Retailers are polishing up their Black Friday bargains on popular beauty and skincare lines, says.

Most makeup and perfume retailers will offer extra or deluxe samples with any order, but you may need to sniff out a coupon code or visit a specific online page to take advantage of some offers, says the bargain-scouring website and Money Talks News partner.

Classic deals, it expects, include a $10 sale at Sephora, a 3 for $33 sale at The Body Shop and a buy-three-get-three offer at Bath & Body Works.

Pair those discounts with offers for stuffed tote bags from Bath & Body Works and The Body Shop, and you’ll score a year’s worth of skincare in one haul, the site says. Merchants vary, but typically you’ll need to make a minimum purchase of $25 so you can purchase a tote bag full of goodies for at least another $25.

“The tote bag will contain around $100 to $200 worth of products, so it’s worth every penny,” DealNews says.

For men, high-end shavers from Norelco and Panasonic will start at $105 at Amazon and Target; beard trimmers, $5.

Look to Amazon for coupons to bring the price of drugstore brand cosmetics, like CoverGirl, to zero, which it did last year, DealNews says.

Come Cyber Monday, better makeup deals will be available, including discounts on brands like Clinique, it says. Perfume sites, such as Perfumania, will offer sitewide coupons for 25 to 30 percent off.

Look for free shipping on many items for no or low minimum purchases.
