Natural skincare products that are affordable are hard to come by, especially if you’re looking for something that will actually work. Because–let’s be real–if you’re ballin’ on a budget, the price tag is just as important as the ingredients list when you’re shopping for new skincare products.
There’s been a big shift towards natural and organic skincare products now that people are aware of how harmful their ingredients can be. “When researching chemicals in skincare products, you will find that there are hundreds of chemicals that may be introduced in products,” explains Joyce Imahiyerobo-Ip, M.D., MPhil, who lists lead, mercury, parabens, fragrance, and triclosan as some of the main ingredients to avoid. “Some people will always try to make the case that the chemicals you are exposed to in these products are minimal so it shouldn’t matter. Personally, I’m not taking that chance.”
And we aren’t either! Here are some of the best cheap and natural skincare products available–and if you don’t believe us, they all have outstanding reviews from happy customers!
This cleanser uses advanced marine bioactives and phytonutrients to keep the skin clean, balanced and refreshed. It removes makeup, oil, and impurities with its foaming, sulfur-free formula that reveals radiant skin.
"I was looking for a product with good/safe ingredients and that was gentle for sensitive skin and this is it. The smell is wonderful and you only need a little but you do need to add water to lather it up. Great for sensitive skin. So glad Target now carries Pacifica. Try this line!" - K
"I like that is face wash smells sooo good, is cruelty free, and works well. I sometimes have to take an extra pass over my eyes to remove all of the makeup, but that's a small concern. I love the scent & the lather; and the fact that it doesn't dry out my skin. Best scented cleanser by far!" - CaliHonu
"I love this. My face looks so glowing after I use it. I do have dry skin and didn't realize this product was for combination skin...Overall it is a really great natural product. I would recommend this brand!" - BB93
This in-shower facial delivers healthy, glowing skin with its oil-free formula that is activated with the steam of your shower. It penetrates deep to gently exfoliate the skin and remove all traces of dirt, oil and dead skin.
"I absolutely love this product leaves your skin so soft, does everything it says it will, removes blackheads, leaves skin soft with a subtle glow, I love it!" - Maryann
"I love this product. So convenient that you can just put it on and let the steam of the shower do the work for 60 seconds. It has a great fragrance too. My skin is soft and smooth after using." - karna68
"This stuff is awesome. Your skin really does look better right after using it. I noticed a bigger difference after using this once than after my $180 chemical peel at the dermatologist!!" - srbhalverson
This natural exfoliant contains sea kelp and other super nutrients to soften, brighten and detoxify the skin. It also cleanses deep with lemon and green clay, but don't worry, it won't strip your skin of its natural moisture!
"I have extremely acne prone skin and no matter what I do I break out. I received this scrub in a target beauty box and am amazed. I use it before I put on my makeup every day and it not only helps to clear my skin but makes my makeup last through the whole day. it is such a good product, especially for the price. I will be loyal to this product!" - FearTheRadio
"I have always loved skin care products and have tried everything from high-end spa products to drugstore bargains and this is by FAR the best scrub I've found thus far. The texture is quite rough which means you don't need much and have to be gentle, but it provides an excellent exfoliant and the smell reminds me of getting a facial. I totally notice a difference in my skin after using it for 3 months. I look forward to the days I use it in the shower and tell all my girlfriends to use it." - EMore9
"I've tried about every scrub on the market and this one is hands down The Best. Does a good job without having to use too much product. The bottle lasts for months. You won't want to use anything else for exfoliating." - The Real AliG
Botanics Nourishing Facial Oil ($13.49)
Infused with rosehip oil, which is rich in omegas and essential fatty acids, this oil hydrates the skin and locks in moisture to maintain a healthy, balanced and even complexion.
"I LOVE this oil and I have very sensitive skin. it not only nourishes my face but at 41, I look 28 because I keep my skin hydrated. I cannot live w out this. I'm ticked its no longer carried in the store tho. what a hassle to buy online. a bottle lasts me about 4 months. amazing deal. I use it 1-2 times a day." - tinydancer
"I've been using this for over a year, often when skin feels extra dry and during winter. I'm still on my first bottle but it's almost empty. I use 2-3 drops at a time. It's very moisturizing and doesn't cause breakouts. It has a light sweet floral scent. During the day time, I let it absorb into the skin before I apply my sunblock. It also works as a nice base before applying makeup." - Artemis
"Cant beat it for the price. Works as well as the expensive vitamin c serum I used to use. Smells great. Absorbs well. I use it every night when I take off my makeup." - The Thrifty Fashionista
Having hydrated lips is just as important as having hydrated skin. Treat your lips with this soothing lip balm that's formulated with organic beeswax.
"My lips get really chapped and peel regardless of how much water I drink or what I do. I bought this when my lips were actually really bad (I had been using Burts bees at the time) and it really made a difference. In the beginning, I started applying this 3-4 times a day, until they were no longer peeling. Now I apply it once a day and I no longer have to worry about my lips being so dry." - hb
"I have extremely dry lips. This product is petroleum, fragrance-free. It works the best of the MANY, MANY lip balms I have tried. I would not have a problem recommending it to anyone." - peaceful
"This is the best lip balm ever. Does not dry out lips and keeps them soft for awhile. I've tried the naked and the peppermint and both work really well." - BadgerFan
These natural face wipes are designed for all skin types and gently cleanse away pore-clogging dirt, oil, and makeup to leave the skin feeling soft and clean.
"I wanted to write a review because I have very oily, acne-prone skin. I can't use most things on my face, including many lotions and makeup, without breaking out or getting a rash... I've heard of oil-absorbing sheets, but they seemed too expensive for what they were. These double as a makeup remover and as an oil-absorbing sheet, which I love. Have not had any breakouts with this product and I've been using it for about 2 months now." - OilySkin
"I love the sensitive product better than the regular ones. I notice when I used the regular wipes it had a tingly burning feeling so I switched to the "sensitive" wipes for this brand instead." - Tee Cheeks
"These towelettes are everything and more that I have been looking for. They are very soft and gentle and make my face feel refreshed. My face also feels very soothed and moisturized. I only need one of these to completely wipe my whole face. The smell is not strong and the best part for me is that they fit right in my purse for anytime use." - Amanda31
