Six Natural and Organic Summer Beauty Buys Under $20

Whether you live on the coast or in the mountains, your skincare routine probably varies from season to season, as your skin’s needs change. But pampering your skin doesn’t have to come at a high price. We’ve rounded up some great products to help you get that glowing summertime look—without breaking the bank.


Skin: Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil, $20. This product is endorsed by dermatologists worldwide, and is ideal for normal, dry, mature, sun-damaged, scarred and sensitive skin—basically, everyone. It restores the skin’s moisture balance, and is clinically proven to improve skin smoothness, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and improve moisture.

Hair: John Masters Lavender Hydrating Mist for Skin & Hair, $16. If you’re a summertime sun worshiper, this hydrating mist is the perfect way to keep your hair and skin looking vibrant instead of parched. Lavender is renowned for its therapeutic and rejuvenating properties—a little spritz on the face, neck, and hair throughout the day (even over makeup or styling products) is a great pick-me-up.

Complexion: Cattier White Clay Facial Scrub, $14. This gentle exfoliant is great for all skin types, with jojoba oil to moisturize and protect your skin, and peppermint essential oil to stimulate, cleanse, and detox your skin.

Body: Pangea Organics Indian Green Tea with Mint and Rose Petals Soap, $7. Containing green tea, an antioxidant, mint to soften and cool the skin, and calming rose petals, Pangea’s organic soap is perfect for overexposed summer skin.

Body: Weleda Sea Buckthorn Body Oil, $20. After a day at the beach or pool, use Weleda’s Sea Buckthorn Body Oil to soothe moisture-zapped skin. You’ll smell delicious, too—it smells of orange and grapefruit.

Lips: Juice Beauty Lip Trio SPF8 Lip Moisturizers, $15. Juice Beauty organic lip moisturizers combine mineral sun protection with certified organic emollient plant oils, mango and passionfruit essences, nutrient-rich vitamins and honey. Includes a naturally clear and two luscious mineral tints.

    Hmmm… me thinks I need some of that hydrating mist. My hair gets so dry, no matter the season.
