Hello Beauty Lovers!
It's November the fourth and that means there's going to be fireworks in the air for a number of reasons! We've got Bonfire Night tomorrow and on Monday 7th November, entries for the 2022 Scandinavia Global Makeup Awards officially close! This is the fourth year we've run this beauty awards and it is getting bigger and better each year! We've seen so many beauty, skincare, cosmetics and haircare brands enter for this year's Beauty Awards for the Nordic regions.
It is also our last awards for 2022 and winners will be announced in December. As ever, we try to give you as much as possible for your win. Entrants not only receive an e-badge, but also a printed certificate and also a free entry in our online magazine with text and image about your well deserved award winning product. You are also mentioned on Global Makeup Awards' website too as well as highly promoted across our social media channels.
If you've yet to enter, you still can do so via this page of our site.
This is such a cozy time of year, we love seeing all the Christmas beauty buys in the shops, the Christmas advent calendars brought out and getting ready for the big Black Friday Beauty Deals. We'll be mentioning some of those big Black Friday deals in next blog, but in the meantime, we'd thought we'd show off some of our favourite beauty advent calendars - perfect for yourself or maybe for your mum, sister or other half.
Our top two are:
SPACE NK BEAUTY ADVENT CALENDAR (worth £770) and available for £172 as of this moment on their SPACE NK website.
It's full of cult classics such as OLAPLEX, Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick, Drunk Elephant as well as 2022 Global Green Beauty Awards winner - The Ordinary's Niacinamide.
Second on the list we adore:
LOOKFANTASTIC Beauty Advent Calendar 2022. Worth over £500, yours for £95.
It is jam packed with Global Makeup Award winning brands such as INIKA, Aroma Active, The Ordinary, and Revolution:
How to Find the Best Black Friday Deals - everything Beauty!
Today’s blog is going to be a little different to ones I’ve posted recently where I’ve written about past winners of the Global MakeUp Awards, their stories and their goals for the future.
With the famous (or infamous!) Black Friday approaching, some of us will have possibly delayed buying products which we have wanted in hope of getting a good discount among the Black Friday sales - and we have especially had our eyes on everything beauty!
Certainly the news has focused in recent years on the negative sides of the sales, concentrating on arguments over widescreen TVs and impossibly long queues but that is probably misrepresentative of the bigger picture. Anyway, today let’s bounce around some ideas on how to make the most of the sales!
Now, the first piece of advice that I can give is to start looking for bargains now. Not only do lots of companies start their sales early (this can get them extra sales and spread out their extra work load) but it also gives us a chance to check pre-sales prices and see if the deals are really as good as they look! We all know that artificially inflating prices then advertising a massive discount is one of the oldest tricks in the book so make sure to check prices across different retailers! Another good reason to start your search is now that there is a lower chance of the product you want being sold out!
These sales are a good way for us to get our Christmas Shopping done without having to brave the packed high streets on Christmas Eve! I’ve been there and it’s all a bit much! So, if we know any little people who might appreciate a toy or two under the Christmas Tree, we could also consider getting their gifts during the Black Friday sales. Children’s toys are notoriously expensive so a little planning might well save us a fair amount of money!
If you are having trouble choosing what toys to buy, you’ll find that there are a lot of websites that offer up to date advice on toys for children of all different age groups. Simply searching Google for Best Christmas presents for a ten year old will give you some great inspiration. I’ve just checked and there are lots of things my kids would absolutely love! However, most of them are linked to Amazon via affiliate links so you may not find Black Friday Deals this way! But many products on Amazon are sold via small independent shops which you can search for directly. You may well find them at a better price this way and they could be advertising Black Friday deals for direct sales! This also avoids putting more money in billionaires pockets!
If you are looking for a present for a loved one, here at Global Makeup Awards we recommend the L’Occitane reusable calendar. This is a wonderful green alternative to regular calendars. Check it out here! It is an amazing beauty buy and perfect for a gift for any woman in your life - mum, sister, girlfriend or wife. Not only is it filled with amazing beauty products but you can also year after year and put your own treats in it. It comes in at a hefty £160 (worth £236) but it contains 24 amazing beauty gifts. It includes all of the following:
This L'occitane 2021 Christmas advent calendar contains:
• 75ml Almond Shower Oil
• 5ml Herbae par L'OCCITANE Eau de Parfum
• 50ml Shea Intensive Hand Balm Travel Size
• 70ml Verbena Shower Gel
• 30ml Shea Butter Hand Cream
• 15ml Almond Supple Skin Oil
• 75ml Intensive Repair Conditioner
• 15g Almond Crunchy Muesli Scrub
• 2.8g Sunday Pinknic Intense Fruity Lipstick
• 100ml Lavender Foaming Bath
• 15ml Relaxing Pillow Mist
• 50ml Almond Milk Concentrate
• 12ml Shea Ultra Rich Lip Balm Certified Organic
• 8ml Divine Cream
• 10ml Verbena Eau de Toilette
• 7.5ml Néroli & Orchidée Eau de Toilette
• 75ml Intensive Repair Shampoo
• 30ml 30ml Oil-To-Milk Facial Make-up Remover
• 30ml Almond Delicious Hands
• 30ml Immortelle Essential Water
• 8ml Precious Cream
• 30ml Shea Butter Foot Cream
• 5ml Overnight Reset Serum
• The Petit Remedy.
We personally already love the Relaxing Pillow Mist and the Shea Intensive Hand Balm. We love how it is also a complete range of products, from lipsticks, to shampoo to hand-cream to foot-cream. So you won't be ending up with duplicates of the same 'type' of product. This truly is the best Christmas gift for any beauty lover with all these must-have products.
Wow, I’m out of time again! Already! Well, all the best with your deal hunting! Do let me know how you get on and share any bargains you find!
Ciao for now
