The internet has been awash all week with posts on Black Friday/Cyber Monday beauty deals. No doubt it’ll be reaching saturation point by the end of today, with the promotion now having kicked off proper (I jest, but you get the gist).
Not wishing to repeat blog posts already out there, I’ve tried to keep this one focused. I’m honing in on beauty and gadget deals, for a couple of reasons. Firstly, devices tend to be expensive, compared to, say, skincare and make-up, so the savings are potentially greater. Secondly, I’m obsessed with them!
As is the nature of these deals, which originated from the US to celebrate Thanksgiving, a lot of brands are not revealing their deals until today. Also, some deals will run for short periods, lasting just a few hours. As soon as one deal ends, another will begin, and so it’s going to be a case of checking back throughout the four days to see what’s new. In fact chances are, as I'm writing this post ahead, some of these deals may have already been snapped up. If that's the case, there will be others, so don't lose heart!
Here, then, is my pick of the beauty device deals thus far:
BaByliss Curl Secret - Boots (now £99.99, was £119.99)reviewed here). It is without doubt the best EVER tool for curling hair that I have come across. It delivers flawless curls in seconds and it’s fool proof to use. Simply clamp hair inside the chamber and the rest is done for you. The Pro model has more heat settings than the retail version here, and you can dictate curl direction, but at £135 it costs a fair bit more. Buy the Curl Secret here. Other Boots deals here.
Braun Silk-épil 7 7681 Wet and Dry Cordless Epilator - Amazon (now £56.99, was £84.99)
Before I switched to laser hair removal, I would swear by my Braun epilator. In fact I still use it to flick out the odd rogue hair – it’s so fast and convenient! This is an Amazon best-seller. It’s cordless and can be used wet or dry, ie in the bath or shower. It uses 40 close-grip tweezers to remove hairs as fine as 0.5 mm from the root to leave skin smooth for up to four weeks. Amazon Is running scheduled deals and has limited stock, so you’ll need to hurry. Amazon Black Friday deals here.
