This article contains affiliate links* The biggest K-beauty sale of the year just started, and I am at the ready to tell you all about the deals, discounts, new products releases and special sets awaiting you during the Wishtrend Black Friday Sale 2019!
Guys, I’m a day late to the party and SO sorry about that! As you may have heard from my dramatic posts on Instagram, I’ve had a Macbook emergency that prevented me from blogging for two long, excruciating days! But, I am back today and doing my very best to catch you all up on the latest K-beauty sales news, plus of course get you all sorted for what is arguably the best and biggest sale of the year for us Asian beauty lovers: the Wishtrend* Black Friday Sale 2019. This massive sale event promises a whole list of deals, heavy discounts on all your favourites from the Wish Company (which happen to be the manufacturers of Klairs, By Wishtrend and I’m from!), plus extra discounts depending on how large your haul will turn out to be. Add to that the promise of potentially receiving free expedited shipping and we’re ready for some serious hauling!
Since the Wishtrend Black Friday Sale 2019 can be a bit overwhelming in terms of what’s on offer, and since I have tried out or know about quite a number of the products, I will also give you a few product recommendations to get you sorted. Particularly if you are new to Klairs, By Wishtrend and I’m from, you may need some pointers as to what the best products are, and for how much cheaper you can snatch them up during the sale.
So, let’s get started with a breakdown of the deals first, and then I’ll give you my product recommendations for the Wishtrend Black Friday Sale 2019!
Wishtrend Black Friday Sale 2019: List of all Deals, Benefits and Timeline of Offers
So, ok, I’ll be honest: the Wishtrend Black Friday Sale 2019 is a little bit less, um, structured, it feels, compared to previous years. For instance, I’m not a fan of daily deals, since they can easily get confusing and overwhelming. I am also slightly confused by Wishtrend’s decision to launch two new products for the sale, which I think will only add to the overwhelm and confusion of their customers in regards to what to buy and whether or not it is worth it.
That being said, there are still some amazing deals to be grabbed, and I will do my best to help you wade through the slightly disjointed look of the offer pages…
How long does the Wishtrend Black Friday Sale 2019 last?
The Wishtrend Black Friday Sale 2019 runs through till Sunday the 1st of December 2019! However, straight after that they always start their Wishtrend Cyber Monday Sale, which usually has similar offers and benefits to the Black Friday Sale, so don’t feel like you are missing out if you don’t catch the first wave of sales. I do have to warn you though that the most popular items are mostly sold out by that point. If you are after Cosrx bestseller in particular, you should consider buying sooner rather than later!
General Benefits during the Wishtrend Black Friday Sale 2019
The Wishtrend Black Friday Sale 2019 offers up to 50% discounts on pretty much all products and skincare sets site-wide. The main brands that Wishtrend sells are: Klairs, I’m from, By Wishtrend and Cosrx. The brand discounts for these four are as follows:
- Klairs products are generally 30% off, with the exception of the Klairs Soft Airy UV Essence*, which is 20% off, and the 2 Step Eye Care Set*, which is 40% off!
- I’m from products are mostly 40% off, with a few exceptions such as the awesome Skin Detox Package* with all products from the I’m from Mugwort line for only 80.30$ instead of the usual 146$!
- By Wishtrend products are generally 30% off, though some of the brand sets such as the fantastic Clear Skin Package* for only 61.05$ instead of 111$ are 40-45% off!
- Cosrx products are 40% off, though sadly a few of the most popular products such as the Snail Mucin Essence are already sold out. Do check out the currently running Yesstyle Black Friday Sale and use the code “BLACKFRI15” to receive 15% all products to get some pretty comparable deals on Cosrx products* that may be sold out at Wishtrend already!

Wishtrend Black Friday Sale 2019: New Product Launches and Special Black Friday Sets
And if all of that wasn’t already enough to make your mouth water with excitement, Wishtrend has also released two new products – the first ever beauty tools from the Wish Company! The first one is a pretty rose quartz face roller with rose gold hardware, the By Wishtrend Rose Quartz Beauty Roller*, which retails for 23$ and is currently on sale for 20.70$. The second, to me far more exciting product launch is the ECLAIR LED Therapy Mask,* which retails at 170$ and is currently on sale for only 102$! I’m so intrigued by what LED light therapy can do for the skin, and this mask seems to be pretty well-build and fairly priced compared to competitor brands such as LG.
