Natural Skincare Brands to Try – Affordable!

It’s Earth Day 2018 and I think that is the perfect day to share some of my favorite, affordable, natural skincare brands with you guys!

So here are the BEST affordable natural skincare brands!


Derma E is one of the largest natural skin care brands in the US AND it is affordable. This is one of my absolute favorite brands and is a must try. You can find their products at Target, Ulta, and online – so they are easy to find! A teensy con of this brand is most of the products, like creams and serums, are very strongly scented. Although they are natural fragrances, that can potentially be irritating to the most sensitive skin. I haven’t personally had any issues, but I wanted to mention it.

DERMAE Some of my favorite products from this brand:

best natural skin care brands
Microdermabrasion Scrub – $32.50


previously Deep Wrinkle moisturizer night cream
Advanced Peptide and Collagen Moisturizer – $35
Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask – $19.50

This one is totally a dupe for the GlamGlow YouthMud Tinglexfoliate Treatment

Also, check out: Anti-Wrinkle Treatment Oil Vitamins A & E ($12.75 / 2 oz – that is so much product!!) Firming DMAE Serum with Alpha Lipoic and C-Ester ($22.50) Hydrating Clay Mask with Hyaluronic Acid ($29.50) Vitamin E 12,000 IU Creme ($14.95)


What started as a natural supplement company in the sixties, they added their  ‘Solutions’ to their brand in the 80s. While they are still most known for their supplements and essential oils, their skin care should not be overlooked! Another very affordable brand made with natural and effective ingredients. A little harder to obtain – my retailer of choice is Vitacost.

Products I love:

NOW Foods Solutions Moroccan Red Clay Powder
Moroccan Red Clay Powder – $6.99

A very versatile powder – can be used as a face wash or leave-on mask! I love this one, and SO inexpensive.

Solutions 2 in 1 Correcting Eye Cream tighten & brighten
2 in 1 Correcting Eye Cream – $17.99

Featured in my Best of 2017! Love this eye cream, and again – you get SO much for the price!

Other products to check out: Hyaluronic Acid Firming Serum ($19.99) CoQ10 Antioxidant Cream ($19.99) Certified Organic Jojoba Oil ($14.99)


You know this one – she’s at Target and her packaging is on POINT. There have been so many new releases lately from this brand that I am dying to try (like the Pineapple Quench Oil-Free Water Serum). But here are some things I HAVE tried, and LOVE.

best natural face wash for oily skin
Kale Detox Deep Cleansing Face Wash – $8.99
Rice Bright Skin Cleansing Paste – $14
Super Kale Juiced-Up Shampoo – $4.99

Not skincare – but one of my FAVES from Pacifica! This shampoo is the bee’s knees.

More to try: (and now that I’m poking around, they really have SO many new things. I sense a haul coming on!!) Lips Like Sugar Candied Lemon & Sugar Lip Scrub ($4.99) Wake Up Beautiful Super Hydration Sleepover Mask ($11.99) Cactus Water Micellar Cleansing Tonic ($11.99)

Pacifica does also have MAKEUP – and I have tried a few things here and there, but nothing has worked for me. New releases though, and there is always more to try!


Another one you know if you have ever stepped foot in a Target. But they have some of my favorite skincare products, without all that extra junk. Clean formulas, affordable, and easy to scoop up on your next Target trip!

Best skin care products from Pixi:

Glow Tonic – $15

It really is that good!!

Glow Peel Pads w/ 20% Glycolic Acid – $22

Also check out: Jasmine Oil Blend ($24) Double Cleanse ($24) Hydrating Milky Mist ($15) Glow Mist ($15)

There are of course other brands out there that I would consider affordable, I just have no experience with these, so I can’t recommend anything personally. BUT – I do want to mention a few other brands that are natural and affordable! Almost all of these are available at Vitacost (one of my favorite places to shop online. and their shipping speed is INSANE). And some can be found at Target or health food stores.

I hope you have a beautiful, green earth day! And that you discovered something new today!
