*This article contains affiliate links* It is time to start my annual list of Korean Beauty Black Friday Sales 2020! All the 2020 K-Beauty Black Friday deals, coupon codes and special product discounts that I can find and that are worth our wallet’s attention, updated daily through until Cyber Monday 2020!
NOTE: this list is from 2020 – for the current list of Black Friday sales, please refer to this 2021 article!!!!
In a year full of uncertainties and confusions, it is nice to know that Black Friday 2020 will still go ahead just like every other year. Well…ok, maybe not quite like every other year, at least in the US it will be quite a bit different I imagine, with – hopefully! – no massive crowds running into stores the moment they open. I assume most of the Black Friday Sales 2020 will happen virtually given the current spike in covid cases, and thus finding the really good deals online will potentially be even more important than in previous years.
Especially for us international K-beauty fans, the Korean Beauty Black Friday Sales 2020 are always a big deal – sure, Black Friday was never a Korean tradition, but by now most K-beauty shops happily take part in the annual hype, offering a number of delicious deals. This is still the best time to stock up on Korean beauty faves, and to also start sorting our holiday gift shopping.
As always, I have placed my focus for the Korean Beauty Black Friday Sales 2020 list on shops that are trustworthy and as a general rule ship internationally, since my audience is varied and spread out over a number of different countries (I see you, Malaysian and Singaporean readers! Love to have you here!). I am adding a few North American K-beauty shops that ship internationally, plus a few brands and shops that aren’t K-beauty as such, but still popular amongst lovers of Asian beauty products.
This list will be updated regularly throughout the sales period, including adding Cyber Monday 2020 deals once they become available. In general, the list tends to start out small and then rapidly grows over the next week or so. It is best to bookmark the page and come back regularly, since deals can be announced pretty rapidly once the heated sales period starts.
Korean Beauty Black Friday Sales 2020: Asia-based Beauty Shops
Olive Young Global
The Olive Young Global* Black Friday Deals 2020 are a bit confusing to me, but from how I understand it, they have short bursts of 2-3 day deals until Black Friday. Right now, Olive Young is offering a coupon deal till Nov 29th: save 10% on orders over 119$ with code “BLACKFRIDAY10”, 15% on orders over 149$ with code “BLACKFRIDAY15” and 20% on orders over 200$ with code “BLACKFRIDAY20.” This is on top of all sorts of other discounts and product deals! You have to become a member on the site to use the coupons.
Just like every year, Stylekorean* confuses us all with numerous, constantly changing K-beauty Black Friday deals for 2020. So, at the moment, you can get a number of different brand products for only 9.99$.
They are also running a crazy good deal on derma brand Centellian24 with up to 70% off (and in this case, those actually truly ARE the discounts, some products retail at prices around 8$!!!), and my beloved K-beauty star Isntree is also 50% off. Time to grab that amazing Isntree Green Tea Fresh Toner* for only 9.99$.
IMPORTANT: Guys, I JUST realised that you can also use my affiliate code “KBEAUTY10” for another 10% off at Stylekorean, and yes, it seems to work even on already discounted items! So sorry I didn’t realise sooner!
The Black Friday sale 2020 has started at Stylevana,* with discounts based on order amount – use coupon code “SVBF2020”:
- 15% off on order over 35$
- 18% off on orders over 99$
The Stylevana pre Black Friday Sale 2020 runs through till 29 Nov.
The Yesstyle* Black Friday Sale has started! Aside from the usual sales prices, you can also receive 15% off with coupon code “2020BLACKFRI”. This Asian beauty Black Friday sale runs through till 28 Nov.
The big Wishtrend* Black Friday sale 2020 just started, running through till 28 Nov. You can find pretty great deals, with discounts going up to 46%. Make sure to check out my full blog post about all the deals and best bargains to grab during this special sale! My affiliate code “ULRIKE15” can also give you 15% off as an alternative.