In order to further promote the new rose quartz face roller, Wishtrend has also brought out two Black Friday exclusive brand sets, which both include the roller. The BF Klairs Special Package* contains the four newly released Klairs Fundamental products, the Fundamental Ampule Mist, the Fundamental Watery Oil Drop, the Fundamental Awakening Eye Gel, the Fundamental Nourishing Eye Butter, and of course the Rose Quartz Beauty Roller. This package retails at 83.20$ instead of 128.00$.
The BF I’m from Special Package* contains four super popular I’m from products: the (Gothamista approved!) Rice Toner, the Ginseng Serum, the Ginseng Eye Cream and the Mugwort Mask, plus, naturally, the beauty roller. This package retails at 90.60$ instead of 151.00$.
If you spend 200$ or more, you also automatically take part in a giveaway for the new ECLAIR LED Therapy Mask* – 10 winners will be randomly chosen to receive the mask with their orders!
Wishtrend Black Friday Sale 2019: My Top 10 Picks!
I’ll be honest, many of my top picks from Wishtrend are still the same as last year, simply because they are that good! Klairs and By Wishtrend in particular remain some of my favourite brands from Korea, and I truly cannot live without many of their forever faves. However, this year there are also a few new product launches on my wish list, though I’m not sure I can afford any of them given my current laptop problems. But, I happily share my inner wish list with you guys to hopefully inspire you for your own purchase choices!
1. Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask
It is impossible for me to survive the winter without this super hydrating, extra plumping sleeping mask. The Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E mask contains 5% niacinamide, which brightens and evens out dull, rough skin textures, plus nourishing ceramides and water-grabbing hyaluronic acid. The texture of this overnight mask is something extra special, very bouncy and lightweight, so it is particularly suitable for oily or mixed skin types. Make sure to read my English product review for more information on this mask! You can get the Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask* during the Wishtrend Black Friday Sale 2019 for only 18.90$ instead of 27.00$, so 40% off!
2. Klairs Supple Preparation Unscented Toner
This is still one of my favourite, no-nonsense hydrating K-beauty toners for dry, dehydrated and sensitive skin types! I’m not using it at the moment, but loved the Klairs Supple Preparation Unscented Toner especially during the humid summer months, when it felt extra refreshing and replenishing thanks to its formula rich in humectants such as hyaluronic acid and beta glucan. This also contains centella asiatica and brightening licorice root extract. Again, there is a full English review on the blog for you to learn more! You can buy the Klairs Supple Preparation Unscented Toner* for only 15.40$ instead of 22.00$ at the moment, which means a discount of 30%.
3. Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream
I finished my large 60ml tube of this absolute must-have K-beauty product a few days ago, so I am eager to stock up. As someone who continuously tries out new things and can get bored quickly, there are few products that I have been as loyal to as the Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream. It is such a fabulous, multi-purpose product that works especially well for me as an overnight mask whenever my skin is having a freakout. This non-greasy cream contains guaiazulene won from German Blue Chamomile, which soothes skin and combats redness and inflammation. Azulene was one of the most popular ingredients in K-beauty this year, and Klairs really were so ahead of that trend with their Midnight Blue skincare range, which has been around for a few years now. You can use the Midnight Blue Calming Cream as an all-over sleeping pack, a spot treatment, a mask treatment, and some people have even replaced their moisturiser with it. The Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream* is currently on sale for only 17.15$ for the 30ml jar instead of 24.50$, or 21.70$ instead of 31.00$ for the (more hygienic) 60ml tube – that is a discount of 30%.
4. By Wishtrend Mandelic Acid 5% Skin Prep Water
I’ve been experimenting with the The Ordinary 10% Mandelic Acid lately, but I have to say, even though it’s been quite a fun experience working with a higher percentage Mandelic Acid, I really, truly miss my By Wishtrend Skin Prep Water! For some reason, even though it “only” contains 5% of the oil-soluble, extra-gentle AHA, this alcohol- and fragrance-free liquid acid toner just seems more effective at making my skin look extra glowy and smooth. I wrote a long blog review of the Skin Prep Water a while ago, and my love for it remains unchanged. I’m so tempted to stock up and buy what would be my third bottle by now. You can get the By Wishtrend Mandelic Acid 5% Skin Prep Water* on sale for only 15.40$ instead of 22.00$, so 30% off the regular price.
5. By Wishtrend Polyphenols in Propolis 15% Ampoule
This is a new product for me, which – I am excited to say – is already on its way to me courtesy of another Korean beauty shop. So, expect a blog review of this at some stage! The By Wishtrend Polyphenols in Propolis 15% Ampoule is a super potent ampoule treatment that is extra rich in antioxidants, which help combat the signs of premature ageing caused by both pollution (so-called “polluaging”) and sun damage. It also contains propolis, which happens to be one of my all time favourite skincare ingredients, especially great for anyone with acne-prone skin due to its anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties. The By Wishtrend Polyphenols in Propolis 15% Ampoule* is currently available for only 22.40$ instead of 32.00$, a 30% discount.
