ULTIMATE pampering alert: the biggest retail event of the year is nearly upon us, and if you're looking to indulge in some beauty treats—the Glossybox Black Friday sale is a must.
The subscription service is super-popular with beauty junkies obsessed with receiving their monthly fix of makeup, skin, hair and nail care, so we take a look at what deals are in store for this year's bonanza.
When is Black Friday 2020?
This year's Black Friday falls on November 27 and as ever, takes place the day after Thanksgiving—the American holiday celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November.
Many retailers start the celebrations early, so make sure you keep an eye out for announcements from early November. Black Friday deals usually stick around until at least the following Monday (Cyber Monday).
If you're purchasing something not specific to one retailer in particular, make sure you shop around to get the best deal on Black Friday sales as you may be able to find the same item cheaper elsewhere.
What to expect from Glossybox's Black Friday 2020:
Glossybox has had some amazing Black Friday sales previously, releasing limited edition beauty boxes like last year's Black Fri-Yay box, which was filled with 10 amazing beauty products for the bargain price of only £10. Bargain hunters were also able to snag the limited-edition All I Want box on Cyber Monday for a snip at £30—packed with products worth over £140.
If the brand releases something similar for this year's Glossybox Black Friday sale, it's likely that customers signed up to the mailing list will be given first dibs. Last Black Friday, Glossybox subscribers were granted priority access at midnight, before the box went on general sale at 7am that same day for £15.
We'll have to wait and see what will be on offer this Black Friday but we're sure there are plenty of surprises on the way, so make sure you sign up for updates!
