So, we all know that going green can seem like quite an expensive venture at first. Fortunately, more and more retailers are catching on to the “green trend” and it is getting easier to shop for natural products without having to break the bank. Here are some tips for getting the most bang for your buck:
For natural cosmetics and other beauty products, look no further. BeautySage carries popular brands such as RMS Beauty, ILIA Beauty, Rahua, One Love Organics, Yarok, and so much more. They offer great discounts from time to time and even have free shipping deals for the holiday season! What I really like about their website is that you earn 1 point for every dollar that you spend, and when you accumulate 100 points, you get $10 to spend on your next purchase! Pretty, neat right? Every time that I have ordered something from them, it has arrived in a timely fashion and was packaged very carefully. Plus, I was given another 10% coupon to use in the future!
Vitacost is one of those great, one-stop-shop places where you can get almost everything you need in one place. They have discount vitamins, supplements, skin care products, hair care products, food products, and even pet products! They offer free shipping for orders over $49 and they have some of the best discounted prices on popular natural items. This is the best place to stock up on your basic essentials and save money! If you want to get $10 off your purchase of $30 or more, be sure to use this referral link: https://www.vitacostrewards.com/kWx5uLi.
This is basically like the “Sephora” of the green beauty world. They have all the popular brands your favorite beauty blogger is constantly raving about and offer many of the luxury brands like Kjaer Weis and May Lindstrom. They also have some pretty good deals whenever they’re having a flash sale and they have a rewards program that allows you to cash in your accumulated points for some green beauty gifts. What I really like about this website is their sample kit. It is by far the best way to try something without having to go through the hassle of spending the full price on a product that you may not like or end up returning. We all know how hard it is to find local stores that carry natural beauty products and as a result, it is nearly impossible to tell whether or not a product will match our skin tone and type. Sample kits solve that problem rather nicely and you get a $5 voucher to spend on your next $40 purchase once you find your favorite.
While not every brand on this website is “natural”, they do carry green beauty brands such as Vapour Organic Beauty, Juice Beauty, W3ll People, and Rahua. Currently, they are having a 20% off coupon on all orders through December 31st, 2013. So, if you are interested in any of their brands, now would be a great time to shop!
5. In-Store Deals
Lastly, don’t forget to check your local Whole Foods, Sprouts, Target, and CVS stores. Any retailer that carries your favorite natural brands may have sales, so always check in because you never know what deal you will stumble upon. For example, when I to my local Sprouts a few weeks ago, they were having a Buy One, Get One Free Sale for Acure Organics! These sales are great for stocking up on your favorites or even for trying something new without the buyer’s remorse.
