What to Buy at Ulta If You Only Have $20
Our Picks from the L'Oréal Portfolio of Brands
We’ve (mostly) all been there. After popping into a local Ulta to restock on a beauty fave that’s run out, you leave with two bags full of products—most of which you already own or don’t really need at the time. Can you blame product junkies though? The beauty mecca is packed to the brim with the latest and greatest in makeup and skin care! While it’s easy to spend your entire paycheck during an Ulta run, it’s not as fun afterwards when you’re stuck with the guilt of your impulse buys. That’s why we’ve put together a list of some of the best beauty products at Ulta—from the L’Oreal portfolio of brands—priced at $20 or less. With these must-haves—from cleanser to moisturizer with SPF—shopping for beauty products on a budget has never been easier!
Dermablend Smooth Indulgence Redness Concealer
This green-tinted liquid concealer blends easily to help neutralize and conceal red skin imperfections like blotchiness and blemishes. Smooth it on over your imperfection(s) before applying foundation to help further camouflage the area of concern.
Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water
For a multi-tasking cleanser that’s suitable for all skin types, look no further than this cult-favorite micellar water that can refresh skin, remove makeup, and lift away dirt and impurities. The result is perfectly clean skin that’s hydrated without harsh rubbing and tugging. Since there’s no need to rinse afterwards, Micellar Cleansing Water is also a great option for traveling or while on the go!

These daily peel pads—formulated with glycolic acid—help resurface dull, uneven tone and rough texture to reveal fresh-looking skin and visibly reduce the appearance of wrinkles over time. One jar contains 30 pre-soaked pads, which are easy (and gentle enough) to use after cleansing and before moisturizing each night.
