Is it possible to be in love with a store? It sounds so wrong, on so many levels, but I love Ulta! I went today (my second trip this week) to get some skin care products and got a ton of freebies. It’s my birthday so I got a free Ulta eye shadow palette with five yummy brown shades, plus $10 off anything in the store. The Mario Badescu skin care I purchased was supposed to come with a nice gift. They didn’t have the gift, so they gave me a whole bunch of great samples. They actually goofed up and gave me an extra skin care freebie package. I didn’t realize I got the extra package until I got home. Score one for me!
I purchased the following Mario Badescu items:
Oil Free Moisturizer with a 30 SPF-$28
Glycolic Foaming Cleanser-$16
Hyaluronic Eye Cream-$18
I got everything for $59! Woo hoo! I used my $10 certificate and rewards points to save $28! I’ll do a review once I have used the skin care for several weeks. I did a lot of research before my purchase, and everything I bought was highly rated. Given the moderate price of the skin care and the generous sizes, I’m excited to see the results. I assumed the Mario products were high priced since they are in the same section as the high end skin care at Ulta. This line has been around since 1967, so they must be doing something right. Stay tuned.