6. By Wishtrend Acid-Duo 2% Mild Gel Cleanser
Another product that is still relatively new, and I’m so drawn to it! This gel cleanser is targeted at oilier skin types and combines two types of exfoliating acids, 1% LHA and 1% PHA, both known to be super mild and effective at sloughing off dead skin cells and helping with rough skin texture issues. The cleanser also uses mild cleansing agents and is free from the more aggravating sodium laureth sulfate, so it should work great for sensitive skin types who suffer from oiliness and breakouts. Also…the bottle is pink! If you are curious about the By Wishtrend Acid-Duo 2% Mild Gel Cleanser*, you can get it with a current 15% off, so for only 16.15$ instead of 19.00$.
7. I’m from Rice Toner
Oh gosh, this one I’m barely able to resist! The I’m from Rice Toner is one of those products that can easily be overlooked due to the minimalist packaging and deceptively simple formulation. Ever since our beloved skincare goddess René, aka Gothamista, has started mentioning it as one of her all time favourite hydrating toners, it’s become a sleeper hit with many a skincare lover. Enriched with 77.78% rice extract, this toner smoothes and plumps the skin, plus it offers brightening benefits thanks to the rice extract in combination with niacinamide and Japanese elm bark extract. You can purchase the I’m from Rice Toner* for only 19.60$ instead of 28.00$, a 30% discount.
8. I’m from Honey Mask
I didn’t repurchase this wash off mask during last year’s Black Friday and then sorely missed it throughout this year, so for the Wishtrend Black Friday Sale 2019, I am more than a little tempted to get it back on my vanity. The I’m from Honey Mask is such a classic in the Asian Beauty community, thanks to its yummy honey-like texture and smell. No wonder that it’s often mistaken for real honey, given that it contains 46.44 grams of natural honey in every 110g jar. This is a super, super nourishing mask perfect for parched winter skin. I love mixing this with a clay mask to prevent my skin from drying out and that combo has been one of the best treatments ever for breakouts! Shop the I’m from Honey Mask* during Black Friday with a 40% discount for only 22.80$ instead of 38.00$.
9. I’m from Mugwort Sheet Mask
The entire I’m from Mugwort skincare range is intriguing to me, and I’m so amazed at Wishtrend for basically being the first ones to spot the mugwort/artemisia trend that is sweeping the Korean beauty world this year. The I’m from Mugwort Sheet Masks have received rave reviews from people with both sensitive as well as acne-prone skin, and apparently they are a godsend for troubled, inflamed and oily skin. These ultra thin sheet masks are free from any alcohol or fragrance and mostly just contain mugwort extract, plus a few other hydrators and skin-soothing ingredients. I feel they would be a wonderful SOS skincare treatment right before my period, when my skin is extra sensitive and oily! You can get I’m from Mugwort Sheet Masks* in a pack of 10 for only 30.00$ instead of 40.00$, which means a 25% discount.
10. Cosrx One Step Original Clear Pad
There are a couple of good deals to be had if you are keen to stock up on Cosrx goodies during the Wishtrend Black Friday Sale 2019, but to me, the Cosrx One Step Original Clear Pads are especially tempting, since they were sold out everywhere for a long time. These cult favourites have been around for a while, but they still top the bestseller lists of most K-beauty bloggers – and for good reason, given how gently, yet effectively they exfoliate. These are great for chemical peeling beginners and for anyone who wants a mild daily exfoliation routine. Buy the Cosrx One Step Original Clear Pads* at Wishtrend for currently only 12.00$ instead of 20.00$, so 40% off the regular price!
Wishtrend Black Friday Sale 2019: The Bottom Line
There are so many deals to be had during the Wishtrend Black Friday Sale 2019, even though overall I feel the previous years offered just a teeny bit more benefits. Nevertheless, especially if you do your big shop for the year during the sale and manage to spend over 200$, you get countless amazing extra deals and gifts, and even for single products there are some great offers for everyone.
I hope you find what you are in need of during the sale and don’t feel pressured to shop things just out of “FOMO” – remember, there is always a new sale coming up at some stage. Just in case the Wishtrend brands aren’t what you are looking for, I also have a list of all other K-beauty Black Friday Sales 2019 on the blog, so do check that one out as well.
