ere’s a hack that is, by no means, a revolutionary idea: use the occasion of Black Friday to stock up your beauty cabinet as well as tick off your entire Christmas shopping list.
In time gone by, it was the tech deals that made headlines, but in recent years, it’s the discounts across the skin, hair, body, fragrance and cosmetic category that has got everyone talking. That is due to the simple fact that this is the one of the few times of the year that many of the most hyped about beauty brands on the market slash their prices, and it’s just in time for the festive season.
With the likes of Glossier, La Mer, ghd, Oral-B and more all getting in on the discount action, there is never a better time to upgrade your beauty gadgets as well as reserve the products you use on a daily basis for a fraction of the cost.
What is Black Friday?
Black Friday is an annual sales event that originates in the US and has become a worldwide phenomenon where there is rarely a brand in existence that doesn’t offer some level of discount. This is why it is known as the biggest shopping event in the calendar.
When is Black Friday 2022? When is Cyber Monday 2022?
While you may have noticed that the Black Friday sales have already begun, the official event is taking place in 2022 on November 25 and will run until Cyber Monday on November 28. Mark your calendars.
What were the best deals from Black Friday weekend last year?
In 2021’s Black Friday event, we saw up to 50 per cent off lookfantastic, up to 40 per cent off selected items at Charlotte Tilbury and up to 75 per cent off Morphe. There was also 33 per cent off Olaplex and reductions across BaByliss, Foreo, electric toothbrushes and at-home IPL laser machines.
What kinds of deals can we expect this year?
More of the same no doubt but with the cost of living crisis on the mind, we’re expecting brands to be a little more generous with those reductions.
