Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Beauty Picks

July 19, 2017

In case you haven't heard, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is on! This sale is a real event since it's offers a great chance to score some incredible deals for a limited time and all orders qualify for free shipping and returns. Of course the first thing I had to browse are the Beauty Exclusive and these are some of the items I have my eye on. Since I don't really need anything right now, I'm looking at restocking products that I already use like the Supergoop SPF 50 Antioxidant-Infused Sunscreen Mist with Vitamin C.  We go through a few bottles every summer and this three pack is like 35% off which makes it a fantastic value. The neuLASH Lash Enhancing Serum Duo is like getting one for free. It's a pricey product but it's definitely one of the best lash enhancing products I've ever tried with impressive visible results. The Diptyque Scented Candle SetWinky Lux Your Bestie The Nudes Trio and Skinny Dip Marble Manicure Set would all make terrific gifts. Trust me now is not too soon to start your holiday shopping. I'm almost done with mine.

Nordstrom cardholders get exclusive early access to the sale on July 14th. The Anniversary Sale is open to everyone else on July 21. It’s the biggest sale of the year and these items go fast! Have you shopped this sale?

I've been looking forward to summer all winter long but now that it's finally arrived, I'm reminded of what I don't enjoy so much about the season - specifically the sweltering heat and getting sweaty and gross. While I can't really avoid the heat entirely, there are things that I can do keep my cool and make the most of summer.

I was recently selected by Influenster to receive a Jane Iredale VoxBox with the Jane Iredale Pure & Simple Makeup Kit that includes a PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation, Blush, Eye Shadow, and Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain. Jane Iredale is a brand that I've a had a positive impression of since I was first introduced to them at a beauty event hosted by Allure magazine a few years ago. Jane Iredale is a mineral makeup company that blurs the lines between skincare and makeup with a clean and cruelty-free product range that nurtures skin and enhance the lives of their consumers through their effectiveness and simplicity. This same principles have guided their philanthropic efforts which are directed towards causes that help women,  the environment and the arts.

This Elle France editorial just perfectly captures the carefree spirit of summer. And I'm loving how the effortlessly chic clothing styled on model Adela Stenberg is actually representative of how people dress in real life. I mean I'm all for editorials being extravagant and aspirational but it's also nice to see a reflection of reality from time to time. Do you have a preference?

Hanbang which stands herbal treatment is a holistic form of skincare that has been integral to K-beauty for quite some time since it is based on the healing system of traditional herbal medicine which has been in practice for over 2,000 years. Hanbang skincare is all about creating balance with plant and flower based ingredients like ginseng, green tea, lotus root, ginger and licorice. Popular hanbang beauty brands include Sulwhasoo and History of Whoo while a number of other K-beauty brands like Missha and The Face Shop also have dedicated hanbang lines with their product range. I'm personally a big fan of hanbang beauty because you can't really argue with centuries old wisdom and I have found a number of products which have worked for me. The product I'm reviewing today is a hanbang beauty product that combines herbal medicine science with modern science.
