    So to help you score a great deal, we've rounded up some of the bestselling (and reviewer-loved) items that are on sale *right now*.

    1. Zella's "Live-In" high-waisted leggings over 5,000 people gave five-star reviews for, thanks to their moisture-wicking fabric, stay-in-place waistband, and soft, brushed material.


    Price: $39.90 (originally $59; available in sizes XXS–XL; sizes 1X–3X listed separately here)

    Promising review: "Hands down the best leggings ever. Buy them yearly at Anniversary sale. My mom also buys them. She’s 5’3” 120 and wears an XS. I’m 5’3” and usually 140, i wear the small. I’m currently 160 and 23 weeks pregnant and the small still fits, very snug. Got the maternity version [editor's note: also part of the Anniversary sale} now. Every year i get the different colors and they never disappoint. You need these for year round!" —RedAllieKat

    Nordstrom reviewers LOVE the entire Zella line (and so do several of my BuzzFeed Shopping colleagues), and they have a BUNCH of great things on sale right now — you can check them all out here!

    2. A jumbo bottle of Kiehl's beloved Creme de Corps body moisturizer to keep your skin flake-free and hydrated all year round with its antioxidant-rich blend — looking at you, dry winter skin.

    The large pump bottle

    Price: $49 (originally $80; valued at $96)

    Promising review: "I'm Irish and we have DRY skin. I began using Creme de Corps approximately seven (7) years ago and will NEVER use any other product again. I used to itch and scratch my legs in the winter months and my cuticles would be awful, as well. Well, not anymore. I love how my skin has transformed since using this product. Also, I receive so many compliments on how soft my skin is . . . no lie, people have asked if they could touch my shoulder because my skin looked so soft. This product will be with me till the end! Big LOVE to Creme de Corps. It has transformed my skin!" —Diff1

    3. An unbelievably plush throw blanket with a chunky braided fringe that'll look gorgeous on your couch *and* feel gorgeous when you're cuddled under it for 137 days straight this winter.

    The blanket in dark teal blue

    Price: $24.90 (originally $39.50; available in eight colors)

    Promising review: " I have bought eleven of these blankets! Six of them are in my home because we all fight over them. The other five I bought as gifts. I bought seven last year during the anniversary sale & four more this year. I have washed them over & over & they are still super soft. I will say that you might not want to use a dryer sheet with them. I had one stick to one of my blankets. I can't say enough good things about these blankets! They are the BEST!" —Rose0614

    4. A threee-pack of Nordstrom brand boxer briefs so you can stock up on some super-comfy Supima cotton basics. The question "boxers or briefs?" So yesterday.

    Flatlay of the grey and blue boxer briefs

    Price: $22.90 (originally $34.50; available in men's sizes S–2X and in a all-black and blue & grey stripe multipack)

    Promising review: "My husband loves these. Superior cotton and construction make all the difference. We always purchase extra when on sale. Definitely worth it." —MariGK

    5. A bottle of Paula's Choice 2% BHA liquid exfoliant all of your favorite skincare TikTokers swear by to unclog pores and even out skin tone — and in a jumbo size deal (exclusive to this sale) that saves you money.

    The bottle and box exfoliant

    Price: $39 (valued at $59)

    Promising review: "This stuff is magic in a bottle. I had purchased the travel size and noticed a difference in my skin after one week. Using it every other day worked well for me. It took me about two months to finish it and I wasn’t able to purchase the full size immediately. My wallet was telling me no, but my skin was having none of it. A few weeks later my skin was back to its old terrible ways — closed comedones, redness, uneven skin tone, pores the size of moon craters, the whole 9 yards. I have learned my lesson and will never be without this stuff." —Kayleah

    6. A classic faux leather moto jacket, because this is truly a closet staple you'll wear alllll the time *and* at a great price.


    Price: $56.90 (originally $98; available in sizes XS–XL and in dark orange)

    Promising review: "Pick it up now! Amazing!! I picked up a size medium. If you are between sizes, I would recommend sizing up. Honestly this was wonderfully made — could not recommend enough!!" —sweetcinnamon

    7. A True & Co v-neck, racerback bralette that I personally swear by — it is SO COMFY I've often forgotten I'm wearing it, and it makes a great layering piece under sheer tops or blazers.

    Model in the fuller bust bra in black

    Price: $37.90 (originally $58; available in sizes XS–XL and fuller bust sizes XS–M)

    Promising review: "This bra is super comfortable. I was thinking it would be great for just a lounging around the house type of bra but have found it is supportive enough to wear any time. Does not ride up and the cups fit as they should." —steward1990

    8. A Diptyque mini candle set so you can "test-drive" the brand's iconic and super popular scents before investing in a larger size. And though they may be small, they're mighty!

