Refillable Skincare

Took me long enough to get around to this refillable makeup brands and products post after my refillable makeup brands post, but we’re finally here and I’m very excited about it.

I’m such a creature of habit that once I find a makeup or skincare product I love, I don’t want to try others and so the idea of a refillable items is very intriguing. Saving that outer – often superficial – single-use packaging is the bees knees in my little world.

And while makeup recycling options do exist, they are few and far between. Not to mention, it’s all just wasteful – regardless of if it can technically be recycled.

So let’s clear up a few things. First, the most-most sustainable skincare option is something that’s made at home – if that’s up your alley.

I did make my own face wash a few times with a recipe from Jlia Watkin’s book and quite liked it.

But let’s be real, I’m here for the luxurious magic of professional skincare and beauty brands. No shame!

The next most sustainable options is buying from a refill store. I have ABSOLUTELY done this. I’ve done body oil, body lotion, and various oils for my face. It’s lovely.

But it doesn’t quite give me that luxurious magic I mentioned above. And I want to look as pretty as I can – you know beyond trying to drink all the water and get enough sleep!

So, let’s get to the refillable skincare that is along those lines of magical…
