(Updated with More Freebies) Ulta Love Your Skin Event Day 16 Deals are Live

Here's your daily reminder of all of the deals that you can snag both in-store and online unless otherwise noted.

PERSONAL NOTE: some of you like to know when I personally take advantage of these Beauty Steals, so I wanted to let you know that I'm definitely taking advantage of this one (I also bought the previous PTR peel pads and the Mario Badescu toner Beauty Steals). I have been searching forever for a good daytime moisturizer with SPF of 30 or higher (I have tried so many but just haven't found my holy grail yet), and I would never pay full-price for this one. So it's a great opportunity for me personally, and the reviews on the Ulta site look promising. PLUS, you get these two Exuviance deluxe samples with ANY Exuviance purchase right now, and then the Drybar and UD samples on top of that (links below).

PLATINUM MEMBERS: free shipping on all daily Beauty Steals. If you are having an issue with getting free shipping with a Beauty Steal below, please call Ulta customer service and they should be able to credit your account if you are charged shipping. Just be sure to mention the free shipping Platinum Perk notation on the top of this page.

Beauty Steals for Monday, 1/23:

Gifts with Purchase:
  • Some of you kindly let me know that you received an email from Ulta today (1/22) with a code for a free IT Cosmetics travel brush. I did not receive this code in my Ulta email this morning, but if you didn't check/read your email today, you should definitely take a look and hopefully you got the code!
  • If you like Anthony skincare, right now you will receive a free deluxe Exfoliating and Cleansing Bar AND a free deluxe Glycolic Facial Cleanser with ANY Anthony purchase. This works even if you just buy the Mint & White Tea Lip Balm with SPF 25 for $9. I personally own and enjoy this lip balm--I find it nice and hydrating and the texture/consistency reminds me of old school Blistex Medicated Lip Ointment (it's a thin, white, lotion-like consistency) but it sinks in well and it has a nice, minty flavor. There are 62 reviews of this product on the Sephora site vs. five reviews on the Ulta site, in case you'd like more info.
  • FREE with any $40+ online purchase: add this 2-piece Clinique Happy set to your cart and once you add at least $40 worth of other merchandise to your cart, it will go from $40 to FREE (NOTE: reader Leenie shared this tip and also let us know that she was able to get this freebie with just the $36 Beauty Steal today!)
  • FREE with any online purchase (no minimum required):  add this deluxe Drybar Hot Toddy Heat & UV Protector to your cart and once you add anything else to your cart it will go from $10 to FREE (Thanks to reader Sasha K. for the tip!)
  • FREE with any online purchase (no minimum required):  add this deluxe Urban Decay Primer Potion to your cart and once you add anything else to your cart it will go from $10 to FREE (Thanks to several of you here on the blog and on social media for the hot tip!)
  • FREE 27-piece skincare beauty bag with any $70 online skincare purchase (Thanks to several of you for the tip!)
  • (EXPIRED) FREE Sona Gasparian 11-pc beauty bag with any $75 online purchase (NOTE: you must enter code SONAGASPARIAN at checkout AFTER you have added at least $75 worth of merchandise to your cart and then this bag will go from $75 to free. Thanks so much to reader Kay Park for that tip--she let us know that Sona Gasparian mentioned this code in one of her YouTube videos)

  1. Also free this 2 piece Clinique set ... says after 40$ purchase but it worked with my only 36$ purchase for the deal of the day !

    1. Thanks so much, Leenie!!! Will add to my post ASAP! xoxo

  2. You need to try my holy grail sunblock for the face! It's DCL Super Sheer Sunscreen SPF 50 and it's $50 for 2.5oz but I always wait until dermstore has a coupon code to stock up. I've found it on HauteLook sometimes too. It has a matte finish and goes on beautifully under makeup and will hold up to any sun (I used it at the safari wild animal park in San Diego when it was 100+ one summer and it held up!!)

    1. Thanks for the rec, Sandy!! It is a moisturizer, too? I have a separate sunblock that I can use in addition to my moisturizer and foundation, but I prefer a moisturizer with SPF to help eliminate an extra layer of stuff on my face when the weather is warm. :)

    2. No it's not a moisturizer, so I put it on over my Sunday Riley Tidal Cream which is my moisturizer and then under my Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer before my foundation. And with my oily skin it doesn't feel like i'm caking on products on my face! Plus it has a matte finish which I LOVE so there's no greasy feeling

  3. Ulta is opening several new locations this month. You should look on facebook to see if any are opening in your area. The one by me is having their soft opening...when you walk in, they handed out a 20% off entire purchase coupon INCLUDING prestige brands and a 35% off at the salon. The coupon is valid until this Thursday and Friday is their grand opening. Do check on facebook or call the new store to see if they are doing this soft opening promo. Don't miss out the 20% off of everything!

    1. Great tip!! I heard that Ulta was expanding with more stores this year, and that's great to know that they're issuing those 20% off coupons. Whoo hoo! They opened a few stores here in SD in 2016 but I'm hoping for more in 2017! :)

  4. Did you see today's Ipsy offer?!

    1. No! OMG thank you so much!! Doing a post now! xoxo

    2. You're more than welcome! I don't think I've ever snagged a deal with that little hesitation before. I know it's one of your favorites, and I'm looking forward to trying it!

    3. Lol!! I do NOT blame you! That's so sweet of you to remember that it's one of my faves! I really do love this trio (especially that Mary Lou)! You are going to LOVE it! Thanks again for the fantastic tip! xoxo
