10 Beauty Deals To Snag During The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

I live for a good sale. Not one to exactly embrace Christmas in July (like who came up with that but also why?), I stalk the Nordstrom website every summer when the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale rolls around. This year is no exception. From jumbo sizes of personal must-haves to configurations of some seriously tempting finds, the line up is yet again, quite impressive. Since the sale has been open to various tiers of Nordstrom card members for the last two weeks, I recommend you don’t wait too long before hitting ‘add to bag’ — some things are sadly already sold out. Looking at you Necessaire and Bobbi Brown. 

Chantecaille Rose Geranium Cleanser Duo

If you enjoy the kind of frothy face wash that makes your skin feel really squeaky clean, this Chantecaille formula is all about that very journey. Just a tiny amount creates rich later to remove every speck of grime while Rice Bran Extract gently exfoliates. I’m obsessed with it but those with drier skin types may want to find it a bit too intense. $90 ($128 value) for two 2.46 oz tubes

Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Cleanser

One of my all time favorite face washes is priced extra special during the sale. Nowhere near as exfoliating as the OG treatment (which is available in a jumbo size if you’re a fan), this multitasking cleanser removes dirt and excess oil while providing gentle resurfacing via a blend of Pumpkin, Papaya, and Pineapple Enzymes as well as Lactic and Glycolic Acids. Never leaves my skin dry and helps with the issue of congested pores without fail. $22.80 ($38 value) 4 oz

Lancer The Method Polish Exfoliator Set

This is why this set speaks to me: Polish is my favorite step of The Method protocol and this configuration includes all the travel size goodies you want to try. Not that we’re traveling anywhere just yet but the generously sized minis are a great way to discover another Lancer favorite. Side note: Polish combines slightly gritty (not too gritty) crystals with fruit enzymes for a dual action exfoliation that leaves my skin smooth, soft, and hydrated. $75 ($128 value) includes 4.2 oz Polish

Arcona Magic White Ice Jumbo

I could write sonnets about this Arcona product. Technically, Magic White Ice is a gel moisturizer but I’ve been using it as my hydrating serum for well over a decade. Borderline weightless, the liquigel is packed with Sodium Hyaluronate and antioxidant-rich Cranberry, White Tea, False Daisy, Lilac Leaf, and Apple Fruit Extracts. This deliciously smelling (all natural) potion makes my skin glass-like smooth year round. Stock up. $45 ($62 value) 1.7 oz bottle

First Aid Beauty Fab & Flawless

You guys, this one is so good. The description on the Nordstrom website is wrong however because you are getting a FULL SIZE tube of the surprisingly phenomenal Retinol Eye Cream. In other good news, absolutely everything in this thoughtfully edited set will come in handy as the outside temperatures begin to drop. These repairing and deeply moisturizing formulas are also fragrance-free making them suitable even for those with more sensitive skin types. $49 ($94 value)

Charlotte Tilbury Red Carpet Skin Secrets Set

Here’s the thing. If your skin leans more dry or you enjoy richer formulas as we’re about to get all in the PSL mood, this full-size Charlotte Tilbury trio will take care of your moisture and hydration needs from day to night. Technically, all you need is a cleanser to complete a pretty stellar routine. Personally, I prefer the Magic Cream Light, but the new Magic Serum Crystal Elixir is brilliant (we’re talking Vitamin C, Polyglutamic Acid, and 5% Niacinamide) so I say get the set, keep the serum, gift the rest to your mom. $149 ($204 value) 

FOREO LUNA™ 3 Combination Skin Facial Cleansing & Firming Massage Device

Now that Clarisonic abruptly exited the stage left earlier this summer, it’s a good time to explore the landscape of innovative gadgets by FOREO. This Swedish company held my interest since entering the beauty space with their first generation LUNA cleansing device. The LUNA 3 uses T-Sonic pulsations to elevate the basic task of face washing to a whole new level of clean. Make sure to flip the device and activate Firming Massage Mode after cleansing to help stimulate collagen production for even more youthful appearance. $133.33 ($199 value) also available in Sensitive and Normal skin designs

Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Alpha Beta® Extra Strength Daily Peel Set

Every Alpha Beta Peel addict knows that once a year, we can stock up on an incredible value of this skin transforming two-step system. The Extra Strength formula is now available in a duo of 60 and 30 applications alongside a travel-size Alpha Beta Pore Perfecting Cleansing Gel. Speaking from experience, the Extra Strength is too potent for me to use daily so if used just a couple of times a week, this set will last you months. $160 ($252 value) 60ct + 30ct + 2 oz cleanser

Mario Badescu The Essentials Set

Real talk: you will need every piece in this trio at one time or another. The Facial Spray is super refreshing and provides plenty of TLC to my skin during this mask-wearing everyday routine. You will be glad to have the Drying Lotion on hand when that unexpected pimple shows up out of nowhere and if you’re shopping this beauty sale, let’s be honest — you go nowhere without a tube of lip balm. $23 ($33 value) 

Oribe Magic Set

I was right there with you prejudging the Oribe range based on their rather hefty prices. Then I tried the Dry Texturizing Spray and nothing has been the same since. The Magic Set is exclusive to Nordstrom and includes a full-size duo of this very gem paired with the iconic Gold Lust Dry Shampoo. When it comes to styling and re-styling your hair, this power couple does it all. Not trying to cause panic but this deal is too good to ignore and will sell out quickly. $64 ($96 value)

The sale ends August 30th.
