You may have noticed some posts from our friends at the Strategist on the Cut. They’ll be dropping in every now and again, sharing their expertise on the basics you don’t have time to research and the weird and wonderful things you don’t yet know you need.
Black Friday is arguably the best time of year to stock up on pricey beauty products you might not buy otherwise — like this rarely-on-sale Augustinus Bader cream that the Cut’s Kathleen Hou has dubbed “the secret to rich-person skin.” It’s a favorite of celebrities (Victoria Beckham, a longtime fan, even collaborated with the brand to make a “cell-rejuvenating” moisturizer for her eponymous beauty line) and beauty enthusiasts alike thanks to its ability to reduce signs of aging while also brightening and tightening the skin. We’ve even called it the best night cream for dry skin, noting its ability to deeply repair the skin while you sleep. It’s currently on sale during Violet Grey’s Black Friday sale (a selection of its best products are 20 percent off when you use the code CYBER2020), bringing its high price of $265 down to a slightly more reasonable $212. And in case you want even richer skin, the Rich Cream — which has the added benefit of nourishing oils like argan, avocado, and evening primrose — is also on sale for the same price.
The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best acne treatments, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, natural anxiety remedies, and bath towels. We update links when possible, but note that deals can expire and all prices are subject to change.
