Does anyone else feel like the winter months spanning January to April (sometimes even May depending on where you’re situated in the U.S.) can be kind of, well,
dark? The swirl of excitement and festive cheer that defines the months leading up to the New Year is behind us, and all of a sudden, it feels like there’s not that much to look forward to until the first blossoming signs of spring.
So, when our
favorite retailers (like Nordstrom) bless us with a February surprise in the form of an epic Winter Sale, we’re grateful, to say the least. (Not that we should depend on shopping as a source of happiness, of course, but hey, saving big on best-selling beauty standbys is always cause for celebration, right?)
If you’re reading this, you’re in luck, because from February 18 through February 27,
Nordstrom is offering amazing savings on a wide selection of fan-favorite fashion and beauty. Up to 60% off, to be exact! You can peruse all of the beauty offerings here, but in case you’re in need of some guidance or expert recs, we’re sharing 20 of our top picks you’ll want to add to your cart, stat. Keep scrolling!
Talk about a dynamic duo. Kiehl’s fan-favorite sunscreen plays Batman to help prevent environmentally induced pigmentation from the get-go, while its PIC Robin (aka the Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution) tackles any lingering discoloration you’re currently dealing with.
Five best-selling skincare products from Mario Badescu for just $20? Unreal. You’ll have everything you need for dewy, balanced, and ultra-glowy skin this season.
Don’t underestimate the power of an epic bath. This dreamy trio of bath salts, bath soak, and body polish has your next luxurious night in covered (for a fraction of its normal going rate!).
It might be winter (aka dry-skin city), but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your skin’s radiance quotient. This best-selling coconut elixir from Kopari is the next best thing to a luxe tropical vacation and will keep you topped up with hydration from limb to limb.
I’ve tried tons of face masks in my time as a beauty editor, and GlamGlow is always the best when I need results fast. This limited-edition set features four best-selling mud mask treatments to decongest, moisturize, smooth, and tighten skin with break-neck speed.
If you thought a jade roller is just a jade roller, you definitely haven’t tried Herbivore’s Rolls Royce–esque model. It has a cult-following and thanks to this amazing deal, you’ll also get on-the-go sizes of the brand’s Bakuchiol Retinol Alternative Smoothing Serum and Lapis Balancing Facial Oil.
Celebrities and editors alike go wild for this Hungarian face mist. (It’s truly magical and will convert even the most rigid non-believers out there when it comes to face mists.) This deal gets bonus points for coming with a lip-reviving lip balm.
Dreaming of firmer, more youthful-looking skin? This four-piece set has every single base covered, and we’re tempted to buy a lifetime’s supply.
It’s not every day that you can snag a top-rated concealer for $12, y’all. It’s crease-proof and effortlessly masks dark circles, blemishes, and anything else you’re trying to camouflage.
I won’t beat around the bush here—I’ve only tried a handful of organic mascaras that can live up to my favorite non-organic formulas. This defining formula from RMS gives the best definition and won’t cause any irritation. It’s basically clump-proof, and will never flake or smudge.
I always reach for my collection of Deborah Lippmann polishes when I don’t have the time (or budget) for an expensive manicure. This limited-edition set has all of my favorite shades for a fraction of the price.
Cushion foundations are all the rage right now, and this one from French brand Sisley Paris is the crème de la crème. It has a unique anti-pollution formula that offers the perfect ratio of brightness and coverage in one fell swoop.
Not one, not two, but five of MAC Cosmetics matte Powder Kiss Lipsticks. These new, limited-edition shades outdo any other matte formula we’ve tried due to how magically hydrating they are despite their flattering matte finish.
Technically, this stunning powder from Urban Decay is a highlighter, but it also pulls double-duty as the prettiest light-catching eyeshadow. So, yeah, you’re basically getting two entirely different products for just $13.
You (and anyone else who visits your abode) will love this wintry mix of cinnamon, patchouli, sandalwood, orange, and bergamot so much, you’ll wish you had ordered five.
Thierry Mugler created one of the most iconic fragrances of all time when he launched his sophomore perfume, Alien, 17 years ago. This fresh iteration is a hotter, spicier take, sizzling with enveloping notes like vanilla, ginger, cinnamon, orange blossom, and white amber. The fact that it’s just $44 is alien in and of itself.
This UK-made sleep staple is basically a lullaby in candle form—think soothing notes of lavender and Roman chamomile. It’s divine.
Is it just us, or does this next-level set feel too good to be true?! A perfect blowout (every dang day) is just $70 away.
‘Tis the season for dry, thirsty AF strands. Unless, of course, you have this healing trio from Briogeo situated in your shower. 10/10 recommend.
