This year, Black Friday falls on November 29, and as we racked our brains trying to come up with the best way to handle TV, beauty, and all other deals for you, loyal Strategist UK readers, we decided: Why not stick to the tried-and-true things we’ve already written about that just happen to be on sale for Black Friday? Instead of inundating you, we’re going to surface the things that we already love. Bookmark this page, as we’ll be continuing to update once the sales go live. And move fast, if you can — if last year was any indication, several of these discounts won’t last.

Glossier have 20% off everything, until the 2nd of December.

A Strat-approved mist for sensitive skin. Writer Laura Hunter Thomas says, “I can literally see it calming my face as I watch, the hives shrinking and the redness fading.” There’s a 25% saving on Omorovizca at Cult Beauty (applied at checkout), meaning you save almost £15 on the large bottle.
One of our highest-rated pairs of cans is now at the lowest price we’ve seen all year. Our experts say it delivers some of the best sound quality out there.
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.
