Make your self-care routine more sustainable by using refillable beauty products.
By Annabel Fuller
Most of us want to be more eco-friendly. We refuse single-use plastics, substitute vegan alternatives into our diets and rather have our groceries spilling from our arms than grab a plastic bag. But what about beauty? Our bathroom products are a huge source of waste, from plastic shower gel bottles to disposable razors. Instead of buying a whole new product with excess packaging, why not purchase a refill? Here are our favourite refillable beauty products to reduce plastic consumption.
ColourPop Create Your Own Palette
There are many refillable palettes to choose from, but what we love about ColourPop is how affordable and high-quality their products are. From just $25 you can fill the entire palette with any combination of shadows, bronzers, highlighters and blushes. Whether you’re filling gaps in your eyeshadow collection or just want one easy palette that you can take with you anywhere, this refillable palette is the gift that keeps on giving.
Hourglass Confession Ultra Slim High-Intensity Refillable Lipstick
Points for chicest lipstick on any vanity definitely goes to this refillable one from Hourglass. The gold tapered tube is impossibly beautiful, and in 30 shades, you’re bound to find at least a few that you absolutely love. The formula is a satin finish that easily glides onto the lips for a perfectly kissable pout.
OUAI is the hottest new hair care product. Their line of products includes refillable shampoo, conditioners, heat-protectants and more. What we love about QUAI is their sustainable packaging that uses 60% less plastic than rigid plastic bottles and all packaging is recyclable as it is made from post-consumer-resin (recycled plastics).
Isle of Paradise Self-Tanning Water
Dubbed the Holy Grail of Tan, Isle of Paradise delivers a mess-free tan having your skin looking bronzed and radiant. This simple to apply mist isn’t just great for your complexion but also for the planet. As well as being vegan and cruelty-free, all Isle of Paradise products are 100% recyclable and all self-tanning waters are available as refills to cut down your plastic waste.

And what’s even better is all their cartridges are refillable and 20% of sales are currently being donated to breast cancer research.
