When is Black Friday 2022?
This year, Black Friday is on 25 November 2022. It’s traditionally the Friday after Thanksgiving is celebrated in the US. However, it's well worth keeping an eye on retailer websites throughout the month of November as you'll often find deals, discounts and promo codes launching well before the day itself.
How to find the best Black Friday beauty and perfume deals
"I have already started buying gifts but have my eye on a fitness watch, a new bed and maybe some beauty items if there are any really good deals." - EatPrayYoga

"Superdrug has a number of perfumes half price." - freakydeaky
From the latest gadgets to designer perfume, beauty goods can be pricey so it's no wonder they're a big hit on Black Friday. We'll be doing the hard work for you and updating this page with all the best deals we can find on makeup, haircare, beauty electronics, perfume and more, so do bookmark this page and check back as we'll be adding the biggest and most popular discounts as they go live.
If you have a particular brand or retailer in mind, signing up to receive their emails may also lead to a tip-off about a hot sale or keep you in the know about the top bargains. It's worth shopping around to find the best savings though, and that's exactly what we'll be hunting down for you on all of our Black Friday pages.
Mumsnetters usually recommend planning ahead, particularly if you're doing a large chunk of your Christmas shopping in the sales, and sitting down at your laptop armed with a list of what you need so you can stay focused.

Tips for finding the best Black Friday beauty and perfume deals
When it comes to shopping tips, nothing compares to real tricks and hacks from those who've been there. So we took to our forums to find out the ways Mumsnet users shop the Black Friday sales:
"Research exactly what you are wanting in advance and find a few different models as not all will be included... Recommend to start looking start of November as retailers have been doing Black November recently!" - Justanotheruser01
"Plan in advance what you actually want to buy. Do all your research in advance." - tectonicplates
"Do your homework and make sure you know the prices beforehand. Some just do 24 hour sale but others run their sale for a week. As long as you know what you want and how much the usual price is, you can't go too far wrong." - lahlah11
We'd also recommend signing up for Amazon Prime if you're planning on heading there for some of your beauty buys as this gives you free next day delivery on many products.

What is Black Friday?
Black Friday is a sales event that sees many shops, both in store and online, offer discounts to customers. Since 2010, when Amazon kicked off its first Black Friday promotion, the sale period has grown in popularity thanks to impressive offers and its proximity to Christmas, meaning many people are often searching for specific products (plus the odd impulse buy, of course).
When did Black Friday start?
Originating in America, the Black Friday sales started as a one-day only sales event following Thanksgiving. As many people had this Friday off, it was a big opportunity for shops to lure customers in with big savings and discounted stock. The term itself wasn't first used to describe this shopping day though, and it's thought that it was initially used in the 1960s to describe busy traffic during this period.
What is Cyber Monday?
Cyber Monday is always on the Monday following Black Friday, and as they're close together and the sales continue over the weekend, they tend to be classed as the same sales period.
Traditionally, the main difference between Black Friday and Cyber Monday was that the Friday was centred around in store promotions and, as the name suggests, Cyber Monday was more about getting a great deal online. Since many of us now do a lot of shopping online anyway (especially since the coronavirus pandemic began), this distinction has faded, as many retailers now offer online discounts on Black Friday too.
When is Cyber Monday 2022?
This year Cyber Monday falls on Monday 28th November. It's another day to get some great savings, but remember the deals will be beginning much earlier so you don't have to wait until the Monday to bag a beauty bargain.
