Is Black Friday any good for beauty?
Don’t make the mistake of thinking Black Friday is only good if you want to bag yourself a new TV or laptop. A host of retailers slash their prices across everything from fashion to beauty. Yes, beauty. And the beauty of it is that it’s well worth stocking up on your favourite products for the year ahead, because as long as you don’t open them, they can last ages, and even if you do, most beauty products have a shelf life of at least six months (though three for eye cream or mascara).
Black Friday Beauty Deals
Helloooo, gorgeous. The deals have started flooding in for everything from salon-grade straighteners to pots of skincare gold – and we’re here for it.

Black Friday skincare deals
Our amazing beauty store Fabled by Marie Claire will be offering deals across the site, so keep an eye out to grab a bargain on the best black Friday beauty deals. Whether you’re a fan of Bobbi Brown, Clinique or Estée Lauder, you’ll be able to nab yourself a sweet discount on your favourite beauty items. Score!
Lots of skincare brands tend to offer a blanket 20% (or other percentage) off their site too, so you can stock up your favourite products. Last time, Elemental Herbology, Origins, SkinCeuticals and Clarins took part, to name just a few.
Black Friday fragrance deals
The likes of Boots and Debenhams will offer discounts both online and in-store across a range of products, including fragrances. We all know fragrances aren’t cheap, so if you can get them at a reduced cost, all the better. Then brands like YSL will also have their own discounts, so keep an eye out.
Black Friday beauty gift set deals
If you’re not one of those people who’ve done all their Christmas shopping by September (who is?!), then this is the best time to get gift sets for Christmas. Brands like Origins, Estee Lauder and Benefit will reduce the price on selected sets, worth it as even full price, it’s cheaper than buying products separately.

Then, as mentioned above, the likes of Boots, Superdrug, Debenhams, House of Fraser and more will also reduce their beauty offerings, which is better if you’re not quite sure what set you’re after yet, seeing as they will have more choice across more brands.
Black Friday electrical deals
Last Black Friday, ghd offered £20 off straighteners and other products, so if you’re thinking of investing in a pair, it would be rude not to take advantage of it.
Amazon will be a great place to find deals on electric toothbrushes, hairdryers, epilators and other essentials.
And as mentioned before, stores like Boots and Debenhams, who stock anything from epilators to IPL machines, hairdryers and electric shavers, will also offer some seriously good deals. That’s everyone’s Christmas gift sorted then!
Is it best to shop Black Friday online or in-store?
To be honest, the deals tend to be the same both online and in-store, but if you’d like to save yourself the aggro of waiting in line for stores to open and battling it out with other customers on the shop floor, then online is the way forward. Plus, some deals will start at midnight, so you’ll actually be able to do some shopping earlier. With our curated list of the best black Friday beauty deals, you will be for choice.
When does Black Friday start?
Black Friday falls on the day following Thanksgiving Day in the United States (which is the fourth Thursday of November). Here the UK, Black Friday 2019 will fall on the 29th November (which is a Friday) so you still have time to bookmark the shops you want to visit and pick out the deals you’re going to go after.
When is Cyber Monday?
This is always the Monday after Black Friday, so this year it will fall on the 2nd December.
What is the difference between Black Friday and Cyber Monday?
Honestly, there’s not much of a difference, as discounts usually last from the Friday through to the Monday, though some stores introduce new ‘flash’ deals on Cyber Monday.
