Don't you just hate how difficult it is to plan ahead for Cyber Monday sales? Even though everything's mostly online these days, all the details stay shrouded in secrecy until the last minute, leaving you as stressed as you would have been jockeying for position during a good old-fashioned mall stampede. Thankfully, Nordstrom has decided to lower our collective heart rates this year by revealing some of its Cyber Sale deals in advance. (Insert sigh of relief here.)
Here's what we know so far: Technically, the Nordstrom Cyber Sale kicked off on November 29, at which point the retailer offered up over 1,000 items at discounts of up to 50 percent off. The vast array of deals involved in that sale are available now on Nordstrom's site, which we highly recommend taking a gander at before your favorite style of size sells out.
The sale's landing page promises deals on clothing, shoes, handbags, home products, jewelry, accessories, and our favorite — beauty products. Just in a first glance through the discounted products, we noticed the Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream Home and Away Duo (Was $80, Now $50), which offers the iconic brand's best-selling moisturizer in two sizes, the Neulash Lash Enhancing Serum Duo ($190 Value, Now $95), which boosts lash growth for a thick, healthy fringe, and the MAC Cosmic Lip Duo (Was $37, Now $20), a combination of a liner and lipstick bullet that comes in an array of eye-catching shades.
On Friday, November 29, we noticed the stunning Marc Jacobs Tag 27 Tote is on sale for just $150, down from $395, and on Saturday, November 30, the retailer promises a one-day-only chance to pick three mascaras and get one of them free. Meanwhile, on December 2, presumably the final day of the sale, we're dying to get our hands on the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Starter Set (Was $60, Now $25). The only thing we haven't decided yet is whether to keep the radiance-boosting skin-care set for ourselves or gift it to someone deserving on our list.
There's still plenty of time to decide, but in the meantime, this represents just a taste of the savings that are available throughout this sale. Nordstrom also calls out some particular clothing brands to keep an eye on — bestsellers like UGG, Hunter, Nike, and The North Face — so watch this space, and check back at Nordstrom.com for updates. If we all play our cards right and stick to the plans, we could get through this frenetic shopping season without descending into a full frenzy. Here are just a few more of our favorite deeply-discounted items to whet your appetite.
Beautybio GloPRO Microneedling Regeneration Tool
At-home microneedling has become one of our favorite ways to avoid a pricey trip to the salon, and the GloPRO regeneration tool from Beautybio is at the top of its class. The rolling head consists of 540 stainless steel microneedles — exactly what they sound like — that pass over your skin, creating imperceptible punctures to jump start the collagen production process and speed absorption of the accompanying complexion products.

Riki Skinny Lighted Mini Vanity Mirror
A word of warning regarding the Riki Skinny mirror: keep the LED-ringed surface in your sights at all times, as staffers have been known to snatch the convenient little appliances off each other's desks when left unattended. And is it any wonder? The Oprah-approved mirror offers five levels of illumination for your makeup lighting needs, a magnifier for delicate details and even a phone mount with Bluetooth connectivity so you can snap your selfies straight from the mirror.

Tom Ford Bold Boys Lipstick Set
When it comes to planning your statement-making holiday looks, Tom Ford is definitely a name you'll want on your side. This collection from the bold designer is a Nordstrom-exclusive, and features three of the brand's eye-catching shades, each formulated with formulated with rich, nourishing soja seed extract, Brazilian murumuru butter and chamomilla flower oil. We'd probably have trouble choosing between the flame-kissed burnt orange of Federico, the lush, blue-red matte Armie, or the deep berry of Jordan with its glossy, wine-dark finish. Luckily, we don't have to, because this kit includes all three.

Beautyblender All That Glitters Makeup Sponge Set
The one thing no beauty lover could ever have too much of in their kit is makeup sponges, which makes this Beautyblender set the perfect stocking stuffer for that person on your list you've been struggling to shop for. The three-piece collection includes two of the original sponges, which promise flawless application of primers, foundations, highlighters, blush, or basically any complexion product you can dream up, plus a festive plastic carrying case large enough to hold both at once, that's conveniently vented for proper airflow.

Lightstim LED Light Therapy Device
Black Friday is all about getting high-tech products at prices that only come around once a year. If you've been coveting Lightstim's game-changing, FDA-cleared LED wands, now is your chance to grab not one but two different models. The Lightstim for Wrinkles employs multiple wavelengths of light to stimulate collagen and elastin production to boost skin firmness, while the Lightstim for Acne beams blue and red light into skin to kill acne-causing bacteria while calming redness and irritation. For those of us lucky enough to have both acne and sagging skin, Nordstrom's deal is a chance to tackle it all.

FOREO UFO Mini With 28-Pack Mask Deluxe Set
If you aren't already obsessed with FOREO's revolutionary UFO skincare device, now's your chance to get on board. The UFO Mini uses four technologies (thermotherapy, cryotherapy, T-sonic pulsations, and LED light therapy) to supercharge the range of masks that pair with the slick little orb. But that's not the best part; this Black Friday deal comes with a whopping 184 (that's right, one hundred and eighty-four) masks to apply with the UFO Mini, including the fan-favorite H2Overdose, Call It a Night, Make My Day, Glow Addict and Youth Junkie masks. A full-sized UFO retails for $279 at Nordstrom (though that, too, is on sale this week), so with this deal you're basically getting free masks — enough to last for a year or two.

T3 Twirl Trio Interchangeable Clip Barrel Iron
There's a good reason this set won Allure's 2019 Best of Beauty award for best curling wand — actually, there are three good reasons. T3's convertible collection offers one solid, powerful base (with a swivel cord for full range of motion) and three interchangeable curling irons that can be swapped out depending on the style you're going for, whether loose waves or defined curls. And if ever you should tire of those and want even more styling options, T3 offers a full range of seven different wands that can snap into the base. If only everything were that easy.

Strivectin Power Starters Advanced Retinol Trio
How did past generations even live without retinol? The concentrate tackles rough, uneven skin, wrinkles, acne scars, and sun damage along with restoring plumpness to skin. StriVectin's high-powered retinol set offers an intensive serum, a night treatment, and a cream delicate enough for the eye area — all of which revitalize skin without irritation. This trio retails on the brand's own website for $134, so we salute Nordstrom for practically giving it away at half-price.
Was $109, Now $76 (Shop Now)
Buxom PillowPout Creamy Plumping Lip Powder
It's not a lipstick, it's not a plumping gloss, it's a...powder? Yup, you read that right. Buxom's totally innovative formula uses a sponge-tip applicator to smooth on a demi-matte lip powder that users say stays on for hours. Expect that familiar tingly feel that accompanies plumping glosses, but without the sticky, glassy sheen that inevitably glues strands of hair to your lips in the worst way. If you're still skeptical about the concept of lip powder, Nordstrom's Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale is the right time to give it a shot.
