Ulta Beauty Break Schedule and 2019 Offers

Is it time for an Ulta Beauty Break? Every time Ulta releases a Beauty Break in 2019, I will update this article. Ulta released 61 Beauty Breaks in 2018. View that article to see when they released or what they were if you are trying to predict the next release for a similar period in 2019. That brought us to an average of 1.17 a week. I do not know what the Beauty Breaks are in advance, so this article is only for tracking. Subscribe to Ulta emails to make sure you get notified directly. Beauty Breaks get posted in reverse chronological order. Look at the date and time before trying it, because it will not work if the offer expired. Add the Beauty Break to your cart along with a qualifying purchase, and the cost should drop to zero. Popular Beauty Breaks are known to run out of inventory before the window expires.

2019 Ulta Beauty Event Calendar

I have one timeline where I list all major: deals, coupons, GWP, Sales, promotions, and Events. Those who want to see an overall idea of what to expect this year should stop by. See where these Ulta Beauty Breaks line up with others on the calendar. You can also visit my Ulta retailer page to see active and upcoming offers of all types.

Beauty Breaks

What is a Beauty Break? It is a GWP with a short return window. Most Beauty Breaks are only available for 4-6 hours. Each Beauty Break offers a gift with a specified minimum purchase. While most Beauty Break offers get emailed, I have caught a few that were not. This means I can miss some (and so can you). The usual schedule is Wednesday morning from 8am-12pm. In 2018, there were only 10 Wednesday mornings without a beauty break. We got 19 on other days with Monday taking the spot for the most common shift.

Offered Outside of Wednesday

I will update this number every time I see a Beauty Break on any day other than Wednesday.

    Ulta seems to be pretty generous with the Beauty Breaks so far this year. The one from Benefit on January 21 was fabulous!

    Yes, I love the Beauty Breaks. I did not even see that one until after it was over, but I already own all the products and would have passed anyway.

    Well, I like to plan my orders in advance, and wait for a Beauty Break that I want. It’s tricky that the Benefit one was on a Monday. I’m looking forward to trying out the Hoola bronzer, and that makeup bag is just so cute! Thanks for doing your blog, BTW. I love that it is so Ulta friendly!

    Ulta is one of my favorite stores, so I focus on it a lot. Hoola is one of my favorite bronzers. I hope you love it as much as I do.

    The Rituals Beauty Break was when I discovered the brand. I really like it.

    I am in love with the brand as well.

    Girl…Are you really going to say that last Wednesday was without a Beauty Break? I think the all-day gift bag event with three generous options more than made up for it. Technically, yes, there was no 4- to 6-hour Beauty Break, but I think it’s because they did something superior in its place. Your thoughts/reasoning? TIA!

    A Beauty Break and a GWP bag are two different things. For the sake of properly tracking each, I will not label them interchangeably. I do note in the Beauty Break article when a GWP bag takes its place though.

    Makes sense, thanks!
