Ulta Beauty Samplers and Try Me Kits 2017

Ulta Kits (featuring products from other brands) are typically only released for major events, like The Love Your Skin Event that runs 01/07/18 through 01/27/18. There are 5 new kits discussed in detail inside the above article on that. For 2018, I am not writing a separate article for kits. All kits will go into articles for their corresponding event. Kits I purchase will get a dedicated article of their own. If you are looking for kits for a specific event (21 Days of Beauty, Gorgeous Hair, etc), type the year and event into the search bar. The article with the kits and all other information on the event should pop up.


I track all Ulta offers. Major promotions usually include at least one Sampler or Try Me kit curated by Ulta. Some events get multiples and there are times when an event does not get any. It is uncommon to see these kits outside an event, other than just before it starts or shortly after it ends. When I cover the events (in separate articles that I will link below), I will update details on new kits in this article. If a kit pops up outside of an event, and I notice it, I will list it below. These kits are almost always deluxe-sized items, but some drugstore brands include full-sizes. Although I have never seen a full-sized prestige brand in a kit, anything is possible. The size of the item is always specified in the product description, so you know what to expect.

Most kits have a value that is a lot higher than the retail price, but I suggest calculating personal value before purchasing any kit. It is not worth it if you are spending more than the value for the items you want to try, unless you are buying it with gifting in mind. Personal value is what the items you will actually use/try are worth, which excludes the ones you give or throw away. Even if you hate them, you get the value when you try them. You would not know you hated it if you did not try it, and there are not a lot of people you can give used items to. If I purchase any of these kits, I will link my review near the product description. Otherwise, I will usually not suggest getting them or not. I’d love to read reviews from people whether I purchase one or not, so feel free to comment that information below.

Ulta Beauty Breaks January, February, and March 2017

See 2018 Beauty Breaks

I track all Ulta offers, and this article will cover all Beauty Breaks for January, February, and March 2017. There are around 50 Beauty Breaks a year, so I want to split these articles into quarters. 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 am on the West Coast, so please do not use my article as your source of notification), I will update this article until the end of March. If you have not already, subscribe to Ulta emails. There are times when better Beauty Breaks disappear before I even wake up.

Surprise Beauty Breaks (those typically offered outside the normal Wednesday schedule) do not usually get emailed. They 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 2017 offers to get an idea of when 2018 offers may arrive. At the very least, it can show me with certainty when a Beauty Break repeats.
