Let’s face it, sometimes the “clean” alternative doesn’t work. And I don’t know about you, but I find it difficult to use a product that doesn’t work only because it’s clean. So, I’ve gone through my beauty cabinets to see which products have made the cut — both on the performance and ingredients scale — and here are my top 5 favorites. If you’re looking to make a switch, I can 100% recommend these products. Let’s get into it.
1. Each & Every Deodorant
From long days on set to back-to-back workouts, my Each & Every deodorant has got me through some pretty stressful times. And stress sweating is somehow worse than regular sweating?? Either way, this product is a 10/10 and I’d endorse a swap. I still have a code with them, too. It’s NASTIA for 30% off.
2. Kosas Eyebrow Gel
OMG. Like, OMG, OMG. This product is a holy grail product. It perfectly adheres to brows and is buildable without flaking. I love it, Picasso.
3. dae Shampoo
You know when you use a clean shampoo and your hair is, like, stripped down to nothing and just TOO squeaky clean? This dae shampoo doesn’t do that. It leaves some natural oils, removes build-up, and makes my hair soft and silky.
4. Nécessaire Body Lotion
I’m a BIG TIME perfume girl. Admittedly, the scents I like aren’t clean, but I still use them. Because I love my signature scented perfume, I don’t like a competing body lotion scent. This Nécessaire lotion is the GOAT. It isn’t greasy, doesn’t transfer, absorbs beautifully, and hydrates for hours and hours. Zero scent, which is perfect.
5. Milk Makeup Matte Cream Bronzer Stick
If you like a contour, this Milk Makeup bronzer stick is for you. So blendable, so beautiful. I know some people have their ride-or-dies, but this clean option makes the cut for a swap.
