Early Black Friday Deals for Afro-Latinas
As an Afro-Latina it can feel so liberating to celebrate the different aspects of my identity by expressing it through my clothing and hair. Experiencing both African-American and Latino cultures in America gives you permission to experiment with different modes of physical expression, beauty routines, and cultural traditions that come with being both black and Latina.
Shopping for products that elevate every aspect of our beautiful, individual, Afro-Latina experiences is, for us, another way to validate who we are. So in celebration of Afro-Latinas everywhere treating themselves this Holiday season, we’ve rounded up some incredible Early Black Friday deals specifically for Afro-Latinas. Get your wardrobe, haircare, beauty, skincare, and home needs all in one place, below!
Lord & TaylorLord & Taylor
Out of the countless early Black Friday deals we came across, one of our favorites has to be Lord and Taylor’s–specifically, because it houses the clothing line of our favorite Afro-Latina Boricua, Lala Anthony. According to Lord & Taylor’s website, you can get up to 40% off their items during their Pre-Black Friday sale. All you have to do is use the code DEALS at checkout. As for us, we’re particularly excited about Anthony’s Puerto Rico relief tee, where 100% of the t-profits will be donated to the charity Unidos Por Puerto Rico. But you’ll have to hurry! The sale ends November 17th. Head over here to start shopping.
Neutrogena Light Therapy Acne Treatment Face MaskWalmart
Naturally, some of the best pre-Black Friday deals can be found at Walmart. This includes the Neutrogena Light Therapy Acne Treatment Face Mask. This innovative skincare technology is perfect for Afro-Latinas who suffer from acne-prone skin and hyper-pigmentation. According to Neutrogena, the light mask works by using Blue and Red LED. The blue lights kill acne-causing bacteria while the red lights have anti-inflammatory properties. Usually, this mask will run you around $35, but Walmart is currently offering it at $29.97. You can head over to Walmart.com to snatch this deal up before it expires!
Argan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner by Majestic PureAmazon
Any Afro-Latina who has done a deep-dive into the science of natural hair care knows that Argan Oil is practically a magic ingredient. Amazon is offering 62% off their sulfate and cruelty-free Argan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner by Majestic Pure. That means that the duo–which is usually listed as $52–is now on sale for $19.98. Not only does these hair products contain hydrating and strengthening organic Argan Oil, they also contain Avocado Oil, Jojoba Oil, Almond Oil and Coconut Oil. Now that’s a powerful mix. Head over to Amazon to stock up on this product before they run out!
Biotin Gummies by Mr. GummyAmazon
While we’re on the topic of hair care (and let’s be honest, when are we not?), why not commit to nourishing your strands from the inside out? The perfect way to do this is through biotin supplements. And not just any vitamins, but gummies. Usually listed on Amazon at $34.69, these Mr. Gummy Biotin Supplements are now on a special Black Friday sale of $19.29. That’s a 44% discount! What makes this biotin product better than the run-of-the-mill gummy vitamin is that it’s gluten, soy, dairy, gelatin and allergen-free. It also only contains natural colors and flavors. So you can treat yourself without any fear of toxic additives. You can buy it here.
Ancestry.com DNA-Testing Kitancestry.com
Have you ever wondered the story behind your unique features and mixed family history? If you’ve always wanted to know your ethnic makeup, but the price tag of an at-home DNA-testing kit kept you away, then today’s your lucky day. Ancestry.com is offering a pre-Black Friday deal of 40% off their DNA kit. This deal is especially pertinent to Afro-Latinas of mixed descent who want a more in-depth peak into their family history (as opposed to your abuela’s tall tales). That means you’d only be paying $59 instead of ancestry.com’s usual $99 price. You can buy your own DNA kit here for the discounted price anytime before November 21st.
