Holiday Haul| Ulta Edition


My name is Erricka and I am a product junkie.

Now that we got that out of the way.

Happy Thanksgiving Eve everyone!

I know I am on a no makeup buy BUT I have been taking advantage of all the great deals around natural hair as well as body products.

Lately I have been on an Ulta kick and have been making big purchases of natural hair and body products.

My latest purchase recently arrived so I wanted to dedicate one post to my Ulta purchases.

Also, this will probably be the first of many holiday hauls. I have one makeup haul but a majority of the items I picked up are gifts and it’s from E.L.F. so I don’t feel too bad.

Ulta was having a sale on Shea Moisture products and my first haul the sale was Buy one get one 40% off. I picked up 2 of the Shea Moisture Low Porosity products.

Baobab & Tea Tree Oils Low Porosity Protein-Free Leave-In Detangler


Low Porosity Protein Free Leave In Detangler

I’ve used this twice and it’s okay. I haven’t really used it as a leave-in but I will do a complete review of both products soon.

 Baobab & Tea Tree Oils Low Porosity Protein-Free Conditioner


I’ve used this twice and loved it. This will definitely be a repurchase.

That name is entirely too freaking long but I picked this up as a gift for my cousin.

On my second Ulta purchase Shea Moisture products were 40% off altogether so I picked up these items.

Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Grow Leave – In Conditioner

This is one of my favorite lines from Shea Moisture and sadly I have only tried 3 products from this line. So I picked up this leave-in conditioner to give it a shot. I can already tell I might not like this because I’m not a fan of leave – in conditioners that are in jars but I will give it a shot.

I have never seen this product anywhere and after watching another product junkie’s YouTube Haul I knew I would have to pick this up. It is a thicker butter but isn’t too heavy for my low porosity strands. I plan on using this to apply to my scalp when my hair is in protective styles. I picked up two of these babies because they were at such a great price.

I also picked up some of the Mommy line items to test out since I’m running low of my stretch mark butter.

THIS SMELLS AMAZING. Omg I’ve used this twice and I’m in love. Those Pistachio Oils…baybeeeee. The only negative is this is rock solid. I thought maybe it was because it was in my car for a while and it’s cold but nope. This thing is tough to get through.

I love body scrubs so I had to check this out. Again this smells is everything. I’m just worried I will go through this really quickly because I am heavy handed.

Shea Moisture Raw Shea Cupuacu Mommy Soothing Nursing Balm

I picked this up because I will be nursing with this baby and wanted to get a head start on picking up nursing products. This product had the same difficulty as the butter cream product. It is super hard to get out.

These next items were part of my black friday wishlist so I decided to pick them up during my second Ulta Haul. These products were buy 1 get one 40% off so I was able to save some coins on them. The only sad thing is the product that I really wanted to try is SOLD OUT but I’m eager to test out these products in between protective styles.

Maui Moisture – Nourish & Moisture + Coconut Milk Weightless Oil Mist

This smells divine and really is lightweight. My only warning is to be careful and don’t be heavy handed like me or your hands will be filled with oil.

Maui Moisture – Heal & Hydrate + Shea Butter Detangler Leave In

I love leave-ins. That’s basically the reason why I picked this up. I’m interested in seeing how this works out.

Maui Moisture – Smooth & Repair + Vanilla Bean Hair Butter

I’m on the hunt for the perfect hair butter for my low porosity strands and wanted to give this a shot. I’m also looking for a great hair butter for my son’s crazy strands as well so this will get a lot of use between the both of us.

Maui Moisture – Strength & Anti Breakage Rich Honey Conditioner



This is the line I was most interested in trying because my hair loves honey. And since the deep conditioner was sold out I decided to pick up this conditioner instead.

That’s it. Stay tuned for more holiday hauls. I have a couple of other natural hair companies to shop with during Black Friday and will share those hauls with you when the products arrive.

Peace & Love ❀
