We're going to cut right to the chase. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is officially upon us and there is an abundance of deals to scoop up before August 8, the last day of the epic event, rolls around. However, even though the discounts are incredibly deep, your cart can rack up serious monetary damage before you even realize it. But rest assured, we have good news. You absolutely don't need to break the bank in order to replenish your beauty collection. In fact, as you'll read in just a moment, there is plenty of skin care, body care, makeup, and hair care that rings in at $35 or under.
We're talking about exclusive sets and jumbo-size products curated by some of our favorite brands such as Mario Badescu, Fresh, Nars, Stila, Herbivore Botanicals, and so much more. But hurry, these deals won't last long — and once they sell out, they're gone forever (or possibly until next year's sale).
Mario Badescu The Essentials Set
Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Cleanser
Kiehl's Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Face Mask
Mario Badescu's The Essentials Set includes three full-size products for just $23. The items in question include the Reader's Choice Award-winning Drying Lotion, which uses a potent dose of redness-reducing calamine, salicylic acid, and bacteria-fighting sulfur to shrink and heal active breakouts overnight. Finish off your skin-care routine with the Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs, and Rosewater to calm and hydrate skin and the Rose Lip Balm to nourish dry, cracked lips any time of the day.
Kate Somerville's ExfoliKate Cleanser is ideal for people with acne-prone skin. Chock-full of glycolic and lactic acids that sweep away breakout-causing dirt, you'll witness a smoother, clearer complexion with regular use — a most worthy goal, in our opinion.
In need of a major pore-busting self-care session? Kiehl's Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Face Mask picked up a 2020 Best of Beauty Award for its vacuuming-like abilities that remove dead skin cells in just 10 minutes. Bentonite and Amazonian white clay deeply cleanse and unclog pores, while aloe vera soothes skin so you're left with baby-soft skin. Thank us later.
Kopari Hydration Heroes
Fresh Rose Petal Soft Lip Cream Set
Kopari's Hydration Heroes comes with two full-size tubs of the original Coconut Melt and piña colada-scented Tropical Coconut Melt. These multitasking coconut oils are must-haves in any skin-care cabinet because they basically do the job of four (or more) products. Put this sensitive-skin-friendly formula to work as a nourishing hair mask, body moisturizer, makeup remover, dry shave oil, belly balm, and so much more. Vitamin E and fatty acids work in tandem to seriously smooth and soften skin and prevent moisture loss.
Douse dry, cracked lips in floral-scented hydration with Fresh's Rose Petal-Soft Lip Cream Set thanks to a full-size Rose Petal-Soft Lip Cream and travel-size Sugar Advanced Therapy Treatment Lip Balm. Both are perfect and lightweight enough for daytime or nighttime use for all-day nourishment — pucker up.
Nars Afterglow Mini Lip Balm Duo
MAC Travel Size Lipglass Lip Gloss Set
Stila Bold & Bare Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick Set
For those wanting to refresh their lip color collection, you're in luck. Whether you prefer a barely-there hint of a color à la the moisturizing Nars Afterglow Mini Lip Balm Duo (in Deep Throat and Fast Lane) or a glossy finish via MAC's Travel Size Lipglass Lip Gloss Set (shades Clear, Downtown Dazzle, and In La-La-Land), you simply can't go wrong. Case in point? All of these lippies are infused with hydrating coconut and jojoba oils for all-day comfort.
Stila's Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick is an editor-favorite choice for bold, creamy color that lasts all day but won't dry out your lips or feel downright uncomfortable — thanks to the addition of conditioning vitamin E and avocado oil. The three shades — Patina, Baci, and Fia — are bound to be the ideal nude-inspired shade for any mood.
Too Faced Full Size Better Than Sex Volumizing Mascara & Killer Liner Eyeliner Set
Stila Full Size Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner Set
Name a more iconic name than Too Faced's Better Than Sex Volumizing Mascara. After all, it's won two Readers' Choice Awards to date. This full-size, hourglass-shaped brush lends your lashes major, va-va-voom action in just a few coats — and application is far less bothersome than that of falsies. You'll also receive a full-size Killer Liner 36 Hour Waterproof Gel Eyeliner in Black to create precise wings or a smokey, smudged look reminiscent of the runways.
