Pardon my absence from The #NotSponsored Series – our travel has been non-stop lately. But I’m happy to report that we’re stateside and back to regularly programmed series! Since the Nordstrom Sale is in full force (and it happens to be one of my favorite sales), I thought it was perfect timing to kick things off. While all of these items are from Nordstrom, none of this is sponsored. These are simply 10 beauty products I love from the department store – and where I buy a lot of my beauty, actually. I know the entire sale can be a bit overwhelming, so I like to focus on one or two areas, and this time I’m all about restocking all things beauty. Read on to see 10 products that I’m obsessed with at incredible prices.

Eyebrow serum

Big brows are here, and they’re here to stay. If you aren’t blessed with naturally thick brows, don’t fret, this product (2 for 1!) is all you need. It takes a couple weeks and then your brows are sure to grow in thicker and more lush. Game changing, especially if you don’t like wearing makeup daily.

Lavender Neck Pillow

Maybe a neck pillow doesn’t come to mind as a beauty product, but from one jet setter to the next, it surely is! I credit ample sleep on a plane to staying fresh and looking my best when I arrive to my destination. It makes all the difference in the world when you travel often. And this my sweets, will help you do just that.

Body moisturizer

There are a billion body lotions out there, and yet I keep coming back to this product by Kiehl’s. It’s thick but absorbs quickly and can do wonders for dry skin. Love, love, love!

Hand cream

Speaking of moisture, I can’t talk about hydration without mentioning Ahava hand cream. You guys know I’m a big fan of this brand, and their hand cream is no joke. So good.

Beach wave wand

This magical wand is the only curling iron I’ll use on my short locks (otherwise I’ll use a straightner to “curl”). If I want those lived in, Victoria’s Secret type waves, this wand is what I reach for. It’s beyond easy to use and delivers effortless hair without overdoing it like traditional curling irons do. More hair tips, here.

Silk pillowcase

Again, sleep is crucial for beauty, babes! If you aren’t on the silk pillowcase train yet, I highly recommend getting on. It’s gentle on your hair and skin and leads to less breakage, wrinkles, and aging. This set is such a great price, too. P.S. Read about all my anti-aging tips here.


While I’m a big fan of facials (my mama is an esthetician after all), I don’t always have time for one. Whether traveling or dealing with something like fashion week, I rely on this exfoliant by Kate Somerville to keep my skin looking glowy and smooth. I use it a couple of times a week and voila!

Oribe travel set

This sale is a fabulous time to stock up on quality travel sized products, so you know I’m buying a few of these Oribe sets. If you know about Oribe, then you know.

Face roller

It took me a while to finally try out a face roller and now I’m 100% hooked. This Nurse Jamie option is insane for depuffing after too much vino or too little sleep and it’s a great detoxifier. I use it from my forehead all the way down my neck and move in gentle by firm upward strokes.

Body Glow & Perfume Oil

Ahhhh heaven! Just trust me here. This Kai set is divine and made with essential oils, which I appreciate. I wear this year-round when I want to smell fresh, and I get endless compliments.

There you have it, 10 products I truly can’t live without, all on sale at an amazing price. Don’t wait – they’ll sell out quick. Shop all below!

Great recommendations! I never shop beauty at Nordstrom but I should check it out. So many brands that aren’t available at my usual – Sephora.


They’re definitely my favorite for the brands listed <3

I’m so glad to see a curling iron for short hair! I’ve had to do away with my curling wand since I chopped off my locks and curling with a straightener has been more of a learning curve than I anticipated. haha.

Also, that hat/shirt combo is everything!


yes, think you’ll love this one sweets!

Thanks again for telling me about Oribe! My hair looks prettier than ever. I just got the mini hairspray. It’s so adorable and it fits all my bags.
Ps. Are you wearing your mini hairspray in your Nile bag too?

I’ve always wanted to try Oribe! It’s so pricey so definitely will check it out.


great time to score it babe! xx

It’s definitely worthy of a price. My hair is completely transformed now. My squad noticed the difference after my first wash.


Love the trousers and the hat in this look! So fresh and summery <3

Love your selection of beauty products, and agree that this is the perfect time to restock the beauty favorites we truly love. Beauty aside, your outfit is just breathtaking!

thank you love! hope you are stocking up as much as I am, ha! 🙂

I need a silk pillowcase and I really want to try a face roller!


you won’t regret. so goooood.

I haven’t heard of this brand before for the brow product you mentioned but I’m intrigued to try it out. I except thicker and fuller brows with arms open wide! Also, since this product is like a two in one, I suspect it’s perfect for traveling. Hmmm, now you’ve got me thinking I should get it! I love the way you styled this Zimmermann top too. Since it’s quite cropped, the high waisted trousers you’re wearing are perfect because it allows for not too much stomach to be shown. Beautiful picture too Jenny xx


it’s sooooo good! i can’t rec that brow brand enough. xx
