Best Black Friday Deals: Tried & Tested by Yahoo UK's Shopping Team

John Lewis / Yahoo Life UK

Working from home typically consists of pyjamas or tracksuit bottoms and a cosy jumper, but not anymore. This two-piece loungewear set from John Lewis (now reduced to £18.70) is *so* comfortable, it has shoppers buying multiple. 

Comprised of a long sleeved top and trousers, which have a thick, elasticated waistband and small pockets either side, the ensemble is made from a super soft jersey that's easy to wear, doesn't bobble and dries quickly.

You can currently save £70 off the hugely popular air fryer, which is the cheapest we've seen it all year. The deal is so popular it has already sold out at Ninja, Amazon and Currys, but has just come back in stock at John Lewis.

This kitchen superstar has six cooking functions – Air Fry, Max Crisp, Roast, Bake, Reheat and Dehydrate – which means you can cook everything from roast potatoes to chicken; you can bring last night's pizza back to life; or you can even make dried fruit, vegetable crisps and beef jerky.

Retinol is a skincare ingredient that packs a punch. It's one of the most efficient tools for treating acne, texture, pigmentation, pore size and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Despite its brilliant benefits, the ingredient — derived from Vitamin A — is not one you want to slather on your skin twice a day. Due to its potency, side effects such as temporary dryness and sensitivity can occur.

But one retinol that's proven to work wonders is Medik8's Crystal Retinal 1 Stable Retinal Night Serum

Both fast-acting and hydrating, it's quick to improve texture and combat hormonal acne, and is on sale right now for Black Friday.
