Natural Liquid Foundation

Save vs Splurge 2021

Save: While not all of the Physician’s Formula line is clean, they do have a few great options. One of which is the Physicians Formula Organic Wear Silk Foundation Elixir. It does include phenoxyethanol, which I typically avoid. People have mixed thoughts on that ingredient, so if you’re comfortable with it and want an affordable foundation, this is a good bet! Find it here. $11.99

Splurge: One of my absolute favorite makeup items! A splurge for sure, but Ilia Super Serum Skin Tint is pretty amazing. You can’t beat the EXTRA wide shade range and this stuff magically blends in with your skin. Find it here. $48

Lemongrass Body Scrub

Splurge: If you’ve tried anything from Beneath Your Mask, you know how special the products are. They are certainly splurge-worthy! The Polish- Detoxifying Body Scrub goes above your average body scrub with colloidal oats to sooth skin and clay to purify. Find it here. $70
