As the walking excel-sheet of all Black Friday deals here at Teen Vogue, I already have my sites bookmarked and ready to go for before, during, and after Black Friday — even if my bank account (and my mom) highly oppose. What can I say? Perks of the job! But I’m not the only Teen Vogue editor ready to shop ’til they drop during Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and Giving Tuesday.
Yes, we know Black Friday and Cyber Monday are the epitomai of capitalism but it’s still hard not to fall for the sales and deals. Why spend a fortune on that special item you had an eye on if you can get it at a discounted price?
We’ve already shared what the Teen Vogue team is gifting (and not-so-secretly want gifted) this holiday season and now I’m asking the team what are their go-to sites for shopping during Cyber Week and what exactly are they looking to score. From K-Beauty and designer deals to tech gadgets and home goods, keep scrolling to see what we’re spending our money on during Cyber Weekend
“Excited to see what K-beauty store Soko Glam has going on this Black Friday! They typically do a 30% off sale, and I’m in dire need of re-upping this delicious-smelling Moistfull Collagen Cream from Etude House. Would love to snag some brands I haven’t tried yet, too — like good light’s Cosmic Dew Water Cleanser.” — Claire Dodson, Senior Entertainment Editor
“I’ve been eyeing this skort for a number of reasons. Athleisure has been popular for quite some time now and exercise skirts have been on the rise. This one in particular has a flattering silhouette, reliable shorts underneath, and everyone’s favorite thing: pockets! Plus, it’s sustainable so you can feel good about your purchase in more ways than one. Now that everything is 30% off during Black Friday, I might even buy the matching top too.” — Donya Momenian, Fashion and Beauty Associate Editor
“I haven’t stopped thinking about this mask after I tried a sample in a Sephora haul a few years back. A lot of masks can leave your skin feeling a little dehydrated afterward but this purple cream mask not only left my face feeling hydrated but gave my complexion a nice natural glow. I’m definitely grabbing this Black Friday deal before we head into the winter months.” — Ashley Wolfgang, Associate Manager of Audience Development
“Skims has been on everyone’s radar since the brand first launched in 2018. I’ve slowly accumulated a few products and have become a part of the club like everyone else. I love the products because I spend 85% of my time lounging around, which is what the brand is exactly for. Kim’s latest drop with the soft lounge, long sleeve dress was calling my name, but I sadly missed it once again. Skims sells out so quickly so I’m hoping with this Black Friday sale I can get my hands on some products this go around.” — Aiyana Ishmael, Editorial Assistant
“My dad is a huge tech nerd. He’s always loved the newest technology — we always had the coolest gadgets growing up. So, I plan on getting him a new iPhone. The iPhone 13’s camera is phenomenal, it’s waterproof, has a longer battery life, and has a durable ceramic shield.” — Danielle Kwateng, Executive Editor
“If there is a sale I’m going to shop religiously each year, it’s the SSENSE sale. The memes go viral for a reason — because, yes, it’s that good. As soon as you hit check out, I swear the package is already been shipped. So fast, so reliable! We love to see it.” — Bianca Nieves, Commerce Editor
“ILIA’s Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 has been my go-to all summer long so I’m in dire need of a re-stock so you bet I’ll be checking their site to snag any deals they might have.” — Bianca Nieves, Commerce Editor
“I ran the NYC marathon this year and seriously experienced some of the worst sore muscles of my life in the months of training before and afterward. I tried out a Therabody at my Physical Therapist’s office and instantly knew I needed one for myself. I’ll be scoring this deal this year as well.” — Ashley Wolfgang, Associate Manager of Audience Development
“I loooove art books. For myself, I’ll be getting Ferren Gipson’s The Ultimate Art Museum. It’s a vibrantly illustrated book that highlights ‘some of the most important art, movements, and artists in art history.’ I love when history is broken down in digestible bites, so this is one I’ll keep in the house for myself and young nieces.” — Danielle Kwateng, Executive Editor
“I’ve been getting heavy into skin-care lately and really want to stock up on more skincare products to try over the winter break. I’ve heard good things about the brand Banish and they have a 25% off Black Friday sale coming up that I’m hoping to get a few products from. They look great so I want to try them out now especially at a discounted price. They have their Holiday Glow Up Kit which normally retails at $303 going for $195 so that’s definitely a steal.” — Aiyana Ishmael, Editorial Assistant
“After hearing everyone and their mothers — my own mother included — rave about their spiffy iPad Pro, I finally was able to get my hands on one and I never want to use my computer again! It’s given me the chance to explore so many more digital design and illustration techniques and has been so great for working on the go. I definitely will be checking out the iPad deals on Black Friday to share with friends and family!” — Liz Coulbourn, Designer