    The set of five candles in a row with labels on the front that say what the scents are

    The set includes a Baies candle (berries and rose scents), Feu de Bois candle (wood smoky scents), Figuier candle (tree and fig scents), Narguile candle (honey, tobacco, and spices scents), and a Roses candle (floral rose bush scents).

    Price: $55 (valued at $75)

    Promising review: "I love this set and will absolutely repurchase again! Diptyque candles smell so good and are such a nice little luxury item. I broke this up and used them as gifts. Great value!" —PeaceofReese

    9. A Tory Burch tote that's *over $200 off* and has room for eeeeverything you need to bring with you in its large two main pockets, plus zipper and wall pockets.

    Black tote with gold hardware and gold Tory Burch logo

    Price: $299.90 (originally $528)

    Promising review: "Of course you don’t have to be a mom to appreciate this beautiful bag. But being a mom of a 17 month old it’s nice to have a stylish bag that fits my personal belongings (wallet, phone, mask, sunglasses) and my son's (diapers, wipes, water bottle). He’s no longer an infant and I don’t feel I always need the big diaper bag. It’s not heavy on my shoulder, it holds its shape. It looks really good. It was a gift from husband. This is the wifey writing the review." —Daniel244

    10. A Northface insulated jacket with a plush lining and water-repellent finish so you can stay toasty warm without having to pull out one of those giant winter coats. Or for extra frigid days, layer it underneath!

    Model in the black quilted hooded jacket with side pockets

    Price: $119 (originally $169; available in men's sizes S–XXL and in navy)

    Promising review: "Bought this jacket as a Christmas gift for my boyfriend and he absolutely loves it. He has worn it every day since I gave it to him and he loves to layer it with a hoodie underneath. The cedar brown is a great color and the quality of the jacket and stitching is superior." —StefShley

    11. A pair of Spanx faux leather leggings for a comfy way to add a little hint of extra cool to your sweater-and-leggings outfits, whether you're at home or on a walk with friends.

    Model in the black leggings

    Price: $64.90 (originally $98; available in sizes XS–XL)

    Promising review: "I LOVE LOVE LOVE these leggings!!!! I read some comments that they run small... I would say they run pretty true to size. They’re so comfortable and I’m so happy with them... I’ll probably order more so I can have a few pair! A def need in your wardrobe!" —BerkeleySoul

    12. A small aromatherapy diffuser that *won't* take up a lot of your precious space, but *will* fill your room with a lovely scent from your favorite essential oil.

    The small diffuser sitting on a table with mist coming out of the top and a battery pack sitting next to it

    Price: $14.90 (originally $29.99; available in green and white)

    Promising review: "I really like this little diffuser! I use it in my office, and it's great in a relatively small space. I already bought a second one as a gift! Planning to take it with us on a trip soon — it's super simple to use, low maintenance, and runs for a long time on a relatively small amount of water." — KelseyLBC

    13. A set of menswear-inspired, soft 'n' stretchy pajamas with stylish piping so you can sleep in them, lounge in them, and maybe even join a Zoom call in them?? Up to you.

    Model in the blue PJs with white piping on the top

    Price: $39.90 (originally $65; available in sizes S–L and four colors and patterns)

    Promising review: "Bought these last year at the sale and couldn’t wait to buy more this year! They hold up wash after wash and are my new go-to PJs! Fits true to size" —AprilAtlanta

    14. A fluffier-than fluffy quarter-zip pullover sure to become your fall grocery run go-to...and your dog walking go to...and your all-around cozy go-to.

    Model in the furry fleece pullover in grey

    Price: $45.90 (originally $78; available in sizes XS–L and three colors)

    Promising review: "I love this brand. This pullover is my go to during the colder months. Super soft and comfortable. I have washed it many times and the material holds up well. Must buy!" —R3D3

    15. A pair of three-carat cubic zirconia studs you'll wear just about every day — they're a classic for a reason!

    The three-prong studs

    Price: $26.90 (originally $48; available in gold and platinum finishes)

    Promising review: "A classic stud that everyone needs in their jewelry box! The size is perfect too! Not too big for others to question if they are real or not. Grab these during the annv sale while you can!" —LishB

    Model in the grey bra with white trim

    Promising review: "I’m a 36DDD and have tried a lot of sports bras. This one is by far the best. The fabric is so soft, super comfortable, and because it’s double lined, my boobs didn’t move an inch. Will absolutely be buying more of these." —sakinac

    17. A two-pack of Slip silk pillowcases to help you wake up with damage-free, less tangled hair every morning — and they're gentler on your skin, too!

    The box with two blush pillowcases

    Price: $125 (valued at $178)

    Promising review: "These pillow cases are incredibly soft and luxurious! I notice far fewer baby hairs in my pillow... I tend to dig my hair around, especially at my hairline while sleeping and was loosing and roughing up my hair. Huge improvement, I’ll never go back to cotton." —MCRee

    18. A pair of waterproof, cushioned Blondo booties so if you get caught in the rain or sleet, you can still stay stylish and not worry about your go-to boots getting ruined.

