There's no doubt that we are all aware of climate change, and I believe that the majority of us are veering towards products and brands that are eco-friendly, with sustainability being more than a buzz word or a trend..... even Love Island will be ditching fast fashion this year! When it comes to beauty, I know that being a blogger may appear to produce a lot of waste, or that I'm encouraging you to constantly buy new products. Believe me when I say that none of my products go to waste - I post my empties on Instagram regularly, and if a product doesn't work for me, it will be passed on to somebody who I know will enjoy it. I also declutter my makeup every 6 months (sometimes more frequently) and will give products that I just don't reach for, to teenagers within my extended family members and friends. You may still think that blogging is all about consumerism, but I don't consider myself to be an 'influencer' - I just give you an unbiased opinion on a product, and if you have a similar skin type to me, have similar needs in terms of skin and haircare, you might buy the product, and let's face it, some things are necessities! With all of that in mind, today I want to share products from my favourite beauty brands, which are already sustainable, or are moving in that direction. I personally love refillable products, as it cuts down on unnecessary waste. Please tell me of other brands or products that you know are refillable, but I haven't mentioned, as I'm always willing to learn.
L'Occitane*: Always ahead of the game, this brand is committed to reducing waste, and aims to ensure that 100% of its bottles are made from 100% recycled plastic by 2025. They have refillable haircare, shower sets (where you can buy a shower gel or oil in its original bottle, plus a refillable pouch), hand soaps, and its famous Immortelle Overnight Reset Serum. Plus, you can buy a bottle with a pump (in two sizes), if you want to start, but don't have an empty bottle. Also, this weekend (May 26-29th), a donation of £5 or 5 euros, will be made to Clean Coasts, as part of their Green Day weekend, so there has never been a better time to start your sustainability journey. Also, if you buy two Eco Refill products, you will receive a free 250ml Forever Bottle, by using the code FOREVER at the checkout.
Mugler fragrances*: I was absolutely delighted when I recently discovered that Mugler have refillable stations in certain stores, plus refillable bottles available to purchase if there is no store near you. Other fragrances include Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb and Lancôme Idole. Escentric Molecules also has refillable travel sized bottles, which are also handbag friendly. Chanel also sell refillable bottles.
Kiehl"s*: Kiehl's offer refill pouches of shampoos, conditioner, body wash, soap, and even its famous Creme De Corps. Each pouch offers 4 refills, so they offer a financial saving, as well as a sustainable one.
Dermalogica: Daily Microfoliant* This cult product just got better when it introduced this refill pack. In case you've been living under a rock and haven't heard about it, it's an exfoliating powder that is gentle enough for daily use (hence the name), but effective enough to keep skin looking clear and feeling smooth. I've been using it for 20 years at this stage.I'm sure they will release more refillable products in the future.
Therapie: I've been repurchasing the Himalayan Detox Bath Salts refill pack for years, as it's just so convenient. I think I've only ever bought two jars, one of which was for my mother, and I've been using these for around 8 years. They are absolutely brilliant if you just can't sleep - these will have you snoring within 20 minutes, and you'll sleep blissfully for the night!
Charlotte Tilbury: Charlotte's Magic Skin Trilogy of skincare products are now refillable - Magic Cream, Magic Night Cream and Magic Eye Rescue. Plus one of the best bronzers of all time - Airbrush Bronzer, is refillable too! I am really delighted by this, because the packaging of these products is a work of art, so it would be a shame for them to go to waste.
Do you use refillable beauty products, or if you don't already, are you tempted to now? I'd love to hear!
Thanks for reading!
