It is time for my ULTIMATE List of Korean Beauty Black Friday Sales 2018! This list will be updated regularly until Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2018 is over, since at this point in time, many sellers haven’t released all the info on their K-beauty Black Friday sales. Anyway – here are all the Black Friday K-beauty deals for 2018 I could find!
NOTE: This is an OUTDATED list from a previous year – please refer to the NEW Black Friday list for 2019!!!
Gosh, isn’t this time of year just so exciting? From beauty advent calendars to gift guides, us bloggers finally have our hands full when it comes to creating content that is popular and relevant. Summer is always a bit of a bummer in that regard, since you guys prefer to hang out in the sun rather than reading a blog – makes sense, I guess. So, as a blogger from Germany, I still find the intense atmosphere around Black Friday somewhat…strange, but I do love me a good sale, and so it’s become a yearly highlight to compare all the K-beauty Black Friday Sales.
Last year, my list of these sales was super popular with you guys, and so of course I’m going to provide a new running list of the Korean Beauty Black Friday Sales 2018. Just like last year, I am mostly going to focus on sellers that provide international shipping, and I am also going to add larger European K-beauty shops that have any Black Friday deals, since a large chunk of my audience is from Europe.
This list will start out small-ish, but will probably get bigger as we approach 23rd of November, the official date for Black Friday 2018. Alright, let’s get started with the list of Korean Beauty Black Friday Sales 2018!
Korean Beauty Black Friday Sales 2018: Korean and Asian Beauty Shops
So, Stylekorean* is going all out, with a full MONTH of Korean Beauty Black Friday Sales 2018! The only thing that is a bit annoying: almost every day has a different sale, so you need to shop very strategically to get the most out of the deals.
Here is a list of the Stylekorean Black Friday sales that are still upcoming:
- 16-18 Nov: 50% 3CE
- 19-20 Nov: 50% Etude House
- 21-22 Nov: 50% off Innisfree
- 23-26 Nov: Black Friday Coupon deal, all orders 100$ and up will get 20% off, orders less than 100$ get 10%
- 27 Nov: Mask Day, 50% all masks
- 28-30 Nov: 40% off Too Cool For School
Cyber Monday UPDATE: You can still get 10% off with coupon code “bkf10” on orders under 100$, and coupon code “bkf20” for orders over 100$ to get 20% off!
I mean, seriously – are there any better Korean Beauty Black Friday Sales out there than the Wishtrend* Black Friday Sale?! Well, at least the past two years, Wishtrend has always delivered in terms of deals and extra benefits during Black Friday. This year, the Wishtrend Black Friday Sale 2018 will commence on the 19th of November and last until the 25th! UPDATE: Please refer to my additional blog post about the Wishtrend Black Friday Sale 2018 for ALL the deals and coupon codes!
- Up to 80% discount on brands such as By Wishtrend, Klairs, Cosrx
- Special package deals with up to 60% discounts (those are always amazing!)
- Lowered prices for free international shipping: 59$ and over gives you free standard shipping (normally 69$), and 139$ and over free expedited shipping
- Additional discounts on top of all the brand deals depending on how much you spend, from 3% to 8%
- Free gifts, samples as well as full sized masks – the more you spend, the better the gifts (e.g. Klairs sheet masks)
- A scratch card with a chance to win a 150$ voucher, added to all purchases
- Use my affiliate code “AFFBLACKFRIDAY” for an additional 5% discount
- There will probably be special discount codes to receive some of these benefits, so make sure to check back here once I release the full details in my separate blog post! I’ll link it here as soon as it’s released
I’m not super excited about the Testerkorea Black Friday Sale 2018, but there is still a smaller selection of reduced products that you can find on the site. Their Korean Beauty Black Friday Sales 2018 only goes until the 18th of November, so maybe there will be something more spectacular coming after for actual Black Friday?
UPDATE: Nope, nothing spectacular happening really – the Black Friday Sale 2018 at Testerkorea is now over, and I don’t see any exciting Cyber Monday 2018 as of now.
