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
UpCircle Beauty - Organic Face Serum With Coffee Oil - 30ml
The reviews for this product are as glowing as your skin's gonna be when you try this baby! UpCircle's Organic Face Serum with Coffee Oil blends vitamin C-rich sea buckthorn, rosehip oil and caffeine to make a nourishing formula that brightens the complexion. More like a facial oil than a serum in the traditional sense, you can also use it for "slugging" after your evening skincare routine because of its occlusive qualities.
How this product has been upcycled:UpCircle uses coffee oil extracted from repurposed grounds.
And here's what else you should know: All of UpCircle's products are 100% vegan, cruelty-free dermatologically approved and come in fully recyclable packaging.

Perfect for those who want to target hyperpigmentation or fade acne scars but don't really gel with pure vitamin C serums. Sea Buckthorn is a great alternative for sensitive skin.
TIP: This serum is also excellent as a hair or beard oil – jojoba oil softens hair whilst rosehip keeps the skin beneath healthy and reduces irritation.
Apply on clean skin before or after your moisturizer (or both), morning and night. You can also dot some along the cheekbones after your routine for an extra glow.
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.
