Nobody looks forward to a Thanksgiving food coma more than I do (Ok, maybe you do but we will never know).  I am usually lulled to sleep earlier than usual only to wake up in the wee hours of the morning with pie crumbs around my face and nothing much to do. A few years ago I started checking out online Black Friday deals because I was never moved to rush out into the cold craziness that is traditional Black Friday shopping. This year, I’ve rounded up some great beauty deals that can be had online on Black Friday and beyond. I have also included deals from other sources that may not be a complete zoo on Black Friday. So, grab your nice little list and let’s go stimulate the economy!

Writer @ChristeneCarr keeps complexion clean and moisturized with…read on:

Sometimes I am just so pooped I don’t even have time to brush my pearly whites let alone wash and and moisturize my face. In July, I was introduced to Lumene (see review here) and fell in love with, Lumene Sensitive Touch Cleansing Wipes.  I have tried many facial wipes before but Lumene is the only one that doesn’t sting when I used it to remove eye makeup. I keep these bad boys right by the bed and on those nights when I’m too tired to even remove my jeans, let alone wash my face, I reach for Lumene Sensitive Touch Cleansing Wipes.

Lumene Sensitive Touch Cleansing Wipes are formulated 100% organic  arctic linen seed extract, castor oil, glycerin and vitamin E.  The cleansing wipes are suitable for face, eye, and lip makeup removal. They’re also alcohol-free, colorant-free, fragrance-free, paraben-free, paraffinoil-free and silicone free.

Ideally, I would want to moisturize my face before bed but skipping one night of moisturizing after using Lumene Sensitive Touch Cleansing wipes definitely doesn’t hurt my skin.

At a price of 2.99 or less at Target, CVS and Ulta Beauty, you can keep a steady stock of Lumene Sensitive Touch Cleansing Wipes by your bed and in your handbag, for those unexpected sleepovers. :)

Lumene products fuse technology and Artic natural ingredients to create targeted skin care potions that take the guess work out of choosing. Product categories and offerings are broken down based on age, skin type, and usage. The packaging includes an easy-to-use age range usage scale (back of packaging) and color coded matching system to clearly identify products in each line, and sun/moon symbols to denote day or night usage.

The Vitamin C+ product range is designed for women 25+. The use of cluodberry seed oil and nectar, lingonberry, blueberry and cranberry seed oil along with Vitamin C, offer optimal protection against the signs of aging and provide detoxifying benefits.

Excellent Future is designed for women 30+ (like yours truly). The products help to promote skin’s ability to repair. According to Lumene, through the unique formulation called ApplexcellT, which contains stem cells from the Scandinavian Uttwiler Spatlauber apple and Arctic white peat, skin’s structure is strengthened by improving its barrier system and moisture balance.

Time Freeze is for women 40+. The product range contains Artic heather and plant proteins, and according to Lumene, “extract from heather flowers help maintain healthy levels of collagen and elastin fibers in skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines.” Arbutin, a skin brightener, is found in the stalks of the heather plant and help to lighten and prevent pigment changes.

Premium Beauty products are formulated for 50+ skin. The line is intended to  “minimize the signs of aging and boost skin’s natural functions to achieve firmer, smoother texture and a more even (skin) tone.” The Premium Beauty products use Scandinavian sea buckthorn oil and nectar as well as aTri-peptide compound.

For beauties with sensitive skin, Lumene has a specially formulated line just for you! The products are developed in cooperation with Finnish Allergy and Asthma Federation, a non-profit public health organization based in Helsinki. Free of parabens, fragrance, mineral oils, alcohol and silicones — the Sensitive Touch line is a custom fit for finicky skin.

So, no matter what your skin type, chances are you will find a Lumene product that is right for you. Lumene products are available at CVS, Sears, Ulta Beauty and Target. Stay tuned for a review of products from the Excellent Future line.
