A Beauty Lover’s Guide To The Best Black Friday Ever

If you are anything like me, you wait the whole year for the special day after Thanksgiving when everything is the best price it could possibly be. It’s like you are actually saving money because you are buying the best gifts for your loved ones (and yourself!).

It’s the best time of the year to stock up and invest in products that might be too pricey year around. Here are some of the best Black Friday beauty and wellness deals if you love beauty and wellness.

1. Sephora

One of the most popular skincare and makeup meccas for most of us has some insane Black Friday sales. Urban Decay’s Naked3 Palette will be $27 instead of $52, and the classic First Aid Beauty’s classic ultra repair cream will be $15 instead of $44—now that is a steal.

2. Ulta

Ulta is pulling all the stops and making tons of deals available from now if you aren’t patient enough for Black Friday. This is the best time to try the Skyn Iceland glacial face wash for $15 instead of $30, plus all the IT Cosmetic Brushes for Ulta are all $10 (generally up to $40). Plus they keep adding more surprises every day.

3. SkinStore

I discovered SkinStore about a year ago and realized that they have more discounts and sales than other major makeup and skincare sites, but they are not the most well-known sites. The entire site is 25% off with the code BLACK, and trust me, there are some fantastic deals. Plus, you can find other products that are up to 50% off! Get yourself the NuFace Mini Hydrate and Contour Mini Gift Set ($167 and typically $268), Colorescience Sunforgettable Total Protection Face Shield Flex SPF 50 ($31.50 and usually $45) or Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Makeup ($32.25 and normally $43).

4. Redken

Redken is offering 30-50% off their shampoos, conditioners and treatments between Black Friday and Cyber Monday. This is the time of the year when I get myself those jumbo bottles at the best price ever, so I am adding a couple of bottles of the Extreme Conditioner because they are a blessing for my damaged hair.

5. Dermstore

Another hidden gem of a site that sells the best skincare and makeup products is Dermstore, and you can save up to 30% on their biggest sale of the year with the code BLACK. My favorites Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentre, Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion and bareMinerals ORIGINAL Loose Mineral Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 are all 30% off, so I stock up for the year.

6. Jurlique

Jurlique won me over when I first used their Nutri-Define Supreme Cleansing Foam because it felt like the cleanser also moisturized and brightened my face after one wash. From November 22-28, their entire site is 25% off.

7. oVertone (Hair Color & Haircare)

Whether you are all about being an ‘expensive brunette’ or like a bit of pink in your hair, the best time to invest in them is now because the entire oVertone site is 40% between November 22 and November 28 with the code OMG40. My favorite is Rose Gold for Brown Hair Healthy Duo because it is the best.

8. CHI Haircare

I remember when I got my first fancy flat iron, the CHI, and it is still the best hair tool I own. This is the best time to invest in their haircare and styling tools. The entire site is 20% off on Black Friday and 30% off on Cyber Monday with the code CHIJOY.

9. Vasanti Cosmetics and Skincare

If you ever use the Brighten Up! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator, you will never use anything else. This gentle yet powerful exfoliator fights dullness, dark spots, and wrinkles. Everything on Vasanti is between 25% and 80% off from November 26 to November 30.

10.  Vitabrid C12

If you are not ready to commit to Botox and fillers but want the same results, you can try VitabridC12 because their unique “Secret Code P-151” can enhance the skin’s ability to absorb peptides and reduce lines, dryness and uneven skin tone. Just try their wrinkle cream (Sale $42 & Regular $72) from November 26-30 and enjoy 40% off all products.

11. Beverly Hills MD Skincare

You may not be able to afford a treatment with the plastic surgeons of LA, but you will be able to get your hands on Beverly Hills MD’s products for 30% off with the code THANKS30 from November 24 to November 29. Try their best seller Lift + Firm Sculpting Cream.

Whether you like to keep it simple and only like skincare or if you want to be all dolled up and adore makeup, do what makes you happy. If you like to save money, this is the best time to do it while getting your hands on the best of all drugstore and upscale skincare and makeup.

Enjoy Black Friday and get yourself at least one thing you really love because you know you deserve it.
