Cyber Monday is here, marking the end of Black Friday – the biggest shopping event of the year. So far we’ve seen prices slashed across tech, home appliances, TVs, laptops, fashion and much more. And, as always, plenty of major retailers have taken part, from John Lewis & Partners and Amazon to Very and Argos.
This year, Boots was the first major retailer to kick off its Black Friday event – from 1 November online. In all, Black Friday at Boots saw prices cut on more than 14,000 products, across more categories than ever before.

At such an incredible price, this is well worth snapping up while it’s still in stock.
Estée Lauder advanced night repair serum synchronized multi-recovery complex: Was £82, now £65.60, Boots.com
Now is a good time to stock up on the UK’s bestselling serum. It is such a firm favourite at IndyBest, we devoted a full article to investigating the formula. Our tester simply loved it, saying: “After a few days’ use, our skin was noticeably brighter, less red and more even in tone, and better held moisture throughout the day. In short, it looks like you’ve had a really good night’s sleep, even when you haven’t.”
Braun silk-expert pro 5 PL5124 latest generation IPL permanent visible hair removal: Was £600, now £249.99, Boots.com
If you’re looking to make the leap from regular hair removal to laser treatment, this clever device from Braun is apparently the brand’s fastest and most effective yet, claiming a visible reduction in the treated area for up to six months. Home laser devices have skyrocketed since lockdown and its easy to see why – less hassle of regular clinic appointments, and you can treat your desired areas more frequently and effectively. This model is smaller and lighter than Braun’s previous offerings, and features IPL technology credited as ‘skin safe’ by the Skin Health Alliance, plus it continuously adapts to skin tones to ensure those follicles are getting adequately zapped. It also has a precision head for tricky areas like the bikini line, upper lip and underarms.
Braun states that this device can treat lower legs in five minutes flat, which is pretty impressive. What’s more it comes with a Gillette Venus razor so you can shave and prep the area you’re about to treat. And with a whopping 50 per cent saving of over £300 there’s never been a better time to snap up one of these gadgets.
Fitbit sense lunar white: Was £279.99, now £189.99, Boots.com
Save £90 on this Fitbit sense lunar white, complete with high and low heart rate notifications, personalised health and guidance, EDA scan that detects electrodermal activity to stress and an impressive battery life that lasts 6+ days. In our full review our tester raved about the health device saying: “The Fitbit Sense offers such in-depth monitoring and advanced personal support that it’s worth the extra money.”
Pixi brighter days ahead!: Was £68, now £34, Boots.com
Pixi, with its cute packaging, gorgeous-smelling products and high-quality ingredients, has long been a staple in the beauty world. This brighter days ahead set includes a vitamin C tonic, vitamin C wake up mist, vitamin C sheet masks, and vitamin C lotion. We know Pixi has got it down to a T when it comes to getting that glow on, so it’s no wonder that we featured its glow tonic in our round-up of the best exfoliating toners with our reviewer saying it left skin “brighter, nourished and, yes, glowing.”
Oral-B pro 3 3000 black electric crossaction ultrathin toothbrush: Was £90, now £40, Boots.com
Save a whopping £50 on this electric toothbrush from the pros at Oral-B. If the money you’ll save isn’t enough to convince you, it also has a number of impressive features, including pressure control that visibly alerts you if you brush too hard, three brushing modes – daily clean, whitening and sensitive – and a battery that lasts more than two weeks with just one charge.
CeraVe moisturising cream, 454g: Was £16, now £12, Boots.com
Since it arrived on UK shores, CeraVe has earned itself cult status among skincare fans, and now you can save 25 per cent on its moisturising cream. Featuring in our round-up of the best CeraVe products, our reviewer said: “This is your classic body cream, rich and thick but doesn’t look or feel greasy. It’s fragrance-free, like all of CeraVe’s products, so does lack a little in luxury, but makes up for it with its fast-acting formula to improve areas of dry skin, especially on legs post-shaving, elbows and knees.” Our reviewer was also happy to report it worked a treat on patches of eczema, too.
Philips lumea prestige IPL hair removal device BRI1949/00: Was £449, now £280, Boots.com
If you’re looking to target unwanted body and face hair but you’re tired of shaving, this Philips IPL machine could be up your street. It’s certainly an investment purchase, but the current price reduction makes a big difference. The device has a curved design created for effective use, and includes separate attachments to cover different body areas including the underarm and bikini line. A similar Philips model featured in our best IPL and hair removers review, where our tester said: “you simply glide the device over the skin you want to treat, smoothly and quickly.” Sounds good to us.

