The Big Fat Beauty Black Friday Post


I’ve been dreading this day as there are sooooo many deals – and I mean serious deals – on some of my very favourite sites and brands, and it looks like I’m moving next month (FINALLY! WOO!) so I can’t really justify any kind of expense! Having said that, I am moving somewhere with a bath after many years in a place that only has a shower, so I’ll need lots of new bath stuff, right? And candles! I need candles for my new bath! These are all things I absolutely need in my new place.  Yes.  That’s right.

Remember that a lot of these deals will be short-lived with a lot of brands/sites keeping to the tradtional Black Friday approach and only keeping the discounts available for the day itself, so act quickly if there’s something you want.  Here are some great deals that I am aware of – I’ll keep updating as more come through and let you know on Twitter when there’s an update, so keep an eye on my Twitter account here – link.

Elemis are doing a week of deals on some of their bundles and there are some stonking deals to be found – think almost QVC TSV style reductions.  Check them out here – link.

Oskia are offering 20% off all their full-sized products, whilst also donating proceeds to the Evelina Children’s Hospital.  The promo goes live tonight (Thursday) here – link.

YSL have 15% a lot of their products (although there are some exclusions) with the code YSL15 here – link.

Giorgio Armani are doing something similar with 15% off a lot of their products (again, there are exclusions) with the code EXCLUSIVE15 here – link.

Deciem are doing Black Friday in a way that will make you want to buy everything they offer (kudos to the brand!) as they have put together some massive bundles and knocked 60% off, so you get a lot of beauty booty for a ridiculous low price.  For example, the NIOD set contains four of their best products for £60 (the RRP of the four is £153) and there’s also Hylamide set that I want soooo baaad that contains five brilliant products down from £110 to £39.  Avoid like the plague if you can’t afford to splurge! The offers will go live here – link.

My Derma Center is where you’ll find some serious discounts on Skinceuticals as well as other L’Oreal brands like Vichy and La Roche Posay, so now is the time to stock up here – link.

Foreo have 25% off everything other than gift sets here – link.

Crownbrush have 25% off their entire website with code Makeup25 (apply at checkout) here – link.

Amazon have a really decent melting pot of beauty bits in their Black Friday sale, with brands such as Real Techniques and Nails Inc, with lots of gadgets and fragrances too here – link.

Love Makeup have a sliding scale to encourage to spend more on some of their amazing brands such as Zoeva, Kevyn Aucoin, Lime Crime and Louise Young.  Treat15 gets 15% off a £40 spend and Treat20 gets 20% off an £80 spend here – link.

T3 are offering 25% off their range of luxury haircare gadgets here – link.

Urban Decay are offering 20% off their Perversion Mascara here – link.

Kiehl’s have 20% off their entire product range, but you do need to buy a minimum of 2 products here – link.

Murad will be having 20% off what I believe to be everything, but it isn’t completely clear, so there might be exceptions here – link.

Sigma have 25% off everything with code BlackFriday25 on site PLUS free Worldwide shipping, which is terribly enticing here – link.

FeelUnique have some huge savings for Black Friday, such as 30% off Kerastase and Redken, 50% of Tigi, 3for2 on Emma Hardie and Decleor as well as many others here – link.

LookFantastic currently have 18% off a huge array of products, but it’s unclear as to whether that figure will go up or down tomorrow – definitely worth keeping an eye on it here – link.

Sephora are, as you would expect, doing all sorts of great things for Black Friday with brands such as MUFE, Philosophy, Josie Maran, Origins and Urban Decay all in the mix.  They’re doing quite an interesting, staggered approach to the Black Friday fun, releasing new sets and promotions every few hours, which is exciting but also a bit of a pain as you’ll need to keep checking back. Well worth it though! Head here – link.

Cult Beauty also have a sliding scale of discounts, with £5 off a £50 spend (Black5), £15 off £100 spend (Black15) and £30 off a £150 spend (Black30) here – link.

All Beauty are also releasing different deals each day, with some great savings of up to 70% on brands such as Clinique, Clarins and Elizabeth Arden here – link.

tarte have 25% off which is a huge saving, although keep in mind that there are some products they don’t ship to the UK. Check it out here – link.

Beauty Bay have some serious bargains with discounts between 15% and 30% on brands such as Gerard Cosmetics, Japonesque, RMK and Alpha-H (amongst many, many more) which can be found here – link.

Glossybox are offering the first box for £3 (plus p&p) with code FRIDAYDYDKY here – link.

John Lewis currently have a price match going on, so there are bargains already, but they’re definitely doing something for the full “Black Friday weekend” so they’re worth keeping an eye on here – link.

    Am stone broke this month so no beauty purchases for me even though it’s Black Fri weekend. Just commented on your post above that I’m moving and see that you are too. Lived in my previous flat for 18 years but had to move to a smaller place and am having to leave a lot of my stuff behind – in storage or thrown out. Missing my beauty stash already, but at least can keep most of it in storage. Hope your move goes better than mine did! So stressful especially with a small one! Hint: make sure that Teddy has his bed, fave toy/muslin/dummy and put him down for a nap when he starts playing up because he’s tired/overwhelmed from all that’s going on! We had to move using our car because we couldn’t afford to hire a van and didn’t manage to get the toddler bed for 3 hours (long story!) and my daughter went into full ‘wild’ mode! It was a very long 3 hours in which I had a meltdown! Xx
