Beauty Products Don’t Have to Break The Bank

You really don’t have to go broke buying high end beauty products.

I came across this article that  Dana Oliver, beauty editor for The Huffington Post wrote.  I have used every product on her list and agree, they are great beauty products.

Trader Joes happens to be one of my all time favorite stores.  In fact I always joke that I could be happy moving anywhere in the country as long as there is a Trader Joe’s near by.

So if you are lucky enough to have a Trader Joe’s near by, don’t miss out on these very affordable beauty products.


The 10 Best Beauty Products To Buy At Trader Joe’s

My love affair with Trader Joe’s started with a 16-ounce jar of coconut oil. I had spent weeks searching for this hair, skin and stir fry goodness before spotting it on the shelves at the homely grocery store. This $6 find convinced me to check out the actual beauty products at my neighborhood Trader Joe’s.

Initially, I wasn’t impressed. The section is the size of a standard New York City apartment closet (translation: not very big at all). But once I got over the lack of grandness, I could see that Trader Joe’s made up for it with an amazing selection of cleansers, moisturizers and soaps.

Push aside the garlic hummus, veggie bacon and chunky salsa in your shopping cart and make room for the 10 best beauty products you can buy at Trader Joe’s.


1. Trader Joe’s Lavender Salt Scrub, $6. Forget about forking over tons of money for some fancy salt scrub. This lavender-scented TJ’s alternative helps to recreate a luxury spa experience right at home.

2. Tom’s of Maine Deodorant, $4. If my armpits could talk (and I mean in a good way), they’d probably thank me for adding this aluminum-free deodorant to my beauty routine.

3. Trader Joe’s Organic Virgin Coconut Oil, $6. You can use this stuff for practically EVERYTHING. What else is there to say about it?
