7 Sustainable Alternatives to Sephora
Natural and eco-friendly options that are just as luxurious
Who doesn’t like stopping by the local Sephora for a few pick-me-up products? I mean, they have tons of great products, most of which fall under the category of #selfcare.
But if you want to get your pampering on in a more sustainable way with natural products, your options there get much more limited.
That’s why I’ve put together this list of 7 skincare, hair, fragrance, and of course, makeup brands that make you feel good, inside and out!
Let’s get to it- the sooner you order, the sooner you can relax in the tub with your face mask on.
#1 Hazel & Rose
Hazel & Rose is a store that stocks a variety of different sustainable and ethical brands. They have skincare products from Little Barn, makeup from Henne Organics, Oscillate, Olio E Osso, Hydra, Noto, and more.
You can find just about anything you need here, from basics like face wash and moisturizer to more luxurious serums, toners, and bath salts. They also stock lip color, multi-purpose stain sticks for lips, highlighter, fragrance, body scrubs, and fragrances. They even have some gorgeous, high-end candles to burn for the total spa experience.
Hazel & Rose has a rotating stock of great stuff, and their skincare is just one section of the store. If you want a one-stop shop replacement for Sephora, Hazel & Rose can be all that and more!
#2 Beauty By Earth
Beauty By Earth has a great selection of skincare, makeup, and hair care products, all made from 100% natural, organic ingredients.
I’ve talked before about how much I love their tinted facial sunscreen, but it’s worth mentioning again- it’s the only tinted sunscreen I’ve found that actually blends well with my pale skin without making me look orange! It provides enough coverage for daily use, as well as a reassuring amount of sun protection.
They have tons of other goodies, too. From face masks to makeup remover, they’ve really got it all. You may also like their natural self-tanners, organic dry shampoos, or konjac sponges.
If you’re feeling indecisive, try their Ultimate Beauty Bundle!
#3 Babo Botanicals
Babo Botanicals is another brand that stocks a range of sustainable essentials. They have a wide variety of sun care products to keep you protected, as well as skin and hair care products to keep you looking your best.
They’ve also recently introduced a line of vegan lip glosses which look really cute!
You can shop their site by various different categories, including “concern” like sensitive skin, fragrance free, eczema care, sulfate free, and others. Whatever you’re looking for, Babo Botanicals likely has a great, responsibly-made option for you!
Teadora supplies a range of luxury products for your hair, body, and face. Their products are unique in that they’re all made from sustainably sourced rainforest botanicals. That includes things like Amazonian white clay, acai, Brazil nut, guarana, Brazilian red clay, rose hip, and others.
These are natural ingredients that are both safe and effective, so you can rest assured that Teadora products will do what they say they’ll do, without risking the harmful side effects that can sometimes come with harsher ingredients.
#5 Badger Balm
Badger Balm makes skin care products packaged in adorable vintage containers that look great in your #shelfie, and wouldn’t look out of place on your grandmother’s vanity, either.
Using effective natural ingredients like rose, argan oil, and seabuckthorn, Badger Balm products are gentle on the earth and your face.
You can find a product to suit any need, since they have collections of unscented products, vegan products, and gluten free products. There’s truly something for everyone!
#6 The Refill Shoppe
The Refill Shoppe aims to reduce the amount of trash being produced each day by supplying their products in minimal packaging. The idea is that you get one container the first time you order (or use one you already have) and after that, you just, well, refill it.
They have refills available for a bunch of common household items, including shampoo, conditioner, bubble bath, sugar scrub, lotion, moisturizer, cleanser, body wash, spot treatment, face masks, and a lot more.
For a lot of these products, you can even customize them by choosing a container, adding your own scents (or no scent) and having products automatically shipped to you on your schedule. Pretty cool!
#7 Pour Le Monde Parfums
As you may have guessed from the name, Pour Le Monde Parfums is a great place to fulfill all your fragrance needs.
While you won’t find celebrity scents or cult classics, you will find unique scent blends that are the world’s only 100% natural perfumes to date.
Safe to say you won’t need to worry about anyone else in the room wearing your scent!
