Guyyyyyys, are you ready for Black Friday 2019?! Here it is: the highly-anticipated, continuously updated list of Korean Beauty Black Friday Sales 2019!
This is an OUTDATED blog post – please refer to my list of K-beauty sales for 2020!!!
I know many of you have already been looking for my Korean beauty Black Friday Sales 2019 list, since I got a spike in clicks for the (outdated…) 2018 version. Truthfully, if it was in my power to start my list of K-beauty Black Friday deals a few days earlier I’d be so happy, but most shops are being especially secretive this year. I think it has to do with many of them taking part in this year’s Singles’ Day Sales for the first time and only barely getting out of that craziness.
Also, it’s quite normal for shops to hope we consumers won’t wait until the best deals come up to finally shop at the site – of course, the later the deals are announced, the more our patience may run out and we might just end up buying at full price after all. But, honestly, I think we are all way too deal-savvy by now to not be able to wait a few days more until we can get the most out of our Asian beauty Black Friday Sales 2019, right?
If you are reading this pretty early on after publication, the list may still look unnervingly small for something that claims to be “ultimate.” This, again, is because at the time of its first publication, I usually don’t have info on all the Black Friday 2019 Asian beauty deals and sales on skincare yet. Fear not, since this list will from now on be updated regularly, usually at least daily, as soon as I get news of more discounts.
Just like the years before, I am focusing particularly on K-beauty shops that ship internationally, and will also include European shops that sell Asian beauty, since a large chunk of my audience is global/based here in the EU. However, I also include larger US-based shops such as Soko Glam, Ohlolly or Beautytap. I am also considering adding any good deals from “K-beauty adjacent” shops and brands (e.g. Deciem or Stratia) if anything great catches my eye. Ok, let’s get started with the ultimate list of Korean beauty Black Friday Sales 2019!
This is an OUTDATED blog post – please refer to my list of K-beauty sales for 2020!!!
Korean Beauty Black Friday Sales 2019: Asia-based Beauty Shops
UPDATED: Even though this Asian beauty store tends to jack up its prices right before a sale, they still often have the best deals on popular brands, especially since the free worldwide shipping threshold ist very low (35$/€ respectively). For the Yesstyle Cyber Monday Sale 2019*, which start 02 Dec, you can use the coupon code “2019CYBER” to receive an extra 15% off on top of any other reductions.
The Bemused Korea Black Friday Sale 2019 runs from Nov 15 till Dec 2 and offers some pretty neat deals throughout. They currently offer 50% off cleansers, which means you can get the excellent ONEOSEVEN Low Ph Chaga Cleanser for only 8.50$!
There is a Black Friday special at Althea Korea*, with 30% off their in-house brands Althea Collection and A’Bloom. This sale runs from Nov 29 through to Dec 02.
Just like last year, Stylekorean* is having a whole host of Black Friday Korean beauty sales 2019! They are kicking off with 10% off for all orders under 100$ with coupon code “2019BLACK10” and 15% off if you spend more than 100$ with coupon code “2019BLACK15”. There will also be daily deals on specific products and brand deals with up to 60% off – at the moment (30 Nov), you can get Nacific and Pyunkang Yul products for 9.99$ each – check out the cult favourite Pyunkang Yul Essence Toner* or the beautiful Nacific Real Floral Toner Cherry Blossoms* with real cherry blossom petals, both for only 9.99$!
They are also running daily “Time Deals” and “Mega Deals” with discounts of up to 60%, though bear in mind that they hiked up the prices right before the sale, as most K-beauty shops are known to do. Nevertheless, some of these deals are very good indeed! My current fave (runs through 1 Dec): the very positively reviewed Missha Time Revolution Artemisia Ampoule* is only 17.99$, and the super cute Laneige Holiday Collection Mini Sleeping Mask set* only 14.99$ (a great stocking filler for skincare lovers)!
