Escentual is one of my favourite places for premium beauty. With Black Friday fast approaching, what better time to share some of their best deals? Each of these products will be at least 50% off from this Friday the 29th to the 2nd of December. There is also a site wide code ‘BLACK10’ for 10% off of all full price items.
It’s the perfect time to treat yourself and also to grab some Christmas presents. Here are some of the premium French beauty brands with the best Black Friday discounts.
AVENE SOOTHING RADIANCE MASK
WAS £13.00, WILL BE £6.50
A new, radiance boosting face mask that soothes and comforts dull and dehydrated skin. It’s gentle, and absolutely perfect for this time of year.
AVENE REVITALISING NOURISHING CREAM
WAS £17.00, WILL BE £8.50
Another Avenue product designed to promote radiance and rehydrate the skin. This is a cream which instantly and comfortably sinks into the skin, the perfect product to add to both morning and evening routines.
AVENE HYDRANCE AQUA GEL
WAS £20.00, WILL BE £10.00
Gel-creams are easily one of my favourite moisturiser textures. This one is multi-purpose and can double as both an eye-cream and overnight mask, leaving the skin looking incredibly dewey.
LA ROCHE-POSAY EFFACLAR DUO
WAS £17.00, WILL BE £8.50
Black Friday deals aren’t just for generic beauty, but also for targeted skincare. Best Beauty Stylist Winner 2017, this updated formula corrects and hydrates for improved skin in 4 weeks. Not only does it correct the appearance of acne prone skin, it also works to unclog pores, control shine and refine texture.
LA ROCHE-POSAY REDERMIC RETINOL ANTI-AGEING CONCENTRATE INTENSIVE
WAS £32.00, WILL BE £16.00
Another targeted skincare product, this retinol corrects wrinkles, premature sun damage and uneven skin tone. I’m now in my mid-twenties and so for a while now I’ve been adding in the odd anti-ageing product to my routine.
When using retinol products skin becomes more sensitive so it’s important to be even more conscious of sun damage. Even at this time of year it’s important to wear SPF during the day if you’re going to be outside- I recommend some of my favourites in my Vacation Beauty Essentials post.
VICHY DERMABLEND SETTING POWDER
WAS £18.00, WILL BE £9.00
Recommended by Dermatologists, this powder is micro-fine and reinforces makeup for up to 16 hours. Although it comes with a powder puff, I use a Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge to bake parts of my face with it. I typically bake under my eyes and underneath my contour.
VICHY AQUALIA THERMAL REHYDRATING SERUM
WAS £25.00, WILL BE £12.50
Pre-moisturising concentrates aren’t typically seen as essential, but I love them. They’re perfect, especially at this time of year, to ensure that as much hydration as possible penetrates the skin. This is lightweight, silky, and not only hydrates but plumps too.
GIVENCHY ROUGE INTERDIT
WAS £25.50, WILL BE £12.75
A limited edition lipstick in an adaptive hue which reacts to pH, creating a colour unique to the wearer. As premium lipsticks should be, this is beautifully packaged, long-lasting and comfortable to wear. This would make a great Christmas gift for any premium beauty lover (keep an eye out for my Ultimate Gift Guide for her coming soon, for more inspiration).
NUXE HUILE PRODIGIEUSE & REVE DE MIEL HONEY LIP BALM DUO
WAS £40.00, WILL BE £20.00
The perfect duo, both boasting cult beauty status. I reviewed the Reve de Miel balm not too long ago, so you may already know how much I love it. Huile Prodigieuse is a dry oil for use on hair and skin.
Not only is it nourishing, it also gives a gorgeous shine to the skin and smells absolutely delicious.
If you’ve spotted any other great Black Friday discounts on premium products then do let me know- I’m always on the look out for a bargain!