    The black suede boots with a western-style stacked low heel

    Price: $69.90 (originally $149.95; available in sizes 5.5–12, medium and wide, and three colors)

    Model in the open-front cardi in red

    Price: $59.90 (originally $98; available in sizes XS–XXL and three colors)

    Promising review: "This wasn’t a cardigan I planned to buy but i saw it at the store in this amazing color and fell in love. It’s soft and oversized but not frumpy. Love it! I would recommend sizing down" —AprilAtlanta

    20. A pair of metallic kids' Uggs to keep their feet toasty warm all winter and add a little ~sparkle~, whether there's snow on the ground or not.

    The set, with a raised lattice pattern

    Price: $90.90+ (originally $99+; available in sizes twin–king and in grey)

    Promising review: "I’ve been searching for new bedding for so long. I bought this comforter in a whim and am beyond happy with. It’s so comfortable and soft and looks amazing." —Christylyn

    22. A Hanky Panky thong you can stock up on to save even more (get four pairs for $59). People love the lightweight stretch lace!

    Model in the light blue thong

    Price: $16.90 (originally $22 — or four pairs for $59; available in one size and six colors)

    Promising review: "My favorite underwear! So comfy and no lines under anything, so I don't have to think or worry about what I'll be wearing with it. Whatever I want to wear, I don't have to worry about VPL. Best of all, they don't stretch out and hold up much well, so they last a long time." —chpg

    23. A diamond stacking band made with 18K gold (for almost $300 off the original price!) for a hint of sparkle you can truly wear every day on their own or stacked with wedding jewelry.

    A flatlay of three rings, one in each metal tone

    Price: $524.90 (originally $796; available in ring sizes 5.5–8 and in white, yellow, and rose gold)

    Promising review: "Purchased the yellow gold band during the 2016 Anniversary Sales and have worn it almost daily since. This diamond band is a classic, worn alone or stacked. I was first attracted to the brand because of how white the smaller diamonds are, even in the most delicate pieces. I have collected several Bony Levy pieces over the years (rings, earrings, bracelets and necklaces). Not one piece has given me an issue. Bony Levy quality is superb!" —stephluvsutc

    24. A beautyblender set, including two makeup sponges and their vegan brush and sponge solid cleanser so you can get a gorgeous finish on your foundation *and* actually keep your sponges clean.

    A pink sponge, a marbled pink sponge and the round solid cleanser

    Price: $35 (valued at $65)

    Promising review: "I love Beauty Blender sponges, but they are so expensive! I’m so happy Nordy’s has offered them on sale this year! Love them!" —nordiesgal91

    25. An underwire t-shirt bra with lace trim to make you feel a little extra special ~underneath it all~.

    Model in the lavender bra with sheer lace detailing on the top of the cup and band

    A bra with a 4.6/5 average and over 3,000 stars? You love to see it.

    Price: $39.90 (originally $68; available in band sizes 30–38, cup sizes B–G and five colors)

    Promising review: "I will say this is by far the most comfortable bra ever. It is so light- it’s like you are not wearing anything at all. For reference, I’m a 34C - 32D with 'nursing a baby for a year' kinda chest. I will buy them in every color." —JillBJ

    26. A Living Proof Perfect Hair Day shampoo, conditioner, and dry shampoo set for a great deal on three of the cult fave brand's most-loved products. When I tell you that this is the best dry shampoo....IT IS!

    Large pump bottles of the shampoo and conditioner, plus a full size canister of dry shampoo

    Price: $99 (valued at $154)

    Promising review: "I’ve had jumbo bottles of this stuff before and it lasts me over a year. That alone, makes it worth it. Not sure why people are complaining about price. One of these bottle retails for $59 and the dry shampoo is $36. That’s a $154 value. I have medium to long fine hair and I wash it 2x/week. It makes my hair soft with no build up. I pair it with the prime style extender which, sadly, appears to have been discontinued? Strangely, I do not like the dry shampoo. Weighs my hair down. But I know it’s a crowd favorite so I just don’t think it’s for my hair type. The shampoo and conditioner alone make this worth it for me though and I can sell the dry shampoo." —clayt078

    27. A pair of Adidas running sneakers with a flexible knit exterior, ~Boost~ cushioning, and over *6,000* reviews so your next run can be that much comfier.

    The black sneakers with white treads

    Price: $119.90 (originally $180; available in men's sizes 8–13, 18)

    Promising review: "I had always avoided buying Ultra Boosts because of how mainstream they are, but sometimes there’s a reason everyone seems to like one thing...because it’s actually phenomenal! Fits true to size, is incredibly comfortable, looks awesome with anything...all-in-all just an incredibly versatile shoe that would fit into anyone’s collection." —MVeech15
