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
Missha - Time Revolution Night Repair Ampoule 5X - 50ml
The Queen of Constantly Upgrading, Missha has released its Time Revolution Night Repair Ampoule 5X. This is the brand’s fifth-generation version of its celebrated overnight probiotic treatment. So what's the difference between this and the Time Revolution Night Repair Probio Ampoule?
Well, the formula is basically the same, but the composition is slightly different: 5X contains a far higher concentration of probiotics (including the star ingredient bifida ferment lysate) at circa ~77%. The OG formula meanwhile, sits at just over 50%. Both will give you brighter, firmer and hydrated skin, albeit 5X is designed to give your complexion a more potent shot of fermented goodness.
Product of Korea.
This is great for all skin types, and is even gentle enough for use on sensitive and acne-prone skin. However, avoid if your skin doesn't react well to essential oils.
Use twice daily after the toning/essence step of your routine, and before applying any serums or moisturizers.
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.
