Every year as Black Friday and Cyber Monday roll around, it can be easy to revert to panic mode and launch into a shopping frenzy. But as we've all learned, this tactic does not play well with our commitment to the environment, nor our bank accounts when a week later a cloud lifts, and we're left to face pile of clothes, homewares or beauty products that just aren't quite right. Which is why here at RUSSH we're advocating for a slow, considered approach to the current sales, where forever pieces and wardrobe staples are favoured over compulsive purchases.
On the other hand, Black Friday is a great opportunity to knock over your Christmas shopping (if you're in need of further inspiration check out our Christmas gift guides). Either way, if you're seeking out that special something to last a lifetime, for your or your loved ones, we've compiled a list of our favourite Black Friday picks from the stores we love with some of the best sales.
Now that we've rounded up the products to keep your eyes peeled for during the coming Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, if you're wondering what retailers, designers, and labels are getting in on the action, naturally here at RUSSH we have you covered.
But first, what exactly is Black Friday all about and where did the shopping tradition come from? Find all the details about the origins of Black Friday, here. For those of you looking out for all the best in beauty sales, we've rounded up the deals from cult beauty brands.
