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
A collagen serum that makes a real difference? We didn’t think there were many out there but along came Mary & May with its incredibly clean and simple Marine Collagen Serum!
The issue with the collagen used in most skincare is that its molecular size tends to be too large to be properly absorbed into the skin. However, 95% of this serum is low-molecular marine collagen, allowing it to sink right in. The jelly-like texture melts on application, isn’t greasy (hooray for oily skin) and seems to make a noticeable difference to fine lines in a matter of weeks. It’s fantastic.
Product of Korea.
Ageing skin or anyone whose skin concerns include sallowness and fine lines. This isn't a particularly hydrating serum, so if your skin is on the dry side, combine it with a heavy duty moisturizer.
Apply a moderate amount and gently massage into the skin after toning and any essence. Follow with your favourite moisturizer.
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.
