There’s no better time than the dawn of a new year to stand back and reorganise your beauty cupboard. Yanno, discard the tube of mascara that went out of date circa 2018, recycle those empty bottles of shampoo, pass on the perfumes you rarely wear and streamline your collection of foundation.
Hoping to shop the best Boxing Day beauty sales? They’re still in full swing, so here’s what’s on offer…
But we’d be lying if we said a sanitised makeup bag squashed a desire for newness. Often, a sizeable clear-out draws attention to the products in our haircare and skincare routines we’re missing. Plus, it highlights which products need replacing (and sends us into a deep, dark hole of new beauty product goodness).
Enter: our edit of the best Boxing Day beauty sales to shop ahead of the new year – because what better time to shop for the best in luxury makeup, skincare and haircare than when everything is heavily discounted? If you need to stock up on your favourite moisturiser, you’ve been desperate to try an LED face mask for *time* or you’ve hit pan on your eye cream, now is the time to take the plunge.
Luckily, the Boxing Day sales are notoriously BIG NEWS, with many retailers offering price-drops that are just as big as their Black Friday offers (!). Of course, under normal circumstances, the shopping event would see masses of eager shoppers form (not so) orderly queues outside their favourite high street stores – elbows at the ready. But this year, things will look different. The Boxing Day sales (which, despite their name, actually run well into January) will be taking place online with more people choosing to avoid Coronavirus risks and shop from the comfort of their sofas.
Sure, spending your entire festive break scrolling through the winter sales probably isn’t recommended… but with fewer plans that usual this year, we’d be lying if we said we weren’t going to be making a few purchases – especially now we’ve seen just how good the deals are.
Keep scrolling for everything you need to know about 2020’s Boxing Day beauty sales before they end, plus the deals to make a beeline for. Don’t say we don’t treat you.
PS: We’ve also rounded up the best Boxing Day fashion sales for your perusal, including discounts at Net-A-Porter, Mulberry, Other Stories, H&M and more.
Does Charlotte Tilbury do a Boxing Day sale?
Kinda. This year, Charlotte Tilbury doesn’t have a sale – as such – but she is offering a FREE full size Charlotte Darling Easy Eye Palette worth £45 with all orders over £125.
Does Beauty Bay do a Boxing Day sale?
Yes! In previous years, the home of more than 7,000 trending makeup, skincare and haircare products has launched huge Boxing Day sales. This year, they have up to 50% off Boxing Day sale with up to half price off brands including Mario Badescu, Kevyn Aucoin, Coco Eve and Jeffree Star.
Will Boxing Day sales be better than Black Friday?
Typically, you find the best Black Friday deals on higher ticket items with prices significantly less than they are in other sales. Except, perhaps, Boxing Day. And when it comes to beauty, Boxing Day beauty sales are often just as good as Cyber Week sales – if not better. You know what to do.
