If there’s one website I’m always refreshing during the Black Friday period, it’s John Lewis. As a beauty editor, I’m always asked what Black Friday deals I’m shopping on the likes of Cult Beauty and Sephora, but in my opinion, John Lewis stocks some of the best fragrance, skincare and makeup brands on the market, and the discounts never disappoint. In fact, this year I’m even more impressed than usual, as John Lewis has actually started its Black Friday sale early, and trust me when I say that these deals are not to be missed.

In order to make your life a little bit easier during the busy sale period, I’ve rounded up all of my top beauty buys below, along with all of the information you need about the John Lewis Black Friday sale. So, what are you waiting for? Keep on scrolling and treat yourself to that luxury perfume or cult skincare product that you’ve had your eye on for months…

This year, Black Friday falls on Friday 24 November 2023. However, many retailers tend to start their sales earlier in the month.

John Lewis’s Black Friday sale has started early this year, with some incredible offers already live on the website, such as 20% off Tom Ford and Aqua di Parma fragrances. If previous years are anything to go by, we can expect lots of different discounts throughout the month of November.

As a beauty editor, I don’t believe in buying things you don’t truly want or need during the Black Friday period. Instead, I encourage everyone to make considered purchases, and look for those luxury items that you know have been on your wishlist for quite a while. For me, it’s a great time to invest in a designer fragrance or a slightly more expensive skincare product that I wouldn’t pick up on a daily basis, but that I know I will use all the time. I also think it’s the perfect time to get your Christmas shopping started, as there are often great deals on fragrance and makeup sets. If you want to know what John Lewis Black Friday beauty buys I actually rate, then keep on scrolling…

This is probably my favourite fragrance from YSL, thanks to warm and sensual notes of white musk, vanilla, orange blossom, jasmine sambac and lavender. You can currently save 20%, so now is the perfect time to invest in your new winter perfume.

To me, there is nothing more special than a Tom Ford fragrance, and my first choice from the brand would be the Lost Cherry Eau de Parfum. Of course you can expect hints of cherry, but these notes are perfectly balanced with honey-like Turkish rose, bitter almond and smooth sandalwood. It’s warm, it’s sweet, and it’s currently 20% off.

If you are a fan of luxury fragrances, then you are probably familiar with Italian brand Acqua di Parma. John Lewis have an incredible selection of scents, and with the Black Friday discount, I will be snapping up the Colonia Eau de Cologne, a fresh fragrance with notes of grapefruit, mint, cinnamon and leather.

£100 off of the Dyson hair straighteners? Yes please! I doubt that these will be in stock for long, so if you’ve been thinking about investing, now might be the time.

This BaByliss hair tool is great as it comes with four different attachments so that you can create a range of styles.

I’m all about making practical purchases on Black Friday, which is why I’ve got my eye on this electric toothbrush from Philips. Let’s face it, that saving is almost too good to miss.

Fragrance sets make the perfect gift, but they are also a great way to discover a brand and decide which full-size fragrance you would like to invest in. This Gucci set comes with four of the brand’s iconic perfumes, so you will be practically spoilt for choice.

If you’re yet to smell a fragrance by Maison Margiela, then I highly recommend investing in this discovery set straight away. Trust me, you will love every single scent.

There’s something so intoxicating about Prada’s Paradoxe perfume, and I will be gifting my loved ones this stunning set which also features a chic travel spray and the cutest body cream.

This is, hands down, the best cleansing balm ever for melting away makeup and leaving your skin silky soft. This Black Friday, John Lewis are offering the Elemis Pro-Collagen Skincare Wonders Gift Set for just £80 (that’s half price, btw) when you spend £80 or more on Elemis, so you can upgrade your entire skincare routine. All you have to do is enter the promo code ELEMISKIT at checkout. Easy, right?

Another one of my favourite cleansers is the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish™ Hot Cloth Cleanser, and John Lewis currently have an incredible deal where you can save £10 when you spend £50, save £20 when you spend £75 or save £40 when you spend £100 on Liz Earle products. Again, all you have to do is enter the code LIZOFFER at checkout.

I’m pretty sure our whole team is obsessed with the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair serum, and this set contains one full-sized bottle and two mini bottles that are perfect for travelling. Worth £111, you can get it for just £69, and what’s more is that if you spend £50 or more on Estée Lauder products you can get the Estée Lauder Blockbuster Gift Set for £85 with the code ESTEE85.

I’m very fussy when it comes to mascara, but I always have the Lancôme Hypnôse one in my makeup bag. Similar to John Lewis’s skincare offers, you can get the Lancôme Beauty Box Gift Set for £85 when you spend £45 or more on the brand with the code LANCOME85.

This lipstick went viral on TikTok, and for good reason. The shade is so flattering, and this Black Friday, you can use the code CLINIQUE75 to get the Best of Clinique Beauty Gift Set for £75 when you spend £45 or more on the brand.

This cracker is the perfect gift for any beauty lover, and will help you feel as glam as ever for the festive season. It contains a mini Elie Saab Le Parfum Eau de Parfum, a mini Benefit Fan Fest Mascara and a mini Carolina Herrera Fabulous Kiss Satin Lipstick. Worth £50, you can get all three products for just £18.
