Who doesn’t love Trader Joe’s? Here are 31 products from there that are cruelty-free and vegan—and did I mention hella affordable?!

1. Spa Lavender Hand & Body Lotion

This lotion smells like heaven and lasts for months, depending on how willing you are to share it with family and friends. At $4.99, we think it’s a great bargain.

2. Botanical Bounty Foaming Hand Soap

True to its name, this soap includes a bounty of coconut oil, aloe vera leaf juice, chamomile extract, borage oil, and linseed oil.

3. Coconut Body Butter

Ashy skin, BE GONE, with this nourishing, coconut-scented body butter.

4. Refresh Citrus Body Wash

If you thought that your morning shower couldn’t get any more invigorating, think again. This delicious body wash will awaken your senses with the smell of fresh citrus. What a welcome wake-up call!

5. Dr. Bronner’s Peppermint Pure-Castile Soap

Dr. Bronner’s fresh-smelling peppermint soap is sold both in bars and in liquid form—and the bars last so long that they’re worth every penny. Plus, the soap is versatile: You can use it to wash your body, face, hair—even your clothes, house, and teeth! (Make the most of the liquid soap by diluting it with water.)

6. Next to Godliness Micellar Cleanser & Makeup Remover Towelettes

Towelettes are most effective when used between washing your face and moisturizing, to clean off any residual grime that lingered after the wash.

7. Enrich Moisturizing Face Lotion

This is a great daily moisturizer, as it contains a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 15. If you spend an entire day in the sun, however, you’ll want to use one of these vegan sunscreens.

8. Nourish Oil-Free Antioxidant Facial Moisturizer

Featuring green tea extract, coffee bean extract, and vitamins A, B5, C, D, and E, this moisturizer delivers quite a bang for your buck.

9. Tea Tree Oil Pure Vegetable Soap

This bar soap’s simple and effective formula is perfect for the hands, body, and face. It also works well to prevent breakouts.

10. Vitamin E Oil

You can use this affordable vitamin E oil for soothing dry cuticles and cracked heels as well as for smoothing split ends, among many other uses.

11. Nourish Spa Balance Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner

These affordable gems are a great addition to your daily hair-care regimen and are packed with vitamin E and argan oil.

12. 100% Australian Tea Tree Oil

You can apply this oil directly on acne or dilute it with water to use as a toner after you wash your face.

13. 100% Pure Jojoba Oil

This store clearly has all your oil needs covered. Jojoba is fantastic for skin because it’s structurally close to human sebum—this means that it’s similar to your skin’s natural oils. It doesn’t feel greasy or clog pores. We’re in!

14. Nourish Herbal Blend Lemongrass & Clary Sage Liquid Soap

This soap smells fresh and earthy, thanks to the lemongrass and clary sage, which are used for their cleansing and astringent properties.

15. All for One, One for All Shampoo, Conditioner & Body Wash

To be honest, I was a little skeptical when I first tried this one. An all-in-one wash for $4? Can’t work that well, right? Well, actually, this left my hair feeling silky smooth and totally tangle-free. You must try it.

16. Nourish Shea Butter Hand Cream

How can your hands stay dry with a mixture of shea butter, cocoa butter, almond oil, and sunflower oil? They can’t!

17. Coconut Oil

Trader Joe’s also carries organic virgin coconut oil, which serves similar purposes as vitamin E oil. You may find yourself using this one in the kitchen as well as in the bathroom!

18. Next to Godliness Lavender & Chamomile Hand Soap

Lavender and chamomile make such a perfect combo—we recommend that you keep a bottle of this by every sink in your house.

19. Lavender Salt Scrub

This is hands down one of the best products you could ever buy. It makes your skin baby soft and keeps it moisturized for days.

20. Spa Face Wash With Tea Tree Oil

I’ve tried so many face washes in my day, and this one beats them all. Yes, it’s even better than all the expensive brands. It clears up blemishes without drying out your skin, and the ingredients are simple. 

21. Fresh Linen Scent Antibacterial Hand Soap

This liquid soap uses extracts of aloe, vitamin E, and rosemary to soften and moisturize your skin.

22. A Midsummer Night’s Cream Moisturizing Cream

The name is about as long as a Shakespearean play, but the formula is just as rich. This luscious lotion contains aloe, avocado oil, vitamin E, and jojoba oil.

23. Aloe Vera Gel

When we say that aloe vera is a classic skin-care product, we mean classic: The Greeks deemed it a panacea 2,000 years ago. And today, it’s still used for its anti-inflammatory properties, positive effects on sun-damaged skin, and ability to help heal wounds.

24. Natural Facial Cleansing Pads With Tea Tree Oil

With witch hazel and tea tree oil, these pads will help wipe away the day’s dirt.

25. Tom’s of Maine Original Care Deodorant

Trader Joe’s sells this effective Tom’s of Maine deodorant at a lower price than most other stores. If it’s not already a staple in your bathroom cabinet, pick some up soon.

26. Ultra Moisturizing Hand Cream

Trader Joe’s set out to develop a high-quality, travel-size lotion at an affordable price, and the company hit the nail on the head with this formula, made of 20 percent shea butter, hemp oil, and vitamins C and E.

27. Tom’s of Maine Peppermint Toothpaste

Tom’s of Maine has been a popular brand of natural personal-care products for over 40 years, but you don’t need us to tell you that—the products speak for themselves.

28. Trader Jacques French Liquid Soap With Vitamin E

This sweet soap incorporates two delightful scents from nature—orange blossom and honey—without any of the cruelty. Find out why buying honey harms bees.

29. Moisturizing Cream Shave

This shaving cream smells of two delicious natural scents—honey and mango—but it thankfully leaves all the sweet stuff for the bees and doesn’t contain any real honey.

30. Tea Tree Tingle Body Wash

We love this product because the scent of tea tree oil isn’t overwhelming, and the “tingle” might even give you more of a morning buzz than your cup of coffee.

31. Tea Tree Tingle Shampoo and Conditioner

Tea tree oil is great for treating dandruff and a dry scalp while also working to clean and stimulate your scalp.

Sulfate free and does not dry out your hair! ($3.99) #traderjoes #shampoo #conditioner
