It’s no secret that I LOVE Vitacost!
I’ve been ordering from them every month for years. It’s a mutual relationship. They offer me the best deals on my favorite beauty, food, and home products, with new specials weekly on top of their already low prices, and I eat them up (literally).
Whenever I hear of a new product to try whether it’s a recipe ingredient or health store product, I always search their site first and I almost always find it. It’s the only site I trust to buy supplements from because when you order from a site like Amazon, you don’t always know if you’re getting the real thing. Since Vitacost is turning 25 this year they asked me to share some of the items that I order from them every month and in turn, they will offer YOU a chance to win a $75 shopping spree on their site. I will choose one winner to give a code for $75 off on Vitacost.com. Trust me you can get so many goods for $75! Maybe you’ll even like some of the ones below because they are tried and true by yours truly. It was hard to choose only 25 since I’m always finding new things I love, I’ll keep sharing my new favorites as I find them, for now enjoy my current top picks! You may find a cruelty-free and chemical-free theme since I’ve been either pregnant or breastfeeding for over a year now and I love using the purest organic products possible. I will be drawing a winner on March 11, 2019, check my Instagram for details and don’t forget to subscribe to my blog.
My TOP 25 Vitacost Favs
This is a great line of cleaning products for a household with a baby because it’s safe from any irritants, toxins, and fragrances yet effective for the whole family. I keep this stocked up for cleaning bottles, pacifiers. toys and dishes. I also use their laundry soap and disinfectant wipes.
Safe and effective cleaner I can spray on anything and don’t have to worry about chemicals. An added bonus is that it smells super fresh! I even like the earth-friendly parsley room spray it smells light and clean and not perfume-y.
This scent makes me really happy. I first smelled it burning in the powder room of a cute little brunch spot in Highland Park. It was a spring day and I knew I wanted my bathroom to smell like this. I also love the hand soap.
It’s always fun to find a new lip balm, right? A friend told me that this was by far her favorite lip balm, so I had to try it. Of course, Vitacost had it and I love it too. It goes on weightless without build-up yet it’s super silky and hydrating. This is the perfect balm to use under lip liner and lipstick.
This is my favorite clean mascara that actually gives a beautiful volume to my lashes without irritating my eyes. I also use the concealer for under my eyes. It’s super creamy and hides my tired shadows.
I love wearing liquid liner but most of them make my eyes water…not Zuzu’s! It gives a precise line without irritation and doesn’t smear. I also like how easy it washes off at the end of the day. I use the brown for everyday casual and the black for a classic cat eye.
Okay, I’m about to gush over a floss. Have you ever looked forward to flossing your teeth? Neither did I before I started using this. There is something about the texture of the strand that clings to each tooth as it glides in and cleans between impeccably. Super satisfying and a cleaner mouth to boot.
This is all the stretch mark prevention I used during pregnancy and I lucked out without any! I mixed this with my body lotion and it perfectly hydrated every inch of my body. It is the purest you can get which was super important to me and it actually works. I love how it says on the label “For that special time, before, during and after pregnancy,” basically, you can add it to your regimen anytime, pregnant or not for soft skin.
I’ve been using this stuff since the beginning with my babe and his skin is so soft. I like the ingredients and that its simple to use on his body and hair (he was born with a good mop). It doesn’t hurt his eyes if a little gets in and has the softest most delicate scent which makes me want to eat my child.
Hands down the best hand sanitizer! No strong chemicals or fragrances yet it kills 99.9% of germs on contact and its moisturizing formula is gentle enough for babies. I get the small travel size and then refill them with the larger eco-refill bottle.
I know this is super healthy and full of protein and greens but I actually just like the taste. I like to mix extra peanut butter and cacao with my banana berry and spinach smoothies. Yum. I like all their products.
One of the best gluten-free pancake mixes I’ve found and I like to have this on-hand. I always will add a half of a banana per serving to the batter and it really makes these delish. It doesn’t say to on the instructions so don’t forget.
When you want a simple one ingredient protein to add to a smoothie that won’t change the flavor too much but is rich in plant nutrients, I go for this. The price is amazing too.
I’ve been making my own stovetop popcorn lately and it’s a game changer. I don’t know why I didn’t do this sooner but it’s a super easy and delicious snack. Here’s how I make it:
Classic Coconut Oil Popcorn Recipe
- Melt 3 tbs coconut oil in a pan over medium-medium high heat in a tall pot.
- Once it’s melted add 3 popcorn kernels
- Once all 3 of the kernels pop add 1/3 cup kernels
- Remove from the pot from the burner (while leaving the burner on) for 30 seconds while swirling the pot to make sure all the kernels are evenly covered and reach the same temperature.
- After 30 seconds, put the pot back on the burner and move the pot back and forth over burner periodically while the corn pops.
- Once you hear a break in the pops, for a few seconds, remove from stove and pour into a big bowl.
- Top with salt and nutritional yeast.
If you are obsessed with nutritional yeast like I am, get the bigger tub and put it on everything. If you’ve never tried nutritional yeast, don’t let the weird name fool you, it’s umami flavor is addicting. Put it on everything you’d put parmesan cheese on and skip the dairy and gain all those B vitamins.
Vegan chocolate chips that taste delicious and can be used for a ton of recipes. I like to add these to cookies, loaves and melt down for toppings. They also have a dark organic chunk for those bigger chocolate piece needs.
I love that this is a totally raw and vegan prenatal made from whole foods that do the job of giving you all the vital nutrients for before, during and after pregnancy. It’s super easy to take capsules didn’t make me as nauseous as other ones I’ve tried. I also liked these for nursing.
Super fun and easy spray of organic vitamin B12 when you need an extra boost.
My favorite way to take vitamin C is from a whole food source powder. This one is full of wild-gathered camu camu from the Amazon with organic acerola and an array of antioxidant-rich organic berries and sprouts. I feel an energy boost immediately after taking this and always have this in my cabinet. It’s great to take during the winter months to prevent viruses or anytime you feel one coming on. It’s also great for the skin.
Most of us are magnesium deficient and I find this to be a relaxing way to ensure I’m getting enough. If my muscles are sore or I’m having a hard time unwinding at the end of the day I will take this before bed and it usually helps me sleep.
I was looking for a really pure and organic daily cleanser and moisturizer during pregnancy and I found this to be one of the best I’ve tried. It has very simple and natural ingredients that didn’t irritate my skin. In fact, I don’t think my skin has looked has looked better than when I use this combo.
Giant tub of organic coconut oil at an amazing deal! I use this for cooking, delicious vegan treats and to moisturize my babies skin.
OMG. This. I love when a chocolate bar tastes authentic, like real dark, rich cacao, and creamy hazelnuts. Not overly sweet but really satisfying and because of the pure ingredients I don’t mind if I finish the bar.
I saved the best for last because these are the main reason I continuously order every month. The Vitacost label: nuts, seeds, beans, superfoods, oils, spices, chocolate chips etc. They have the best deal on organics with no membership. And they often times do buy one get one half off deals. Stock up on the goods!
