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've got oily or combination skin that's also sensitive, and wouldn't mind a boost of anti-ageing ingredients in your routine, then try Neogen's Surmedic Azulene Soothing pH Cleanser! This mildly acidic gel cleanser only requires a teeny amount to work into a silky lather. Perfect as a solo or second cleanse, the formula is packed with soothing and anti-ageing ingredients such as guaiazulene, allantoin, hyaluronic acid and hydrolyzed collagen. It's ultra-gentle and non-stripping, but still manages to cut through makeup, SPF, dirt and impurities.
Product of Korea.
Frankly, we think this cleanser is great on any skin type but it is especially adored by oily and combination skin. Word to the wise - while it doesn't contain any perfumes, the formula does include fragrant plant oils such as lavender and rosemary (typical Neogen). Avoid if you're particularly sensitive to essential oils.
All you need is a pea-sized amount (no really). Lather by adding water and working into a foam before applying it on the face. Rinse off with lukewarm water.
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.
