October is barely over and it seems as if we’re already in the middle of holiday shopping season. In fact, there are so many early Black Friday sales going on right now, it’s getting hard to keep up. When we say we’re ready to shop till we (and our wallets) drop, we mean it. For the 2022 holiday season, we’ve already been blessed with Best Buy, Target and Nordstrom’s pre-Black Friday deals — and now Ulta Beauty has followed suit with their own limited time sale happening right now. If you’re wondering what’s worth getting, we’ve got you covered.

With the temperature dropping, we can expect our skin to get a little drier and our hair to feel brittle. Thankfully, there’s always a product out there tailored for you and your specific needs. In times like these, we turn to some of our favorite brands like Kristin Ess and Drybar, and true classics like Elizabeth Arden. And while revamping your skin and hair routine usually can lead to a pretty hefty price tag, these top-rated beauty products sold on Ulta Beauty are deeply discounted right now. We’re talking deals up to 50% off.

But hurry though! Ulta Beauty’s early Black Friday sale isn’t going to last long. In fact, the deals last through Saturday. You better get your shopping in sooner rather than later.

We’ve gathered the absolute best products from Ulta Beauty that are worth your buck, so check those out below! You can thank us later.
