Black Friday 2017 is upon us and ULTA is ready!! Now that I’ve had a chance to pour over the ULTA Black Friday flier, here are my top 10 picks for this year!
All of the product names are links that will take you to the permanent page on the ULTA site, not the sale page, so don’t be fooled by the prices. Don’t forget to bring your $3.50 off your $15 purchase coupon with you for additional savings! If you want to stay at home and shop in your pj’s, I won’t judge. If you add EBates to your computer, and activate the ULTA percentage, you’ll save additional money!
Let the shopping begin!
Valued at $75.70, this wicked fun advent calendar is one not to miss! I love NYX Professional Makeup, especially their lip products. The color selection and product formulas are of high quality which is a great thing since it is a really affordable brand! This advent calendar comes with the color that I wore on my wedding day, Creme Brulee, aww… I have this one on my Christmas list…
Hubby, are you reading this??
We all need some “me time” during and after the holidays, so this is your go ahead to put this ultra moisturizing conditioner in your hair and zone out for a few minutes… even if your kids are banging on the door.
If you watched my most recent haul video, you’ll know that I got the Sebastian Re-Shaper Hairspray, and I love it! It really manages to get the job done without the icky, crunchy hold like I remember from the 80’s… eww. I love the Sebastian company, but this product is one of my favorites, hands down.
Well that looks delicious! A Frosted Pistachio bubble bath sounds amazing right now! There is nothing I like better at the end of a day, than a long, hot bubble bath. I love ULTA’s 3-in-1 Smoothie’s because let’s face it, I’m lazy, and if I can just reach over and wash my hair with the same great smelling potion I just put into my tub, I’m game! This also reminds me of my best friend’s dog, Pistachio, so she’ll be getting this for Christmas!
OGX has been one of my favorite hair care brands for years. They take really great ingredients, make amazing smelling products with them, and then they put them in super colorful packaging so I can smile when I get into the shower! I’ve even gotten my husband to use the Argan Oil of Morocco collection! I’m not sure if the Black Friday sale also includes the limited edition Kandee Johnson collection, but if it does… holy cow!!! Watch out!!! My daughter and I are in love with the Sparkling Cider, so we’ll have to stock up on the whole collection before it runs out!
This product, gives me chills. It is so cool, like an ethereal pudding for your eye lids. When you apply these mystical beings on your eyelids, they make your eyelids look wet, but they aren’t! Go ahead and find a YouTube video on these babies. Go ahead, I’ll wait… It comes in eight stunning colors, my favorite being Oil Slick, a “sparkling chameleon” color. I also have Unicorn and Mermaid on my wishlist, because… Unicorn and Mermaid… Duh.
I have about six tubes of this mascara in my “extras” drawer to have on hand in times of eye makeup crises. No joke. My daughter loves the waterproof one so much that if I dare take it from her, she will hunt me down. I don’t blame her. When you’ve found “your” mascara, you shouldn’t let anyone take it from you. Even your mom. This set also comes with the Mascara Melt-Off, which I use every night to remove my face. It’s got a tiny little wand that gets right to the base of your lashes and gets the day off. No more itchy eyes in the morning!
So I couldn’t find the actual link to this product on ULTA’s website yet. It seems to me that you get 14 small sample sizes of some of their best selling men’s fragrance, and then you get a $15 gift card to spend on the one that you like best in the near future. When I can get the details on this, I will add an update with the specifics. I picked this because my husband loves to smell good, and he’s also into trying different fragrances, so I think this would be perfect for him.
Again, not finding this specific set yet on ULTA’s site, but I can tell you that Mario Badescu is my go-to skin care line, and has been for years. This set appears to contain the Facial Spray with Aloe, Cucumber and Green Tea, the Enzyme Cleansing Gel, and the Botanical Exfoliating Scrub. I carry either this facial spray or the Rosewater one with me everywhere I go. On top of being really great for your skin and able to set makeup, I use it when I’m having a panic attack and need a second to re-group. I love the Enzyme Cleansing Gel as well, but I have heard that people with pineapple allergies have had a reaction with this, so just be cautious. I have not tried the Botanical Exfoliating Scrub yet, but I will now!
Philosophy is one of those companies that I allow myself to splurge on once in a while. They have great skin care items and fragrances. I purchased a travel size of this exfoliating wash several years ago, used it up right away, and loved every minute of it. If you have a Clarisonic brush, or something similar, this would be a great product to use with it to really get in there and clean your pores out. The web site lists the 8oz. bottle for $28, so the 12oz. bottle for $15 is a great deal! This bottle will probably last me the whole year.
According to ULTA’s website you can shop online starting at 5PM CT on Thursday, November 23rd and shop in store starting at 6PM on Thursday. It also says that store hours vary, so when you’re making your game plan, make sure to check with your local store first! All pictures are straight from the ULTA Black Friday website.
Make sure to check back in a few days for my Cyber Monday picks!
