For those interested in taking the natural approach to their beauty routine, it may seem a bit unfamiliar and, well, pricey. As much as we love eliminating toxins, chemicals, and other unnecessary (harmful) ingredients from our daily regimens, sometimes the natural route puts a bit of a dent in our wallets. But in truth, just like not all unnatural beauty products are expensive, there are several good-for-you brands that won't break the bank—many that you can even get at the drugstore.
To find out which natural drugstore products are worth the purchase, we tapped the brain of celebrity makeup artist Lina Hanson. From blush to makeup wipes to deodorant, these cheap beauty buys will be gentle to your body and your wallet. Check out her favorite products below!
"I keep these cleansing cloths in my makeup and grooming kit at all times," says Hanson. "It removes makeup and oil really well. It has a calm and soothing scent and is perfect for long days on set. I love that it can be used for all skin types."
"This is a long-lasting blush that gives your skin a natural glow. I love that it is colored with fruit pigments rather than synthetic dyes," says Hanson. "Using a blush brush, just sweep it across the apples of the cheek for a soft, healthy look."
"I searched for an effective fluoride-free toothpaste for the longest time and was so happy to find this one. It contains only the best ingredients and leaves one's mouth refreshed and feeling tingly," says Hanson.
"This eyeliner is so soft and creamy and glides on with ease,—it's great for smudging. The best part about it is that it's non-irritating and super gentle, so it works for even the most sensitive eyes," says Hanson.
"I'm obsessed with this creamy matte lip crayon," says Hanson. "It is the perfect shade of pink that works for most skin tones. It also leaves lips soft and moisturized."
"This bronzer works wonders for fair skin tones that need a natural sun-kissed look," says Hanson. "It's infused with natural Amazonian butters that leave the skin silky soft."
"This is a great soap that is moisturizing and smells wonderful. I also love that when you buy this soap it gives a bar of soap to someone in need," says Hanson.
"I've tried many deodorants, but nothing comes close to this one," says Hanson. "It doesn't irritate my skin like other deodorants do. It's non-sticky and surprisingly long-lasting. It also doesn't stain—huge bonus."
