Retinoid 2% Emulsion. I spent a good hour researching their products on other sites and their own just to determine which I wanted to start with. This Retinoid product came up with top ratings across the boards. Other bloggers did the research for me, stating that this product costs least for the highest amount of Retinoid on the market right now.


The tricky part of using a variety of products at once is determining when to use what and in which order. If you need help, go to their Regimen Guide for details. Here’s the details on my first product:

Granactive Retinoid 2% Emulsion (Previously Advanced Retinoid 2%)

Targets Signs of Aging, Textural irregularities
Format Emulsion
Regimen Step Before Oils/Creams
Conflicts Do not use with other retinoid treatments.
Time of Use PM Only

I noticed a difference in my skin’s texture within just a few days of use. I love that it comes in a brown, tinted glass bottle. The bottle protects its potency so it will last longer for you. For under $10, its definitely a great buy!


#2. Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12%. All of the Ordinary’s products cut straight to the chase. There’s no wondering what’s in it, since their product name tells you! This one helps with sunspots and dull skin, which I was excited to use.  This product is part of their Vitamin C Collection, which is key for uneven skin tone.

Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12%

Targets Dullness, Uneven Tone, Signs of Aging, Antioxidant Support
Format Water Solution
Regimen Step Before Oils/Creams
Time of Use AM and PM

I’ve only used this a handful of times and already noticed a spot on my cheek has lightened drastically. For $12.90 this is definitely a product I’ll keep in my skincare routine.


#3. 100% Plant-Derived Squalane. This was the one product I wasn’t sure I really needed. I had read a lot of reviews telling me it was a “must” product from The Ordinary if you have dry skin. I struggle with combination skin– my chin is oily, but under my eyes is so dry. I decided to give this a try, having no clue what “Squalane” was. Well, let me tell you that this is my FAVORITE product of the three! Once I opened it and put a drop on my hand I knew I’d love it. Its an oil and you need very little for each application. I use this twice a day and just dab a small amount under my eyes. Its made a huge difference. I noticed my dryness around my eyes disappear after the first use. In fact, just last night I decided to try mixing some of this with my lotion for my feet, too. In just one application, my dry heels are almost healed. For only $7.90 I will be stocking up!

100% Plant-Derived Squalane

Targets Dehydration
Format Pure Molecule
Regimen Step After water solutions
Time of Use AM and PM
