This year, Black Friday falls on November 29, and if last year was any indication, there’ll be Black Friday Amazon deals, Black Friday beauty deals, and Black Friday electronics deals well under way. Can’t keep track of everything? No sweat. We’ll be compiling our picks for the best deals right here from All Saints, Glossier, John Lewis, Selfridges, Cult Beauty, and more. Consider the Strategist UK your Black Friday HQ, with links to one-off discounts and roundups of bigger sales you may want to dive deeper into.
Keep your eyes peeled for more promotions and Black Friday coverage as we continue to update this page on the actual day, and follow the Strategist UK on Twitter for more timely sales coverage. The festive season is almost here — we’re here to help.
All Saints have 30% off everything including their entire leather-jacket range. We love the classic Balfern in a deep berry red.
ASOS have 25% off everything with the code GIMME. A good time to try out one of our best white t-shirts for women?
Beauty Bay have up to 50% off across the site, including products like Mario Badescu, Kevyn Aucoin, Alpha H and more. We’ve spotted an eyebrow gel that made writer Natalya Lobanova tumblr-famous on sale.
That Boden sale includes all cashmere. May we suggest this nice dark-grey jumper (with a slight V-neck) for your boyfriend?
Cult Beauty’s Pre-Cyber sale includes discounts of 25% off Dr. Barbara Strum, 25% off Omorovizca, and 25% off Foreo. Discount applied at the checkout.
FeelUnique have up to 35% off across the site, including Bioderma, Urban Decay, and more. We’ve spotted a Rio-recommended lip balm at a stocking-filler price.
This moisturiser from Finnish brand Lumene is also on sale — and is a product everyone in Helsinki turns to when the temperature drops, per writer Tabatha Leggett.
Stock up on an expert-recommended product for getting rid of ingrown hairs. According to aesthetician Laura Kaiser: ‘This is an oil you apply for a few days before or after hair removal that is antiseptic and helps soften hair and hair regrowth. As far as I know, it’s about the only product on the market specifically for pubic hair’.
Glossier have 20% off everything, until the 2nd of December. Our own Rio likes to use stretch concealer as an all-over tint for her going-out looks because not only is it “so glowy and creamy that it makes my skin look practically glasslike in photos,” but it also “creates the most luminous, dewy base for the rest of my makeup.”
Our beauty columnist Rio also likes Glossier’s Play Colorslide. “It’s waxy but not insanely pigmented, so if you decide you want a touch of colour on the lids but aren’t quite ready for a liquid bright-blue cat eye, this is the perfect thing,” she says.
Our columnist Chris Black’s favourite Levis’ black jeans are 20% off at John Lewis.
Net-A-Porter have 30% off full price items through to the 1st of December, including these Veja sneakers that our US colleagues are obsessed with.
Other Stories have 20% off everything (including sale) with the code NOIR20. That means these leather cowboy boots we’ve had our eye on are only £28.
Selfridges has up to 20% off fashion with the code SELFCCE. That also includes this Aspinal Cosmetics Case that we’ve had our eye on.
Selfridges also has 20% across all Kiehl’s products, including cult favourite Midnight Recovery Concentrate.