People always forget about kmall24, even though they often run some pretty good deals! For their 2020 Black Friday Sale, kmall24 offers free K-Packet shipping (country restrictions may apply due to covid) and up to 90% discount for a number of brands, among them Cosrx, Missha and Innisfree – most discounts seem to be around 30% from what I can tell. The sale runs till 30 Nov.
Ah, what a shame if you missed the Bemused Korea Black Friday sale 2020! But, hey, their Cyber Monday sale 2020 gives you a second chance at getting some bargains – many products are reduced by up to 50%!
If you don’t mind the nonexistent customer service and the slow shipping (to be fair, that’s literally every overseas store this year…), Testerkorea actually has a couple of good deals during their K-beauty Black Friday sale 2020, among them 40% off for most Innisfree products, 45% off Missha, and 35% off Peripera.
I’m personally not a fan of Jolse due to their absolutely abysmal customer service and the fact that they seem to be unable to properly ship to my home country, but I know many of you love them, so: Jolse is having a sale from 23 to 25 Nov, with plenty of price reductions. Their shipping isn’t free anymore (only with larger orders I think over 50$), and I also noticed that they hiked up their prices compared to last year, but if you carefully compare with other stores you may still find some great deals!
Now that they are shipping worldwide, the Cosrx online shop can actually be a good destination for some deals on our favourite derma brand. During their Black Friday sale 2020 they offer up to 70% discount on many products, plus 30% on sets.
Korean Beauty Black Friday Sales 2020: North American K-Beauty Shops (with international shipping)
You can find some good K-beauty deals at this curated, US-based Korean beauty shop for Black Friday 2020. Ohlolly* offers 20% off sitewide when you use the coupon code “BFCM2020”. This sale ends 30 Nov.
The US-based shop for our favourite hanbang brand Sulwhasoo is offering 20% off on their “Beauty Essentials” and you get a free kit with any purchase over 175$.
Peach & Lily
Oh hey Glass Skin Serum, maybe I can finally grab a deal on your gloriousness this year? But, nope – for some reason, the Peach & Lily Collection is excluded from their Black Friday deals, oh well. Nevertheless, Peach & Lily has an impressive 30% off sitewide (excluding Peach & Lily Collection and gift cards) with coupon code “CYBER” for their Cyber Week 2020. The sale runs until 30 Nov 2020. You do receive 4 Peach Slices masks when you order from the Peach & Lily Collection, so I guess that’s something, but still… I would have liked to see those 30% for the actual brand most people are keen to get during the sale.
If Taiwanese beauty is your jam, then this small T-beauty shop is just what you need! MIIRU Shop has a 30% discount on offer during Black Friday 2020 when you use coupon code “35OFFBF”.
The Soko Glam Black Friday 2020 sale has started, and apparently it only lasts for 24h (Nov 27), so be quick if you are keen on any of their deals. They are offering 30% off sets with coupon code “BRIGHT30” and 40% off on orders over 195$. You also get a free Vita C Serum if you spend more than 125$. Some exclusions apply.
Korean Beauty Black Friday Sales 2020: European K-Beauty Shops
This Spain-based K-beauty shop now runs a number of multi-language shops all over Europe and ships to many destinations. For Black Friday 2020, Miin Cosmetics* are running a “Bright Friday” sale, with 20% off everything except their K-beauty book. The sale runs from 27-30th of November.
A lovely UK-based Korean beauty shop with a number of cruelty-free brands, Skinsider is also offering a number of Black Friday deals for 2020, with discounts of up to 40% on brands such as LAGOM, URANG or Isntree.
Another UK-based Korean beauty shop that stocks a number of great brands, among them Dr. Ceuracle – formerly known as “Leegeeham – and the wonderful indie brand Dr. Althea. Kosame Beauty* offers a 22% discount on all products. This discount is automatically applied, you do not need a special coupon code for the Black Friday 2020 deals. Speaking of coupons: try using my affiliate code “sugarpeachesloves” for a potential additional 10% off on your order!
