Say hello to Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty! From September 6th through the 26th, Ulta is offering daily special steals from all of their most popular brands, including Clarisonic, Butter London, and Philosophy! Refer to the fall beauty steal calendar above for specific product deal dates, and get free shipping on orders $50+. This year I was ecstatic to find Clarisonic Cleansing Brush Heads on the calendar (marking it for Friday, September 18th), since I swear by my Clarisonic Mia 1 Sonic Cleansing system. It’s literally saved my skin from so much grief, and I frequently alter brush heads a) because you’re supposed to switch them out every 3 months and b) because they keep coming out with new brushes that suit my skincare needs.
On September 18th, Clarisonic Cleansing Brush Heads will be BOGO, which virtually never happens, and Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balms will also be 50%. Plus, you’ll receive a free gift with any Clarisonic purchase of $149+ now through the 26th. It’s basically Christmas for our faces.
The only products that are ineligible come from the Luxe brush head line. Although I’m sure they’re fabulous, the Clarisonic cleansing brush heads which yeild the best results for my skin have always been the Acne Cleansing Brush Head and Deep Pore Cleansing Brush Head. Since I’m Italian and have hormones with a mind of their own, these are the best at preventing and masking breakouts, since they have unique gradation of bristle firments for optimal results oily, acne-prone, and uneven areas of your face . When my skin is discolored, I immediately switch to their Sonic Radiance Brush Head, which is made of plush filaments that remove sebum and surface-level pigmentation to diminish the appearance of hyperpigmentation and dullness— two adjectives you don’t want used to describe your skin.
If you’re unsure which Clarisonic brush head is right for you, I recommend starting out with the Normal Brush Head, Sensitive Brush Head, or Delicate Brush Head. Since the Clarisonic system is designed to go beyond cleansing by using sonic technology to gently (and deeply) cleanse pores of environmental toxins, makeup, and bacteria without abrasion or harsh chemicals, it’s better to start simple. The system prides itself in removing greater than six times more makeup and actually increasing product absorption, making skin more receptive to skincare ingredients, so you can experiment once you know how your skin reacts to the treatment.
If you’ve tried the Clarisonic Facial Sonic Cleansing System, what brushes do you recommend? Be sure to mark your calendar for the 18th to capitalize on this super rare buy one get one deal. You’re the best, Ulta.
