Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access has been up and running for the last couple of days. I have given you my makeup favorites for the sale in the previous post and my fashion picks in this post, but in this post we are talking skin care! Honestly it was just too much for one post so I split it up. Like the previous post, I have chosen these products based on the value and products that I have tried or am interested in trying. These products are in order of their images. You can see all Nordstrom Anniversary Skin Care here!
Bobbi Brown Hydrating Skin Care Trio ($80)- This set includes a full sized eye cream and face cream (both over $50) and a travel sized cleansing oil. Bobbi Brown has awesome eye and face creams- they are basic with not much anti aging involved, but super hydrating and you should be using serums for your anti aging anyway 🙂 This set is on the top of my list for skin care because I have used them before and for me they are hydrating and don’t break me out or irritate my skin and perform great under makeup.
Clarisonic Mia ($86), Mia 2 ($113), or Mia Fit ($146)- If you’re in the market for a new clarisonic, the Nordstrom sale is the perfect time to get one as all skin care tools are 33% off! The clarisonic cleans your pores with sonic technology, exfoliates, and makes your skin smooth as glass! There are also sensitive refill brushes and a variety brush head set on sale as well
Foreo Luna Mini ($66), Luna Mini 2 ($93), Regular Luna 2 ($166)- This is similar to the clarisonic, except it’s made of silicone and there are no refill brushes! I have the original mini- $66 in this sale- and I only have to charge it every 4-5 months. I have had it for three years and it’s still going strong. I find this to be better for my sensitive skin and less irritating than the clarisonic which gave me broken capillaries on my nose 🙁 . I know a lot of people love the clarisonic, but this is another option to take note of.
Paula’s Choice Liquid 2% BHA Duo ($35)- deal alert This is a skin care holy grail for me. I have used this product for the last four years and it’s great to use every night or morning (or both) as part of your routine for clear, smooth skin. This product is great if you have texture, breakouts, or congested pores and black heads. It never dries out my skin and I would never be with out it! One bottle retails for $27. If you want to read more about see my skin care routine here. #mydesertislandproduct
Round 2: Truth time, I haven’t used the top two products in the above picture, but I know some of you have and rave about them so I wanted to include them! They are some of the pricier sets but good deals non the less.
Lancôme Genefique Youth Activating Trio ($150)- This set has two full sized serums and a half size of the eye cream. This serum has 748 reviews with an average 4.8 out of 5- impressive! Just one of these serums retails for $105. #thatsagooddeal All these good reviews have me very tempted!
Estée Lauder ReNutriv Regenerating Youth Set ($295)- I personally know some mature ladies with great looking skin who swear by this stuff and have used it for years. If I could afford it- I would use it too! This set has quite a few ReNutriv products in it so it seems like a great option if you want to try several products from this line or if you need replenishment or back-ups. Here are Estee Lauder’s other skin care sets: Renew and Repair Set, Detox and Glow set, and Night Detox and Glow Set.
Clinique Thirst Quenchers Set ($99)- This is a set of two mega sized Moisture Surge moisturizers at 4.2 oz each with an addition of the .5 oz of the Moisture Surge Concentrate. I have used moisture surge before, and it is a wonderful gel type moisturizer that has hyaluronic acid (also oil free and fragrance free) to keep your skin hydrated. No bells or whistles with this one- just gentle moisturization, but it’s a great one to add into your skin routine if your skin is feeling parched or if you need something gentle because you are on retin-A or other harsh skin treatments. Here are Clinique’s other offerings including a different cream, a different lotion and a different gel, as well as a makeup remover set with take the day off.
Iluminage Skin Rejuvenating Eye Mask ($23)- This is an eye mask that is supposed to be infused with copper to give you anti aging benefits while you sleep. And I quote: “minimizes the appearance of wrinkles while you sleep.” #yesplease I like a good eye mask because I sleep better when there isn’t like creeping in, plus possible anti aging benefits while I wear it- sounds like a no brainer. There’s also a cheaper option that has similar claims in the sale by ME for $16 you can see here!
If there are any skin care items that you swear by in the sale let me know! There’s also La Mer, Kiehls, and Philosophy items in the sale that didn’t make it into this post. You can see all the skin care in the anniversary sale here! Happy Shopping! The sale starts for everyone July 21st!
