Fashion Shopping for Black Friday (Korean Fashion)

Disclaimer: Affiliate links are present in this post and the blog makes a small commision should you choose to use the links at no cost to you.

Today I will present to you a few stores where you can buy mostly Korean Fashion but also my own brand Ye Curly Shoppe, so I hope you enjoy the list. It will be short and sweet and mostly about the deals for black friday. This is the last post in my Black Friday shopping series unless I happen to find more time to write.

Ye Curly Shoppe: Here you can find original designs with motives representing curly hair and japanese culture (I live in Japan so it made sense, don’t come for me lol) it’s winter in Japan & America and Spring in Australia so I will show you my t-shirts and recommend you hoodies for staying warm this winter.

Yes Style: This is a site where I have spent a lot of money in Skincare and fashion but I digress, let’s discuss fashion. I have purchased a lot of knit dresses for this cold season and I have yet to be dissapointed sadly I don’t have many nice pictures wearing them and now it to late so I will simply share a few photos of a shirt, a cape and a dress I like and you can feel free to browse the site.

The black friday deak they are holding is 15% off with code: BLKFD21 and you can save up to 20% if you use my code SAKURA08 for an extra 5% so that’s a saving of 20% total while the offer lasts.

Kooding: This is another great K-beauty and K-Fashion store and they have quite a bargain for this black friday they are offering a Black Friday Sale of up to 50% off plus 10% off with code BLK21 until November 28th and for Cyber Monday Sale they offer and extra 15% off with code CYBER. They have a lot of Korean fashion brands to choose from but I definitively recommend checking out Envy Look and DABAGIRL

Rhassoul Clay Wash Recipe

Disclaimer: Some links may be affiliate and the blog makes a small commission should your purchase from them.

Now for the good stuff, as I promised yesterday I would try to post some more about the products I love from Anita Grant so I decided to share my Rhassoul clay mask because it’s a double function clay it’s moisturizing but also cleansing so you’re getting the best of both worlds.

50 grams of Rhassoul clay

30 ml of ylang ylang floral water

60 ml of warm peppermint tea

5 ml of Japanese camellia kissi oil

Mix together with a wooden spoon, then use a milk foamer to get an even, smooth, creamy consistency. You can mix it with the spoon only and it will be fine, I just like using the milk foamer.

I used these ingredients because they may have antiinflammatory properties and sebum regulation properties so I figured they would be good for an itchy scalp or just to gently clarify.

All products used are from Anita Grant except the tea.

Apply to dry hair and massage your scalp to remove product build up. Leave it on for at least 5 minutes and up to an hour. You can follow up with a shampoo like I do or your regular conditioner. For this wash day I used the Anita Grant Aloe Vera conditioning shampoo.

Rhassoul Clay Mask

I hope you have enjoyed this little recipe where I showcase some of the products I mentioned yesterday for the holiday sales.

Shopping deals to consider this Black Friday

Disclaimer: This post contans affiliate links, so a small commission will be made by the blog at no cost to you should you purchase using said links.

Today I will be listing stores/brands instead of individual products that have a nice selection of products and/or are offering good deals you need to know about.

Osocurly: UK based curly hair accesory brand that will for a fact have a significant discount. Normally with my code CURLYSAKURA for Osocurly you would get 15% off your order, but the discount is so significant that the codes have been deactivated during the sale, so you are in for a treat. What can you find at Osocurly? Mostly curly hair accesories such as Satin bonnets, Mist spray bottles and scrunchies. They also have satin pillowcases which are a dream to sleep on and are purported to keep your skin smooth while you sleep and these pillowcases will reduce breakage whether you have curly or straight hair, so I think they are a good investment. They offer products for adults and children. Please note that the store is closed right now and will open specially for the black friday sale, you can however sign up for early access via text messages.

Missha: This is one of my favorite Korean skincare and makeup brands, I highly recommend you check them out. They have an early access offer of up to 60% off so if you are looking to stock up on their legendary essence or are new to the brand and just want to give it a go this deal is actually quite good. What can you find at Missha? Things such as an extensive range of skincare and makeup. Don’t know where to start don’t worry I got you covered with my favorite products: MISSHA M Perfect Cover BB Cream SPF 42 PA+++(50ml), Time Revolution The First Essence 5X, Sheet Masks (all their sheets masks are amazing but my faves are the propolis and guaiazulene ones, feel free to choose what you like based on your needs).

