As most fo you are probably aware, Black Friday is next week. In an effort to try and remain focused and not buy a bunch of stuff because it's on offer I have decided to create a sort of wish list compiling all the things I would consider buying. I don't think I'll be picking up any big ticket items, I'm paranoid about buying something someone has already got me as a gift! Anyway, here is a selection of products I would consider stocking up on during the Black Friday sales.
So one thing I know I'll order is the Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream. I have loved this product for around 5 years now and it's just my one stop shop for if my skin is dry, chapped or flaky. It's one of the few lip balms I fully trust on my sensitive lips and it has never let me down. The tube I currently have is the fragrance free version and I think I'll pick up another of them as I actually prefer the scent of the fragrance free version. That may sound strange but it's a light pleasant scent on the skin. If you haven't tried it before, pick one up in the sale! I absolutely adore this product.
Other skin care items I might pick up are my basic cleanser and moisturiser, both are from CeraVe. I had some issues this spring with my skin being super sensitive and these didn't cause any irritation so now they're my go-to's. Not very exciting but they get the job done!
I'll also most likely be picking up some of the The Ordinary Niacinamide serum and possibly more of their Buffet serum. I tend to mix these two as I can never decide whether or not I want some general hydration or help my oily skin.
One product I haven't tried before that I am considering buying is the Hydrating Accelerator by Josh Rosebrook. This product was in Caroline Hiron's Winter Skin Kit, which I would have loved to pick up but it was way out of my price range. I think this product would go great before my hyaluronic acid serum so I can get the most hydrated skin possible!
I have been eyeing the Hourglass mini blushes for a while as I want a small blush thats very neutral to travel with. I would love to bring my Nars blush palette with me everywhere but it would be great if I could pack more lightly. I have my eyes on Mood Exposure, so I'm hoping this shade will be on sale!
So I may have made a very exciting purchase a couple of weeks ago (I'll be posting about it soon!) and I'm in need of a small, sturdy magnetic palette. I was leaning towards a small magnetic Tarte palette or the Travel Vault by MakeupGeek but I can't get hold of the MakeupGeek one at all and the Tarte palettes are not really my style. Right now I think I'll go for the NABLA Liberty Six Customizable Palette, the size seems about right and it's not that expensive. We'll see what happens.
I noticed the SKINNYDIP Holographic Dazzle Washbag on BeautyBay the other day and I won't lie I was drawn to it. I don't need this, but if it's on sale then...
Another thing I don't need is things from Colourpop. I have never tried anything from them before, purely because of the shipping fees and potential customs charge. I would want to order things but I feel like there needs to be enough things in order for me to reach the free shipping cap but I also don't want to have to pay a lot for the customs. If an amazing deal is on I'll consider it, but for now I'm happy to wait until there's a good deal.
I don't remember how I found out about the Briogeo Blossom & Bloom Volume Root Powder but for a while now I've been curious about it. I think it'd be something I'd enjoy as I sometimes wish I had a tad more volume in my hair but I don't want to use all of my dry shampoo. If there's a good offer on I might pick it up.
Now I know before you think anything, this is so, soooo extra and unnecessary. But this Slip Large Scrunchies look really nice. Do I need scrunchies made out silk? Absolutely not. Would I use them everyday? Most likely. Will I buy them if they're on offer? Depends on how good it is.
Thanks for reading today's post! I hope this inspires you to make a list of things you'd be interested in before you go shopping and remember that just because it's a good deal, you don't have to buy it!
