10 Trader Joe's Beauty Buys You MUST Try

It's been a slow week for me. The stickiness of summer has settled in. To ease the heat, I'm currently drinking some iced coffee as I write this. I only drink iced coffee in the summer, where I promptly become obsessed with it, like I've never had it before. Every year. Delish. Oh and it's sweet tea year 'round in this house.


Do y'all remember a couple of weeks ago when I shared my fave finds from Amazon? I'm back with another edition for all of you Trader Joe's fans out there--that would def be me. Y'all, their peonies for $6 for a bunch are worth the drive. But they have lots of hidden gems, like in the beauty department! After testing various beauty items over the years, I've got my first addition of 10 must-try Trader Joe's beauty products. These are cheap, effective, and the packaging isn't fancy. But they work! AND EVERYTHING IS $6 and under!

Coconut Body Butter
  • $4.99--It's creamy, it's lightly scented and it's moisturizing (or you can DIY like I've shared on my blog). BONUS: Look for the seasonal body butters. They do a pumpkin one, pomegranate, and a trio of mini bb's.

Refresh Citrus Body Wash
  • $2.99--Such an amazing deal and worth it for the scent alone!
Oatmeal Exfoliant Soap
  • $2.99--My favorite natural exfoliating soap
Shave Cream in Mango
  • $3.49--I've been getting into shave creams this year and have really been liking this one. It's half the price of a mango-scented one I used to get from Target
Lavender Salt Scrub
  • $5.99--Another one of those products that I make but I understand not everyone has the time or desire to. This is one of the pricier items on this list at a whopping $6, but a little goes a long way.

Enrich Moisturizing Face Lotion
  • $3.99--If you're looking for a very light facial moisturizer with SPF15, give this one a try.
Nourish Antioxidant Facial Moisturizer
  • $5.99--Full of natural oils and goodness, I like this for dry skin.
Spray Sunscreen SPF 50
  • $5.99--This one doesn't leave a sticky residue and it smells like the beach. While I prefer traditional cream sunscreens, this one works well. BONUS: There's a new stick sunscreen that debuted this month. Really good.
Tea Tree Oil Shampoo
  • $3.99--A classic TJ product. I use this for the tingling sensation and when I have buildup on my scalp
All-in-One Facial Cleanser
  • $5.99--This is gentle as it cleans and lightly exofoliates
--All products are found in TJ stores or online at Amazon; however, they are usually doubled the price, which is why I didn't link them here.--

  27. I buy and use the coconut butter, body wash, face lotion, and cleanser regularly! I love the tea tree scent, but my hair didn't love the formula. It was a little too stripping. I also love A Midsummer Night's Cream!

  28. I never tried a tea tree shampoo, and I would like to! Also, the oatmeal exfoliant seems to be very good! I love body exfoliants, nice for the skin! Iced coffee... as I told you, I love iced tea, but I have to give this iced coffee a go one of these days!

  29. I've never used any of these, but i love it

  30. I'll be checking out the face products for sure. Thanks for this Elle. It's been burning up here, I think I'm so over Summer at this point.


  31. I'm not sure if TJ is available here in Canada? Maybe in the larger cities but definitely not where I live.
