Amazon plans to hold a pre-Black Friday beauty sales event, the Holiday Beauty Haul, in October, and it promises to include fragrances, men’s grooming items, winter skincare and more. Reports say that it’ll go from Oct. 4 and through Oct. 25. 

Backlogged cargo ships are reportedly leading to a sluggish national supply chain,  so it may be smart to start holiday shopping now. This sale will be an opportunity to score major deals before Black Friday. Beauty is one of the fastest-growing categories on Amazon, ranging from haircare, skincare and nail care to makeup, fragrances and more. Amazon allows you to filter for premium beauty, climate-pledge-friendly items, clean beauty and even products with frustration-free packaging.  

If you don’t feel like waiting for the Amazon beauty sale to start, the e-tailer and other beauty brands already have deals worth snatching up now. Find some of the highlights ahead.
