Liaison has always been one of our favorite brands for lash, brow, and hair products, specifally for growth and conditioning. Their Lash Bond Serum helps lashes grow longer and look healthier in a matter of weeks. They also offer a Mascara Bond which allows for further growth during the day. We also love their Haid Bond, a simple spray to help conditon hair and reduce the appearance of thinning, patchy spots.

Medik8 offers some great products for the skin and hair. If you're looking for strong creams, retinol, and balms, they have some really well curated products. We put this last as we think The Glow Fairy offers some similar products for a better deal. However, it's always nice to have options. They'll be offering 30% off sitewide starting November 20th until November 29th.
To give you better insight as to why we chose The Glow Fairy as our top Black Friday brand, we wanted to talk further with our investigative reporter Stephanie Marianne who helped create the rankings list and how The Glow Fairy's top product, Retinol Glow Wand worked for her. Stephanie tells the story.
Personally, I never believed in the effectiveness of anti-wrinkle anything. “Time cannot be reversed,” I used to tell my friend. I’ve had too many friends tricked into buying some wild cream just to find out it’s a waste of money. So I’ve avoided it at all costs.
But then my best friend, who I trust with my life, swore by The Glow Fairy Retinol Glow Wand. She would swipe it on every night before she went to bed. After a few weeks her skin looked tighter and her fine lines were greatly reduced. I, of course, didn’t believe her. But then she showed me a before and after. I was stunned. Week by week the fine lines and wrinkles became less noticeable all together! I begged her to let me borrow her Glow Wand. Instead she gave me a Black Friday 50% off discount code BF50, and I ordered my own Glow Wand immediately.
I received a package in the next few days and applied that night. The application is super simple, just open the Glow Wand and swipe it on! LOL, but actually, for best effectiveness, make sure your face is clean and dry. Do your nightly routine and leave the Glow Wand for last. Warm up the balm a little by rubbing onto your finger or the edge of your eye for an easier swipe. Then, apply the balm around the eye, on the sides and under. You can also apply to laugh lines, and even around the brow at the T-zone. Leave it on over night and viola!
I, of course, expected results immediately. But it will take a few weeks to see the real results (so I made sure to snap a few before photos). While I waited, I ended up doing a little research on the ingredients that go into the Glow Wand and found the retinol wasn’t the only thing helping my fine lines disappear…
Of course, there’s retinol, which helps neutralize free radicals in the skin and encourage the production of collagen. The rich source of vitamin A is so effective in helping boost collagen that it’s almost the only ingredient needed. But Glow Fairy did an amazing thing of adding the extra punches with some of these other ingredients…
Another amazing ingredient that’s naturally found in the body. Hyaluronic Acid is used by the body to retain water in the skin. And, as we know, moisture and hydration is essential to healthy, ageless looking skin. That’s why Hyaluronic Acid is so popular in beauty products.
Not many people are aware of how amazing this ingredient is for your skin. It helps remove dead skin cells from the skin to reveal the soft, more youthful tissue underneath. So when you’re looking for that more youthful glow, it’s not retinol doing the work. It’s Allantoin.
Allantoin with a combination of this ingredient, stearic acid, is your ultimate duo for cleaning the skin and giving you that extra glow. While allantoin removes dead skin cells, stearic acid, removes excess oil and dirt that regular cleansers can’t get to. Really awesome stuff!
The last ingredient I was so happy to see in the Glow Wand was beeswax. A lot of retinol creams forget that too much retinol can damage the skin but making it very sensitive. You need something to protect against that. Buzz buzz buzz hello beeswax! Beeswax is a natural protector, it creates an antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti-viral barrier that will help keep your skin safe!
So, finally, after 4 weeks, I decided to check if I could see results… and wow! The area around my eyes was more youthful and glowing, and some fine lines that I was concerned about were totally gone. I was blown away!
I was converted into a Glow Wand believer! I hope you will, too!
