5 Inexpensive & Natural Beauty Products You Have to Try ASAP

The following post contains SHOPSTYLE affiliate links and reviews for products I have received complimentary from Influenster*. More information is located at the bottom of this post.



If I could give myself a title for my beauty habits, it would be something along the lines of "Loyal Product Buyer/User" because I have the tendency to find a product I like and never use another (even long after it probably isn't working for me anymore).

While I will likely be saying "goodbye" to my old products thanks to the new, inexpensive, and natural ones I have recently discovered, I will most certainly be that same "Loyal Product Buyer/User"... just for new brands.

After receiving my first complimentary VoxBox (thank you so much, Influenster!) not long ago, featuring Matrix Biolage R.A.W. Recover Shampoo & Conditioner, I could not help but wonder which other fairly cheap and natural beauty products would work wonders as well.

Here are the 5 products I have since found (aside from the Aveeno moisturizer, which I have been a "Loyal Buyer/User" of for years), which I have absolutely loved and will undoubtedly stay loyal to in the foreseeable future:

1. Matrix Biolage R.A.W. Recover Shampoo*

Before even trying the Biolage R.A.W. (Real, Authentic, Wholesome) Recover Shampoo, I fell in love with its delicious, fresh scent of yucca & goji berry. Of 70% natural origin, with no artificial colorants, silicones, sulfates, or paragons, the shampoo truly surprised me. As someone who has curly hair, I always find it tough to choose shampoo and conditioner that tames the frizz and keeps my hair shiny without having to use a million + one other products after each wash. The Biology R.A.W. Recover Shampoo + Conditioner combination managed to do both.

2. Matrix Biolage R.A.W. Recover Conditioner*

The Biolage R.A.W. Recover Conditioner had the same effect. When combined with the shampoo, I could not get enough. Even after just a few washes I have seen an incredible difference in my hair — less frizz, more shine... something I can definitely get used to. Additionally, one thing I absolutely hate when it comes to using heat on my hair is that often times the heat kills the scent of the wash. Thankfully, the smell of this shampoo + conditioner combo lasted not only after using a blowdryer and flatiron, but also after several days.

3. St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub

I tend to have softer skin, but never has my skin ever felt this smooth or looked so clear. The 100% natural exfoliants in the St. Ives Apricot Scrub scrape away the dirt and dead skin, leaving my skin soft as can be. Plus, it smells heavenly.

4. St. Ives Blackhead Clearing Green Tea Scrub

Within just one use of the St. Ives Blackhead Clearing Green Tea Scrub I was able to see a difference. My nose is typically where I see blackheads on my face, so I scrubbed the green tea solution over my nose (as applying to the whole face would likely dry it out), then rinsed away the problem spots. Literally. With just one quick scrub and rinse, I could see a huge difference. AND, like the apricot scrub, it has 100% natural exfoliants.

5. Aveeno Active Naturals Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer

While the first four products listed here are recent discoveries, the Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer has long been an absolute must for my skin. After every wash in the morning and before bed each night, I apply the cream to my entire face and neck and it leaves me feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. If there is one product I could not live without, it's this one for sure.

  1. I've been loving natural/organic beauty products recently! I struggle with break outs and acne every once in a while, and I have found that all-natural products sometimes don't work for me...like I need something stronger. But I love using organic products like in household cleaners, laundry detergent, stuff like that!

    1. Hi Katherine! I find beauty products as a whole are tough because everyone's skin and hair are totally different! Skin in particular is so tricky. That said, if you have hair that's anything like mine — curly and often frizzy — I highly recommend the Biolage R.A.W. Recover Shampoo & Conditioner! I will definitely try out organic home cleaners and laundry detergents, these products definitely inspired me to get on a natural/organic kick! Do you have any personal favorites? Thanks for reading!! xx

    1. Yay! Thanks for reading, Andrea! I was really afraid it would dry out my skin where I have blackheads, but as long as I use some moisturizer (the Aveeno above) after each use, it hasn't been a problem! I have loved the product!! I would love to hear if it ends up working for your son, so stay in touch! xx

  16. I love the idea of using natural beauty products! I have trouble finding a shampoo that makes my hair actually look clean though. Often the natural ones still leave my hair feeling a little greasy. Did you find that was the case? They sound amazing though and I'm seriously considering trying them out!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I was honestly very skeptical to try it for similar reasons. BUT I was so so surprised at the result! I don't know how often you wash your hair, but I typically wash every other day to avoid drying it out. This shampoo & conditioner made my hair look just as good day two AND even better, smell just as good! I don't particularly have oily hair and my natural hair is very curly, so it may work differently for you, but I truly had a great experience and greasiness was not an issue!

      I used the Recover Shampoo & Conditioner, but I would definitely take this quiz (https://www.matrix.com/biolage/raw-quiz) to see if there is a better one for your hair type. If you do end up trying, I would love to hear what you think! :) So excited you're interested, Hannah! Thanks for stopping by!

  17. I've always loved Biolage products. I'm a creature of habit too... I order the same thing from every restaurant, buy the same toiletry brands, and am happy with something that makes me happy. No need to explore, ha ha.

  18. When I was in college I always used St Ives apricot scrub to exfoliate. Right now I don't exfoliate much anymore since I got the clarisonic. To cleanse my face I use african black soap, its a miracle product.

    1. Yes! St. Ives is fabulous, but I totally know what you mean about the Clarisonic! I have one as well, but sadly lost my charger for it somewhere along the process of moving :( But I will have to try African black soap! Thanks for the suggestion!! xx
