4 Natural Beauty Products for $20!


the best natural beauty products for under twenty dollars



My sister and I like to swap beauty tips whenever we get the chance.  Living on opposite coasts does present a challenge.  We have different styles, but when we do get together we are like catty high school chicks.  "Where did you get that new handbag? Why did you get a haircut like that?  Why didn't you buy me one of those!!"  Questions are always flying about what the other has.  So we presented ourselves with a little challenge.........With only $20 buy 4 natural beauty products that you are interested in using.
Much easier said than done.  "Natural" isn't cheap.  Try the challenge or just try one of these!

Nicole's Picks:
#2 Yes to Blueberries Cleansing Facial Towelettes $5.99-at 99% natural and paraben-free these cleansing wipes make your face feel clean and soft.  Not crazy about the smell, but good to throw in the purse for long day out.
#4 Shea Moisture Organic Coconut & Hibiscus Shea Butter Soap $3.99- I have been eyeing this company for awhile.  I love bar soap to begin with, but unwrap this beauty and the smell is brilliant! This company has an amazing backstory that originates in Sierra Leone.  The purchase of this bar continues to help disadvantaged Shea nut growers in the region.
#5 que bella purifying mud mask $1.99- Total Steal! Come on you can't buy anything anymore for $1.99. At 80% natural products it's a good one off!
#7 Dr. Bronner's Peppermint Castile Soap $6.99- In LOVE with it.  Actually my kids are.  They love taking "candy cane" bubble baths.  Not only are they getting clean, but these bubbles are safe!

Amanda's Picks:
#1 Epsom Salts $2.99 for 3lbs- Need we say more. Soothe your cares away naturally along with muscle aches and pains. Great post-workout relaxer.
#3 Alba Botanical Pore Purifying Mini Peel $8.99 A great paraben-free facial mask that feels cool on the skin and has an overall tightening feel when finished.  We all could use a little "tight".
#4 Biotin Vitamins $5.99 What could be more natural.  If your hair and nails are suffering give them a boost.  It makes a huge difference in a couple months time.
#8 Avalon Organics Cleansing Milk $7.49-This is a great "soap-free" wash. Totally natural with a nice citrus scent and after smell. Also a great company that continually makes great inexpensive natural choices.

Ok, you probably realized my products add up to $18.96 , while my sisters add up to $25.46.  Now here is where we differ. She used coupons and her final bill was $19.20.  Go figure.  Now I certainly cut coupons and download mobile versions, but I simply will never be that organized to actually bring them in the store and use them:)  

Love and Tulips,
