With all due respect to Christmas, there's nothing quite like the overflowing cornucopia of deals that Black Friday brings. If you forgo the big box store madness, it's the ideal holiday: You eat an enormous, delicious meal, then browse from your couch on sales so good, they'll make your mouth water all over again. And while there are thousands of bounties to collect across the internet today, Amazon's beauty section is on fire.

According to the site's estimate, almost 2,000 products are on sale in the beauty category alone. That's more than even the most dedicated sale-seeking aunt can take in (not that they wouldn't try), so to make things a bit more digestible, we've gone through and highlighted the picks of the litter. Some highlights? If you're in the mood to give your skincare routine a refresh, Elemis' moisturizers come with glowing reviews from the likes of Kate Hudson, and Erno Laszlo's line, reportedly Marilyn Monroe's go-to, is likewise discounted.

Also among the hits is La Roche-Posay's Anthelios Melt-In Sunscreen, which both Kelly Ripa and Heidi Klum call a favorite. Blinc's smudge-proof tubing mascara is on sale alongside good-for-you Jane Iredale mineral makeup. Moving onto haircare, we'd be remiss not to highlight the fantastic savings on supermodel-approved Pureology, Redken, and Devacurl hair saviors. We won't keep you too long, though—especially since Black Friday sales are blink-and-you-miss-it competitive. Happy shopping, y'all!

Speaking as someone who reads beauty reviews all day long, the opinions on Elemis's Superfood Day Cream support that it is, indeed, super. "You can immediately see and feel the results," wrote one shopper, and another said that within a week, they noticed a "dramatic" change in their pore size. "I have mature, combination oily/dry skin, and this cream is perfect," added a third customer. "I think it's helped my fine lines, but more importantly, it helps my face look radiant and smooth. It absorbs quickly so I can begin applying my primer and makeup in no time."

It's rare, but every so often an exceptional beauty brand takes its expertise within one area, like skincare, and applies it to another, like makeup. So it goes for La Roche-Posay, which developed a winner with its Toleriane Extension Lengthening Mascara. Shoppers with sensitive eyes say it's the only formula that's gentle enough, and more write that they go out of their way to stock up on the lengthening mascara. "I've tested many mascaras over the years, and this is by far one of the best," wrote a fan. "It's the first mascara I've ever had that doesn't clump, goes on smoothly, and does a great job lengthening."

There are hundreds of nice shampoos on the market, but only a select few come with accolades from celebrities and shoppers alike. Taylor Swift and Katy Perry have turned to Pureology before walking the red carpet, and according to over 5,000 five-star ratings, it's great stuff. "Puts every other shampoo I've used to shame. I have been using this for a couple of years now, and it is the only one that makes my hair as soft and silky as I want," wrote one shopper with thick hair; another commented that it makes combing through their normally dry, tangle-prone hair feel like "brushing through butter." The analogy couldn't be more perfect for a Thanksgiving treat.

Have you ever walked into a nail salon and not seen OPI? The world would tilt on its axis. That's for good reason: The formulas reliably deliver even, streak-free coverage, and for Black Friday, a host of the brand's best-sellers are on sale. There are 18 gorgeous neutrals on sale in the brand's Infinite Shine line, along with nail primer, gloss, strengthening treatments, and a cuticle oil that will have your nails standing up to whatever challenge you throw at them—even Thanksgiving clean-up.
