   I've been on a reduced/no spend for the last month to save up for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. I just did my first Black Friday purchase, I did an order off Wishtrend. I've never bought from them before but I've eyed up some of the deals multiple times. 

    Vitacost is doing 20% off orders $50 or more.  Code VALHW3YQ  

    I think Briscoes has something big planned for Black Friday.

    
   I'm waiting to see what specials and gwp Origins has planned for the weekend and Monday. I have my eye on their spf eyecream which happens to be in giftset and they ship to forwarding addresses! 

    I also have my eye on another site that sells Supergoop! since I want their spf eyecream as well but so far they haven't had any specials that I'm interested and their international shipping is expensive and they won't ship to forwarding companies :-( . I wrote them and asked if they could since the ship all ove the US for free.  

    Also on my list if there's discounts - more online workout programs, a couple of the Real Techniques Power Bleu brushes, maybe a Beautylish, Beauty Bliss and/or Sephora haul. 

   So does anyone else have their eye on anything they want to get over Black Friday and Cyber Monday? Anyone know of any good beauty and NBR deals?

   Did my Origins order they were offering a full sized Plantscription eyecream free if you spent 65 USD and the giftset I had in my cart was 55 bucks, so threw in a 16 dollar handcream in to make the cut.

YesStyle.com has a sale with up to 80% off some items and free premium standard shipping if you spend 50NZD. Most of the stuff is 60% off. I'm pretty tempted remembering some items I really wanted to get but then forgot about on sale, but I gotta slow down since I already did two large online orders yesterday and it's not even Black Friday yet.

   You should've seen me all buzzed up uber late really early this morning, live chatting with customer service on a site overseas. Trying to discuss the gwp and discounts. I need to narrow things down too. Some sites didn't have the sales on the items I wanted to get and so far Meccabeauty hasn't had any specific Black Friday specials unless they have an e-mail ready to get sent out in a couple hours notifying me about some awesome discount or gwp.

Hikoco is having a 10-40? % off items storewide. I've ordered from them before so I was searching sitewide for which items and brands are the most discounted for Black Friday and it's Mizon with 40% off. Most items are about 10%-20% off.

I'm quite tempted by that NIOD set but I've already spent too much on my credit card this month.  I might have to put a note in my calendar for next year.  I really want to get hold of Survival 30 too :P.

Re-Create Yourself has 25% off

Paulas Choice has 20% off, free shipping and a free gift if you spend $100 (they have released a 4% BHA and it's fantastic!).

PS Tannygirl, REALLY liking The Ordinary Granactive 5% Retinoid in Squalane.  Beautiful texture!  Highly recommend.

  I know so many good sales! I'm having to take a step back and do the math on how much I'm going to save potential in product value or discounts for what I'm spending on some orders versus other sites where I could get more bang for my buck today. 

   Imoshen the Granactive 5% Retinoid in Squalane is on my list of products I want to try! What's the texture like is it oily, like a light oil? Is it really gentle on your skin?  I've been using the  Granactive 2% Retinoid Emulsion. Love it! So gentle and non-irritating I use it on nights I exfoliate and do peels. It actually seems to absorb better if I apply it before I apply the water based serums unless they're really watery like the Argireline or my Antipodes Hosanna Serum. I apply those two first before I apply the Retinoid 2%.

Not beauty, but I got return flights to Japan for $835 from Air NZ!!! They're for the first week of the April school holidays too. Being a school teacher I never get cheap flights anywhere as I can only travel in the school holidays. So excited! But that's me not indulging in any other Black Friday sales lol.

   I did score some good deals. I saw the 25% off at Recreate Yourself and they had that Rosegold giftset from Alpha H that I wanted to try but Beauty Bliss wasn't running a sale on and they had the Sigma Dry and Shape Spa that I had been wanting since the beginning of the year but always evaded me. I almost did an order but then I saw shipping was 13 dollars did the math and hemed and hawed and then the Sigma Dry and Shape Spa evaded me again!

Tannygirl - It's a bit like a dry oil.  One drop split between fingers is enough to do cheeks, chin and possibly forehead.  If you have used the EUK 134 it's a bit like that in texture.  You don't need much at all.

I haven't used it twice in a row yet as I'm trying to spread out the retinol between Differin, Retin A and the Retinoid and of course having a couple of days break to give the skin a rest.

  Imoshen I bought the EUK 134 but haven't opened the bottle yet but it sounds really good. When it comes to the Ordinary I buy the first bottle and check how my skin reacts to it and if I don't get a bad reaction then I get another tube or bottle and use it till it's all used up. Then when I review it or decide to keep it in my routine or move on to something else I have a better idea of whether it gives me results or not because I gave it plenty of time.
  So far the products I've really loved and kept in my routine since I started the Ordinary are the Niacinamide, Alpha Arbutin, Granactive Retinoid 2% (although I want to try the 5% in Squalane now too, I will keep a Retinoid in my nighttime skincare routine) and the Buffet. I am currently using MAP and really like it as well but also want to try other the vitamin C products. Just recently bought the Glycolic Toner and I'm really liking the results I'm getting so far, I've never used an acid toner before but it's so easy to fit into my routine on nights that I'm supposed to do a peel but I'm too tired or lazy. 
  Which products from the Ordinary did you layer in the same morning or night routine with the EUK 134?
