    28 Things From Nordstrom With Hundreds Of 5-Star Reviews

    From Aesop Post-Poo Drops to out-the-box comfy classic Doc's, here's a bunch of things people love to love.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A pair of platform open-toed Ugg slippers that literally and figuratively give reviewers a warm fuzzy feeling. The shearling lining is so plush you'll feel like your feet are in a cloud, and there's a color-coordinated strap on the back to keep them snug and secure in case you feel like going outside today.

    The slippers in Strawberry Sorbet Poppy

    These are available in whole sizes only. In between sizes? Ugg says order down. A lot of reviewers ordered down ~a full size~ from what they normally wear, but as with other mule- and clog-style Ugg slippers, if you do that your run the risk of your ankles poking out the back. Nordstrom has a famously great returns policy, and the reviewers who've had trouble finding the right size (which is a lot of them, honestly) all said the store was gracious about helping them get it right the second time around.

    5-star review: 5,142

    Promising review: "I gave this as a birthday gift to my daughter-in-law. It was a hit! The quality of this indoor/outdoor slide is fantastic. I took the advice of the fellow in the Nordstrom video that accompanied this product listing, and ordered a size smaller than what my DIL wears. That was a wise idea. It fit perfectly! She wanted me to mention to you who are reading this review that you can wear this with or without the UGG strap over the back of your ankle. Probably safer to use the strap if you are going to go outside. Comfortable either way!" —BroBob

    Price: $99.95+ (available in women's sizes 5-12 and 14 colors)

    2. A pair of Zenna melangé-knit high-rise joggers with pockets, whose looser fit and plush fabric are comfy as heck. Also, people swear are better than their Lululemon equivalents (for half the price!).

    These pants are machine-washable and made in a factory that supports women worker empowerment through work-based interventions on health, financial inclusion, and gender equity.

    5-star reviews: 768

    Promising review: "Okay, first and foremost I’m just gonna go ahead and mention the fact that I essentially only wear Lululemon yoga pants because of their comfortability and durability...with that said, these HANDS-DOWN trump the Lululemon joggers I purchased about a month before. They’re incredibly soft. Like the kind of silky smooth soft you get right after shaving and getting into fresh bedsheets, soft. The quality is fantastic, especially for the price point. They’re long enough to wear straight, but I can also scrunch them up a bit for a cute casual chic look as well, and they're neither too baggy nor too tight around the thighs and legs. Buy the joggers. You’ll thank yourself later." —Ghostpants2

    Price: $59 (available in women's sizes XXS-XXL and five colors)

    3. A Casper dog bed because your precious angel deserves to sleep like one. Reviewer's pups find the bed relaxing and accommodating, since you can raise or lower the sides depending on your doggo's personal needs. People also love that the cover is machine-washable, because accidents happen, and dogs are not particularly fastidious creatures anyway.

    5-star reviews: 593

    Promising review: "My baby loves his Casper dog bed! This dog bed is worth the price if you ask me. Gizmo is 13 years old, so he needed the luxury of a good dog bed. I'm pleased with my purchase. I like that I could modify the sides, so it wasn't so tall for my dog to get into, and the fact the cover is washable is a plus. Also, I read online if the cover is damaged, you can contact Casper to get a replacement!" —Hopelizromantic

    Price: $125+ (available in three sizes and three colors)

    4. A pair of Dr. Marten's legendary 1460 Pascal boots in either classic black or snazzy white soft, flexible, fine-grained Nappa leather that reviewers adore because it feels like it's been worn-in right out of the box.

    A pair of the boots in white, set up to demonstrate how soft the leather is

    Full disclosure: I wear Doc' daily because they're comfy but sturdy and water-resistant enough to wear all day, wherever my life takes me. In three years I have yet to wear out the rubber sole, and I walk about 1,500 miles a year, mostly on abrasive pavement. I have femme days and butch days, spent in offices, the great outdoors, and sometimes only leaving my apartment to get my significant other an egg sandwich, and these are my constant companion through it all. Try them for yourself!

    5-star reviews: 198

    Promising review: "I could never wear Dr. Martens because I couldn’t stand the break-in period, but these require ZERO breaking-in! They're comfy from the start, because of their super flexible and soft leather. They're not too heavy to wear all day and look amazing with jeans or leggings. They run a bit larger than other styles; if you are between sizes go down." —MissAV

    Price: $150 (available in women's sizes 5-11 and two colors)

    5. An Aveda hand relief cream made with andiroba oil and other plant-based hydrators that reviewers from all walks of life rave reliably offers instantaneous relief for dry, cracked hands.