I love this curated K-beauty shop! Bemused Korea is doing a whole hosts of cool things for their customers during the Korean Beauty Black Friday sales 2018. Depending on how much you spend, you can receive extra benefits such as freebies, free international shipping and extra discounts. Their K-beauty Black Friday sale 2018 has already started, and will last until 26th of November.
Here a list of all the benefits for the Bemused Korea Black Friday sale:
- All orders: extra sample set, 1 free sheet mask
- Over 40$: extra sample set, 1 free sheet mask, free shipping (K-Paket)
- Over 50$: extra sample set, 2 free sheet masks, free shipping (K-Paket)
- Over 75$: extra sample set, 2 free sheetmasks, free shipping (K-Paket), full size Oneoseven face soap,
- Over 100$: extra sample set, 2 free sheetmasks, free shipping (K-Paket), full size Oneoseven face soap, Atoclassic Real Tonic Soothing First Toner (80ml), deluxe travel size
- Over 150$: all of the above, plus 5% extra discount with code “EXTRA5LOVE”
- Over 200$: all of the above, plus free EMS shipping!
It’s not clear yet if Yesstyle* will have a Korean Beauty Black Friday Sale 2018, but there is a Thanksgiving sale going on, which gives you 12% discount on orders over 35$. Use coupon code “2018THANKS” (valid till 18 November). Make sure to double-check item prices, since Yesstyle has a tendency to hike up prices and then pretend they are giving you massive discounts! Compare with other retailers before you buy!
So, there IS a Yesstyle Black Friday Sale 2018,* with 15% discount on orders over US$35 when you use coupon code “2018BLACKFRI“. The sale starts today, 19 November and lasts until the 24 November.
Cyber Monday UPDATE: Yesstyle* has started their Cyber Monday Sale 2018, with the same benefits as the Black Friday Sale, so 15% off your entire order, this time with the coupon code “2018CYBER.”
Etude House Global
Etude House is currently having a “pre Black Friday sale”, with a 15% discount when you use the coupon code “READYTOBUY“. You have to be a registered member to apply the discount, whatever that means. I’m guessing that there will be more offers once Black Friday hits, I’ll add any info here when I find out more.
UPDATE: The Etude House Black Friday Sale has started! It lasts until the 23 Nov, and you can get 50% off with code “BLACKFRIDAY50“, as well as an additional 10% off with “ADDITIONAL10“, though I’m not sure what the “additional” really applies to since the 50% coupon says “no double discount”. Just try it out and see what happens, I guess! Coupon codes only valid for registered members.
Beauty Net Korea
This is one of those Korean Beauty Black Friday Sales 2018 that isn’t fully wowing me, to be honest, but I’ll still of course include it here! Beauty Net Korea is having a Black Friday Sale with random items being discounted – you’ll have to scroll through the list to see if there is anything worthwile there for you. There ARE some items from Dr. Jart+ and Tosowoong in the mix, so that souns promising!
Even though I am an affiliate, I have little to no info about the Beautytap* Black Friday Sales 2018 to come, sigh. What I do know for now is that Beauty offers Black Friday Week Sales throughout this week, kicking this event off with a 50% discount on select Jayjun and Mediheal products! This particular sale lasts until 26 November. I’ll add any other Beautytap deals I can find as soon as I hear about them!
UPDATE: Beautytap has added a 40% off sale for 3CE and CELLNCO, as well as 20% off su:m37 products and 50% of The Face Shop Rice Water Bright cleansing oils! You can also get 40% off all Swanicoco products* (which are awesome – check out my review of their amazing FGF Ampoule!), 40% off Keep Cool,* and 20% off The History of Whoo.* Sales run through 26 Nov.
Cyber Monday UPDATE: Oh wow, nice one, Beautytap!* For Cyber Monday 2018, Beautytap is offering 20% off your entire order with coupon code “CYBERTAP“! Be quick, since this offer only lasts until midnight EST!
I’ve never ordered from them, but Kmall24 has a great selection of hard to find K-beauty brands such as my beloved German-Korean skincare hero Ärztin. They are having Korean Beauty Black Friday Sales 2018 all through November, with different events each day, pretty much!
