A Guide to Black Friday: ESPA’s Essentials

Black Friday can be a somewhat overwhelming time of year. With discounts and deals being strewn in all directions and no guide to Black Friday, there seems to be two contrasting responses to retail’s prime time of year. Firstly, you can get drawn into the frenzy of the day and end up impulse buying. Alternatively, you can turn a blind eye to the emails and advertisements, ignoring the day’s existence entirely. There are two major flaws with both of these responses. The first is ending up with items you don’t necessarily need or want. The second is missing out on the reduced prices of things you may have bought otherwise.

To steer you in the right direction this year, we have compiled our list of gifts for you that you’ll never regret purchasing. Here’s ESPA’s guide to Black Friday.

ESPA's guide to black friday products

To take care of your skin

For those who look after their skin, this time of year is an excellent opportunity to stock up on some skincare essentials.

Facial Cleansers

The first essential in our guide to Black Friday is a cleanser. The main component of a skincare regime, a cleanser not only revitalises and refreshes your complexion in the mornings and evenings but can help to sweep away impurities and maintain clear, glass-like skin. Within our luxurious range are cleansers that have each been formulated to work universally while also targeting concerns to provide you with a smooth, bright base. From aromatic cleansing sorbets to double cleanses that suit all skin types, take this opportunity to treat yourself to clean, replenished skin on a daily basis.

Facial Moisturisers

Another skincare necessity is a moisturiser. Within ESPA’s range of targeted and daily moisturisers you will find the solution for deep, soothing hydration, whatever your skin type may be. Whether you are seeking to quench a dehydrated complexion, minimise visual signs of ageing, or protect your skin from the harmful rays of the sun, within this range of natural skin creams are unique formulas to target your skin concern, from our 24-Hour Replenishing Moisturiser to our Optimal Skin Pro-Moisturiser with SPF 30.

To indulge in a pamper

At ESPA, we wholeheartedly believe in the holistic care of the body. This means taking into account the body, mind, and soul for an overall improved sense of well-being. A large component of this is to take some ‘me time’ to rest the mind.

Bath & Body Oils

Slipping into a bath with warm water and a luscious, nourishing bath oil instantly soothes the senses, muscles, and mind. Multi-tasking as luxury body oils, ESPA’s range of bath oils has been specially formulated with a rich mélange of Avocado, Sweet Almond, and Soybean Oils to support the skin’s natural moisture barrier, leaving it soft and supple. What’s more, you can choose between blends of various essential oils that harness the power of aromatherapy to elevate your intimate time with yourself, from Restful to Positivity.

Natural Haircare

Many of us overlook the sheer importance of a good hair day. With mineral-rich, pure ingredients and fresh, fruity actives, ESPA’s range of natural haircare takes you beyond a usual wash to an experience of pampering. What’s more, with our specially collated duos and sets, you can take the first step towards a regimen that achieves enviably soft and luscious hair. Spend the evening conditioning the hair and nourishing the scalp with the Pink Hair and Scalp Mud or upgrade your haircare regimen with this luxurious, nurturing Haircare Collection for a salon-fresh feeling and confidence.

To transform a house into a home

To upgrade your house to a soothing sanctuary, it needs to be comfortable, cozy, and contain a sense of luxury. Luckily, this doesn’t entail drastic changes- small additions to the home can do wonders.

Home Fragrances

A beautifully aromatic home is one that will soothe the senses as soon as you step through the door. Within ESPA’s home fragrances range are products that have been crafted with a blend of essential oils that can match and enhance the particular energy of a room. From the Soothing Candle to a Positivity Diffuser, find the scent you desire and utilise it to uplift the mood as you relax in the sitting room or settle into bed.

Luxury Throws & Blankets

As summer slips away and the evenings become shorter and chillier, the perfect way to keep toasty and cozy is by snuggling up underneath a blanket or throw. Within this ESPA range are a cotton weighted blanket and a woollen throw that have been designed to help to enhance the tranquillity of your home and continue to bring that unique blissful experience to your own space.

So this Black Friday, start by taking a deep breath. Create a wishlist of the items you have wanted for some time and take advantage of this annual opportunity to save some money on your favourite pieces of self-care and homeware. Happy shopping!
