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.

    • Used up: Sisley concealer foil packet - it is wonderful. It has an orange undertone to counteract dark circles. The texture is gorgeous.  Sisley Global Perfect (pore minimizing face cream) deluxe sample - it is rich and creamy but also has a powdery finish at the same time.  Caudalie VineActiv eye cream deluxe sample I finished a full size shower gel - Yves Rocher Apricot Rosemary. It is a 6.7 ounce size, and took me a month to use. I was excited to finish it. I have a Grapefruit Thyme shower gel of the same size, so I think I can use it up in the next month, along with paying off my credit card, which is now at $166. I'm also going to use this very cute little bottle of Pixi Rose Tonic, which smells beautiful.     
    • Well, let's start with the fact that finding an agile service is quite difficult. I have been living in California for several years and now I use the services of the guys from https://www.rapidus.com. Here deliver packages on the same day. I am satisfied, since I do not have to wait long for my packages and worry. I can always track my package and in case of anything, contact the courier, it is very convenient.
    • Hi everyone, this is Tess Applying eye shadow can be difficult at first.  It was almost impossible for us to master how to do it without proper step-by-step tutorial from someone who knows what they are doing. I have watched many videos of tutorials online but nothing can compare to this simple, clear-to-the-cut video here: https://dausel.co/oqlh26 Click the link above and you will immediately land on the tutorial, just click “I am not a robot” to continue and you will be on the best YouTube Tutorial video on applying eye shadow where it shows step-by-step on how to apply the eye shadow perfectly even if you are a beginner. I wish someone had showed me this video when I was first learning how to apply eye shadow because it could have saved me hour and hours of time and frustration. Again, you can watch the tutorial here: https://dausel.co/oqlh26 Hope it helps someone else as it helped me J Tess