For razor-sharp cat eyes, Stila's Readers' Choice Award-winning Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner is hard to beat. Luckily, you get two full-size liners for just $32 (saving you $12), so you're probably covered for the entire next year. This sleek black pen is designed with an ultra-fine tip and a smooth-gliding, smudge-proof formula for incredible precision and super-black pigmentation that won't come off until you're ready to remove it.
Drybar Jumbo Size Detox Original Scent Dry Shampoo
Baxter of California Clay Pomade Duo
Aveda Botanical Repair Strengthening Leave-In Treatment Set
Drybar's original Detox Dry Shampoo picked up a Best of Beauty Award in 2018 thanks to its ability to seriously soak up oil and extend the life of your blowout — bonus points for a dreamy, vacation-like scent of coconut, amber, and vanilla. Now you can stock up with a jumbo-size canister for many, many second-day hair situations to come.
For those rocking shorter hair, pomades are an excellent styling product that can shape and slick down hair with ease. Warm-up a dollop of Baxter of California's strong yet flexible Clay Pomade with your palms to add texture and/or change up your hairdo throughout the day, as you see fit.
If your hair is in need of some major TLC, we suggest using Aveda's Botanical Repair Strengthening Leave-In Treatment Set. Meet the Intensive Strengthening Masque Rich (travel-size), a rinse-off treatment spiked with nourishing avocado, sacha inchi, green sea, coconut, and sunflower oils for near-instant, buttery-soft results. Once you're out of the shower, apply a glob of the Botanical Repair Strengthening Leave-In Treatment (full-size), which rebuilds damaged bonds, minimizes frizz, detangles, and protects your hair against heat-styling.
Malin+Goetz Eucalyptus Deodorant Set
Origins Ginger Incredible Spreadable Smoothing Body Scrub
Soeder North Stream Natural Hand Sanitizer
Looking for a new natural, aluminum-free deodorant that'll leave your pits smelling as crisp as a New England forest? Malin+Goetz's Eucalyptus Deodorant is armed with odor-neutralizing citronellyl that won't irritate sensitive skin, period. This alcohol-free set comes with two full-size and travel-size bottles to save you a solid $10.
Treat your skin to an in-shower massage with Origins Ginger Incredible Spreadable Smoothing Body Scrub, which buffs away rough, dry skin and envelopes your body in a cocoon of citrusy, ginger-scented hydration. Olive oil, grapeseed oil, rice bran oil, and apricot kernel oil ensure your skin is properly nourished after you hop out of the tub and while you rest.
As we "reenter" society and attend more social gatherings, it's more important than ever to keep hand sanitizer around for on-the-go cleansing. Not only does Soeder's North Stream Hand Sanitizer contain 70 percent alcohol to effectively kill germs, but this fresh-scented spray is also formulated with aloe vera and glycerin to keep hands feeling soft as a baby's bum.
Kiehl's Ultimate Strength Hand Salve
Coola Home & Away Tropical 3-Pack
Herbivore Botanicals Soak & Soften Set
After a long day of typing, driving, washing, and doing chores, slather your hands with Kiehl's Ultimate Strength Hand Salve, which is formulated with glycerin, olive oil, shea butter, and sesame seed oil to intensely hydrate and soothe skin. In fact, this rich formula actually draws and absorbs water from the air and forms a seal of moisture around your skin to prevent future moisture loss.
We cannot stress wearing sunscreen every day (and reapplying every few hours) enough. To make it even easier to cover every inch of your body on your next beach day, Coola's Home & Away Tropical 3-Pack features one full-size and two travel-size canisters of Suncare Classic Body Sunscreen Spray in a fun Piña Colada scent. Mist your way to water-resistant UV protection — in fact, take a few extra seconds to really build up the coverage — so you can spend time outside with fewer worries.
Herbivore Botanicals Soak & Soften Set is ready to completely pamper your body. Who needs the spa when you have the Coco Rose Coconut Oil Body Polish, Coconut Bath Soak, and Calm Bath Salts to create your very own relaxation oasis right in the comfort of your own home? These three indulgent self-care products are infused with coconut, Moroccan rose, pink salt crystals, vanilla, and so much more to gently exfoliate and moisturize skin, and ease your mind after a tiresome day.
While these might be the least expensive items offered at this year's Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, that shouldn't stop you from exploring more beauty goodness over at nordstrom.com before the discounts run dry come August 8.
