do you ever stand in front of a beauty counter and wonder which product to try? when your eyes scan the shelves, it looks as if there are two gazillion bottles lined up side-by-side. which one to choose? which one is better? what’s so special about this product? is one brand better than another? or are they all the same… confusing, i know. been there. done that. and now that many of us are strictly shopping online these days, picking out new skincare or makeup products can be overwhelming to say the least. and if i order online what about shipping? is it free? and better yet, do they offer free returns? don’t worry. i’ve got you covered today: here’s how you shop for skincare online.
well, hopefully, i can help with skincare selections. one favorite aspect of my job is testing out the latest and greatest in beauty products, makeup, skincare – the works. and there’s one retailer i can count on when it comes to carrying a vast selection of makeup, skincare, bath & body, fragrances, and hair care to choose from. yep, Nordstrom wins my vote every time. and Nordstrom also caters to men’s grooming & cologne, natural beauty & wellness, and tools brushes, and makeup bags. the NuFace Mini Facial Toning Device is a favorite of mine as it helps smooth lines around your eyes and lips. and i have my eye on a hanging makeup bag from Tumi. it would make a wonderful Christmas gift. hint, hint…

and Nordstrom carries all my favorite makeup brands. Ruby Woo is Mac’s best-selling red lipstick. lately, i’ve been loving Nudeies Bloom blush in Cherry Blossom. itCosmetics CC Cream is a-ma-zing. and Benefit Gimme Brow is a great eyebrow gel that looks natural.
how you shop for skincare online
shopping online allows me to scroll through new products or head straight to my favorite brands. today, i thought i’d check out what was new at Elemis, a beauty brand i know i can count on. it’s always fun to try something new. at least, something new to me like the Dynamic Resurfacing Facial Pads that acts as a gentle skin perfecting exfoliator. it’s perfect for all skin types.
everyone needs a little self-care in the shower and tub. what’s not to love about a luxurious salt scrub that sloughs off dead cells? Frangipani Monoi Salt Glow Scrub leaves my skin soft and glowing. and it smells heavenly!
a few of my favorite things about Nordstrom.
- free shipping and returns by mail or in store
- buy online pick up in store
- curbside pick up (no muss no fuss. Nordstrom brings your merchandise to you while you wait in your car)
- the Nordy club where you earn 1 point per dollar, status based on spend, and enjoy perks to beauty and style workshops, curbside pickup, and the first to shop select brands. sign up here.
and i love to pamper myself with a weekly mask. this week i thought a little TLC for my eyes were in order with Pro-Collagen Hydra-Gel Eye Mask that provides an instant skin-tightening effect. when the time comes, these will be perfect to throw in my travel bag.
and last but not least i tried Elemis Pro-Collagen Tri-Acid Peel with a trio of acids that exfoliates and hydrates.
a big thank you to Nordstrom and ShopStyle for this sponsored post. and thank you, lovely readers, for supporting the brands that allow me to bring you fresh ideas.
