The Best Affordable Natural Beauty Brands
This post has been requested FOREVER. I’m sorry I took so long, but it took me ages to put together a list of what I thought was the best in natural budget beauty because let’s be honest: there’s a lot of crap out there. Not only that, but it’s tough to find great products that don’t cost a fortune. All that said, there is a massive misconception within the green beauty community that natural products are all expensive and it just isn’t true. The best affordable natural beauty brands are not only affordable, but they’re super effective, pretty, AND just as wonderful as the luxury brands in many cases.
If you’ve been hanging out here for awhile, then you know how much I love Rainwater Botanicals. This is because it was the first natural beauty brand I ever discovered on etsy many years ago. Not only that, but the products are incredible. They smell great, work very effectively to solve skin issues, AND they’re just as high quality as the luxury brand stuff. The packaging is very woodland/apothecary in style so it’s not super fancy schmancy, but it works and it does the job for less than half the price in many cases. I love their serums, face oils, salves, bar soaps (they don’t dry my skin out!), CC eye balm, sunscreen, sea salt spray, and many others. Their Troubled Skin line is also genius for acne prone skin – hormonal and cystic.
Best for: Skincare and Body Care
Price Range: $2-$30 ($60+ for entire skincare sets)
Pacifica is an awesome budget beauty brand! My favorite products are their wonderful line of hair care products which you can get for $10-$15 depending on the size. Their face and deodorant wipes are also amazing and smell wonderful too! Their line of cosmetics also work well. My favorites are their mascaras, eye shadows, and nail polishes.
Best for: Face and Deodorant Wipes, Makeup, Hair Care, and Nail Polish
Price Range: $4-$30
Naturallogic Skincare is a brand I discovered years ago on Etsy around the same time as Rainwater Botanicals. This brand is wonderful because it has more of a clean aesthetic and was formulated by a holistic nutritionist and herbalist. All of the products are all natural, wild crafted, and cruelty-free. I love their cleansing oils and gels, but they have since expanded their line to include men’s skincare, aromatherapy, body care, and other products.
Best for: Skincare for Specific Skin Type/Issue
Price Range: $4-$60
Juice Beauty is another brand I discovered many years ago. One big thing I love about Juice Beauty is that they are all natural and organic, cruelty-free, vegan, and formulated with plant powders, juice, and seriously innovated the natural beauty landscape (in my opinion). Their face washes, serums, and cosmetics are all wonderful. I love their lipsticks, cream blush, mascara, their blemish powder, face mist, beloved green apple peel, and all of their face serums (more gel texture than oil in texture). They can get expensive, but they are fairly affordable and you can get smaller sized products if you’re on a budget.
Best for: Skincare and Makeup
Price Range: Varies
I have talked about the Konjac Sponge Company tons of times and for good reason. In my experience, these are the highest quality konjac sponges around. I’ve learned that not all konjac sponges are created equal, but these ones are hand crafted from sustainable konjac sourced in Korea. They do the best job at cleansing skin without stripping it of valuable skin nutrients and oils. Moreover, they are 100% biodegradable, easy to use on face or body, and they work so well!
Best for: Konjac Sponges, obvs.
Price Range: $9-$15
Balm Balm Skincare is a wonderfully gentle and simple line of natural skincare. They have specific lines created for various skincare types and concerns. The troubled skincare line uses hero ingredient, Frankincense, to soothe acne and inflammation. Other lines include hero ingredients rose, witch hazel, and others to aid in various skin issues.
Best for: Skincare lines with specific scent
Price Range: $9-$20 (may be more expensive for skincare sets)
Herbfarmacy is a wonderful organic skincare brand that’s handmade in the UK. Herbfarmacy uses plant ingredients grown on their farm to create organic multipurpose balms, soothing face toners and oils, and other gentle skincare and aromatherapy items. I really love their multipurpose balms because they truly work for everything, but their skincare lines also work really well at a super affordable price.
Best for: Organic multipurpose balms and serums
Price Range: $6-$30
Karma Organic Spa makes wonderful natural nail polishes with lots of color options. They’re fantastic 3 Free polishes that have great shine, lasting power, and finish to them. Their unique soy polish remover is another favorite because it removes nail polishes without using abrasive ingredients and the lavender one smells amazing!
Best for: Affordable Nail Polish and Soy Polish Remover
Price Range: $10-$20
Zoya nail polishes are amazing because they’re super affordable, offer high shine and lasting color, and come in a wide variety of colors and finishes. They have TONS of color options and cost only $9 a piece.
Best for: Affordable Nail Polish
Price Range: $9
Alima Pure Cosmetics are an amazing line of mineral makeup. They make all of their cosmetics without harmful talc and use non-nano mineral pigments (the kind that won’t penetrate your pores). Their color selection is SERIOUSLY impressive and super affordable! Their line of powder foundation has one of the broadest color selections I’ve seen and their mineral eye shadows have the most beautiful color payoff and finish of any I’ve tried. They are my go-to for powder foundation and mineral eye shadows.
Best for: Mineral Makeup
Price Range: $14-$28 (more for sets)
Uncle Harry’s Products make a wide line of natural oral care products, supplements, skincare, hair care, aromatherapy, and natural health foods. I personally love their natural oral care products because they’re super affordable, effective, and have a variety of items to choose from. I love their gum serums, mouthwash, and spearmint toothpaste!
Best for: Natural supplements and Natural Oral Care
Price Range: $3-$50+
Moon Rivers Naturals is a wonderful rustic skincare brand that offers natural skincare products, beard care, body care, and natural soaps at an affordable price. All of the products and packaging are incredibly high quality and work really well. My personal favorites are their body scrubs, bar soaps, and bath soaks. They create amazing and unique scent blends for their products which make each one feel like an experience. Their Coffee Grapefruit Scrub is my all-time favorite!
Best for: Body Care, Skincare, Bar Soap, and Beard Care
Price Range: $7-$34 (more for sets)
Erzulie Cosmetics is a brand I tried ages ago on etsy and I mentioned them a few times on my instagram. I love this brand because they make some unique natural cosmetics. They have awesome tinted lip balms with incredible pigmentation, creamy concealer sticks, and eyeliner crayons at super affordable prices. They’re a great brand if you find that most natural cosmetics brands are too pricey for your budget.
Best for: Natural Cosmetics
Price Range: $3-$30 (higher for sets)
