Our Favorite NSale Beauty Finds

July 10, 2022

By:

Team LIY

We all know the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is thee time to snag the best Fall fashion items from cozy sweaters to waterproof booties. But it’s also an amazing opportunity to stock up on tried & true beauty favorites, or a chance to try something new at prices that are hard to beat. The LIY Team found ourselves “oohing and ahhing” all throughout the Beauty Counters at Nordstrom this year, so today, we’re sharing those items with Y-O-U. Without further ado, here are our Favorite Beauty Finds from the 2022 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

ANNIVERSARY SALE SHOPPING TIPS & TRICKS

  1. Anything that you love and want for yourself, add to your wish list and check out once the sale is live for your card level [reminder: login into your Nordstrom account to determine your shopping status! If you’re not a cardholder, it will be open to everybody on July 15th! If it isn’t currently available, things are always coming in and out of stock, so check back often!
  2. Remember that Nordstrom always offers free shipping and free returns! Because of this, I would recommend ordering any of the things you are unsure of, to make sure that you can get it at the sale price and return it if it doesn’t work!
  3. Some of the items I mention may currently be out of stock, but check back often for restocks! We’ll also be notifying you of restocks over on our Facebook page and #NSALE group [highly recommend joining the group for a ton of helpful info and nightly giveaways!] 
  4. Keep in mind that while the sale lasts until 8/1, things go quick so don’t be like N*Sync and have to say “bye, bye, bye” to everything before it’s gone – shop early!
  5. If there’s anything I didn’t cover and you still have questions, ask away below and I’ll answer right here so check back! For more Nordstrom Anniversary Sale posts, click here!

NSALE Beauty Favorites

OLAPLEX HAIR CARE SET

I started using Olaplex a year or two ago after my hairstylist recommended it to me and I haven’t stopped using it since. I am a huge fan of the shampoo, conditioner, and the No. 3 hair perfector mask. These products are great for strengthening your hair and correcting damage. I love that this trio comes with a large #3 as it typically comes in a tiny bottle [I promise this hair mask does wonders on your hair if you use 1 – 2x per week]!

NuFace Trinity Facial Toning Kit

NuFace Trinity Facial Toning Kit

NuFace over $120 off! 🥳 Reduce lines and puffiness with daily use of this lil contraption! Your face will thank you! This combo is typically over $300 and this is one of the only times each year you can get it for this low! 

RUM BODY WASH

After staying in a hotel recently in LA that used this body wash, I knew I wanted to buy it for my home. When I spotted it in this year’s sale, I was so excited. This stuff smells amazing and feels like a luxury treat every time I step foot into my shower now!

HUM HAIR SWEET HAIR GUMMIES

If you follow along on Instagram stories, you’ve probably heard me talk about my hair loss journey as of recently. Ever since having a stressful Q1 and then getting sick with COVID, my hair has been falling out like crazy. I’ve recently started looking for products that help create healthier hair in hopes of keeping every strand in that I can. 😉 I started taking two of these a day and am excited to see if they make a difference!

SLIP SILK HAIR TIES

I bought this brand of silk hair ties a year or two ago and have been using them ever since. Because they are silk they are a lot gentler on your hair creating less breakage and hair-pulling. It doesn’t hurt they are pretty cute too.

ORIBE DRY TEXTURE SPRAY + DRY SHAMPOO DUO

I never thought I’d be willing to spend much on dry shampoo, but when we put this Oribe product to the test in a dry shampoo comparison a year or two ago and I fell in love, I knew it was worth it. It smells amazing, absorbs great, and is a huge bottle so it lasts forever. This duo comes with both dry shampoo and texturizing spray which I always apply after curling to add volume and grit!

SLIP SILK PILLOWCASE

I’m not the only one who loves my silk pillowcase 😉 I’ve been using a silk pillowcase for a year now and can’t imagine going back to a traditional pillowcase now. Not only is it silky smooth, but it’s great for your skin as well. The most noticeable difference is in breakouts [or lack thereof] and it has a lot of benefits for your hair to cause damage while sleeping.

JO MALONE PERFUME

I’m a sucker for a good perfume and Jo Malone is just the ticket! While this exact scent is not included in the sale this year, there are several sets worth checking out!

DONNA KAREN DEODORANT

I know, I know, it’s expensive deodorant but one whiff of this stuff and you’ll understand why. I never knew my armpits could smell so good. Would I buy this and pay full price, probably not. But will I buy it when it’s on sale and tell everybody who comes near me to smell my armpits? You betcha.

FLOWERBOMB SET

’ve been wearing this scent for several years, so anytime I can get it on sale, I stock up!! Such a great scent that so many of you also love!

T3 1.25” CURLING IRON

My hairstylist turned me on to this T3 curling iron after using it on my hair every time I was at the salon. Not only is she pretty [that rose gold detail though !] she works like a champ. I like that the barrel seems to be a little longer than most which makes curling a little easier! It does have several heat settings so you can crank that baby as high or as low as you want! All in all, it’s been a great curling iron for me and I’d highly recommend it!

Classic PMD

Introducing another higher-ticket item that I’ve been waiting to snag on sale! I am SO excited about this one. If you’ve never heard of a Personal Microderm Device, you should know that this little tool “provides chemical-free exfoliation that’s 800% deeper than a scrub, taking away hyperpigmentation, scars and reducing acne. Because of the vacuum technology, the body heals beneath the surface, promoting cell turnover while reducing fine lines and wrinkles”. In other words, it has vacuum suction to exfoliate by removing dead/dull skin to reveal softer, smoother skin. It increases hydration, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, evens skin tone and texture, diminishes the appearance of spots, AND reduces the appearance of pore size. Check, check, check!

Living Proof Set

I have been a fan of Living Proof’s dry shampoo for some time now so I wanted to try their shampoo, conditioner + texture spray set! So far I am loving it–feels luxe and smells amazing!

Foot Treatment

Anyone else love using foot peels? So disgustingly satisfying. 😂 I snagged this 4 pack in the #NSale and am happy to be stocked up and ready for the next peel sesh!

PMD Facial Cleansing Device

I was pretty excited to see this PMD facial cleansing device in the NSale, because at 34, I’m finally taking skin care a liiiiitle more seriously. Pair this with my daily skincare routine, and I’m hoping for clearer, cleaner skin in no time!

Body Wash & The Body Lotion Set

Okay, I’m on the fence with this one. The body wash smells super calming which I love, but the lotion has no fragrance. If that’s your jam then it’s a winner!! It does feel really good on the body. Just trying to decide if it’s worth the price point!

Clinique Moisture Surge

Aquis Rapid Dry Lisse Hair Wrap

Paula’s Choice Jumbo BHA Set

Kate Sommerville Age Arrest Wrinkle Cream


Drybar Blowout Essentials Set $225 Value
