12 dermatologist picks to shop during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale
Fresh Rose Skin Care Set — $72.00
Worth $103, now $72
“This is a hyaluronic acid-packed moisturizing set that will thoroughly hydrate the skin,” says Ivy Lee, MD, a board-certified dermatologist in Pasadena, California. “The toner and face mask can be stored in the refrigerator—kitchen or skin-care fridge—and used as a refreshing and cool treat for your skin during the hot summer months.”
PoshPeel Pedi Cure 3-Pack Set — $37.00
Worth $60, now $37
“I like this easy-to-use exfoliating treatment with AHA and BHAs, alpha hydroxy and beta hydroxy acids, that will pamper the feet for all those barefoot summer days—or extend those sandal days year-round,” says Dr. Lee.
Clarins Double Serum Set — $197.00
Worth $297, now $197
“Rich in plant extracts, this serum helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles as well as hydrate and smooth the skin,” says Marisa Garshick, MD, a board-certified dermatologist in New York City. “It can be used one to two times daily and can be applied after cleansing or toning, prior to applying the rest of the skincare routine.”
Charlotte Tilbury Magic Eye Rescue Cream — $83.00
Worth $124, now $83
“Using a time-released retinol, this eye cream helps to improve the overall texture of the skin,” says Dr. Garshick. This hydrating eye cream soothes the skin while improving the appearance of puffiness.
Trish McEvoy Eye Brightening Duo — $60.00
Worth $82, now $60
If you’re looking to brighten your under eyes but aren’t quite ready to commit to in-office treatments, Dr. Hirsch recommends this concealer duo, which camouflages darkness and discoloration of the eyelid.
Kiehl’s Facial Fuel Moisturizer Set — $56.00
Worth $84, now $56
“This hydrating moisturizer contains antioxidants and feels lightweight on the skin,” says Dr. Lee. “It’s a wonderful gateway product to build a community of men who moisturize (MWM). This product is for all genders but the labeling and marketing is targeted toward men.
Nu Face Trinity Facial Toning Kit — $199.00
Worth $339, now $199
“This microcurrent device is FDA-cleared and helps to tone facial muscles and improves the overall contour and appearance of the skin,” says Dr. Garshick. “It comes with the gel primer and can help to rejuvenate the skin and improve skin laxity.”
La Mer Radiant Hydration Set — $95.00
Worth $155, now $95
“This is a well-rounded travel set focused on hydration,” says Dr. Lee. “I rarely use all four steps of this set. The cleansing foam is a daily must. For more humid climates, I’ll just add the renewal oil as a morning and evening moisturizing layer. For drier climates or during the winter season, I would then add the treatment lotion and-or moisturizing cream.”
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Essentials Palette — $68.00
“You can glow as if you’ve been kissed by the sun without the DNA damage,” says Dr. Hirsch, with this limited-edition Nordstrom-exclusive palette. It includes a finishing powder, blush, and bronzer that leave your skin with a lit-from-within luminosity.
La Prairie Skin Caviar Luxury Ritual Set — $970.00
Worth $1,540, now $970
“If you’re already a fan of these creams and serums or have been wanting to try, getting this set during this sale provides a great discounted value,” says Dr. Garshick. “This collection rejuvenates, lifts and firms the skin using caviar extract.”
