There are plenty of good reasons to love holidays, but some major sales might just be one of the best parts (though we'll never complain about a day or two off from work). Ahead of the Fourth of July, the Ulta Summer Beauty Sale is one we're confident you won't want to miss. From now through July 4 at midnight, you can shop over 30 pages of beauty products up to 60 percent off, ranging from skin care, hair care, and makeup.
But given that the sale ends tomorrow night, we've called out a handful of our favorite products from each category to cut down your browse time in half. Oh, and don't worry about any codes at checkout, Ulta has done all the work for us, with adjusted prices already set in place.
Andalou Naturals Pumpkin Honey Glycolic Mask (Was $15, Now $11)
While it may sound like a seasonal product, this pumpkin mask is available all year-round. Packed with an all-star brightening lineup — including vitamin C, manuka honey, glycolic acid, and, obviously, pumpkin puree — it works to slough off dead skin, leaving it refreshed and glowing One Allure editor noted seeing acne scars lighten and an overall brighter complexion after using one to three times a week for 10 minutes.
SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Cleanser (Was $9, Now $7)
Just a few swipes of a cotton pad soaked in this cleansing water is all it takes to remove dirt, oil, and even the toughest waterproof makeup — without stripping the skin or causing irritation.
Babo Botanicals Sheer Lip Tint SPF 15 (Was $10, Now $6)
When you're so focused on protecting the skin on your face and body, it can be easy to forget that your lips need sun protection, too. This hydrating lip tint not only offers SPF 15, but a pretty wash of color — somewhere between a "your-lips-but-better" color and a wine-like red — so applying throughout the day won't feel like a chore.
Yes To Cucumbers Facial Towelettes (Was $6, Now $4)
These oil-free facial cleansing wipes are perfect to keep in your bag always, but especially during the summer when sweat, dirt, oil, and smudged makeup is at an all-time high. The hypoallergenic wipes lightly hydrate and soften the skin with a cool to the touch feel and refreshing cucumber scent. The packaging also snaps shut, so the cloths won't dry out over time.
Hempz Original Herbal Body Butter (Was $20, Now $13)
Made with 100 percent pure hemp seed oil, coconut oil, shea butter, and cocoa butter, this all-over-body cream soothes dry skin without making it greasy. Plus, it's an Allure favorite, with one editor noting it smells way more like cucumber and jasmine than "your stoner college roommate," in case you were wondering.
Eyeko Me and My Shadow (Was $25, Now $10)
Imagine this: A waterproof shadow-liner duo with a built-in blending brush that allows you to create the smoky eye of your dreams with a quick flick, swipe, and smudge. Sounds good, no? The Eyeko Me and My Shadow pen does just that. And thanks to its long-lasting, crease-resistant finish, you can apply and touch-up on the go.
Real Techniques Ultimate Base Set (Was $20, Now $12)
We're big fans of the drugstore-favorite brand Real Techniques for consistently making super-soft, user-friendly, and inexpensive brushes. This ultimate base set is no exception, making for a really solid trio of essentials including the expert face brush, deluxe concealer brush, miracle complexion sponge, and even a sponge stand.
Nyx Away We Glow Illuminating Powder in Summer Reflection (Was $10, Now $7)
Packed with four shades of peachy, creamy pressed powders, this highlighter goes from matte to soft shimmer onto the skin. Choose to wear each tone alone or layer them together for a dreamy, perfect-for-summer highlight.
Perricone MD No Makeup Foundation Serum (Was $60, Now $30)
When you want a minimal look, but aren't ready to commit to an actual bare face, this No Makeup Foundation Serum is the equivalent to hitting the jackpot. The peptide-packed serum offers SPF 30 and just enough coverage without making your face feel heavy or sticky. Plus, it's a full 50 percent off.
Redken All Soft Conditioner (Was $33, Now $15)
This tried-and-true conditioner (and multi-year Reader's Choice winner), gets its good rep for bringing dry and damaged hair back to life — mending frayed ends, managing frizz, and adding gloss and shine. Don't worry, the matching shampoo is on sale, too.
Not Your Mother's Repair & Protect Leave-In Conditioner (Was $9, Now $6)
This repair and leave-in conditioner goes above and beyond to make your hair more manageable by amplifying softness, maximizing smoothness, and preparing the hair for a gentle, healthy style. Bonus: It smells delicious.
