Ladies, we all need beauty products, and when we’re running low on our favorite foundation or must-have moisturizer, our first impulse is to swing by the mall on the way home from work and restock at any cost. Let me tell you, you’re missing out! One of the best changes I’ve made in my beauty routine is buying beauty online. There are lots of benefits to buying beauty online including FREE samples, rewards points, and other online exclusives and incentives all without paying any extra for shipping and with the convenience of never making an extra trip to the store. Four of my favorite beauty sites to buy from are Sephora, Ulta, Bobbi Brown, and Bumble and Bumble. Each one of these sites offers FREE samples with every order and FREE shipping with every order over a certain minimum in addition to a NEW exclusive or incentive each week.

Ulta and Sephora are both meccas for any beauty essential you could possibly need. Ulta typically offers FREE shipping on orders over $50 and 3 FREE samples with every order, either fragrance, skincare, or a variety pack. Sephora also regularly offers FREE shipping for orders over $50 and 3 FREE samples. However, they provide a bit more customization with their samples by letting you select 3 samples of your choice from a selection of 12 products. The deals at Sephora don’t stop there! Become a Beauty Insider to accrue points toward FREE products and take advantage of an additional promotion at checkout with every order.

Two of my favorite beauty brands always have amazing incentives to order online. Both Bobbi Brown and Bumble and Bumble offer FREE samples and FREE shipping with every order. These sites change their online exclusives weekly and sometimes daily. Right now, Bobbi Brown is offering FREE Shipping and a choice of 2 FREE winter skincare duos on orders over just $30! And today Bumble and Bumble is offering 3 FREE minis and FREE shipping on orders over just $25, plus 2 additional FREE samples on orders over $50! As if you needed another reason to shop these brands, each of these sites offers yet another ultra convenient incentive: an auto-replenish feature!

So, here’s the first tip: don’t wait until your beauty necessities are completely gone to think about restocking. Take a little time to plan ahead. When you notice your signature scent or everyday eyeliner is beginning to run low, start to scour the sites daily to seek out the samples that best suit you and your beauty routine. Maybe you’ll find a sample of a product you already use and love. This could be prefect for traveling or slipping in your purse for a night on the town. Maybe you’ll find a sample of a product you’ve wanted to try. What better way to test drive a new product before investing in a full size container? When you see the samples you like, you’ll be ready to place your order! Next, don’t be deterred by minimum order amounts to gain FREE shipping. Beauty products are expensive, so it’s likely that just one will allow you to meet the minimum required for FREE shipping. If not, follow my second tip: try to stock up on multiple products in one order. This tip also requires a little planning and forethought, but it will help you avoid shipping costs and it’s easy to do on sites like Sephora and Ulta where you can order for your hair, skin, and nails all in one place!
