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.
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.
Makeup and Nails
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.
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.
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.
'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.
That said, if targeting stubborn damage is more your prerogative, this must-have kit of essentials will be right up your alley.
