Nordstrom has a special selection of items from every category during the sale. Some are marked down items (prices go back up August 6th), some items are Nordstrom exclusives made especially for sale time. In beauty they offer products and sets often exclusive to Nordstrom. They also have value sized products priced at lower price points. Often times expensive items beauty tools like simplehuman, Clarisonic, T3, Foreo are marked down to really good deal prices. The beauty department also has really good GWPs as well!
