About 6-7 years ago I started trying to switch to completely clean beauty products. I feel as though my skin responds better to them and I like knowing there is nothing bad in these products. While there is a lot of budget-friendly clean beauty, especially now, I wanted to share some that I consider clean beauty splurges. Since the Sephora Sale is currently going on this is a great time to stock up on some new splurge items!
Clean Beauty Splurges
Clean Beauty Splurges: Makeup
One of my favorite concealers is the Kosas brightening concealer. It’s very creamy, you don’t need a ton, and it covers so well.
If you need a good primer the ILIA priming serum is hands down my favorite. I love how light it is but really gives you a good foundation for your makeup.
A good splurge cheek tint is the ILIA multi-stick. I love this for cheek color because it builds so well! It definitely takes a minute to get the hang of it but it’s such a great blush and very easy to travel with.
Pretty much anything from Westman Atelier is a splurge but it is worth it! I love their foundation drops and highlight the most. Their bronzer is also so great for contouring!
Clean Beauty Splurges: Skincare
I have mentioned Tata Harper products on my blog a few dozen times. They are truly some of my favorites. The resurfacing mask is my holy grail mask. I use it several times a week. I have purchased it with my own money many times so I can tell you it’s worth it. The illuminating eye cream is also a big splurge but the way it brightens up your face it’s worth it. I am also a huge fan of their cleansers. My favorite is the regenerating cleanser which is more of an exfoliant. I love to do this and then put the resurfacing mask on after.
Vitamin C serums are my favorites to use during the day. I feel like they wake your entire face up. The Ursa Major serum is one I have been using for over a month and I really love it.
I would say Vintners Daughter active botanical serum is my biggest splurge but 100% worth it. I have used it daily for over 2 years and my skin has never been better. You really don’t need much else at night. I cleanse, tone, and use this and a night cream! I also have recently started using their cleanser. Also a huge splurge but 100% worth it!
Clean Beauty Splurges: Body
With summer around the corner, it’s time for sunscreen! I have been using Supergoop lotion sunscreen for a few years. I think it’s the best for MY skin. I don’t burn with it and I have very sensitive skin that does not get irritated. I also really love their daily moisturizer and eye cream.
I love the Necessaire line. I think their products are so well made and I love that they have fragrance-free options. I love their fragrance-free body lotion and the Eucalyptus body wash. They are definitely splurges but so delightful.
There are a lot of great clean beauty splurges but I just wanted to share my very favorites with you. I hope that if you’re looking to splurge on some clean beauty you give these a try!
I would love to know some clean beauty splurges you’d make!

Oh wow, going to save up for some of these! Or add them to my wishlist for my birthday (hint hint, next month). Thanks for the recommendations, Neely. Happy Friday! 🙂

Off to check all these out…. well, except the bath soak, we don’t have a tub!
I’ve not heard of Credo – will have to check them out. I only use clean products too so will have a look at some of your suggestions…
I am an advocate of clean beauty and try to use products of this caliber. I will definitely check out your recommendations! Thanks for sharing!
Clean beauty is always a must! I love your recommendations!
Looks like the place to go for all your beauty needs. I liked the “uncoverup”. Such a great selection of shades to suit everyone .
I will be looking at the Credo website when I next need to stock up!
I should try this next time I am up to the DFW area. I don’t know much about makeup or what to look for in it, but would love to have them help go through what I use and give me suggestions for better products.
I’ve not heard of most of these. I’ll be checking some out though. Thanks for the recommendations.
A lot of great recommendations! I’ll have to have my wife take a look as well!
I am definitely trying the goop bath soak stuff. I don’t take baths often and am looking for something new that won’t leave a huge amount of residue in the tub afterwards.
I have not heard of Credo Beauty. I must go and find out about it. Hoping to find what you have suggested.
That is interesting! I did not know Tat Harper made any clean skincare, I thought their ranges have silicones, alcohol and synthetic fragrances.
I always tend to look for clean beauty products. These are some really great recommends for skin care!
These all sound like great products! The illuminating eye cream sounds like something that I have got to try!!
I love taking a bath – it feels so luxurious. I’m going to check out the G-tox bath soak.
Oh dear…I cannot think of any clean beauty splurges, but then again, my beauty routine is pretty bare-bones anyway. Almost never wearing makeup (lazy mama!) helps with that…
These all seem like they’re worth trying 🙂 I have been loving vitamin c serums lately as well 🙂
I’ve been slowly switching over to better products, too. I use a lot of the products from Young Living because I already love their essential oils and have also started their supplements. But there are some things I can’t get through them so I’ll have to give your recommendations a try!
I’ll be honest: I don’t do much splurging on beauty items anymore. I just don’t have a huge reason to since I’ve found a skincare routine I love and I keep my makeup relatively simple. The most I might spend is a little extra on a favorite mascara or something haha. I know it wouldn’t be a bad idea for me to treat myself in the future though so I’m glad I saw your favorite items here!
This sounds interesting. I have never tried serums before, but I guess I can try them.
I really like Bite Beauty. I liked them even before they rebranded to become clean, vegan, cruelty free and gluten free!
These are great picks! I’m super picky about my clean beauty products so I definitely appreciate this 🙂
Thanks for making this list!! I never know what to get during these sales!
This is a great article. Clean beauty is very important and it is a shame we are not better informed on what is inside the products we use. I recently switched to a clean haircare routine and I can see the difference in my hair health and shine after only a few washes. It is amazing how damaging sulphates and parabens and other chemicals can be.
