Updated on Friday November 16, 2018: We literally track Black Friday deals and ads for hundreds of different stores and brands. And from all of those, there are just a few that never run any Black Friday sales at all. Lush, along with a few other premium brands like Tiffany and Louis Vuitton, happens to be one of those stores. That means no doorbuster deals, no storewide coupons, just another ordinary day at Lush Cosmetics. But does that mean they never ever run sales at other times of the year? No, fortunately not!
Lush Cosmetics has only one sale a year for just a few short hours and that’s actually coming up relatively soon. That’s on the day after Christmas (December 26th), which is also known as their Boxing Day sale. That’s when you can pick up an entire page of buy-one get-one free deals — everything from chocolatey face masks to salt-studded bath bombs — both in-stores and online. You just have to be super quick because they famously sell out out their most popular items in a matter of minutes.
With that being said, you can still shop your local Lush Cosmetics store on Black Friday as they will be open (we’re still working on confirming the store hours for you so stay tuned for that). Some locations will also open in the afternoon on Thanksgiving day. Plus, right now they have their all new Christmas 2018 collection available. Some of our favorites include the Santa, Snowman, a Woodsy Princess fizzy bath bombs; the Cinders shower gel; the Rudolph Jelly face mask; and Star Light Star Bright bath oil, just to name a few.
We’ve posted some of their holiday 2018 best sellers below so be sure to check it out. Good luck and happy bargain hunting this Thanksgiving weekend!

Updated on Sunday, November 19, 2017: We’re sorry to disappoint but Lush Cosmetics has only one sale per year and that’s not on Black Friday – It’s the day after Christmas (also know as Boxing Day for those in Canada and UK). Why? We don’t know but that’s what they do. They never run any specials over Thanksgiving here in the States… At least they haven’t yet for the several year’s we’ve been tracking them, and we’re not expecting them to do anything special this Thanksgiving weekend either (obviously if that changes we’ll post an updated here on Blacker Friday!).
In terms of their After Christmas/Boxing Day sale, last year it started on December 26th at 9:00AM EST online and in stores at opening. And the deals were pretty good – They offered 50% off a number of products across the store (not everything was included but a lot of good stuff was). But you had to be quick because all the most popular items sold out within the first few hours in the morning.
With that said, we recommend that you signup to our newsletter as we’ll keep you up to date with any deals coming up now and beyond. And don’t forget to collect your Lush lids and redeem them for free face masks in-store.
If you’re hoping for a good deal on your favorite Lush cosmetics this upcoming Black Friday, like our favorites the Cupcake Fresh Face Mask and Honey I Washed The Kids Soap, then we’re sorry to say that it’s unlikely you’ll find anything in-store on sale current the Thanksgiving weekend. They usually have one big sale a year and that’s it – It usually happens the day after Christmas on Canada’s “Boxing Day”.
But, that doesn’t mean that they won’t email you on with a “Black Friday” newsletter if you’re signed up with them like we are – Because that’s exactly what hit our box moments ago. They want you to forget about shopping today and just focus on some R&R. We personally would love to, but hey, the best deals of the year are here and we can’t miss it. We’ve posted the copy of the email below for your enjoyment 🙂
If you plan on visiting a Lush store on Black Friday then doors will open at 8:00AM on Friday. They will be closed all day on Thursday so that their employees can spend Thanksgiving day with their family at home (we like that – No stores, except maybe some gas stations and a McDonald’s should be physically open on Thursday in our opinion).
