Beauty lovers rejoice – Black Friday is here, and Beauty Bay are giving
all of their customers up to 30% OFF selected lines! In preparation for
the mass sale, I did a little bit of hauling myself – if you need some
persuasion or you’re desperate to grab some cult products but don’t know
what, then place your shopping goggles firmly on and keep reading.
Antipodes, 30% off
Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Treatment Mask – now £13.82!
If you’re a skincare and/or beauty enthusiast, you will have heard of this one before. The Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Treatment mask is a much hyped cult product, and probably the item you’ve been seeing if the Antipodes white tubes look familiar. Here’s the low down on how to use it: first cleanse your skin thoroughly and ensure all make-up is removed, and then apply the mask generously all over the face. Let it soak for 10-15 minutes (or 45-1 hour if you’re a lazy git like me), and then wash clean with warm water. Whilst we all love a face mask every now and then, it’s the spot-blitzing abilities of this Antipodes wonder that is its claim to fame.
Apply this to any sudden, unwanted visitors and watch the redness and swelling reduce within hours. I suffer from spots on my shoulders when I’m stressed, and when an angry intruder showed up yesterday, I applied the treatment mask to the spot, left it on all day (didn’t wash it off because it was a relatively small surface area), had a shower in the evening and found that whilst it was slightly red still, the actual shape and bump had reduced to almost nothing. SUCCESS! My skin has really been suffering over the past few weeks because I’m on the verge of a quarter life crisis, so I’ve been using this everyday and have seen a real reduction in stress spots and uneven, blotchy skin tone. 10/10 would buy again.
Kevyn Aucoin Celestial Skin Liquid Lighting - 20% off
Art Deco Blusher - 30% off
ArtDeco isn’t a brand I had heard of before, and I’m not typically one for bougie packaging, but finding that my bronzer can be a little heavy in the winter months and wanting to try and new blusher, I gave this product a go. I’ve never used a tri-coloured blusher before so initially I was a bit confused as to what to do (bear with me, I’m a blusher novice). Just use one colour? Swirl them all together? Dip into them one at a time and layer up? In the end I swirled them all together, and WOW, this baby is pigmented.
The colour pay off was amazing, and being the novice that I am, I unsurprisingly applied too much in the first swoop and had to dull it down with some translucent powder. The deep berry shade is beautifully complimentary, however, and I found that applying a little blusher to the apples of my cheeks (cringe, hate that saying) breathed a little more life into my skin than bronzer could do alone. Again, this is a product that is going to last forever and with three different colours, you can adapt the shade to suit your look or mood. A surprise winner for me. Let me know if you’re planning on bagging some items in the up to 30% off Black Friday Beauty Bay bonanza!
