Best Boots Black Friday deals in 2022

Owing to Black Friday’s proximity to Christmas, the shopping bonanza offers the perfect time to get your gifting sorted. This set from Iconic London includes all of the beauty essentials for a glowy make-up look, including the brand’s highlighter and setting spray, as well as eyeshadow and mascara. All the favourites come neatly packaged inside a make-up bag. A great present for yourself or another beauty-lover, especially while it’s more than half price.

Skincare favourite Estée Lauder is known for its powerful products that produce excellent results. With six hero products, this set includes everything you need to achieve a glowy complexion during the festive party season. One of the biggest highlights is the travel-sized version of the hugely popular advanced night repair serum, which was praised by our writer for leaving their skin “soft and silky smooth, comfortably hydrated and cool”.

Propelled to fame thanks to TikTok, Maybelline’s popular product featured in our review of the best mascaras, with our writer noting the “long, thin and flexible brush head combines a formula of bamboo extract and fibres that builds volume and length with each stroke, but also separates lashes for a fanned-out look”. They added that the formula of the lash sensational sky high mascara “outshines the rest”.

While the phrase “cult classic” gets thrown around a lot in the beauty world, there’s no denying Pixi glow tonic has reached that status. Praised in our review for “skin balancing and softening” abilities, it works to tighten and brighten the skin, making it a great product to have in your skincare bounty. The gift set also includes Pixi’s popular peel and polish, which loosens and exfoliates dead skin cells to reveal a brighter complexion. Both products will work in tandem with one another to make sure you’re looking your best self ahead of Christmas.

This cleansing water currently comes with a sizeable discount, which is particularly impressive, considering it was named the best budget buy in our review of the best micellar waters. Our tester said “one cotton pad worth of product can lift a full face of make-up without the need for scrubbing your skin raw”. They added that it’s been one of their beauty staples for years, simultaneously removing make-up and soothing skin. Snap this up now while it’s less than £3.

Black Friday serves as the perfect time to snap up electric beauty devices and, thankfully, Boots has slashed the price of the Philips lumea, which featured in our review of the best IPL machines. Our tester found their hair began to “decrease in density and thickness after three treatments, which is faster than most of the devices” they tried. Owing to the impressive results, we’d recommend making use of this sizeable discount while you can.

Searching for a new perfume? Boots is currently offering discounts on some of your favourite scents, including the Dior sauvage eau de parfum (£125, now £115, But if you’re a huge fan of the j’adore perfume, you’ll be glad to know that it’s currently £116 for a 100ml bottle.

While not the most exciting purchase, it’s certainly a great investment for cleaner, healthier teeth and gums. This very device was named the best for newbies in our guide to water flossers, with our tester noting: “Waterpik is the world’s best-selling water flosser brand and therefore knows a thing or two about keeping your teeth clean.” They found this “feels like it’s getting the job done”, adding it’s “an all-around great buy for anyone new to water flossing”.
