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

This exfoliating solution is ideal for combatting dullness, clogged pores and hyperpigmentation on oilier and combination skin types in particular. If you have dry or sensitive skin, reduce frequency of use and follow up with a facial oil. The glycolic acid concentration is fairly high at 7%. Darker skin tones may find it irritating (try a mandelic acid solution instead, if that's the case).
Soak a cotton pad with the product and gently wipe across the face after cleansing. Follow with a facial oil or soothing serum to ease redness. Use 3-4x per week, depending on your skin's tolerance. Use only at night as chemical exfoliation increases your skin's vulnerability to the sun. Always remember to wear SPF during the day!
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.