So, it looks like Innisfree World also takes part in the Korean Beauty Black Friday Sales 2018! They are offering 50% off on their Bija and Cica line, as well as 40-50% off sheet masks, and 30% off a number of other products. The sale lasts until 30 November!
Alright, so RoseRose, a Korean wholeseller with amazing prices but also pretty steep shipping costs (so compare prices carefully after adding the shipping fee to your cart!) apparently has a Korean Beauty Black Friday Sale 2018, with some pretty interesting discounts on select items. However, at the moment (21 Nov) the site is mostly down, probably due to heavy traffic, so check back later if you can’t get through directly!
I love this shop, since it’s one of the few places with affordable international shipping where you can get all sorts of amazing Taiwanese, Japanese and Korean sheet masks! Beautius is having a massive Asian Beauty Black Friday Sale 2018, with discounts of up to 80%. Apart from the heavy discounts and free gifts with every order, you can also shop their special Black Friday Bundles, which offer awesome value for money.
Cyber Monday UPDATE: For Cyber Monday 2018, Beautius has added a number of sale items, plus you also get an additional 10% off on order over 100$ with the code “CYBER10”
Beauty Box Korea
The Beauty Box Korea Black Friday Sale 2018 just started (23 Nov), with 10% discount on orders 120$ and more. This sale runs through 25 Nov.
The Amabie Shop has started their Asian Beauty Black Friday Sale 2018, with many enticing savings, such as Super Deals, sheet mask deals, and discounts of 40-90%! The sale lasts until 26 Nov.
Cyber Monday UPDATE: Amabie is launching their Cyber Monday Deals, which ALSO have some pretty neat discounts on Cosrx and Thank You Farmer on offer!
Korean Beauty Black Friday Sales 2018: North American K-Beauty Shops (with international shipping!)
There will be 30% off during the Soko Glam Korean Beauty Black Friday Sales – site-wide, and including sales items. Just remember that Soko Glam has pretty high prices overall, and in the past they have been known to hitch them up right before a sale. So, I’d advise you to check up on the prices for your wish list items now, to make sure you aren’t being ripped off once the sale hits. The Soko Glam Black Friday Sale 2018 starts 21st of November, at 12pm EST and lasts through 27 Nov 10am EST. Use code “SGBF18” at checkout!
The news JUST dropped that Mishibox is having an early Korean Beauty Black Friday Sale 2018, with 30% off sitewide (excluding their subscription boxes and “luxe”, whatever that means) when you use the coupon code “BFNOW30“. The discount is valid through Monday 26 November.
Cyber Monday UPDATE: Mishibox is now offering a Cyber Monday Freebie valued at 50$ on all orders over 100$. Their Black Friday 30% coupon code is also still valid!
Just as expected, Glow Recipe is also having one of their own Korean Beauty Black Friday Sales 2018! The sale lasts from 21 – 26 November and you can expect discounts between 25% to 40%. At this stage, I am not sure if their own brand products are included in the sale, sorry! UPDATE: Alright, the Glow Recipe Black Friday Sale 2018 has started, and they are giving us 25% off all Korean beauty products with the coupon code “BLACKFRIDAY25“, as well as 40% off selected products.
Peach & Lily
Clever, clever Peach & Lily is having a Black Friday Sale 2018 for their K-beauty products, but is, of course, excluding their ever so popular “Peach Slices” in-house brand. Demand, I guess, is too high to justify them ever giving you a discount on the Glass Skin Serum and the Matcha Pudding Moisturiser. Sigh. In any case, the Peach & Lily Black K-Beauty Friday Sale 2018 lasts from Nov 19 through Nov 27, and you will receive 30% sitewide with the aforementioned exclusion. You also receive two free Original Glow sheet masks, apparently!
