A lot of people see Black Friday as pure evil these days, and it can be, when people just start buying tonnes of things they don’t even need, and are ready to kill each other to get that last set of whichever.
However, it can be also a great time to actually save on the things that you do need or really want. And also save on the Christmas presents.
This is why I personally have wish lists to know exactly what I am after.
While most retailers have some kind of discounts, I am just going to include a few websites that I actually like. Although, I have this in the “About” section, here is another reminder. The links are affiliated so if you choose to use them, it will help to maintain the website.
Cult Beauty Deals.
One of my favourite shops, Liberty, offers up to 30% off and 15 % off beauty here.
Up to 70% off at ASOS
Nordstrom Black Friday Offerings here.
A lot of great discount at John Lewis.
I like to make lists of the things that I need/want for a few reasons, mostly not to get
crap items I do not need, and also to keep an eye on the discounts/sales of the things which I plan on getting.
Last time I’ve posted my wish list in the beginning of July, and I did get the products from the list. So let’s do it again. Only this time, it is not just beauty but more of a lifestyle wish list. And I’ve been strict with myself and only included the things I truly want.
- Aquis Hair Turban Lisse Luxe, ( I like Desert Rose), £30 from Space NK and Look Fantastic. I’ve been resisting this for a few years (yes, really) but after reading how it is life changing, and how it helps to keep the hair in place and dries it quicker, I would really love one. It should also last for years so I am willing to give it a go, considering how much I hate having a big towel around my hair
- Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill Classico Mascara, Black, £24 from John Lewis Giorgio Armani Maestro Eye Liner, 01, £24.80. Mascara and eye liner and probably the most important makeup items for me, so I choose them very carefully. Unfortunately, high street brands don’t quite give me the results I am after, so I’d rather invest and enjoy the high quality performance.
- Luxury Pink Lip Gloss. Pink gloss is my “everyday nude”. I’ve used up a few of my favourites so would love to get a replacement. And I am thinking something very special like Chantecaille Love £29 from Space NK/ Clé de Peau Beauté Radiant Lip Gloss £38 from Harrods or byTerry from Cult Beauty. Yes, it is not necessary to spend that much on a lip gloss but I barely buy makeup these days.
I am a big fan of Trish McEvoy, and I every single product I have tried from the brand was absolutely amazing, including this cult favourite Instant Eye Lift Concealer which was already mentioned among my favourites.
To be honest, I don’t mind some dark circles under my eyes, in fact, I do not like when that area is completely flawless, I would never use 2-3 products under my eyes, as it is simply not my kind of look. I also do not like that many products for that area, the ones I do love include YSL and RBR.
However, I am a huge fan of Trish’s Instant Eye Lift. This is a magical product, as the name suggests, it is an instant eye lift, the peachy shade counteracts all the blue tones and your under eye area looks brighter and you look well rested, even
Today I want to share about the product which was mentioned in my summer beauty favourites.
And it’s a Soaper Duper Ginger Root & Eucalyptus Salt Scrub. I’ve bought quite a few products from the brand recently, and really loved all of them, however, the scrub really stood out to me.
While retailing for only £12, it feels like a luxury high-end product but for the fraction of the price. The texture, the smell, the results, everything is just brilliant about this scrub.

A few months ago I was visiting a private dermatologist for something that was bothering me, and since I was already there and paying for the visit, it made sense to chat about all things skincare, and so we did. I have to say that the doctor looked gorgeous, and I could tell that she did enjoy her beauty, makeup and perfume.
I was curious to know which skincare with vitamin C and “glowing effect” she liked herself, and which she would recommend. The answer was – Lierac Mesolift range. Since I was already a fan of the brand, I’ve decided to try the serum and the cream.
By the time I am writing this feature, I have used up the Lierac Mésolift Serum Fatigue Correction Ultra Vitamin-Enriched Refreshing Serum until the very last drop and am have almost finished the Lierac Mésolift Fatigue Correction Vitamin-Enriched Melt-In Cream, both were incredible.
The range is targeted at those who want to address the signs of visible tiredness, loss of tone and dull complexion. That is definitely me.
The formula is a cocktail of 5 Vitamins A, C, E, B, B6 , 6 minerals: Calcium, Magnesium, Copper, Zinc, Manganese, Potassium, plus Hyaluronic Acid and AHA smoothing citrus.
I loved the fact that both products are not ridiculously expensive, we are
