So Many Skincare Essentials Will Be 50% Off at Ulta This Month
When Ulta has a sale, it goes all out. Rather than a single day or even a week of savings, right now, the beauty retailer is offering nearly an entire month of incredible deals. As part of its Love Your Skin event, Ulta is listing daily 50 percent off markdowns on skincare products from popular brands like Clinique, Mario Badescu, and Murad through January 25.
You’ll find price cuts on a select group of different products every day, but since Ulta already announced which items will be on sale—and on which day—you can plan ahead to make sure you don’t miss your favorites. Plus, many of the half-off products include a free gift with purchase. The catch? Each discount lasts just 24 hours, so you’ll have to act fast to take advantage of the low prices (and there’s no telling how long the most popular items will stay in stock).
So if you swear by Proactiv cleansers, you’ll want to be online January 10, and if you’re ready to give into the face massage trend, mark your calendar for January 19 to buy your own jade roller while it’s marked down. Since there are so many products to choose from and so little time to shop, we rounded up the best skincare finds worth buying on each day of Ulta’s sale event. Keep scrolling to get today’s deals and plan when to shop for the rest of the month, or head to Ulta for a full list of the daily discounts.