    A model squirts the cream into their hands

    Andiroba is a tree native to the Amazon whose oils have been used as an anti-inflammatory for centuries, and also contain the dry skin-conditioning trifecta olein, palmitin and glycerin. Because it's partially solid at room temperature, it's a great alternative to petroleum jelly.

    This product is free of parabens, mineral oil, petrolatum, formaldehyde, animal ingredients, paraffin, lanolin, and synthetic fragrances. It's also cruelty-free.

    5-star reviews: 2,240

    Promising review: "Thumbs up for this hand cream! I have notoriously dry hands from years of being a nurse, and now years of being a stay-at-home parent who has their hands in the sink many times a day. This cream, without a doubt, will soften and moisturize my hands in no time. I love the natural scent of all the Aveda products, and this one is no exception." —Soontobemama

    Price: $10+ (available in two sizes)

    6. A Longchamp small Le Pilange nylon shoulder tote with leather detailing that fits more than you'd think, folds flat, and is water-resistant. Reviewers use theirs every day and particularly appreciate that if you, for example, spill your favorite soda all over the inside, you can just wipe it right off.

    A model wears the purse in New Navy to demonstrate how it sits on the shoulder and comes down to the waist.

    5-star reviews: 663

    Promising review: "I purchased this purse for my daughter for Christmas and she has been in love ever since. It is the perfect size and is very practical. The purse has had several things spilled on it, including Dr. Pepper, and it all wiped away with a wet rag. If you are looking for a well-made purse, I recommend this to you." —Butler3

    Price: $125 (available in three colors)

    7. A Barefoot Dreams microfiber throw people say is sumptuously soft and oh-so-cuddly — so much so that after buying one, they just HAD to buy another.

    Two of the leopard print blankets thrown over a bench

    This blanket is 100% polyester and machine-washable.

    5-star reviews: 437

    Promising review: "I love and enjoy these throws so much that I invested in two of them so far! They are extremely soft and calming. They also wash well and hold up for a long time. If anyone is on the fence, buy it, it’s so worth it in my opinion!" —Nordstrom reviewer

    Price: $180 (available in nine colors)

    8. A Natori underwire lace T-shirt bra with literally THOUSANDS of 5-star reviews; hundreds call it "perfect" and the best bra they've ever owned. There's a lot to love, like a fit and sizing that works for folks who have a hard time finding bras that fit in other brands, molded cups that give the same effect as a push-up bra without any padding, and, even though you'd think the lace would show thin tops and T-shirts, it doesn't.

    A model wearing the bra in Spanish Rose

    I love Natori because their cuts and sizing work for me as someone who, like a lot of trans folks, has a *very* hard time finding bras that actually fit. Many reviewers say the same thing, but some think the cups on this bra are a half-size smaller than normal, so the consensus seems to be if you're between sizes, order a size up.

    5-star reviews: 2,438

    Promising review: "This is hands down, the best bra in the world. I'm not kidding. The fit is superb. It is plunging so goes with low necklines. It's smooth so is a great t-shirt bra. I have four colors with the matching briefs and I plan on getting more and wearing this bra for the rest of my life. Get it." —Quinney

    Price: $68 (available in sizes 30B–38DD and three colors)

    PS: This bra is also available in the same sizes and three more colors for $40+ (originally $68) here.

    9. A pair of Red Wing 6-inch Moc Toe boots that feature storm-welted leather uppers, a real leather liner, and rubber soles. Reviewers swear they're the best boots they've ever owned and will likely be the last, since they last an ~incredibly~ long time.

    The boots

    5-star reviews: 271

    Promising review: "I bought these about a month ago and couldn’t be happier. Right out of the box they were extremely comfortable, I went a half size down and they fit perfect: not too tight, not too loose, and they hug my feet while leaving enough room to wiggle my toes. The only issue I had was the first few hours wearing them, my heel would slip up and down while walking in them and it started to rub on my heel and make it very uncomfortable and painful. That problem quickly went away after wearing them around the next day, as you wear them more the leather starts to mold to your foot and will get more and more comfortable. I will never buy a different pair of boots, besides another pair of Red Wings, if these ones ever wear out, but I doubt they will because the construction and durability on these is unmatched. These are the footwear purchase I’ve ever made, hands down" —D man

    Price: $290 (available in men's sizes 7.5-13)

    10. A Bose SoundLink Bluetooth speaker with sound quality people praise as positively superb for something that's less than six inches wide and weighs a little over a pound. It's also water-resistant and has a rechargeable lithium-ion battery with an eight-hour battery life, so you can take it with you just about anywhere.

