BOXES FOR THE NON-COMMITTAL SUBSCRIBER: ULTA 1 TIME PURCHASE BEAUTY BOXES OVERVIEW

0Keeping up with the All Good Things Must Come To An End theme, this is the last post in my short series Boxes For The Non-Committal Subscriber. Well, maybe. I’ve been loving these boxes, so I’m really hoping that these stores come out with more of these in the future. I will be the first to jump on board!

+ Links may be affiliate or referral links. All items purchased by me unless otherwise mentioned. All opinions are my own.

This post is about the Ulta 1-time purchase boxes. Ulta released three boxes (that I know of, but they do tend to have a habit of sneaking more boxes out, so let me know if you’ve spotted more!)

They offer: Ulta Loves Pamper Yourself! ($9.99), Ulta Loves Skin Care Superstars ($9.99), and Ulta Loves Targeted Treatments ($9.99).

It looks like the Pamper Yourself box is sold out now. I’ll still be including it in this review so you have a basis to go on if they do release more of these in the future.

We are going to start with the Ulta Loves Pamper Yourself! ($9.99).

All of these boxes show the contents on the front of the box so you know exactly what you’re getting.

This box includes:

+ Being By Sanctuary Spa Cloudberry & Lychee Blossom Body Lotion ($1.19 estimate based on full size). A unique blend of super fruity cloudberry and intensely juicy lychees. Filled with velvety shea butter, our unquestionably quenching body lotion leaves skin feeling uber soft, nourished for 24 hours and smelling good enough to eat.
+ Fizz & Bubble Spearmint Eucalyptus Bath Fizzy ($6). Fizz & Bubble Spearmint Eucalyptus Bath Fizzy features an ultra-moisturizing 8-Oil Blend that includes a carefully blended fusion of Aloe Vera, Coconut, Grapeseed, Sweet Almond, Olive, Avocado, Sunflower, and Jojoba oils and is completed with Epsom Salts, Vitamin E, and Mica Clay coloring that is stain-free. Free of animal ingredients and unnecessary chemicals. Made with natural and biodegradable ingredients. Eco-friendly. Not tested on animals.

+ The Body Shop Satsuma Shower Gel ($5). Create a zesty, invigorating shower experience! This refreshing, cleansing gel uses Satsuma peel essential oil to provide a natural citrus fragrance. The Satsuma Shower Gel is enriched with Community Trade Soya Oil from Brazil to repair the skin’s moisture barrier, thus helping restore smoothness and suppleness. The soap-free, lather-rich formula is less drying to the skin than soap. Complete your shower routine by exfoliating with the Satsuma Body Polish and moisturizing with the Satsuma Body Butter. Ideal for everyday use. Suitable for all skin types.
+ H20+ Beauty Specialty Care Hand & Nail Cream ($5.00 estimate based on full size). NAILED IT. The key to acing a first impression is a firm handshake and silky soft hands. This ultra rich cream, containing Silk Proteins, Shea Butter, and Vitamin E, smooths and hydrates hands, nails, and cuticles.
+ Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter ($4.00). Award winning body butter with softening shea butter and aloe vera. Smooth on a handful after your shower and you might swear you’re wearing velvet. Its alluring scent of Soap & Glory’s signature Original Pink Fragrance – combines fresh bergamot, mandarin, rose, jasmine, peach, strawberry, and soft musk & amber base note. Recommended for all skin types especially very dry skin, skin is left delicately fragranced, moisturized, hydrated and super soft.

This set has a value of $23.89 based on my calculations. I love the variety of products they included. This had a combo of old favorites of mine and new discoveries. I think the value is really nice too.Β  And it definitely helps that everything smells incredible!

The next box is the Ulta Loves Skin Care Superstars ($9.99).

This is a great and affordable way to try new skincare!

This box includes:

+ CeraVe Moisturizing Cream ($0.16 estimate based on full size). Developed with dermatologists, CeraVe Moisturizing Cream is a unique formula that provides 24-hour hydration and helps restore the protective skin barrier with three essential ceramides. The formula also contains hyaluronic acid to help retain skin’s natural moisture.

This non-greasy formula with Antioxidant-rich Goji Berry, Vitamins C & E, and Pomegranate, helps strengthen the moisture barrier to stop the cycle of dry skin. Instantly see and feel the difference of hydrated skin with a more youthful look day after day.
+ La Roche Posay Lipikar Balm AP+ Intense Repair Moisturizing Cream ($0.74 estimate based on full size). This gentle, lipid replenishing cream helps soothe skin, provides up to 48hr hydration, and is clinically shown to help reduce dry, rough skin.
+ L’Oreal Paris Skin Expert Detox-Brighten Pure-Clay Cleanser ($0.74 estimate based on full size). L’Oreal Paris Skin Experts created our 1st range of clay-to-mousse daily cleansers that leave skin looking perfectly clear. Each cleanser is powered by 3 different clays in their pure form and enhanced with a nature-sourced ingredient.

Formulated with hyaluronic acid and aquabioryl known to replenish the skin with hydration and form a protective film. Contains fortifying and soothing Vichy Mineralizing Thermal Water.
+ Olay Regenerist Whip Sample (free).

This set has a value of $26.53, which I think is great for the $9.99 cost. This is filled with old favorites that I have tried before and a clay cleanser that I have had my eye on forever. I’d definitely recommend this to a skincare junkie.

The last box that I have is the ULTA Loves Targeted Treatment ($9.99).

This is probably the set that I’m most excited about.

This box includes:

+ Freeman Beauty Infusion Revitalizing Pomegranate + Peptides Peel-Off Mask ($0.99 estimate based on full size). Energize your beauty routine instantly with a serum-infused peel-off gel mask, boosted with Peptides that help plump and increase skin’s resiliency.

Our masks are inspired by the beauty secrets of South Korea and are infused with pure & beneficial ingredients that target your specific skin concerns, leaving your skin happy, healthy and glowing.

This box has a value of $15.67 + the Nip + Fab product, which is decent. I’m pretty happy with this one though, it is filled with products that I’ve been dying to try, so this box is by far my favorite, even if the value isn’t as good.

FINAL THOUGHTS:

These were okay boxes. I do think the other boxes from Target + Walmart had a bit more variety and better values, but if you have an interest in the types of products available in these boxes, I do think it’s worth it!

Have you ordered any of these boxes? What do you think of these?
