I really appreciate clean, natural, non-toxic brands that try to keep their products affordable. Although luxury brands/products might be fantastic ($125 face serum, I’m talking about you), I have a family, and my budget isn’t of “the sky’s the limit” variety. You know what I mean?
These are a few more affordable clean/natural brands I’ve personally used or heard a lot of great things about:
100% Pure – I really like their lotions for spring/summer/fall, and currently use their eyebrow gel in Taupe. Some of their products are carried at Ulta stores.
Pacifica – I’ve used their mascara and lipstick (pretty good!) and they have some products available at Target.
Everyday Minerals – I used EM makeup almost exclusively for YEARS (until I had to switch to a cream based foundation). They have great quality at very reasonable prices. Adorable website, too!
Silk Naturals – I’ve been obsessed with their eyeshadows lately, though they have a full makeup line. Their prices and selection of eyeshadow are AMAZING for clean beauty. I plan on doing a review of their eyeshadows soon…
Brija – A green beauty You-Tuber started this line and shares my name. Her eyeshadows are so fun, although she has lots of makeup items for sale.
The All Natural Face – I’ve never personally purchased any of their products, but have heard their quality and prices are good.
Honeybee Gardens – Another line I have yet to try, but I’m interested in their eye and lip liners.
Zoya is the only brand of 5-free nail polish that I personally know of that is under $10 a bottle – I’m sure there may be others out there, but this is the only one I have tried. They are also carried at Ulta! And they have a fantastic range of colors and finishes.
Acure is my top pick for affordable (yet still fantastic quality) skincare. Their products are top notch and won’t make your wallet cry.
Acure again here, as well as Desert Essence Organics (what I’m currently using), Juice Organics, and The Honest Company. I’ll soon be doing a review of The Honest Company’s haircare, which are the only hair products I use on my daughter.
Home/Cleaning Products –
The Honest Company again, Seventh Generation, Dr. Bronner’s, and Planet are all nice options for home and cleaning items. I personally am smitten with The Honest Company’s products. The packaging is adorable, the quality is great, and the prices pretty reasonable.
What are your favorite brands for clean, affordable, non-toxic products?
