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 2022 edition of the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale sits high on the list. The general access portion of the sale (which is open to everyone and not just Nordstrom cardholders) kicked off on July 15, granting the public major discounts on some of our favorite brands, including La Mer, Augustinus Bader, 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-care, body-care, and hair-care products waiting to make their way into your virtual shopping cart.
This year, several products — including the famed Creme de Crops — are now also available in generous refill pouches. We did the math for you: each one-liter pouch equals four regular-size bottles, so you know it’s a great deal. Without further ado, here are our top picks from Kiehl’s lineup of supersize selections that we suggest grabbing ASAP.
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 regular pump bottle never runs on empty.
2. Midnight Recovery Concentrate
It’ll be tempting to not douse yourself in this jumbo 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.
3. Ultra Facial Jumbo Duo
Let’s get back to the basics. Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cleanser and Ultra Facial Cream are no-fuss, fragrance-free products that cleanse, replenish, and moisturize your skin without causing any irritation. The cleanser notably has emollients like apricot kernel oil and squalane to ensure your skin doesn’t feel stripped or tight after all of that dirt and excess oil has been swept away.
Follow up with the rich-yet-quick-absorbing cream, which is spiked with glacial glycoprotein (derived from sea glaciers) and olive-derived squalane, to fortify your skin’s barrier and restore moisture levels immediately and overnight.
4. Amino Acid Shampoo & Conditioner Refills
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.
