OMG Bart Shares His Best Black Friday & Cyber Monday Deals
  (Source:OMG Bart)

One of the internet's most enduring skinfluencers, OMG Bart has been combining his unparalleled knowledge of the beauty industry along with a healthy dose of his trademark snark for nearly 10 years. He is, in his own words, "partial to all things that tingle and foam, face masks, martinis (extra dry, up, with a twist)," male beauty blogger who "thirsts for the latest and greatest but is persuaded only by what works."

Over on his iconic blog this week, Bart shared his picks for the best for this year's best Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals.

"Gone are the days of waiting for the *actual* Friday after Thanksgiving, setting the alarm, plotting the haul, crossing your fingers that what you want hasn't sold out during some shady VIP pre-sale, and then celebrating each win as the FedEx and UPS boxes arrive, one by one," he wrote.

"The shopping madness is in full ON mode already. There are plenty of sales happening this week and the options to score your favorite self-care treats are seemingly endless. I'd like to keep this list very concise but will continue to update it since last minute pitches arrive daily. With that said, my focus will be on the truly tempting offers of 20% off and more. When has a 15% discount ever tempted anyone? Let's go!"
