It’s here, it’s here – the Wishtrend Black Friday Sale 2017 starts tomorrow (or today – depending on where you live!), 20th of November, and it’s going to be preeeeetty big. Learn all about what deals you can expect, what Wishtrend products you should definitely grab, and which Wishtrend items are on my own wish list for the sale!
To say that I am excited about the Wishtrend Black Friday Sale 2017 is probably an understatement! Of all the K-Beauty Black Friday Sales for 2017 (which, incidentally, you can find a constantly updated list of on this very blog!), the Wishtrend sale is probably the most highly anticipated one, due to the fact that it usually offers some stellar deals and all sorts of cool extra goodies. Last year I talked basically all my friends and quite a number of family members into buying a year’s worth of K-Beauty products during the Wishtrend Black Friday Sale, and I myself also stocked up on some favourites.
This year, there are some new, exciting deals waiting for us Korean beauty addicts! I’ll be going through everything I know about confirmed and possible reductions during the Wishtrend Black Friday Sale 2017, as well as give you some product recommendations based on my personal Wishtrend favourites. Most of these have been previously reviewed on my blog, so I’ll make sure to link to those review posts. Some of them may be in German, however, so hopefully google translate can help you decipher the info you need if you are one of my international readers.
Wishtrend Black Friday Sale 2017: When, where, and how much can you save?
Alright, let’s just go through all the details for the Wishtrend Black Friday Sale 2017 step by step:
The Wishtrend Black Friday Sale 2017 starts Monday, 20 November! It lasts until Sunday 26 November, or until stocks lasts, obviously. My experience with last year’s sale is that heavily reduced, themed beauty boxes with Wishtrend faves usually sell out fast, but smaller sets and single products are rarely out of stock until the last day or so.
In case you don’t know about Wishtrend yet, it is a Korean online shop that offers curated skincare from predominantly minimalist, natural brands. They were one of the first shops to sell the entire Cosrx range, for instance! The company Wishtrend is also behind one of my favourite brands, Klairs, as well as the amazing “By Wishtrend” skincare line. Wishtrend ships worldwide, usually for a flat rate of 10$, and offers free worldwide shipping for orders over 69$.
3.) How much can you save?
You can save up to 80% on a variety of products during the Wishtrend Black Friday Sale 2017! There will also be a couple of “buy 1 get 1 free” deals for popular products such as the By Wishtrend Mandelic Acid Skin Prep Water.
I am not sure yet about the exact number of different “Wish, Try, Love” beauty boxes that will be on offer, but one box that will definitely be on sale, with a staggeringly awesome reduction of 35%, is the popular Teen Skincare Essential Box, which you will be able to get for
53,84$ 68,52$ (sorry, I was given the wrong price initially!) instead of 97,89$. The Teen Skincare Essential Box contains the following products:
- 1x Skin & Lab Dr. Vita Clinic Gently Vita Exfoliator
- 1x Klairs Supple Preparation All-Over Lotion
- 1x Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream (which is amazing!)
- 1x Klairs Midnight Blue Sun Lotion SPF40/PA++
- 1x Klairs Be Clean Natural Soap – Face
Another Wish, Try, Love skincare box on sale is the Oily Acne Prone Skin Box, which you can snatch up for only 54,85$ instead of 109,69$ – that’s a reduction of 50%! The Oily Acne Prone Skin Daily Essentials Box contains:
- 1x I’m From Volcanic Mask
- 1x Cosrx Centella Water Alcohol-Free Toner
- 1x Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Serum
- 1x I’m from Vitamin Tree Water Gel (this one is sooooo good!!!!)
- 1x Klairs Gentle Black Sugar Charcoal Soap
Extra Coupon Codes for additional (!) goodies or discounts:
But of course, price reductions and great beauty boxes aren’t the only benefits of the Wishtrend Black Friday Sale 2017! There are also a number of coupon codes you can use for an extra discount when you proceed to check out, or for special gifts:
- For purchases over 139$ you can get +3% additional discount with code “2017bf13”
- For purchases over 169$ you can get +5% additional discount with code “2017bf169”
- For purchases over 219$ you can get +8% additional discount with code “2017bf219”
- For purchases over 99$: 2x free boxes of By Wishtrend Multi Function Cotton Pads with code “bfgift99”
- For purchases over $169: 2x free boxes of By Wishtrend Multi Function Cotton Pads PLUS 5x free Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner minis with code “bfgift169”
I do believe that sadly you will probably only be able to use one of those codes for one order, so make sure to pick the one that is the most beneficial for you! UPDATE: Huzzah, I was mistaken! According to Wishtrend, you will actually be allowed to stack your coupon codes! Please let me know in the comments if this really worked so that I have confirmation!
