Ulta Beauty Breaks 2018

I track all Ulta offers, and this article will cover all Beauty Breaks for 2018. To see how many Beauty Breaks there are, I will number each one. Beauty Breaks are pop-up GWP offers. Most Beauty Breaks get released at 8am PST on Wednesdays. They usually run for 4-6 hours. Every time I see a Beauty Break, I will update this article. The better beauty breaks can disappear before I even wake up (West Coast) so please do not use this article as your only source of Beauty Break notification. If you have not already, subscribe to Ulta emails. Details on most Beauty Breaks get emailed.

Surprise Beauty Breaks (those typically offered outside the normal Wednesday schedule) are not always emailed. Most surprise Beauty Breaks happen on Monday mornings. Monday night is also a popular time for surprise breaks, but they can happen any day or time. The ones that are not emailed are only open to those lucky enough to stumble upon them. All surprise offers I’ve seen are below. My goal with tracking offers is to better predict trends, as many retailers including Ulta repeat offers around the same time each year. This means I can look at the 2018 offers to get an idea of when 2019 offers may arrive. At the very least, it can show me with certainty when a Beauty Break repeats.

Number of 2018 Beauty Breaks Offered outside of Wednesday Morning (updated as I see them)


Number of Wednesday Mornings without a Beauty Break (updated as I do not see them)


All Beauty Breaks for 2018 are in reverse chronological order. Add the Beauty Break to your cart along with a qualifying purchase and the cost should drop to zero.
