Yay—let's recycle! Here’s a quick guide for when you've finished using all your products:
1. Make the products 'recycle ready' by rinsing it out and cleaning it. What if the product doesn't work for me? Give it to someone who might like to try it! That way, you will minimise wastage and give the product a second home. ♡♡
2. Get the DETAILS! Typically, most skin care packaging is recyclable in Australia, but what can and can’t be recycled depends on where you live. A quick Google search will reveal a recycling guideline based on your state / territory.
3. Can I put this in my recycling bin? If you've checked and the answer is 'yes', give these items a second life and put them in the recycling bin. If it's not, look into enterprises like TerraCycle, to help you properly recycle your beauty products. If the product is recycable through TerraCycle, it is FREE and all you have to do is gather your empty products together, print a recycling label and ship it out - that’s it! They’ll take care of the rest for you.
FYI, recycling plants uses numbers ranging from 1 to 7 to help sort all the materials. PETE stands for Polyethylene Terephthalate and PP stands for Polypropylene — these are both plastics. PAP represents paper / mixed paper / cardboard. See Earth Easy to learn more about your plastics.
That's it babes! Remember to love our earth; love our planet! #dontbetrashy

Frequently Asked Questions
What does Beauty of Joseon Revive Serum do?
Formerly known as the Repair Serum, the Beauty of Joseon Revive Serum does a few things at once! Firstly, snail mucin reinforces the skin's moisture barrier, while niacinamide helps to reduce skin sensitivity. Secondly, ginseng root water supports circulation and improves skin texture. Licorice root gently brightens the complexion, and trehalose boosts hydration levels. It's a great SOS serum.
Is Beauty of Joseon Revive Serum good for acne?
The Beauty of Joseon Revive Serum can be good for acne, given snail mucin has anti-bacterial properties and the serum helps to heal a broken skin barrier (something which can worsen acne breakouts). However, we think an even better serum for those prone to acne is Beauty of Joseon's Glow Serum, which uses propolis and niacinamide to soothe redness, hydrate without clogging and help fade acne scars.
Is Beauty of Joseon a Korean brand?
Beauty of Joseon is indeed a Korean brand, with its beauty philosophy based on the 'hanbang' herbal beauty recipes from the famed Joseon dynasty.
Is Beauty of Joseon Revive Serum good for oily skin?
The Beauty of Joseon Revive Serum isn't bad for oily skin, in that it won't aggravate sebum production and can actually help rebalance skin that's dehydrated and overcompensating by churning out excess oil. However, we think the Beauty of Joseon Glow Serum is a better fit for oily skin, with the 2% niacinamide and propolis content more active in regulating sebum levels.
Does the Beauty of Joseon Revive Serum cause irritation
In and of itself, the Beauty of Joseon Revive Serum shouldn't cause irritation; in fact, it can go a long way to treat skin irritation. Its ingredients list is clean and gentle, and the formula doesn't use any fragrances (natural or artificial). With that said, we always recommend patch testing first - particularly if your skin has a tendency to breakout.
How well does the Beauty of Joseon Revive Serum improve skin texture?
The Beauty of Joseon Revive Serum can improve skin texture, thanks to ingredients like niacinamide (for reducing irritation and redness), snail mucin (improving skin barrier), trehalose (boosting hydration), licorice root (gently brightening) and ginseng root water (aiding circulation).
