Trader Joe’s can do no wrong in our book but it’s so much more than cookies and quick meals. They have a pretty awesome beauty and health section with incredible products that are often overlooked because who typically shops at Trader Joe’s for face lotion, you know?
Megan and I have found many of our all-time, everyday beauty favorites in the aisles of Trader Joe’s. We’re sharing our top five best beauty products from Trader Joe’s today plus a couple of honorable mentions.
UPDATE: This list was updated in June 2017 to include the brand new Trader Joe’s Facial Cleansing Oil!
Definitely throw one or more of these in your cart the next time you’re shopping. If you don’t have a Trader Joe’s in your area, we’ve added links to many of the items that can be found on Amazon (those are affiliate links, your click supports our site – thank you!)
Here are the top 5 best beauty products from Trader Joe’s
Trader Joe’s Coconut Body Butter
You’ll find seasonal scents, like pumpkin in the fall and mango in the summer, but the original Trader Joe’s Coconut Body Butter is hands down the best scent of them all. This body cream is thick and smooth made with pure coconut oil, shea butter, aloe and vitamin E.
Trader Joe’s Tea Tree Tingle Body Wash
Tea Tree oil is super polarizing. Some really love it and some can’t stand it. I love the tingly refreshing feeling from the Trader Joe’s Tea Tree Tingle body wash. This was one of the very first beauty products I bought from TJ’s. I’m fickle about most products in general but I keep coming back to this body wash which is made up of organic tea tree oil, peppermint, eucalyptus, rosemary and thyme. You can also find the Tea Tree Tingle in a shampoo and conditioner.
Trader Joe’s Enrich Moisturizing Face Lotion with SPF 15
I shared the Trader Joe’s Enrich Moisturizing Face Lotion once in a favorites video and Megan made fun of its “old lady” scent. Go ahead and call me an old lady then because this is my all time favorite beauty product from Trader Joe’s. I LOVE this PABA and paraben-free daily moisturizer and wear it every day under my makeup. My only wish is that it had a higher SPF. It is amazing!
Trader Joe’s Moisturizing Cream Shave
If you’ve seen any of our favorites videos, I’ve mentioned that I only recently ditched bar soap for shave cream when shaving my legs. I really don’t know why I waited so long! I took a chance on the Trader Joe’s Moisturizing Cream Shave in Honey Mango and it is amazing. It smells wonderful, it comes in a plastic tube (instead of a can) and is paraben-free.
Trader Joe’s Facial Cleansing Oil with Argan and Coconut Oils
New to the Trader Joe’s shelves this year is Trader Joe’s Facial Cleansing Oil with Argan and Coconut Oils. It is amazing. The texture is thin and light, not heavy like some cleansing oils. Massage into dry skin and it just melts off makeup and didn’t irritate my eyes when scrubbing off mascara.
A few honorable mentions:
Trader Johann’s Virtuoso – Forget the cutesy name and just remember that Trader Joe’s sells a 3-pack spearmint lip balm. Megan is a Chapstick die hard and I was able to sway her with these. The lip balm goes on smooth and has a strong spearmint flavor. I really like that they are made of 50% organic ingredients and have a SPF 15. These can be hard to find. Look for a hanging display or near the register.
Trader Joe’s Head to Toe Moisturizing Balm – a little tin of moisturizing balm that works wonders on dry elbows and feet. It even smooths fly away hair. Talk about all-in-one.
Trader Joe’s Micellar Cleansing Towelettes – I have a stash of cleansing wipes so I haven’t bought these in a while but considering the are free from a bunch of chemicals makes them well worth the $3.99 price.
Technically not on the beauty aisle but Trader Joe’s Virgin Organic Coconut Oil is fantastic. If you aren’t on the coconut oil train, what are you waiting for? I use it to remove makeup, mix with my essential oils, treat a sunburn, and add to smoothies. It’s a wonder product. I’m in love with these new little packets perfect for travel!
