If you need something to feel excited about right now, you’re in luck. Nordstrom’s beloved Anniversary Sale is back this year, opening up to all card members on August 13 and the public on August 19. (If you’re a high-level card member, you most likely already know that you can shop the sale already, but here’s another reminder anyway!)
Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale couldn’t be coming at a better time to help get our self-care and beauty routines back on track. From the latest and greatest skincare gadgets to candles to reparative haircare treatments, this sale is loaded with sweet deals on feel-good and feel-glowier products from some of our favorite brands. We’ve gone through every single item in Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale preview to round-up the best sales and exclusive sets to add to your cart or wishlist. Be sure to bookmark this article as we’ll be updating this constantly in the lead up to one of our favorite beauty sales of the year.
All-Star Hair Heroes Set
Calling all frizzy and damaged hair types. Briogeo’s all-stars hero set includes the fragrance-free brand’s cult-favorite Don’t Despair, Repair mask, which has been clinically proven to reduce hair breakage just three times after use. The set also includes Briogeo’s Farwell Friz, which helps make hair look and feel softer, as well as a travel-sized Scalp Revival that detoxifies and reduces build-up and flakiness.
Maison Noir Crisp Champagne Maison Metallo Two-Wick Candle
Caviar taste on a shoestring budget? Volupsa’s crisp champagne candle is one of our top picks for fancy-looking inexpensive candles, with a scent that that transports us to a sunny day in the south of France with gentle hints of vanilla and barrel oak. A very wise item to have on hand as a failsafe gift.
Pure Silk Queen Pillowcase Duo
Studies have found that humans spend a third of their lifetime sleeping (or at least trying to do so). Besides feeling super luxe, there are significant benefits to upgrading to silk pillowcases, such as keeping skin hydrated and preventing creases and folds. Slip makes the crème de la crème of silk pillowcases and can rarely be found on sale as well.
Professional Maximizing Lips & Eyes Set
This Nordstrom exclusive set includes Dior Beauty’s plumping Lip Maximizer gloss, Lip Glow (a lip balm so legendary that Meghan Markle even wore the coral shade on her wedding day) and a mini-sized plumping eyelash primer. PS: You’re forgiven if you want to use this eye candy of a pouch as a wallet as well.
Votive Candle Set
If you’ve somehow made it until now without ever trying a Malin + Goetz candle, kindly allow me to introduce you to a votive trio of warm and spicy scents with universal appeal. This set includes the brand’s best-selling cannabis, dark rum and leather scents. (If and when you fall in love with these, know that they’re all available as perfumes as well.)
This fan-favorite fluid highlighter creates a dewy, lit-from-within glow that makes skin look distinguishably more awake. If you’ve never tried it before and your skin tone is shade 2, you are in luck with this steal of a set that also comes with a blurring primer and a Lip Maestro liquid lipstick in a perfect day-to-night shade of Casual Pink.
White Trinity Facial Toning Kit
After sale: $325
NuFACE’s award-winning facial toning device sends micro-currents through the skin, which helps boost collagen and lift muscle, effectively creating a more tightened appearance. The device requires frequent use and results vary, but many users (Jennifer Aniston included) praise its quality.
Skincare Full Size DRx SpectraLite FaceWare Pro LED Light Therapy Device Set
Created by Dr. Dennis Gross, the dermatologist who treats everyone in Hollywood from Selena Gomez to Chrissy Teigen, this futuristic light therapy device builds collagen and zaps acne-causing bacteria in just three minutes. The FaceWare’s patented design includes 100 LED lights in red mode and 62 LED lights in blue mode, which also helps to diminish discoloration and firm skin. (And, as unofficial added bonus: the selfie potential here is huge.)
Cura Professional Digital Ionic Hair Dryer
After sale: $235
Suitable for all hair types, T3’s high-tech Cura blowdryer uses IonAir technology to produce digitally-controlled heat, which allows for a speedier dry. Reviewers love how this model is quieter than other hair dryers, comfy to grip and super easy to use as well.
Ultimate Strength Hand Salve
After sale: $16
Even though it’s ninety degrees and humid right now, dry hand season is just around the corner. (And if your hands are already dry from all the rigorous hand-washing, know that our bright red knuckles are right there with yours). Here, a rare chance to snag Kiehl’s legendary hand salve at such a steeply discounted price.
Essential Care Collection
Famous for drawing on the holistic powers of Korean herbal medicine, Sulwahsoo became Korea’s first beauty brand to ever break an annual sales milestone of 1 trillion won back in 2015. If the K-pop brand is still new to you though, this skincare collection will intro you to some of their most-hyped products (all of which are more focused on soothing than resurfacing). This includes: Sulwahoo’s ginseng-infused activating serum, balancing water, balancing emulsion, firming cream, eye cream as well as two sheet masks.
Plump Lips & Sexy Lashes Duo
After sale: $54
Does Too Faced’s Better Than Sex mascara actually live up to its name? Depends on your personal life. But, considering how the saucily named pink tube was at one point the world’s best-selling mascara globally, we suspect many might agree. This set also includes the brand’s lip plumper.
