Hello! Hope you're doing well! It's Sunday night and that time of the week that always feels a little depressing, especially if you work a regular Mon-Fri job. When I was little, I hated Sunday nights; I always tried to squeeze as much fun out of them as I could since I had to go back to school on Monday. That feeling has stuck with me, even when I was working in retail and Sunday nights didn't always mean I had work the next day. It's hard to explain, but it just feels like everything I do, no matter how productive or fun or important is a waste of my last few hours of "freedom".
Huh, I didn't mean to start this on such a depressing note! This is actually a very exciting post (though I suppose I'm pretty excited in all of them...) since this is my biggest Ulta haul to date! This month, starting on the 11th, they are having their Love Your Hair event; there are a bunch of great deals on hair care and there's a special sample/hair caddy set you can get for $5.99 with any $35 or more hair care purchase. I was happy to see I could still get the deal if I shopped online since I wasn't sure when I'd be able to get to my Ulta, nor was I confidant they would have what I wanted in stock.
I've never gotten such a big box before from a beauty store; I was actually really surprised since I didn't think I had order that much. I'm pretty used to places like Sephora using much bigger boxes than necessary and then stuffing them with kraft paper, but this box was pretty full.
Since I hit the $35 mark for haircare, I was able to add the hair caddy and sample set to my cart for just $5.99.
I also picked up some non-hair things as well, but they're a little less exciting. Covergirl/Olay was having a promo (actually I think they still are. I know the hair thing is going on all month, or as long as supplies last) where, if you bought $15 worth of products, you got a makeup bag with some products for free! the listed value of the bag was $25, so I figured why not? This was a very "yolo" order...
Inside the bag, you got two full sized products and two sad, little foil packets.
And that's my whole haul! In total, I only spent about $60 for everything here, due to a combination of some good deals and my accrued reward points. I actually really like the Ulta rewards system; I do like being able to spend my points on deluxe sized samples/kits at Sephora, but I also like the fact that my points become money I can spend on anything I want. I used to really not like Ulta, but the more I shop there, the more I realize it's a good partner to Sephora, especially when it comes to getting drugstore products and salon hair care.
Thanks for reading! <3
