The most anticipated Nordstrom Anniversary Sale kicks off today with early access to credit and debit card holders from July 14 to 21. Here are my top recommendations (specific reviews are linked as necessary):
Clarisonic Mia White Sonic Cleansing System, $89 (after sale $129). This product gently loosens dirt and oil which helps clear pores, reduce oily areas and dry patches.
Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue EDT Set, $104 (after sale $147). A great scent year-round, this fragrance brings back fun memories of my not-so-distant youth. Notes: citron, lemon, bluebell, Granny Smith apple, jasmine, rose, bamboo, cedarwood, amber, musk.
Foreo Luna Anti-Aging Device for Combination Skin, $126 (after sale $169). The silicone bristles gently cleanses the face and the low frequency pulsations reduce visibility of fine lines. The power is infinite, I still haven’t charged it since reviewing it July last year!
Yves Saint Laurent Rebel Nudes Set, $72 ($108 value). It features 3 full-size products: Rouge Volupté Shine Oil-in-Stick Lipstick in 47 Beige Blouse (0.15 oz.), Rouge Pur Couture Vernis a Levres Glossy Stain in 07 Corail Aquatique (0.06 oz.), Plump Up Glossy Stain in 200 Plump Up (0.06 oz.)
