19 Beauty Indulgences Worth Waiting For Any Time a Sale Comes Around
There are beauty things we'll pick up every time we go to the store — shampoo and conditioner, mascara, lip balm — and then there are big beauty purchases that we file away on our Sephora or Nordstrom wish list and reserve for major sales.
We're all for treating yourself to the major beauty item that you've been eyeing all year, but we also know that realistically, it's not always possible given the hefty price tag attached. Splurge-worthy things like hair tools, fancy face creams, designer makeup, and skin-care devices are worth every penny, but that doesn't mean you should pay full price for them — not with big annual sale events like Black Friday and Cyber Monday on the horizon.
Whether you've been wanting a Dyson Corrale since the day it launched or your best friend can't stop talking about the insane results they've gotten from the NuFace Toning Device, sales are the perfect time to act on the big-ticket wish-list items you've been dreaming of.
As you start to make your shopping list for the upcoming holiday events, we're sharing the best beauty items to buy on sale ahead.
La Mer Crème de la Mer Moisturizer
Our motto? Whatever Jennifer Lopez does for her skin, we want to do that. She's admitted she likes to slather herself from head to toe with the La Mer Crème de la Mer Moisturizer ($345), an ultrarich face cream that rescues dry skin.
Joanna Vargas Magic Glow Wand
It's coming from one of Hollywood's most sought-after aestheticians, so you know it's good: the Joanna Vargas Magic Glow Wand ($285) is an editor-loved beauty tool that has four different settings to target various skin-care concerns.
Dr. Barbara Sturm Glow Drops
You can trust that all of Dr. Barbara Sturm's products are dermatologist approved because, well, she is one. We especially stand by the Dr. Barbara Sturm Glow Drops ($145), which can help revitalize tired, dull-looking skin and leave your complexion looking radiant.
NuFace Trinity Facial Toning Device
If you want to prepare yourself for the post-Thanksgiving bloat, may we suggest the NuFace Trinity Facial Toning Device ($325)? It's a microcurrent tool that you can use to target puffiness and lines to visibly tone your face.
Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare DRx SpectraLite FaceWare Pro LED Light Therapy Device
LED light therapy is touted by skin-care experts for its ability to address different skin-care concerns depending on what color light you use. The Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare DRx SpectraLite FaceWare Pro LED Light Therapy Device ($435) can be worn while you walk around and do other things.
T3 Lucea ID 1" Smart Flat Iron With Touch Interface
A hair straightener that does all the work for you? That's what you get with the T3 Lucea ID 1" Smart Flat Iron With Touch Interface ($235), a new smart hot tool that automatically adjusts the heat to prevent excess damage to your hair.
Yves Saint Laurent Libre Eau de Parfum Spray
Fragrances are a special item that will last years, depending on how often you use them. The Yves Saint Laurent Libre Eau de Parfum Spray ($132) is a light floral scent that you can wear every day (and how often can you wear YSL for that price?).
