Clean beauty and non-invasive beauty treatments and tools are my thing.  Today, I want to share my Clean Beauty Favorites from the the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  Several of the products and tools I use every day and a few I’ve been wanting to try are a part of the #NSale!

GloPro – You can read about my love for this great product in this post.  It truly is the BEST beauty tool I own.  I keeps winning award after award.  I just got the eye attachment that is in the #NSale special edition and can’t wait to use it.  I also have the body attachment that I use with the body cream and am loving the results. This special GloPro collection contains: GloPRO Microneedling Regeneration Tool, Face MicroTip Attachment Eye MicroTip Attachment, Bright Eyes Illuminating Colloidal Silver + Collagen Eye Patches (10-pack) (LOVE THESE!!), Skin Prep Pad (5-pack), and the Quench Moisturizer.  Amazing value for these great products.  You can read about the entire line here.

NuFace – This tool is like getting an instant facial lift with out surgery.  It lifts and trains your facial muscles to be firm and taught.  You can read more about it in this post.  Definitely a must especially during the Nordstrom Sale.  I use this 2-3 times a week to fight sagging.

T3 hair dryer – I really need a new hair dryer so this one is at the top of my list.  I’ve heard great things about their products so I have this in my cart.

NeuLash – I’ve been wanting to try this and recently looked up the EWG rating (clean cosmetic database) and it shows to be a 3.  I’ve ordered some and will report back!  Thinking I’ll try the brow product as well.

I love the Chantecaille brand and have been a fan since the beginning 20 years ago.  Their products are paraben-free; sulfate-free; phthalate-free; mineral oil-free; petrolatum-free; palm oil-free; synthetic color-free; synthetic fragrance-free; GMO-free. I’m excited to try this botanical wrinkle-fighting, face firming system.

A great nude lip is my go-to and I can’t wait to try these clean glosses.  This fun collection has a color changing lip color.  My girls and I love this fun indie brand.  I was surprised that these were clean!  Such fun packaging and genius with the light and mirror …but then again, Karl is a genius.  I ordered 2 Kiss Me, Karl and St.-Germain-de-Pres because they are Buy 3 get 1 of them free.

This is a great time to switch out your make up brushesThis travel set would be perfect as a gift or for yourself!

Off to take my sweet pup to the vet for a check up. You may have seen her on this post.  She had a little accident while were were gone so we have to get her checked every day this week!  She’s a happy, active girl so it’s hard to keep her still so she can heal.  If you have any tips to keep a lab from wagging her tail, please pass them along!
