The best part about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is the same thing that can make it a bit overwhelming—there are so. many. options. When browsing through the beauty category, which houses over 200 exclusive deals, it's easy to get lost in the sea of products. To help you figure out what's worth buying, we tapped three board-certified dermatologists to share their picks.
12 dermatologist picks to shop during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

“This is a hyaluronic acid-packed moisturizing set that will thoroughly hydrate the skin,” says Ivy Lee, MD, a board-certified dermatologist in Pasadena, California. “The toner and face mask can be stored in the refrigerator—kitchen or skin-care fridge—and used as a refreshing and cool treat for your skin during the hot summer months.”
Worth $297, now $197
“Rich in plant extracts, this serum helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles as well as hydrate and smooth the skin,” says Marisa Garshick, MD, a board-certified dermatologist in New York City. “It can be used one to two times daily and can be applied after cleansing or toning, prior to applying the rest of the skincare routine.”
Originally $82, now $49
Packed with nourishing ingredients like squalane, glycerin, and shea butter, this body lotion is “beautiful and highly moisturizing,” says Ranella Hirsch, MD, a board-certified dermatologist in Cambridge Massachussets.
Worth $84, now $56
“This hydrating moisturizer contains antioxidants and feels lightweight on the skin,” says Dr. Lee. “It’s a wonderful gateway product to build a community of men who moisturize (MWM). This product is for all genders but the labeling and marketing is targeted toward men.
Worth $339, now $199
“This microcurrent device is FDA-cleared and helps to tone facial muscles and improves the overall contour and appearance of the skin,” says Dr. Garshick. “It comes with the gel primer and can help to rejuvenate the skin and improve skin laxity.”
Worth $155, now $95
“This is a well-rounded travel set focused on hydration,” says Dr. Lee. “I rarely use all four steps of this set. The cleansing foam is a daily must. For more humid climates, I’ll just add the renewal oil as a morning and evening moisturizing layer. For drier climates or during the winter season, I would then add the treatment lotion and-or moisturizing cream.”
Worth $205, now $144
“Combining both physical and chemical exfoliants, this can be used one to two times per week to help eliminate dead skin cells,” says Dr. Garshick. “This leaves the skin looking radiant and refreshed without feeling dry or irritated.”
“You can glow as if you’ve been kissed by the sun without the DNA damage,” says Dr. Hirsch, with this limited-edition Nordstrom-exclusive palette. It includes a finishing powder, blush, and bronzer that leave your skin with a lit-from-within luminosity.
Worth $1,540, now $970
“If you’re already a fan of these creams and serums or have been wanting to try, getting this set during this sale provides a great discounted value,” says Dr. Garshick. “This collection rejuvenates, lifts and firms the skin using caviar extract.”
