Clean beauty has quickly moved from ultra-niche to ultra-lux. Now more than ever, store shelves (and let’s be honest, my bathroom counter) are filling up with eco-friendly and nontoxic products that are good for you and actually work.

When switching to natural beauty products, one of the biggest hurdles people find is accessibility. If you can’t afford to toss out all your toxic products all at once, my favorite trick when it comes to swapping your products for cleaner ones is to start slow. Gradually clean up your beauty lineup by swapping a product for a less toxic one when it runs out. Even still, we can’t all justify trying out a $150 organic face oil. That’s where Target’s clean beauty section comes in.

If you haven’t strolled down Target’s natural beauty aisle, it’s about time.

I accepted the challenge to find actually legit swaps for some cult favorite clean beauty products and I was soo impressed by the goodies Target offers. The pricey nontoxic bestsellers are bestsellers for a reason, BUT these products below certainly give them a run for their money. Bonus: they’re all $30 and under!

Read on for our pick of budget-friendly Target beauty aisle swaps for eight cult classics, and let us know: any amazing Target clean beauty finds you’re obsessed with?