Furthermore, there is also a discount on shipping fees: The usual free standard shipping minimum order amount of 69$ will be reduced to 59$, and 139$ instead of 159$ for expedited shipping (so if you buy big, you can get your order faster, with no additional cost, yay!).
Wishtrend Black Friday Sale 2017: What to Get
Not sure what to buy during the Wishtrend Black Friday Sale 2017? Let me help you out! Here are some of my absolute favourite products from Wishtrend:
1. Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner
The Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner is, hands down, my favourite Korean skincare toner out there! It is thick and nourishing, yet feels wonderfully refreshing and lightweight. My oily skin loves this because it offers moisture without causing any breakouts, and I also know many dry-skinned girls who adore this toner. I reviewed the Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner in German when I discussed the 7 Skin Method. The Klairs toner usually costs 21,99$, but you can get it for 14,73$ during the Wishtrend Black Friday Sale 2017 (33% reduction).
2. Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin C Drop
I bought this Vitamin C serum during last year’s Black Friday sale as part of a skincare beauty box and was kind of sceptical if I would like it. Turns out – it’s amazing! This is the perfect vitamin C serum for “vitamin C virgins”, whose skin might react badly to higher dosages. The Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin C Drop contains 5% of vitamin C. It helps to brighten up your complexion as well as smooth out fine lines and uneven pigmentation. I reviewed the Vitamin C Drop in German a while ago. If you can, consider also snatching up the companion product to this serum, the Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask, which I reviewed in English here. The Freshly Juiced Vitamin C Drop serum usually costs 23$, but you can get it for 30% less at 14,95$ during the sale!
3. Klairs Midnight Blue Youth Activating Drop
This deep blue, watery serum is something quite special, since it contains a number of anti ageing peptides that can help boost collagen production and thus actively fight wrinkles. I reviewed this anti ageing serum in German on this blog, and even though I wasn’t 100% sure if it had an effect on my wrinkles, I did like the way it plumped up my skin and made it look noticeably fresher and brighter. The Klairs Midnight Blue Youth Activating Drop has a regular price of 30$, which is quite steep. So you will be pleased to hear that this will retail at only 18$ during the Wishtrend Black Friday Sale 2017 – that’s a 40% price reduction!
4. By Wishtrend Mandelic Acid 5% Skin Prep Water
The By Wishtrend Mandelic Acid Skin Prep Water is my absolute favourite exfoliating toner at the moment! I have raved so much about this super gentle, baby-soft skin producing toner in my English product review, I don’t really know what else to tell you (except how much I love this!!!). If you suffer from rough skin texture, enlarged pores and/or blackheads and excess sebum, you likely will adore this one as much as I do. I still use this toner pretty much every night, and my skin has never looked better. The By Wishtrend Mandelic Acid 5% Skin Prep Water will be on offer as a “buy 1 get one free” product, so you can get 2 for 22$!
5. By Wishtrend Green Tea & Enzyme Powder Wash
The latest addition to the By Wishtrend product family, this enzyme powder wash is great as a second step cleanser for oily and oily combination skin. I reviewed the Green Tea & Enzyme Powder Wash in English a few weeks ago and it is still a regular addition to my PM skincare routine. My skin always feels extra soft and smooth whenever I use this, and it doesn’t feel aggressive at all, despite baking soda being one of its scrubbing agents. I am not sure if the By Wishtrend Green Tea & Enzyme Powder Wash will be sold at a reduced price, but if it is – do get yourself a bottle (or two) of this marvellous stuff! UPDATE: Yay, the By Wishtrend Powder Wash is indeed reduced by 20%, so you can buy it for 17,60$ instead of the usual 22$!
