4 min read

This story is part of Holiday Gift Guide 2021, our list of ideas, by topic, by recipient and by price, to help you discover the perfect gift.

There are so many different beauty brands out there that it’s impossible to pick just one, right? If you have a beauty obsession like I do, I can help by rounding up all the current deals out there and future ones to come.

There’s a little bit for everyone here. If you’re looking for skin care tailored to mature skin, Ole Henriksen has a deal, or if you want a whimsical but effective skin care line that’s pretty to look at, GlamGlow is a great option. If you need new makeup, you’ll find Fenty Beauty and KVD Beauty with some stellar offers on products that’ll help you achieve your favorite look.

Current Beauty Deals


Dermstore is offering new customers a 15% discount on their first purchase when you use the code WELCOME15. Dermstore is a one-stop shop that sells both dermatologist-recommended items and trendy, budget-friendly brands.

Glow Recipe

If you missed Glow Recipe’s Black Friday sales and wished you had another chance for a deal, now’s the time. Using CNET’s exclusive offer code CNET15, you can get 15% off everything except for its skin care kits until Dec. 31. 

Ulta Beauty

This is one of the new brands I’ve tried, and my skin has never been brighter and clearer. Right now, you can get 30% off holiday sets, including the Glow Diggers set, which has eye cream and an exfoliation mask that’s absolutely amazing.


Love perfume, but not the prices? You’re in luck because Sephora has a deal for 20% off full-size fragrances, plus free same day delivery. This deal will net you the latest from brands such as Dior, Replica, Marc Jacobs and more. I’ve been wearing Gucci Flora, Miss Dior and Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb for weeks now, and love how great all three smell. 

Ulta Beauty

There’s pretty much everything you could think of on sale right now. You can find the highly rated Revlon volumizer hot air brush, Ulta’s very own beauty box, Anastasia Beverly Hills glow kits and more. With more than 700 items to choose from at all kinds of prices, there’s no way you’re leaving this deal empty handed.

Fenty Beauty

Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty is a well-known business, so let’s just get into the deal: When you buy any products totaling $100, you’ll get 25% off (no offer code needed). While you pick up your favorite makeup products, you might want to throw in Rihanna’s new liquid Killawatt Fluid Freestyle highlighter too. You have until Dec. 19 to get this deal.

Bite Beauty

Bite Beauty is offering a special bargain on lip care. You can buy its clean makeup lip care like the Agave+ Nighttime lip therapy balm, the Agave+ lip tint tin and more. There’s no coupon code needed because the discount is already applied.

Ole Henriksen

This skin care line is for women and men who need a little extra support to get their skin back in shape. Try this brand if you need to balance your complexion with an oil control kit, combat aging or boost hydration. For today only, you can get 22% off sitewide, plus four free gifts on orders $50 or more. The discount automatically applies in the cart. When you use the offer code FOUR at checkout and click “select bonus products,” you can choose your gifts.
