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
Mary & May - Idebenone & Blackberry Complex Intensive Total Care Cream - 70g
The Idebenone & Blackberry Complex Intensive Total Care Cream from Mary & May will give your skin that hydrated bounce. We love the texture and feel of this champagne-tinted moisturizer: it’s thick, but still lightweight and silky without being greasy. Basically, it’s perfect for combination skin. Ceramides and hyaluronic acid sort out a dry U-zone without overwhelming an oily T-zone. Plus, the formula uses a variety of anti-ageing ingredients such as adenosine, antioxidant-rich blackberry extract, niacinamide and idebenone. Similar in function to coenzyme Q10, idebenone can reduce the appearance of fine lines, improve hydration levels and even out the skin tone.
Product of Korea.
Perfect on combination skin with anti-ageing goals. Tip – this makes a perfect night-time pair with Mary & May’s Peptide Serum.
Apply a moderate amount and gently massage onto slightly damp skin after any toners, essences and serums (in that order).
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.
