I thought I’d share what was in my 2nd order from the @nordstrom #anniversarysale 🌈🌈 @clinique has some new fragrances available. Since Happy & Happy ❤️ are some of my favorites I thought I’d give these a try. I chose Cocoa & Cashmere and Peony Picnic. Get a free gift (with a full size 🍉 lipstick) for cardholders with $28 purchase. If I like these I could see myself purchasing them all! 🌙🌙@esteelauder has an Advanced Night Repair + Renew value set available for the sale. I’ve recently been raving about how much I’ve noticed an improvement in my skin from using this consistently (with good genes). The serum is usually $98 by its self, for $1 more you get the set! I thought I could start dumping my minis into the bottle with the dropper. I’m currently using deluxe samples which I are to control and I’m wasting product I’m sure. There’s a free gift with $45 (use code DAY or NIGHT—I chose DAY) plus I added on a $10 product to get to $100 for the step up gift. 💓💓 @beautyblender has a blend.cleanse.carry value set for $35 that includes the new carrying case. I’m almost out of my cleansing solid and it’s the only thing I’ve tried that actually gets all of the foundation out of my Beautyblenders. I picked up the set & the solid to get the free gift at $45.
💔 there was a brand wide GWP that sold out on the first day that I was able to get. The step up didn’t ship with my order so I think I may have lost out on that one 😕

The Ordinary 100% L-Ascorbic Acid Powder -
Vitamin C is an effective antioxidant that brightens the skin tone and reduces the appearance of signs of aging. This formula offers a very fine L-Ascorbic Acid powder that visibly targets the appearance of uneven skin tone, dullness, and signs of aging and is formulated to be mixed with other treatments (except those containing Niacinamide or EUK 134). The format of this formula is a suspension of very fine L-Ascorbic Acid powder and, as such, provides the most direct exposure of extremely high concentrations of Vitamin C topically. With such format, a very strong tingling but non-irritating sensation is expected during the first 1-2 weeks of use until the skin's tolerance to such high exposure is elevated.
The Ordinary Resveratrol 3% + Ferulic Acid 3% -
This formula combines very high concentrations of two of the most powerful and important antioxidants in skincare: Resveratrol and Ferulic Acid. Resveratrol is a natural phenol found in several plants and our pure source is 100% derived from Japanese Knotweed. Ferulic Acid is a high-potency phytochemical antioxidant found naturally in walls of plant cells.
Skincare formulations generally incorporate Resveratrol at 1% or less and Ferulic Acid at 0.5% or less. This formula contains each at 3%, an exceptionally high concentration.

For our next series of 7 Questions we have @deciem Founder Brandon Truaxe!
1. What is your favorite product from your line?
This question is very difficult to answer because my love for some products is based on science, for some based on how they work for my skin and for some based on the unique experiences within our team that led to their development. Putting favouritism aside, NIOD CAIS, MMHC and SS are always in my regimen. From within The Ordinary, my priorities (in addition to my NIOD regimen) are Squalane and Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA.
2. What is your favorite product from someone else's line?
I love Aesop but not specifically their products. For me, Aesop is not a beauty brand but a brand that allows me to view the world from different perspectives through them. And that journey makes me love their products even when I disagree with their formulations.
3. What is your motto?
I have many but in the context of business what comes to mind is that the easiest thing to sell is the truth, but it always takes longer to sell it.
4 Dogs or Cats?
Dogs because I am like one.
5. One beauty trend you wish would go away.
I actually don't know what beauty trends are going around now. I don't pay attention to trends because by the time you notice them they are already history. One trend in the beauty business that will hopefully disappear is the use of advertising that talks about "clinical studies" that are gibberish at best.
6. What city has the most beautiful people?
The city that has the most people, because people are beautiful. Humanity and life at large should always be admired.
7. What advice would you give to 18 year old you?
The longest distance between two points is a shortcut.
