Practical ways to live better on less.
Most cosmetics you find at your local drugstores and department stores are loaded with harmful (and unnecessary!) chemicals. Cosmetics are no different than food. In fact, your skin absorbs everything that you put on it. Therefore, taking care of your skin is as important as the food you eat!
Luckily, buying quality natural beauty products doesn’t necessarily mean spending a fortune. In fact, many are the same or even cheaper than the popular brands. Take a look at my favorite affordable beauty products and be sure to tell me some of your favorites!
9 Natural Beauty Product Best Buys
This translucent powder from Physicians Formula is among the best I have ever used. It looks natural, contains all natural ingredients, and won’t break the bank.
Another fantastic product from Physician’s Formula – Organic Jumbo Lash Mascara is one of the only that doesn’t bother my sensitive eyes. Plus, it makes your lashes look gorgeous!
This hydrating coconut oil by Alaffia is the best! The scent is delicious, the ingredients are ultra moisturizing (shea butter, coconut oil), and the price is reasonable.
This lipgloss from Mineral Fusion is the fantastic choice for those looking for an affordable, natural lip gloss which goes on smoothly and provides a nice translucent shine. It glides on smooth, not sticky, and doesn’t dry out my lips.
Avalon Organics sells a great range of shampoos and conditioners. My favorite is this amazing tea tree mint shampoo. It makes my hair look fantastic – shiny, smooth, and clean.
Mineral Fusion is bar none the best brand of natural nail polish. Mineral Fusion nail polish gives you access to many great colors without the unnecessary harmful chemicals. I always get so many compliments from this polish!
I have tried so many natural sunblocks over the year and they all suffered the same fate – leaving a horrible white cast over my skin! This SPF 50 from Nature’s Gate is one of the few which does not leave a visible tint. I can now leave the house again without everyone staring at my sunblock! The price is affordable, compared to other natural sun care products.
Despite years of shopping at Trader Joe’s, I somehow always bypassed the beauty aisle. I thought because the products were cheaper that they would not work as well. However, this affordable Total Antioxidant Facial Moisturizer works wonders. It moisturizes my skin without leaving that dreaded greasy feeling. In fact, it works better than any other more expensive brand I have tried in the past. In addition, it has never bothered my sensitive skin. This TJ’s wonder is definitely the best bang for your buck in terms of general moisturizing.
Another great product from Trader Joe’s! The Antioxidant Facial Serum complements the moisturizer well as part of your evening routine. This affordable serum delivers fantastic results for the small price tag. I started noticing results (and receiving compliments) after just a few days. My skin looked more luminous and smooth and continues to improve over time. I will definitely stick with this one for a while!
