Despite my love of cheap price tags, there are certain areas in which one simply cannot cheap out. One of those areas is skin care; the older I get, the more I realize the value of taking good care of my skin. (Note to self: Build time machine, travel back to the days of “laying out to get a good base color,” and punch young self in face.)
And so I think you’ll understand me when I tell you that I always get a little excited about the Half-Yearly Women and Kids Sale at Nordstrom, anyway, but mostly it makes me happy because that’s when they offer a really sweet Clinique Bonus Offer. This year it’s particularly awesome: Spend $25 on Clinique, get $75 worth of goodies tucked into a Trina Turk cosmetics bag.
Because if you’re going to treat your skin well—and you should—there’s no reason why you can’t get yourself some extra goodies while you do it.