    The speaker

    One of the people I was a personal assistant for back in the day had one of these and it's true that it's got a big, rich sound. I can't say I ~enjoyed~ listening to Fleetwood Mac on repeat for hours every week, but at least it sounded good.

    5-star reviews: 381

    Promising review: "I just love it! You can hear the highs, mids, and lows and are all perfectly balanced. I'm a professional musician, and my ears are keen to sound. For me, this little powerhouse serves it purpose, and its portability and water-resistant casing is a plus. I recently traveled with it visiting family for a week and it stayed fully charged the whole time. I even pitched this speaker to my family!" —Whiz1

    Price: $129

    11. A pair of short pajamas thoughtfully accented with notch lapels and adorable piping details and made with a durable, machine washable, lightweight knit fabric reviewers say is a scrumptiously snuggly everyday pleasure.

    A model wears the pajamas in Pink Creole Falling Feathers

    5-star reviews: 928

    Promising review: "I love these; they’re so comfortable and they stretch. They are not maternity wear but the elastic from the waist is so comfortable and stretchy, they worked for me just fine. I had my little one already, and the pajamas STILL fit nicely. Also, I love the material. I've washed them multiple times already and they still look nice, not dingy at all." —MrsHooFatt

    Price: $49 (available in women's sizes XXS-XXL and 10 colors)

    12. A bottle of Aesop Post-Poo drops with botanical deodorizing power to gracefully de-funk your bathroom after you do your business. Reviewers say it's an effective alternative for air freshener sprays and scented candles that really works — just a few drops in the loo post-flush and your commode's air is graciously cleared.

    The drops

    The drops are vegan, cruelty-free, and made without parabens or color additives.

    5-star reviews: 195

    Promising review: "I laughed at the name but love the whole concept! With a large family these have 100% come in very useful and appreciated. Only takes a couple of drops and it has drastically changed the bathroom. I love the smell and it lingers for a while which is nice too!" —Pippin883

    Price: $29

    13. A Robert Barakett crewneck T-shirt made of pima cotton for superior softness that stays true to its color wash after wash. It's a splurge for sure, but reviewers say it's totally worth it.

    A model wears the t-shirt in Dusty Pink

    5-star reviews: 407

    Promising review: "Yes, even with the price tag, this shirt is a real value. The cotton fabric is superb and the texture, look, and feel of this tee is wonderful. I own several and will attest to the fact they launder beautifully and hold up very well. You cannot go wrong with these Barakett shirts." —CFSoto

    Price: $35.70+ (originally $59.50; available in men's sizes S-XXL and in 21 colors)

    14. A pair of surprisingly on-trend Dansko Professional clogs that come in everything from a honey-colored distressed finish to leopard print and rainbow iridescent patent leather. Reviewers who spend a lot of time on their feet swear by these for all-day comfort, so much that it's the type of shoe people keep buying for years — like my darling mother, who's been wearing these since the late 1990s.

    The clog in a rainbow iridescent patent leather finish

    Mommy dearest has bought thirty pairs of these over the years, and if you add in her sister and mother the family tally runs well over one hundred, which is a pretty strong endorsement if you ask me.

    These have a roomy fit in the front and should move freely at the heel, but may fit snugly at first. Heads up: the way they make patent leather is by coating the tanned raw material in three coats of polyurethane, which is pretty stiff; for that reason, several reviewers have noted that the patent leather versions stretch a little less than the others. If you're an aficionado looking to add some new patent leather shininess to your Dansko clog collection, consider ordering a little bigger than usual.

    5-star reviews: 171

    Promising review: "I am a student teacher and have been looking for a pair of shoes that are good for standing long hours and moving around a lot on. These shoes are amazing and have helped my back, knees, and feet. I definitely recommend these shoes and the patent is amazing with all my clothes and even jeans." —Teacher21

    Price: $124.95+ (available in women's European sizes 36-43 and nine colors)

    15. An Urban Decay All Nighter long-lasting makeup setting spray that won a 2020 Allure magazine "Best of Beauty Award" and 80% of survey participants said helped their makeup last for sixteen hours without setting into fine lines. Use it to look certifiably fabulous all day — and then some!

    The spray

    It works great for combination, dry, or oily skin, is vegan and cruelty-free, and free from parabens, sulfate, phthalates, and oil.

    5-star reviews: 3,711

    Promising review: "I really liked this setting spray! I was hesitant to try it because in the past setting sprays have either felt like either spraying water on my face or too heavy. This one was great. Even with wearing a mask all day at work, my makeup was still great and didn't need a touch up!" —Aimeeg36

    Price: $15+ (available in two sizes)

    16. A Free People oversized mock turtleneck tunic made from a heavy-ribbed fabric people say holds up without pilling, designed for a loose embrace reviewers are really fond of.

