When it comes to the best beauty deals of the year, Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2023 does not mess around. As a refresher, the fête kicks off on July 11 to certain cardmembers and ends on August 6. Here are the key dates to mark down so you know exactly when you can start shopping:
- July 3: Online preview begins (so you can start planning and bookmarking deals)
- July 11 to 16: Icon early access
- July 12 to 16: Ambassador early access
- July 13 to 16: Influencer early access
- July 17 to August 6: General access for all!
If you want to score early access, apply for a Nordstrom credit card asap. The retailer offers two types of cards, a retail credit card and Visa credit card, both of which provide the same benefits and are eligible for early access to the Anniversary Sale. While your cardmember status is dependent on yearly spend amounts, all cardmembers automatically start at Influencer status, which means you’ll get an extra four days to shop the sale before it opens to everyone.
Anyways, back to the sale. Why are we so pumped? Hundreds — if not thousands — of brands, including La Mer, Olaplex, Kiehl’s, MAC, Charlotte Tilbury, and Supergoop have been marked down at the mega-retailer. While inventories are typically high for this annual event, popular items are bound to sell out earlier rather than later — so it’s in your best interest to start bookmarking all of your favorite deals so that you can shop them the minute you have access.
Nordstrom also typically hosts Glam-Up Days — a.k.a. one-day-only flash deals that are marked up to 50 percent off — throughout the general access sale. We’ll keep you posted on these as they roll out starting July 17.
If you want to get a head start on shopping, there are plenty of beauty deals to pursue in the retailer’s regular sale section — and we took it upon ourselves to highlight some of the best ones we found. Scroll a little further down and you can take a look at the best deals from last year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale deals as you prepare for the 2023 edition.
Best Early Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2023 Beauty Deals
Editor’s note: As we previously mentioned, all of the deals from this point onwards were active in 2022 and might come back this year, so keep this page bookmarked!
Nordstrom is known for discounting jumbo-size skin-care products during the Anniversary Sale, like Kiehl’s popular Creme de Corps — so it’s a great time to stock up on your staples. It’s also a prime opportunity to try out some cool skin-care devices, like the Best of Beauty-winning NuFace Trinity, at a major discount.
La Mer is always one of the first brands to sell out, and who can blame them? We certainly can’t. The Radiant Hydration Set rings in at just under $100 and features four minis that comprise an entire skin-care routine, from cleanser to facial oil. Keen-eyed shoppers will notice the Endless Transformation Set features The Concentrate, which is actually the first time this specific product has been featured in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale — so grab it, stat.
If you’re a huge fan of Kiehl’s classic Crème de Corps like we are, then you’ll be jazzed to find out that the brand offers giant, one-pound refill pouches made with 81 percent less plastic packaging than the regular Crème de Corps bottle. Stock up and keep your skin feeling smooth as butter.
