Hello beautiful people! It’s that time of year where the sales are giving. This year, the sales have already started and I thought I would share things to buy in the Black Friday 2021 sales. This is a great time to purchase your Christmas gifts, buy big ticket items you need or, getting stuff you already use. For instance I like to stock up on skincare items I use everyday or flights. I will also be sharing a lot more on my Instagram stories so be sure to follow me for more. Anyways, lets begin.

Things to Buy in the Black Friday 2021 Sales
You know I’m a big fan of selfcare and love gadgets that help me feel good. So here are a few items you might be interested in purchasing during the Black Friday sales.
I love a gadget, don’t you? Let’s start off with humidifiers. They’re perfect for relaxation as you can add your favourite aromatherapy oils and feel like you’re at a relaxing spa. I have one and it’s really good , you can try this and this which includes the aromatherapy oils. Ooh and if you’re a fan of the Seychelles scent from The White Company, you can buy it and voila, bougie spa scent. This would make a great Christmas present for a loved one, that includes yourself 😉
If your mood or someone else is affected by the darker mornings and cold nights then these might be helpful. I’m a massive fan of electric blankets, I know I sound like an old lady but my feet are loving me. You have these options here, here and here.
Another option would be a sad light therapy light which is helpful if you struggle to wake up on those mornings that look like midnight. They can be pricey so getting them in the Black Friday sales would save you some money. Here are a few I found; here, here and here.
Finally, when was the last time you replaced your electric toothbrush? Let me guess, 5 years ago and the battery is on its way out? Some options would be this Oral B Pro 3 electric toothbrush that has a whitening feature. Or, you can check out this Oral B Genius X on special offer in Boots for better that 1/2 price.
I do enjoy having beauty treatments done. Whether its a massage, facial or laser hair removal. Now is a great time to get a series of treatments at a discounted rate.
Pulse Light Clinic is currently offering an extra 30% off laser hair removal packages which I have had done and you can read all about here. They’re also offering skin treatments in their Black Friday offers and you have a variety to choose from here.
Another place I’ve been to for laser hair removal is the Camden Beauty Spa which have really great offers even without the Black Friday discount.
You know I’m a skincare junkie and I’ve done product reviews on Nars, Medik8, Fresh, Ren, The Inkeylist, Dr Jart and more. So instead of rehashing what I’ve already written about, here are places where you can get discounts to purchase them.
Cultbeauty – currently there’s up to 30% off a large selection of brands using code CBCYBER. I suspect there will be more discounts to come when we hit cyber Monday.
Lookfantastic – they have up to 40% off in their warm up sale and if you sign up to their newsletter you can get early access to the sales.
Ren – if you’ve ever wanted to try the Radiance tonic, now would a great time with 25% off.
Boots – they’ve starte their BF sales already and they seem pretty epic! No code needed and you can get 20% off premium beauty brands.
If you’ve read this far, thank you! Also, here are some tips to maximise your Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales.
Sign up to newsletters to get early access and any extra special offers.
Use your points you’ve been saving to offset some of your spending at places like Boots.
Cashback can still work in the sales. Sign up to Topcashback or Quidco to help you earn money back on things you purchase.
Buy only what you need and/or what you will use. No point in buying for the sake of buying or because it’s in the sale.
If you have a credit card where you earn points, like BA American Express, shop on the credit card and pay off in full. It will contribute to cheaper flights.
My final tip is to make a list and shop from it. Simple but it’s so easy to get distracted by all the pretty shiny stuff you don’t need or won’t use. You can use Karma to help you create the list plus they’ll check that you’re getting the best deal.
I will keep this post updated until the end of the sales, but I’d love to know what are your things to buy in the Black Friday 2021 sales?
