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
We're peachy keen for Anua's Peach 70% Niacin Serum! This deliciously peach-scented baby essentially does 3 things: (1) Brighten; (2) Hydrate; and (3) Clarify. Let's unpack that. 5% niacinamide combined with alpha arbutin helps fade old acne scars and restore an even skin tone. Betaine salicylate gently clarifies pores, while hyaluronic acid, polyglutamic acid and peach fruit extract hydrates and nourishes skin. The lightweight texture of the serum absorbs quickly without tackiness, and leaves skin more radiant with each use. While it contains a teeny bit of added fragrance, we didn't find it overpowering or irritating (but patch test first on your skin, obvi).
