After covering Ulta’s Black Friday sale for two years, I’m excited to see that many products from some of our favorite brands – like Tarte, Real Techniques, and Makeup Revolution – are up to half the price. If skin care is your thing, maybe now is the time to grab that expensive Vitamin C serum you’ve been thinking about for the summer. And there are plenty for sale to hydrate your skin for the coming winter months, like First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Ultra Repair Cream (a favorite of dermatologists and strategists) in a limited edition pink grapefruit scent.
Hair care is also on sale, and expensive tools like curlers, straighteners, and hairdryers are definitely worth a look. (As well as stocking up on my favorite Zitsticka button patches, I finally invest in the T3 hair dryer brush, which I have eyed all year round and which is the cheapest I have seen).
Along with finding all of the best on-sale products from brands we’ve written about before, I’ve included some of Ulta’s Holiday Edition sets, which make a great gift for anyone on your list (including you. -same). We’ll be updating this post regularly as new sales go live, and to make things even easier, we’ve broken the post down into four categories: Skin Care, Makeup, Hair Care, and Sets. gifts.
The strategist is designed to bring out the most useful expert recommendations for things to buy in the broad landscape of ecommerce. Some of our latest wins include the best acne treatments, wheeled luggage, pillows for side sleepers, natural remedies for anxiety, and bath towels. We update links where possible, but note that offers may expire and all prices are subject to change.
