Ulta Free Sample Choices

Recommended Posts

I just went to the online checkout on the Ulta website and noticed that now instead of choosing 3 individual samples, you have to pick from three options: 3 Piece Fragrance Sampler, 3 Piece Skincare Sampler, or 3 Piece Variety Sampler.  Not sure how I feel about having to blindly choose samples.  Hmmmm.   icon_rolleyes.gif  Not sure how long they have been doing this, since I haven't ordered from Ulta recently.  At least they're free...but I still like to pick!

That does suck. : Part of the fun is to be able to pick the samples you want... on sephora they always have samples, but do they know you wouldn't prefer trying such and such perfume over another, even if there are so many perfumes?

 

If that's the case, I'd go for perfumes. They're always the most expensive of the samples, and I'd just resell them on ebay if that were the case. Mwuhaha.

Oh no :( I ordered for the first time ever (no ulta near me) and I just received my parcel today with the samples I chose. If it's any consulation, I wouldn't mind this option if they sent out a sample beauty bag with every order over $35... My sample bag was AWESOME, more exciting than the products I ordered! It made my birchbox look sad lol. That bag plus the 3 samples, I was on cloud 9! I'm a sucker for these types of things.

I just recently made my first purchase from Ulta and I liked the samples I got. I chose the Ulta brand choice and got a small face wash sample, a lotion sample that is 2 oz, which is one once smaller than a Bath & Body Works mini (so good size for a "sample") and a full size eyeshadow! (it was in a really great shade, Golden Olive I believe). I really loved that I got that eyeshadow free, that alone made it worthwhile, since it isn't even sample sized. Very happy when I opened it up and saw that as one of the "samples". They also put 2 or 3 of the paper perfume samples in my box.

I've been a huge ULTA fan for years...I'm a Platinum Rewards member and get free samples all the time! The trick is to wait until they offer some amazing GWP (gift with purchase), which they do frequently, and place your order then. Also look for items that have a bonus gift with purchase and you can double up!

 

For example, here's my latest haul from ULTA:

 

700

 

The only two things that I actually purchased are the Tarte Brazilliance Self-Tanner and the Miracle Skin Transformer concealer.

I ordered during a 'Free Beauty Bag with $50 purchase' event, AND the Miracle Skin concealer came with a 'Free 3-Piece Flawless Skin Set with any purchase.' Plus their usual small offering of samples that you can choose from. I got 3 little foil packets with the Variety Sampler that I chose.

 

There are some amazing things that came in the free beauty bag, Ojon hair products, Catwalk dry shampoo, Pacifica Body lotion, and lots more. And even better, I had a 20% off coupon, plus $30 in reward dollars...so my $77 order came to about $30 bucks!

I placed my order when they were doing a free Clinique perfume sample bottle with ANY purchase, plus used the $3.50 of $10, so even with shipping I paid about $15 for everything (2 nyx lipsticks, a lip liner & 2 ulta shadows, plus all the samples). I really like that even though I didn't pay for the $35 perfume sample, I was given rewards points for it!! I was surprised when my account showed 42 points instead of the 8 or so I was expecting.

    • My name is Amy. I am in my mid 40's (I hate typing that, btw) and I used to be embarrased to talk about my skin problems! I worshipped the sun as a teenager and was blessed with cystic acne. In my 20's, I never took my makeup off, nor did I much in my 30's. Because of my bad habits, my skin suffered , and it clearly showed! I have tried soooo many different creams, lotions, serums, devices and masks! I was about to give up! However, in December,  I started using a regimen that has improved the appearance of my skin beyond my beliefs!  My acne scars have become less noticeable. The texture of the skin on my face and neck has completely changed (for the better!). I will NEVER have flawless skin, but I am truly happy where my skin is today! If you can relate to this story, or if you feel like your skin is doomed, you are wrong. I am proof of that! :) I would love to talk to you about any problems or concerns that you migh have!  Us women have to fight to age together gracefully!! Have a great evening! AmyP

    • Hi guys, if you are not practising facial massage, you are missing a trick! Facial massage was fundamental in transforming my acne-scarred complexion, and healing the rosacea that blighted my twenties. I swear by it, and I'm always trying to educate people on the benefits of doing a simple routine in the morning or evening which will literally enhance your complexion overnight. No fads here: first records of massage therapy date back to 3rd century B.C. China, however, in modern times we have dismissed these ancient practises because they are not a quick-fix solution. On the contrary, dedicated facial massage provides long-term results if you incorporate it into your daily routine.  Over the last two years I have developed FACE SCULPT, an easy-to-follow series of facial massage exercises to lift, tone and sculpt the visage without the need for chemicals or devices. I have created 13 tutorial videos with catchy names and fun techniques to appeal to all, and be easy to remember. You can join my free FACE SCULPT group to learn my techniques www.facebook.com/groups/facesculpt and read my 10 years of research.
