Ulta just kickstarted its annual Summer Beauty Sale, offering can’t-miss deals every week (from tomorrow, Jul 1st to Jul 15th).
And since we know first-hand how overwhelming Ulta sales can be (coz we want every damn product), we thought we could help you by rounding down some of our editors’ favorite picks.
If you just want to skip our picks and head straight to ULTA to stock up.
If you’re still bewildered, here’s what our editors picked for the sale:
It’s summer the girls are focused on hair growth! Here are our picks:
Name one person who doesn’t use Olaplex, and we’ll give you $100 (just kidding). The hair stylists- and HairTok-favorite brand has received so much praise that it honestly deserves a Hair Oscar or two.
And at the helm is the Bond Maintenance System that targets broken protein bonds in the strands caused by chemical processing, coloring, and more. In simpler terms, the entire line is perfect for any hair (3A or 4C) that needs a little (or a lot) of extra TLC.
Ulta’s currently having a 20% Off sale, so get your cards out because we predict it’ll be out of stock soon. You can purchase the whole set or get the shampoo plus the No.5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner, which is also on sale.
If your birthday wish this year is to magically wake up with thicker, fuller hair, then you need to get a bottle of any Mielle Rosemary Mint options.
The Strengthening Oil, for instance, is packed with scaling oils such as castor, jojoba, and rosemary oil that coat your strands and scalp to safeguard against moisture loss that can trigger dry, itchy and irritated scalp.

If you can’t be bothered with the tedious ten-step haircare routines, try the Camille Rose Hair Growth Bundle that volumizes, strengthens, and moisturizes your strands to give you the picture-perfect hair of your dreams!
It’s also having a Buy One Get One At 50% Off – Add To 2 Bag RN, so don’t skip that button, love.
We’re hydrating. We’re plumping. We’re all about glass skin! Here are our Ulta Beauty picks:
CeraVe’s newly launched sunscreen options are raising the bar for high-street SPFs, and luckily for you, they’re all strictly formulated with all skin types in mind (yes, including sensitive skin types).
So, make sure your skin gets all the sun protection it needs this summer by purchasing a tube or four (Ulta is giving a Buy One Get One At 40% Off – Add 2 To Bag offer).
The only thing worse than zits? The annoying dark spots and marks they leave behind.
Fortunately, this Good Molecules option is specifically designed to help fade those acne marks while also refining your skin’s look for a more radiant and youthful appearance.
But if you’re a sensitive skin hunnay and retinol is a no-no, Ulta also has a sale on the brand’s cult-favorite Niacinamide Brightening Toner ($14), the skin-loving Pure Cold-Pressed Rosehip Oil ($10), and the anti-aging the Daily Essentials Bundle ($24).
Ariel’s skin looks fabulous in and out of the water. Channel that radiance by getting yourself (and your baby) this Black Girl Sunscreen summer pick. The moisturizing sunscreen provides SPF 45 UVA-UVB protection and is water-resistant for up to 80 minutes.
Plus, it’s fragrance-free, paraben-free, leaves no white cast, and contains ingredients (aloe, squalene, and shea butter) that heal, moisturize and soothe your skin.
Show your lips a little TLC! Fourth Ray Beauty’s Lip Mask deeply hydrates dry, cracked lips with a blend of softening shea butter and nourishing, antioxidant-rich vitamin E to give you luscious, kissably soft lips.
Ulta’s is having a Buy One Get One At 40% Off – Add To Bag + Free Gift Offer RN, so don’t skip it. Fourth Ray Beauty has some cool coconut and watermelon options if strawberries just don’t do it for you!

Did someone say Rome goddess vibes? Snack, whole treat kinda mood vibes? Warm and ~sultry~ meets fresh and floral summer vibes? Come with us:
Already planning to bring this magnetic floral perfume on a late summer vacation to Rome. The newly launched Valentino fragrance features a trio of luminous Jasmine, powerful vanilla, and warm benzoin notes giving a seductive allure of warm wintery nights in the eternal city.
And after an hour, you can expect the spotlight to be on the heart notes of sweet bergamot, sensual black currant, and whispy vanilla – so a single spritz of this perfume goes a long way. No wonder they named it Intense.