    A model wears the sweater in Ecru and partially tucked into jeans

    It runs big; order a size down. Also, this is hand wash only.

    5-star reviews: 335

    Promising review: "Such a fun sweater! The neckline is different which makes it great. The sweater is very well made, the upper part of sleeves are loose and the bottom are tight, providing provided a nice baggy fit. Definitely a head turner!: —Wilson2929

    Price: $148 (available in women's sizes XS-XL and in six colors)

    17. A Tory Burch Kira leather camera bag with asymmetrical quilting and an adjustable crossbody strap that reviewers say fits all the essentials and is a solid, less-flashy alternative to comparable YSL and Gucci bags for 75% less.

    A model pairs the bag in Redstone/Rolled Brass with a black long-sleeved A-line dress

    5-star reviews: 315

    Promising review: "Girrrrl.... the quality of this bag is equal to the YSL and Gucci camera bags, but this one is cuter and more understated. I really don’t like being a billboard for fashion companies and this is perfect. I couldn’t be more impressed. I own many high end bags from Chanel to LV to Prada, and this bag looks and feels just as high end. My recommendation is to buy this over the YSL and Gucci camera bags." —Dearc

    Price: $358 (available in four colors)

    18. Paula's Choice 2% BHA leave-on liquid exfoliant reviewers swear by to quickly clear out pores for brighter skin with less acne.

    The liquid

    It's cruelty-free, and free from parabens, fragrance, and colorants.

    I've used Paula's Choice products for years and can attest that they live up to the hype AND are gentle enough for sensitive skin or chemical sensitivity. My partner is chemically sensitive, and this brand is one of the only ones I can use regularly without sending them into stifling sniffles and a pounding headache.

    Promising review: "This product is exceptional. My skin is combination-to-oily, and I always seemed to have blackheads on my nose and chin that just would not go away. I often picked at them, making matters worse and turning them into horrible blemishes. After just a few days of using this BHA liquid in the evening, my skin is so smooth, my pores look cleaned out and therefore smaller and my skin has a glow to it. Whenever I press on the pores on my nose, I no longer get so much gunk out. It's so gross, but this liquid has really cleaned out my pores and I am so grateful. I love this stuff and will definitely keep repurchasing." —HCM126

    Price: $29.50

    19. A Nordstrom brand 100% cotton bath towel that's ultra-soft, ultra-absorbent, and wins reviewer acclaim for being so plush and durable you'll want to throw out everything else in your linen closet.

    The towel in Pink Hero

    5-star reviews: 563

    Promising review: "I never thought there was a big difference between towels before purchasing these. They are enormously thick and luxuriously soft, even after many washings. My partner wants to dump the linen closet of our other towels because they don't even come close to the plushness of these. They are worth every penny at regular price, especially since they have held up so well after a year of washing (not one thread pull, and still as soft as the first day). We are adding a few more and slowly disposing of the older towels." —Danal28

    Price: $28

    20. A Fits Everybody scoop neck bralette from Kim Kardashian's Skims brand that reviewers say feels like a second skin and totally disappears under a T-shirt.

    A model wearing the bra in Sienna

    Be careful when ordering. The sizing is based on your bust size, not the usual chest/band size. Measure around the widest part of your chest and consult the sizing chart to find the fit that's right for you.

    Promising review: "If the Lululemon Align leggings came in bra form, this would be it. It's quite snug, but it's so comfortable I forget I have it on. It's hard finding pieces that make me feel confident in my own skin, so I was super happy that this product was able to make me feel cute and put together. I have clothes that I feel more comfortable wearing if I have a bra/bralette underneath, but most products are too uncomfortable that I feel discouraged from wearing some types of clothing. Thankfully, this bra is not only invisible under clothes, but also super comfortable with a luxurious feel. Love!" —Miya J.

    Price: $32 (available in women's sizes XXS-4X and ten colors)

    21. A pair of Sorel waterproof hidden wedge leather boots with a zip closure, 3-3/4-inch heel, and extra grippy treads hundreds of reviewers rely on to avoid slipping on the ice without resorting to bulkier winter wear.

    The boot

    Promising review: "Holy smokes, these are amazing. I live in SoCal and rarely need winter boots but I'm going to Iceland and these are waterproof, give me some traction, and look like a normal shoe so I could wear them again. These are roomy enough for some wool socks without feeling too tight or like they'll give me blisters. My heel isn't slipping, they're fairly warm on their own, they're not too tight around the ankle, and there's plenty of room for my toes to wiggle. Whatever you're on the fence about, ignore it. These are great. I couldn't recommend them more highly." —DrBunny

    Price: $199.95 (available in women's sizes 5-12)

    22. A gauzy nylon headband for little ones that comes in a bunch of colors (not just pink and blue!) and has an elastic headband that reviewers appreciate because it doesn't leave marks like other headbands and has enough elasticity to fits most heads from infancy up to 3 years old.

