So one of the best things about the Ulta and Sephora Beauty rewards programs are the free b-day gifts. Every year in your birth month Ulta and Sephora give out free deluxe sample-sized products!
Ulta gives 1 product that changes every 3 months. And Sephora has 2 options for the year. One is 2 makeup products and the other is 2 skincare products.
I finally got my gifts so I thought I'd do a little unboxing for you guys.
ULTA JAN-MAR 2017 GIFT
Ulta's gift this quarter is a deluxe mini of the Benefit Porefessional Primer. Ulta changes their gift every 3 months. The primer is the gift for Jan-Mar and then it will change for Apr-Jun and again for Jul-Sept and then one more time for Oct-Dec. They don't announce the gift until 2ish weeks before it's set to change.
I'm so excited to try this primer! I've heard a lot about it! I've been needing a new primer so this could not have come at a better time! I'd definitely be doing a review of this one in a few months!
SEPHORA 2017 GIFTS
I'm so excited for the Sephora makeup gift this year! I'm really excited that I get to try both gifts this year! I always get the makeup gift but my mom has a Sephora card now and her B-day was on Valentine's day and she got the skincare gift for me. So this year I have the makeup and the skincare gifts!
Sephora Makeup Gift 2017
The Sephora makeup gift this year is a 2 piece Tarte set. A mini Tarteist Lip Stain and a mini of the Amazon Clay Blush. I've so excited to try Tarte! I've heard so much about the blush and lip stain! I can't wait to try them!
The shades in this set are exclusive to the Sephora b-day gift so if you like what you see go to Sephora and sign up for a card to get your gift. You can only get the gift in your birth month so if you b-day month has passed just give them the month you are there and then ask for the b-day gift.
Sephora Skincare Gift 2017
As I said my mom's birthday is in February too so she got the skincare gift for me! I haven't heard much from this brand but I'm excited to try it. My mom will probably keep the dark spot serum but I can't wait to try this moisturizer!
The gifts this year are awesome! I can't wait to start testing them! The Sephora exclusive shades look so pretty! And the Porefessional Primer has been on my list forever!
