I love reviewing my empty products, because I usually know by the time I’ve finished something how I feel about it. Reviews based on first impressions can change, so empty product reviews are much more comprehensive. These are most of the items I finished during the summer of 2018. A few always slip through. For items that I neither love nor hate, I am always willing to try them again, but I will not seek them out. This generally means I will only try them again if they are: free, on sale, or in a set (sets are a great way to get a deal as long as the value of the items you want to try exceed the cost you are paying). Empties from my June, August, and October (since this went up later than usual) Foil Challenge are not here, because I wanted to avoid the redundancy. The pH of products I’ve tested this season are below. Visit the pH article for info on how I test and a list of everything I’ve tested.
A list of all recent Ulta Beauty Breaks.
Ulta typically releases a Beauty Break every Wednesday morning from 10am-2pm PST. A Beauty Break is a GWP that is only available for a very short period. There will be select Wednesdays where they do not release one and other times when they pop up at a different day or time, like Monday evening, Saturday morning, Sunday morning, and more. While Ulta does email (those who receive emails), these offers and others usually appear in the Gift With Purchase Section before emails go out. Emails stagger, so better Beauty Breaks may run out of inventory before some people receive their emails. People on the east cost have a better chance of scoring a Beauty Break thanks to the time difference. If you wake up and notice an incredible Beauty Break, do not sit on it. These Beauty Breaks never make it to the end of the timeline and weaker ones at times get extended past the deadline.
