Read on to discover all the info you need ahead of the holidays, followed by some of the very best Black Friday wellness deals. We’re also keeping an eye on all of the best Black Friday deals, including beauty deals, fitness deals, clothing deals, and mattress deals.
When is Black Friday 2022?
Black Friday is on Friday, November 25. While traditionally Black Friday was a chaos-filled brick-and-mortar shopping extravaganza, online and hybrid retailers have been leading the charge in recent years, starting sales before you even consider your holiday gift list. And while it might seem far too soon to think about Cyber Monday, we’ve seen sizable shipping delays in recent years, so it might be less stressful and more fun to shop early.
The best wellness deals you can shop right now
The Black Friday wellness deals of 2022 are just starting to ramp up, with tons more on the way, which we’ll be keeping a close eye on. So far, though, big retailers like Nordstrom and Amazon have the largest markdowns on wellness products from brands like Apple, 23andMe, and Herbivore. There are lots of fitness-adjacent sales too, on exercise bikes, accessories, and activewear from Lululemon, Therabody, and Girlfriend Collective.
Amazon is always a treasure trove for deals, but right now even more so. The megaretailer is rolling out its pre-Black Friday Amazon deals every day. Heck, more like every hour. Wellness products galore line the deals pages, including Ninja blenders for all of your smoothies, 23andMe kits, Crest Whitestrips, and fitness trackers from Fitbit and sleep products.

Similar to Amazon and Target, Walmart is offering its early Black Friday deals on a rolling basis. From exercise equipment to toys, you can find a breadth of items on markdown right now. As far as wellness goes, Fitbit and Apple have the best deals so far, but we’re definitely keeping an eye on more price cuts to come.
Lululemon’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales last year were pretty stellar, considering there were hundreds and hundreds of items more than 40%, including leggings, sports bras, and other wellness accessories. The brand hasn’t said much about its Black Friday plans for 2022, but its secret “We Made Too Much” sale section is full of best-selling fitness gear, from thick yoga mats for your mindfulness and meditation practice to the ever-popular Align leggings.
Nordstrom is offering quite a few early Black Friday deals in its always-packed sale section. Its holiday deals include sweet Le Creuset kettle and mug sets to Herbivore’s bath salts and soak set, your wellness routine can easily get an upgrade for a lower price. Last year, Nordstrom offered up to 50% off thousands of items, like activewear, essential oil diffusers, skin care products, recovery equipment, and more—so we’re expecting more of the same once the retailer formally announces its Cyber Week deals.

Fine bedding and home decor brand Parachute knows you deserve to feel as cozy out of bed as you do when you hit the hay—which is why its snuggly waffle pajama sets and slouchy socks are among its sale items ahead of the holidays. For even more savings, the brand is offering 20% off sitewide from November 21 through November 28.
Therabody, the maker of the iconic percussive Theragun massage gun, has a few recovery items on sale before Black Friday kicks off, including the hardworking Theragun Pro and the ultra-portable (and still powerful) Theragun Mini. Though the brand hasn’t announced the details of its Black Friday and Cyber Monday offerings, we imagine it’ll be just as sweet (if not sweeter) than last year, when it offered up to $200 off its suite of workout recovery products.
If you’re looking for Black Friday skin care deals, we love Dermstore’s one stop shop for all of our derm-recommended cleansers, serums, and toners, as well as its hair care products, beauty tools, and more. We’re counting down the days until we can score major deals. From November 19 through the 29th, you can save up to 30% on over 200 must-have brands (including Briogeo, bareMinerals, Dr. Dennis Gross, Naturopathica, and Slip) and earn double rewards points on select top brands. Can’t wait? The sale section has a few hidden gems, including ice globes and Slip’s bestselling silk eye mask.
From November 19 through December 9, Girlfriend Collective’s comfortable activewear, loungewear, and accessories are 35% off, with additional markdowns on sale items, outerwear, swim, sleep, and more. There are plenty of pre-Black Friday items on sale, too. You’ll find high-quality workout sets that you can match or mismatch. We’re eyeing the cushy ReSlides, lightweight leggings, and other great workout clothes.
When it comes to menstrual care, opting for leakproof period underwear may be a sustainable and overall more affordable alternative to pads and tampons. Thinx is one of the most popular options, and ahead of Cyber Week, you can stock up for less. From November 23 through November 28, the brand is offering up to 50% off Thinx and Speax styles. If you can’t wait (us either!), select pieces are on sale now in its Last Calle Sale, from marked down leakproof leggings and workout-ready period underwear.
Sexual wellness is important too, and thankfully brands typically have excellent deals for the holidays. Lelo is currently having an early access Black Friday sale. You can shop for a high-quality sex toy at a budget-friendly price. We spotted the Sona 2, a highly-rated oral sex toy, and the F1S V2, a masturbator that is a highly-recommended sex toy for men.
Another one of our favorite sexual health brands is MysteryVibe. From November 17 through the 30th, MysteryVibe is offering up to 30% off their popular sex toys. Until then, the sale section is stocked up with some of the site’s bestsellers, like the bendable Poco G-spot vibrator and the Crescendo 2, which offers stimulation for the clitoris, G-spot, and P-spot.
Acupuncture, cupping, and Traditional Chinese Medicine brand WTHN is known for its in-studio treatments and at-home holistic remedies. From supplements to ear seeds to skin care products, you can find all the alternative wellness essentials you need for your holiday shopping. As far as its Black Friday sale goes, from November 21 through the 28th, save 25% off both in-studio and online, excluding body cups and bundles.
