The Ulta Birthday Gift for 2020 changes every month. I’ve decided to consolidate the Ulta Birthday Gift 2020 Reviews into one article this year instead of reviewing them separately. My sons and I get 2020 Ulta Birthday Gifts in January, February, and March. For the other months, I can only review the samples if I happen to own the products. A lot of people say it is a free gift, so they will just pick it up anyway. Ulta is out of the way for a lot of people, so I want to let you know if heading over to grab the gift is worth your time. Of course, my opinion may vary from yours, so I welcome all opinions below.
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 2020 Ulta Beauty Birthday Gifts line up with others on the schedule. You can also visit my Ulta retailer page to see active and upcoming offers of all types.

The Ulta 2020 Birthday Gift changes every month. If I do a review on a month, the gift will get listed below. I go over all the gifts (review or not), the details on how to get it, questions on the birthday coupon, and more in the Ulta Birthday Gifts 2020 article.
Ulta Birthday Gift 2020 Reviews
I will review as many of the gifts as I can. My sons and I get three. Even though I will not get the other nine from Ulta as birthday gifts, I am bound to own some.
Ulta Beauty Birthday Gift February 2020 Review
Benefit Cosmetics BADgal BANG! Volumizing Mascara Review
The second (or third depending on reward level) February 2020 Ulta Beauty birthday gift has a total value of $9.29. This is a sample, which is a little smaller than the travel size Ulta sells. It is a 0.1oz Benefit Cosmetics BADgal BANG! Volumizing Mascara. Once I get the official birthday sample from Ulta, I will add the Birthday photos and a new review here. Until then, you can click this link to see what my lashes looked like the last time I reviewed it. I doubt my opinion will change.
Ulta Beauty Birthday Gift January 2020 Review
Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II Review
The second (or third depending on reward level) January 2020 Ulta Beauty birthday gift has a total value of $16. This is a sample, but Ulta sells it in this size. It is a 0.24oz Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II.
I’ve finished a 0.24oz sample of this in the past, and I loved in then. What I love most about it is that it is thicker than most serums without being overly thick. It gives my dry skin an instant boost of hydration without feeling tacky or sticky. Thicker products at night are great for me, because I want my skin to soak up as much moisture as possible.
I told myself if I ever got multiple samples of this I would try to use it longer term to test its promises as a 0.24oz sample is not long enough to see if it has any long term effects in the skin. What that means for my fellow January birthday recipients is I will not know how efficiently it works long term before you need to redeem it. After using a 0.24oz sample before, I did not notice much of a difference in the overall appearance of my skin in terms of lines, wrinkles, age.
What I I did notice is it definitely makes my skin look brighter, and feel softer each time I apply it. In that sense, it gives a more youthful appearance. It’s like Cinderella going to the ball though. The effects wash away with the product. Still a nice product. Just not a miracle worker.
The serum is clear and while it is thick it is not so thick that it will feel tacky or sticky on the skin. It absorbs immediately. Skin feels instantly refreshed and moisturized. Dry skin or not, I would still add a moisturizer on top.
Verdict: If you’re under 25 (or 30 assuming you are genetically gifted), you could probably pass on this one. Otherwise, I would suggest giving it a try. While I do think skincare makes a great gift, I don’t think anyone under 25 really needs this serum. That does not mean you cannot get this serum and use it if you’re under 25. After all, it is free! Just keep in mind, no matter how old you are, you will not get any miracle results from 0.24oz of serum. This is just to show you short term results. You will likely need more time with the product or luck to see long term results before this sample runs out. Happy Birthday January Celebrants!
