Have we told you lately how much we love a good beauty sale? If not, here’s a reminder. There are certain beauty sales that we look forward to, and the 2021 edition of the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale sits high on the list. The sale kicked off on July 12, granting early access for Nordstrom cardholders with discounts on some of our favorite brands, including La Mer, Charlotte Tilbury, and one brand that we suggest snatching up every time it’s discounted: Kiehl’s.
Every year, Nordstrom offers extra-large versions of several Kiehl’s products, and this anniversary sale is no exception. The discounts are pretty significant, and better yet, the products are sized to last for the long haul, with jumbo-size options of some fan-favorite Kiehl’s skin- and body-care products waiting to make their way into your virtual shopping cart.
This year, several of the traditional extra-large bottles are now also available in generous refill pouches. Each one-liter pouch equals four regular-size bottles. While you’re shopping these, take a peek at some of other Kiehl’s items on sale, like the duos of the Body Scrub Soap, Facial Fuel Cleanser Set, and the Ultra Facial Cleanser Set.
Here are the top picks from the super-size selections that we suggest grabbing before it’s gone.
1. Creme de Corps
The iconic Creme de Corps formula has antioxidant-packed beta-carotene to protect skin against damaging free radicals while it softens dry skin. Plus, the convenient refill ensures that your pump bottle never runs on empty.
2. Midnight Recovery Concentrate
It’ll be tempting to not douse yourself in this bottle of Midnight Recovery Concentrate that’s more than double its original size, but you don’t actually need to. For starters, your skin is already working overtime to repair itself while you sleep, and just a few drops of this lavender-scented elixir, formulated with evening primrose and squalane oils, will assist with rehydrating dry skin and smoothing away fine lines over time.
4. Facial Fuel
Like the other pump bottles and refill pouches, the Facial Fuel Energizing Face Wash is a generous 33.8 ounces. Made with stimulating ingredients like caffeine and menthol, your face may be fully awake even before the rest of your body. That’s why we suggest washing up with this before your morning meetings.
5. Bath & Shower Liquid Body Cleanser “Grapefruit”
The hydrating heroes in the Bath & Shower Liquid Body Cleanser “Grapefruit” are a combination of hydrolyzed wheat protein and amino acid-derived humectants that help attract moisture to skin and lock it in. So even though you’re cleansing and getting rid of dirt and oils, you’re replenishing moisture in the process.
6. Body Fuel
If it isn’t already, this mega-sized Body Fuel is bound to be the star of your shower. It’s a multi-purpose hair and body wash that, similar to the facial formula, has caffeine and menthol to wake skin up. There’s also vitamin C in the mix, which is a helpful antioxidant that brightens dull skin and fades dark spots.
7. Amino Acid Shampoo
When combined with coconut oil, the amino acids in the Amino Acid Shampoo act as a cleansing agent. On its own, coconut oil is also highly hydrating. If you’ve been spending lots of time in the sun — or even in dry indoor air for that matter — your hair will appreciate the boost of hydration.
8. Amino Acid Conditioner
Top off wash day with an easy-to-dispense one-liter refill of the moisturizing Amino Acid Conditioner. Just like the shampoo, the conditioner is rich in amino acids that balance out your hair’s moisture levels, so that your strands are hydrated without feeling heavy or weighed down.
9. Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Face Mask
The Allure Best of Beauty-winning Rare Earth Deep Pore Minimizing Cleansing Clay Mask uses kaolin and bentonite clays to sop up excess oil and draw blackhead-encouraging dirt from pores. There is also aloe vera and glycerin in the formula to soothe and moisturize skin.
10. Grapefruit Hand & Body Lotion With Aloe Vera & Oatmeal
This two-in-one Grapefruit Hand & Body Lotion With Aloe Vera & Oatmeal will smooth over dryness all the way from your hands to your heels. As the name suggests, the formula is packed with soothing aloe vera and calming oatmeal, which is a double win, particularly if you have eczema-prone skin.
11. Grapefruit Liquid Hand Soap
If we’ve learned anything from the past year, it’s the importance of frequent hand-washing. If your 2020 stock of soaps is running low, this is the perfect time to replenish with this Grapefruit Hand Soap refill. The gentle formula clears away dirt using coconut-derived cleansers, and there’s moisturizing vitamin E to prevent dry out as you wash.
Shop the sale with early access now. Or if you prefer to wait, the general sale starts on July 28. You’ll have a full 11 days to get your shopping in before it all ends on August 8. We can’t guarantee that these items will last that long, so we strongly advise stocking up early since things sell out fast.
