Here’s What Beauty Daily Staffers Are Buying This Black Friday
Sarah Joan Ross, Beauty Daily Editor
“I’ve been busy renovating an Edwardian house. So not only has that haemorrhaged money out of every single joist, crack, and windowpane, but it’s also taken its toll on my hands, so I have been using up hand cream at an accelerated rate. Clarins Hand And Nail Treatment Balm, £26, is just what my dry digits need right now.
I’ll also be looking for deals around my everyday beauty basics, like the Instant Eye Make-Up Remover or SPF products and then semi-stockpiling. I’m also keeping a sharp eye on the super indulgent Tonic Body Oils and Body Balms – bookmarking and adding items to my basket now, so I don’t get too overwhelmed by the hype and waste time scrolling on sale day.”
Jane Fulcher, Beauty Daily Contributor
“I can’t wait for the start of the party season and catching up with old friends, but late nights, going from the biting cold outside to warm interiors and one too many glasses of Champagne can play havoc with my skin. I’ll be looking for anything that can keep my festive glow going including my go-to for when I need to look perky: Clarins Beauty Flash Balm, £36 plus, lashings of mascara. For nights in I’ll want to recover with indulgent and restorative facial treatment oils, plus the ultimate skin saviour: Clarins SOS Treatment Masks. I’m also planning a much-needed sunshine break in early 2024 so anything to protect my winter skin from UV rays will be going straight into my basket too.”
Anne Lora Scagliusi, Beauty Daily Beauty and Wellness Writer
“I’ve been waiting for Black Friday to replenish my beauty cabinet with Clarins cult favourites: Double Serum and Double Serum Eye, £58. I swear by both serums because they’re fully loaded with hardworking antioxidants warding off all signs of rapid ageing and the dreaded effects of pollution. This is all I need to help me get my festive and all-year-round glow. Plus, thanks to the blue light superpowers of the eye serum, I’m protected during the inevitable screen time, so goodbye racoon eyes. Don’t just take my word for it: 75% of 351 women agreed after 7 days their eyes are more relaxed, open and sparkling with youth.
In addition, my husband and I share a love for the soothing scent of Eau Ressourçante, it lulls us into deep sleep. I’ll be buying this with every intention of gifting it to him, but we all know I’ll be borrowing it too. All of these have been waiting in my Black Friday basket.”
Nishita Fiji, Beauty Daily Beauty Writer
“I don’t tend to buy too many new products during the year. But Black Friday may just be the right time to stock up on products I’ve been meaning to try. I’m already feeling very festive and excited for the holiday-party season. So, I’ve been eyeing up the Beauty Flash Peel, £38 – it’s an exfoliating treatment with AHAs and BHAs that I hope will help keep my skin even and radiant during the festive period.
The Lash & Brow Double Fix Mascara is another product that’s been in my cart for a few weeks now. I’m always looking for clear brow gels (good ones are surprisingly hard to find!) and this one is waterproof and also has conditioning properties. So, it’s a win-win.”
Charlotte McHale, Clarins Training Manager
“The Lip Comfort Oil Collection, £25! It’s this year must must-have coffret featuring four of Clarins iconic Lip Comfort Oils in classic colours, it’ll sell out fast! These lip oils have been the must-have makeup item in 2023 and sold out all over the UK. This coffret will be a great gift for anyone who knows about makeup!”
Sophie Bronstein, Beauty Daily Writer
“One of the first products I ever nabbed from the infamous ‘beauty cupboard’ when I was a magazine intern was the Clarins Lip Comfort Oil, £22. At 19 and having only ever come across Clarins in an ‘Eau Dynamisante’ capacity (my mum still wears it every day), this was the product that made me an instant Clarins convert. I put down my uber-matte lipsticks in favour of this glossy, hydrating oil, and quite honestly, I’ve never looked back. Back then, it was all about the Honey shade, and while this is still my everyday favourite, I’m also totally hooked on the pH-reactive shades – Chocolate and Pitaya – when I want to add a dash of colour to my pout. The other shades I am yet to try, and that’s why I’ll be packing them into my basket until it’s brimming this Black Friday.”
