Today is the day many of us cardholders get to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I’m not quite as impressed with the selection this year as I have been in year’s past, but I’m sure something will go in my cart. At least returns are free. There is one item I’m definitely restocking and it’s a splurge for me- neuLASH Enhancing Serum.
I’m pretty frugal and any beauty item over $30 or $40 is a splurge for me, especially when I’m skeptical about whether or not it will really work. Spending more money on beauty products does not necessarily translate to better results. I tried out the neuLash Serum last year during the sale. It’s a really good deal since you are basically getting two for the price of one. And it worked! In a few months, I had longer, fuller lashes. They were becoming non-existent before I started using this product and now I have longer, fuller lashes. If lashes are an issue for you, give this a try.
There are other beauty/skin products that I use, trust and love available during the sale. Anytime I can get the things I use at a significant discount, I stock up.
So what else is worth the splurge?
Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Eyeliner- I started using this several years ago when I was on the hunt for an eyeliner that didn’t smudge and didn’t smear into the creases of my hooded eyes. Liquid eye liner was new for me back then but I found this one easy to apply as well. You are getting two at a savings of $8.
Kiehls Ultimate Strength Hand Cream- A good reliable hand cream. I’ve even caught my husband reaching for it when his hands were dry from all the COVID hand washing.
Silk Queen Pillowcase Duo– We paid around $80 when I got mine and I thought we were crazy! An $80 pillowcase!? Yes! Totally worth it. I rarely have bed head or creases on my face when I wake up. I even take my pillowcase with me when I travel. This is a two piece set at a significant discount, so get one for you and one for a friend, or keep the second one as a spare.
Moroccan Oil Hair Treatment- I have this and love it. It really does tame the dry frizzies.
Anything Supergoop! My favorite is the daily moisturizer with SPF40.
First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream– This set includes an eye cream that I have not used, but would allow me to try it at a discounted price. My 80-year old mother loves the Ultra Repair Cream and says it drastically improved the thinning, dry skin on her forearms.
What else is worth grabbing during the sale besides the beauty products?
I tried Zella leggings and sports bras for the first time last year and the quality is definitely worth the hype, so I’d recommend anything Zella you might be eyeing. It doesn’t go on sale often and it’s hard to catch your sizes when it does.
