In-store fights and street-long queues, no more. Tackle this year's Black Friday from the comfort (and warmth!) of your own home and save yourself from being punched, pulled or pinched in stores. I did the digging and found some great Black Friday beauty and fashion deals and all that's left for you to do is to compile your wish lists, prep your [virtual] baskets and have your card details ready.FOREO. You guys know I love my FOREO Luna, and if you don't check out this and this post to convince yourself why you (and your skin) would need one too. A lil’ birdie told me they're celebrating this year's Black Friday with a bang, as they're offering 25% discount + free shipping on all their offerings. That's the LUNA, LUNA mini, LUNA for MEN, ISSA and ISSA mini. No code is needed, but you'll have to order them through their official e-shop.
WISHTREND. If you've read my ‘Where To Buy Korean Skincare?’ post, you know I dig e-tailer, a lot actually. They have really competitive prices, good English explanations of products and a great selection of brands that you won't be able to easily get your hands on elsewhere. They've teased about their great BF promo this year, which will range from discounts to up to 80% and a free gift for orders over $99. The promotion runs from now till Cyber Monday.
If you're not sure what to get or simply overwhelmed by the discounts, head onto their blog for some great suggestions that'll please a K-Beauty beginner or veteran. On my list?
A BEAUTIFUL WORLD. ABW is easily one of my favourite green beauty websites, as it stocks incredible brands. Some to definitely look out for are The Body Deli, Indie Lee, Youth to the People, Josh Rosebrook, Olivine, Yarok and Schmidt's. I reached out to ABW, but they decided to keep it all very hush-hush and only let out that there'll be a limited edition gift worth £19! (I'll update with more specific details on the day itself).
JOLSE. If you follow me on Snapchat, you may have noticed that my thirst for SoKo beauty is real. Next to WISHTREND, this is one of my faves places to shop. They carry the most popular Korean beauty brands and the best thing is that you save as they carry other brands and you can gain reward points with each item you buy! They're celebrating BF with a big bang, where they're offering 15% off all products and 20% off COSRX. No code is needed and first time customers receive $3 store credit. Keep an eye out for the brands Sulwhasoo, HERA, Goodal, Banila Co, the SAEM, TONYMOLY and Etude House. The promotion runs from now till Cyber Monday.
LOOK FANTASTIC. This is definitely one of my go-to places to order skincare, as they store such a wide range of brands and products in one place. Convenience at its best! Also, I love the fact they always have on-going promotions, regardless of the day or season. Save 15% on all products when entering the code ‘BLACKFRIDAY’ at checkout. Some exclusions apply —see their guidelines for some excluded brands.
NATURISIMO. One of my go-to platforms for green beauty brands, as they just carry a large variety of brands. I'm a sucker for convenience. They're celebrating Black Friday with some great promotions throughout the week and the best deals I'd say would be 25% off all Trilogy's Rosehip Oils (get the Antioxidant +) and 15% off all products using the code ‘BLACK15’. If you're feeling super spendy (or you're doing your Christmas shopping) use the code ‘BLACK20’ with orders over £100 to get 20% off everything.
CURRENT BODY. If you're a big fan of bringing professional salon treatments to your own bathroom, PMD Personal Microderm may be a device you'd be interested in. It basically is an at home micro-dermabrasion that deeply exfoliates the skin and instantly removes them with a built-in mini vacuum. I've had salon micro-dermabrasion treatments before, and whilst they're not for the faint-hearted and don't come cheap, they do deliver. It helps fade hyper pigmentation, sun damage and age spots, whilst also reducing fine lines and wrinkles due to stimulating cell renewal. If that all sounds great, you can now get it with 25% off from currentbody.com (no code is needed). Get an extra 15% off with the code ‘BF15’.
MOSS. I've yet to try anything from the brand myself, but the green beauty community has made me aware and very excited about the serums and oils of the brand. One of them is Equilibrium, which is a lightweight serum for those with/recovering from acneic skin. It contains a blend of anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial botanicals. Neem is cooling, calming and anti-bacterial, whereas Pumpkin Bioferment and Ursolic Acid are gentle exfoliants, renews skin and promotes collagen production. The reason for my rambling is because now you can get 20% off Equilibrium using the code ‘EQ’!
Update: To make it easier to take the plunge, Celestyna is offering free worldwide shipping with any purchase with the code ‘SHIPSHIPHURRAY’. Also, every order will receive a free gift —talk about being grateful! Don't forget, this offer runs from Friday - Monday with limited supplies.
SHOPBOP. Ahh, one of my fave go-to places to shop for handbags and... well everything else. They do the best seasonal deals and I get my ‘American’ merch from there —Rebecca Minkoff anyone? Anyhoo, you can grab up to 25% off using the code ‘GOBIG15’. Go big or go home, eh?
THE DETOX MARKET. This one's for my green beauty loving, US/Canadian followers! I wish I could order from TDM, as they carry great great brands. (I think that's kinda the theme here today haha). I've been told it's their biggest sale ever and there's free shipping on all orders! Get $10 off $100 with ‘GIVE10’, $30 off $200 with ‘GIVE30’ and $100 off $400 with ‘GIVE100’. Watcha waiting for?
CONTENT. I think it'd be fair to say that Content would be TDM's UK/European alter-ego, and maybe even more superior? Oh, I don't know... I could be mega biased, even though I say so myself, ha! Rambling aside, you can now get 15% off any purchase with the code ‘BLACK’ and 20% off any purchase over £85 with ‘BLACK20’. On my list? Their Mantrabands – Namaste, anyone? – and the Living Nutrition Kef-Flamex supplements.
BEAUTY HEROES. I've recently been introduced to its offerings, which has gotten me very excited about subscription boxes again. The November box was a Josh Rosebrook dream and I've been told by numerous sources that the next will be even better. Claims like this are hard to fulfil, so I'm expecting to be blown off my socks. This Friday you'll get 10% off a 3/6/12 month BH Gift Subscription using the code ‘CELEBRATE’. And to make the deal even sweeter, you'll get one free box yourself, for every 3 gift subscriptions you “Sharing is caring” has never been more true!
REN. A ‘best beauty deals’ post wouldn't be complete without the mention of REN. It's one of my all-time favourite brands after all! Not only is a handpicked selection of best-sellers up for grabs at up to 50% off on Thursday, on Black Friday itself you can get 35% off the entire range! For the big spenders, they're giving a free full-size Moroccan Rose Otto Body Wash with all order over £75. And for those who still have money after this weekend, Cyber Monday awaits you with a great deal with REN favourites sold at up to 50% off! Someone monitor me and my spending this week... O.M.G.
And the list doesn't end here. Make sure to keep an eye out for Net-a-Porter, Pai, Cult Beauty and more! I can't say much now, but more deals will be announced on Black Friday, so I'll try to update the post ASAP when the promo details will be live —watch this space.
I've finally joined the Snapchat bandwagon! Follow me (wngyee) for real-time, real life snaps of food, randomness, life and beauty.
