Au Naturale Eye Essentials Kit

A reader asks....

One of my dear readers sent me an email and explained how she is a budget-conscious, ingredients-conscious & in store type of buyer.

She said:  

"I hate waiting for my orders to arrive. I like good ingredients but as a mom, I like to save money. Ideally, I can spend $200 to completely overhaul my beauty routine. I need it all, sunscreen and shampoo and makeup and skincare. I don't want any bad ingredients. Can I get the whole kit and kaboodle at Walmart? I know it might be a stretch in this budget. PS, I also need a couple new makeup brushes!"

YES! Yes, here is my shopping guide. She can do it! All of these items can be found at Walmart. I have never really been a Walmart fan, but let's face it--sometimes it is easier to drive a couple miles and get everything done while out running errands.  Plus, Walmart has been brining in many healthier beauty brands lately.  All of the products below are free of parabens and artificial fragrance, as well as other nasties.

The total cost of everything here--makeup, hair care (even the ceramic round brush), sun care, nail polish, and bath & body:  $190.54 

My reader told me that she is currently using Clinique for most of her makeup. She said she'd like to get a summery new nail color, replace her Estee Lauder sunscreen and self tanner, too. I was able to replace everything on her list that she sent me and replace it with healthier options AND at budget-friendly prices!
