Most editors are used to an out-of-control inbox in the weeks leading up to Black Friday, but this year somehow seems even more wild than normal. Because it's not just that brands are having Black Friday sales in 2019 — this time around, it's almost as if they're in a competition to see which one can last the longest or who can give away the most freebies (in addition to, you know, the actual discounts). If your inbox is equally as flooded with BOGO sales and promises of gifts with purchase (and chances are, it is), you probably just want to know the best Black Friday sales so you can skip the reading and go straight to the important part: the shopping.
If that's the case, you're in luck. The Zoe Report's beauty editors have rounded up the only sales you really need to know about this season to take the guesswork out of the holiday madness. Ahead, nine Black Friday deals we think are worth shopping (and we're sure you will, too).
On Nov. 26, Space NK's Black Friday sale kicks off with a buy one, get one half off sale on all brands excluding holiday sets, gift cards, May Lindstrom, and Vintner’s Daughter. The deal will be available on Space NK's site, in its boutiques, in Space NK inside Bloomingdale’s, and on Space NK brands on bloomingdales.com until Dec. 2.
"The Space NK sale is my favorite one of them all, because who can say no to a buy one get one half-off deal? I visited the Prince Street location a couple of weeks ago and stocked up on a three-wick Diptyque candle and a small Byredo one, and didn’t feel the least bit guilty since I saved so much money." — Khalea Underwood, Beauty Editor
You can get all your Laura Mercier favorites for 25 percent off from Nov. 25 until Dec. 2 thanks to the brand's sitewide Black Friday sale.
From Nov. 28 through Dec. 1, Grown Alchemist is offering 30 percent off its entire site — yes, including its extremely chic hand wash.
Glossier's much-anticipated Black Friday sale starts on Nov. 29 this year, and will offer 20 percent off everything until Dec. 2 (including its new limited-edition sets, which launched on Nov. 25).
"I've always been a fan of Glossier's skin care, but this year I was really won over by its makeup — especially Boy Brow (I know, I'm late to the party). I'm planning on snagging the Groom + Conceal + Perfect Set on sale because it'll let me try Glossier's lightweight foundation and concealer, and stock my brows up for the winter." — Madge Maril
Olive & June
Olive & June is having a Cyber Week sale, which means everything is 25 percent off from Nov. 24 through Dec. 2 when you use the code OLIVE25 at checkout.
"I've been favoring at-home manis lately over visits to the salon, so I'll be shopping Olive & June's long-lasting polishes and manicure essentials (like its award-winning cuticle serum). While I'm at it, I'll snag some wintry lacquer shades to give as perfect stocking stuffers for friends and family." — Zoe Ward
Though it's a short one, Shiseido's Black Friday sale is still happening. It kicks off online on Nov. 29 and lasts until Dec. 1, with 20 percent off sitewide (and an extra 10 percent off an additional list of products).
Dermstore's huge Black Friday sale starts on Nov. 28 at 6 p.m. ET and runs through Dec. 2, and offers up to 30 percent off sitewide with code DSGIFT (just note that there are some brand and product exclusions, so be sure to check the site once the sale starts for full details).
Use the promo code FRIDAY from Nov. 27 through Dec. 1 to get 20 percent off your purchase on Summer Fridays' site.
In Kosas' Black Friday sale, the more you spend, the more you save: You'll get 20 percent off any purchase of $50 or more, 25 percent off any purchase of $75 or more, and 30 percent off if you spend more than $100 from Nov. 27 until Dec. 2. Bonus: You'll get a Mini Rosewater GWP with every order during the sale, too.
