They might not front of mind when it comes to shopping on Amazon, but Prime Day beauty deals are often a brilliant way to save money on very popular, very premium beauty products.
We'll admit, we're newbies when it comes to the treasure trove of Prime Day beauty deals on offer, but now are wondering how we lasted so long without them. Amazon’s Prime Day event might be known for its mega-discounts on electronics, but there are some unbelievable savings on beauty to be snapped up, too. Amazon Prime Day is basically a 48-hour shopping extravaganza and knowing where to start can be slightly overwhelming. There are over 13,000 Prime Day beauty deals on the site... so you'll be pleased to hear we've already picked the best! These are the Prime Day beauty deals the w&h team have our eyes on.
Whether you want to fill your beauty boots with classic high street brands in one fell swoop and make a mega saving, or invest in a premium product with a hefty discount, you are in the right place. From big savings on the best hair dryers and straighteners, to cult brands like Elizabeth Arden and Elemis dropping their prices by a huge 50%, if you're a beauty enthusiast this is big. And while Amazon may have extended their offering to two days instead of one, some of the most popular beauty bargains are starting to sell out.
You’ll need a Prime membership to take advantage of these amazing deals though – so make sure that you sign up for a free, 30-day trail with Amazon now.

How to spot a genuinely good Prime Day beauty deal
It's not always about how much you'll save! A product with a cult following or great reviews with any kind of a save is a bonus and if it's a high percentage, even better. While a saving of £10, £5 or even £2 may not seem much, popping all your regular essentials in your virtual basket will soon result in some big savings. In other words, if you're thinking of stocking up, now is a good time.
Beauty products can range from anything from less than £1 to hundreds, even thousands. To know if you're getting a good deal, get clued up on how much products from that beauty range usually cost. We've made it easy by telling you in brackets the saving in monetary value. Big beauty sales aren't quite as prominent or regular as fashion sales, so take advantage of these deals while you can. When it comes to high end designer brands like Dior and Chanel, sales are often few and far between, but there are many luxury brands, like failsafe makeup champion stila and luxe tanning brand Vita Liberata on offer.
Brands to lookout for in the Prime Day beauty deals section
This year, there are some real stand-out brands in the Prime Day sale including the GHD hot brush – which is reduced today from £139 to £93.99. And the now extremely affordable Remington Shine Therapy Advanced Ceramic Hair Straighteners, which were £79.99, now £20.99 (save £59).
But it's not just about electrical items today and tomorrow. Skincare is also another area that's offering some fantastic deals. A few favourites include the L'Oreal Paris Revitalift Anti Wrinkle + Firming Pro Retinol Eye Cream, which was £8.54, and is now £11.49. Cult classic, the Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm was £43, and is now £30.10 (this luxurious cleansing balm also doubles up as a hydrating mask, if you leave the product on overnight).
It's also a great time to stock up on essentials from your favourite beauty brands. Some of our favourite make-up brands are also seeing discounts with deals from Maybelline,Eyelure, and L’Oreal.
