Samples, samples, and more SAMPLES.
If you read one of my earlier posts, you may know that since moving to Wilmington, I discovered Ulta. Ulta is this great beauty store (similar to Sephora) that carries not only high-end brands, but also drugstore brands. They even have fragrances, nail polish out the whazoo and some of them even have salons and brow bars. Since discovering my love for Ulta, I have decided to do some of my Christmas shopping there. Now, I won't be telling you what I purchased because some of you guys may be receiving one of these items from me. ;)
Ulta does not only have a store in the town I live in, but they also have online shopping!! I love online shopping a little too much (at least, when I can afford it...which right now Christmas is the extent of that venture). One thing I love about ordering from Ulta online is that they send you a TON of free samples. Not only do they do that anyway, but when I ordered my items the other day, they were offering a free "goodie bag" of even more samples just for spending over $35 with them...(which let's be honest, is NOT difficult to do).
Therefore, I give you my plethora of samples haul.
The red bag is the goodie bag and the clear bag is the normal Ulta sample bag

Fekkai Protein Rx PM Repair Strengthener
Pureology Color Stylist Nourishing Nectar Sculpting Gel
Nick Yucca Root Conditioning Cream
I am a sucker for hair products, especially nourishing ones and all three of these sound like they will be great.
I plan on trying each and every one of these products and I will attempt to give a review of each one. I'm not sure how long it will take me to try them and how often I will review them, but I am excited to get to try all of these great products and give you my opinion!
One thing I will leave you with is definitely check out Ulta. If you don't have a store near you, never fear...I feel like most of the time I tend to get better deals and samples if I shop online with them! Also, their rewards program is great! I get $6.00 off my next purchase if I choose to use my points I have racked up. :D
