BOGO: This wildly popular 4-in-1 skin care wand (plus serum)

This beauty award-winning wand and serum set was already a steal, but for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, you can buy one to give as a gift and get a second kit for free (we won’t judge if you keep one for yourself). The dermatologist- and esthetician-loved wand combines multiple spa-grade features in one for an effective skin care treatment that you can easily perform at home within minutes. Red light therapy is the most impressive technology featured, which has been shown to stimulate collagen production. But the wand also uses Galvanic current, facial massage, and therapeutic warmth to help depuff the skin and boost product absorption. Then, there’s the serum included in this set, which uses ingredients like hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, and blue tansy flower oil to moisturize and soothe the skin (you’ll also need the serum to activate the wand, FYI).

20% off Exponent Beauty X Favorite Daughter gift set

This three-piece set is a bit of a splurge, but it also makes for a great luxury gift idea with this 20% off sale. From Exponent Beauty — the skin care line all about keeping your active ingredients more potent by mixing them on the spot — the set includes the brand’s Time Rewind Retinol Powder and Quadruple Hyaluronic Acid Hydrator (each with its own dispenser). Together, the duo gives you 30 doses of a retinol serum that will deliver multiple benefits to the skin, from smoothing and evening the overall skin tone and texture by speeding up skin cell renewal to stimulating collagen production. And to rival your post-serum glow, there’s a citrus-colored wool and cashmere blend sweater from Favorite Daughter, the sister-founded brand created by Erin and Sara Foster.

40% off this red light therapy hair and scalp care device

Skin care devices tend to get all of the glory in the beauty world, but Laduora is bringing some attention to the scalp, too (it is an extension of the skin on your face, after all). When you use code BFCM40, you can get the brand’s Duo 4-In-1 Pod for $156 (a savings of over $100). As you slowly brush the handheld device from the top of your scalp through the ends of your hair, red light therapy at 680 nanometers helps promote hair growth. You’ll also get a gentle scalp massage with sonic vibration and electrical stimulation, and therapeutic warmth offers a spa-life feel that helps the Laduora serum of your choice to penetrate more deeply. Also called Duo Pods, you can attach the serum capsule right into the center of the device, customizing your treatment with the soothing Awaken, moisturizing Balance or hair growth-enhancing Boost formulas.

40% off a red and blue light therapy kit

If you’ve yet to try the benefits of light therapy on your skin, Laduora’s Velve Pro Wand (paired with a serum) is marked down to just $72 when you use code BFCM40. The easy-to-use device includes features like heat therapy, sonic vibration, and micro-currents to create a spa-like effect at home. But it also lets you target concerns specific to your skin with a blue light therapy mode that eliminates acne-causing bacteria and a red light therapy mode that stimulates collagen production. Either way, you’ll want to apply a layer of the included Watermelon Gelato Serum before powering up your device, which is infused with ingredients like niacinamide, peptides, and watermelon extract to further help fade hyperpigmentation, plump up skin, and moisturize.

20% off this cutting-edge serum discovery set

For a comprehensive introduction to the Exponent Beauty brand, there’s this Discovery Set, which is currently on sale for under $35. The 10-piece kit gives you three full treatments of the vitamin C, retinol, and CoQ10 formulas (each in a powder that’s been pre-measured and individually packaged), as well as the hyaluronic acid base so you can mix up your custom serum.

20% off a red light face mask that helps boost collagen and elastin

For a hands-free light therapy experience, this chargeable face mask was designed to help keep you on the move. Made from medical grade silicone, the mask is flexible so it better molds to your face, and the straps across the side and top of the mask to ensure that it really stays in place. You can select from a 10- or 20-minute treatment, but every session uses 630 nanometers of red light to boost collagen production and promote relaxation.

30% off this cult-favorite shampoo and conditioner set

Coco & Eve may be best known for its cult-favorite hair mask. But if your hair wash routine could use more moisture, this shampoo and conditioner duo is 30% off during Black Friday. Developed for normal to dry hair types, both the shampoo and conditioner are free from sulfates and silicones that can secretly zap hair of moisture and volume. Instead, the formulas concentrate on cleaning the hair and infusing it with ingredients like coconut fruit extract, avocado oil, argan oil, and hydrolyzed pea protein to enhance the hair’s softness, shine, and strength.

20% off this unique skin-firming treatment system

For a gift that puts the spotlight on skin care, you can try one of Exponent Beauty’s starter systems for 20% off. The clinically tested set begins with the brand’s refillable base and powder dispenser, which precisely dispatches the exact amount of active powder and hydrator that you need to mix up a single dose of your serum. In this case, you’ll receive the CoQ10 powder, which helps to protect skin from environmental factors and even promotes collagen and elastin production. You’ll get a 30 full doses of the serum in the set, and once you’ve finished, you can keep the base and powder dispenser and just restock on the hydrator and powder of your choosing.

20% off an innovative infrared sauna blanket for maximum relaxation

Already covered on the at-home skin care devices? This infrared sauna blanket lets you take your wellness game to the next level with a far infrared ray blanket that can be used to get in a good sweat (minus the workout), soothe sore muscles, and help you relax during the stressful holiday season. Currently on sale for 20% off when you use code HDBFCM, the blanket uses a layered approach to complement the far infrared heat, including a charcoal and clay layer to potentially help flush out toxins, and an amethyst and tourmaline crystal layer to support the benefits of the infrared. You can choose from a 30- or 45-minute session, and once you’re done, HigherDose recommends rinsing off in a cold shower to cool your system.

35% off this ultra-giftable lip scrub and lip balm duo

Whether you’re shopping for someone who loves a bold lip or is more the gloss-and-go type, this lip treatment duo will come in handy as the winter weather settles in. Currently on sale for $15.60 when you use code butterBUSTLE, the products work together to combat dry, cracked lips (and to help lipsticks, tints, and glosses wear better). Start by swiping on the Sugar Buttercream Treatment, which is a lip scrub that pairs exfoliating sugar crystals and finely ground coconut shell powder with moisturizing jojoba seed oil. After gently massaging the scrub over your lips, you can wipe it right off and follow up with the Pink Champagne Treatment, a lightly tinted balm that’s packed with nourishing ingredients like coconut oil, jojoba seed oil, and shea butter.

17% off this clever insulated jacket for your dog

Don’t forget your beloved pooch this holiday season. Treat your furry friend to one of these cozy insulated jackets so they can enjoy their winter adventures with you even more. Not only will they look adorable, but the comfy polytech fill will help keep them happy and warm. The jackets showcase two-way zippers and cute reversible designs that come in a variety of patterns and colors. Plus, the microtomic ripstop material is ultra-durable — and the reflective accents help keep your pup visible after dark.

51% off a polish set that actually helps strengthen nails

If you’re looking for stocking stuffers that won’t break the bank, this nail polish duo from butter LONDON is currently on sale for less than $10. There’s the classic winter Boozy Chocolate color and a shimmery Bubbly Rosè shade that’s perfect for New Year’s celebrations, but both mini bottles use the same patented “Shock Resisting Polymer Technology” to coat nails in a glossy, gel-like shine that won’t chip or fade for up to 10 days. The 10-free polishes also include nail-strengthening ingredients like bamboo extract to help prevent nail breakage and peeling.
