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
Some By Mi - Retinol Intense Advanced Triple Action Eye Cream - 30ml
We love our retinol because it is fine-line erasing excellence: but with that said, vitamin A is a powerful ingredient that can annoy sensitive skin. So, we love it even more when it comes in a formula specifically developed for the thinner and more delicate skin around the eyes! Enter Some By Mi's Retinol Intense Advanced Triple Action Eye Cream. Retinol, collagen and peptides come together in a lamellar formula, which basically means its structure is more stable and less irritating. Panthenol and cica provide extra soothing, while niacinamide and trehalose boost its wrinkle-fighting credentials. Your under-eye area will look smooth, youthful and well-rested.
Ideal for all skin types, to combat signs of ageing.
At the last step of the evening skincare routine, after cleansing, take an adequate amount and gently pat onto the areas around the eyes. If it's your first time using a retinol product, introduce it slowly into your routine, starting with once weekly and gradually building up frequency if your skin permits. Don't combine with exfoliating acids.
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.
