No matter the season, I always have my eye out for the best beauty items on the market.
Lots of unique products hit the shelves this time of the year which gives me the chance to make new beauty discoveries. I also can’t help but snag a few tried-and-true favorites that have landed in my routine year after year.
But whether it’s a new item or one that has been around for a while, I’m 10x more likely to make a purchase if a product is on sale.
It gets me into trouble sometimes (I only have so much storage space!), but it also allows me to share some of my favorite finds with you!
Today, I wanted to list some of my favorite makeup, skincare, hair and beauty deals of the season.
Trust me, these are some discounts you won’t want to pass up!

How to Find Deals on Beauty Items Online
While Black Friday used to be the single largest shopping day of the year, there are other massive sales occurring before and after the retail holiday.
This year, I have my eyes on Ulta’s Early Black Friday Sale which starts this evening at 8:00PM CT. But if you don’t want to wait, you can head straight to their online sale section.
Macy’s also has some early Black Friday deals going on right now. From makeup to hair tools, you’re likely to find something worth a look!
Oh, and don’t forget to check out other retailers that are known for selling beauty items like Target and Sephora. I discovered a few discounts that you won’t want to miss.
To make sure you don’t miss any of this year’s top sales, sign up for company newsletters or call your local store to see if they have any in-store discounts.
My Favorite Skincare Deals
Winter wreaks havoc on my skin. Anyone else? The cold air tends to make my face really dry and dull. So, I listed a couple of my favorite beauty items for winter along with some other noteworthy deals you can snag!
Clinique makeup and skincare just works well for me. I also love that they have a variety of products for every skin type.
This cleanser is on sale for just $15 right now. It’s made to gently cleanse your skin without drying it out!
The Ultra Repair Cream from First Aid Beauty is extremely popular — and for a good reason! You can use it to help hydrate your dry skin which is all to common during the colder months. I also like that it promises to help relieve irritation and itching.
I can’t stand going through multiple steps to take off my makeup. While I love dressing up a little, it’s a hassle to have to scrub and scrub to get a clean face.
That’s why I recommend looking at this cleanser from Peter Thomas Roth (one of my favorite skincare brands for years). It uses hyaluronic acid to hydrate skin while taking off makeup at the same time!
When we talk about wrinkles, we typically think of our faces. But the fact of the matter is, our necks need some attention as well! This Age Reverse Antiaging Toning Neck Cream is designed for that fragile neck and décolletage skin — helping tackle signs of aging.
It’s a little bit of an investment, but you can get it for over $25 off this holiday season.
The Aquaphor Healing Ointment is a classic that has been around for years. It can be used on elbows, hands, lips… almost anything. I love it for my fingers which get dry and cracked during the winter.
And the fact that it’s on sale is a huge win in my book!
I love the Philosophy brand which is why I wanted to point out this Cleanser Set. It comes with two one-step facial cleansers which makes them optimal for gifting. Plus, it’s nearly 30% off right now!
Does anyone else have dull complexion during the colder months? I surely don’t have the bright skin I have during the spring and summer. The Get Your Glow On Skin-Brightening Peel Off Mask is made to help with that dullness.
You can snag it for under $6 and all you have to do is let it sit on your skin for a few minutes before rinsing it off.
If you haven’t heard of Laneige I feel honored to make the introduction. Their most popular product is called the Lip Sleeping Mask which can completely repair dry lips overnight.
But this Laneige Ready, Set, HYDRATE! kit? It looks just as great! It comes with three products and it’s currently on sale.
Makeup and Beauty Deals To Check Out
As the weather cools, I tend to swap out some of my makeup items. Warmer colors to darker colors, lighter products to help my skin breathe, and more.
The It Cosmetics brushes are some of my favorite brushes on the market. Right now, a lot of them are on sale for just $10 on the Ulta website! They have everything from foundation brushes to blush brushes. Can’t decide? Opt for one of their sets!
Clinique Happy is one of the most popular fragrances to date! This kit includes a hand cream and two perfumes in different sizes. Great for travel or for keeping at home.
If you don’t have a brightening serum or mask, you can bring some life to your skin with blush! I like this Tarte Blush Cheek Palette that includes a bit of shimmer and a few color choices. And get this… it’s 50% off.
The Clinique Stay Matte Sheer Pressed Powder will give you light, sheer coverage for even skin tone. One of my favorite things about this one is that it comes in a compact container with a mirror — making it easy to take along in your bag.
Snag it now for $10 off the original price.
Some people skip this step of their makeup routine, but I find it to be pretty important. It’s the primer step and it can help your makeup last much longer!
The Smashbox Photo Finish Primer is available for 30% off and it’s smooth, lightweight and easy to apply.
I love Clinique’s lip products which is why I was thrilled to find this 5-Piece Kisses Gift Set. It includes five beautiful colors from coral to a bright, bold red. It’s actually a special set only made for Macy’s and currently 20% off!
Have you heard the Baby Foot Exfoliant Foot Peel hype? It’s one of the bestselling products on Amazon and right now, you can get it on sale at Ulta.
It doesn’t require any effort on your end, but it will leave your feet feeling like a baby’s bottom!
Here’s a stocking stuffer idea. This Essie Nail Color Mini Travel Kit comes with three mini nail polishes in some super cute colors. Separate them or keep them all together for a fun holiday gift.
My Go-To Hair Care Picks
Similar to your skin, your hair can take a hit when the colder months roll around. That’s why I wanted to share a few hydrating hair beauty items along with some tools that will help you combat static, brittle hair and more.
The It’s A 10 Miracle Leave-In Product is crafted to repair damaged and dry hair while smoothing out your hair. I struggle with static and flyaways during winter so this seems like a product that would help.
I’m all for triying out new, budget-friendly items when they hit the market. But if I want something that will last for years, I’m more than willing to spend a little more money.
This T3 Cura Luxe Hair Dryer could be a good choice if your looking for a long-lasting hair tool! Plus it’s only $150 right now.
The Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer is another one of those Amazon bestsellers. Instead of using a hair dryer and a brush (which can make styling difficult), this tool combines them into one!
Want to check it out for yourself? Find it at Target for 30% off.
Don’t forget the dry shampoo! It’s a lifesaver for me when I get super busy. If I don’t have time to fully wash my hair, a quick spritz of dry shampoo makes it look fresh again! I found this Dove Dry Shampoo on sale for under $5 which seems like a great deal to me.
If you’re trying to change up your beauty routine this season now might be a good time to stock up. While I haven’t tried all these products above, I want to help out with your holiday shopping in the best way that I can.