We love Bobbi Brown here at IndyBest, with the brand featuring in many of our beauty round-ups. This good-value set is a great way to try products without spending lots of money. It includes a mini version of the vitamin-enriched face base, and three full-sized products too, featuring a pot of rouge for lips and cheeks in powder pink, the smokey eye mascara as well as a long-wear cream shadow stick in golden bronze. The shadow stick won itself a place in our round-up of the best eyeshadow sticks for quick and effortless make-up, and the mascara was the “best for staying in place all day” in our review of the best mascaras.
Waterpik cordless plus water flosser wp-450uk: Was £55, now £29.99, Boots.com
Water flossers are becoming more and more popular due to their ability to blast away plaque and debris between teeth and under the gums, reaching every nook and cranny, as opposed to floss which, lets face it, can be a little grim. This handy cordless version has two different pressures – one for deep cleaning and one for sensitive teeth – as well as a tongue cleaner to leave your mouth feeling fresh.
Estée Lauder treat yourself gift set: Was £90, now £45, Boots.com
The concept of “treating yourself” is epitomised in this gorgeous gift set from Estée Lauder, which now has 50 per cent off.

Revlon one-step hair dryer and volumiser: Was £69.99, now £46.66, Boots.com
The TikTok-famous hair tool, which is essentially a hairbrush and hairdryer in one, has been reduced by £23.33 in Boots’s Black Friday sale. In our review of the Revlon volumiser brush, our tester said the heat and styling were both spot on, adding that it helped to “dry, detangle and style” their locks. Styling hair with ease, they said it is a “worthy investment” that gives you a “salon-worthy blow-dry at an affordable price”.
YSL touche éclat illuminating pen: Was £27, now £17, Boots.com
This pen has a beautiful sheer finish and gives you that “lit from within” look – the brand says it’s like “eight hours of sleep in just one click”. This signature YSL product is now only £27, so stock up while you can.

If you’re toy-curious, Boots’ Black Friday sale is a great opportunity to test the waters with this Lovehoney mini vibrator that’s been reduced by £10.

It’s also 100 per cent waterproof and can be charged via USB.

The perfect perfume to kick off party season or spoil someone special come Christmas Day, you can now snap this up with a 20 per cent reduction. The coffee note in this adds a caffeine buzz to the dreamy escapism of YSL’s original opium scent, with voluptuous notes of orange blossom and soft musks.
Remington the works hair clipper gift pack: Was £49.99, now £19.99, Boots.com
Whether you’ve taken to DIY hairdressing or need a new tool to ensure your beard is always looking its best, consider this clipper gift pack, which is now an incredible 60% off.

Oral-B iO8 electric toothbrush, violet ametrine with limited edition travel case: Was £450, now £150, Boots.com
A leading brand in dental care, Oral-B does toothbrushes very well, and this iO8 model sounds like an impressive, high-spec option for those who are serious about their gnashers. The toothbrush uses artificial intelligence that helps guide you to any areas you may be missing while brushing, to give you that professional clean feeling. If that's not enough, it has a unique round brush head that delivers gentle micro-vibrations which makes for healthier gums, according to Oral-B. Right now, Boots is offering a range of Oral-B brushes for better than half price, so even if you can’t justify the £150 price tag here, the genius X is down to just £90 (was £300, Boots.com).
What is Cyber Monday?
The Monday following Black Friday has come to be known as Cyber Monday and is the last day of the sales. It’s named as such because historically, pre-Christmas online sales peaked on this day.
Now, the day is a sales event in its own right, with retailers continuing to slash prices throughout the Monday. So it’s the perfect opportunity to bag a bargain if you missed out on anything over the weekend. It’s also the last mass sale event until January.
