As Memorial Day has come and gone, we’ve stopped updating this post with sales and can’t promise the ones below are still available. Check back later this year for updated deals.

Memorial Day came and went! And since the holiday weekend signifies the unofficial start of summer, you can now start planning all your relaxing beach days, sunny road trips, and weekend brunches to come. But in addition to enjoying the long relaxing weekend off, beauty and wellness brands of all kinds are still celebrating with major discounts on some of our favorite products.

What is Memorial Day?

In addition to being one of the biggest sale weekends of the year, Memorial Day is a federal holiday that honors all those who have served our country in the military—both past and present. It always falls on the last Monday in May and marks the unofficial start of summer.

When is Memorial Day 2021? 

This year, Memorial Day falls on Monday, May 31, 2021.

When Do Memorial Day Sales Start in 2021? 

Most beauty sales generally start a few days before the actual holiday, so plan to start shopping as early as May 28.

What’s even better? MDW’s major markdowns aren’t limited to any one category. 

What is Usually on Sale for Memorial Day?

  • Skincare: Whether it’s that pricey serum you’ve been eyeing, or a restock on retinol—now’s the time to take the plunge. 
  • Body & Personal Care: Splurge on products you can use head-to-toe, from body wash and foot cream to nail polish. 
  • Makeup: PSA, beauty product expiration dates are a very real thing, cosmetics included. Whether that mascara has been sitting in the back of your medicine cabinet for far too long, or you're craving some new beauty, Memorial Day is a great time to swap out the old for the new.
  • Haircare: Shop everything from blow dryers to your favorite shampoo at a fraction of the price. And don’t forget, your hair and scalp need sun protection, too! 

“With this change in season and weather, it's always a good idea to switch up your beauty and skincare routine to ensure you’re protecting your skin barrier as the heat begins to creep in,” says Alexia Wambua, founder of Native Atlas. “Memorial Day Weekend is a great time to stock up on beauty and skincare products designed for the hotter months.”
