This is not a drill: luxury skin-care (and hair-care) brand Augustinus Bader is officially making its Nordstrom Anniversary Sale debut this year. If you’re not familiar with the brand, here’s a quick rundown. Founded by famed German stem-cell scientist Augustinus Bader, the namesake brand has made a reputation out of creating and engineering luxury skin-care products that focus on repairing, healing, and improving the overall health of your skin.
For those on a budget, we have some bad news. But, for those who have a little discretionary income to spare and are on a quest to attain ridiculously dewy, smooth skin, we have a deal you absolutely can’t pass over.
The brand’s most popular offerings include The Rich Cream and The Cream, which will normally cost you $280 for a full-size (1.7 ounces) bottle. However, during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, you can score the Daily Essential Duo, which includes a full-size (1.7 ounces) and travel-size (0.5 ounces) bottle for $221, saving you a whopping $148 in the process. But don’t delay — after all, this is one of the hottest deals of the entire event.
In fact, just this year, The Rich Cream won a Readers’ Choice Award — so our readers also believe it’s worth the splurge. There are so few chances to save some dollars on Augustinus Bader, which goes to prove that this sale is a huge deal. Don’t sleep on it — take it from our editors, too.
“One pump in the morning and another each evening has made my skin gleam without the white cast other heavy creams tend to leave on my olive complexion,” editorial assistant Talia Guitierrez reported in her review. “I don’t use it under foundation, but I do use it religiously at night for calming my dry, irritated skin.”
As for me, commerce editor Sarah Han, I also credit The Rich Cream for reviving my dull complexion overnight, thanks to a patented blend of amino acids called Trigger Factor Complex (TFC8) — a fancy term for speeding up cell regeneration. Come morning, I wake up with the dewiest complexion, slap on some sunscreen, and start my day looking fresh-eyed.
