Read on for a handful of the best beauty deals you’ll find at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this year, running July 15 through August 5.

Nordstrom’s annual sale event will feature huge discounts on clothing, home goods, and beauty items. If you’re a Nordstrom fan, you know it’s the place to go for tried-and-true brands across all departments (Birkenstock, Le Creuset, Adidas, and Charlotte Tilbury, to name a few).

The sale kicks off to the general public on July 15 and runs through August 5. But, if you’re a Nordstrom cardholder, you can start shopping as early as July 11 (depending on your tier status).

Nuface Mini, a Nordstrom Anniversary Sale beauty deal

NuFace Mini+ Facial Toning Kit — $165.00

Originally $250

This small-but-mighty microcurrent device from NuFace aims to lift and tone your skin in just five minutes. We tried it ourselves and thought the results were pretty darn impressive, although it does require regular use to keep the benefits rolling. The smallest (and most affordable) of the NuFace line, this Mini+ comes equipped with the brand’s Aqua Gel Activator so you can glide the device over your face with ease.


unseen sunscreen duo, a nordstrom anniversary sale beauty deal

Supergoop Unseen Sunscreen Jumbo + Go Set — $52.00

Originally $78

We’ve tried (and loved) basically every Supergoop sunscreen product, but we especially love their Unseen Sunscreen. This duo of big and little Unseen Sunscreens makes it easy to always have a little SPF on hand. Both the 2.5-ounce tube and .7-ounce stick feature the brand’s non-greasy, water-resistant SPF 40.


sunday riley jumbo good genes, a nordstrom anniversary sale beauty deal

Sunday Riley Jumbo Good Genes All-in-One Lactic Acid Treatment — $185.00

Originally $284

If you’re already a fan of Sunday Riley’s coveted lactic acid treatment, there’s no better time to stock up with this jumbo-sized bottle (as in 3.4 ounces) of Good Genes. It’s one of our favorites for exfoliating and brightening the skin, and during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale you can snag it for $100 off. We’d call that a win-win.

Deborah Lippmann Cuticle Repair Kit — $40.00

Originally $66

One of our top picks for a quality cuticle oil, Deborah Lippmann’s Repair Kit includes everything you need to breathe some life back into your dry, cracked cuticles. The set includes a bottle of her beloved jojoba-based cuticle treatment, a deep-conditioning oil, and an exfoliating cuticle remover. Hello, soft hands!


Dr Dennis Gross LED mask set, a Nordstrom Anniversary Sale beauty deal

Dr. Dennis Gross DRx SpectraLite Light Therapy Skincare Set — $455.00

Originally $641

While still a splurge, this set from Dr. Dennis Gross comes with much more than just the brand’s beloved LED mask. In addition to the DRx SpectraLite Light Therapy Device (which reduces the appearance of fine lines and improves skin tone using red and blue LED light), you’ll get two serums (DermInfusions Fill + Repair Serum and Advanced Retinol + Ferulic Triple Correction Eye Serum) and five exfoliating Alpha Beta Extra Strength Daily Peel treatments. At almost a $200 savings, it’s a pretty great deal.

Best Nordstrom Anniversary Sale haircare deals


moroccanoil treatment set, a nordstrom anniversary sale beauty deal

Moroccanoil Treatment Home & Away Set — $50.00

Originally $74

Moroccanoil’s original Argan oil treatment is one of our go-to recommendations for treating dry hair. This set features a full- and mini-size bottle of the brand’s soothing treatment, which softens hair, detangles, and helps give your locks a healthy shine.


drybar detox dry shampoo, a nordstrom anniversary sale beauty deal

Drybar Detox Dry Shampoo — $28.00

Originally $42

This big ‘ol bottle of Drybar’s top-selling dry shampoo is a staple in any beauty cabinet. Made with golden root extract and rice powder, it’s absorbent and mattifying enough to tackle post-workout hair, yet light enough to spruce up your locks between washes. Plus, the jasmine and vanilla scent smells dreamy.


drybar blow dry brush, a nordstrom anniversary sale beauty deal

Drybar Double Shot Blow-Dryer Brush — $103.00

Originally $155

Another favorite from Drybar (and one of our picks of the best blow-dryer brushes), this round brush smooths and styles as it dries your hair. The 2.4-inch barrel is covered in nylon and tufted bristles to gently grip your locks while you style. You can even choose from three temperature settings to ensure you’re only using as much heat as you need.

slip pillow case 2-pack, a nordstrom anniversary sale beauty deal

Slip King Silk Pillowcase 2-Pack — $154.00

Originally $220

When it comes to silk pillowcases, Slip is a W+G favorite. This set includes two king-sized pillowcases made from 100-percent silk, which helps reduce hair breakage (and bedhead) and prevents unnecessary pulling on your sweet, delicate face while you snooze.


briogeo scalp savers set, a nordstrom anniversary sale beauty deal

Briogeo Scalp Saviors Set — $42.00

Originally $60

When it comes to cleaning and exfoliating our scalps, we’ve reached for this scrub from Briogeo for years.

Plus, the set comes with a handheld massager to help make your scrub experience even more luxurious.

Best Nordstrom Anniversary Sale fragrance and makeup deals


le labo discovery set, a nordstrom anniversary sale beauty deal

Le Labo Discovery Set — $67.00

Originally $99

If you’ve ever wanted to try Le Labo’s luxurious fragrances but have been (understandably) deterred by the cost, this discovery set is your chance. During Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale save $32 on this set of three scents, including the fan-favorite Santal 33. In addition to the woody Santal, you’ll find Lavande 31 (a spin on lavender) and Another 13 (a musky jasmine blend). Warning: we can’t promise you won’t get hooked and end up buying a full-sized bottle.



Nars Iconic Blush Duo — $40.00

Originally $68

I—and several of my friends—have used Nars’ “Orgasm” as our go-to blush for the last decade. The peachy hue with a touch of shimmer looks good on any skin tone and provides just the right amount of pop. This duo set also includes Nars’ “Deep Throat” (just really going for it, huh Nars?) which is a slightly darker shade of pink, with less shimmer but just as much fun.


laura mercier setting powder, a nordstrom anniversary sale beauty deal

Laura Mercier All Set for Flawless Setting Powder and Puff — $59.00

Originally $97

Laura Mercier’s All Set for Flawless is one of our favorite setting powders. The translucent shade is great for all skin tones, and it tackles shine for up to 16 hours without caking into creases. This jumbo-sized container also comes with a soft velour puff for easy application.
