25 Trader Joe's Beauty Products That Are Actually Amazing

We don't know about you, but when we go to Trader Joe's, we tend to fill a cart (or two) to the brim with a whole lot more than frozen pizzas and cookie butter. In fact, there's a whole land of overlooked potential in the store's health and beauty section — it's just taken us a while to tap into it.
But, we're majorly glad we did. You may think that groceries and beauty don't mix, but Trader Joe's proves otherwise, lining its shelves with high-quality beauty and skin-care goodies. It's a very welcome discovery, too, because we'd rather grab our makeup remover and microwaveable samosas in the same trip instead of schlepping all over town with heavy bags.
