The 12 Best Beauty Products We Discovered at Whole Foods
You already know it has great tomatoes, quinoa and almond milk. But the next time you’re filling up your cart at Whole Foods, take a stroll over to the beauty aisle. There are some great finds (at surprisingly reasonable prices). Here are our 12 favorites, from eye serum to sea salt spray.
Zatik Organic Pomegranate Eyebright Serum
This cream zaps under-eye puffiness with natural ingredients like pomegranate oil, chamomile, aloe vera and pumpkin oil (whoa). Just dab a few drops under your eyes before bed and let the serum do its magic.
Trilogy Everything Balm
A multitasking lip, body and hand balm that doubles as diaper rash cream if you’re in a pinch. The soothing combo of rosehip seed oil, marula oil, beeswax and jojoba oil is also a great salve for small cuts and scrapes.
Weleda Skin Food
Ashen elbows and cracked heels are no match for this über-hydrating moisturizer made with rosemary, sunflower oil and lanolin. Rub a dime-sized amount of the extra-thick cream on the driest areas of your skin—or use a dab as makeup primer.
Mineral Fusion Volumizing Mascara
This cult favorite has a huge following. It’s cruelty-free, hypoallergenic and made with—you guessed it—minerals. It also contains vitamin E, which naturally conditions your lashes with each use.
Mineral Fusion ($19)
EO Organic Lavender Hand Sanitizer Spray
Tip: Keep this organic disinfectant stashed in your purse at all times. One spray kills 99.9 percent of germs, and best of all, it doesn’t leave that rubbing alcohol scent lingering in the air. Mmm, lavender fields…
MyChelle Perfect C Serum
Vitamin C naturally prevents fine lines and wrinkles, and this stuff is chock-full of it. (It’s also totally vegan.) Use one pump on your face in the morning after cleansing and you’re good to go.
Dr. Hauschka Rose Day Cream
Calling all sensitive-skinned ladies: Balance out an uneven complexion with this heavy-duty moisturizer. Avocado, shea butter and rose petal wax help soothe chapped and rosacea-prone skin.
Dr. Hauschka ($45)
Acure Organics Brightening Facial Scrub
The next time your skin is looking dingy, grab a bottle of this hardworking scrub. It naturally exfoliates with organic sea kelp and lemon peel, and then zaps away oil with French green clay. Use it three times a week to get your skin back to its bright, vibrant self.
Alaffia Good Almond Milk Soap
This triple-milled soap is ethically traded, and it’s available exclusively at Whole Foods. We love to lather up with the soothing almond milk formula, but the blackberry, cucumber, wild strawberry and coconut versions aren’t too shabby, either.
Dr. Bronner’s Peppermint Castile Soap
Don’t be scared by the eccentric quotes printed on the label. The design dates back to the 1950s, and it’s just part of this all-purpose soap’s charm. (And yes, there really was a Dr. Bronner.) A little goes a long way, and a few drops will lather up your whole body. Apparently, you can even use it to do your laundry.

Acure Marula Oil
It’s packed with omega-3s, and it’s the new "it" oil on the block—this cold-pressed, unrefined version is as good as it gets. This stuff soothes chapped skin, reduces the appearance of scars and prevents split ends, so stock up.
