The Best Brandless Products

The Best Brandless Products

If you can’t tell by now, Brandless is one of my favorite brands out there. It all started when they hired me to promote a pop-up they were doing in New York last year. After touring the space with their marketing team and learning about the company, I fell in love. I’ve placed an order every month since then.

For anyone who isn’t familiar with the brand, Brandless is a direct-to-consumer food, home, and now baby and pet brand that makes all of their products with quality materials and clean ingredients. Their sourcing philosophy is: better for people, better for the planet. Their food products are organic and Fair Trade, paper products are tree-free, cleaning supplies are non-toxic and refillable, and beauty products are free from over 400 questionable ingredients.

And the real kicker is that everything I’ve tried is A+. You can tell that this company does their research and works hard to create really wonderful products at an extremely low price-point. You can read more about them here if you’re interested.

When I first met them, everything on their entire site was $3. That was their whole schtick! Most products are still $3 today but some are priced a little higher (like diapers) so I’ve noted the price on my favorite products below, only if it isn’t the usual $3.

Here is a list of my family’s favorite Brandless products. This post is in no way sponsored but I have worked with them in the past.

Food- Kitchen Essentials

Coconut sugar: I only bake with coconut sugar now (instead of cane sugar) but it can be expensive. $3 for a bag of this stuff is a serious deal.

Organic maple syrup (Grade A): As someone who was born and raised in New Hampshire, I usually only buy my maple when I go back home to visit, but in a pinch

Olive oil spray ($4): We use this for grilling and when I don’t need a lot of oil in the pan for a recipe. Great olive oil flavor.

Organic virgin coconut oil: Brandless coconut oil is a cult favorite because it’s a product that is traditionally pricey.

Raw apple cider vinegar: I don’t think this is necessarily any better than other ACV’s but the price sure is.

Unbleached white flour: I like to buy their pantry basics like flour because I know they’ll be free of any questionable ingredients or preservatives. Their gluten-free all-purpose flour ($4)  is also supposed to be great.

Hazelnut spread ($4): As delicious as Nutella but organic and made with responsibly sourced cocoa and palm oil

Matcha green tea powder: I mix this with hot water and frothed oat milk to make my own matcha lattés at home. Great flavor!

Organic unsweetened golden milk mix: This is one of my favorite afternoon treats. I just mix it with warm frothed oat milk and it’s delish.

Food- Snacks

Dry-roasted, salted pistachios: I’ve never seen pistachios at this great of a price. Anel eats them as a snack almost every day

Sour Gummy Worms: What can I say except that I’m an addict. I LOVE sour gummy candy and it’s nice to know when I eat these that they aren’t full of artificial dyes and flavors. Fun fact, these worms are colored with veggie extracts from red cabbage, paprika, and turmeric (don’t worry, you can’t taste it!).

Sweet potato crisps: These are so delicious I can’t even put it into words. If you’re craving something sweet, but not too sweet, this is your answer. They’re dusted in cinnamon sugar and my mouth is watering just writing about them.

Beauty

Mint foot cream ($6): I use this every night on my feet before bed and they are super soft when I wake up in the mornings. The foot cream I used to use was full of crap so it feels good to be putting this on my body. I also love that the mint scent isn’t too strong.

Coconut water body butter ($8): This is a sleeper favorite. I keep a tub of it in my kitchen and use it on my hands and forearms after washing dishes or whenever I think of it. It is silky and creamy but soaks right in. And the smell is heavenly! It’s a light, clean coconut scent that doesn’t smell artificial or too strong.

Organic cotton rounds (100/pack): I go through 4 cotton rounds every day (two in the morning and two at night) for my skincare routine, so I wanted to make sure I was using a product made from organic cotton. Heads up that they are thinner than other cotton rounds so don’t drench them in toner or whatever you use them for.  A little product goes a long way on these which is another benefit.

Home

Silicone kitchen utensils ($4-$9): I needed a new spatula so I bought one of theirs. It was surprisingly sturdy and hefty so I bought more of the utensils and love them all.

Silicone ice cube tray (2pk for $6): We use these big ice cubes for serving cocktails because they look nice and also melt more slowly than a bunch of smaller ice cubes.

Refillable cucumber mint glass cleaner ($6): Great clean alternative to Windex.

Quarter sheet pan ($9): I love these so much that I included them in my July random things post!

Pet

Dog Shampoo & Conditioner: It’s sulfate and paraben-free, contains no synthetic colors or fragrances, and no animal testing. We wash him with it and give it to our dog groomer when she comes too. It suds up nicely and makes him nice and clean without smelling like soap which I know he hates. They also have a tear-free puppy shampoo for $5 that I haven’t tried.

Freeze-Dried Chicken Breast Treats: Bootsie loves these treats and will literally leap from the other room if he hears us say chicken treat. I love that the ingredient list consists only of chicken. They also make chicken liver and salmon treats but the chicken breast has the least offensive smell and he’s into it so that’s our family favorite. Because it’s Brandless, they’re only $3/bag which is a lot more affordable than any other natural dog treats that I’ve seen.

Daily Multivitamin Chews ($9): We only started giving these to Boots last week so I don’t have much to say about them yet. Boots won’t eat them on their own but I put one in his food in the morning and at night daily. I hope they help contribute to a long life for my baby boy!

Baby

Organic Applesauce Pouches ($3):

Diapers ($11): Their diapers are made with wood pulp from sustainably managed forests which might be the coolest thing ever, and they’re the only natural diapers we’ve used (and we’ve tried them all) that actually work. They’re only $11 per bag and the diaper-count changes as you move up in sizes, but rangest from 50 diapers (size 1) to 23 diapers (size 6).

    Cool! I just filled up a cart with several of your recommended items. Have you tried any of their essential oils? I like Eucalyptus for my diffuser but I’ve found different brands of oils have different qualities and scents.

      I just bought the Eucalyptus one for my diffuser and have been using it all week. It’s definitely not as quality as DoTerra which is what I usually use, but for the price I think it’s actually incredible.

    Thank you so much for this post Julia! I’ve been wanting to try Brandless and it’s nice to have some entry points :). Btw, I finally bought some reusable cotton rounds on Amazon and they are fantastic. They are so soft and wash really well. I thought they might absorb too much product, but they really don’t. Like you, I used so many disposables a day. I think you might really like them!
