It all started one day when I was in a hurry. I needed to do my grocery shopping and buy some lotion … and I didn’t have time to go to both the grocery store and Target (which is on the other side of town). So, I wandered down the beauty and home aisle of Trader Joe’s hoping to find something that would soothe my dry skin for at least a few days before I could get my usual brand. And I came across Trader Joe’s A Midsummer Night’s Cream and Ultra Moisturizing Hand Cream.
And … I haven’t gone back to the brand I was using before.
It made me wonder what other great bath and beauty products I was missing out on at Trader Joe’s. Next, I tried the brand-new Grapefruit Ginger Sugar Scrub, which is amazing! It smells fresh and makes your skin feel great when you scrub.
I’ve used Dr. Bronner’s soaps before, and thought I’d try the peppermint one. Invigorating! And good suds at a great price—that huge bottle was about $12.00.
I was on a roll! So, my next purchase was the Next to Godliness Micellar Cleanser & Makeup Remover Towelettes and Natural Facial Cleansing Pads with Tea Tree Oil.
I can’t believe I’ve been missing out on this! The makeup remover towelettes are amazing—they are great for my drier winter skin, work better than the brand I was using before, smell amazing, and my skin feels clean after I use them, not slimy. I was a little worried about trying out the cleansing pads with tea tree oil since my skin is also pretty sensitive. But … my fears were completely unfounded. In fact, I’ve noticed that the pores on my cheeks and nose are smaller and clearer. #winning
Finally, try this fancy trick … hang some eucalyptus branches in your shower for a fresh scent in the steam. Since one bunch is about $3.00 at Trader Joe’s, it’s an inexpensive way to make your average shower feel spa-quality.
I no longer skip the home and beauty aisle at Trader Joe’s. If you give any of these products a try, let me know how you like them.
