Beauty Sale Updates & New Deals

Today I have some new beauty deals for you, as well as some updates on some existing deals, so let's jump right in!

There's a new Winter Beauty Essentials Box (pictured above) on the QVC site HERE for $19.96 + $3 shipping (regularly $24 + $3 shipping). This set contains all samples (no full-size items). Here are the sizes:

1-oz First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream
0.33-fl oz Purity of Elements Pore-Minimizing Clay Mask
0.2-fl oz Algenist Genius Ultimate Anti-Aging Cream
0.17-fl oz StrivectinLABS Extreme Cream
0.5-oz Dr. Denese HydroShield Hydrating Dream Cream
0.5-fl oz Josie Maran Argan Infinity Intensive Creamy Oil

The 1.0 oz. First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream (one of my faves; you can read my review here) retails for $6.50 at Sephora so if you break it down that way, it's like you're paying $2.70 each for the five other samples in this box. (Thanks to longtime reader Marcy for this tip!)

Other deals and updates:

  • Right now you can get free shipping on all orders (no minimum required) on the e.l.f site with code ybKtwnsk. I just tested it with some items from the What's New page and it works with those, too! I don't know when this code will expire so don't wait if you're interested. (Thanks to reader Tracey for the great tip!)

  • Now through 2/3 (or while supplies last) on the Urban Decay website, you will receive 5 samples plus a Distortion Stash makeup bag with any $50+ purchase (no code required). The five samples include 3 card samples and two deluxe samples (Revolution Lipgloss and All Nighter Setting Spray). Free shipping on orders $50. Don't forget to check out the Sale Page HERE.

  • L'Occitane is having a nice sale right now HERE with up to 50% off select items. Free shipping on orders $49+, and you get a free 4-piece gift (2 deluxe samples, one foil packet and a makeup bag) with orders $50+ with code FROST

  • Keep an eye on your mailbox for a coupon from Ulta that appears to be going out to select customers right now. Reader rubiashumbia received this coupon this week in the mail and it's for $10 off a purchase and it does NOT exclude prestige brands! As always, I do not know how Ulta determines who gets these magical coupons, so just keep your eyes open for it. (Thanks for that tip, rubiashumbia!)

Did I miss anything? If so, please comment below and fill us in! As always, thank you so very much for your awesome tips!


  1. Shy beam is one of the samples in the youyear Sephora code :)

  2. The ulta coupon expires on the 30th. I'm really hoping I'm dug out of the snow drifts in time to use it in store. :)

  3. ThE dermstore promo code doesn't work anymore :(

  4. I don't believe the dermstore code is working, I tried placing an order and no luck 😣

    1. It's working for me. Maybe you chose a brand/product that it doesn't work with? I am eyeing Dermablend Cover Creme and it's bringing it down to $27.30 from $39. It doesn't work on Lorac, Too Faced (I think), Clarisonic, BareMinerals, etc. It DOES work for Anastasia Beverly Hills, Beauty Blender, etc.

  5. I got a celebrity-sighting flutter seeing my name on the blog! I've plotted about a dozen ways to use that coupon + my points + a Christmas gift card. Geekily excited.

  6. I got the Ulta coupon as well. 10$ off any purchase. If your order is less than 10$ it turns into a 20% off coupon.

  7. FYI, if you own " Naked on the run", the Naked flushed set would be the same colors you get in the Naked on the Run palette.

  8. Illamasqua is currently on Hautelook, with both makeup and nail polish, and the nail polish is on sale for $5.00 a bottle. It's a flash sale site so this deal will only be in place a few days.

  9. I just ordered both of the new e.l.f. cream blush palettes! When they arrive, I may have to do a major makeup play date and swatch them all, along with the new WnW ones that I haven't opened yet!

  10. JUST4U25 works for 25% if the 30 is no longer working
