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
Etude House - Soon Jung Director's Mineral Filter Sun Cream SPF50+ PA++++ - 50ml
This SPF has made the Director's cut! The Soon Jung Director's Mineral Filter Sun Cream is the product of a collaboration between Etude House and wildly popular Korean beauty YouTuber, Director P.
This vegan, physical sun cream offers a broadspectrum (and independently verified) SPF of 50+ PA++++. The slightly thick but blendable texture is fairly moisturizing, making it ideal for skin on the dry side. The formula also includes cica extracts and cica compounds for additional soothing effects.
Product of Korea.
If you have sensitive or combination skin on the dry side, we think you'll like this mineral formula. Unfortunately, this isn't one for olive, tan or deep skin tones as it leaves a white cast. We'd recommend it for fair skin tones only.
At the last step of your skincare routine, apply an appropriate amount evenly all over your kanvas. Pat gently to enhance absorption. Don't forget to re-apply every two hours when you're out in the sun!
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.
