Just when you think all the big sales of the year are over, another one pops up. Yes, it’s that time of the year again: The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is finally here. Well, at least the Early Access is.
Since the sale was announced, over at Teen Vogue we’ve been eyeing the preview of amazing deals and perfecting our (and your) wish list. If you’re a general Nordstrom cardholder, you can start collating everything you’re coveting in your cart as early as July 16 to score it before it sells out — because that’s inevitable.
If you want to get ahead of the curve and start shopping before the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale officially opens up to the public from July 28 to August 8, we have good news for your wallet – or bad, depending on how you look at it! Signing up for a card membership is now free so you’ll be more than ready to snag your must-haves easily! We love to see a good hack!
With amazing deals from some of our favorite fashion brands like Nike and Ugg and beauty brands like La Mer and NuFACE to plenty of home goods, we’ve rounded up the sale items Teen Vogue editors are actually buying.

Paula’s Choice Jumbo Size Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant
Do not go skin care shopping when you’re on your period and breaking out because you just want to buy everything. This doesn’t feel impulsive though because I always see this in people’s empties roundups on social and it receives quite the praise in the reviews section of the product. Looks like it is on sale is the sign I needed to finally give it a go for myself.
Kiehl’s Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Face Mask
The pandemic brought me TikTok and TikTok brought me Tinx. I feel like she’s my BFF even though we have never met. She has been talking a lot about this mask in her stories lately and the girl has already influenced me to buy the protein bars she eats and listen to her Spotify playlists so I am definitely throwing this into the cart.

Zella Live In High Waist Leggings
Although we’re still stuck in the heat of the summer, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has always had me looking forward to fall. It’s been a while since I’ve updated my legging stash, so these highly-coveted Lululemon dupes will be in my cart this year as I look forward to running all through fall.
Stila Full Size Stay All Day® Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner Set
This is my holy grail eyeliner. This bestie has stayed on through anything from runs to getting caught in the rain to (honestly) a good cry session. If you want an easy-to-apply liner that will get you through anything life throws at you, this is the one!
Bombas Ankle Socks
I don’t know about you, but I’m always losing socks. The ones I have left are looking sad and thin, so I’m looking forward to stocking up on the basics during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I love these Bombas socks in particular because I can use them for both running and everyday comfort, with any sneaker or boot.

Le Labo Santal 26 Set of 3 Concrete Votives
My boyfriend absolutely loves the scent of Santal 26 and it’s also his go-to scent to spritz after cleaning the apartment. However, he goes off while spritzing and it can be a little too intense for a small NYC apartment. That’s why I’m buying this small but mighty candle set, so each candle can fill up our place with its scent without me sneezing every two seconds. Plus, the concrete jars are great to repurpose when you finish burning your candle!
Adidas Originals Wide Leg Track Pants
It seems like buying Adidas track pants during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale has become a habit of mine. Last year, I bought a pair of yellow Adidas D. Cathari Track Pants – and was incredibly surprised with how fast the shipping was. While yellow track pants are a statement in of itself, I regretted not buying the black ones so this year I’m pulling the trigger. And how could I not when they are $52?!?!?!

Sarto by Franco Sarto Etna Waterproof Bootie
I’ve been scouring the internet for a good white boot that doesn’t break the bank (but that looks like it could have) because let’s be real about how quickly I’ll run these to the ground in the city. These do just that for me.
Nécessaire Full Size The Body Wash & The Body Lotion Set
This is a must-have that feels like an investment. It’s always good to have a body wash on hand, so why not make it Nécessaire?
Franco Sarto Stevie Bootie
I’m really out here prepping for the Fall/Winter season by adding these (in either brown or green) to my cart, too.

Le Labo Jumbo Hinoki Hand Soap
I’m going to be buying this because: 1) It is my favorite hand wash ever in Jumbo Size (!!!!), 2) I despise the chore of buying hand wash every few months.
Tata Harper Skincare Resurfacing Mask Mix & Mask Set
I’m also purchasing this because I love the Tata Harper range (natural! good! clean!) and this set lets me mix and match my skin needs depending on the day.
