We understand that it can be expensive to switch out the products you're currently using for lovely natural, healthy options. So we thought we would help to make that transition a bit easier, by sharing our top 10 products under $30! Your budget will stay intact, and you can slowly replace toxic products with their lovely natural counterparts.
Let's get started!
This is an amazing first step to take towards using natural products. Natural deodorants are SO important for overall health, as antiperspirants contain aluminium (along with a lot of other nasty toxins) to clog sweat glands... it's really not good for us. I know a lot of people are concerned that natural deodorants won't work as well, but they really do if you choose wisely. You may experience a couple of weeks where your body is 'detoxing' from antiperspirants, but stay strong and reap the rewards!
2. Hand & Body Wash
MADARA have just released three gorgeous, luxe hand and body washes which are under $20 a pop! Woo hoo! Due to the colour scheme, we love the Infusion Blanc option, which features dreamy notes of jasmine and meadowsweet. ECOCERT Certified, nut free, gluten free, cruelty free and vegan, MADARA Infusion Blanc Moisture Soap will leave your skin feeling clean, soft and delicately fragranced.

4. Laundry Detergent
The giant bottle of The Laundress Baby Detergent is safe to use on the whole family's clothing; including newborn babies. No need to worry about separating loads of washing! We all love this gem of a product, and it washes as effectively as any mainstream product we've used: plus it's gentler on clothes, keeps them looking newer for longer, and it is safe for grey water. The bottle lasts for ages, too, and leaves clothes delicately scented. Heaven.

We all agree that the luk beautifood Lip Nourish in Tea Rose is a beautiful lip balm/lipstick hybrid in a totally wearable shade for pretty much everyone. It is wrapped in a gorgeous reusable glasses cleaner; the tube is subtle and elegant; and all the ingredients used in the lipstick itself are edible. Given that it's estimated that the average woman consumes 3.2kg of lipstick in her lifetime (gah!) it's safe to assume we would all prefer to be consuming 3.2kg of food-grade ingredients; right?!

The pretty pink tube houses a really nourishing hand cream that deeply hydrates hands and cuticles, and returns softness to the skin. This also makes a fab gift - it's boxed and is always well received!