Not K-beauty as such, but “K-beauty adjacent” thanks to its founder being one of the “og” Korean beauty bloggers from North America! Holy Snails is offering a number of deals for Black Friday 2018, all the way through Cyber Monday. Their “doorbusters” will be limited quantity deals on select products – the doorbuster sales start Friday, November 23 at 12am CST and are as follows:
- Buy a Snowboom Essence, get a free Dwarf Lantern ($9 value)
- Buy a Whale Shark, get a free Snowpop Essence ($10 value)
- 54% off Sheepish Lip Balm ($3.50 value)
- 19% off Bon Ban Sampler Sets ($7 value)
There’s more! You can get an 5$ back via a gift card which – if I understand this correctly – can be instantly applied to your order, when you buy the following items:
- El Dorado Oil Serum
- Snowboom Essence
- Whale Shark
HolySnails is also selling both Holy Snail Water and Sunfish Serum at a reduced price of 25$ each. They will also have a number of holiday gift sets with a 10% off discount compared to regular-priced items. More deals will follow throughout Cyber week, I’ll add them here when I find anything new!
The Ohlolly* Black Friday Sale 2018 has started (begins 21 Nov)! You can get 25% off sitewide with the coupon code “BFCM25” at this beautifully curated K-beauty shop. My purchasing recommendation: Have a look at the gorgeous natural brand Sioris,* which I discussed in my podcast episode about 10 exciting Korean beauty brands to try!
Korean Beauty Black Friday Sales 2018: European K-Beauty Shops
Chobs Organic UK
This amazing, organic, fully vegan and certified halal K-beauty brand really needs more loving! I tried (and loved!) their fantastic Centella Asiatica Serum,* which I reviewed on my blog a while ago, and also have a soft spot for their excellent organic sheet masks – my favourites are the Rose* and Collagen sheet masks!* So, Chobs Organic is having a pretty neat Korean Beauty Black Friday Sale 2018, with up to 50% off most of their products, including my beloved Centella Asiatica Serum, which you can get for 26£ instead of the usual 46£! Their K-beauty Black Friday Sale 2018 lasts from 19 Nov to 26 Nov 2018!
Bits and Bobs of Beauty (UK)
Bits and Bobs of Beauty, a lovely UK boutique shop with a strong focus on Taiwanese and Korean Beauty is hosting a Korean Beauty Black Friday Sale 2018! You get 40% off, as far as I can see it, EVERYTHING with the coupon code “BLACKFRIDAY“. Bits and Bobs of Beauty ships free to the UK with any order over 30£, and international shipping is free with order over 60£.
UPDATE 21 Nov: Honeysu has now started its Korean Beauty Black Friday Sales 2018 week! Expect discounts of up to 40%, e.g. the Blithe Splash Masks (read my German review of these awesome skin treats!) for only 25.00€ instead of 42.00€! Honeysu ships EU wide out of Belgium.
Another UK-based K-beauty shop, with a special focus on natural Korean brands such as Urang, Lagom and Real Barrier. They ship to the US too, but will probably of most interest for anyone based in the UK or the EU (sniff, now two saparate things, how sad!). Anyway, Skinsider has started their Korean Beauty Black Friday Sale 2018, with some neat deals such as 50% off Blossom Jeju sheet masks, 20% off Atoclassic, or 25% off Lagom. Discounts can run up to 60%!
Love My Cosmetic
This German K-beauty shop ships to most EU destinations, I’m not sure if they also ship internationally. Love My Cosmetic are having a Korean Beauty Black Friday Sale 2018 on brands such as Leegeehaam, Klairs, Cosrx and Benton. Discounts can go as high as 50%.
Adding this here for all my German followers: Whamisa Germany is having an awesome 30% off everything sale over the weekend! They have just relaunched their shop and seem to be having difficulties with the site at the moment, but just try back a bit later. No code needed, the reductions are already shown on the site.
Alright, this is the list of Korean Beauty Black Friday Sales 2018 – so far! I wish more shops would announce details of their Black Friday sales early, but for now, this is all I could find. Make sure to bookmark this article and check back in throughout the week: at this point in time, we still have a week to go until Black Friday 2018 sales officially start, so the list will fill up for sure.
