Say goodbye to makeup wipes and that ever-growing pile of skincare bottles because eco-friendly beauty tools are here to stay.
We’ve switched takeaway cups for keep cups, swapped out plastic straws for metal straws and opted out of plastic bags when doing groceries…now it’s time to move into the beauty space.
Using sustainable beauty tools such as reusable makeup remover pads and skincare sponges are an environmentally-friendly, cost-effective way to look after your skin.
The sad truth about using makeup wipes or any type of wipe for that matter, are that they can take up to 100 years to properly decompose.
Alongside this, most skincare products unfortunately rely on plastic packaging causing an absurd amount of unnecessary waste.
To combat this consumer-driven environmental crisis, we’ve come up with our favourite sustainable beauty tools that have helped save the planet, one day at a time.
The Sabbia Co Trio Cleanse Kit comes with 3 Konjac sponges that can be used with water to gently cleanse and exfoliate the face.
The sponges are 100% biodegradable and help to reduce breakouts, blemishes, acne, oily skin whilst also acting as a makeup remover.
The Green Tea Konjac sponge specifically targets acne-prone skin as it is full of antioxidants and thus soothes and revitalises tired and dull skin.
The Charcoal Konjac spongeacts as a great exfoliatorto rid of any dirt or excess makeup built up during the day, leaving the face clear and soft.
The Turmeric Konjac sponge works as an anti-inflammatory agent to reduce redness and leave the skin with a natural glow.
Working hard to reduce the amount of single use plastics that end up in the ocean, Face Halo have created reusable makeup remover pads with HaloTech fibres that can remove any makeup or oil build-up with ease.
The Face Halo Original pad replaces 500 single-use makeup wipes and only needs water to actively remove makeup.
After a few uses, it can be tossed into the laundry for cleaning before it’s next cycle.
The Face Halo X is the latest addition to the Face Halo family.
With a smaller surface area and a finger pouch design that can easily slip into your purse, the Face Halo X is the ultimate sustainable tool for makeup touch ups.
Instead of using cotton swabs or the corners of a makeup wipe to correct smudged lipstick or crooked eyeliner, the Face Halo X can quickly remove any makeup blunders that may occur throughout the day or night.
The reusable Beauty Blender is a sustainable alternative to disposable makeup wedges.
Not only is the beauty blender a cost-effective substitute, it also gives a more seamless finish to any makeup look.
From low to high coverage, the beauty blender is a makeup bag staple that will help you achieve a flawless foundation application.
All you need to do is wet it under that tap and apply your foundation, lightly bouncing the sponge across your face to blend.
The aqua-activated sponge is made from 100% recyclable materials so after 3 months of use you can be at peace with the fact that this beauty tool isn’t adding to yet another pile of unnecessary waste.
