Chatting all about the best beauty deals in this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I have tried so many different products that are included, so I wanted to share my thoughts on those today as well as a quick list of the beauty items on my wishlist.

Most of the beauty items in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale are deluxe sizes and special edition kits, so if you have favorites you already know and love it’s a great time to stock up and save! There are also a lot of higher-end skincare and beauty brands in the sale that rarely go on sale. Let’s dive into my favorites, as well as some products I would personally pass on.

Benefit Gimme Brow

This is a product I’ve repurchased multiple times, and I don’t recall it being in the sale before! It’s great for quick natural makeup days when you just want to swipe some color into your brows.

Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk

This has been a go-to color of mine for 4 years! It’s a beautiful natural nude-pink that isn’t too brown or colorful on fair skin tones. I also use the liner, too!

Tula Everyday Glow Set

I know Tula gets a lot of hype in the influencer space, but it’s been one of my holy-grail face cleansers since 2016. I always go back to it at some point! It’s gentle on my sensitive skin and doe a really good job removing your makeup if you use it as a double cleanser at night. I used this a few years ago when I had horrible cystic acne after going off birth control and it’s what helped my skin finally clear up!

Neulash Lash Enhancing Serum

I’ve used this product off and on for years, and it works! You have to be consistent with it for 8 weeks before you really start noticing a difference, and after 12 weeks you will have fuller, longer, and more lifted lashes! Leave it out on your counter to apply before bedtime to get it into your night routine.

Elemis Cleansing Balm

This is a cult favorite for a reason! It’s such a luxurious way to remove all your makeup. Double cleansing is so important on days when you’re wearing makeup to make sure you’re properly cleansing your skin. This is a balm that melts away your makeup without stripping the skin.

Elemis Dynamic Resurfacing Face Wash

This is a very gentle chemical exfoliating cleanser, meaning there are no harsh scrubs inside but it chemically resurfaces the skin. When I’ve used this, I noticed visibly smoother and brighter skin texture.


Kiehls Body Lotion

This is an old-time favorite in the sale that I usually repurchase every year. Tim uses it too! I like to use this before self-tanning in really dry areas so I don’t get any uneven patches in those areas. I like that it doesn’t have an overpowering scent or anything like that, and it’s very hydrating!

Donna Karan Deodorant

This is a product I discovered in the sale 7 years ago and I haven’t found anything to beat it since. The product lasts forever too. I find myself only going through maybe 2 a year if that. You can honestly forget to apply the next day and it will still keep you smelling good 😉

OSEA Anti-Aging Body Balm

I worked with OSEA a few months ago to share this product and I fell in love with it! I plan to purchase this set in the sale. It’s such a unique body moisture.. sort of a hybrid between a lotion and oil (hence the name balm I guess!). It’s very moisturizing and the scent is very spa-like. It’s a luxurious product to add to your body skincare routine!

St. Tropez Self Tanner

This is a very natural self-tanner for fair skin tones. It has an olive-based skin tone which will prevent you from looking orange. My only complaint with it is it doesn’t stay dark for very long and I want to reapply it twice a week to maintain a deeper color. I always prefer an express formula since it can work quicker if I’m in a pinch. However, I usually always sleep with it on overnight efore showering because I get a deeper color when I do.

Necessaire Body Cleanser

I’ve used both this scent and the fragrance-free body cleanser in the past. I really like the twist cap and it’s a clean beauty product to add to your rotation.


Dyson Airwrap

I have a very detailed review and comparison of the Dyson Airwrap I would recommend reading before making this splurge. Long story short I LOVE mine, but if you don’t have the right expectations you may be disappointed with the product. Dyson Airwraps are hard to keep in stock these days, so I would imagine this is going to be a pretty quick seller in the sale since it’s on sale.

GHD Soft Curl

The last few months I’ve been avoiding heat styling my hair as much as possible to help it get as healthy as possible. But when I do need to curl it, that has been my go to as of late! It has a larger 1/25 inch barrel, so you get very soft curls with it.

T3 SinglePass® 1.25-Inch Ceramic Curling Iron

I was gifted this from the brand and it’s honestly not my favorite. Not that the product doesn’t work well.. but I absolutely hate the touchscreen power button. You have to hold it down for a while and guess where it is on the barrel. Don’t get me wrong I love my convertible wands and curling irons from T3, but I just don’t love the single-pass curling iron or straightener because of the touch-screen buttons. The pro of the SinglePass is there is a lot more customization and control with the heat settings.

Silk Pillow Case

I have and love these pillow cases, but you can honestly get something very similar on Amazon these days. There is a quality difference between the type of silks.. but would you be able to pick which was which…? Probably not.

Living Proof Shampoo and Conditioner

I’ve used this product off and on through the years! It’s a great everyday shampoo and conditioner and I do feel like my hair can go a while between washes.
