The Best 2018 Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday Beauty Sales and Deals

My favorite shopping event of the year is finally here. This weekend, which kicks before Thanksgiving with some retailers, provides some of the best deals we will see. Traditionally, this is the weekend where most retailers cross over from red to black, and they will do whatever it takes to earn your shopping dollars. Offers are competitive, because almost every retailer will have one. I will update this every time I see an incredible offer through Cyber Monday, so this list will grow over the week. My tastes might vary from yours, so make sure you sign up for emails from all of your favorite retailers. It is also a good idea to check multiple blogs and sites to see what each of them feel is worth mentioning this season. Most of these offers go out to all customers. Of course, there might be some affiliate exclusives or offers targeted to select customers. I am not listing any small offers, because this is the time of year when we can stretch our budget further by scoring just the right deal. Some big offers will not make the cut either, because I cannot list them all.

The Best Labor Day Sales and Deals This Weekend

Labor Day became a federal holiday in 1894 when Grover Cleveland (some dispute giving him credit) declared we needed an annual celebration of workers and their achievements. This was during the height of the Industrial Revolution, so employees were really making an impact on the economy. It was not uncommon for workers to endure 12 hour shifts, seven days a week. No one was immune, not even children. Since weekends did not exist for these workers, Labor Day was a welcome and extremely brief reprieve for our ancestors who brought us into a new millennium. Though must of us do not have the work ethic of our forefathers, and thank goodness for that because there is more to life than earning money, Labor Day is still an important part of our society.

FabuFinds: Product Spotlight August 2016

Every month, I review my Empty Products. Some products are not worth thinking about once the month is over. Others are wonderful and seem like they’re made for me. Those are FabuFinds, and I generally devote a little more time to discussing them. They are items I have repurchased and will continue to repurchase even at full price if I could not find a good promo code. Items I am loving but cannot finish any time soon make it into Deal Discoveries.

To eventually spotlight all of my FabuFinds, I will never repeat items already mentioned in a past article. That does not mean they lost their magic. It is also possible an item not spotlighted in a past Empties article may get promoted as I try it more and fall deeper in love. Other times, it is because I had a lot of FabuFinds in a previous month and decided to condense the article. There are three products I consider FabuFinds in my August Empties that I have not discussed yet.

FabuFinds: Product Spotlight July 2016

Every month, I review my Empty Products. Some products are not worth thinking about once the month is over. Others are wonderful and seem like they’re made for me.

It is also possible an item not spotlighted in a past Empties article may get promoted as I try it more and fall deeper in love. Other times, it is because I had a lot of FabuFinds in a previous month and decided to condense the article. There are eight products I consider FabuFinds in my July Empties that I have not discussed yet. I may add three or four others in future months, because I considered adding them here. This was such a great month for product loves that in a slower month, I may have added them. If I continue loving them or grow to love them more in future months, I will add them later (as I am doing this month with the Gold Bond).

Ole Henriksen POWER Bright™ Free Trial from Sephora

A Sephora moderator contacted me via its Beautytalk Forum on 06/03/16. Beautytalk is my favorite online hangout, because there are a lot of like-minded friendly people to chat with about all things beauty. I probably hang out there a little more than I should. Those familiar with Beautytalk may know me under the user notcreative. The moderator wrote, “as an active community member who has made great contributions and given helpful product recommendations on BeautyTalk, you’ve been especially chosen to receive a free gift (no purchase necessary) of a new Ole Henriksen product! You will receive Power Bright, a three-step brightening system with a 25% Vitamin C Complex.”

Fourth of July Deals Featuring the Ole Henriksen $100 Gift Bag With a $50 Purchase And Peter Thomas Roth Travel Mania Sale

Independence Day is one of the biggest sale days of the year. For some retailers, it can even rival Black Friday. American companies are proud to offer discounts and large Gift With Purchases that rival the best deals you’ll find all year. It makes perfect sense to me, because this time of year makes me proud to buy American brands. They capitalize on our pride, big time. Other countries have their own special days, like Boxing Day in Canada. Speaking of our friendly neighbors, many American deals cross the border. I would like to make a speech that rivals Bill Paxton’s in Independence Day, but I will skip ahead to the deals.

Sephora Sun Safety Kit 2015

2016 Sun Safety Kit

Every year in mid to late May, Sephora releases the Sun Safety Kit. It retails for $32, and $20 of that is donated to the Skin Cancer Foundation. My Dad has skin cancer, so I like the idea of buying something I want while supporting the cause at the same time. My insane stockpile told me I was pretty stocked on sunscreen, so I was ready to pass. I still have a few stragglers from the 2013 kit and half or more from 2014. Luckily, most sunscreens print the expiration date, so I use sunscreen in the order it expires and not when it arrives.

Everyone was waiting impatiently for this release, which was a bit later than 2014. It usually sells out in a few days, but it lasted about a week on and off online. It released and my inner hoarder/deal seeker told me to buy it. And, here we are.

Get Free Beauty Samples Volume Two

Nothing beats completely free offers.  Sometimes, there really is no catch to obtaining free items.  You just have to know where to look and how to find them.  Welcome to the second installment of items I’ve received for free.  Other free sample articles will feature different freebies, like Volume One Did.  If you have not already read volume one, you can see the free items I received here.  My Free Samples Page provides more information on sample opportunities.

The offers at times come in emails.  Sometimes, you will see them on a blog or the direct brand’s website.  Other times, you can find free offers on social media or even through snail mail.  Offers can at times come by phone, but I never answer numbers I do not recognize.  I will miss out on any that come that way.
