Greetings, dear eco-warriors!
It’s Marina Wright, back with another instalment of your eco-conscious journey. Today, we’re going to dive headfirst into the world of beauty. If you’ve ever wondered, “Can I be both glamorous and green?”, I’m here to tell you: absolutely, yes! So, let’s uncover some of the best zero-waste beauty products to create a sustainable routine that makes you feel as good as you look.
1. Cleanser: Ethique Bliss Bar
We begin our beautifying journey with the essential first step: cleansing. Step forward, Ethique’s Bliss Bar. This cleansing bar is gentle, and moisturising, and comes in compostable packaging. I daresay, what could be more blissful than a clear conscience and a clear complexion?
2. Toner: Wild Sage + Co Rose Water
Who said you need to compromise luxury in your eco journey? This divine rose water toner from Wild Sage + Co comes in a beautiful glass bottle, is lovingly handmade, and leaves your skin feeling fresh and toned.
3. Serum: UpCircle Organic Face Serum with Coffee Oil
Embrace the power of reusing with UpCircle’s Organic Face Serum. Made with repurposed coffee grounds, this magical elixir nourishes and hydrates your skin. Plus, it comes in a glass bottle with a metal cap – goodbye, plastic!
4. Moisturiser: Friendly Soap Natural Shea Butter
This natural, unfragranced shea butter from Friendly Soap does wonders for your skin and comes in a tin that you can reuse or recycle. Who knew being friendly to the planet could make you glow this much?
5. Mascara: ZAO Volume and Sheathing Mascara
Eco beauty doesn’t stop at skincare. Enter ZAO’s Volume and Sheathing Mascara. Its bamboo casing is not just stylish; it’s sustainable too. The best part? When it’s time for a new one, you only need to replace the mascara tube inside, keeping waste to a minimum.
6. Lipstick: Elate Cosmetics Lipstick
Brighten up your pout with Elate Cosmetics’ vibrant range of lipsticks, encased in a bamboo tube. Not only are these lipsticks creamy and moisturising, but they also offer an eco-friendly refill system that’s utterly lip-smacking!
7. Brushes: So Eco Makeup Brush Collection
Let’s not forget those vital tools – makeup brushes! So Eco offers a collection of cruelty-free, handcrafted brushes with handles made from sustainable bamboo. It’s a brush stroke of genius if you ask me.
There we have it, my lovelies – a full beauty routine that loves you back and loves the planet too. By making these small changes, we’re making a big difference, one lipstick, one mascara, one cleanser at a time. Here’s to a beautiful, sustainable you!
Stay green and glamorous,