I haven’t ordered from this curated K-beauty shop based in the UK, but I know many of you are downright obsessed with it! So, for Black Friday 2020, Tonic 15 is offering 25% off on their wide range of brands, among them intriguing niche brands such as Beigic, gesgep or Beaudiani – use coupon code “BLACKFRIDAY”.
Beauty & Seoul
A very popular choice for people in the UK, Beauty & Seoul is running a Black Friday Sale for 2020 with discounts of up to 40% on everything.
I personally haven’t ordered from this Korean beauty shop based in the Netherlands, but apparently it’s very popular! They do stock a range of great brands such as Jumiso, Barulab and Troiareuke, so I definitely can see why they are a good choice for EU-based people. Little Wonderland is having a Black Friday sale, though I do not know the details yet and will add them here once I know more. Their sale starts at 27 Nov!
This Asian beauty store is also based in the Netherlands and offers intriguing brands such as By Ecom, my beloved K-beauty darling Isntree and The Vegan Glow. The Ichigo sale starts 25 Nov and runs until 27 Nov and features discounts on selected items of up to 60%, plus 3+1 sheet mask deals.
Dot Dot Skin
And to complete the trio of Netherlands-based Korean beauty shops, Dot Dot Skin also offers a couple of deals, with up to 40% discounts shopwide. Among the brands on sale are everyone’s favourite Purito, current trendsetter Keep Cool, Pyunkang Yul and Benton.
Miss and Missy
Germany-based Korean beauty shop Miss and Missy is an old friend of mine, and so I’m happy to add their 20% off Black Friday deal here – they are also offering free shipping within Germany! Use code “Friday20”.
A small German shop with a good selection of brands, Juui* has a number of K-beauty brands on offer, among them indie brand Aqulabo, Real Barrier and E Nature. Their Black Friday Sale 2020 runs through till 30 Nov.
This is a German K-beauty shop which does ship to a few other EU countries as well! Lovemycosmetic started a pre Black Friday sale 2020 with up to 30% discount on selected items.
Korean Beauty Black Friday Sales 2020: K-Beauty Adjacent Shops and Brands
Popular among many Asian beauty lovers, I’m including the Stratia Skin Black Friday/Cyber Week sale 2020 here! Stratia offers a 20% discount off sitewide, which has already been applied automatically, so there is no code needed. You can get free US shipping with any order 35$+ and free international shipping for order 150$ and over. The sale has started already and will run through till 22 Nov.
Just like they did last year, DECIEM is basically giving us a full month to shop for deals, in order to de-stress people from having to cram all their deal hunting into just a few days – neat! So, you can snatch a sitewide discount of 23% until the end of November for all DECIEM products. Expect long wait times for your oder, from what I have heard from people who shopped last year – though this probably applies to most of the shops mentioned here given the flight schedule situation this year.
Geek & Gorgeous
You all know how much I love this Hungarian indie brand that rivals The Ordinary when it comes to affordable, well-formulated skincare. And guess what, Geek & Gorgeous* just kicked off their first ever Black Friday Sale 2020, with a 15% discount on their already pretty affordable products, sitewide! Make sure to grab that amazing B-Bomb 10% Niacinamide Serum*, the incredible Calm Down PHA+BHA Peeling* and the bestest Cleanser you can find for a ridiculously low 7.48€, Jelly Joker!*
When this list goes online, we will still be 9 days away from the actual Black Friday 2020, so it is still somewhat small. Remember to check back again later, especially once the weekend is over, because this is usually when more shops start announcing their sales details for 2020. I will also write a separate blog post for the annual Wishtrend Black Friday sale 2020, as soon as I have the information for that sale.
If you are new here and love K-beauty as much as I do: 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 (it’s on hold at the moment, but I am planning new episodes in the near future), and we should definitely connect on Instagram!
