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
AXIS-Y - Complete No-Stress Physical Sun Cream - 50ml
The Complete No-Stress Physical Sun Cream from AXIS-Y is surprisingly tan-skin friendly! Despite using zinc oxide and titanium dioxide as UV filters (both are excellent but notorious for leaving a white cast), it blends really well on skin tones 1 to the lighter shade of 5 on the Fitzpatrick scale. The creamy formula is suitable for dry and sensitive skin, with mugwort, 2% niacinamide, squalane and green tea extract for extra moisture and antioxidant protection. And like all AXIS-Y's products, it's free from artificial colorants, mineral oils, fragrances and parabens.
Product of Korea.

Great on dry and sensitive skin. If you have tan or olive skin, take your time blending it into your skin - the white cast should disappear. It's not entirely suitable for skin tones on the deeper side of Fitzpatrick 5 and upwards, although you can blend it with your favourite foundation for a lovely tinted formula.
Use over your moisturizer at the last step of your skincare routine in the morning or before sun exposure. Don't forget to re-apply every couple of hours!
Precautions: Stop using the product immediately and consult a dermatologist when redness, swelling, or other skin irritations occur, and consult a physician. Avoid applying the product on open wounds or skin inflammation. Keep away from direct sunlight and out of reach of infants and children.
