I'm not the biggest fan of New Year's resolutions, but I like to think that as we enter the top of January there is no better time to try something new. If you haven't thought about what that something might be maybe I can inspire you. I look at every year as an opportunity to test out new products, specifically skin care because I'm always looking for ways to maintain a clear complexion.
While this task can seem like an easy one, it can also be pricey. Lucky for us, Ulta Beauty is starting 2021 with a sale that's all about treating our skin — meet the Love Your Skin Event.
The epic skin-care sale has started and runs through January 23. The best part is that Ulta Beauty is sharing all the deals for each day early and, folks, this sale is so good. Products from brands like Zitsticka, Clinique, Philosophy, and more will be up to 50 percent off on certain days of the month. To make it easy for you, we organized every deal by day. Here's what's on sale this week, plus a peek at the rest of the month. Happy shopping!