    A model wears the bow in black

    This headband is hand wash only.

    5-star reviews: 701

    Promising review: "I bought four of these bows and I absolutely love them. They are extremely stretchy and don't leave any lines or marks on my child's head. I also like that they can go over their ears if it's cold or be folded to make the band smaller. My kid is currently 2 months old and these bows will fit her for a long time. My only regret is that I didn't buy more!" —Andajohnson

    Price: $10 (available in seven colors)

    23. A MAC long-wearing concealer that glides on like a dream and gives a dependable matte finish with just a small amount. Reviewers praise it for not being cakey and getting amazing all-day coverage.

    A bottle of the concealer

    5-star reviews: 731

    Promising review: "After using this concealer, I will never use anything else! You will only need two drops and it will be more than enough to cover everything. The consistency of the formula is great and not too runny, and good for priming eyelids as well. I recommend this for all skin types, you will not be disappointed!" —Bmuszik95

    Price: $26 (available in fifteen colors)

    24. A mini Fjällräven Kånken water-resistant backpack with snap-together top handles and exterior zip and slip pockets, designed for kids but popular with reviewers of all ages because it fits a whole lot and puts less strain on your back than carrying a purse all day.

    A model wearing the backpack in Sky Blue

    5-star reviews: 219

    Promising review: "It's the perfect size to use as an everyday purse or for short trips to amusement parks, hiking, or shopping. I stopped using tote bags and purses to avoid future shoulder and spine problems, so this is perfect to limit the amount of things I carry and to distribute the weight evenly on both shoulders. On top of all that, it's super cute!" —Cchayoo

    Price: $70 (available in five colors)

    25. An Adidas Trefoil hoody made of a soft cotton blend people swear by for classic style and surprisingly toasty winter time warmth.

    A model wears the sweatshirt in black

    5-star reviews: 598

    Promising review: "I love the hoodie, it fits well and keeps your body warm, especially in the winter. I love the material. All around it's soft, and even after a wash the quality of it stays the same. I bought two of them and gave one to my friend." —Hulk1369k

    Price: $39 (originally $65; available men's sizes XS-XXL and in two colors)

    26. A Wacoal strapless bra that actually stays up! Reviewers are full of compliments for this one, especially since, unlike other strapless bras, it's both comfortable and functional enough to wear all night long. It also comes with removable straps that can be worn in parallel, halter-style, or crossed in the back.

    A model wears the bra

    5-star reviews: 1,200

    Promising review: "Everyone knows how uncomfortable a strapless bra can be. And, everyone knows how a strapless bra likes to fall down. But this little wonder stayed sypportive through a whole night of dancing! And I was not tugging at the top of it every five minutes. Its a really great, uplifting, stable bra. I highly suggest it." —Shaybay

    Price: $34 (originally $68; available in sizes 30DD–44G)

    27. A container of Kiehl's Ultra Face Cream for unbeatable 24-hour moisturization reviewers come back to time and again.

    The cream

    5-star reviews: 923

    Promising review: "This is at least my fifth time reordering this product, because it is wonderful and nothing else comes close to adding essential moisture to my very sensitive, rosacea-prone skin. It doesn't clog pores and it has a lovely rich creamy texture, no fragrance, and glides on beautifully (a little goes a long way). I apply it all over my face, eyebrows, down the side of my nose and below my bottom lashes with no issues irritating my eyes." —Terri101

    Price: $22+ (available in three sizes)

    28. A leave-in conditioner spray from Briogeo (a Black-owned business!) infused with rosehip, argan, and coconut oils that seal in the cuticle to add moisture and reduce frizz without leaving a residue, leaving your hair shiny, soft, and smooth. After they try it, many reviewers say they'll keep buying it FOREVER, because it's that effective.

    The leave-in conditioner spray

    It's free of sulfates, phthalates, parabens, petrochemicals, mineral oil, silicone, talc, artificial dyes, and DEA.

    5-star reviews: 833

    Promising review: "This product is a game-changer! I have hair that knots up if you just look at it the wrong way. Not anymore! I sprayed this liquid gold on my hair right after I took a shower and let it air dry. Not only was my frizz reduced by 90%, but I went a whole day without brushing my hair and I can run my fingers through it without them getting caught. I'm hooked for life!" —Juju Bean

    Price: $9+ (available in two sizes)