You can also find many gorgeous, cute holiday gift sets at reduced prices at Stylekorean! My current favourite is the adorable Laneige Cream Skin Refiner Mini Set* with 5 cute minis of this Laneige fan favourite for only 24.20$!
This often overlooked shop for Korean products is running the kmall24 2019 Korea Sale Festa for Black Friday, with 50% off shipping (which is already quite reasonable anyway) and 24% discount on all products with the coupon code “DOUBLEBENEFITS”.
The Wishtrend Black Friday Sale has started – it will run through to Dec 1, but usually there is a Cyber Monday sale straight after that, so you should have a few more days extra next week! Wishtrend dropped two new beauty tools, a rose quartz roller* and – get this! – an LED Therapy Mask*, which is 40% off during the sale. You can also grab amazing deals with up to 50% discounts for all Wish Company brands such as Klairs*, By Wishtrend* and I’m from*, and receive freebies galore if you spend more than 200$. AND: COSRX* products are off by 40% – my beloved Cosrx One Step Original Clear Pad* is only 12$, the Cosrx Low Ph Good Morning Cleanser* only 7.20$! There is also the benefit of free expedited shipping if you spend more than 120$!
UPDATE: Cyber Monday has started at Wishtrend* and you can still find heaps of great discounts, plus if you spend 120$ or more you get an extra 25% off with the code “CYBERMONDAY”.Make sure to check out my full blog article about the Wishtrend Black Friday sale which explains all the deals and gives you some product recommendations if you’re overwhelmed by the offers!
There is a Black Friday K-beauty sale 2019 at Beautynetkorea with a number of discounted products from popular brands such as Eye’n’lip or It’s Skin with up to 50% off.
I’ve never ordered from this Korea-based shop, but I know many people from the community like them for their deals. For Black Friday, Cosmetic Love is running a sale on select items and brands. You also get an extra 10% discount with the code “BLACKFRIDAY2019” – the sale runs until Dec 1.
I’m usually not a fan of Jolse since I’ve had numerous delivery issues with them, but I have to say, their Thanksgiving Sale 2019 is really, really tempting! You can find bargains galore, with prices reduced up to 70% for great brands such as Isntree (make sure to grab the amazing Isntree Green Tea Fresh Toner!), plus a chance to win up to 1,000$ worth of free credit from Jolse.
Since the Cosrx shop now offers worldwide shipping, I’ll add them here to the list. They are taking part in the K-beauty Black Friday Sales 2019 for what I believe is the first time, offering 50% off select items in time-sensitive offers that change every day. It’s best to check the site every day to see if your personal favourites are on sale if you want to order from them! Hurry, sale ends today, Sunday 29 Nov.
Korean Beauty Black Friday Sales 2019: North American K-Beauty Shops (with international shipping)
This lovely curated K-beauty shop has just started their Ohlolly Black Friday Sale 2019!* Use the code “BFCM2019” for 25% off sitewide. US-based customers also receive free US shipping on order over 50$.
The official Black Friday sale 2019 HAS started at Soko Glam, with reductions of up to 60%, plus another 30% off when you use the code “BLACKFRIDAY19”.
I have never ordered from this US-based shop, but have heard good things about them and they do offer reasonable rates for shipping internationally (plus great rates for you US peeps). Masksheets has started their (pre?) Black Friday Sales with a number of good discounts on select items. These are all flash deals, so they may change and be sold out pretty quickly!
The Black Friday Sale 2019 at Beautytap* has JUST started and runs through to Dec 1. Savings are varied across brands and products and can be as high as 50%.
Peach & Lily
Ever since they brought out their own skincare brand, Peach & Lily have been on my radar, even though their shipping costs to Germany are somewhat outrageous. In any case, this curated K-beauty shop offers 30% off sitewite with the code “PEACH2019” – sadly, this excludes the Peach & Lily collection, but you do get a gift when you purchase from their in-house brand.
Korean Beauty Black Friday Sales 2019: European K-Beauty Shops
This Germany-based Korean beauty shop has started their K-Beauty Black Friday Sale 2019! Lovemycosmetic offers 25% off all non-sale items with the code “Black25”. They ship EU-wide from what I know!
