The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is happening right now and I've been all over it. If you haven't been able to shop yet with early access, the general sale, open to everyone, begins on July 20th.

I cannot get enough of the Nordstrom Anniversary Beauty Exclusives and deals that this annual sale has to offer.

As usual, I started by shopping (and sharing) the best beauty exclusives; now I am stocking up on skincare. I am really excited about the offerings and sets that the various brands have put together for this year's sale.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018: Top 10 Skincare Picks


Here my top ten skincare picks from the 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

1. Philosophy Purity Trio Set - $55
This cleansing and smoothing trio is always one of the first things that I ass to my shopping bag when shopping for skincare at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I love grabbing the SUPERSIZE Purity Made Simple One Step Facial Cleanser (which lasts the better part of a year) at such a great price; the 8 oz. cleanser is a bonus which I keep near my bathroom sink and I like adding the microdelivery exfoliating facial wash on occasion. $87 value

2. Clinique Pep-Start Duo - $19.50
Caci is a fan of the Clinique Pep-Start lineup of products for quick and efficient skincare and I've really liked the products that I've tried, too. This duo is something Caci uses regularly. The two-piece duo includes a two-in-one cleanser and eye cream that I have even liked to use in the warm weather months. $24.80 value

3. Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant Duo - $35
This leave-on liquid exfoliant is soooo effective for clear skin, and if you have skin that is even the tiniest bit oily, it is for you. I love that this beauty exclusive comes with a duo of this best-selling product. $58 value

4. Fresh Kissing Lip Kit - $32
I am addicted to Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment and I use the Sugar Lip Polish regularly; this kit is a no-brainer for everything that comes in it. Plus, who doesn't crave kissably smooth lips?

I can't wait for mine to be delivered! $47.50 value
