For shoppers nationwide, Nordstrom's annual Anniversary Sale is an event, an occasion and a thing of beauty. It's home to much temptation for beauty lovers among us, including extremely special, limited edition exclusives from pretty much every brand you might be pining for - think NARS, MAC, La Mer, Voluspa, YSL, Jo Malone, and so, so many others. I'm personally eyeballing the thoroughly psychadelic Clarisonic above, myself - my sink could use a colorful upgrade this summer.
Early access to the Anniversary sale starts this week - July 10th - for rewards members while the sale opens publicly on July 18th and runs through August 3rd - though the best goodies DO sell out - consider yourself warned! To get a Nordstrom Card and be granted that sweet, sweet early access, apply here.
Hi party peeps, hope you had good 4th of July weekend! The summer fun rolls on later this week, when Marina from Makeup Loves Me, NIVEA and I get together to talk all things summer beauty and style in a Twitter-exclusive chat this Thursday night. We'll be awarding special prizes from the Q10 Skin Firming collection, so be sure to tune in and take part - details below:
Let's be honest, guys. If you had told me four weeks ago that I'd be a-ok being seen on the internet without a full face of foundation, OR that the reason why was Proactiv+, I'd have thought you were joking. After all, as a woman with problem skin for years, who's tried it all and seen it all (really. I'm an #OG beauty blogger, countless brands are on my radar and at my fingertips), you kind of lose hope at a certain point that your skin will ever look flawless (or close to...after all, no one is truly flawless).
BUT after integrating both the core Proactiv+ 3-Step System (the Skin Smoothing Exfoliator is my jam in particular - I use daily in the shower) and a few supplemental treatments like the miraculous Mark Fading Pads (they WORK on pesky dark marks left behind from past blemishes) Emergency Blemish Relief and the Skin Purifying Mask, I'm feeling clearer, brighter (skin) and a healthy dose of skin confidence overall.
Given how expensive skincare can be, and how few products truly deliver, I'm happy to have found and to be able to recommend Proactiv+ for those of us with troubled, acne-prone skin. So happy, in fact, that I simply can't keep things to myself - I'm giving one more lucky reader a chance to win the core Proactiv+ 3-Step System, valued at $29.95. To enter, simply leave a comment below. I'll select a winner on Saturday, July 5!