Pink Himalayan Salt Body ScrubAmazon
Another product of Majestic Pure cosmetics, this item is perfect for the Afro-Latina with dull skin and/or uneven skin tone. Like so many other brown and black women in Latinidad, we love to keep our melanin on fleek by regularly exfoliating. There’s no better way to experience a good deep scrub than by using this mineral-rich Pink Himalayan Salt scrub. This scrub is made with ultra-hydrating sweet almond oil and infused with protective Lychee Essential Oil. Usually $28, this body scrub is a full 50% off as part of Amazon’s Early Black Friday deals. You can buy a 10oz tub here.
New York & Co
As Afro-Latinas, we’re already huge fans of New York & Co because of their successful (not to mention, lucrative) collaborations with fierce women of color, Gabrielle Union and Eva Mendes. That makes us especially excited to hear that their entire stock is currently 50% off as part of their Pre-Black Friday Sale. No exclusions! We can’t wait to mix and match pieces from both Mendes’ and Union’s collections to create the perfect, personalized Afro-Latina outfit. Check out the sale here.
Chloe Perfume at Walmart
Perfume is one of those beauty decisions that can define the vibe you give off as well as establish the way you feel about yourself that day, depending on the scent. It’s also one of those purchases that has the power to break the bank, because a good perfume isn’t cheap. Or isn’t it? You’re in luck because at the moment, Walmart is offering an unbeatable Black Friday deal from the famous French fashion house, Chloe. Chloe Eau de Parfum, which currently retails at $105 at Sephora, is on sale for $66. That means you can be chic and frugal! Buy it here.
Cellulite Treatment OilAmazon
Although we love every inch of our curves, we do admit that we could do with a little less stubborn cellulite on occasion. Pure Body Natural’s one of Amazon’s fan favorites, Pure Body Naturals is offering a 24% discount on the highly-rated Cellulite Treatment Massage Oil. This massage oil works to loosen the tissue of your especially dimply areas to appear smoother and more toned. As one Amazon review raves: “The cellulite on my thighs and legs look reduced and toned. Even if it is just the appearance..I’ll take it!”. Buy it here before the sale ends!
Online Courses at UdemyUdemy
This deal is perfect for the Afro-Latina that needs to brush up on her Spanish skills before spending Thanksgiving with her judgmental tías (we all have them). While most courses at Udemy usually cost $99, their Black Friday blowout sale allows you to purchase any course for $9.99! And Spanish isn’t the only skill you can acquire through Udemy; they also have courses on website-building, photography, and even “ethical hacking.“And the best part of it all? No student loan required. Browse their course catalog here.
Give your lashes a break from the damaging extensions and grow them sky-high yourself! The cult-favorite magical eyelash-growing serum, Rapidlash is discounted 53% with Amazon’s Pre-Black Friday Sale. So, instead of spending $50 on the growth serum, you’ll only be spending $22.95. With almost 1,000 5-star reviews, one customer raves that she has “longer lashes than if [she] had extensions”. That mean’s it’s worth every penny. Buy it here.
If you’ve been holding out on buying the life-changing skincare device that is a Clarisonic because of the price tag, then hold out no further! Amazon is offering a 15% discount on the face brush that Essence magazine calls a “miracle worker”. With black skin more prone to hyper-pigmentation caused by surface bacteria, it’s especially important to keep the surface as clean as possible to avoid the build up of acne-causing bacteria. A deep clean by a Clarisonic can help with that. Buy it here in three different colors.
Remington Ionic Conditioning Hair SetterWalmart
Although we love our curls just as much as the next natural Afro-Latina, sometimes, we like to bust out the hot rollers to get a looser curl without the damage of a curling iron. Luckily, Walmart has a Pre-Black Friday sale going on with their Remington Ionic Conditioning Hair Setters. Usually $24, this hair rolling set is now only $14.86. According to the product’s description, the wax core of the curlers “allows the roller to retain high heat longer and create long lasting curls and volume”. Buy it here.

Retinol Moisturizer Cream by Radha BeautyAmazon
Like many Afro-Latinas, we can’t get enough of a good deal on high-quality skin care products.

That’s why you can’t pass up this Retinol Moisturizes by Radha beauty that’s been marked down to $18.95.
