Got SPF? ULTA Does! Here’s Where to Find All Your Summer Beauty Goods

2
The sun is shining, the patios are open, and the 40-degree days — knock on wood — are behind us. At last, it’s time to ditch the winter fragrances and load up on that SPF. And we know just the spot to do it. The West Loop’s spanking-new ULTA Beauty isn’t billed as a “one-stop beauty destination” for naught. (Seriously, it’s not just PR jargon.) At 10,000 square feet, the playground for prettiness stocks a whopping 20,000 beauty products. There’s BB cream from philosophy, hydrating masks from Dermalogica, cheek stains from Tarte, and summery scents from Marc Jacobs. And that’s just what we scored on our first visit.

“ULTA uses a ‘street of shops’ approach that showcases unique product areas such as fragrance, cosmetics, skin care, hair care, and styling tools,” said Amy Sattler, a rep for the company. “The setup provides an easy-to-navigate shopping experience.” And if you have any burning beauty questions, there’s also an in-house salon with licensed hairstylists and skin therapists on standby. So, clear out some space in your beauty closet and get shopping!