Sol de Janeiro: This an American Brand that specializes in mostly body care and is known for creating wonderfully scented products. Now is always the time to feel warm sunlight on your skin. Sol de Janeiro body-loving products are addictive, with delicious gourmand fragrances and luxurious textures that touch all the senses. The deals the are having at the moment are: 20% Off Orders $35+,10% Off Bundles, Free Hand Sanitizer until Dec 23rd. Don’t know where to start with this brand don’t worry I’ve got you covered with my favorites: Brazilian Bum Bum Cream (a cult classic, if you had to try a single product from this brand then go for this one), Brazilian Kiss CupuaƧu Lip Butter (not a well known product but it’s the perfect lip care for Winter), Brazilian 4 Play Moisturizing Shower Cream-Gel.

Safe & Chic: This is a store that showcases cruelty free beauty, fashion and lifestyle and it carries a wide selection of really great products and is currently offering up to 20% off sitewide . What can I find at Safe and Chic? Makeup, skincare, haircare and fashion! Don’t know where to start with this brand don’t worry I’ve got you covered with my favorites: Innersense Organic Beauty and Rahua for haircare, Lily Lolo and Rituel de Fille for makeup, for skincare 100% pure and Indie Lee, in the fashion category I haven’t tried any of their brand yet but these few items caught my eye: Wooden Ships Daisy V Cotton Sweater- Washed Indigo, Sadie & Sage Boutique Savannah Smiles Sweater – Slate and Sadie & Sage Boutique Just Vibes Chunky Pullover – Ivory, I found myself liking a lot of items from Sadie & Sage Boutique tbh and I’m quite tempted to bite the bullet and get myself something from them.

Anita Grant: A UK based brand I have been using for years and have lots of favorites to share with you, but I’m getting ahead of myself here. Anita Grant is an ethically sourced, ecofriendly and organic haircare and skincare brand that has been a staple in my routine since 2017; so when I tell you the products are good it’s because they are GOOD and have been tried and true. I don’t know yet if they will have a black friday sale but last year they had 30% sitewide for cyber monday, so I expect them to come up with something good this year too. I have a long list of favorites so I will do a separate post with more details (if time permits), but for now I will simply list my favorites over the years so you can have an idea of what to look for at the site. My favorites list: Bentonite clay for skin and hair, Creamy cafe Latte Leave-in detangle conditioner (read the review here), Organic Unrefined Mongongo oil, Rhassoul clay, Japanese Camellia Kissi Oil, Rhassoul Deep Condish (I have a recipe), Babassu Shampoo Bars (You can choose from a variety of bars, I’m currently using the coconut milk and honey one and I love it!) Co-wash conditioner (I’m very picky when it comes to cowashing and this is one of my favorite cowashes ever. I like the citrus mint version better, but you can choose whichever you like between unscented, rosemary mint and citrus mint), Organic Virgin Argan Oil, Vanilla Dry Oil (I love this for my skin specially in winter, but it smells so great I use it all year round), Aloe Vera Conditioning Shampoo, Ylang Ylang Floral Water (perfect for my rhassoul clay recipe, I like Ylang Ylang floral water better than rose water and we all know rose water is bomb). Whew Chile this was a long list of products I hope I didn’t bore you, if you made it this far congratulations and thank you for reading. We only have one more recommendation left and it’s the end of the post I promise.

Curlyellie: It’s a UK based Custom Crafted Plant based haircare brand for Curly, Dry, Damaged, Frizzy and Wavy hair created originally for children but basically anybody can use curlyellie because it’s hypoallergenic as well and smells delicious ( You know how much I enjoy a good sensory experience and you get that with Curlyellie). I just discovered this brand this year when they kindly gifted me products and I can’t stress enough how good these products are, even if they were gifted to me you know my opinions are authentic. I like the whole range but my favorites are the detangling spray, the hair mask and the shampoo. They also have a sister brand Curlyellie intense more specifically for adults and while I haven’t tried anything from this range yet I thought I would share just in case you’re interested, because I find the range intriguing. Now on to the best part I got you the scoop on the Black Friday deals from Curlyellie they will be offering 10 pounds off with purchases over 36 pounds and 25 pounds off orders over 75 pounds and the codes are FRIDAY10 and FRIDAY25 depending on how much you spend.

Please note that none of the curlyellie links are affiliate, so the blog doesn’t receive any commission if you click them and use the codes (I note this since these products were gifted) the rest of the links are affiliate so the blog does make a small commission if you choose to buy using the links provided (All products mentioned purchased by me, except for the clothing items that I think I will buy too during the sale).

Thank you so much for reading and happy holiday shopping.
