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
Is COSRX Centella Blemish Cream good for acne?
The COSRX Centella Blemish Cream was literally made for acne and congestion. Just dab it on the problem area, and watch the redness and inflammation reduce. It'll also provide sufficient hydration to the skin around the blemish, reducing the risk or severity of scarring.
Can I apply Centella Blemish Cream all over my face?
Rather than applying the Centella Blemish Cream all over your face like a moisturizer, use it like a spot cream and use it on the blemish-prone areas or on breakouts. Combine it with an ordinary moisturizer for the rest of your face.
Is COSRX Centella Blemish Cream good for sensitive skin?
The COSRX Centella Blemish Cream is good for sensitive skin for a couple of reasons: COSRX use very clean ingredients in their formulations, meaning any COSRX product is unlikely to cause irritation on sensitive skin. The other reason is that it contains cica (i.e. centella), which has natural anti-inflammatory properties - making it very calming.
Can Centella get rid of acne scars?
Centella itself isn't one of the more well-known ingredients for getting rid of acne scars - but combined with stronger ingredients such as acids, retinol or vitamin C, it can do a good job in reducing post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Cica can reduce inflammation and redness around a scar effectively while acids or vitamins can lighten it.
What does COSRX Blemish Cream do?
The COSRX Blemish Cream is designed to calm big, red, angry breakouts and speed the healing of zits. It gently hydrates to prevent peeling, and can lessen the appearance of blemishes too.
