At The Body Brat, I love sharing my thoughts and ideas to make readers more confident in how they shop for their body and overall lifestyle. If you like some of my suggestions and choose to purchase through the links below, I may receive a commission. Also, keep in mind pricing and availability are subject to change.
While many people are shopping their “tried and true” brands today, I’m shopping my tried and true Black-owned beauty brands for Black Friday.
In case you forgot, I am a Black person and also a shopping editor, so I know exactly where all the good sh*t is for us Black folx and non-Blacks. Black people, particularly Black women, have set the beauty trends of y2k and now, of today. There are a plethora of Black-owned beauty brands for Black Friday that have deals everyone can shop and enjoy. In this political climate or the next, you should shop Black regularly, and if you’re not, well, you’re really just missing out.
Shopping Black-owned businesses for Black Friday means you can support a group outside of your own. I mean this is the season of giving supposedly, right? Plus, you will probably never find deals from brands like these for the rest of the year. What can I say, we be stingy, as we should.
I hate to start with the Fenty Navy, but I have to say, you will be happy to know that there is a Fenty Beauty sale offering 30 percent off. For kinky curly haircare lovers, you’ll be happy to hear the newly released 4C Only hair care line for 4C naturals is doing 15% off its entire site as well. No pressure, but the leave-in conditioner is amazing (it’s also a heat protectant). Not to mention, Hyper Skin’s vitamin C serum is now 50 percent off.
There are a lot of great deals among some of my personal favorite Black-owned beauty brands, but here are the must-have products on sale just for today.
Hyper Skin Vitamin C Serum, $18 (Orig. $36)
a Black woman-owned brand addressing hyperpigmentation in the form of a vitamin C serum is 50 percent off with code HYPER50
Super Smoothie, $18
Rosen Skincare is doing buy 2, get 1 free on all solo products with the code BLACKFRIDAY20. For this, I recommend the brands Super Smoothie Cleanser, Charcoal Mask and Tropics Moisturizer as a full-on dark spot routine.
Buttah Skin Charcoal Detox Mask, $16.80 (Orig. $24)
Buttah Skin’s charcoal mask goes on smooth like butter. I’m already shopping for my second jar, but this mask leaves your skin supple after one use.
4C Only Leave-in Conditioner, $19.10 (Orig. $22.50)
The newly released haircare brand for 4C hair is offering the entire line as a bundle and individual items 15 percent off. As I said, the leave-in is a bop, so like, hop on that.
TPH by Taraji Master cleanse, $11.24 (Orig. $14.99)
As someone who’s still learning that healthy hair starts at the scalp, this master cleanse scalp wash is the go-to on wash days. It’s minty fresh and makes wash day a more thorough and effective routine.
Carol’s Daughter Wash Day Delight Sulfate-Free Shampoo, $7.69 (Orig. $10.99)
When the world was still open, I went to the launch for this product and it’s the real deal. You only need a little as this shampoo works in tandem with micellar water to thoroughly cleanse the scalp.
Bready Beauty Favorites, $23.80 (Orig. $28)
Bread Beauty’s line for 3a – 4c curls is offering 15 percent off sitewide. But I have to say the rumors are true. It makes your hair glossy without being greasy and it smells like sheer candy. Also, the bread puff is the perfect scrunchie for thick hair.
Pattern Mini Stylers Bundle, $26 (Orig. $34)
Pattern by Tracy Ellis Ross is doing a Cyber sale of 25 percent off, and if you haven’t yet tried the stylers, snag this Mini Stylers Bundle for just $26.
Range Beauty True Intentions Hydrating Foundation, $13.65 (Orig. $21)
Range Beauty is the clean beauty brand for the forgotten shades. The True Intentions Foundation is the perfect everyday makeup that’s lightweight but still offers a slight glow after application.
Beauty Bakerie Flower Powder, $14.40 (Orig. $24)
Of all the powders, this Flower Powder is one of my tried and true ones that Jackie Aina put me onto back in the day. It’s still a banger and it’s buttery AF upon application.
Ace Beaute Blossom Palette, $21 (Orig. $34.99)
I have every Paradise Palette fro Ace, but this one is the one I’ve been pulling most often as it has a more everyday look to it. These shadows have pigment unlike a lot of the ones you find on the market. Trust and believe a little goes a long way.
Uoma Beauty Hey Big Head Dual -Density Sponge, $9
Now I’m not sure if it’s the sale or what, but this Hey Big Head sponge from Uoma used to be $15, but it’s now retailing for $9. I also have no problem saying this sponge is better than the BeautyBlender for me *cowers* I know it’s bold, but this dual-ended sponge blends out makeup to perfection.
