Budget Buys-Natural Face & Body Products at Marshall’s

I noticed that my face has been dry and dull looking lately which means that it’s time for me to switch up my skin care.  As you know, I like bargains so I headed over to Marshall’s and found the following goodies.

SAM_2359

Alba Botanical  Hawaiian Facial Cleanser is vegan and paraben-free. It contains pineapple enzymes which not only smell amazing, but they also brighten the skin to keep it from looking dull. There’s also passion-flower, aloe vera, and hibiscus in the cleanser. $7.99 (retail price $10.00)

MyChelle is one of my favorite skin care lines. Normally, I can only afford to buy the travel kits which have sample sizes. Not today. I grabbed two full-size products. Make that the last two full-size products in the store. Pumpkin Renew Cream contains pumpkin seed oil, shea butter, and Vitamin E. Incredible Pumpkin Peel detoxifies the skin and clarifies the pores. This skincare line is vegan, cruelty-free, gluten-free, and paraben-free. I really like the pumpkin smell. I paid $7.99 for each product. They retail for $28.00 a piece. Yeah. I got a bargain.

Continuing with face care, I bought these Body Prescriptions facial wipes. They’re infused with aloe vera and they only cost $2.99. Much cheaper than at a drug or grocery store where face towelettes average $6.00 a package.

I generally avoid natural toothpaste because it doesn’t whiten my teeth. However, Crest White toothpaste has been irritating my mouth, so I decided to try Nature’s Gate whitening gel. So far, it’s gentler on my mouth but we’ll see if it keeps my teeth white. $3.99 (retail $6.00)

For several years, I’ve been using aluminum-free deodorant.  I’m just about out so I decided to try Stinkbug Naturals unscented deodorant. I like the fact that there are only four ingredients: coconut oil, sodium bicarbonate, beeswax, and cornstarch. $3.99 (retails for $6.00)

SAM_2381

I picked up this wooden travel brush. It’s by Mystique and the bristles are made from Tourmaline which is gentler on the hair. $3.99 (retails for $8.00)

*Sidenote. I already own this comb, but I wanted to point out the benefits of using a wooden comb versus a plastic one. Click here for details Benefits of wooden combs.

rosehip

I’ve been looking for a new body scrub. These Somerset scrubs caught my eye. Rosehip smelled so incredible that I forgot to read the label, and unfortunately, the scrub contains wheat. If you’re wheat or gluten sensitive, this scrub may cause issues. So far, I haven’t experienced any problems. This is one of the best smelling and effective scrubs I’ve ever used. $5.99

body shop

I discovered a Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Massage Soap at Marshall’s as well. I just had to buy it because you can’t go wrong with argan oil. $1.99 (retails for around $4.00)

I’ve been eyeing Alaffia’s body wash and skin lotion, waiting for a good sale. Marshall’s delivered. I found 32 oz size containers of Coconut Lime body wash and lotion for $7.99 each. They retail for $15.00 a piece.  Alaffia’s products contain high-quality shea butter, coconut, and other natural ingredients. The company is based in Togo and provides jobs and resources for the community there in Togo.

After I scored at Marshall’s, I stopped by Whole Foods to pick up another Alaffia product which I’ve discussed in past posts.

I use this black soap with shea butter and peppermint for everything. I wash my face and body with it and even clean my bathroom with it. I caught it on sale for $10.00 for a 32 oz bottle. It retails for as much as fifteen bucks. Read more about the company here Alaffia.

I have to say this is the best Marshall’s haul I’ve ever had. I can’t believe I found so many products at such great discounted prices.

Stay blessed,

Barbie
