10 Best Natural Beauty Buys at the Drugstore
Natural beauty products can be spendy. Here are the best ones you can buy on the cheap
Skip ahead to see the 10 best natural beauty buys at the drugstore.
Why? Because Tata Harper's amazing organic face moisturizer will set you back a whopping $100, and the natural and organic body washes, lotions, and makeup lining "Whole Paycheck's" beauty aisles are also pretty pricey.
So what's an eco- and budget-conscious beauty maven to do? Call Alexandra Spunt and Siobhan O'Connor, co-authors of "No More Dirty Looks," an investigative book that looks into the hidden chemicals and toxins in our favorite beauty products. They're two everyday girls who had a big "ah-ha" moment.
"Studies have shown that what we put on our skin gets absorbed into our bloodstreams and circulates through our bodies," says Spunt. "So we realized that while we were doing yoga, living a 'clean' lifestyle, and putting all this attention on what we were eating and drinking, we were missing a huge component."
What happened when they started using eco-friendly beauty products? They were more than pleasantly surprised.
"The natural products performed better [than our old go-tos], improved our looks, and made us feel better," says O'Connor. "My skin looks better than it did three years ago -- and I'm now in my 30s. While there is no such thing as a miracle product, we really have noticed significant differences."
Spunt and O'Connor say they know giving up mainstream beauty products seems impossible, and that's why they gave us this list of the 10 best natural beauty products you can find at the drugstore. There go your excuses. So, grab that reusable tote and start shopping.
