    The Biggest Black Friday Skincare Sale Mistakes to Avoid

    • 3 min read

    Black Friday skincare sales at Retail Box are nearly here, bringing plenty of deals on a wide range of products from leading brands. The season of savings brings anticipation for anyone wanting to get reduced products and great deals. With that said, the frenzy of discounts and one-off offers can lead to rushed decisions, impulse buys, overspending and overlooking quality. Whether you’re waiting for your favourite serums to go on sale or wanting to try new brands, knowing what not to do is key. In this guide, we’re sharing a few tips to help you get the most from Black Friday skin product discounts this November. 

    Watch Out for These Black Friday Skincare Sales Mistakes

    Some of the most common mistakes made during Black Friday include the following:

    Not Joining Waitlists

    One of the biggest mistakes shoppers make is not signing up for waitlists. At Retail Box and most other stores, sales begin a little before 24 November 2023 - the official Black Friday date. This shopping event takes place the day after Thanksgiving. While it may have begun in the United States, it has become a global event that brings savings over the course of November. Early access gives you the chance to get your hands on exclusive deals. If you’re not on a waitlist or you haven’t marked the start date of sales on your calendar, you have a big chance of missing out on deals.

    Getting Supermarket Deals

    You’ll be overloaded with Black Friday sales everywhere this month, including supermarkets and malls. As tempting as it may be to grab products off the shelves as they’re marked down, be very wary of going for store-bought products. This applies to any time of the year and not just sales events. These products are seldom made to meet the needs of your skin. Often, they contain preservatives and other nasty additives. Always make sure that you invest in quality products - even if you have to spend a little more. 

    Choosing Cheap Products

    Remember - you get what you pay for and during Black Friday, this is especially true. Even when products are on sale, high-quality products are seldom going to have the same low prices that you may see on supermarket shelves. Always put quality over price. The products you choose are an investment in your skin’s health. Choosing products on cost alone is never good if you want to avoid skin reactions and other issues. 

    Not Choosing Trusted Brands

    Trusted brands likeNimue andVitaderm have built their reputations on delivering high-quality, effective skincare products made to meet specific needs. These brands invest in research and use quality ingredients to ensure that their products meet the highest standards. During Black Friday sales, make sure that you always look for deals from trusted brands to ensure you're getting products that are safe. This way you will also have more chance of getting results, keeping your skin happy and healthy.

    Making Impulsive Decisions

    Black Friday is designed to create a sense of urgency that leads to impulsive buying decisions. It's easy to get caught up in the hype and purchase products you don't need or that aren't right for your skin. To avoid making impulse buys, make a list of the products you need or have been wanting to try, and stick to the list. This will help you stay focused and make purchases you actually need instead of things that catch your eye.

    Not Setting a Clear Budget

    Without a clear budget, it's easy to overspend during a major sales event. Even if you are getting great deals, you should never go into any sale without knowing how much you want to spend. This is why it is so important to buy what you need and not random products that you likely won’t use. Set a budget for your skincare purchases and stick to it carefully. This will help you make more conscious choices and avoid regret later. A good deal is only truly good if it suits your skincare needs and budget. Claiming discounts on products you won’t use ends up costing you money that could you have spent on other things.