This lovely, UK-based curated K-beauty shop is also running a sale! The Skinsider Black Friday Sale 2019 offers 25% off all purchases with the coupon code “BF25”!
Beauty and Seoul
This British K-beauty store has a nice selection of curated brands and was founded by a K-beauty blogger who knows her stuff. I don’t know all the details yet, but Beauty and Seoul have just announced that they are having a Black Friday Sale 2019 with discounts of up to 50% on all items and a free Hanskin sheet mask for orders over 50£.
This is another UK-based, curated Korean beauty shop that I don’t know too much about, but they seem to have a nice little collection of Korean indie brands such as Sioris and Beaudiani on offer. Tonic15 offers 25% off sitewide with the code “BLACKFRIDAY”.
Founded by K-beauty influencer Sokobeauty, Dotdot Skin is still a relatively new Korean beauty shop based in the Netherlands. They are taking part in the K-beauty Black Friday Sales 2019 with discounts of up to 40% and a free gift if you spend more than 100€.
A Germany-based shop I actually don’t know that well (which doesn’t happen often), but I saw on Instagram that they are running a Black Friday Sale this year. Komawo has curated a few interesting Korean brands such as Hyggee and Brucke, though they only ship to Germany and Austria. During their Black Friday K-beauty sale 2019, all products are off 30% when you use the code “BF30”.
This is cute little Germany-based Korean beauty shop has a nice selection of curated brands, particularly the fantastic natural brand The Pure Lotus! Juui* is offering a Black Friday Sale with discounts of up to 50%! For instance, you can get the Pyungkang Yul Moisture Serum* for only 17.45€!
Korean Beauty Black Friday Sales 2019: K-Beauty Adjacent Shops and Brands
This US-based indie brand was founded by one of the “OG” K-beauty influencers and is a big hit in the Asian beauty community. Holy Snails just announced that they are having a Black Friday Sale over the holiday weekend (I’m guessing starting on Black Friday…?). There will be daily “doorbusters”, as well as 10% off for all non-sale items and an extra 5$ gift card for every 50$ you spend. You can also earn double reward points, apparently.
Since this is basically a US-based brand by now, I don’t really consider them “Korean beauty” as such, especially now that the shop exclusively sells their in-house brands (Glow Recipe and Sweet Chef) and has stopped selling other K-beauty. In any case, for Black Friday Glow Recipe will give you a free, apparently full-sized Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser when you spend over 10$ on Glow Recipe products and even a free Watermelon Sleeping Mask when you spend 80$+! I do not, however, know if you basically ALSO get the cleanser on top of the mask, or if it’s either/or. This deal runs on Nov 28 + 29. On Dec 1 + 2, you can get 20% off sitewide with the coupon code “GLOWGANG20”, with the exclusion of skincare kits though.
So there we are – for now – with the Korean Beauty Black Friday Sales 2019 and the upcoming Cyber Monday 2019 deals. As stated above, I will add any new sale details from other Korean beauty and wider Asian beauty shops I can find, and of course I’m always grateful for you guys to let me know about any sales I might have missed. And just an fyi: I will not add Missha US here, because during previous Black Friday sales there have been severe security problems. Even if they by now have fixed that, they never acknowledged the security breach and never formerly apologised for it, which makes them an untrustworthy site in my eyes.
By the time this blog list goes online, we still have a good 10 days to go until Black Friday 2019, so don’t be disappointed if your favourite K-beauty shop isn’t on here yet. Make sure to bookmark this list to refer back to it in a few days, I’m really doing my best to add all the info I can find as we are getting near the big date!
And, if you are new here and love K-beauty: welcome, and please do check out my English K-beauty and indie beauty reviews. I also produce and host a podcast all about Asian beauty, the only one out there at the moment with that focus (rip The Snailcast, sniff). Also, we should definitely connect on Instagram!
