The countdown to the biggest savings event of the year has officially begun, and of course we already have our calendars marked for Ulta Beauty’s Black Friday sale. In terms of deals, it’s up there with the retailer’s ever-changing “Buy More Save More” sales, the Gorgeous Hair Event, or seemingly random markdowns just because. The beloved beauty boutique never disappoints its bargain-hunting customers.
We still have a bit of time before the sale officially starts. It’s slated to run online from November 20 (in-store shoppers will have to wait until November 21) through November 27. Look for deals of up to 50 perfect off from brands you’ve been waiting to save on all year. We’re talking IT Cosmetics, T3, and Wella, to name a few. Whether you’re in the market for your favorite hair essentials, the prettiest palettes, or new skin care, you won’t leave (or log off) empty-handed. In addition to the markdowns, when you spend $60, you’ll also get a free eight-piece beauty bag filled with minis from the Ulta Beauty Collection.
The hardest part of shopping is scouring through all of the wonderful deals, so we did the heavy lifting for you. Below, we plucked the most exciting discounts, markdowns, and must-click deals from the sale that will breathe new life into your beauty collection, no matter how big or small. Check out the Allure-approved picks that deserve your dollars this season.
This year, Ulta Beauty’s giving us the gift of great skin care at even greater prices. First off, the brand is reducing the prices of select cleansers, like the IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Cleanser above, to $15 — that’s nearly 50 percent off its original price. As if its price isn’t enticing enough, this gentle cleanser also has an amazing formula. It’ll wash and hydrate at the same time, thanks to the combination of hydrating hyaluronic acid, firming collagen, moisturizing ceramides, and soothing colloidal oatmeal.
All good on cleansers? Then treat your skin to a new moisturizer from First Aid Beauty. For the holiday season, the brand released a limited-edition version of its beloved Ultra Repair Cream infused with pink grapefruit for a fresh, awakening scent. And during Ulta Beauty’s Black Friday sale, you can grab it for over half off of its original price.
And of course, what skin-care routine is complete without an indulgent face mask? During the sale, you can grab select masks for $30, including Peter Thomas Roth’s Cucumber Gel Mask (originally $52). This gentle option is infused with cucumber extract for a soothing, calming, and hydrating feel.
