It’s that time of year again. Some people call it Christmas in July, I call it Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Admittedly, this year is going to be a bit of a challenge. While outside is opening back up, life is not necessarily back to normal. Most of us are still working from home for a few more months or we’ve transitioned fully to working from home (shout out to the companies who have made this a seamless transition). The Nordstrom Anniversary sale officially starts on July 28th, but you can still preview the sale and even shop if you are a Nordstrom card member you can shop the sale now.
Usually, I gravitate to Fall fashion during this sale but since I technically didn’t wear most of my Fall wardrobe last year, I’m going to focus on skincare, body care. I was actually quite surprised at all the beauty deals that will be going on during sale. If you are a beauty enthusiast like myself, you’re going to really this year’s picks. If there’s one thing that last year reminded us, it’s that self-care should be a part of our everyday life and that includes hair, skin and body. Here are my picks from the beauty category that are not only cult faves but at a truly unbeatable price.
Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum Bundle
If you don’t get anything in beauty from the sale, you should at the very least get this. I don’t think I need to go into detail as to how effective this serum is when used regularly, but trust me when I say the results are long lasting. Firms, nourishes and hydrates and now you’re getting basically double the amount of product for the price of one full-sized product. The three mini sizes are perfect for long vacations, weekend getaways or overnight stays. I am so floored by the price that it would be a miss on my part not to get it.
Bobbi Brown Face Base Primer Set
More than just a primer, this OG primer/moisturizer hybrid has stood the test of time. This smooths, plumps and moisturizes skin while prepping it for makeup. If you’ve ever been on the fence about getting this, now would be the time to pull the trigger. In addition to getting twice the amount of product for the cost of one they are also throwing in a mini Eye Base to prep the under eye area and nourish that delicate skin.
Nécessaire Body Wash & Body Lotion Set
Since we’ve been inside for over a year now, I’ve been really taking the time out to thoroughly care for the skin below my décolletage and I’ve heard so much about Nécessaire that when I came across this set, I decided it was time to give it a try. During the event, there will be a set that includes their full-sized fragrance-free body wash and body lotion. Both are packed with fatty acids, vitamin C & E and niacin amide (my fave). I cannot wait to give them a try.
ghd Platinum 1-inch Styler
If you use heat tools to straighten or curl your hair, then this is the tool for you. We’ve heard that ghd makes some of the best heat tools on the market and I have to admit that this is true. While the price tag is usually a hefty one, it is well worth it. This one touch tool is so easy to use and leaves your hair with a bouncy, shiny finish that is pretty much unmatched. Because I do wear extensions and wigs, this is a god-send. It has one temperature setting that is optimized for straightening, waving or curling your hair with little to no heat damage. I love that you never get that charred hair smell when using this tool. I would highly recommend.
