Deciem believes that hyper-consumerism hurts the planet, and that flash sales don't do customers any good because they lead to "rushed purchasing decisions, driven by the fear of a sell-out." So rather than participating in Black Friday on November 27, the company's website and retail stores shut down for the day. Instead, you'll find an automatic 23-percent discount (no coupon code needed!) applied to every product until November 30 at 11:59 p.m. ET.
"We strongly believe that skincare decisions should be based on education rather than impulse, and hope that a month-long promotion will provide the time for research, reflection, and consideration," the company wrote on Instagram.
