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
If you loved the thought of the Vitamin C 23 Serum from COSRX but your skin couldn't quite handle the potency just yet, try The Vitamin C 13 Serum instead! Perfect for beginners and sensitive skin, it uses a 13% concentration of pure vitamin C with Tocotrienol. Also known as Super Vitamin E, Tocotrienol is a powerful skin conditioner proven to mitigate the effects of sun damage (including hyperpigmentation). In addition, there's also soothing allantoin and hyaluronic acid for extra soothing and hydrating effects. It's a lot more moisturizing than the C 23 serum, and does a great job of brightening your complexion.
