In honor of Earth Day, I wanted to focus on budget-friendly green beauty products I’m loving these days. I agree with the idea that what you put on your body is equally as important as what you put into it. And that requires reading labels and being pickier about the beauty products you use. I know you might be thinking that all-natural beauty brands are super expensive, so trading your goodies for a few natural ones can wind up costing a fortune. Not only that, but do they even work? Luckily, the demand for green beauty has forced brands to formulate products that deliver results – and it’s allowed all-purpose retailers like Walmart to stock more of these items.

I love that Walmart carries a huge variety of products including makeup and skin, hair, and body care. If you don’t know a ton about their green beauty selection, here are my top 5 recommendations:
1. Facial Cleansers
Here on the blog, I always stress how important it is to treat sensitive skin carefully. Walmart offers cleansers formulated without parabens and petrolatum, so you know they are safe to use. Burt’s Bee’s is noncomedogenic and dermatologist tested so you can be sure the cleanser is gentle and nourishing enough for your skin. I also love how effectively the Neutrogena Naturals Facial Cloths remove makeup without leaving a tight or greasy residue. Simple Micellar Water is also a popular product that makes the cleansing process so seamless.
2. Lip Balm
If Burt’s Bees is known for anything, it’s probably their popular lip balms, which are formulated with Vitamin E, peppermint oil, and beeswax. Beeswax is one of those special ingredients full of antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties. It’s known to combat chapped skin during dry and cold months and protect the skin from environmental toxins. I highly recommend this lip balm for the hot, summer months because your lips along with your face should be protected from the sun. And they’ve also introduced a Burt’s Bees lipsticks and lip glosses!
If you have drier, sensitive skin, facial moisturizer are game changers, and Walmart has a ton of options! I like one that’s a little thicker in texture but doesn’t feel greasy or heavy even in the humid summer. Simple has a great moisturizer that easily absorbs into the skin making it great for wearing under makeup. Or look for a multi-tasking product like the new Burt’s Bees BB Cream that acts as a moisturizer and also offers light coverage.
4. Lotion & Scrubs
I’ve been talking so much about skin and body care because it’s so important in the summer time when we’re prone to exposing our bodies more. There’s nothing better than an exfoliating scrub to get healthy skin glowing in the sun! I am currently using the Tree Hut Moroccan Rose sugar scrub, and it smells AMAZING. (Another all natural scrub to try is the Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Pore Scrub.) Burt’s Bees body lotion is topnotch because it’s non-greasy and smells so good – it’s hard to believe the fragrance is all natural! It soaks right into my skin and leaves me hydrated in an instant!
5. Makeup Brushes + Applicators
I was so surprised when I realized that there was an area of eco-friendly beauty dedicated to makeup BRUSHES. Not only that, the Eco Tools line is SO good you guys. I got one of their makeup brushes as part of a Christmas gift a few years ago not realizing that it was an all-natural brush. It’s one of the softest makeup brushes I have! They even have natural beauty sponges – I love the one that’s attached to a brush specifically to help with under eye concealer.
