My happy place for Ageless Beauty With Ulta

Ulta is one of my happy places. It’s one of my favorite places to shop and probably the store I go to most often. Ulta has come a long way since it began and now carries just about every brand I crave. It’s the closest store to my home and the parking is great so I make sure that I go there whenever the mood strikes. For the month of November they are celebrating Ageless Beauty, which I consider to be perfect for me. Almost every product on their Ageless Beauty section on has a great gift with purchase along with it which, of course, makes it more enticing. Following are 9 items I either have from Ageless Beauty or want. Why not find out about these and see which ones would take you to a happy place. — Marcia

1447636462_2293860__detail_?1447636462Philosophy Glowing Days Ahead Set –  this $89 set is packed and ready to give for a Christmas gift. Philosophy is one of those brands that has so much appeal and is sure to bring a smile to anyone you gave this to. It contains travel sizes of some of their most coveted products: Purity Made Simple Cleanser, Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash, Microdelivery Peel, Step 1 & Step 2, Renewed Hope In A Jar, Hope In A Jar Night, Time In A Bottle Facial Serum, and Time In A Bottle Facial Serum Activator. There’s also a FREE 3-pc Skincare Gift with any $50 Philosophy Skincare purchase which you could keep or share.
1447636398_2276871__detail_?1447636398Hada Laba Tokyo Introductory Kit – while there’s no gwp with this it is on sale for only $15.99. I picked this to share because this is one of my favorite brands. I don’t buy drugstore style skincare often but since I’ve reviewed Hada Laba Tokyo, I’ve bought every product again. I love that they have an introductory kit so you could try this fragrance free great brand. Inside this gift box are travel sizes of Hydrating Facial Cleanser, Skin Plumping Gel Cream, and Ultimate Anti-Aging Facial Mask. This is a great buy for trial or for travel.
1447636329_2293339__detail_?1447636329StriVectin Skin Renewing Favorites Collection –  is a wishlist item that I really want to try. It’s $89 but this gives you the opportunity to try this luxury skincare to see if it’s for you. Now that I’ve had the opportunity to try StriVectin myself I want to delve into it more (and more). This kit contains SD Advanced Intensive Concentrate for Wrinkles & Stretch Marks (2.0 oz.), Eye Concentrate for Wrinkles (0.25 oz.), TL Advanced Tightening Neck Cream (1.0 oz.), Intensive Illuminating Serum (0.25 oz.). There are actually two gwp with this set. In store you should receive FREE deluxe sample SD Advanced Concentrate for Wrinkles and Stretch Marks 1 oz, while online only is their FREE StriVectin 3-pc Sampler and Cosmetic Bag with any $89 StriVectin purchase.
1447636258_2286461__detail_?1447636258Rodial Dragons Blood Discovery Kit –  do I want this $49 kit for the products or the name?? I’m not sure but I read really good things about this Rodial line and what better way to try it than a discovery kit? Inside you’ll find deluxe travel sizes of Dragon’s Blood Cleansing Water (3.4 oz.), Dragon’s Blood Hyaluronic Tonic (1.7 oz.), Dragon’s Blood Sculpting Gel (0.30 oz.), and  Dragon’s Blood Hyaluronic Moisturizer (0.34 oz.). Will I look be more hydrated using this kit? Only one way to find out!
1447636170_2241146__detail_?1447636170Bliss Fabulips Treatment Kit – is a kit of products that I’ve considered many times. My lips are an area of concern as they seem to be shrinking into my face. I can’t afford shots to make them look better plus I’ve seen so many bad cosmetic surgery jobs that I am not going for that. Instead for $45 I could try a kit that contains some of Bliss’ best sellers and get a gwp of a deluxe sample Triple Oxygen Mask with any Bliss purchase

  • Foaming Lip Cleanser, to lift impurities (0.24 oz.)
  • Sugar Lip Scrub, to gently exfoliate (0.5 oz.)
  • Instant Lip Plumper, to visibly volumize (0.06 oz.)
  • Softening Lip Balm, to soften and moisturize (0.12 oz.)
1447636103_2293434__detail_?1447636103Algenist Wink & Kiss –  I love the name of this kit and I love Algenist. That makes it easy. I’ve always said that Algenist’s Complete Eye Balm is a favorite and this kit would get you a deluxe travel size of it plus it contains Complete Lip Renewal Balm which I’d love to try. For only $25 you could buy this and also get a gwp of a deluxe sample Retinol Firming and Lifting Serum with any Algenist purchase. I say you can’t miss this one! That’s a lot for the money.
1447636031_2266976__detail_?1447636031Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels ($30) are already a favorite of mine. I pamper my eyes and these help me do that. They are easy to use, travel friendly and with 8 separately sealed packs inside they really aren’t that expensive. And to sweeten the deal they have a gwp of Icelandic Relief Eye Cream with any Skyn Iceland purchase. I’d buy this if I didn’t still have half the packets left.
1447635966_2288457__detail_?1447635966Michael Todd Sonic Clear Cleansing System – you’ve heard me talk about this several times. Ulta has this in two colors on their Ageless Beauty page – this adorable floral or the original lavender that I own. But for $149 you’d get much more than the Sonic Clear System which will help exfoliate and cleanse, you’ll also receive Charcoal Detox Deep Pore Cleanser with pump (1.7 oz.), Honey & Oat Daily Gentle Cleanser with pump (1.7 oz.) and Jojoba Charcoal Face Scrub (1.35 oz.), These are not samples, these are the real deal. My favorite of those three is the Honey & Oat Daily Gentle Cleanser but I’ve used the others and they are great too.
1447635906_2278297__detail_?1447635906Foreo Lunanow why would I put another cleansing tool in here? Because these are both amazing and they are different. The Foreo Luna ($199) is amazingly gentle. It is great for a very light exfoliation but not as complete as the Michael Todd Sonic Clear Cleansing System. The Foreo Luna is one that you can use any day and every day because it’s not harsh. It massages and soothes and cleanses like nothing else. You can use it in the shower without a worry. It’s a great size for travel and it holds a charge for months on end. Plus it would make an elegant and luxurious gift for someone (including you).
AGELESS BEAUTY shares ideas from $8 to $449 so there’s something at every price range. The gift with purchases will only be available until November 28th so make sure you are shopping by then so you can get something extra for your money. Plus you do know that Ulta is the only site that gives you money back on purchases, don’t you? Right now I just have $3 waiting but I’ll hold off on using that until I accumulate more. It makes shopping at Ulta even better and makes me very happy!  — Marcia
