Presidents’ Day may not be the most glamorous of holidays but, for many, it means a three-day weekend and finding some sweet deals. Many brands and stores are offering discounts throughout the entire weekend leading up to Monday, including some of our most-frequented sites like Nordstrom, Ulta Beauty, and Sephora.
To help you nab the best beauty deals on makeup, hair products, skin care, and more, we’ve rounded up the best and brightest that you (and your wallet) simply can’t miss out on. Make sure to bookmark this page to stay up-to-date on all the amazing beauty and lifestyle deals we find as they come in.
Best Presidents’ Day Skin Care Deals 2022
Now onwards: Nordstrom is rolling out the presidential deals well in advance this year. How do we know? The beauty sale section is popping with discounts of up to 60 percent off (that’s not a typo, folks) on editor-beloved brands like Herbivore, Shiseido, and Peter Thomas Roth. As usual, there are no promo codes involved and discounts are taken automatically in cart. Shop away and refresh practically every step of your beauty routine.
February 19 to 21: If you’re a BlueRewards member (PSA: It’s free to sign up!) and your shopping cart adds up to $150 or more, you can snag 15 percent off your purchase with promo code FAB15. This event features coveted, rarely-discounted brands like Augustinus Bader, Olaplex, and Dyson. Just be sure to note the exclusions as well, which include spa services, gift cards, Mason Pearson products, Mystery Boxes, and Bluemercury exclusive sets.
Now onwards: Sephora’s sale section is akin to a treasure trove of products that seem too good to be labeled with hefty discounts — but since they are, you’re essentially obligated to stock up on some goodies. Our top picks include a moisturizer-suncare hybrid from Origins and a three-piece Fresh kit that will seriously boost the radiance of your skin.
Now onwards: We’re in peak winter moisturizer season and Ulta Beauty’s got the memo, because major steals from Peter Thomas Roth and IT Cosmetics are abundant in the e-retailer’s vast sale section. Treat your skin to intense hydration and pampering.
February 20 to 26: While sunscreen might not be top of mind right now (even though, news flash, you should absolutely be wearing sunscreen all year round), Bliss is ensuring your complexion stays protected, no matter what elements your skin is dealing with. Stock up the brand’s breakout Block Star Invisible Daily Sunscreen, which is spiked with SPF 30, rosa canina fruit oil to curb excess oil production, and a pore-blurring tint for barely-there coverage. Both Target and Ulta Beauty are hosting buy one, get one 50 percent off promotions through (and beyond) the long weekend. (The prices listed above reflect the price of each sunscreen if you buy two at once.)
February 15 to 22: SkinStore rarely disappoints with its sales, and its Presidents’ Day offerings are no exception. Beauty devotees can save up to 50 percent off premium brands like Elemis, T3, Dermalogica, Slip, and more — no code needed. It’s almost too easy.
Now onwards: Whether you’re looking to indulge in a Best of Dermstore Kit (which are up to 65 percent off right now!) or just interested in adding one new product to your self-care regime (like a pair of cooling ice globes), Dermstore’s got you covered. Take your time browsing the sale section because you won’t want to miss gems from Epionce, Patchology, and Replenix.
February 21: For one day only, the promo code TAKE15 will score shoppers 15 percent off sitewide at lancerskincare.com. Anything goes, so consider your skin-care routine preemptively upgraded.
Best Presidents’ Day Makeup Deals 2022
February 16 to 18: In celebration of National Lash Day, which is arguably just as big as Presidents’ Day in the minds of beauty editors, Sephora is offering a buy one, get one 50 percent off promotion on all full-size mascaras. While your options are incredibly vast, a tried-and-true favorite of ours is the Readers’ Choice–winning Limitless Lash Mascara, while a newer favorite is Caliray’s Come Hell or High Water Tubing Mascara, which fans out lashes with ease and only takes a bit of warm water to remove.
Anastasia Beverly Hills
February 18 to 21: If you’re on the hunt for a waterproof, superfine brow product that won’t let you down (yes, oddly specific, we know), you’ll definitely want to buy Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Brow Pen while it’s 30 percent off on anastasiabeverlyhills.com, sephora.com, and ulta.com.
February 17 to 21: While there’s no straightforward discount, E.l.f.’s selection is filled with affordable gems as is. One of the drugstore darling’s newest collections is as dreamy and delectable as it sounds. Meet the 13-piece Cookies N’ Dreams collection, which is stocked with sweet-scented Putty Primers, Eyeshadow Palettes, Lip Exfoliators, and more. And as the literal cherry on top of this beauty sundae, Beauty Squad Members (E.l.f’s free-to-sign-up rewards program) get free shipping on all orders.
February 18 to 20: The lash party continues with W3LL people offering shoppers 25 percent of all mascaras sitewide. Not that we’re biased at all, but the Expressionist Volumizing Mascara took home a Best of Beauty Award in 2020, making it our top pick.
Best Presidents’ Day Lifestyle/Home Deals 2022
February 18 to 21: Fill your home with lovely scents courtesy of By Rosie Jane candles, which are all marked 30 percent off for a few days only (no code needed). Leila Lou is a perfect option if you’re a fan of pear, jasmine, and fresh-cut grass.
