As beauty editors, it’s our job to test and trial the newest beauty products on the market in order to keep you, our readers, in the know about what’s worth investing in for your own collection. But no matter how overflowing our bathrooms are with buzzy, just-released cleansers, toners, moisturizers, and serums, there are certain items that will forever and always maintain a permanent spot in our skin-care routines.
While many of these products will normally cost you a pretty penny, thanks to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020—which starts August 13—you can now score them for a whole lot less than full price. Scroll through for the discounted skin-care products our beauty editors can’t live without, and take our advice: No matter what type of skin you’ve got, they really are worth investing in for yourself—especially at these prices.
Best skin-care deals from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020
Shop Now: Fresh Soy Facial Cleanser, $38 ($53 value)
Now’s your chance to get your hands (and skin) on the cleanser that half of our editors swear by. It’s made with soy proteins, which are rich in amino acids to help maintain skin elasticity, cucumber extracts to soothe, and rosewater, which is known for its calming properties. Plus, it smells exactly like cucumber water, which makes it feel like a fancy spa treatment in a bottle.
Shop Now: Sunday Riley Good Genes, $114 ($178 value)
This multitasking serum has long been a cult-fave thanks to the gentle—yet effective—results it delivers. Highly potent lactic acid melts away dead skin cells to leave skin smooth, and licorice brightens and tightens to instantly do away with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This set (exclusive to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020) comes with a full and travel-sized version of the product, which means you’ll be able to have one with you everywhere you go.
