There’s a week before Black Friday, but no one ever regretted getting their bearings, and Sephora knows it. Before the avalanche of “act now or forever regret your misfortune” sales set in, the beauty retailer is helping shoppers scout the Black Friday goods with previews continually dropping on their app before the big day. Knowledge is power, as they say, and power is knowing exactly what you’ll be buying on Nov. 25. Especially when it comes to skin care products — where quality ingredients and innovative formulas can often cost all the dollars — it’s worth knowing the Sephora Black Friday 2016 sales on skin care to look out for.
It’s a science-backed fact that stress is the devil for our tender skin cells, and unfortunately stress has been in no short supply for many lately. Between the general existence of Twitter and the coming stress that any one-big-happy-family holiday can bring, it’s time to batten down the hatches skin-wise. Sephora’s Black Friday prices make it easy — with 13 skincare sales live on their app as of now, there’s no time like the present to up your complexion game. While you can’t click on the deals just yet, there’s plenty of good news, whether you’re looking for an amped up outer glow, want to explore the word “radiance” or are just interested in mini versions of a pricy classic. Get a load of what can be yours.