6. I’m from Honey Mask
Is there any Korean skincare lover out there who doesn’t have a pot of this liquid gold on their bathroom shelf? This gorgeous, nourishing wash-off mask contains 38,7% Jirisan honey, a medicinal honey priced for its antibacterial, skin-soothing properties that is collected at a mountain region in South Korea. This mask makes my skin feel velvety smooth and plump, it’s simply miraculous! Whenever I need an extra treat for my skin, I leave this mask on for at least an hour – it is so nourishing and gentle that you can leave it on for literally hours without it drying down. The only thing I should warn you about: do NOT try to eat this, even though it does look and smell exactly like fresh honey. Trust me… ahem. The I’m from Honey Mask usually retails at 37,90$, but you can get this for only 20,85$ at the Wishtrend Black Friday Sale 2017 (45% off!).
7. I’m From Vitamin Tree Water-Gel
Funnily enough, I only got to know this transparent, moisturising gel because it was part of a skincare trio I bought during last year’s Black Friday sale. Buying the three products together turned out to be cheaper than buying the two I initially wanted separately. So, basically I knew nothing about the I’m From Vitamin Tree Water Gel and tried it completely blind. What a happy coincidence, however, because this is probably one of the most wonderful moisturisers for my oily combination skin I have ever tried! I reviewed the Vitamin Tree Water Gel in German on my blog, so do have a look there for additional images of its beautiful texture. I am not sure this will be sold at a reduced price, but I keep my fingers crossed! The Vitamin Tree Water-Gel usually costs 28$, but during the Black Friday Sale you can grab it for only 16,80$!
Wishtrend Black Friday Sale 2017: What’s on my wish list?
Ok, so I have to be honest with you: the current state of my bank account may not allow me to splurge during the Wishtrend Black Friday Sale 2017 as much as I would like, even though it pains me to even write this! However, I do have a small wish list in addition to the products named above. These are Wishtrend products I have tried as smaller samples before, or have heard good things about. I am super keen to finally own the full product sizes:
I received 3 small samples of this awesome cream with a Wishtrend purchase a while ago, and trust me – I used up every last drop of them! This cream is fantastically versatile and can be used either as a spot treatment for areas with acne or pimples, mixed with the Might Blue Youth Activating Drop as a moisturiser, or as a sleeping cream overnight. It is the perfect “SOS treatment” when your skin has gone crazy for some reason: it is soothing, calming and healing. Wishtrend offers a “2 for 1” deal for the Mightnight Blue Calming Cream for the first 300 buyers in ADDITION to a 50% price reduction – so you can get 2 jars for only 24,50$!
Another Klairs product I have previously tried as a small sample. The strange light blue colour at first confused me, but it basically disappears when you apply it to the skin. What I loved so much about this sunscreen is the fact that it felt very moisturising and yet not too greasy, just really comfortable. At 16$ instead of the usual 20$, I may just be tempted to grab a tub!
I love the Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin C Drop, I really do, but… I am kind of ready for something stronger! So many people rave about the By Wishtrend Vitamin C serum that I am super keen to try it out. It’s supposed to help reduce dull skin tones and help fight sun damage, which I sadly do have thanks to 7 years close to the Australian ozone hole and being terribly lazy with my daily sunscreen back then. This vitamin C serum only costs 16,49$ instead of 29,99$ during the sale!
Ok, this one is probably a bit too indulgent given the state of my finances, but hey, a girl can dream, right? The main reason why this Body Scrub is on my wish list is really just because everyone raves about how good this smells! And… I just NEED to know – what DOES this smell like?! Also, I love a good body body scrub, it’s just such a wonderful pampering treat! And – it’s 50% off, so only 11,95$ instead of 23,90$. Tempting!
UPDATE: The Wishtrend servers caved under the pressure last night,
but the site is back up now,the site is still struggling to stay stable, but everything except a few Cosrx products is still in stock, so do head over there again maybe in a few hours. I’m sure Wishtrend is working hard to stabilise the site!
2nd UPDATE: Guys, the website is stable again! Your Black Friday shopping experience should now go ahead undisturbed! Happy bargain hunting!
So…what will YOU buy during the Wishtrend Black Friday Sale 2017? Let me know – maybe you’ll inspire me for my wish list!
