Photo-Illustration: by The Cut; Photo: Retailers

During this holiday weekend the retailer is offering plenty of deals that can’t be beat — especially if you consider their fast shipping which makes last minute gifting even better.

Do you want a Cut Shop–approved product to get a perfect slicked-back bun? Do you need a new pair of headphones? A new pillow, perhaps? This is the place where you can cut through the Amazon Black Friday noise and purchase things that aren’t necessarily impulse buys. Unless … We won’t judge.

Bioderma Sensibio H2O
$24 for 2
$24 for 2

Board-certified dermatologist and co-founder of Stryke Club, Dr. Sheilagh Maguiness, highly recommends this face cleanser and what better time to stock up on the expert-approved one?

NuFACE Mini Starter Kit

Is it really a Black Friday sale if we aren’t including a NuFace device?

Weleda Skin Food Original

Behold the under $15 moisturizer that we love. This thick paste is derm approved (Dr. Shereene Idriss swears by it.) In the colder months we suggest you put a thick layer on your lips at night, and wake up to softer, non-chapped skin.

Hair Wax Stick

A must-have for anyone who loves to do a slick-back bun. Says who? Says our senior shopping editor, Bianca Nieves.

The Cut Shop team might have converted to K18 but we can’t deny the hold Olaplex had (and sometimes still has) on our hair.

You’ve been putting off trying this cult-favorite hair dryer for how many years now? For under $30 it can be yours (or a very thoughtful gift) this holiday season.


Pimple patches double as the best stocking stuffers. These have hydrocolloid (yes, it works) and come in three different sizes.

Another product that works? These Crest Whitestrips. (Even my dentist recommended these over pricey professional services.) Plus: all of you seem to love whenever they are on sale.

This product is packed with squalane and Vitamin C, perfect for taking you (or a friend) into the colder months ahead.

The hair straightener Beyoncé (yes, Beyoncé) loves is 34 percent off.

Behold one of Soko Glam’s best-sellers. (They’re also having a sale, btw). This micro essense is great addition to anyone’s winter skincare routine since it provides the moisture you need before you jump into your routine.

TikTok knew what it was doing when it made this mascara go viral.

AirPods are a great stocking stuffer. Once you discover the wonders of their noise cancelling feature, you can never go back.

Casper Essential Pillow

All of our readers seemed to love this pillow being on sale during Prime Day. So if you were eyeing it then, but didn’t buy it or pillows weren’t even on your wishlist, that can change now.

Maybe the most “adult” gift idea on this list. Bissell makes some of the best cleaning tools out there, so consider gifting this to your friend who has invested in some expensive carpets or furniture for optimal upkeep.
