The 11 Absolute Best Beauty Deals From Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale
Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale is in full swing and the deals are HOT. Thousands upon thousands of new arrivals are marked deeply down during the retailer’s two-week sale period. While that should sound like a blessing (and of course, it is), it’s also totally overwhelming.
If you’re on the hunt for top fashion deals, we recommend perusing our fall picks to get a competitive edge on next season’s wardrobe. But we’d also like to make a few extremely key sale suggestions from Nordstrom’s beauty department — the entire category remained full price at the store’s last big blowout, it’s Half-Yearly Sale, so this is a rare opportunity.
Some of the very best deals and exclusives you can find at Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale, now through August 4, include special-edition travel sets from brands like La Mer, Le Labo, and Diptyque. Kiehl’s, Moon Juice, and Living Proof deliver super-sized versions of their best-sellers at micro-sized prices. And pricey devices become more affordable with LightSTim and T3.

Best High-End Skincare Deal: La Mer Mini Miracles Set
La Mer is widely seen as the end-all, be-all to luxury skincare; however, its typically exorbitant price point makes it a white whale to many would-be buyers. Women who try a sample often bemoan the fact that it actually works — dooming them to a future wherein they’re shelling out hundreds to keep up a newfound dependency on expensive moisturizer. Today, La Mer’s magic just got a little more affordable in the form of a $122-valued three-piece set, priced at just $90 (which is what the mini Moisturizing Soft Cream, included in this set, costs on its own).

Best Anti-Aging Device Deal: LightStim for Wrinkles White LED Light Therapy Device
We’ve come a long way in anti-aging technology — beyond just retinoids and vitamin Cs, we now have at our disposal countless tools that use infrared and radio frequencies to stimulate collagen production and reverse the aging process. Our top anti-aging tool recommendation from today’s sale is this light therapy wand that uses technology proven to smooth wrinkles, balance your skin tone and even depuff your eye area.

Best Lash Serum Deal: Revitalash ADVANCED Eyelash Conditioner Duo
The fact that this is the exact lash serum used by Meghan Markle should be motivation enough to add this two-for-one deal to your cart, but if you’re a cosmetics skeptic (good!) here’s a little more on why this specific formula is worth the investment. Using a proprietary ingredient blend called Biopeptin™ Complex, Revitalash’s lash conditioner is one of the few serums that actually works. Not only does it protect and strengthen the follicle, it also promotes fresh growth from the root.

Best Hair Product Deal: Living Proof Perfect Hair Day™ Deluxe Trio
Whoever had the idea to put the good shampoos and conditioners in Barbie-sized bottles that run out within a week can quite frankly get stuffed. Nowhere in the constitution does it say that quality hair products can’t come in value-sized packaging, and today’s deal is a sign that Living Proof is willing to finally give the people what they want: big bottles. Get a jumbo-sized (24 ounce) shampoo and a jumbo-sized conditioner — plus a four-ounce dry shampoo to boot — for just $89, and stop worrying about running out mid-shower.

Best Hair Tool Deal: T3 Cura Hair Dryer
If you’ve ever watched Amal Clooney’s curls bounce gracefully on the red carpet, what you may have actually been witnessing was the effect of a T3 Cura Hair Dryer, according to the barrister’s hair stylist Rod Ortega. This gentle yet powerful blow dryer may be the secret to the healthy, shiny waves you’ve been dreaming of — and the effortless mornings you desperately need.

Best Candle Deal: Diptyque Set of 5 Travel Size Candles
