WANT TO MAKE WAITING IN THE CHECKOUT LINE AT WHOLE FOODS FEEL A LITTLE LESS ENDLESS? DURING OUT LAST GROCERY SHOPPING TRIP, WE DECIDED TO DO A LITTLE FIELD RESEARCH AND CHECK OUT WHOLE FOOD’S BEAUTY IMPULSE BUYS. THESE PRODUCTS ARE CONVENIENTLY LOCATED RIGHT ALONG THE CHECKOUT AISLE, SO YOU CAN PERUSE WHILE YOU WAIT. HERE ARE SOME OF OUR FAVORITES.
Don’t let the name scare you—we promise that this candle doesn’t smell like that chain-smoking, bad influence guy you thought it would be cool to date for 5 seconds in college before you wised up. Instead, this candle has a subtle, woodsy scent that will make your apartment smell like a comforting campfire. The resulting musk will last for hours, but it won’t assault your senses. This also makes it a perfect , no-brainer gift—no matter how much (or little) someone likes scented candles, they’ll be sure to appreciate this one.
You’ll be amazed at how absorbent this product is—this will not feel gunky or sticky as you rub it on. It’s both delicate and decadent at the same time. The formula’s blood orange feels light (and smells amazing), while the bourbon vanilla anchors and deepens this blend of fragrances. It’s gentle, non-irritating, and just plain pleasant to put on, plus it won’t out-stage any perfume you may want to apply later. This Body Milk also happens to be gluten free and certified organic, so pretty much anyone can use it, no matter their dietary or ethical restrictions.
We all love bright pink, deep red, and electric blue nail polishes, but sometimes you need to choose a hue that’s a little more muted. This neutral shade will carry you stylishly into fall, with its sophisticated cream overtones and mature matted finish. Did we mention it’s 100% vegan, formaldehyde, and cruelty free? This may be the healthiest nail polish you ever buy. Since it lacks so many harmful ingredients, it doesn’t reek of chemicals like other products. Never again will applying nail polish leave you gasping for air.
Can’t find the solution to those persistently pesky dark circles under your eyes? This product will do the trick. No matter how late you stay up, this eye brightener will make your face look like you got your full 8 hours. The natural minerals that make up this formula will energize, awaken, and brighten skin, even if you still need two more cups of coffee to function. And although it’s a face brightener, it doesn’t leave your skin looking glittery, like you just got back from a middle school dance you wore body shimmer to. Instead, you’ll just look younger and more well-rested...and who doesn’t want that?
Are your makeup removing wipes running out too fast for you (and your wallet) to keep up? Well then please allow us to introduce you to this Coconut Cream Cleanser, which will become your new best friend. And as a product that works overtime as a makeup remover, skin cleanser, moisturizer, and conditioner all at once, it might even be more reliable than some of your human friends. It’s made from certified organic, raw, unrefined virgin coconut oil, which possess unbelievable nourishing qualities, and is full of enzymes that work to clear pores. As an added bonus to those who hold stress in their neck and face muscles, the soft scent and creaminess of coconut oil also naturally releases tension, so you’ll find yourself feeling zen enough to take on the Whole Foods rush hour with a kind of poise to rival Kate Middleton’s.
