During my tenure as a beauty editor, I’ve put thousands of products to the test. I’ve trialed moisturizers formulated by scientists, serums developed by influencers, clean makeup, every shade of nail polish known to man, and the list goes on. All this to say, I’ve got some pretty strong opinions on which items are worth spending those hard-earned coins on. And even though it’s my job to tell you what’s new, noteworthy, and worth buying (or skipping!), I also like to make sure I’m giving you enough reasons to justify any given purchase.
If you ask me, a good sale is the ultimate rationale for making some additions to any beauty arsenal. As it turns out, it’s everybody’s anniversary this month and that means the savings are coming in hot. And in fact, two of my favorite destinations for those worth-it beauty buys, Nordstrom and Dermstore, are each celebrating decades in the business by doling out mind-boggling discounts.
While savings at Nordstrom won’t be available to those who aren’t members until August 19, now is the perfect time to check out the selection so you can be the first in line once the most coveted items become available to everyone. And at Dermstore, simply use code CELEBRATE at checkout to cash in savings of up to 25%.
Without further ado, I give you 32 body, makeup, skincare, and hair care items from both sales that stand out from the rest.
